THE PHILADELPHIA PROJECT PROJECT RAINBOW AND THE USS ELDRIDGE In July 1943, the destroyer U.S.S. Eldridge pulled into the Delaware Bay area for a United States Naval experiment that involved the task of making the ship invisible. The project's official name is Project Rainbow, but was nicknamed and more commonly known as the Philadelphia Experiment. Much has been written and speculated about the legendary experiment into invisibilty, but sorting fact from fiction is a near impossible task, especially with the recent influx of misinformation and deliberate disinformation that has been spread by those connected to the U.S. Intelligence community and professional skeptics. There is much controversy over what exactly happened, but one thing is for sure. For some reason, soon after the test was completed, a massive blanket of secrecy and denial was placed over what happened in Delaware Bay. It is thought that a huge scientific breakthrough was made, and the ship was accurately transported over space and time, disappearing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and reappearing in Norfolk, Virginia. Whatever did happen is still not known, but different theories are discussed below: The "Official" Navy Record The Navy admits that the U.S.S. Eldridge took part in an experiment that involved wrapping wire around the hull of the destroyer in an attempt to cancel out the magnetic fields of the metal on the ship. This is known as degaussing. This would render the ship "invisible" to underwater magnetic mines that rely on proximity sensors to trigger the detonation. These sensors operate by detecting magnetic fields around ships. Without the magnetic field, the ship would be able to pass through regions mined with these sensors, invisible to enemy mines, but not to radar or vision. The Navy's report is very plausible, and doesn't mention any exotic results or circumstances. But could this just be a believable account to drop the interest by the general public, leaving only the true minority of investigators in doubt? Physical Invisibility Some scientists have developed the theory that the Navy was working on a way to make the ship invisible to vision. However, it didn't involve warping space time or any complex task of a similar nature. This theory suggests that the Eldridge was equipped with high frequency generators that would heat up the surrounding air to cause a mirage, making the vessel invisible. This phenomenon is naturally occurring, and there have been cases where entire islands have disappeared from view in the right weather conditions. The high frequency generator would heat up the surrounding air and the water (creating a green-colored fog that was said to have engulfed the ship), causing a mirage to form, concealing the ship from view. The generator would also account for the sickness (physical and mental) of the crew after the experiment. A high freqency generator can cause serious harm to a person's wellbeing, especially at close range. This is more plausible than the degaussing theory, and would also explain the crew's sick condition as a result of the test. The main problem with these theories though, is that it doesn't explain how the U.S.S. Eldridge was seen in Norfolk, Virginia by the civilian crew of the SS Andrew Furuseth, when the ship disappeared from view in Philadelphia in a space of only about fifteen minutes. There are also details such as crewmen being fused to the hull of the ship and some not even reappearing. Transported across space and time? The most interesting theory about the Philadelphia Experiment is that the destroyer did in fact disappear and was teleported across space and time. Supposedly, there was a great number of ingenious scientists (including Tesla and Einstein) that were taking part in the experiment. However, Nikola Tesla was supposed to dead at the time of the Naval experiment. The theory is that light has to be bent around the ship to make it invisible. To accomplish this, the Navy wrapped the ship's circumference in wire and passed a measured current through it. This caused a huge oscillating magnet to form a magnetic field around the ship, not only bending the light, but space and time as well. The physics of the experiment are reminiscent of Einstein's Unified Field Theory that once you bend light, you are also unwittingly bending space and time as well. The first time this experiment was undertaken, the ship didn't completely disappear, and an imprint of the hull could be seen sitting in the water. The second time, the ship totally disappeared in a green fog and was sighted in Norfolk, Virginia. A haunting fact is that when the ship reappeared, the crew were all in a state of disorientation. Some were mentally ill, while other crewmen didn't even return. There were also crewmen that returned embedded in the hull. Later accounts arose about the crewmen, including a former crew member who was involved in a bar fight, and all the participants froze in time, as reported by a local newspaper! There were also accounts of people who were on the ship, spontaneously combusting. The mystery remains It is still not known what happened that day in 1943, mainly due to the lack of witnesses coming forth who served aboard the Eldridge. There is also no documentation available to the public which details Project Rainbow. It may have simply been a degaussing experiment. But how did the destroyer appear seconds later in Virginia? Its possible the answer will never be known, but the mystery may be solved when scientists rediscover what happened in Delaware Bay.

Thank you for this truthful documented evidence. Even though much of the information has been filed away or hidden from public view or research.
One has to wonder about other info we can't get the data on concerning UFOs and such.
Truthfully, after reading a fictional book... (is it OK to name the title) A Knight In Shining Armour... I found myself fascinated with Stonehenge and time travel possibilities. Then, I met a man who was in the Military and he told me a bit about this... and I want to know the truth. Period!

It si well documented, but I remain skeptical. Why would the Navy test such a top secret system and do it in such a public place? From a military standpoint it may not have been as important as the Manhattan project, but ill be they still would want a tight lid on things. There were plenty of quiet off the beaten path plaace to do thier tests, why in hte middle of a harbor?

Yeah, thanks for this.

This is a really fascinating subject. renewed intrest in it is important.

If they had succeeded in this experiemnt to bend space and time, they might be alot further along than we realize in other projects as well.

while imo the philadelphia experiment is a possiblility, art beilek who claims to participated in it, seems to be a nut-case:

here is a site that summarizes what is wrong with his stories:
www.bielek-debunked.com...

also w/ regards to why would they conduct such an experiment in a public place? its possible they stubmled upon the effect when rigging the ship with degaussing equipment--- it might not have been planned.


if you want more reading on a pretty far out topic, try searching around on Montauk

I am only 14 and i am sure that you've heard this before fom your earlier posts but i believe in theoretical time and space travel.

I wish to draw your attention to the health problems of the crew of the eldridge, the official reports were that the ship came back with a green mist causing the crew to become nausiated also some of the crew were reported to have never come back.

It is my belief that the amount of potential and EM energy that was used to supposedly get the ship invisible could have been enough to drain the natural EM field in the human body hence causing defficiencies in the bodies mental capacities causing the brain to act erradicaly and causing the depletion of neurons also causing fragmented memory and a host of medical problems caused the adverse affects to the brain e.g. schitzophrenia also brain death.

experimental travel - this is not very new to me as many new theories are being created every month however the concept of time and faster than light travel is a concept that has been plaguing man since the dawn of time.

if you count the amount of strange dissapearances and sightings that have happened in the last few centuries the amount is phenomenal and as we know all thinks weird and wonderful can be explained by the government however who can explain a plane that has been gone for over 50years that vanished without even a bit of damaged hull or even a radio signal to trace suddenly reappearing over the atlantic with the paint still as fresh as the day that it was taken off the production line full of dents from gun fire years before well atleast in our reality anyway but ofcourse all o0f the information points to outer dimentional travel this could very well explain the mental state of all who re-appear with the dimentional tensions playing havoc with the brain.

Could you please provide more information regarding this incident?...by the way, last time I checked gunfire left holes in aircraft, not dents??

A few years back on CNN, a couple of college guys demostrated a small device modelled on the events of the Philadelphia experiment. They built it based on all the information found in all the folk-lore surrounding the Philadelphia experiment. And it actually worked, the object in the center faded from view. The news person doing the interview asked what would happen if they put their hand in the field, and the guys said it would be very, very bad. But after that, all mention of the story disappeared. This was televised and treated more like a novelty than anything serious. It was on one of those science and technology week segments they sometimes run. It was sitting on a small table. When you think about, 1) no one knew what they were doing (government) and 2) even if they did, they probably didn't think it would work and someone would actually show the thing off on television.

But aside from all that, if such a device were bending time and space and whatnot and was dangerous to step into, then the most logical use would be to use it as a temporal receiver. Consider this, use it to receive TV, radio, and internet broadcasts from the future or past. If a man can sort of make it through the field, then why not simplify its use and use it to import signals. It would be a huge edge to know the future if even for a day or a year.

I saw a documentary on the History Channel about this not too long ago, and it struck me as full of supposition and heresay. I am not claiming that this story is fake, but this is the first official thing I've ever seen on this incident, and has once again piqued my interest, but I am far from believing it as fact.

Here is some information I found pertaining to this story:

www.history.navy.mil...




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.


www.sydweedon.com...

This page is the correspondence between a man named George Pantoulas and another man named Joshua (no last name given). George continualy backs up the claim that the ship is now in Greece and under the name Leon or Lion.

My search of CNN.com turned up many more articles claiming the same thing (search parameters: searchCNN.com for U.S.S. Eldridge). However, one especially caught my eye.

www.ufomind.com...

This page is apparently a bunch of interviews with actual crewmembers of the Eldridge, and their responses.

I wasn't looking to debunk, this was just the information I found when trying to search CNN for the story that Capt Proton mentioned.

Considering that after 50 years not one piece of verifiable evidence has ever come to ight I personally view this as another urban legend like the alligators in the New York sewers.

i've been unimpressed by what i've read on montauk. decided to get to the source and sent some foia requests on camp hero (for whatever good that will do). i've been to that place and it's eerie. will let the thread know how they turn out.

i was interested in this subject until quite recently. I found out that the main man whom is purported to have witnessed the USS Eldtridge disappear (Carlos Allende AKA Carl Allen)was nothing more than a spinner of lies, as told by his own father. His father described him as a master leg puller. I`ll try and find the link as theres lots of convincing arguments against the P.E....the article i am talking about was published in a magazine and later on the web

Somebody set me straight if I'm off, but I understand that they were turning this ship into the core of an electromagnet so powerful that it bent space and time. Wouldn't this require a SUBSTANTIAL electric current to be generated around the ship, and therefore make it necessary to be near a major source of power (like a major city?)

While a skeptic, I must state the following:

We need to know who the "players" were in devising the Philadelphia Experiment. William L. Moore, along with UFOlogist and linguist Charles Berlitz, authored the popular paperback, "The Philadelphia Experiment." Moore has since said the book was not factual. I'm sure Berlitz would say otherwise.

But the key players were not fictitious:

R.H. Kent (obituary in Physics Today, July, 1961, p.68)
Mr. F. Reno was acknowledged in a paper by Kent.
R.W. Ladenburg (obituary in Physics Today, May, 1952, p.37)
R.F. Rinehart (b. 1907; Ph.D. 1934; published several engineering papers)

Anyone who has read the book also knows that Albert Einstein is mentioned as having had his unified field theory demonstated on the U.S.S. Eldrige, the ship in the experiment.

With the exception of Ladenburg, the scientists above are all listed in the index of the book. Ladenburg is mentioned on pp182-185,193. My source
for the information provided here is from another book: Tesla's Egg of Columbus, Radar Stealth, The Torsion Tensor, And The Philadelphia Experiment, (one volume), 1994, Corum, Corum, and Daum, Appendix III.

CAPT PROTON.

Hi, do you have any links about this story or are you aware of any documentation?

I would be very interested to look at that.

Thanks

I heard the Eldridge was turned over to Greece in the 50's and renamed the Leon. Men who have served on the ship say they get a weird feeling. I will try to find a link and get more info.

okaaaay, found the link www.softwareartist.biz...

Also got some more info: 2 airmen were taking a walk in Colarado springs when they were approached by a stranger who told them the story of the Philadelphia experiment and that he was a crewmember on the Eldridge, but this may not be true as the Navy would probably sent the remaining crewmembers to an asylum or something. Will update when possible in the meantime you should check out the link and my murder/suicide of dr.jessup thread in military and government projects.

Two problems I have with this story. First, if it was simply wrapping the ship in a magnetic field that caused the alleged effects, that is something that can easily be duplicated on a small scale today and I am sure someone would have tried it. Second, the people being fused into the ship. This I really doubt, if such a thing could happen I would think the person would die instantly because the fusing would cut off blood and oxygen to the brain, to the heart, the lungs and the rest of the body. It looks good on tv but I doubt it could have really happened. As far as this experiment driving people crazy, that I could see being true. Third, the ship reappearing somewhere else, depending on the true intentions of this experiment (which we will never know) there could have been two identical ships, easy to do.
