Which Nobel laureates gave speeches in support of cold fusion?
Are any federal agencies involved in cold fusion research?
Who did reproduce the Fleischmann-Pons Effect (FPE) early on, and just where in the world were positive results generated?
When you need a couple of quick facts showing cold fusion is not only real, but nearing commercial potential, the 2013 History of Cold Fusion Calendar can be your source for evidence!
It’s chocked full of historical facts that answer questions like ‘what physicist and famous science fiction author called “ignoring cold fusion one of the greatest scandals in scientific history”?’.
The 12-month wall hanging objet d’art et l’utilité used as a base the timeline published in Eugene Mallove‘s March/April 1999 Infinite Energy Magazine issue #24 commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the announcement of Drs. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons‘ discovery of fusion-sized energy from water in a test-tube.
The IE published timeline itself was an update on previously published timelines in F. David Peat‘s Cold Fusion: The Making of A Scientific Controversy and Hal Fox‘s Cold Fusion Impact in the Enhanced Energy Age. The timeline in Tadahiko Mizuno‘s Nuclear Transmutations The Reality of Cold Fusion was also noted. Other sources were Edmund Storms‘ The Science of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction and early Infinite Energy issues.
The discovery of ultra-clean energy-dense power from the hydrogen in water languished amid mainstream hostility towards the experimental facts. While many of the smart, capable people who tried the experiment in 1989 saw nothing, there were plenty of positive results, and this calendar highlights those achievements. This calendar does not trace the many theoretical models that scientists are still formulating, but focuses on the early experimental data that showed anomalous effects.
It is not a complete “History” per se. All dates in previously published timelines were not used. Many events have exact dates, but too many events on one day forced some dates to be “thereabouts”. In future editions, we would like to rotate through all names and events with a different theme each year.
Who around the world continues to probe this Rumpelstiltskin-reaction, now called low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), lattice-assisted nuclear reactions (LANR), the anomalous heat effect, or quantum fusion?
And what companies are attempting to commercialize an ultra-clean next-generation nuclear power?
The 2013 History of Cold Fusion Calendar can provide a few answers, as well as be a resource for those conversations that turn to repeating twenty-year-old manufactured myth as fact.
This calendar can be sent to schools, colleges and universities, chemistry, physics, and engineering departments, policy makers, investors, environmental groups, friends and family for education and awareness. Why even detractors could benefit!
Long-time cold fusioneers, LENRites, LANRists, Qua-Fus, and those who are just plain Anomalous will enjoy feasting upon the lavish photos of laboratory set-ups and cold fusion experimental apparatus. The early images from India and China are no less-then art, and portraits of researchers show the humanity behind the metal.
I hope the CMNS community will support this effort to educate and entertain. Log in your big days, keep track of what’s missing, to be collected into the spreadsheet of dates that will form the core data of a complete historical record which can be accessible through a super-cool digital 3D-holographic interactive timeline that has EVERYTHING!
I had never made a calendar before, let alone one that had science papers instead of holidays. I acted fast. (Who wants a calendar in March?) I am particularly grateful to Peter Gluck and Christy Frazier for kindly tolerating a quick last minute bid for dates and photos. Steve Featherstone generously donated his photos. A huge thank you to the scientists who graciously responded to my photo and date requests. I hope you are all happy with the result.
I look forward to your feedback. We have a whole year to put together the 2014 version, and it will be even better.
All proceeds will go to Cold Fusion Now and the New Energy Foundation to further clean energy advocacy and the direct financial support of cold fusion research.
