Space is in the news once again, and may thanks to the many people for sending me these and other articles... While I do not intend much detailed commentary here(you'll have to wait for Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations for that), I suspect that readers here will connect the dots for themselves. First, there is this backhanded admission concerning the former atmosphere of Mars:

How Mars' Atmosphere Got so Thin: New insights from Curiosity

I hope you caught the pertinent paragraph:

"The isotope data are unambiguous and robust, having been independently confirmed by the quadrupole mass spectrometer and the tunable laser spectrometer, two of the SAM suite instruments," Atreya said. "These data are clear evidence of a substantially more massive atmosphere, hence a warmer, wetter Mars in the past than the cold, arid planet we find today."

In other words, there is now even more confirmation to the growing body of evidence that Mars may have once been hospitable to life, and, as our recent blogs have suggested, to intelligent life. Now, last week I suggested in my News and Views from the Nefarium, and it will be a thesis explored in more detail in Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations, that the recent rapid introduction and (more importantly) the "media talking-up" of 3-D printing has a profound connection to space and space exploration. With that in mind, there is now this interesting bit of news:

3D-Printed Rocket Engine Part Passes Key NASA Test - See more at:

Now I do not for a moment assume that 3-d printing would be used merely to produce rocket engines or parts thereof. In fact, I rather suspect that this is the usual "theater for show and tell," and that the real story is that 3-d printing may be used ultimately to produce parts to very different parts of space propulsion technologies, technologies that are themselves very different from mere rockets. The important point here, given the high octane speculation on space matters that I have been indulging in lately, is that it is at least being openly admitted that 3-d's implications for space are rather dramatic. Imagine being able to produce parts here, and assemble them up there, even if they are only rockets.  It would have been a dramatic step forward if, say, one could have assembled the Saturn V in space and launched it from there, rather than from the ground. In other words, even as a technology applied only to rockets, 3-d printing is a potential "force multiplier" of with enormous potentialities.

But I rather suspect that that the recent NASA admissions that they are actually doing proof of concept experiments for warp drive - yes you read that correctly - are the real story:

NASA Admits Alcubierre Drive Initiative: Faster Than The Speed Of Light

That, and of course, the "new spirit of cooperation" between NASA and the Japanese Space Agency (and let's remember, folks, if you're still talking about rockets, the Japanese have some big ones):

NASA and JAXA Discuss Space cooperation

The point of interest in this last article is the reference to "our asteroid initiative," i.e., NASA's publicly stated desire to lasso an asteroid, haul it into near Moon orbit, and mine it. Why would NASA be discussing this with Japan? Well, without reviewing the argument that I make in the forthcoming Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations, space, it would appear, is being (or actually, has been) collateralized, and since Japan holds so much US debt, this is, so to speak, the pay off. Of course, the sum total of all these articles taken together, and especially the last two, is that "someone" may be out there and may not particularly like us mining their asteroids. And with all those tricks of light and shadow on Mars, well, you never know... There is, after all, that nasty jurisdictional problem of prior claim. But, for that, you'll have to wait for the book.

See you on the flip side.

Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and "strange stuff". His book The Giza DeathStar, for which the Giza Community is named, was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into "alternative history and science".

    good site for pyramid explanation……neat that our arrival faces the leo constellation.

    and god created man in his image…..funny that the moon and the sun appear to be the same size.
    god is light.

      Thanks very much for this link Jedi.
      This hypothesis seems very credible, ties in with the Holy Science, amongst other things. This book is definitely on the list.

      I 2nd BetelgeuseT-1,
      Thanks for posted this link jedi.

        no p guys, keep in mind “they” and there half truths, that keep us confused and away from the real truth.

  2. Robert Barricklow on July 19, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    “They” are securitizing & financialing everthing in sight, on the planet, out-of-sight and out of this world.

    Leads one to beg the ?

    When will “they” financialize securitize

      kick the money changers out of the temple, the temple is your fore head, the gateway into your mind, the church is your body. Money isnt the problem…..or the root of evil……another half truth.

    Same old letting the cat slowly out of the bag. China really putting the heat on the USA for NASA suddenly talking this way. By the way here is another website that might interest you Mr. Farrell it’s a long article on Tesla published today July 19, 2013 By the way what’s your take on what happen in India our Elites moving up the final solution date.

      Thanks marcos toledo for posting that blog site.

    hehe, rockets in space…..make sure if you tell a lie.

    on the subject of Mars, er Ars…Does anyone ever think about what those pharohs were doing putting themselves in gold caskets, in cased in four saracoughagus?

    Never mind I see they noted O’Leary’s death and the article is a summary of something else.

  6. Sagnacity on July 19, 2013 at 6:11 am

    What’s the date on the Faster Than Light travel article?

    Also Brian O’Leary has been dead for at least a couple of years, odd no note of that fact. (Nor did he spend much time at Princeton, too narrow for his thinking. Yes I realize that Robert Jahn worked/s there.)

    “Imagine being able to produce parts here, and assemble them up there, even if they are only

    Um what does this have to do with 3D printing specifically? 3D printing is useful for printing out parts that have complex curves and internal spaces. It doesn’t make parts that are somehow more easily shipped to a space station orbiting the earth. (I guess the raw metal powder and a printer could be shipped to space, and then with enough welding energy, parts could be made, however without gravity working with nonmagnetic materials would be difficult.)

    I think the reason for working with Japan on asteroids is that Japan already landed on one and took off from one with a sample. This was almost ten years ago.

    Compared to the US Federal Reserve, the US Social Security Admin., the Chinese government, and perhaps the Bank of England, the Japanese don’t hold much US Treasury debt–plenty but nothing like the other parties, with the exception of the Bank of E.

        I guess that accounts for the gravity thing that makes 3D printing with metal powder much easier.

        Still not at all clear what this following has to do with 3D printing, requoting:

        “Imagine being able to produce parts here, and assemble them up there, even if they are only rockets.”
