NASA approved to test new technology that will PUNCH an asteroid headed toward Earth

It would be impressive if technology existed that could deflect an asteroid on a path toward Earth and save mankind from devastating impact. Well, NASA plans to test new technology that aims to do just that.

On Wednesday’s show, Pat Gray and Jeff Fisher detailed how NASA has approved a project called the Double Asteroid Redirection Test, the aim of which is to throw a “small” asteroid off course in October 2022.

Pat called the technology amazing and later added that it would be impressive if we have the capability to move an asteroid out of its flight path. Watch the clip for more from Pat.

Intelwars Mars NASA Past life Perseverance Rover

NASA rover Perseverance lands on Mars after 6 month journey

NASA’s rover named Perseverance — or “Percy” for short — successfully landed on Mars on Thursday, after a journey of more than 6 months travelling at 12,000 mph through space for 293 million miles.

What are the details?

Perseverance is on a mission to take photographs and collect samples of Martian soil and rock for analysis as a $2.4 billion “robot geologist,” as CBS News described.

The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., erupted in cheers and applause after the safe landing, with guidance and control operations lead Swati Mohan declaring, “Touchdown confirmed! Perseverance is safely on the surface of Mars, ready to begin seeking the signs of past life.”

Following the landing, the rover’s Twitter account shared a photo taken from the red planet with the caption, “Hello, world. My first look at my forever home.”

CNN noted that “Perseverance is NASA’s ninth landing on Mars and the agency’s fifth rover.” It’s also the heaviest, weighing more than a metric ton.

The outlet reported:

Perseverance also carries instruments that could help further exploration on Mars in the future, like MOXIE, the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment. This experiment, about the size of a car battery, will attempt to convert Martian carbon dioxide into oxygen.

Not only could this help NASA scientists learn how to produce rocket fuel on Mars, but also oxygen that could be used during future human exploration of the red planet.

Ken Farley, project scientist for Mars 2020 said in a statement, “Perseverance’s sophisticated science instruments will not only help in the hunt for fossilized microbial life, but also expand our knowledge of Martian geology and its past, present, and future.”

Anything else?

After Perseverance landed around 4:00 pm EST, the name “Matt Damon” began trending on Twitter, as social media users joked that the rover might stumble across the actor who starred in the 2015 hit film “The Martian,” based on the book by Andy Weir.

China China spying Espionage Intelwars Meyya meyyappan NASA spying Thousand talents Thousand talents plan Thousand talents program

Senior NASA scientist pleads guilty to lying about China ties

A senior NASA scientist pleaded guilty to lying about his participation in a Chinese program that recruits “individuals with access to or knowledge of foreign technology or intellectual property.”

Meyya Meyyappan of Pacifica, California, pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements in a New York federal court on Wednesday. Meyyappan, 66, entered his plea before U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel in Manhattan federal court, the U.S. Department of Justice said Wednesday.

Meyyappan has been employed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration since 1996, and has been a “chief scientist for Exploration Technology at NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley” since 2006, according to Meyyappan’s profile on the NASA website. Previously, Meyyappan served as the director of the Center for Nanotechnology at Ames.

“Dr. Meyyappan is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Electrochemical Society (ECS), American Vacuum Society (AVS), Materials Research Society (MRS), Institute of Physics (IOP), American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), American Institute of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), National Academy of Inventors, and the California Council of Science and Technology,” the space agency said.

In October, Meyyappan was interviewed by the FBI, the NASA Office of Inspector General, and the United States Attorney’s Office.

“During that interview, Meyyappan falsely stated, among other things, that he was not a member of the Thousand Talents Program and that he did not hold a professorship at a Chinese university,” the DOJ press release stated. “In truth and in fact, Meyyappan was a member of the Thousand Talents Program and held a professorship at a Chinese university, funded by the Chinese government.”

The DOJ stated that Meyyappan “participated in China’s Thousand Talents Program, a program established by the Chinese government to recruit individuals with access to or knowledge of foreign technology or intellectual property, and held professorships at universities in China, South Korea, and Japan, and failed to disclose these associations and positions to NASA and the U.S. Office of Government Ethics.”

NASA OIG Special Agent in Charge Mark J. Zielinski stated, “Certain NASA employees are required to disclose affiliations with foreign entities in order to protect NASA’s intellectual property. Failure to do so could allow malicious foreign actors unauthorized access to American taxpayer funded technologies. We thank the FBI and the USAO, SDNY for their assistance throughout this investigation.”

Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said, “Meyya Meyyappan held a trusted position at NASA, with access to valuable intellectual property. In violation of the terms of his employment and relevant laws and regulations, Meyyappan failed to disclose participation in a Chinese government recruitment program, and subsequently lied about it to NASA investigators, FBI agents, and our Office. Now, having admitted his crime, Meyyappan awaits sentencing.”

Meyyappan is scheduled to be sentenced on June 16, and faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

In May, the DOJ announced that a former Cleveland Clinic employee had been arrested. Dr. Qing Wang “lied to receive more than $3.6 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health while also collecting money for the same research from the Chinese government,” NPR reported.

“It is also alleged that Dr. Wang participated in the Thousand Talents Program, a program established by the Chinese government to recruit individuals with access to or knowledge of foreign technology and intellectual property,” the DOJ statement said.

In June, a prominent scientist at Harvard University was indicted by the Justice Department for lying to federal authorities about his participation in China’s Thousand Talents Program.

Dr. Charles Lieber, the former chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department, lied to the U.S. government about his position as “Strategic Scientist” at the Wuhan University of Technology in China, according to prosecutors. He was allegedly paid a salary of up to $50,000 a month to set up the laboratory for the Wuhan University of Technology, plus was allotted additional living expenses of up to $158,000.

Lieber has pleaded not guilty.

In July, the Department of Justice claimed that a NASA researcher and University of Arkansas professor had ties to the Chinese government. Simon Saw-Teong Ang, was indicted by a federal grand jury on 42 counts of wire fraud and two counts of passport fraud.

Court documents show that Ang had conversations with a researcher in China about his involvement in the Thousand Talents Program.

“Not many people here know I am [a Thousand talents program scholar] but if this leaks out, my job here will be in deep troubles,” Ang reportedly wrote. “I have to be very careful or else I may be out of my job from this university.”

FBI Director Chris Wray gave a speech at the Hudson Institute in July, where he delivered a warning about the Thousand Talents Program.

“Through its talent recruitment programs, like the so-called Thousand Talents Program, the Chinese government tries to entice scientists to secretly bring our knowledge and innovation back to China — even if that means stealing proprietary information or violating our export controls and conflict-of-interest rules,” Wray said.

“The greatest long-term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property, and to our economic vitality, is the counterintelligence and economic espionage threat from China,” Wray said during the speech. “It’s a threat to our economic security — and by extension, to our national security.”

In November 2019, the U.S. Senate released a report titled, “Threats to the U.S. Research Enterprise: China’s Talent Recruitment Plans,” which outlined dangers presented by Chinese recruitment organizations, including the Thousand Talents Program.

Launched in 2008, the Thousand Talents Plan incentivizes individuals engaged in research and development in the United States to transmit the knowledge and research they gain here to China in exchange for salaries, research funding, lab space, and other incentives. China unfairly uses the American research and expertise it obtains for its own economic and military gain. In recent years, federal agencies have discovered talent recruitment plan members who downloaded sensitive electronic research files before leaving to return to China, submitted false information when applying for grant funds, and willfully failed to disclose receiving money from the Chinese government on U.S. grant applications.

China designed the Thousand Talents Plan to recruit 2,000 high-quality overseas talents, including scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and finance experts. The plan provides salaries, research funding, lab space, and other incentives to lure experts into researching for China. According to one report, by 2017, China dramatically exceeded its recruitment goal, having recruited more than 7,000 “high-end professionals,” including several Nobel laureates.

In December, a massive database of nearly 2 million registered Chinese Communist Party members was leaked to the public. The database breach reportedly gave insight into CCP members infiltrating western companies, including businesses in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

Arizona arizona senate Astronauts Buzz Aldrin Intelwars Mark Kelly Martha mcsally NASA senate race

Buzz Aldrin shuns fellow astronaut Mark Kelly, will endorse Arizona Republican ?Martha McSally

Legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin endorsed Republican Sen. Martha McSally for the Senate seat in Arizona, snubbing her challenger, former astronaut Mark Kelly.

“Martha, check six – Mark? Buzz – over 100 jet hours in Arizona,” Aldrin wrote on Twitter. “12 o’clock is straight ahead. 6 o’clock is behind. Fighter pilots understand what ‘check six’ means in FTR lingo talk. Martha, wave as you move ahead past Mark, to 12 o’clock, and you win for Arizona!”

Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, who is a retired Air Force pilot, was speaking in aviation terms to McSally because she is also a former United States Air Force pilot. As commander of the 354th Fighter Squadron and an A-10 Thunderbolt II pilot, McSally was deployed to Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. McSally became the first woman in U.S. history to serve as the commander of any combat aviation squadron, to include fighters and bombers.

McSally thanked the iconic astronaut for his support.

“Absolute honor to have the support of hero astronaut Buzz Aldrin in this mission,” McSally said on Twitter. “We must hold this seat, the Senate, and save the country. It’s a dog fight, and as we fighter pilots say: Fight’s On!”

Besides Aldrin, the celebrated Apollo 11 Lunar Module pilot and one of 12 humans who have walked on the moon, McSally has also been endorsed by three other former astronauts.

Former astronauts Tom Stafford, Charlie Duke, and Jack Lousma, shunned their fellow astronaut Mark Kelly to throw support to McSally.

“As former fighter pilots and test pilots, we know what it takes to get in the cockpit of a fighter jet for a test flight or combat: incredible determination, strength and grit,” the former astronauts, who have spent about 2,400 hours in space combined, wrote earlier this month. “That’s why we support Sen. Martha McSally. As the first woman in U.S. history to fly a fighter jet in combat and command a fighter squadron, she broke barriers in the Air Force and the military.”

Despite losing the coveted astronaut vote, Kelly is leading in the polls. Kelly, the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate, is leading by 5.6 points, according to RealClearPolitics.

Earlier this month, Kelly issued an apology after his deputy press secretary referred to police officers as “worthless f***ing pigs” in a tweet.

Armageddon asteroid Earth Emergency Preparedness Headline News Intelwars jet propulsion laboratory mini moon NASA Near Earth Objects notable passes planet Soldier weather satellites

Why Are So Many Asteroids Having Close Calls With Earth In 2020?

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

Have you noticed that it seems like stories about asteroids that are approaching the Earth are constantly in the news this year?  It wasn’t always this way.  In the old days, maybe there would be a story about an asteroid every once in a while, and those stories were never a big deal.

But now asteroids are zipping by our planet with frightening regularity, and several more very notable passes will happen over the next few weeks.  For example, an asteroid that was just discovered on September 18th will come very, very close to the Earth on Thursday.  According to NASA, it will actually come closer to our planet than many of our weather satellites

An asteroid about the size of an RV or small school bus will zoom past the Earth on Thursday, NASA announced, passing within 13,000 miles of the Earth’s surface.

That’s much closer than the moon and is actually closer than some of our weather satellites.

This asteroid will speed by at more than 17,000 mph, but the good news is that it is so small that it would not be a serious threat even if it hit us.

But two other very large asteroids are also going to pass the Earth by the end of this month, and both of them are large enough to do an enormous amount of damage…

Two large asteroids will pass Earth in the next two weeks, with one measuring up to 426 feet in diameter and the other 656 feet—comparable in size to ancient Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza, which is 455 feet tall.

The first, smaller asteroid will pass by Earth on September 25 at a distance of 3.6 million miles, according to NASA’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies, which tracks and predicts asteroids and comets that will come close to Earth. The second larger asteroid will fly by on September 29 at a closer distance of 1.78 million miles.

The good news is that neither of them have a chance of hitting us this time around, but the fact that the Earth’s neighborhood has so much “traffic” these days is a major concern.

Any soldier will tell you that if enough bullets get fired at you there is a very good chance that eventually you will get hit.

Let me give you a couple more examples of “near-Earth objects” that are headed our way in the near future…

In October, an “unknown object” is expected to enter our gravitational field and become a temporary “mini-moon”

An object known as 2020 SO is heading towards Earth, and from October, it will be a ‘mini-moon’, which could stay in orbit of our planet until May next year. While we have The Moon, Earth regularly gets many small asteroids and meteors which caught in its orbit, which astronomers call ‘mini-moons’.

And in November, we are being told that a small asteroid will come very close to our planet on the day before the election

An asteroid is projected to come close to the Earth on November 2, a day before the 2020 U.S. presidential election, the Center for Near Earth Objects Studies (CNEOS) at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed.

The asteroid known as 2018VP1, first identified at Palomar Observatory in San Diego County, California, has a diameter of 0.002 kilometers (over 6.5 feet), according to the data.

Scientists say that it is not likely that this asteroid will hit us, but they admit that they cannot claim this with 100 percent certainty

And that’s why the future of 2018 VP? is uncertain. It was observed 21 times over 13 days, which allows its orbit to be calculated fairly precisely. We know it takes 2 years (plus or minus 0.001314 years) to go around the Sun. In other words, our uncertainty in the asteroid’s orbital period is about 12 hours either way.

That’s actually pretty good, given how few observations were made – but it means we can’t be certain exactly where the asteroid will be on November 2 this year.

Fortunately, this particular asteroid is also too small to seriously hurt us, and we should be thankful for that.

But the fact that so many space rocks have been headed our way is definitely alarming.

Back in August, an asteroid the size of an SUV came extremely close to hitting our planet.  The following comes from NASA

Near Earth Asteroids, or NEAs, pass by our home planet all the time. But an SUV-size asteroid set the record this past weekend for coming closer to Earth than any other known NEA: It passed 1,830 miles (2,950 kilometers) above the southern Indian Ocean on Sunday, Aug. 16 at 12:08 a.m. EDT (Saturday, Aug. 15 at 9:08 p.m. PDT).

What made that incident so unsettling was the fact that NASA didn’t even see it until it had passed us

The flyby wasn’t expected and took many by surprise. In fact, the Palomar Observatory didn’t detect the zooming asteroid until about six hours after the object’s closest approach. “The asteroid approached undetected from the direction of the sun,” Paul Chodas, the director of NASA’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies, told Business Insider. “We didn’t see it coming.”

Unfortunately, the truth is that our scientists simply cannot see everything that is up there.

They are doing their best, but everyone agrees that our technology is limited.

But over the last 20 years, our technology has definitely improved, and at this point, the number of asteroids that our scientists have identified is far greater than it was a couple of decades ago

The animation maps out all known near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) — space rocks that get within about 30 million miles (50 million kilometers) of our planet’s orbit — from 1999 through January 2018, in roughly 10-year time steps.

The differences are stark. In 1999, identified NEAs speckled the inner solar system thinly, in a light dusting. Many more were discovered by 2009, and Earth’s neighborhood looks absolutely swamped in the present-day portion of the video.

Of course, more giant space rocks are being discovered all the time, and unfortunately, many of them are not identified until after they have had a close encounter with our planet.

If NASA couldn’t see the asteroid that almost hit us in August in advance, what else can’t they see?

And is it just our imagination that the number of close calls seems to be increasing, or are scientists just getting a whole lot better at detecting them?

At this moment we don’t have all the answers, but we should be thankful that our experts are trying to keep a close watch on the skies because scientists tell us that it is just a matter of time before we are hit by a giant asteroid.

In the movie Deep Impact, such a scenario was called an “extinction-level event”.

As I write this article, there are thousands of giant space rocks floating around up there that could cause such a disaster, and NASA is working to catalog them all as rapidly as they can.

If NASA Couldn’t See The Asteroid That Just Whizzed By Us, What Else Can’t They See?

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

Did you know that an asteroid just flew by our planet at an extremely close distance?  The good news is that it was only about the size of a car, but the bad news is that NASA had absolutely no idea that it was coming.

In fact, NASA only discovered it about six hours after it had passed us.  If NASA could not see that asteroid coming straight at us, what else is heading toward us that they cannot see? It has been estimated that “about 17,000 big near-Earth asteroids remain undetected”, but the truth is that we don’t really know how many giant space rocks are floating around out there.  Of course, scientists all around the world are doing their best to catalog new potential threats all the time, but what most people don’t realize is that this is an area where our technology is still very limited.

The asteroid that almost entered our atmosphere on August 15th was hurtling toward us at 27,600 miles per hour.

In other words, it was traveling at almost 8 miles per second.

That is fast.

And according to the official NASA website, it came within just 1,830 miles of our planet…

Near Earth Asteroids, or NEAs, pass by our home planet all the time. But an SUV-size asteroid set the record this past weekend for coming closer to Earth than any other known NEA: It passed 1,830 miles (2,950 kilometers) above the southern Indian Ocean on Sunday, Aug. 16 at 12:08 a.m. EDT (Saturday, Aug. 15 at 9:08 p.m. PDT).

In astronomical terms, that is an extremely close shave, and NASA is openly admitting that “we didn’t see it coming”

The flyby wasn’t expected and took many by surprise. In fact, the Palomar Observatory didn’t detect the zooming asteroid until about six hours after the object’s closest approach. “The asteroid approached undetected from the direction of the sun,” Paul Chodas, the director of NASA’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies, told Business Insider. “We didn’t see it coming.”

This admission surprised many Americans because most people assume that NASA would give us plenty of advance notice if a civilization-killing asteroid really was heading our way.

Of course, that is not necessarily true at all.  There are many giant space rocks floating around out there that are exceedingly difficult to detect, and that is especially true if they are coming at us from the direction of the sun

There’s not much we can do about detecting inbound asteroids coming from the sunward direction, as asteroids are detected using optical telescopes only (like ZTF), and we can only search for them in the night sky. The idea is that we discover them on one of their prior passages by our planet, and then make predictions years and decades in advance to see whether they have any possibility of impacting.

NASA has a plan to improve our ability to detect incoming asteroids, and that will be welcome news for those that are concerned that a civilization-killing asteroid may be heading our way.

But the bad news is that the space telescope at the heart of NASA’s plan will not be launched until 2025

NASA has a plan to address these gaps in its asteroid-hunting program. The agency is in the early stages of developing a space telescope that could detect asteroids and comets coming from the sun’s direction.

NASA’s 2020 budget allotted nearly $36 million for that telescope, called the Near-Earth Object Surveillance Mission.

If funding continues, it could launch as early as 2025.

We have about five years to wait before this plan is implemented, and so let us hope that a giant space rock is not headed our way before then.

But we do know that a fairly sizable asteroid will be making a very close approach to our planet next month.  On September 1st, a 150-foot rock known as “asteroid 2011 ES4” will fly past us at more than 18,000 miles per hour, and it will do so “at a far closer distance than the Moon”

Asteroid 2011 ES4, which measures approximately 150ft (50m) across, is expected to hurtle past the Earth at staggering speeds of 18,253mph (29,375kmh) next month. And although the size and speed of the asteroid is not that unusual, this space rock will fly past Earth at a far closer distance than the Moon.

I want to stress that scientists do not expect this asteroid to hit us, and I do not expect it to hit us either.

But the fact that it is flying by us at just “0.00048 AU” is definitely alarming

The CNEOS database reveals the asteroid will pass by the Earth on September 1 at 3.49pm BST (10.49am ET).

Asteroid 2011 ES4 will fly by at 0.00048 AU (Astronomical Units) away – approximately 44,618 miles).

This distance is far closer to Earth than the Moon, which usually orbits at a distance of 238,855 miles (384,399km) distant.

But just because this one won’t hit us doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be concerned.

Earlier this month, I wrote an article about what scientists have discovered would happen if a very large asteroid hit the Atlantic Ocean.  It is estimated that the resulting tsunami would send waves that are hundreds of feet high toward the east coast of the United States, and millions of people would perish.  Of course, most Americans that live on the east coast never even imagine that such a thing could happen, but the truth is that we have been repeatedly warned about such a potential disaster.

I truly hope that NASA will be able to give us as much advance warning as possible when that day finally arrives.

But NASA didn’t see the asteroid that almost entered our atmosphere a few days ago.

And there have been countless other asteroids over the years that NASA didn’t see until they were past us.

This is an area of research that I am particularly interested in, and at this point, I don’t have a whole lot of faith in NASA’s ability to see what is coming.

In addition, even if they do see a giant space rock heading directly toward our planet, that doesn’t mean that they will actually tell us.

Rather than alarming the general public, they would probably start implementing plans behind the scenes to save those that are deemed to be “essential”.

Of course, they might finally inform the rest of us just before it hit, but by then it would be far too late to do much about it.

Sunspot Could Send Solar Flares Toward Earth That May Disrupt The Power Grid

A massive sunspot on the surface of the sun has the potential to shoot solar flares toward Earth, and this particular sunspot is one of concern. A solar flare could disrupt the power grid and take down some radio communications.

A massive flare is expected from sunspot AR2770. Not only is a massive flare likely, but this sunspot is also expected to grow in size and cause eruptions, The Financial Express reported. According to the report, the sunspot with an expected diameter of 50,000 kilometers is likely to release a huge amount of energy that will lead to solar flares and storms. This phenomenon is known as Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) which impacts radio waves and satellite communications.

This sunspot is about the size of the planet Mars. According to NASA, “solar flares are a sudden explosion of energy caused by tangling, crossing, or reorganizing of magnetic field lines near sunspots.”

According to NASA, very large flares can even create currents within electricity grids and knock out energy supplies. When Coronal Mass Ejections strike Earth they cause geomagnetic storms and enhanced aurora. They can disrupt radio waves, GPS coordinates, and overload electrical systems.

A large influx of energy could flow into high voltage power grids and permanently damage transformers. This could shut off businesses and homes around the world.

Make sure your preps are in place. This is only a “potential” for grid failure, but if it does happen and the power grid is down for an extended period of time, people will panic. Fear is a highly toxic and addictive emotion and with so many still cowering over the scamdemic, we could see massive riots and civil unrest.

The mainstream media has also been ignoring, for the most part, any changes in the sun while keeping attention diverted to a second lockdown and COVID-19 panic. The media (who are puppets of the government, who are puppets of the central banks) definitely wants the focus to be on this hoax of a pandemic, and perhaps it’s a distraction. Keep your eyes and ears open and be aware of what could happen. Refuse fear, and live freely. Knowing is the first half of the battle. Prepare both your home and your mind.

Cosmos Eskimo nebula Intelwars NASA PC culture political correctness Siamese twins galaxy

NASA goes woke, gets brutally mocked for removing ‘actively harmful’ names of galaxies, stars

NASA is going woke.

The space agency announced this week they would engage in political correctness when referring to planets, stars, galaxies, and other cosmic bodies that have been given what some people might consider “actively harmful” names.

“As the scientific community works to identify and address systemic discrimination and inequality in all aspects of the field, it has become clear that certain cosmic nicknames are not only insensitive, but can be actively harmful,” NASA said in a press release on Wednesday.

“NASA is examining its use of unofficial terminology for cosmic objects as part of its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion,” the agency added.

So far, NASA has targeted two cosmic objects for immediate changes.

Planetary nebula NGC 2392 will no longer be called by its unofficial name, “Eskimo Nebula,” while NGC 4567 and NGC 4568 — a pair of spiral galaxies — will no longer be called the “Siamese Twins Galaxy,” the agency said.

According to NASA, the word “eskimo” is offensive because it “is widely viewed as a colonial term with a racist history, imposed on the indigenous people of Arctic regions.

While “Eskimo Nebula” and “Siamese Twins Galaxy” were the only two cosmic objects for which NASA announced changes, the agency indicated they would work with “diversity, inclusion, and equity experts in the astronomical and physical sciences” to identify other planets, stars, and galaxies with “inappropriate” nicknames.

What was the response?

The agency was widely panned and mocked on social media over its announcement.

  • “Your job, @NASA, is to explore space & understand the cosmos.

    Not to appease the woke cult through virtue signalling,” one person said.

  • “could you just, I don’t know, focus on safe space travel? you know, Math? not worrying about the ethnicity of the person who is best at…you know…math? cause political correctness is nowhere near as important and the accuracy of the trajectory,” another person responded.
  • “There goes Black Holes,” one person mocked.
  • “My God, even you have been compromised. We are done for. Its been a fun ride folks,” another person mocked.
  • “If NASA goes woke it’ll be the beginning of the end for them,” one commenter predicted.
  • “Dear NASA: Will you also address the following hurtful and insensitive terms: Big Bang Theory, Uranus, black holes, dwarf stars, and dark matter,” another person mocked.
  • “Renaming black holes will end racism. Guaranteed,” another person mocked.

NASA & FEMA Conducted “Asteroid Impact” Drills For Impact In September of 2020

NASA and FEMA teamed up back in 2016 to conduct some “asteroid impact” drills.  While this may seem like it’s not a big deal, take a moment, and remember Event 201 – the elitists “plan” to create the coronavirus plandemic to roll out the New World Order.

In 2016, NASA and FEMA created a plan for an asteroid impact to take place on September 20, 2020. This event could be considered the second 9/11 if it happens. Remember, Event 201 predicted not only the coronavirus pandemic, but the totalitarian takeover in the aftermath.

“It is critical to exercise these kinds of low-probability but high-consequence disaster scenarios,” FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate said. “By working through our emergency response plans now, we will be better prepared if and when we need to respond to such an event.”

Exercise attendees included representatives from NASA, FEMA, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the Department of Energy’s National Laboratories, the U.S. Air Force, and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.

The exercise simulated a possible impact four years from now — a fictitious asteroid imagined to have been discovered this fall with a 2 percent probability of impact with Earth on Sept. 20, 2020. The simulated asteroid was initially estimated to be between 300 and 800 feet (100 and 250 meters) in size, with a possibility of making impact anywhere along a long swath of Earth, including a narrow band of area that crossed the entire United States. –NASA

Please DO NOT forget Event 201, which reads:

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.

A severe pandemic, which becomes “Event 201,” would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions. –Center for Health Security

NASA provides expert input to FEMA about the asteroid impact hazard through the Planetary Defense Coordination Office. NASA and FEMA will continue to conduct asteroid impact exercises and intend to expand participation in future exercises to include additional representatives from local and state emergency management agencies and the private sector.

These drills often have an uncanny way of becoming our reality. Is this predictive programming? A warning as to what the elitists are going to do to us next? Or an innocent government-sponsored drill? I’d say, based on current events, the third, is far less likely than the other two.

WATCH: SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launches, carries first NASA astronauts into space in 9 years

We have liftoff.

For the first time in nine years, NASA astronauts are in space. Thanks to the boost from the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, the astronauts left Earth on Saturday afternoon.

At 3:22 p.m. ET., the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket fired up its engines and blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida. NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley were nestled in SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule.

“Let’s light this candle,” Hurley said just before liftoff, an homage to Alan Shepard’s quote from America’s first human spaceflight in 1961. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from the same launch pad used by Apollo astronauts that went to the moon a half-century ago.

After streaking through the sky at a speed of 17,000 mph, the first-stage Falcon 9 rocket broke away from the Crew Dragon capsule.

The Falcon 9 rocket, which is made by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company, successfully touched down on a floating landing pad barge a few hundred miles off the Florida coast.

Then the second-stage rocket detached from the Crew Dragon capsule. The two astronauts are scheduled to float in orbit for the next 19 hours until they arrive at the International Space Station on Sunday, where they will stay for up to four months.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence watched the historic launch at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This is the first-ever commercial manned mission to space.

The launch was originally scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, but it was canceled 17 minutes before liftoff because of inclement weather.

LIVE VIDEO: SpaceX and NASA launch astronauts to space from US soil for the first time in nearly a decade

SpaceX and NASA are teaming up to make history today by launching astronauts into space from U.S. soil for the first time since 2011.

The SpaceX Demo-2 launch, scheduled for liftoff at 4:33 p.m. EDT from the Kennedy Space Center in Merritt Island, Florida, will also mark the first time that a privately developed spacecraft has sent humans into Earth’s orbit.

The mission will send two astronauts to the International Space Station in a Crew Dragon spacecraft atop a Falcon 9 rocket. The Crew Dragon is expected to dock to the space station at 11:29 a.m. EDT tomorrow.

If successful, the launch will be SpaceX’s first crewed mission to outer space in the company’s 18-year history.

On its website, SpaceX described the Demo-2 launch as “the final major test for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station.”

The flight will be piloted by astronauts Bob Behnken, 49, and Doug Hurley, 53, both of whom served as military test pilots before being selected to join NASA in the year 2000. The two are longtime friends who attended each others’ weddings, according to CNN.

In a news conference ahead of the launch, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said “this is a dream come true” for him and everyone at SpaceX, and not something that he “ever thought would actually happen.”

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will be onsite at the Kennedy Space Center for the launch.

Watch the launch:

cooler Crops droughts Earth Emergency Preparedness famine Food food shortages Global Cooling Headline News Intelwars Magnetic Fields mini-ice age NASA official scientists preparations record setting Solar Minimum Sun sun spots

Sun Is Entering Solar Minimum & And Age Of Global Cooling

The evidence suggests that our sun is entering a phase called “solar minimum.”  That means the activity of the surface of the sun will be low and cause a cooling of the Earth. But NASA says don’t worry, redirect your attention to the virus and remain in panic mode.

There have been no sunspots for 100 days, which is the best evidence we have that the sun is entering its solar minimum. There has been talk on social media about an impending Ice Age, but NASA scientists have said we should not be overly worried, according to PennLive.comThe control freaks in power need you focused on the fear over a virus to complete their tyrannical takeover, so they don’t want you prepared for what could come during solar minimum.

The lack of sunspots shows that the sun is entering a period of low activity. “This is a sign that solar minimum is underway,” reads SpaceWeather.com. “So far this year, the Sun has been blank 76% of the time, a rate surpassed only once before in the Space Age. Last year, 2019, the Sun was blank 77% of the time. Two consecutive years of record-setting spotlessness adds up to a very deep solar minimum, indeed.”

The best bet is to be prepared for anything really.  Solar minimum can and has historically wreaked havoc on crops.  Freezing temperatures in places that don’t normally freeze can create famines. Droughts are common as well, meaning growing could be difficult. Prepare, don’t fear. All of this might happen, but none of it could also happen.

If you’ve already got some preparations in place for the government-induced food shortages coming up, you might be able to simply piggyback on those preps.

Scientists Warn: PREPARE NOW For A Mini ICE AGE As The Sun Cools

Ways to Prepare for a Solar Minimum

What can you do about it when the sun changes during this cycle? You can do plenty of things. Let’s go over a few of them.

  1. Pantry: Ensure that your Mason jars are wide-mouthed jars (that take a freeze), as much as possible. Ensure that all of your dry and canned goods are able to be warmed by a wood stove or moved into a room with a fireplace if there should be a power loss.
  2. Overall Food Supply: this encompasses canned and dry goods, as well as dehydrated, high-protein foods, is the way to go. Consider putting up a greenhouse as well.
  3. Water: remember that water in the winter under 32 degrees F is ice. Allow for some headspace (about ¼) in your water containers to allow for freezing. Move any water stored that is in danger of being frozen into an area above the freezing temperature. Have a way to take the ice and turn it into the water, and purify it.
  4. Winter Fuel: For years I have advocated cutting wood in the spring and curing it to cut and section in the fall. You should break out the chainsaws and if there are fire restrictions prohibiting its use, get out the ax and bow saw for a good workout along with the wood gathering. Any dead trees on your property and any fallen dead timber or standing dead timber (with a permit in a national or state forest) is fair game. Cut it now, while the cutting is possible.
  5. Vehicles Weatherized and Prepped: Now is a good time to top off all of the fluids, perform any maintenance, and get that vehicle ready to be your tool in the winter. Extra blankets and clothing in the car along with your BOB (bug-out bag) and supplies are necessary. Don’t forget a food supply that is either dehydrated or one that can take a freeze.
  6. Communications: Prep by investing in Motorolas for the family, CB radios for the vehicles and a base station, or long-range radios and a base station as well. Don’t forget to support it all with a generator and solar panels to charge batteries and to run radios from.
  7. Defense: Archery equipment and firearms are necessary for both hunting game, and also making sure that two-legged hunters don’t make your supplies their game if it hits the fan and there is a prolonged collapse.

Remember, if you are prepared, there is nothing to fear. In my experience, you would pretty much do the opposite of what the government tells you to do.  For example, “fear the virus” is all anyone is focusing on, so it’s it overblown out of proportion propaganda psych op to leave you paralyzed by fear.  Now, NASA and other “official scientists,” say we don’t have to worry about or prepare for a solar minimum.  That probably means it’s time to get a few preps in order if you haven’t already. The mainstream media puppets won’t tell you it’s time to prepare, because their job is to wait until they can use a topic to generate fear and manufacture consent for your enslavement.
