Zero Point Energy: The Fuel of the Future is a marvelous introduction to the concept of zero point energy and what its practical applications could mean in a future where fossil fuels become increasingly depleted. Zero point energy is the kinetic energy retained by the molecules of a substance when it is reduced to the temperature of absolute zero. "Scientists have cooled specimens to less than 1 degree Kelvin of the absolute zero point temperature. A famous experiment proving the existence of ZPE involves cooling helium to within microdegrees of absolute zero temperature ... Amazingly, it will still remain a liquid! Only ZPE can account for the source of energy that is preventing helium from freezing." A handful of black-and-white diagrams illustrate this ambitious look into possibilities for taking advantage of zero point energy, couched in terms accessible to readers of all backgrounds. A bright ray of hope realizing the dream of sustainable living, highly recommended.
