Cold fusion has been called one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs that might likely never happen. On the surface, it seems simple a room-temperature reaction occurring under normal pressure. But it is a nuclear reaction, and figuring it out and getting it to work has not been simple, and any success in this area could ultimately and seriously change the world. Despite various claims of victory over the years since 1920, none have been able to be replicated consistently and reliably.
But theres buzz this week of a cold fusion experiment that has been replicated, twice. The tests have reportedly produced excess heat with roughly 10,000 times the energy density and 1,000 times the power density of gasoline.
But they also they they dont have total confidence in the paper. It is unfortunate that there are some justified concerns about the independence of the test team, since many of the authors are names that we have seen before in the context of Rossi. Plus, they are disappointed that none of the authors of the Levi and Foschi paper are willing to present their findings at an upcoming conference.
They also have several other technical questions and criticisms, as do many others.

The Cold Fusion/LENR Ping List
I am holding out for the designer colors...
Pronounced Jig-a-watts. “1.21 Giggawatts.”
When it comes to energy production there’s no free lunch.
Yep, hence the two “g”s in Giggawatt.
That pretty much tells us the quality (or lack thereof) of the paper.
The real test is if the contraption could perk water hot enough for a pot of coffee .... Mr. Cold Fusion Hot Coffee Maker .... a lot of possibility there!!!!!
