Andrea Rossi responded to a question on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today about how many orders he has received for the Ecat SKLep.
Thank you for the update.
So far we received orders for about 300000 units ( exactly 295693 in this moment ) most of them by big buyers.
This is about 1/3 of the way to the 1 million pre-order threshold he has set before the SKLep goes into production. If he does reach the 1 million mark, I think it will take a lot of large orders to achieve it, since from what I have seen in terms of internet activity, there doesn’t seem to be evidence of a groundswell of interest from individual buyers at this point. I do think, however, that if the SKLep can be shown to work well by people who eventually end up getting them, that will change quickly.
