LENR Lecture to be Held at the University of Northern Iowa

Thanks to Andreas Moraitis for pointing out this press release about an event to be held at the University of Northen Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa on March 10th:

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — The University of Northern Iowa will host a lecture on low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) at 7 p.m., Monday, March 10, in the Center for Energy and Environmental Education Auditorium.

Tom Wind, an Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer, will provide information on this relatively new technology. LENR allows controlled fusion of hydrogen into helium in small modular reactors that can fit on a tabletop. This results in thermal energy with no radiation dangers, radioactive byproducts or combustion of fossil fuels, at a much lower cost than traditional fossil fuels.

This lecture is sponsored by the Recycling and Reuse Technology Transfer Center (RRTTC). For more information, contact Jennifer Bruss, RRTTC program and community outreach coordinator, at 319-273-3689 or jennifer.bruss@uni.edu.

    I love it, “Tom Wind”.

    On the serious side, notice that there aren’t any apologies like “some people don’t think that it is real” or “mainstream physicists say that it is impossible” and that kind of pointless garbage.

    Also notice that we are not only not alone, we have lots of friends. There are lots and lots of people out “there” who like LENR+ and support it.

    I am really quite enthused about this announcment. I like it. I like it a lot. (:->)

    For those interested, I just asked the question of Jennifer Bruss on whether this lecture will be streamed over the internet. If the answer is Yes, I will post the information.

      Thanks, Buck.

    I am looking forward to an LENR conference or otherwise get-together somewhere in southern Colorado.

    Sorry Frank for spamming with this off topic stuff, but I thought it was very interesting:

    Run into a transmutation article in KitCo Tech Metals Insider:
    http://bit.ly/1egYTUQ
    Lewis Larsen (Lattice Energy LLC) is cited extensively about the possibilities of transmutations and LENR.

      This is where the Widom-Larsen Theory came from. This is one of the Theories NASA Zawodny and Bushnell have cited.

  • friendlyprogrammer

    This is awesome news. Every new University standing behind LENR is good news. I think we will find it is just one guy who reads fringe science surrounded by a dozen dinosaurs still claiming it’s impossible, and less than 20 people will attend.
    BUT it is still nice

      I love your use of the word “dinosaurs”.

    I just received the following response from Jennifer Bruss.

    “We will be taping it and have it posted and available for viewing online
    later. We will send out an email when that become available. Thank you.”

    • ecatworld

      Thanks very much for the info. I am planning on being there — it will be interesting to see who attends. It doesn’t seem to be a University sponsored event — more of a community lecture on an environmental theme.

    One would have thought the mainstream media would be all over the announcement of the LENR 101 course at MIT. Of course I am delighted another University is taking up the LENR banner, but I am not holding my breath, waiting for the mainstream media to publicize it.

    • bachcole

      The first time that I heard about an LENR something gathering at MIT by Peter Hagelstein more than a year ago, I assumed that Peter was merely giving a course in the scientific method and how we can learn from failure. I didn’t really think that it was because someone at MIT actually believed in the REALITY of LENR. So, be patient. The damn dam has not yet broken, but I guarantee that it will. The juggernaut rolls on.

      “juggernaut” comes from the Hindu celebration of them putting a statue of Krishna on a cart, and they called it “the juggernaut cart festival”. The cart with Krishna’s statue on it would be very heavy. The cart would be paraded through the streets with celebrants throwing flowers at the cart and singing (that would be us the peanut gallery). Occasionally some very devout celebrants would throw themselves under the wheels of the cart and get crushed to death occasionally (that would be the skeptopaths and stubborn utility owners and others). Of course, the guys getting crushed by this cart while be the disbelievers, not the devout believers. But otherwise, I see it as an excellent allegory. We the peanut gallery throwing flowers at the cart don’t actually move the cart forward. The juggernaut is rolling forward no matter what we do.

      And, since I see the hand of God in this the development of LENR+, again this analog works very well for me. The cart is coming, folks. It doesn’t matter if we cheer it or ignore it or throw ourselves under it’s wheels. It will just keep on rolling.
