Regarding your need of a single "killer paper". I think it is a misconception.
Scientific papers are normally based on previous work ( haha, you know - to make some progress ! ;-)... )
That means you may end critizising elements in a…
Oystla, that is true when the evidence is all ordinary. In this case if all evidence is ordinary we have no reason to believe extraordinary theories - they do not have the weight of support needed. There must therefore be some strong evidence.
Consider, how could such nuclear reactions with enormous energy density, not be clearly and unambiguously detectable in some of the thousands of LENR experiments? I'm not asking for replication, just a single experiment which is well documented from a source capable of conducting good experiments and writing them up in detail (like Fleischmann).
