It was on this day, October 28th 1943, that the Philadelphia Experiment – Project Rainbow, long a topic of controversy and debate – was attempted by the US Navy to create a ship undetectable by magnetic mines and-or radar. With whispered talk of invisibility projects and mind control, truth behind this project will never be made public..
These experiments proved to be far different and much more dangerous than ever expected, and however bizarre it seems, far too many coincidences mean it must to some extent be based on truth. Technical data holds far too much credence to be ignored, though stories such as whispers of men freezing in time, travelling through time, or becoming becoming part of bulkheads or even the deck of the ship. itself.
During the 1930’s, legendary scientist Nikola Tesla got involved in experimenting with moving through the Time/Space continuum and the possibility of invisibility through the use of electricity. In 1939 research moved to Princeton’s Institute of Advanced Studies, near Philadelphia, and did manage make small objects invisible, presenting this technology to the military, who wanted to pursue it.
In 1943 a test using domestic animals was conducted, on USS Eldridge, the animals placed in metal cages on the deck. The ship did apparently become invisible but on reappearing many animals were missing or irradiated and burned, so humans tests were ruled out. Despite the obvious dangers, the USS Eldridge, with full crew underwent the Philadelphia Experiment on October 28, 1943.
The generators were fired up and switches were thrown, after which, as before he ship disappeared, all seeming well. Yet according to Eldridge’s deck log and war diary, at no time was she actually in Philadelphia..the government perhaps covering up because of national security.
In a search for a plausible answer, it has been suggested that perhaps the Philadelphia Experiment was an attempt at making magnetic mines invisible – degaussing – but she did vanish for about 4 whole hours, transported through space and time, according to some. Upon her reappearance, there was a greenish haze on deck.
Some crew were on fire, some seemingly insane. Every man was ill, there were instances of heart attacks and death. Crew members were fused with the super structure of the ship, buried in the deck or walls, while others had simply disappeared and were never seen again, but what had happened in the missing four hours included, according to witnesses, her being beamed 40 years into the future to Montauk, New York.
