The scientists found in the ash of the spent fuel dramatic isotope changes in nickel (Ni) and lithium (Li) without any harmful radiation. If this finding would be correct - LENR as transmutation of elements without radiation - it would turn our present knowledge of nuclear physics on its head- a scientific sensation.
