Andrea Rossi’s Hot Cat is still being tested by a third party, and the industrial E-Cat is being prepared for delivery. For people following the story of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat, a third party test was first mentioned back in November, then pushed them to December. Then, the third party decided to re-do some of the tests, postponing the results even more.
This has lead many who are following the story to wonder if we will even know when the reports are released, anyway. A commenter called Valac asked, on the Journal of Nuclear Physics:
“Would there be a press conference upon the completion of the third party test – at least to mark the significance of the event, regardless of result?”
Andrea Rossi replied:
“I will not make any press conference regarding the third party independent report. As I always said, it is not connected with our industrial strategy of production: it is a purely scientific job, independent from us and our activity.”
This answer serves to reinforce that the third party is totally separate from Mr. Rossi, the Leonardo Corp., and the new U.S. partner. However, it leaves us no closer to understanding whether or not the release will be widely noted, or simply appear in some obscure publication.
Seven Karels, who has been steadfast in optimism toward Rossi’s work, asked him:
“Please promise you will let us know when the third party report on eCat has been released and please provide information on how to access it.”
Mr. Rossi said, simply, “ok”.
That is a relief. If Mr. Rossi says he’ll do something, he does it. If he is informed of the release of the third party report, he will certainly share it on the JONP. We, along with he, will simply have to continue waiting.
