The Hunt for Zero Point

Author: Nick Cook

Genre: Technology & Engineering

This riveting work of investigative reporting and history exposes classified government projects to build gravity-defying aircraft--which have an uncanny resemblance to flying saucers. The atomic bomb was not the only project to occupy government scientists in the 1940s. Antigravity technology, originally spearheaded by scientists in Nazi Germany, was another high priority, one that still may be in effect today. Now for the first time, a reporter with an unprecedented access to key sources in the intelligence and military communities reveals suppressed evidence that tells the story of a quest for a discovery that could prove as powerful as the A-bomb. The Hunt for Zero Point explores the scientific speculation that a "zero point" of gravity exists in the universe and can be replicated here on Earth. The pressure to be the first nation to harness gravity is immense, as it means having the ability to build military planes of unlimited speed and range, along with the most deadly weaponry the world has ever seen. The ideal shape for a gravity-defying vehicle happens to be a perfect disk, making antigravity tests a possible explanation for the numerous UFO sightings of the past 50 years. Chronicling the origins of antigravity research in the world's most advanced research facility, which was operated by the Third Reich during World War II, The Hunt for Zero Point traces U.S. involvement in the project, beginning with the recruitment of former Nazi scientists after the war. Drawn from interviews with those involved with the research and who visited labs in Europe and the United States, The Hunt for Zero Point journeys to the heart of the twentieth century's most puzzling unexplained phenomena.

Das Ahnenerbe der SS 1935 1945

Author: Michael H. Kater
Publisher: Oldenbourg Verlag
ISBN: 3486579509
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Germany

Standardwerk der NS-Forschung: Die Schutzstaffel Heinrich Himmlers entfaltete wahrend des Dritten Reiches hochste Aktivitat, und das nicht nur als Agent totalitarer Machtvollstreckung. Kater zeigt, dass die SS den ernsthaften Versuch einer Infiltration des deutschen Kultur- und Geisteslebens unternommen hat, aus Motiven, die nicht zuletzt in der bizarren Personlichkeit Himmlers selbst begrundet liegen. Himmlers SS-Forschungsamt "Ahnenerbe" entwickelte sich, uber den Umweg anfangs noch harmlos anmutender geisteswissenschaftlicher Projekte, zu einem der gefahrlichsten Instrumente nationalsozialistischer Kulturpolitik. Dennoch vermochte sich das "Ahnenerbe" nie zur obersten Kulturbehorde des Dritten Reiches, nicht einmal der SS, auszuwachsen. In einem Prozess der institutionellen Selbstvernichtung, der sich innerhalb der Schutzstaffel vollzog, wurde es sogar fast zerrieben. Der Verfasser charakterisiert die SS nicht als monolithisches Gebilde, sondern als "Spielfeld parasitarer Krafte, die im Neben- und Gegeneinander wirkten." Er reiht sich damit in die Gruppe jener Historiker ein, die den Fuhrer-Staat Hitlers als Ausdruck eines auf allen Ebenen wuchernden Machtpluralismus interpretieren und nicht als eine zielbewusst gelenkte, allzeit geschlossene Monokratie."
