Sven Kullander, a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences*, the organization that awards the Nobel Prize in Physics and Chemisty, is giving a lecture including a discussion of cold fusion, Andrea Rossi and the e-Cat on November 23, 2011. Professor Kullander is currently chairman of the Academy’s energy committee.
A statement on the web site of the Swedish institution Örebro University, where the lecture is being held, states in part:
“In the wake of Fukushima accident is discussed again the future of nuclear power. The rush to replace the world’s eighty percent dependent on fossil fuels coal, oil and gas. Severe climate change will probably be difficult to avoid without massive expansion of both renewables and nuclear.”
“An intensive discussion on the net have questioned the experiment in Bologna mainly that it cannot be explained by the established nuclear physics theory. It has also been speculated that the derivative produced heat energy must have been greatly overestimated mainly by an overestimation of the buildup of steam. At the lecture, these issues will be treated in order to gain a better understanding of the experiment in Bologna.” (translated with Google Translate link).
It should be noted that Prof. Kullander has been one of the few physicists to have worked with the e-Cat in any capacity. His involvement with inventor Andrea Rossi and the e-Cat began in early 2011. He is currently professor emeritus of high-energy nuclear physics at Uppsala University in Sweden, one of Northern Europe’s oldest and most prestigious universities. Uppsala University is currently in talks with Andrea Rossi to independently evaluate and study his energy catalyzer. Similar negotiations have also been held with the world’s oldest university, the University of Bologna.
The lecture at Örebro University is open to the public and admission is free.
*Please note, the proper name for this institution is the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
