THE SPACE SCRAPBOOK: GERMAN-US COOPERATION SIGNS AGREEMENT FOR ...
Well... while we've been on the subject of space news the past couple of days, here's yet another very strange one to ponder in the context of the past two days' blogs, shared with us by Ms. P.H. There's a meme present in this article that we've encountered in last Sunday's blog, and again in yesterday's blog. Notably, here the meme is repeated in yet a third source, and one that is "all business", so to speak:
Sierra Nevada Corporation and the German Aerospace Center Announce New Dream Chaser® Program Cooperation
First, the deal appears straightforward enough:
"Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC’s) Space Systems and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) announce the signing of a new Dream Chaser® program cooperation during the U.S. German Aerospace Roundtable (UGART) at the 31st annual Space Symposium hosted by the Space Foundation in Colorado Springs, Colorado."
Nothing unusual here other then the usual talk and agreements for international space cooperation, this time between the German government and an American company. Nothing to see hear, move along... right?
The meme occurs in the interesting context of following two paragraphs:
"The cooperation, which was entered into today, builds upon the successful one-year Dream Chaser technical agreement signed in 2013. The new agreement, which extends through 2017, will continue the valuable developmental work completed while identifying new and advanced technologies to pursue in order to further advance the crewed and uncrewed Dream Chaser spacecraft as a flexible low-Earth orbit (LEO) space transportation system for a variety of missions and customers. One of the cooperative activities completed this year was the Dream Chaser for European Utilization (DC4EU) study performed by SNC, OHB Systems AG (OHB) and DLR.
“'We are pleased to continue to work together with SNC as part of their Dream Chaser team,' said Prof. Jan Woerner, chairman of the executive board of DLR. 'We recognize the significant value of the Dream Chaser, especially for LEO and we look forward to working together for new applications. The versatility of the Dream Chaser – crewed or uncrewed - allows for multiple applications such as transportation of cargo and humans as well as direct use for activities such as removing space debris.'" (All emphases added)
Now, recall the original context from Sunday's blog where we first encountered this reference to "space junk," the Russians claimed that they have discovered a group of spy satellites disguised as "space debris" which, they said in an unusual choice of words, had a "state affiliation." As I wrote in Sunday's blog, the choice of words is, if anything, highly unusual. If they were the definite assets of a state, then why not simply say that? "These spy-satellites-cum-space-junk" belong to an unnamed nation." But no, they are "state affiliated." So what's the affiliation? corporate? religious? a political institution or "stateless" political party?
Now we have this interesting bit of "international amity and accord" of the German Space Agency and an American company teaming up to produce a technology that can transport cargo, be either manned or unmanned, and that apparently has a kind of "go, grab, and snab" capability to "remove space debris."
Thus, in the context of the two previous days' blogs, what might we be looking at? Might we be looking at the creation of a publicly proclaimed mission brief for this technology masking a covert one, namely, an anti-spy satellite capability?
If so, then other questions arise: Why develop this particular type of technology? Why not simply concentrate on anti-satellite missiles, ground based "satellite zappers" and so on? Why the need to "remove" a bunch of space debris? Of course, even the word "remove" is capable of several interpretations in this context. Does "remove" imply destruction? Or does it imply, as I have suggested, a "grab and snab" capability? If the latter, the motivations would be clear enough: nations study other nations' secret technology all the time, to gain intelligence about their capabilities, and to asses whether or not "they" are "ahead" of "us." As if to reinforce this interpretation, the very next paragraph summarizes the technology capability:
"SNC’s Dream Chaser is a multi-mission-capable space utility vehicle that is able to flexibly operate as an independent science platform, logistics enabler or orbital servicing vehicle with the ability to deploy, retrieve, repair, replace, refuel or assemble items in space. Dream Chaser provides the only reusable, lifting-body spacecraft with a commercial runway landing capability, anywhere in the world - offering safe, affordable, flexible and reliable transportation to space."
In other words, a 'retrieve, repair, replace" capabilty launchable from any standard commercial runway... Grab, and snab. And the third time in the short space of a few days that "space debris" has been cited as a meme in space-related articles, which began with the strange Russian statement. One time: it's weird; twice, it's a coincidence; but thrice, then we're dealing quite possibly with a deliberate meme, and this time, with a highly suggestive German involvement no less.
Within the context of the previous two days' blogs, however, disturbing speculative possibilities arise. Why, for example, is this the third instance of a reference to "space debris" in such a short period of time? Here, there is no mention of "spy satellites disguised as space debris," but in the context of the Russian article we blogged about last Sunday, the ante and speculative possibilities ramp up considerably. Could it be, that in addition to grabbing and snabbing a bit of someone else's technology, that the other covert purpose is to discover the exact nature of that "state affiliation" that the Russians are talking about? Could the purpose be, in other words, not only to determine what the technological capabilities of some of that "space debris" really are, but who it really belongs to?
And with that, I'll...
...see you on the flip side...

To me the most interesting thing is the name, Dream Chaser. As we know, the names of these programs always reflect the covert purpose but usually only to those who are in the know. Could this be about psychotronic gadgets placed in geosynchronous orbits over certain countries, in the form of space junk, and placed by ???
Psychotronic gadgets that implant subconscious programming while we are asleep, perhaps even influencing our dream life.
The fact that Germany and the US are cooperating here suggests the perpetrators of this psyops come from a particularly powerful 3rd party…
Is psychotronics the ultimate space-based weapon?
Is there a connection between outer space and our unconscious? I believe it was Jon Rappaport at the 2014 Space Conference who talked about meeting a Russian woman whose job used to debriefing cosmonauts about their psychic experiences in space. Apparently they were having visions of their dead relatives and things of that nature. Rappaport refers to one US astronaut who reported that he could look down from his orbiting spacecraft and see people walking around! He was later offered funding to research this further on his own.
Is there something about the mind and outer space that we haven’t grasped yet. Lacerta the Reptilian (see YouiTube for transcripts of her interviews) says that our view of the universe has not really changed in 500 years. I think she is referring here to our materialistic view that sees planets as just dead rocks floating in a lifeless vacuum called space.
climbed up mount Sinai to talk with god, pyramids.
It could be some sort of life force (not yet understood, definitely covered up) energy grid which activates in our mind memories, past memories carried in our instinct memory dna code. Although I believe that we are interacting with it somehow….or…???
I have had para abnormal experiences…they are so common at times I just take it all in stride now. Although some people are playing around with technology/ acting that they use to frighten people or guide them into harmful behavior.
As for rocks being dead things….are you aware of the pizeo electric on quartz and its use in computers.
A possibility here may be that some of the “space junk” belongs to an off-world entity or nation, and the U.S. and Germany want the junk to reverse engineer it for more space weapons. IMHO, there are many E.T’s here and in our Solar System and have been for thousands of years. Some of the E.T.’s are dangerous and want to do us harm and enslave us. Other E.T.’s do not want that. Does anybody remember the “Star Trek” Prime Directive wherein planets and their civilizations were to be observed but never interfered with so that their evolution could proceed naturally? Just observe the fact there is much more “space-related” stories coming out. Nothing is by coincidence, is it?
play around with that scenario being a fact…you know the technology that has aroused in the last decade….and evidence of it being around in ancient times.
Chase this dreams away.
Not fast enough…Snatch-em!;
Can’t hide em?…Grab-em!
Change em; replace em.
Dreams of being an independent nation[s]?
Free from being under the Empire’s Thumb?
How apropos that youtube is now giving notice[not quick enough?]
and putting their thumb screws in-place.
From the microcosm to the macrocosm,
the controls are being hammered into place/space.
As an aside I just finished reading: The Suicide Exhibition by Justin Richards. The title comes from placing museum pieces on display of little value[typical viewer wouldn’t know; if it’s bombed, burned, or stolen so what?]. Hence, a Suicide Exhibit.
It takes place during WW11 and they are trying to puzzle out/there is a third force in this conflict. I don’t mean the Soviets, American or Italians. Maybe it’s some faction of the German forces with access to technology the rest of the Wehrmacht doesn’t have. The Ubermensch? There are the real characters like Aleister Crowley, Hess, Himmler; they are looking into the Black Magic of ancient civilizations and their artifacts. Forbidden knowledge The Vril One of their stolen artifacts set of an alarm . A flying disc that was of German technology; but what of the other disc? A society far more advanced, far mire aggressive, far mire dangerous than our own. There’s another war coming. I am talking about a far greater war. And we are already fighting IT.. An advance technology that overlaps with the occult-maybe it even informed occult thinking originally They are ancient paths/Grids Some still used, others hidden or lost. The Vril will descend from the skies to harvest what they have sown.
I get to the end and…?
The Story Continues in: The Blood Red City[Bummer].
A Nonfiction Target China by F William Engdahl is full of surprises like this one/Medical historians have finally come to the reluctant conclusion that the great flu ‘epidemic’ of 1918 was solely attributable to the widespread use of vaccines . It was the first war in which vaccination was compulsory for all servicemen.
And that’s just one…
In an interview Engdahl talks to the ongoing GMOs/Oil/BRICS economic bloc; we at this site have been discussing this as well. He discusses Target China as the book relates to the ongoing conflicts across the globe and…
indeed above us, into space & beyond…
Oil& Economic Wars With Russia, China & Iran.
[approx. 45 minutes]
Thanks for the link Robert on that interview Engdahl said some things I was thinking. What we’re living under is what is called a Kakistocracy rule by the worst. Would you happen to know what the word for rule by the stupid or the foolish is.
Reminds me of a book by Terry Goodkind:
“The Wizard’s First Rule”
which is: people are stupid.
Not All of the People.
Not a bona fide word but who would dispute that idiocracy is a good candidate? I say only a stupid or a foolish person.
those that lead into slavery go into slavery….
more bad news for the land of the free and the brave…
on a side note, looks like massive layoffs in the automotive coming as well, have a bit of inside info….. and with the stock market being propped up with fiat gonna be hard to cash in on this miserable turn of events.
The automotive industry in the U.S. simply imported labor by sending “their” cars to be manufactured in China. China didn’t make much in profit as it was the Trans-Nationalist who made the Big Buck$.
By 2007 manufacturers were using more than six times as much capital equipment-computers and software- as they did 20 years earlier while doubling the amount of capital used per hour of employee work. The employee’s share of all that extra productivity bucks?
A “Lucky you got a job slave” pat on the back.
Between 2008 and 2012, while the Great Depression[in reality not a recession as advertised] was bleeding workers; industry was piling on new software and innovation to boost productivity and keep profitable with smaller & smaller payrolls.
There is a disquieting relationship between increased productivity and fewer workers – a disconnect building for more than 50 years.
a massive layoff of workers with match book diplomas as tool and die makers (and the machinery that the great rich minds built being destroyed or shipped out) …..The real problem is the spin off jobs they generated, ie society, this time though, the grog imbibers were purposely selected for low iq, and monkey trained in specific areas of automated manufacturing maintenance….Trying to have a discussion with a idiot in a Mercedes and mcmasion is pointless…its a material world afterall….
They garner low six figure wages, as do the other great destroyers, professional teachers…err body snatchers. Low IQ poor people in well paid roles (and plenty of sexual service workers) that use to be reserved for rich intellectuals who enjoyed the simpler offerings of life. Looking for these idiots to provide leadership of self sustaining enviroments ….
as for money being mankinds vehicle for a better world….with dumbo’s at the helm…not much hope…er hopi….lifestyles of the rich and famous …blind leading the blind unfortunately.
there is a big difference of a tool and die maker that was selected to be one from infancy…and say the running of the mill factory worker that has that title.
The later being sensitive to his lack of intellect that a discussion of the shortfall is a subject never to broached.
Many people are intelligent.
The problem is in blindly accepting ways of thought; not continually questioning new models.
It is much easier to learn than to unlearn.
Realize that some stepping stones lead to greater insights; while others are a waste of energy & time.
In the end, one wants to leave behind a “better” world, than that into which they were born.
As the song goes…
It is easier said than done.
And one’s heaven,
is another’s hell.
problem solvers are intelligent, people trained to repeat are not.
The Pavlov dog thing.
I am reminded of Aristotle saying something to the effect that a sophist always demands payment up front, whereas a person that teaches you the truth will accept what you think his knowledge is worth after you have understood it.
…having goodwill towards others is not friendship. Old Aristotle predicted all of this, explained every scenario in such detail that seeing it repeat itself again is ….proof of something very peculiar in this world.
One of the flaws in intelligent people, is not acknowledging that intelligence is only bestowed on a few people. Blessed by the divine.
Some people choose to be evil, and yet prefer to associate with good people, so as not to be reminded of there own shortcomings as being around there own does.
It appears to be a non solvable problem, although all of them get it,when faced with there expiry date, ie death. Very peculiar existence is.

Space junk has been a topic for years, and they are telling us that we have to go up there to get those nasty “burnt out” satellites cause we need more room for “other” satellites. And while we are at it, lets check out some other ones just for good measure. That NASA public relations department needs a new manager. Haven’t these people ever heard of the internet?, and do they think that Russia is stupid?, these guys need a reality check.
I find it amazing with all the conflict on the world stage, feuding elements can kiss and make up where the last frontier of space is involved,Germany/US, Russia/US, etc. Hence, the collective defence of the ISM. Where anything that is a perceived threat to centralized power is dealt with straight away. The “D” word is the greatest threat to centralized power. I do believe world government(singular), would do anything to keep Disclosure from happening. I know a lot of people do not believe there is a single world governing body. But, IMO on matters of the most serious nature, the WWF model is being followed to a “T”.
So Dream Chaser has teamed up with DLR German space program. Now that NASA chose to go with it’s rivals Boeing and Space-X Apollo Command Capsule re dux. Where does the military XB-37-38 mini-shuttle fit into this picture. What do you mean space debris that’s salvage material free to use to build things in space. LEO why not variable LEO-HEO instead more for the buck.
“Dream Chaser?” Really? Ugh.
Does it have lousy legroom and a tendency to catch on fire, too, like the Dream Liner? How about, “Artemis”? Honestly, the names they give these sorts of projects all reek of nerds who played way too much Final Fantasy and WoW in their (suspended) adolescence.
Though I have to admit, first thing that came to mind was the scene in Moonraker when Hugo Drax’s (casting call for Elon Musk, anyone?) Gemini-inspired spaceship swallowed up Roger Moore’s space shuttle and his very un-James Bondian bouffant hairdo, unmussed by a helmet and right at home in zero-gravity (BTW, what on earth were they thinking?… oh well, it was the ’80s… ).
Oh, and nice to know that a private corporation apparently has a “reusable, lifting-body spacecraft with a commercial runway landing capability.” Really? How interesting… a space vehicle apparently decades beyond the capabilities of NASA, which can’t even design its own heavy-lift bottle-rocket and has to use Russian, USSR-era army-surplus rockets.
Theatre of the absurd (and bad theatre at that).
Hey let’s not rag on adolescents that played WoW.
Fresh from RT an interview with the International Space Station. Most of the questions are incredibly anodine and no, nothing about ET or zapping of miscellaneous targets, but there is mention of internet-in-orbit and at the very end (21st minute) some curious remarks by the American astronaut about dreams in space.
Caught that part,people who are there but are not part of the crew.. speaking of dreams, I have this thing when dreaming, that time seems longer in the dream, or is it that there seems to be no sense of time.
No ET questions? That reminded me, about 25 years ago I took a tour of Cheyenne Mountain with my 2 children. At the end they asked if any questions, so i asked if they had tracked any UFOs. I also asked, if a nuclear war broke out, if we would be allowed to stay. That would be a NO to both questions. (My kids turned out ok) That underground fortress was huge, the doors were 3 feet thick. Wether the earth, mars or the moon, it would not be fun to ever feel the wind, rain or the sun on your face again. Maybe some “people” like living that way.
There was the Gerry Anderson TV show “UFO” (‘69/’70) and hostile aliens (inhabiting modified human bodies, with a never explained goal) had hidden something within space junk. And that something was designed to attack regular rocket flights between the moon and earth. (Only one episode involved “space junk”.)
Perhaps humans who’ve been living underground on Mars for say 100,000 years have decided to take a closer look at mankind is upto now that we can send landers and satellites to Mars.
