NASA’s Maven Probe Diverted From Collision With Martian Moon…

Mr. M.B. sent this article, and I found it curious, to say the least, given all the attention that the little Martian moon Phobos generated a few years ago. Phobos is one of two Martian satellites, the other being Deimos, the pair being the Greek names for “Fear” and “Trembling,” respectively. The attention that Phobos generated years ago was due to the photographs of the European Space Agency (ESA) of the object, which included rectilinear features on the surface, straight lines of craters, and, from the ESA’s radar tomography of the object, two apparently large hollow cavities within it, which were, curiously enough, outgassing. The features were so curious that Russia attempted to launch a special probe, Phobos Grunt, which would land on the object and conduct further tests.

Surprisingly (or, perhaps, not so surprisingly) the Russian probe got no further than Earth orbit, and then malfunctioned. If you’ll recall, the malfunction itself summoned its own speculations at the time, including statements from Russian generals that in fact the probe had malfunctioned due to corrupted computer chips, and “strong radar interference” during its launch. The word “sabotage” was bandied about.  It was not the first time Russia (and other nations) have experienced the strange failure of a Martian probe, for one Russian probe, Phobos II, as it approached Mars, snapped a photograph of… well… of a “something” about 16 km in length, appearing to be a long cylinder of clearly artificial origin. Then, the probe went “silent.” The Russians, so alarmed, allegedly shared the Top Secret photograph with the Americans, and that at the height of the Cold War.

To be sure, the high strangeness of the little Martian moon does not stop there. In my book Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations (pp. 27-62), I pointed out a number of other curious things about the little Martian moon. For starters, it was not discovered until 1877 by the American astronomer Asaph Hall. The problem was, why did it take so long to discover it? The telescopic technology of the 18th century was adequate to the task, and indeed, the satirist Jonathan Swift stated, fully a century before their discovery, than Mars had two satellites, and he even gave their orbital periods with amazing accuracy, all of which implied a secret discovery, or, as one 20th century Russian astronomer (I.S. Shklovskii) put it, since they weren’t discovered until long after the telescopic technology existed to do so, this meant that they weren’t there. Implication: someone parked them there at a later period, until Asaph Hall discovered them.

So, in that context, consider the article Mr. M.B. shared with me:

NASA probe narrowly avoids collision with Martian moon Phobos

https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/245316-nasa-probe-executes-maneuver-avoid-collision-martian-moon-phobos/embed#?secret=MSDjc4QlPQ

Clearly, in the picture, if one looks carefully, one can see the rectilinearity of surface features, a faint line of craters, and so on. What intrigues me is the story itself, for according to it, one is left with the impression that NASA had to made some “last minute corrections” to the orbit of its MAVEN probe, lest Phobos and MAVEN collide, as the latter was “too close” to the little moon.

Uh huh…

I’m not buying it for a moment. I suspect, rather, that the probe was deliberately piloted to be as close as possible to the Martian satellite to take as many pictures as possible, and that the collision story is just that, a story designed to deflect attention from what may very well have been a quiet “reconnaissance” mission. Given the high strangeness surrounding the Martian satellite, one may perhaps be forgiven for a bit of really high octane speculation: perhaps NASA’s orbital insertion of the MAVEN probe was originally done correctly, and that the course correction was needed because either its orbit had somehow been altered, or Phobos’ was (the latter, of course, being quite improbable, for it would surely be noticed and reported by astronomers). Given the strange picture from Russia’s Phobos II probe of the strange cylindrical object, anything’s possible.

See you on the flip side…

Here’s One For The 3-D Printing Scrapbook

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 11, 2017

It has been a while since I’ve updated the 3d-printing scrapbook on this site, but not for want of stories about it. In fact, as we will discover this week, there is big news on this front, beginning with today’s story, which several readers here noticed and shared. Now, you may be wondering why I’ve put this story under the category of the “transhumanist scrapbook,” but we’ll get to that in a moment, for it has to do with today’s high octane speculation. 3-d printed structures have already been built in China, so what’s the fuss here? Here’s one version of this story that appeared at Zero Hedge:

This House Was 3D-Printed In Under 24 Hours At A Cost Of Just $10,000

OK… the “house” is not exactly a nice looking modern American middle class brick home with faux Tudor turrets and windows, but then again, those homes now cost as much as three-or-four modern overpriced automobiles that can be remote controlled and sent into trees if you or your family step out of line.   Ahhh… progress!

This cozy little place was only a little over $10,000, and that means, considerably less money than a new car, and unlike other structures made from “additive manufacturing,” this one was not printed elsewhere and assembled on the spot, but printed right on the spot.  With a little extra money, I’m sure a basement could have been dug out and a basement printed as well for those requiring shelter during tornado season in Russia (remember,  they get them too).

But just allow your mind to wander a bit, and speculate on all the implications: suppose they perfect all this and can print your modern American middle class brick home with faux Tudor turrets and windows… at a fraction of the cost (that is to say, for the price of just one – not several – of the modern over-priced automobiles that can be remote controlled and sent into trees if you or your family step out of line). What’s brought down the cost? Once again, it’s labor productivity that has been drastically reduced.  Now let your imagination really go: imagine printing roads with the process. Indeed, why have humans driving the equipment that digs the roadbeds at all? This can be done with automatically controlled vehicles. Another robot printer can print the frames for the concrete pouring, and another can then pour the concrete. Few, or no, humans needed. Cost of making or even repairing and maintaining the road? Drastically reduced. Why? Labor productivity has once again declined, dramatically.

Speculate further: if it is simple houses today, why not high-rises? As the article states, apartment buildings have already been constructed in China using parts printed by 3-d printing. But now imagine doing it on the spot – as with this little house – and today’s erection cranes give way to tomorrow’s 3-d printing modules, and high rises could conceivably go up not in a matter of weeks, but possibly just days. And again, at a fraction of the cost. Why? Once again, because of the decline of the costs of labor productivity.

And of course, there is the application of the same technology for space purposes; already NASA and other space agencies are looking at the process not only for printing spare parts in space for simple repairs, but looking much farther ahead to the possibilities of using the process to construct permanent human habitation and working spaces off-world. And the black projects world has a wonderful new technology to play with in their underground bases and tunnels, a boon not only to the elimination of labor productivity and maintenance costs, but, as human labor production requirements fall, so do the security risks as fewer people are “in the know.” As I’ve stated before, I strongly suspect that additive manufacturing comes out of the black world, since the process has been around for a long time(decades, if one really digs into it), and it probably much more advanced in that black projects world than is evident in the public one. (And here’s a thought to ponder, why in the past few years has 3-d printing been being “driven” into the public consciousness by stories such as these?)

So why belabor all of this? Because again traditional economic models of analysis will have to be drastically revised. Typically, housing is one area that has been looked at as an indicator of the economy’s health and the employment market. When houses are built, people are spending, and people are employed building them. But with the progress and advances in the additive manufacturing process and the low cost of building a house manufactured on the spot, more people who cannot now build or afford a home will be able to do so. Thus, a housing market can expand, without the hitherto typical expansion of employment. Hence, for those making such models and emphasizing the need to shift back to a production economy, a problem is posed: how does one increase production when labor productivity is falling due to technological progress? What does one do with the decrease of jobs once filled by humans?

As I’ve argued before, there must be a dramatic increase in human productivity.

Space X To Fly Two Around Moon

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 9, 2017

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s been a lot of “space-related” news in my high octane speculations this past week, and today is no different. Mr. P.K. and many others shared this story, which I find intriguing for a number of reasons, not the least being my recent two part blog earlier this week about BREXIT, Commonwealth revivification, and the United Kingdom’s plans to build a space port to test health effects of low or zero gravity (at least, that was the cover story, though after years of the operation of the International Space station, many of these effects are already known).

But there’s another aspect to this emerging “project,” for that’s what we have to call it, and that is this story:

SpaceX to fly two tourists around Moon in 2018

Note the opening paragraphs:

US private rocket company SpaceX has announced that two private citizens have paid to be sent around the Moon.

The mission is planned for late 2018, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said, adding that the tourists “have already paid a significant deposit”.

“This presents an opportunity for humans to return to deep space for the first time in 45 years,” he said.

The two unnamed people will fly aboard a spaceship which is set for its first unmanned test flight later this year.

Mr Musk said the co-operation of America’s Nasa space agency had made the plan possible.

He said the two passengers “will travel faster and further into the solar system than any before them”.

Mr Musk declined to reveal their identities, only saying that they knew each other and that “it’s nobody from Hollywood”.

As the BBC observes later in the article, this is an aggressive schedule.

But the purpose is not, to be sure, simply to provide a stunt. This is a crucial test of the viability of the commercialization of space and of private companies to provide safe transportation of humans, and to minimize risk. Even should the plan fail – and we certainly hope not as lives are at stake – there will be another attempt, and another, until the process and technology are made secure.

OK… that much is obvious. But where’s the high octane (or in this case, truly orbital and interplanetary) speculation here? I strongly suspect that there is much more going on  – in between the lines – here than meets the eye. Mr. Musk is, of course, from South Africa, which has in its turn strong ties to Great Britain and indeed to the British Commonwealth. And as I’ve argued previously this week, Britain’s plans to revivify the Commonwealth, including even “associate membership” for the USA, needs a project, and as I argued, the UK’s space plans are ambitious; space is Britain’s Commonwealth project.

And we have the same players, more or less, limned out here: the USA, in the form of NASA’s cooperation with Mr. Musk’s orbit-humans-around-the-Moon project, Mr. Musk, private businessman from South Africa.

It will be interesting, in other words, to see what country or countries Mr. Musks lunar passengers are from.  The United Kingdom, anyone?

Scientists reveal: Our Galaxy alone has at least 100 BILLION PLANETS!

Source: Ancient-Code.com
March 7, 2017

Just within our Galaxy the Milky Way, astronomers say there are at least 400 BILLION STARS—even though some believe stars in the milky way number the trillion, which means that the Milky Way alone is home to at least 100 BILLION planets.


Due to the fact that Astronomers are unable to take a peek at our galaxy from the outside, it’s nearly impossible to know the exact number of planets in our galaxy. This means that scientists are forced to make estimates of the number of worlds within the Milky Way.

To understand the number of planets hiding in our galaxy, scientists calculate the Milky Way’s mass, and estimate of how much of the mass is composed of Stars. Based on these mathematical calculations, scientists are confided that the Milky Way is home to roughly 400 BILLION STARS—even though some believe stars in the milky way number the trillion—which means that the Milky Way alone is home to at least 100 BILLION planets, although many astronomers agree that this number could rise as our observational techniques get better.

According to Universe Today, we can then say that the Milky Way galaxy has – on average – between 800 billion and 3.2 trillion planets, with some estimates placing that number as high as 8 trillion.

NASA indicates that there is likely to be at least 1,500 planets within just 50 light-years of Earth.

Based on a statistical analysis of all the Kepler observations, UC Berkeley and University of Hawaii, Manoa, astronomers now estimate that one in five stars like the sun have planets about the size of Earth and a surface temperature conducive to life.

Based on geometric-based methods, or measuring specific astronomical objects, our Sun is located around 25,000–28,000 ly (7.7–8.6 kpc) from the Galactic Center.

Check out NASA’s Exoplanets Archive to learn more about the exact number of confirmed exoplanets.

Now remember, we are talking about the Milky Way Galaxy alone. In comparison, the neighboring Andromeda Galaxy contains an estimated one trillion (1012) stars.

Jason Marshall, aka “The Math Dude,” has calculated that there are roughly 5 sextillion grains of sand on all our planet’s beaches combined. So take every grain of sand on every beach on Earth and you can begin to be able to actually visualize how many planets we’re talking about. Then you begin to wonder why we aren’t overrun with aliens. (source)

NASA’s Kepler space telescope has been one of the most important tools for discovering alien worlds.

Based on Kepler space mission data, astronomers believe there could be as many as 40 BILLION Earth-sized planets orbiting habitable zones of Sun-like stars and red dwarfs in the Milky Way alone. Interestingly, astronomers say that around 11 billion may be orbiting Sun-like Stars.

The nearest such planet may be 4.2 light-years away, according to a 2016 study.

Brexit, Britain & A Renewed Commonwealth: Yes, But What’s The…

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 6, 2017

Yesterday I outlined my hypothesis that Great Britain’s next move after the BREXIT would be to revive the British Commonwealth of Nations and use it, and its position on China’s Asia Infrastructure Development Bank, as a soft-power culture-power card to reshape the political and economic landscape of the West, and as I noted, that nation is toying with the idea of making the USA an “associate member,” an idea that appears at least at present to have the ear of the Trump Administration.

But as I also stated at the end of yesterday’s part one blog on this topic, such a revival would need a unifying “project,” and that project, to my high octane speculation lights, appears to be provided in the second article on this topic, that was shared by Mr. S.D.:

UK scientists could soon fly into space and conduct medical experiments in zero gravity

The article contains a zinger – at least by my high octane speculation lights – in the opening paragraphs, mentioned almost in passing, as the focus of the rest of the article is about “medical experiments in zero gravity.” This, as far as I am concerned, is a bit of fluffy noise to distract from what may be the real game plan:

British scientists could soon fly into space to conduct cutting edge medical experiments in zero gravity, thanks to new laws, which are slated to make way for a new era of scientific research. According to the UK Space Agency, the new regulations as well as funding will potentially see Britain constructing its very first spaceport by 2020.

“Laws paving the way for spaceports in the UK will allow ‎experiments to be conducted in zero gravity which could help develop medicines,” the space agency said in a statement. The construction of a spaceport would enable the UK to launch its own satellites and conduct “horizontal flights to the edge of space for scientific experiments”.

I contend that this focus on space – a space port, no less – enabling “the UK to launch its own satellites and conduct ‘horizontal flights to the edge of space'”(forget about that “scientific experiments part’), is the unifying project for that revivified space port.

From the standpoint of the emerging multipolar world, this makes geopolitical and financial sense, for Britain (and the Commonwealth) will need its own secure and independent financial clearing, and mutual sharing agreements on a whole host of electronic information sharing are already in place among the Commonwealth nations, and with the USA.

The mention of a commercial and financial aspect to all of this is worth pondering a bit further: a sustainable “space port” would tax that nation’s economy in the short run, but with the participation of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and perhaps even India in some form of fashion, those costs could be diffused and all would gain long term benefits. The second factor here is the growing commercialization in space. As readers of this website are aware, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has already passed legislation similar to American laws recently passed allowing corporations to keep the profits of whatever they “find and mine” out in space, and I strongly suspect that similar bills will work their way through the parliaments of the Commonwealth countries. Indeed, if this is that “unifying project”, one should expect a great degree of coordination in the wording of any putative bills in those nations.

And if that happens, then of course it’s an indicator that this is, indeed, the project that will take center stage in any efforts for Commonwealth revivification; and it’s essentially a win-win for those countries – Australia and Canada chief among them – that have the technological sophistication along with the United Kingdom itself to make it work.

As always, time will tell if this reading of these articles and events is correct.

Recent Declassified Documents About Mars Discuss A Pyramid & A Lost Civilization 1 MILLION Years Ago

Late spring on Mars (centered on roughly 305 degrees longitude).
TheBreakaway
Zy Marquiez
February 23, 2017

For quite a long time, Mars has served as a place of wonder.

In fiction, there have been many authors that have sparked the imagination of individuals in respect to the red planetary body.  It can be argued, however, that The War Of The Worlds, by H.G. Wells, was perhaps the quintessential turn in fiction which served to firmly inculcate consistent focus on the ancient Red Planet.  Another notable writer, Edgar Rice Burroughs, added to the Red Planet mythos when he published A Princess Of Mars, which was part of part of a series of stories he published on the red planet.

In modern times, it has been argued, that in addition to Mars containing pyramids on its surface, the red planet also contains a face on its surface.

Former NASA consultant, researcher, author and writer Richard C. Hoagland covers in his highly intriguing book, The Monuments Of Mars – A City On The Edge Of Forever [review here] that Mars features extensive evidence for artificial edifices, which do not seem natural in form, as well as many other anomalies which have mathematical properties on the surface.

To add a few more buckets of fuel onto the embers of the subject of Mars, the CIA recently declassified documents on Mars, which will undoubtedly bring forth much rumination and speculation.

The recent declassified CIA document in question is named “CIA-RDP96-00788R001900760001-9“.  This document is aptly titled Mars Exploration.  This declassification by the CIA was part of an extensive declassification of documents that took place in January, which cover a variety of highly thought-provoking topics.

Dating back to May 22, 1984, the document purports to be a transcript of an experiment conducted a few decades ago which attempted to remote view Mars approximately at approximately 1 Million years B.C.

Before continuing, as a preamble, it’s highly intriguing, and profoundly suggestive, that each of the exact coordinates that were given yielded rather astonishing results.  The possibility of this being a ‘random’ remote viewing probe ceases to decrease, and the probability of it being a follow up remote view and reconnaissance session at that time  increases quite drastically.  If this contention is correct, Mars would have to have been under some type of remote viewing surveillance for at least some time.  That’s just my personal speculation however.

After beginning to remote view the object, the subject begins:

rvm1
As we can gather, the remote viewer has spotted what seems to be a pyramid-like structure, which could go on to corroborate the possibility of there being pyramids on Mars, as covered by Richard C. Hoagland in his book.

After proceeding to new coordinates, the subject covers another notable point in the document, which is quite evocative:

rvm2

As we can gather, we begin by noting that there is an object that seems like an obelisk found, which is very peculiar to say the least.  However,the fact that the CIA individual that was  prompting the remote viewer made no effort to spend additional time on the object [or the pyramid for that matter], which should have put their suspicion meter into the red zone, leads me to believe that this particular remote viewing session, or at least this particular coordinate reading, was carried out to confirm previous readings carried out prior to this.

Ironically, a place on Earth where we see Pyramids and an obelisk is Egypt.  Now, to double-down, or triple-down on our ‘coincidences’, let’s take a gander at an excerpt that was published in the renown Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, which contained a chapter heading named, Signpost to Mars.  This was mentioned by Richard C. Hoagland, in his book The Monuments Of Mars – A City On The Edge Of Forever:

“One of the weirdest coincidences of the whole affair is that Cairo, the site of the (two greatest) pyramids, was originally named El-Kahira, from the Arabic El-Kahir – “Meaning Mars…””[1]

As Richard C. Hoagland excitedly intimates:

“Again – 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 archetypal form still stand – Cairo – would also form the key linguistic bridge that links those worlds…!?”[2][Bold Emphasis Added]

It surely boggles the mind, does it not?

Now, getting back on track, let’s take a look at the last tidbit of evidence which moves these ‘coincidences’ from the realm of randomness, and into the realm of coordination, by taking a gander at the last peculiar bit of data:

rvm3
rvm4

Although the document alludes to many different topics which that be covered, for our purposes, we will focus only on the fact that the document speaks of there being an ancient civilization that lived on Mars.  The remote viewer himself states that he perceived them to be ancient people.

A pyramid, an obelisk, and a civilization, all on Mars, all covered within a declassified CIA document.  What else does the Red Planet harbor within its confines?

Admittedly, remote viewing isn’t an exact science, and it’s more like an art, but this document isn’t the only piece of evidence showcasing oddities on Mars.

In fact, the book The Cydonia Codex – Reflections from Mars by George J. Haas & William R. Saunders [Review Here] brings forth extensive evidence for there being a correlation between geoglyphs on mars, and geoglyphs found throughout the Earth.  Some of the cultures that feature these geoglyphs on Earth are the Aztec, the Olmec, Maya and more.[3]

Lastly, but surely not less important, plasma physicist, and former NASA employee, Dr. John Brandenburg Ph.D., has postulated that Mars contains evidence of a nuclear catastrophe in its past.  Dr. Brandenburg came to this particular conclusion based on the fact that Mars contains Xenon-129, thorium and uranium, which are elements that are not of natural origins, and only come about from what he postulates as nuclear explosions, in extremely enormous yields.

For more information on Dr. Brandenburg’s hypothesis, please watch the presentation below, which took place at the Secret Space Program & Breakaway Civilization Conference in Bastrop Texas, in 2015, which yours truly was lucky enough to attend.  If you have any interest in these types of subjects, there are many more presentations which took place at the conference from many notable speakers such as Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, Jim Marrs, Catherine Austin Fitts, and more, all of which are just as intriguing as this one, albeit covering a variety of topics, and which have resounding implications.

Historic discovery: NASA finds a Solar system with SEVEN Earth-like planets

Source: Ancient-Code.com
February 23, 2017

Astronomers have detected SEVEN Earth-like planets orbiting a star called Trappist-1. According to scientists, all seven planets are very similar to Earth and have oceans of liquid water on their surface. Three of the alien worlds are so perfect that scientists say LIFE may have already evolved on them.


NASA has just announced a historic discovery as Astronomers have found a star system with seven Earth-like planets. Scientists may have finally found a star system in which we’ll have our FIRST contact with extraterrestrial life.

The Seven Earth-like planets have been found orbiting a nearby dwarf star called ‘Trappist-1’, and ALL of them have WATER—a key component for life—on their surface.

In fact, three of the alien worlds are so perfect that scientists say LIFE may have already evolved on them.

According to reports, TRAPPIST-1 barely classifies as a star at half the temperature and a tenth the mass of our sun. It is a red, dim star and is just a bit larger than Jupiter.

“I think we’ve made a crucial step towards finding if there is life out there,” said Amaury Triaud, one of the study authors and an astronomer at the University of Cambridge. “I don’t think anytime before we had the right planets to discover and find out if there was (life). Here, if life managed to thrive and releases gasses similar to what we have on Earth, we will know.”

Scientists say that these conditions give the planets—located 39 light years from Earth— vital atmospheric composition in order to host life as we know it.

“This is the most exciting result I have seen in the 14 years of Spitzer operations,” said Sean Carey, manager of NASA’s Spitzer Science Center at Caltech/IPAC in Pasadena, California. “Spitzer will follow up in the fall to further refine our understanding of these planets so that the James Webb Space Telescope can follow up. More observations of the system are sure to reveal more secrets.”

The most important thing is that experts believe that three of these planets—located in the star’s habitable zone—probably have oceans just like those on Earth, with life evolving on them already.

The study’s lead author Michaël Gillon of the STAR Institute at the University of Liège in Belgium was delighted with the results: “It’s a surprising planetary system, not only because we have found so many planets, but because they are all strikingly similar in size to the Earth.”

“We now have seven planets that we can study in detail for life, and this is something we are already doing, people will hear more and more about this system in the coming months and years.”

All of the planets—labelled 1b-1h—orbiting Trappist-1 were found using the ‘transit’ method: When the orbit and characteristics of the planets are measured as they transit in front of their star, causing it to dim. Both space-based and Earth-based satellites were used to make the discovery.
