A First at CERN
by Steven B. Krivit
One of the most conventional high-energy physics institutions in the world, CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Research, is interested in one of the most unconventional disciplines in science, low-energy nuclear reactions.
An interesting sequence of events has just occurred:
Dec. 7, 2011: Lewis Larsen publishes a paper on Slideshare discussing a possible relationship between low-energy nuclear reactions and unexplained observations with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
Jan. 12, 2012: Francesco Celani gives a slide presentation at the World Sustainable Energy Conference 2012. Slides 2-13 are actually from David Nagel, who has presented these same slides for many years. Slides 14 and 15 are from NASA. Slides 16-22, however, a table of excess heat claims, appear to be an original compilation by Celani.
In his conclusion, Celani cites two theoretical models which rely on the "weak force;" Widom-Larsen and Takahashi.
Jan. 16, 2012: Celani reports in an e-mail to LENR researchers that he has received an invitation to speak at CERN about LENR.
"The key point is that CERN changed from [being] fully negative to [having] deep interest," Celani wrote.
