[NE] Moving Mirrors Make Light From Nothing.

A team of physicists is claiming to have coaxed sparks from the vacuum of empty space.... Nevertheless, scientists not directly connected with the group say that the result is impressive. "It is a major development," says Federico Capasso, an experimental physicist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who has worked on similar quantum effects.

At the heart of the experiment is one of the weirdest, and most important, tenets of quantum mechanics: the principle that empty space is anything but. Quantum theory predicts that a vacuum is actually a writhing foam of particles flitting in and out of existence.

They.. did it.
I can't believe they actually did it.

There have actually been free energy devices created which extract energy from the vacuum of space but have been suppressed by oil company's.

Had to ruin something cool with bias conjencture about oil, really?

~ This is a cool discovery...Hope to see more!

Show me how one with net gain energy.

Zero point energy or Casimir effect have been known. This might be the first time something "useful" was done with it?

Yes, this is easily one of the biggest developments of the decade/century so far.

Capasso calls the experiment "very clever". He doubts that the effect has any practical use because it doesn't generate large numbers of photons, but he considers it a nice demonstration of quantum mechanics.
All I really wanted to know.

They didn't make something from nothing. They moved the mirrors. That is energy transfer.
Wahoo!
