HAARP is not down!
And the University of Alaska Fairbanks will take ownership of the controversial Gakona’s High Frequency Active Auroral Program.
After two bumpy years waiting for the US Air Force to decide what to do with HAARP, The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), has won its bid to take over the facility for research purposes.
About a year ago, UAF managed to delay the Air Force’s plan to close and demolish the HAARP compound. Now, UAF will take ownership of the $200 million facility next month.

And then we have two years to work with the Air Force to come to an agreement to transfer land (1500 acres of land out of the 5500 acres the Air Force owns in Gakona).[/quote_box_center]
The HAARP facility has inspired at least one book: Angels Don’t Play This Haarp, by Nick Begich.
HAARP turns the ionosphere into a laboratory. And there’s a lot of science that can be done. The Navy, in the past, has been interested in using the ionosphere like an antenna, to generate extremely low frequency waves to communicate with submarines. And even things like creating simulation in the ionosphere to modulate radio waves and to understand its strong influence on satellite communications. Or is it more linked to top secret military research.
