Well, I'm not up on those gluons and such, but it seems like if we could extract even a fraction of the rest energy of matter, our energy shortage would be history. E = m*c^2 gives about 2.5*10^10 kW*hr for every kilogram of matter (check my math). The devil is in the details of how to extract it, if that is even possible.

Isn't Fleischmann a butter, or margarine ? And no way, the Gluon field is not going to the deterium field for anything.

For those wondering i am not some crack pot that believes the enormous amount of rubbish that people spew out as being over unity or anything like that. I spent my time in Astrophysics but no matter what you say it is not easy to produce Gamma rays from water, sure you can produce X-Rays from a roll of sticky tape but this just doesn't fit. For Physicists to believe that they have all of the answers to the inner workings of the universe they are seriously deluded. Sure the models and the results that the researchers have provided don't fit but truthfully Copernicus didn't really fit the Ptolemeic model either. This doesn't fit our model of the universe so it is rejected without a flinch but to those that think outside the box there is a world of possibilities out there to discover. 21st Century physics is really an infant of the Universe as a whole and until we gain a greater understanding of the most fundamental world we are all in the dark.

Regardless of PERSONAL OPINIONS, there remains the fact that Neutrons just dont get up and move because they don't like their neighbours and that Helium just doesn't appear out of nowhere! Highly regarded laboratories around the world are providing some evidence that there is excess heat. (please see Thermodynamics for the morons that are to silly to realise that they can be wrong ) I believe that Galileo was wrong and so were some very great scientist in history that funnily enough we now revere and quite happily tout as the greats. No matter how we want to put it there is evidence pointing straight towards Cold fusion being somewhat of a reality. ( please see Akram's Razor and once again for the morons, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it probably is a DUCK! The truth is that no one understands the process and it will take some time for physics to meld the process into their thought processes but no matter how you want to take it something is happening that is reported to give us Helium, Stray Neutrons and Gamma Rays and all of this from good old water..... HMMMMMMMM!!!

The arguments on both sides of the cold fusion debate are nicely summarized on Alternapedia : http://en.alternapedia.org/wiki/Cold_fusion_(nuclear_energy)

I can't see where the extra neutron comes from? Helium requires 2 and deuterium only has 1 If Deuterium is morphing into Helium it looks like a 1 for 1 exchange? The only way I can possibly visualize cold fusion is; If somehow the the Gluon field is disturbed enough to to null the strong force and pop something loose from the Nucleon. This would most likely be a repulsion of Protons and not a Neutron. Deuterium would not be the, likely, medium of exchange. Now whether a Photon field is capable of performing such and act I have no idea! If it were then I suspect someone would have performed the experiment and documented it.

It is the best 1st April article, I've read this year! Just to remind to stundents who believe in all these stories. The high temperature like in the Sun one need to get two nucleus interact with each other. At room temperature the probability of such interaction is too low to be of any use. Chemical reaction has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the nuclear reaction.

This is incredible news maybe now we will take cold fusion seriously again! I have been following a company that has been working along the same lines. They are called EnergeticsTechnologies.com , 2 independent labs have replicated their results as well. Additionally, the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has analyzed the process they call SuperWave Fusion. Please check this out and let me know what you think.
