Turned up to eleven: Fair and Balanced

Monday, March 04, 2002

I just went to Lagniappe, Derek Lowe's site, and he is posting about something that, as he says, could be earthshattering news if it is borne out. Essentially, some physicists are suggesting evidence for nuclear emissions from cavitation bubbles in acetone, if I am reading the synopsis right. If this is true, it could be revolutionary. Of course, after Pons and Fleischmann, everyone is very wary of cold fusion claims, but this is being published in Science, so it is, unlike their claims, being submitted for peer review. Beware- world changing under feet!!
