I was pleased to see that Salt Lake City-based KSL TV news has covered the 25th anniversary of the Pons-Fleischmann announcement in its home town at the University of Utah with a news report that discusses about the ongoing activity in cold fusion research. A story by Ed Yeats features comments by Michael McKubre at SRI International who defends the work of Pons and Fleischmann, and says that he expects cold fusion products to be used in commercial settings within five years.
Here’s the TV report:
It’s good to see a story that talks about the continuing story, rather than the focusing on the ‘failure’ of Pons and Fleischmann. It seemed to me like Yeats and the KSL news anchors felt a sense of pride that the cold fusion story was not dead, and that at some point there could be public vindication for Pons and Fleischmann.
