      • Sterling's Comment:
        We have a saying on our website: "He who is one step ahead is a genius. He who is two steps ahead is a crackpot."
        Someone smartly added when I was in Estonia: "He who is one step behind is the government."
        Don't look to any government, especially the corrupt U.S. govt. for leadership. For them, "revolutionary" is tiptoeing into "one step ahead" territory, in contrast to "one step behind". Cold Fusion is "two steps ahead" type of stuff. They'll never touch it under the present state of things.
    • Home LENR experiment!? - If this video is correct, we can do LENR transmutations in our own kitchen! Let the revolution begin! If I understand this video correctly, using your home microwave, you can convert carbon into iron. (NickelPower; March 3, 2012)
    • Tactical nuclear weapons-free critical mass that exploit the principles of cold fusion (1) - Indeed, for proponents of "cold fusion" there is a conspiracy by the military that would prevent the spread, the study and knowledge, Roberto Germano quote from "The discredit disease". (22Passi; March 2, 2012)
      • Tactical nuclear weapons-free critical mass that exploit the principles of cold fusion (2) (Original in Italian) - The existence of tactical nuclear weapons-free mass, based on principles LENR, is always less than a working hypothesis and increasingly a reality, certainly known to the U.S., USSR and now probably the North Korea. Note especially to all those "experts" who for more than 22 years are paid (very well I think) to tell the world that cold fusion does not exist, in other words, to lie and deceive the masses. Already the masses, us ordinary citizens who belong to elite power, military, political or intellectual, and especially not abbocchiamo their lies. (22Passi; March 4, 2012)

Copper 64 for PET Scans

Dear All:
I did not think to this application, but is interesting. The problem 
is that we produce picograms. Interesting, though.
Warm Regards,

NOTE: NOTE: We have replaced the previous Echo comment service with Disqus. The old Echo database of comments has now been imported into Disqus. The old comments are loaded in date received order. This will mean that if say, someone posted a reply a week after a comment was posted, then it will appear before the original post does (in other words jumbling up will occur in the normal Parent/Child pattern of replies) and comments will not follow a logical order. However, comments you have made/make in Disqus since the changeover date will appear in the normal order of appearance.

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
