It is VERY simple, even a kid can do it. (That is, if you choose to believe the author). A guy nicknamed Chris revealed this on Usenet a few days back. Here is his post:

If you put hydrogen in a tube with palladium filament suspended inside after
a few days the filament glows red hot and after a while goes white hot and
makes a very good lamp.

If I recall, I did this experiment at a government lab, somewhere in England
in about 1969. I was severely punished for my invention and put on routine
test work.

They said my invention was "strategic" and I should say nothing for thirty

Times up!

The description of the experiment sounds plausable but the comment at the bottom makes it sound like something a school kid would write.

Sounds like a Hoax to me im sorry to say

This metal has the uncommon ability to absorb up to 900 times its own volume of hydrogen at room temperatures. It is thought that this possibly forms palladium hydride (PdH2) but it is not yet clear if this is a true chemical compound.[3]

When palladium has absorbed large amounts of hydrogen, it can swell up, like a sponge full of water, visible to the naked eye.[citation needed]

Looks like palladium and hydrogen are pretty well understood this far, me thinks a kid has just made something up from a couple of interesting facts.

Mind you this does tie in.

Cold Fusion
The theory of cold fusion is that when hydrogen is adsorbed into palladium
metal the hydrogen atoms get mixed with the electron "gas" in the metal so
that the protons are able to pack close together so that meson tunnelling
occurred. This makes a proton-proton atom (it is at a lower energy level
than two separated protons) which then emits a positron to form deuterium
which sits at a lower energy level level than the two hydrogen nuclei it
came from.

But it still seems like someone is just picking up on others work for a bit of false glory

Ok, I'll bite. What was the fusion product - Helium..?? If so how much..?? What was the purity of the Pd..?? What about neutron counts, etc. to prove it was actually a fusion reaction..??

I'm afraid no one knows.

until sum 1 tries this and posts it as a youtube vid, dead in the water. Prove us wrong o' brave ones.

which then emits a positron to form deuterium

Erm? how does emitting a "Positron" (which is the 'anti-matter particle'-, with opposite spin to the electron) suddenly equal "Deuterium",??... When it is an extra **NEUTRON** (coupled with a Proton) that is needed to create this?!

Have i missed something?

Here is a one foot piece of palladium wire for 85$

You will need a test tube with a cork, a vaccum pump, and a cylinder of hydrogen gas.

Shouldnt be too hard to test. If successful you will also need several lawyers and a good bodygaurd.
