Nicholas Julian Cook is a British aviation journalist and author of fiction and non-fiction works and has won four Aerospace Journalist of the Year Awards from the Royal Aeronautical Society.[1]


For ten years Cook was Aviation Editor of Jane's Defence Weekly, the international defence journal.[2] He is currently the magazine's Aerospace Consultant.[3][4]


Cook is also a published author. His book The Hunt For Zero Point,[1] published by Century Random House in the UK in 2001 and Broadway Books in the US in 2002, details his ten-year investigation into efforts to crack the Holy Grail of aerospace propulsion: anti-gravity technology.[5] It focuses on Igor Witkowski's claims that the Nazi's developed a UFO-like device which allegedly became the basis for US research.[6][7][8]

Cook has also written two novels, Angel Archangel[9] and Aggressor,[10] as well as ghostwriting a number of books on military subjects.[11]


The 1999 Discovery Channel documentary Billion Dollar Secret followed Cook's investigation into secret US military spending and experimental aircraft that may have been mistaken for UFOs.[12] He also wrote and presented the 2005 documentary UFO's: The Secret Evidence, known as An Alien History of Planet Earth in the US.[13][14]

He is a frequent guest on Coast To Coast AM, a radio show that deals with the paranormal and conspiracy theories. [15]

Other work[edit]

Cook is founder and CEO of Dynamixx, a consultancy bringing together the defense industry and the search for solutions to climate change.[16][17][18]
