This book also hit a personal note for me. Krivit wrote about a number of the researchers applying for patents. In the 1990’s, as part of my job as a document classification reviewer, I spent time at the US Patent and Trademark Office, reviewing patent applications that were in nuclear areas to determine if they needed to be held under a secrecy order. (I have a degree in Nuclear Engineering and worked for one of the Federal agencies.) I reviewed a number of patent applications that were for so-called "cold fusion" processes and this brought back memories for me.
difficulty facing any challenge to the existing paradigms of "establishment" science. Highly recommended.
A theory called the Widom Larsen Process seems to explain the energy from nuclear transformations.
However Krivitt cannot claim total journalistic detachment, as he was involved in the history, as one of his headings ('I Killed Cold Fusion') attests.

Krivit has done a huge amount of exploration in the field of LENR which was initially confused with a form of fusion, cold fusion.Read more
