Several of you sent me various versions of this story, and in and of itself, it is an intriguing story, but, within the context of what we've been talking about on this site over the past few weeks and months of space blogs, there may be other aspects to this story(and its associated technology, the Hubble telescope) than meets the eye.

But first things first. It seems that the Hubble space telescope has now found planets outside our solar system with circulating clouds:

Hubble Spots Clouds on Faraway Planets

Now, I suspect we all know what one of the intended subtexts is here: if there can be large exo-solar system gas giants with their own "weather," there might just be smaller Earth-like planets with something more akin to Earth-like weather... and possibly, life, and possibly, intelligent life.

I suspect however, there are other subtexts here, ones that may be (deliberately) hidden from view.  The first is the implication of the Hubble technology itself: an orbital optical telescope with tremendous ability to spot things at great distance. I suspect, given our high octane speculations here on this site concerning hidden systems of finance, and a hidden breakaway group and hidden outer space technologies, that more such platforms might exist for keeping an eye on things in local space.

In that respect, recall recently that I blogged about the US shipping new equipment to Australia for monitoring objects the size of softballs in Earth orbit, a necessary capability and one that could obviously do double duty monitoring UFO activity in nearby Earth-space.

But that capability, as I implied then, also argued a that similar capability - a similar planetary security matter - had to be envisioned to monitor deeper space activity, and not just near earth asteroids. The ability to sweep the skies for "soft ball sized objects" and then to track them would imply a similar ability to sweep farther out, with less resolution, and then, if anomalies were spotted that required further investigation, platforms such a space-born telescopes like Hubble would be not only an ideal component in such a reconnaissance system, but a vital and necessary one. In that respect, also recall Russia's announcements prior to and after the Chelyabinsk meteor episode that it would, unilaterally, build an asteroid tracking system as a first step in a defense shield against them, and this came as a statement from then president Dmitri Medvedev.  So the long and short of it is, spotting distant planets with "weather" is in indication of capabilities that may have other uses and intentions, in conjunction with other platforms. On their own, they're just "space telescopes" peering where astronomers guess their might be something. In conjunction with other platforms, however, they might be used for ultra-long-range surveillance and reconnaissance of a wholly different sort.

And that means, Hubble is probably not the only such platform.

See you on the flip side.

    But the DoD did admit it has this capability a little over a year ago: it gave NASA a hand-me-down space telescope that it had lying around that far outstripped Hubble’s capabilities. IIRC, it was so fabulously expensive and so big that NASA couldn’t even get the thing into orbit, nor did it have the budget to use it.

    Sorry I didn’t keep the link, but I remember reading about in the Washington Post and was only surprised that the Pentagram deigned to toss NASA this “hand-me-down” publicly, since obviously they’ve got something at least two generations better up there right now and anyone reading the article could figure that much out.

    So yes, the DoD definitely has this capability and has had it for quite some time–and wants anyone with a brain to know they have it, too.

    Wasn’t there a some sort of kafuffal years ago when some scientists wanted to use the Hubble telescope to look at the Moon. Then there was a negative response to this request, and the reason given was that the Hubble was so powerful, and that the Moon was far toooooooo close, in other words the photo’s would be blurred.

    For me, anything that the media print about planets and space has to have a false flag/BS tag, NASA has been caught so many times fudging the figures and photo’s that their credibility is down around their ankles.

    Perhaps this “seeing” is too easy.

    I reminded of the Jupiter and Saturn planets found orbiting Barnard Star in the seventies. Told they didn’t exist and the astronomer’s telescope was misaligned. Just how powerful are the lens on the Hubble Telescope and what do they expect to find when and if the James Webb Telescope is brought on line openly. To paraphrase James Baker WHAT DOES NASA KNOW AND WHEN DID IT KNOW IT.

      That was Howard Baker, nonetheless point well taken.

    Let me take a crack at what the name of the first habitable cloudy planet will be: New Venice?

    It will be interesting and I’m sure ghastly to watch the flood of human migration to these planets. How will the Amish adapt to a new planet without using advanced technology? In fact, how will they even get there if they can only use a horse and buggy? I anticipate some real twisting of the scriptures to make allowances for boarding a spacecraft to take them to their new promised land. And what about the Mormons? They would have no issues with adopting new technology, even including an entirely new upgraded human or cyborg shell because they have embraced transhumanism. They could very well be the odds on favorite to truly flourish in outer space– taking yahweh and human genetics to all corners of the galaxy and beyond. And there will be no one to stop them from having multiple wives on planets of their own– including alien wives.

    And what about the more ancient yahwehists? Will they set off immediately looking for those glittery metals which is the namesake of so many of them? Or will they wait until other humans have established successful civilizations and then descend on them like termites? What if some bold space immigrants decide to establish a planet where ancient yahwehists are banned? Will the ancient yahwehists then get revenge on them for their audacity and arrange for the entire galaxy to crush them?

    And what about the new yahwehists? Those crackpot evangelicals? Could we “rapture” the entire lot of them to a new distant planet where they can listen to John Hagee 24 hours a day? Likewise, would the North Koreans be willing to resettle on a different planet where they can worship the Leader and the Sacred Mountain in peace, free from American imperialists and their toxic tv programming and food? Moreover, will we see a mass exodus of Japanese escaping the Fukishima radiation? My bet is the first thing they will build on their planet is a death star pyramid to be aimed back at Earth. And the Chinese? Their expansive presence in outer space is a given. We will quickly learn what alien plants and animals are edible and which ones are not.

    Lastly, how about African-Americans? Will they be encouraged to leave Earth and perceived white oppression for a Black Planet somewhere in outer space? Will they finally get a chance to build another great civilization like ancient Timbuktu or will their new home turn into another Haiti? What would the rest of us Earthlings have to do to get Al Sharpton to go with them?

    The prospect of an Earth human presence in the wider galaxy is intriguing. I shudder for all who live there now.

    With increasing powerful monitoring equipment comes increasing electropollution.

    “monitoring objects the size of softballs”- foo fighters, anyone, already occurring during WW2?- it baffles me that no-one yet has made this connection- even if foo-fighters were larger than softballs back then there’s continued deception going on here up to the present day

  8. DanaThomas on January 8, 2014 at 5:10 am

    And yet again this raises the old question about those strangely blurred spots and “inexplicably” low-res quality on photos not only from our own solar system, but even on “google earth”…

      What I find most disconcerting is the obfuscation of land areas here on Terra firma! Antarctica springs immediately to mind.

      This obfuscation is very blatant and there openly for all and sundry to see, yet I’ve never once seen any scientific academic, or anyone that possesses any modicum of clout in the media ever raise the issue as to why this is so??
