Product description

Synopsis

The nuclear bomb programme was the culmination of a huge, expensive research development project, so secret that even days before the explosion of the first bomb many people said it was impossible. But what if, at the same time, America had discovered another strand of technology that was even more powerful than atomic science, a weapon so powerful it needs no fuel to fly at 17000 miles per second? Defence journalist Nick Cook reveals a 50-year conspiracy to surpress a technology based on anti-gravity, way ahead of its time. Gravity control: technology that can cancel out the weight of objects or be transformed into engines that produce energy from nothing, promising safe, pollution-free power, limitless propulsion - and weapons potential, The US aerospace and defence industry announced in 1956 that it was on the brink of a great scientific discovery and that the breakthrough would come before the decade was out. But it never happened; the revolution died before it had begun. That was the official version of events.

The truth, however, Cook maintains, is very different, and this book traces his 10-year investigation to prove that America cracked the gravity code and classified the technology at unheard of security levels. In his pursuit of the truth, he went to the heart of US aerospace development - a regime so secret it does not officially exist. Cook's trail took him eventually to Germany, searching out a repository of technical secrets buried 50 years earlier by the Nazis. There, among a cache of unofficial projects run by the SS and hidden by the Holocaust, he learned the secret of Zero Point.

From the Publisher

Gravity-control. Imagine it: technology that can cancel out the weight of objects or be transformed into engines that produce energy from nothing. Aircraft, trains, ships and cars no longer require fuel. Gravity-control promises safe, pollution-free power, infinite possibilities; limitless propulsion - and weapons potential.

In 1956, the US aerospace and defence industry announces it is on the brink of the greatest scientific discovery since the development of the atomic bomb. Gravity-control is within its reach. The breakthrough will come before the decade is out. But it never happens. The revolution dies before it has begun.

This is the official version. The truth, however, is very different.

The Hunt For Zero Point is the story of a ten-year investigation by award-winning defence journalist Nick Cook to prove that America cracked the gravity code and classified the technology at unheard of security levels. To seek out the truth, Cook knows he must journey to the heart of America’s black world of aerospace development – a regime so secret it does not officially exist.

Picking a path through America’s most classified weapons programmes, Cook follows a trail of detection that takes him to Germany, hunting down a repository of technical secrets buried by the Nazis 50 years earlier. It is here, in amongst a cache of undocumented projects run by the SS and hidden by the crimes of the Holocaust, that he finally learns the secret of Zero Point.
