Cold fusion: Science's most controversial technology is back
But few scientific embarrassments raised temperatures quite as much as cold fusion. In 1989, University of Utah chemists Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann announced that they had, at room temperature in the lab, tamed the process that powers the sun: ...
Cold fusion is better left out in the cold
Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons caused a sensation when they reported in 1989 that they had fused atomic nuclei at room pressure and temperature, producing a burst of energy. But the results weren't replicable, and the field sank into ignominy.
Adobe patches critical vulnerability in ColdFusion application server
Adobe Systems released critical security patches for its ColdFusion application server, which has been a target for hackers in the past. The updates are available for ColdFusion versions 10 and 11 and address a critical security vulnerability that ...
Congress Is Suddenly Interested in Cold Fusion
The Committee quotes a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) assessment that says if cold fusion works, it would be a disruptive technology that could revolutionize energy production and storage. That is putting it mildly. Commercial cold fusion as claimed ...
In Cold Fusion 2.0, Who's Scamming Whom?
IH has indeed said it remains committed to cold fusion research. The questions that remain are whether they have been trying to patent Rossi's own technology—which would be curious if they did not believe in it—and what the referee's report really says.
This investor is chasing a new kind of fusion
This new technology, called Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) is related but very different from the cold fusion technology that in 1989 researchers Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann claimed to have licked when they revealed to the world a simple ...
Can Cold Fusion Come Back From the Dead?
Cold fusion, or low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR), is potentially an inexhaustible source of clean energy. But it's a big idea with a bad name. Back in 1989, Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons published an experiment that suggested nuclear fusion ...

Jennifer Matt is the managing editor of WhatTheyThink's Print Software section as well as President of Web2Print Experts, Inc. a technology-independent print software consulting firm helping printers with web-to-print and print MIS solutions. You can ...
NASA's cold fusion tech could put a nuclear reactor in every home, car, and plane
The cold fusion dream lives on: NASA is developing cheap, clean, low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology that could eventually see cars, planes, and homes powered by small, safe nuclear reactors. When we think of nuclear power, there are usually ...
The Coldest Case
Foreign Policy (blog)
In November 2014, Bill Gates visited Italy's leading hub for LENR research, the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy, and Sustainable Economic Development, where he was briefed on the latest cold-fusion activities. Per the usual pattern ...
