Cold Fusion

Cold Fusion is a hypothesized type of nuclear reaction that would occur at, or near, room temperature. Interaction of hydrogen or deuterium gas with metals such as palladium, Zirconium, Nickel is claimed to set off a nuclear reaction at low temperature releasing energy. In 1989 Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons reported that their apparatus had produced anomalous heat or excess heat. They asserted ..
