On Andrea Rossi’s blog, Journal of Nuclear Physics, Rossi commented that the Hot Cat would not be stopped for anything except to make checks.
This information, which he divulged today (on July 18), has caused some excitement in the LENR community, especially for those who follow the ongoing E-Cat developments.
At the beginning of his tests with the newly christened Hot Cat, Rossi said that they were hoping for a 90 day run of the unit. However, Joseph Fine, a frequent poster on Rossi’s blog, asked:
“How many days will the current Hot Cat test last? I think you said the test would run for 90 days or about 13 weeks. Is that still true, or are you going to run for 100 days to show that the Hot Cat can run even longer?”
Rossi’s reply was:
“The operation will never be stopped, but for some day to make checks.”
This is good news, indicating that the tests are actually more than satisfactory. The Hot Cat is still running, is operating at least part time in self-sustained mode, and there is, apparently, no plans to end the current test. All we need now are the reports to be released in September.
