The Philidelphia Experiment (Project Invisibility)

  Author: 17  Category:(Mysterious) Created:(8/28/1999 10:35:00 PM)

Project Rainbow was allegedly an experiment conducted upon a small destroyer escort ship during World War II, both in the Philadelphia Naval Yard and at sea; the goal was to make that ship invisible to enemy detection. The accounts vary as to whether the original idea was to achieve invisibility to enemy radar or whether the prize sought after was more profound: optical invisibility. Either way, it is commonly believed that the mechanism involved was the generation of an incredibly intense magnetic field around the ship, which would cause refraction or bending of light or radar waves around the ship, much like a mirage created by heated air over a road on a summer day. The legend goes on to say that the experiment was a complete success... except that the ship actually disappeared physically for a time, and then returned. They wanted to 'cloak' the ship from view, but they got de-materialization and teleportation instead... It has been claimed that the Philadelphia Experiment was partly an investigation into how Albert Einstein's 'Unified Field Theory for Gravitation and Electricity' might be used to advantage in the development of electronic camouflage for ships at sea. Einstein allegedly published his Unified Theory around 1925-27 in German, in a Prussian scientific journal, but it was later withdrawn as incomplete. This research was aimed at using intense electromagnetic fields to mask a ship from incoming projectiles, mainly torpedoes. This was later extended to include a study of creating radar invisibility by a similar field in the air rather than in the water. The story begins in June of 1943, with the U.S.S. Eldridge, DE (Destroyer Escort) 173, being fitted with tons of experimental electronic equipment. This included, according to one source, two massive generators of 75 KVA each, mounted where the forward gun turret would have been, distributing their power through four magnetic coils mounted on the deck. Three RF transmitters (2 megawatt CW each, mounted on the deck), three thousand '6L6' power amplifier tubes (used to drive the field coils of the two generators), special synchronizing and modulation circuits, and a host of other specialized hardware were employed to generate massive electromagnetic fields which, when properly configured, would be able to bend light and radio waves around the ship, thus making it invisible to enemy observers. The experiment, said to have taken place at the Philadelphia Naval Yard and also at sea, took place on at least one occasion while in full view of the Merchant Marine ship S.S. Andrew Furuseth, and other observation ships. The Andrew Furuseth becomes significant because one of its crewmen is the source of most of the original material making up the PX legend. Carlos Allende, a.k.a. Carl Allen, wrote a series of strange letters to one Dr. Morris K. Jessup in the 1950's in which he described what he claims to have witnessed: at least one of the several phases of the Philadelphia Experiment. At 0900 hours, on July 22nd, 1943, so the story goes, the power to the generators was turned on, and the massive electromagnetic fields started to build up. A greenish fog was seen to slowly envelop the ship, concealing it from view. Then the fog itself is said to have disappeared, taking the Eldridge with it, leaving only undisturbed water where the ship had been anchored only moments before. The elite officers of the Navy and scientists involved gazed in awe at their greatest achievement: the ship and crew were not only radar invisible but invisible to the eye as well! Everything worked as planned, and about fifteen minutes later they ordered the men to shut down the generators. The greenish fog slowly reappeared, and the Eldridge began to dematerialize as the fog subsided, but it was evident to all that something had gone wrong. When boarded by personnel from shore, the crew above deck were found to be disoriented and nauseous. The Navy removed the crew, and shortly after obtained another. In the end, the Navy decided that they only wanted radar invisibility, and the equipment was altered. On the 28th of October in 1943, at 17:15, the final test on the Eldridge was performed. The electromagnetic field generators were turned on again, and the Eldridge became near-invisible; only a faint outline of the hull remained visible in the water. Everything was fine for the first few seconds, and then, in a blinding blue flash, the ship completely vanished. Within seconds it reappeared miles away, in Norfolk, Virginia, and was seen for several minutes. The Eldridge then disappeared from Norfolk as mysteriously as it had arrived, and reappeared back in Philadelphia Naval Yard. This time most of the sailors were violently sick. Some of the crew were simply 'missing' never to return. Some went crazy, but, strangest of all, five men were fused to the metal in the ship's structure. The men that survived were never the same again. Those that lived were discharged as 'mentally unfit' for duty, regardless of their true condition. So, what had begun as an experiment in electronic camouflage, ended up as an accidental teleportation of an entire ship and crew, to a distant location and back again, all in a matter of minutes! Although the above may seem fantastic, one must remember, that in the 1940ís the atomic bomb was also being invented. Email me at Bassin4507@AOL.COM

Date: 10/8/1999 7:25:00 PM    Nice, needs more information and maybe some pictures, but isn't this pretty weird?
Date: 10/8/1999 7:59:00 PM  From Authorid: 679    Excellent eye for historical detail! Just as a side note, was anything ever reported about the eventual fate of the Eldridge? It would be interesting to examine the remains(if scrapped). -Marauder
Date: 10/9/1999 1:50:00 AM    this is an o.k. story.....science fiction...but well written.
Date: 10/9/1999 2:02:00 AM    A learning channel account was totaly different from this. It would be more believable if sources were cited along with eye whitness accounts.
Date: 10/9/1999 2:06:00 AM    listen people,
this story is false. well, half true. the u.s. government(navy) did indeed experiment with electromagnetic fields in the early and mid 40's. (i was there) but there were no such teleportations,or other sci-fi crap that happened. indeed it did make the ship, 'Eldridge' invisible to radar...but the cost and size of the experiment plus the health hazards it did impose on crew memebers, namely a type of radiation poisioning and burns, caused the u.s. government to halt the project...sorry bring you to earth on this note, but i'm tired of hearing of this bull....people i have two words for you...GROW UP! thank you
Date: 10/9/1999 6:59:00 AM    For a fiction story, this is up there with the Simpsons where Homer saves nuclear meltdowns at his station by diving down the stacks.
Date: 10/11/1999 2:26:00 AM    The US Navy scutled the Eldridge shortly after the trials.
Date: 10/14/1999 5:43:00 AM    i like this story. im interested in the philidelphia experiment. if you have anything else to send me about the philidelphia experiment send it to ssshark@hotmail.com
Date: 10/19/1999 2:58:00 PM  From Authorid: 1184    We need more evidence. To all of those out there that say this impossible, remember that anything is possible, and imagine if they could do that(if they did) in 1942 what they could do today with our great advancement in technology.
Date: 10/28/1999 5:23:00 AM  From Authorid: 1071    Strange indeed. Fate & UFO magazines have carried good articles on this recently. I find it hard to believe the military can keep secrets about as much as they are accused of. A little disinformation goes a long way.
Date: 11/2/1999 1:04:00 PM    I found this very interesting. Why is invisibilty not around today?
Date: 11/3/1999 2:26:00 AM  From Authorid: 1309    to reply 1: To true  
Date: 11/3/1999 3:40:00 PM    I bet it is true seens Albert Einstein is in it.
Date: 11/4/1999 8:43:00 PM    very well written covers the story well.
Date: 11/7/1999 8:55:00 PM    i have herd this story told better..more detail..but it was ok
Date: 11/12/1999 12:04:00 AM    i saw this on the discovery channel. Supposedly what happened with the ship is that when they teleported back the peoples body parts were seperated. Some dissapeared and supposedly one of the crew men wrote to the government. Saying it was the worse thing he ever went through and that these crew men who were in great shape a lot of them had heart attacks. This was a real experiment and this is not science fiction i saw it on tv.
Date: 11/16/1999 4:00:00 PM    This is a good story and it contained a lot of info, but it could use some pictures.
Date: 11/18/1999 3:36:00 PM    this is greatly true, i was there in the 40's, and as a matter of fact, they're still conducting the experiments in alaska to this very day.
Date: 11/21/1999 11:18:00 AM    I feel that many facts were left out. This story
would be much more interesting if there was more
facts injected.
Date: 1/4/2000 7:17:00 AM    I beleive there was some kind of experiments
performed on the Elderidge in the 40s, however,
the fact that I have heard numerous different twists
in this story leads me to beleive that, although there
may have been some pretty crazy experiments, it is probably blown
way out of proportion by friggin' trekkies, sci-fi freaks,
and anyone else that has a sufficient lack of a life
to do anything better. Look for evidence! Not speculation!
If anyone finds any real compelling evidence or new
information, please let me know. geosmateo@hotmail.com

Date: 1/9/2000 6:15:00 PM    I lIked the story about the Philadelphia Project. I there are anymore reports about this subject or any related please send them to me at gpp01@hotmail.com
Date: 1/10/2000 10:56:00 AM    If the Philidelphia Experiment is false, then why
does anyone care? I think it did happen, and the
Chrono shift happened, several people I have met
were there. The story in address 787 was worse.
Date: 1/12/2000 10:35:00 AM    I too was there, and I know what happened. My cousin was sticking out of the
side of the hull! To deny this is to deny that
we are human, and that we kill.
Date: 1/14/2000 12:23:00 AM    The truth of the matter is that it wasn't a cloaking experiment at all, but rather a experiment in quantum physics, which explains the involement of Albert Einstien, also needed was a extensive electro magnetic field, which also explains the involvment of Nikola Tessla. If you have never heard of him, I strongly suggest looking for information on him, on the web.
Date: 1/27/2000 2:26:00 AM  From Authorid: 4304    Soon we will all have some answers to the question of what really did, or may have happened. My organization is currently completing their research, and we will begin the experiment ourselves (on a much smaller scale). I will report our findings back here at a later date. By the way, if you have seen "back to the future 2" the use of magnetic fields levetated the "skate board". This is a FACT, though limited, this is one example of what can be and has been done. It's no secret, but not easy to research. as to the hecklers who were there... I can promis you this... you were born, raised, conditioned, and brainwashed into complacency. What you don't know won't hurt you??? In all actuality, what you don't know WILL KILL you. Example, we have a host of individuals who were dying from various forms of cancer... they are now alive, well, and healthier than ever before, because they refused to believe the government, and the experts, when they were told nothing more could be done. Seeing isn't always believing, and I believe that if you were there, in 1943, you have no idea what you had seen. If anyone would like to submit a request for research, feel free to mail me at execintl@mail.com
Date: 1/30/2000 2:44:00 PM    Great article of an intriguing subject which whets ones imagination as to its probability of being true. Fascinating but strange why we never hear any more about it. Much like why we don't ever hear about any more trips to the moon? Or in other words did we really go?
Date: 2/11/2000 1:14:00 AM  From Authorid: 4304    I have a web site you can goto which will justtickle your imagination a little, however, it will show and give examples as to what common text book experimants can be done, and give you an idea of what we are capable of.

As a matter of fact, in regard to the moon landings?....ufo's?....etc.... put yourself in the situation, and ask yourself...what if an extra terestrial life form came to my front door? how would you react? for most of the population, violently. Why? Because we have fear instilled in our brains, and the natural reaction is to defend yourself, even if your fear is the only danger. imagine this on a lrger scale, say 1 billion poeple? if you are at this web site, you want to know, but this only means that your getting ready to learn from the safety of your home. Few are truly ready to learn these secrets, and our society provides that this is all sci-fi, all fiction, but only for our safety, and their profit. We are individuals, and free to think on our own, why then, do we choose to stay on a bandwagon? Could millions of poeple be wrong? YES!!!!! check out this sitettp://www.geocities.com/Area51/Shire/3075/maglev.html It will provide the the info needed to get the juices flowing!
Date: 2/11/2000 1:18:00 AM  From Authorid: 4304    by the way... if you are interested in this "cure" for cancer, send an email to thelegacy@iwon.com I will provide you with the research and information you need to understand how & why it works, and if you would like to discuss treatments, I can put you in touch with the Medical Doctors (USA & Overseas), who can help. This is another area where magnets and the philidelphia experiment paved the way for medical science!
Date: 3/1/2000 6:33:00 AM    GREAT STORY>

NEED PICTURES THOUGH
Date: 3/19/2000 1:32:00 PM    Fascinating-need furthur research into these matters to be discussed
Date: 3/22/2000 3:00:00 PM    The Eldridge is possibly in Fort Lauderdale being used as a eating establishment
Date: 3/25/2000 2:13:00 AM  From Authorid: 6539    This gave me all the information I needed to get my report done, thanx. PimpDaddyClowns
Date: 4/8/2000 12:27:00 PM    Ozzyfanvo@yahoo.com

I am surprised at all the information this conspiracy has received which shows that even though this topic is quite obserd that the information that represents it is in fact, real and in anyway, if able to be proven, the possibility of teleportation through the use of quantum physics and electrical impulse is scientifically explainable. I am very excited to see the interest that all you people have in this conspiracy in the hopes of keeping the idea alive and i myself have done extensive research in not only the event that occured but the scientific theory behind it, and i have found that many of the ideas in this article and other articles about USS Eldridge are similarly related, which shows that most of the information isnt a lie but comes from an actual source. i am hoping that some of you will email me on the topic so that we may find out the actual information about this and filter out all of untrue information. If you do have any questoins or comments write to the address shown on the top of this page.
Date: 4/11/2000 4:39:00 PM    Hey pepole if you look back into History and here the things that our great scientist did it is almost ubelievable. Look a Tesla and the things that He did with Magnatism, it is unreal. To not have a open mind would not be good. After all how much do we really Know what our sientist are doing today. I may be wrong but if the pepole of the past were here now with our technology just think of the possibilitys that they could have created.Years ago pepole sat around thinking that we had progressed all we are going to. LOOK AT US NOW.....Think about it, it could be real.
Date: 5/3/2000 2:38:00 AM    It would be much better if there were some picture.
Still it is a great stories.
Date: 5/5/2000 12:34:00 PM    Anything is possible. The most recent information I have seen on a subject somewhat reltated to this is the fact that we are using chemtrails as part of weather experiments and that electomagnetic energy, microwaves and such is involved. You have to wonder where do they really get their ideas for science fiction stories? I would suggest to everyone who reads this to also look up information on Project Haarp based in Gakona, Alaska; chemtrails, weather modification, and the use of electromagnetic energy esp. it's use in weather experiments but also the ability to create earthquakes and cause volcanoes to erupt. Also check into what the government is doing using microwaves to create sound and used for various mind control experiments. This world is crazier than any of us could imagine. Really.
Date: 5/5/2000 12:59:00 PM    The other night on Coast-to Coast radio program,
(the successor program to Art Bell, There was a
guest (a PHD) who told this whole story. He said
that while in the Navy he worked on this project
with Nokola Tesla and I believe he said John von
Neumann. He sounded like he knew what he was
talking about, since he went on for more than an
hour. I have begun to wonder if this is the
technique magicians use to make large vehicles,
such as the space shuttle, apparently disappear.
Date: 5/6/2000 2:55:00 AM    Hard to believe... It's like saying a bunch of kids playing with a toy laser by making it sharper coincidentally invent powerful laser gun. If the story was true I believe that there should have been more starting trouble rather that all functions even better than predicted.
Date: 5/6/2000 1:18:00 PM    also, a few of the crew members recounted that they found themselves some where in 1969 totaly dissorientated, they were not completely mateirial but were visible to the eye. they dissapeared again and were found back again in the the same time, they were labeled skitzophrenic and disscharged from further experimentation.
Date: 5/7/2000 4:30:00 PM    the experiment needs to be recreated.....i know we don't have access to a large ship, but if the stories and theories are correct then we should be able to work the experiment on land
Date: 5/11/2000 11:52:00 AM  ( Admin-2 )   This was a very interesting story. Thank you for sharing this with us.
Date: 5/13/2000 9:46:00 PM    I would have to believe that there was more than simple radar invisibility involved as some will claim. It sounds impossible that a man could create an earthquake several miles wide using a pocket sized device, but Tesla did. However, it is important to remember that anyone near that ship was exposed to tremendous radiation at no doubt very high frequencies and I wouldnt doubt that this creates very slured realities for any spectator. I wonder if perhaps the navy wanted to see what would happen when the ship was exposed to magnetic frequencies matching the resonant/natural frequency of the ship? Never know.
Date: 5/17/2000 7:28:00 PM    I HAVE TO SAY THAT THIS PAGE MUST BE THE BEST THAT I HAVE SEEN ON THE EXPERIMENT. I'M VERY SURPRISED THAT THE US GOVERNMENT OR SECRET SERVICES HAVEN'T WIPED IT AS YET.
Date: 5/25/2000 10:30:00 PM    I have read that the USS Eldridge was given away to Greece after WW2. By the way, for more information there is a complete book on the Philadelphia Experiment: "The Philadelphia Experiment" by Charles Berlitz & William L. Moore; Paperback.
Very good book with more evidence. Sold at Amazon.com
S.F.
Date: 5/29/2000 6:47:00 AM    I thought this page was good, although as others said there were things left out, for example as i read in "nothing in this book is true, but its exactly how things are" (a very good book) it described the teleportation and the bringing back of people years and years later (august 12) and i forget what years. The government had cooridinates on locations where people may suddenly appear again(since there were cases of people missing), there was a case of two men reappearing somewhere near boston im pretty sure (you may have to check that) and another coordinate was sebago lake, maine which no one was ever found, although August 12th 2002 is another date when the people or objects may reappear again, but for now ill be leaving, i suggest you pick up the book that i mentioned earlier, try to find it on the web or something-see ya

Date: 5/29/2000 6:49:00 AM    oops
Date: 5/30/2000 1:24:00 PM    I may have an explaination for the green gas cloud. If you pass an electric current through salt water (works best with salt saturated water) clorine gas is released - which can take on a greenish hue. Clorine gas is very toxic and these sailors would have been exposed for only a short period of time - maybe explaining their apparent sickness.
Date: 6/2/2000 1:02:00 AM    can you pursue this further and in more detail?
Date: 6/2/2000 9:50:00 PM    I am fascinated by the Philidelphia experiment. It is fascinating how the experiment occured and the events surrounding it. What I am interested in know and having difficulty finding out is what the men saw or experienced that made them sick and insane. Was it the future or merely the effects of the teletransprotation. If possible I would love to hear more details surrounding the philidelphia experiment.
Date: 6/5/2000 12:06:00 AM    I've been interested in this story for a while. Are there any books you suggest I look up for more information? Thanks
Date: 6/6/2000 5:32:00 AM    Well written account of a famous mystery
Date: 6/13/2000 11:06:00 PM    I liked this story even though I have heard several other accounts similar but slightly different.Is there any one who was stationed on the Eldridge during the time of the experiment still alive and who'S ID can be verified.Also the log book was missing pages from around the time the experiment was to have taken place.If anyone has any more info I would like to hear about it .This is my favorite subject.My email address is othello_27@yahoo.com.-Othello
Date: 7/19/2000 6:30:00 PM    Very intesting story. The story surrounding the Philadelphia experiment facinates me. Though I don't find it all to convincing, buti'm open to any information or research anyone has to contribute on the subject to change my views, especialy on the science and tecnology that could produce such an effect. spider8810@aol.com
Date: 7/19/2000 7:03:00 PM    Lets think about this for a second. A lot of the people here claim that they were there during the experiment back in 1940. Now if you do math, even if they were only 30, when they were working on the project, they would be 90 years old today. How many 90 year olds surf the web. Think about it. Ace
Date: 7/19/2000 7:26:00 PM    I am with Ace. I read all these things and I have also read a lot about the Philidelpia Project. There are only three known people that survived the Philidelphia Project. Al Bielek, Preston Nichols and Duncan Cameron. So that means all you other ones are fakes.
Date: 7/20/2000 11:19:00 PM    Nice story, does need some pictures. The way you wrote it up was excellent, I could understand everything.

Date: 7/21/2000 6:11:00 AM    Has anyone heard about how tessla's brain was removed and is still (alive) and used in experiments?
Date: 7/21/2000 6:16:00 AM    Has anyone heard about how tessla's brain was removed and is still (alive) and used in experiments?
Date: 7/23/2000 11:59:00 PM    i think it is a great story, and i have heard that the reamains are somwhere in a desert
Date: 8/6/2000 7:46:00 AM    this is great i loved reading this i have just read of an expreimen by a guy from canada who created poltergeist activity using Electromagnetic fields generated using, tesla coils, rf transmiters and signal generators
which made things fly through the air, fire to apear out of concrete, metal to either to twist and bend, shatter into peices or become white hot without scorching any of the surounding area
and some of this was recorded on video and documented in books. so i totally beleive that the Philidelphia experiment is possible i also have a copy of "The Philidelphia Experiment" written by Charles Berlitz which has accounts of the letters by carlos m Allende ( please e-mail me if any one has any comments of i have just said at sgt.philko@lineone.net )
Date: 8/30/2000 4:42:00 AM    we americans r CRAZY! DOIN SUCCH USELESSTHINGS INSTEAD OF FEEDING THE POOR !
Date: 8/30/2000 6:30:00 AM    My brother David, told me about Tessla and this story was mentioned but your story dosen't mention Nickol Tessla, or his Coils. Why?
Date: 9/28/2000 10:09:00 PM    good reding
Date: 9/28/2000 11:18:00 PM    My grandfather was a independant scientist in the 40's and 50's. He later died in a plane crash in 1957 along with a team of scientists. My grandmother would tell stories of how crazy my grandfather was. She did comfirm that he was contracted by the U.S. government and he was experimenting with military defense projects. She said one time he talked about bending light and taking a beam of light pointed in one direction and making it reapearing in another part of the room. My grandmother thought he was crazy. Was he?
Date: 9/29/2000 3:49:00 AM    To all of you who say that this is a good science fiction piece, or that more evidence is required before you believe it. I'll tell you first hand how true it is. I was there. I watched it. AND I lost a friend who was on the ship. Eyes don't lie, I don't lie, and my heart doesn't lie. It's all too real, and by the hell of God I wish it weren't so. I hate to say this to the non believers, but this happened just as realistically as you are reading this. To those who say this is a false story, I can merely laugh at your closed mind and hope that you eventually accept what cannot be explained or understood. To any of you that might've been witness to this incedent...stick together. It's a frightening thing to remember, but we know the truth, and don't forget that truth. =)
Date: 9/29/2000 3:55:00 AM    to the one that said that the americans are crazy for doing this type of experimentation instead of feeding the poor...my heart sobs everyday because I agree with you... =(
Date: 9/29/2000 5:35:00 AM    Wow, good stuff. The Learning Channel had a good piece on the PE last night. (Prophecies III). That was also well done. All the accounts here correspond with the show exactly. Did they really teleport and/or defied the bound of the space/time continuim? I beleive so. Many others beleive so... Just wish people today could study the remains of the lost seaman and the ship. With today's technology we could answer a few questions about that day in 1943...

Date: 9/29/2000 10:08:00 AM    the philidelphia experiment the goverment try to cover it up, and for the gentleman who said he was ther you grow up, and a C.I Officer for the military I do have top secert clearance, and as I was in washington I did some looking and asked question. the ship did disapear and t did travel through time itself, the goverenment is trying under ground if you know what I mean to profect this , so far it has not been succuess. but we have learn a lot to put or military equipment from being seen under radar, so who ever said this is science fiction, will it is all true
Date: 9/29/2000 11:04:00 AM    First of Eistein proved that GRAVITY (not Magnetic waves) bend light.
Although, Eistein did say that GRAVITY and MAGNETIC WAVES are related (Univeral Field Theory)
(SAME CHART, DIFFERENT FREQUECY)but he could not prove it. Just because there on
same chart does not mean they share the same characteristics. As an example would be
that micro waves bounce off objects and radio waves do not. Same chart
different frequency and DIFFERENT CHARACTERISTICS like gravity and magnetic waves.

Date: 9/30/2000 5:12:00 AM    I was there. My left pinkie toe was fused to the left pinkie toe toenail. The doctor said it was just a hangnail but I know better. It was a bunck of govt. stuff.

The ship was allegedly sold to some company in Greece.

However, I strongly want to disprove Einstein's work being involved with this project. I am working on that part.
Date: 10/1/2000 5:42:00 AM    where is the concrete evedence. nothing new has
come out that is testable in the last twenty-five
years since i first heard this story!
Date: 10/3/2000 4:20:00 PM    great story but does anyone have any idea when the us government is finally going to inform the world on the discoveries that they have made in the past 60 years. what are they waiting , i think the public is ready.
Date: 10/3/2000 5:15:00 PM    does anyone know where to go and read up on 'bob lazars' gravity amplifiers(anti-gravity devices)
e-mail me at abritish@hotmail.com
Date: 10/3/2000 8:22:00 PM    OK who were the witnesses that came forward????
Date: 10/4/2000 1:47:00 AM    Cool story, but where's the cream filling? This is general information that is mostly already known.
Date: 10/5/2000 3:13:00 PM    Awesome info, great read.
Date: 10/6/2000 10:23:00 PM    I have seen pictures, beilve it or not i dont care, that have shown the radiation burns, but more entriging is the picture (bird's eye veiw) of the port. Only problem is that there is only half of a ship there to see it goto http://swiftfalcon4.tripod.philidelphiaprojects.com
Date: 10/6/2000 10:52:00 PM    im am not a parinoid freak. I am a quantum physics Professor at Arizona Tech. When you ask me these questions on your message board, it reminds me of an experiment a pupil of mine once performed. I'll simplify it so that most or all of you can understand.
He fired a lazer-beam between an immensly strong group of electromagnets. Strong enough to make a keychain pull from your pocket(which happened to me). The magnets bent the light amd seemed to cause it to "break" in some areas and yet reappear and be in another area down the line as if never disrupted.
As for Einstiens role in this, well the man was a pacifast but upon relising the need to disban the nazis he decided that man should have a little something weather he could handle it or not.
Date: 10/12/2000 2:44:00 AM    Why do all the people who claim to have been at the experiment, or be a leading scientist have terrible spelling. Doesn't this invalidate their claims somewhat? Gwyn
Date: 10/12/2000 3:37:00 AM  From Authorid: 13283    They were adversely affected by the radiation. And when you age your mind is not as sharp.  
Date: 10/13/2000 7:11:00 PM    The accounts descibed here are in full truth to this observer. All accidents within the military are most always covered up.this article describes the exact experiance that took place those two instances. This site is very informative.
Date: 10/22/2000 11:36:00 PM    Try the freedom of information act. There must be more documentation if there is anything to the story.
Date: 10/24/2000 2:38:00 PM    Nicoli Telsa refused to work on this project and died in front of two government agents. The equipment was based on some of his original experiments. All this information is true, our government is staging a large coverup.
Date: 10/25/2000 1:40:00 PM    heard about this from a kid at school. decided to take a look for myself. overall -a good story
Date: 10/25/2000 7:53:00 PM    I never really knew much about the Philadelphia Experiment, until recently I saw a program on it. I began searching online for more information and thats how I found your web page.

Date: 11/2/2000 6:30:00 AM    thank god for einstein and tesla's ideas and some
rather practical applications such as helping win
wars for us,(not to mention making the universe a
lot smaller). people who doubt need to get a life.
Date: 11/6/2000 3:13:00 PM    What happened to those men who were discharged as unfit? The Merkaba experiment is not new. That type of teleportation was done as far back as the time of Atlantis and Lemuria. To dematerialize and materialize again the speed in which it is done could cause one to become ill if not done correctly. Travelling through space and time without directive is also dangerous. The same as the Burmuda Triangle effect. Because there is no directive, things that disappear, example, the aircrafts that disappeared, have never returned. That's why it's said the Burmuda Triangle is radical. I believe there still is some one within the U.S. department who are still trying to perfect this instrument. Have they tried using crytals?
Date: 11/7/2000 2:57:00 PM    I think it's great that there is actual information and proof that time travel can happen!
I had hoped that there would have been more information on the crew members aboard and what had happened to them!
Date: 11/8/2000 12:28:00 PM    I have read the book by William L. Moore and Charles Berlitz. To actually consider this as containing some truth, more evidence is needed (just like all the other conspiracy theories, ufo encounters, etc.) If, for instance, someone found the newspaper article Carl Allen mentioned in one of his letters, it would greatly substantiate the story. Otherwise, I'm afraid I'd have to put it down to wishful thinking and an (admittedly intriguing) fabrication
Date: 11/10/2000 7:07:00 PM    its good that you can do the maths if the person was 30 but back in the 40's saliors were 17 or 18 so you take off 12 years ,still it makes them 80 years old but why wouldnt they surf the net dont there have grandchildern or arent there allowed to have interest in techonolgy today considering the time that their from?
Date: 11/12/2000 2:47:00 PM    I would like to see information on Dr. Einsteins Unified Field Theory, for personal study. If anyone knows where to view informaition about the UFT, refer me to the address.
Date: 11/12/2000 3:42:00 PM  From Authorid: 16671    I saw the movie, I thought it was just a story, did this really happen?  
Date: 11/13/2000 5:13:00 PM    I was told that some of those missing men were found 20 years later in other countries still in uniform. When found they still thought that the year was 1940
Date: 11/15/2000 2:39:00 PM    Anyone wanting more information on this secret project please contact me at casaffer@rectec.net.
Date: 11/16/2000 7:17:00 PM    I agree with the person below who stated that the project caused radiation burns and was scrapped due to power constrictions...if anyone had two 2megawatt transmitters on a ship, well, imagine a hamster in a microwave. Bad stuff. Interesting idea tho.
Date: 11/20/2000 6:21:00 AM    Well written but like all conspiracy's very little if factual eyewitness evidence really exists. Elctromagnetic generators do need massive amounts of energy to be operated. THe energy fields they create, if not confined by a lead containment field, will cause serious burns, sterilty, cancer and death. Today this technology exists as the common household microwave oven
Date: 11/29/2000 10:02:00 AM    There is another site like this, and it has pictures, and the same story. Everyone ought to check it out. I can't remember the address right now, but I'll post it later today when I find it.

Date: 12/6/2000 12:01:00 PM    Well, I enjoyed the story but I do wish that there was a video or sound clip on the episode you did on it.
Date: 12/6/2000 3:41:00 PM    Pictures!!
Date: 12/9/2000 3:44:00 AM    This is a true experiment and very much did happen there were four men from the experiment that lived but were said to keep going in and out of thin air they would fade away and they called it freeze time or froze in time .
The men would start to fade then they couldnt move and had to be touched by another person to come back into focus and if they werent touched they would be froze and invisible until they either reappeared or were touched on the skin
after the experiment the four guys went to a bar where they scared a waitress so badly she had to quit working and this was also wrote up by a reporter but it was probably didnt have too good of credibility.The men are still alive
but they have to wear a belt that makes them keep from fading away and its worn all the time and thats pretty much a quarter of what I picked up on this experiment if your interested in stuff like this you should visit
www.williamcooper.com
so have a good one and cheers fellas.
Date: 12/15/2000 1:29:00 PM    Excellent story about World War II...
still seems hard to believe though.
Date: 12/15/2000 6:44:00 PM    I believe that all things are possible but, one must feel that this technology would have never have been given up on. Especially the cloaking aspects of it, not to mention the benefits of chronoshifting or teleporting large objects.Therefore it is my opinion that these stories are fiction manifesting from our need to see that there is more than meets the eye. Let me tell that that is abundantly true my friend and all you need to see it is faith in Jesus Christ.

Date: 12/16/2000 9:16:00 AM    though teleportation may be possible, my theory is that they didn't actually teleport, but rather that the reflected light traveled to the other port showing only an image of the ship, thus making it invisible at the test site. if anybody else has a theory e-mail me at grayfox700@yahoo.com
Date: 12/18/2000 12:22:00 AM    I think that it is a really good article, and that it really did happen. I also think that the goverment tries to cover up information on things like this all the time. If anyone would like to discuss this further with me, you can e-mail me at carnage205@hotmail.com. Thanks.
Date: 12/18/2000 6:32:00 PM    This is my first time reading this and i was

right now!!!
Date: 12/21/2000 6:39:00 AM    Excelent paragraph. Ever since I played a game call
Command and Conquer: Red Alert, it included the

and it turned out it was.
Date: 12/26/2000 6:34:00 AM    I thought that there was a lot more involved. This artical seemed to dance around other alledged incidents. Although it was not very informative, it was interesting to see others tackling this strange phenomanon on the net. Thanks

Date: 1/5/2001 9:43:00 PM    If that's how it went, that must have been horrid. I can't imagine some of that. I hope that that's not how it happened. I've also heard some of the men bursted into flames. I don't know, but I hope the effects to the humans weren't real. I don't really like the teleportation idea either. I like the cloaking idea though. This is just plain scary though. I'm going to look into more of this.
Date: 1/6/2001 12:57:00 AM    the story was well writen, and my opion is that yes it's probally true, but i would think we would have seen or heard more about it by now.. we all know that if the gov. has stumbled onto something that big they would surely continue research on it, but due to the bad publicity, they would probally find a secluded spot to continue testing.. also i do believe that the gov. and nasa both know and are keeping the world from knowing alot of things that we all would be in aww over, but until they decide that the time is right, we will just have to guess and imagine. i enjoy reading about things that are unbelieveable and that have some facts that can back them up, so if anyone has anything that they feel is interesting. i would appreciate recieving the info, thanks kenn101@hotmail.com

Date: 1/10/2001 1:06:00 AM    If anyone thinks this story is true, take a gander and investigate long island, there is a public facility there that does not let the public go to? seems strange huh? some people say that they are experimenting with time travel and teleportation. It's curious to also know that the movie back to the future, the little flux capacitor that makes time travel possible takes 1.21 gigiwatts of power to operate and at the end of the island where these things are taking place use approximately 1.1 gigiwatts of power per month. This amount of power can light the entire eastern sea board for one month. so how is one little place using this much power??? I think there is some serious things going on there.. think about it.

Date: 1/16/2001 8:30:00 PM    Interesting story. It is very well written. There is one big problem with it. Unless anyone can come up with some physical evidence, I find it hard to believe. The same goes for UFO's and other related things. cassie11@ev1.net
Date: 1/22/2001 11:19:00 AM    where did you get the data as far as how many watts are being used in long island. would like to have my uncle investigate it. if said is true ther may ne something going on and maybe a time to gather people together and bust down the door { including national news to capture the info aka protection for us }
Date: 1/23/2001 1:29:00 PM    What ever hapened to the crews family's. If this was real why didn't it ster up a comotion, there are to many unexplained things in this story for it to be true. Randy21720094095s@aol.com
Date: 1/23/2001 5:48:00 PM    Im not so sure about this one. Why wern't there stories on the news? Wouldn't this be making some sort of history? There needs to be more facts. Reading down the list of comments there were four survivors, then three survivors, then survivors who still disappear on occasion. What?! There is no solid story. Wern't the survivors questioned, or examined by doctors? Wern't there any official documents or pictures? Wouldn't newspapers have taken pictures? Interesting story, but not too solid.
Date: 1/25/2001 11:44:00 PM    You forgot to mention the two tesla coils that
were pahsed to pulse in a controllable sequence
and how when Vonneuman took over thee project
he tried unsucessfully to add a third tesla coil
Date: 1/30/2001 5:19:00 PM    I do believe this really happened. It is difficult for readers that are not familiar with quantum physics to understand that this really happened. It is a part of science that needs further investigation and more documentation and evidence of that it exists. "Science is a powerful tool and knowledge is a dangerous weapon"

Date: 2/7/2001 12:41:00 AM    The story is very fasinating but also pretty vauge on details. I am doing my own research on this topic and hope to find better answers.
Date: 2/8/2001 5:01:00 PM    If one takes into account the heat generated by all the special equipment onboard a vessle of this sort, at sea...A high freq. high amplitude magnetic field could very well disguise it from radar. The magnetic field could in turn have a reaction with metalic elements (electrolysis) in the salt water and release the before mentioned green (chlorine) cloud, which does as a matter of fact make one nausous. The build up of heat could possibly create an area of higher humidity around the ship and thus magnify and reflect the light off in a direction predetermined by the magnetic field. On the other hand what is the exact difference between magnetics and gravemetrics, last time I checked no one has proven one way whether or not an energy field of any type has the ability to effect light. All considering experts are still arguing wether light is waves or particles or both.

Date: 3/9/2001 10:19:00 AM    They did make a movie about this! about five of them in fact. The most recent was in the mid-eighties and called "the philidelphia Experiment" and takes some creative leeway with the facts. Although the movie is loosely base on the real events it is still a pretty interesting flick. Z
Date: 3/11/2001 10:08:00 AM    That seems unbleivable thats something that could really happen. i dont see why they dont perfect it and make it a military tatic.

Date: 3/11/2001 11:04:00 PM    ELDRIDGE hadn't even finished construction at the time of the author's first date. She was never scrapped, and was transferred to Greece. Here's some real history:
ELDRIDGE (DE-173) was launched 25 July 1943 by Federal
Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co., Newark, N.J.; sponsored by
Mrs. John Eldridge, Jr., widow of Lieutenant Commander
Eldridge; and commissioned 27 August 1943, Lieutenant C. R.
Hamilton, USNR, in command.

Between 4 January 1944 and 9 May 1945, ELDRIDGE sailed
on the vital task of escorting to the Mediterranean men and
materials to support Allied operations in north Africa and
on into southern Europe. She made nine voyages to deliver
convoys safely to Casablanca, Bizerte, and Oran.

ELDRIDGE departed New York 28 May 1945 for service in
the Pacific. En route to Saipan in July, she made contact
with an underwater object and immediately attacked but no
results were observed. She arrived at Okinawa 7 August for
local escort and patrol, and with the end of hostilities a
week later, continued to serve as escort on the
Saipan-Ulithi-Okinawa routes until November. ELDRIDGE was
placed out of commission, in reserve, 17 June 1946. On 15
January 1951, she was transferred under the Mutual Defense
Assistance program to Greece, with whom she serves as
destroyer escort LEON (D-54).

[LEON was disposed of by the Greek Navy in 1991, but
she was retained as a training hulk.

way or the other. However, Tesla Coils do exist and the possibilities are real. Cool stuff none the less....

Date: 3/12/2001 8:48:00 AM    P.S. Coils, that is!
Date: 3/12/2001 1:04:00 PM    This article would have recieved a "great" rating if there was more source material. However this is indeed well writen.
Date: 3/12/2001 6:08:00 PM    Great article! I need more details!
Date: 3/12/2001 7:25:00 PM    some may call me stupid but I believe it happened. maybe i just think its fun to believe crazy stuff like this. if anyone wants to know; the eldridge ended up in greece for a while until they lost it. It didnt disapear though it just ended up in a scrap yard and was torn apart. a side story to this is that after the experiment some soldiers were seen fit to leave and went to a bar later, one of them got drunk and two sailors started fighting and were seen to disapear when they started fighting. another side not is that one of the scientist that knew a lot about the experiment was going to tell everyone the truth but supposily committed suicide a few days before he was going to tell everyone; some say he was killed for what he knew, personaly i think he was killed. im really interested in this so if anyone has anymore info on this i would like to know. iamnotquer@hotmail.com
Date: 3/12/2001 7:36:00 PM    I just watched a story on the History Channel about this very subject. According to the History Channel, Carlos Allende admitted that he fabricated the entire story.
Date: 3/12/2001 9:43:00 PM    Like any other technology, humans would exploit it no matter what the danger or ethical implications may arise. Look at cloning for example. This is why I think this story is interesting, but obviously science fiction; how much further experimentation has been done with 'invisibility'?
Date: 3/12/2001 9:47:00 PM    what is your source to this story of the philidelphia project? Is it personnal experience, document, etc?
Date: 3/12/2001 9:52:00 PM    This technology does exist. I was smoking this stuff my roommate has. I wasn't sure what it was. It smelled like aregano. All of a sudden this purple haze surrounded me and I woke up later in my bed covered in potato chips and butter toffee. I don't know what happened or where I went! I felt kind of queezy too. Could what happened to me be what happened to everyone on that ship. If you've had the same experience let me know. My email address is steverinaz@aol.com
Date: 3/13/2001 1:38:00 PM    There is no point in doing a statistical survey on how many believe and how much is believable. That is because there is a tremendous disparity in the science education between quauntum physicists and the rest of us. We frankly don't know what the hell is possible. The a-bomb was theorized, researched, and used over half a century ago --but how many of us today understand the atomic theory of that bomb? So, sure something significant probably did happened. Learn some physics and you may discover that some posibilities are at least as scary as this story. Yeah, I believe everything said was possible. Think for a moment. The Navy would be afraid of the social-political consequences of the common knowledge of these possibilities. I just saw a documentary where the Navy stated that the ship was never even in Philly. (that statement raises my eyebrows.) Consider the effects of these issues AIDS,cloning. Maybe most of us don't want to know what is possible.
Date: 3/14/2001 3:22:00 AM    I would say that the story of people being stuck in the bulkheads and decks of the eldridge is crap.
However the stories of the men being mentally damaged are true as the electro magnetic fields caused a sound that would be intollerable.
I do believe that the experiment was a true test and it was indeed successful, but not at the expence of the sanity of the crew.
Date: 3/15/2001 6:38:00 PM    Sounds like the navy merely pointed a high powered radar transmitter (microwave) across the deck of the ship- and crew- causing ship to dissapear on radar as well as cook the crew. No big mistery. Try walking in front of the radar of a F-15 while "on" and see what happens. Your brain cooks.
Date: 3/16/2001 1:31:00 PM    I totaly believe this I have meard about it many places even my preacher has spoken about it
Date: 3/16/2001 1:58:00 PM    Teleportation may be the wronw word though. Sounds more like dimensional travel.
Date: 3/17/2001 12:57:00 AM    I myself can neither confirm nor deny the
existence of The Philidelphia Project. However it
is rumored that an old friend of my family
actually has functioning parts of the original
machine used to make the Eldrige vanish.
I myself have never met this man and therefore
can not verify this rumor...

I was told that the man recieved the machine after
becomeing friends with a patient who was near
death in the hospital where he worked. Before the
patient died he told him that he had been a high
ranking naval officer involved in Project Rainbow.
He then told him about the storage facility where the
machine was.
Our friend aledgedly went to the warehouse and
somehow managed to steal most of the machine.
It is intact and they actually have been able to
turn it on but not without completely melting all
of the resistors in it. They hope to one day make
the proper modifications and see if the machine
actually works.

Date: 3/17/2001 4:36:00 AM    Several questions. Have any members of the crew of the Eldridge, being on board the vessel during the period the experiments took place, been interviewed in relation to what actually happened?
Given that the vessel was built of steel, it stands to reason that the inside of the vessel would have electrically resembled a "Faraday Cage", effectively preventing any incursion of electro-magnetic radiation, hence shielding those personnel inside the vessel from the radiation. How were those inside the vessel affected?

Date: 3/17/2001 1:14:00 PM    I'm not saying wether I beleive this or not, because like most of you people I've yet to do the research. All I know is there is something interesting here. If you few are really interested in the truth. You might want to start with the Universal Field Theory. Stop asking for reseach and research it. People saying they were there and it didn't happen, should give proof just as they say the story should. The episode I saw on t.v., said a man wrote a book about u.f.o.'s and a man that disappeared from the ship sent the navy a copy of this book with anwsers to questions of the Universe, this may be added material, because there was no way to test what this book said, However they showed the book. Including an insight to the philadelphia project. Wehter of not any of this is true, I know not. However, I plan to reseach all aspects of it. Peoples names given in this place like Nikola Tessla, Carlos Allende, John Von Neumann, Al Bielek, Preston Nichols possibly Nicholas, and Duncan Cameron. Most of this may be gibberish manly from sites like this that add and add till you have people beleiving what they saw on t.v. no matter what channel was all true. I saw it on an educational channel. It doesn't mean it's true. T.v. stations like ratings just like sci-fi channels. Electro magnetic waves are however not to well known about things in the universe. Because it has different strenghts and cant be observed easily. As for the people saying they were there. Why not leave your name including everything you think you know, and if this was a physics experiment in Quantum mechanics, There is no way Einstein would have been there. He thought Quantum physics was ridiculous. I am only 17 and it seems like I have a more logical approach to finding the truth. Than most of yall. Peace Gods. I hope yall find the truth as do I hope I do. By the way to people who want to reply to what I have typed. My email is Intelligence36@Hotmail.com, and my Name Derek
Date: 3/17/2001 9:16:00 PM    With all we have achieved this strikes me as well within the realm of "possibility". We do need a whale of a lot more data however.
Date: 3/18/2001 1:55:00 AM    Well, all I wanted was the "whole" story, in order to make my own judgement. I guess this is as close to the truth as anything I've read on the subject. Thank you.
Date: 3/19/2001 5:30:00 PM    sure......I believe you
Date: 3/19/2001 7:30:00 PM    I Thought IT was Crammed With info Great stuff I mean I read A little Book once longer Than this And didnt get half the stuff Excellent!!
Dusty (somebody)
Date: 3/21/2001 5:01:00 PM    Could Be a lot better
Date: 3/22/2001 1:16:00 PM    maybe we could get detailed instructions on how we could begin to build our own machine. All new technologies begin with unexpected results, but then the final product becomes our image of what we set out to achive in the first place. To accoplish a radar avassion machine we must continue to experiment, and only after a sufficent amount of tries we will achive our goal.
Date: 3/22/2001 1:35:00 PM    Yeah i belive it. Its all Quantam Theories stuff. As a matter of fact i am using the same principles to build a new type of "spacecraft" for a science project at school. If any one wants to tell me anything important> Manisfestation@aol.com.

Date: 3/24/2001 9:32:00 AM  From Authorid: 21376    I think you should read the book, The Montalk Project,It blew my mind it says the Philidalphia Experiment was there in Montalk on Long Island NY.Interesting and Freak you out reading. I don't remember the Author but It sure made me think! I live 20 miles from there.Please read it. Diana

Date: 4/2/2001 12:48:00 PM    I heard this storey at school and it got so intrested that I searched for this and after had reading it It seems fairly believable I'm sure that there are a few incorrect details but thats the storey and has to be true I think it's great but I'm unsatisfied as in I need to know more so please some pictures more details would be great but overall intreging storey but I don't understand that after this great discovery why they wouldn't pursuit in this testing?
Date: 4/3/2001 12:57:00 AM    USS Eldridge (DE-173), 1943-1951
USS Eldridge, a 1240-ton Cannon class destroyer escort built at Newark, New Jersey, was commissioned in August 1943. She was employed on escort duties in the Atlantic until May 1945, when she departed for service in the Pacific. Eldridge was decommissioned in July 1946 and placed in the Reserve Fleet. In January 1951, she was transferred to the Greek Navy, in which she served as Leon into the 1990s.
She remains intacted in a Greece shipyard.
Date: 4/3/2001 7:35:00 PM    I only heard of the PX today, I was eating at Denny's disscussing quantum theories with some friends (yes i have a small social life). Anyway I was completely blown away!! I am interested in learning more, I will be doing my own research but if you have valuable notes or info please
e-mail me at shadow_03@usa.net Thanx- P.S. an
idea discussed at Denny's to the fusing of people to the ships hull is if the ship did indeed travel that fast or through such a continuium then it could be possible that the particles of the ship stopped all movement while the atomic particles of the sailors vibrated at an insane rate, resulting in effect of men passing through steel or a "solid" [electrons are (if they exist) a truly amazing outlet to study]
Date: 4/5/2001 6:09:00 PM    I found this article very intreging, I recently heard of the Philidelphia Project and was curious about it this was the first page I found and its almost exactly what I heard at school.
Date: 4/15/2001 8:23:00 PM    Tessla was a genius. Look at what he accomplished and got little or no credit for. Couple his great mind with that of Einstein, then think of the possibilities. People accept Einsteins theories although many have never been proven because we lack the knowledge to see what he and Tessla to mention a few could hypothesize. There were many secret projects which were unimaginable at that time. wasn't the atomic bomb one? Who would have thought splitting an atom would have such consequences, but they did. I never thought much of bending light, but sceintists have concluded that the strong magnetic field of a black hole can bend light. If you can bend light, then you can alter time (isn't that what Einstein said?) Something happened! We may never know the truth. Maybe that's good because many of us probably could not handle it. Who is John Galt?
Date: 4/20/2001 12:53:00 AM    WW2 encouraged alot of new technology in the 40's and 50's. If for arguments sake the Philidelphia Experiment accidentally paved way for teleport technology, where is this technology now, and who would be using it and why. Many things can happen over 50 years. This has been a food for thought production. danzem@pnc.com.au
Date: 4/21/2001 10:54:00 AM    Wow... that sounds so cool =) Kinda like in half-life with the resonence cascade. But anyway, even though I don't really care that this happened, I do believe it has paved the way for some really cool things.

Active camoflauge is being developed to help fight rural terrorism. It acts nearly the same as what has been described, but it uses NOTHING like electromagnetic fields to produce light refraction. Also, it doesn't make things invisible; rather, is has the same effect as what is seen in the movie "Predator". There are two types: personnel and vehicular. The personnel version of active camoflague uses a "crystal-spray" (which is the best way I can describe it) which does refract the light around the person using it. Vehicular active camoflague uses a special type of fiber optic wiring wrapped around the vehicle and actually produces an image of what's directly on the other side. From far away, it resembles rising heat waves.

Date: 5/6/2001 11:23:00 AM  From Authorid: 22440    I've been very interested in that experiment since the first time I heard of it.Great reading..........  
Date: 10/29/2001 9:19:00 AM  From Authorid: 16376    very interesting story  
Date: 1/8/2002 10:49:00 AM  From Authorid: 47699    The story you have related here has always absolutely fascinated me. I truly do appreciate the fact that you were willing to take the time and trouble to research it and then write so extensively about it and in such detail. I think that you may enjoy my submissions as well and you are more than welcome to do so if you want to check them out.  
Date: 1/29/2002 10:17:00 PM  From Authorid: 47296    Wow! This story sure generated a lot of comments over the the past two years or more. While the timeline and ships log of the Eldridge makes it almost impossible that she could have been the ship involved, there is another ship who's timeline may fit. That is DE-168, the USS Amick. When this ship was not on convoy duty, it was doing testing of various systems designed to protect ships. As a side note, the Navy does use equipment called "degaussing", which is designed to nullify a ship's natural magnetic field, so that it may pass through a mine infested area without setting off magnetic mines. This system was being tested in 1943, and remains in use today. How does it work? By wrapping coils around the inside of the ship, and then passing an electric current through those coils. When the coils are set to certain levels for where the ship is located, it can make the largest ship seem not much larger than a small motor boat to a magnetic mine. While in the Navy, I worked with degaussing equipment, and much of what I have read on the "Philadelphia Experiment" sounds more like degaussing testing. ...<Warrior Spirit>  
Date: 6/17/2002 9:02:00 PM  From Authorid: 55226    I want you people to know that we know have the technology and technological know how to travel at neer light speed and the technology to travel through time. from what i have read if i'm correct a super sonic jet going at mach 11 with an atomic clock went fast enough to speed up the clock by 5 seconds. this may not sound alot but is infact a huge development in our technological understanding with this in mind we are also in theroy able to have teleportation and other forms of neer light travel.
Date: 6/17/2002 9:24:00 PM  From Authorid: 55226    in the clokeing matter i would believe that the Stealth fighter was a pice of techology that came out of this. if evades radar detection with the use of a synthetic material that is bent and dissrupted in areas bounceing radar waves in all different directions and thus makes it almost impossible to detect the air craft and also a lab in some collage and they have successfully teleported electrons, protrons, and are finishing up on neutrons, they hope in a couple years to transport whole atoms, after that molocules, then single celled creatures, and in 50 years time able to trasport multi-celled creatures.

with this in mind these are collages doing this which goes to say that the government has already teleported atoms and are moveing onto moleicoules.

Date: 6/18/2002 9:29:00 PM  From Authorid: 55423    for those who think teleportation of anything is not possible think again buddies.
http://www.anu.edu.au/pad/
Albert Einstein probably already made a teleportation machine, who knows what could have happened to it. The story about the invisibilty its totally believable think about it the government keeps whatever info it has to itself. Just because we can't do it today does not mean it couldnt have been done a long time ago. Teleportation and Invisibility are no more fiction it now has become really if you need the link for the teleportation its up there.
Date: 6/19/2002 6:14:00 PM  From Authorid: 55226    it was once thought ludikris to fly and now we have the air plane, it was once thought ludikris that there can be more solar systems other than our own and we are findeing hundreds a year, it was ludikris in thought that the earth is not that center of the universe and we now know this is not true. so it might be impossible to think we can teleport things for some of you but others know its a possibility. ~Senneca~
