2014 Cold Fusion/LANR Colloquium at MIT

Make plans now to attend the 2014 Cold Fusion/LANR Colloquium Friday, March 21 – Sunday March 23, 2014 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US.

To register, go here.

The Colloquium occurs one month from now on the 25th anniversary of the announcement of the discovery of cold fusion by scientists Drs. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons. Banished from mainstream science institutions and academic journals, research in what is now called condensed matter nuclear science continues to accelerate towards breakthrough energy technology as scientists gather to discuss the latest results in formulating a theory for the elusive reaction, more professors are bringing research into academic labs, and a growing number of companies race to develop proto-type technologies that promise a revolution in power generation.

This is the sixth such Colloquium sponsored by Dr. Mitchell Swartz of JET Energy, Inc. and Nanortech in collaboration with Dr. Peter Hagelstein of MIT. 2014 Colloquium scheduled speakers include:

  1. Cross posted, thanks Ruby.
    If you were wondering why the Cold Fusion research was geting the cold shoulder may I offer an Economics Professors understanding of the role of the $US.
    Unlike most (all?) economists he is lucid.
    Right at the end he sees that the only thing that threatens the hegemony of the $US is a way of side stepping the Arabs’ stranglehold on the only energy source avalable-oil.
    Qui bono?
    I would add an old Zulu saying; “iZulu leduma iQuniso!” (The Heavens thunder the Truth). In this case the Climate Catastrophe. So tell me, How is California doing these days?
    Can anyone else join the dots?
    There are consequences to evil.

    Cedar Falls, Iowa — The University of Northern Iowa LENR Lecture
    Hosting a lecture on low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) at 7 p.m., Monday, March 10, in the Center for Energy and Environmental Education Auditorium.
    Tom Wind, an Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer, will provide information on this relatively new technology. LENR allows controlled fusion of hydrogen into helium in small modular reactors that can fit on a tabletop. This results in thermal energy with no radiation dangers, radioactive byproducts or combustion of fossil fuels, at a much lower cost than traditional fossil fuels.
    This lecture is sponsored by the Recycling and Reuse Technology Transfer Center (RRTTC). For more information, contact Jennifer Bruss, RRTTC program and community outreach coordinator, at 319-273-3689 or
    Will either of these events provide an in depth review of the actual science behind the most important LENR technology being commercialized?
    The transmutation of radioactive waste to benign elements with concurrent production of high process steam is the most important emergent LENR technology.
    Such is the Global Energy Corporation GeNie Reactor – Gen 5 technology. Lawrence Forsely is president of Global Energy Corporation and presented the GeNie reactor as “ready to go”. A 10MW LENR fusion fast fission hybrid reactor: cost $250 million, refuel it once every 50 years, transmutes radioactive waste while providing low cost electricity.
    Larry Forsely, Pamela Mosier-Boss, and Frank Gordon are speaking at MIT and could field questions or provide a presentation, each are experts on the subject of LENR transmutation of nuclear waste. They filed the patents in 2007 and 2009.
    Early last year I realized that if the advent of LENR energy caused the nuclear electrical industry to collapse we would be left with the clean up costs with no revenue. These plants have debt to pay, years of projected revenue to do so, with a portion of revenue monies set aside towards decommissioning and waste management. I became worried that a disruption in this would be really troublesome.
    Now, with GeNie reactor type LENR technology I am convinced we will succeed in preventing a collapse, clean up the waste, end the need to extract and process uranium for fuel, and enable the nuclear electrical industry to survive, actually thrive, long enough to do so.
    So many are seeking a solution for the remediation of nuclear waste, billions being spent, while problems worsen, disasters loom.
    Why the pursuit of hot fusion solutions when we had a cold fusion solution clearly in hand.
    Why didn’t Lawrence Forsley inform Swadesh Mahajan, and other colleagues in Austin, that he had filed a patent, in Europe for a reactor that transmutes dangerous radioactive wastes to benign elements, while creating quantities of excess energy?
    Why haven’t any of the cold fusion folks with the GeNie reactor told Kenneth Kok, the director of the international symposium on nuclear waste management, that they are ready to build one?
    “The Austin Conundrum – Transmutation of Radioactive Wastes”
    WAY BACK IN 2009…
    ON THE ONE HAND in 2009, by a professor out of Austin…
    We have this important development involving a hot fusion fission hybrid reactor that transmutes radioactive wastes. Estimated date for a prototype to be developed is 2050.
    “Nuclear Fusion-Fission Hybrid Could Contribute to Carbon-free Energy Future” Jan 27, 2009 Source: University of Texas at Austin – Read more at: http://phys.org/news152284917.html#jCp
    “Most people cite nuclear waste as the main reason they oppose nuclear fission as a source of power,” says Swadesh Mahajan, senior research scientist.
    ON THE OTHER HAND in 2009, by a professor out of Austin…
    We have a patent filed for a cold fusion fission hybrid reactor that transmutes radioactive wastes. The date of the proposal for a functioning GeNie reactor was in 2012, at a closed door meeting on Guam, while the deal was secretly signed in Saipan.
    Filed in US: September 21, 2007 The Navy, Pamela Boss LENR patent – System and Method for Generating Particles – Which is the sister patent to the GeNie reactor patent.
    International filing date: Feb. 25, 2009 – The JWK, Lawrence Parker Galloway Forsley LENR GeNie patent – A Hybrid Fusion Fast Fission Reactor

  3. I hope that someone will video this event as there is well known speakers who are on cold fusion field and it would be fabtastic to film the panels.

  4. For the many questions – suppression continues. Two Brazilians just had two of their tesla ion capture systems confiscated by the local utility after initial approval. They have two university studies and various other validations of their systems performance.

    Oil tankers both ground and shipping, oil and gas pipelines, electrical utilities, storage facilities, refineries, well drillers, mineral rights holders, the electrical grid, LNG producers, propane producers and distributors, governments who have nationalized oil industries, diesel distribution companies, caterpillar generators, GE turbines are just a few of the many entities that will be crushed as these technologies get out.

    We the People need to obviously set up some ghost funding and chip in some money to make sure these technologies get to the market. The various governments will have to much pressure on them, to approve any of the systems moving forward to the market. Numerous people, starting with Tesla and even before that tried to bring forth other such heretical technologies and ideas, have been killed, bought off, chipped, shut down, threatens, imprisoned, equipment confiscations, surveillance, break-ins, etc.

    It is time to move totally out of the dark ages as the light is here and it is not going out. Pun intended. lol
