What Andre Rossi is afraid of?

Topic: Science


In his blog Journal of Nuclear Physics Andrea Rossi is trying to transmit wrong information to the readers, when the subject is about the nature of the reactions occurring within his eCat.

For instance, in December 12th Frank Acland posted the following comment:

Dear Andrea,

I am sorry I cannot understand Italian — because you apparently had an interesting interview with Salvo Mandarà today.

I have been reading some translated reports of the interview and wonder if you could confirm whether these translated points are correct:



1. That the 1 MW plant operates with no external drive input for 3/4 of the operation (self sustain mode)
2. That Industrial Heat will sell heat (not plants)
3. That you have discussed the E-Cat with the CEO of Volvo
4. That the E-Cat reaction is not necessarily fusion
5. Massive sales will begin once the first 1 MW plant is verified consolidated

Thank you!

Frank Acland

    Frank Acland:
    1- That’s so far our best available situation with E-Cats and Hot Cats.
    2- No, I did not say this. I said that our plants now make heat and that’s the product our Customers can use so far.
    3- Yes, in Göteborg during the year 2012, after an engineer of Volvo had attended a test in our factory in Bologna ( Italy).
    4- What I said is that mass production cannot start before the operation of the first industrial prototype, installed in a factory of a Customer, is consolidated after a long period of continuous operation ( at least one year).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

As we see, Andrea Rossi supressed propositally the question 4,   Then in December 13th I posted the following comment:

    Dear Andrea,
    You forgot to answer the question 4

    Frank Acland, Wladimir Guglinski:
    I forgot to answer to the question 4 of the Frank Acland’s comment, sorry: I answer in seconds while working…
    Answer: as you have read on the Report of the ITP after the Lugano test, energy comes substantially from isotopical shifts, which is not a fusion, at least for what concerns the final results.

As the argument  posted by Andrea Rossi makes no sense, I had posted the following reply:

Dear Andrea,
what you say is disagree to what is said in the page 30 of the Report:

In summary, the performance of the E-Cat reactor is remarkable. We have a device giving heat energy compatible with nuclear transformations, but it operates at low energy and gives neither nuclear radioactive waste nor emits radiation. From basic general knowledge in nuclear physics this should not be possible. Nevertheless we have to relate to the fact that the experimental results from our test show heat production beyond chemical burning, and that the E-Cat fuel undergoes nuclear transformations."

Isotopic shift has nothing to do with production of energy:

Surprisingly, Andrea Rossi did not aprove my comment.  He had deleted it.

And the question is: why ??

Why is Andrea Rossi trying to convince people that Rossi-Effect is not caused by nuclear fusion???

First of all, we note that Andrea Rossi is rejecting what is stated in the page 30 of the Lugano Report, acording to which the device is "giving heat energy compatible with nuclear transformations "

Why??

One could speculate that Andrea Rossi wants to avoid the resistance of the academic physicists.  That he thinks to be easier for the community of physicists to accept his eCat if he convince everybody that his reactor works without nuclear reactions.

But he dont need to be afraid anymore on the resistance of the academic physicists, because the results of his eCat was already comproved by three universities of Europe, as stated in the Lugano Report published in October 2014:
http://www.sifferkoll.se/sifferkoll/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/LuganoReportSubmit.pdf

Besides, soon his eCat is going to be put in the market, and the community of physicists will be obliged to accept that his cold fusion reactor really works.
Therefore he dont need to be afraid of the resistance of the academics.


But  perhaps there is another reason:  an old dream of Prof. Focardi.

Along several comments posted by Andrea Rossi, he used to say that he believes that it is possible to explain the eCat working by considering the Standard Nuclear Physics, because Prof. Focardi told that it is possible to find a theory based on the Standard Model, and those who claim that cold fusion is impossible from the principles of the Standard Model are saying such a thing because they do not know well the Standard Model.

So, other possibility of the Rossi's stubbornness in rejecting nuclear fusion in this eCat can be due to his loyalty to the Foccardi's dream. 

But no matter what is the reason, what Andrea Rossi is doing is  not honest.  Many of the readers of the Rossi's blog are discussing about the Lugano Report, in order to try to discover the reactions within the eCat, and to understand the mechanisms responsible for cold fusion occurrence.
While Andrea Rossi is trying to deceive the readers, by claiming that he will publish a theory compatible with the principles of the Standard Model, and what is the worst, he is saying nonsenses, as to claim that do not occur nuclear fusion in his eCat, an affirmation in completely disagreement to the Lugano Report
