Re: It's a scam.

I would not call it a scam. Rather a poorly conducted and wrongly analyzed experiment. It s what happens when the researchers believe too much in the effect they are looking for. The Cold Fusion [1] is one example, The "Weber bar" [2] detecting gravitational waves is another. Both sets of experiments still have their believers but both are unreproducible and therefore cannot be treated as good science.
