One use of ZPE is to harness anti-gravity, and Cook said this kind of experimentation could be traced back to Nazi Germany during WWII. They were exploring an "extraordinary cauldron of ideas," out of desperation to stay in the war, said Cook.

He witnessed an orb of orange light dri ... More »Host: George Noory
