…And Guess Who Else Wants To Go To Mars?

To say that news lately has been a very strange mix of events would be putting it mildly, and in that vein we’ve seen the strange Antarctica stories, the Turkish invasion of Syria, heated phone calls between Mr. Putin and Mr. Erdogan, and the strange UFO flap over Turkey as the latter were going on.

There’s another story that emerged during this period, of a more mundane but not necessarily purely terrestrial nature.   Regular readers here are well aware of the stories – first a drip and now a steady trickle – about the privatization and commercialization of space, as there has been a steady flow of stories about asteroid mining and how to do it; about permanent, and large, manned space stations not just in low Earth orbit, but in far Earth orbit at the equigravisphere between the Earth and the Moon; about manned human missions to the Moon and Mars and about the permanent human colonization of the same(see, for example, this recent offering from Popular Science: How The First Private Landing On The Moon Could Move Humanity Forward A conversation with the founder of Moon Expressshared by Mr. R.M.); there have even been stories about the planning being done for government structures for those projects; there have been stories about the major powers beefing up their space war waging capabilities. All of these various stories we have covered  and blogged about here.

But guess who else – what other company wants to go to Mars?

Surprise, surprise, it’s Lockheed-Martin, according to this story shared once again by Mr. R.M.:

Lockheed Martin Wants To Send Humans To Mars In 12 Years Orbiting laboratory could pave the way for a landing party

Now, the interesting thing here is the “using existing publicly-known technologies” angle of the story, it’s possible to place six astronauts – still just a life-boat by all measures, but a veritable ocean liner compared to the two and three man capsules we were dealing with in the 1960s and 1970s – in orbit around Mars to conduct close-up manned orbital exploration of the Red Planet, and to coordinate from close range remote robotic surface explorations, without those pesky twenty or so minutes communications delays from Mars to Earth and back again:

You won’t find any suspended animation pods or magnetic shields on Lockheed’s spacecraft. As cool as those might be, Mars Base Camp relies on near-term technologies–equipment that’s already been proven or is in development now.

“All of these pieces exist today, they’re not brand new,” says Antonelli. “We’re taking advantage of what we’ve already got.”

Orion provides the brain of the vessel, providing navigation and communications. There’s also a backup Orion vehicle to ensure a getaway plan if the crew runs into trouble.

The two Orion capsules would link up with larger habitat and laboratory modules, which Lockheed is already in the process of developing, as well as solar panels to provide power.

The rationale here is self-evident:

Without the delay, and with real-time feedback, scientists can stop to look at features that they might have missed otherwise. Plus, the use of flying robots would allow NASA to explore Mars in a whole new way.

Needless to say, I’m more than somewhat skeptical of this story. It was Richard C. Hoagland and his co-author Mike Bara who, in their best-selling book Dark Mission, pointed out that NASA was chartered under the U.S. Department of Defense. In other words, in spite of its billing as a civilian agency, NASA was firmly placed within the orbit – to coin a pun – of the military-industrial complex of the USA. One can appreciate the reasons: at that time there was concern, enunciated in the Brookings Report on space matters, that we might encounter someone, or their (technological) artifacts out there, and hence, that the whole issue of space faring involved national security in a major way.

The point to draw from this is the close association of NASA with the Defense Department and therewith with the whole military-industrial-finance-intelligence complex. The same pattern we may be assured, holds true in all other nations with major space programs: Europe, Japan, Brazil, Russia, India, and China.

Segue from this association to the hearings during the G.W. Bush administration, where Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and his assistants were being grilled by Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney(D- GA.) not only on the Pentagon’s budget procedures, but on the fact that the Pentagon’s data processing contracts were almost exclusively in the hands of corporations like Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, and so on. In other words, the government was not processing its data, defense contractors were.

Move this pattern that Congresswoman McKinney attempted to penetrate into space, and we see the problem: what control over any collected data will the government have when the major systems for the manned exploration of Mars are largely in the hands of private corporation, especially so if the database management itself is in their hands? If the record of NASA Mars missions(or for that matter, even Moon missions) is recalled, there have been numerous controversies over the years of debates over NASA photos of those planets’ surfaces, and controversies over whether or not NASA released undoctored pictures or attempted to embargo them altogether. Many of the same defense companies were involved in…

Book Review: The Monuments Of Mars – A City On The Edge Of Forever

The Monuments Of Mars – A City On The Edge Of Forever by Richard C. Hoagland is a phenomenal expedition into much maligned subject of space oddities du jour.

Predictably, the subject of Mars and evidence of ruins in space of an ancient civilization is one of those subjects that polarizes people between the devout believers, and the skeptics.  Regardless of what people believe, however, Hoagland takes an incisive approach in outlining all the data he and his colleagues have collated that reveal that NASA has undertaken a cover up of enormous proportions.

Hoagland searches for artificial evidence from places such as “The Face” of Mars, which was discovered by the Viking Mission, and also gives an in-depth look at Cydonia.  In these locales he finds geometrically precise anomalies that should not be there whatsoever. 

Whether one agrees with Hoagland or not, his reasoned and logical approach is coherent, cogent, and exceptionally academic in its precision.  This man [and a whole community of researchers] has found compelling data that should be taken quite seriously about artificial structures in places like Mars, the Moon, Iapetus and more.

The author also makes a substantial case in connecting the Egyptian Great pyramid to Mars.  That in and of itself should be quite troublesome, because, as the author notes:

“…what were the random probabilities that there would exist two isolated worlds, both with “pyramids” and “sphinxes,” and now, that the one site on this planet where the most perfect, most archtypal forms still stand – Cairo – would also form the key linguistic bridge that links those worlds…!?“[1][Bold Emphasis Added]

Synchronistically enough, Cairo means Mars in arabic.  How about those
apples pyramids?

In its totality, this is a book that should have flipped everything we know about history, space, and more, on its face [no pun intended].   Of course, predictably, that didn’t happen.

Which was quite predictable given that the mainstream media is utterly controlled by a handful of corporations – literally [Click Here For More].

That’s why it’s up to individuals on the grassroots level to examine the book by themselves, and come up to their own conclusions.  That’s one of the only ways we as a society are going to get at the core of the truth.

Hoagland’s breathtaking venture into the fringe has definitely located some data gems that should taken quite seriously and examined at the minimum.  If only a sliver of what he says is true, everything in the history of mankind changes forever.
