In the confusion created in the last few days by the discussions over the Bologna contract, there’s no wonder people see theories of conspirations everywhere. To clear things out, the most important part of the University of Bologna’s Physics department statement is this:
However, the Department of Physics has made available its experience and its equipment to carry out independent measurements on the production of heat by the equipment’s e-cat in order to provide an answer to the entire scientific community and the general public about the phenomenon. The measurement results will be published.
So what does this mean? It might be that Rossi has allowed scientists at the Bologna Uni to publish the documentation and results of their Ecat testing. For both the general public and the scientific community, this would be a blast.
Imagine what would mean for two universities (remember Rossi has always said he’s working with two educational facilities) to make public positive reports of the ECat device at the same time.
Moreover, according to further info, Rossi told Ny Teknik that:
“the work of the University of Bologna has already started with meetings together with National Instruments to prepare the whole system analysis.”
If this is true, there’s a completely new spin added to the whole story. The confusing comments over the closed contract with Bologna University yesterday are left in the background, shadowed by solid evidence that Rossi is more than just a random National Instruments customer (as previously assumed by certain people).
National Instruments is a highly important organization, whose decision makers are obviously aware of the controversy surrounding the eCat and cold fusion and its apparent involvement would also boost the trustability percentage in Andrea Rossi’s statements regarding the company’s involvement in his device. Remember that NI publicly mentioned Leonardo Corporation in their press release of Nov 14, 2011:
“Innovators throughout the world are using the NI graphical system design approach to efficiently address the world’s grand engineering challenges in medical technology, urban infrastructure, alternative energy and other critical applications. In physics specifically, NI has contributed product solutions to some of the most advanced projects including the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC)and tokamak fusion device control systems. Additionally, the Leonardo Corporation has intentions to incorporate NI tools in its control system.”
Yet again, it’s way too early to see a clear end to this story, but validation from two universities, plus National Instruments empowering the Ecat research might just be what Rossi currently needs and what the people want: a global energy solution, 100% independently confirmed.
