1. Aries, Latin for Ram, is the name of an astronomical constellation, and of one of the twelve astrology signs.
2. The Aries Project, is a subproject of Pres. Reagan's SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative), also known as the Star Wars Program. It consists of building an electro-magnetic pulse generator (or Van de Graaf generator) as a weapon. Officially the weapon is designed as a protection against incoming missiles. In reality, it is supposed to be a weapon against "IAV's" (identified aerial vehicles) or "IAC's" (identified alien craft).
M.W. Cooper mentions a similar project but calls it the "Joshua project."
Yet another source calls it the Zeus Project.
