The Oranur Experiment

Bound photocopy $ 26.95

This 159-page publication first appeared as the entire October 1951 issue of the Orgone Energy Bulletin. In it, Reich documents his 1950-1951 laboratory experiments at Orgonon to test the effects of concentrated orgone energy on nuclear energy. Reich's principal objective was the "investigation of possible anti-nuclear radiation effects in the atmospheric orgone energy."

The most critical of these experiments took place in January 1951, when Reich placed a one-milligram needle of radium (procured from the Canadian Radium and Uranium Corporation in New York City) into a small one-layer orgone accumulator that was placed into a 20-layer orgone accumulator that was located inside the metal-lined Orgone Room in the Student Laboratory. The unexpected results of this experiment would be a major leap forward in Reich's orgone energy research.

The first half of this report comprises Reich's documentation of his earlier laboratory and field work leading up to the Oranur Experiment.
