Andrea Rossi has commented some more on the validation process.
In comments on the Journal of Nuclear Physics Rossi stated in response to a question I posted about whether the new partner’s interests might swallow up Leonardo’s interests, Rossi replied:
Our Partner shares our philosophy. Stay alert: the third party validation will finish in 2 weeks, after which they will prepare the report. I’ll keep you informed.
Another poster mentioned that this comment contradicted Rossi a comment Rossi made on November 21 when he said that testing had been completed. To this Rossi responded:
Yes, we met serious problems that we had to resolve, which delayed the tests conclusion.
It looks to me then, that the report may not be published until 2013 with the Christmas and New Year holidays coming up.
