DailyTech - Navy Heats Up Cold Fusion Hopes

a recently published academic paper from the Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWAR) in San Diego throws cold water on skeptics of cold fusion. Appearing in the respected journal Naturwissenschaften, which counts Albert Einstein among its distinguished authors, the article claims that Spawar scientists Stanislaw Szpak and Pamela Mosier-Boss have achieved a low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) that can be replicated and verified by the scientific community.

For those uber nerds (aka me and a few others), this is interesting stuff. :)

Lets put it this way it would practically solve the fossil fuel problem if i'm not mistaken and also help against global warming in a sense (no CO2 emmisions)

Umm....can someone please explain a little bit more on what Cold Fusion is. It sounds pretty interesting.

Fusion works--generally speaking--by squishing two atoms together: they combine and toss off a subatomic particle or two. This gives off energy, and the resulting (heavier) nuclei can continue to combine with other, with similar results. Same process that powers stars and hydrogen bombs.

Problem is, nobody's figured out how to control fusion: man-made reactions tend to result in thermonuclear explosions. Good for levelling cities, bad for making electricity.

The idea beind cold fusion is to initiate a low-yield fusion reaction that would provide enough energy to be useful, but not so much as to kill the peopel generating it (or wanting to use it).

Now if there are no objections, I'm going to raise a pint in the hopes that this time something useful comes of it!

Well, the electric car isn't exactly at it's peak in popularity and efficiency. As for the cold fusion, I sure hope it's true!
