Submission + - Chief Scientist at NASA supports new energy source ( 2

dickweis writes: What if we could stop burning fossil fuels and still have all the energy we need at less cost? Dennis Bushnell, Chief Scientist at NASA Langley, reveals that NASA has been studying low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) as a propulsion source for several years. "we now have over two decades of hundreds of experiments worldwide indicating heat and transmutations with minimal radiation and low energy input. By any rational measure, this evidence indicates something real is occurring. [snip] 1% of the nickel mined on the planet each year could produce the world's energy requirements at the order of 25% the cost of coal." A 2-min video briefly describes a new LENR theory that is different from cold fusion and does not violate known physics. Is it time to start taking this stuff more seriously?
