Philadelphia Experiment

Return to chapter overview

Project Rainbow was allegedly an experiment conducted upon a small destroyer escort ship during World War II, both in the Philadelphia Naval Yard and at sea; the goal was to make that ship invisible to enemy detection.


1943, an early attempt at "Stealth" (radar invisibility). Time & space experiments conducted aboard the USS Eldridge.


A warship was rendered invisible in the Philadelphia Naval Yard, then teleported instantly to Norfolk, Virginia, and back. But this technological breakthrough was achieved at such horrific human cost--crewmen missing or gone insane, dead sailors fused into bulkheads--that authorities deep-sixed the experiment. Or so goes the legend that still flourishes.
