The Philadelphia Experiment Story

The Philadelphia Experiment story is one of time travel, teleportation and deep-rooted conspiracy. Officially, it’s a footnote in US history, with the true story of events obscured by rumors spanning over the decades.

On the surface we appear to have a strange but plausible experiment that ended in disaster, and has likely been blown far out of proportion.

As the story goes, during the deep days of World War II a US Navy Destroyer allegedly vanished from the waters outside of Philadelphia, only to reappear instantaneously hundreds of miles away. It was an accident, an error in an experiment only intended to hide the ship from view, but the result was fantastic and terrifying.

Surely this is a case of exaggeration and myth gone wild. The technology to create such an event isn’t available today much less seventy years ago, if it is even possible at all. But as we dig deeper we see a picture of government cover-ups, other-worldly intervention and the arrogant misuse of powers we have yet to understand.

Eventually we are led to wonder if there could be more here than a tall tale. Is it possible the events of Philadelphia Experiment really happened?

Secret Projects and Government Cover-up

If the story is real, the implications are incredible. As regular citizens we surely realize there are top-secret government projects in the works all the time. Area 51 may or may not be a haven for UFOs, but surely it and facilities like it house incredible government projects that are not yet ready for the public eye. Some may never come to light.

To complicate the matter further, the Philadelphia Experiment is said to have deep roots in the Montauk Project, an alleged top-secret government program.

Is the Philadelphia Experiment tale a case where the government tried to cover up such a project, only to have the true story leak out?

The idea that the US Navy experimented with teleportation and perhaps even time travel back during World War II only leaves us guessing at the incredible science that has evolved in the time since. Over the years brilliant inventions from minds like Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla have been alleged to have links to the project, furthering the mystery.

If the events of the Philadelphia Experiment did happen, did the government or perhaps the nation’s top scientist shut the project down out of fear? Would the US government really refuse to capitalize on such powerful technology?

How do we know about any of this anyway?

Project Rainbow

The story began when a man named Morris Jessup went to his mailbox on January 13th, 1955, not likely expecting anything out of the ordinary. What he found would shock him. A letter from a man named Carlos Allende described a US Navy experiment that had gone horribly wrong, and had been kept secret for over a decade. Allende had written the letter after reading a book Jessup had authored, in which Jessup discussed Albert Einstein’s Unified Field Theory as a potential means of spacecraft propulsion.

Allende outlined an experiment called Project Rainbow, what would later be known as The Philadelphia Experiment. It was an exercise conducted in 1943 by the U.S. Navy using Einstein’s Unified Field Theory to cloak ships and hide them from view.

Here Allende made an outlandish claim. He said he had witnessed the destroyer U.S.S. Eldridge appear and again disappear while he was standing on the deck of a nearby ship.

If that’s not interesting enough, here’s what puts this tale over the top: The Eldridge had been moored in Philadelphia. Allende’s ship was in Norfolk, Virginia, 200 miles away. In other words: In an attempt to make the Eldridge invisible, the Navy had inadvertently teleported it from one harbor to another!

Allende went further to describe the lingering effects of the experiment on the crew of the Eldridge, which caused them to disappear and reappear without warning at later times.

Intrigued, Jessup encouraged correspondence with Allende, but soon began to question his honesty and discontinued the friendship. It may have ended there, if not for a strange copy of Jessup’s book that landed in the hands of the Office of Naval Research.

Someone had heavily annotated the book in different color pens. Whoever it was referenced the Philadelphia Experiment, and seemed to possess highly sophisticated scientific knowledge. Jessup could name one of the writers as Allende, but the identities of the other two remain a mystery.
