Philadelphia Experiment Episode
As a big fan of Crime Junkies, I was super excited for the launch of this channel. It’s awesome! The stories are super interesting and your storytelling technique is on point. Loved this episode too; just wanted to point out that your description of the effect of degaussing isn’t 100% accurate. You’re absolutely correct that’s it’s been used since WW2 to reduce a ship’s magnetic field. But, degaussing does not render a ship invisible to radar. Instead, degaussing is used to make ships less vulnerable to magnetic mines (i.e. smaller magnetic field, less chance that the mines will be attracted to the ship’s hull).You might be interested to know that there was a real Project RAINBOW with the goal of making aircraft invisible (or at least less visible) to radar. But not through the use of force fields, far-out physics, etc. In the late 1950s, the CIA experimented with applying radar-absorbent materials to its U-2 spy planes in an attempt to reduce the planes’ radar signature. However, because this technique was ineffective and actually compromised the planes’ performance (one plane crashed I think) it was discontinued. Again, great stuff. Love you channel. Keep ‘em coming!
