Officially HAARP – or the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program to give it its full name – is a cutting edge transmitter facility used to study the properties and behaviour of the ionosphere.
The ionosphere, the layer of the Earth’s atmosphere which makes it possible to ‘bend’ radio signals around the planet, is created by the interaction of the upper atmosphere and solar radiation.
HAARP was built in the early 1990s and within a few years questions about its true purpose began to be raised. The European Parliament discussed HAARP in 1998 and concluded that it should be shut down until its effect could fully assessed.
They also expressed regret that the US government had refused to send a representative to discuss the mysterious project.
HAARP’s true purpose has long been the subject of speculation. It has been seen as a weather control device, a weapon, and even a portal to an alien dimension.
Conspiracy theorists have suggested that HAARP’s 180 72-foot antenna towers can be used to send super-powerful radio waves bouncing off the ionosphere and deep underground – creating a ground-penetrating radar capable of mapping any enemy’s deepest bunkers.
Scientist Dr. Nick Begich, active in the public campaign against HAARP, describes HAARP as being …”super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere [upper layer of the atmosphere] by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything – living or dead.”
He says the array is a “super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas.
Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything – living or dead.”
He has claimed that the HAARP facility could be used to trigger earthquakes and turn the upper atmosphere into a giant lens so that “the sky would literally appear to burn.”
According to Dr. Rosalie Bertell, HAARP is “part of an integrated weapons system which has potentially devastating environmental consequences.”
Dr. Bertell described HAARP as “a gigantic heater that can cause major disruptions in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet.”
But according to conspiracy theorist Merlin-TM, the truth about HAARP is even stranger, and even more unbelievable, than those scientists claim: “When attuned to specific frequencies,” he says, “the phased array antennas act as a window or portal for nefarious aliens to enter into this dimension.
“When the security cameras are taken offline, that is when the doorway is most likely being activated.
“When the ionosphere is artificially stimulated by focused heat, it creates a very unstable wormhole, which can have devastating side effects, like plane crashes and miscellaneous portal spirals.
“Under certain extreme atmospheric conditions, spontaneous human combustion could occur, as well as random dematerialisation.”
Merlin points to ‘noticeable ripples’ being created in the sky above the installation, which are visible in screen captures from HAARP’s now-defunct webcam.
HAARP is, according to his site , a gateway to another world.
Dr. Bernard Eastland’s original 1987 patent for HAARP contains. predictably, no mention of interdimensional travel. It does, though, go into considerable depth about how his planned antenna array could be used to disrupt communications on a wide, even global scale.
HAARP’s true power is unclear, and most of the conspiracy theories should be taken with a large pinch of salt, but even if its scope is limited to the feature set outlined in Eastland’s patent document, it is a formidably potent installation.
