High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program

High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program

It’s been a suspected death beam, a secret tool to control the weather and even a weapon to manipulate the human mind. Now, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, better known by its acronym, HAARP, has reached the final stage of its strange journey that began with Cold War concerns about nuclear war: Next month, the Alaska-based research station will be transferred to civilian control.

HAARP will be handed over in August to the University of Alaska, confirmed Othana Zuch, an Air Force spokesperson. A ceremony for the handover is also scheduled for that month.

“The Air Force Research Lab has control of the HAARP facility until Aug. 11,” Marmian Grimes, a university of spokesperson, wrote in an email to The Intercept. “After that, the university will have access to the site under the terms of an agreement between [University of Alaska Fairbanks] and the Air Force. That agreement allows access for two years, which will provide the university and the Air Force time to negotiate an agreement regarding the transfer of the land.”

Located on a site near the town of Gakona, Alaska, HAARP consists of 360 radio transmitters and 180 antennas, which are used to generate radio waves that heat up the ionosphere by accelerating electrons, allowing scientists to conduct experiments.

    Any truth to the rumor that Dr Strangelove will be a guest speaker?

    For some fun reading, wiki Globus 2. My cousin works for a company that does annual maintenance on it…in the small town in Norway, they ID themselves as birdwatchers from the US. Nobody is fooled by that.

      Lutheran church across Stadium Way almost all turned into splinters. I suppose more student apartments will replace it.

        Two cycles, and you forgot the van. The car is for sale and the truck is for sale as soon as I find out how much it is worth. The van is at a friends house with all the stuff in it that was in the way in the shop preventing me from working on the truck, both bikes are inside.
        Too many vehicles laying around I know, I need to downsize.
