There’s an article on Science Daily where some Italian scientists are suggesting the neutron radiation from an earthquake in 33 AD could have caused the image of the Shroud of Turin, and the neutrons would also have impacted the Carbon dating. Reading the article, the neutrons apparently come from piezonuclear fission reactions.
Intriguing, but… Earthquakes cause neutron radiation? Piezonuclear fission reaction?
Doing a little searching, piezonuclear fission reaction seems to be controversial. The idea is that crushing some rocks somehow triggers nuclear fission.
Anyway, any physics types want to weigh in on this? Is this right up there with cold fusion? Does anyone know of any attempted measurements of elevated neutron radiation associated with Earthquakes, apart from those few researchers?
