Reynold’s Wrap

I mean, sure, it’s an interesting story

The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, has been called a missile-defense tool and a mind-control device. The truth is a bit less ominous.
If the paranoid blogosphere is to be believed, every morning a group of plasma-physics grad students wakes up at a research facility in Gakona, Alaska, 200 miles north of Anchorage, and prepares for another day of playing God. It’s cold, dark as a mineshaft in winter, and the day’s work does little to cheer the mood. Depending on the unpredictable agendas of military scientists, this group of technicians must shoot radio waves into the upper reaches of our atmosphere to create missile shields, eviscerate enemy satellites, set off the occasional earthquake, or control the minds of millions of people…

But really the best part of the article are the comments

If this project is so wonderful and has no sinister military applications, why is it funded by the USAF and Navy? And why would DARPA be involved if the research was of a peaceful nature.


All he needs to do is keep an open mind and accept that HAARP could be used (or developed further) as a deadly weapon, if placed in the wrong hands. Russia have a similar device, do you think that is used for public protection? Or do you think only foreign governments would use such a device as a weapon?

Anyhow, with those type of fun comments and oh so intriguing theories you would hope that Insta’s take would contain a touch more pith.

    I’ve read of those conspiracy theories around HAARP. Great entertainment from paranoid schizophrenics, all of it.
    As an amateur radio operator, I’m interested in the results of that research; the ionosphere and Van Allen belt are only partially understood unto this day, even though they both directly impact global communications.

    Sounds like a bunch of X-Files fans jonesing for the next movie.

    Yeah, it’s not like their research is ever applied to something of a peaceful nature like, you know, the internet or something.

    Shame, Dave, for shame! Al Gore invented the internet, doncha know?!?!?!!

    Just to be on the safe side, I strongly recommend to ordinary citizens that they look into Protective Aluminum Caps Online.
