1988: The Philadelphia Experiment

by Al Bielek Editor’s Note: Although we try to find interesting new stories for our readers, occasionally we come across a story that merits a re-printing or retelling. This article by Al Bielek is one of the most definitive works written concerning the Philadelphia Experiment. Hope you enjoy and I hope Mr. Bielek isn’t upset. The Philadelphia Experiment (U.S. Government designation “Project Rainbow“) had its origin in a feasibility study started in the early 1930’s at the University of Chicago (1931) and later moved to Princeton’s Institute of Advanced Studies. Involved in the Program at various times were renowned scientists that included Dr. Albert Einstein, Dr. John von Neumann, Dr. Nikola Tesla, and others. Originally a theoretical study in methods to produce an “invisibility screen”, the first fully successful test in 1940 converted the program to a military project: “Project Rainbow“. As a military (Navy) program, a volunteer crew […] Read More

2010: THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT: What They Didn’t Want You To Know

by Joe Turner One of the A & E Channel’s investigative TV programs has now found the tables turned on it in the most ironic fashion. “The Unexplained,” a Sightings/Unsolved Mysteries” knock-off that deals with the paranormal and mysterious, has been the focus of an investigation led by one of its past experts. The findings of this investigation, conducted by a real life “Fox Mulder,” firmly place “The Unexplained’s” episode, “Strange Disappearances” in the same context as the Hitler Diaries and CNN’s recent news debacle on nerve gassing Viet Nam deserters. Like the CNN Viet Nam story, the episode dealt with a military operation. A test in W.W.II that would have been the latest development in a long history of military camouflage. Total optical and radar invisibility. The Philadelphia Experiment. “…men caught fire, went mad, and – the most bizarre of all, some were embedded halfway into the deck […] Read More

1996: The Current Whereabouts of the USS Eldridge

The Ship Tested in the Philadelphia Experiment ( reported by George Pantoulas ) The more I have correspondence with our new friend George, the more I begin to see that we have found the “Indiana Jones” of Greece. Once again, George surprises me by saying the ship used in the 1943 Invisibility Test, out of the Philadelphia Harbor, known to us as the Philadelphia Experiment is a ship now part of the Greek Navy, known as the “Leon”. So please find attached to this page, George’s account of the Eldridge in Greece including an interview with two Naval Officers that served on this ship.

2003: The Sands Of Time

Alone, I walk the sands of time, The graying clouds, my thoughts of despair and loneliness. I seek shelter from this storm within myself. Delving deep, retreating from the darkness of pain and suffering. But the whipping winds of fear still build momentum. Michelle A. Guerin I wrote that poem sometime in the late 1970s. For many years, it’s meaning had haunted me. It haunts me no more. *********************************************** On the southeasternmost tip of Long Island, lies the idyllic fishing hamlet of Montauk, NY. Quiet and sparsely inhabited during the cold, wind-strifed months of winter, the town’s population swells each summer with the onslaught of tourists, fishermen and those fortunate to have season residence in this quaint seaside village. Many “day” visitors flock to see the historic landmark, the Montauk Lighthouse, commissioned by the “Father of Our Country”, George Washington. But there is a darker side of Montauk Point […] Read More

2013: Philadelphia Experiment: Montauk Experiment

I first heard about the Philadelphia and Montauk Experiments in 1991 when I hosted the television talk show “The Metaphysical Experience” in New York City. A friend had told me about Preston Nichols, Duncan Cameron and Al Bielek, all of whom claimed to have been involved in both experiments which according to them actually link. The Philadelphia Experiment was a time travel experiment that took place in Philadelphia Harbor in August of 1943. It was also an invisibility experiment. The goal of the US government was to make the navy ships invisible to defeat the German navy. Allegedly the Philadelphia experiment was our government’s first attempt at stealth technology, making a ship invisible to radar. The navy ship, US Eldridge purported became invisible for a period of time. The ship became invisible but the personnel couldn’t take the effects. When it materialized again, several hours later the bodies of […] Read More
