Gregory Chaitin is a Professor of Computer Science and Philosophy of Computing at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Here he discusses the landscape of LENR with Tom O’Brien posting on podomatic. Chaitin gives Andrea Rossi credit for bringing cold fusion to a wider consciousness and mentions Mats Lewan‘s new book An Impossible Invention, which he finds to be an excellent look at the unveiling of the E-Cat.
Go to Tom O’Brien‘s interview with Gregory Chaitin on Podomatic here.
He also touches on the 2014 CF/LANR Colloquium at MIT held on the 25th Anniversary of the announcement of cold fusion, a bit of the science and politics behind LENR, the current lack of an accepted theory, and Japanese and Swedish research.
Chaitin is particularly impressed with Clean Planet, Inc., and newly formed group dedicated to bringing LENR technology forward through funding and support. Listen to Clean Planet’s Hideki Yoshino present some of this research work [.pdf][.mp3] performed by Tadahiko Mizuno and his team at the recent Colloquium at MIT, or watch the video here.

Nice talk but F&P used a palladium cathode not platinum.
What have we become?
I’m old enough to remember when we were an innovative country with an industrial base. We could have seized the day and made LENR research “a great national effort” in 1989 but the know-it-alls in swivel chairs said it was “bad science”,“voodoo science”.
Gilding the lily.
From Swedish Defence FMV is known a proposal to use liquid lithium-7 isotope in combination with protons to form helium. See also Cockroft and Walton (1932). Why not do the test with protonated pellets of e.g. palladium or titanium ?
