Ascoli: " ....conclusion, this 2006 publication confirms that the 1992 boil-off experiment is the most important of F&P and it seems to be the only one of interest for practical applications.."
Well, you confuse two vital points in this science.
1. Practical applications for use in society
2. Papers that try to understand the causes and mechanism of LENR / cold fusion.
F&P where very clear of their Intentions allready in 1989: their plans was to engineer a practical system that could compete with the normal nuclear power stations in producing practical power. Also as proven by their Patent from 1990. You do not spend huge sums of money on patents If you have no commercial intentions.
So for practical applications, the 1992 paper was of importance, since that was their intentions of their reearch in France, and the paper describes their experiment in that direction.
But for the science of CF/LENR it is not the important one. The seminal paper of 1990 will and always will be the most important Scientific F&P paper.
And it will be understanding the science behind LENR that will rewarded the Nobel price, not engineering a practical system for utility.
