Navy scientist announces possible cold fusion reactions
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Houston Chronicle (Houston's leading newspaper)

A U.S. Navy researcher announced today that her lab has produced significant new results that indicate cold fusion-like reactions. If the work by analytical chemist Pamela Mosier-Boss and her colleagues is confirmed, it could open the door to a cheap, near-limitless reservoir of energy. Devising a fusion-based source of energy on Earth has long been a clean-energy holy grail of physicists. A small group of scientists has [tried] to produce fusion reactions at low temperatures. If such experiments did produce fusion reactions, they would generate highly energetic neutrons as a byproduct. These are what Mosier-Boss says her San Diego-based group has found. If you have fusion going on, then you have to have neutrons, she said. But we do not know if fusion is actually occurring. It could be some other nuclear reaction. Todays announcement is based partly on research published by Mosier-Boss group last year in the journal Naturwissenschaften. The announcement may turn heads, given its stage at the American Chemical Societys big meeting and the fact that the organization promoted it to science journalists in advance. Its big, said Steven Krivit, founder of the New Energy Times publication, which has tracked cold fusion developments for two decades. What were talking about may be more than anybody actually expected, he said. Were talking about a new field of science thats a hybrid between chemistry and physics.

Many highly esteemed scientists have repeatedly demonstrated the reality of cold fusion, only to have their research sometimes ruthlessly shut down.
