The US military builds things, alright. But for stuff like this they buy and test. Period. I have been through a number of these projects and what they like, they grab, what they don't, well, goodbye. Sounds very cheesy indeed. Cheers, Badeskov

more news Brian Josephson, Nobel prize winner for physics in 1973, highlights the UK energy departement (DECC) interest in Andrea Rossi's E-Cat and invites the inventor to reconsider the idea of a scientific test. A new piece in the puzzle of Rossi's E-Cat, which is said to be able to produce power with a cold fusion reaction: UK energy departement (DECC) has taken an interest in this tecnology, and might even plan "further action", under some conditions. In the exclusive open letter we publish here, Brian Josephson, physicist, who stands by Rossi since the beginning, invite...

I don't know what the fellow has and I am sceptical on it being "cold fusion". This doesn't mean a heat producing reaction is not occuring however. Being that his intent is to control this idea and make money on it, it would be business suicide to make the knowledge of the process public domain, which is what is being asked. If I were a potential customer, I would require a very convencing test and some sort of bond. If it produces more energy than it consumes and the cost is not prohibitive, then it could be a good source of energy regardless of what it is called. Ma...

There is a difference between making knowledge ``public'' and making it ``public domain''. As far as I know, all of Rossi's critics want him to reveal how E-Cat works, i.e. make the knowledge ``public''. If he patents his process, he is making the knowledge ``public'' without allowing others to profit freely from it, is he not? As it stands, all Rossi has is a trade secret... which I think is unenforceable. If someone sneaks into his trailer and steals his secrets and then publishes these secrets without giving Rossi credit, I don't think he would be...

You are spot on actually. If the process works and is a finished product, I doubt he is concerned with peer review in any sense. That is for abstract ideas and an attempt to promote new theories and break thoughs absent of direct and great monitary value. A good many discoveries are protected and patented first or sold out right before any peer review is allowed. I wouldn't suggest it works as cold fusion, but understand how it can protect his interests to not give over all information for people around the world to make their own versions of his work. Is it likely any of these bus...

In other words, the DECC know of the field, know of Mr. Rossi's device and essentially have no interest in it. I can only guess, but I know where I would hinge my bet on why that is. Cheers, Badeskov

I didn't get that from the letters quoted at all. It appears they are interested or wouldn't bother writting a letter at all or requesting more information. What I see is normal prudence in forcing the seller to produce proof of value first, over handing over some millions of dollars with no guarantees. All this on some very hedgy language on Rossi's part concerning what is happening and what the process can and does do, then having to discover this information for themselves. If the machine were fully capable of what is being professed we wouldn't even be disscussing th...

E-Cat and cold fusion: Andrea Rossi replies to Nobel prize winner Brian Josephson Brian Josephson joins Francesco Celani's call for further scientific tests of Andera Rossi's E-Cat, but Rossi has different plans. A few days ago, an eminent italian physicist asked Focus to host an open letter to Andrea Rossi to call for a scientific test of his device. Then it was Nobel prize winner Brian Josephson turn to stress the importance of such a test: it wouldn't just satisfy some scientist's curiosity, it would benefit Rossi himself. But in the inventor's ideas, the market itself ...

I think we are in complete agreement here. In my honest opinion they write a letter to get information to ascertain a level of confidence. It is their job to keep themselves appraised of what is going on in the field of energy generation and if they really thought that it was a breakthrough, I am sure they would be hammering them. Not just sending a letter asking for more information. Cheers, Badeskov
