Fusion Fiasco

Written for scientists and non-scientists alike, this book tells the behind-the-scenes story of the 1989-1990 fusion fiasco, one of the most divisive scientific controversies in recent history. It explains how credible experimental low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research emerged from the erroneous idea of "cold fusion." More

About Steven B. Krivit

Steven B. Krivit began his science journalism career focusing on low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR) in 2000. He initially reported on the work of credentialed scientists who claimed that they had experimental evidence of "cold fusion." He took those scientists at their word. However, by 2008, Krivit had identified eight experimental facts that disproved their erroneous "cold fusion" hypothesis. Krivit's article on LENR, published by Scientific American on Dec. 7, 2016, provides a concise overview of the topic.

Krivit is the publisher and senior editor of New Energy Times. He is a recognized subject-matter expert on LENR research and an author, investigative science journalist, editor, photographer, and international speaker. His is an author or editor of seven books about or including chapters on LENR.

Scientific Publications and Encyclopedias
Steven B. Krivit is the leading author of review articles and encyclopedia chapters and books about LENRs. He was invited to write and edit 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. His most recent books are the three-volume Explorations in Nuclear Science series; Hacking the Atom (Vol. 1), Fusion Fiasco (Vol. 2), and Lost History (Vol. 3).

In the Media
Krivit and/or New Energy Times have been quoted or cited on LENRs, in the U.S. and internationally, by many media outlets and Krivit has appeared on television and radio.

About the Series: Explorations in Nuclear Research
Steven B. Krivit's Explorations in Nuclear Research three-book series describes the emergence of a new field of science, one that bridges chemistry and physics. The books give readers an understanding of low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research and its history and provide a rare behind-the-scenes look at the players and personalities involved. The books present the results of in-depth historical research and draw on formerly inaccessible archives to describe what occurred in the research that has been mistakenly called "cold fusion."
