Ruby Carat from ColdFusionNow.org did a wonderful job of reporting from the ICCF-18 in Missouri.
Michael McKubre was asked to speak specifically on what will move this forward. He says two things necessary to move this science forward are, a need, and an independently-minded nation.
Who fits the bill? Italy.
“Italy is performing very well in this area,” says McKubre. “The next conference will be held in Venice, a rich city. Why is Venice a rich city? It is the industrial center of the region and it’s on the backs of industry that this field will move forward.”
According to the event page at Livestream.com, the broadcast will begin at 6:00 a.m. EDT on Monday July 22 and run until 9:00 a.m. EDT. Following is the detailed event description from Livestream.com, translated by Google:
“Live from the labs Defkalion Europe, in Milan, is set up what is perhaps the most advanced experiment of cold fusion. Cold fusion has long been the center of controversy, large differences, suspicions, supporters and accusers who, in no uncertain terms, speak of scam. The substance would be very simple: with cold fusion we are in the presence of an energy source with essentially unlimited and low costs. If this new energy source was available on the market, as announced at the Defkalion Europe, it would change the global energy scenarios. In the course of this meeting, organized by Defkalion Europe, in cooperation with TRIWU ‘and Moebius, the transmission of Radio Science 24, Il Sole 24 Ore, it can be seen working the “machine” that through a process of LENR, Low energy Nuclear Reaction produces energy. The reactor has never been seen before to the general public. Federico Pedrocchi Moebius, Maurizio Melis (also known as the host of Mr. Kilowatt Radio 24), with the help of technical Defkalion Europe and other guests, will describe the “machine” in its various components, and tell how the process works – or should work, telling the voices of those who cry all’imbroglio. One thing is certain: the appointment is of great interest to the world of scientific research and industrial development. If it works, the energy revolution of cold fusion will change the daily lives of everyone.”
The Columbia Daily Tribune, the hometown newspaper of the University of Missouri features an article by Karin Spory on the the upcoming International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF-18) which will take place at the University starting on July 21, 2013.
“The fact that we’re seeing something here that we don’t understand — I see it as a huge opportunity for basic physics research to try to understand why we don’t understand it,” said Robert Duncan, vice chancellor of research at MU and co-chairman of the upcoming conference.
Duncan said the conference has grown as a result of people continuing to work to explain the mysterious form of excess heat. He said although the conference will feature companies looking to make reactors that will produce energy from the basic understanding of LENR, for now MU’s researchers will continue to investigate just how this energy forms.
Rumors swirl around Defkalion Green Technologies to stream a live demo from Milan, Italy on July 22 during the conference.
