Rossi Has New Self-Sustaining Cold Fusion Claim

Andrea Rossi has made cold fusion (aka low energy nuclear reaction) claims for nearly ten years. Rossi’s claims have failed serious attempts at validation. The previous results related to excess energy seem to been explained by completely fraudulent demonstrations. Electricity and heat were made from hidden connections to conventional sources. On January 31, 2019, Rossi’s …

Australia and partners Boeing, BAE Systems and DLR (German Aerospace Center) have a successful mach 7.5 hypersonic missile test

Chief Defence Scientist Dr Alex Zelinsky today congratulated an Australian-United States team on the success of an experimental hypersonic flight at the Woomera Test Range. The experimental rocket reached an apogee of 278 km, achieving the targeted speed of Mach 7.5 (seven and a half times the speed of sound). The team estimates that its …

Rossi 1 Megawatt Energy Catalyzer is a failure after 3 years of testing by Industrial Heat

A lawsuit has been filed by Andrea Rossi and Leonardo Corporation against Industrial Heat. Industrial Heat rejects the claims in the suit. They are without merit and we are prepared to vigorously defend ourselves against this action. Industrial Heat has worked for over three years to substantiate the results claimed by Mr. Rossi from the …

Model 3 batteries with 10% silicon anodes for higher energy density and lower cost

Sanford C. Bernstein’s Mark Newman wrote to his clients on March 31 describing a significant advance in battery technology that would make the Model 3’s batteries far more energetic and cheaper than anything else on the market. Telsa’s Model 3 batteries, made by Panasonic, start with a negative electrode—an anode—made up of 10% silicon A …

USA not stepping up so France will end up working with Russia and Assad against ISIS

French President Hollande earlier this week signaled a shift in his long-standing position that Assad should go before any solution could be found to the Syrian crisis. In recent days, Paris and Moscow appeared to move closer diplomatically after ISIL claimed responsibility for the downing of a Russian plane over Egypt’s Sinai desert and the …

World has now warmed 1 degree Celsius from pre-industrial times and would warm another 0.6 degrees if CO2 emissions stopped today

Even if carbon dioxide levels stopped rising today, the world would still warm by 1.6 °C above pre-industrial levels –which is more than three-quarters of the way to the 2 °C limit the world is supposed to be aiming for. That is the implication of two sets of figures announced on Monday. Global average levels …
