Descrizione prodotto


Steven B. Krivit is an author, investigative science journalist and international speaker who specializes in low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research. He is the leading author of review articles and encyclopedia chapters about LENRs, including invited papers for the Royal Society of Chemistry, Elsevier and John Wiley & Sons. He was an editor for the American Chemical Society 2008 and 2009 technical reference books on LENRs and editor-in-chief for the 2011 Wiley Nuclear Energy Encyclopedia.

He is the founder of the New Energy Times Web site and online news service and has lectured nationally and internationally. He has advised the U.S. intelligence community, the U.S. Library of Congress, members of the Indian Atomic Energy Commission and the interim executive director of the American Nuclear Society.

Krivit has been cited as a subject matter expert in LENRs, in the U.S. and internationally, by Nature, the New York Times, Wired-UK, Chemical & Engineering News, Discovery, Forbes, Popular Mechanics, and has appeared on television and radio.

Formato: Copertina flessibile
A captivating volume, full of information, details, background. Not only a history of science, but a human story which describes the evolution of a field of research still to be defined, and for this reason even more complex to solve and define; reading the Krivit's work you may appreciate the experience gained on the field in the last decades and detailed knowledge of the protagonists and the various developments. A valuable document because it was written by a direct protagonist of this field of research. A detailed report that let rebuild the process of defining for a discovery and the necessary steps to go ahead in a complex field like the Low Energy Nuclear Reaction. This is an amazing book.

Un volume accattivante, pieno di informazioni, dettagli, retroscena. Non solo una storia di scienza, ma una storia umana che descrive l'evoluzione di un campo di ricerca ancora da definire, e per questo ancor più complesso da risolvere e definire; leggere il lavoro di Krivit si può apprezzare l'esperienza acquisita sul campo negli ultimi decenni e la conoscenza dettagliata dei protagonisti e le varie evoluzioni. Un documento prezioso perché è stato scritto da un protagonista diretto di questo campo di ricerca. Un rapporto dettagliato che lascia ricostruire il processo di definizione di una scoperta e le misure necessarie per andare avanti in un settore complesso come le reazioni nucleari a bassa energia. Un libro assolutamente sorprendente.

5.0 su 5 stelle Well Researched and a Finely Told Story 22 febbraio 2017
Di Fletch - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
After finishing Hacking the Atom, my first response is Wow! It was extremely well-written, and surprisingly easy to follow. I say surprisingly, because even though the overall story did not always follow a straight timeline, Krivit moved back and forth very well. It was like each story started from the beginning and reached a conclusion, then Krivit moved on to the next story, and all of the stories together painted a whole picture. I also liked that he did not open with an opinion of what was real and what was not real, he let the reader come to his or her own conclusion. Well done. Krivit is what I would call, with high praise, a "digger." I don’t know how he found some of the information he did. Many researchers stop when they find enough information to support what they want to find. A digger does not stop until he/she finds the truth, whatever it may be.

This book also hit a personal note for me. Krivit wrote about a number of the researchers applying for patents. In the 1990’s, as part of my job as a document classification reviewer, I spent time at the US Patent and Trademark Office, reviewing patent applications that were in nuclear areas to determine if they needed to be held under a secrecy order. (I have a degree in Nuclear Engineering and worked for one of the Federal agencies.) I reviewed a number of patent applications that were for so-called "cold fusion" processes and this brought back memories for me.

This is the best single book on so-called Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). This term is used to distinguish the field from High Energy Nuclear Reactions which covers stars and man made thermonuclear reactions. While the input energy is low the output energy can be high. The experimental evidence for this science is more energy output than input in the form of heat and nuclear transmutations. Elements appear that were not part of the experiment before the experiment and isotopes with unnatural isotope ratios appear. Note that isotope ratios are essentially constant for solid elements and an unnatural isotope ratio is a sign of thermal diffusion or nuclear transmutation. In the case of thermal diffusion the isotope ratio would change locally, but the total isotope ratio in the system would remain constant. In these experiments the isotopes are not redistributed. The unnatural isotope ratio is maintained through out the experiment. Energy is released when elements are transmuted. These experiments work with non-radioactive nuclear materials like ordinary hydrogen and nickel. There is very little external radiation so this is a kind of Green Nuclear Energy.

A theory called the Widom Larsen Process seems to explain the energy from nuclear transformations.

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I thought the book was so impressive. This is complex science, and yet I felt that the prose and the approach was accessible for someone like me, who has an interest in science but not the advanced education of a physicist. I think part of that readability is due to the authors' use of "characters" and the interpersonal squabbles/differences of opinions, etc that are detailed in the narrative. This really gives the science a human face, which can be missing from work like this. I also didn't realize that the term cold fusion was not accurate (LENRs being the proper name)! I did have to read slowly in order to absorb some of the more difficult concepts, but felt amply rewarded by the later chapters that delved into the concepts more in depth. This feels like a very important work.

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book is written for general audiences; a background in science or engineering is not required to understand or enjoy it. It describes the painstaking research that led to an understanding of what was really happening in the reactions originally dubbed "cold fusion," and the scientific infighting that delayed progress in the field. Anyone interested in what might be the most important scientific discovery of the last thirty years should read this book.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful book detailing the birth 22 ottobre 2016
Di John A. Gowan - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A wonderful book detailing the birth, death, and resurrection of "cold fusion", under a better and more accurate name: "low energy nuclear reactions" (LENRs). There is a new domain of physics here, waiting to be explored and put to use. We are also given a look at the extreme
difficulty facing any challenge to the existing paradigms of "establishment" science. Highly recommended.
