In all reality, who really cares if he discovered cold fusion or not? I just care if his product will eventuall lower the cost of electricitiy in my home or not, thats all. And if so, when will it be on the market?

We are being desensitized to accept the fact that the law of conservation of energy may appear to be violated. I say appear because energy appears to come from nothing, so they get around this by calling it nuclear and providing no real explanation.
No, it's not coming from nothing. If I understand the supposed process properly, neutrons are being freed from deuterium nuclei at low temperature through electrolysis. (Okay, maybe, why not? Lowest binding energy,)* These neutrons then glom onto more massive nuclei, forming isotopes that eventually decay, releasing energy. Distilling deuterium is an extremely energy intensive process. To fill the 50 ml beaker they perform the experiment in with "heavy water", they need to start with 150 liters of water. In effect, you are storing all the energy you put into the reaction's matrix in the form of exotic isotopes. Not only is no energy being created, the process is not scalable. The Navy and NASA are interested in the possibility because, despite it not being very cost effective, it might produce a smaller, lighter weight source of power compared to conventional fuel cells; useful on satellites and submarines, but don't expect one in your home.

And it is coming to Home Depot Next year.
Since it was bought by Home Depot it will be made in China No doubt so with China's Stellar quality control standards Fukashima will look like one of the lighter moments of global contamination.edit on 12-1-2012 by VforVendettea because: (no reason given)

Rossi was like a crazy mad scientist. He knew bare minimum in physics and very little in chemistry. Yet he created cold fusion.

I hope something does come of this in whatever form. I'm easy, I know absolutely nothing of the physics involved so it will need to be a Plug and Play model for me. They might to retool the phrase though to Plug and Pay...tax levied on all machines?
In any case
Good Luck Guys!
And er...when can we expect to see the DeLorean model...?

Erm maybe you should voice that to the people writing those articles referenced.
Or maybe just bother to do some research on the matter yourself.
This is hardly the place to vent your doubts on other certified peoples and journalists findings and statements.
There are TONS of info about this, just use Google.edit on 12-1-2012 by NeoVain because: (no reason given)

A couple of questions:
Where's the peer reviewed paper on this? Scientific discoveries are published in papers.
Also I watched the video. I never saw the word fusion once, and the graphics don't show fusion, they show fission, do you know the difference? Moreover the whole video speaks in vague generalities and doesn't give any specifics.
And I noticed you added a second source, which I just read. I'm not reading that as confirmation, far from it.
and they will go up for sale this Fall

I just had a thought: couldn't this technology eventually make it's way into cars? I mean maybe I'm wrong, but it could work very simply. If the device requires a small amount of energy to turn on, a small gasoline engine or electric battery could be used to charge it. Then the device could run the vehicle indefinitely. What do you all think?
