Space life.

Animation picture]

Ok, this post is about rambling, thoughts, imagination, whats happening, why, how long, who, what if, perhaps and maybe.
What do you do when the think space is thinning and thinning, does she care, does she like space ships, is it important to keep thinking about warm tea on the inside of a woman's mouth, is it possible to make mud in space and would it fight off space rashes in compromising positions, who would be the first petrol company in space, would it be possible to make petrol in space and how many calories has a big mac got in a fart [for air conditioning purposes aboard a space ship]?

I guess a lot of the people around the space business haven't heard about the new tax which is affecting international sportsman, it is a situation that is affecting the number of performances and places people could actually visit to ply their profession. It is testament to the continuing development of law which attempts to do a job of covering sneaky little catches ''or'' were they designed as some of us think during the heat of the moment to thwart our attempts to forge relevant careers.

Anyway, this example gives us the opportunity to wonder what sort of tax advantages would commuting from a planetoid have, obviously because being a galactic citizen would require a tax bracket for people to not necessarily or necessarily need visas for international clearance entitlements? Would they?

Hopefully performance relies on a sportsman's need to compete as opposed to a sportsman's need to win regardless...

Gravitational law tax brackets?

Right? Right you are then...

Gangs Increasing in Military, FBI Says

McClatchy-Tribune Information Services

A group of nine gathered, ready for an initiation.
Juwan Johnson of Baltimore, Md., willingly took a savage beating to join the Chicago-based gang Gangster Disciples. He was punched, kicked and stomped until he was barely conscious. After the beating, his new brothers put Johnson back in bed where he later died from his injuries.
This did not happen in a back alley of a gang-infested urban city. It took place at Kaiserslautern Army Base in Germany.
In 2005, the decorated 25-year old Army sergeant was killed after completing a tour of Iraq because he wanted to join a gang -- one he found while in the military.
According to an FBI published report, "gang-related activity in the U.S. military is increasing and poses a threat to law-enforcement officials and national security."
The report, released in February 2007, noted that members of nearly every major street gang -- including MS-13, Bloods, Crips, 18th Street, Hells Angels and various white supremacist groups -- have been identified on both domestic and international military bases.
"It really is not secret that gangs are in the Army," said Hector Ordonez, 39, a former resident of Victorville who was in the Army from 1989 to 1994. "There were a few guys in my unit from Los Angeles and a couple from Chicago."
"We don't have that issue out here," said John Wagstaffe, director of public affairs for Fort Irwin. "It surprises me, based on the fact that we are so close to L.A."
Wagstaffe went on to say that most gang members tend to be younger and because of the high number of officers at Fort Irwin, it was not a problem.
There are no official statistics on gang membership in the military, but some experts have estimated that 1 to 2 percent of the U.S. military are gang members, FBI gang investigator Jennifer Simon said in a published article. It is believed that only .02 percent of the U.S. population are gang members.
"Gang membership in the U.S. Armed Forces is disproportional to the U.S. population," she added.
Some experts have calculated that out of every 100 people who enter the military, two have some sort of gang affiliation.
One reason why more gang members are getting into the military is recruiting practices.
"As this war continues, recruiters have to drop their standards," said retired Los Angeles County Sheriff Sgt. Richard Valdemar, who is a gang expert and trains various law-enforcement agencies across the country about gangs and gangs in the military.
Valdemar attributes this to variances.
"This is where (recruiters) are allowed to break the rules of recruitment, and this happens mainly in the Army and the Marines," Valdemar commented.
Between 2003 and 2006, the Armed Forces permitted 4,230 convicted criminals into the Army, according to an investigation by the Michael D. Palm Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Also admitted during that time were 58,561 people with drug use.
"As to recruiter impropriety, our practice is not to condone it," said Lt. Col. George Wright with the Army Public Affairs office in Washington, D.C. He went on to say that the number of known gang members is not a demographic group for which the Army keeps statistics.
In the Army, allowable offenses include making threats and kidnapping, according to Army Regulation 601-210.
According to a fact sheet released by the U.S. Armed Forces, since 2003 there have been at least 104 gang investigations conducted by the Criminal Investigation Command Department since 2003.
"The number of gang-related felonies continues to be an extremely small percentage of the overall number of CID investigations Army-wide," according to the statement.
But some gang experts see that number as flawed.
"That is because most military bases don't have the expertise to identify gang members," Valdemar said. "Also, most of the gang activity occurs off base."
As evidence of this fact, Hunter Glass, a former police detective in Fayetteville, N.C., has several pictures and even a video of military personnel throwing gang signs while on patrol, scrawling graffiti on walls and tanks in Iraq and even two men performing a Cripwalk for Iraqi children.
At an international antigang police summit in Los Angeles in March, some officials were split about whether gang members have infiltrated the U.S. military.
"These are just rumors," said Christy McCampbell, deputy assistant secretary for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
But at the summit, Martin Escorza, head of the National Gang Task Force, said the issue is real.
"Even with all this, the military will still say there is no gang problem," said Glass, who monitors gang activity at Fort Bragg and across the military. "Gangs are a bad word, but the truth is that gangs are real, they do exist and they are a huge part of our society as well as in the military."

Cheap guns flow from a few factories to many crime scenes

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- The grayish brown one-story building in a quiet industrial park next to the John Wayne-Orange County Airport appears boring and nondescript. It rarely draws a second look. But this is the manufacturing headquarters for Bryco Arms, a leading maker of cheap handguns. The plant is at the center of a national storm. Inside, Bryco workers can turn out 6,000 handguns a day. The guns they make are small and inexpensive, retailing for $85 or less. The guns are frequently involved in crime, or suspected of it, according to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Bryco Arms is one of a handful of gun manufacturers around Los Angeles dubbed the "Ring of Fire," a name taken from volcanoes that ring the Pacific Ocean. Most of the Ring of Fire companies are owned by members of a single extended family -- the Jennings. Together, they've cornered the market on small, cheap handguns, often called "junk guns" or "Saturday Night Specials." Gun-control advocates are pushing legislation in Washington, in state capitals and in city councils to ban these weapons. Bruce Jennings, whose late father, George, launched the first Ring of Fire company in 1970, calls himself "the leading expert in the world on Saturday Night Specials." Jennings rejects charges that his family's cheap guns play a greater role in crime than guns made by up-scale manufacturers. But a lot of evidence goes against him. Each year the ATF traces thousands of guns that are illegally owned, were used in crime, or are suspected of being used in crime. While the ATF traces only a sampling of crime guns nationwide, Ring of Fire guns are consistently among the firearms most frequently forwarded to the ATF for tracing. For example, in 1995, the most recent year for which statistics about nationwide traces are available, six kinds of guns made by Ring of Fire firms were on the ATF's list of the 10 most frequently traced guns. The Ring of Fire name was first applied to the companies by Dr. Garen J. Wintemute, a public health professor at the University of California at Davis, who studies the links between the guns they produce and crime. The group included Bryco, Raven Arms, the now-defunct company George Jennings started, as well as Davis Industries, Phoenix Arms and Sundance Industries, which are all owned by Jennings' relatives, and Lorcin Engineering Co., owned by James N. Waldorf, a high school friend of Bruce Jennings. The companies were notably absent in early October, when eight U.S. gun manufacturers announced at the White House that they would include childproof trigger locks with each handgun they sell. Several factors -- chiefly price, materials and manufacturing process -- distinguish the firearms they make from the bulk of those produced by so-called "main line" American gun manufacturers such as Colt and Smith & Wesson. For example, Smith & Wesson is now pitching the Lady Smith for the growing crop of women with permits to carry concealed handguns. The 9 mm pistol, made of stainless steel and aluminum alloy, weighs 25 ounces, with a suggested retail price of $651. By contrast, Lorcin boasts that it produces "the world's most affordable handguns." The Mira Loma, Calif., company's guns wholesale for as little as $38. Bryco's current best seller is the Bryco 38, a 16-ounce .380-caliber pistol made of plastic and dyecast zinc, with a suggested retail price of $96. Jennings says his family's companies are "volume producers" that rely on "modern manufacturing methods." Employees do a minimum of hand-machining work and instead spend most of their time assembling pre-cut pieces. But Jennings denies critics' contentions that those methods make the family product unsafe and unreliable for people who buy them to protect themselves. "I take serious offense when someone says these are poorly made, low-quality," Jennings says, leading a tour through the 50,000-square-foot plant. Shots are heard in the background from one of five small, narrow firing rooms, as an employee test-fires one magazine from each gun that's completed. Finished guns are packed in boxes and hauled in 18-wheeler trucks to Carson City, Nev., where Bruce Jennings runs B.L. Jennings Inc., which markets and distributes Bryco's products under the brand name Jennings.
After a tangle of legal woes and a messy divorce, his ex-wife, Janice Jennings, became president of Bryco. "My personal life is not gold-plated," he says. "My business life is." Jennings says he knows the family trade is "the black sheep of the industry," with a reputation for putting small, cheap guns in criminals' hands.

But he calls the entrepreneurial achievement "an American dream."

"The success of the inexpensive pistol ... is a phenomenon that can only be explained by the public demand," Jennings says.

Jennings says he doesn't carry a gun, but he staunchly defends the rights of others to do so.

He accuses Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and others who are trying to outlaw small, inexpensive handguns of waging a kind of class warfare.

Boxer insists she is targeting the guns because they are poorly made and unsafe, not because they are inexpensive.

Guns should meet basic safety standards, she says, just as cars and toys do.

So far, 34 California cities, towns and counties have outlawed sales of the cheap guns. Gov. Pete Wilson vetoed a measure this fall that would have banned them throughout the state. Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota and South Carolina have already adopted similar bans.

Ironically, it was a 1968 federal gun-control law that prompted George Jennings to get into the gun business in the first place.

That measure, enacted on the heels of the assassinations of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., effectively banned imports of small, inexpensive handguns by requiring foreign-made handguns sold in the United States to meet strict standards on size, weight, materials and safety features.

Those standards weren't applied to guns manufactured within the United States, effectively insulating domestically produced guns from foreign competition.

A friend who owned a small gun and pawn shop complained to George Jennings, "I can't buy these guns any more, and I used to sell 500 of them a month." At the time, the senior Jennings was running a machine shop that made parts for Southern California aerospace companies.

"My dad said, `Hell, I can build those (guns),' " Bruce Jennings recalls.

Raven Arms was born, specializing in the Raven pistol, a .25-caliber gun he had designed. Over the next 20 years, the company sold about 2 million guns.

Raven isn't in business any more.

But Wintemute, the public health professor, says the company has a potent legacy.

Using ATF trace data and firearms production records, Wintemute concluded in a 1994 book that Ring of Fire guns are 3.4 times as likely to be involved in a crime as handguns from other major firearms makers.

"When we compare risk per gun, guns from these companies are in a class by themselves," Wintemute says.

A new ATF study, in which all crime guns collected in 17 cities over 10 months were traced, bolsters Wintemute's findings. Traces of more than 37,000 guns from those cities show that Ring of Fire guns were often involved in crime.

In addition, two semiautomatic pistols produced by Bryco and two made by Lorcin were on the ATF's top-10 list of guns recovered from people up to age 24 with the fastest "time-to-crime." Time-to-crime measures the gap between the purchase of a firearm from a gun shop and its recovery as a crime gun by law enforcement officials. A short time-to-crime may be an indication that the guns are being illegally trafficked, according to the ATF.

Lorcin's Waldorf objects to top-10 lists like that because he said they don't reflect the high number of guns he sells every year. "It's like saying more Chevys are in accidents than Mercedes. Of course, there's more Chevys out there! We can honestly say that 98 percent of what we sell is in somebody's dresser drawer at home for a legitimate purpose," he adds.

Sheriff Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. of Arapahoe County, Colo., isn't surprised by the findings. "The cheaper they are, the easier access it is to buy them, whether it's the black market, on the streets or over the counter," he says.

David M. Kennedy, director of the Boston Gun Project, which coordinates community activities to control guns and reduce gang violence, says there's no doubt that "these guns are popular, they're cheap, and they are disproportionately used in crime." But Kennedy says outlawing them could simply lead people to buy used handguns instead. For about the same price as a new Ring of Fire gun, Kennedy says a gun buyer could instead purchase a more powerful, higher quality used gun.

As she pursues federal legislation, Sen. Boxer wants domestically produced handguns to meet the same size, quality, materials and safety standards that foreign-made guns must under the 1968 law.

Other Saturday Night Special bans, like those adopted by the 34 California communities, rely on a list, or roster, of specific handguns that may not be sold.

Using either a roster or the import standards, there's little doubt that the vast majority of Ring of Fire firearms would be outlawed by Saturday Night Special bans. Other gun manufacturers would likely feel only a slight effect, with only their tiniest models unable to meet minimum size requirements.

Industry officials, at least in public, are united in their opposition to such proposals.

Jack C. Adkins, director of operations for the American Shooting Sports Council, a firearms industry group, said manufacturers of high-quality guns believe that if Ring of Fire products are outlawed today, their products could be on the hit list tomorrow.

While they've clearly been targeted by current gun-control efforts, Ring of Fire officials seem confident they'll weather the storm.

"They cannot put me out of business," Bruce Jennings says.

Bryco has developed a new 9 mm pistol, the Jennings Nine, which he says could meet the standards the 1968 law imposed on foreign-made guns. Bryco has also developed a laser-sighted 9 mm pistol, which Jennings says could also meet the standards for imported guns. Like other Bryco products, he says both would be much less expensive than the competition.

Jennings expects both to be ready for sale this fall.

Lorcin's Waldorf is also confident. "We will manufacture whatever it is the government allows us to manufacture," he says.

Hopefully terrorism does not follow our race into space, I'm not sure why people would want to commit acts of atrocious terror on each other on our beautiful planet though it is obvious that some people really take liberties, and some of them continue taking liberties while knowing they are being cruel, all through history thankfully we have defeated wicked trend though we all fear the continueing barage of people who become estranged for some reason, government have rightly chosen not to tellerate terrorism, and, I want to use this opportunity to say that terrorism exists in many forms and particularly is it frustrating for people who are little in towns or villages with ancient relious beleifs that have been invaded unjustly because of unacceptable communication with them, it is important to remember that what many people consider the old world does not value the judges word which is very very often based upon the amount of money accredited, it is in that we need learn vital lessons about creed and the development of concensus among communities functioning from different bases of sociology, but, I do envisage men carefully nurturing relationships much the same way that those of you who have read the Greek philosophers actually influenced sociol interaction and development thousands of years ago.

Now will be an era when the opinion of the people with philosophy degrees will be much needed for negotiations as its intricacy relates to gentle coersion.

Obama Supports Possible Limits on Space Weapons

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

The White House yesterday released a space policy that indicates U.S. support for potential international measures to restrict the preparation of space-based armaments, the New York Times reported.

(Jun. 29) - A U.S. Standard Missile 3 interceptor lifts off in February 2008 in a successful attempt to destroy a disabled U.S. military satellite. The Obama administration yesterday indicated it was interested in negotiating international limitations on orbital weapons (U.S. Navy/Getty Images).
"Our policy reflects the ways in which our imperatives and our obligations in space have changed in recent decades," U.S. President Barack Obama said in a statement. "No longer are we racing against an adversary; in fact, one of our central goals is to promote peaceful cooperation and collaboration in space, which not only will ward off conflict, but will help to expand our capacity to operate in orbit and beyond" (White House release, June 28).
In a notable divergence from his predecessor's space stance, Obama's policy states the United States would "consider proposals and concepts for arms control measures if they are equitable, effectively verifiable, and enhance the national security of the United States and its allies," according to a White House fact sheet. The United States should "lead in the enhancement of security, stability and responsible behavior in space," the policy says.
Former President George W. Bush, by contrast, maintained a position that "rejects any limitations on the fundamental right of the United States to operate in and acquire data from space," and opposed "the development of new legal regimes or other restrictions that seek to prohibit or limit U.S. access or use of space."
“The [Obama] arms control language is bipartisan language that appeared in the Reagan policy and George H.W. Bush’s policy and the Clinton policy,” the Times quoted National Security Council Space Policy Director Peter Marquez as saying. “So we’re bringing it back to a bipartisan agreed-upon position."
An arms control proposal's even-handedness, ability to benefit U.S. security, and inclusion of monitoring terms would act as "the gates" for consideration by the administration, Marquez said.
The document released yesterday “sets the stage for progress in space arms control -- without getting into specifics,” Arms Control Association analyst Jeff Abramson added. Some arms control advocates accused Bush of slowing progress on space weapons treaty at the international Conference on Disarmament (see GSN, June 7).
China and the United States each shot down one of their disused satellites during tests in 2007 and 2008, respectively, prompting concerns about a potential buildup in antisatellite capabilities that could undermine U.S. security interests due to Washington's heavy reliance on space-based military technology (see GSN, April 1, 2008). The Bush administration backed studies capable of supporting work on a ground-based antisatellite laser, according to some opponents of the research (Broad/Chang, New York Times).
"This policy clearly articulates the right space policies and priorities for our nation, and is also a pledge that the United States will maintain the leadership and capabilities in space imperative for our national security," Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in released remarks.
"Changes in the space environment over the last decade challenge our operations. Today, space is increasingly contested as our systems face threats of disruption and attack, increasingly competitive as more states, private firms, and others develop space-based capabilities," Gates said.
"Together with other departments and agencies, the Department of Defense will take a number of steps to support the new National Space Policy, and will work with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to develop a strategy document to address specific national security requirements for outer space. We will look to leverage growing international and commercial expertise to enhance U.S. capabilities and reduce vulnerabilities.
"Finally, we will pursue activities consistent with the inherent right of self-defense, deepen cooperation with allies and friends, and work with all nations toward the responsible and peaceful shared presence in space," he said (U.S. Defense Department release, June 28).

Phill Collins / Against all odds

Obviously earlier paths to space exploration showed the sort of profile an administration would champion, but, read on upon the story of the American constellation programme and you''ll see the exactation of the reason President Barack Obama proposes cancellation of the constellation programme, this is what we wanted, but, the technological advances of vehicle engines proves it could be catastrophic to spend now at a time when a huge financial commitment to a more distant planetoid would become necessary, particularly because of our ability to defend our planet with satellites between our moons apogee and perigee.

I believe that our perimeters as sensibly anticipated from President Barack Obama's judgement of the situation exist at a greater radius and the neccessary civilian commitment on ground level exists in the ranks of NASA's ageing engineers that worked on the shuttle programme and have more than 30 years of technical experience, ability and knowledge of aeronautics and atmospheric challenges, for me this era of pioneering into the future of space travel will be difficult because of the business ability of the people who are capable of building the neccessary vehicles for this next era.

I beleive that NASA's workforce has relied heavily on the government to pay their rents and mortgages and as a result of the generation that fulfilled its dreams of building rockets on such a grande scale the inheriting generation of the space age will need additional skills in the workplace to accomodate the broadness of scope required for pioneering, colony building and space infrastrucutres.

13 December 2006

At a time when the U.S. faces historic debt, NASA announced last week its intention to establish a permanent base on the Moon by 2024.

In an interview on December 4 from the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, Scott Horowitz, NASA’s associate administrator for exploration said, “We’re going for a base on the Moon.”

The NASA plan is portrayed as the next phase of the space agency’s exploration agenda after space shuttles are retired in 2010. NASA’s ambitious schedule includes a 2009 test of one of the lunar spaceships, a 2014 manned test flight of the new Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) without a Moon landing, and a 2020 flight with a four-astronaut crew that would land on the Moon for a short visit. NASA envisions people living on the Moon for six-month intervals beginning in 2024.

The most likely destination for the permanent base is the Moon's south pole because it's sunlit for three-quarters of the time and has possible resources to mine in areas nearby.

Just to ensure that Congress will support funding for the Moon program, NASA is spreading the operation out to 13 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. Pratt & Whitney in West Palm Beach, Florida is now working on the engines for a lunar lander. Bechtel is interested in building structures on the Moon for NASA.

Last year, NASA said it would cost $104 billion just to return to the Moon for a first visit, but has declined to give estimates for the total cost of a permanent base. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports that NASA’s procurement plan for the Moon lander risks delivering a product that is late, over budget, and short on capability. This is what happened in the case of the International Space Station (ISS) that was originally supposed to cost taxpayers $10 billion; the price has grown to $100 billion and the station is still not complete.

With space-related spending a low priority for most governments around the world, NASA hopes that by calling the Moon base an international post it will be able to recruit partners to help convince their publics and politicians to buy into the new exploration plan. By inviting some “allies” to share in the creation of the Moon base, the U.S. also hopes to absorb energies from countries like Japan that have announced plans of their own to establish Moon colonies.

The idea of a U.S. base on the Moon is nothing new. In a secret study called “A U.S. Army Study for the Establishment of a Lunar Outpost” published on June 9, 1959, the military maintained that, “The lunar outpost is required to develop and protect potential United States interests on the Moon; to develop techniques in Moon-based surveillance of the Earth and space; in communications relay, and in operations on the surface of the Moon; to serve as a base for exploration of the Moon…Any military operations on the Moon will be difficult to counter by the enemy because of the difficulty of his reaching the Moon, if our forces are already present and have means of countering a landing or of neutralizing any hostile forces that have landed.”

In 1999, John Young, former Gemini, Apollo, and space shuttle astronaut, said that the Moon would also be useful for “planetary defense.”

Recognizing that “control” of the Moon could cause enormous conflict over time, the United Nations created the Moon Treaty in 1979. Much of the Moon Treaty reiterates earlier and internationally-accepted “space law,” particularly the Outer Space Treaty of 1967. Article 11 of the treaty maintains, “The Moon and its natural resources are the common heritage of mankind.” The treaty also prohibits national appropriation, adding the words “by means of use or occupation, or by any other means.” In other words, no military bases and no claims of ownership are allowed. The U.S. never signed the Moon Treaty, and in fact it was only ratified by nine nations.

A 1989 study commissioned by Congress, called "Military Space Forces: The Next 50 Years" reports that whoever holds the Moon militarily will control the "earth-Moon gravity well" and thus will essentially control the front gate to the Moon.

Former Nazi Major General Walter Dornberger, who was in charge of the entireV-1 and V-2 missile operation for Hitler’s Germany, testified before the U.S. Congress in 1958 that America's top space priority ought to be to "conquer, occupy, keep, and utilize space between the Earth and the Moon." (Dornberger, along with 1,500 other top Nazi scientists, was smuggled into the U.S. under Operation Paperclip after WW II. He became Vice-President at Bell Aerospace in New York.)

The Moon has one resource that is getting everyone’s attention. It is helium-3, and, say many space enthusiasts, could be used for fusion power back here on Earth. In a 1995 New York Times op-ed, science writer Lawrence Joseph asks the question: “Will the Moon become the Persian Gulf of the 21st Century?” Joseph maintains that the most important technological question of our time will be “which nation will control nuclear fusion?” He ends his piece by saying, “If we ignore the potential of this remarkable fuel, the nation could slip behind the race for control of the global economy, and our destiny beyond.”

One person who is not ignoring helium-3 on the Moon is former astronaut and engineer Harrison Schmitt who has created a corporation to mine the Moon for it. Schmitt, though, is concerned about obstacles to his grand plans. In a 1998 piece for the industry newspaper Space News called “The Moon Treaty: Not a Wise Idea” he writes, “The strong prohibition on ownership of ‘natural resources’ also causes worry….The mandate of an international regime would complicate private commercial efforts…. The Moon Treaty is not needed to further the development and use of lunar resources for the benefit of humankind...including the extraction of lunar helium-3 for terrestrial fusion power.”

Some scientists predict that one metric ton of helium-3 could be worth over $3 billion. Researchers at the Princeton University Plasma Physics Laboratory have estimated that some one million tons of helium-3 could be obtained from the top layer of the Moon.

If all this turns out to be true and scientifically possible, imagine the gold rush to the Moon and the conflict that could follow in years to come. Who would police the Moon, especially when countries like the U.S. refuse to sign the Moon Treaty that restricts “ownership claims”?

The U.S. Space Command's plan, Vision for 2020, says, "Historically, military forces have evolved to protect national interests and investments — both military and economic. During the rise of sea commerce, nations built navies to protect and enhance their commercial interests....Likewise, space forces will emerge to protect military and commercial national interests and investment in the space medium due to their increasing importance."

I have always been convinced that, by creating offensive space weapons systems, one of the major jobs of the Space Command would be to control who can get on and off planet Earth, thus controlling the “shipping lanes” to the Moon and beyond.

There has long been a military connection to NASA’s Moon missions. In early 1994, NASA launched the Deep Space Program Science Experiment, the first of a series of Clementine technology demonstrations jointly sponsored with the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO). The Pentagon announced that data acquired by the spacecraft indicated that there is ice in the bottom of a crater on the Moon, located on the Moon’s south pole — the same venue NASA now envisions as the site for the 2024 permanent base. According to a Pentagon website, “The principal objective of the lunar observatory mission though was to space qualify lightweight sensors and component technologies for the next generation of Department of Defense spacecraft [Star Wars]. The mission used the Moon, a near-Earth asteroid, and the spacecraft’s Interstage Adapter (ISA) as targets to demonstrate sensor performance. As a secondary mission, Clementine returns valuable data of interest to the international civilian scientific sector.”

In the end, the NASA plan to establish permanent bases on the Moon will help the military “control and dominate” access on and off our planet Earth and determine who will extract valuable resources from the Moon in the years ahead.

The taxpayers will be asked to pay the enormously expensive “research and development” costs of this program that in the end will profit the aerospace industry and those corporation like Bechtel that intend to build the bases and extract resources on the Moon.

NASA is not really looking for the “origins of life,” as it tells school children today. Instead, it is laying the groundwork for a new gold rush that will drain our national treasury and enrich the big corporations that now control our government. It is beyond time for the American people to wake up to the shell game underway.

While congress deliberates among the house of representatives that should be aligning a schedule the president nurtures for America, the different sectors of commerce available for stimulation among the senators really does represent a wealthy portrayal of an epic saga about to unravel for the people of America, not because it is an America that this president needs to stimulate into a space development civilian infrastructure none of the people want, but, because it is this America that does not feel the need to expand into space because it has so much building to do on the ground among ordinary people who still enjoy their holiday atmosphere lifestyles that is still such a new beginning for people that really are still just a bunch of people building there own country on a large expanse of land with zero real need for planetary colonies...

Or do they?

The number of time zones in America tell us that it could easily be the same number of hours for a journey to another American city on the moon, perhaps on another planetoid with civilian ships capable of multi million mile per hour speeds. One thing is for sure, the president is sure that America's blue chip companies are keeping their money formly on the ground were it has plenty of room for a further population boom... But, Mr President, the romantics have ideas about using materials that would be much cheaper than if NASA plan to build an inspiration for a special era...

But... Who would have the audacity to convince President Barack Obama he could build, ferry, and accomplish a sports training base on the moon to start...

What would it be like to have a fully operational teleporting mechanism? Would terrorism spread all across the galaxy if the technology got into the wrong hands, would the wife bring my cheese sandwiches to the tent in the feild or would she teleport them? Lol... Could I teleport her home when she's had enough?...

I have theorised previously that the teleporting of magnetism to designations would work for anti - gravity platforms and this technology is certainly upon us. But, anti gravity warfare would probably be the future of terrorism with magnetic signitures being aimed at entire countries to nulify the I.Q of an entire nation...

Scientists perform 9.9 miles teleportation feat
China National News

A group of Chinese scientists has successfully achieved teleportation up to 9.9 miles, using quantum entanglement of photons.

The feat could lead to faster and smaller quantum-based computers and unbreakable, encrypted communication across the world.

"This is the longest reported distance over which photonic teleportation has been achieved to date, more than 20 times longer than the previous implementation," Discovery News quoted Cheng-Zhi Peng, one of the co-authors of the study and a scientist at University of Science and Technology of China and Tsinghua University in Beijing, as saying.

In science fiction, teleportation usually describes the transfer of matter from one point to another, more or less instantaneously - a spooky aspect of quantum mechanics.

According to the theory, bits of light and matter can become entangled with one another and anything that happens to one particle will happen to the other, regardless of the distance or intervening matter.

What the Chinese scientists managed to do was transmit change of state information from photon to photon over a distance of 16 kilometers.

The scientists are ecstatic about the distance they managed to cover. Ten miles is far enough to start thinking about a next-generation satellite communications network based on quantum teleportation, said both Schumacher and Peng.

A teleported telephone call, although no faster than a regular one, would however, be impenetrable and eavesdropping on a teleported telephone call would be impossible. The research could also dramatically speed up computing power. Practical ground-to-satellite teleportation could be in place in as little as two years, said Schumacher.

With sophisticated telescopes, radar and a low-Earth orbit satellite, the Chinese scientists expect they can teleport information from Earth to a spacecraft and back down to Earth.

The history of the star Sheratan

Beta (β) Aries, Sheratan, is a pearly white star in the left horn of the Ram.
Sharatan and Sheratan are from Arabic Al Sharatain, the dual form of Al Sharat, a Sign, referring to this and gamma (γ Mesarthim), the third star in the head, as a sign of the opening year; Sheratan (β) having marked the vernal equinox in the days of {p.82} Hipparchos (c.190 - c.125 BC), about the time when these stars were named. The 17th century German astronomer Bayer's Sartai is from this dual word.
These were the 1st manzil (Arabic Moon Mansion) in the Persian astronomer Al Biruni 's (973-1048 A.D.) list, the earlier 27th, but some added alpha (α Hamal) to the combination, calling it Al Ashrat in the plural; the 17th century English orientalist Thomas Hyde saying that the unnamed star lambda (λ) Aries also was included. Al Natih was another name for this lunar station, as the chief components are near the horns of Aries.
Beta (β Sheratan) and gamma (γ Mesarthim) constituted the 27th nakshatra (Hindu Moon Mansion) A çvini (or Ashvini), the Ashwins, or Horsemen, the earlier dual A çvinau (or Ashvinau) and A çvayujau, the Two Horsemen, corresponding to the Gemini of Rome, but figured as a Horse's Head, alpha (α Hamal) sometimes was added to this lunar station, but beta (β, this star Sheratan) always was the junction star with the adjoining Bharani. About 400 years before our era this superseded Krittika (the Pleiades in Taurus) as leader of the nakshatras (Hindu Moon Mansions). They were the Persian Padevar, the Protecting Pair; the Sogdian Iranian's Bashish, the Protector; and the equivalent Coptic people of Egypt Pikutorion; while in Babylonia, according to the German orientalist Epping, they marked the second ecliptic constellation Mahru-sha-rishu-ku, the Front of the Head of Ku.
Alpha (α Hamal), beta (β this star Sheratan), and gamma (γ) were the corresponding sieu (Chinese Lunar Mansion) Leu, or Low, the Train of a garment, beta (β Mesarthim) being the determinant.
[Allen says under Mesarthim p.82;] Alpha (Hamal), beta (this star Sheratan), and gamma (Mesarthim) may have been the Jewish Shalisha, — more correctly Shalish, — some musical instrument of triangular shape, a title also of Triangulum. And they formed one of the several Athafiyy, Trivets or Tripods; this Arabic word indicating an arrangement of three stones on which nomads placed a kettle, or pot, in an open-air kitchen; others being in Draco, Orion, Musca, and Lyra.

The Lunar Mansions
Al Sharatain, The Two Signs. Beta (β Sheratan) with gamma (γ Mesarthim) Aries were the 1st manzil (Arabic Moon Mansion) in the Persian astronomer Al Biruni 's (973-1048 A.D.) list, the earlier 27th. This mansion is now considered to begin the series of lunar mansions.
Influences of the 1st Arabic Moon Mansion Al Sharatain: Causes discords and journeys. [Robson* p.75.]
With Moon transiting here: buy cattle, plant and take voyages. [Robson* p.75.]


Beta (β Sheratan) and gamma (γ Mesarthim) constituted the 27th nakshatra (Hindu Moon Mansion) A çvini (or Ashvini), the Ashwins, or Horsemen, the earlier dual A çvinau (or Ashvinau) and A çvayujau, the Two Horsemen, corresponding to the Gemini of Rome, but figured as a Horse's Head, alpha (α Hamal) sometimes was added to this lunar station, but beta (β, this star Sheratan) always was the junction star with the adjoining Bharani. Robson says the Regents were the Asvini Devas. Ruled by the Dragon's Tail. This mansion superseded Krittika (the Pleiades in Taurus) as leader at about 400 B.C.

Influences of the 27th Hindu Moon Mansion Asvini: It is a light asterism belonging to the Vaisya caste (farmers and merchants) and favorable for sales, art, sculpture, learning, marital love, wearing of ornament, medicine and purchase of carriages when containing the Moon. Those born on the lunar day will be physicians, military commanders and dealers in horses. With Moon here at birth native will be polite, fond of ornaments, handsome, popular and intelligent. Rules towns and the upper part of the feet. [Robson* p.86.]

The astrological influences of the constellation Aries
Legend: Aries represents the ram with the golden fleece, a gift from Mercury, upon which Phrixus and his sister Helle escaped through the air from their step-mother Ino. On arriving in Colchis, Phrixus sacrificed the ram to Jupiter and its fleece was hung in the Grove of Mars, whence it was subsequently carried away by Jason (see Argo). According to another account it was the ram that guided Bacchus to a spring of water in the Libyan desert. [Robson, p.31.]
Influences: Ptolemy's observations are as follows: "The stars in the head of Aries possess an influence similar in its effects to that of Mars and Saturn: those in the mouth act similarly to Mercury, and in some degree to Saturn; those in the hinder foot, to Mars; those in the tail, to Venus." By the Kabalists Aries is associated with the Hebrew letter He and the 5th Tarot Trump "The Pope." [Robson, p.31.]
"All the Aries stars have been in the sign Taurus for 200-300 years now. Hamal just over 600 (Botein actually entered Taurus in year 505AD), and in this same period we have seen large-scale aggression change its nature from barbaric raiding and migration of earlier centuries to the building of large empires which had to be administered and kept in peace and good order, as well as exploited by their conquerors. This is typical both of the sign Taurus and of the planet Saturn". [The Living Stars, Dr. Eric Morse].

The astrological influences of the constellation Aries given by Manilius:

"The Ram, who is rich with an abundance of fleecy wool and, when shorn of this, with a fresh supply, will ever cherish hopes; he will rise from the sudden shipwreck of his affairs to abundant wealth only to meet with a fall, and his desires will lead him to disaster; he will yield his produce for the common benefit, the fleece which by a thousand crafts gives birth to different forms of gain, now workers pile into heaps the undressed wool, now card it, now draw it into a tenuous thread, now weave the threads to form webs, and now they buy and sell for gain garments of every kind; no nation could dispense with these, even without indulgence in luxury. So important is this work that Pallas herself has claimed it for her own hands, of which she has judged it worthy, and deems her victory over Arachne a token of her greatness. These are the callings and allied crafts that the Ram will decree for those born under his sign: in an anxious breast he will fashion a diffident heart that ever yearns to commend itself by its own praise.

"When the Ram emerges above the surface of the waves (rising) and the curve of his neck appears before his horns, he will give birth to hearts that are never content with what is theirs; he will engender minds bent on plunder and will banish all sense of shame: such is their desire for venture. Even thus does the ram himself rush forth with lowered horns, resolved to win or die. Not for them the gentle ease of a fixed abode with none but peaceful cares; it is ever their delight to travel through unknown cities, to explore uncharted seas, and enjoy the whole world's hospitality. The Ram himself gives you evidence of this: once furrowing a trail through the glassy sea, he tinged it with the gold of his fleece, when on his back he carried Phrixus, bereft of his sister (Helle) by fate's decree, and brought him to the banks of the Phasis and to Colchis". [Astronomica, Manilius, 1st century AD, book 4, p.233].

The astrological influences of the star Sheratan
Of the nature of Mars and Saturn. It causes bodily injuries, unscrupulous defeat, destruction by fire, war or earthquake. [Robson*, p.208.]
Daredevils and bold, danger is indicated when acting impulsively and in a foolhardy way. [Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.18, under the name El-Scheratain.]
