Here are two headlines that were in the news a couple of years ago that many have overlooked.

Razor-thin skin protects tiny spacecraft

8/19/2008 4:01:32 PM ET
Fleets of miniature spacecraft may now be closer to liftoff.

To bring this sci-fi vision of 50-pound "micro-spacecraft" and 10-pound "nano-spacecraft" to reality, scientists have now invented a razor-thin skin that can protect craft against the extreme heat and intense cold found in outer space and withstand micrometeoroids hurtling at thousands of miles per hour.



Military satellites 'may get stealthy'

Thursday, 21 February 2008
Radar concealment

Military space expert Dr Stuart Eves thinks that future spacecraft are likely to incorporate stealth technology in order to better avoid detection.

"The threat side of this could be implemented by techniques a bit like those used on aircraft, such as using radar absorbent materials, radar reflective materials, or painting the satellite black," Dr Eves, from Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), told BBC News.

But the solar panels for powering the satellite would be more difficult to hide from radar. The infra-red signature of a satellite is also hard to conceal.

Dr Eves adds: "One of the other issues is that the ability to track objects in space from the ground extends down to objects about 10cm in size - that's effectively what you can do with existing radars.

"One of the ways of being stealthy is to be quite small and hard to see."

Heavy Lift Delta IV Rocket Launches

A launch on December 21, 2004
A launch on December 21, 2004 by Boeing with a new "Delta IV Heavy" rocket from Cape Canaveral failed to place a 'dummy' satellite into its intended orbit, but the launch was considered successful by Air Force officials.

The dummy satellite, the purpose of which was to monitor the Delta IV launch, as well as two experimental nanosatellites,provided by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory...

Collins also reported, "We now have enough information and confidence in the Delta IV Heavy to move forward with preparations for the upcoming Defense Support Program launch in 2005. The mission has met all its major objectives. The US Air Force - was very, very happy."

In referring to laser-based technology there is now an "anti-laser". From what I have read in the past couple of years, it was just a theory. So now they have actually created an anti-laser. From what I understand is that this concept/device cancels out specific wavelengths of light. So in my wild imagination, devices that are put out in space can actually cancel out different wavelengths of light and become stealth. Futhermore, they can probably cancel out lasers. The following article only talks about computing and medical applications, but of course the M.I.C. can easily exploit such new technology for their own means:

My question is why use a Heavy Lift Delta Rocket to lift a dummy satellite? I think the payload was more substantial than this according to their satisfactory reactions.

That was the question I had when I spotted that story.
Why waste all of that on a bogus satellite?

I think plain and simple is that they are using the "Rods of God" type of weaponry. A rod made of depleted uranium or tungsten can kinetically do a lot of damage if released from such high altitudes. Initially use a propellant to launch them and then use Earth's gravity to power them to their destination.

Many always ask...

How can they keep all this secret...

Well here are two examples... (and there is the Atomic Bomb as well)

Secret Empire Changed Cold War


President Dwight Eisenhower approved the U-2 program in 1954. Only four members of Congress knew about it and paperwork was essentially nonexistent.The funds came from a discretionary fund in the CIA directors unaudited budget, Taubman said. It wasn’t until pilot Francis Gary Powers was shot down over the USSR in 1960 that the unique “jet-powered glider” became public knowledge. According to Taubman, “Eisenhower had faith in science. He had openness to technology that I don’t think many other presidents have had. And finally, he had extraordinary patience. And he needed it, because these projects were very difficult to pull off.”


CIA's unaudited budget Hmmmmm

From an internal newsletter at LLNL (Note: Secure server)
publicaffairs.llnl.gov...

CORONA Spy Satellites


For example, the first 12 launches of the Corona spy satellite ended in failure. Taubman said, “Today, there would never be the tolerance in Washington to sustain a program that had such a high failure rate. It wouldn’t happen.” But it was worth it, according to Taubman. “It probably saved the nation billions of dollars in defense spending,” because it proved that the USSR possessed only a handful of ICBMs, far fewer than predicted by CIA analysts.

“All of this was amazing engineering,” said Taubman. “We’d never done any of this. There were no models. And don’t forget, there were only the most primitive computers at the time. The guys who did these projects were still working with sliderules.” Years later, Eisenhower was quoted as saying, “This bunch of scientists was one of the few groups I encountered in Washington who seemed to be there to help the country and not to help themselves.”

publicaffairs.llnl.gov...

Now from the NRO we get a new policy of openness...



In recent years, the NRO has implemented a series of actions declassifying some of its operations. The organization was declassified in September 1992 followed by the location of its headquarters in Chantilly, VA, in 1994. In February 1995, CORONA, a photoreconnaissance program in operation from 1960 to 1972, was declassified and 800,000 CORONA images were transferred to the National Archives and Records Administration. In December 1996, the NRO announced for the first time, in advance, the launch of a reconnaissance satellite.

And lets not forget that an important but yet controversial identity worked on the KH-11 Kennan. It's all about following the dots I guess.

Okay, after perusing for your initial inquiry I realized your line of questioning. I bet the farm that our government is launching some quite interesting stuff from Siberia on contract. Or even from Diego Garcia. Vandenberg is too exposed now.
Can anyone elucidate what the last few NASA shuttle launches will take to the ISS? If our current Space Shuttle program is going off line then why not add more modules to the ISS? If it is just supplies, then why not use the Soyuz?
And if the model of the Space Shuttle has become obsolete to the point of not funding this program anymore, then what else has been implemented out there to replace it? I don't buy the Orion project one bit.

Seems like we have ballistic, laser, and kinetic energy weapons already deployed out there somewhere in space. The Boeing X-37, I think in my opinion put in place the first kinetic projectiles out there.

Neutral Particle Beam Technology

This image is from Los Alamos dates 1972

The proposed space-based neutral particle beam would shoot an unbendable beam of hydrogen molecules at approximately 60,000 kilometers per second to disrupt the electronics and warhead of an incoming missile.

Creating a Miniature Star on Earth

Have all the data on the Laser here including photos and links to the secure LLNL site

But what is note worthy, other than us creating a small star on Earth
, is this...


Excerpt... When the United States ceased nuclear testing, laser facilities became even more important for defense research, and the portion of Nova shots dedicated to the weapons program increased considerably. Researchers using Nova continued obtaining high-energy-density data necessary to validate the computer codes used to model nuclear weapons physics.



Though while the release of this was only recent (Project Camelot had a bit on it's existence in an interview a couple years back) it has in fact been operating for a LONG time



Caption
From 1973 to 1977, the Laboratory built four laser systems: (a) the one-beam Cyclops; (b) the one- and two-beam Janus system, which is still in use; (c) the two-beam Argus; and (d) the 20-beam Shiva. Each new laser provided more power and better control over the target-irradiation conditions as well as produced higher temperatures and greater compression and density in the deuterium–tritium fuel than its predecessor.

This all looks like a bunch of Eisenhower era Popular Science stuff. The only thing I can remember about Johnson and Johnson from back then is that their powder felt good on my butt. With all this technical achievement you would think that they would have put that star they produced on earth to better use in the way of power plant technology? The non proliferation or prior art contracts are the only reasons I can think of that would have prevented the development of fusion plants. Companies with big money invested in oil and fission could squash a third technical competitor. I know all the cut and paste crap claims we haven't even got to break even with fusion technology but what if the real reason is political?

Yeah but don't forget all the stuff Russia was doing with Scalar and Tesla energy way back. Old stuff but I already posted the huge Tesla Towers and the Woodpecker (now contaminated by Chernoble radiation) and the URSA site that was the focus of that CIA remote viewing project.

I wouldn't count the Russians out
