Back in 1983, science fiction writer Isaac Asimov was asked to predict how the world would look in 2019.

He wrote his thoughts down for an article in the Toronto Star newspaper.

Being the man who wrote the three laws of robotics it certainly makes sense that he foresaw the rise of computers and robots.

He stated that the complexity of society would make them “impossible to do without”, disrupting work and penetrating the home.

Asimov also predicted that robotics would revolutionize the way we work, with automation stealing clerical and factory jobs, forcing people to reconsider new careers or even living “a life rich in leisure.”

In the world of education, he predicted that children would no longer need teachers, other than to “inspire curiosity”; learning everything they needed to know from computers at home.

While that hasn’t totally come to pass there are online colleges and even online stay at homeschooling that is becoming popular for parents that want to protect their children from bullying and school shootings.

“In 30 years time machines will know what each student knows and what he or she needs to learn next. There is no way that humans can equal that educational power,” he said.

What are most interesting were his predictions about space and space travel.

He foresaw that by 2019 humans would have mining factories and a solar power station on the moon, with strides towards building the first space settlement well under way.

The International Space Station is indeed as a permanent structure circling the Earth, but the moon has not been colonized.

For many years there have been lofty goals set for space travel. The George W. Bush Administration pushed for manned moon missions by 2018 and a small station or new colony by 2021 and routine Mars missions from there.

The Obama administration decided to take money from space exploration and use it to combat global warming. This put the space program on hold.

In 2017, the White House announced plans to go back to the Moon and build permanent structures there for exploration and experimentation.

It appears that president Trump was also concerned about so-called space threats and wanted to create another branch of the military called “The Space Force.”

In 2018, the space program often seemed stuck in low gear, with delays to NASA’s Webb Space Telescope, slips in the schedule for new commercial astronaut taxis, and yet another re-shuffling of plans for human spaceflight. At times it felt like all talk and PowerPoint slides.

Space entrepreneur Elon Musk hopes to offer the first private passenger flight around the Moon in 2023, however, it is rumored that plans are speeding up and that by April of 2019, we may see some definite progress in space tourism.

So far, the moon and Mars ambitions have been downplayed – and now we are exploring asteroids and dangling the cosmic carrot in front of scientists looking for biosignatures and technosignatures in space.

As the ball was dropping in Times Square for the New Year’s celebration, a record-setting space mission 4 billion miles away was taking place – it was the first look at an object on the edge of our solar system called Ultima Thule.

I was very surprised that the snowman looking asteroid was called Ultima Thule – it reminded me of the Thule society that of course was established by the Nazis.

Thule, according to the Nazi mythology, is the place that was the original origin of the “Aryan race.”

It is also an ancient term to identify a forbidden zone where the Dragons dwell.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX, plans to test-launch its new Crew Dragon spaceship, sending it into orbit from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The vehicle was designed and built for NASA to help replace the agency’s space shuttle fleet, which was retired in 2011. The eventual goal is to get astronauts to and from the International Space Station—this way we won’t have to rely on Russia to send them.

Dragons in space and the rocky borders where the Dragons dwell strike an apocalyptic sign that may or may not be coincidental.

The idea struck me about the so-called Dragon in the skies from the apocalypse that fights the angels in a war in heaven—it just somehow struck me as odd that a Nazi terminology is so easily used to describe this rock and the connections to the forbidden zones outside the borders where the Dragons await.

There is actually a death metal symphonic band called Bal Sogoth that has a song called “Starfire Burning upon the Ice Veiled Throne of Ultima Thule.”

The lyrics leave nothing to the imagination about a war that starts from a sign in the heaven’s; namely, the sign of Ultima Thule.

“ Spears agleam in the dying sun,
The blood is spilled, the battle’s won,
From the icy throne of God-King shall rule,
When nine stars kiss the moon o’er Ultima Thule.”

Like some Norse nightmare, the song is more or less a story set to symphony about the blood that falls from the spears in the north and star lords that descend upon the planet during the sign of the Blood Moon.

It is amazing and chilling.

“Swathed in moon-frosts, in icy winds our blazon flying,
Iron gleaming ‘neath the stars, black skies ablaze with astral fire,
White wolves (like silent spirits) haunt us, ever northwards, the ice-gem leads us, glimmering, Powerful spells entwine the shrine of legendary, mighty gates of frozen splendour looming, When the moon and stars shine as one upon the snows, the ancient ice-gate opens, the prophecy is fulfilled!”

It all sounds like Ragnaroc fulfilled in the winter of the Red Moon as the nine stars kiss Ultima Thule.

On January 21st, 2019, the moon begins to emerge from the Earth’s shadow creating lunar eclipse, the Super Moon will turn to blood – this will be called the Wolf Moon.

Could this all be some strange coincidence that tells us that a war above us will happen in 2019?

In the mountains of Colorado the government has been secretly training men to fight what are called “Space Aggressors” in simulated attacks.

The 26th and 527th Space Aggressor Squadrons are headquartered in a two-story warehouse at Colorado’s Schriever Air Force Base, stocked with advanced radio and satellite equipment and nicknamed “the barn.” Behind the building, antenna dishes trace the sky.

While attacks by the Space Aggressors are simulated, senior US military and intelligence officials warn the threat in space is very real.

America relies heavily on space assets to project force around the globe, from launching missiles to directing warships across the seas. Indeed, the Global Positioning System, or GPS, is actually a group of 31 high-orbiting satellites owned by the US government and operated by the US Air Force.

Some worry that disrupting America’s vast network of satellites and ground-based systems could send US forces back to an antiquated era of targeting, communications, and navigation systems, deeply undercutting battlefield superiority.

Last year, Vice Admiral Charles Richard, Deputy Commander of U.S. Strategic Command, known as Stratcom, told a conference in Washington DC that there is most definitely a threat in space that we will eventually have to confront.

Now, of course, these threats can be anything from killer satellites to jamming mechanisms, however, since the Pentagon’s UFO Threat Assessment program was revealed in the New York Times, Space Aggression takes on a whole new meaning for 2019.

Vice Admiral Richard pointed to press reports that “China is developing an arsenal of lasers, electromagnetic rail guns, and high-powered microwave weapons to neutralize America’s intelligence, communications, and navigations satellites.”

Stratcom Commander General John Hyten told a Senate committee hearing that in addition to bolstering defenses, “we have to build an offensive capability to challenge their capabilities in space as well.”

Everything that points to a war in heaven is in definite violation of a 1967 treaty where countries agreed there would be no wars fought over space terrain or areas in space.

The 21st-century version of the “Space Race” is a commercial satellite race – and it is rumored that the satellites can do double duty as weapons if needed.

The National Space Council — a Cold War-era space oversight committee relaunched last June after being disbanded and relaunched several times announced a series of measures designed to make it easier for private companies, such as SpaceX or Blue Origin, to launch satellites into space. Basically, by reducing regulations, the goal is to get as many satellites up in the air as possible.

Per the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, governments aren’t allowed to claim territories in outer space, such as the moon or an asteroid, on behalf of their own countries. However, that doesn’t mean businesses can’t do it. That means the way to promote national dominance in space is to promote space businesses, which in this case, includes commercial satellites.

Over the next several years, we may see the emergence of asteroid mining technology which will be an attractive venture for space companies, but one that could produce debris that threatens the safety of people and technology in space. If asteroid mining becomes a reality under these National Space Council policies, these missions could more likely to be approved as missions than they were before.

There are other risks involved with a large number of satellites. Too many radio-emitting satellites can also interfere with one another’s signals, and too many satellites in one area greatly increase the risk of collision. It’s worth noting that SpaceX hopes to launch over 11,000 satellites to provide global broadband internet.

Space dominance is now a crucial endeavor for 2019.

Countries like China are taking space dominance seriously.

Today was supposed to be the touchdown of China’s Chang’e-4 lunar Lander. It is supposed to make a soft landing on the far side of the moon.

The lander and its small companion rover are nearly identical copies of the Chang’e-3 spacecraft that touched down on the near side in December 2013.

Sometime in early spring, India hopes to become just the fourth nation (after the Soviet Union, the United States and China) to land a spacecraft on the moon. Chandrayaan-2 is scheduled for a January 30/31 launch, although that date may well slip. India placed the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft in orbit around the moon 10 years ago and followed with a Mars orbiter in 2014.

Chandrayaan-2 will be a significant achievement for the nation’s space program.

Space dominance is important because control from above is crucial in any and all conflicts on earth. It is also crucial for the internet of things and the hook upon Smart cities in the 5G universe.

Again we can go back to what Isaac Asimov predicted about 2019 – all about space and the rise of the robots.

Asimov predicted that in the next 30 years, the global economy will completely reshape into a space and computer driven economy — this would definitely foil the attempts of the United Nations to force a green economy on the world.

It would be yet another step to world order, however, with a war in space that would keep those on earth always hanging in the balance.

Advanced weapons systems and autonomous killing machines would be controlled from the cloud –and other operations would have to be conducted from bases in space.

Today’s advancements in AI draw a parallel theme to Skynet, the Artificial Intelligence software in Terminator Genisys that leads to Judgement Day.

Skynet type systems would be monitoring any and all threats from space including “Space Agressors” that are secretly fought in game simulations by the military.

This new space race is about advanced threat assessment of possible extraterrestrial contact, and of course strategic positions that can put us ahead of other countries with regard to space defense and warfare.

Space is and has always been seen as a “strategic area,” which directly impacts the national security and defense of a country. With United States trying to enhance its capabilities, other states are observing these events very seriously, especially those with their own space programs.

Right now, one can’t say definitively whether this decision by U.S. government that is leading to the reoccurrence of a space race like in the 1960s.

We are now looking at new threats from countries like Russia and China and unexpected discoveries that can and will include advanced extraterrestrial intelligence.

The investigation of the threat of UFOs by the defense department is certainly an indication that a secret space program exists or that more funding needs to be used to develop a network of satellites and advanced artificial intelligence that combs the galaxy for planets that have the potential of yielding alien life.

I would surmise that this means discoveries of other planets and aliens may be left up to advanced Artificial Intelligence in the future and that vast networks of satellites that employ this Artificial intelligence will be sent to orbit that earth-like AI watchdogs or guardians around the Space perimeter.

Some forty years ago this was all a conspiracy theory – or some crank pseudoscience but now we see the world ready to fight its dragons in heaven.

In the good book, we read of the revelations of Michael and the archangels fighting the great dragon in heaven.

“Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”

Some say that the interpretation should be left to many examples of earthly revolutions and revolts.

But the name associations of ancient mythologies should send a signal that NASA has not abandoned their medieval wordplay to describe what they do.

Arms control advocates say it is clearly the beginning of a “weaponization of space” precursor to a precision global strike capability and a full spectrum surveillance apparatus that would allow the US to collect data for months at a time over anywhere it chooses and then unleash firepower without warning anywhere in the world including here at home if necessary.

The truth about space affairs should appear to have its successes in 2019 but beyond all of the hype of the good comes the nefarious moves to keep us under the eye of the watchers. It remains explicit US policy to control near space as part of the doctrine of “full spectrum dominance” and, further, to be able to deny access to space to all other nations.
