Cold Fusion Lecture in Melfa, Virginia

The following announcement has been posted on the Cape Charles Wave online newspaper published in Cape Charles, Virginia.

“Cold Fusion: Oddity or Odyssey?” is the subject of a free 90-minute seminar 12:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, in the Eastern Shore Community College Lecture Hall, 29300 Lankford Hwy., Melfa, sponsored by Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

“Josh Hall will discuss history and developments since the startling announcement by Fleischmann and Pons 25 years ago that they had achieved fusion in a test tube.

“Hall studied and worked in computer science and nanotechnology. In 1989, as a graduate student, he was one of the propagators of the preprint in the Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry of the famous Fleischmann/Pons paper.”

I can’t find much information about Josh Hall, but the fact that he was involved in the preprint of the Fleischmann and Pons paper indicates that he could provide an interesting perspective on the subject. Here’s a  description about the Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia: “The Science and Philosophy Seminar is an informally organized group of adults that meets more or less regularly to explore and discuss a wide array of topics, ranging from philosophical speculation to scientific research.”

UPDATE: Thanks to Josh Hall for commenting below and providing a link to his web site: There’s a lot of interesting information regarding his interests and multiple publications here.

Do we have any ECW readers in the area who might attend and report?
