Books about cold fusion energy
The history of cold fusion is a very interesting one, and it is one that is still continuing rapidly, so the history we have on it is still incomplete. However, it wasn’t until very recently with the experiments of Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi with their E-cat device, that we have discovered that cold fusion may not be a dead science as was previously thought. This means that all of the old books that have been written about cold fusion energy may not be as complete as the authors originally thought. Now that Rossi has brought the idea of cold fusion back to life, it is possible that many people will be writing newer books about cold fusion in order to keep up with the trend and to update the information that we have regarding this science.
Previously it was thought that cold fusion was impossible. The original experiment that led to the discovery of cold fusion was performed in 1989 by scientists Fleischmann and Pons. Trying
to learn something completely different, they performed their experiment and realized that a massive amount of energy had been created from the process, they became excited and immediately tried to duplicate the results. They were successful in a few other attempts, so they excitedly contacted the media and other scientists to share their results. In the meantime they came up with their hypotheses regarding why the energy increased and how they should theoretically be able to get it to work again.
Unfortunately, facing the scrutiny of many experts, they were told that their hypotheses were wrong, and that theoretically, their earlier success was a fluke. The methods which they described would result in a guaranteed increase in energy from the reaction involved, but the amount of energy increased could range from being a huge amount to a very miniscule amount, and there was no way to control that. In addition to this, the rate at which the energy was produced also fluctuated greatly. A reaction could take as
short as a few minutes or a few weeks to produce energy, and with their data, they were unable to predict anything regarding how the energy would increase. Because of their lack of preparation, they were written off, along with their discovery of cold fusion. They were not seen to be as revolutionary or groundbreaking as they had hoped. They had tried for much time after that to perfect their process, but
all of their efforts were futile, and they eventually fell into obscurity.
Since then, their discovery has helped to start off many other studies involving cold fusion including one by the Korean government, one by the U.S. Army, and one by a well known automotive industry. Despite the hundreds of thousands of dollars poured into this research, none were able to discover anything in the field, and were eventually shut down, or ran out of funding. Years and years of research went into cold fusion
with nothing to show for it. Scientists were still not discouraged though, they were just driven
underground. This is what a book about cold fusion may have covered until just last year when Rossi, Focardi, and friend Francesco Piantelli fell into the spotlight for their research on a type of science that they dubbed LENR which held many similarities
to cold fusion.
The device, while not proven to actually facilitate cold fusion, is still under much scientific speculation. Even so, Rossi has decided to proceed with companies, Ampenergo and Defkalion green technologies in order to produce and market his invention, which relies on a simple nickel hydrogen fusion in order to create energy. This is a new way of performing experiments associated with cold fusion and has taken the notice of scientists. If it is found to be a nuclear reaction rather than a chemical one, then Rossi may have been the first one to truly prove that cold fusion was possible. There will certainly have to be many books written about him if this does come to pass, as they will have to include the new history of cold fusion, that it is in fact possible, and took just over 20 years to really test and perfect.
