In this series, we continue with the lecture titled ‘Plasma Lab in the Sky’ that Dr. Nick Begich, author/publisher who had received an honorary doctorate for research and writings on science and politics, where he spoke about the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) and similar experiments on Earth’s ionosphere.
“Now the ionosphere I think Brooks was speaking before me was talking about solar flares and the kind of activities that cause disturbances on the power grid. They also caused disturbances in the ionosphere which affects and can affect global communications. And so part of this initially was to learn more about the ionosphere and determine whether or not we could stabilize the ionosphere during these events to facilitate communication or conversely purposely disturb the ionosphere in such a way as to disrupt everyone’s communication and yet be able because we’re generating the signals to disturb it to be able to carry our own communication. So, for military purposes, if you think about it, being able to knock everybody else’s communication, keep your own going, certainly presents some pretty good strategic advantages.
The other idea on this and this kind of gives you an idea of one of the things that Dr Eastlund came up with was this global shield:
and what he was going to do there and I think the next one shows it:
is take and pump energy up usually naturally-occurring magnetic field lines that surround the earth that run from the South Pole to the North Pole as why waveguide, so he pumped the energy in using that cyclic resonance and then using them as wave guides, spin accelerate electrons, all the way around, and then as you activated these around the planet you create a shield and the idea was intercontinental ballistic missiles entering that field to become disrupted. You’d affect their avionics saying that they control their flight paths and be able to disrupt them enough to cause them to malfunction so they couldn’t, you know, deliver their payloads to the targets.
And so, that was his big concept: the amount of energy required in a number of antennas in the array that would be required would be huge and the ideal locations for these is in northern regions or the polar regions of the world because you want to be close to where you can inject energy into the magnetic field lines and they intersect at the poles so you don’t have to push the energy quite so far and you need large supplies of natural gas or some kind of fuel supply to run these.
So, from his perspective, you know, it’s kind of the ideal situation: you can have a missile defence system, if we had built it back then we would have violated the ABM treaty which was a bit problematic at the time. But the idea was to utilise something that you could put on US soil, that you could create a shielding system and have fuel supplies adequate to run it. So, it really offered the best strategic advantage from his perspective and he’d had several patents in the oil and gas industry. He was a plasma physicist – that was his specialty.
But this became a project that was pretty interesting to the US government.
