National Science Foundation – Cold Fusion & LENR – Search Engine Censorship


The National Science Foundation falls short. According to them, popular Cold Fusion – LENR Science does not even exist. In the age of the Internet this equates to search engine censorship. Recently (last year) the U.S. finally revealed links to LENR. Yet the National Science Foundation site still leaves people clueless, without any information provided on low energy nuclear reaction science or engineering.

The incident leading up to my investigation of search engine censorship of LENR was a World Wide Science Alert for “Low Energy Nuclear Reaction” sent on Jun 19, 2013, informing me about Doug Wells  – NASA “Low Energy Nuclear Reaction Aircraft” research grant; which enabled our coverage of it.

I then found this about World Wide Science org.

On behalf of the World Wide Science Alliance, was developed and is maintained by the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), an element of the Office of Science within the U.S. Department of Energy.

At World Wide Science you will find hundreds of publications about LENR – Search 2013 and 2012 LENR  and 2011 LENR. Including this paper picked up by the “Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China” web search engine. The Chinese science web portal yields high LENR returns; which leads me to believe more Chinese have news of LENR Energy than do Americans.

NUCLEAR, AND CLEAN 原文传递 Joseph Zawodny, Aviation Week & Space Technology, 2011-01-01

Experimental evidence indicates low-energy nuclear-reaction (LENR) technology is potentially an extremely clean and green energy source that could revolutionize not only aerospace but the wider field of power generation for home and industry. But much work remains to turn today’s inefficient and self-destructive devices into practical powerplants, LENR is a form of nuclear energy. Although research goes back to the birth of nuclear physics, recent work began the late 1980s and the “cold fusion” debacle of Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann. A growing body of increasingly repeatable experimental evidence indicates the LENR effect is real and is likely not fusion, cold or otherwise. Theories to explain the phenomenon have emerged, but the majority have relied on flawed or new physics, often being used to explain only a small subset of the extant evidence and ignoring the rest.

Yet nothing is listed about LENR at the U.S. Department of Energy OSTI.  Their search engine censors out the LENR publications found by the World Wide Science search engine. Why? It certanly shouldn’t.

  • Your search – LENR – did not match any documents.

  • No pages were found containing “LENR”.

Only recently has the DoE revealed links to LENR science through their Science Accelerator site. It fails to provide much of the information available, censoring out almost every paper on LENR research. Science Accelerator lists only two LENR publications for 2013, four from 2012, and three from 2011.

U.S. National Science Foundation Fails Mission – Shows Ignorance

Regarding LENR Science

“The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…” With an annual budget of about $7.0 billion (FY 2012), we are the funding source for approximately 20 percent of all federally supported basic research conducted by America’s colleges and universities. In many fields such as mathematics, computer science and the social sciences, NSF is the major source of federal backing.

We fulfill our mission chiefly by issuing limited-term grants — currently about 11,000 new awards per year, with an average duration of three years — to fund specific research proposals that have been judged the most promising by a rigorous and objective merit-review system. Most of these awards go to individuals or small groups of investigators. Others provide funding for research centers, instruments and facilities that allow scientists, engineers and students to work at the outermost frontiers of knowledge.

NSF’s goals–discovery, learning, research infrastructure and stewardship–provide an integrated strategy to advance the frontiers of knowledge, cultivate a world-class, broadly inclusive science and engineering workforce and expand the scientific literacy of all citizens, build the nation’s research capability through investments in advanced instrumentation and facilities, and support excellence in science and engineering research and education through a capable and responsive organization. We like to say that NSF is where discoveries begin….

Many of the discoveries and technological advances have been truly revolutionary. In the past few decades, NSF-funded researchers have won more than 200 Nobel Prizes as well as other honors too numerous to list. These pioneers have included the scientists or teams that discovered many of the fundamental particles of matter, analyzed the cosmic microwaves left over from the earliest epoch of the universe, developed carbon-14 dating of ancient artifacts, decoded the genetics of viruses, and created an entirely new state of matter called a Bose-Einstein condensate.” – end quote

The NSF Can “Begin to Discover”

At Cold Fusion Now!

Bose-Einstein condensates and the theorized role they play in the low energy nuclear reactive environment.

  • Purdue Nuclear and Many Body Theory Group – PNMBTG-6-2011

  • “Generalized Theory of Bose-Einstein Condensation Nuclear Fusion for Hydrogen-Metal System” (LENR)

  • Dr. Yeong E. Kim Department of Physics – June 18, 2011

  • ABSTRACT (download pdf)

  • Generalized theory of Bose-Einstein condensation nuclear fusion (BECNF) is used to carry out theoretical analyses of recent experimental results of Rossi et al. for hydrogen-nickel system. Based on incomplete experimental information currently available, preliminary theoretical explanations of the experimental results are presented in terms of the generalized BECNF theory. Additional accurate experimental data are needed for obtaining more complete theoretical descriptions and predictions, which can be tested by further experiments.

  • Read new data about the Rossi reactor (shown as this articles title picture), “Indication of Anomalous Heat Energy Production in a Reactor Device”. Found through a title search here at worldwidescienceorg and at scienceacceleratororg. No reference to the paper is found at the National Science Foundation.


  • The  state of matter called a Bose-Einstein condensate was not “created” by researchers funded by the  National Science Foundation. Rather its existence was verified through scientific experiments. (discovery)

  • Bose-Einstein researchers review LENR papers citing the role of Bose Einstein condensates in the low energy nuclear reactive environment.

  • Learn from Nobel Laureates about popular “cold fusion” science…..         LENR by –Dr. Brian Josephson and LENR by –Dr. Julian Schwinger.

  • The U.S. National Science Foundation assuredly knows about LENR Science and is certainly marginalizing LENR Research.(search engine censorship)

The National Science Foundation has an Impressive Budget

The  NSF FY 2014 Budget Request for the Research and Related Activities (R&RA) Appropriation is: (given in million to one dollars)

  • $6,212.29 million, an increase of $523.29 million, or 9.2 percent, above the FY 2012 Enacted level of
  • $5,689.00 million. Support from the R&RA Appropriation enables U.S. leadership and progress across the frontiers of scientific and engineering research and education.

$6,212,290,000 ($6.2 Billion) +/-  $493,290,000 / 8.6%

That’s 6 billion 212 million and 290 thousand dollars ” plus or minus an estimated $493,290,000

Plus or minus a budget variable of $493.29 million?

The NSF should give that budget variable to…

NSF – LENRgy – Engineering and Science

LENR Grants/$493,290,000/National Science Foundation

Not likely since, at NSF – LENR does not even exist…

Where is Cold Fusion – LENR Low Energy Nuclear Reaction Science at NSF?

Clandestine NSF Panel Warms To Cold Fusion

By Christopher Anderson | November 13, 1989

WASHINGTON—Four months after one federal agency killed the prospect of government support of cold fusion, a second agency has brought it back to life.

“The strange phenomenon of low-temperature nuclear fusion, announced at the University of Utah with great fanfare March 23 by two chemists, took another bizarre turn last month when a self-described “upbeat, enthusiastic” panel of experts assembled by the National Science Foundation’s engineering division concluded that the effects of cold fusion are real and “cannot be explained as a result of artifacts, equipment, or human errors.” Besides contradicting a preliminary report issued by another panel of experts convened by the Department of Energy in July, the October workshop was vehemently opposed by physicists and chemists at NSF. In seeming testimony to the audacity of their effort, the sponsors tried to keep the meeting secret, initially planning to transport the participants by bus to an undisclosed location for their three-day meeting. Then, after news of the event was leaked to the press, NSF agreed grudgingly to hold an informal “media opportunity” rather than a public press conference to declare the panelists’ support for further research.”
