Talking Catalyzed nuclear fusion

I think of something and browse the internet. And I got a short report.
It tells that Muon particle can catalyze nuclear fusion. I feel this interesting.
But it also tells that the catalyzed nuclear fusion may even occur in normal temperature. This render me wonder if it's a fake new.

We are taught that only at millions of degrees C can there be enough energy concentration to get fusion ...

Many experimenters report fusion is occurring in collapsing water vapor bubbles at room temperature . The temperature does reach millions , but only fleetingly , in an extremely small space !!

This 3 minute video explains the basics ...





In the right conditions collapsing vapor bubbles can cause extensive damage to boat propellers ....



Moray B King believes collapsing vapor bubbles explains the many reports of experimenters 'running cars on water'... or getting extra mileage by injecting water electrolysis products ..... The energy surplus comes from many extremely small fusion events within the combustion cylinder of the IC engine .

I don't know if muon catalysed fusion is (theoretically) a real thing or not,
but the practical difficulties would probably make it experimentally untenable anyway.

Any such catalysis would require close proximity of the muons with the fusing nuclei.
I could see that getting the muon and nuclei densities high enough for meaningful levels of catalysis would be edging toward impossible.

But then, if it were easy fusion reactors would be on every street corner.

Talking Bubble vs Muon

The explosion of bubble is conventional explosion no matter it’s outward or inward. And conventional explosion is able to damage surface of metal. People can test if a bubble can ignite a H-bomb or use a high speed motor to turn a propeller in high density LiD liquid in lab and watch what will happen…
It’s said that Muon particle is very hard to produce. Nuclear fusion in normal temperature seems to be mythology. But theoretically Muon particle can catalyze nuclear fusion: the Muon particle can form a two – body system with Hydrogen (D or T) nucleus and render the mass of Hydrogen nucleus increase (detailed calculation see ****9876’s thread ****explanation of u Hydrogen phinominon in philosophy column) even it might be temporarily. That means the kinematic energy of the Hydrogen (D or T) nucleus will increase. This effect of catalysis is slight…

Talking

The catalysis can be analyzed from the angle of electricity too.
Assume a Muon “invades” an originally over – all neutral system of particles under reaction.
Take the electric potential energy of the originally over – all neutral system as the “zero point of calculation”. When a Muon “invades”, the total electric potential energy of negative particle system will increase. It’s not the focus here. What we care is the total electric potential energy of positive particle system (the Hydrogen, or D, or T nuclei) will decrease. The amount of decrease of electric potential energy is equivalent to additional attractive force among the positive particle system (the Hydrogen, or D, or T nuclei).
Electron can do this too.

Talking nucleon vs dark force

I am thinking there might be a more profound reason of Muon catalysis, but only half of my brain is doing that...Actually, most of my time is spent on worrying...sometimes I even can't read physics. The local dark force render me suffer anxiety neurosis. (江门地方黑恶势力钟永康搞得我老猪患上焦虑症)
