I've checked out Blossom Point several times, even getting a tour of the facility. Nothing very interesting there. Their research is indeed focused on EMP and high powered microwave weapons operating on the implosion principle (it would take a few minutes to explain, but they work sort of like a Pu nuke- explosives compress a magnetic field to increase it's strength) and there has been some speculation that an experiment at Blossom Point resulted in the crash of a VH-60 Blackhawk of Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1 - as in "Marine One") a while back. I didn't see anyhting that would support that theory, and there was definitely nothing extraordinary at the facility. ======================================================================== From: "A.J.

Blossom Point appears to have a Website at http://c4i-www.nrl.navy.mil/sites/bp.html Interestingly, no address is listed, though the mission statement does look kinda skunky. ======================================================================== Date: Sun, 19 Jan 1997 20:38:47 -0600 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Dennis Dezendorf) Subject: Blossom Point Proving Grounds. Regarding the helicopter crash, of course the craft hit the ground. The question is: Were the crew alive or dead at impact? Was the craft in one piece or hundreds at impact? Even if the helicopter was blown out of the sky, it eventually hit the ground. In formal report writing, it's not so much what you say as how you say it. A good report writer can turn the most commonplace incident into a minefield of bureaucratic fog. A really good report writer can take a really weird incident and make it look completely commonplace. It's all in how you write it up.
