Just received notification of this:
Energetic Particle Emission in Pd/D Co-deposition: An Undergraduate Research Project to Replicate a New Scientific Phenomenon
Lawrence Forsley and Pamela Mosier-Boss
In my opinion, this is reprehensible behavior. There are no indications in the paper of any danger arising from potential explosions of the apparati, yet it is *apparently* pretty much an 'original F&P open-cell setup, you know, the one that went up and blew a hole in the floor of their lab... (I say 'apparently' because I can find no explicit figure of the set-up, but tracking back through their referencees I finally found mention that they were using an open cell in their original work, and I assume they did the same for this reported work.)
As I have mentioned several times before, when you electrolyze water and mix the gases, you make an explosive mix. Further, if you believe F&P, (and Szpak, et al) you have a potential nuclear explosive.
And these people exposed 3 groups of undergraduates to the possible exploding apparatus. Wonder what Andrew Riley would say.
