The possibility of a desktop generator capable of nuclear fusion has recently come to light with the research of a scientist named Rusi Taleyarkhan.
In a documentary being aired on the Science channel called An Experiment to Save the World, the bubble fusion experiment of Taleyarkhan is discussed
in detail, along with the reaction of the scientific community.
Just recently, on the 28th of August, 2008, Taleyarkhan was stripped of his professorship at Purdue University based on allegations of misconduct that
were upheld. Out of twelve allegations, only two were upheld. According to a Purdue University press release, the US Dept. of Naval Research, the
"funding agency" in this matter, has accepted the report and referred the allegations to Purdue.
Taleyarkhan's first experiment and a follow-up were published by major, reputable scientific journals. Attempts to duplicate the results of his
experiment have yet proved unsuccessful, but before any attempts were made, Taleyarkhan's findings were the source of extraordinary controversy.
Let's pause to talk about the implications of his experiment. This technology, if it actually works, would bring the power of the stars to a
reatively small desktop generator! So there are profound implications to this, like solving our energy crisis for one. But also consider that such
technology could potentially benefit billions of people on our planet - including third world countries. Essentially it could tip the balance of power
away from the select few and into the hands of many.
It is no secret to many of us on this board that the US government has tight reigns on the prevailing science of the day. Its scientific knowledge
probably exceeds everything else by at least a couple of decades. Is it then no suprise that the US Dept. of Naval Research was so involved in this?
Could the powers-that-be have orchestrated this maligning of Dr. Taleyarkhan? It appears to me to be a very distinct possibility. Look at the number
of allegations - twelve in total. Like I said, only two stuck, but think about it for a minute: if there were only two allegations, and they stuck,
then you've made your case 100%. Two out of twelve allegations being upheld means that only 17% of their case was satisfied, or it could mean that
83% of their case was based on false allegations, or at the very least unprovable allegations. It smells of an attack.
What's really important though? Scientists have tried to duplicate Dr. Taleyarkhan's experiments to no avail. Did they have an agenda to disprove
Dr. Taleyarkhan? It's possible. But that's not what's important - trying to duplicate or disprove an experiment. In many areas of science it is,
but in this case the main focus should be on trying to validate the experiment by harnessing the energy provided for by the suspected nuclear
fusion. The results and the data provided so far are compelling enough to warrant taking this experiment to its ultimate conclusion - to its
fruition. Furthermore, doing so is warranted by our current energy crisis. That's the true test, is it not? That's at the heart of the matter -
getting usable energy out of this thing - and I haven't heard one other person mention that in this entire issue. They're too busy trying to
discredit this man, or so it seems. What do you think?
Do a little research, let me know. I appreciate your responses and your attention to this matter.
Your friend in truth,
