Rossi Comments on Theory and Radiation

Given the discussions we have been having here regarding the possible mechanism behind the E-Cat reaction, I thought it was interesting to see a couple of Q&A’s on the Journal of Nuclear Physics in this area:

Dear Andrea:
Which is the peak quantity of the specter of the radiations you have been able to detect inside the Ecat?

Borderline in between X-Rays and Gamma, around 50 keV.
Warm Regards,

Dear Andrea Rossi,
Did you change idea about the chance that electron capture could explain the LENR?

JP Renoir:
Absolutely not. Electron capture in LENR is impossible. It can happen only with atoms overweighted with protons, and this is not our case.
Warm Regards,

Rossi has always said that the E-Cat is perfectly safe because they never are able to measure radiation beyond background levels outside the E-Cat, but here he clearly states that there is radiation inside the reactor that somehow apparently never escapes. For a quick reference, here’s an image from the Mirion Technologies website about different types of radiation and the shielding required to block them.
