LENR-or When will Fusion Energy Happen

Most of us have no time for unproven, speculative ventures. Others, like myself, semi-retired, are interested in ”The Next Big Thing.” Usually, with no profit. Well, if true, this ”Thing” will rival the invention of the steam engine in importance. The book ”Lost History” -by Steven B. Krivit” gives the 1905 to 1927 history of […]
