I'll be in my cold fusion.

If only there was some other kind of readily available fusion power source our planet could utilize!

Theaetetus: Got the text for the slide ready, Johnson? Good, and just in time. We go to press in a minute.

Fusion reactions create heavier elements out of lighter ones -- but not just any heavy element.

Good start.

The evidence of real fusion is in the kinds of elements that come out of any machine. Rossi initially claimed to be making copper out of nickel.

Not bad... Throw in some science.

But the addition of a proton to nickel to make copper requires so much energy that not even dying stars that are collapsing into themselves, aka supernovas, can do it.

Great. Now take it home.

The reaction in the universe that makes copper requires a neutron, a star that has collapsed and become extremely dense.

... uh, that's not right. Damn. Too late to fix it. Quick, finish it.

The only place they are found in abundance on Earth is near nuclear reactors or in radioactive materials.

Think anyone will notice?


For some reason, I read that as J.K. Simmons doing J. Jonah Jameson...and it made perfect sense.
