(edit 141029: It seams that Ekströms was trying to be ironic. Allthough he accepts Gullströms calculations, he doesn’t accept the E-Cat since there was no radiation)
On the swedish forum Energikatalysatorn.se well known E-Cat critic Peter Ekström of Lund (who together with Pomp, Ericsson, Håkansson recently critized the ITPR2) made a comment. He also adds that:
“The Nobelcommitee will have an easy job next year: Rossi and Gullström”
I guess this last sentence could be interpreted as som kind of weird irony, but compared to Ekströms 3291 other comments on the forum this is one of a kind…
So what are we talking about? Of course the article released by doctoral student “Carl-Oscar Gullström” titled “Low radiation fusion through bound neutron tunneling” . At this moment it has already been downloaded 3882 times, which I believe is pretty good for a nuclear physics article.
The story gets even more interesting when realizing that Gullström is working in the same department as professor Bo Höistad of the ITPRs. I believe this is really good news since it means it is actually considered ok to study these phenomenons by young students in a physics department of the major university. I believe there is more to come…
Game changer…? … Yes.
As a sidenote. Both Nickel and Lithium were discovered by researchers from Uppsala University; Nickel by Axel Frederik Cronstedt in 1751 and Lithium by Johan August Arfwedson in 1817.
