modern Abstract spiritual Art-COLD FUSION




April 22, 2009 — Updated 0050 GMT (0850 HKT)

Missing vials of a potentially dangerous virus have prompted an Army investigation into the disappearance from a lab in Maryland.

Fort Detrick is the home of the Army’s top biological research facility.

The Army’s Criminal Investigation Command agents have been visiting Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, to investigate the disappearance of the vials. Christopher Grey, spokesman for the command, said this latest investigation has found “no evidence of criminal activity.”

The vials contained samples of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, a virus that sickens horses and can be spread to humans by mosquitoes. In 97 percent of cases, humans with the virus suffer flu-like symptoms, but it can be deadly in about 1 out of 100 cases, according to Caree Vander Linden, a spokeswoman for the Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. There is an effective vaccine for the disease and there hasn’t been an outbreak in the United States since 1971.

The vials had been at the research institute’s facility at Fort Detrick, home of the Army’s top biological research facility, for more than a decade. The three missing vials were among thousands of vials that were under the control of a senior scientist who retired in 2004. When another Fort Detrick scientist recently inventoried the retired scientist’s biological samples, he discovered that the three vials of the virus were missing. The original scientist’s records about his vials dated back to the days of paper-and-pen inventories.

During the investigation, the retired scientist and another former Fort Detrick researcher cooperated with investigating agents and, according to Vander Linden, they came back to the facility to help look for the vials.

Vander Linden said the investigators know that several years ago an entire freezer full of biological samples broke down and all the samples had to be safely destroyed. But a complete inventory of what was in the freezer was not done before the samples were destroyed. Vander Linden said there’s a “strong possibility” the vials were in that freezer and destroyed, but that isn’t known for sure.

This investigation comes two months after all research at the research institute facility at Fort Detrick was halted for a complete computer-based inventory of all disease samples at the fort. That inventory is expected to be complete before summer and may help solve the mystery of the three missing vials, officials said.

Cold fusion Brake through

60-Minute’s report is a welcome breath of fresh air and gives me hope that the mainstream media, at least some of it, may be waking up to its greater responsibility to the public.

Apparently COLD FUSION is real.

Government and military labs, as well as countless commercial labs around the world, have now been able to confirm that the excess heat build up is real “WITHOUT A DOUBT”. It is suspected that this is a low grade fusion process working in the lattice structure of the palladium atoms. The questions as to how it works, and why the reaction only happens about 75% of the time are still under unanswered.

Fleishmann said the technology could be deployed quite quickly. The technology would in essence provide a new type of battery that would never need to be discarded or recharged in many cases. Your laptop computer would just run for its lifetime. Your car would just run on electric motors poweded by cold fusion power cells. Your house would have all the electricity it needed with NO connection to the grid — just a large cold fusion cell sitting outside next to the heat-pump. Commercial power stations would simply replace palladium rods periodically.

Evey gallon of sea water will provide the energy content of 10 gallons of gasoline.

Coal, oil, natural gas, solar, wind, thermal and fission will eventually become obsolete technologies.

This IS going to change the world.

The Oil Establishment WILL fight back however, so expect a back lash. Even right after the 60-Minutes show concluded, Big Oil had a TV commercial talking about “increasing production for oil.” What gall.



APS Denies Role Ascribed in 60 Minutes’ Cold Fusion Piece

CBS temporarily pulled their very popular Cold Fusion video segment after the American Physical Society published a press release denying that it had recommended any particular scientist to verify the energy output claims [of Energetics LLC].

This morning started with a slew of emails in my inbox abuzz with questions as to why CBS had pulled all of their videos pertaining to the very popular Cold Fusion story 60 Minutes ran on April 19, which even now is listed as their 4th most popular video on their site.

What was puzzling was that while the videos were pulled, the text version was still available.  The fact that the lead video also disappeared from YouTube showed that this wasn’t just a technical glitch.

What forces had been brought to bear to spur this censorship?

This mystery fizzled as word came that the very prestigious American Physical Society had a problem with how they were portrayed in the piece.  CBS pulled the video and edited the transcript the day following an April 22 press release by APS that stated:

On April 19, CBS aired a “60 Minutes” segment on “cold fusion,” a process that proponents claim could solve the world’s energy problems. The script stated that “[’60 Minutes’] asked the American Physical Society, the top physics organization in America, to recommend an independent scientist. They gave us Rob Duncan, vice chancellor of research at the University of Missouri and an expert in measuring energy.” That statement is false.

None of the American Physical Society’s (APS) authorized spokespersons, including the president, president-elect, executive officer, director of public affairs, head of media relations and press secretary, provided CBS with the names of any experts. APS has learned that “60 Minutes” did receive a long list of names – that included Rob Duncan’s – from University of Minnesota Professor Allen Goldman, who states unequivocally that he never claimed to be acting in the name of APS.

APS does not, as an organization, endorse particular experiments or their results. That can only be done through publication in peer-reviewed journals, and by independent replication by other researchers. The APS does not endorse the cold fusion experiments featured in the April 19 “60 Minutes” news program. Any suggestion by the CBS journalists to the contrary is misleading and false.

The American Physical Society is the leading professional organization of physicists, representing over 46,000 physicists in academia and industry in the United States and internationally. APS has offices in College Park, MD (Headquarters), Ridge, NY, and Washington, D.C.

The link to the cold fusion segment stopped working a few hours before the entire show was pulled.  The segment is still available from the CNet affiliate site, at least for now.

It’s too bad that APS felt they had to pour such a cold bucket of water on what had been a very warm shower of praise on a long-maligned field of research.  Being a reporter myself, I know how easy it is to inadvertently portray things in a skewed way, so I’m not upset with 60-Minutes, though I’m sure their more austere colleagues will be miffed at the bad editing job that has resulted in a healthy dose of egg in CBS‘ face.

I hope this incident doesn’t backfire, further reinforcing the “junk science” stigma that cold fusion has been fighting for far too long.  I predict that for many skeptics, it will do just that, but that for the open minded, this episode will have exposed them to the positive ramifications and hope that the cold fusion field holds out for the planet.

Whatever the case, the politics of science suck.  If only the truth were the object, not someone’s reputation.

Fortunately, the situation is only temporary.  In response to my question to CBS about the videos being pulled, CBS News – 60 Minutes, Communications Directory, Kevin Tedesco wrote: “We will have the video back up as soon as we can make the change to it that we already made to the text version.”

Update 2

By Mark Anderson
IEEE Spectrum

25 March 2009—On Monday, scientists at the American Chemical Society (ACS) meeting in Salt Lake City announced a series of experimental results that they argue confirms controversial “cold fusion” claims.

Chief among the findings was new evidence presented by U.S. Navy researchers of high-energy neutrons in a now-standard cold fusion experimental setup—electrodes connected to a power source, immersed in a solution containing both palladium and “heavy water.” If confirmed, the result would add support to the idea that reactions like the nuclear fire that lights up the sun might somehow be tamed for the tabletop. But even cold fusion’s proponents admit that they have no clear explanation why their nuclear infernos are so weak as to be scarcely noticeable in a beaker.

The newest experiment, conducted by researchers at the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center, in San Diego, required running current through the apparatus for two to three weeks. Beneath the palladium- and deuterium-coated cathode was a piece of plastic—CR-39, the stuff that eyeglasses are typically made from. Physicists use CR-39 as a simple nuclear particle detector.

After the experiment, the group analyzed the CR-39 and found microscopic blossoms of “triple tracks.” Such tracks happen when a high-energy neutron has struck a carbon atom in the plastic, causing the atom to decay into three helium nuclei (alpha particles). The alpha particles don’t travel more than a few microns, though, before they plow into other atoms in the CR-39. The result is a distinctive three-leaf clover that, to physicists, points to the by-product of a nuclear reaction.

“Taking all the data together, we have compelling evidence that nuclear reactions [are happening in the experiment],” says physicist Pamela Mosier-Boss of the Navy group.

According to Edmund Storms, retired nuclear scientist from Los Alamos National Laboratory and author of The Science of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (World Scientific, 2007), experiments confirming Pons and Fleischmann’s finding of excess heat have now been published in 150 different papers in journals and conference proceedings around the world. The reported excess heat, he says, ranges from milliwatts up to 180 watts.

Ludwik Kowalski, formerly a physics professor at New Jersey’s Montclair State University, now retired, says that throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s, he was as skeptical as anyone about cold fusion. But in 2007, he conducted his own CR-39 experiment, as described in an earlier paper by the U.S. Navy group.

“I got the same result they got, exactly,” Kowalski says, noting that the CR-39 tracks he saw traced the outline of the cathode wire and were highly suggestive of nuclear activity. “Now I think there are serious indications that there is something behind this.”

Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to
grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it
or something. I believe that you simply could do with a few % to drive the message home a bit, however other than that, that is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

A design like yours with a few simple tweeks
would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design.
