Mark Gibbs Covers the E-Cat Test Report for Networked World

Networked World, an industry website for networking and IT professionals has published an article by Mark Gibbs titled, “Could ultra-cheap, clean energy be just around the corner? The return of Rossi and the E-Cat.”

Gibbs used to write for Forbes Online, and covered the E-Cat and LENR quite extensively on that site. It’s good to see him covering the topic once again at a different venue.

In the article, Gibbs gives an overview of his past coverage of Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat, and highlights Rossi’s past demonstrations and the first third party test. He then goes on to give a description of the most recent test that was released yesterday, providing some of the most pertinent information (COP for extended testing, and the isotopic changes in the ash from the reactor)

He concludes:

This is the most convincing data so far to support Rossi’s claims and, assuming that all is as it appears, we can start to ponder a future where transportation costs are trivial, every house, business, data center, you name it has it’s own power and heat generation system, every power company becomes obsolete, every third world nation gets to play with the big boys economically, and Andrea Rossi becomes the richest person in history by orders of magnitude.

This is very much a “watch this space” event … stay tuned.

I’m glad that Networking World allowed Mark Gibbs to featured this topic, even though it’s not exactly in the field of IT or computer networks. I am sure, though, that if LENR becomes a bona fide power source it will be discussed widely in the publications of any industry that uses power — which is pretty much every industry out there.

    Hi Frank, the article is not easily found in that link.
    Cheers,

    P.S. Its here in the Infrastructure Management section:

    All those server farms to support the cloud go through tons of energy this is very important to his readers

    Mark was wrong when he said that Rossi would become the “richest person in history by orders of magnitude.” Rossi has chosen “service over self” (Part of the the United States Air Force Academy’s motto). He will become filthy rich, but not by orders of magnitude.

    Michael Nelson, Alternate Discipline Leader for SLS Propulsion at NASA’sPropulsion Research and Development Laboratory, notes, “I was impressed with the work that was done to insure the measurements claiming a 3.2 to 3.6 COP were accurate. Aside from the fact that this could not have been produced from any known chemical reaction, the most significant finding to me is the evidence of isotopic shifts in lithium and nickel. Understanding this could possibly be the beginning of a whole new era in both material transmutations and energy for the planet and for space exploration. This is an exciting time to live in and this is an exciting technology to witness come about.”

    Is it iron-58 that they found in the ash?

    H(1) + Ni(61) > Co(58) + He(4) 0.489 MeV

    Co(58) > Fe(58) + e+(positron)

    Did they see any 511 keV gamma rays from electron-positron annihilation?

      If it’s a 9 iron let me know.
      I misplaced 1. 🙂

    Why do you delete my posts, Admin. It was merely links to news articles and a statement from Michael Nelson from Nasa. I would imagine it is interesting for both you and your readers?

    Btw. Mats have a new article on nyteknik ..only in swedish for the moment

      Hi JC — I haven’t been deleting your posts; they stay in the moderation queue until I approve them. I’m sorry that I am not able to get to them sooner, but there are many coming in, and lots of things to occupy my attention right now. And *thank you* for the links you have sent! Very interesting and useful.

      Best,

      Frank

        I see. Sorry, i just felt violated there for moment. 🙂

    Here is Mats Lewan’s up to date E-Cat reporting for today. It provides some new information.

      Thanks.
      It is in Swedish but google translates it very well.

    The reluctance of the science establishment to accept LENR, reminds me of the Kubler Ross 5 stages of grief. Anger Denial Bargaining depression and Acceptance. currently they seem to be stuck on denial. What are they mourning? The loss of their assumed mastery and understanding of nuclear interactions. Eventually they will come to grips with the new reality and actually do their jobs, explaining reality, rather than denying it.

    “and Andrea Rossi becomes the richest person in history by orders of magnitude.”
    This man knows little about capitalism. People doing useful stuff get rewarded, sometimes rich. The main money is rewarded to those who diserve it the most: not the gifted ones, not the smart ones, not the hard working ones, but the ones who owns a lot more than they need and have invested it.
