Here’s The Settlement—Getting The License Back Was Rossi’s Top Priority

This unbelievable stupidity is still going on. While morons can be found in abundance, Rossi is ready for an other round with his scam.

AN IMPOSSIBLE INVENTION

In the settlement between Rossi and his US licensee IH, Rossi got the license back together with all E-Cat equipment and materials, while none of the parties will have to pay damages to the other. Getting the license back was his top priority all the time, Rossi explains in this interview.

[Here’s the document defining the terms of the settlement(un-disclosed source)].

“To us, the most important thing was to regain complete ownership of the IP and of all the rights that were conceded through the license. At this point, it had become very clear that a continued collaboration had become impossible because of the choices IH made and because of other reasons. The development, the finalization, and the distribution of the technology—any agreement regarding this would have been impossible,” Rossi told me during an interview via Skype on July 15.

The settlement was drafted on July 5, 2017…

EM-Drive – The space kicksledge rides again

The long awaited peer reviewed em-drive paper is finally out [1]. So what does this prove, that the gizmo works?

Nope. It proves absolutely nothing. Well, the peer reviewers have passed the paper so it is not absolute crapola then, I guess.

No, wait a minute. They speculate that the phenomenon could be explained by some variation of hidden variable quantum mechanics theory.

Quote from the paper:

Before providing some qualitative thoughts on the proposed physics
potentially at work in the tapered RF test articles, it will be useful to
provide a brief background on the supporting physics lines of thought.
In short, the supporting physics model used to derive a force based on
operating conditions in the test article can be categorized as a nonlocal
hidden-variable theory, or pilot-wave theory for short.[1]

Now, that’s absolute bollocks, which is obvious to anyone even remotely familiar with quantum mechanics. That chapter in the paper is completely naive and hand-wavy in it’s content.

Think about the proposition:

  1. The original theory presented by the inventor is absolute crap and has nothing to do with physical reality
  2. Couple of fringe engineers at NASA Eagleworks has managed to get they study peer reviewed
  3. The results are indistinguishable from the error margin
  4. The authors of the paper keep speculating with exotic physical theories. Again
  5. A gadget, if it works, defies the most fundamental laws of physics and is essentially an overunity device of the first kind, which can be easily proven using only high school physics

I am still calling bullshit the on space bucket and make a prediction: No exotics physics is needed to explain what is going on with the EM-Drive.

EM-Drive going to infinity – and beyond!

The fantastic space kicksledge, the Em-Drive, has taken a giant leap forward. Apparently, NASA’s Em-Drive paper has been peer reviewed and the review will be published later this year.[1]

Moreover, Cannae Ltd. is supposedly sending they spacebucket to the orbit. That’s certainly progress, hooray! [2]

We also seem to have an other theory, that explains the workings of the flying bucket. Mike McCullouch’s MiHsC (yikes, did I spell that correctly) theory explains exactly what is going on. [3]

Exiting times for the enthusiasts, the world will never be the same again!

If you believe the Internet buzz and are not paying attention, that is.

Of course, for those who have been following the Em-Drive saga and did not forget to think in the process, it is obvious that the evidence is piling against Em-Drive, not for it.

Fan confusions

It’s nice to have fans!

But right now some people seem to confuse me with pseudonym Mary Yugo, the number one nightmare of cold-fusionist crowd! [1]

Maybe I should be honored, but sorry, Mary is not me and I am not Mary.

I was banned from the LENR-forum not once, but twice.

No, I am not proud. Just saying.

Sloppy replication of an epic error

Martin Fleischmann memorial project has had a major breakthrough [1]. They have replicated the epic failure of Pons and Fleischmann. Some may remember that P&F were discredited, not because they thought they invented “cold fusion”, but because of their communication error: too much and too early [1].

I had higher hopes for these guys (and I mean MFMP [1]). I did not think they would resort to such sloppy tinkering and wishful thinking, that has been so emblematic to cold fusion community.

Mats Lewan bets his ass for the these guys, of course [2].

I don’t have anything else to say, than it is nice to have a new twist to refresh the already diminishing entertainment factor of the E-Cat saga.

Oh, almost forgot. The recipe.

witch-making-potion-24008794

1. Bake Ni
2. Reduce Ni
3. Hydrogenate Ni
4. Mix: Ni + LiAlH4 + Li
5. Bake and vac reactor, add Mix, vac warm, add H2, Vac
6. Heat to above Mössbauer determined Ni Debye (say 135C), pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
7. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
8. Heat slowly to as close to Ni Curie as comfortable (Say 340C), pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
9. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
10. Slowly lower temp to above highest known Ni Debye (Say 220C), pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
11. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
12. Go as fast as possible through Ni Curie
13. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
14. Cycle through 500C internal, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
15. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
16. Raise internal temperature to over 1200, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
17. Drop to around 1000C and hold, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
18. Raise internal temperature to near boiling point of Lithium
Some of the above steps may in time be redundant.
1h Thermal > x/β- (0-100KeV) emissions thermalised in Lead > IR/THz (via blackbody) > 5h (SSM)

Rossi has been granted US patent on the E-Cat — fuel mix specified

LENR fanatics are getting technorgasms over this one. But the rest of the world couldn’t care less.

Believe me, I would rather have this to be true, just that it is not. 

Who really knows what the truth is. However, very often it is easy to spot a falsehood.

This patent adds nothing to Andrea Rossi’s credibility, and the funny thing is that it is not even about LENR or cold fusion. It is just a controlled Italian water heater, which I don’t think would work, if build according to specs using the described fuel.

AN IMPOSSIBLE INVENTION

(Last updated on August 25, 9.17 pm CET). Today Andrea Rossi was granted a patent on his LENR based heating device the E-Cat. The patent, which has the filing date March 14, 2012, can be downloaded here: US9115913B1

As far as I understand, the patent describes the so-called low temperature E-Cat that Rossi showed in semi-public demonstrations at several occasions in 2011, and which is also used in an ongoing 350-day trial of a 1 MW plant, but since it describes core parts of the technology it is probably also valid at a certain extent also for more recent E-Cat models with higher operating temperature.

Note that LENR is not mentioned explicitly in the patent, but also note that the contents of the fuel mix are specified — lithium and lithium aluminium hydride as fuel and a group 10 element, such as nickel in powdered form as the catalyst. This is important…
