A Top Secret, Cold War Operation Known as “Sunshine.” But, There Was No Sun About It

When it comes to what happened at Roswell, New Mexico in the summer of 1947, there are numerous theories: a UFO crash, a weather balloon, a Mogul balloon designed to detect for early Soviet atomic detonations in the atmosphere, a time-machine, a bizarre ruse using altered children to make them look like aliens, and…well…the story goes on. In my two books on Roswell I suggested that what really happened was a series of New Mexico-based experiments designed to further understand high-altitude effects on the human body. And that some of the experiments involved physically handicapped people. Although a lot of people have looked away from my words, the fact is there was an extremely similar affair that involved terrible operations on people in the latter part of the 1940s and through the Cold War. With that said, let’s have a look at it. As the 1940s gave way to a new decade, controversial research undertaken on human beings continued. Not for medical reasons, but for purposes that were of benefit to the military. And it continued undercover of a massive amount of secrecy and security. There were very good reasons for that, as we shall see. One of the things I heard time and again when my Body Snatchers in the Desert book was published in the summer of 2005, was that not only was there no evidence to support the notion that diabolical human-experimentation was the cause of the Roswell controversy; but, in addition, there was no way that government and military agencies, offices and departments would ever even consider engaging in – or sanction – such terrible actions. Really? I have to say that the faith and trust (or, as I prefer to call it, the outright, naive gullibility) that people have in government never ceases to amaze me. For what is perhaps the most shocking example of the way in which human beings were indeed utilized for radiation-related experiments at the height of the Cold War, we have to turn our attention to something called Project Sunshine. There was nothing bright and sunny about this program, however.
