by Steven B. Krivit, Fusion Fiasco Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fusion Fiasco books, Written for scientists and non-scientists alike, this book tells the behind-the-scenes story of the 1989-1990 fusion fiasco, one of the most divisive scientific controversies in recent history. It explains how credible experimental low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research emerged from the erroneous idea of "cold fusion."

by Bart Simon, Undead Science Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Undead Science books, Undead Science examines the story of cold fusion, one of the most publicized scientific controversies of the late twentieth century. In 1989 two Utah-based “discoverers” claimed to have developed an electrochemical process that produced more energy than was required to initiate the process. Finding no other explanation, the researchers described their findings as some kind of nuclear reaction. If they were correct, an important new energy source would have been found. Objections surfaced quickly, and in the year that followed, hundreds of scientists worldwide attempted to reproduce these results. Most, though not all, failed, and the controversy became increasingly antagonistic. By 1990, general scientific opinion favored the skeptics and experimental work went into a steep decline. Nevertheless, many scientists continue to do research in what Bart Simon calls this “undead science.” Simon argues that in spite of widespread skepticism in the scientific community, there has been a continued effort to make sense of the controversial phenomenon. Researchers in well-respected laboratories continue to produce new and rigorous work. In this manner, cold fusion research continues to exist long after the controversy has subsided, even though the existence of cold fusion is circumscribed by the widespread belief that the phenomenon is not real. The survival of cold fusion signals the need for a more complex understanding of the social dynamics of scientific knowledge making, the boundaries between experts, intermediaries, and the lay public, and the conceptualization of failure in the history of science and technology.
by John Robert Huizenga, Cold Fusion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cold Fusion books, Professor Huizenga, Co-Chairman of the U.S. Department of Energy Cold Fusion Panel that investigated the claims of Pons and Fleischmann--the scientists behind the ill-fated "cold fusion" experiments at the University of Utah in 1989-- here documents the entire fascinating saga and provides a careful and thorough study of the controversy that followed. The factual, hardhitting account concludes with a discussion of the lessons to be learned from the episode and the implications for the proper conduct of science. In this new paperback edition, the author has taken the opportunity to bring the story of cold fusion up-to-date. This definitive account, will interest all scientists and historians of science, as well as general readers interested in the issues of experimental science and ethical conduct.

by Steven B. Krivit, The Rebirth Of Cold Fusion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Rebirth Of Cold Fusion books, The Rebirth of Cold Fusion, by Steven B. Krivit and Nadine Winocur Psy.D., explains the science and significance of this new field of energy research. Written for the general public, the book provides an excellent foundation for anyone wishing to learn more about this complex science story and controversy. Reputable scientists from around the world consider cold fusion to be a fascinating new field of scientific study. In 2004, the U.S. Department of Energy cold fusion review indicated that cold fusion continues to show promise as a potential new energy source, free of nuclear waste and harmful emissions. "The Rebirth of Cold Fusion fills an evident and urgent need to inform the scientific and lay public about this topic, which has been so massively misunderstood," Dr. Martin Fleischmann, co-discoverer of cold fusion, said. "Krivit and Winocur have done sterling work on this." The book explains the past, present, and possible future ramifications of cold fusion research and technology. "The Rebirth of Cold Fusion gives much insight into how the 'due processes of science' came up with a decision that now appears to have been precisely the wrong one," commented Dr. Brian Josephson, a Nobel prize winner in physics who has analyzed cold fusion research.The book contrasts the 50-year hot fusion research program, paid for with tens of billions of taxpayer dollars, to other competitive, promising and much less-expensive alternatives, which have been put aside as unworthy of investigation.?The future is almost unlimited," world-renowned futurist Sir Arthur C. Clarke wrote in the book's foreword. "It can be the end of the fossil fuel age and the end, incidentally, of many of our worries about global pollution and global warming. This book strengthens my hope."
by G. M. McCracken, Fusion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fusion books, Unraveling the role of fusion in the universe has taken almost a century since Einstein's proof of the equivalence of energy and matter in 1905. The discovery that fusion reactions are responsible for the building of the light elements in the "Big Bang" and the subsequent development of the heavier elements in the stars and in exploding supernovae is one of the field's most exciting successes. In this engaging book, McCracken and Stott reexamine these discoveries in astrophysics and discuss the possibility that fusion reactions are not only our sun's source of power, but may also be induced for our use on earth. * Details the initial discovery of nuclear fusion, all related research, and today's concern over future energy supply * Examines current attempts to create nuclear fusion here on earth * Enhanced with color illustrations and examples * Provides a non-technical treatment of fusion using straightforward language * Includes technical notes for aspiring physicists
