I saw a cool t-shirt with this on it so i looked it up. It has little to do with t-shirts, but MEchboy might enjoy the post anyway :-)
So, Wikipedia says cold fusion is:
"In the broadest sense, cold fusion is any type of nuclear fusion accomplished without the high temperatures (millions of degrees Celsius) required for thermonuclear fusion. In common usage, "cold fusion" refers more narrowly to a postulated fusion process of unknown mechanism offered to explain a group of experimental results first reported by electrochemists Stanley Pons of the University of Utah and Martin Fleischmann of the University of Southampton."
[thanks to AgentK and various other Twitterites who have recently mentioned the t-shirt, hence my interest]
