The Philadelphia Experiment is one of the most grotesque military urban legends ever — and it has endured as an infamous World War II conspiracy theory. Around October 28, 1943, the U.S. Navy destroyer escort USS Eldridge was claimed to have been rendered invisible (or “cloaked”) to enemy devices. The tale converges with many narratives, from aliens to interdimensional travel, to Bigfoot, and despite its age has refused to die down in the slightest within the collective imagination. Let’s explore this bizarre conspiracy in this basic overview of the topic. There will be a more in-depth look into the individuals surrounding the incident in the next episode.
