    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Can you describe, at this time, the longest SSM time for the eCat SK Leonardo achieved? Seconds, minutes, hours?

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    No, I prefer to wait the conclusion of this R&D and give the final result.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    @JPR,
    I agree with you. Also we must consider that the 230 recommendations have been made by researchers amd professors that have publicly signed them and all of them are listed on Researchgate as researchers and prof of scientific matters, many of them speciaolists in nuclear physics, so that it is the most peer reviewed paper of its specific field.
    Cheers
    Prof

    Dear Andrea.
    yout paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    is actually viral: ASs of today reached 32651 full readings and more than 230 recommendations, it is progressing at an average of over 100 full readings per day, from all the world. Unbelievable.
    Any progress about the publication derived from your experiment on course ?
    All the best,
    Jean Paul

  5. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    I still am stunned about the attention dedicated to this theoretical-experimental publication.
    About the theoretical progress: yes, we are finding experimental confirmations of all the theoretical hypothesis made in the paper. Some theories have been confirmed experimentally for the first time in the world. Our Team is making an outstanding job.
    Our work is proceeding better than expected.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    @ Consciousness:

    If he would open his tech to the world, then the wildfire would start burning and anyone could continue to develop it in parallel to finally spolve the latest issues with the ecat’s.
    This would be a major improvement, and perhaps we already would have had a working machine.
    This is necessary to finally stop the climate change. But as long Rossi does not open his science to others, no one will ever believe in him and/or take him seriously.

    Ulrich W.A. Kranz:
    An e-car may be equipped with a minimal battery and in addition a Carnot cycle-based engine, able to continuously generate electricity of 12 to 15 kWh/h to support the battery. The engine will also produce at least 24 to 30 kWh/h, normally wasted or useless, heat.

    When parked at home, the generator will deliver power to the grid. (Money is earned instead of payed. The same may be done at your job.) No worry for grid overload!
    The double amount of free energy may also, by help of “Water-hose quick-couplings” be supplied to the owner’s house. Only an extra heat exchanger in the car is needed.

    This will supply the home with additional energy by hot water of 80 deg C to heat: the house, a swimming pool, a greenhouse or an absorption chiller to provide AC, when needed.

    If the Carnot cycle-based engine receives its energy from a steam producing E-Cat, this whole energy supply may happen without any known pollution or bothersome noise.
    Whether the E-Cat is operating in ssm or not, seems in this situation of minor importance. The extended use of an environmentally friendly energy source is of great importance.

    Obtainable thermal energy may also be environmentally stored at the mansion in a hot water tank and/or an ice-water tank, for use while the car is on the road.

    If an E-Cat, with a 36-kW capacity, in the future, may be able to produce 33 % of its energy directly as electricity and the rest as heat, the same will be possible without the Carnot cycle-based engine in this energy supply.

    The described advantageous property of the E-Cat to produce energy, on spot, independent of sun, wind, wires, pipes, heavy and large volumes hydrocarbons to be transported, makes it to a winner in addition to its directly environmentally friendly use, when or if it emerges on the marked.

    Regards: Svein Henrik.

    Conscience,

    Your condescending attitude is both rude and obnoxious. Your assumption is that if someone “opens up their technology”, the world will rush in to greet it. Experience paints a different picture. Monetary interests threatened by the improvement will rush to crush it. Government leaders will rush to control it. Military people will rush to weaponize it.

    If the eCat technology is a fraud, then it will never be commercially used. Since it appears to be commercially used, we can infer that it is unlikely a fraud.

    If all the “secrets” were released but the performance could not be independently duplicated (as in Cold Fusion), then the technology will be ridiculed and valid research stopped or stymied. Leave AR along to do his thing and wish him the best if you truly care about the world.

  10. Steven N. Karels

    Svein Henrik,

    I now understand what you are saying. Giving the Carnot efficiency of less than 40% for Sterling or small turbine generators, you will need an eCat with the thermal output of about 30kW to meet the 12 kWhr/hr electrical demand. Yes, the battery size required on the car can be reduced but you still have a significant cooling issue. Not a problem if the vehicle is in motion (air convection). But it could be an issue if the vehicle is parked.

    Plus you will need to provide a unit that is crash-resistant. The more probable immediate application of current eCat technology will be in Carnot cycle electricity generation and normal distribution of the electrical energy to users.

    Perhaps that is why AR is so intent on the eCat SK Leonardo (direct electricity production)?

    In the US, the typical driving speed is around 75 mph. 130kph I believe? So your assumed electrical output capacity would need to support this energy demand rate.

  11. Ulrich W.A. Kranz

    Hello Andrea,
    In Germany there is the worry that the grid could be overloaded when should a massive amount of e-cars be charged, while there are discussions about the proposal from Elon Musk to build a bif e-car factory near berlin: do you think the Ecat SK Leonardo in permanent SSM will help?
    Ulrich

  12. Andrea Rossi

    Ulrich W.A. Kranz:
    If we succeed to make a permanent SSM (electric), which means that the ratio electricity generated/electricity consumed has a zero at the denominator, the issue is over.
    We are at work.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  13. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Language is a strange subject, for instance Frank Ackland asked would you be willing to invite some reliable third parties to witness it in action and report their findings?. Your reply “Of course”. Buck asked, given the importance of s.s.m would you consider the Wall Street Journal etc. etc. as examples of reliable third parties worthy of an invitation?. Andrea, although your answer, is correct, I do not think that Buck or many academics will fully understand the message contained within your answer regarding a specialist or specialists rather than that of a witness.

  18. Buck

    Dear Andrea,

    you have previously shared your view on the pivotal nature of permanent SSM, and the evolution from just the Ecat SK to including the Ecat SK Leonardo as offered products/services.

    Now, you indicate to Frank Acland your willingness to invite and demonstrate the Ecat SK Leonardo in action to reliable third parties if SSM is achieved and you are satisfied with the reliability of device.

    Given the importance of permanent SSM, would you consider The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune as examples of reliable third parties worthy of an invitation?

    Sincerely and Respectfully,

    Buck

  20. Conscience

    Dear Andrea,

    Why are you so hell-bent on secrecy and not wanting to open up your science to the world?

    Your technology could be saving the world yesterday instead of tomorrow.

    Is that why you really work hard and long hours, because you feel guilty for this?

    Because you know, if you opened up your research and technology to the rest of the world, it would spread like wildfire fire. Other experts would optimise it and port it to other industries much quicker than you could ever by yourself with your team.

    If you open the technology to the world, you become an immortal hero, and then you become ultra rich any way. And the quicker your technology diffuses, the longer you can enjoy it grow throughout your lifetime.

    You could work 5am to 1am every day, but you will never be as fast as a whole scientific, engineering and business community.

    Your answer to my last question was “because it is not ready”. But you keep seeking perfection, and every time that you achieve it, you then move the goal posts to seek a different perfection. Your pattern is now clear. And I am sure that after you figure out the Leonardo, you will come up with the next thing you want to perfect.

    Why don’t you open up your research and technology now?

    Regards,
    Conscience

    Steven N. Karels
    An ordinary electric car, today, has a battery of 55kWh. This gives a mileage of 400 km. At an average speed of 80km/h, the battery will be empty after 5 hours. This gives an average energy consumption of 11kWh/h. With a Sterling engine or other, given energy from a E-Cat, that delivers 12kWh or a little more to the electric engine, you after 5 hours of driving, will still have a full battery.
    The battery size, therefore may be reduced to 1/10th of today’s need. The battery should only provide acceleration periods and be able to absorb braking energy. This car will also be so much lighter that its energy consumption is reduced.
    This car also allows you to connect it to your home and supply it with energy, when the car is not on the road. When the car is in use, your home gets energy from the grid. There, possibly, your neighbor’s car is connected, so he can supply your house and vice versa. Similar condition otherwise in the energy use, you probably see yourself.

    Yours, Svein Henrik

  23. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    If SSM is achieved and you are satisfied with the reliability of device, would you be willing to invite some reliable third parties to witness it in action and report their findings?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Of course.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  25. Steven N. Karels

    Svein Henrik,

    I am uncertain of your reasoning. Using eCat technology to generate heat and then electricity (through the Carnot cycle) will have no effect on the reduction of demand for battery materials. If adopted widely, it will likely increase the demand as electricity rates/costs drop. Electrical energy will still need to be stored (in batteries) for transportation purposes as a Carnot cycle-based transportation engine is less desirable than a high efficiency direct electricity variant because of the heat dissipation requirements. Please clarify your reasoning.

  26. Svein Henrik

    Steven N. Charles
      Through the production of electricity through the Carnot cycle, E-Cat will significantly reduce the need for batteries. This will prevent the global shortage of cobalt, lithium and nickel from occurring.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If you can achieve a very high SSM and a high efficiency energy conversion to electricity, the applications are many:

    a. aviation
    b. land vehicles (cars and trucks)
    c. marine propulsion
    d. space propulsion and providing energy

    all without dangerous radiation or by products.

  34. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If you are selling the current technology, then you cannot reasonably be accused by Conscience of “refusing to let it out”. If the eCat SK Leonardo variant should never work, will you suddenly abandon the current product? I would think not.

    If you can achieve infinite SSM and directly produce electricity, that will be an amazing deed. But should you fail in that one product, the potential of the current product to change mankind for the better will not be diminished.

    The major environmental advantage I see for the eCat SK Leonardo is reduced thermal pollution by the elimination in the Carnot cycle in generating electricity. Are there other advantages to the eCat SK Leonardo that we are not aware of? If so, please educate us.

  35. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I agree.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  36. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are you still taking orders for your older eCat systems – reference Conscience’s comment? If so, then you have placed your product in the “stream of commerce”. If not, can you explain why?

  37. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    We still are taking orders for the heat, but Conscience , I suppose, was referring to the Ecat SK Leonardo.

    are not physicists, but biologists etc. It seems to me that this idiot forgot that your paper has so far more than 230 recommendations, among which at least half of them work in matters related and the others are anyway engaged in scientific matters, and we talk of hundreds of researchers and Professors, while in any scientific magazine the peer reviewers are normally one, sometimes two !

    Dear Mr Rossi.

    Your technology, if real, would start saving countless lives as soon as it is deployed.
    Pollution kills millions.
    Wars fought over energy resources kill millions too.
    And climate change has only just started its killing spree.
    You are a man of God. God would want you to give your invention to the world today before tomorrow so the world can use it, reproduce it and make it better.
    It’s extremely pretentious to think that only you and your small team are capable of making it better.

    1. What are you asking God and man in exchange for this? Because you would definitely get all the glory. And also all the money.

    How much costed to you the R&D you are making to get the permanent SSM ?

  49. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Here I go again but only because I have read your reply to Karl-Henrik Malmqvist Nov. 12th. I am not surprised at what you have done but I can assure you, you are making a huge mistake that should you pursue in this present activity, will result in disaster. I have no reason to derail your objective. I too am an independent researcher with an accepted embodied technology referred to as one before its time.

    The difficulties I have encountered are many due to what I have discovered as an active force with its sole purpose to suppress the understanding of energy. I am know writing direct onto your JONP because twice, information intended for the JONP has been removed from my computer. Frustrating but I realize it is because I have something that they do not want me to share. This is why your JONP is of such value in its philosophy regarding democracy that allows for uncensored published information. What you and myself are involved in is a game that every planet has to play and win, if it wants to break through the final frontier in physics, referred by me as the holy grail of physics.

    This for you and myself is an extremely serious subject with huge ramifications. What I suggest you do is say to yourself, if you were in another persons position who wanted to keep a secret (there again maybe nobody wants to) what would you do? i.e. how would you go about to ensure it remained a well kept secret. It’s really quite simple, think about the environment you would be operating within. The present environment operates within a peer reviewing protocol process so as to control and promote emerging ideas within research communities. Independent researchers are not peer reviewed. Basically we are considered renegades/wild cards and pose a serious problem, so what else would you do?. I would start a useless program such as ITER, funded of course by a money pit called the tax payer. This would fool most people but not everyone but what about the independent researcher. Well if you think of the money spent on the ITER project, all that you would need to spend so as to slow down the independent researcher would be the equivalent of thirty pieces of silver.

    What you have Andrea is what you set out to do and you have succeeded. I realize the importance of the SSM but why destroy that which is almost perfect?. I strongly advise you not to go down a blind alley. My Unifying Field Oscillation (UFO) aircraft requires energy but not that of oil – coal – gas or conventional nuclear power but that which you have developed so as to be independent when the independence is required. When I first stumbled upon your web site and technology I knew immediately that this was the energy required but before this I knew Pi=4 because it’s relevant to the 4th Aspect being that which connects Alpha energy to Omega energy i.e. the process you are seeking to obtain the SSM and the independence it will provide. I am not an academic and this I believe is why I know, what I know. I intend to keep the communication but should it fail it will not be because of me but by outside interference.

    It must also be realized that before a person does something he must first have a good idea of why he is doing it, especially when it is novel. In other words he must be able to understand the principle and the reason behind the principle so as not to waste time and money chasing effects rather than the understanding of the causes. In other words, if the principle could be explained and it made perfect sense would you pursue observed effects and speculate as to their causes.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    It would be rather pointless to reveal their address, because I can’t dance.

    Nevertheless, their rejection is a bit of an insult.
    If they don’t want to be addressed, let them dance around the clock!

    Sooner or later, artificial neural networks will unravel all the tricks of the ballerinas, and entire ballet operas and concerts can be written for them.

    In the meantime, take care of your own neural network.

    To be honest, I am really surprised that you are now starting a new generation. Let us hope that the SSM and the electricity production will be fine soon. What are the proportions that you expect between electricity and heat in percentages? Roughly.

    Very kind regards,

    Hello A. Rossi
    The southern half of the city has been on the internet. I had a break lasting more than 12 hours. (No TV, no phone, no web)

    I wish you every success in your quest for the autonomous E-Cat

  58. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo,
    If the Ecat works in a concern wherein is important the continuity in case of black out, it is important to have a back-up. By the way: the Ecat SK Leonardo in permanent SSM should not need external power sources ( if we will be successful with what we are doing ).

    Hi, Andrea.

    You answered this:

    I read it, studied it and compared it to the regular theories about fusion and still cannot get Your connection.
    BTW, I am a physicist, so when I read documents, it mostly implies, that I study them and reflect.

    It is somewhat misleading, that You recommend to read 1-4.
    Whereas the coloumb chapter is at the end of chapter 3 ongoing.
    And if Your effect is not of nuclear nature, then messing with the coloumb barrier is, at least for me, not necessary and also this “balancing” is not possible with the techniques mentioned in Your paper.

    So, please be kind and go into detail about, why your effect shall be connected to the coloumb barrier….

    THX in advance

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations with your progress!
    Just a few questions:
    1. Are you now aiming for generating mainly electricity with the E-cat Leonardo?
    2. Do you believe that you will accomplish SSM this month (November)?
    3. Now it seems that your theory and tests come more and more and more together and assuming your view on how it works is right: Do you think that our existing knowledge of elementary particles in the sense of how they are are built up, come into existence and interact, will need to change?
    Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

  73. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- We are aiming at what we are not able to do. This is R&D stays for
    2- I do not know, it is not impossible, but it is difficult
    3- I am not able to answer this question, but I think our experiments give evidence to the theoretical work of scientists that do not follow the mass, for example Hestenes ( see his references on my paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions ).

    Prof12:
    Did you study it ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Now I studied it.

    And I do not see, why You still refer to a coloumb barrier transition, if You admitted, that it is not fusion.

  83. Andrea Rossi

    Prof12:
    I do not think you studied it. At the most you read it.
    It is well explained why it is important that the Coulombian forces are balanced and the reason is not nuclear fusion.
    Par 1,2,3,4. More than this, I cannot say.

    Dear Andrea

    Regarding blockchain for your business model
    I am not a professional so really cannot give a good advise for why it would be a huge step forward for your business model, except for the advise to consult a top nudge blockchain consultant who can explain the advantages much better then I will ever be able to do. I believe in regarding to data collection, smart contracts, efficiency, and security it will be of a great benefit.

    Caro Andrea,
    io sono sicuro che tu non hai mai buttato via anni di lavoro e che neanche un minuto di tempo né un pezzetto di metallo è stato da te speso o sprecato invano.
    Non è la prima volta che modifichi la tua strategia nell’affrontare il fenomeno LENR, come quando sei uscito dall’ospedale dopo l’operazione all’ernia e hai dato vita a “Ballerina”, una fantastica creatura!
    Ora la tua nuova strategia è affrontare il fenomeno LRPI, quello che hai messo in evidenza con la tua avveniristica pubblicazione.
    Io, anzi noi tutti, siamo vicini a te che stai affrontando questo ultimo passo, verso il più avvincente dei traguardi!
    Enea

    Dear Andrea,
    I am sure that you have never thrown away years of work and that not even a minute of time or a piece of metal was spent by you or wasted in vain.
    It is not the first time that you change your strategy in dealing with the LENR phenomenon, like when you left the hospital after the hernia operation and you gave birth to “Ballerina”, a fantastic creature!
    Now your new strategy is to face the LRPI phenomenon, the one you highlighted with your futuristic publication http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I, indeed all of us, are close to you that you are facing this last step, towards the most fascinating finish line!

    Dear Andrea,
    There is one aspect of usable energy supply that no one seems to be talking about. That is that the supply of fossil fuels no matter how large will be eventually depleted and in fact since its use is growing, perhaps sooner than expected. So, the debate about its effect on global warming may be immaterial. Nature has a tendency to move slowly so IMHO this probably will happen before any catastrophic events can occur. As fossil fuels become less available, devices such as yours will by necessity be developed into usable substitutes.
    Future regards,

  97. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    I agree.

    We redisigned the Ballerina you saw in
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    . We threw away years of work, made an internal revolution, but it was necessary to arrive where we have to arrive. Courage has been necessary, because we decided not to sit down and enjoy the remarkable results obtained making heat, but I think we are very close and getting closer by the day to our objective. Spent much money, wasted much materials, but it was necessary to make epoche’ on what had been done to arrive where we have to arrive. The pulse has been generated by our theoretical evolution or, better, revolution initiated with

  103. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, The connection between your E-Cat achieving a self sustain mode and cancer is that both of these problems are directly connected to embodied energy. Your E-Cat has solid elements and hydrogen. Cancer is a soft cell becoming solid. It is overrunning a cellular cycle and becoming dense. This subject is to do with atomic structure. Your E-Cat has to get the energy out of embodied substance i.e. conversion/transition. Question how do you stop a cell from densifying i.e. running further than it should. If you can cure cancer or put the E-Cat into a self sustain mode you will realize the connection by the method. However, I do not profess to know everything so maybe there are many methods to overcome this related problem regarding energy/density. As an added piece of information I do not think the problems I sometimes have posting, certain information, on your site has anything to do with the JONP as I have encountered many problems before and no doubt will continue with regards specific information, that certain individuals consider not to be shared. I am use to it. Computers when deemed necessary can be like open books and able to be peer revued. This is nothing to dwell on as I am aware you are extremely busy and wish you all the best being an independent researcher. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Did you study the enormous advantages of blockchain technology? For multiple uses security, control, data
    (not to be confused with cryptocurrency as this can but certainly does not have to be a part of it)

    and if you studied it, do you think this will be of a great advantage for the business model and if not why not?

    Kind regards

  112. Andrea Rossi

    I did not study it and, honestly, I do not know about it.
    Can you be more precise about how can it be useful to the Ecat ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  113. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, You asked me to rephrase my question. I have tried twice but unsuccessfully. On my computer your site says Not Secure and I lose the information intended. So I am now typing direct. To be very brief, from my own experience academic institutions do not like independent researchers who fund their own projects and use their intuitive intelligence to solve important issues. This I have experienced first hand myself. The cancer cell has been described as, and I think it was said by Gaston Naessens who described it as like a spring running backwards but it could equally be described as a cell running too far forwards i.e. doing what its designed to do or like a marathon runner in a race whereby the finishing tape has become damaged or none existent and he likewise does what he is good at. The immune system is the regulator in the cycle of the cell. Camphor has been known for eons to be a ‘cure all’ but nobody seems to know how it works and it does work in certain cases of cancer. When you demonstrate your E-Cat SK in a self sustain mode you will be required to replenish the charge and the cancer researchers will know that what you have i.e. your technology is what they need.
    Regards, Eric Ashworth
    P.S. When my wifes breast cancer was cured by 714 the cancer specialist asked her where she had learned her black magic. I am not promoting 714X I have nothing to do with it but the subject of energy is a hot potato.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    As you answered that you are working also on reaching to yield an electric gain of 80-90%, besides the heat, I suppose you already reached the SSM.
    If you will reach a permanent SSM with electric gain (low entropy energy gain) you will make the most disruptive invention ever. This is close to the matter-antimatter of the science fictions.

  121. eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    I would like to add these points. Nuclear fission probably saved my life since I was about to be drafted into the army and would have participated in the invasion of Japan. Casualties of this conflict were estimated to be in the millions. Value to me and other participants, incalculable. Competition with standard energy suppliers decreased the cost of energy to users throughout the world. Value of this incalculable.

  123. Sven B

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Following your latest updates on this blog here is my interpretation
    of the 100+ last years of R&D in the area of nuclear energy extraction.

    Theoretically available energy:
    – presented 1905 by Einstein as E=mc2

    Practical processes with significant efficiency:

    Fission process:
    – first uncontrolled release: 1945
    – first controlled release: a few years later

    Fusion process:
    – first uncontrolled release: 1954
    – first controlled release: still works in progress

    Ecat-SK process:
    – first controlled release: 2018
    – Holy Grail of controlled release: Dec 2019

    Did I get things right?

    Kind regards
    Sven B

  124. Andrea Rossi

    Sven B:
    If we will succeed, yes.
    I’d add another point, though:
    – investment paid so far by the taxpayer for “classic noclear energy, fusion and fission combined: around 30 billion $, plus the damages caused by accidents like Chernobyl, Three Miles island, etc ( uncalculable )
    investments from the taxpayers for the work of my Team: zero

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Is the primary issue(s) you are experiencing with achieving SSM one of:

    1. Electronic control;
    2. Fuel combination (e.g., an additive to stabilize the SSM);
    3. thermal runaway; and/or
    4. something else?

  127. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Would you say that the understanding and cure for cancer is directly related to the understanding of energy?, which you’re technology will be able to explain. In other words, would you share knowledge with outside academic researchers who would benefit from your understanding. Of course, I understand, that they would have to approach you because of protocol but the question is would you be willing to share such information?.

  131. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Is a car with an internal combustion engine somewhat analogous to what you are trying to do with the E-Cat SK Leonardo?

    The car needs a battery to start it up, then once the engine is running part of the power produced from the car charges the battery (via the alternator), and the battery runs all the electronics in the car. To operate, the car engine requires a fuel source, as does the E-Cat (although in tiny amounts).

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

    Frank Acland:
    Correct,

    How do you start up the ssm process of the Ecat SK Leonardo:

    b- by accumulator/battery
    c- by condensator
    Waiting for good news,
    Szymon Blachuta

  134. Andrea Rossi

    The simmplest solution is by battery where there is no grid ( for example in cars ) or grid. Any sourse can be adaptable, though.

    Dr Rossi,
    Did I understand correctly that you are making the Ecat SK Leonardo in permanent ssm, which means that it makes heat and electricity, being the electricity in quantity enough to supply to the Ecat itself the electric energy necessary to work, plus perhaps also more electricity than the amount necessary for the self sustaining mode?
    If so, if you will succeed the world will not be the same.
    Good luck,

    Dear Andrea:
    I have noticed that the number readings of your paper published on Researchgate and of the views of the video of the presentation of the Ecat SK are in the same order of magnitude, in fact:
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    has obtained as of today 31198 full readings, and counting, while
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    has obtained more than 38000 views as of today and counting
    Probably the reason of the unbelievable success of the paper, by far the most read nuclear physics paper in the world of the last years, stays in the coherence between theory and experimental results.
    Do you agree?

    IObservable, I know how you are thinking but Andrea did not contradict, he answered in the only way possible with regards the questions put forward. The answers were different but not contradictory because of the subject. As I have stated before, unless a person has sufficient information, language becomes confusing and physics is without doubt a confusing subject whereby answers can easily be misinterpreted. There is no need for Andrea to confuse a person because there is no need to confuse that which is confusing i.e. there is nothing to hide and therefore nothing gained by providing what appears to be a contradictory answer to a highly technical subject. When the E-Cat SK is able to enter a self sustained mode, which we all know is possible from an atomic researchers perspective, it will be a little understood/novel technique with far reaching consequences for the whole of mankind.

    @Prof,
    Thank you Prof for your comment to IObservable.
    He, most likely, is a troll.
    I am sure Dr Rossi does not want to waste time responding to trolls; I think he probably never sleeps after long hours in the lab, not to mention the stress while thrashed by his wife on the tennis court! (LOL)

    Dr Rossi,
    Is the Clifford algebra useful to your theoretical research of models able to explain your effect?
    Has it been useful in the writing of
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions ?
    Cheers
    S.

  172. Andrea Rossi

    S.:
    Yes. In particular, its elegant models give a unitarian vision of the different vectors interacting on integrated planes. It facilitates the inventing function.

    Iobservable,
    You did not understand what Andrea Rossi wrote. You did not understand what Eric Ashworth wrote either. Dr Rossi never has been contradictory and his answers are perfectly contingent with his honesty about the enormous difficulties he has to confront to make something that will change the world if successful. He always said he is optimist, but not certain of the success and this is not a contradiction, this is intellectual honesty as well as also Eric Ashworth said repeatedly.
    I think the reasons of your writing can be alternatively two: either you are not enough intelligent to understand, or you are a troll that is trying to poison this blog. I give 50% of probability to either of these possibilities: do you like these numbers, or are they too contradictory for your mindset ?
    I do not understand why Dr Rossi does not spam your provocations.
    All the best,
    Prof

  174. IObservable

    @ Yrka:

    Do You see ? Once he gave numbers, suddenly he cannot.
    This means, again, that his answers are contradictory.
    Like Eric A. already discovered.

  175. Yrka

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.

    You answered IObservable: “The chances that we will be able to introduce Ecat SK Leonardo this year with a 1-month tolerance are 50.1%.”
    I remembered a joke. The girl was asked the question
    – What is the likelihood that you will meet a living dinosaur in the city?
    He smiled:
    – Fifty fifty, either meeting or not meeting.
    This is a joke, we hope and believe in you and your team.

    But still, what is the likelihood that Ecat SK Leonardo after the positive completion of the tests (even if it takes a few more months) will go into mass production?
    Good luck to you and the team!

    Dear Andrea,

    To append to Martyn Aubrey question using the quote within his comment question: “You said that hopefully the Ecat will provide sufficient electricity to power the control system”.

    Is it your hope the ECat SK Leonardo will soon provide not only sufficient electrical power to the control system for SSM but also include enough direct electrical power to provide domestic needs or is this required domestic electrical power another phase of R&D after SSM control quest?
    With much respect,

    Regarding Internet access for the SK Leonardo.

    When choosing to develop only a working SK with internet access, please also maybe consider a solution in between.
    A fully functioning SK with offline option that only needs to be temporary online for control and updating purposes. example by using a external wifi signal(mobile phone) or even bluetooth.

    kind regards Arjen

    You said that hopefully the Ecat will provide sufficient electricity to power the control system, but I have a question if you are able to answer.

    Will the control unit still be connected to the internet to receive the control signal, or do you plan to make the unit totally independent?

    If I have understood your answers correctly in this blog a launch of ECAT SK Leonardo could be imminent, which would be fantastic. I hope you going to have the support of some professional presenter this time. Mats Lewan could be a good choice? The presentation in Stockholm was professional but when ECAT SK was launched I was disappointed.

    Dear Andrea,
    When you will have succeeded with the E-Cat SK Leonardo SSM, it is always possible to improve the technique and make the E-cat SSM+ with better electrical conversion, giving higher electrical power output. And then E-cat SSM++ with higher reliability and easier manufacturing and so on.
    But Henry Ford made 15 million Fords Model T before he started to manufacture the improved car, the Ford Model A.

    I hope your E-Cat SK Leonardo SSM will be your Model T, ready for mass production for industrial applications in 2020.
    Then it is always possible with yearly product revisions, improvements and updates.

    I also recommend you to make a modular design of the E-Cat SSM Industrial, for easy replacement of each submodule with standardised high quality connections.

    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Does the Leonardo Corporation employ a sales staff?

    One of the largest “energy hogs” in the USA (and in Dade County, Florida) is the cement manufacturing industry. Cement production is a thermal energy intensive process, which requires heating solid particles up to 1450°C and cooling it down. You would not even be required to venture beyond your own county, to greatly accelerate your sales.
    Best regards,

  215. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, There is no link regarding this issue, if there was I would provide it. As I have informed in previous posts and to that of many private people who have asked similar questions to my information. My reply has always been and
    still is, ‘how does information get into a book’? i.e. where does it come from. What I have discovered is, some information is very easy to publish whereas some is impossible without self publishing due to censorship and this is where your blog is of irrefutable value with regards free speech regarding subjects considered highly specialized by the establishment. I too have been on a learning experience in more than one way. One of which being the difficulty encountered by bureaucracy, a necessary establishment to govern human evolution in a controlled environment.

    Fortunately there comes a time when the shackles have to be loosened and here I am referring to the internet with its associated problems of information overload i.e. sorting that which is intelligent from that which is pure garbage. As an example we all know that pi = 3.14159. This mathematical constant, I believe, is of Greek origin. Used by masons to work out floor tiles etc. and it works very well but I can inform readers of the JONP that when pi is used to work out energy it equals 4 not 3.14159. and this can be proved mathematically when you apply it to a systemic system. The boomerang travels on a circumference i.e. from alpha to omega with its trinity of energy, being positive, neutral and negative. These potentials are actually time dimensions and this is where the final frontier in physics comes to the forefront. The radius can be represented by a Capital G. The diameter by a capital D. and the circumference by O. Pile them on top of one another and spin the symbol on its axis to create a circle containing a cross or pie containing four pieces. Is this pure garbage or the truth?. Is there such a thing as a secret that has been deliberately withheld for necessary reasons and is it still being covered up?. I do not want to join the conspiracy theory regime, I have no time for such nonsense. A person can speculate all he wants but without sufficient information you cannot make a correct decision. Maybe to put the E-Cat into self sustain mode you do not need to know that pi = 4. because I am aware that we each have our own unique methods of approach to solving any problem but maybe you do.

  222. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am pleased to read that your quest to SSM is progressing in the right direction.
    As with all people, following your struggle, we can just assume where you encounter problems, because NDA prohibits you telling us details. However, being an electrical engineer my thoughts tend to assume electrical issues may trouble you.
    Combining these with your theoretical work, where you mention ‘dense electron aggregates’ and having read in Ken Schoulders work that mentions EVO’s (Exotic Vacuum Objects, which may be the same as these dense electron aggregates) and their ability to travel though metals, I think maybe these EVO’s maybe in the cause of the problems that trouble you. So I think EVO’s travel through the wires to your semiconductor electronics and destroy it.
    Ken Schoulders also gave a remedy for this: layers of conductors and insulators stop EVO’s.
    Translated to your situation: Feed the plasma via capacitors. For that you need to have high frequency AC. Use high frequency, high voltage capacitors and maybe, if these capacitors are destroyed, more than one in series.
    Obviously this is a very speculative advice, not really knowing what the problem(s) is(are). I probably could have advised you to play tennis with your wife just as good, which may be as effective (I.e. no remedy to the problem), but many of us just want you to succeed. This advice is free of charge.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  223. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    Thank you for your insight, and for the suggestions, apart the unconsolable situation of my tennis record playing with my wife. There is no remedy to that. About the Ecat SK Leonardo I am more optimist.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  224. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Also, just a small point as I do not wish to distract from the important subject of nuclear physics but Australian aboriginals sometimes decorate their returning boomerangs with snakes in the shape of a wave, filled with dots like particles. Also crop circles to me look similar to aboriginal art. This I find interesting and I thought maybe yourself and readers of the JONP would also.

    1. Is the outsourcing of E-catSK working as good as you hoped?

    2. Here in Sweden I (76 year old) am waiting for the home-E-cat still
    one winter. My little house (80 m2) need electricity-heating for
    about 2.500 USD/year. Do you think that I can buy one about 6KW E-
    cat during 2020?

    3. Can´t you persuade any customer just to mention on your blog that
    E-catSK works for them, since it still seems unbelievable?

    Best regards

  231. Andrea Rossi

    Nils Fryklund,
    1- I do not understand what you mean with “outsourcing” in this context: please rephrase to allow a precise answer

    3- same as in 2

  232. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, I can see that many people are now asking more specific questions regarding this final frontier in physics. I would like to make a statement that maybe both yourself and Prof will get a chuckle out of.

    Unlike Prof I did not buy the book “Maxwell – Dirac Theory and Occam’s Razor” Unified Field, Elementary Particles and Nuclear Interactions. You reference Chapter 1. page 19 and see page 15. M = 0 (wey equation) solution a spinnor field etc. etc. ending the velocity of an electron at any time equals the velocity of light. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I was in Australia in 1985 and had very little to do, other than get into my pet subject, being the atom and its composition. Energy as I have previously stated is directly related to geometry and maths. Thereby M = 0 of a spinnor field. I was fortunate enough one day to watch an Australian aboriginal throw his returning boomerang (not at the velocity of light) which I would refer to as a spinnor of a field. I do get a laugh out of this quite often, when thinking back but as you know, you can by using simple geometry and maths work out the technical aspects of the field of a returning boomerang. I think Mr Occam would agree.

    The puzzle for me as time progressed was how did the Australian aboriginal ancestors develop such a remarkable piece of equipment. The boomerang does not only demonstrate aerodynamics but a far more important aspect of physics connected to that of the final frontier. At least for me it did. Of course we all have our own peculiar method of approach to solve any problem. I am not being sarcastic but very serious to a serious subject.
    Regards, Eric Ashworth
    P.S. I look forward with anticipation to your much deserved final victory.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Thank you for the update.

    As for the Cigar, you don’t actually have to smoke it.

    You can show it in a picture.

    But, from health considerations, you probably wouldn’t want to smoke it .

    We want you to stay in the self sustaining mode.

    Healthy regards,

    Joseph Fine

  235. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    My interpretation of the current situation is that, you, your team, partners, and likely technical / legal / scientific advisers (all under NDA’s), are investigating a new and novel energy production system, based on your development of a new understanding of basic nuclear interactions.

    If the SSM (Self Sustaining Mode) technology addition to the E-Cat can be engineered to be robust and reliant to the point of being publicly demonstrated, this will provide proof in addition to the main E-Cat charge technology proof for the new understanding of the underlying nuclear interactions.

    If confirmed, this new understanding may lead to all involved being party to multiple patents for new devices and technologies, ground-breaking scientific papers and additional products to develop.

    It would be understandable that all the parties involved would like time to confirm the definite existence of the new understanding and have proof that can stand up to scrutiny of what will be a hostile sceptical scientific establishment, to have time to be the first to explore the new territories being opened up, to tie up the benefits, file the patents, to write the papers, to have time to prepare and jointly agree on the logistics of how to move forward.

    So understandably you are likely in the middle of a very complex situation, one where possibly not everything is under your control, a situation where you will have to agree with your partners the timing of when and how you go public.

    I wish you well on your enterprise going forward, you are likely in the middle of a very complex time consuming stressfull situation, but please take time to look after your health.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In answer to my somewhat detailed question regarding SSM you answered with a brief “No”.
    1. Can you clarify further?
    2. If so, when in the permanent SSM mode, is the “ballerina” running without control?
    3. When in the permanent SSM mode, does your control unit consume any power?
    4. When in the permanent SSM mode, can you actively change the ballerina output energy?
    5. Is your immediate goal to produce direct-to-electrical output (no conversion to electricity by light or heat)?

  240. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- see below
    2- no
    3- yes, but it is supplied directly drom the Ecat itself

    Dear Andrea, I agree, the answers you refer to are not contradictory but they are different and from what I understand the difference is the correct answer to both of the posted questions. One being to an unavailable time line and the other being that of confidentiality. This I understand as being due to the nature of the subject being the final frontier in physics, referred to by Prof Oct 31st.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted on JONP “I want the permanent SSM”

    I assume this is a continuous state of eCat reaction without an initiation signal.

    From your previous public demonstrations, it appears you use three different signal types:

    a. A sensor signal (perhaps triangular waveforms, positive and negative going) that sense the condition of the eCat “ballerina”;
    b. A continuation signal that corrects or adjusts the ongoing eCat “ballerina”; and
    c. A initiation signal that creates the eCat “ballerina”.

    Is this consistent with your meaning?

  248. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    No.
    Warm Regards,

    I too bought the book “Maxwell-Dirac Theory and Occam’s Razor: Unified Field, Elementary Particles, and Nuclear Interactions”: which is the most important page of it related to the Ecat?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Prof

    Prof:
    Chapter 1 “Maxwell Equations and Occam’s Razor”, page 19:
    “The new formulation of the Maxwell’s equations expressed by 1.3.27 [ see pag. 15 ] is quite similar to the Dirac-Hestenes equation for m = 0 ( Weyl equation ). In all cases the solution is a spinor field. A spinor is a mathematical object that in space-time algebra is simply a multivector of even grade components.
    The motion of a massless charge that moves at the speed of light can be described using a composition of a rotation in the Lambda x-Lambda y plane followed by a scaled hyperbolic rotation in the Lambda z-Lambda t plane and can be encoded in the real Clifford 3,1 algebra with a single spinor.
    At this point the Authors are encouraged by an interesting sentence of P.A.M. Dirac. In fact, in his Nobel lecture held in 1933, Dirac proposed an electron model in which a charge moves at the speed of light:
    ” It is found that an electron which seems to us to be moving slowly, must actually have a very high frequency oscillatory motion of small amplitude superposed on the regular motion which appears to us. As a result of this oscillatory motion, the velocity of an electron at any time equals the velocity of light ”
    Warm Regards,
