Am I missing something here? In this SAFIRE project they are attempting to replicate conditions on the SUN, firing up high energy plasmas. Brilliant plasma research. How do they reckon on LENR when they are studying hydrogen fusion at several million degrees K? Surely this is simple High Energy Nuclear Reaction phenomena AKA hot fusion, and so they have no need of Li, nano-wells (cracks), magnetic acceleration or sparks etc. But like all other hot fusion projects the energy in is still much greater than energy out. Bacteria/viruses have been able to harness just about every other biochemical/physical reaction in nature (including interstellar travel on asteroids) so why not LENR?
