CERN: Neutrinos are faster than the speed of light

Spool-up the FTL drives.
Scientists are shocked at the new discovery which shakes the bedrock of modern physics.
There are things that travel faster than the speed of light.
This is the seemingly impossible result of the OPERA experiment in which the subatomic particles, neutrinos are shown to be faster than the speed of light and are confounding researchers at CERN and elsewhere.
The OPERA neutrino oscillation experiment produces streams of neutrinos that are directed to the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy. 
The tiny particles have been shot from CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland to to the Gran Sasso Labs in Italy over 730 km (400 mi.) away. It just so happens to arrive earlier than what’s thought possible. It was measured to be about 60 nanoseconds faster- much sooner than a beam of light traveling that same distance. 
Such an observation, if verified, would have enormous implications in our understanding of the fundamental laws of nature. This would also be a direct challenge to the foundations of Einstein’s theory that has been the cornerstone of theoretical physics for over a century.
There could be errors in their calculations of course. And the scientists at CERN are soliciting other researchers around the world to verify their findings for any potential errors or irregularities.
On the other hand, if the results could be proven correct, this would then require a complete revamping of modern-day understanding of the “Special Theory of Relativity” based on the fundamental law that nothing can move faster than the speed of light.
So, if there is something that is not thoroughly understood occurring in Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat, it may just be further evidence that we don't know everything - yet.
Just the beginning in the unraveling of the "old way" of thinking and the beginning of the New Era of science.

Siemens Calls it Quits with Nukes

According to Bloomberg News: Siemens AG will not be returning to the nuclear power industry.
This statement was made by Siemens CEO Peter Loescher during an interview with Der Spiegal.
Siemens, which was has built some of the largest reactors in the world has been slowly retreating from that industry over the last few years. Now that both German and Europe's attitude regarding nuclear plants have changed, Siemens viewpoint is that it's time to "close that chapter" in that business sector.
They have sold their stake in that field to French owned Areva S.A.
They will remain, however, in the design and manufacturing of steam turbines that can be used in coal-fired or nuclear power plants (did someone say E-cat?)
Siemens has been in business for over 150 years and employs more than 3300 people world-wide. The energy division of Siemens generates their second largest revenue source of more that $9.34 billion.
Lately they have been active in renewable energy with wind turbines that are used in wind farms from the Sahara to California. They have an installed capacity of over  9 gigawatts. Their largest wind turbine generates 2.3 megawatts and has a rotor blade diameter of over 330 feet.
They are also active in solar-thermal energy generators that uses a liquid salt medium.

Ready… Set… Go!

The time is fast approaching for the public unveiling of the marvelous Rossi 1-MegaWatt fully-functional steam plant.
1-MW E-Cat energy plant
These photos have been recently surfaced from the Swedish Nyteknik website which has privileged rights to Andrea Rossi and his E-Cat. A video of the plant can also be found at Nyteknik
Steam out
Cold water in...
These photos that were taken at the Bologna assembly plant, show the new configuration of the plant. It now uses a optimized catalyzer that is reported to be self-sustaining (not requiring any external energy source) and produces more power than the originally intended units used in the plant.
In the originally proposed plant, there was to be around 300 smaller and more stable units. Those units also required a slight external power input needed for the creation of the excess power out. The rational by Ing. A. Rossi was that the smaller units were more stable but also required the external exciter or resistance heater energy input. Instead, 52 newer and more efficient units with a higher output of 27 kilowatts are being incorporated into the plant.
The plant, which appears to be a conventional 20 foot shipping container, is now in transit from Italy to the U.S.A. for the still unknown customer or organizational entity.
This “October Surprise” – the unveiling of the New Fire to leading scientists and the general public which have been conspicuous held ignorant by the media of this epoch making device.

What promises to be a historic inauguration of mankind into a new energy age is fast approaching.

Is NASA to do the testing of the E-Cat?

Reports and rumors of an agreement between Eng. Rossi and NASA are running rampant on the web lately.
There seems to be more substance in this then what first might be thought.
Postings from various bogs sets the tone for an impending and thorough testing of the E-cat to commence tomorrow, September 3rd. 

According to the Italian blog Renewable Energy Sources Forum , “Rossi has agreed to carry out testing at NASA laboratories beginning tomorrow September 3rd.” 
See the previous posting here on Coldfire from June 10th regarding the viewpoint of Dennis Bushnell of NASA and their analysis of LENR technology. 

Could this alliance with NASA be what Rossi was alluding to in several of his previous blog postings. 
August 30th:The tests will last 2 months; the scientists will have full access to all but the reactors.” 
August 29th: You do not know the People I deal with, so you can’t understand. From my side, I am bound from confidentiality agreements, so I cannot disclose the names.” 
August 26th : The tests closed doors for the US Customer will start in september. As for the other issue, which I want not to deal publicly, the problem has been resolved.” 
On August 7th, Rossi said the following: "But the tech must go on, we signed a tremendous contract in the USA. The Customer has already made plans for 1,000 plants in the USA, and has the financial dimension for this."

If this is truly going to happen then this will be a milestone in bringing this activity of revolutionary technology to the forefront of headline news. And in the process, making the earth’s general populace aware of what is a truly a momentous event in mankind’s history.

More convincing words from the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency

In a declassified Technology Forecast report from the DIA, it has been reported back in 2009 that-
 “If nuclear reactions in LENR experiments are real and controllable, DIA assesses that whoever produces the first commercialized LENR power source could revolutionize energy production and storage for the future."
Also mentioned in the report:
• If the excess heat from these experiments could be captured and intensified, could LENR be used as a power source for engines, batteries, or other equipment?
• If nuclear particles could be generated and transmute elements, could LENR be used to mitigate hazardous waste or to neutralize weapons of mass destruction?
• If the various modes of energy production could be identified and optimized, could LENR be used to create designer materials or critical resources that are in short supply or serve as a tailored, "dial-a-mode" power source?
• If rapid, explosive energy output can occur in one or several modes, could LENR serve as a new high-energy-density explosive?

Also said in the report– DIA assesses with high confidence that if LENR can produce nuclear-origin energy at room temperatures, this disruptive technology could revolutionize energy production and storage, since nuclear reactions release millions of times more energy per unit mass than do any known chemical fuel.

Why or why hasn't there been any media coverage on this??
