March 11, 1958 South Carolina Air Force B-47 Stratojet Carrying one 26-kiloton Mark 6 Nuclear Bomb (More powerful than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki.) While flying over South Carolina the cockpit suddenly showed a fault light indicating a problem with the locking pin on the bomb harnesses in the cargo bay. While investigating the error, […]
During the summer of 1957, the United States carried out 29 nuclear tests in Nevada as part of Operation Plumbbob. The radioactive debris went into the air and groundwater which then entered local communities. “Downwinders” are the name given to millions of US citizens who lived unwittingly in places where nuclear fallout would begin to kill them. […]
Sam Cohen conceived of the neutron bomb as a way of morally killing large populations of human beings, while leaving the buildings and property intact. Nuclear bombs kill by burning and melting everything for miles. When detonated the majority of a nuke’s energy is released via its explosion. Neutron bombs kill via silent radiation, with […]
Not a pleasant simulator but a great reminder that we need to change the world we live in. It’s an interactive nuclear bomb simulator that visually shows how many people could die, how far away it could reach and how far the radiation could travel from a selection of different nuclear weapons. The tool exists to […]
In the 1950s and 1960s, the Army used motorized blowers atop a low-income housing high-rise, at schools and from the backs of station wagons to disperse a radioactive compound into the air of St. Louis. This was done in the poorest parts of the city. The material being sprayed was zinc cadmium sulfide. The greatest concentration […]
Operation LAC (Large Area Coverage), was a Chemical Corps operation in 1957 and 1958 which dispersed microscopic zinc cadmium sulfide (ZnCdS) particles over much of the United States. The purpose was to determine the dispersion and geographic range of biological or chemical agents. It was not thought at the time to pose any particular health […]
Declassified documents released to the public by the U.S. Air Force confirm that it partnered with a Canadian company, Avro Aircraft, to build high speed advanced round aircraft. This partnership started in 1956 and was named “Project 1794″. They openly admitted that reported UFO sightings by pilots and air traffic control towers were in fact, advanced military aircraft. They allowed people to think they were seeing alien aircraft to keep the project secured and lied directly, in response, to all inquiries by public offices.
According to the US National Archives, the initiative was to build a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle with a top speed between Mach 3 to Mach 4 and an altitude ceiling above 100,000 ft. The USAF contracted “Avro Canada” to build the aircraft, all projects that were known publicly were falsely declared unsuccessful to the public. The release of documents due to “The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)”, by the DOD in 2016, validated years of witness testimony where people were falsely identified as crazy or unreliable.
With its round design standing at nearly five feet tall and 18 feet wide, the Avro Canada VZ-9AV Avrocar looks like a small UFO:
