CISLUNAR HIGHWAY PATROL SYSTEM AND LUNAR INFRASTRUCTURE
Space is back in the news again, but very quietly unless one disregards ROSCOSMOS' Dmitri Rogozin's comment on the recent Russian ban on the sale of its rocket engines to the USSA, "Let them ride their brooms into space." Nevertheless, many people spotted today's story about the CHPS or Cislunar Highway Patrol System, and our friend Catherine Fitts spotted the one about NASA funding for lunar infrastructure research. My question is: why now, in the midst of the situation in the Ukraine?
We'll get back to that. But for now, note the first story on the "Cislunar Highway Patrol System" and its implication:
Note how the following:
The Cislunar Highway Patrol System is a spacecraft conceived at the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate that is designed to improve the United States Space Force’s ability to detect track and identify artificial objects operating at lunar distances and beyond, a range of 385,000 km. Most Space Force sensors are designed to detect and track satellites that are in Geo synchronous orbit (~36,000 km) distances or closer.
CHPS will search for unknown objects like mission related debris, rocket bodies, and other previously untracked cislunar objects, as well as provide position updates on spacecraft currently operating near the Moon or other cislunar regions that are challenging to observe from Earth.
The CHPS spacecraft will launch in 2025 out to an area of gravitational stability between the Earth and the Moon to test out techniques to monitor space traffic that travels through that area.
In the next decade alone, the amount of traffic to the Moon as well as the lunar surface, is expected to increase significantly. (Boldface emphasis added)
Now stop and ponder the implications, the first of which is that the USSA is implying an extension of its "global police power" into space and all the way to the Moon. One wonders just how we're going to police the space between the Earth and the Moon, when we can't even keep Russia out of the Ukraine, or Prime Minister Modi from buying Russian defense equipment, but I digress...
What intrigues me here are the subtle implications that this description of the "Cislunar Highway Patrol System" leaves entirely open the possibility that it is designed to look for "spacecraft currently operating near the Moon" and that it will search for "unknown objects".
Put both of those together and what I suspect you end up with is a backhanded admission that part of the purpose and mission brief of this system is to look for and monitor any cislunar UFO activity.
Additionally, we're told that it will be doing this from that region near the neutral point of gravitational attraction between the Earth and the Moon (and notice, they conveniently left out how far from the Earth and the Moon, respectively, that is). That little bit of information piqued my curiosity and revved my high-octane speculation motor into overdrive, because to maintain a satellite in such a position will also imply the ability to monitor any fluctuations in that region, and hence, any fluctuations over time in the gravitational field of either planet. Let that one sink in for a moment.
Then, Catherin Fitts spotted the following article and sent it along:
Now there's something that caught my eye in the second article, and it has to do with the "why now?" question I posed at the beginning of this blog, and brings us directly to today's high octane speculation. As I indicated in my previous two blogs this week, the Ukrainian situation promises or heralds massive changes in the geopolitical and financial order. Many financial pundits are predicting the emergence of a gold-based trading system and, to that extent, the unravelling of the central banking warfare-welfare monetized fiat debt-as-money system. As I indicated earlier this week, it appears that Mr Globaloney has decided to fight for his system in the Ukraine, and to the last drop of Ukrainian blood, just as a century ago his minions in the British oligarchy decided to defeat Germany and fight to the last drop of French and Russian blood.
To that end, Mr. Globaloney needs - and has been advocating - a cashless system, one giving him ultimate and absolute control, and to that end, has been quietly eyeing space not only for its resources but as the ultimate base of operations for that system. There's a problem, though: that system depends on your ability to defend the satellites that make it possible, and in a space race that the USA is losing, publicly at least, that looks increasingly dodgy.
Except for one thing... the Moon, which is impossible (at least presently) to shoot down or destroy...
And that brings us to the last section of the second article, the section about "Extreme Electronics":
One of the biggest obstacles to space exploration is extreme temperatures that can render various types of technology useless.
Without an atmosphere, NASA researchers say, lunar night temperatures often plummet to hundreds of degrees Fahrenheit below zero. What's more, the lunar terrain includes permanently shadowed regions never touched by sunlight.
Researchers at Auburn University, led by principal investigator Michael Hamilton, will design electronics to be reliable in extreme conditions such as these. The team is already exploring possibilities for how those electronics will work in the years ahead, according to an email from a university spokesman.
“The surface of the moon can reach -415 degrees in specific locations. This is not the best environment for some electronic devices. To keep them warm, one approach is the utilization of heaters, but size and expense create difficulties,” a university spokesman told Government Technology. “To find an alternative to this problem, the proposal is to develop electric devices/components that have the capability of functioning over a wide temperature range, and not rely on warming devices, for future lunar missions.”
Not to mention the very high temperatures that can occur during the lunar day. Your plans for "archives" on the Moon, for lunar bases and human habitation, and yes, financial clearing, could all go up in smoke if the electronics problem isn't mastered, and now, you're in a race against time against those nations that are looking at bullion once again...
... and, we might as well say it: you've got a big problem if ET likes it as a basis of trade too...
... See you on the flip side...
