What really happened during the Philadelphia Experiment? In the first experiment, an alleged method of electrical field manipulation allowed the USS Eldridge to be rendered invisible on July 22, 1943 in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. The second rumored experiment was the teleportation and small-scale time travel (with the ship sent a few seconds in the past) of the USS Eldridge from the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard to Norfolk, Virginia, on October 28, 1943.
Philadelphia experiment - The story printed below will probably seem to you like a complete science fiction - fantasy story. The thing is - there is still one living survivor to this amazing story - Alfred Bielek. He was born on 4th August 1916 and in August 2005 lies in a hospital bed in Lee County Memorial Hospital in Florida - he has suffered a stroke. He is in a critical condition.
