Did you read the article you linked to? No peer reviewed journal would accept their paper. The paper they published gave no data on the specifics of their reactor, detectors, or really anything.

I think the quote from Steven E. Jones in the article sums my thoughts up exactly:

Steven E. Jones said:
Where are the quantitative descriptions of these copper radioisotopes? What detectors were used? Have the results been replicated by independent researchers? Pardon my skepticism as I await real data.

I read it - I'm skeptical too. But suppose you had what they say they have. Would you just give it away? If true, it would be worth billions, maybe more. Part of me wants it to be true, but you're probably right and it's just quackery.

This doesn't meet PF standards. When this appears in a journal, then we can discuss it.
