Stanley Pons, co-discoverer of cold fusion, left the United States in 1991 amidst an unprecedented assault. Physicists wedded to the 100-year-old standard model of nuclear theory, and whose funding would be jeopardized by this seemingly simpler approach to energy production, ‘threw tantrums’ and attacked with vehemence. Steven E. Koonin, who left Caltech Institute to work … Continue reading Stanley Pons’ Preface from J.P. Biberian’s La Fusion dans Tous ses États translated

Original article on Atom-Ecology here. Cold fusion is a technology that has arrived in practical form, and that practical form is simple district heat. It’s strange that so many people think of energy only as electricity to power devices or petrol to fuel a vehicle.

Musicians, crafts people, campers, the homeless, sight-seers and tourists, families, soon-to-be-Hollywood stars, and artists galore line the Walk which, for me, begins at Muscle Beach and ends … Continue reading Martin Fleischmann in 10 minutes
