NASA’s historical use of the term “chemical trail”:
The familiar aviation term “contrail” is a contraction of the two words “condensation” and “trail”.
Similarly, a “chemtrail” is a logical application of the contraction rule where two similar words, “chemical” and “trail” are spliced together as a single recognizable word.
The term “chemical trail” became part of the NASA lexicon when published in the document “Chemical Aspects of Upper Atmosphere Research”. Excerpt below:
“Langley research center released tetramethyl-lead vapor trails in lower heterosphere”
“Thus, in the search for a satisfactory chemiluminescent agent, the Langley Research Center released tetramethyl-lead vapor trails in the lower heterosphere during two night-bime (early morning) experiments on January 22, 1964. In each experiment about 22 Ibs of liquid Pb(CH 3) were carried aloft by the type of rocket shown in figure 6. The visible chemical trail extended from an altitude of about 89 km. to 113 km…”

Contrary to rumors of “conspiracy theory”, the Department of Defense invented and published the term, “Chemtrails” in 1990 as the title to a chemistry course manual for new pilots attending the esteemed US Air Force Academy. With the manual originally paid for by the American taxpayer, the term “chemtrails” continues to be used to describe unusual jet emissions that may, or may not be normal contrails.
The term “Chemtrails”, and its implied meaning was eventually adopted by civilian observers to describe unusual military jets and later, commercial aircraft contrail emissions.
In etymological terms, the origin of a word is very important. Regardless the intended definition, history clearly shows the term “Chemtrails” originated at the US Department of Defense as the title for a Chemistry manual used at the Air Force Academy cadet training program in the early 1990’s. Two editions of the “Chemtrails” manual are known to exist – A 200 page version for the 1990 Fall class and a 232 page version for the 1991 class. The course title “chemtrails” was so popular as to be adopted by the DoD for at least two academic years (1990-1991).
Definition – A: The Oxford Dictionary provides an accurate description of “chemtrails” even if they are unaware that the DoD is the “inventor” and original publisher of the word, “chemtrails”.
a visible trail left in the sky by an aircraft and believed by some to consist of chemical or biological agents released as part of a covert operation.
Origin: 1990s: blend of chemical and trail, on the pattern of contrail (Oxford Dictionary)
Definition – B: Defined as an “exotic weapon” in HR 2977, Space Preservation Act of 2001. (Gov. Doc – PDF)
Origin: Department of Defense title to a chemistry manual as required study for future pilots enrolled at the US Air Force Academy.
A Microfilm copy of “Chemtrails” is available through the Inter Library Loan system (ILL). Exhibts and chain of custody is included below.
In 2001, US Rep., Dennis Kucinich introduced HR 2977 “Space Preservation Act of 2001”. The text of the Bill defines Chemtrails as an exotic weapon.
About the Chemtrails Manual Cover
- The Air Force Academy Chemtrails manual cover shows a flame from a Bunsen burner that appears to be producing two “trails”.
- The title of the manual “Chemtrails” is printed between the two “trails”.
- Considering the intentional graphic depicting “trails” it’s possible the Bunsen burner represents a jet engine producing “chemically” induced, persistent contrails.
- A Bunsen burner is a common piece of laboratory equipment that produces a single open gas flame which is used for heating, sterilization, and combustion.
- A test tube filled with a liquid is emptying contents into a flask.
- The remaining graphic appears to be a chemical representation for “methane” (CH4). Since Natural gas contains mostly “methane” it’s possible this symbol alludes to the fuel providing the flame to the Bunsen burner. (Natural Gas)
Method: An inter-library loan initiated by the Alachua County main library yielded a microfilm copy of the 1990 Chemistry 131 Manual used in training by the US Air force Academy. The lending institution was the William T. Young Library at the University of Kentucky as shown in the label below.
The microfilm was in acceptable condition, however the 1990 Chemtrails manual was scanned in 1992 under less than optimum conditions from a well-used original.
The Alachua County Library equipment was used to scan each of the 200 pages to digital *.TIF files. Photoshop was used to optimize each image to the smallest file size that would permit adequate resolution for on-line viewing. Each image was imported to a Microsoft Word page where the complete manual was saved to a 30 MB PDF file. (Portable Document File).
NOTE: A second edition of Chemtrails (232 pages) was published for a subsequent Fall class of Air Force cadets. (Circa 1992)
Disclaimer: The purpose of this post is to establish the term “chemtrails” was invented by the DoD and US Air Force Academy.
However compelling, we resist claiming with absolute certainty that the title is directly linked to the obvious aerosol geoengineering aka “chemtrails” operation in increased evidence since the mid-1990’s. The content, however suggests possible methods for manipulation of the earth’s atmospheric chemistry and could be construed as a course requirement for pilots who would be engaged in deploying chemicals (chemtrails) into the atmosphere as an “exotic weapon”, as described in HR-2977 – aka “The Space preservation Act of 2001”.
A significant clue to the future US military agenda as perceived in 1990 is revealed in the chapter on global oil reserves beginning on pg. 64 titled: “Data From Analysis of Present And Future Energy Resources”.
