Tech: Wired article about cold fusion
Sat, 4 Dec 1999 12:37:51 EST

Among Gina's most recent offerings was this link to a Wired article about the current state of cold fusion research:

I recommend it. It's a very well written piece of "science anthropological journalism" about the history and current state of the cold fusion research community. I'm not competent to judge the technical merits of anything that's described in the article, but WOULD be curious to see the reactions of folks better able to assess the current state of the art described there.

One thing that was a little disturbing about the article was the account of how the scientific and R&D community seems set against even a moderately funded investigation of what is an undeniably interesting and mysterious physical phenomenon. What's described in the Wired article seems well worth looking into.
