The Philadelphia Experiment

  1. 1. THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT By: Cantin Gillen
  2. 2. German U-boats In WWII  German U-boats were able to maneuver around battle ships and destroy American convoy ships.  U-boats were smaller and therefore had a smaller turning area, compared to our battle ships.
  3. 3. U.S. Response to U-boats Destroyer Escort  Did what its name implies - -escorted the destroyers  An anti-submarine vessel  A mini destroyer, very similar, except not as fast, but more maneuverable.  Ex: the USS Elderage
  4. 4. Ultimate Defense Against Subs U-boats Destroyer escorts  These enemy subs were  Some believe that the US not limited to military had a plan to maneuverability. create a ship that was  They were able to undetectable by enemy approach a convey without radar. detection, from the deep.  The destroyer escorts were perfect candidates.
  5. 5. Albert Einstein Experiment Einstein  A test of Unified Field  Published his theory in Theory of Gravitation and Germany around 1927 but Electricity. it was rendered incomplete.
  6. 6. Actual experiment USS Eldridge (escort destroyer)  Wrapped in steal cable  High voltage energy ran through cables that was produced by large generators .  This altered magnetic fields.
  7. 7. First experiment  July 22, 1942 at 0900 the large generators of the USS Elderage were switched on.  This was done in plain view of other merchant ships that were in the Philadelphia naval yard.  A green haze or fog formed around the ship as the fields built up.  Then it was claimed that the green fog disappeared, taking the ship with it.  Complete success- not only was it invisible to radar but it was also invisible to the eye.  Returned to natural state after 15 mins.
  8. 8. First Experiment (Continued)  Although the Navy succeeded in masking the ship from radar they also made it invisible.  The equipment on the ship had been altered.  And this cause the ships crew to become very sick and disoriented.
  9. 9. Final Experiment  October, 28, 1943 at 17:15 in the Philadelphia Naval Yard  The generators were switched on and almost completely disappeared.  But this time reappeared a few minutes later in Norfolk, Virginia and was seen for several minutes then vanished and returned to Philadelphia ( teleportation )
  10. 10. Gone wrong  With the return of the  http://www.youtube.com ship came many /watch?v=ChjyCR8V2Bg problems &NR=1  Most of the crew was  -watch 7:00 to end violently sick  Some were missing and never found  The craziest thing of all was that some of the men were fused to the steel of the ship, embedded in the bulkheads
  11. 11. Government response  The navy did not report this issue  Crew members receive neural damage from the intense magnetic fields, this killed many and drove other insane  The government tried to keep this experiment a secret by brain washing those who survived  Also altering the ships logs to show that it was never in Philadelphia, this closed the experiment
