One of our newest readers inspired me to post today’s video feature on Discovery Enterprise following her interest in last Sunday’s blog post concerning the History Channel’s documentary on Einstein. One comment of her’s really intrigued me concerning Einstein’s alleged involvement in the infamous Philadelphia Experiment.
The Philadelphia Experiment is the conspiracy theory regarding a naval military experiment conducted at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, conducted sometime around October 28, 1943, in which the U.S. Navy destroyer escort the USS Eldridge was to be rendered invisible or cloaked to human observers for a brief period of time. The Philadelphia Experiment is also referred to sometimes as Project Rainbow. Apparently something went amiss and ship and crew were allegedly teleported to another dimension with adverse effects to all those involved.
The rumors surrounding the fate of the USS Eldridge and her crew have persisted for nearly seventy years and has been the subjected of two major motion pictures. But, what is the true story behind the Philadelphia Experiment. Were Albert Einstein and some of the great scientific minds of wartime America engaged in the development of a new secret weapon? Did the Philadelphia Experiment unwittingly have unforeseen consequences that transported the crew of the USS Eldridge on an odyssey into the unknown and bizarre realm of trans-dimensional physics?
