Great.  We all know what happened last time they did this...

Don't joke around about that. They didn't even let Jesse Ventura inside that place when he showed up uninvited, and he's ex-military!

So it will merge with the actual aurora and rip a hole in the space/time continuum?

a buddy of mine's brother works there - my buddy (a EE) has toured the place and brought back pictures and diagrams for a ham radio club presentation.  the antenna array is super cool and the EMD prime movers as generators is boss.

the difference between a EE and Jess is wider than the gulf between Alaska and Russia.

Answer: nothing much.

This is a plasma mirror experiment group. You get the plasma frequency in your little green glowy patch about the same as your comm gear, and it becomes a magic mirror for looking over the horizon. Basic HAARP design tenet. This was a goal from the first, part of the C3I projection/interdiction goal set.

The Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?

For some reason all I can think of when I see this pic is the SDF-1 jumping to the other side of Pluto

In other news, the Navy has an Aurora cannon. Even the name sounds cool even if it wasn't a literal aurora cannon.

You're a bad person and you should feel bad for linking that.

Seriously, what is the purpose of making plasma clouds? Is it useful for some kind of anti-missile defense or can you use it to bounce radio communications around the world?

The truth about HAARP is just as mysterious as the stupid conspiracy theories.

You can't explain that.

Sounds like an item from a very specialized bucket list for super-nerds and geeks, doesn't it? Mind you, that pretty much describes the writers for The Simpsons and Futurama.

Have you seen David X. Cohen's flaming tuba clip from Burning Man? He's wearing a leather kilt. He's play a tuba. It's on fire. How about Matt Groening and his son Abe (IIRC)  on the infamous "Vomit Comet"?

If you want a bucket list for nerds and geeks (non-specialized) try the book Have your poo rolled away by dung beetles.

It's a very short book (100 items) but interesting. I have managed to do a couple of the things but it would be a challenge to do all 100.

You can do a number of things with that. Consider it to be a somewhat narrow band mirror. You can, with the right positioning and plasma frequency, listen over the horizon, or use it to bounce a radar beam over the horizon. Or you can slam it between a satellite and its ground station and cut the link. Or a number of other neat tricks that are still not discussable.

NRL is so awesome.... inspired by Thomas Edison it opened its doors in 1923. Too bad it sits right on the stinkiest part of the damn Potomac River.
