Interdimensional Travel, Albert Einstein, And Missing Sailors: The Strange Truth Behind The Chilling Philadelphia Experiment

WORLD HISTORY | July 30, 2023

Written by Sarah Norman

The tale of the Philadelphia Experiment is a wild story full of invisible ships, UFOs, covert missions, a government cover-up, and even involvement from Albert Einstein. However, the question remains: Was the story surrounding the USS Eldridge a total hoax or an extraordinary manifestation of science fiction?

According to accounts, the Philadelphia Experiment supposedly occurred at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in Pennsylvania, around October 28, 1943. A former merchant mariner named Carl M. Allen claimed to have witnessed a U.S. Navy ship completely vanish and then rematerialize in the shipyard minutes later.

Over the years, various versions of the alleged experiment have circulated in paranormal literature and gained popularity through motion pictures, often presenting conflicting narratives. The U.S. Navy, on the other hand, maintains that no such experiment took place. They argue that the details of the story contradict well-established facts about the USS Eldridge and that the scientific principles supposedly underlying the experiment are non-existent. Continue down the rabbit hole with us as we try to understand exactly what happened on the USS Eldridge.

What we know as the Philadelphia Experiment was actually an alleged top secret government project codenamed Operation Rainbow, led by none other than Albert Einstein as a kind of test for his unified field theory along with alleged alien invisibility technology that would render US ships invisible to enemy radar.

On what scholars believe to be October 28, 1943, the USS Eldridge was outfitted with alien tech at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. As soon as the experiment began the Eldridge started vibrating while emitting a greenish blue glow before vanishing into the air.
