In the years we have been covering topics connected with the E-Cat here, there have been numerous tests and demonstrations that have validated the underlying claim of Andrea Rossi and others: that it is possible to create a nickel-hydrogen reaction that produces more energy than is input into a reactor in significant quantities — enough to provide useful energy.
It’s a very simple concept to understand, and one that can obviously be valuable in a world where demand for energy is growing and where there are deep economic, geopolitical and environmental concerns surrounding current sources of energy.
Until recently Andrea Rossi has been the main focus of attention when it comes to demonstrating the ‘Rossi Effect’ in his E-Cat invention. We have watched and waited for every word on the E-Cat and scrutinized any testing reports that have been published — and now we wait again for the results of the current test of the 1 MW E-Cat plant to be published later this year, or even next year.
But things have suddenly changed.
The work of Alexander Parkhomov has had a major impact in the community of LENR followers (small as it is), as he has taken the Lugano E-Cat Report, and through careful analysis and skillful experimentation has apparently managed to replicate the Rossi Effect on numerous occasions.
Alexander Parkhomov has presented an important gift to the world. The report he presented yesterday in Moscow gives the most extensive evidence to date that it is relatively simple and inexpensive to replicate the Rossi Effect. His work challenges, and almost begs the scientific world to follow his lead.
If he can do something this convincing and this important — in his apartment — surely it could not be too onerous for others with experience in experimentation who have the necessary facilities, materials and equipment to try and replicate what Parkhomov has done.
I like what Roger Bird wrote here today:
I figure that this is roughly the point that Rossi was at when he sought out Focardi to ask him if he, Rossi, was crazy or not. Fortunately, Parkhomov has Rossi’s success to assure him that he is not crazy. (:->)
The challenge is now out there for all to see. It doesn’t seem that Alexander Parkhomov has kept any secrets. Given this importance of the topic, I would think this would be time where the scientific community around the world (that is hired via public funding to improve our lives) should start getting involved — even if the motivation is to save us from deception.
Regardless of what the mainstream scientific community does, I have no doubt that those of us who are convinced by all we have learned over recent years and months will continue independent efforts to replicate the findings of Alexander Parkhomov. And I am sure these independent efforts will grow.
But the heavy lifting needed to bring this topic to the attention of the wider public would be easier with major scientists and labs getting involved.
