More On Taleyarkhan's Latest

Science News has more on Taleyarkhan's latest paper describing his attempt to get the rest of the world to take his "bubble fusion" research seriously; this time, he's knocked off with the neutrons to trigger the bubbles, and is using alpha particles from uranium to do the job.
