When cold fusion was rejected within a year or so after its announcement in 1989, most people lost interest and moved on with their careers or other activities. This response is, of course, normal for rejected claims. Unbeknownst to most people, however, research continued at the margins of mainstream science. Perhaps because of its great initial promise as a source of energy, periodically people may be curious about its fate: “Whatever happened to cold fusion?”
Persons who look into cold fusion may be surprised at the amount of work that has been done – and progress that has been made – since the announcement and rejection. That was certainly the case for the author of this website, Dr. Thomas Grimshaw. Those who are interested no doubt have many questions. The attempt is made here to anticipate the major questions – and provide answers. These answers are in fact informed opinion of Dr. Grimshaw and are based on his 16 years of experience in the field. References may be provided for some of the answers.
Please note that answers are still being developed for the questions so far listed. When available, the answers will be presented more or less independently of each other.
