A US military site which conspiracy theorists say can control minds, change weather and turn off satellites, is to be shut down.
The government facility High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) has been blamed for some of the biggest natural disasters in recent history.
Conspiracy theorists point to a patent filed by a key scientist on the project, Bernard Eastlund, shortly before his death. It suggests that weather modification may be possible using technology like HAARP.
Such theories have sparked environmental concern and led to hearings in the European Parliament.
But experts, who insist the site is only used to study the atmosphere, say it is no longer needed by the country and will close in mid-June.
Work began on HAARP in 1993. It cost more than $280million (£166million) to build and is spread across 30 acres.
HAARP’s website was shut down in 2013.
