The Chinese claim to have perfected cold fusion (which may be why they--and almost everyone else--wants to go--or in our case, return (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show)--to the moon in order to scoop up the Helium 3 that's lying on the surface, which is a perfect fuel for fusion reactors).
Italian inventor Andrea Rossi says he has created a generator that produces endless energy. In Wired.com, David Hambling writes: "The E-Cat is deceptively simple: hydrogen is passed over a special catalyst based on nickel in a container about a liter in size, and enough heat is produced to boil water. A demonstration appeared to show a several kilowatts of output from a four hundred watt input. The catalyst is secret, but Rossi says it can be produced at low cost." (Could it be moon dust?)
He doesn't call it cold fusion--and neither does anyone else, since fusion was so roundly debunked a few years ago. But some scientists are coming out of the "fusion closet," including 1973 physics Nobel prize winner Brian Josephson, who also supports telepathy research. Hambling quotes NASA scientist Dennis Bushnell as saying, "I think this (research) will go forward fairly rapidly now."
Budget documents from DARPA (the Pentagon's advanced science section) reveal a long interest in fusion reactors, and Hambling quotes ex-DARP head Tony Tether as saying, "If it is a hoax, it's a damned good one."
WHO KNOWS what will happen in the future? Here's one great thing we know will happen: The publication (in January) of Whitley Strieber's sequel to "Communion," "Solving the Communion Enigma," and to make SURE you don't miss it, you can pre-order a copy NOW.
WHAT ELSE will happen--Will we discover that time travel is real? Can you imagine a painting made in (what seems like) a mental institution (but which is filled with ex-CIA type agents) as really being a time machine? This is the premise behind Whitley Strieber's wonderful novel "The Omega Point," which you can get (along with an autographed bookplate designed by Whitley) from the Whitley Strieber Collection.
