1912-1962 general relativity, discovery of DNA, yada yada
1963-2013 quantum chromodynamics, I grant you that... and supersymmetry or some such shit, various biotech engineering feats working out the details
There does seem to be a trend towards application of established theories (essentially an engineering exercise) as opposed to new fundamental discoveries.
2008 - grim... looked like my employer (small startup) was about to fold, was picked up for a dime by a billion-dollar company
2012 - fixing up my first house (bought last year at age 40 cash-only). Still w/ the same company that acquired the startup. Daughter and wife are healthy and happy.
1972 -> 2008 worse
2008 -> 2012 better
1972 -> 2012 about the same
Anomalous Heat Evolution Effect is repeatable by the nano-metal-D(H)-gas loading method
High energy density (>800eV/Ni-atom) power lasting several weeks or more, with negligible radiations (to be confirmed by scale-up exp.)
There have been many unverified/unrepeatable claims, but this seems very credible. What are the ramifications of eventual commercialization of energy production from Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR)?"
