Physicists from the US have solved the mystery of the “ultrasonic weapons” Cuba

MOSCOW, 2 Mar — RIA Novosti. The mysterious “ultrasonic weapons”, on which he complained to the U.S. Embassy staff in Cuba, does not exist in reality — it was a byproduct of several harmless bugs, say scientists from the US and China.

“Even if ultrasound really stunned Embassy employees and damaged their brains, then its source was not the “ultrasonic weapons”, and cross-distortion, resulting from the interaction of two ultrasonic signals, and spawned a lot of unpleasant noise. In other words, no one set goals to harm diplomats — it all happened randomly,” write the authors.


In August last year, broke another spy international scandal — the staff of the U.S. Embassy in Cuba has accused the island authorities that they had been hidden “ultrasonic attack” with some new forms of weapons. These attacks, as they write the American media, started in December 2016 and continued until the beginning of September 2017, depriving the ear and causing serious health problems at least 24 diplomats.

As reported themselves victims of this “attack”, they constantly heard a very loud, sharp sounds, like the clank and rattle of the friction of metal structures, causing them a very sharp pain when he was in certain points or at home, or inside the Embassy.During the download an error has occurred.

Life in such a situation has deprived many of them of the hearing, and some diplomats complained of constant nausea and an inability to remember certain words and information.

These statements immediately caused a lot of criticism among security officers and scientists — the human ear can not hear the ultrasound, and the ultrasonic waves themselves are not, in principle, can cause the brain damage which later told doctors who examined the victims of the “attack”.

As expressed then, a physicist from MIT, this could happen only if diplomats dived head first into the pool, whose walls were covered with powerful ultrasound transducers. However, the US authorities did not abandon such theories and promised to deal with the situation and punish the guilty, starting the investigation, the main suspects in which immediately became Russia, and Cuba.
