So naturally itâ€™s a thrill to learn that two Italian scientists claim to have successfully developed a cold fusion reactor that produces 12,400 watts of heat power per 400 watts of input. Not only that, but theyâ€™ll be commercially available in just three months.
Cold fusion is a tricky business -- some say a theoretically implausible business -- and exactly zero of the previous claims of successful cold fusion have proven legitimate (remember when North Korea developed cold fusion?). Hypothetically (and broadly) speaking, the process involves fusing two smaller atomic nuclei together into a larger nucleus, a process that releases massive amounts of energy. If harnessed, cold fusion could provide cheap and nearly limitless energy with no radioactive byproduct or massive carbon emissions.
These scientist sound shady, just about like every other lying scientist who came out and said they have figured out cold fusion, but the fact remains that such a break through could change human kind forever. I guess we'll just have to keep holding out hope that someone finds out how to make it work, and is actually willing to prove to everyone how it is done. Right now these guys sound shady, but I'm always hoping someone figures it out.
