I hadn't even heard of the "Stargate Project" until you posted it, Transilvanian. Having done an internet search on it, it looks like it was a dud, perhaps the result of the DOD not being prepared to take any chances on it, so that they felt obliged to do something for years. Why am I not surprised?
The Stargate Project[1] was the umbrella code name of one of several sub-projects established by the U.S. Federal Government to investigate claims of psychic phenomena with potential military and domestic applications, particularly "remote viewing": the purported ability to psychically "see" events, sites, or information from a great distance.[2] These projects were active from the 1970s through 1995, and followed up early psychic research done at The Stanford Research Institute (SRI), Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), The American Society for Psychical Research, and other psychical research labs.[3]

IMO, the only decent thing to come out of that project was some entertaining Sci-Fi TV programs.
