When I first heard that the shuttle program was going to be mothballed and that money dried up for the Constellation project I was a little confused because of some information that I was digging through back in 2008. During the honeymoon of Barack Obama and the American people, Obama was meeting with the Pentagon, and NASA. These meeting s were leaked into the conspiracy blogs as possible meetings about the case for possible Extra-terrestrial attack and the movement of near earth objects. The secret so it seemed was a focus on solar storms and Asteroids leading to speculation about doomsday asteroids and their impact on the earth.
Obama was claiming that there was a rush to go into space and to surpass China with our prowess in space. He urged the collaboration between the defense department and NASA to use Military rocketry and weaponry to launch into space. It was said to be cheaper and more expedient.
At the time the economy was bottoming out and there was still money being funneled into the space to the tune of $17 billion dollars per year. In order to save face with the American people economically , it seems that Obama decided not to press forward into the final frontier as the last Shuttle mission ended its voyage July 21st, 2011.
However there have been scores of stories that are indicating that NASA has been conducting some secret space missions which now opens up the discussion as to whether or not there is something secret going on and that some of the debt we have incurred is all from black budget operations and new space missions where we are hearing about sun storms, possibilities of alien life, and weapons being tested for future wars.
The idea of a secret space program has always been the big secret in government and there has always been a theory that NASA has always been a Public relations machine on the surface, and a secret military operation where the space race continues with secret manned missions to the moon, mars and beyond.
It would only stand to reason that these types of activities would be going on behind the scenes as the space program in the United States was established by Nazi scientists pipelined into the country in order to create a cosmic battleground, to defend us against enemies, both foreign and some say extraterrestrial.
As early as 1943 there were Germans that began to realize that the writing was on the wall. Hitler’s right hand man Martin Bormann realized that the Nazi’s could not possibly win the war. With the millions dead it was already assumed that there would be German’s rounded up and tried for war crimes.
It is a matter of record that Nazi scientists and intelligence personnel were welcomed into the United States and Russia. We have been told that these Nazis were not REAL Nazis because they chose to come work for us. Truth is they were real Nazis and they had a plan in place to destroy the world through a gradual scorched earth policy that seems to be continuing today.
The Odessa plan included the safe passage to hardcore Nazis in South and Central America, Mexico and the Middle East, and for transporting Nazi gold, mostly looted treasure from the Reich bank. The third tentacle was a far–reaching one and is responsible for the Cold War and placing Russia and the United States in position of creating Hitler’s vision of a Scorched earth Policy.
Hitler’s spy master Reinhard Gehlen developed the “Org” which consisted of hardcore Nazi spooks surrendering to the allies and then giving them information that would be the seeds of paranoia needed to create the Cold War. Remember, The United States saw the advantage of having Nazis working with the CIA in order to keep the momentum going of the anticommunist crusades.
The Org played a role in the creation of the “missile gap,” providing CIA with reports on Soviet missile developments supposedly based on contacts with German scientists captured by the Russians at the end of the war.
Germans that worked with the Russian scientists also provided information and in the chill of the cold war, a space race developed.
Stephen King in his short Story “Danse Macabre” related that when he was a child of the 1950’s he remembered that while he was attending a movie the screen suddenly went dark. The manager of the theater walked to the front of the auditorium. With an ashen face and tears in his eyes he told the crowd that the Soviet Union had just launched Sputnik.
The dread of this announcement would not even be felt today, however back then it was devastating because there were many people who knew what this meant. It meant that the Russians now had the power to not only put satellites into space, but perhaps nuclear weapons would be next.
It was a sign back then that the world was being undone, unraveling like thread around a spool. The paranoia at the time was fertile ground for horrific tales of aliens, and nuclear annihilation from space. Now the ante has been raised and while the aliens still haunt us with the stories of Roswell and the Betty and Barney Hill abduction, the thought of an outer space we can’t control and a battle in space that will most likely destroy the earth is something that seems to be inevitable.
Another thing that can be more frightening is the fact that we do not know what is above us. We do not know what weapons are there, or what space stations observe us, and what unnatural things are observing us from platforms that have been there for decades.
We attempted to send up a satellite with the CARONA program. It took 12 failures before it went up in the 1960’s. It was a spy satellite that no one knew about.
In another response to the Sputnik fears The US Air Force in co-operation with ex-Nazi scientists developed a top-secret plan to detonate a nuclear bomb on the Moon as a display of military might during the Cold War.
The project was called A-119. The explosion was to be conducted on the Far
side of the Moon. The bomb was planned to be detonated on the edge of the Moon, the
mushroom cloud would be illuminated by the Sun. The bomb was supposed to be at
least as large as the one used on Hiroshima at the end of World War II.
The main aim of the proposed detonation was a PR exercise and a show of one-
upmanship to the Soviet Union. The Air Force wanted a mushroom cloud so large it
would be visible on Earth. The US was lagging behind in the space race and they were
convinced that dropping an atomic bomb on the Moon would send a message of Military
might to the Communists.
No one really knows why the project was scrapped; however, it paved the way for a
program to be devised called Project Thor, another secret proposal that would turn
space into a militarized battle ground.
Project Thor was named after the hammer-wielding Norse god who could rain metal
death down as he pleased. Project Thor is basically summed up as ‘an orbiting
tungsten telephone pole with small fins and a computer in the back for guidance. Once
given the launch command, a satellite would drop the ‘pole,’ which would then speed
up until going at orbital velocity, around 10 miles a second. At this speed, when it hit
a ground based target, it would have the explosive equivalent of a small-yield nuclear
weapon, and would also have great penetrating power because of its long, thin profile.
This program was the first example of what we now call “kinetic bombardment,” using
dense objects travelling at very high speeds to eliminate targets without the need of
explosives, no need for nuclear bombs. The force would be similar on a smaller scale
to that of a comet or meteor impact on the planet.
Another program along the same lines was initiated in the early 80′s, and was called
either officially or unofficially, ‘Rods from God’. The system worked on the same
principles as the Thor program, but was obviously a lot more accurate, and could
be likened to an Earth-penetrating nuclear weapon, like the Robust Nuclear Earth
Penetrator. The rods, 1 foot thick and 20 feet long, would be able to hit almost any
target on the Earth’s surface, with a minimum time from when the order was given to
when the projectile struck of about 15 minutes.
This method of dropping kinetic weapons from satellites was referred to as “The Rods
from God.” Comprised of tandem satellites, one serving as a communications platform,
the other carrying an indeterminate number of tungsten rods, each up to 20 feet in
length and 1 foot in diameter, they would drop in the same manner as the THOR
project, slamming through space and exploding underground.
It has been theorized that this program still exists and that high above us in space are
platforms that have these rods ready to drop on targets. While having Nuclear weapons
in space was considered a violation of various treaties, these weapons would not be in
violation because they are not nukes.
While there is very little known about the American secret space race, the Russians have had many stories spun about its various weapons platforms, many of them nicknamed Soviet Death Stars. One of the more threatening space platforms using the Energia Boosters was the Polyus.
The Polyus spacecraft, also known as Polus, Skif-DM, or 17F19DM, was a prototype orbital weapons platform designed to defend against anti-satellite weapons with recoilless cannon. It also was capable of deploying nuclear mines in space. It was literally a Laser, space combat station launched in 1985. It is said that the platform was not able to achieve earth orbit and crashed somewhere in the pacific, however there was no attempt by the Reagan or Bush administrations to recover the wreckage.
That is of course the U.S. navy never reported or documented an attempt. The station was painted black in order to give it stealth capabilities. The question is could we see something like that with telescopes? Could this platform be in space now—were we lied to about the programs?
There is also that question of whether or not the Apollo moon missions stopped after Apollo 17. A new movie called Apollo 18 is being released in theaters soon. The movie is pure science fiction but the possibility of three more Apollo missions, 18, 19, and 20 still exists today. The rumors are still not going away.
Apollo 18 really did happen and it was launched on July 15th, 1975 and ended July 24th, 1975. The American crew included three-flight veteran Thomas P. Stafford, rookie Vance Brand, and the last of the original seven Mercury astronauts to make it into orbit, Donald K. “Deke” Slayton, whose heart murmur had previously kept him grounded. Their mission was to link up with the Soyuz 19 crew and it signified a united effort in space exploration.
There is no documented evidence of an Apollo 19, however records indicate that there may have been a secret launch which had a secret US air force crew. As far as Apollo 20 is concerned, the jury is still out on whether or not videos released on the internet show that the Apollo 20 crew were even real or their mission to recover a dead alien named Mona Lisa is not a hoax.
Ironically the first case that Attorney General Eric Holder had to address in his first year was a case involving the revealing of a secret space program in the United States. The case was not even spoken of in the mainstream media because of its potential to raise awareness about a secret space race.
That case involves Gary McKinnon a amateur hacker from London who accidentally found himself standing trial on terrorism charges.
But McKinnon is not a terrorist. He is a very bad hacker who just happened to hack into a series of computers in the Pentagon, NASA, and other sensitive military locations.
McKinnon claimed he was seeking information on UFOs and says he found files dealing with “non-terrestrial officers” and “fleet-to-fleet transfers” involving ships not on any U.S. Navy registry.
This case has embarrassed NASA and the Military because it actually lifts the secrecy on the militarization of space and the reality of weaponized platforms. Missions and space stations that is unknown to the general public.
The case of Gary McKinnon, while virtually sequestered by the mainstream media confirms testimonies of many military and Ex- NASA employees with Top Secret security clearances that claim that both the military and NASA have hidden, destroyed, or altered information , videos or photos that contained images of UFOs, extraterrestrial life forms, and weapons platforms in space.
Recently a number of stories that caught my attention indicating that while the attention our space program has been sullied, it seems that the show must go on with regards to what is out there. The secret space programs are well underway and they are having a hard time remaining so stealth .
Even though we are told that there are no extinction level events heading our way with near earth objects, the European Space Agency is moving forward with plans to send a mission to a threatening asteroid. The Don Quixote mission under study is based on two phases. In the first phase a spacecraft (Sanchez) would rendezvous with an asteroid and go into orbit around it, monitoring it for several months. In the second phase another spacecraft would slam into the asteroid, while the first spacecraft watches, looking for any changes in the asteroid’s trajectory. If it becomes a reality, Don Quixote would launch sometime early in the next decade.
Meanwhile a report that extraterrestrial intelligences may threaten this planet because of greenhouse gasses has also caught the attention of space enthusiasts. In A NASA report called, Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis, the researchers divide alien contacts into three broad categories: beneficial, neutral or harmful.
Beneficial encounters ranged from the mere detection of extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI), for example through the interception of alien broadcasts, to contact with cooperative organisms that help us advance our knowledge and solve global problems such as hunger, poverty and disease.
Another beneficial outcome the authors entertain sees humanity triumph over a more powerful alien aggressor, or even being saved by a second group of ETs. “In these scenarios, humanity benefits not only from the major moral victory of having defeated a daunting rival, but also from the opportunity to reverse-engineer ETI technology,” the authors write.
Other kinds of close encounter may be less rewarding and leave much of human society feeling indifferent towards alien life. The extraterrestrials may be too different from us to communicate with usefully. They might invite humanity to join the “Galactic Club” only for the entry requirements to be too bureaucratic and tedious for humans to bother with.
They could even become a nuisance, like the stranded, prawn-like creatures that are kept in a refugee camp in the 2009 South African movie, District 9, the report explains.
The most unappealing outcomes would arise if extraterrestrials caused harm to humanity, even if by accident. While aliens may arrive to eat, enslave or attack us, the report adds that people might also suffer from being physically crushed or by contracting diseases carried by the visitors. In especially unfortunate incidents, humanity could be wiped out when a more advanced civilization accidentally unleashes an unfriendly artificial intelligence, or performs a catastrophic physics experiment that renders a portion of the galaxy uninhabitable.
To bolster humanity’s chances of survival, the researchers call for caution in sending signals into space, and in particular warn against broadcasting information about our biological make-up, which could be used to manufacture weapons that target humans. Instead, any contact with ETs should be limited to mathematical discourse “until we have a better idea of the type of ETI we are dealing with.”
The authors warn that extraterrestrials may be wary of civilizations that expand very rapidly, as these may be prone to destroy other life as they grow, just as humans have pushed species to extinction on Earth. In the most extreme scenario, aliens might choose to destroy humanity to protect other civilizations.
“A preemptive strike would be particularly likely in the early phases of our expansion because a civilization may become increasingly difficult to destroy as it continues to expand. Humanity may just now be entering the period in which its rapid civilisational expansion could be detected by an ETI because our expansion is changing the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere, via greenhouse gas emissions,” the report states.
I am sure that there are a few non believers who are saying that this is all speculative but keep in mind that while we are “not” planning on manned trips into space anytime soon, a special prototype of NASA’s planned deep space vehicle is undergoing vigorous testing as you are reading this to help engineers design the capsule that could one day take astronauts to destinations such as an asteroid or Mars.
It is known as the Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV), is based on capsule designs that were originally intended for NASA’s Orion spacecraft, which was part of the agency’s now-defunct Constellation program.
It seems a bit odd that while we are told that there is no need for a manned space program, space agencies have informed us of possible extraterrestrial meetings, asteroid collisions, and deep space missions.
There seems to be a war over space, the battlefield is well equipped and we now sit in the shadow of a metaphoric death star.
