THIS SPACE FOR SALE
With the final two space shuttle missions coming to an end, the United states has decided to stop pretending and has killed the myth that we actually have a manned space program that is going to boldly go where no man has gone before. For the longest time I have been criticized and bullied into keeping the faith about the space program and it was many years ago I stopped pretending and grew up. There was not going to be a ‘Star Trek’ in my future or even a ‘Battlestar’ or any other comic book fantasy about space.
I remember when George W. Bush proposed the Constellation program I knew that it was not going to get off the ground. I opened up the discussion about the idea that it is all just a dog and pony show and no one would listen. They would only become indignant. I understood why, because it closes up the ceiling and limits our vision and horizon.
It was becoming evident to me that with all of the lip service, things just didn’t add up with all of the stories about going back to moon, mining water and creating an outpost for a launch to Mars. There really was no purpose of motive for the proposal. It didn’t add up. While a space station sounded like all sorts of awesome, it did not seem practical. Nothing added up. Nothing made sense. The shuttles became safety hazards, and even though we allegedly had a successful Apollo program, no one really cared. The only memory we had was the Challenger and Columbia shuttles exploding and killing astronauts, even a teacher and somehow that clouded the memory of brave men leaving the confines of earth and setting foot on an extraterrestrial sphere.
Of course that is also up for discussion. To say we never went to the moon is anathema even though most teenagers would tell you that Louis Armstrong was the first man to step off the Lunar module into history.
I contend that the idea of space and space travel has been held sacred by geeks. Some geeks grow up and realize that perhaps it was all part of those lies we choose to believe in, just like poisoned Halloween Candy and the Bogeyman.
Back in 2009 we were told that NASA was carrying out experiments to find water on the moon in order to facilitate the possibility of a moon base. It was a lie and no matter how many people would scream that the accusation was part of conspiracy theory nonsense it is becoming quite clear that the mission was slated for a test of space weapons technology. It had nothing to do with manned missions to the moon.
Back in 2009, NASA launched its first Moon shot in 10 years, sending up a pair of un-manned science probes that were supposed to help determine where astronauts could land and colonize in the years to come. NASA received over $500 Million for a mission they called LCROSS. It was also a mission that was supposed to survey and map areas of the moon and then the Centaur rocket would be intentionally crashed into the moon’s surface at twice the speed of a bullet. It was supposed to blow out a 6 mile crater and then before it would be crashed, the other spacecraft known as the Shepherding craft would then determine if there are potential water-ice particulates in the Moon debris plume.
The lift-off occurred just one month and two days shy of the 40th anniversary of the alleged ‘FIRST LANDING BY MAN ON THE MOON’ The LCROSS mission was suspicious from the beginning and as we prepared for the impact others began to bring up inconsistencies and exposed a lot of lies that were previously told during the first noon landing in 1969
Lie upon lie was told to the American people about LCROSS and its purpose. The lies were so transparent I couldn’t believe what I was reading and hearing about. NASA claimed that the LCROSS mission was supposed to map out the Moon for landing sites for the new moon missions. Before the Apollo Missions, there were orbiters sent out to map the Moon and in 1994, Clementine was launched.
Between February 26 and April 22nd 1994, Clementine was able to deliver more than 1.8 million digital images of the Moon back to ground control including the NRL satellite ground-tracking station located in Maryland. These images were quickly accessible to the general public via the Internet. When scientists reviewed the data from Clementine, they already found the possible existence of ice within some of the Moon’s craters. Think about it, NASA in 40 years was not aware of the Moon’s topography with all of the manned missions and orbits they have successfully completed?
It didn’t make sense.
In 2009 NASA was also vague about how fast the new Rockets would reach orbit around the Moon. The LCROSS Rockets according to press releases were supposed to take a week to 10 days to reach the Moon. 40 years ago, the Apollo missions took three days and each mission had variant times. Apollo 8 took 20 hours to complete 10 Moon orbits, which equates to an average time of 2 hours per orbit.
Transferring the data to other missions results in vastly differing journey times to and from the Moon, which does not make sense. Apollo 12 got to the Moon in 26.5 hours, and yet Apollo 17 took 76 hours. It takes the Space Shuttle 66 Hrs to reach the ISS at only 185 miles above Earth.
So – why was there a mission to the moon to just blow up stuff? It is because it was a test of what is known as a Kinetic kill weapon. While Nuclear Missiles pointed at the enemy was in violation of space treaties, pointing metal rods as thick as telephone poles at an enemy probably won’t get much attention. The United States has experimented with this type or warfare before – with something known as Project THOR.
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 traveling 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 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 is the next step in our cosmic superiority. Imagine high above us in space are platforms that have these rods ready to drop on targets. We have been told that there are quite possibly military platforms above us in space. What would they be there for? Not for manned space travel, but to be fortresses that house kinetic kill weapons that can be released by a controller sitting in a combat room somewhere in California or Colorado.
This could account for some of the UFO’s that have been seen lately. It was reported on Ground Zero by Bill Birnes of UFO Hunters that while investigating the possibility of a New Area 51 near Dugway Utah, they had recorded a number of space platforms above Utah and Nevada. A lot of these flat and cylindrical platforms with red lights have been seen in Utah, California, Chicago, Brazil and Israel. There have been witnesses that claim that a platform with red lights has been seen dropping what look like probes or even rods to earth.
This backs up yet another interesting story about a NASA computer hacker named Gary McKinnon.
McKinnon 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 story makes us wonder if we are being told everything about what is going on above us. The McKinnon story is just one of the many that provide circumstantial evidence that points to the possibility that there are secret weapons and stations above us in space. There are other interesting things to consider as well.
Back in 2008, President Bush had asked the Pentagon to come up with a plan to destroy a dead satellite that was heading to Earth. Many observers said a “shoot-down” was unnecessary because such objects falling to Earth typically burn up when re-entering the atmosphere. However if we are to theorize that the satellite was carrying Kinetic kill weapons made of tungsten then this would be a very logical reason to fire on the satellite. Tungsten of all of the metals has the highest melting point (3,422 °C) (6,192 °F), lowest vapor pressure, and the highest tensile strength. Tungsten has the lowest coefficient of thermal expansion of any pure metal. That means tungsten rods don’t burn up speeding through the Earth’s atmosphere to the intended Target. If the satellite were to carry kinetic weapons, there would be a definite reason to shoot it down.
At the time, the shooting down of the satellite was “suspect” and the Military said that they needed to eliminate the possibility of Hydrazine, a toxic chemical, dispersing over a populated area. Many speculated that the reason why China and Russia were prompted to monitor the situation was that the countries were concerned about the missile and whether or not it was in reality a Pentagon weapons test.
Now what if one of the secret weapons inadvertently dropped from the sky and someone actually went out their way to find out where it landed? A recent U.S. military policy decision now explicitly states that incoming space debris, bolides and fireballs, are classified secret and are not to be released. It is odd that the availability of incoming fireball data should be curtailed just at the time that New NEO programs were given the go ahead for amateur astronomers to survey small space objects that are likely to be picked up in the fireball monitoring program.
Another interesting and somewhat suspicious event that has taken place is also connected to the proofs that NASA gives us of Manned Moon landings. Apollo missions forty years ago allegedly left retro-reflective mirrors on the Moon, to measure its distance relative to Earth. Lasers send out a precisely timed pulse, and can measure the distance to within a fraction of an inch. This has always been held as an argument of proof that the missions took place. The reflectors are supposed to send messages to a monitoring station here on Earth.
The National Science Foundation cut the funding for the McDonald laser ranging station at Ft. Davis. Texas that tracks the reflectors the only so called proof of the moon landing. Conveniently, the “National Science Foundation” kills this project that consumes a paltry $125,000 a year? While NASA poured a ton of money into LCROSS Moon-doggle that was supposed to prepare astronauts to go into space and work on the moon.
Now we know it wasn’t even in the cards. It was also a bit strange to note that during the whole NASA Fiasco of LCROSS there were reports that NASA tapes showing the first Astronauts walking on the moon wound up missing.
These tapes were supposed to show clearer images of the Moon landing instead of the ghostly images that look primitive and quite frankly hoaxed.
After 3 years of not having the videos, they conveniently show up again on the 40th anniversary of the alleged Moon landing. This seems a little fishy. Conspiracy theorists have always said that the fuzzy Moon landing video we see looks hoaxed. Let’s suppose that the Videos were never misplaced. They were just removed in order be taken to Skywalker ranch to do some editing and digital removal of anything that remotely looks hokey or faked. Then miraculously the tapes return with all of the new digital tricks and VIOLA !!! Shut down any arguments about a possible hoax. NASA announced that the new tapes had been restored and digitally re-mastered to look clear.
Kennedy had said that he wanted to see a moon landing. He knew that the plan would take a long time and projected the date to be somewhere in the mid 1970’. When people asked if we could be superior in the space race—he said “yes we can” Even if we didn’t go there was still the enthusiasm with the dream. Barack Obama was the “yes we can” candidate who says no we can’t.
Imagine a world where man decides to send robots to climb a mountain like Everest – would that mean as much to anyone? It would be interesting but what sacrifice do machines give to explore new territory? What if the settlers and the pioneers of the west were robots would that be meaningful? Would it have the same impact or humanity?
Is this our future? No ambition to do the task ourselves? No ambition to create space based manufacturing companies, or mining colonies?
What about the first child born in space?
It seems to be evident NASA and the Obama administration is okay with sending robots to space. Perhaps the reason we will not be going to the strange new worlds is because we never went beyond the Van Allen belt. The moon was not even an option. It was all faked on a sound stage and directed by Stanley Kubrick.
Think about it this is the “spin off” of the Apollo program, 40 years in the making. It was nothing then and it is nothing now.
Why don’t we bring the troops home and send in the robots?
The world has its priorities out of whack.
