Hello Terry, I'm still doubtful about the Rossi claims, due to the enormous confusion about the output water-steam flows, and the weak claims about gamma detection.
I am not a doctrinaire skeptic, but as a scientific layman serve as a pragmatic skeptic about the simpler aspects of cold fusion research, while hoping for major benign advances. I am pleased by the overall courteous and thoughtful discussions. I was perplexed to not get any responses whatsoever from Earthtech, so assume they are operating on their own track re surprising, fast-moving matters that impinge on world security. Rossi has not released any details re his "explosions". Surely by now many teams worldwide are running their own experiments and checking out all possible leads of information. Amateur networks can contribute by spreading information as widely as possible. The list of elements and their isotopes that might be catalysts may be only a few dozen. The most recent Rossi comments include the claim that the half-lives of radioactives in his cells are less than a few minutes. However, I find it easy to imagine that every facet of this complex drama could be disinformation from multiple players with different agendas. The article on Wikipedia re BlackLight Power shows clearly that 50-100 million dollars can be attracted in two decades by a small scientific cult. I note that it's been 2 months since the private demo by Rossi on December 16, and he published provocative patents and reports in the last 2 years.
