    I agree, we need people to replicate the effect. Unfortunately, this is not easy to do. I was able to do this only because I could design and make the required apparatus. Thanks to several wise individuals, I had the money to buy the parts. Cold fusion makes heat, which requires a sensitive calorimeter that costs in excess of $25,000 even when it is self-made. Helium and tritium are even more difficult and expensive to detect. Radiation detection requires special skill because it can be detected mainly within the apparatus. Now energetic electron emission is found to occur. Unfortunately, its relationship to cold fusion is not agreed upon so that it cannot be used to demonstrate fusion as the cause. What is worse, each proposed model identifies different behaviors as proof that fusion occurs. Consequently, a person does not even know what to measure in order to prove that anything special is happening. People like THH will always find a reason to reject any claimed replication.

    Thanks, I didn't know it cost that much. I would venture to guess few in the public do, nor appreciate what it takes in terms of skill, and time to attempt replication. Makes me appreciate even more that we now have the DOE/ARPA-E, NASA/USNavy -both of which have been at this as long as you, new-comers USArmy/AirForce labs, EU (CleanHME/HERMES), and the Japanese government (NEDO) funding some sophisticated LENR efforts with access to state-of-the art equipment.


    I'm curious; if you have read their most recent work as presented at ICCF24/25, which, if any, do you think is on the right track?

    This is a video we missed that came out 9 months ago. Any former, or present Rossi fan would already know the story of Ian Bryce, Dick Smith, Rossi, and the ground/earth wire trick, but here Bryce fills in many details not available before. Very interesting...even for those new to LENR. In it, Ian Bryce recounts his efforts to uncover how Rossi fooled a lot of very smart scientists. Thanks go to David Nygren for finding:

    Just so no one gets confused: The Ranga Dias superconductor fraud story is separate from the South Korean team reporting room temp conductivity. While there is still controversy over their findings, there have been no accusations of fraud as with Dias. In fact, they have been partially replicated, and hosted a news conference this month to say they still back their initial claims.

    Thanks David for the Fusion Energy video. Yoshino (CP CEO) had his work cut out for him representing LENR alongside Andrew Holland, CEO of The Fusion Energy Association, and I think he did a very nice job of it. Just being on the same stage with Holland was a win of sorts for us, but he also held his own on the merits IMO. Hopefully that added to our credibility with the audience, who, judging by the Q&A, were a very sophisticated group.


    Yoshino made a nice counter to Holland talking of the billions being funded to Magnetic/Plasma Fusion research, by pointing out LENR has much more modest needs due to its low temps, no radiation, and compact size. When answering to timelines, Yoshino said "in a few years" as he is "talking with them" which I assume is Miura, to make a 100KW boiler, composed of 10 30cm x 60cm modules, followed later by a 600kw.


    Yoshino also mentioned CP's 82 patents, with 200 applications pending. All the questions in the Q&A were for Holland though.

    Anomalous heat generation that cannot be explained by known chemical reactions produced by nano-structured multilayer metal composites and hydrogen gas by Yasuhiro Iwamura, Takehiko Itoh, Shinobu Yamauchi, and Tomonori Takahashi has been published in the Japanese Journal of Applied Physics here: https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.35848/1347-4065/ad2622

    From the Abstract: "Anomalously large heat generation phenomena that cannot be explained by any known chemical processes were discovered: Ni-based nano-structured multilayer metal composites were preloaded with hydrogen gas and heated rapidly to diffuse hydrogen and trigger the heat generation reaction. Maximum energy released per total hydrogen absorption was over 10 keV H–1 and no gamma rays or neutrons, which are harmful to the human body, were observed. It is possible to intentionally induce the heat burst phenomenon, which can increase the amount of heat generated without any new energy input. This can be applied to reaction control as well as to improving the accuracy of heat generation evaluation. A common feature, that regions of very high oxygen concentrations are observed in places, was observed in the heat-producing samples. At this time, however, the discussion of this oxygen concentration as nuclear in origin must exclude the possibility of many chemical processes."
    Assessing the Feasibility of Lattice Confinement Fusion for a Deep Space Propulsion System by Taylor Hampson has been published in the Advanced Concepts in Electric Propulsion Session here: https://doi.org/10.2514/6.2024-2703

    From the Abstract: "In this work, the application of Lattice Confinement Fusion (LCF) for deep space propulsion is explored through two distinct approaches: direct thrust generation (LCFP) and power generation for electric propulsion (LCFEP). LCF is a novel fusion technique investigated by NASA Glenn Research Center and involves confining deuterons within a metal lattice and initiating Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENRs). Two methods of initiating LCF were considered, one involving the co-deposition of palladium in an electrochemical cell and the other involving bremsstrahlung gamma irradiation of a deuterated erbium lattice. Experimental data from both systems were gathered to estimate propulsion performance parameters and approximate power generation to assess the feasibility of applying LCF to a deep space propulsion system. LCF can produce high-energy exhaust particles with specific impulse exceeding 10^6 s. However, this first-order assessment suggests LCF's infeasibility for the applications proposed due to the low thrust and power generated. Nonetheless, additional fast-fission LCF applications that warrant future work are identified."
    Justifying the Possibility of Getting Excess Heat by Jean-Francois Geneste has been published on ResearchGate here.

    Excerpt rom the Abstract: "...The main problem remains to work out a theory which would give clues of what to achieve in order to get this reproducibility. The paper presented here aims at proposing a breakthrough theory explaining both what to do and why it was so difficult until now to get the targeted reproducibility."

    Origins of the Meissner Effect and Superconductivity by John P. Wallace and Michael J. Wallace has been published at viXra here: [.pdf]

    Excerpt from the Abstract: "Superconductivity in most metals is due to the activity of longitudinal spin waves binding electrons into pairs in such a way that the Meissner effect is generated along with the angular momentum responses in static magnetic fields. The bulk of these spin waves appear to be sourced by nuclear spins on the lattice. Experimentally longitudinal spin waves are not difficult to detect at room temperature as they form Bose-Einstein condensates that have onset temperatures, > 1000K, for the low mass entities, less than 10−40kg. These large scale quantum structures on the order of 1 meter are ubiquitous in metals and will also exist in space with low density matter where the ambient static magnetic fields are weak and temperatures are low."

    Where is there strong and enduring bipartisan support? Nuclear Energy by Valerie Gardner, Managing Partner Nucleation Capital is posted here.
    Excerpt: "Despite historic levels of strife and discord between the parties [in the US], and decades of Democratic opposition to nuclear power, on February 24, 2024, the House passed HR 654 4 – The Atomic Energy Advancement Act - by the overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 365 to 36. This bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan (SC) and Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette (CO), aims to cause the NRC to accelerate the review and approval of new nuclear designs by requiring that they factor in against the risks of not increasing sources of clean energy. Given that people demand firm power and this results in fossil fuels being burned, the risks posed by not providing a clean, firm alternative through nuclear are clear." Read the article here.

    What is the sixth mass extinction and what can we do about it?  
    "A mass extinction is a short period of geological time in which a high percentage of biodiversity, or distinct speciesbacteria, fungi, plants, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebratesdies out. In this definition, it’s important to note that, in geological time, a ‘short’ period can span thousands or even millions of years. The planet has experienced five previous mass extinction events, the last one occurring 65.5 million years ago which wiped out the dinosaurs from existence. Experts now believe we’re in the midst of a sixth mass extinction." Read more at the World Wildlife Fund here.

    Duncan TTU:

    .... "Attempts have been made to replicate the results of Steinetz, et al.

    Our initial tritium level measurements are well explained by D(n,g)T alone

    We do not yet see evidence of Steinetz, et al.’s results" ...

    Do you have a date on this? In Sept 2023 you also posted this RE: NASA’s Lattice Confined Fusion (LCF) about a failed attempt by TTU (Duncan's team) to replicate NASA's LCF, and curious if your post today is something new.

    As said the old guard had enough connections to secure all money and thus you will never get any info as the old guard has no clue of CF. Of course they understand how to set up experiments, same as my wive that knows to cook a Chinese or Japanese meal.

    Perhaps you could set an example for CleanHME to follow, and release your data? It has been quite a few years now.


    And here is their team: Team members – CleanHME I see some of the old guard, but many new (some young looking) faces. Judging by their progress report teppo linked to, I would say the combination of old and new is paying off. Those are very strong words they have to say -as THHuxleynew reminds us, and I doubt they would say such things if they didn't have the results to prove it.

    VHS Tape Digitization Project
    The ISCMNS is conducting an archival project to preserve historically relevant video recordings related to the field of CMNS and the discovery of the Fleischmann-Pons Effect. As part of this effort, we are collecting VHS tapes and digitizing them. These files will be preserved safely in long-term storage using cloud storage services and uploaded to YouTube to make them available to the community at large.

    Many in the first donated collection of videos, from Mel Miles, are newscasts by the mainstream media (CBS, NBC, ABC, etc.) both from the time of the announcement and periodically in the years since. Another large group comes from International Conferences on Cold Fusion (ICCFs) and other conferences, such as the CMNS sessions at the American Chemical Society and American Physical Society. This group includes the International Workshop on Anomalies in Hydrogen/Deuterium Loaded Metals conferences organized by Bill Collis, co-founder of the ISCMNS.

    Other tapes in various categories have also been obtained, including past interviews with Martin Fleischmann, Stanley Pons, and other prominent members in the CMNS field. An initial release of seven videos may be viewed at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/@ISCMNS/featured

    Gratitude is expressed to Dr. Melvin Miles and Dr.Tom Passell for making their VHS tape collections available to the project. The legacy tapes project is being conducted jointly by Thomas Grimshaw and Rob Christian in their respective roles as ISCMNS Archivist and Media Specialist. Seamus Lonergan and Diadon Acs are also contributing to this project by authoring video summaries.

    In addition to the legacy media, Rob Christian is also leading an initiative to film all new interviews with prominent members of the LENR field, starting with Dr. Edmund Storms and Dr. Melvin Miles. These interviews will also be released to the new ISCMNS YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/@ISCMNS/featured

The new energy source could be used both as a small mobile system and, alternatively, as a stand-alone heat and electricity generator. If the research is successful, the proposed solutions may be a breakthrough for the energy industry and will be of great importance for the so-called emission-free technologies, contributing to climate and natural environment protection."

    Nucleation Capital posted an essay by Valerie Gardner on The A,B, and especially C's of ESG Investing. [visit] Quote:
    "ESG has emerged to identify, elevate and reward companies which invest in doing what is right, even if such actions reduce returns in the short-term. It is intended to broaden the metrics on which corporations report information, so investors can make better informed decisions and invest in companies taking ethical actions, treating employees, suppliers and their communities fairly and protecting the environment—much of which costs more but which can reduce risks and other future costs, including litigation, public opposition or climate impacts."

    The author adds "Critically, there’s a significant dichotomy between what people commonly think ESG is supposed to indicate and what it actually indicates." Read the analysis here.

    • While some migratory species listed under CMS are improving, nearly half (44 per cent) are showing population declines.
    • More than one-in-five (22 per cent) of CMS-listed species are threatened with extinction.
    • Nearly all (97 per cent) of CMS-listed fish are threatened with extinction.
    • The extinction risk is growing for migratory species globally, including those not listed under CMS.
    • Half (51 per cent) of Key Biodiversity Areas identified as important for CMS-listed migratory animals do not have protected status, and 58 per cent of the monitored sites recognized as being important for CMS-listed species are experiencing unsustainable levels of human-caused pressure.
    • The two greatest threats to both CMS-listed and all migratory species are overexploitation and habitat loss due to human activity. Three out of four CMS-listed species are impacted by habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation, and seven out of ten CMS-listed species are impacted by overexploitation (including intentional taking as well as incidental capture).
    • Climate change, pollution and invasive species are also having profound impacts on migratory species.
    • Globally, 399 migratory species that are threatened or near threatened with extinction are not currently listed under CMS.
