What’s Really Going On At HAARP?

There may well be other forms of life somewhere out in the blackness of space. We don’t know. Has any of this extraterrestrial life ever come to earth? Maybe a fungus or microbe attached to a rock? That certainly could have happened.

Has a sentient extraterrestrial being ever visited our shores across millennia of open space? That’s much less likely.

Has a grey humanoid ever cut the gonads out of a cow, sucked up a hillbilly from the deep south and inserted things into his passages before depositing him back in his bed? Now, that really is unlikely.

Currently, the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program or HAARP for short is getting heat from the UFO crowd. Here, we’ll dig into the details.

What is HAARP?

HAARP was set up in Alaska to study the ionosphere for communication purposes — both military and civilian i.e., improving or destroying communication depending on who’s using it.

So, what’s the ionosphere? It’s the bit of atmosphere that goes from 80–180 km above the surface of our planet. Because there’s not much gas that high, and hence very little pressure, some electrons are free to roam before they find other ions, this allows plasma to form.

Some of the experiments at HAARP use an Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), which operates at high frequency levels to excite the ionosphere to see what happens.

Ruffles in the ionosphere disrupt communications with satellites, so info on how to avoid or create it could be useful.

It’s this IRI, specifically, that worries the conspiracy theorists. They claim they’re boiling the upper atmosphere, and that:

“HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything — living and dead.”

They blame it for natural disasters and all sorts, including:

“Floods, droughts, hurricanes, thunderstorms, earthquakes in Pakistan, Haiti and the Philippines, major power outages, the downing of TWA Flight 800, Gulf War syndrome, and chronic fatigue syndrome.”

Seems a bit far-fetched. It’s a shame, really — conspiracy nuts have ruined it for themselves. They whine and wail about all sorts of nonsense. And one day, they’ll actually get something right, and no one will believe them.


Here’s a ridiculous video of a still photo being manipulated. It looks cool, but nowhere near as cool as the research they are actually doing.

Not particularly believable. And here’s a video with some more details and a dash of scaremongering, if you can hack it:
