Prof. Cardone states at the end of the demonstration:
“The conclusion to be drawn is we applied mechanical energy into a liquid, the liquid temperature rose less than the amount of mechanical energy we applied. It produced a substance that is not the fluid of the beginning. As chemists recognized it sticks to walls while mercury is noted for not sticking to walls. We lack a part of energy and there is a lack of heat. We assert that this heat has been used for this transmutation, and that there is no ionizing radiation either before or during or after. We can only conclude that it’s a new kind of transmutation because it contradicts the known laws of physics: when I apply energy to a fluid I expect at least to see it evaporate, not to produce a solid substance. And this concludes the demonstration, it is a new kind of reaction.”
UPDATE: Thanks to Curbina for pointing out this paper titled “Nuclear metamorphosis in mercury” written by Cardone et al, which provides more details about the experiment shown above.
Here is the abstract:
The conditions of local Lorentz invariance (LLI) breakdown, obtained during neutron emission from a sonicated cylindrical bar of AISI 304 steel, were reproduced in a system made of a mole of mercury. After 3 min, a part of the liquid transformed into solid state material, in which isotopes were found with both higher and lower atomic mass with respect to the starting material. Changes in the atomic weight without production of gamma radiation and radionuclides are made possible by deformed space-time reactions.
