‘Dusty plasmas’ (DPs) are described and discussed in the contemporary context of LENR systems, with a look at the history of their study which embraces both terrestrial and cosmological examples.

Langmuir in the 1920’s first reported his observation of the creation of dusty Tungsten plasma in a discharge tube containing inert gas. Langmuir’s suspicion at the time that DPs would capture the interest of physicists was eventually proven to be correct. There was exponential growth in journal publications about DPs between 1981 and 2003/4, since when they have continued to appear in healthy numbers. This is because studies of fast ions with high energies compared to ‘background’ plasma ions play a key role in the investigation of both deep space plasmas and in controlled fusion research.

The potential similarities between the inner environment of a working LENR reactor and the hot, dusty, and highly energetic plasmas found in the atmospheres of Brown Dwarf stars, our sun, and the planet Saturn are described, with a view to considering the electromagnetic approach to LENR, with the aim of enhancing the outcomes of current replication attempts.
