2012 has seen a lot of progress and news in low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) particularly important have been the revelations about Brillouin, Defkalion, NASA and George Miley and the public demonstrations of the Celani and NANOR reactors. Many of us are wondering if 2013 is going to be the year of cold fusion or the New Fire or not?
My personal guess is that 2013 like 2012 will see a lot of small steps toward the final goal but no Big Breakthrough. Instead we’ll get a lot of slow and steady work towards the final objective. We’ll probably hear about a number of new LENR work much of it associated it with the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project.
We’ll probably hear more pronouncements from Andrea Rossi who has promised to make a third party report about his ecat device available in February. Since Rossi has had to redesign his device several times my guess is that he isn’t as close to a working device as he has claimed, although he might actually have a hot ecat.
