ELON MUSK, AND THE RACE TO CONTROL THE RACE FOR MARS(AND INSURE ...
.,. and while we're on the subject of space commericalization, "space Bilderbergers," astronauts and cosmonauts in Jedi Knights costumery, Death Stars, and Mars, ponder this article that was shared by Mr. S.D. carefully:
Interesting Plausibility that Elon Musk Could Become a Trillionaire with a City on Mars by 2040
Mr. Musk clearly wants to be on Mars, permanently, and soon. But I hope you caught something that caught my eye when I read this article, and weren't distracted by diagrams of big rocket boosters, stories of reusable boosters, building and testing craft for the journey to Mars, and so on. What really caught my eye was one rather short little statement:
"Elon Musk and his new investors (Google and Fidelity) were planning to create a lower altitude network of thousands of satellites for high speed internet service. The plan is to create a global internet service that could help fund the city on Mars. Spacex satellite network would have up to 4000 smaller mass produced satellites that would fly at about 700 kilometers for faster response and communication speeds."
Now, doing a little dot-connecting here, this means that Google, with all its ties to the NSA, and Fidelity, are major stakeholders in Mr Musk's space enterprises, and therefore, major stakeholders in his Mars ambitions. And thus, an implication (and some of our trademark high octane speculation) immediately follows. Assume, for a moment, that Mr. Musk and his corporation are successful in getting to Mars, and establishing a permanent human colony there. What will they find or discover? Answer: we probably won't be told, other than in very vague terms, for two very simple reasons: (1) it will become somehow a proprietary secret of the corporation, and (2) because of the NSA's indirect involvement via Google, for "national security" reasons. Corporate and government security is a pretty thick veil to pierce.
But there is, in my high octane speculative opinion, and even more intriguing implication in the above statement, and that is the fact that Fidelity is a major stakeholder in Musk's space enterprises. Fidelity is, of course, one of America's and the world's largest investment firms; mutual funds, financial management, retirement investments, and so on, are its stock in trade.
But so is something else: insurance, which is to say, risk reduction. This is a clear sign, in other words, that we are looking at the commercialization of space right now, for real, and in addition to this, we're looking at the standard Veneto-Western model of investment and risk management at work: the bankrollers and insurers get together to fund a risky project: the funding of a few galleys to go trade for some spices in the risky waters of the eastern Mediterranean, for a stake in the profits of what's brought back, but should the whole thing run afoul of solar storms or intergalactic Saracens, there's always the insurance to fall back on...
And that too, raises its own problematic implications. Insurance companies have to be large enough to insure such a venture. A one trillion dollar policy, in case something goes wrong, implies a financial system with hidden financial resources far beyond what has been publicly disclosed (and that brings us right back to one of my favorite hypotheses, namely, that such a system has secretly been in place at least since 1947, if not shortly before). And underwriting policies for something this risky implies yet something else: actuarial tables. How would one go about compiling the actuarial tables for such a venture. Large and powerful insurance firms like Lloyds or Fidelity obvious have the wherewithal to hire the mathematicians to compile and model such things, but ultimately, actuarial tables are compiled from a long history of actual results and tested against them.
So the question becomes, where did that putative historical database come from...? And with that, we're back at Google, and the NSA... It does make one wonder....
See you on the flip side...

It looks like we are trucking along at the projected pace
Reminds me of the Rockwell Institute publication of the ” Integrated Space Plan ” from 1989
Then take a look under the hood of this little home power kit and what it might imply for other hardware they are concocting in the basement:
TESLA IS ON TO THE NEXT BIG THING WITH A CONSUMER GRADE OFF-GRID ENERGY SOLUTION
Tesla is working on a battery that can power your home and even help large-scale utilities store energy more efficiently, according to company chief executive Elon Musk. On an investor call Wednesday, Musk said the designs for a home or business battery are already complete and will likely be unveiled to the public “in the next month or two.” Production could be as little as six months away, he added. While there’s no word yet on price, Tesla’s battery and charging technology could ultimately wind up saving you money on your electric bill. Although many of today’s homes draw energy directly from the electricity grid, the spread of cheap solar panels means it’s never been easier to generate some of your own energy. Storing renewables efficiently has been a big bottleneck for consumers and for utilities alike, but if Tesla’s stationary battery takes off, it could change the way electricity is priced and traded on a market scale. (For years, it’s been many people’s dream to sell excess energy back to the grid.)
For the millions of consumers frustrated with their power companies thanks to frequent outages and poor customer service, the batteries could be a boon. In general, the choices for how people power their homes is relatively limited. Most have to rely exclusively on their local utility providers. Getting a generator can be expensive — some homeowners pay around $20,000 for back-up generators that run on natural gas. So Tesla is eyeing a market that might be ripe for innovation.
Personally I think this is all wind, and I don’t think Mr. Musk, or anybody else is going to Mars anytime soon. There are too many factors in a manned flight to Mars, excluding the Secret Space Program of course, and considering the time to get there and all the other factors in a flight, that has never been done by “conventional” propulsion, then I suspect that it is going to be just ink and funding.
Yes, it’s a cover story.
The question, is what’s really going on behind the smoke & mirrors?
Hear hear… couldn’t agree more….
It’s entirely possible, in my opinion, using off books propulsion tech hidden behind conventional rocket tech. Just put a little burner on the bottom for show, turn all that extra space in the STS into living quarters and storage, and bam suddenly a 30 or 100 day mission isn’t all that bad. After all if your fusion reactor is the size of a truck that leaves you a lot of space for pimping your ship. Conventional rockets… Good luck with that.
Of course, “they” pretty much “know” what they’re going to find. In fact, the site was found long ago.
The “fix” is in. Just like the purposed implosion of the world economies. The AIG fronting a “surprise” reaction to the economic collapse. The Bankster’s gun to the government’s head.
And those bankers that touch upon this “mars/space” connection, are short-lived.
“They’re” following the script. The question is, how ancient is it?
I read where Elon is also partnering and lending his name to a joint venture with BASF and Dow to manufacture a line of synthetic male pheromone modeled on Musk’s own personal scent to be called “Musk Oil”. Initial beta tests on female college students were very optimistic – it was reported that a 68 year old, 270 pound statistics professor with a drooping toupee who volunteered to trial the product obtained 348 friend requests on Facebook from female students and bedded over 30 young women from local bars within a period of two days.
It is expected that “Musk Oil” will be included in the Mars Expedition survival kits so that the nobility of the human spirit can be preserved through the union of the flight’s science officer and Koko the chimp in the event of disaster.
Could Elon Musk have to consider and include sabotage like what happen to OTRAG in the Congo in the 1970s. And why this obsessive enslavement to no good rocket technology. T.T. Brown and Robert Searle proved electro-magnetic in the 1950s-60s was viable alternative.
Ok, let’s say there may be some ACTUAL data on space trade initiatives so that some sort of actuarial tables could be drawn up on a forecasting basis. But on the other hand, the penchant, on the part of some of the oligarchs, for predictive scenario-driven decision making seems to be having disastrous results, at least for the destiny of real human beings as opposed to some AI (artificial intelligence) ambient. This seems to indicate that they are still in a “rough and ready” stage, a 1492 moment when, though Europeans had actually visted the Americas, full scale “modern” trade was just being started up.
Now let’s go beyound the mere 30 to 40 year forecasting that seems to emerge in the various official scenarios and look at the centuries.
1492 led to about 2 centuries of Spanish imperial power, but by the 1700s Spain had frittered away its wealth. And then there was the Gutenberg Revolution, the spread of knowledge against which the Spanish church-cum-feudal aristocracy waged a bloody but in the end fruitless fight.
Today the point is this: with or without insurance scams, financial-psyops trickery, implants and ingestion of monatomic gold, could “Mr. Global” hope to attain dominion of the solar system for 200 years? When his current population base is in a pitiful state from the cultural point of view? And when apparently rival “Mr. Globals” from Moscow, Delhi, Peking, Tokyo etc. are going about their own “legitimate business” in space?
PS Consider this my set of questions for a forthcoming vidchat!
It may be that their predictive scenario driven decision making works, but the outcomes are intended or designed to be what it is for whatever purpose they have. And if mr global’s et al’s ideologies are morally perverted in most aspects, it’s not really surprising that things are how they are today. They know what works but their agenda is taking us to another direction, theirs..
Stands to reason that the surfs can’t invest in this private venture and reap any rewards.
Perhaps the remainder 99% ought to get behind the crowd funded Mars One mission and pip the elites to all that booty…
And what will those astronauts eat? NASA is paying for this study.
