HAARP: The Government's Most Dangerous Program
Like A Candle To The Sun
Celestial lightshows are not the only indication of a coming HAARP attack, believe some conspiracy theorists.
On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 earthquake rocked Japan, triggering a massive tsunami that inundated much of its Pacific coastline with waves as high as 128 feet. It was the deadliest earthquake to ever hit Japan; more than 15,000 people died and thousands remain missing. Curiously, data collected by the NASA Goddard Space Center in Maryland noted that the ionosphere directly above the epicenter of the quake had been rapidly and inexplicably heated to a high degree just days before the deadly event.
A possibly theory is that radon released by the impending quake may have heated the atmosphere, but the Goddard data shows neat and near-perfect heat rings above the epicenter, not the wild patches of heat that would occur as a result of escaped radon.
Some conspiracy theorists fear that this secret weapon may also have its crosshairs set on the skies. On February 1, 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated in midair as it attempted reentry into the earth's atmosphere. The official reason given was that a piece of foam insulation struck the wing of the space shuttle, allowing intensely hot gases to penetrate the craft during reentry, destroy the support structure, and thereby force the shuttle to break apart.
But others believe the shuttle was hit by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that disabled its electronics and fried its support systems, leading to its eventual disintegration and destruction. Critics point to discrepancies in the recovered wreckage, a strange purple bolt that seemed to strike the shuttle mere minutes before it broke apart, and a log that indicates that it "was operating in 'Missile Defense Mode,' for 90 minutes before Columbia passed through its field of influence and for 90 minutes after."
