History Channel will have a segment on the Philadelphia Experiment in there new series on Time Travel called "Time Travelers" being produced. I was contacted and help supply some source material and information for the production.
July / 2013
Over the past 13+ years I have made under $30 in donations to keep it active, hosting of this website has cost over $90/year. Yes I get many mails saying how great this is but $30 in over 10+ years, and over 250 visitors a day, I think people can help more. Read this site and do the right thing and donate to keeping it open.

I may be doing a spot on "William Shatner's Weird or What" in the coming season...
".... William Shatner's Weird or What. In case you are not familiar with the show, we take a look at strange and unexplained stories and incidents and attempt to provide theories for these stories without solving or debunking anything. Getting to the point, we have begun some research into the Philadelphia Experiment as a possible story for the show and are looking for someone who can explain and outline the key points to the audience in a short interview. I came across your name and your book, and seeing as you are well versed in this event, I was wondering if this is something that you would possibly be interested in participating in."

September 17th 2007
I have been contacted for a On-Camera Interview for STORY HOUSE Productions. STORY HOUSE is an international, award-winning film and television production company with branches in Washington, DC and Munich and Berlin, Germany. Presently in their Berlin branch, they are producing a series of science documentaries called “Galileo Mystery”, which is broadcasted in the German TV-Cannel ProSieben. One Episode I will be in will deal with the Philadelphia Experiment.
September 27th 2005 - Continued Interest, More Interviews
I was interviewed in the Philadelphia Navy Yard with Mark Moran & Mark Sceurman for The TV Series "Weird U.S." On The History Channel
September 21, 2000 - Death of a Legend Continued
The Scrap Metal Trading Company stated that the Eldridge was transferred to a demolition company for dismantle/destruction, and that they will try to provide more information on the name of the demolition company, and any photos they may of taken.
October 22, 1999 - Death of a Legend
I received a UPS Worldwide Express Envelope today marked Urgent. It was from a scrap metal Trading Corporation in Pirae Greece the letter states;
Looks as though they are looking for a buyer before turning it into scrap metal.
Yet to be released, this book ("The Philadelphia Experiment from A-Z") has been written to provide the reader with a complete overview of all acquired information to date on the Philadelphia Experiment of 1943. Currently there are more then 300 Pages (not including pictures) in 9"x6" format. Much of the book has been written by myself, with help from Rick Andersen in the science sections, and Montauk areas.
I have spent over ten years digging through books, making phone calls and meeting various people in an effort to compile the following information. I been interested in the subject of mass displacement, time travel, and other fringe topics for a number of years.
The authors interest in the Philadelphia Experiment goes back to the 1980s with the release of The Philadelphia Experiment, a science-fiction movie drama based on the legend. Later that same week I was in my local public library, and found The Philadelphia Experiment: Project Invisibility in pocket novel form, by Charles Berlitz and William Moore. Knowing that books are often better than the movies, I decided to check the book out. Upon reading the book, it became very evident that the authors did not consider the experiment as a fantasy. From here I began to collect information on the experiment, and so the journey began. As we fast-forward over eight years, we find that the legend of the Philadelphia Experiment is far from dead. The slim facts that remain are continually being twisted and augmented; this book was written to pull the twisted information back into perspective.
At present the legend of The Philadelphia Experiment itself revolves around a small group of people that will not be quoted, much less named. These people claim to have unusual knowledge, or even to have been personally involved in the experiment. When these self-proclaimed witnesses do turn up and are asked any direct question, they usually brush it aside or respond using vague (or "technical sounding" to the layman) terms. In preparing this book, and wading through the recent claims of "inside knowledge" on the PX that some are asserting, I have often found myself lamenting "How about showing us some schematic diagrams!" or, as John Lennon might have said, "Just give me some truth!" Much of what is out there is pseudo-scientific psycho-spiritual fluff. Nevertheless, even though I feel that the credibility of some of the individuals and events discussed in this book are dubious at best, I have included them so that you can see what the present legend is, and how it continues to be embellished.
I think it is important that people start reading The Full Story when pursuing any fringe topic like Ufology, the Bermuda Triangle, etc. There are plenty of paranoid delusionists writing books like "Aliens told me Humans taste like chicken..."

The following excerpt from my book is taking from the beginning....
The following account, culled from a variety of sources and "self-proclaimed witnesses," describes an event that may or may not have actually taken place. It is the story - or legend - of what has become popularly known as the "Philadelphia Experiment," also referred to as Project Rainbow.
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. The accounts vary as to whether the original idea was to achieve invisibility to enemy radar or whether the prize sought after was more profound: optical invisibility. Either way, it is commonly believed that the mechanism involved was the generation of an incredibly intense magnetic field around the ship, which would cause refraction or bending of light or radar waves around the ship, much like a mirage created by heated air over a road on a summer day. The legend goes on to say that the experiment was a complete success... except that the ship actually disappeared physically for a time, and then returned. They wanted to "cloak" the ship from view, but they got de-materialization and teleportation instead..
It has been claimed that the Philadelphia Experiment was partly an investigation into how Albert Einstein's "Unified Field Theory for Gravitation and Electricity" might be used to advantage in the development of electronic camouflage for ships at sea. Einstein allegedly published his Unified Theory around 1925-27 in German, in a Prussian scientific journal, but it was later withdrawn as incomplete. This research was aimed at using intense electromagnetic fields to mask a ship from incoming projectiles, mainly torpedoes. This was later extended to include a study of creating radar invisibility by a similar field in the air rather than in the water.
The story begins in June of 1943, with the U.S.S. Eldridge, DE (Destroyer Escort) 173, being fitted with tons of experimental electronic equipment. This included, according to one source, two massive generators of 75 KVA each, mounted where the forward gun turret would have been, distributing their power through four magnetic coils mounted on the deck. Three RF transmitters (2 megawatt CW each, mounted on the deck), three thousand '6L6' power amplifier tubes (used to drive the field coils of the two generators), special synchronizing and modulation circuits, and a host of other specialized hardware were employed to generate massive electromagnetic fields which, when properly configured, would be able to bend light and radio waves around the ship, thus making it invisible to enemy observers.
The experiment, said to have taken place at the Philadelphia Naval Yard and also at sea, took place on at least one occasion while in full view of the Merchant Marine ship S.S. Andrew Furuseth, and other observation ships. The Andrew Furuseth becomes significant because one of its crewmen is the source of most of the original material making up the PX legend. Carlos Allende, a.k.a. Carl Allen, wrote a series of strange letters to one Dr. Morris K. Jessup in the 1950's in which he described what he claims to have witnessed: at least one of the several phases of the Philadelphia Experiment.
At 0900 hours, on July 22nd, 1943, so the story goes, the power to the generators was turned on, and the massive electromagnetic fields started to build up. A greenish fog was seen to slowly envelop the ship, concealing it from view. Then the fog itself is said to have disappeared, taking the Eldridge with it, leaving only undisturbed water where the ship had been anchored only moments before.
The elite officers of the Navy and scientists involved gazed in awe at their greatest achievement: the ship and crew were not only radar invisible but invisible to the eye as well! Everything worked as planned, and about fifteen minutes later they ordered the men to shut down the generators. The greenish fog slowly reappeared, and the Eldridge began to dematerialize as the fog subsided, but it was evident to all that something had gone wrong.
When boarded by personnel from shore, the crew above deck were found to be disoriented and nauseous. The Navy removed the crew, and shortly after obtained another. In the end, the Navy decided that they only wanted radar invisibility, and the equipment was altered.
On the 28th of October in 1943, at 17:15, the final test on the Eldridge was performed. The electromagnetic field generators were turned on again, and the Eldridge became near-invisible; only a faint outline of the hull remained visible in the water. Everything was fine for the first few seconds, and then, in a blinding blue flash, the ship completely vanished. Within seconds it reappeared miles away, in Norfolk, Virginia, and was seen for several minutes. The Eldridge then disappeared from Norfolk as mysteriously as it had arrived, and reappeared back in Philadelphia Naval Yard. This time most of the sailors were violently sick. Some of the crew were simply "missing" never to return. Some went crazy, but, strangest of all, five men were fused to the metal in the ship's structure.
The men that survived were never the same again. Those that lived were discharged as "mentally unfit" for duty, regardless of their true condition.
So, what had begun as an experiment in electronic camouflage, ended up as an accidental teleportation of an entire ship and crew, to a distant location and back again, all in a matter of minutes!
Although the above may seem fantastic, one must remember, that in the 1940s the atomic bomb was also being invented.
That is the composite Philadelphia Experiment (PX) legend as it has stood up until very recently, when certain new details were added by a few sources who claim to be "remembering" their own participation in the project after years of brainwashing to remove such memories. We will explore these new claims later on in the book.
After reading the above some basic questions my come to mind such as:
|Is there any evidence that an experiment of this nature was really performed on the U.S.S. Eldridge (or any other ship) in 1943?|
|Did the Eldridge really "teleport" over 600 km in the blink of an eye? How could such an unusual assertion have been made?|
|If there really was an experiment of this nature, what happened to the men involved, and are any of the witnesses still alive after fifty years? Have any of them come forth and told their stories?|
|How could the Navy have kept such a technological breakthrough as implied by the PX covered up for over 50 years?|
|What kind of technology could have been implemented to cause the events discussed?|
|Were Einstein's theories really involved? Was his "Unified Field Theory" ever really "completed?"|
|Is the experiment still continuing behind closed doors today?|
You can read this small opening chapter above!
- Information about me (Andrew Hochheimer) and Rick Andersen
With all the different sources of information available on the PX (over 65 books, tapes, etc.) one begins to look at all the dates, and wonder if they all "jive?" This time line was created to give the reader an overall picture of events that took place. From a fire in the Eldridge's Galley, to every four hrs of the day to day running of the ship are detailed.
In the legend of the Philadelphia Experiment two dates are presented as being the date of the main "deadly" experiment, this chapter explores all the sources and dates given.
Information on Carl Allen, his strange history, his involvement in the Philadelphia Experiment, and some NEVER published before accounts of what he seen while viewing the Experiment.
This section addresses a lot of opposing information published about Mr. Jessup; Was he ever officially awarded his Ph. D. or was he as a few books state "a Used Auto Parts Salesman." Was Morris Jessup 'Troubled' just Before he 'committed suicide' or was the world 'His Oyster?' Did Jessup die in the park or in his own garage? Was his drunk at the time?
This section covers the mysteriously annotated copy of Mr. Jessups book, "The Case for the UFO" that was mailed to Admiral N. Furth, Chief of the Office of Naval Research, with a mysterious "HAPPY EASTER" written on the manila envelope. The unknown commentators implied knowledge of UFOs and their propulsion systems, and of at least two different alien races.
The name Dr. Rinehart first appeared in the fiction novel "Thin Air" by George E. Simpson and Neil R. Burger. Dr. Rinehart was later used by Bill Moore as a pseudonym for a scientist that had worked on some early calculations (possibly used in an experiment) on the bending of light. Alfred Bielek and Preston Nichols contend that Dr. Rinehart was actually John von Neumann (much to our amusement.) This section will examine the various comments made in regards to Dr. Rinehart.
A number of ships are described as being part of, or witness to, the Philadelphia Experiment. This section will discuss the various ships in detail, and their alleged involvement in the experiment.
The after effects of the experiment are discussed.
This chapter covers such topics as: The "witnesses", Effects of teleportation, Some afterthoughts on our witnesses
This section is a list of a few (over fifty) people that were said to be in some way involved in the experiment by various individuals. It also encompasses people that have researched the experiment. This list is by no means complete as the list of players continues to grow, and somehow change in the field of a witnesss dream.
Navy has investigated and supported the scientific study into Magnetism and Gravity. This chapter includes information on PROJECT MAGNET
"Reportedly based on a true incident during World War II involving an anti-radar experiment that caused a Naval battleship to disappear in Virginia..." 3½ Stars (rated Between Good and Very Good) "Video Movie Guide 1994" By Mic Martin & Marsha Porter, Pg 1032. This chapter discusses some of the following: Interview quotes from Doug Curtis producer of the PX, Alfred Bieleks memory returns, Was the movie banned in the US as Mr. Bielek contends?
Discusses possible connections between Ufology and the Philadelphia Experiment.
What does submarines, electro-magnetic equipment and Mobius Strips have in common? They are all key elements in the Soviet version of the PX.
Covers the ever evolving Montauk Project, including topics like: What connection does The Montauk Project have with the PX?, A trip inside Montauk AFB, A visit to Preston's "Space Time Labs", Montauk videos & books, Mars, Is the government erasing Montauk, Subtle changes in the story as time progresses, Was there a Montauk Project?
A breakdown of dates given.
This chapter explains the Theory in detail, rather then most books assuming you (a) already know it, or worse (b) not intelligent enough to grasp it.
In this chapter we explore the possibility that the Philadelphia Experiment really happened as described in the popular accounts. If it did take place, we had better have some scientific explanation for it, because if the PX is for real, then it goes without saying that somebody, somewhere, didnt leave it alone after the 1943 disaster, but has since gone on to develop this thing into a new technology that will have an undeniable impact on our lives. Example of some of the topics covered: Did the Philadelphia Experiment actually take place?, Which were they trying to accomplish: radar or optical invisibility?, What is refraction? What is magnetorefraction?, What is phase conjugation?, What is resonance?, What is magnetic resonance? How can magnetism be "resonant"?, Decay vs. spin pumping, What kind of equipment was used aboard ship to perform the PX?, What has radar got to do with the PX?, How does radar work? and what is radar invisibility?, What part did Einsteins relativity play in the PX?, What part do theories of "multiple dimensions" play in the PX?, Was time travel involved in the Philadelphia Experiment?
Discusses Mirages, and a number of ways to create Optical Invisibility.

The whole story of the Philadelphia Experiment stems from Carl M. Allens letters to astronomer, researcher, and writer Morris K. Jessup. Carl provided most of the "facts" that are still used in books today, for example; The name of the test ship, the location and date of the experiment, etc. With most of the "facts" coming from one individual (and later being "confirmed" by others) one begins to wonder who is Carl Allen, and is he of sound mind.
The Montauk Project was allegedly (and unsupportedly), a continuation of the Philadelphia Experiment of 1943. The experiment was conducted at Montauk AFB, in the 1950s. Montauk Air Force Station was designed to provide radar surveillance data, aircraft height determination, and Mark X IFF SIF identification data and to perform radar mapping prior to transmitting of such data to Air Defense SAGE Units

"Philadelphia Experiment http://www.wincom.net/softarts/philexp.html 1943 försökte sig amerikanska flottan på att använda avancerad stealthteknik på fartyg som inte bara skulle göra dem osynliga för fientlig radar utan även för blotta ögat. Projektet hette Project Rainbow men fick smeknamnet The Philadelphia Experiment för att det mesta av arbetet utfördes på Philadelphias marinbas. U.S.S Eldridge, DE (Destroyer Escort) 173 användes för experimentet. Skeppet försvann inte bara från radarn utan fullständigt för att sedan plötsligt bli synlig igen. Vad som är ännu konstigare, är att skeppet syntes och identifierades samtidigt 600 km ifrån platsen för experimentet."
The Above in English Translated by Trygve Kalland;
"In 1943 the American Navy tried to use advanced stealth-technology on ships that would not only make them invisible to enemy radar but also for the naked eye. The project was called Project Rainbow but was nicknamed The Philadelphia Experiment because most of the work was performed on Philadelphia Navy base. U.S.S Eldridge, DE (Destroyer Escort) 173 was used for the experiment. The ship disappeared not only from radar but completely only to suddenly become visible again. What's even more odd is that the ship was seen and identified at the same time 600 km from the place of the experiment." - Swedish PC magazine called High Score #8 1996
