    Cold fusion article: We’re entering the market launch phase, Defkalion is loading up the science, National Instruments is positioning for market share, partners of Mr. Rossi are applying some corporate level conduct boundaries, the science is being explored worldwide.

    Market launch? Pthththt. $5 says there will be no products launched within 5 years.

    Do you keep posting these cold fusion links as a joke? From what I’ve seen, they claim they only need external power during startup, but they leave it plugged in to a power source the whole time. This is, to say the least, suspicious: http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/files/2011/12/Power-Magic-1.jpeg
