Thread: Cold fusion fact or fiction?

  1. #1 Cold fusion fact or fiction? 
    Guest
    A few years ago 'cold fusion' hit the headlines, scientists reported it had been achieved, where is it now?

    I've read about this before. The energy it normally produces is nearly non-existant, but some studies have shown a random boost in energy that is still unexplained. It only continues for a few days and is insanely unreliable, so yeah.

    My stance is skeptical on it. Open-minded I suppose?

    Seems silly to think that anything is impossible anymore. Impossible today maybe. But just impossible? No way. Pigs could fly one day...

    Sure cold fusion is possible.

    I agree. As science and technology evolves, more and more "impossible" things will become possible. Why not cold fusion?

    I think some heavy atoms as of yet not synthesized in the Lab will be the means to an ends. They'll store one heavy atom in one container and it's required partner in the other and make some kind of battery. They'll still have to make the atoms which in many respects would make cold fusion redundant and only another means of temporary storage.

    plus Atom X 180 + Atom Y 196 = Atom Z 376 sounds fishy to me but......

    I'm personally heavily biased against it, so reckon there's only a slim chance for it. The mind is more 'ajar' than open..

    Here's the wiki page on Cold Fusion/LENRs:

    http://www.redtram.com/go/17843122/

    Experiments have been going on in this area since the late1920s. It is possible that there are some room temperature reactions going on within the palladium or titanium coils being used. They don't seem to happen very consistently though.

    I disagree, firstly I am NOT closed to the idea merely biased against.
    There's this thing called the nuclear strong force to be overcome, so far 10^31Kgs of hydrogen can do it or a 300Million dollar particle accelerator.
    You wanna do it in a kilner jar at 5 cents a kilo?

    Secondly, I do not generally spread my post's with profanity's when in debate.

    Thirdly, I hope that at least most of my post's are intelligible.

    true...okay the only similarity is that Zelos is sometimes highly biased. Rather than completely closed to the possibility. Haha

    using muons instant of electrons makes cold fussion possible theoretical
    I am zelos. Destroyer of planets, exterminator of life, conquerer of worlds. I have come to rule this uiniverse. And there is nothing u pathetic biengs can do to stop me

    I'm learning a lot from your posts.

    The matrix of the palladium or titanium coil is supposed to bring the deuterium atoms close enough together so that you get a very slow rate of fusion.

    Also there's indirect evidence that some sort of fusion reaction is going on in the Earths' interior. There's an overabundance of He3 around some volcanos.

    I hope that's a good thing, if it's sarcasm then challenge me!

    Learning is always a good thing.

    Even learning that you owe $23,761 to the IRS?

    Yes, because if you didn't learn it while you owe $23, 761 you'll end up owing the rest of your life.

    Come to think of it, we owe them money the rest of our life anyway...so maybe I'm wrong

    I would like to know where some research has actually been published on Cold F usion. Is the work all emprical or is it based on sound theory.[/b]
    i went to texas

    Cold fusion is, until proven and demonstrated, nothing but bunk.
