Apologies if this is in the wrong section, wasn't sure. Talked to a retired-military relative over the holidays. Can't remember how this came up but he was telling me about the testing of a short-burst, laser cannon/laser gun kind of thing somewhere on the Great Salt Lake. The salt bed was used somehow as a giant conductor, I believe? Can't recall if that's exactly what it was, but I know salt is a good conductor of electricity.

I was told that a friend had told him that when the gun fired it knocked a lot of people on the ground, as a result of a massive jolt going through the salt. Is there info. on this testing somewhere? A cursory look hasn't turned up anything.

Try looking for laser testing at the Dugway Proving Ground or the Bonneville
Salt Flats. Those are nearby areas that are often used for scientific and/or military testing.

Sounds similar to a part of "Henry Deacon's" story.... or wait am I confusing him with somebody else? Either way, very cool.... but also very very scary.

Yeah, that Henry Deacon guy has talked about a laser project but I read it was in California, I think?

I also read about a UFO group in Utah going to the desert one night a few years ago (which jibes with the time period I was told) and seeing some weird stuff going on at Dugway - incredibly bright lights, weird smells, weird fog, radio problems, people getting sick, etc.

Deacon's LASER story was about an Air Force LASER being tested in Hunter Liggett, California.

Deacon had a UFO encounter at Dugway, but that was a different subject, and was before his work at Livermore.

Very intresting it was for a weapon though I wonder who we would use it on it doesnt seem useful in the middle east diffinately to costy for that to kill a bunch of terrorists I think not.
