US Air Force decided to close the HAARP program. High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), and with it one of the most popular research stations in the country. The Alaska-based facility is especially fond of conspiracy theorists who attribute it to mind control, weather control (including hurricanes and earthquakes), or electromagnetic pulse generation capable of cutting off electricity throughout the city. ”
The program has been in operation since 1993, and now, apart from the US Air Force, its participants include the US Navy, DARPA and the University of Alaska. According to the official version, the institute works on ionosphere research (atmospheric layers extending between 50 and even 1,000 km), specifically looking for more effective communication and surveillance methods.
Construction of the station alone cost $ 300 million. It consists of 180 antennas located in the area of 120 thousand. square meters. The program is expected to be officially completed by the end of the holiday, and the station will most likely be taken over by the University of Alaska, provided it declares its willingness to pay for its maintenance (about $ 5 million a year).
For the duration of the program the purpose of antennas was, for example, the emission of electromagnetic waves, which enabled the researchers to study the propagation of energy in the ionosphere. Their biggest success is the creation of the artificial aurora in 2005.
There is no reason to doubt the official communications, because most of the people employed in the center are civilians who are eager to share their findings and research findings. They are published in journals and as scientific papers.
