The document embedded here is our manifesto for a set of initial experiments to try to answer some basic questions about the paper by Levi, et al, on the 2014 study of Rossi's device (often referred to as the Lugano Report"). This report made quite a flurry of discussion happen throughout the LENR/Cold Fusion/New Energy communities. Additionally, it has inspired a lot of work by the MFMP team - both old team members and new contributors - to analyze every detail and reverse engineer whatever we can. The reason why is obvious. It has been obvious since Rossi blasted onto the scene almost 4 years ago, that IF his device works, it heralds a miraculous new future for energy. The potential is so amazing it tantalizes everyone with visions of how the world could be made better. The result is that EVERYONE would love to see really compelling evidence that this energy source is real. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Unfortunately, the Lugano study did not rise to extraordinary proof. It left open a lot of questions.
We feel that those questions are an opportunity for the MFMP to employ our method of crowdsourcing solutions and performing Live Open Science to explore them openly with the assistance of anyone interested. Our intent, if we can raise the necessary funds, is to prepare the apparatus and then bring our team together in December and stream the experiments live on the web with data streaming, live blogging, google hangouts (or similar) and video clips.
As long as it is all put together and the team is assembled, we will take questions and tweak our procedures to address concerns. The document below is our experiment plan. We welcome suggestions and criticisms in the comments below, or on our facebook page.
We will try to get a system to embed this here, but for now, you can follow the progress at HUG here...

Parkhomov sealing method tests
Dr. Parkhomov, has given us permission to release these notes from Alan Goldwater's attempts to replicate his sealing method plus his comments.
