Project Rainbow was the biggest cover-up ever
perpetrated on the American public and was
rated as beyond Top Secret. The Philadelphia
Experiment turned out to be so horrible that it’s
not surprising the Government wanted it erased
from American history.

In June of 1943 the Second World War was still raging across the planet. Over 1,000 US naval ships had been lost by German U-Boat attacks. The US navy was desperate to find a solution to this problem. They asked Albert Einstein to help them out with a way to make the US battleships not only invisible, but also make them able to be teleported to a different location.

The newly created destroyer, the USS Eldridge was the ship that was used for the experiment. Using Einstein’s “Unified Field Theory” the government attempted to cloak the ship while it was docked in the Philadelphia harbor in July of 1943. The theory was that, using powerful electromagnetic generators, light could be “bent” around the ship and therefore render it invisible. Witnesses from crew members aboard other ships in the harbor at the time reported that they saw a green fog generated by the generators aboard the Eldridge surround the destroyer. When the fog dissipated, the ship was gone.

A second attempt was made on October 28, 1943. During this test not only did the Eldridge disappear from the Philadelphia harbor, but it appeared several minutes later near Norfolk, Virginia. It was there for a few minutes, and then reappeared back in Philadelphia. However, when it did there were some horrible side effects of the trip. The men aboard the ship experienced being disoriented and were violently nauseous. Some of the men disappeared and several of them spontaneously reappeared years later-the others were never seen again. Many men went insane and were sent to a mental hospital and their parents were told that their sons were missing in action. There were five sailors that were integrated into the metal of the ship’s haul when it returned. They lived for a short time before dying. The sailors who were relatively okay after the experience were brainwashed not to remember what had

The Navy stopped the testing and sealed all the records of the events.

      Who would have thought....makes me so very sad to know this happened. So many things have happened and covered up. Truth is out--what will we do with this information today?--Deb

      Thanks, Lizzy~ This is horrible and just the tip of the iceberg of what the government has done to it's armed service men. Agent Orange is one... and unknown drug testing... and the list goes on . . .

      This was indeed horrible...and it's no wonder there was such a huge attempt at a cover-up. Luckily, it ultimately failed, and the truth leaked out.

      Hubby's dad died of leukemia (years later), after being exposed on board ship (on purpose, as "observers") during the nuclear bomb testing out in the Pacific atolls....that's just one more example; I know there are many more. It sickens and disgusts me.

      However, voted your article up, interesting and shared, because this needs to be known.
