4.0 out of 5 stars Stranger than fiction, 7 April 2005
By 
This review is from: Hunt For Zero Point (Paperback)
'Zero-point' energy is an aspect of quantum field theory whose 'reality' is still very much open to interpretation. However, given its existence then there are theories which argue that ZPE, gravity and hence mass are inextricably linked. The intriguing possibility then is that the fabled 'anti-gravity machine' is a theoretical possibility rather than science fiction.
A more intriguing possibility - have scientists already stumbled upon such machines?
Nick Cook, a respected Jane's hack, recounts his own story of delving through the ofttimes murky world of aerospace research in order to find answers to this question. And despite what the blurb above says the answers are very much less than definitative.
This is not a criticism, indeed its what makes the book so credible. Much of his investigation is involved with the absence of information - widely publicised research which suddenly disappears, loquacious engineers who quckly become cagy when asked the 'wrong' question. You are left with an elusive notion that there must be *something* behind the stories but no definite idea of what this might be in a world where excessive, paranoid security seems to be the norm.
All in all its a fascinating real-life X-files investigation involving high-technology, forbidden science and Nazis. If only he threw in some hot gypsies it would be a classic.
