Ummm...I don't know if this is the best section for this... but... it is said that a negetive energy can be created through the quantum theory via the Casimir Effect. Here is what I know as fact. In 1948, a Dutch physicist known as Henrik Casimir discovered how this negative energy can be acquired. Take two large neutrally charged metal plates, and place them in a vacuum. There is no force between the two plates, as they are neutral. (Neglecting gravity) However, due to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, the vacuum is filled with trillions upon trillions of particles and antiparticles, appearing and disappearing back into the vacuum. These particles are so quick to appear and disappear they are on the most part unobservable. Therefore they supposedly dont violate any laws of physics. (I personnally have a hard time swallowing that they dont violate the law of conservation of mass and energy) Anyway, these particles create a net attraction between the two plates. Casimir precidicted that this negative energy was measurable. People viewed this with extreme skepticism back in the day. But in 1958, physicist M. J. Sparnaay observed this effect in a controlled laboratory experiment, and it would match Casimir's predictions. For me, it sounds rather...iffy. Is there other info someone knows? Do you people think it is a bunch of bunk? Feedback is appriciated. Thanks.
