Hideo Kozima is sharing his "Cold Fusion News" publication in English through his ResearchGate Account. He is mainly analyzing recent media articles or broadcasts on the topic and providing and analysis from his perspective. I just took a look at the latest issue (March 20th 2021) and found it very interesting as there are media coverage of Cold fusion I had no idea had taken place, commented.

Another: "I love my Tesla, but..." story: https://www.forbes.com/sites/j…-problem/?sh=6c8b43997e81
This is a classic problem for the Teslas in cold weather, I have seen at least one article some years ago with exactly the same topic. The problem is not really of the brand but of Li ion batteries, and batteries in general, cold weather hurts them badly.
The value of 1023 atoms/cm3 as suggested by NASA seems to be related to the metal lattice constant (Erbium: 355pm) suggesting 1 Deuteron per lattice unit.
Since the whole "lattice confinement fusion" affaire became widely known, I have seen media articles quoting Lawrence Forsley talking exactly about "Metallic hydrogen" and 1024 Hydrogen atoms (one order of magnitude than 1023). Those are the figures talked about in the 2009-2011 publications where Holmlid had something degree of involvement, just to re state my point that Holmlid had left a seed of inspiration into the NASA team, even whe he was just researching Rydberg matter.
Thanks for posting this here AlainCo , I was thinking on starting a thread for commenting these very good news, but, as I was also wondering if this new initiative would be interested in replicating and studying the LEC, I think we can follow up the discussion here.
I think this is very significative, and I really hope this doesn´t become a Google 2 history of failure to replicate the Fleischmann Pons Effect, and that they consider reaching to the LENR community and pay attention to the suggestions of the people with decades of experience on the field.
Do we have anyone known in this team? is there a way to reach out to them? Would Frank Gordon be interested in this new team to research the LEC? Just posing the questions to kick the ball forward.

Hydrodynamic Cavitation and Shear, causing transmutation within a hydrocarbon, interesting. One could say that the Oxygen could come from decomposition of the Hydrocarbon but the nitrogen is harder to explain.
I've emailed the Author of this paper in the hope he will comment.
Thanks Alan Smith I hope he comments.
Should the community follow your faith rather than Rob Woudenberg objectivity ?
Cydonia , I am not asking anyone to follow anything I say, I am just trying to clarify or emphasize my earlier comment. Moreover, I agree with Rob Woudenberg that the work at NASA doesn't confirms UDD, at all.
All I say is that I speculate that the people at NASA, while interacting with Holmlid around 2009-2011, got some ideas from this interaction, probably never agreeing much with Holmlid anyway, but got some inspiration from him, and developed their own ideas from that inspiration. Nothing else. This is all answering the comment of Ahlfors that stated that their interaction had no consequences. I think it had some influence, even if tangential. But feel free to disregard this speculation at all if you don't agree.
New Paper published by Hideo Kozima:
Neutron Energy Bands in the Compound and Composite CF Materials -Speculation on the Bases of the TNCF and ND Models -+
Using a phenomenological approach by the TNCF (trapped neutron catalyzed fusion) and the ND (neutron drop) models, we have given a unified explanation of the complex features of the cold fusion phenomenon (CFP). In the phenomenological approach, the necessary and sufficient condition for the cold fusion phenomenon (CFP) has been established as the formation of the neutron energy bands in the super-lattice of host elements and the hydrogen isotopes realized by the self-organization in complexity. In this paper, the bases and applicability of the TNCF and the ND models are investigated in the CF materials with rather complicated structures in the compound (multilayered materials and materials on substrates with interfaces) and composite (alloys, ceramics and polymers) structures investigated very often recently. In the investigation we used analogy of the neutron energy bands (neutron bands) to the electron energy bands (electron bands). The neutron bands in the compound CF materials are investigated with reference to the electron bands in PN junctions. On the other hand, the neutron bands in the composite materials are investigated with reference to the characteristics of the electron bands in alloys at around symmetrical points in the Brillouin zone. The analogy between the electron bands and the neutron bands legitimates qualitatively the use of the concepts of the neutron bands for investigation of the CFP in compound and composite CF materials. In the investigation of the neutron band in alloys, we noticed two kinds of effects of 2 the minor elements to the CFP, active (or positive) elements including the 3d and 4d transition elements and inactive (negative) elements including other than those in the active ones. The former enhances the nuclear reactions in the CFP and the latter reduces them. Direct evidence of this classification was given by experimental data by Claytor et al. and indirect evidence was given by the HER (hydrogen electrode reaction) and the UPD (underpotential deposition) in the electrochemistry. This problem will be discussed extensively in another paper. It is shown that the effects of the interfaces of the CF materials on the CFP are essential to induce the nuclear reactions between the neutrons in the bands and nuclei at disordered positions generated by the thermal motion, by the statistical distribution at a finite temperature, and by the specific situation at around interfaces.

For some time I wondered whether NASA indeed may be include the existance of Ultra Dense Deuterium in their research as published lately. Looking at some numbers in their paper on 'lattice confinement fusion', they mentioned a deuterium loading of up to 1023 atoms per cm3. Combining that with the lattice constant of Erbium (355 pm), this boils down to roughly 1 deuterium atom per Erbium crystal. It is however not clear whether they based that number on calculations rather than measurements.
If I am not mistaken, the atomic distances of UDD are roughly 2.3 pm which is far less than the metal lattice constant of most metals. The 2009 paper of Holmlid, Miley and Yang talks about 1029clusters /cm3, which therefore is roughly 106 higher as indicated in recent NASA publication. B.t.w. there are versions of that paper that include and exclude Forsley as co-author.
Combining this, the suggestion that NASA is in some way confirming the possibility of UDD in their recent research is not strong.
I agree they do not confirm the UDD concept, at all, but I was addressing the idea that there was no consequence to their interaction with Holmlid, which I think influenced their work, probably much more than they would ever publish or admit.
One way BLP has been able to stay in business, is to sell the tax write-offs on their operating losses, to profitable New Jersey companies under a state sponsored program. According to the article, the tax credits sell at 88 to 94 cents on the dollar.
That would explain a lot, but still you can’t live loosing money for 20+ Years.
Recent (February 2021) Claim of replication of Ohsawa-Kushi type experiments, dubbed Metal Oxygen Fusion (MOXY), positive results based in the detection of X rays emission, and absense of it in controls. Written by a Kenneth N. Swartz from a sysRAND corporation Labs (seems to be a small, but legit company with some previous ties to defense and NASA).

Metal–Oxygen Fusion: Experimental Confirmation of an Ohsawa-Kushi Transmutation and an Exploration of Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions.
Kenneth N. Swartz
Abstract: There have been numerous low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR)experiments that produce results suggestive of nuclear fusion. These experiments stretch back from the early 1900sto the present.Significant excess amounts of heat are emitted from these reactions—greater than their electrical and chemical energy inputs. Most of these LENRs, or “new hydrogen energy”experiments, are based on electrolytic or electrical discharge plasma reactors. Results suggestive of fusion include the detection of gamma-and X-ray radiation; alpha, beta, neutron, and proton emissions; as well as helium-4. X-ray spectroscopic analysis of the metal electrodes used in LENR experiments has resulted in the discovery of new elements not originally present in the electrode metal.There are no currently accepted fusion synthesis pathways to account for the appearance of these new elements. Metal–oxygen fusion (MOXY) can explain many LENR results. At the nanoscale level, MOXY is more characteristic of fusion occurring within the degenerate matter of stellar cores. As a process, MOXY can be classified as a form of hot fusion. MOXY can help explain the fusion synthesis and decay pathways observed in LENRs.The MOXY process appears to have a greater propensity to occur when using elements with greater atomic weight, as well as with heavier isotopes of elements. Significant reductions in heavy radioactive nucleotides are observed with MOXY fusion.
In one of the most stupid sci-fi films, Independence day 2, they used a cold fusion bomp against the aliens.
You are right, I missed that one, I saw the movie but found it so utterly bad that I didn’t pay any attention after a while.
Here’s a link of how the “cold fusion” bomb depicted in that movie would work.
Has Holmlid/Norront presented any idea for capturing the energy from the annihilation-like process?
Here there’s a preliminary and speculative assessment.
And for today, last but not least, there is also a mention of “cold fusion”, albeit in a completely technically erroneous context, in the movie “Star Trek: Into the Darkness”, in the initial sequence, Mr. Spock uses a “cold fusion device” to freeze the lava of a volcano that was about to blow and end a primitive culture in a planet called “Nibiru”, in a flagrant violation of the famous “prime directive” of the series.
Perhaps some of you are familiar with the funny sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”. Cold fusion is mentioned at least in two chapters, I picked the mentions directly from watching the series (of which I grew fond through the years of after initially not liking it much), however is hard to simply retain in which chapters the mention happen in a series with close to 300 episodes.
While browsing to find the exact chapters where it happens, I realized rubycarat had already written an article about one of the mentions of Cold Fusion in the Big Bang Theory almost ten years ago, You can read the article here:
The other mention happens in the chapter called “The Jerusalem Duality” where the main character Dr. Sheldon Cooper, after being eclipsed by a younger and talented North Korean genius, and deciding that String Theory has become stagnant, is going through a personal crisis to find a new field to devote his genius intellect, much to the chagrin and annoyance of his friends.
You can read the chapter and the Cold fusion mention (he says that if all of the characters teamed up they could solve Cold Fusion in 10 years, “12 years top”).
I have thought of starting this (admittedly frivolous) thread many times but this time I think we could all use some fun and silly entertainment.
Throughout the years I have been making a mental list of movies or TV series where cold fusion or something not exactly called cold fusion but looking like cold fusion has been mentioned or portrayed, in a few cases in a central role or even as a passing remark. Here I will make that list available and, when possible, provide a link to either the entire movie or clip where the cold fusion mention happens.
Feel free to add anything if you think it belongs here. I will start with the movies where cold fusion is directly part of the main argument of the flick:
The Saint (1997): Val Kilmer interprets an international thief tasked with seducing a female researcher (portrayed by Elizabeth Sue)that has perfected cold Fusion and wants to give it free to the world.Content embedded from external sources will not be displayed without your consent.
Knight and Day: Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are lead roles in this spy romance thriller where an energy device with a nuclear power density technology that can be held in the hands, and the life of its autistic inventor, are threatened and disputed by several parties that wants to either own or or destroy it for avoiding anyone else to have it.Content embedded from external sources will not be displayed without your consent.
Came across with this video and found it interesting. There is a number of researchers that have gone into “off limits” topics and have found water to be much more than what is purported to be as a simple compound of Hydrogen and Oxygen. I have been told that, beyond the ideas of the late Dr. Masaru Emoto, Preparata has been secretively working in a lot more research around the exotic properties of water and what is called coherent domains.
This video contains a section of it devoted to depict the beliefs of the ancient Hopi of humans being a part of the hydraulic cycle in a way that suggests me that this was ancient knowledge that we are in the process of rediscovering.

Btw, udh is the most common material in the universe. Just because we cant see or measure it in many experiments due to lack of sensor technology doesnt mean its not there... its everywhere...
SindreZG , are you aware of a broadly similar claim about what Randell Mills calls Hydrinos? Sorry if this is an odd question, but I had to ask, many of us think that Mills is doing something that creates UDH but he insists in his theory and doesn't seem to see the similarity even to the cosmological level.
