MORE STRANGE SPACE NEWS: JAPAN’S PLANS FOR A ORBITAL SOLAR ...
I continue to watch the developing space story with some interest, and now there is this news, which, in the context of other events, I take both as space news and as geopolitical news. This article came to me from a regular reader here, Mr. S.D., and it is significant enough to pass along, and, as always, calls forth our usual high octane, or in this case, high orbital, speculations:
Japan Plans to Have a Power Plant into Space in a Decad
In the wake of the Fukushima disaster, and its wake-up warning message about the dangers of fission-nuclear power, one can certainly understand and sympathize with Japan's quest for an energy source that is both clean, reliable, and, from a terrestrial point at least, not interdictable by foreign powers.
But once we have entertained this thought, then there are others that immediately come to mind. The first is the Fukushima context itself. At the time of that disaster, there was a body of speculation that raised the specter that there was more going on than met the eye. There were speculations that the TEPCO reactors may have been part of a secret nuclear weapons program. Given, at that time, the fact that Japan had a government that was attempting to make attempts to reconcile with China, and given the fact that that same Japanese government was entertaining the idea of imperial state visits to Beijing, and also politely requesting that the USA close its base on Okinawa, and given the then US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates' scarcely concealed treats to that country in response, a covert nuclear weapons program on Japan's part made some arguable geopolitical sense.
But in the wake of all of this, a Japanese architectural firm then proposed a solar panel array on the Moon, spanning its entire equator, for the ostensible purpose, again, of beaming power back to the Earth in the form of convertible microwave energy, which I blogged about on this site. A few days later, China announced a similar plan, but with the modification that in the Chinese version, a clear military purpose was stated: their version was called "the Death Star." Small wonder, since the same basic technologies the Japanese were talking about then, and are talking about with this latest version of essentially the same idea, could be modified to convert such a power plant into a powerful microwave weapon, able quite literally to fry whole regions on Earth, or targets in space(such as asteroids, which could conceivably be pushed onto different orbits if the microwaves were powerful enough, or simply vaporized if even more powerful). And the need for space-based solar power is itself pressing on us, rushing at us from the future: planet Earth is quickly approaching the point it is going to need vastly much more resources and energy, and the Sun is the most obvious plentiful neighborhood supply of energy there is.
Can you say Type II Civilization?
The long and short of all this is: humanity eventually must, and probably sooner rather than later, come up with alternative forms of energy, and that will include space-based solar power. And that, in turn, will completely change the energy-financial system. The petro-dollar will become the solar-dollar, for maintaining such expensive and complex platforms will require, inevitably, a military capability in space, a capability that, in turn, may utilize weaponized versions of the same technology. Japan by pursuing such technologies, is saying that we need to do so sooner rather than later, and China, by pointing out the military potential of such technologies (and Japan's plans), is serving notice that it will not be left behind in either way.
With the Cold War Act Two that seems to be emerging, this spells, as we shall discover tomorrow, some new opportunities and new dangers.
See you on the flip side.

Interesting short vid on benefits of solar roadways. In addition to being able to create custom lighting patterns, you can create roads that don’t freeze or ice over, and can also run power/telecables in channels next to road so you don’t have overhead power lines that can be felled by trees in storms.
A good use of solar! I hope this idea gets somewhere…
I’m searching for words to describe this moronic idea. The Universe is an organism and it has to abide by rules. Once you start messing around with the Universe something has to happen. Take the Cosmic War for instance, after the Gods blew up a planet all hell broke loose, and the Gods had to “recalibrate” the dame thing. This Earth of ours is a pretty special place, and saying that it is absolutely insane to try and use it for something it wasn’t designed for. So here’s a message for the elites, and the Japanese quackademics…HANDS OFF.
I HOPE THE “MARS ONE” PROOF READ THEIR ARTICLE BETTER THAN I DO MINE. LOL
I HAD REMEMBERED WHEN THERE WAS A LOT ABOUT SPACE ELEVATORS AND HAD THOUGHT IT AN INGENIOUS TO FERRY STUFF TO THE MOON. UNTIL ONE DAY. POOF… NO MORE TALKING ABOUT THAT IN THE MAIN STREAM.
I BELIEVE THE ARE NARROWING THE COUNT FOR THE PRIVATE “ONE WAY COLONIZATION” TRIP TO MARS.
I was wondering just the other day what ever happened to the space elevators, too!
Space also provides a secure location for testing and using “suppressed” forms of energy not allowed here on Earth.
By the very nature of the difficulty of getting there, the vast majority of the planet’s people simply cannot know what is really going on up there. All manner of zero point and other kinds of power plants can be built and tested in space or on the moon, and the energy could be disguised as “solar power” from some fictitious grid somewhere.
I would be willing to bet that there is already a futuristically powered base/manufacturing facility at one or more of the Earth/Moon LaGrange points. Clear back in the 70s, I was a member of the L5 Society, whose purpose was to push for a permanent, self-sufficient space station at the L5 point.
Anyone checked there lately?
This is interesting…I’ve been wondering what the US has in its possession since it was willing to give up HAARP, claiming it was old technology, so a system like Japan and China are talking about may already be deployed by the US. We already have our space fleets protecting American interests in space (remember the UK hacker who made those claims). If so, then more nations attempting the same weapons does not bode well as our next world war may be on a more cosmic scale. There is nothing new under the sun.
Dyson spheres Ringworlds anybody I was just watching the STNG episode Relic last night on BBC America. As for beaming energy from space via microwaves that goes back to the sixties. Using solar satellites in orbit around Earth and the dangers of microwave radiation was taken up in the book The Microwaving Of America. Since microwave have military applications like all technologies that China seeks to militarize it should come as no surprise. We can now look forward to being either microwave or nuke to death or both by our deranged oligarchs.
Now one can imagine the cosmic wars.
For there were many tribes vying for power,
and a few willing to roll the dice, for all or nothing…
read the bible, or watch star wars…of course you need your esoteric glasses on…..then have a look at the ancient sites around the world that were blown to smithereens.
Interesting where the ancient alien series is going with all this…..especially comparing pyramid complexes with computer chips and electronic boards when seen from above…..
new interview with G Hancock…..dealing with human sacrifice.
There is a lot of that.
And when your tuned into it; it’s never ending.
But not as wicked as Montezuma’s revenge.
Looking forward to the 12,900 years ago…
to be continued…
Thanks for the link jedi just heard the podcast great interview will be on the lookout for War Gods.
It’s inconceivable that Japan believes building a power plant in space, solar or otherwise, could somehow eliminate the possibility of a stealth American attack, even were it defended by a new partner, China.
More likely these recent public revelations of Russian advanced tech weaponry, Asian advanced space designs, Vatican baptism, and BRICSA monetary independence all comprise a growing international effort to thwart the secret American, military-industrial hegemony by finally forcing it into the light — publicly forcing a fusion between the unchecked black project sector and the American figurehead government.
It’s a game of disclosure brinksmanship. And the American black sector will either desist from its insinuations into international resources, disclose its own defensive capabilities in answer to these others’ plans and escalations, or simply stage a world war — a war these nations and the Vatican hope might provide the alien presence justification to intercede decisively. Checkmate?
It’s interesting to note that we elected a President who likely intended all along to unseat the United States as the world’s only superpower. At least publicly he has loosened the bridle upon our allies and foes alike. But was his intention — or his appointed mission — only to lower the status of the U.S. in order to transition to a NWO?
And has he instead at least temporarily, or unwittingly, emboldened the nation-states whose governmental decision makers are not so far divided from their black sectors as ours? Here’s the question everyone in the world wants to know: How much does Obama know?
