Now this odd story - very odd, in my opinion - was sent by F.L.M., and I have to admit, that when I read it, initially I was rather cool to it. It seemed straightforward enough:

Fiery demise of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites captured on video after space storm knocks them out of orbit

Elon Musk’s SpaceX loses 40 satellites to geomagnetic storm

And just to drill that "straightforward" aspect home a bit more, there's this from the article (the second link above):

A geomagnetic storm had disastrous consequences for SpaceX’s latest effort to launch “Starlink” satellites into orbit.

Elon Musk’s firm said it expects as many as 40 of the 49 brand-new Starlink satellites deployed in a launch last Thursday were destroyed. The cosmic storm struck just one day after a Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched the costly satellites into orbit.

“These storms cause the atmosphere to warm and atmospheric density at our low deployment altitudes to increase,” SpaceX officials said in an update posted on the firm’s website. “In fact, onboard GPS suggests the escalation speed and severity of the storm caused atmospheric drag to increase up to 50 percent higher than during previous launches.”


SpaceX said the satellites “pose zero collision risk with other satellites and by design demise upon atmospheric reentry—meaning no orbital debris is created and no satellite parts hit the ground.”


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Space Weather Prediction Center had warned that geomagnetic storm conditions were “likely” on Feb. 2 and 3 following a solar flare. SpaceX’s update did not reference the warning.

Now, I'll grant you, that most of me remains willing to take this story at all of its geomagnetic-there-was-a-solar-flare-that-altered-upper-atmospheric-drag-conditions-causing-the-launch-to-fail-and-the-satellite-orbits-to-change-and-they-all-burned-up-in-the-atmosphere self-explanatory glory.

But I'll also admit there's a small part of me that isn't entirely buying, and that some of this "explanation" seems... well... contrived. Problem one (1): apparently this geomagnetic storm, or solar flare, or whatever it was, was so localized it affected only Mr. Musk's satellites. So far, I've not heard any reports of anyone else's satellites being effected.  Problem two (2): this implies that the geomagnetic storm, or solar flare, or whatever it was, was rather targeted. We'll get back to that.

Problem three (3): apparently the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration had issued a warning about the possibility of geomagnetic storms. Now this implies three "sub-problems": (3a) either SpaceX didn't know about the warning at all, or (3b) it did know but simply ignored it or (3c) is did know, but determined that there was not much of a threat from the storm/solar flare and went ahead with the launch anyway.

Now (3c) is intriguing, because as noted above, no one else's satellites - as far as we know - were effected in any drastic way, just Mr. Musk's. That suggests an intriguing scenario to me, for it suggests that the "geomagnetic storm" wasn't sufficient in and of itself to cause the demise of the satellites and the failure of the launch. It suggests another mechanism was present, perhaps a mechanism adding localized strength to the geomagnetic storm, and hence, hiding behind it. What might it be? I suggest - if this wild and woolly high octane speculation is to make any sense at all - that the clue is found in the article itself: “These storms cause the atmosphere to warm and atmospheric density at our low deployment altitudes to increase,” SpaceX officials said in an update posted on the firm’s website. “In fact, onboard GPS suggests the escalation speed and severity of the storm caused atmospheric drag to increase up to 50 percent higher than during previous launches.” There is of course a human technology that is designed to manipulate upper atmospheric density, and that is of course the ionospheric heater.  Indeed, I suspect that they are capable of manipulating solar flares themselves through the manipulation of those atmospheric effects, but that's another speculation for another day.

Now of course, the implication of this speculation is clear: someone does not want Mr. Musk to succeed, and that someone has access to some sophisticated technology and is willing to use it.  And that could be just about anyone, from another private competitor, to a nation-state or non-state actor with much invested in space...

See you on the flip side...

    In my opinion, we have been lied to since each of us came into this world…..who would know what True Reality IS?! We all know what happened to James Forrestal for believing that We The People have a right to know The Truth!

    It also seems that Richard Byrd went to the grave with a “secret” he had promised not to reveal. Since we do not have access to all the details & complete info on ANYTHING how can we try to figure out what is really going on?!

    Each child grows up thinking what he or she was taught is how things are….unless something happens to burst that bubble, the Belief in that System, whatever it is, continues to the grave. It’s fun trying to fit what pieces we do have, together, though!! 😉

    Seems like HAARP at work ,or The Usual Suspects (who have on numerous occasions disarmed nukes at various sites).But why single out Musk’s? could it be a warning? Je ne sais pas.

  3. Laura on February 17, 2022 at 2:11 pm

    1. Maybe those satellites were well insured.
    2. Maybe a test went wrong. Or maybe the test went very well.
    3. Should private ownership of space assets include the capability of active defense, or is that reserved to government?

    Sun Tzu said: Supreme excellence of generalship lies in never putting and army in the field. (To get what you want without the expense and risk of war)

    In the beginning segment of the TwentyFirst Century we see a new and improved version of this aphorism: Supreme excellence of generalship lies in defeating the enemy without them ever understanding that they’re at war.

    Sun Tzu said that spies are very important and are of vital concern to the state.
    In the early Twenty First Century we see a new and improved version of this Aphorism: Everyone needs to be a spy (Agent of State Social Change). Flood the enemy with Infiltrators (Agents of Social Change) and buy off all the bureaucrats, politicians, media, education, sports, even the military and the industrialists. In this way the state can control all segments of society and need not fear the enemy military as they, as an expression of the enemy military, no longer exist.

    Sun Tzu said ,“Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.” Every American I encounter these days are convinced that there is a knife at our throat or an asteroid about to hit us, or something else that’s even worse. Some of them wear masks, some don’t, all races and ages and religions. All people see is an ocean of chaos about it envelope them.

    “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.” – Sun Tzu.
    “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. Rahm Emanuel

    This is a hot war and Musk just got whacked with is satellites being blown away. Who did it? Deep State? Financial Cabal? China? USA? Aliens? Breakaways? CIA? What consequences fro from the loss of these satellites? Maybe the saying should be supreme excellence of generalship lies in bamboozling the enemy so completely they can never figure out who hit them! This article bugs me a lot. Who’s minding the store?

    21century wars of the East India Companies anyone space pirates-mercenaries as usual the good old science fiction writers have had a firmer hand on the future.

  6. Richard on February 16, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    . . . It’s a significant loss for Musk but then he can probably afford it. What’s not getting a lot of air time for effect are other high altitude reconnaissance assets getting moved around – the type Mr Snowden might have once hinted at as potential signal gatherers. Global reconnaissance is very busy moving assets around – left-right – forwards-backwards – and, especially, temporarily downwards from upwards. Government agencies aren’t the only ones having fun watching skywards for stuff or monitoring frequencies.

    Something similar happened to ‘Skylab’ in its day. The global atmosphere heated and expanded causing a low orbital friction that consequently affected Skylab bringing it down in 1979. There continues to be particular attention directed towards watching what’s going on with the International Space Station (ISS) for similar reasons with better planning than what had been done in the seventies. Besides the Solar storm effects, hopefully, those folks up there now will be OK. All the other space junk up there is another matter.

    Suspicious Observers has been saying for a while that the Earth’s magnetic field is weakening at an accelerating rate, far ahead of predictions. For me, the scariest scenario is that the article is true, and the solar flare had a greater effect on the upper atmosphere than expected due to the weakening magnetic field.

    • Richard on February 16, 2022 at 7:53 pm

      . . . More of these things are likely with a level of unknowns not experienced before. A weakening magnetosphere might have happened before but not monitored as now. At least, those records seem to be missing or not interpreted properly from Ancient records in a different format than what is used currently for relating, storing, and passing along information for later review.

  8. Robert Barricklow on February 16, 2022 at 12:24 pm

    The way to get rid of satellites in the public eye is to simply write them out of the script; say a geo storm? Yea, that’s the ticket.
    Or, someone took them out? China? Nazi International?
    Or, a private company[ies] compet1tor[s]?
    Or, something else way-out there?

    My money is on some kind of compet1tor; looking for a monopoly of access.
    Doesn’t want to gift the “space” to their rival, by virtue Musk of being there first. Some player[s] are already using ionic space heaters and other technologies to control Earth’s weather and fires and earthquakes, and God know whatever other forms of disaster capitalism are being practiced?

    There is a rumour that this event is somehow related to the Italian (Deep) State-owned defence conglomerate Leonardo S.p.A. (formerly called Finmeccanica). See linked article. Not stated in the article is the further rumour that some sort of “death ray” of whatever type originated in Northern Italy (where the Empire has an important base). As if the various factions slugging it out here over “vaccine passports” and cut-throat financial pillaging didn’t already have enough on their plate.

    • Nidster - on February 16, 2022 at 7:50 pm

      Very interesting material. Question – could it be +a HARP-like event that is being referenced? Some folks believe Hurricane Sandy was ‘steered’ using HARP. My suspicion meter ‘went off’ after viewing the nearly right angle turn it made into the eastern coastline. I may still have some of those images saved on a hard disk somewhere.

      • Joseph P. Farrell on February 17, 2022 at 4:23 pm

        IT’s HAARP, not HARP, just FYI.

    • Loxie Lou Davie on February 17, 2022 at 5:28 pm

      Thanks, for the link, Dana!! As I have been thinking for while now…..we ARE in the middle of Somebody Else’s War!!

      For anyone who is interested, I stumbled upon Vibes of Cosmos… about mind-blowing!! Tesla did say that Earth is a “realm” & that the stars are fixed in the firmament??? Why have we been seeing the same constellations over, who knows, how many thousands of years?!!

  10. Sasha on February 16, 2022 at 11:18 am

    Benjamin Fulford said somewhere that 40 satellites were destroyed by Khazarian Mafia’s weapon, located somewhere in Vatican or Geneva, with the goal to remove the competitor in space telecommunication.

    • Barbara on February 16, 2022 at 2:45 pm

      Are we seeing contemporary reveal in ancient long war between Genua/Templars fraction and Babylon/Venice/ C of L/ Wall Street on the other side of the deep states?? What gang E. Musk represents?

  11. Joseph Aiello on February 16, 2022 at 9:45 am

    If this was natural, I wonder how often it happens.
    I can’t believe they would put these satellites up with something like this to happen every once in awhile.

  12. Maison on February 16, 2022 at 9:26 am

    Is it too much of a stretch to think of this as some sort of retaliation for Musk’s expressed support of the trucker convoy in Canada?

  13. anakephalaiosis on February 16, 2022 at 8:13 am

    Assuming, that outcome of a political election can be altered, by an algorithm, in an orbital relay station, then the free market becomes a threat, to such a sinister scheme.

    A rogue satellite link, that is capable of bypassing the papal brainwash, becomes an enfant terrible, that threatens the freemasonic umbrella of controlled communication.

    In that sense, space has become the last frontier, for the Vatican, to control a narrative, that is increasingly falling apart. Six million has become a standing joke:

    When royal pretenders abandon their neutral corners, and become political activists, they fall flat on their face, into the mud:

  14. InfiniteRUs on February 16, 2022 at 7:40 am

    I hope it was indeed natural and God looking out for free will. It’s easy to see how satellites will be used as a weapon to monitor and who knows what else 24/7. If the tech will be used to control rather than liberate and improve the human condition glad the Sun will take them all out someday.

    • KSW on February 16, 2022 at 8:58 am

      Maybe one of those other actors were divinely inspired. Actually, I don’t care that much who or what it was as long as Musk and others with his goal fail. I’ve always thought that our best chance out of this mess is that the primary evil actors attack one another.
