Heavy Watergate: The War Against Cold Fusion

  • Published 2 years ago

On March 23, 1989, respected chemists, Dr. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleishman made an announcement that shook the world of science.

Desktop experiments with heavy water, a renewable resource available in the water of oceans, produced large amounts of thermal energy. The proper name of “cold fusion”, challenged this development many basic scientific concepts.
In response, a group of physicists powerful, heavily dependent on government funding for hot fusion research, level an unprecedented smear campaign against Pons, Fleishman and science of cold fusion. It was the discovery of fire water is too good to be true? Or was the discovery of the millennium?
