    We'll see if anyone bites and if it really works. $1.50 a watt. They are talking about a 1 MW plant.

    Oh no. A piece of junk for sale costing $1.5. They say, if it doesn't work, “it will be a very sad day for science and perhaps another indication that cold fusion, simply cannot be done. “.
    I say, this is not science! And, of course “ cold fusion, simply cannot be done”!

    Sorry, misprint:
    "$1.5" should have been "$1.5 million". Not that it would be even worth $1.5 ! It would probably cost more than that to transport it to the rubbish dump.

    The question is, will anyone fall for it?

    Apparently DARPA did. The article states they ordered one.

    The idiots!
    Well, I suppose we shouldn't be too surprised that it is some millinery guys that fell for it.
    I wonder how long it would take until they realize and except they have foolishly wasted over a million dollars on junk!
