Italian Scientist Claims He Has Achieved Cold Fusion

 Italian Scientist Claims He Has Achieved Cold Fusion
topic by GetuOne - 11-07-2011, 07:42 PM - Boxden > The Faculty of Science



An Italian scientist at the University of Bologna recently announced to the world that he has successfully achieved cold fusion – a process that physics says is impossible – but if it were proven achievable it would provide the world with vast amounts of safe, cheap energy. Nuclear fusion is the process of combining, under very specific circumstances, two atomic nuclei into one heavier atomic nuclei, releasing an enormous amount of energy in the process. The scientist in question, Andrea Rossi, is being greeted by the scientific community with nothing less than skepticism — perhaps because everyone in history who has claimed to achieve the process has been proven to be unsuccessful.


Andrea Rossi calls his cold fusion machine the E-Cat machine and he claims that it fuses nickel and hydrogen nuclei at room temperature. In addition to skepticism from physicists around the world, the United States Department of Energy the U.S. Patent Office say that the basic laws of physics prove that cold fusion is impossible. Rossi claims that his machine provides just a small amount of energy for the nickel and hydrogen nuclei to fuse and in return gives off a much larger amount of energy.








The scientific community is asking Rossi to let his machine be removed from his laboratory in order to be tested by the greater physics world. To that Rossi says, “We have nothing to say, just to make plans that work properly and let those facts win against the scepticism.”

Energy experts and scientists are not mincing their words in response to Rossi’s confidence in his machine, energy consultant Jonathan Koomey told the Daily Mail, the E-Cat experiment, “Should be treated as a hoax until independent scientists are able to replicate these results.”

Outside testing will surely be done on Rossi’s machine to see if he’s achieved the impossible. If he has, it could mean great things for the world of renewable energy — and it could be the end of disasters caused by existing nuclear power plants.

why is cold fusion impossible?

are they talking impossible in terms of the energy being slowly released over a period of time???

they want to "test" it....right...you mean learn, copy, and make a profit off of it

they say its impossible but didnt another scientist find something faster then the speed of lifgt....that means everything is up for grabs in my book

It'll change everything you know. Everything that is powered, will be (could be) powered in a cheaper manner.

forreal. Besides most of these "rules" we abide by were declared by people with limited resources compared to us now and what we can test

First thing i though. The other 2 scientist back in 1989 claimed this and suddenly said they lied or some #### like that but the oil companies among others will not allow this to happen. The planet would run of water and they greedy a$ses ain't letting that happen ever. There has been energy cover ups since Tesla.

I think it may take some time but his method will b used if it is real. Nothing is impossible
