HAARP’s current research program has been called ‘unprecedented.’
The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facility is currently conducting a wide-ranging science campaign that includes bouncing signals off the moon and Jupiter.
HAARP consists of 180 antennas designed to transmit signals into the ionosphere, which stretches from 30 miles (48 kilometers) to 600 miles (965 km) above sea level. The ionosphere is seen as the area where Earth’s atmosphere meets space, according to NASA.
The ionosphere, which is heavily impacted by solar weather conditions, reflects radio waves. This region of the atmosphere also contains many satellites. According to Jessica Matthews (HAARP program manager), HAARP is currently conducting a 10-day research campaign that is the “largest and most diverse to date,” HAARP program manager Jessica Matthews said in a statement
Thirteen different experiments will be conducted during the campaign in order to test HAARP’s abilities, including bouncing signals off of the moon and Jupiter.
One of the most ambitious experiments being carried out during HAARP’s current campaign is known as “Jupiter Bounce,” or “Interplanetary Ionosonde.” This experiment, according to a statement from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), seeks to study ionospheric irregularities on Jupiter, according to a statement from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).
The experiment will test how well HAARP can bounce signals off the ionosphere of Jupiter, while also determining how well receivers at the University of New Mexico’s Long Wavelength Array can receive the reflected signals. The experiment is “the largest active remote sensing operation in history,” according to the UAF statement.
“This is a first-of-its-kind experiment (which) at least to my knowledge has never been attempted before,” HAARP research support services lead Evans Callis told Alaska Public Media
“We transmit several different frequencies from HAARP directed at Jupiter. We listen for the echo that returns, and that should be able to tell us something about electromagnetic conditions around Jupiter.”
Another experiment, known as “Moon Bounce,” will see signals bounced off the moon back towards receivers in New Mexico and California. These signals will be evaluated for their use in determining the composition of near-Earth asteroids for future planetary defense purposes.
Meanwhile, HAARP’s “Making the Invisible Visible” experiment will “test if hot electrons are capable of producing the continuum (white) emissions present in STEVE airglow.” STEVE, short for Strong Thermal Emission Velocity Enhancement, is an aurora-like phenomenon that occurs when charged particles from the sun interact with Earth’s ionosphere.
“If we see that air glow and it matches the wavelength of light that we see from naturally occurring STEVE, that would give us indication that the hot electrons are playing some role in the formation of STEVE,” Callis said.
One of the more unique experiments, “Ghosts in the Airglow,” will be a mixture of art and atmospheric research to “play with Earth’s atmosphere’s liminal boundaries and outer space,” the project’s website.
The experiment will use the ionosphere to study radio propagation. Images, spoken word and sound art will be played through a system called HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) which sends energy into the upper atmosphere.
The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facility was completed in 1993 by a joint effort between multiple United States military research agencies, such as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Air Force Research Laboratory, and Office of Naval Research. However, in 2015 jurisdiction over HAARP was transferred to the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Although the facility is mostly used for upper-atmospheric research, it has unfortunately been targeted by numerous conspiracy theories.
In The U.S government built the facility nearly three decades ago, and many people have accused them of utilizing it to change the weather, trigger earthquakes, create “chemtrails,” or even broadcast mind-control signals.
Many suspect HHAARP was used to create the Fukushima tsunami and resulting nuclear disaster.
