Cold Fusion: How it works
Cold Fusion. Explain this, if you can.
This was gathered April 20th 2009, roughly 20 years after the initial 1989 press conference where their findings were shot to shreds, instead of the scientific community pulling together and trying experiments to make it work.

    "This was gathered April 20th 2009, roughly 20 years after the initial 1989 press conference where their findings were shot to shreds, *instead of the scientific community pulling together and trying experiments to make it work* So you're shitting all over the scientific community in the 80s because the University of Utah prematurely claimed they'd effectively achieved nuclear fusion at room temperature based on an unfinished paper that the scientists themselves opposed the release of, that when peer-reviewed by other nuclear physicists and electrochemists even in it's unfinished state, was found to be sloppy, poorly conducted with failed controls and relied on assumptions, missing 'evidence' and baseless claims? Well, thank fuck BlackBoxTechnology wasn't working science back in 2010! I'm hoping in the decade since this was posted that you've been able to either buy a clue, or finally pass fifth grade science at least.

    تحية السلام و المحبة، ما صحة هذه المقولة أو الأثر و شكرا بعدد النجوم و المجرات!؟: 5665 - عنه (عليه السلام) - حيث كان جالسا على نهر الفرات وبيده قضيب، فضرب به على صفحة الماء وقال: لو شئت لجعلت لكم من الماء نورا ونارا (1) (2). (1) لم يفصح الإمام (عليه السلام) عن مضمون كلامه بل أجراه مجرى الرموز، وذلك لأن عقول الناس في ذلك الزمان لا تتحمل أكثر من هذا. وفي قوله: " لجعلت لكم من الماء نورا ونارا " دلالة خفية إلى ما في الماء من طاقة يمكن أن تولد النور (وهو الكهرباء) والنار (وهو الطاقة الحرارية). وإذا تعمقنا في النظرة وجدنا أن الماء يتركب من عنصرين هما الهيدروجين والأكسجين. الأول قابل للاحتراق وإعطاء النور، والثاني يساعد على الاحتراق ويعطي الحرارة. وأبعد من ذلك فإن وجود الماء الثقيل O 2 D في الماء الطبيعي بنسبة 2 إلى... / 10 يجعله أفضل مصدر طبيعي للهيدروجين الثقيل الذي نسميه (الدوتريوم) ونرمز له بالرمز D. وهذا النظير هو حجر الأساس في تركيب القنبلة الهيدروجينية، القائمة على اندماج ذرتين من الدوتيريوم لتشكيل الهليوم. علما بأن الطاقة الناتجة عن هذا الاندماج والتي - هي منشأ طاقة الشمس - تفوق آلاف المرات الطاقة الناتجة عن القنبلة الذرية التي تقوم على انشطار اليورانيوم، ولأخذ فكرة فإن اصطناع غرام من الهليوم نتيجة اندماج الدوتيريوم يعطي طاقة = 675 مليون بليون ارغة = 200 ألف كيلو واط ساعي (تصنيف نهج البلاغة: 783).

    So... all this talk about cold fusion providing massive amounts of energy for all - energy far greater than that provided by nuclear power- simply amounts to boiling water.... just like every other power plant. Seems like all we can do is turn turbines to create electricity. That's it. And all we're looking for are more and more expensive and far fetched ways to... turn turbines. Even if we had a way to create anti-matter to cause matter/anti-matter reactions, all we'd ever do with it is boil water and use the steam to turn turbines. We're never going to get more energy until we can do something other than turn turbines.

    I remember when the story broke about cold fusion. The Russians said they knew about it years before. I'm like ok if you knew about it? Why didn't you develop it into a viable source of power? They always come out with a stupid false statement like this, like they said they already have a COVID-19 vaccine. When the space shuttle Challenger exploded, they said Americans cannot be trusted with technology. Ironically there Chernobyl nuclear reactor exploded about a week later.

      Deuterium is an isotope of hydrogen that has one proton and one neutron. ("Normal" hydrogen has one proton and zero neutrons.) To distinguish between "normal" hydrogen and deuterium, people often use the symbol D for deuterium. So to answer your question, technically, yes, D2 is H2, but with an additional neutron in the nucleus of each hydrogen atom.

    The issue with this is that it doesn’t give the figures about how much energy you use to get the D molecules to fuse into He, also it neglects the fact that the D molecules need to gain energy in order to fuse, if they don’t have enough energy not enough will fuse to release net positive energy. Most fusion concepts use thermal energy at really high temperatures to get molecules to undergo fusion. More data on how much energy is gained by D molecules and the D density and cross sections (the effective “area” of the D) also the amount of energy put into the process vs how much you can get out via use of the heat. This does not provide enough information to see if it is at all feasible.

    There's something very interesting going on. Palladium is used in this process. For so many years, palladium was never as high as it is now. Far more than platinum. And cost more than gold right now as well. What's the cause of this? Is someone actually using this technology for themselves? If not, then why is palladium the highest priced commodity on the stock exchange? It's also used in catalytic converters, but auto sales are not skyrocketing. They are down.

    i believe cold fusion is possible. if you look up HID headlights that is basically how cold fusion is supposed (i think) to work. "HID headlights use electrodes to charge the gas inside the bulb". I understand that the headlights are meant to help you see but it still produces energy, cold fusion uses water and electrolytes but its basically the same concept. And why does it have to be palladium why can't it be another type of metal or at the least a metal similar to palladium like platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium, osmium? or why does the gas have to be hydrogen when there are 10 other gases to choose from, there are also Xenon headlights out there and it probably follows the same principles of HID headlights? or why not use halogens instead of water or use halogenated solvents instead? From my understanding, it looks like you need a SOLVENT + SOLUTE + ELECTROLYTES + CATHODES + ANODES + METAL. Maybe its not that simple but like I said from my understanding.

  • spectrumofreality

    Cold fusion is possible and this isn't how it's done. Also there's no need for heavy water.... I have a concept that can prove show how it's possible and the science behind it taps into the reality of infinite abundance of energy. The people working on this idea have missed some very fundamental principles of how it's possible and how it works.

    It's a shame the guys who made this discovery have to wait until they die before getting a noble peace prize. They should have bragged to another country for money instead of bragging to their colleagues who are a part of a community that has historically assassinated people for making these discoveries. Also these are currently working cold fusion reactors in labs nobody cares about because they aren't stupid enough to go around waving a red flag.

    Sounds like a reasonable hypothesis... You need to realize the reality will not occur on this planet at this time. This world is governed by fixed opinions, arrogance and vested interested.

    For anyone who isn't versed in fusion wondering why this is snake oil: When the nuclei (cores) of two atoms get very close together, they attract each other with tremendous force, like magnets. Upon colliding, they release a large amount of energy, and a heavier element is left behind, (ie two hydrogens combine to form helium). This is the basic process of fusion. Sounds great, but the nuclei will actually REPEL each other until they're close enough to fuse. The "cold fusion" reactor claims that it accomplishes this with the "lattice" material; holding the atoms in such close proximity that they have no choice BUT to fuse. I am not at liberty to say whether this "lattice confinement" is feasible or not, but I trust those who say it isn't. A REAL fusion reactor forces the atoms to fuse by heating them up. How much heat are we talking? Fill a shot glass full of various gasses and disperse them inside a giant vacuum chamber... about the size of a small house. Then, take enough energy to power a town and start pumping it into those gasses. For example, 50,000,000 watts of heat is going to be used in the ITER reactor when it starts running. Because you're putting so much energy into such a tiny mass, the temperature skyrockets to several million degrees. Remember, heat = movement on an atomic level, so if you get the fuel hot enough, the atoms will dart around with enough velocity to overcome the repelling force and fuse instantly when they collide. Finally, the soup of ionized gasses must be kept away from the vacuum chamber walls with extremely strong magnets. This process is hugely expensive and requires gargantuan amounts of engineering, which is why the idea of cold fusion is so appealing. Please don't be deceived by the crook/idiot that produced this video. Don't get me wrong, fusion IS our ticket to nearly limitless energy supplies, but not like this. We NEED fusion to become mainstream as soon as it possibly can, because every day it doesn't, we lose a bit more of our dwindling nonrenewable resources and environment. The LAST thing the human race needs is for something as important as fusion energy to be tainted by cult followings and myths.

    • Muskrat7

      Lol I love how people say they trust those who say it isn't possible. Well that is NOT science. Science is experimentation. Fact: Experiments have shown increased heat and helium from experiments. So what needs to happen is more people doing these in a peer reviewed manor. If you look into the politics of how Cold Fusion got tossed out you will see it was not about science. There are still reports of increased heat from running these experiments and Tritium, etc. So no real scientist says, "I trust those that say it is not possible."

    Sounds more like splitting than fusing and also i highly doubt that a lattice can force atoms together as per fusion does. If it was that easy to force atoms together then we wouldn't be heating them up to ionized gasses to strip electrons from the nucleus to make fusion achievable without immense gravity

  • Smokey Walker
    Smokey Walker

    So fusion happens creating helium??????????? Well, if the strong force is the strongest of the 4 known forces, what over comes it to cause the fusion? Still not getting any answer to that one. So stuff get trapped between the palladium atoms, so what, what force does the palladium have which can over power the strong force of the protons. It's only held together by bonds at the electron level which are in no way a match for the strong force. 25 yeas have gone by and the bad science is still not answering real questions.
