Now I don't know if I miss something, but apparently someone is building and developing LENR (low energy nuclear reactions) devices that outputs 600% of the energy that you put into them. I'm talking about Focardi, the one involved in the Petroldragon or what was it...
If this E-CAT (Hyperion) does something, and the "fusion" of nichel-hydrogen is real (which I think is not) then the world will change. Fact is, someone is paying money for that, a lot of money, and a lot of people are trying to repeat this experiment. Obviously this is not a synonym of "it functions", but Greece seems to be into that... (search for Defkalion).
So, are those people trying to achieve cold fusion with a billion^3 watt laser idiots? I mean, what's happening, someone knows?
