Over some time some, The MFMP has been testing various second generation Cold Fusion systems, trying to replicate their effect, to provide evidence of Cold Fusion being real (or not real).
During February, the group believes to have finally seen some positive data speaking in favour of the claims of scientists such as Piantelli, Rossi, Parkhomov and Celani. Our friend Bob Greenyer from MFMP has posted a video, speaking about the recent announcements made by their research group, based on data collected in a Dog Bone Reactor.

Some of these new conclusions behind the workings of these technologies has started quite a bit of a debate on various web pages and communities. I think the dust has not really settled yet but hope these observations will lead to further experimentation. In order to help other groups perform the same experiment, MFMP has published the recipe online.
In the past, the field of Cold Fusion has struggled much with repeatability, meaning that two identical tests often produce two different results. We have also spoken about how some researchers sometimes goes years without seeing excess heat, so for these reasons I’m a bit worried that such a complex recipe could be found rather hard to replicate successfully. Nevertheless, it is a recipe that has at some point given positive results, so let’s hope for the best, and that we can soon have more data.
Prepare thoroughly (Ni + LiAlH4 + Li)
1. Bake Ni
2. Reduce Ni
3. Hydrogenate Ni
4. Mix: Ni + LiAlH4 + Li
5. Bake and vac reactor, add Nickel, vac warm, add H2, Vac
6. Heat to above Mossbauer determined Ni Debye (say 135C), pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
7. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
8. Heat slowly to as close to Ni Curie as comfortable (Say 340C), pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
9. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
10. Slowly lower temp to above highest known Ni Debye (Say 220C), pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
11. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 1bar abs.
12. Go as fast as possible through Ni Curie
13. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
14. Cycle through 500C internal, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
15. Hold, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
16. Raise internal temperature to over 1200, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
17. Drop to around 1000 and hold, pressure regulated to approx 0.5bar abs.
18. Raise internal temperature to near boiling point of Lithium
The Hot Fusion community gets billions of dollars in funding from taxpayers.
Cold Fusion does not!
I’d like to point out that this research and experimentation costs money.
Without donations from followers and enthusiasts, these data could not have been collected.
