The Philadelphia Experiment

In 1943 Project Rainbow was implemented as an attempt to render our Navy's warships invisible to enemy radar. Some investigators of the incident insist that the experiment was so successful that it not only made the Eldridge, a DE 173 destroyer, disappear... it dematerialized it---and simultaneously ripped open a hole in the space-time continuum.

The aspect of Project Rainbow was the famous Philadelphia Experiment, in which the U.S. Navy allegedly teleported a warship from Philadelphia to its dock near Norfolk by successfully applying what would come to e known as Einstein's Unified Field Theory.

According to the accounts of supposed eyewitnesses, the project ended in disaster when several crewman burst into flames during the transfer. Other seamen continued to lapse into partial invisibility during shore leave.
