Another Indian newspaper article looks at the state of LENR/Cold Fusion research and predicts that it won’t be too long until the technology is developed to a point where it will be able to provide power for domestic purposes at very low cost.
The article was published today (Mar 26, 2018) in The Pioneer and is titled “Cold Fusion to Power Households” — link here: http://www.dailypioneer.com/nation/cold-fusion-to-power-households.html
Here is an excerpt:
After 30 years, Japanese scientists have come out with reports that substantiate observations made during the cold fusion experiments. A research group including scientists of Toyota, Nissan Motor, Universities of Tohoku, Kobe, Kyushu and Nagoya have found that heat energy was released at room temperature. Professor Emeritus Akito Takahashi, who led the teams has an answer for questions raised by scientists like late Dr Raj. “It could be multi-body fusion occurring at an extremely small space,” said he.
Eminent cardiologist Dr B M Hegde has already pointed out that transmutation of potassium to sodium happening in human body is akin to release of heat energy during cold fusion. The research group expects that it was possible to generate 1 kilowatt of heat, which is two orders of magnitude larger than the present reactions, by improving the structure of the sample, increasing the amount reactant, devising changes to the temperature conditions.
One of the experts consulted for this article is Indian nuclear phyiscs Mahadeva Srinivasan, who was the former Head of Neutron Physics Division at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in Mumbai who is now a private LENR consultant.
He was recently interviewed by Ruby Carat of Cold Fusion Now for her series of podcasts talking to people working in the LENR field.
He told Ruby that he has been trying almost single-handedly trying revive LENR research in LENR after Cold Fusion had been largely dismissed by the scientific community. He has focused his efforts recently on trying to interest members of the current BJP Indian government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and has had some success with this approach, with limited funding being made available from the Ministry of Renewable Energy to get four LENR research groups started in India. He tells Ruby that three out of four of the groups are currently working on Parkhamov-style experiments with nickel powder and hydrogen, but expects them to try with deuterium also.
