Project Rainbow which is also known as The Philadelphia Project was an experiment that intended to use Einstein’s Unified Field Theory, a study in electromagnetism, which if successful would enable the US Navy to cloak navel vessels from proximity mines and enemy sonar by bending the magnetic waves that surround the ships’ hull. According to eye witnesses something went horribly wrong.

Upon the ships reappearance, the mortified scientists raced aboard the ship only to find the crew in extreme disarray.
