“The purpose of The Integratron is to recharge energy into living cell structure, to bring about longer life with youthful energy.”
— George Van Tassel
The Integratron is in Landers, California, 20 miles North of Joshua Tree National Park. Its creator, George Van Tassel (1920-1978), an author, inventor and controversial UFO advocate. George was an aeronautical engineer who worked for Lockheed, Douglas Aircraft, and as a test pilot for Howard Hughes at Hughes Aviation. George claimed the Integratron structure was based on the design of Moses’ Tabernacle, the writings of Nikola Tesla, and telepathic directions he received from extraterrestrials.
George spent 18 years building the Integratron, and it’s truly a one-of-a-kind structure. Standing 38 feet high with a 55-foot diameter and an all-wood dome, it was built without a single piece of metal. Not one nail, screw, bolt, or anything metal was used. The Integratron was designed to be an electrostatic generator, intended for rejuvenation and time travel.
Building the Integratron in Landers was essential… It stands on an intersection of powerful geomagnetic forces that, when focused by the unique geometry of the building, reportedly concentrate and amplify the earth’s magnetic field. Interestingly enough, magnetometers read a significant spike in the earth’s magnetic field when placed in the center of the Integratron.
The Integratron is privately owned by three sisters who have been restoring and maintaining the structure for two and a half decades. They share it with people interested in its potential and have opened it to the public while its restoration continues.
