What is a cold fusion reactor?
“Cold fusion claims to release measurable energy from fusion reactions at or near room temperature when deuterium is dissolved in a solid, usually palladium metal.
What is cold fusion used for?
Cold fusion means it is economically-viable to recycle all waste, restore wilderness and waterways to pristine conditions, and keep a planetary biosphere from extinction. Hydrogen isotopes Protium, Deuterium, and Tritium.
What’s the difference between fusion and cold fusion?
Cold fusion is an attempt to get fusion to occur under less extreme conditions, possibly as a result of chemical reactions. Despite the flurry of publicity several years ago, cold fusion remains unrealized speculation for now. Cold fusion, if it worked, would be a form of nuclear fusion.
Who uses cold fusion?
ColdFusion is used by the Social Security Administration, the Food and Drug Administration, The Kennedy Center, the State Department, and the Fortune 100 websites listed below. More than 300,000 developers at over 10,000 companies worldwide rely on ColdFusion to quickly build and deploy powerful web applications.
What happened to cold fusion?
This in turn spawned bitter accusations that hot-fusion physicists and particle physicists were out to get the cold-fusion community. The University of Utah continued to press forward with a cold-fusion research institute, but that lab was eventually disbanded in 1991 when it failed to replicate the earlier results.
Why does cold fusion not work?
The most obvious objection has to do with temperature. According to physics, fusion can’t happen at temperatures lower than a few millions of degrees Fahrenheit. That is because protons are positively charged and repel each other. Bringing them close together in order to fuse them makes the repulsion forces stronger.
Are Rossi’s reactor devices really ready for the market?
On January 31, 2019, Rossi’s company issued a video demonstration and claimed the devices were now ready for the market (see sidebar “Rossi’s Latest Reactor ‘Revealed’ in January Video,” bottom of article). Who could possibly fall for this claim?
What happened to Rossi’s cold fusion plant in Greece?
This one cold fusion plant was apparently sold and resold several times as investment deals went sour. The Greek company Defkalion at first licensed Rossi’s technology following the demonstration in October 2010. They set up test labs and production facilities in Greece (as evidenced in glossy brochures).
What is cold fusion?
Cold fusion is now more frequently called Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). In anticipation of its thirtieth anniversary this spring, cold fusion was recently described and recounted in these pages (Ball 2019). Rossi used his time in jail to study this topic and decided this would be his next project.
Is Rossi’s E-Cat linked to Fleischmann?
There is a link between Rossi’s E-Cat and the 1989 Fleischmann and Pons cold fusion claims (SI, January/February 2019). When Fleischmann died in 2012, unshakable supporters rallied to fund a Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project. They attempted to replicate Rossi’s E-Cat results.
