Is that a reasonable comparison, IO?
You are not refuting me. You are making my point exactly. Yes, HTS has not encountered opposition or stigma. HTS has been well-funded. HTS is easy to demonstrate and validate.
And despite all that, it has only been commercialized to a very small degree and most potential applications are still far from practical with the final outcome unknown.
Therefore the comparison is pertinent in that prognosticating a timetable, cost, and characteristics of practical LENR technology is blowing smoke. Nobody can know until and if it happens regardless of how many papers are in Jed’s database.
