RUSSIA BUILDING OUT ITS ASTEROID DETECTION SYSTEM, AND A LOOK BACK AT THE CHELYABINSK METEOR

RUSSIA BUILDING OUT ITS ASTEROID DETECTION SYSTEM, AND A LOOK BACK AT ...

This article from Russia's TASS news agency was shared by Ms. M.W., and it contains a number interesting statements if one is willing to read between the lines a bit, and to place it in a certain interesting context. THat context is the February 15, 2013 Chelyabinsk meteor, a spectacular event any way one looks at it. What was odd is that, about one month prior to the event, then Russian President(and current Prime Minister) Rmitri Medvedev stated that the Russian Federation should build out an asteroid detection and defense system, with or without international cooperation and support. At the time, he also stated that asteroids threatening to Earth could be targeted by Russian thermonuclear weapons or "other means" of destruction, a comment which he left hanging in the air without further elaboration.

THen, after the Chelyabinsk event, Mr. Medvedev again called for the Russian Federation to build out such a detection system. As the following article indicates, they're doing it:

Russia to create system of warning about dangerous space bodies — newspaper

Note the first two paragraphs here:

It is necessary to develop hardware and software systems for the collection, processing and analysis of information about potentially dangerous objects of natural origin", TsNIIMASH spokesperson Olga Zharova told Izvestia. She said the system development efforts envisage international cooperation, in particular, the exchange of data on the near-Earth space will be offered to the world's leading space agencies.

The system development will be carried out during the creation of the third stage of the Automated Space Hazard Warning System (ASPOS OKP), the funding for which, according to the Federal Space Program for 2016-2025, is planned at 4.1 billion rubles ($61.25 million).

"The system’s aim is to identify a dangerous cosmic body not three hours before its collision with the Earth, but well in advance, so that we could be prepared and in the future to take certain steps to divert and destroy comets or asteroids", full member of the International Academy of Astronautics Gennady Raikunov told the newspaper. (Emphasis added)

Note also the article linked in the TASS story:

Russia's improved ballistic missiles to be tested as asteroid killers

In the second story you'll note that Russia is planning an actual test of its anti-ballistic missile system on an asteroid in 2036, and specific mention is made of the Chelyabinsk incident:

YEKATERINBURG, February 11. /TASS/. Russian scientists have developed a project of upgrading intercontinental ballistic missiles to destroy near-Earth meteorites 20-50 meters in size, leading researcher of the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau Sabit Saitgarayev told TASS on Thursday.

The scientists would like to test the improved missiles’ capabilities against the asteroid Apophis expected to come dangerously close to the Earth in 2036, the scientist said.

"Most rockets work on boiling fuel. Their fueling begins 10 days before the launch and, therefore, they are unfit for destroying meteorites similar to the Chelyabinsk meteorite in diameter, which are detected several hours before coming close to the Earth. For this purpose, intercontinental ballistic missiles can be used, which requires their upgrade," the scientist said.

In other words, by 2036 Russia wants to have in place a missile defense system capable of defending against small asteroids, and plans to test it by blowing one up. Talk about sending messages! for you'll note that the article also queitly implies that while some missiels would have to be "upgraded", this may be a polite way of saying they already have been. After all, Russia has just revealed to the world the capabilities of its cruise missiles, and jas just unveiled a troubling new ICBM, with mirved warheads capable of striking anywhere in the world from any trajectory whatsoever, and modifiable in flight. The capabiltities of this ICBM require sophisticated space-based tracking, easily adaptable for things like missile defense and tracking asteroids. Recall also the story I blogged about a couple of weeks ago about the US wanting to move its satellites farther out in orbit to make them more difficult to target. This is therefore, I suggest, Russia's response.

But now let's go a bit further in our high octane speculations. As the first article notes, this new detection system, which I suspect is but a data processing system for data the Russians are already tracking and receiving, is to be an international effort, and again, the linked article connects all of this to the Chelyabinsk incident. Thus, what we may also be looking at is the build out of the Russian component of an international planetary detection and defense system.
And all of that puts the Chelyabinsk incident into a very interesting perspective, for it raises the possibility that maybe the meteor didn't simply wander into Earth's path, but rather, was "thrown", so to speak...
See you on the flip side...

    Let’s not forget the attempts to keep near-space weapon-free by at least a few on the sane side of the fence:

    A glimpse into new death technologies under construction is in legislation introduced by Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinch. His unsuccessful Space Preservation Act of 2001 was intended to ban space deployment of:

    * electronic, psychotronic and information weaponry

    * high altitude ultra low frequency weapons

    * plasma, electromagnetic, sonic and ultrasonic weapons

    * laser weapons

    * strategic, theater, tactical or extraterrestrial weapons

    * chemical biological, environmental climate or tectonic weapons

    * chemtrails (this item was stricken from a later version, suggesting duress)

    In their quest to remain top dog in the kill chain, the purveyors of perpetual war have deliberately dimmed earth’s life-giving sunlight,5 and reduced atmospheric visibility with lung-clogging particulates and polymers.6 This ecological terrorism has severely compromised public health, according to thousands of testimonials. Years of mass appeals to legislators, media and military officials for information, and for cessation of catastrophic atmospheric degradation, have fallen on deaf bureaucratic ears. Public awareness of what befalls us remains as murky as our skies because those “in the know” are muzzled by national secrecy laws and Americans have no authority to challenge matters of national security.

  2. I tend to agree since the US Government, which has little to do with the country and/or its people, has been wanting and trying, to instigate a war with Russia and/or China, since the ‘end’ of the so called, Cold War. There is in fact, a rather sneaky one going on now using technology unknown and thought to belong in the realm of SciFi, not in reality, by the general public.

    The ‘New World Order’ is coming out of the closet, in a manner of speaking, and openly declaring itself with obviously rigged elections and open acknowledgement that it owns and runs ‘ISIS’ and Al Quaida, while the American people are still steeped in unbelief brainwashing. The US (p)Resident has openly endorsed communism and Islam and many USA voters are showing a willingness to put another, and worse, traitor in the Whitehouse.

    I keep thinking that I’m having a loony toon nightmare and everyone is in it. I expect to go two dimensional any day now.

  3. “And all of that puts the Chelyabinsk incident into a very interesting perspective, for it raises the possibility that maybe the meteor didn’t simply wander into Earth’s path, but rather, was “thrown”, so to speak…”

    I thought the same as I read the article. Alot of these disruptive occurrences might just be planned. I suggest that perhaps there is a massive bot or think-tank that calculates algorithmically the necessary steps to ensure certain outcomes, politically, environmentally, planetary: https://www.wired.com/2014/08/nsa-monstermind-cyberwarfare/ (And don’t forget just about everything we do forms part of that algorithm)

    Perhaps the rock was indeed thrown and we’re now watching the anticipated ripples move across the pond. The question would then be, what would be the expected outcome?

    1.To continue to militarise space? Yes
    2. To continue the dollar wars in that new arena? Yes
    3. To protect Earth from an invading group of outsiders? Yes
    4. To ensure ownership of Earth remains as is? Yes

    I read all of Sitchin’s books, and loved them so much I gave them all away so I don’t have the book from where I remember the following:

    That this planet is currently being ‘owned’ by Marduk and his offspring, as he had found a way to unlawfully keep our planet from being handed to the rightful ‘owner’ who is Enlil’s son, Ninurta. (something about a promised return in 2000 years from memory) If Ninurta is interested in reclaiming Earth, he will have to return and that would obviously mean a big war. So it seems rather reasonable that Marduk & co need to continue to militarise the solar system. And they must go public about it because people now can see what they get up to. So they need to make these little ripples and make humans believe that there are these cold wars going on amongst their puppets.

    They are using a typical economic ploy: create a problem and sell the solution. The problem for them is the imminent return of someone who lawfully claims this planet, and their solution is to ensure that they are well equipped to make a stand, and if luck prevails, they’ll get to keep Earth. However, according to prophecy (or time travel data), it seems that they will NOT win and that would be most unfortunate for humans, because just like in all the modern wars, they will destroy as much of Earth as possible before they hand it over to the new owner(s).

    1. oh, someone asked why 2000 years. From memory, the change of ownership happened every 26,000 years. Apparently, Marduk was given another 2000 years ownership (some loophole he found in their lawbooks)

      1. 260000 years should be a big hint that the word “ownership” means something entirely different.

  4. BTW, I just saw that – in the Postings Area – Members have Comments, but the non-member subsection only have Opinions. (grin)

    Another recent change to the Postings Area is that there are only five, count’em five, Opinions shown. By coincidence, this allows any controversial Comments – excuse me, Opinions – to quickly disappear off of the Postings Area page and be effectively ‘lost’.

    Also, a Comment – excuse me, Opinion – I JUST made on “Those Bankster Hacks” article is not registering in the Postings Area. It was not modded. It appears that only the current day’s Comments – excuse me, Opinions – will be listed. If this is a ‘permanent’ change, this means that older (perhaps controversial) Opinions will be effectively invisible to the readers.

    Dr. Farrell, if you did this, you are playing into the hands of the PTB…

    1. Robert Barricklow

      As the world spins, the PTB’s soap opera; unfortunately, continues to confirm suspicions I’ve had, and hoped would not materialize. Dishearteningly, they ben being dealt out in-spades. For example, I just checked out a DVD from the library of a comedian I never heard of: Daniel Tosh. What a douche bag[I want self censor myself from calling a spade a spade/comment moderation?].
      All kinds of censorship, from the blatant to the hidden to those that self censor themselves – just to get ink[maybe a paycheck].
      And make no mistake; money is the master for far too many. It needs to be a servant, public not private. Public, not some market euphemism for privatization.
      Hopefully, this is much ado about nothing; rather than the tell-tale sign of a Shakespearian tragedy in the making.
      Paranoid?
      Of course, I am.
      9/11 was just their opening act; many more scenes are to be played-out before the curtain drops.

        1. RB, my Opinion from above concerned being able to see – in the Postings Area – the reader postings from PRIOR-DAY articles. In the referenced instance, my Opinion (to ZDB) originated from the “Those Bankster Hacks” article on June 6th. It never appeared in the Postings Area, despite not being modded or disappeared.

          RB (and all), you could help me with a ‘systems test’: Go to the referenced article and post something. Let’s see if it shows up in the reader Postings Area…

    2. g-hawks
      i have no idea what the members comments and opinions thing is about. are we talking paying members vs free? come to think of it what is the postings area? and where do you get the time to keep up with all of this?

      1. ZDB, what I am calling the Postings Area is the space just below Dr. Farrell’s most-recent articles (usually three rows) and above ‘Recently: In The Members’ Area’. It has ‘Recent Opinions’ on the left side and ‘Member Area Comments’ on the right side.

        The Postings Area used to have 10-12 comments per side, and show any comment – even if concerning a long-ago article.

        Now, the Postings Area has a limit of 5 comments per side, and will only show a comment on Today’s articles. A big change…

        I will post this comment (Opinion), and see if it shows up in the Postings Area. I will post whether it did, below this.

        ZDB, I did not see your Opinion show up in the Postings Area, but that could have been because it got moved off the page – now that only 5 comments are shown.

        (ZDB, I tried to get decent work for four years, but could not. Too educated and too old. So, I ‘retired’ and now have abundant time on my hands…)

      2. Nope, the comment did not show. So, any comment other than those for Today’s articles is ‘locked out’…

  5. As Paolo notes below, science fiction has driven home this idea for years. Poor Buenos Aires… Also, the idea is driven as well via Dr. Rosin with the reported sayings of von Braun albeit with an explanation I find it a bit too easy to believe.

    It seems we are left with the idea of a need for planetary defensive weaponry against someone or some thing slinging asteroids in our direction. I have noted before the reports from Siberia of unaccounted for beam weapons erupting to blast incoming meteors to the shock and surprise of Soviet officials but which were completely expected by the local population that had stories of the ancients protecting them from interstellar harm. Each time Medvedev has spoken I have imagined the Russians figuring out whatever had been left and functional in Siberia.

    I remain painfully curious, however, regarding this move to weaponisation. The recent meteor over Arizona made me think of the events surrounding the Phoenix lights and what Dr. Farrell suggested may have been a demonstration and counter-demonstration.

    1. Perhaps that someone is the Creator. An asteroid of the right size hitting the right spot could instantly wipeout all their power and wealth. I’ve bee thinking lately that this is mankind’s only real hope to escape their control and the damage they have caused to the DNA and minds of the human race by their centuries of domestication and dumbing down.

  6. More drip drip of information on what might be going on above our heads. As Stephen Bassett says, “its not about the lights in the sky, its about the lies on the ground. So is it about large chunks of rocks hitting the Earth, or some kind of offensive against a “threat”, a real threat. If our space cousins are planning on coming back, then the whole world needs to know NOW !!!!

  7. “defense against objects of natural origin”…. Humans also have a natural origin.

  8. marcos toledo

    Just wondering where our oligarchs are hiding their real life DEATHSTAR. To be used against the Earth-Moon system if their strangle hold over us finally falls. They are that infantile if they can’t rule the World they will destroy it in a murder-suicide action welcome to the NEW WORLD ORDER.

  9. Defense against asteroids is now fully in the public sphere, therefore we can be assured that they are working on the next step of Von Braun’s prediction, defense against aliens, which brings to mind Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley’s comments about fighting against little green men.

  10. IMHO, the NE Navy was the shipper of the 2013 Chelyabinsk meteor. HAARP, CERN and the NE Navy can deliver Hand of gOD destruction. $4.4T MIA at DOD buys a lot of toys. If there are a lot of Earth Changes, etc.. I expect the BRICSA 105 nation alliance to bear the brunt of the destruction. YAAC.

  11. In the meantime, “NATO” is playing with toy soldiers and not-so-toy tactical nukes in the Baltic area. But the real frontline is most probably elsewhere.

  12. “thrown, so to speak”—–Oh good lord!

    This has been the stuff of science fiction for decades. In Babylon 5, it was the Centauri Republic (interesting that the ‘Republic’ had an Emperor) that used Mass Driver weapons to devastate the planet of Narn. Also, in the movie ‘The Last Starfighter’, Mass Driver weapons were used against a planet. Again, in Starship Trooper, an asteroid thrown by a hostile alien race is used to destroy an Earth city.

    Plus, we had a similar, but no audible explosion, streak of light above the Northeast US just a few weeks ago.

    1) As weapons go, asteroids hold a huge potential for destruction, but Earth’s atmosphere is a tough nut to crack.

    2) Defense against ‘Asteroids’, in the words of that kind Dok-toor Von Braun, would be a convenient excuse to militarize space…for our protection, of course.
