Nikola Tesla has recently been the topic of controversy due to the claims of Al Bielek and Preston Nichols. They have reported in some books and articles that Tesla was involved in one of the biggest mysteries of World War II which was known as The Philadelphia Experiment.
The Philadelphia Experiment, otherwise known as Project Rainbow, was basically an attempt by the Navy to find a ship that could not be detected by magnetic mines and or radar. On the contrary, the results were way far behind what was expected by the navy.
In the early 1930’s, the University of Chicago ran an investigation about the possibility of invisibility using electricity. This project was later moved to Princeton’s Institute of Advanced Studies where it was named Project Rainbow (project invisibility), and was founded in 1936.
Nikola Tesla was the Director of the project. Tesla was given anything that was required by him for the testing of the project. Tesla needed and received a navy battle ship on which the experiments were to be tested. The first test of invisibility occurred in 1940 and was slated as a full success when a navy ship that had no crew totally vanished.
The main design, had two large Tesla coils (electromagnets) placed on each hull of the ship. The coils are turned on in a special sequence and their magnetic force is so powerful that they warp gravity itself.
Based in part on Tesla’s earlier electrogravitic experiments, Project Rainbow proved to be far more dangerous than was originally conceived.
Al Bielek claims that Tesla began to have doubts about the safety of the experiment due to his communications with extraterrestrials.
“Tesla had a press announcement in 1923 where he stated he was communicating with ET’s off planet. Now after he retired from RCA he maintained a laboratory in his living quarters at the Hotel New Yorker. What is not known to most people he had a second laboratory which seemingly was his main one located on top of the Waldorf Astoria on the top floor and both penthouse towers.
“He kept a transmitter setup on the Waldorf; and his receiving setup, his receiving antennas and receivers which had been built by RCA under his direction, were on the New Yorker. And I know two people who said they were working with Tesla, during that period, that he was using that equipment, he was talking with somebody, virtually every day, and one of them was emphatic: it was someone off planet. In plain language, he was communicating with ET’s.”
Tesla mentioned that there would be a great issue with personnel if anyone were to enter the ship while the gauss coils were turned on and the Electro Magnetic radiation would damage them within this reality. He said in numerous occasions that he was in contact with extraterrestrials and that the ET’s had confirmed that there would be a problem with the experiment.
Tesla wanted to clarify the problem before any farther experiments would begin. However, the Navy said no, they were fighting a war and wanted immediate results. On the second experiment, Tesla, fearing that there would be people hurt or killed in the experiment, decided to sabotage the 1942 test. He de-tuned the equipment so nothing would work and the test failed.
Tesla resigned in March 1942 and left the project.
In July 1943, the destroyer U.S.S. Eldridge pulled into the Delaware Bay area for a United States Naval experiment that involved the task of making the ship invisible using Tesla technology.
The project’s official name was Project Rainbow, but is more commonly known as the Philadelphia Experiment.
