Transmutations – the alchemists are back
500 years ago, alchemists tried to make gold from other elements – a process called transmutation – by the use of a magic stone called philosopher stone. Modern science told us this cannot be possible. At the university we have learned that no nuclear reactions should be possible under normal (mild) reaction conditions. Only under very high temperatures, such as in plasma, elements would fuse and convert to other elements.
Now, more and more evidence has been accumulated that transmutation, the conversion of elements into other elements, might be possible even under mild conditions.
Edmund Storms, a cold fusion scientist, quotes in his 2007 book “Science of Low Energy Nuclear Reaction: A Comprehensive Compilation of Evidence and Explanations about Cold Fusion” 81 references that support transmutations, even cases of transmutations in biological cells. Just recently, last week interesting transmutation results by Mitsubishi have been presented at CERN. Andrea Rossi, inventor of the e-cat energy device, claims that he fuses nickel with hydrogen to make copper.
There are far too many reports that it can be simply based on errors or bad science. Looking at all of these reports, we can only raise our eyebrows. It is far away for what we have ever been told by mainstream science. Can it be possible ? It seems, looking at all the scientific papers that evidence is robust for transmutations. Transmutations of elements would also be a clear evidence that nuclear reactions indeed take place under mild conditions as claimed by the cold fusion people. Interestingly, abnormal isotope ratios are obtained, different from reactions at hot fusion conditions, and hardly any radiation is observed. This means there must be a previously unknown reaction path to explain these results.
