And 11 years later the paper was still unpublished and Fermi an unknown?
I don't think so.

It took them a while, governments have never been very bright, but even
the Japanese have wised up and given up on cold fusion. Even The University
of Utah closed its cold fusion lab and I can't think of another, of course universities
have no power to tell all their tenured professors how to spend their spare time,
and every institution has its nuts.

It would have been great if cold fusion worked but it doesn't so let's move on.
