What’s the melting point of nickel? (You’ll know on June 17)

Follow a special narrative of Tadahiko Mizuno‘s 1989 massive “heat-after-death” event, as he fills bucket after bucket of water around the cell that won’t quit, and it mysteriously steams away!

Last year’s 2013 calendar was a huge success, and presented the field of cold fusion to newbies with prestige. Order a bunch to send to policy-makers and news media. They won’t be able to ignore the technology for long!

Send a few to your local schools, and encourage students to experiment with their teachers. They’ll be in good company with one high-school that has an inter-disciplinary program and working cells right now! (See September!)

Order now, and they’ll be ready just in time for the holidays to give the techies in your family the gift of a lifetime!

All proceeds go to support Cold Fusion Now and the New Energy Foundation, serving the new energy community with education, advocacy, and funding.

On the way to San Jose

Cold Fusion Now is en route to the San Jose Film Festival screening of The Believers, a new cold fusion documentary from 137 Films.

The 80-minute sample of cold fusion history focuses on the aftermath of the March 23, 1989 announcement of cold fusion by Drs. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons. Video of Martin Fleischmann in declining health makes for an emotionally-tough portrait.

Cold Fusion Now will offer free goodies to patrons after the Friday night show as antidote to anguish.

But there’s plenty of sunshine to spread all the way to San Jose.

I made a stop at my favorite Spaceport in Mojave and dropped off History of Cold Fusion Calendars to rocket scientists.

Voyager-Bulletin-Board-124331Voyager Restaurant got the first visit.

I posted up a calendar on their bulletin board for all the spaceship engineers to see at lunch.

It was a crowded spot, but you can sure see it, and plenty of people pass by on their way to the restaurant overlooking the runway.

Scaled-X-Prize-125700Rolling over to Scaled Composites, I dropped off a handful of calendars for the designers of SpaceShipOne and Two.

The Secretary at the Front Desk really dug all the info packed into each page.

I took a picture of the calendar in front of their X-prize that commands the lobby.

I had to sigh, if only there was an X-prize for new energy…

Then I slid over to Xcor, a small, independent company making their own spaceship – “the whole thing”, said the young engineer who answered the door. I said cold fusion promises a clean, dense, power solution, though no technology is available just yet.

Showing him the pictures of cold fusion cells, he said “I need a power plant – not two guys with a test-tube!”

I had to laugh at that one, and told him “it’s in the works…”

Driving cross the port to BAE Systems, I saw for the first time the big, new hangar for Virgin Galactic. It was almost like spotting a used bookstore from the road – I made a beeline to their facility.

Walking through the lobby doors, I had to remember that I was walking through the doors of a commercial space enterprise – with real spaceships – for people!

“Hi, I do clean energy advocacy for cold fusion and wanted to drop off a few calendars for your engineering team,” I said to the woman at the Virgin Galactic Front Desk.

“Well thank you, nobody ever gives us calendars!” she kindly replied.

I sure was happy to break the mold.

Virgin-Galactic-Lobby-133501“Are you an engineer?” I asked a young man standing around watching our exchange.

“Uh, I’m one of ’em,” he said.

“Here, have a calendar!”

He started paging through the “facts, fotos, and fun” right away!

I wasn’t allowed to take photos of the place, only the lobby backdrop. I was so excited, I forgot to ask about the graphics, but that sure looks like a WhiteKnight to me.

I pulled out of Mojave satisfied that cold fusion will be on the lips of at least a few engineers tonite – one way or another, and they’ve got a handy reference too. I’ll look forward to stopping in again on my way back down to Los Angeles in another week or two.

Will the calendar on the bulletin board still be there? How many were recycled? How many were ridiculed? How many inspired?

Hey Mojave, hope you dig it, and check out George Miley‘s GPHS designed to replace RTGs as presented in Session 462 Advanced Concepts at the NETS last year.

2013 History of Cold Fusion Calendar

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’utilit√© 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 StormsThe 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.
