[ANTES DE COMEÇAR A MATÉRIA, FIQUE CIENTE QUE ELA ESTÁ RECHEADA DE SPOILERS]
If you haven’t watched Loki’s fifth episode, then don’t read this article to avoid spoilers.
Loki’s episode this Wednesday (7) took advantage of another bizarre real-life case to compose his story. This time, the solved conspiracy theory was the Philadelphia Experiment. In the series, the USS Eldridge DE-173 was seen as a ship that appears in the Void and is quickly attacked by Alioth, being defeated and merged within minutes of attempting to attack it.
However, in real life, the story is much more muddled and full of lags than what has been shown in the series, being treated as a major farce by the US press and authorities. That’s because, according to reports, it’s a big WWII era conspiracy story about a US Navy ship that was allegedly used in an experiment to test field theory. unit of German physicist Albert Einstein with the aim of making the battleship invisible to human eyes, not just radar.
Rumors say that in the summer of 1943, scientist Franklin Reno tried to prove in practice how the Unified Field Theory worked to make a military ship invisible and even teleport. The first test of the so-called “Rainbow Project” would have taken place on July 22, 1943, at the shipyard in Philadelphia, USA, where the navy wrapped the USS Eldridge with several electric cables coupled to two overpowered generators. . According to suspected reports, the generators created a powerful electromagnetic field that generated a green haze and left the ship invisible for a few minutes. When seen again, the crew reported nausea and migraines. With the apparent success of invisibility to the human eye, naval officers reportedly ordered a new test to focus only on radar invisibility, which would be very useful in wartime, as the Germans had sub – Deadly sailors and awesome sea bombs.
The ship would have been teleported.
So, on October 28 of the same year, the experiment happened again, but unlike the nausea of the first test, the effects of this new attempt would have been frightening. In addition to the ship having completely disappeared, being sighted in Virginia, near Naval Station Norfolk, 15 minutes before its “disappearance” and being returned to Philadelphia after a thunderous blue ray took place, the crew allegedly suffered injuries. dire consequences. The plot says some of them had their bodies fused to the ship’s hull, others suffered horrific fractures, and most are said to have developed schizophrenia. All because, by accident, the project would have achieved the first case of teleportation and time travel. That’s right, the few who returned without after-effects reportedly said the ship was sent to 1983, where two crews stayed and did not return for the 1940s. Seeing all the harm done to the crew, the Navy would have given up on the project as a whole.
Carl Allen was the sailor responsible for this “story”.
This story began with Sailor Carl Allen, who was on a ship in Norfolk, and allegedly saw the USS Eldridge emerge from the sea, shrouded in green haze, and disappear moments later. He got scared and began to write letters about the event of which he would be the only witness. Years later, he sent the letters to astronomer and ufologist Morris K. Jessup, who used them as the basis for The Expanding Case for the UFO, in which he recounted interdimensional encounters, aliens and half of the world. History Channel nighttime programming. The book had great repercussions and inspired a relevant part of the fiction of the time. In 1959, after his wife separated from him, Morris was questioned by the Navy and the next day was found dead in his own car in a case reported as suicide by inhaling carbon monoxide. While some conspirologists say he was “killed” by the authorities, the family believe he committed suicide given a case of deep depression that plagued him, as he had been dumped by his wife, received terrible reviews for his work and always argued for anything with friends.
Morris K. Jessup committed suicide in 1959.
Carl, who started this story, was interviewed in 1969 and confessed to the Bureau of Aerial Phenomena Research that he made up the whole story. However, in 1979 he testified for The Philadelphia Experiment: Project Invisibility, which cemented the alleged case in the popular American imagination and served as the basis for the film Project Philadelphia (1984), directed by Stewart Raffill and starring Michael Paré and Nancy Allen. . Carl died in Colorado in 1994.
