5 TERRIFYING US Government Projects | Top 5 Countdown
Many secret projects have been uncovered since The World War II but there are still plenty of them which are still ongoing and will be until the end of humanity!

Due to major health problems our videos suffered major delays. We are sorry for delaying our videos for such a long time. We promise that we will be posting new videos every week. We hope that you enjoy our new video!

★Countdown subjects:
5) Project 112
Project 112 was done at the Deseret Test Center in Utah in a series of tests from 1962–1973.
Nearly 6,000 people, both military personnel and Department of Defense civilian staff, were exposed to the tests, with and without knowledge.
When information about the tests was released, it was thought that the agents released were harmless. However, there’s a long list of biological agents that the test subjects were exposed to, including Coxiella burnetii (Q fever) and staphylococcal enterotoxin B (which causes food poisoning)…….

4) Project ARTICHOKE
Even the NSA’s archives and security research staff only have bits and pieces of what’s been called Project ARTICHOKE which involved experiments using so-called “special interrogation techniques”.
It’s been uncovered that experiments with hypnosis were conducted through the 1950s, and at least six volunteers were found to have been subjected to experiments on the psychological impact of total isolation.
Buried in the memos is a bizarre mention of using assassins who are hypnotized into killing……

3) Operation Plumbbob
Between May 28 and October 7, 1957, military personnel were exposed to 29 nuclear tests in order to gauge their response after being near to and witnessing a detonation.
In order to make sure that military personnel could still function after the shock of the blast, Operation Plumbbob was performed on a group of men based in Fort Bragg, who were designated as “Task Force Big Bang.”
The men would watch the nuclear explosion and then disassemble and reassemble their rifles. After that, they would run a course through a minefield and infiltration course (including obstacles like barriers, walls, and foxholes), and their results would be compared to how they did without the nuclear factor…….

2) Operation Big Itch
Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) became the location of the Biological Warfare Assessment Laboratories in 1954. With that title came the necessity of figuring out whether or not insects were viable for use as delivery systems for various types of nasty diseases.
Operation Big Itch dropped countless fleas on the Utah desert. Cages of guinea pigs were set up on the ground to gauge how successful the drop was, as there were concerns about whether or not the fleas would survive and how much they would spread if they made it to the ground.
The fleas were sealed in containers that were designed to rupture with the firing of a CO2 cartridge at an altitude of 300–600 meters (1,000–2,000 ft)……..

1) Project Thor (Rods From God)
Project Thor was never put into practice, but if it had been, the results might have been absolutely terrifying.
In the 1950s, scientist Jerry Pournelle was looking at the idea of kinetic bombardment, which means launching missiles from space with no explosives and simply letting the power of speed and gravity do the work.
The military was looking at ways to make satellites into incredibly deadly weapons.
The basics of the idea involve two satellites working together. One is armed with 6-meter-long (20 ft) tungsten rods, no more than 0.3 meters (1 ft) in diameter. The second satellite does all of the communication and targeting. After a rod is dropped, it’s estimated that it would be traveling at 11,000 meters per second (36,000 ft/s) when it finally hits the ground.
Project Thor (or Rods from God) never made it off the drawing board, thanks in no small part to the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, which made space-based weapons off-limits.
