The Martin Fleischman Memorial Project (MFMP) has received more of the the wires that are at the heart of Francesco Celani’s low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) devices. The electrically heated and chemically treated wires form the basis of Celani’s cells.
The MFMP is hoping to detect excess heat in them and achieve a low energy nuclear reaction. This can apparently be detected by gamma ray emissions. The project is using an approach it calls live open science in which it shares all the information it has with everybody in order to achieve more wide spread results. The project has had some setbacks lately dealing with choppy and erroneous data that forced its members to rerun some experiments in France.
Hot Fusion Heats Up
The race to develop hot fusion is also heating up. World Nuclear News reported that the German Wendelstein 7-X reactor passed its first test by producing hot plasma for the first time on February 4, Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel started the experiment by pushing a button. This could be first step to making enough plasma for a sustained fusion reaction.
