Both Cold Fusion and Fusion power need a big reactor.So the reactor would be too big.

The article says it will fit in a pickup bed. I'll make room in the yard.

If family history holds true it won't matter to me. I'll have alzheimer's and won't have a clue.

Do not hold your breath.

I suspect there is a very good reason why the creator does not want his invention independently verified - because it does not work.

I will not hold my breath as this is not a form of information technology thus can not be predicted with certainty. If its ready by 2030 great if not and I have to wait 50 or 100 more years that is ok too.

In this case, I will rely on physics. What they are claiming is not possible under the laws of physics.

I don't know. If that is true then I will just have to wait about 100 more years as I had originally thought. No big deal.

We had a fellow here in New Zealand who claimed he had invented a way run a gasoline engine on water. He first filled an empty milk carton with water then closed it then he connected a pair of wires coming out the side of the carton together and waited while the water 'charged' itself with some hidden device inside the carton. The 'charged' water was then poured into tank on a motorcycle which was then started and ran fine. An exhaust gas analyses showed the presence of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide indicating that a hydrocarbon was being burned. This would indicate some form of nuclear reaction to form carbon from water would it not? Actually, the oxygen in the water molecule would have to reacted into carbon and the hydrogen with that carbon to form a hydrocarbon. However, you and I and everyone else in the world knows he had a hidden fuel tank, undetectable by the scrutinizing TV show hosts (who are not technical experts), feeding the carburettor!

Could this be what's happening in this 'cold fusion' claim?
