Nikola Tesla and the Ultimate Weapon (HAARP) - Masters of the Ionosphere (BBC Horizon 1996)
Recounts the history of scientific attempts from Nicolai Tesla, Marconi, Van Allen and Dennis Papadopoulos onwards to understand the atmospheric layer, known as the ionosphere and its weaponitization by the US Military in Alaska which has led to the establishment of HAARP (High Altitude Auroral Research Project)
which will beam energy directly into the ionosphere and thereby stimulate or heat small, well-defined volumes of it. Back on the ground, an array of geophysical research instruments--such as low-frequency receivers, magnetometers, an ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) diagnostic radar, optical, and infrared spectrometers and cameras--try to see what happens to the ionosphere as a result of these signals.
Some ecologists insist HAARP is that and much more. And now the evidence that weaponized HAARP complexes are being built by the USA, Russia, and China in remote regions across the world has surfaced.
The following is part of the transcript of a BBC Horizon programme
Masters of the Ionosphere
PROF. NEAL BROWN: I have spent 30 years studying the, the Northern Lights and
they're still as intriguing to me today as when I first came to Alaska. They're
always changing movements in the sky and the colours and the shapes they form,
it's sort of like watching clouds on a summer's day and imagining different
animals in the clouds.
NARRATOR: The aurora is a visible manifestation of the magnetic tussle between
the Earth and the sun. Our protective magnetosphere has holes on the North and
South Pole where the magnetic field lines bunch together. As the solar wind
buffets and streams past,
a multi-coloured ring as they hit the ionosphere. This is the aurora. These
lights only represent a tiny proportion of the energy being released. The flow
of the solar wind creates a huge electric potential.
NEAL BROWN: It results in a gigantic electrical current flowing parallel to the
surface of the Earth,
lights but sometimes a little larger. That we call an electrojet. It amounts to
thousands of amperes of electrical current.
generating the ELF waves needed to communicate with submarines. But this was
DENNIS PAPADOPOULOS: And it went outside the laboratory towards the Navy. The
Navy was hoping that they would have the antenna that Nick had proposed in one
form or another, so any alternative will endanger that idea, so they didn't
want to proceed with that, and the issue was closed at the time.
NARRATOR: Papadopoulos was frustrated by the Navy's rejection. But elsewhere
scientists continued to develop a range of techniques for researching the
ionosphere. One device in particular was useful:
machines beam short-wave radiation directly into the ionosphere deliberately
DR. TERRY ROBINSON: What it is analogous to almost directly, is a microwave
oven heating system. The heating agent is the electromagnetic wave. The
electro-magnetic wave itself is not hot. It generates heat simply by causing
motion in the material that it interacts with and the motion sets up a friction
force, as I've said, and that is what generates the heat, so it's simply like
taking the electrons and the neutrals, rubbing them together, rubbing two
matches together if you like, in the upper atmosphere and that generates heat.
ionosphere with this technology.
TERRY ROBINSON: One of the experiments they tried was to modulate the heater
with music from a hi-fi system. I think in fact the first experiment they, they
used the 'Ride of the Valkyries' so they transmitted these signals on the
heater up to the electrojet and the electrojet responded and re-transmitted
these acoustic frequencies back directly to the ground, so it was as if the,
the electrojet was acting like a huge vocal cord.
