Hmm... There was always the secret catalyst, I thought maybe it came
out as Lithium or somehow the Inconel wire, but I think there's
a bit more to the Inconel.

According to Rossi’s original reports, he first noticed the heat
production in an externally heated copper reaction chamber fueled only
with nickel powder and hydrogen gas – with no other substances present.
If the Inconel has been a participant in more recent reactions, it is
almost certainly as an additional source of nickel (fuel).

It looks like the magic is in the dogbone thing.

So, while I agree that you probably won't ever be able to buy a device
of this energy density at Home Depot, I'd expect them to show up
at local electrical power substations.
We got to the moon in 10 years. Why does it take so much time to put
a box around the dogbone? Assuming the hype is true and it works.
Color me "Impatient"!

Hmm - Do you think? 1260˚C = 2300˚F and 1400˚C = 2552˚F
(The boiling point of water is 100˚C = 212˚F and the melting point of

It could – but society’s choice so far has been to vilify all those
who’ve worked to make that happen.
They’ll (probably) show up in both places, but not until after they’ve
been used to power tanks, drones, and the new weapons technologies they
You’re (conveniently?) forgetting that the engineers and scientists
involved with getting to the moon were characterized as “good guys” and
provided with all the resources they needed, while the folks who’ve
wanted the world to have this technology have been characterized as
scammers, cheats, and liars – their reported results characterized as
“smoke and mirrors” - and they’ve been obliged to pay the costs of
development out of their own pockets and on their own time.
Trying to be charitable, I color you “Foolish”.

He operated as if ECAT was a scam...and people agreed.
While the technology has certainly enabled terrestrial innovation,
at the time, nobody had any reason to go except "that we can".
Kennedy needed an objective that people could buy into that spent

All you gotta do is DEMONSTRATE that it works.
Assuming the data is truthful, it seems that this has been done.
And if it's as easy as it looks, YOU should have one working in your
garage. They can't keep the secret sauce secret forever.
I'm kinda surprised that someone didn't steal the prototype.
The world runs on money. And there's so much money in this thing
that it's uncountable...if it works.
And that's the question that nobody has definitively answered.
Whatever floats your boat. Don't matter to me what color you think I am.
