If you're following all the strange space news recently, this one, shared by Mr. V.G., surely has to be filed under the "Strangest" category. We've all seen the news about the USA's congress recently passing a space mining bill that, in effect, says that private corporations can keep whatever they mine and "bring back" from asteroids. Now, I've pointed out numerous times that all the hype and talk about mining asteroids, and private space company ventures, has one overarching flaw: doing so is completely impractical from a cost-benefit point of view if the only technology available to do so is the chemical rocket. While costs of launching such rockets has come down, it still remains a hefty financial effort. And on this basis, I've advanced the idea that all the talk of space mining, and the recent rush to pass laws concerning it, might be a back-handed way of admitting that other technologies of getting into space might be available.

But now consider this very strange story, apparently coming from NASA itself:

How We Could Build a Death Star

Now, as the article itself points out, NASA isn't really telling anyone how to build a death star:

For all you boys and girls who dream of one day ruling the galaxy with a tremendous weapon of mass destruction, NASA has some suggestions for you. The trick is to mine asteroids and use the material to construct the Death Star directly in space.

In a video on Wired, Brian Muirhead, chief engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, illustrates how the Asteroid Redirect Mission will look at the feasibility of asteroid mining, and although the mission doesn’t exactly show you how to build a Death Star, it will do something nobody has done before. In 2023, a probe will capture a boulder and carry it into lunar orbit, where a group of astronauts will later visit to mine some of the asteroid material.

But what NASA is implying is the real possible reason for all of the sudden hype aboout asteroid mining in recent years: asteroids would provide the raw materials for mega-engineering projects in space of an unheard of scale. And it is planning "proof of concept" missions to demonstrate the point, albeit with the old trusty standby, the large bottle rockets of chemical rockets.

Which raises a high octane speculation: are we really looking at something else here, some other purpose or reason behind the sudden push to go out an mine asteroids? Is the real purpose that of constructing large scale mega-projects? And if so, why the push? Recently in a conversation with me, former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Catherine Austin Fitts suggested that this might be a kind of response to the information presented in Norman Berglund's book, The Ring Makers of Saturn, wherein he argued that enormous artificial structures appear to be "mining" the rings of Saturn itself. If so, then they are clearly not human. And if so, some sort of response has to be made, and that response will be very expensive.... and, it will also carry inevitable military implications...

.... to the tune of several trillions of (missing) dollars, over time... and that part of the story is indeed what we have seen.

See you on the flip side...

    “Space News” has begun to feel like “Space disinformation” to me after following closely the revelations by Corey Goode on Gaiamtv’s “Cosmic Disclosure” and several other sites, Randy Cramer, Andrew Basiago, Capt. Mark Richards, John Lear, Dr. Pete Peterson and others. Technologies exist, according to these sources, that are far in advance of the “Death Star” idea. Mining asteroids and moons has been going on for decades. If these reports are true, then NASA is continuing to fulfill its role as a sideshow for the American public while introducing in low-key but “exotic” sounding announcements concepts that prepare humanity to one day learn the truth of what has long been an interstellar industry and military presence. Such a disclosure is racing to the front page at increasing velocity. My guess is that one possible wake up call may come when the public learns, probably from Mr. Putin, and sees proof that it was our own scalar weapon that turned the twin towers to dust. Let us balance MSM news releases from any government agency with testimonies from Americans who have actually lived out in space, piloted space craft, time traveled, dealt with ETs, or traveled to Mars.

    Anyone watched “The Expanse” last night looks like The Breakaway Civlization is making it move. First a fifty crew belter spaceship last night a Mars Colony Space Navy warship taken out.

    The original post went under moderation. This time no links or quotes.
    The West’s grip on total spectrum dominance is loosening; not by choice, but by those who wish to set their own course.
    NASA’s Death Star is iconic of the current West culture to destroy/versus the East’s to create. I linked the article pertaining to this by F William Engdahl: As the East Creates, the West Tries To Destroy. So the article above about the Death Star reads according to that script.
    I the linked a relatively unknown scholarly piece about an extremely ancient disease effecting some civilizations that have been expose over thousands of years.

      This disease directly links to the West’s culture to destroy culture, and the BRICSA are by no means immune to it…

    Hey Walking and all,
    Ya remember that old Marx Bros flick with Harpo posing as Groucho. They’re both dressed the same. Groucho walks into a room with a mirrored door and sees himself. Then Harpo moves the mirror and gets caught in the open so mirrors every movment Groucho makes?

    Curious. When we know the programmers are adjusting their agenda so feverishly to keep up with us (like you said about their obvious efforts to coopt all like the secret space conference), what’s to stop us from adding in a few jukes they might wanna keep up with in spite of themselves. Like perhaps even induce them to being kind, considerate and useful to the rest of us?

    Djya ever wonder if old mountain goats get skilled enough and foresighted enough to work their predator’s jukes? Like the old joke: The bull senor, he does not always lose.

  6. Nathan on December 28, 2015 at 6:32 pm

    I never listen to anything NASA says, they have terrible propoganda, awful bubbles in space, even a guy caught in a divers suit in the ISS, very fake all cgi very sad indeed , just another psyop

    There’s a ‘tension’, here, in humanity’s current technological position:

    If there is NO breakaway civilization or ‘ancient elders’, humanity is poised to work-out ways (even with ‘bottle rocket’ technology) to expand into the solar system. I imagine that initial forays will be government-financed in one way or another, much like the railroads and aeronautics industry. I.e., at a loss. At some point, new discoveries and efficiencies will make the emergent-areas profitable. Then, the government will sell their stake at pennies-on-the-dollar to business entities. Science fiction explored this probable-future way back in the 20s-50s, complete with economic realities. Old stuff.

    If there IS a breakaway civilization or ‘ancient elders’, then (ordinary) humanity is in a pickle. Once power is gained, it is rarely given up. (At least voluntarily.) Expect to see all sorts of ‘hopes’ for mining, Belters, colonies, etc., to be floated and then come to nothing. Earth will be ‘restrained’. It will be kind of like it is in “Blade Runner”: No longer at the center of the action, and even ‘quaint’. There will be progress in irrelevant things, like grills/bumpers on cars, but no ‘mode-threatening’ breakthroughs will be permitted.

    As (normal) humanity gradually grows technologically and any ‘breakaway civilization’ expands its operations, I would expect there will be a moment when the breakaway civilization cannot be ‘shielded’ from (normal) humanity, any more. ‘Intent’ will be what to watch-for, at that time… (It is even more ambiguous with ‘ancient elders’…)

    (I would expect Saturn to be the ‘action’ place of the solar system. It’s ring-material – water – would make perfect fuel, once electrolicized, and even be melted & recast into structures. Even ice-composite spaceships. Most importantly, this ‘asset’ is not at the base of a gravity-well. Ceres might be exploited in the same way, although watch out for ‘incoming’.)

      I have my suspicions that Venus may have had oceans and life before the Earth. If so whatever evolved on ancient Venus may have tried to evacuate to the Earth when Venus went through its cataclysm. (possibly as early as a few hundred thousand years ago according to some scientists) Perhaps Venusians had already mastered genetic manipulation on Venus before they came here and had even genetically modified themselves however they saw fit. Perhaps while Earthlike Venus was still sufficiently different to make life extremely difficult and uncomfortable for Venusians upper class genetically modified elite. Perhaps life sustaining artificial biomes are easier for them to maintain outside our atmosphere and especially around Saturn due to all the resources located there. Perhaps they tried several times to Venus form the Earth but all attempts and theories on how to do so prove problematic. Perhaps they still view us as potentially valuable resources. But as you say they will make sure we never evolve to threaten their supremacy. What if while they manipulated us and our technology the past hundred years in another potential Venusforming scheme our elites secretly developed the means to checkmate the Venusians technological dominance over us enough to go rogue. Perhaps they now seek to halt the atmospheric and climate changes they were originally charged with carrying out. What if there is now a cold war between them and us and neither side can afford to push it too far for fear of mutual destruction. What if greys, mothmen, dragons and other monsters of lore have a basis in genetic engineering from these Venusians for the sole purpose of punishing, manipulating or controlling men through fear and further genetic manipulations and culling. Perhaps these monsters were not created in sufficient numbers to show up in the fossil record because they were intentionally limited production items.

      • Roger on December 29, 2015 at 12:27 pm

        It occurs to me that the Annunaki themselves were likely genetically created by the possible Venusian overlords to come to Earth and work on various tasks. The Annunaki could have been created much more intelligent and stronger than us, and were intelligent enough to come up with the bright idea of creating an inferior human to do their work for them. This allowed the Annunaki to themselves become overlords themselves which led them to rebel against the Venusians who couldn’t breath or live on Earth but had the idea to Venusform the Earth so they could. This would be the end of the Annunaki because they were created to live on Earth and would not be able to breath and live on a world compatible with their Venusian creators. Perhaps this conflict was why there was an ancient war between the rebellious Annunaki and Venusians. Perhaps the Annunaki did find their human GMO slaves fair because they created us in their image. Perhaps it was these out of control hybrids that started the war with the Venusians if genetic safeguards against rebellion was engineered into the Annunaki but not into the Annunaki created humans or their hybrid offspring. Having learned their lesson the Venusians created the greys as their go betweens but now since the cold war they may be making a human looking Annunaki 2.0 to infiltrate our governments and retake control of this planet. Perhaps our elite have decided to copy not only the Venusian technological feats but also their form of governance which is totalitarian and utilitarian to the core with GMO servants engineered specifically for specialized task only. There are no notions of rights among the Venusians and everyone exists to serve their interests and only their interests. Perhaps these Annunaki 2.0 have made further inroads into taking back this planet then any of us might suspect.

        Roger, the biggest swept-under-the-rug ‘mystery’ in our solar system is the ‘new’ surface of Venus.

        Based on crater counts (i.e., the near-lack of craters), planetary scientists ‘declared’ that Venus had undergone a recent (geologically-speaking) PLANET-WIDE ‘resurfacing’. This has since become declared-dogma, in spite of the fact that no credible ‘mechanism’ for this huge-event has been worked-out and that no other body in the solar system has ‘resurfaced’ itself in this manner.

        In my mind, the field is wide open for ANY event to cause Venus’ resurfacing, from internal or external stressors to interplanetary/interstellar warfare. Whatever it was, the energies-involved boggle the mind…

    The West’s grip on “total spectrum dominance” is loosening; not by choice, but by those who wish to set their own course.
    NASA’s “Death Star” is iconic of the current West’s culture of “to destroy”; versus the East’s “to create”. An perfect example of this is an article that F William Engdahl posted today/”As the East Creates, the West Tries to Destroy.
    So the above article on NASA’s Death Star is right on script.

    Below is another piece that ties this to an “alien disease” that is ancient in origin:

        I think it’s a matter of interpretation of my first sentence above. It is a bit fuzzy. It should be interpreted as the elite who have had a psychotic break not Dr. Ferrell. I should have chosen my words a bit more carefully. I apologize for any confusion.

  9. DownunderET on December 28, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    Well lets just imagine that “A” new technology appears, and then these space miners go out and “mine”, well the next step is to “select” an asteroid, but which one????
    The selection process might be a hit and miss affair, unless you’ve been there before maybe. There is a lot going on here, but in my opinion it’s a lot of wind, because the guys “with” the space vehicles that do not use rockets, won’t part with this technology, I mean would you??
    So, they ain’t going anywhere anytime soon, unless “somebody” shows up who has been here a very long time ago.

  10. Aridzonan_13 on December 28, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    Hmmm, seems like there was a possible meteor redirection mission a few years ago over Russia. This IMHO, is already being done with tech far beyond what NASA is admitting to at the present time. As I’ve said previously, if the BRICS start getting the brunt of large meteor strikes, it will be from in place Star Wars assetts.

    And the pope just declared that for some this may have been the last Christmas that they will celebrate, putting it in the context of the result of world conflicts. But what if he had something else in mind (just what have they seen with their giant telescope “they know what is coming”) and perhaps he really was talking about not a terrestrial war ending Christmas celebrations, but a cosmic one.

  12. marcos toledo on December 28, 2015 at 11:17 am

    Thanks for bring up that show Ramura that what springs to mind. Anyone here remember the old Buster Grabbe Flash Gordon serials and the spaceships depicted in them take away the sparklers and what you have is pure Tesla design aircraft. Asteroid mining is a old meme going way back to the twenties thirties of the last century in science fiction. The Death Star would be the perfect design for a Starship. It’s interesting that the UN government lead enforcer in “The Expanse” is a Indian woman shades of the old Raj Sepoy native fronts for the PTB the real powers behind the throne.

    SyFy channel has a new show on Tuesday nights at 10pm/Eastern (check your local guide) called “Expanse.” I caught up with the first four episodes online.

    It is set a couple of hundred years in the future. Earth/Luna are under “U.N. control.” Mars is somewhat hostile, but there seems to be diplomatic communication still open. Then there are the “Belters,” the worker-bee’s (some formerly from Earth and/or Mars, running away from their past, mostly) in the asteroid belts, doing the mining — especially of ice to use as water, which is very precious — which are definitely the worker-and-lower class rowdy types.

    I am now up to Episode Five and it seems SOMEONE is trying to start a “Cosmic War,” using a false-flag, no less…

    The visuals are amazing for a TV series, and SyFy seems to be putting forth some very high-end concepts in their January/February line-up of new shows.

    Check out “Expanse.” Talks about the “breakaway civilization!”

      Intelligence has controlled Hollywood for decades now. It is their primary tool for the control of the population along with the MSM. At some point in the past what was once called a “show” became a “program”. This should give you a clue as to the purpose of televised entertainment today. What better way to marginalize the work of people in the alternative news community like Richard Dolan and Dr. Ferrell than to make it a form of entertainment for programming purposes. You have but to examine the dystopian “future” they are portraying to understand what that message might be.
      This “program” is most likely a response to the Secret Space Program conferences. It is a method to control the opposition these conferences represent dressed up in a syfy TV series. It is just another psy op using buzzwords from the conferences. Watch the show from this perspective and you may just discern their objective.

    It appears someone has had a psychotic break from reality here. We have the elite, who own the corporations, attempting to rule the world through their trade agreements; Elon Musk saying he plans to move the elite to Mars in the event of WW3 in order to save the human race; NASA saying they plan to mine asteroids to build enormous structures in space; “aliens” mining the rings of Saturn; and the promise of eternity with your frozen head and a technology that will never come to fruition; all while the elite are driving the world toward WW3.
    Sounds to me like one big psi op.; the old magicians cups and balls; everything is misdirection intended to confuse and keep your mind off the reality of the current situation. Just another play for the advancement of their NWO.
    I’m so sure all this will happen with giant bottle rockets and wishing upon a star.
