    Cold Fusion: The Continuing Mystery In March of 1989, a discovery was made that rocked the scientific world. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischman had announced that they were able to create and sustain a cold fusion process. After intense media attention, and corresponding interest in future test, the subject seemed to have faded away. Future tests proved inconclusive, and when the quick promise of easy energy didn’t materialize, most quickly forgot the subject. Little is said about the continuing

    Cold Fusion Research Paper As the world becomes more aware of the growing need for a more abundant energy supply, one energy source has been swept under the carpet and virtually ignored. This source is cold fusion. Cold fusion is: “A reaction that occurs under certain conditions in supersaturated metal hydrides (metals with lots of hydrogen or heavy hydrogen dissolved in them). It produces excess heat, helium, and a very low level of neutrons. In some experiments the host metal has been transmuted

    after reading several, I still had no luck in finding an article I was passionate about. This was when I came across an article regarding the beneficial possibilities of cold fusion nuclear reactions. I knew about nuclear power plants and how they used nuclear fission to produce power, conversely I had no idea what cold fusion was. I decided to delve further,

    There are some inventions that made a remarkable mark on human societies. One of them being the atomic bomb. The atomic bomb created by nuclear fission a reaction in which a heavy nucleus splits spontaneously or on impact with another particle, with the release of energy. It was invented by Otto Hahn and his assistant Fritz Strassmann in December 17, 1938. Then with the help of Robert Oppenheimer, David Bohm, Leo Szilard, Eugene Wigner, Otto Frisch, Rudolf Peierls, Felix Bloch, Niels Bohr, Emilio

    Council Today I am writing you a report analysing the viability of the use of Nuclear Fusion as a energy source in your community. I will analyse the feasibility of this kind of nuclear power in your community by firstly explaining what nuclear fusion is and how it works. I will then use calculations to estimate how this new energy produced could compare to the amount of energy used by the city currently. Nuclear Fusion occurs when two small nuclei fuse to form a larger nucleus (this is not to be confused
