This website, in case you didn't know, has a Community forum where people also post conversational items, articles, or just carry on a conversation with whoever else is there.  Well, I saw this strange article there posted by Mr. T.H., who shared it with the forum, and I want to post it here and talk about it in my high octane speculation of the day.  Here's the article:

Russian Satellite Could Become The "Brightest Star" In Our Night Sky

Now, as one can imagine, here's the part that caught my eye:

The small spacecraft, roughly the size of a loaf of bread, will unfurl a giant pyramid-shaped solar reflector in orbit, with the aim of shining brighter than any other star. The reflector, 16 square meters (170 square feet) in size, is supposedly 20 times thinner than human hair, made of a thin polymer film. This spacecraft doesn't have any other scientific purpose, although the team notes that a similar structure could be used to remove defunct satellites from orbit.

"We want to show that space exploration is something exciting and interesting, but most importantly that today it is accessible to everybody who is interested," project leader Alexander Shaenko said, reported Sputnik News.

The team is planning to place the spacecraft in a Sun-synchronous orbit 600 kilometers (370 miles) above the ground. This means it will always be in sunlight, and thus will always be shining in the night sky at different locations as Earth rotates. At this height, the spacecraft will also be able to avoid large effects from atmospheric drag, so it could feasibly orbit for weeks, months, or even years.

Of course, the word "pyramid" immediately captured my interest, and I have all sorts of "high octane fantasias" running through my head, but let's talk about that reflective coating; the satellite, we're told, will be about the size of a small loaf of bread, which will then unfurl "a giant pyramid-shaped solar reflector" in orbit.  Other than this, we're not told much about the proposed function of the satellite other than to "look bright" and, by implication, "be fun and interesting to do."

Uh huh...

Now, I don't know about you, but I for one have some difficulty believing that the Russians would launch a big pyramid-shaped satellite just for kicks and giggles and to provide a nice "Nightlight in the sky." Perhaps this is the latest component of their highly successful World Election Hacking System. Perhaps it's some component of an illumination system designed for other purposes, such as blinding the optics of other satellites (ours for example), or some sort of "searchlight" for small but potentially dangerous near Earth objects. After all, Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev, you'll recall, back before the Chelyabinsk meteor incident, called for an international asteroid detection and defense system, but if others did not want to join, then Russia would just have to "do it all itself."

Curiously, Mr. Medvedev, you'll also recall, also stated that Russia could destroy dangerous asteroids busting them up with missiles carrying large hydrogen bombs (ala the Bruce Willis movie Armageddon).  Then, however, he went on to say something in a kind of "oh, hydrogen-bombs-are-so-yesterday" moment, namely, that there were "other means" of busting large rocks in space.

And that of course opened up all sorts of doors for high octane speculation, which I'm sure the remarks were designed to do, and I gladly walked through them then, and do so again now, for I propose to connect Mr. Medvedev's remarks from those years ago, to this strange story today, and concentrate, not on the reflection properties, but the pyramid shape.

Many people do not know that during the 1960s-1970s and even into the 1980s, the Soviet Union conducted a number of very secret projects in what we would loosely and generally call the "paranormal". One of these very top secret projects was the "pyramid power project." Yes, that's right; the Russians had a top secret project, lasting many years, exploring the alleged strange powers of pyramids for good and ill. To this end, they constructed a number of tall, slim fiberglass pyramids all over Russia. Some are still standing outside of Moscow today, and are a kind of tourist-curiosity destination. To my knowledge, this is the only known official state project investigating pyramid power; I know of no similar such project in any other major power, ever.  (Indeed, I first learned of the project before it became more openly known, from a Russian Orthodox priest that was then a friend of mine.)

As I outlined in The Giza Death Star Destroyed, some of these projects were very revealing, and their scope - I am convinced - is not fully known to this day. But one of the significant things that came from this research was the finding, discussed in some papers by the Ukrainian physicist Volodymyr Krasnoholovets, that for some reason the pyramid shape seems to influence the vacuum energy directly. They found - or at least, claimed to have found - that the pyramid geometry was engineering the fabric of the physical medium locally. Strange energy upwellings appeared over the apexes of their pyramids. They discovered, also, that tall "thin" pyramids acted more as antennae for these strange energies, while flatter pyramids acted as collectors of it. Strangely enough, they also found that the height-to-width ratio of the Great Pyramid fulfilled both functions.

So I have to wonder, of course, if this "pyramid satellite project" is a part of those experiments; it certainly seems to suggest that the Soviet Pyramid Project didn't completely end with the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the disclosure of the existence of the project, and that it may be moving into space. If indeed the alleged discoveries of "medium-manipulating" characteristics of the pyramid shape are true, it stands to reason they would want to study those properties in the low-to-zero gravity context of space itself. The reflective coating would also correlate to other pyramid investigations - those of the American engineer Parr, for example - where the position of the sun, incoming solar energy, and so on, played a major role.

In short, for those who've been paying attention to this strange area of research, there is probably much more going on here than meets the eye.

See you on the flip side...

    Why someone hasn’t called it Lucy and assayed it’s relationship with carbon atoms arranged in a tight geometric matrix, I’ll never know. Thus, I will mention it as a subtle nod to the Beatles and in honor of Russia’s tantalizing public admission of interests in matters esoteric.

    The thin, shiny, reflective material brings to mind the old Echo satellite (now I’m showing my age).

    • goshawks on July 2, 2017 at 8:32 pm

      My father took me out to watch the Echo satellite pass overhead…

    No doubt proof of concept had long ago. This then is not only a symbolic message, but has practical, tactical, and strategic implications when viewed from applicable perspectives.
    Perhaps this is an invitation to orbit flattery;
    to be reflected by many coming bright pyramid imitations.
    Sky-high neighborhoods[250 miles plus]soon to show they’re also not part of the orbiting lone ranger[space hegemony] games.

    There is some ambiguity in ‘shape’ here. The article’s picture shows a 3D pyramidal shape. However, the verbiage says “with the use of a giant reflective sheet of material” and “the reflector, 16 square meters (170 square feet) in size” which could imply a 2D pyramid-shaped ‘panel’. Also, “the goal of making it the brightest star in our skies” would more-imply a 2D-stabilized object, as a 3D-unstabilized object would vary in brightness with any rotation, or all changes in sun-panel-observer angles. A variable rather than a constant ‘star’…

    I am more inclined to see this object (or its bigger brothers to come) as a ‘blinding’ weapon. Very-sensitive sensors on spy satellites in higher orbits could be ‘dazzled’ or even degraded. Oops, sorry…

    Also, with an orbit 600 kilometers (370 miles) up, the satellite is not going to last “weeks, months, or even years” That is an orbit roughly 50% higher than the ISS. This satellite is going to be in orbit for several decades.

    (A minor quibble: 170 square feet of surface would produce a 2D, roughly-triangular shape of around 15-20 feet on each edge. Much less ‘individual-panel-area’ for a 3D shape. Hardly a ‘giant’ size, although impressive for coming-out from a breadloaf-sized container.)

      C’mon Goshawks, you know that the outer-outer layer of the exosphere stops at 600 km. I’d say that this is to ensure no atmospheric drag.. and if the pyramid is to be weaponised.. which I think it will… (cant look at a pyramid now without seeing a weapon.. thanks doc..) then what laser has a 600 km range…???
      I thought that they had problems with the reverse square law.. unless its the actual pyramid itself that’s … hmm Im going back to read GDS..

      • goshawks on July 4, 2017 at 3:03 pm

        K, I never said that orbit was beyond the atmosphere. I said this satellite is going to be in orbit for several decades. The atmosphere is so thin at 600 kilometers (370 miles) up that individual atoms no longer even contact each other. That altitude is roughly where the Hubble Space Telescope orbits…

      • goshawks on July 4, 2017 at 3:05 pm

        (Modded. Probably for “alt1tude”. Let’s see…)

    I still haven’t figured out if Russia is the shining beacon for the anti-Illuminists, hearing recently that ‘Putin’ had nationalised the central bank and released Russia from the Vipers.. if that is the case then perhaps it is just that Goys just wanna have fun. all we need is this shining star, three wise men and an infant messiah. .

    • Cate on July 2, 2017 at 5:37 pm

      This goyl would rather be stuck in small room in Russia with Putin over “Israel” with Netty any day of my life.

  6. DownunderET on July 1, 2017 at 7:06 pm

    Can one pyramid talk to another one ????
    If they can communicate then………….?????

  7. basta on July 1, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    A pyramid in the sky will be the brightest star — not much symbolism there, huh?

    But I assume this has some unspoken defense component to it, like a proof of concept of small, cheap satellite-hunters which are so small they can pass as space junk, and which can be sent into orbit and dispersed unfurled, then when needed activated and sailed using the solar wind to blind or disable an enemy satellite.

    Or maybe the Russian military just likes to make neat stuff.

  8. marcos toledo on July 1, 2017 at 11:07 am

    Does this have anything to do with harnessing zero point energy. As well as clearing near space of space junk?

  9. Phil the Thrill on July 1, 2017 at 9:44 am

    I love this guy. Some people think he is the Kook Template itself; but anyone who invents a bomb detector at the age of 15, only to have it appropriated by the gubmint, must be an interesting person, at least.

  10. WalkingDead on July 1, 2017 at 7:48 am

    This might also explain those triangular shaped craft that have been observed, which, of course, don’t exist.

  11. DanaThomas on July 1, 2017 at 5:34 am

    Well I’ll bet this pyramid is NOT for sharpening razor blades or growing nice flowers

    • Freefall on July 1, 2017 at 8:19 am

      LOL .. I think you may be onto something there, Dana !!

      • Phil the Thrill on July 1, 2017 at 11:20 am

        Keep in mind, pyramid power proponents argue that the pyramids keep your sharp blades from dulling, not that they sharpen dull blades. Crucial distinction, wot?
