The alleged Philadelphia experiment took place on August 12, 1943 aboard a US navy warship, the USS Eldridge. It is noteworthy that this was not the original name of the operation, since in official documents it was called Projeto Arco Íris.
a war myth
In a context of war such as the one experienced by the United States during these years, the appearance of rumors, lies or myths is always more recurrent than usual. It is in this scenario that we frame the episode of the Philadelphia Experiment.
According to history, the US army was looking for a technology that would allow it to make its ships invisible. In those years, the American navy was surpassed by innovative German technology in relation to submarines. In this sense, German submarines were virtually undetectable and consequently wreaked havoc on enemy destroyers. Faced with this situation, the US Navy decided to summon the best scientists of the time in order to neutralize the Nazis’ technology. Philadelphia experiment
The unified field theory developed by physicist Albert Einstein combined the force of gravity with other electromagnetic forces; this theoretical approach constituted the core of the Philadelphia Experiment.
So, in 1943, the destroyer USS Eldridge put in place a new technology and according to some reports, a large halo of light completely covered the ship, leaving it invisible and finally teleported 800 meters away.
Those who believe in the veracity of this story not only support the invisibility of the warship and its consequent teleportation, but also claim that some crew members merged with objects and parts of the ship’s structure . Those who maintain this type of version say the episode changed their lives. Philadelphia experiment
the other side of the myth
Skeptics teach us the other side of the coin. They believe that the proponents of this story have never had conclusive evidence to demonstrate its authenticity. In this sense, the testimonies of some crew members belie the invisibility and teleportation version of the ship.
According to most investigations, the rumor mill was an individual named Carl Allen, who claimed to witness the strange phenomenon while on a ship near the USS Aldridge. Philadelphia experiment
