…about cold fusion, hot fusion, nuclear fusion ..?
From the scientific point of view, in recent decades, what progress has been done?
Well in short, it is understood that part of the problem, especially on cold fusion but also on the hot fusion (….) is the development of instruments (note: materials) that support endless pressures, endless temperatures …
Cold Fusion (…) where are we?
