    It was the best of times and the worst of times for Hollywood before the war. The box office was booming, and the studios’ control of talent and distribution was as airtight as could be hoped. But the industry’s relationship with Washington was decidedly uneasy - hearings and investigations into allegations of corruption and racketeering were multiplying, and hanging in the air was the insinuation that the business was too foreign, too Jewish, too "un-American" in its values and causes. Could an industry this powerful in shaping America’s mind-set really be left in the hands of this crew?

    Eric Rey pulls a plastic container half full of cooked rice out of his briefcase. The fat, brown grains look like normal rice. They smell like normal rice. When I gingerly raise a few grains to my lips, they even taste like normal rice: soft, chewy and a little bland. I have to stop myself from reaching for a bottle of soy sauce here in the kitchen of Arcadia Biosciences’ offices in Seattle - Rey is the chief executive of the biotechnology company - to add a little salt.

    The antennas belong to the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), a former U.S. military facility near the hamlet of Gakona. The array will beam 2.1 megawatts of radio energy into the ionosphere—the region that starts at 100 kilometers above the ground, where solar photons and charged particles crash into Earth’s atmosphere. There the radio signals will excite electrons and turn them into waves of relatively hot ionized gas, or plasma, in a narrow slice of sky.
