The Hunt for Zero Point by Nick Cook explores the concept of
anti-gravity which goes against all the accepted theories of physics, including
those of Einstein.
Written by Jane's Defense Review reporter Nick Cook, "The Hunt for Zero Point:
Inside the Classified World of Antigravity Technology" is a modern bible featuring
the latest information on antigravity research and a complete historical background
on its secret origins and development - both in the United States and abroad.
The book begins when Cook jokingly calls the possibility of antigravity
drives "the ultimate quantum leap in aircraft design" in one of his Jane's
pieces more than 10 years ago. A few years later, someone anonymously slips
him an article, dating to the 1950s, that shows officials at Lockheed Martin
and other big contractors claiming they were close to exactly that.
What unfolded for Nick Cook, however, and what he reveals in his book,
was a 10 year intercontinental search for the truth. A work of
investigative journalism, his book reads like a thriller.
"There were times when I thought I was a little crazy, so I had to keep
reminding myself of the facts."
And at every turn, every dead-end, something,or someone, would appear
and lead him back on the trail. The most startling finding surrounded the
origins of anti-gravity research in Nazi Germany.
The Hunt for Zero Point
Intrigued, Cook takes the bait and follows the trail to the wildest territory
imaginable: destroyed or pulled reports; disappearing battleships; silent,
glowing flying discs; time distortion; Nazi slave labor. To simplify in the extreme:
Cook has found evidence that Nazi scientists had tapped into zero point energy the
quantum energy that possibly exists within vacuums in amounts that make nuclear
energy look like a joke (enough energy in the space of a coffee cup, Cook explains,
to boil the world's oceans six times over).
When WWII ended, Nazi secrets were plundered by the U.S. Army, which spirited
them, along with many of the German scientists themselves, into "black" programs
not acknowledged by the government and which may have produced working aerospace
technology based on zero point. Through his cover as a Jane's reporter, Cook seeks
out the stealthy wonks of this top-secret world, but readers will have to wade
through some opaque thumbnail descriptions of the science and arcane WWII history
to understand what he and others are getting at. It is well worth it.
