Project Pegasus is a quest begun in 1968 by Andrew D. Basiago when he was serving as a child participant in the US time space exploration program, Project Pegasus.
Project Pegasus was the classified, defense related research and development program under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, DARPA, in which the US defense technical community achieved time travel on behalf of the US government, the real Philadelphia Experiment.
Project Pegasus was launched by the US government to perform remote sensing in time so that reliable information about past and future events could be provided to the US President, intelligence community, and military. It was expected that the 140 American school children secretly enrolled in Project Pegasus would continue to be involved in time travel when they grew up and went on to serve as America's first generation of chrononauts.
The children found, however, that in the process of serving as child time travelers attached to Project Pegasus, they became America's time space pioneers.
Though Basiago claims to have experienced eight different time travel technologies, most travel involved a teleporter based on technical papers supposedly found in pioneering mechanical engineer Nikola Teslaís New York City apartment after his death in January 1943. The teleporter consisted of two gray elliptical booms about eight feet tall, separated by about 10', between which a shimmering curtain of what Tesla called radiant energy was broadcast, Basiago says. Radiant energy is a form of energy that Tesla discovered that is latent and pervasive in the universe and has among its properties the capacity to bend time space.
Basiago said each of his visits to the past was different, like they were sending us to slightly different alternative realities on adjacent timelines. As these visits began to accumulate, I twice ran into myself during two different visits.
Being sent back in time to the same place and moment, but from different starting points in the present, allowed two of himselves to be in Fordís Theatre at the same time in 1865.
After the first of these two encounters with myself occurred, I was concerned that my cover might be blown, he recalled. Unlike the jump to Gettysburg, in which I was clutching a letter to Navy Secretary Gideon Welles to offer me aid and assistance in the event I was arrested, I didnít have any explanatory materials when I was sent to Fordís Theatre.
Basiagoís claims are supported by Alfred Webre, a lawyer specializing in exopolitics, or the political implications surrounding an extraterrestrial presence on Earth. Webre says teleportation and time travel have been around for 40 years, but are hoarded by the Defense Department instead of being used to transfer goods and services.
