Hope is only coincidence, xD


NASA’s Desert Research and Technology Studies (RATS) team has commenced testing communication scenarios for near-Earth asteroids. The RATS team also evaluates technology, human-robotic systems and extravehicular equipment in the high desert near Flagstaff, Arizona from August 27 through September 12.

Field testing provides a knowledge base that helps scientists and engineers design, build and operate better equipment, and establish requirements for operations and procedures. The Arizona desert has a rough, dusty terrain and extreme temperature swings that simulate conditions that may be encountered on other surfaces in space. Some of the elements that will be tested at Desert RATS during the next fortnight are prototypes of the transportation elements needed to explore a near-Earth asteroid:

NASA preparing to simulate Asteroid EVA protocols via NEEMO mission


August 14th, 2011 by Chris Bergin NASA’s Mission Operations Directorate (MOD) are preparing for involvement in an underwater simulation of protocols which may become part of a manned mission to a Near Earth Object (NEO). The tests will be carried out during October’s NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) mission, which will be based at the Aquarius underwater habitat in Key

Let's see:


Space shuttle program finished: Check
Astronauts on the ISS need to be evacuated by no later than November this year: Check
Strange unexplained noises heard from all around the planet: Check
Strange lights in the sky in an ever increasing ammount: Check
Earthquake swarms: Check
Mystery surrounding incoming celestial objects: Check
Conflicting messages from two NASA scientists: Check (One of the scientists specifically mentions the saftey of people working off the planet)

All a coincidence?

For my most dangerous is this asteroid, 2005 YU55 ..

Hope he fly away at safe distance from Earth ..

I mentioned in another thread how it was 'convenient' that the russian rocket exploded, as it now gives a plausible reason for bringing the cosmo/astronauts home without causing panic.

Reason? The draconids meteor shower is supposed to be pretty big this year.

3 of the 6 crew were scheduled to come back September 6th. There is no hasty evacuation of the ISS, in fact their stays now will be extended slightly.

Please provide a link about their extended stay!

NASA: Space station may be evacuated by late Nov.

The draconids is October however, so that rules my theory out.

Yahoo - Astronauts might have to abandon space station.

Expedition 28 commander Andrey Borisenko, Alexander Samokutyaev and Ron Garan were scheduled to return to Earth on September 8, with another crew of Expedition 29 (Anton Shkaplerov, Anatoly Ivanishin and Dan Burbank) heading to the ISS on the Soyuz TMA-22 spacecraft on September 22 to return the crew back to a compliment of six.

Suffredini said they now plan to keep the three Exp. 28 crewmembers on board until mid-September or perhaps another week or so, but they can’t really go beyond that. The opportunities for landing during the daylight (required for safety reasons) in Kazakhstan end around September 19 and do not become available again until around October 26. But by that time, however, the crew’s Soyuz TMA-21 spacecraft will have been in orbit about 10 days beyond its certified 200-day limit.

Space station commander Andrey Borisenko, Russian cosmonaut Alexander Samokutyaev and NASA flight engineer Ronald Garan launched to the complex April 4 and planned to depart the lab and return to Earth on Sept. 8.

Officials could decide this week to extend their mission, according to Suffredini.

Yeah, I'm aware of that, it's on 9th November. 9th day 11th month, 9/11, there's those numbers again.

People think I am nuts when I tell them my theory though (9/11/11 - D/M/Y).

YU55 is due around that time.

There's a reason those numbers keep showing up.
