Question ID: 348047
I'm trying to find the birth and death years for the physicist Martin
Fleishman. He was at the U. of Utah in 1989 when he and Stanley Pons
announced that they had produced cold fusion in their lab. He may
still be alive. I am not sure.

Hello mbhenry

It's good to work on another of your questions.

Martin Fleischmann was born in 1927 and is almost certainly living in
semi-retirement in England.

There's a limit to what I can say here, without disrespect for his
privacy (and Google Answers rules) but I can refer you to a conference
where he gave a paper last year. I'd also point out that there has
been no news of his death in likely places, such as the London Times.

"Martin Fleischmann, now a naturalized British subject, was born March
29, 1927, in Karlsbad, Czechoslovakia . ."

Although many articles spell his name Fleishman, Fleischmann is the
spelling given in the Royal Society membership list:

This webpage shows that Fleischmann contributed a paper to the 10th
International Conference on Cold Fusion, held in August 2003:

You may be able to find out if Fleischmann will participate in the
2004 Conference by keeping an eye on this website:

(Here's a picture of Fleischmann at the 2002 conference.)

The Times and Sunday Times (London)
Most recent reference 2002:

I found nothing about his life since the August 2003 conference in the
Lexis-Nexis UK newspaper database.

Hoping you are happy with this information - but please ask for
clarification if I can be of any further help -

Best wishes - Leli
