LENR has captured the imagination and curiosity of the world and a new documentary recalls the initial cold fusion findings at the University of Utah in 1989 by scientists Stanley Pons and Martin Fleishmann. Twenty three years later,there is still no universal validation and we are left wondering how their bittersweet discovery will shape the future of mankind.
Rumors swirling in the past week about Andrea Rossi’s Ecat are focusing on two major issues: 1) the lack of widespread scientific acceptance of the LENR phenomenon, and 2) Rossi’s unverifiable claims his excess energy production is a byproduct of a working LENR system.
Another European company is moving forward with it’s own LENR reactor it has named Hyperion. Rossi severed ties with this same Greek technology firm, Defkalion Green Technologies, last year after a falling out between the two parties. Since then, Defkalion has openly boasted its reactor will far surpass in power density and output the 1 MW unit that Andrea Rossi is marketing. Like Rossi, Defkalion is looking at commercial availability in late 2012 following approval of product licensing.
Defkalion has even issued a release it will allow third parties to evaluate its core technology: a multi stage LENR reaction between Nickel and Hydrogen.
In a never before released video, posted below, Defkalion shares some grainy testing taking place on one of its bare reactors.
Over the last several years, there have been many reports around the world about important multiple successes with what is popularly known as “Cold Fusion”, or more properly what is now known as “Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions” (LENR). The latest was from January 31, 2012 at M.I.T. in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Professors Peter L. Hagelstein and Mitchell Swartz gave a symposium and short class where a successful 2-day LANL / LENR/ Cold Fusion experiment was done publicly that produced at least 10 times the energy out, than was used.
