NASA TESTING DNA SEQUENCING FOR SPACE APPLICATATIONS

NASA TESTING DNA SEQUENCING FOR SPACE APPLICATATIONS

Yesterday, you'll recall, I blogged about that very strange "ESD Dad 'commercial'" that appears to be connected to the new Independence Day movie sequel, with its strange use of US Army logo and website address. I left that one dangling in mid-air, you'll recall, but I also suspect that your mind was running and playing out the same "high octane speculations and implications" as mine was when I was made aware of it.

In that light and context, consider this story shared by Mr. R.B.:

Sequencing DNA in the Palm of Your Hand

Now consider just the first four paragraphs of this one, for they contain (in my opinion) some real zingers:

Much like the miniature, goggle-wearing yellow organisms of the big screen that live to serve, a tiny new device called the MinION™, developed by Oxford Nanopore Technologies, promises to help scientists sequence DNA in space. NASA’s Biomolecule Sequencer investigation is a technology demonstration of the device.

The investigation’s objectives include providing proof-of-concept for the device’s functionality and evaluation of crew operability of a DNA sequencer in the International Space Station’s microgravity environment. While the petite device is already being used to sequence DNA on Earth, it has never been used to do so in space.

Determining the sequence of DNA is a powerful way to characterize organisms and determine how they are responding to changes in the environment. The goal of this technology demonstration is to provide evidence that DNA sequencing in space is possible, which holds the potential to enable the identification of microorganisms, monitor changes in microbes and humans in response to spaceflight, and possibly aid in the detection of DNA-based life elsewhere in the universe.

“The ultimate goal is to be able to do on the space station or on Mars the things we are able to do normally on Earth when we sequence DNA,” said investigator Douglas Botkin, Ph.D. “We want to replicate the laboratory environment, the high-tech equipment and those processes we use terrestrially, and try to demonstrate that functionality in a microgravity environment.”(Emphasis added)

It was that little mention of Mars that, among other things, caused my "suspicion meter" to wiggle a bit: did we just get yet another one of those ambiguously tacit admissions from Never A Straight Answer (NASA) that they strongly suspect (or know) of life on Mars? Notice also their hopes that the technology might be adapted to the "detection of DNA-based life elsewhere in the universe." Of course, all the focus here is on "microbes" and similar "small-sized stuff," but what can be used for microbes can also be used, as the article indicates, for humans and other "large stuff." And of course, such a technology could be very handy right here on Earth for determining, as the article suggests, changes in human DNA due to "outside influence," or even(to really let the high octane imagine run wild here) to test for people that look like us and talk and walk like us, but who aren't us, but merely "genetic cousins," so one has to wonder exactly what's going on here...

... especially in the light of yesterday's blog about strange commercials for "space soldiers" being run in conjunction with the new sequel to Independence Day and with US Army logo and website links very prominently displayed. Are we being given a glimpse into some deeper reality that is perhaps taking place, or about to take place, "out there"? Or, as usual, is my imagination and ever-so-dubiously performing suspicion meter giving me another false positive?

You tell me....

  1. not sure nathan. you might be getting sucked into another false dialectic. and we might be getting set up for another one as well. “you’re either with us or against us” comes to mind here.

    feels like a goal of the soul-less psychopaths is to get us to willingly remove and/or ignore our own souls. or at least to take their word for it and ignore ours as they tell us to ignore it.

    1. You could be right zendog, but when I see the images from NASA of the earth, or look at the supposed moon landing I can’t help but chuckle, none of it looks real, only time will tell, whenever I do a pipe ceremony I always ask for discernment, also Nikola Tesla I think was onto the magnoelectricity that permeates everything in and on this earth he was truly a genius it is a shame what TPTB did to him, stay well

  2. In my opinion NASA has never been to space and never will, all I’ve seen from them are fake CGI pictures of the Earth and every other stupid thing they do, nothing but a bunch of liars and con artists sucking up as much taxpayer money as they can get their greedy hands on I would like to get them all in a room yes , so I can ridicule them for their pathetic attempt at faking outer space lol , bunch of morons

    Yes Sandygirl,
    The AI and those that mirror its soulless intellect; perhaps, have their signatures affixed the The Devil’s contract.
    I haven’t seen the details; but I’ve seen the soulless product and it’s destructive signatures writ large across Plant Earth.

  4. Wouldn’t you like to get all those people at NASA in a room, and on a big screen show them the photo’s of Cydonia, and pass out free copies of Richard C. Hoagland’ book “Dark Mission”. The public relations department at NASA needs an information injection of fact and truth, together with the resounding “loud thud” of jaws hitting the floor.
    If the breakaway civilization are going to the moon to deliver the newspapers on a daily basis, then NASA is the most incompetent body of goons.

  5. The slow drip from NASA re: life Out There.

    They’ve known for decades of the fact of microbal life in near-earth space and on Mars. In fact, the last big msm report about this was an English team which sent modified weather baloons into near space to collect bio samples, which they identified by their meteoric impact on the baloon’s sticky-coated skin, and they found masses of biological material streaming to earth from space.

    And this is exactly what they are saying this little DNA kit is for: testing those little critters on the ISS and Mars.

    So it’s an acknowledgement — of sorts — from NOTSO that life is indeed out there.

    1. That’s what I suspect. Like water in space life is everywhere it can be however it can be. Most of Earth’s biological mass is inside the Earth in rocks and sediments. From new studies it appears to derive its energy more from hydrogen gas than carbon dioxide, oxygen, and sulphur. Perhaps meteoric life exists in all planets and solar bodies and wherever else hydrogen can be found. Perhaps this pre-dominate universe wide micro organism mutates and adapts to every other fuel source such as oxygen, carbon dioxide, Sulphur, methane and whatever else as it encounters them in whatever environmental conditions it finds them. Perhaps environmental conditions is the regulator to the forms life takes on but is not a regulator of where life can exist. Perhaps it is indeed everywhere including in some form in the Sun and other stars? Consciousness may indeed be co-created with all matter and in all matter in a deeper sense than most realize.

  6. Well DNA is a crystalline structure with resonance – and therefore non-local – properties. The mind, as distinct from the brain, can arguably be described as a non-local “something”.
    So what if in some non-technological manner – say using a certain type of meditation – the mind could actually alter DNA… its “own” or pertaining to “others”…

  7. This little device could be handy for the soldiers fighting hybrids and little green men, especially if they have a way to target the genetic structure of these beings.

  8. To me, the phrase “…and try to demonstrate that functionality in a microgravity environment” seems key – especially since it did not need to be uttered in the description. In turn, this suggests application to, as Joseph put it, ‘genetic cousins’ in a zero-g environment. From there, the possibilities are very science fiction -like…

    Shades of Who Goes There-Invasion Of The Body Snatchers the novel. Or Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep or are you really human or are you Not Of This Earth passing as one of us.

    The rise of neuro-weapons is here: aimed at shifting the emotional and cognitive capacities of the mind.
    Their newest tools will give them nothing less than an increasing and precise control over the most profound factor in our lives –
    our own minds.

    The Osam bin Ladens Bin Dead Agin & the Gold Dinar Kaddafi’s of the future are not what’s on the menu. We are.
    Your DNA is going to co0vict you; if they want it to.
    It’s all about CONTROL!

    1. Robert, maybe we ARE the genetic cousins, the ones who are able to see The Big Picture.
      I have talked to too many people where I see they are knowledgeable about what’s going on and then I’m sad to find they are thinking with their head and not their heart. They believe they will be ok because they have money or an important job. Too many think the same way.
      AI has no spirit or soul and neither do psychopaths who plan dominion over a prison planet.

      1. agreed sandygirl and then some. feels like one loses their spirit or soul by dominating a prison planet. what comes around goes around.
