As Alexander Parkhomov continues to speak and publish about his work on the Lugano E-Cat replication effort, it is becoming clear that his work is becoming the major focus of people following the LENR story.
For a number of years we have been carefully watching news about Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat, reading his comments, and studying every report, snippet of news and image, waiting for his technology to finally make it into the real world. The Lugano report was a turning point, because we received what could turn out to be critical information about the fuel used in the reactor, and this is the information that Alexander Parkhomov took and ran with — building a reactor based on information in that report.
Now it appears that he has gotten close enough to Rossi’s recipe to show some type of ‘Rossi effect’, even if the reactor is not identical in construction or fuel. But I think his work has shown an effect that is ‘close enough’ to get people thinking that maybe it’s not such a difficult thing after all to build a device that clearly demonstrates an LENR effect.
We have seen the work of Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project, Brian Ahern, and Jack Cole as examples of efforts now attempting to build on the work of Parkhomov (in different ways) — and I am aware of another serious attempt in the planning stages. I am sure there are more efforts underway, probably behind closed doors, at least for now.
If results can be shown to be consistently repeated, and the levels of energy gain are shown to be beyond the realm of chemical reactions, I think that 2015 could be the year where we finally see LENR breaking out in the world, even if we don’t get anything more revealed from Rossi and Industrial Heat.
If there are even a handful of separate experiments that can conclusively show an effect, I think it will build a momentum that will be hard to stop. At some point, I think it will be inevitable that some university or government lab somewhere will pay attention, and want to try their own replication. If one is successful, then others will surely follow, and sooner or later, there will begin to be media reports that will begin to reach the general population.
Alexander Parkhomov has set a snowball rolling.
P.S. Just to be clear, when I refer to the ‘Parkhomov Effect’ in the title above, I mean a social effect that has had the effect motivating other replications. The effect he has replicated is rightly called the ‘Rossi effect’ since his work is based on the E-Cat.
