Just recently, Frank Acland – a frequent poster on the Journal of Nuclear Physics and administrator of his own E-Cat related site, E-cat World, – asked Andrea Rossi some questions concerning development of the E-Cat.
The first question he asked was:
“What is your level of satisfaction about the direction the E-Cat is going?”
Rossi’s typical one-word response was “top”. He has indicated in the past that the new U.S. partner has greatly expanded the potential of Leonardo Corp to develop and distribute the E-Cat and Hot Cat. His comment, last year, comparing the capabilities to a “battleship vs. an aircraft carrier” summed up the difference quite well. According to his response, he is still quite pleased with the process.
For further clarification, Mr. Acland asked:
“What is the rate of improvement to your systems since you have made your partnership?”
Mr. Rossi’s response was, “remarkable”. That’s good news. The “magnificent” manufacturing facilities he had referred to indicate that the progress exceeds even his own hopes and expectations.
Mr. Acland also invites Rossi to share more of his feelings about his work:
“How much enjoyment are you having in your role as Chief Scientist?”
To which the Italian inventor replied:
“…at last I can dedicate all my time to the scientific improvement, focusing on this all my energy.”
And, finally, the question most of the E-Cat community asks:
“What is your level of optimism of seeing E-Cat products diffused in the marketplace over the next few years?”
To which Andrea Rossi responded:
“I am very optimist about this.”
That last question is, actually, somewhat disappointing. The E-Cat community is actually hoping to see the E-Cat “diffused in the marketplace” as quickly as possible and the more specific details one can get from Rossi, the better. With orders already cued, a manufacturing plant under construction, and robots being developed for mass production, there’s a constant need for more, than just a general “the next few years” to have E-Cats on the market.
