Is Cold Fusion the Future?

Yoshiaki Arata 03 June 2008

Yoshiaki Arata.

One of our readers has alerted to us this article regarding cold fusion by Steven Krivit of the New Energy Times. It refers to a recent demonstration by researchers in Japan on the 22nd May 2008 who apparently managed to produce excess heat and helium-4, the results of an historic low-energy nuclear reaction experiment.

The brains behind this demonstration is Yoshiaki Arata, a top physicist in Japan who has been awarded the Order of Cultural Merit which is Japan's highest award. He is also the first person to have performed a thermonuclear fusion experiment showing large amounts of d-d reactions in Japan. Professor Yue Chang Zhang assisted Yoshiaki Arata demonstrated very successfully the generation of continuous excess energy (heat) from ZrO2-nano-Pd sample powders under D2 gas charging and generation of helium-4.

As we are not physicists we are now way out of our depth but we are curious and bring this demonstration to your attention. Maybe some of our readers can throw some light on just how this will be used and what this means in terms of benefits to humankind.

To read the article in full, please click this link to the Energy Times web site. Also, you might find this link to the physics world interesting.

Have a good one.

The answer is Thorium. Yes Thorium. The article in Resource Investor some months back hihglighted exactly why Thorium can be burned way passed the reactive level for weapons use.

I'm thinking that if one day scientists can show Big Money that fusion under low temperature conditions is economically viable, then we uranium (fission) stock holders are in deep doo doo. I'm hoping we're still twenty years away from this demonstration (wringing my hands).

daveydog, You and me both! But we do need to scan the horizon now and again to see what the competition might be.

I can't recall the source however, I read an article about China wanting to mine the moon for helium-4, which I understood is required for the fusion process to happen. I'm not a physicist however they think is is worth it to go get it.
