"Yet Another Kind of Fusion" by David A. Wesely
When Pons and Fleischman announced the results of their “cold fusion” experiments in 1989, they were greeted with skepticism and dismissed as a hoax. However, in the 28 years since that time, many other investigators have sometimes found unexplained excess energy when attempting to duplicate the work of Pons and Fleischman. These seemingly random successes have forced skeptics to accept that something is going on which is not a hoax. Major Wesely will discuss a possible explanation of the excess energy that is now reported in the more recent of these experiments in “Yet Another Kind of Fusion.”
St. Paul native David A. Wesely received his BS in physics from Hamline University in 1967 and an MS in high energy physics from the University of Kansas in 1969. From 1970 to 1990 he was a major in the US Army Reserve and is a retired Medtronic firmware engineer.
