After years of dodging outside assessment... Rossi and Cold Fusion
May 23, 2013 12:30 PM Subscribe
"Against all probability, a device that purports to use cold fusion to generate vast amounts of power has been verified by a panel of independent scientists . . . The cold fusion device being tested has roughly 10,000 times the energy density and 1,000 times the power density of gasoline. Even allowing for a massively conservative margin of error, the scientists say that the cold fusion device they tested is 10 times more powerful than gasoline — which is currently the best fuel readily available to mankind."

After a few years, Rossi has returned with "his E-Cat project, a device that produces heat through a process called a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR)."
Earlier, Rossi has kept his technique secret, but now an independent panel of seven scientists has reviewed and published a research paper on Arxiv.
Although the paper remains to be peer reviewed, "the tests suggest that the reactor managed to produce just under twice as much energy as consumed in the first test and more than four-and-a-half times as much energy after a few problems were addressed in the latter exercise. Rough estimates of the low-end energy density and power density of the reactor put them at 10,000 times and 1,000 times that of gasoline, respectively"
