Has Free Energy Been Found?

The secret of free energy may have been discovered by a an electrical engineer in Ireland. The 58-year-old electrical engineer is not revealing his identity for ?security and publicity-avoidance reasons.? He has spent 23 years perfecting what he calls the Jasker Power System, which is an electromechanical device that he says is capable of replenishing its own energy source. If this is real, it would eventually mean an end to our oil-based economy and would help solve the problem of global warming.

The creator of the Jasker, which is a name derived from family abbreviations, says it can be built to using ordinary components and can power anything that requires a motor. ?The Jasker produces emission-free energy at no cost apart from the installation. It is quite possibly the most significant invention since the wheel,? says Tom Hedrick, the only person involved with the machine who is willing to give his name. Hedrick has set up a company to license the device in the United States. ?It?s a giant leap forward,? he says. ?The uses of this are almost beyond imagination.?

The inventor says that once the Jasker is running, it can continue running indefinitely, until the parts run out. He says he has supplied all his own domestic power needs free for 17 months. He insists he is not claiming to have achieved perpetual motion. ?Perpetual motion is impossible,? he says. ?This is a self-sustaining unit which at the same time provides surplus electrical energy.?

A prototype Jasker, the size of a dishwasher, ran for around 10 minutes using four 12-volt car batteries as an initial power source. It powered 3 100-watt light bulbs during that time. A meter reading of the batteries? voltage before the machine started up showed a total of 48.9 volts. When the Jasker was switched off, a second reading showed 51.2 volts, indicating that the voltage had not only not run down, it had actually increased. The machine continued to run for around two hours, with no dimming of the light bulbs, which remained lit during a short power cut. ?The draw on the batteries was estimated at more than 4.5 kilowatts. With any existing technology the batteries would have been drained flat in one and a half minutes,? the inventor says.

Experts in this field are hesitant to believe the claims about Jasker, since they were embarrassed by the Cold Fusion fiasco of 1989, when a group of Utah researchers claimed to have solved the problem of Cold Fusion, only to have their research shown to be invalid. The first law of thermodynamics says that you can?t get more energy out than you put in. ?I don?t believe this. It goes against fundamentals which have not yet been disproved,? says William Beattie, of Queen?s University in Belfast. ?These people are either Nobel prize-winners or they don?t know what they?re dealing with. The energy has to come from somewhere.?

Nick Cook, consultant to Jane?s Defense Weekly and author of ?The Hunt for Zero Point,? says, ? Zero point energy has been proven to exist. The question is whether it can be tapped to provide usable energy. And to that end, I think it?s possible, yes. There are a lot of eminent scientists now involved in this field and they wouldn?t be if there wasn?t anything to it. In my experience opinion in this field is extremely polarized?people either go with this area of investigation in their minds or they don?t, and if they don?t they tend to pooh-pooh it vehemently. It?s very difficult to get an objective assessment. Basically, no one wants to be the first to stick his head above the parapet.?

Robert Park, professor of physics at the University of Maryland, says, ?These claims come along every 10 years or so and nothing ever comes of them. They?re all cases of ?voodoo science.??
