MIT Announces Hot Fusion Breakthrough

Researchers at MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center have built a reactor capable of generating temperatures four times hotter than the center of the sun. They were able to do that by doubling the pressure at which plasma is pumped into the reactor, and generating 300 trillion fusion reactions a second, Silicon Republic’s Colm Gorey reported.

This breaks a world record and brings the center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) closer to its goal of building a commercial hot fusion reactor. The Center’s Director Professor Dennis Whyte thinks such reactors might up and running and feeding electricity into the grid within 15 years.

CBC Reports on Cold Fusion and Andrea Rossi

A major North American media outlet; the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), has reported on cold fusion or low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). The piece by Torah Kachur also mentioned Andrea Rossi and e-cat.

This is the first time a major media outlet has reported on Rossi’s work in a while. Kachur at least is fair she refuses to engage in the childish accusations of fraud and simply points out that Rossi’s claims have not verified.

She also makes a statement that explains why physicists avoid LENR like the plague.
