Subject: great new book, The Hunt for Zero Point
Nick Cook, a highly connected British defense journalist as well
as Aerospace Consultant and Aviation Editor for the prestigious British
defense industry publication Jane's Defence Weekly, has written a
terrific new book that has more than a little bearing on the Disclosure
Project. The book, The Hunt for Zero Point, is a terrific read and
describes the results of Cook's ten year investigation into secret
electrogravitics/anti-gravity research in the U.S., Britain, and Nazi
Germany from WW II to the present. Physicists Hal Puthoff and Paul
LaViolette (whose testimony appear in Dr. Greer's Disclosure) were both
interviewed by the author and appear in the book. The Hunt for Zero
Point isn't yet available in the U.S., but can be ordered from the
British web sites for Amazon.com and Random House. (Links below.)
Here's a review from Amazon's UK site, including a summary by the author
and background info.
In April 1992 the UK Institution of Mechanical Engineers ran a
lecture entitled: Anti Gravity! The End of Aerodynamics? At the
heart of the lecture was a recognition by leading scientists in
the UK aerospace and defence industry of an extraordinary energy
But the story doesn�t start there�
In 1945 the Allies discovered that the Nazis had built the
world�s most advanced military research centres. In the dying
days of the war these centres were under the control of one man
� SS General Hans Kammler. One of the most important of Hitler�s
generals, he vanished at the end of the war and with him went
virtually all record of his existence.
However, like the rocket scientist Von Braun who was spirited
out of Germany by the US military, evidence of his work exists
throughout the American military research of the last fifty
At the heart of this research is an energy source a thousand
times more powerful than nuclear power.
An energy source once derided as stridently as Einstein was when
he talked of splitting the atom.
An energy source suppressed for fifty years because of its huge
An energy source that now offers the world a future, limitless
supply of power: zero point energy.
Nick Cook is Aviation Correspondent for Jane�s Defence Weekly.
The Hunt For Zero Point is a detective story that began with his
gradual accumulation of data and references to anti gravity and
the heavy-handed denials of the military and defence industries.
Through years of research, the discovery of witnesses and
physical evidence he can now tell the story of one of the last
century�s most breathtaking scientific discoveries; a discovery
borne of the Nazis desire to conquer the world that now offers
it the best hope for a pollution free source of energy.

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.

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
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
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.
>From the Author The Hunt For Zero Point is the story of myten-year investigation as Aviation Editor of Jane�s Defence
Weekly into the truth - or not - of anti-gravity, the �Holy
Grail� of aerospace propulsion technologies. I was drawn into
the story, much against my will at first, by my chance discovery
of a 1950s aerospace publication that set out in great detail
the mid-1950s anti-gravity R&D activities of a large number of
US aerospace and defence companies. What, I wondered, had
happened to all this research? And why had all these companies
since gone quiet on the subject?
There are three main investigative strands to the story:
1. There is real work going on in the USA today on anti-gravity
- the most visible of it at NASA, where the space administration
is investigating the use of �impossible science� to develop
hardware that will allow a manned spacecraft to journey into
deep space before the century is out by travelling at
light-speed or even beyond. In the course of researching this
story, I discovered and met with a Russian scientist called
Podkletnov who has succeeded in �blocking� gravity with
super-conductors. Technically, this is scientific heresy, but
Podkletnov is doing it and others aren�t far behind. There�s a
race going on here and the prize is huge: whoever cracks the
technology and brings it to market first taps into a potentially
limitless energy source and develops an exotic and novel form of
propulsion that requires no fuel. However, we�re also talking
weapons technology here: stuff that makes �Son of Star Wars�
look like a cheap firework display. Which brings me to strand 2
2. The Hunt For Zero Point is also an investigation of the
Pentagon�s �black world� of defence procurement. Every year, the
US spends around $20-30 billion (the equivalent of the entire UK
defence budget) on technologies so secret they do not officially
exist (as far as the public, media and most of the US Congress
are concerned). As Aviation Editor of JDW, I�ve got about as
close as you can get as an observer to this activity, which
encompasses �leap-ahead� technologies such as stealth, nuclear
programmes, spy satellites and directed energy weapons. The
question I needed to answer was whether anti-gravity technology
had been hidden away in this Pandora�s Box of doomsday science.
The black world is a bizarre place - it is very much a �system�,
huge and sprawling, only with walls and compartments you can�t
see - and you need to keep your feet on the ground when you
enter the labyrinth. In visiting top-secret locations like the
Lockheed Martin Skunk Works (in the California high! -desert)
and interviewing black world Pentagon generals, I come to
realise that the US military contains traces of activity in the
anti-gravity field, but, in effect, it has more to lose than
gain from pursuing it. The origins of anti-gravity science,
however, are real and buried in a top-secret, undisclosed
high-level weapons programme, run by the SS in Nazi Germany in
World War 2.
3. Strand 3 is an investigation of the top secret research and
weapons programme run by the SS (without the knowledge of
Hitler�s inner �cabinet�) in the last two years of the war. The
man in charge of this programme was SS General Dr Hans Kammler,
who ran a network of facilities in modern-day Poland, Czech
Republic, Germany and Austria, devoted to a wealth of exotic
weapons technology. At the end of the war, having told a number
of close confidants (among them, Albert Speer, Nazi Germany�s
armaments minister) that he was negotiating his surrender with
the Americans, Kammler disappeared - as well he might. Before
administering the weapons programme, he was the architect of
Hitler�s death camps. In this portion of the book, The Hunt For
Zero Point is given over to the search for Kammler and an
examination of the technologies he controlled - weapons science
that even today lies on the very edge of our understanding, so
different was the �culture� under which it came together. In!
the book, it becomes clear that anti-gravity technology was
definitively a part of this culture and that the Germans
developed hardware. The book contains details on two
Kammler-controlled programmes and visits to the facilities where
they came together.
The question is, of course, whether the Americans, in their
dogged pursuit of Nazi scientists at the end of the Second World
War, recovered the physics, technology and expertise associated
with this research - and, more to the point, developed it
further. The assembled evidence in The Hunt For Zero Point
speaks for itself.
