Rossi Setting Up A ‘Make Materials That Don’t Exist’ Lab (Update: New Lab ‘in Miami’)

Here’s a comment from Andrea Rossi today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics that gives a little indication of what working life is like inside the shipping container.

Dr Joseph Fine:
Very interesting comments, thank you.
I am very tired to hear answers like ” we do not have it” when I ask something that I need. This is why I am setting up a ” make existing what doesn’t exist” laboratory. If something does not exist in a system you have to go out of the system.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

I would guess that the kinds of materials that are most needed are those that can withstand very high temperatures over extended periods of time. Rossi has said that the breakdowns of the E-Cat X have so far been caused by something burning out or materials fusing together.

In connection with the rebuild of the E-Cat X, Rossi also commented today that they had “resolved the problem of the new material, made the new material, now we can make the new E-Cat X.”

UPDATE: I asked Rossi whether the new lab was inside the shipping container where he’s working. He responded: “No, I made a lab in Miami to make new materials. During the last 2 weeks I worked 18 hours per day instead of 16… But now the new material I needed is made, the situation returns to 16/day. Next week we’ll have the E-Cta X in operatin again. Fingers crossed.”

    His “I am very tired to hear answers” is an example of how very intelligent people can become very impatient and even irritable. I know because I am one of those people. There is no point in being judgemental towards people when they are like that. It is best to merely endure it, forgive it, or get out of the way, particularly if you like what they produce when they are in such irritable states.

      Bring me solutions, not problems.

      Really bachole? You’re one of those people?
      Not just averagely smart but “very intelligent”?
      Well, I had no idea, up to now.
      I can see I will have to treat your contributions with a whole new level of umm,.. respect? (or mirth perhaps? I did find that one funny)

      Or perhaps you might just align yourself with those who get impatient and irritable with other people.
      That’s nothing special. Anyone can do that. 🙂

        The solution is meditation, prayer, and selfless service. (:->)

          Yes, but remember you are irritable

    • “His ‘I am very tired to hear answers’ is an example of how very intelligent people can become very impatient and even irritable.”

      I agree with this statement. However, stupid people who think that they are smart can also act like this. If you want examples, just look at just about any blog put out by pseudoskeptics. I have tended to think, reading Rossi’s blog more and more, that Rossi is a simple-minded individual who managed to get lucky.

      • Chris the 2nd

        I don’t think Rossi is simple minded, he’s single minded and obsessive compulsive. He has a scratch with this LENR problem and he needs to itch it.

        I scored a 96%ile (not IQ; the IQ scores have too many problems), and I have so many other characteristics of that profile that I described. My son, who imagines in color and has awesome social skills, does not seem to be as intelligent (in that head-case sort of way) as I am. My wife said that I fit the Aspergers profile. I have to work at being patient, and my wife and son both work at keeping me away from other people. (:->)

        I would suspect that most of the people on this forum are similar to me. I DO NOT think that I am the smartest person in this room; more like at the 50%ile. Heck, I don’t even bother reading the technical comments, like most of Axil^2’s. I don’t want to bother pressing my mind into those formulas and trying to understand them; they bore me also. I also don’t want to waste energy speculating about speculations about sparse datapoints. (:->)

          Now, that was funny.

    Am I wrong or is Rossi basically saying that he is in a container in Miami?
    I thought it was said he was in Mexico?

    • bachcole

      I never heard anything about Mexico. I thought that he was in Raleigh, North Carolina.

      Miami? I hope that he has air conditioning.

    • ecatworld

      I think that was an April fools joke on the JONP. Those who know where the plant is, aren’t saying.

    • GreenWin

      Sounds like nanomaterials issues. The current state of CNT tech can build almost anything – once it is visualized. A good problem for Dr. Rossi to be wrestling with. Maybe put Chris Cooper on staff? He may be available.

    I think that he is just saying that what he needs for his R&D isn’t commercially available.
