The Wiki entry for muon catalyzed fusion has been updated to include the new 
advancement of Norront Fusion of Norway, using the techniques of Dr Leif 
Holmlid of Sweden to produce muons easily and cheaply without the requirement 
of a beam line.
Even though almost no one (that is, no one who needs to raise VC funding) wants 
to be identified with "cold fusion" these days - clearly what we have in the 
Norront system should be identified as a version of LENR. 

Thirty+ years ago, P&F specifically rejected the notion that muons were 
involved in their technique, and perhaps they were correct on that - but they 
did not know of the big advance of Holmlid which suggests that it is far easier 
to produce muons than anyone ever expected. 

Had the "Letts/Cravens effect" gotten more traction, it clearly bridges the gap 
between what Norront is doing and what P&F were doing. I wonder if anyone is 
still pursuing the Letts/Cravens technique? At one time, it was rumored that 
Industrial Heat (Dewey Weaver) was providing some funds for this work - but 
with no hint of success. Norront, on the other hand, is on the verge of 
producing a commercial unit which ironically looks like Rossi's shipping 
container fusion source. 

Too bad IH did not get any return for all the risks they took, but who knows - 
maybe they have invested in Norront as well.
