    “Cold fusion is rising again, thanks to allegedly successful experiments and demonstrations. Now interest in the field, also known as low energy nuclear reactions (LENR), has reached the highest levels, as the House Committee on Armed Services has asked the Secretary of Defense to provide “a briefing on the military utility of recent U.S. industrial base LENR advancements” by September 22.


    The Committee quotes a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) assessment that says if cold fusion works, it would be a disruptive technology that could revolutionize energy production and storage. That is putting it mildly. Commercial cold fusion as claimed by Andrea Rossi and others, outlined in our April article, would remove dependence on oil or other fossil fuels, domestic or imported. In military terms, it would enable ships, aircraft, and tanks to continue indefinitely (or at least for months) without refueling, with abundant power for lasers or other directed-energy weapons.”

  • the slides are interesting.

    quite skeptic but report many classic results.


    A new critic of Holmlid experiment seems proposed.


    It is true, Holmlid has changed his thinking about the primary reaction behind the production of energy related to metalized hydrogen. Holmlid now understands that the energy that he is seeing in the production and acceleration of mesons are far more than what fusion can supply. Holmlid now understands that the energy needed to drive those subatomic particles to near the speed of light must come from the decay of nucleons(protons and neutrons) rather than any form of nuclear binding energy derived from the nucleus. Any fusion products must come from muon catalyzed fusion as a secondary side reaction where the muons come from the energy released by the primary reaction.
