Ketchum study Galileo comparison?

Post  tfj on Tue Feb 19, 2013 2:20 pm

Instead of reaching all the way back to Galileo, I think a better parallel can be drawn with the "cold fusion" fiasco of two decades ago.

Yeah, comparing yourself to Galileo is never a good look. In fact there's been so many kooks and crackpots comparing themselves to Galileo over the last hundred years that these days it's usually a pretty accurate indicator that the person saying it is a crank.

Actual scientists will go back to the lab and refine their work when it gets knocked back, pseudoscientists will bitch and moan and compare themselves to Galileo.

Given that cold fusion was entually (after lots of attempts at validation) determined to be an example of pathological science, it wouldn't have been wise of Ketchum to compare herself to Fleischmann and Pons.

Take a look at Popular Science's Nov 2012 article, or look up "lenr" on Nasa's website.
If you haven't been following the topic, you may be surprised.

Thanks for the info - I hadn't come across that before.

My point does however stand as it was specific to the research of Fleischmann and Pons. Cold Fusion may be possible, but not using the methods employed by Fleischmann and Pons.
