Abilene Christian’s NEXT Lab applies for MSRR construction permit
The Nuclear Energy eXperimental Testing (NEXT) Laboratory at Abilene Christian University in Texas submitted a construction permit application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for its molten salt research reactor (MSRR) on August 15. According to ACU, the move represents the first application for a new U.S. research reactor of any kind in more than 30 years, as well as the first-ever university application for an advanced research reactor.

The results of a double-blind, cold fusion experiment are reported, in which six laboratories measured the helium content of five identically shaped 2-mm-diam × 10-cm-long palladium rods supplied by Fleischmann and Pons. Three rods were initially implanted with 4He. Before analysis, three of the rods had served as cathodes during electrolysis in cold fusion experiments: two in 0.1 M LiOD, and one in 0.1 M LiOH. The other two, one implanted and one not, served as references. The major observations are as follows:
