Article issues and classificationEdit

The article fails the B-class criteria #1 and #4. There is a March 2021 "citation needed" tag and a November 2015 "clarification needed". There are unsourced (yet untagged) paragraphs, subsections, and sections. -- Otr500 (talk) 17:43, 27 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cultural referencesEdit

It's a bit silly the way some people don't want the reference to cold fusion being in a video game to be included, methinks. But I'm not bothered at all, it's just a pity that my time taken adding the link to it was wasted. Brian Josephson (talk) 14:24, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It could be okay if the source actually supported the text. Bon courage (talk) 14:26, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


off topicEdit

I was working in the biology dept at MIT when the news 1st broke my boss, a very smart man and a biophysicist came in and said: I was talking to people in physics and they say that the theory says that Pons and Fleischman are off by 23 orders of magnitude by boss, a famous scientist not adverse to new ideas, looks down and quietly says: 23 orders of magnitude is a lot — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.245.17.105 (talk) 17:12, 30 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's not off-topic at all. It is however unsourced. If we can source it, it should be added to the article.
Have a look at http://www.quantumheat.org/index.php/en/ which seems to be heading in the same direction. Andrewa (talk) 14:17, 31 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
