The project was promoted by the
Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, which planned to detonate six
thermonuclear bombs underground to excavate a harbor at Cape
Thompson, Alaska. The plan of the project organizers was that if
this application of nuclear technology could be tested on United
States soil these technologies could be easily promoted in other
friendly countries. This would enable, for example, easy excavation
of a new Suez or Panama Canal, both of which were in the minds of
Project Plowshare was another
Jules Verne story which was only too true.
Dr. Teller returned to Alaska in
1987 to promote the Star Wars defense initiative. He was proposing
to install a laser-like weapon on the North Slope of Alaska, These
new system details were not openly discussed, because "Star Wars"
systems are classified. From the tone, and content, of his
presentations however, we deduce that what he was promoting in 1987
may have been a new and complex weapon system the HAARP project.
The use of ground, rather than satellite systems, was explained by Eastlund in a recent interview when he said,
This allows steering, focusing,
modulating, and otherwise manipulating, to the will of the operator,
provided the operator knows the frequencies and wave forms necessary
to change the electromagnetic structure of ionospheric chemicals and
conditions. The ability to manipulate the ionosphere is critical to
a planetary shield, which was one of the applications defined by Dr.
Eastlund and referred to in his, and the other, patents assigned to
Those transmitters already operating have been reported by some to have had negative effects beyond the borders of the countries using them. 168,169

Even though firing up these new heaters would violate the interests of the majority of humans on the planet, by impinging on internationally recognized free spaces, the project moves forward in the interest of "science" and one country's "national security".
At whose expense, and under whose
control, is the naturally occurring global shield - the ionosphere -
In these two reports they disclosed the development of an "Artificial Ionospheric Mirror (AIM)". In fact, a careful reading of the Eastlund patents and the nine other patents uncovered in our research and the HAARP Documents read as though they were written by the same person.
As Eastlund said,
Dr. Eastlund's system was Star Wars without the vulnerability of satellites, but with a lot of other implications. In August 1991, Peter Koert was granted a patent for a system which could produce an Artificial Ionospheric Mirror composed of a plasma layer which could be tilted. In his patent he cites the earlier work of Dr. Eastlund. 173
Koert was also one of the "key
personnel" identified in the contracts between APTI and the United
States military for building the HAARP transmitter. 174 The HAARP
system provides a "proof-of-concept" system for demonstrating this
technology. The patent issued to Koert was one of several of his
patents useful to the HAARP project, all of which were assigned to
APTI, as shown in the United States government's own records.

In February, 1995, the Star Wars missile defense shield was supposed to be dead. The United States House of Representatives by a 218 to 212 voted to kill the program.175
Yet HAARP continues on while the motives
of the military are hidden from the world.
So ended the concept of nuclear
excavation and Dr. Teller's "safe" use of nuclear energy. Perhaps
its time we took a harder look at HAARP?
