The Triumphant Return of Cold Fusion

Huh. (Owen-ism, yup.)

if we consider the whole volume of the reactor core and the most conservative figures on energy production, we still get a value of (7.93 ± 0.8) 102 MJ/Liter that is one order of magnitude higher than any conventional source.

That from a bunch of heavy-duty science types who examined the "cold fusion" machine which was the hot topic about 15-20 years ago.

I think you missed your number of years ago by close to an order of magnitude. 1989 is 24 years ago. That notwithstanding, I would look for the extension cord because cold fusion seems to violate certain physical laws.

Time flies when you're having fun.

A pal of mine was a nuker, too, and he thought that CF was a real possibility.

The link (at the HT) goes to the source, and he links to the paper from the PhDs....

You can't trust those science-types, right daddio.

If cold fusion works, science (thermodynamics)is wrong
