Sonofusion has long been held as a myth. It is a process that has been attacked worldwide as improbable. Fusion is the process that powers our sun.
Sonofusion offers to duplicate that process by collapsing sound induced bubbles. The method used to measure or quantify varying sonofusion processes
have used an external neutron source, but because a neutron detector was used to measure the reaction process, some argue that neutron from the source
negated the results.
It seems Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Purdue University, and the Russian Academy of Sciences all have been able to produce viable results without
using an external neutron source by varying the liquid components.
A team of researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Purdue University, and the Russian Academy of Sciences has used sound waves to induce
nuclear fusion without the need for an external neutron source.
"The telltale sign that fusion has occurred is the production of neutrons. Earlier experiments were criticized because the researchers used an
external neutron source to produce the bubbles, and some have suggested that the neutrons detected as evidence of fusion might have been left over
from this external source.

Is this good news? Yes. Is this the final answer? No. But, real research like this will open many doors and make our people less dependent on
fossil fuels. Many have to overcome the research hurdles of popular belief that such processes are even possible.
For three universities to make the same reproduction claims should settle many arguments. I believe this is a research field that should be getting
more attention and certainly more research dollars.
I recall the movie “Chain Reaction” with Morgan Freeman and Kenau Reeves. This was a sonofusion reaction process using water. Could this be real
after all? Let’s hope.
