Cold Fusion Times just published reference to old cold fusion documents
Previous US gov't classified, and other, documents from the early and mid-years of the Cold Fusion coverup ["Heavywatergate"]. They are now public through FOIA and FairUse, courtesty of the Black Vault
"The announcement on 23 March 1989 by Pons and Fleischmann that they had achieved power generation from nuclear reactions at ordinary temperature had a rapid and enormous impact. About six weeks later, the cover stories of three major popular news magazines in the U. S. were on ‘cold fusion’. The response to the prospect of easy and inexhaustible energy, maybe with little residual radiation, was comparable to the public reaction to Roentgen’s report of x-rays in 1895."
"Claims of excess power produced in electrochemical cells have been made by many investigators including those from two Navy laboratories. The excess power reportedly occurs in palladium electrodes highly loaded with deuterium. Other anomalous effects such helium-4, tritium and low energy radiation production have also been reported. This report summarizes the experimental results from a number of electrochemical loading/calorimetric experiments on palladium electrodes run at NRL."
"The objective of this work was to verify and reproduce experimental observations of Cold Nuclear Fusion (CNF), as originally reported in 1989 by Fleischmann, Pons, and Hawkins (see reference 1)."
"The report of the observation of “cold fusion” reaction accompanying the saturation of palladium and titanium by deuterium appeared entirely unexpectedly and has attracted enormous interest worldwide. Meanwhile, however, references to the possibility of such phenomena go back some years."
