Thanks to Andreas Moraitis for finding a link to an English language interview that Maurizio Melis of Italian Radio24 Smart City hosts conducted with professor Bo Höistad of the University of Upssala (Sweden)
You can hear the audio here:
This is really the first serious statement we have heard from any of the testing team since the Lugano report was conducted. I think it’s clear from listening to the interview that Professor Höistad is puzzled as to what is going on with the E-Cat because it goes against fundamental principles that he as a physicist has held to. He even says that he is a skeptic, but he seems not doubt the results of experiment, even though he would like to conduct more to confirm the effect they measured.
Importantly, he states that it was the testing team that selected the sample of ash from the reactor, with Andrea Rossi being present.
At the end of the interview he was asked if there was any way that Rossi could have manipulated under the testers’ eyes the fuel or the ashes. Dr. Höistad replied, “we were very careful to see that nothing obscure or hidden was going on with the ash, just as a precaution. But the answer is no. We handled the ash. Mr Rossi was present, he helped us in some way . . . we picked up the sample we wanted to have a look at. But of course, in principle, it’s possible to cheat anyone if you really have that gift . . . but no, we don’t operate on that scale; we take for granted that this is done in an honest way.”
