Examples of Cold Fusion in nature.

    I wonder what we will find at Ultima Thule if LENR is present. Would be cool if some predictions played out.


    Regarding a dusty atmosphere as you describe?


    1. Would this be micro meter particles suspended in a haze density and limited in extent related to their respective nearfield radiation?


    2. Would it exhibit particulate EM emmission bands. UV, IR, RF.


    3. Would we see heavy elements. That are hard to explain at these distances. A dusting of Iron or Nickel say on the surface or suspended in the atmosphere?


    Well In a few days we may find out.


    I suppose most likely it’s just a snowball. But if it turns out to be more in the year 2019 of all years. It will be somehow poetic.


    Happy Christmas and New Year to all..

    must ? Why ?


    In a asteroid like body that is only 18 miles in diameter, it is too small for the standard heat sources that are assumed to make a celestial body geologically active.


    For example, Pluto which is geologically active was assumed to produce heat through the generation of ice as it solidifies over 4.6 billion years. Such a claim is not possible when it comes to such a small body as Ultima Thule happens to be. Other reasons that are given are also precluded because of a small body size

    Which other "standard" heat sources do You know ?

  • Perhaps the latest news on Mother Nature is cool here


    Latest news from the official Atom-Ecology site is that

    cold fusion reactions can be endothermic ..

    The hours long endothermicity appears to be previously unreported


    http://atom-ecology.russgeorge…05/25/colder-cold-fusion/


    Although solid-solid phase transitions are common ,the endothermicity

    due to melting to a metastable liquid

    has been observed to be seconds in duration

    https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms11113


    So the RussGeorge's notion of conversion of thermal energy into 'mass' may be plausible.


    Mother Nature may achieve nucleofusion more delicately than heretofore believed..

    It could be that the fuel pellet is entangled with the other fuel pellets and reactors in the lab and those other entities are at room ambient temperatures. This tracking of the temperature with the outside temperature inside the vacuum Dewars could result from an entangled sharing of energy between all entangled entities.

  • Regarding this general topic, people have been saying for a long time that cold fusion might occur in nature. I wouldn't know about that, and I have no opinion, but let me point to a few things in the literature about this:


    Biological transmutation. Such as: https://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/BiberianJPjcondensedza.pdf


    Tritium in deep lakes and possibly from volcanoes: https://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/JiangSobservatio.pdf


    Primordial heat in earth. There seems to be too much of it. Fission explains some but maybe not enough.


    Heat in other planets. I don't recall which ones.


  • I meant, valid for Ultima Thule. Heat by body formation and tidal can be shrinked down to one source. Radioactive and LENR can bs shrinked down to one. So, only solar heating stays....


  • Two tidally locked bodies don't produce tidal friction. That is why Charon is frozen solid. Charon also shows a heavily pitted surface laid down over billions of years. The theory that Pluto's ocean is insulated by a gas hydrate can't happen when that roiling ocean is heavily peppered by large impactors like Charon for billions of years. The only option that remains, Pluto must have an internal heat source. LENR

    Ammonia on Pluto Hints at a Massive Hidden Ocean That Could Support Life


    Quote

    What makes it even more surprising is that ammonia doesn't last long (in cosmic terms) out in the open in the Solar System. Ultraviolet light and cosmic radiation degrade it relatively quickly - we're talking along the lines of millions of years.


    Pluto is billions of years old, so something had to have put it there - and recently, too.


    There's a clue in the way the ammonia is distributed: it seems to have been spewed out by several cryovolcanic vents: volcanoes that erupt subzero liquid volatiles such as water, methane and ammonia instead of molten rock.



    The current Establishment backed theory that the underground oceans inside Pluto were initially formed when Pluto condensed from the primordial nebula and has been preserved for 4.5 billion years through the insulating action of a methane ice upper layer is undercut by the observation of ongoing transport of Ammonia all over the surface of Pluto produced by many cryovolcanoes.


    The only option that remains, Pluto must have a currently ongoing and persistent internal heat source. LENR






  • It's worth to note, whole cold fusion research has started with Dr. Steven Jones observations of hellium-3 content around volcanoes and hydrothermal vents. Many cold fusion reactions produce He-3 isotope as a byproduct, thus increasing the practical importance of their research. See for example What Keeps the Earth Cooking? Helium-3 Leaking from Earth in Southern California. Neon could be also formed by nuclear reactions at place inside the Earth mantle - in similar way like the He-3.


    According to astronomers, there's a “dark matter hurricane” blowing through our corner of the Milky Way galaxy. Right this second, it's passing over Earth. This dark matter can affect the speed of decay or even cold fusion of radioactive elements. Not that the climate change of catastrophic 2012 movie has been initiated by "bewildered" neutrinos, which "melted" the Earth crust. Not quite accidentally its plot has been labeled as the most "unscientific movie ever" both by MIT both NASA in unison.

    Later cold fusion research indicates, that the neutrinos, high frequency electric noise and magnetic fields could catalyze the low energy nuclear reactions by itself. Radioactive decay is key ingredient behind Earth's heat and links herein. The heating of oceans and Earth crust induced by low-energy neutrinos and dark matter pervading solar system plays an important role in my geothermal theory of global warming.

    He3 is a prominent geoscience puzzle,

    The conventional assumption is that this He3 is primordial He3 from before Planet Earth

    existed over 4 biilon years ago.. since U/Th decay does not produce He3,only He4.


    There is no evidence for this assumption even though Ma and Chen state compelling evidence

    "Recent studies of volcanic hot spots have foundplumes entrained from Earth’s deep mantle hosting high
    3He=4He ratios compared to the values identified in midocean-ridge basalts that form by melting the upper mantle
    These observations provide compelling evidence for theexistence of a deep-mantle reservoir of primordial helium;
    however, it remains a formidable challenge to explain theorigin and nature of this enigmatic helium reservoir.


    However,I would agree with this statement

    "Being a noble gas, helium does not easily form chemical compounds –

    and therefore any primordial helium-3 within the Earth

    should have floated off into space long ago.

    Yeah, in peoples underdeveloped understanding this might seem to be the case.
    Fortunately there are others than You around.

  • I do think it would be fascinating if we found different He3 to He4 ratios in LENR experiments than we expected naturally. Actually any He3 production with no associated Tritium, or Lithium for example. It would be interesting. It would imply another source maybe. We could speculate wildly what that might be... condensed matter... compound nuclei of another process involving their assimilation in nuclei. But perhaps the signature might give sue clues towards a mechanism. Eg He3 like Spectrum but not quite (due to slight differences in reduced mass)... etc.


    Since it is a light element it should be able to be measured from its optical spectrum.

  • if we found different He3 to He4 ratios in LENR experiments

    Arata and Zhang found with palladium

    "that four parts of 4He are produced for every 3 parts of 3He".

    https://www.infinite-energy.com/images/pdfs/arata.pdf


    Alexandrov for Pd, Mb, Ir? 2018


    "DC plasma spectroscopy showed peaks typical for both 3He and 4He."

    https://canadiancor.com/propos…pment-of-an-lenr-reactor/


    He3 and He4 amounts are low and difficult to measure so many people

    have attempted to measure...neutrons and heat are easier to measure
