Italian Inventors Enter ‘Cold Fusion’ Arena

JEANE MANNING

An “Energy Catalyzer” is the new item on the energy frontier at the time of this writing. Italian engineer Andrea A. Rossi and Professor Sergio Focardi of the University of Bologna announced a technology for a reaction that produces excess heat—at low cost and in quantities that would make it commercially useful. It involves a catalytic reaction be­tween nickel, hydrogen, and some secret elements, but they avoid calling it “cold fusion.” At this time it looks like the Italians do have a viable technology that…

Challenging the Consensus

BY J. DOUGLAS KENYON

In 2005 Inner Traditions/Bear published Forbidden History, a collection of Atlantis Rising articles dealing with pre­historic technologies, extraterrestrial intervention and the suppressed origins of civilization. The book did so well— becoming one of the publisher’s bestselling titles and already translated into several languages—that in 2006 we all decided to do it again. With the publication of Forbidden Religion that spring, Atlantis Rising offered another collection of penetrating articles by some of the best writers in the business dealing with the suppressed heresies of the west….

Mammoths Blasted from Outer Space Recently reexamined bison remains and wooly mammoth tusks in both Siberia and Alaska bear unmistakable evi­dence of being blasted by debris from outer space. In a report, which the BBC called “Startling”, to a November meet­ing of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, scientists offered detailed evidence that holes in the animal bones were caused by high-speed collisions with tiny fragments coming from meteoric impact explosions of some kind. The fragments are magnetic and made of a combination of…

Lost Ark of the Covenant Said Found in Zimbabwe Museum Could the lost Ark of the Covenant, or what’s left of it, be sitting on a dusty museum shelf in Harare Zimbabwe? That is the claim of University of London professor and Indiana Jones wannabe Tudor Parfitt. But unlike the cavernous warehouse scene at the end of the Steven Spielberg epic where the Ark is seemingly lost once again, the professor says he knows precisely where the real thing is located. It’s called the ngoma…

Cold Fusion’s Quiet Resurrection The cold fusion news from Italy continues to be hot, though you wouldn’t know it from the mainstream American media. The so-called E-Cat technology of inventor Andrea Rossi passed another major milestone on October 28, 2011. Though some complained that the test was flawed, it still demonstrated that the technology was valid. In Bologna the new test was, by all accounts, successful in demonstrating that the E-Cat works, though not in produc­ing as much power as some would want. According to…

JAPANESE TO BUILD SPACE ELEVATOR In the legendary Indian rope trick, a fakir, would climb a rope seemingly anchored to a point in the sky. Jack in the Beanstalk had a similar idea. Now one spacefaring nation plans to carry out its own version of the mythical trick but on a much bigger scale. The Japanese have announced that they have set aside $10 billion to develop a space elevator. The notion originally conceived by the Russians involves putting a space station in geosynchronous orbit…

COLD FUSION ENTERS THE MAINSTREAM If the late Dr. Eugene Mallove did not already feel vindicated, he certainly must by now. In whatever world, the for­mer cold fusion crusader and Atlantis Rising columnist now resides, he has doubtless gotten the word that his once reviled Cold Fusion—now called LENR (for Low Energy Nuclear Reactions)—about which he wrote a Pulitzer-nominated book, Fire from Ice, has now gone mainstream. No less an edifice of orthodox science than the American Chemical Society, meeting in San Francisco in March,…

Air Force Pays to Search for ET on Kepler-22b With the recent discovery by NASA’s Kepler space telescope of Earth-size planets in orbit around distant stars, the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence, better known as SETI, has received a new lease on life, but not for the reasons you might think. It turns out that the U.S. Air Force’s Space Command has decided that SETI would be a good outfit to check and see if there are any intelligent radio signals emanating from the newly…

New-Energy Scientists Get New Respect

By Jeane Manning

When given $300 for an airline ticket anywhere, what kind of woman chooses to attend a conference of the American Chemical Society? And she’s not even a chemist, much less a scientist of any stripe. Yes, the ACS annual meeting was in sunny San Francisco this spring and part of her getaway trip included an afternoon with a New Energy group at her host’s house, meeting with an inventor who drove up from Los Angeles, and a dinner party when physicist Thor­sten Ludwig of Germany…

The End of Invisible Breakthroughs

BY JEANE MANNING

If the coming energy revolution had a theme song, its lyrics would have remained much the same for decades. One refrain is about breakthrough energy discoveries being ignored by the established mindset. However, I believe we’re approaching a time when the breakthroughs will appear evident to a wide swath of the public, with or without the blessing of gatekeepers. This theme comes to mind for several reasons: At the American Physical Society conference in Denver this spring, significant developments in “cold fusion” were announced by…
