Teleportation Physics Study
by Eric Davis
August 2004
Air Force Research Lab
Edwards AFB

A friend of mine gave it to me on cd. It is a .pdf file of over 1meg. It is not
for the beginning physics student. But anyone can read between the lines
and still get excited!

Perhaps a search on Google will turn up a site that has the file?


The Teleportation Physics Study is quite easy to Google.

1.1 Introduction
The concept of teleportation was originally developed during the Golden Age of 20th century science fiction literature by writers in need of a form of instantaneous disembodied transportation technology to support the plots of their stories. Teleportation has appeared in such SciFi literature classics as Algis Budry’s Rogue Moon (Gold Medal Books, 1960), A. E. van Vogt’s World of Null-A (Astounding Science Fiction, August 1945), and George Langelaan’s The Fly (Playboy Magazine, June 1957). The Playboy Magazine short story led to a cottage industry of popular films decrying the horrors of scientific technology that exceeded mankind’s wisdom: The Fly (1958), Return of the Fly (1959), Curse of the Fly (1965), The Fly (a 1986 remake), and The Fly II (1989). The teleportation concept has also appeared in episodes of popular television SciFi anthology series such as The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. But the most widely recognized pop-culture awareness of the teleportation concept began with the numerous Star Trek television and theatrical movie series of the past 39 years (beginning in 1964 with the first TV series pilot episode, The Cage), which are now an international entertainment and product franchise that was originally spawned by the late genius television writer-producer Gene Roddenberry.

Comment: You must avoid teleporting with little critters mixing with your source and end points in the teleport. This is highly advisable. A recommended strong bug zapper and fly paper in the laboratory offers greater odds from becoming "The Fly III." Have some large fly paper available to catch yourself on the other side as necessary.

Star Trek took the science fiction outlook to new levels by introducing to an otherwise brain dead public some big words such as "Heisenberg compensators." A new generation of physicists surely is arriving from younsters who looked this up. Of course people advocating a return to being brain dead usually mock others who watch Star Trek, saying "get a life." Hey just join the Air Force Team even as a civilian researcher so you can write such papers as above. Now that's living.

Make sure you have at least Adobe Reader installed to download and read the file of course.

The Tesla egg was able to levitate using a copper egg/electric coil configuration - this was witnessed by several hundreds at the World's Fair. The natural progression of this "anti-gravity" experiment would be to also include manipulation of magnetic forces which would lead to light and space/time effects. The progress made since Tesla and Einstein's original thoughts can only be dreamed about by most of us. I am sure the government has tried to use this science since then for whatever purposes they deem important.

I had a question with regard to the ships construction and the manner in which it was wrapped with "degaussing coils." If this ship in saltwater had a "rod" of some type running the length of the ship,generators at either end - is this ship now very much like a battery? Is it possible the entire bay and ship together acted like a large powerful battery in addition to the magnetic properties imparted the ship by the experimental design? Could this have lead to a more powerful shifting of electrons than the study models had predicted - causing the actual atomic structure of the shift to spread or soften(manipulation of the quantum foam). This may be why sailors "melded" with the ship?

Teleportation with control is the key - was the ship sent like a TV signal to a "receiver" in VA - maybe...

SkipShipman quoted part of the introduction to the teleportation paper I mentioned. As many are aware there is an introduction, body and conclusion to most papers. Any interested party should download the entire paper.

As for scientists illustrating their concepts with science fiction both M. Kaku and Kip Thorne have done so.

If a DC bias is applied to a solenoid that contains ferromagnetic matter inside it, the material becomes magnetized. Initially, in the process of magnetization, the electrons (also called spins or magnetic moments) precess in a decaying orbit about the longitudinal (z-axis) of the material. The designation spin is another way of saying angular momentum.

If the DC bias varies in magnitude then the precession decays and expands maintaining a roughly average orbit about the z-axis. The average orbit of the magnetization vector describes a cone (the precession cone).

The nucleus is not involved in the resonance. For iron, two electrons per atom are mobilized. With the enormous number of atoms in a sample the magnetic field can be large. In the case of iron, the saturation magnetization, Bs, is about 2 Tesla. No higher field can be obtained in or around the

The precession frequency for a 1 Tesla field is in the billions of radians per second. This is the most significant aspect of ferromagnetic resonance. However, friction generated in the resonance process prevents the resonance from reaching an infinite value.

The solenoid and core could be the seed from which a wormhole grows. --See Adams, Above Top Secret, The Philadelphia Project.

One goal of creating a wormhole is to shorten the distance between two locations. The quantities below indicate how the distance would shrink. Since the 3 dimensional distance between two locations remains constant, it is the 4 dimensional distance that can be manipulated.

4d dist = sqrt((ct)^2 - x^2) [1]

where c is the speed of light, t is time, and x is the 3d dist.

The equation above has been called the 4d dist by Gamow, the space-time interval by Minkowski, the distance through a wormhole (Adams) and the teleportation equation (Adams, Above Top Secret, op. cit.)

To make practical use of the equation above, it must be transformed.

4d dist = sqrt(c^2 ((Tf)^2 - (To)^2)) [2]

Moore estimates that the disappearance of the ship took a few seconds. To =3. If the actual time, Tf, was also 3 seconds, then the 4d dist goes to zero and the origination and destination become instantly connected.

The intermediate steps transforming [1] to [2] are not difficult. They are left as an exercise for the interested reader.

When I was in high school I remember seeing a black and white film that showed Einstein doing an experiment for the military with a little boat on a stand and in the film he made the boat disappear and then reappear. I was under the impression that it was this experiment that led to the military doing a full sized boat with only animals on it...this led to the same things animals fuzed in to metal of the boat..some animals dead, some gone and some that seemed normal. It was after this experiment that they tried it on the Eldridge. Has anyone else seen this black and white film of Einstien? Has anyone else heard of the previous experiment? It was back in the late 70's that I had seen the film and then researched the Eldridge thing...this is the "information age" but to tell you the truth pre-internet late 70's there was a lot more information out there if you just went looking.

They weren't trying to do what they evidently accomplished. My own 20 year research on this event leads me to believe that they stumbled across some physical aspect of the hardware (juxtapositioning, respective angles, ac frequencies, etc.) that they had no idea of that led to the aforementioned results. Unlike the Manhattan Project, where they had a good idea of what to expect.

Just came across this site as I was reading in an article in a technology magazine and how engineers and scientists are devising ways of making things 'invisible'. I'm an engineer myself. The story about project rainbow is very interesting and I would suspect has fuelled the minds of today of making it into a reality. But here's my two cents - You got to ask yourself about alot of these conspiracy theories. Many of them appear at times when people are afraid. Afraid of attack from a foreign country or something similar. It is my belief that the US government or navy were indeed trying to develop a way to make their ships invisible to the technology that was present in the day, i.e. radar and sonar. The suggestion that deguassing would make the ship invisible is valid, most simple explantion and is more than likely correct. But had word got out that this is what they were trying to achieve, the technology or counter-countermeasure to sonar would become void pretty quick. Agreed? So what better than to create a story that was on people's minds back then, as seen in comics, the art of invisibility. Not only would the concept seem unimaginable at the time, it has the effect of creating hope in the lives of the nation while create a state of hopelessness in the lives of the presumed enemy. At times of war, each country asks themselves "Can we win?" "Are we superior to them?" If the answer is no, then the war may never take place. If you get your own people to believe their country is superior, other people will also begin to have that mindset. The beauty of it - You get to invent or create a technology and people will automatically think it's something far superior. Look at stealth vs. UFOs as another example. Going back to the experiment, I would say the crew members would probably either not known what the experiment was in aid of or given a false story by their superiors. Someone made a comment about the ship being in a harbour and the justification was that it draws massive amounts of energy so needed to be near a city. This is ridiculous. What use would a cloaking ship be if it had to pull up to a city before cloaking??!!! It would be blown out of the water long before that. I know it's hard to swallow things that you really want to believe in, but here's another way of thinking of it. People want to believe that we are far more advanced than we are. This is not a bad thing as I've pointed out earlier, it gives us hope. The important thing is for us to take our dreams and make them a reality. Our world today is built on our dreams and our ancestors dreams. Nothing is impossible if we put our minds to it. So the philidelphia project wasn't real, big deal, but look at the way it's got alot of people thinking, as I've said before, people began and still do dream of the possibility of this technology and are now working towards making them a reality.

My late mother ran a carpool out of the Philadelphia Navy Yard in 1943.
One afternoon, one of her passengers, a recent Annapolis grad, came unglued in the back seat and blurted out a story of an invisible ship tied up to a dock. He was taking a shortcut, with a valise of paperwork, and stumbled upon a big hole in the water. He could count the rivet heads protruding into the muddy Delaware River, and even the solid pieces around the rudder post and driving shafts for the props, were likewise invisible. The Eldridge was a cannon class DDE, and would have had a welded hull. Considering the desperation on the East Coast, this riveted hull, must have been almost a derelict. We tried Q ships with no luck at all against U-Boats, and some went out, and were never heard from again.
Naval officers on the Eldridge during construction, and who served on her at sea, said that there was never a cloaking experiment, aboard her.
At the same time, a mystery A-Bomb was accidently detonated about 30 miles due East of Cape May, NJ.. This is only mentioned in the Nostradamic Centuries, in that "By the Harbor, and in two Cities, would be seen a scourge, never before seen by men." With 20-20 hindsight, the Harbor is that of the Delaware Estuary, and it went off about 4:30PM local time, on a Friday afternoon, in Jan. 1943, with enough force to stop all the clocks for miles up the Jersey Coast.
Just imagine the frantic cover up to protect the Manhattan Project's absolute secrecy, from the Nazis. Just how would they cover up the terrible Radiation burns, of any Navy personnel exposed to the blast, on nearby ships??

Ok we all know that the US goverment hides the facts from it's own countrymen, how patriotic. What could not have stopped them from building two ships of the same name as they knew by then they needed a test subject if i could call it that.

Hi everyone I see this topic has been around for years, with some very amazing theories and experimental topics, now I am new to studying this stuff but I have believed for along time for alot of this type of experiments to be true and to have succeded.

I am currently trying an experiment of my own, well I am very much still in the working out stages, I wanna make sure I have it all worked out before I try it so as I dont cause injury to myself.

But basically what I wanna try is to get a ball of magnets and get them to hold something metal between them in a sort of levitational position (I don't want the object touching any magnet) then i wanna get the magnets spinning at high speed.

I wanna be able to have the object stay still while the magnets and moving. I want a second exact copy of the magnets doing the same thing but with no object in it. Then I wanna add charge to the magnets 1 taking positive charge and the other to have a negative charge both with a common earth, and see what happens.

Now im quite sure this has been done before and im just as sure nothing special will happen, but hey I think it would be fun and rather enlightening if I can actually get it to work.

Now thats the end of my ramblings for now.

I will join ATS soon so I can be a registered poster, I enjoyed and learnt lots from reading this topic, I hope to learn a lot more.

Sorry for this being slightly off topic but hey I hope we are all open minded here!

Allegedly, in the fall of 1943 a U.S. Navy destroyer was made invisible and teleported from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Norfolk, Virginia, in an incident known as the Philadelphia Experiment. Records in the Operational Archives Branch of the Naval Historical Center have been repeatedly searched, but no documents have been located which confirm the event, or any interest by the Navy in attempting such an achievement.

The ship involved in the experiment was supposedly the USS Eldridge. Operational Archives has reviewed the deck log and war diary from Eldridge's commissioning on 27 August 1943 at the New York Navy Yard through December 1943. The following description of Eldridge's activities are summarized from the ship's war diary. After commissioning, Eldridge remained in New York and in the Long Island Sound until 16 September when it sailed to Bermuda. From 18 September, the ship was in the vicinity of Bermuda undergoing training and sea trials until 15 October when Eldridge left in a convoy for New York where the convoy entered on 18 October. Eldridge remained in New York harbor until 1 November when it was part of the escort for Convoy UGS-23 (New York Section). On 2 November the convoy entered Naval Operating Base, Norfolk. On 3 November, Eldridge and Convoy UGS-23 left for Casablanca where it arrived on 22 November. On 29 November, Eldridge left as one of escorts for Convoy GUS-22 and arrived with the convoy on 17 December at New York harbor. Eldridge remained in New York on availability training and in Block Island Sound until 31 December when it steamed to Norfolk with four other ships. During this time frame, Eldridge was never in Philadelphia.

Eldridge's complete World War II action report and war diary coverage, including the remarks section of the 1943 deck log, is available on microfilm, NRS-1978-26. The cost of a duplicate film is indicated on the fee schedule. To order a duplicate film, please complete the duplication order form and send a check or money order for the correct amount as indicated on the NHC fee schedule, made payable to the Department of the Navy, to the Operational Archives, at the above address.

Supposedly, the crew of the civilian merchant ship SS Andrew Furuseth observed the arrival via teleportation of the Eldridge into the Norfolk area. Andrew Furuseth's movement report cards are in the Tenth Fleet records in the custody of the Modern Military Branch, National Archives and Records Admnistration, (8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001), which also has custody of the action reports, war diaries and deck logs of all World War II Navy ships, including Eldridge. The movement report cards list the merchant ship's ports of call, the dates of the visit, and convoy designation, if any. The movement report card shows that Andrew Furuseth left Norfolk with Convoy UGS-15 on 16 August 1943 and arrived at Casablanca on 2 September. The ship left Casablanca on 19 September and arrived off Cape Henry on 4 October. Andrew Furuseth left Norfolk with Convoy UGS-22 on 25 October and arrived at Oran on 12 November. The ship remained in the Mediterranean until it returned with Convoy GUS-25 to Hampton Roads on 17 January 1944. The Archives has a letter from Lieutenant Junior Grade William S. Dodge, USNR, (Ret.), the Master of Andrew Furuseth in 1943, categorically denying that he or his crew observed any unusual event while in Norfolk. Eldridge and Andrew Furuseth were not even in Norfolk at the same time.

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) has stated that the use of force fields to make a ship and her crew invisible does not conform to known physical laws. ONR also claims that Dr. Albert Einstein's Unified Field Theory was never completed. During 1943-1944, Einstein was a part-time consultant with the Navy's Bureau of Ordnance, undertaking theoretical research on explosives and explosions. There is no indication that Einstein was involved in research relevant to invisibility or to teleportation. ONR's information sheet on the Philadelphia Experiment is attached.

The Philadelphia Experiment has also been called "Project Rainbow." A comprehensive search of the Archives has failed to identify records of a Project Rainbow relating to teleportation or making a ship disappear. In the 1940s, the code name RAINBOW was used to refer to the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis. The RAINBOW plans were the war plans to defeat Italy, Germany and Japan. RAINBOW V, the plan in effect on 7 December 1941 when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, was the plan the U.S. used to fight the Axis powers.

Some researchers have erroneously concluded that degaussing has a connection with making an object invisible. Degaussing is a process in which a system of electrical cables are installed around the circumference of ship's hull, running from bow to stern on both sides. A measured electrical current is passed through these cables to cancel out the ship's magnetic field. Degaussing equipment was installed in the hull of Navy ships and could be turned on whenever the ship was in waters that might contain magnetic mines, usually shallow waters in combat areas. It could be said that degaussing, correctly done, makes a ship "invisible" to the sensors of magnetic mines, but the ship remains visible to the human eye, radar, and underwater listening devices.

After many years of searching, the staff of the Operational Archives and independent researchers have not located any official documents that support the assertion that an invisibility or teleportation experiment involving a Navy ship occurred at Philadelphia or any other location.

The lion destryoer of the greek navy is not the uss eldridge but a test ship used to cover the disappearance of the original eldridge(now in a us military depot, well whats left of it's twisted mess) Ths fact can be varified by viewing the photographic evidence of the two ships paying close attention to the top decks.

Perhaps because they were indeed attempting to degausse the ship and had no idea what was going to actually happen. They know now, and so should we.
