...wait... whoa... just a minute... stop the presses...

...What!? (Face palm).  You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding...

...ok... I'm calmer now.

For those of you who remember Tom Lehrer, the musical-political satirist of the 1960s and 1970s, you have to wonder what he would have made of this one. After all, he gave us such memorable songs, like the periodic table of the elements sung to a tune of Gilbert and Sullivan, or "Who's Next?", a musical-comedy look at nuclear proliferation in the 1970s. And who can forget these memorable lines from "The MLF Lullaby":

"Sleep well, my baby, in sleep may you slumber,

no danger lurks your sleep to encumber,

we've got the missiles peace to determine,

and one of the fingers on the button will be German."

Well, my first thought when I read this submission by P.A.I. (many thanks) was "What would Tom Lehrer have done with this?"

Planetary defense: ESA awards €129 million contract to German satellite maker for ‘Hera’ ANTI-ASTEROID system

Now the headline is much more sensational than the content of the article (this is, after all, RT). What's described in the article is actually a description of a test bed for tracking asteroids:

Hera, named after the Greek goddess of marriage and family, is Europe’s addition to international asteroid defense systems. The contract covers Hera’s design, integration and testing — and OHB will take the helm of a team of companies from 17 ESA member states all aiming for an October 2024 launch.

If all goes to plan, Hera will take up orbit around the remains of the so-called double or ‘binary’ asteroid system of Didymos and Dimorphos, using autonomous navigation systems not too dissimilar from those found in driverless cars here on Earth. The system comprises about 15 percent of all known asteroids.

Dimorphos, the smaller of the two asteroids, measuring about the same size as the Great Pyramid at Giza, will be the target of NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART, mission scheduled to launch in July 2021.

DART is aiming to smash into Dimorphos in September 2022 in an attempt to deflect it off course as a test run of our planetary defenses.

If all goes well, DART is expected to change Dimorphos’ orbiting speed by about 0.5mms per second and lengthen its orbit by around 200 seconds, but we won’t be able to confirm the success, or failure, of the mission until Hera arrives on scene in late 2026 to conduct a six-month study.

See? Nothing to worry about here... all the Dual Monar... er... The Franco-Germanic Empi... uhm... The European Union are really doing is simply sending up a system to m0nitor how successful NASA's attempt to nudge an asteroid is. (Here's a link to NASA's description of the DART mission, and, gee, that larger asteroid looks... well... symmetrical... no wonder they call it Dimorphos:

Nothing to see here. Move along. After all, we were told by Dmitri Medvedev a month before the Chelyabinsk meteor incident that Russia wanted international cooperation to build out  a planetary asteroid defense system, and that we earthlings could nudge those asteroids aside with thermonuclear-warhead-tipped missiles. And oh look, Europe is interested in helping us Americans by sending up their own satellite to see how successful we were. That's pretty darned nice of them, don't you think?

I don't know about you, but I'm sensing there is something wrong with the whole narrative. I suspect rather that the purpose of these missions might be to find out more about Dimorphos, and just exactly how much they can affect and "steer" that kind of binary asteroid system... provided it is a binary asteroid system.

And even if  I'm entirely wrong in that high octane speculation, there's another nasty implication of the article here. If one can steer such asteroids or double asteroid systems by kinetic impact - and of course, one can steer things by mere kinetic impact, just think of billiards - then one can not only steer them to avoid planetary collisions, but to create them. Indeed, NASA's mission and Europe's response seems rather to determine just how minutely and precisely they can do so and that would imply a potential military application, one recalling the Varo edition of Morris Jessup's The Case for the UFO, and Carlos Allende's alleged markings in the Jessup book referring to a great interplanetary war using asteroids for a "great bombardment". Nor is the implication here purely military. There's a commercial aspect to this: why bother going out there and trying to snag an asteroid that you want to mine with a big chemical rocket, when you could just "nudge it" into dry dock, so to speak. "Asteroid, side pocket..."

So, my bottom line here is, I suspect the DART Mission, and Europe's response, is about reconnaissance, and a proof-of-concept test both for defensive and offensive military purposes, and for commercial purposes.

And there's a final implication of the article:

Germany is squarely in the center of the effort.

See you on the flip side...

    Marcos, I thought you would like this:
    “The Lofoten Islands, a low-lying archipelago off the coast of Norway, well above the Arctic Circle, were once the center of a major Viking chiefdom (a term for both a style of government and an individual government), based in the village at Borg, and a jumping-off point for Viking settlement of Iceland.”

    So, you could say The Borg assimilated Iceland. (Arrgghh…)

    If Russia really was smart they would build several very large bases in that region. Not neccessarily for deffence but to attract more civilian infrastructure to the region to cater to the needs of off duty military personel. From which communities others could come in and set up infrastructure to harvest the region’s resources. Then more businesses and their families could come in to support that population. Before you know it they would have major towns and cities in the region to counter China stealing their resources.

    • Roger on September 19, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    • FiatLux on September 19, 2020 at 7:23 pm

      Roger – I think you’re right. My guess is a lack of infrastructure in the region plus a declining population in the country overall are two of the reasons they haven’t done something like that already.

    • Arpit Kanodia on September 20, 2020 at 11:17 am

      Definitely, civilian incentives are always welcomed in developing military or developing military industrial complex.

      There are several towns & cities in US that are urbanized because of military industrial complex.

      As much as I like your idead, by default economies of east are socialist, mindset is socialist, family values are socialist.
      but such things wont happen unless govt is with capitalist mindset. And even after fall of USSR, Russia by default is socialist, some might be oligarchy, but for most people, businessmen Russia is a socialist country.

  6. OrigensChild on September 19, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    I had to think about this one for a bit. It is an important find and so many insightful comments have been made. Yet, I cannot help but think there have been several occulted attempts at this to determine proof of concept and were successful. Both are now being rolled out in what appears to be a public announcement of a method or protocol. I’m looking at DART and Hera as a dyadic metaphor for the announcement of the creation of planetary defense system built on two principles of dual use technologies–both with creative and destructive capabilities individually. But when I look at the full identification of the problem in just its primary details, you have two asteroids, a missile and a monitor named after the Greek goddess of family–and these details alone are breathtaking. Only a sick mind would use such thinly veiled sexual imagery to announce an occult project by analogy–but this is precisely what someone well versed in NAZI ideology and world-view would do. There is a depraved sense of humor at work here. We’ve seen this before. Last time it was used we had two towers collapse in Manhattan on a Tuesday in September, 2001. If that was a false flag, is this hinting at one? SPMOTU are the masters of chaos theory, where creative destruction is the way to build something new from the building blocks of debris. How often have we read announcements like this in advance–only to realize later that such proclamations might be better construed as dire warnings? I cannot help but go back to Carol Rosen’s description of Werner von Braun’s hidden warnings. There’s a message here–but the message is not intended for us.

  7. OrigensChild on September 19, 2020 at 1:49 pm

    I’m surprised they named the system Double Asteroid Redirection Test, or DART. In my mind, the name should have been Foreign Asteroid Redirection Test, but the initials on that one would be so obvious.

      FiatLux, I’d suspect a compliance test too except after talking with a normie earlier about whether or not they’d take a vaccine, they replied “absolutely not.” They want to be the last person on the planet to take it. I replied that everyone I know has stated the same, yet everyone I know said the same about masks, and working from home, and shutting down schools, and losing their jobs. His reply: “yeh that’s the thing it’s all so incremental.”

      Like the verses go:

    Ever since the military-backed Clementine mission to the Moon, there have been ‘dual use’ missions to prove-out systems useful in wartime situations. The most obvious ‘dual use’ NASA missions were the Deep Impact space probe in 2005 and the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) in 2006, amongst others. We are promised that these are just peaceful missions; go back to sleep…

    I am more concerned about the application of these technologies to the asteroid 99942 Apophis. I wrote about that here:

    If one were wanting to prove-out systems for deflecting Apophis for a 2029 impact (or even to un-deflect it, if “Someone” has nudged it already), this would be the time. Space War? Nah. Go back to sleep…

    She has the distinct impression that Bill Gates and A Fauci are good guys with our best interest at heart. And that they are not in bed with and that they are monsters. She thinks Trump is the only monster and once we’re past Trump, everything gets better. Nevermind that every paradigm put forward by all of these proven most powerful criminals has been the opposite of good ideas and achieved the opposite results of what was promised.

      What the Hell is going on in Australia? These scenes put Third World dictatorships to shame.

      Some claim that this is the influence of China, which is buying up Australian land, infrastructure and businesses in that country.

      China owns an airport in Western Australia, nine million hectares of Australian land, several Aussie coal mines and wind farms and even the Port of Darwin, a key strategic asset.
      China is also the largest foreign owner of Australian water…

      Does any of this have to do with the imminent financial reset?

    “Hera” is a very interesting name for this thing. Rather than simply the Greek goddess of marriage and family, I would point to phonetic and conceptual similarities across cultures with the combination “h-r-(k)” and noting the “Conquering Hero” motif. The phonetics of the word “hero” itself are consistent.

    Starting with, of course Heracles (“glory of Hera”), we go south to Egypt and find “Heru” (Horus), particularly Heru-ka, or the “spiritual body of Horus,” and also Hery-shaf, whom the Greeks conflated with Heracles.

    In Akkad, Babylon and onwards, we get the “hairu” organizations. From the Akkadian word for “husband,” the hairu organizations were originally a subgroup if left-flank military archers who became scribes. They were later deputized to run parts of the empire, like little mafias, and likely ran on the model we ascribe to later Mithraic military-religious orders, like the Hashashins.

    On the eastern side, we have the tantric deity/yidam Sri Heruka, the “glorious blood drinker,” of Indian and later Tibetan Buddhism.

    The upshot here is that if you have pretensions to technological apotheosis, you name your asteroid defense after the conquering hero word of ancient world. Especially since that hero is a reference to apotheosis-type yogic process.

  20. Robert Barricklow on September 18, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    My initial gut reaction is asteroid defense system =
    asteroid offense system.
    If all goes well, the weaponization of the asteroid belt will have become a proof of concept.
    Mankind has moved up the technology chain; from playing w/fire to asteroid in the Indian Ocean, killing many sad birds w/one large treasure stone.

    Why just think of the future false flags potential?
    So many black op treasures are hidden in these technologies.
    And, by the way, when did this asteroid “technology” become operational.
    No doubt, the Gods have some thoughts on that?
    By example?

    While the media are shrieking about “cases” and “outbreaks”, the self-proclaimed lords of the world are aspiring to a place in the solar system. As for the tidbit article on the OBH contract amounting to E129 million, they’re wasting much more than that on the mask/swab/tracking psy-op.
    But going off the deep end, what if focused intention could shift orbiting rocks or whatever? Or even shift power holders from their oh-so-secure positions?

    • FiatLux on September 18, 2020 at 5:14 pm

      Enough focused attention could probably do wonders. I hope we get at least enough to deflect some of those power holders off their thrones!
