SCIENCE & RESEARCH
A.F.E.C.O. Laboratories continue to push the frontiers of science and research opened by post-human phenomena. Our scientists specialise in researching the untapped potential of post-human biology in fields of medicine, energy, biology, physics and sports sciences.
ZERO-POINT ENERGY RESEARCH
Our latest field of research explores the energy stored with a quantum vacuum energy proven by the post-human operative codename: Zero-Point.
Combining previous research conducted at the Maralinga Quantum Test Facility in South Australia A.F.E.C.O. scientists are attempting to understand how the operative Zero-Point’s bio-energy is able to channel the quantum vacuum.
Contemporary physics lacks a full theoretical model for understanding zero-point energy; in particular the discrepancy between theorized and observed vacuum energy is a source of major contention.
Zero-point energy (‘nullpunktsenergie’ in German) was first theorized by Max Planck in 1900 in his article ‘Second Quantum Theory’. Planck described the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may have; ie. the vibrational energy retained by molecules even at a temperature of absolute zero. Unlike in classical mechanics, quantum systems constantly fluctuate in their lowest energy state due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
In 1913, Albert Einstein and his assistant Otto Stern attempted to prove the existence of zero-point energy by calculating the specific heat of hydrogen gas and compared it with the experimental data. However, they retracted support for the idea shortly after publication because they found Planck’s second theory may not apply to their example.
Physicists Richard Feynman and John Wheeler calculated the zero-point radiation of the vacuum to be an order of magnitude greater than nuclear energy, with a single light bulb containing enough energy to boil all the world’s oceans.
A.F.E.C.O Laboratories believe that harnessing zero-point energy could allow us to access limitless clean & free energy. It has the potential of transforming our world, providing alternatives to fossil fuels and solving the energy crisis.
