Cold fusion. It just works.

Arata Phenomena: this is the name given by the scientists to the reaction of cold fusion obtained by Arata in Japan just few hours ago.

The deuterium (isotope of the hydrogen with one neutron) was pumped into a reactor where there was a cathode formed by 35% of palladium, and 65% of zirconium.

The reaction started to produce energy activating a thermic engine. After one hour and half the experiment was stopped to measure the amount of Helium-4 produced, sign of the reaction.

That’s a really good news

Il nucleare e Scajola. Ed una manciata di domande

Scajola ha annunciato che vuole fare le centrali nucleari . Ha detto in 5 anni.

Un pò di domande:

  1. Dove le costruisce?
  2. Come le costruisce in 5 anni se a tutti servono 20 anni?
  3. Che tipo di centrali costruisce ?
  4. Quante ne costruisce?
  5. Dove le mette le scorie?
  6. Chi paga per le centrali?
  7. Perchè decide di buttarsi su una cosa del genere e spenderci valanghe di soldi e non metterli in progetti più interessanti, come la geotermia avanzata o l’eolico off-shore o il solare termodinamico e creare insieme ricerca, innovazione ed energia?

Scajola, rispondi!
