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. Drawn from interviews with those involved in the research and who visited the labs in Europe and the U.S., The Hunt for Zero Point uncovers suppressed evidence of this intriguing sub-plot to World War II and the Cold War, and suggests that this research may still be ongoing today.

Based on the scientific speculation that a "zero point" of gravity exists in the universe and can be replicated on earth, the applications of this potentially dangerous technology include the ability to build military planes of unlimited speed and range, along with the most deadly weaponry heretofore unseen. A fascinating book for students interested in the machinations of war, the history of science, and war in the twentieth century.
