    Not real-I am with Jed- where do you get that 100M figure? The largest expenditure I have seen is the F&P lab in France supported by Toyota /IMRA was only $40M. And they did get "replications of the effect" even to the…

    Arata is no longer active. He is in very poor health. But anyway, he has been famous since the 1940s with a long list of patents, awards from the previous and present Emperor, etc. As he says, "the Shinkansen trains…

    not sure that replications by MFMP would be "worth much" for getting people back into the field. It will likely take a national lab .... or two.

    I think it is established. The problem is that the levels and "COP" are not at levels that make it easy to produce at will and it is very far from being commercially viable. Sometimes I doubt that it will ever be at…

    One classical example of difficulty in replicating is the early work of Wu when she claimed violation of parity in her Cobalt 60 experiment. It took people a while to learn the correct preparation of the highly polarized Co samples at low temps. Most…

    Or it's all just a bunch of garbage that even Rossi knows will never be granted any patents, or he is too cheap to file non-provisionals (at thousands each in attorney and PTO fees). I would bet on the former, and the latter is just…

    Plus, I have offered several specific reasons why I think Shanahan is wrong. No one has addressed them as far as I know. The main ones are:

    1. Researchers have often moved the location of the heat in the cell from one location…

    Everyone who did cold fusion started out as a 3rd party expert. None of them believed it was possible until they tried it and confirmed it. That's what they told me, anyway.

    If you feel so strongly about it, just post your papers here. End of story.

    I am not even a researcher and they usually tell me whatever I want to know.

    I doubt there are any classified projects. If there were, I would not hear about them when they are underway, but I think eventually news…

    In most cases, one researcher just has to pick up the phone and call another to find out what is happening.- often in real time. There never seemed to be any "classified research" going on. Most of the "closed mouths" about research were not from…

    I agree. I guess it depends on what you call "large" but anyway, I would prefer a reactor that produces 1 to 100 W. Compared to a kilowatt reactor that is easier to measure, and safer.

    It is difficult to do calorimetry with a…

    I always it was strange that Rossi claimed that IH didn't have the money to pay him and then turned around and sued them for the money.
    Strange logic.

    I wasn't aware that you are familiar with the laws of all of the states in the US, as well as Puerto Rico, Guam, etc. The ability of a average, non-police powered person to arrest another person is actually fairly…

    Aalso notice that AEG was omitted from the settlement. I think they could still bring charges against Rossi. Not sure it would be useful for them though since Rossi doesn't have enough left (likely) to be worth their legal fees. Perhaps all they…
