LENR Lecture at the University of Northern Iowa

I’ll be heading off to Cedar Falls, Iowa this afternoon to attend a lecture to be given this evening about LENR given by Tom Wind, an Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer — so while it’s being held at the university, it’s not being given by a UNI employee.

I’m not quite sure what to expect from the talk — I haven’t heard of Mr. Wind, and there’s not much on the web about him except that he’s been involved in consulting for the wind power industry which is quite strong here in Iowa. The billing for the event seems to be quite positive, so I’m not expecting a smear or debunking presentation:

“Join us for this presentation to learn about Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). This relatively new technology was discovered in 1989 by two electrochemists at the University of Utah. A few determined scientists around the world continued this research to fully develop this technology with a few small companies who are on the verge of commercializing products that use this technology. This technology allows controlled fusion of hydrogen into helium in small modular reactors that can fit on a table top. The result is abundant thermal energy, with no radiation dangers, no radioactive byproducts, and no combustion of fossil fuels. The cost of the hydrogen, the necessary materials and the catalysts are but a small fraction of the cost of traditional fossil fuels. Could this be the possible energy solution of the future?”

The University of Northen Iowa is one of the three state-funded universities in the state, and has a student population of around 14,000. The Cedar Falls-Waterloo metro area has a population of about 164,000. The event has been well publicized by the university, so I hope there’ll be a decent attendance. I hope I’ll meet some ECW readers there!

I’m looking forward to the meeting, and will report back what I learn.

    Wonderful day

  • Mr. Moho

    Will you be live blogging the event?

    • ecatworld

      Yes. So far only a few folks here so far.

        Ok, event is over. A long ride home ahead. It was a good event and I’m glad I came. Report tomorrow.

    I’d be more comfortable of a positive coverage if the presenter’s name was Tom Cat

    • ecatworld

      Tom gave very positive coverage of LENR

  • David Nygren

    Frank, will we get a video stream ? 😉

    • ecatworld

      Hi David, personally, I won’t be able to provide live streaming. I will try to find out if the event organizers will be providing a live stream, or maybe will record the event for later viewing.

        Okey! I understand, if someone have a better smartphone, its not so hard to do. Check this link.

          Ok I’m here now – they have a film crew here so it’s being recorded. I’m early and have been invited for a meal with the presenters.
