From Dr. Steven Greer’s show notes:
“He held two MIT degrees in Aeronautical-Astronautical Engineering and a Harvard Doctorate in Environmental Health Sciences (Air Pollution Control Engineering). He had broad experience in high-technology engineering at companies including Hughes Research Labs, TASC (The Analytic Science Corporation) and MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
“Dr. Mallove was the Chief Science Writer at MIT when the cold fusion story broke in March 1989, and he resigned in 1991 after his requested investigation into the altered cold fusion data at MIT (which helped to discredit the whole subject) was not properly done.”
Mallove’s book, ‘Fire from Ice’ detailed the 1989 report of table-top cold fusion from Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann at the University of Utah. Among other things, the book claims that the team did produce “greater-than-unity” output energy in an experiment successfully replicated on several occasions, but that the results were suppressed through an organized campaign of ridicule from mainstream physicists, including some at his own alma mater, MIT. By and large these refutations came from scientists studying the multi-billion-dollar controlled thermonuclear fusion industry, in a bid to protect their own research and funding.
Mallove was mysteriously murdered in 2004, while cleaning out his former childhood home, which had been rented out. Three people were arrested and charged in connection with the killing. The first trial resulted in a guilty plea to manslaughter in April, 2012.
Dr. Steven Greer continues:
“The marginalization by the scientific establishment of the cold fusion topic bears strong resemblance to the similar marginalization of the ET/UFO topic: both have been ridiculed and defamed because they break established paradigms. As Dr. Mallove states in this interview, ‘There is nothing worse…than suggesting to academic physicists in particular, and academics in general, that they are not only wrong; they are disastrously wrong, catastrophically wrong.’ In his magazine, Dr. Mallove advised us to remember the sentiments of Michael Faraday: ‘Nothing is too wonderful to be true.'”
