Do you really think that NASA is a Glass Dome? Do you really think that NASA do not manipulate any single data/image (before the public release) that
come from Space/Moon/Mars? Well, this astounding article, will change your thought, on NASA, and its real deal. This incredible new truth, inside of
NASA, refutes what many people belive: "NASA is a rigorously non-military, scientific agency which not only publishes all its findings, but which
invites the active participation of scientists from around the world"
. And this is false!
This fundamental article puts in evidence the incredible and the paranoic secrecy obsession that encircles the Space missions and what from they it
could gush. "Every single data" must be scrupulously sifted and to pass through the censorship of military/intelligence, before the public release.
Thanks to the zealous wackos at the Department of Homeland Security, back in 2007 during the latter part of the Bush administration an order went
out that all workers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena--an organization that is run under contract to NASA by the California Institute of
Technology, had to be vetted for high security clearance in order to continue doing their jobs. Never mind that not one of them was or is engaged in
secret activities (NASA is a rigorously non-military, scientific agency which not only publishes all its findings, but which invites the active
participation of scientists from around the world). In order to continue working at JPL, even scientists who had been with NASA for decades were told
they would need a high-level security badge just to enter the premises. To be issued that badge, they were told they would need to agree undergo an
intensive FBI check that would look into their prior life history, right back to college.
[...]Not surprisingly, many scientists and engineers at JPL took umbrage at this extreme invasion of their private lives. Neighbors and old colleagues
and acquaintances, ex-spouses, etc. were going to be interrogated about their drug-use history, their drinking habits, their juvenile arrest records,
their sexual orientation-all those things that prying agents like to get into when doing a security clearance background check--as if they were
applying for positions in the CIA or the Secret Service.
[...]Robert Nelson, an astronomer who spearheaded an effort to prevent this pointless security effort, together with 27 other angry JPL scientists,
sued JPL and the federal government in federal court. They lost initially at the district court level but won a permanent injunction at the Ninth
Circuit Appellate Court. That could have been the end of it, but unfortunately, the Obama administration appealed, and in 2011 when their case got to
the Roberts Supreme Court, which rarely meets an invasive government security demand it doesn’t like, the scientists lost.
[...]Take Amanda Hendrix. She tells ThisCantBeHappening!, “I left JPL after 12 years (and with a good position and lots of opportunities) because I
was very unhappy about the new badging requirements, particularly since they didn't make sense to me for scientists like myself who require no access
to top-secret-type materials. It was extremely disappointing to me that an institution like JPL would subject their long-time employees to such
measures in order to keep their jobs.”
[...]Not everyone who quit over this issue was a scientist. Susan Foster, a senior science writer at JPL, began her career there working as a
secretary in 1968, even before the first Apollo moon landing. She says she quit solely because of the NASA requirement that she submit to a “waiving
of my Fourth Amendment rights or be denied access to the facility” where she had worked for 44 years. She is currently unemployed and looking for
[...] There are no secrets at JPL, except perhaps for the temporary one about what it was that the Curiosity rover discovered in its early soil
sampling on Mars (and that proved to be not worth all the secrecy either!).
I want to be clear: This thread is not against NASA, but against WHO really RULE the NASA.
As I daid several times, I respect any NASA Member: researchers, scientists, astronauts and employee. They are absolutely very brave, smart and maybe
frustrate for this kind of paranoic secrecy on their work.
