ROJECT KRONOS AND DIE GLOCKE Die Glocke Associated with the projects related to Raumflug was the 'Kronos Project' and 'Die Glocke'. The project had gone under two code names: "Laternenträger" (lantern carrier) and "Chronos", and always involved "Die Glocke". Kronos is the Greek god of Time - which gives rise to the speculation that the project and die Glocke was designed to test the possibilities of distorting space and time - and it has been suggested that a concave mirror on top of the device provided the ability to see "images from the past" during its operation. Die Glocke represented the very pinnacle of SS General’s Hans Kammler's occult and super-secret SS "wonder weapons" empire. The Bell was reportedly an object, approximately 9 ft. in diameter and 12-15 ft. tall. The device was made out of a hard, heavy metal (depleted uranium?) and filled with a mercury like substance, violet in color. It looked like a "Bell", hence its codename to the Germans, die Glocke. The device was installed deep down in the earth in Wenceslas Mine. It was comprised of two counter-rotating cylinders, rotating a purplish liquid-metallic looking substance code-named "Xerum 525" by the Germans, at high speeds; "Xerum 525" was apparently highly radioactive, being purple in color, and housed in cylinders with lead lining 3 cm (12 in.) thick; Other substances known to have been involved in the testing were thorium and beryllium peroxides code named "Leichtmetall". Die Glocke The Bell apparently required high amounts of electrical power in its operation, and a local dam was used to generate electrical power to power up the Lanternholder [Laternenträger]. The test chamber was 30 meters square and lined with ceramic tiles. The floors and walls were covered with heavy black rubber mats. The test room and all electrical equipment but the Bell were disposed of after every few tests. Apparently, they became contaminated in some fashion and were disposed of in a furnace. The housing of this device in an underground chamber lined with ceramic brick and rubber mats suggests that it gave off extremely strong electro-magnetic or electro-static field effects as well as high heat when in operation. The reporting of metallic tastes in the mouths of what few surviving personnel there are suggests this. The quick decay without apparent putrefaction of organic material within its field suggests effects that some would associate with scalar waves. But what was the mysterious "Xerum 525"?
