This morning I received a set of survey questions, from a friend in Europe. Here are my answers:

- WHAT IS COLD FUSION (LENR, CANR, CMNS)?

It is certainly not pseudoscience, as many think. It is protoscience claiming that nuclear activities result from some chemical processes, such as those taking place in electrolysis, or when hydrogen ions diffuse through some solids. Kinetic energies of such ions, and dominant products of reactions, are believed to be very different from those observed in the so-called “hot fusion.” The term hot fusion usually refers to thermonuclear reactions, and to reactions in which ions are electrically accelerated before colliding.

- HOW DOES IT WORK?

I do not know.

- WHAT CHANCES DOES IT HAVE TO BE SCALED UP TO A TECHNOLOGY?

Impossible to predict at this time.

- WHAT HAVE WE TO DO IN ORDER TO ATTAIN THIS?

Experimental results, performed by qualified researchers, must become 100% reproducible anywhere and any time. Protoscience will then become part of mainstream science. Also see items #210 and # 211 at my cold fusion website:
