Rossi: Parkhomov’s Replication ‘a Good Thing for All’

I sent a comment to Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics providing links to the recent data published by Alexander Parkhomov, and the video of his experiment, and asked him what his thoughts were regarding. Parkhomov’s apparent success in replicating the Rossi effect.

This was Rossi’s response:

Frank Acland:
At this point I suppose I can say that the replication of Prof. Parkhomov is serious, very serious.
I am delighted of the fact that an expert of the art, using what has been published, has been apparently able to replicate the Effect. I think this is a good thing for all.

Parkhomov is a product of the Russian scientific school, and I am honoured to have been studied from professionals belonging to that level of excellence. Now we have a mainstream scientific environment Prof, not confined in the LENR entity, that has replicated seriously my work.

Warm Regards,
A.R.

Rossi always seems to be very pleased to have his work taken seriously by those who he considers to be qualified professionals in whatever field they work. There could be an argument made that Parkhomov’s apparent success could be detrimental to the business interests of Industrial Heat, but Rossi doesn’t seem to be too concerned about that here. On the other hand, having his work verified by a qualified scientist could be helpful for Industrial Heat’s patent application, and also raise the status of Rossi as the inventor of a revolutionary energy device.

The two meetings held this week in Russia have shown that Parkhomov’s work seem to have raised the profile of LENR and Rossi himself among certain scientists. I think this can only be good news for those who are hoping to see LENR emerge into the mainstream of society.

    Apart from this being a very friendly statement, it is also very beneficial for Rossi himself, as stressing that someone ‘skilled in the art’ is actually able to reproduce his invention from his documentation is giving him a lot of ammunition in his communications with the patent office.

      I bet Rossi is a great chess player. He is usually about three strategic moves ahead, while appearing to be only one step ahead.

        OR-appearing to be only one step behind…

      Yes correct. At this time, may be people are shying away from the ECat because of the secrecy and the image in media. Once there are a few replications, there will be a long queue of customers at the door of IH. Its good for Rossi and for LENR in general.

  • Sanjeev

    He says something similar here :

    But the work of Parkhomov will be taken more seriously by open minded scientific community if he publishes it in a peer reviewed journal. There are some things that need to be formally checked in his experiment. Hopefully publication will not be a major problem in Russia.
    A confirmation from MFMP would also establish it beyond any doubt.

    • Yes, this is an important step now. Peer review with all needed information to replicate.
      Then the media attention will grow itself.

    is that contraption the famed Steorn Orbo ?

    • ecatworld

      It’s on the Facebook page of Mike Daly who is now a director of Hephaheat Limited, a company spun off from Steorn. Not sure what it is exactly, but it seems to be some kind of heat exchanger system. According to Steorn CEO Shaun McCarthy hephaheat is supposed to be used in water heaters. Still waiting for a product to come to market.

        If they are two years ahead we won`t see a product for two years. Cold fusion technology doe`s have promising alternative technology competitors at cost. If the MIT nanors have 80 COP that is a breakthrough.

      • bfast

        If I read Hephaheat correctly, they heat a metal core to very hot temperatures, then run water through to heat it on demand. The results are that a small tank can produce on demand hot water, and special wiring isn’t required because rather than putting energy in fast, you put it in more slowly over a long period of time.

        If I am right, there is nothing that vaguely resembles new physics here such as LENR. I would see this technology as having application, but not as being earth shaking to the physics community in any way.
