What ever happened to "Cold Fusion"? I heard it never was able to be duplicated...?

....were Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann frauds, or did they actually develop something that actually happened? I also understand that some scientists duplicated PART of the original experiment (producing Helium 3 from dideuterium oxide).

They might not have been frauds but they didn't take accurate lab notes. Guess thats what happens when you are on the cunning edge of science and take the shortcuts.

Cause it never happened. It was a sham just like the South Korean guy who claimed he clone a human. Researchers aren't beyond reproach and as pure the wind driven snow as people would like to believe.

They were frauds. Nuclear fusion is not possible at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. Their work wasn't duplicated, even by them.
