Tales from the Loop
Most of the the Loop might have reached its highest level of notoriety in Sweden, but it got its start as a top-secret military project in the USA. Specifically, it began in Boulder City,Nevada, a sleepy little town just a half-hour’s drive southeast of Las Vegas, overlooking Lake Mead. While it started out in the early days of the Cold War in the 1950s, the US Loop peaked in the heady years of the 1980s.
The Loop was originally meant to investigate the possibility of instantaneous teleportation between two points on the planet. It was formed under the auspices of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which was known simply as ARPA at the time. President Dwight D. Eisenhower himself ordered the creation of the Department of Advanced Research into Teleportation (DART), hoping to employ the fruits of its labors as a means of moving troops around the globe at a moment’s notice.

– was never fulfilled, and the city seems to have suffered
