An attempt to replicate a cold fusion claim--made in 2006 by a reputable electrochemist, Richard Oriani,--was not successful. Four researchers work independently in different laboratories. This is described on-line at

Our paper has already been accepted; it will probably be published in January 2011.

It is an autobiography illustrating my evolution from one extreme to another--from a devoted Stalinist to an active anti-communist. This testimony is based on a diary I kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).

Some have said that this easy to read ON-LINE book is "imperialist propaganda" and "a cold war relic." How can it be? I was not commissioned to write them. The books are dedicated to my parents, and to all other victims of Stalinism. Writing was a moral obligation for me. I am 79 and I want to share what I know and think, before it is too late. Please share this link with others who might be interested.

It is unfortunate that this experiment was picked for replication, because the 2006 Oriani report did not describe a single "reproducible experiment" in sufficient detail. Oriani's results were all over the map, a collection of anomalies and apparent uncontrolled variables.
