The saga of the cold fusion energy reactors continues with our heroes, the researchers, battling the coulomb barrier, COP performance, bureaucratic barriers and pseudo-Skeptic criticisms. Who will triumph? Will the technical barriers be too much to overcome? Will the bureaucrat and Skeptics barriers stop the progress? Or will the researchers triumph and deliver the most incredible invention ever – a safe, cheap and abundant energy device!
It was very reassuring to listen to Robert Duncan, University of Missouri, vice chancellor for research, in the 60 Minutes broadcast on April 24, 2009. He continues to give solid support for the CF/LENR research. If you missed that fascinating broadcast, see:
Hot Fusion scientists mention the ‘Coulomb barrier*’ as an argument against the possibility of cold fusion at room temperature. We hear so much about the environments of the Sun and Stars and how the extreme temperatures and pressures there are necessary for the fusion of atomic particles to occur. The assumption is that there cannot be any fusion of elements here on Earth, without the million degrees temperature and extreme pressures found on the Sun.
My first efforts to contribute something to the defense of this country started in 1943. It was a time of great turmoil and conflict – World War II was raging and many people were dying. My Dad was in the United States Navy and Mom’s three brothers were fighting with the Army. I was collecting tin cans for the war effort, mom would remove the top and bottom with a can opener, then I would smash the cans with my little foot and place them in a box for the collection truck. That was a long time ago.

Energy is the most fundamental requirement for Modern Living and Industrial Progress. When a nation is able to obtain chemical or nuclear energy and convert that to electricity, all the comforts of modern living are available. When there is abundant electrical energy, industrial applications soon follow. There is a definite correlation between the energy consumption and income of a nation. If estimates are correct, the new Cold Fusion/LENR Reactors will soon be supplying low cost, safe, and abundant energy.

Most of us have had a long-term love affair with an automobile. Perhaps we picked up out date in a car in our high-school days? Or maybe some were into high performance or custom cars? Those were the good old days and we miss them. Modern cars are getting smaller and look so boxy. There is nothing more beautiful, on four wheels, than a sports car like the one in this page.
January 12, 2012, Independent e-Cat News released a video from NASA, announcing the incredible news that LENR is real and NASA is working with this new energy source. In the video, they describe a ‘neutron capture’ event that releases an incredible amount of energy! Neutron Capture is a nuclear event and “Cold Fusion” is still a respectable name for this process. NASA says there is no radiation or hazardous waste as a result of this “Low Energy Nuclear Reaction” process.
Sylvester H. Roper of Roxbury Massachusetts was an inventor of many mechanical devices, including steam powered automobiles and motorcycles. The Roper steam velocipede of 1867 – 1869 was an incredible invention. It has yet to be determined whether the Roper or the Michaux-Perruaux was the world’s first motorcycle?
At this time in history there is a great opportunity to be the first to build a Cold-Fusion/LENR motorcycle! This would be your chance to show how clever you are and get the fame and recognition for this achievement. If you hurry, you could also be the first to apply the heat energy of the E-Cat Reactor for a transportation vehicle. First, you need to get in line to purchase one of the first small E-Cat Reactors.
It all began with Thomas Edison and his 1882 Pearl Street Station – the world’s first commercial power plant. It was a combined heat and power plant, which produced electricity and heat for area buildings. His duel-purpose power plant achieved 50% efficiency.
In the 1990s, there were regulations to promote rural electrification by construction of centralized power plants, managed by regional utilities. These regulations discouraged local power generation (cogeneration). According to Sean Casten, Recycled Energy Development CEO, “The established regulations went as far as to make it illegal for non-utilities to sell power”. By 1978, Congress recognized that efficiency at central power plants had stagnated and established “Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA)” to encourage utilities to buy power from independent power producers.
The Rossi Energy Catalyzer (E-Cat) reactor produces lots of heat as a bi-product of some nuclear process, possibly fusion of hydrogen with nickel (H-Ni) reaction. A stream of water flows through the reactor core to capture and store that heat. The heat converts the water to steam. The hot water and/or steam is then used for heating processes in industry or homes. The heat-to-steam process is fairly efficient and useful.
It all started as an attempt to change base metals into precious metals – lead into gold! These were the ‘Alchemists’ who were the precursors to modern chemists. Their terminology, procedures, and some equipment, are still in use today. However, their attempts at ‘Nuclear Transmutation’ (changing base elements) failed. That was a long time ago.
