Philadelphia Experiment

I found this interesting article in one of friends blog [].

Philadelphia Experiment

Philadelphia Experiment, carried out by the US Army in 1943, may have raised many doubts regarding it's authenticity. But if there is a slightest chance of fact in the experiment, it can be said that it is undisputedly, one of the greatest unexplained happenings of the 20th century. Something which we have been fantasizing about, but never dared to believe that it could happen.

For people coming in late, let me briefly explain The Great Philladelphia Experiment in a nutshell.It's an alleged experiment that took place in Philadelphia in 1943. A Destroyer Class ship, the USS Eldbridge, was thought to have been the subject of a radical experiment involving force fields. Witnesses who were at the actual event reported that the experiment had succeeded in turning the ship completely invisible for a short period of time. It was also reported that during this period the ship was actually physically berthed at Norfolk, Virginia, before returning to Philadelphia.

During the experiment, it was said that some of the people on board the vessel exhibited strange phenomena. Many of the crew became ill and died shortly afterwards, some had become 'embedded' in the ship itself, while others were able to 'walk through walls'. To date the experiment has remained a highly controversial story.

But something that makes a strong impression about the experiment is the fact that no person assosciated directly with the experiment survived long enough to give a detailed account to the world. Most of the ships crew died shortly after the experiment. And the few who did live, were highly disturbed, mentally as well as physically. But life evaded them soon and these men,like their fellow sailors, were laid to rest peacefully in their graves.

If the experiment is to be believed, we may possibly explain the phenomena as a practical display of Teleportation.Teleportation is the name given by science fiction writers to the feat of making an object or person disintegrate in one place while a perfect replica appears somewhere else.The general idea seems to be that the original object is scanned in such a way as to extract all the information from it, then this information is transmitted to the receiving location and used to construct the replica, not necessarily from the actual material of the original, but perhaps from atoms of the same kinds, arranged in exactly the same pattern as the original.
Philladelphia experiment points out that US Military might have mastered Teleportation Technology as early as the 1940's. At least the idea had kept a few people interested in that era, but what had happened remains unknown.But I'm sure that someone is definitely going to crack the mystery of Teleportation.
