The test was done in an independent laboratory and Rossi wasn't present. Please read the report first. Then you can comment on it, but not before. Also, you should check the thousands of peer reviewed papers that without any doubt reveal that LENR/Cold Fusion is real. Check: http://lenr-canr.org/

+ - Andrea Rossi's E-Cat Fusion Reactor "Verified" by "Reputable" Researchers

Submitted by Bulldozer2003
Bulldozer2003 (824009) writes "A team of Italian and Swedish scientists observed an operating E-Cat reactor over a 32-day period. In their report they determined that the device was outputting energy at a scale greater than any known chemical reactions could have released. They also were able to measure the isotopes of nickel in the device before and after, finding the "natural" ratio of Ni 58 to 60 having been almost completely replaced by Ni 62.

Any nuclear scientists out there that can comment on the report in better detail? This most recent observation of the E-Cat answers some of the criticisms I've personally had with researchers not being allowed physical access to the E-Cat before and after running it.

ExtremeTech also offers a summary of the report."

+ - NASA Langley Study On Cold Fusion's Potential in Aviation->

Submitted by Baldrson
Baldrson (78598) writes "Perpetually in-flight "skytrains" with which smaller aircraft would temporarily dock to exchange passengers and cargo, ground-effect flying container ships ala the Hughes Spruce Goose (only bigger and not made of spruce) and vertical takeoff and landing supersonic business jets were among among the aircraft potentials of cold fusion technology presented at NASA Langley's ARMD Seedling Seminar, February 25, 2014 in a study titled "Low Energy Nuclear Reaction Aircraft" (Warning: Adobe Connect). One comment heard: "There is a similar initiative in Lockheed/Martin.""

+ - Independent Academic Validation of Industrially Useful Cold Fusion Device 2

Submitted by Baldrson
Baldrson (78598) writes "An energy revolution has been reported in a joint paper by scientists from Bologna University, Uppsala University and Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, titled "Indication of anomalous heat energy production in a reactor device containing hydrogen loaded nickel powder." This is the long-awaited independent validation of the infamous "E-Cat" or "Energy Catalyzer" by controversial inventor Andrea Rossi. Quoting the paper: "Even by the most conservative assumptions as to the errors in the measurements, the result is still one order of magnitude greater than conventional energy sources.""

+ - The Looming Energy Revolution: Low Energy Nuclear ->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "An energy revolution that promises decentralized generated, cheap, totally clean and unlimited energy could be happening right now and can take the world by surprise given the limited mainstream media coverage of the phenomenon... or... censorship??. Each day that passes scientific organizations validate the LENR technology and different entrepreneurs claim to be ready for marketing groundbreaking products based on that technology."
