Thanks to Ghost Dawg for letting us know that the UK version of Wired has posted an article on the eCat. It is blanced and may be the forerunner to the hoped-for change in media coverage.
To all of you commenting and posting news; thank you. I will update this post with the most interesting developments.
The Wired article is here:
According to Daniele at 22passi.com (who is at the test and twittering) the module is up and running in self-sustain mode.
A new report from a test done in July of a module reportedly similar to the subject of today’s test.
[thank you, Ivan Mohorovicic]
3 Hours into self-sustain mode. (Note: We do not know if this is an absolute or ‘periodic’ self-sustain – either is significant as it shortens the time required for definitive conclusions).
Translation: “…however, I can confirm that [the module] is still in self-sustaining regime… since three hours ago…”
Now 4 hours.
Comment by Renzo:
“Passerini has just writtern in the comments of his blog that the self-sustainining is continuous, without further electrical inputs!!!!”
Comment from Sebastion re 22passi:
The output of the E-Cat is like … touching a coffee pot on the fire: you can not keep your finger on it. What T the datalog measures you will read tomorrow after Ny Teknik publish. The delta T on the secondary is the same order of magnitude as the test done in February (some of you will remember my full).
Self-sustenance is stable with no interruptions (COP therefore infinite?).
Rossi announced early on that test will be reweighed at the end of everything and opened up…”
Comment from Renzo re 22passi:
“At 7pm, after 4 hours in continuous self sustaining mode, the reaction has been stopped as planned. This will buy enough time for the E-Cat to cool off. Then it will be dissasembled and controlled. The end of the operations is expected by 12pm”
Comment from Renzo:
“A twit by raymond zreick:
“between 3pm and 7pm the median difference in temperature has been 5° (between water in input and water in output) , with 0,6 cubic meters for hour”
Comment from Ivan Mohorovicic:
” Watch raymond_zreick’s tweet account for added information:
Comment from AB:
It is not very pretty on the inside. If you were thinking about hi-tech… no. To be honest, the open e-cat is almost disappointing. Is that really all to it? Yet, it seems to do its job well (make lots of heat): we have not been shown the mysterious component, though.<< Previous Post -- -- Next post >>
