My Org's Forging Division got govt. funding ca. 1990 to carry out a few experiments wherein they took a large mounted 5 ton block of iron and stuck it into a bath of DCl and TCl. The DCl &TCl containing Acid was supposed to make the nascent T/D diffuse into the Fe-matrix... based on the classical Hydrogen embrittlement phenomenon. They then made the block vibrate, Tesla style, & hoped that certain resonance spots within the block would create pressures momentarily high enough to induce fusion... > While on the job, OSHA came by, unexpected, & ordered us to shut down for not having (neutron) radiation permits. ... years later, I ran across one of the dudes involved in the project which continued in another lab, and he said: "It went **black**.. We got neutrons but the iron block fractured, from/by hair cracks preventing the needed resonance time to have any meaningful, repeatable power production. Thereafter we re-applied, remolded the 5 ton block and drilled a series of rows'n columns of holes into it and filled them with T/D Cl.

Long before Pons & F duplicated my experiments, And no I won't tell you what I used, at least not now. But it is cool that they are moving in that direction. --------- I found the effect purely by accident, trying electrolysis on many things, and noticed the radiation. Sort of scared me, and I did have no explanation. I dunno about that pressure theory you mention. Some years before P&F I mentioned it to my boss.. He asked" Why did you not mention it when you were in (sort of CERN thing)?". My reply was "They would never believe or accept it". And then some years later EXACTLY that happened. The brain dead would not notice a car hitting them if it did not fit their 'standard model'. P&F got ridiculed.
Later I realized what it was that I did right, it was very obvious, and pure luck in a way.
 Is not that the old way of thinking? I have mentioned it many times here, if you cannot do it with those tiny particles on the desktop, then you cannot do it with a machine the size of the universe. > hanson wrote: re:  , ... well that is a philosophical statement.
