Anti-Gravity Machines: A Review of the Hunt for Zero Point
Until recently the idea that anti-gravity machines may be possible was something that I never really considered and the idea that they may already exist is something that I would have thought was absurd. That was until I read the Hunt for Zero Point by Nick Cook, he makes a compelling case that the military have been working on the technology for years and have likely already perfected it.
As a general rule I stay away from books like this one because they are usually written by crack pots but that is not the case here. The author Nick Cook is a highly respected aerospace journalist who writes for Jane's Defence Weekly. His credibility as an author was what got me to read the book.
The book starts off by telling the story of how Cook became interested in the subject and then follows him through his investigation. It starts out with is discovering an article about anti-gravity machines that was written by a respected aerospace engineer in the 1950's. His research then turned up quite a few other articles that were written around the same time. The articles then all of a sudden stopped and nobody was writing about the subject, Cook's experience with military research told him this was an indication that the research had become classified.
The book continues by comparing the what was known about research on anti-gravity technology with other highly classified technologies that have been developed over the years, in particular the development of the atomic bomb and the development of stealth technology. The subjects actually dovetail as it turns out that there is a widespread belief that the B-2 bomber actually employs some sort of anti-gravity device.
It also turns out that the technology involved may go a lot deeper than just machines that can defy gravity. As the title indicates the book takes a look at the whole concept of the zero point energy and whether or not it can be tapped. The belief seems to be that this is how an anti-gravity device would work. Of course if we can actually tap the zero point energy it will lead to some very profound changes for the entire world.
The book does a good job of following the investigation into whether or not research is being done on anti-gravity machines but it is a bit light on the subject of how they would work, if this is something that you are interested in learning you are going to have to . look elsewhere
So does anti-gravity technology exist? Before reading the book I would have said of course not, now I am not sure. It definitely appears that quite a bit of research has been done and it would seem reasonable that it would only stay highly classified for sixty years if there was something to it. Ultimately you will have to read the book and decide for yourself.
This is a good option if you are interested in how the technology of anti-gravity would work.
Apparently the Germans were working on anti-gravity devices during World War II, the bell may well have been part of this research.
This is a good introduction to the fascinating subject of the zero point energy.
These are some great videos on anti-gravity technology, the zero point energy and the related Hutchinson Effect.
