The Philadelphia Experiment

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