Project Gamma is a collaboration between the FGK and the Ancient Astronaut Society (AAS).

By using a specifically designed long-term measuring device built exclusively by Sascha Jakoblew, it is possible to measure radio-active gamma rays, without the need of any personal supervision, for several month.
Inside the measuring device a highly efficient and sensitive Geiger counter is used to detect the gamma-quanta falling in.
The device counts these gamma-quanta over periods of 20 seconds and digitally stores the measured value into an EPROM memorychip which can be read by a computer that also allows evaluation the data at a later date.

The measuring device can be set up for long term measurements at any given location.
Within the scope of the FGK-research its main use will be the measureing of radio-activity in crop formations. Here it is possible to keep the development of the natural (or possibly crop circle phenomenon-affected) gamma activity under surveillance. In the past different groups reported on anomalous measurements of radio-activity but in all of those cases only a short period of time was involved and the device used was less sensitive. Therefore it can't be excluded that only statistical variations were involved.
Much more reliable results are now expected.

Within the scope of the research of the AAS the main use of the device will be measurements at prehistoric places such as stone circles.
Earlier investigations in stone circles have shown anomalous measurements of radio-activity there, too. These can be verified by the more sensitive long-term measurements.

The results of the research carried out by the FGK will be published in the "FGK-Report" (the quarterly journal of the FGK) and presented at the meetings of the FGK.
The results of the research carried out for the AAS will be published by the AAS itself.
