Australia and China Collaborate on Fusion

Australia National University (ANU) and the University of South China have embarked upon a major hot fusion research effort. ANU will ship the H1 Heliac stellerator from its Australian Plasma Fusion Research Facility to China later this year. The device is currently kept in Canberra, Australia’s capitol. Once in China it will be the first [...]

Hot Fusion Heats Up

Hot fusion might be closer to reality than some of its critics think, but still facing some problems News stories indicate that two important hot fusion milestones might be achieved in the near future. The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) in France is scheduled to begin generating hot plasma by December 2025, Wall Street Pit [...]

Tesla Plans Electric Semi-Truck, Electric Cars Spreading Fast

The world’s appetite for electricity is about to increase dramatically. Tesla is planning to unveil an electric semi-truck as early as September and Volkswagen is planning a vast network of filling stations for electric cars in the United States. “Tesla Semi truck unveil set for September,” Elon Musk tweeted on April 13. “Team has done [...]

Plasma is the Key to Hot Fusion

Many people are confused by the difference between hot and cold fusion and it is easy to see why. Both terms are vague catch all phrases for complex phenomena. Hot fusion would use superhot plasma to generate incredibly high temperatures to make energy. The plasma in some fusion reactors is incredibly hot up to 100 [...]

Bill Gates’ League of Billionaires will spend $1 Billion on Energy Research

Bill Gates is organizing a $1 billion fund that will invest in fusion and other clean energy technology. Breakthrough Energy Ventures (BEV) has the backing of some of the world’s richest people; and it might invest in cold fusion or low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). Gates will serve as chairman of the fund which is [...]

Trump Victory will have little or no Effect on Fusion

Donald J. Trump’s upset victory in the U.S. Presidential election will have little or no effect on either hot or cold fusion. Under the U.S. Constitution the President has little or no influence over science and technology research because he or she does not write the budget. Congress; especially the House of Representatives, writes the [...]

Germans want to Abolish Internal Combustion Engine

Germany might become the first of the major powers to abolish use of the internal combustion engine. The Bundesrat; an upper house of Germany’s parliament that represents state governments recommended that the country get rid of diesel and gasoline-powered vehicles by 2030. The action is not binding but it is surprising and important because Germany [...]

Is Green Energy Bad for the Environment?

Two recent and largely ignored news stores are raising the prospect that so called “green energy” might actually be bad for the environment. To make matters worse policy makers seem to be ignoring the important conclusions these articles point to when they discuss alternatives to windmills and solar such as Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR). [...]

Rossi Gets US Patent Possibly on Ecat

Andrea Rossi’s Leonardo Corporation has received a United States Patent that could cover his Ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). Interestingly enough the patent US 9,115,913 B1 dated August 25, 2015, does not mention LENR, cold fusion or the words Ecat or energy catalyzer. Instead it is for a device called a Fluid Heater. Andrea [...]
