Cheap, unlimited energyRichard Treadgold | October 20, 2011
Mark Gibbs, at Forbes Magazine, introduces, with caution, the E-Cat process, invented by one Andrea Rossi.
This is a room-termperature fusion device, promising almost unlimited energy from relatively small amounts of nickel and hydrogen. Electricity could be produced in every suburb without the need of gigantic power stations, at so little cost it wouldn’t be sensible to meter it.
Some measurement data seem to be available from a demonstration.
An apparently public demonstration in the US planned for October 28 could produce more confirmation.
I hope it proves true and it’s not just another false alarm. H/T Michael Treadgold
UPDATE 1, 20 Oct 2011, 12:25 NZDT: There’s a long, rambling article about the inventor, Rossi, at Pure Energy Systems that includes a graph of machine temperatures and is followed by a bunch of links to articles covering the E-Cat.
