NASA is just a big front for the secret government’s military industrial congressional complex’s hog trough, without any regard to mankind’s destiny in space. It’s Ares spacecraft and Constellation Project is a bunch of horse-shit designed to siphon what little money Americans have left in their wallets. With their cries of “chemical rockets are the best way to get back to the Moon” and “we’ll save money reusing Apollo 1960s tech (which in reality is Von Braun Nazi tech from the 1940s)” lies, they’re ensuring that thousands of skilled engineers will lose their jobs in the ensuing years, while feeding the globalist agenda of outsourcing skilled labor to cheaper places, this time Russia and at the same time draining the United States of much needed brain power.
I bet you’re thinking I’m going around the bend on this. Well, check this shit out:
It’s the rocket NASA won’t talk about — but proponents insist it could change everything. If built, they say, it could get America back on the moon faster and cheaper than anything NASA is designing — and save thousands of jobs in Florida.Kennedy Space Center when the shuttles are mothballed.
It’s called Direct 2.0, or the Jupiter 120 rocket. The simplicity of its design, and the possibility that it could shave years off a projected five-year gap in U.S. human spaceflight once the shuttle retires in 2010, is gaining Direct a growing following among engineers and space enthusiasts — including NASA workers who are secretly helping the project on their own time. Adherents say it could fly by 2013 for less than the projected cost of NASA’s Ares rocket.
Indeed, an unfinished internal NASA study — shut down and disowned by the agency last fall — showed Direct 2.0 would outperform Ares, which the agency is designing for its Constellation program to return astronauts to the moon. The initial results showed Direct 2.0 was superior in cost, overall performance and work-force retention — a big issue for Florida.
This is beyond pathetic, it’s fucking criminal. Especially when one reads headlines like this:
NASA told a U.S. Senate panel on Monday that it anticipates losing 3,000 to 4,000 jobs at its launching site once the space shuttles stop flying in two more years, about half the cutback initially reported.
Although as many as 6,000 to 7,000 shuttle jobs will be eliminated at Kennedy Space Center, about 3,000 positions will open up in the new exploration program, said NASA Administrator Michael Griffin. Those jobs will be created to build and fly new spaceships to the international space station and, ultimately, to the moon.
“I can’t say it’s good news, but it’s certainly news that’s a step in the right direction,” said Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, chairman of the space subcommittee, who organized the hearing…
…Nelson said layoffs could economically devastate the area, similar to what happened during the lull between the Apollo moon shots of the early 1970s and the first space shuttle flight in 1981.
“The last thing we need to do is to lose this tremendous work force, to put people out of work, give them a pink slip, while at the same time we’re generating jobs in Russia to accomplish the same mission,” Martinez said. “It’s shortsighted. It makes no sense. We need to reverse it.”
Griffin acknowledged he finds it “unseemly in the extreme” to have to rely on Russia.
“However, I can’t find a way to avoid it,” he said.
“However, I can’t find a way to avoid it,” he says. Bullshit. He and his masters knew how to avoid it and made a conscious descision not to. Just business as usual in the One World Order as they say.
It’s bad enough when an agency that professes to have America’s and mankind’s future interests at heart deny that Tesla/Carr technology for spacecraft exists and is currently being used by the U.S. military, but when they purposely turn away chemical rocket technology that’s slightly better and is able to return Americans to the Moon safer, cheaper and sooner, that shows me that NASA isn’t the ‘big’ player they claim to be.
They’re just another “dog and pony” show to distract the sheeple!
While I was doing my morning routine this a.m., trawling the InnerTubes and drinking coffee, I spotted this interesting little piece:
They won’t utter Yuri Gagarin’s famous phrase “Let’s go!” But the monkeys of Sochi have already proven their worth as trailblazers in space – and now they are being groomed for a trip to Mars.
The macaques will be the first to experience the radiation that poses a big risk to astronauts – or Russian cosmonauts – on any flight to the Red Planet.
The Sochi Institute of Medical Primatology, at Vesyoloye near the Black Sea, has a proud history of involvement in the Russian – formerly Soviet – space programme.
“People and monkeys have approximately identical sensitivity to small and large radiation doses,” explains the institute’s director, Boris Lapin. “So it is better to experiment on the macaques, but not on dogs or other animals.”
Leave it to the Russians to get all serious on us about actually putting human beings on Mars, or any primate for that matter. The Russians of course have a long history of putting animals into space to test affects of cosmic rays and other radiations that can damage organic matter. Yeah, I know, PETA and a bevy of animal rights groups will raise a hew and cry over this, but let’s face facts here; animals are poached, caught, shipped, abused and raised at ‘mills’ for the express purpose of getting experimented on by various industries all over the world to test consumer products whether we like it or not. Cosmetic industries are notorious for that especially. Okay there’s international laws and all that jive, but you know as well as I animal experimentation still happens, fact.
Since the Russians are old hands at this, there are actual survivors of space experiments conducted, so they just don’t shoot them up there and let them burn up on re-entry. The idea is to have living proof of the studies, if humans are to follow.
The Russians are obviously serious about finding new industrial and living space resources without committing genocide on unfortunate Third World nations, putting their new-found energy exporting muscle to good use. The superpower game is a “been there, done that” deal to them.
So the first ‘canned primate’ to land on Mars might not be a human.
I hope the Russians let the macaques have some kind of celebration if they make it there in one piece. Maybe bananas dipped in Smirnoff’s?
Tip o’ the hat to Universe Today.
From Press TV:
China will launch ten spacecrafts this year including two environmental satellites, a meteorological satellite and a communications satellite for Venezuela, said Yang Baohua, head of the China Academy of Space Technology, according to the China Daily.The missions this year also include two Shenzhou VII spaceships, one of which will feature the country’s first spacewalk, Yang said.
“China’s space technology has entered a new stage. The design and manufacture of satellites takes less time, and homemade satellites are more reliable and have a longer lifespan,” Yang added.
China and Russia have expressed concerns about a US plan to shoot down what officials in Washington say is a crippled spy satellite, with that event to take place potentially as early as this week.
Yang said the country is also planning to send a record number of satellites into space in the next five to 10 years, but failed to mention the exact number.
This is pretty impressive by any standard, with a manned launch thrown in to boot.
Is this announcement a response to the American decision to shoot down its crippled satellite? An, ” Okay, you’re going to show me yours, but here’s mine!” kinda thing?
My take on all this posturing is just that, posturing. Along with the recent successful Iranian rocket launch and Russia’s continuous supplying of Iranian nuclear facilities/reactors, the Rockefeller owned American government is just stewing in its own juices, with the neoconmunists adding their own distinctive flavors.
This is shaping up to quite an interesting year indeed!
