Swedish scientists claim LENR explanation break-through

Essentially no new physics but a little-known physical effect describing matter’s interaction with electromagnetic fields — ponderomotive Miller forces — would explain energy release and isotopic changes in LENR. This is what Rickard Lundin and Hans Lidgren, two top level Swedish scientists, claim, describing their theory in a paper called Nuclear Spallation and Neutron Capture Induced by Ponderomotive Wave...

What to learn from an historical cold fusion conference — ICCF19

This post was originally published on Animpossibleinvention.com.   Last week, the international conference cold fusion, ICCF-19, was held, and I would argue it was historical, for several reasons. The first is the ongoing trial by Rossi's and his US partner Industrial Heat of a commercially implemented 1 MW thermal power plant based on the E-Cat.... Continue Reading →

Will LENR reach mass adoption faster than any other tech?

This post was originally posted on Animpossibleinvention.com and on E-Cat World. You often hear that new technologies spread to reach global mass adoption at an ever increasing speed -- from electricity, telephones, radio and television to PCs, mobile phones and the web. The hypothesis seems accurate and also reasonable, given that the world is getting increasingly... Continue Reading →

Time to dispel the streetlight paradox of energy

This blog post was originally posted on Animpossibleinvention.com.   The current development in LENR, where things seem to be moving fast towards confirmation of a new energy source, could finally open a way to dispel what I call the streetlight paradox of energy. It's about time. You've probably heard the joke about the drunkard who is... Continue Reading →

It seems big banks know about cold fusion

(This blog post was originally posted on Animpossibleinvention.com).   The oil price keeps falling. And most analysts seem convinced that they know the reason -- it's about supply, or demand, or Putin, or Saudi Arabia, or Syria or... But what if it were something completely different, known only by top people at the world's biggest banks. And... Continue Reading →

Replication attempts are heating up cold fusion

(This blog post was first published on Animpossibleinvention.com). In just a few weeks, the whole landscape of cold fusion and LENR has changed significantly and, as many have noted, 2015 might bring a breakthrough for LENR in general, with increased public awareness, scientific acceptance and maybe even commercial applications. This is great news. For those who haven't... Continue Reading →

New scientific report on the E-Cat shows excess heat and nuclear process

This blog post was originally published on Animpossibleinvention.com. A new scientific report on the E-Cat has been released, providing two important findings from a 32-day testrun of the reactor -- together leading to the clear conclusion that the E-Cat is an energy source based on some kind of nuclear reaction, without radiation outside the reactor....

An Impossible Invention on Amazon — second edition upcoming

(This blog post was originally published on Animpossibleinvention.com) Lots of people have asked me to make ‘An Impossible Invention’ available on Amazon in order to reach a broader audience. So I did — now there’s an e-book version in Amazon’s Kindle format listed here. The paperback version will get there later for a simple reason:... Continue Reading →

Swedish National Radio paints it black

(This blog post was originally posted on Animpossibleinvention.com) The scientific newsroom of Sveriges Radio, the national Swedish Radio, has dedicated four months of research and a whole week of its air time to the story of Andrea Rossi, the E-Cat and cold fusion (part 1, 2, 3, 4), and I’m honored that it has made me one of its main targets....

Defkalion demo proven not to be reliable

(This blog post was originally posted on Animpossibleinvention.com) The measurement setup that was used by Defkalion Green Technologies (DGT) on July 23, 2013, in order to show in live streaming that the Hyperion reactor was producing excess heat, does not measure the heat output correctly, and the error is so large that the reactor might not...

A few more researchers who were never recognized

(This blog post was originally posted on Animpossibleinvention.com) As those of you who have already read my book 'An Impossible Invention' know, it's written in memory of Martin Fleischmann (1927 – 2012), Sergio Focardi (1932 – 2013) and Sven Kullander (1936 – 2014). All these three persons were important for my work, and they all left... Continue Reading →

Here’s my book on cold fusion and the E-Cat

(This blog post was originally posted on Animpossibleinvention.com)   For three difficult years I have experienced much that I wanted to discuss, that I had thought people would want to investigate and understand better. Yet reaching out has been difficult for me. I want you, the reader, to comprehend, forgive and then participate. The term 'cold fusion' is so... Continue Reading →

Here are three good reasons to have a look at cold fusion

Ever since Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons presented their startling results in 1989, claiming that they had discovered a process that generated anomalously high amount of thermal energy, possibly through nuclear fusion at room temperature, cold fusion has been rejected by the mainstream scientific community. For anyone open to believe the contrary, here are three good reasons... Continue Reading →

Comments on Defkalion reactor demo in Milan

Yesterday I participated as an observer at the Greek-Canadian company Defkalion's demo of its LENR based energy device Hyperion in Milan, Italy. The device is just like Andrea Rossi's E-Cat, loaded with small amounts of nickel powder and pressurized with hydrogen, and supposedly produces net thermal energy through a hitherto unknown process that seems to...
