Perhaps they took a woman with them to conceive, deliver and spend the first year of the childs life in space. Im sure more than a few are curious as to what the effect would be. Just an idea.

Eh? In an unmanned craft?

Why is it that when I click "quote" nobody's text appears?

Not on this they didn't. The X-37 is tiny compared to just about anything. The cargo hold barely qualifies as a cargo hold.

My theory: The space shuttle went to Zeta Reticuli to collect alien viruses to be released on the human population. Ebola and other earth bound projects have not proven themselves successful.


It takes 7 months to get to Zeta Reticuli Through a Worm Hole! tho. LOL!

How is a shuttle "weaponising space"?



Heres is your Answer.

During the Cold War The Fear of Using Shuttles to Carry Nuclear Warheads on Both Side of the War

According to Space.com

Top 10 Space Weapons

X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV)

Scheduled for a test flight on April 20, 2010, the reusable robotic X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV) is a small space shuttle-like craft developed by the US Air Force. If such a reusable space plane becomes feasible, it will offer unheard-of capabilities for launch on-demand, surprise, and flexibility. If those benefits aren't enough, the space plane may be outfitted with a weapon to drop tungsten rods on Earth targets from outer space, the so-called "Rods from God."

Rods of god! ??

Just about anything can carry a weapon in space. Hell the Russians even experimented with putting guns on one of their stations, and had a design for a "space fighter".

As long as the rods fit, almost any sattelite in orbit could launch them. If we're going to say space is being weaponised based on what COULD go up, we better stop every launch then.

Yeah Just about anything could carry a weapon Even Biological to Doomsday ..

how much of a could of Been reality as the Movie Space Cowboys of a Satellite carrying Nuclear weapons ?

well The Government around the Word had a Huge Fuzz with independent Space Corporations.. at the beginning

Im sure they did not care about the less than 100 ppl that saw it. When I got back home my friend did not even hear it inside our apartment. They gave all the ships a warning about the launch, but did not specify of what they were launching. Thats how I even found out they were launching anything. Maybe it was the Aurora craft.

The shuttle once belonged to NASA but the article describes it as an orphan who has been adopted by the USAF. So it's military and definitely classified. Years down the road I'm sure someone will file a FOIA request netting some info.

That phrase is really eye-catching...and it's from The Guardian. I guess they have decided it's something, 'they will-not-touch-with-a-barge-pole.'

The 'Orphan' will be heading out there again soon.

What if the viruses aren't to kill us but something that preys on us. If they really wanted to kill us they could just set off a volcano that would wipe out 99% of the world. its happened before so they are not trying to kill us, watch and you shall see

the secret spaceprogram is probably decades if not centuries ahead of our publicly known technology
were probably back engineering some of it right now in secret ops

If it's spy related then it has to do with signals and radar.

Right, just like nothing else the military has developed has revolutionized anything in the civilian world.

It's easier, cheaper, and safer to have an unmanned vehicle in orbit for months to build/assemble/test things than to use a human in a space suit.

I also doubt it's big enough to carry the "rods from God" that so many have talked about. From what I recall, they were theorized to be the size of telephone poles.

Then please, oh wise one, grant us your wisdom of what it's really doing.

If it's the military doing advanced testing, then why would case be any different from all of the other instances of tech that was originally developed for military use finding its way into everyday life (albeit usually after some time).

Rocketry programs in the U.S. were pursued after WWII because of the idea of developing intercontinental ballistic missiles, which became the beginnings of the U.S. space program, as well as the idea of the military controlling the "high ground" of space.
