    To say the least. But if it is true, it basically means cheap renewable energy. The ramifications of cheap energy are immense.

    It means more then that. It means man can make more energy then it uses which has huge implications.

    It means the middle east would no longer hold the world by the nuts.

    Anyway, if you checked out the video provided in the link the machine itself looks like an eight grade science experiment.

    The fact that the actual peer-reviewed journals have rejected their paper should tell you something. If this were true it would be ground breaking and trump any news coming out of Egypt. Cold fusion is essentially the answer to this planet's energy woes as well as a cheap way to power space travel. The fact that the US has virtually stopped funding cold fusion research and the main stream academic world has stopped research should also tell you something as well. Cold Fusion is a pipe dream.

    Just pop in a copy of that Keanu Reaves/Morgan Freeman flick Chain Reaction and continue to dream, because these douches probably don't have it.

    It comes across to me as modern day alchemy but I remain open minded enough let people more qualified in that area to make the final call on it.

    Here is a link with more info on the reactor, it seems others are looking for answers to why it works. The more headlines this grabs the more it will get dissected. One way or another the world will know what is going on here soon enough.
