Back to Space!!

Obola made a mistake when he killed NASA’s manned spaceflight capability.

But perhaps not in the way you’re thinking.

We’ve been having to hitch rides to the ISS on Russian boosters ever since the Space Transportation System (the “Space Shuttle”) was decommissioned in 2011. At the time Obola said it was to encourage private enterprise to take up the slack, and NASA should concentrate on exploration…Lunar and Mars missions, unmanned exploration; the sorts of things NASA excels at.

This is actually a stated rationale I can agree with. (Settle down…I know it wasn’t the real reason.) If we are to become a truly spacefaring people…should we be leaving regular transportation to the government? The same government that couldn’t build an Obolacare website or that takes twenty years to widen an interstate?

And let’s face it, when Trump is no longer in charge, that’s the government we’ll have–grossly incompetent or grossly slow and cautious.

No. Get out of the way, and let innovative companies take it on. And so we have SpaceX and Boeing building transportation systems, the Dragon and the CST-100 Starliner, respectively. NASA contracts with them for ISS transportation. But unlike past NASA contracts, where they buy the equipment (Atlas, Delta, or Titan boosters, etc) from somebody but then manage it themselves, NASA is letting SpaceX run the show today.

It’s the same structure as buying airline tickets.

If space travel is ever to become routine and common–if we are ever to become a spacefaring species on anything more than an ad-hoc basis–this is the way it’s gotta be. Private companies running a service, that the government can buy–or not. They expect to have other customers.

This is what Obola dangled in front of us as he canceled the Space Shuttle [Edit–no, he canceled the system that was supposed to replace the shuttle]. He was almost certainly pulling a bait-and-switch of some sort. There’s be some reason not to put people on the SpaceX Dragon2 and the Boeing Starliner, some excuse…delay, delay. Just like how we knew he wanted to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline but had to clothe it in ordinary procedural bullsh*t.

In neither case did he bargain on his successor being a loyal American.

But that happened, and now we stand on the threshold of private manned orbital spaceflight. People are even booking tourist flights with companies planning to use the Dragon2!!

Alas it’s still only for people with huge amounts of cash…but it’s happening nonetheless.

Dragon2? They named it after ME? Cool!!!!

The Dragon2 capsule that (we hope) will go into orbit today can hold up to seven people, but typically is set up for four, with the remaining space given over to cargo that can’t be exposed to vacuum. It can run autonomously, or it can be controlled by astronauts. (Some of the space tourism flights are slated to have no human pilot.) Shots of the interior look “clean” rather than crammed full of instruments and controls–imagine the cabin of an airliner, not the cockpit, though even the passenger space on an airliner can look a bit “busy.” It does look a lot more spacious than cattle class on an airliner.

That’s the pressurized capsule. There’s an non-pressurized “trunk” right behind it, a cylindrical section that can carry cargo that need not be pressurized, in other words, cargo that can withstand vacuum. The trunk is abandoned before returning to Earth.

The Commander of the flight will be Douglas Hurley, joined by Robert Behnken as Joint Operations Commander. Hurley was also the pilot on the very last Space Shuttle mission, on the Atlantis. I’ll bet he’s looking forward to this! The spacecraft’s name should be announced today (if the mission is not again scrubbed).

They’ll dock with the International Space Station on Sunday. Before then they will test the spacecraft in orbit. The mission is otherwise expected to be automated, with the crew only taking over if something goes wrong.

The stage lifting the capsule will return to earth and land on a barge out in the Atlantic ocean, ready for re-use. This is something SpaceX has been doing for a few years now.

Once at the ISS, the crew will spend 30 to 90 days up there, and return in the same capsule for a splashdown in the Atlantic. The capsule, too, is intended to be reused.

If this launch doesn’t happen, (and the weather does look about as iffy as it did on Wednesday) then the next window is on Sunday, shortly after 3 PM ET. As in seven seconds after 3 PM.

These launch windows are exact, because the ISS is moving at 4.75 miles per second, 17,100 miles per hour, and it does little good to get to orbit when the ISS isn’t in the right location. Missing by a minute means missing by 285 miles, about the “height” of Colorado on a map. Fuel would have to be expended to change the Dragon2’s orbit, then change it back once it has synced up with the ISS. And that fuel would cut into payload. And it’s called a payload because it, and only it, is what the customer is actually paying for.

The estimates are that there is one chance in 276 that the crew won’t survive the mission, and one chance in 60 that the mission will fail with the crew being safe. (This is actually a better safety record than the Space Shuttle had–let’s hope that in the years to come we exceed it by a huge margin.)

It has been nine LONG years, but we’re going back to space, in a way that long-term will be vastly better than clunky government projects that take decades. It was painful, but I believe 20 years from now we will look back and say “it was worth it.”

So what was Obola’s mistake? As I alluded to before, he was probably trying to kill US manned spaceflight permanently. Turning NASA into nothing but an SJW advocacy organization.

Instead, he has done us some good.

Which can’t possibly be what he intended.

Oops! Sorry, Shithead! And no do-overs, not while in prison.

The Future

Space travel is expensive, and will continue to be expensive. We’re no longer throwing away the entire spacecraft after every flight, but they must still go through expensive refurbishment after every flight–and then the launch vehicle has to be re-assembled. SpaceX is doing this more cleanly than NASA, but even so, it’d be soooo much nicer if we could get to orbit with one stage. “Single State To Orbit” (SSTO) is the holy grail of space travel. It’s just out of our grasp, but close isn’t good enough.

Imagine if that spacecraft could be turned around and reused in a week…or a day.

That was the aim of this program…a valiant effort that fell short.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonnell_Douglas_DC-X

Add to that the fact that if you can get into and out of orbit…you can go anywhere on Earth in less than an hour, because a round trip in orbit is about ninety minutes. Imagine the Space Force delivering commandos to…well, fill in the blank! On an hour’s notice. Of course, that’s a lot harder, because you’re unlikely to be able to gas the sucker back up in hostile territory. Doing TWO orbits and reentries on one tank of gas is well beyond us. So far. But assuming a friendly destination, imagine what we can do if we can deliver something to (say) Diego Garcia in an hour.

And actually going to orbit will be significantly cheaper. As routine as the Pan Am flights in 2001? Maybe!

Of course the real answer is the space elevator, but that’s totally beyond our capabilities right now. We basically need SSTO before we can even think about building something that ambitious in orbit. The fundamental problem is we’re stuck “down here,” and have to get not just ourselves but everything we need to function, “up there.” But with a space elevator…it takes nothing but electricity to get “up there.” And once in orbit, the rest is easy.

The Riots

Honestly, I wanted to focus on something positive today…so I’ll say nothing beyond that I’m sure this will not have the intended effect of bringing Trump down…or long distracting him and us from the quest for Justice.

But I will post my by-now standard quote, just to keep us “centered.”

Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People...Our campaign represents a true existential threat, like they’ve never seen before.

Then-Candidate Donald J. Trump
The Point of The Movement

By one interpretation (the likeliest one, I think), the current unpleasantness is just yet another tactic by that corrupt political establishment, to prevent the President from doing to them, what they badly need to have done to them. (Though I doubt POTUS really intends to use 12 gauge wire bore brushes on them.)

Memorial Day (Traditional)

Memorial Day wasn’t always the last Monday in May (sliding bears and all), it was once the 30th of May and did not move. So Saturday/Today is the “real” Memorial Day, if you want to look at it that way.

5. Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
6. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
7. Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)

Today’s Coin

Now it wouldn’t be one of my posts without a coin, would it?

And yes, there’s one appropriate to our theme…a coin that depicted, allegorically, one of our proudest achievements. We put men on the Moon. So far, no one else has. And maybe we will again, soon. Unfortunately Eugene Cernan, the last man on the Moon, who surely must have hated holding that record, passed away in 2017 and did not live to see us go back. But soon, I think. During Trump’s third term.

The Eisenhower Dollar, 1971-1978 (In 1975 and 1976, it was issued with a different reverse, to celebrate the bicentennial of the American Revolution.) This particular coin was produced in San Francisco in 1971.
The reverse is our focus here, as it is an adaptation of the Apollo 11 patch. In 1971 we were still taking trips to the Moon, and of course we were justifiably proud of the achievement.

“The Eagle Has Landed,” indeed.

The Eisenhower Dollar was the last full-sized “silver” dollar to be issued; in 1979 we went to the “Carter Quarter,” the Susan B. Anthony dollar, a coin just a bit larger than a quarter, and at a casual glance indistinguishable. Those were produced until 1981, then again in 1999, after which we went to the Sacajawea “golden dollar” which was the same size but colored quite differently.

Ike dollars are readily available at coin shops, they will charge a little bit over a dollar for them (they do have to make a living) but probably well under two dollars unless you want an uncirculated one…or a SILVER one.

Yes, some were made in silver for collectors, both in regular and proof finish, but alas not 90% silver like the older real silver dollars, but rather a 90% layer on each side surrounding a much-less-pure silver/copper alloy in the center, for a net 40% silver content. (Kennedy half dollars from 1965-1970 are like this too.) As long as the coin doesn’t start to tarnish, however, it will look like silver even on the edge, whereas our dime, quarter and half dollar today have that red-turning-to-brown edge on them. That solid silvery edge looks nifty.

  6. Before I leave the keyboard for a bit, I want to respond to/address some sentiments posted above.

    One of our Q treepers posited that these “protests” and riots and looting are for distraction from the Flynn-Kislyak transcripts being released.

    Maybe, but I think there’s more to it, even more than just the COVID-19 thing having run its course.

    If this is all about the election, and is part of instlling fear into the people so as to accept mail-in ballots, that makes a little more sense. It was tried with COVID and didn’t work. People WILL insist on staying home out of fear, though, when push comes to shove. Even to vote.

    (Side note: the only people in my circles with one exception who want mail in ballots are liberals. Everybody else wants voter ID and to show up in person, so there is that.)

    The other thing…this just so happens to explode the very week the US severs ties with the World Health Organization, kicks Chinese students out of the country, and whatever other booms happened this week that didn’t seem like much to us, the people in the cheap seats, but must mean a lot to whoever is financing all this crap unfolding.

No sirens, choppers overhead, ambulances, fire trucks, EMT’s, etc. Oh, yea, it’s all over the local news and the AJC “news” paper, but honestly … that’s it.

  14. My wife this past week has been complaining about her LIFELOG feed.

    There was NOTHING in her feed for DAYS.

    6 posts.

    Over.

    And over.

    And over.

    If she went to her friend’s pages directly, she saw they were posting LOTS of things.

    My test posts NEVER showed on her feed.

    It simply was a DEAD FEED for DAYS.

    “What is Facebook doing? You know they’re going to drive people off the platform if they block everything.”

    Especially the political content was blocked.

    Any info sharing on COVID-19 was blocked.

    Any real info content at all was blocked. But animal posts were going through.

    .

    Flash forward to this morning.

    My wife comes in the room this morning upset and angry about a phony post from SoJo (FAKE LEFTIST “Christian” PAID OFF BY SOROS YEARS AGO) claiming that you owe things to others based on the color of your skin.

    Her Facebook feed is LIT UP with George Floyd

    Filled with race baiting articles

    Filled with outrageous news stories

    AGITPROP AGITPROP AGITPROP

    Nothing else, nothing of interest is getting through

    But racial tension is being pushed

    They pushed the lever up to FULL THROTTLE on their RIGGED ALGORITHMS.

    1. Keep in mind that the CHURCHES have been INFILTRATED and pushing the RACE NARRATIVE for months . . . paid off by Tim Gill, Paul Singer and Daniel Loeb . . . and of course, Soros operating through his dark money organizations like the Kern Family Foundation. . .

      After the 2019 SBC Annual meeting where they (under Al Mohler’s behind the scenes string-pulling) pushed their resolution on Critical Race Theory, in which they literally took a proposed resolution in opposition to it and REVERSED it to be FOR it . . .

      It’s everywhere. You could be forgiven for thinking that every church had bowed their knee to Baal and that there were none faithful left.

        1. Most of the Bible colleges have been infiltrated and subverted by the left. Obviously Soros put a lot of money into buying them out through the EIT and the Kern Family Foundation – among other dark money orgs.

          Not well know is that the SSCI (Read: Diane Feinstein) as well as the CIA and FBI were giving large grants of money to the American Academy of Religion for decades. They in turn were pouring money into the Evangelical Theological Society and to religious faculty and seminaries – with the express intent of suppressing undesirable theological viewpoints. I know this b/c I know the person who was the chairman of the academic committee for assigning the grant money for the state of California decades ago – it was not considered a plum academic job. In turn, this funneling of the money was influencing the churches, b/c most churches don’t think for themselves but take their cues from the seminary system. It’s become a big Good Old Boys network, a tribal insiders Big Club, and you ain’t in it.

          Moody and Willow Creek org are totally compromised – Moody was exposed only because one staff member stood in the gap and released the emails exposing what was going on. Willow Creek org is in total meltdown which has led to a massive diaspora a compromised staff and pastors who are being hired up by other churches – independent and SBC affiliated – at an alarming rate, where they come in and suddenly have an out-sized disproportionate influence on the congregation. Southern Seminary is 100% owned (Al Mohler) and they have been purging faculty. Al Mohler staged a coup to oust Paige Patterson at Southwestern and now they own SWBTS 100%. They are pushing this big discipleship program published through the ERLC that is packaged like a trojan horse to push social justice in a big way – also well funded. SWBTS has had a major faculty purge just like Southern – they withhold severance packages unless you sign an NDA. A precious few have refused to go along and have spoken out, like Dr. Russell Fuller or Dr. Robert Lopez.

          Your son is seeing exactly the fruits I have (painfully) witnessed throughout this transformation. They have been sold a bill of goods for years. Unless they are well grounded the students are ripe pickings for them. I saw it on display when I lead a group of students at the 2006-2007 Urbana conference where they were pushing students away from the gospel and toward social justice programs. Lots of slick messaging and advertising – most of the students would fall for it. They become like cult members – they can’t stand anyone who disagrees with them or uses logic or facts. Your son will lose many “friends”, and they will accuse him of putting politics ahead of the “gospel” (gospel of social justice, not the gospel of Christ). He needs a thick skin and expect them to do dirty things to undermine him and turn any friends they can against him.

          Big Evangelicalism has been subtly more and more pushing a social justice agenda – platforming the names they want people to see. If you stand against them they deplatform you, attack your legitimacy, slander your character, shun and ostracize you, turn your own church and family against you, and blacklist you with other area churches. If you are in the ministry, they trump up phony charges against you, and intentionally frustrate your work, try to get you to quit or demand your resignation (they don’t want to “fire” you). Then if you try to apply anywhere else, they give you nasty bad references so you can’t even get a job as a janitor in another church. God overcomes all and takes care of the righteous, but the pain and suffering is real.

          It is spiritual warfare. Put on the whole armor of God.

He’s sparred and debated his friends for years and is well prepared for this moment. He has a bit of a passion that I’m seeing more strongly these past few days of unrest happening. I’ll share this since he’s pretty perplexed as to why they all seem so brainwashed. Also, no wonder it’s been hard to find a church we feel comfortable in for a while.

    The New York Times gets what it wants: riots [KT]

    In previous weeks and months, we have been reviewing developments since the New York Times announced last August that it would be focusing its news coverage, as much as possible, on racism (with particular emphasis on Donald Trump, of course). Other media outlets joined in.

    Some other news items have distracted the media since then. But they sure have a bonanza of race-related stories to cover now. I decided to go back and look at one of the essays which was submitted by black Americans for the “1776 Initiative”, which is aimed at countering the pernicious effects of the NYT’s “1619 Project”. Might it have some relevance to today’s news?

    Shelby Steele

    Mr. Steele’s essay describes how he decided, after the disillusionment of the late 1960s, not to abandon America, after visiting Africa. It explains how both minorities and white elites gain power and a sense of historical place through promoting a continued emphasis on victimhood.

    You might want to read the whole thing. What has changed and what hasn’t since the late ’60s?

    Insurgency.
    Insurgency is the organized use of subversion and violence to seize, nullify or challenge political control of a region. As such, it is primarily a political struggle, in which both sides use armed force to create space for their political, economic and influence activities to be effective. Insurgency is not always conducted by a single group with a centralized, military-style command structure, but may involve a complex matrix of different actors with various aims, loosely connected in dynamic and non-hierarchical networks. To be successful, insurgencies require charismatic leadership, supporters, recruits, supplies, safe havens and funding (often from illicit activities). They only need the active support of a few enabling individuals, but the passive acquiescence of a large proportion of the contested population will give a higher probability of success. This is best achieved when the political cause of the insurgency has strong appeal, manipulating religious, tribal or local identity to exploit common societal grievances or needs. Insurgents seek to gain control of populations through a combination of persuasion, subversion and coercion while using guerrilla tactics to offset the strengths of government security forces. Their intent is usually to protract the struggle, exhaust the government and win sufficient popular support to force capitulation or political accommodation. Consequently, insurgencies evolve through a series of stages, though the progression and outcome will be different in almost every case.

        1. The main thing is getting the organization declared as terrorist, which opens a lot of legal, procedural, and prosecutorial doors.

          The tracking down of members (aided by snitches) will follow in due time. If we don’t have the basis to nail them, it matters nothing if we know who they are…

  19. More on that ‘action’ document…. it appears to be one from the Baltimore uprising but this info is very telling..

    https://news.unclesamsmisguidedchildren.com/friends-of-democracy-funded-planned-baltimore-riots/

    You can clearly see the “Friends of Democracy” letterhead on the top left. “Friends of Democracy” is owned by, none other than, Jonathan Soros, son of billionaire and liberal financier George Soros. This article will explain everything you need to know about the Super- PAC that is “Friends of Democracy.”

    On the top right of the document you can see a “Confidential level 7” tag. This tells me US government intelligence involvement, or that some one with US government Confidentiality Classifications knowledge is attached to this document. Here is an FAS.org publication on US government security classifications. I have taken the liberty to cut the “Confidential Information” portion and post it here as a photo.

    1. ***Warning Graphic description follows***

      The Jared Arms vid below captures the full drag of stupid thug. Jared is also one of the stupid thugs. Vid is very long and has no controls that I can detect so provides this short description.

      Starts with long long scene of Jared Arms’s stupid friends blocking traffic on the Hwy. Of note, no police come to this spot even though traffic has been stopped for a long period of time. There is traffic being blocked on highway below as well as the street above that the Fed Ex truck uses near the end of the video. A few cars manage to get by in the first 12 to 15 minutes, before the drag begins, making video more watchable but there are long moments where not much happens.

      Jared makes a few stupid comments and is generally having a good time acting like a self righteous thug. The crowd below are using both their cars and themselves to block traffic and its more like a block party where they all sit around getting high, drinking and the like as traffic has been largely stopped. There’s even a bit of gun flashing. No violence done but there’s a heavy air of intimidation and minor verbal threats.

      That is until word goes up that someone is trapped between the tandem trailer of a Fed Ex truck on the upper street. Jared is hot on the scene, moving from his vantage point overlooking the lower highway to the street above where some of his other stupid friends are now banging on the doors and windows of a Fed Ex truck to get the driver to stop as it slowly tries to inch past the pesky parasites blocking the way of a legitimate commerce and who are now terribly concerned to the point of being frantic as one of their not too bright fellows is both being dragged and having the wheels of the truck spin along an already crushed portion of his body. This is where intrepid jared joins the scene running along side the truck and his friend for nearly a good half minute in complete befuddlement and dismay, crying that the truck wont stop.

      Eventually Jared gives up as the truck speeds away with his friend. But wait. The truck pulls over a good two or three blocks away where the police have magically appeared and Jared eventually shows up huffing and puffing to see his friend, still pinned and quite dead.
