What's really cool is that if they read some of these lines out in Star Trek, it wouldn't be out of place. For instance:

you don't go directly from a 24 MeV quantum down to the optical phonons... downshift from 24 MeV to some sort of intermediary stopping point, maybe 2.25 MeV or so, and then try to downshift to the optical phonon loads.

Except that unlike in Star Trek, the words he's using actually make sense in context.

"The interview was interesting enough that we though it warranted being run in its entirety." But NOT good enough to proof read before posting.

I'm reading some of the paper's they're talking about off the The International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science

In "A Particle Physicist’s View on the Nuclear Cold Fusion Reaction," the author is hypothesizing that monopoles exist and are the result of inconsistency in testing the cold fusion reaction

In the first-half of this report, we saw that the floating magnetic monopole can make the nuclear cold fusion possible. And in the second-half of this report, we explained the logically inverse statement that the nuclear cold fusion occurs only when the magnetic monopole exists. So I am regarding the experimental apparatus of the nuclear cold fusion as the “detector” of the floating monopole. By observing that the magnetic monopole actually catalyzing nuclear cold fusion reaction, I expect to solve the two fundamental problems in physics, namely the existence of the magnetic monopole, and the basic mechanism of the nuclear cold fusion, simultaneously.

Edit: Apparently Hagelstein is also involved with research on high efficiency quantum-dot based thermoelectric devices that was on reddit not too long ago
