Rossi Hopes to Retrofit Coal Power Plants With E-Cats

Andrea Rossi gave an interesting short comment on the Journal of Nuclear Physics when asked by Bernie Koppenhofer whether he agreed that with anticipated efficiencies, the hot cat would be suitable for retrofitting existing inefficient power plants. Rossi responded: “Yes, retrofitting coal plants in particular” I followed up with a comment about Industrial Heat visitingRead more

MFMP and Stoyan Sarg Team Up to Experiment with Nickel Powder

The Martin Fleischmann memorial project have announced on their Quantumheat.org blog that they have entered into a partnership with Canadian physicist Dr. Stoyan Sarg who has researched extensively in the field of cold fusion and who is one of the most prominent scientists in the world advocating for nickel-hydrogen LENR research. Dr. Sarg recently publishedRead more

Julia Greer on Super-Lightweight Nano Metamaterials

This is somewhat off-topic, but something I found so interesting I thought I’d share it here. I recently came across this video presentation via NextBigFuture.com by Julia R. Greer, Professor of Materials Science at California Institute of Technology (Caltech), who gave a fascinating ‘Moonshot’ presentation as part of Google’s ‘Solve for X’ program which seeksRead more

Structural Impacts of LENR

I sometimes read comments that I consider worthy of being placed in a post of their own. Here’s a comment that has recently been submitted by ECW reader Oaklandthinktank, which sets forth an interesting analysis of how LENR could impact structural factors around the world. LENR impacts structural factors, which are the long-term determinants ofRead more

Mass Media Focuses on Hot Fusion Achievement

The news coming out of the National Ignition Facility at the Livermore National Laboratory regarding the achievement of fusion from almost 200 lasers blasting a tritium/deuterium (both isotopes of hydrogen) fuel pellet has really caught the attention of the national and international media. A search on Google news today brings up 288 articles from aRead more

A Vision of a Cold Fusion/LENR Future — How to Adapt to Abundance?

Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to the ‘how big a deal’ thread. It’s gotten a ton of comments, and sometimes those threads become somewhat unweildy, so I thought I’d start a new one and use the following thought-provoking comment by ‘friendlyprogrammer’ as a starting point. His/her post describes many things that IRead more

How Big of a Deal is Cold Fusion/LENR?

Thanks to all the readers who have helped identify the various companies and organizations working in the cold fusion/LENR field. Some were new, others were familiar, and some just forgotten. When I put them all in a list, I was quite surprised with the number of groups involved. It shows that there is considerable interestRead more

MIT Cold Fusion — The Revolution Has Begun (Video)

Thanks to Mr. Moho for informing us about a video that has been posted on Youtube by someone called ‘AlienScientist’ who attended (and filmed) the recent MIT Cold Fusion seminar and reports about what he has learned. He does a very nice job of summarizing the key points from the seminar, pointing out that PeterRead more

Swartz-Hagelstein MIT Cold Fusion Videos Posted

Many thanks to Mr. Moho who posted this very useful comment in an earlier thread about the MIT Cold Fusion Seminar. I thought it deserved our attention, so I have made it a separate post. All lectures from the Cold Fusion 101 Class at MIT have been posted on thecoldfusionnow.org Youtube channel. I would suggest everybody toRead more

Rossi on Peer Review

I posted a question to Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today regarding the upcoming third party report. Rossi has said that the report would be published in a ‘peer-reviewed magazine’, but I recall that prior to last year’s report he said the same thing, and it ended up being published on arxiv.org,Read more

Homemade LENR

It’s been quite interesting lately reading and watching various comments and videos about the ‘H-Cat’ system that we’ve covered here lately. In addition to the scientific and technological discussions that are going on, there is the interesting phenomenon of people getting their hands dirty, and getting involved with building and experimenting on their own inRead more

Final Report of Cold Fusion 101 Class at MIT: The NANOR Emerges

Many thanks to Barry Simon for submitting the following report about the 2014 Short Course 101 on Cold Fusion at MIT. In a word, Cold Fusion 101 at MIT was inspiring. The lectures started off with Peter Hagelstein discussing the early days of Pons and Fleischmann and why their first experiments were not successfully replicated. (ConspiracyRead more
