(080) How Obama sold out the NASA space shuttles, paid the Russians and replaced the shuttles w/ pothead Elon Musk/SpaceX; Boeing; Mars rovers, Curiosity, Perseverance (002) space 001
News media connect the US space program with SpaceX and hide the NASA program. President Obama discontinued the space shuttle program in 2011 and replaced it with less specific, long term goals. Russians have been paid large amounts to launch US astronauts. No visible progress in the US space program was made. President Trump has changed this. An unmanned flight is planned around the moon in 2020, crewed in 2022 and a new moon landing 2024. These are the first steps on the road to a manned Mars landing.

International networks are plotting to destroy the high reputation of the US space program in order to lower the self esteem of the American people.

The US has not sent one one astronaut to space since 2011. Just for the period 2011-2017 US paid the Russians $4 billion to launch 70 US astronauts and is budgeting one more billion until 2020.

The networks attack the strong points of countries in order to try to break their will. The well organized societies of the Nordic countries were destroyed by mass immigration. Some nations are now consumed by internal conflicts, inhabitants labeling each other racists, misogynists, homophobics etc. The sports interested Soviets/Russians are attacked using fake evidence on doping. Individuals who object to this can be exposed to group pressure, be diagnosed as Asperger disease and prescribed the narcotic drug amphetamine. Advocacy groups are created to pressure governments by f.ex exaggerating genetic and biological aspects of mental variations. The European Union suppresses the competitive power of nations, as admitted by German chancellor Merkel. A pseudo crisis is created around the climate in order to be able to pressure politicians for “not doing anything”.

Media constantly highlights Elon Musk. Paid Internet trolls elevated him to a status of genius. In fact he is just an actor and front figure for globalist networks. Musk is the founder of SpaceX, a major contractor of NASA and also also of electric car manufacturer Tesla.

Several examples show how Musk acts in ways making him seem irresponsible and ignorant. This makes the American people doubt what was previously a symbol of American strength and unity – the space program. For example Musk smokes dope and calls another person for paedophile without reason with which he barely gets away in court, see below.

SpaceX is a major contractor of NASA. SpaceX “develops” the space program in a way meant to look busy, but that will not lead to explorarion of space. SpaceX currently focuses on landing orbital boosters. (Pros like Northrop Grumman just burn up their entire ISS delivery vessels at reentry – disposable, like their nuclear missiles. No reuse here.) Landing the orbital booster rockets will not help explore space. SpaceX also makes extensive plans to launch communication satellites (Starlink). The satellites are too many (42.000) to be practically maintained and market is uncertain. Remote locations are already supplied by other, geostationary satellites.

Musk heads Tesla, an Electric Vehicle manufacturer. It produces EVs that are too expensive and complicated for general use. Musk also heads projects to bore tunnels since he believes travelling through tunnels is a rapid form of transport. (The issue is naturally that there can not be tunnels to all places we wish to go. Big cities seem to prefer building elevated thoroughfares.)

Obama was manipulated by the networks into cancelling the space shuttle program. Trump was falsely accused of collusion with the Russians and cleared. It seems the person colluding with the Russians was Obama, canceling the space shuttles and giving the job to the Russians instead, so far costing the US $4-5 billion.

President Barack Obama lauded NASA’s final space shuttle launch Friday (July 8) [2011], saying that the blastoff marks the end of one chapter of human spaceflight, but also the start of a new one.

“Today’s launch may mark the final flight of the Space Shuttle, but it propels us into the next era of our never-ending adventure to push the very frontiers of exploration and discovery in space,” Obama said in a statement.

NASA is retiring its space shuttle fleet to make way for a new exploration program aimed at deep space missions. Thousands of NASA and shuttle contractor workers are expected to lose their jobs once the program is no more.

Previously, the agency planned to replace the shuttle program with a new one aimed at returning astronauts to the moon. But Obama canceled that plan and gave NASA a new directive for deep space exploration, including a crewed asteroid mission by 2025.

“And I have tasked the men and women of NASA with an ambitious new mission: to break new boundaries in space exploration, ultimately sending Americans to Mars. I know they are up to the challenge – and I plan to be around to see it,” Obama said.

Obama’s comments came just days after he said NASA needs to develop new technologies in order allow faster and longer spaceflights.

“Frankly I have been pushing NASA to revamp its vision,” Obama said on July 6 in answer to question from a Twitter user during a Town Hall event. “The shuttle did some extraordinary work in low orbit: experiments, the International Space Station, moving cargo. It was an extraordinary accomplishment and we’re very proud of the work that it did. But now what we need is that next technological breakthrough.”

NASA currently plans to use a new space capsule, called the Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, for future deep space missions. The vehicle is based on work for the agency’s Orion spacecraft developed for the previous moon plan.

A major hurdle to Obama’s deep space exploration vision is NASA’s budget, which is mired in a maze of congressional battles over cutbacks.

On Thursday, the House Appropriations commerce, justice and science committee, which oversees NASA funding, released a $16.8 billion 2012 budget proposal for the agency that is nearly $2 billion less than what Obama proposed in his 2012 budget request.

space.com (July 10, 2011)

How Barack Obama ruined NASA space exploration

When Obama came into office, he did what a number of other presidents have done to determine their goals for NASA: he formed a presidential commission to study the space agency and come up with some recommendations.

The Augustine Commission, so named after its chairman former Lockheed Martin CEO Norm Augustine, returned with a set of recommendations some months later. The commission [Obama’s advisers — ed.] found that the program then in existence, Project Constellation, was not executable under any reasonable budget. The program, started by President George W. Bush, had been underfunded and had faced technical challenges for years. The commissions offered two alternatives. The first was Moon First, which would have focused America’s efforts on a return to the moon. The second was Flexible Path, which would have sent American astronauts to every destination besides the moon—the asteroids, the moons of Mars, and so on. Both options would lead to the holy grail of space exploration enthusiasts, a mission to Mars.

Internet trolls spread contradictory explanations as to why the space shuttles were discontinued.

Why space shuttles were decommissioned, some random posts, probably containing disinformation to cover up Obamas political decision:

[ -1-, -2-, -3- ]

space policy of the Donald Trump administration

On December 11, 2017, President Donald Trump issued a presidential memorandum (also known as Space Policy Directive-1)[3] amending Barack Obama’s “Presidential Policy Directive 4,” changing the wording by replacing the paragraph beginning “Set far-reaching exploration milestones”[4] with: “Lead an innovative and sustainable program of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the solar system and to bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities. Beginning with missions beyond low-Earth orbit, the United States will lead the return of humans to the Moon for long-term exploration and utilization, followed by human missions to Mars and other destinations.

As usual, Elon is clowning. The demonstration of the “cyber truck” is a joke.


He also took the opportunity to call one of the “diving heroes” from the Thai cave rescue a pedophile, for no reason. Barely escaped conviction. Elon’s defense partly consisted of the diver previously asking Elon to “shove his submarine where …”.


Elon Musk on Twitter, appearing drunk from liquor he gave a brand name related to cars and thereby driving! (“Teslaquila”)


These fancies can be seen as PR stunts. But probably it would have been better if Elon had participated more in SpaceX launch with equipment for ISS, which is now (Dec 6, 2019) in progress.

The space program has previously been the pride of the United States. (The space shuttle problems were also addressed.) But now the United States has not sent any astronaut to space since 2011. The United States has now paid the Russians $ 4 billion to transport a total of 70 astronauts to the ISS. It must be seen as most degrading

Boeing are also building spacecraft now. However, in the media, SpaceX and Elon Musk often represent the US space program. One may wonder why.

It seems that international networks are attacking countries and their self-esteem. The well organized Swedish society has been crushed by mass immigration. Sport was important in the former Soviet Union and Russia. Now, Russia is being attacked maximally in doping / anti-doping (sometimes by what this blog considers fake evidence).

Have these networks also infiltrated the US space program and placed the anti-hero Elon Musk as a representative of it? Authorities have questioned, for example, whether the dope-smoking Musk can be granted permission to visit military facilities. They seem to try to create the opposite of “the right stuff”. National symbols are dismounted, be it flags or space programs

NASA top contractor Elon Musk smoking dope during the Joe Rogan podcast – Is he “the right stuff”?

Elon Musk believes that our world is not real but only a computer simulation, like in the movie The Matrix. That has given rise to memes with true or distorted quotes connecting this view of his to his use of marijuana. See: [www.snowleopard.info/global/elon_musk_smoking_pot_dope_joe_rogan_meme_003/]

Musk considered taking Tesla private at a share price of $420, the figure being a code word for marijuana, a statement that also triggered a federal lawsuit. [ cnbc, theinquirer ]

Musk is only playing a game and is supported by the global networks that run this world. He therefore never gets into problems but the trouble just bounces of him, earning him the moniker “The Teflon Man”. [ Bloomberg ]

Secret international networks place ignorant people in positions where they can be perceived as role models, which serve to lead young people to revolutionary or generally flippant attitudes. F.ex Swede Kasselstrand (false flag AfS party, having infiltrated Swedish nationalism) is an immigrant confronting snob with a fake agenda. It is not possible to cast out immigrants who have already arrived like he and AfS advocates. Instead mass immigration must be stopped. AfS is trying to intensify the conflicts between immigrants and indigenous Swedes. No one in the elite wants integration. They want division and identity politics. Greta Thunberg is trying to provoke young people to revolution.

Internet trolls then try to seduce young people into believing that these false front figures are something to emulate.

The role models set for young people in Asia are much better for everyone. F.ex are portraits of the best performing school pupils posted in public places.

Commercial Resupply Mission – 19

SpaceX sends equipment to ISS. In newspapers, an experiment by beer manufacturer Budweiser is often mentioned first. This gives the impression that the space journeys do not perform essential tasks.

The video will not even let us see SpaceX signature procedure – touch down of the orbital booster.
“of course I still love you” is the name of the floating landing platform. The unusual naming used by SpaceX reduces its credibility. One rocket was previously called “The big falcon rocket” where many interpreted “falcon” as “f—ing”.

The Russian space program has been comparatively safe.

As of 2018, there have been 14 astronaut (US) and 4 cosmonaut (USSR, Russia) fatalities during spaceflight

No Soviet or Russian cosmonauts have died during spaceflight since 1971.


Considering these statistics we must also consider that the Russians are also responsible for sending the US astronauts to space since 2011. (This is written in dec 2019)

[ Oct 2018 Soyuz incident with successful activation of capsule abort safety systems, never have been activated during the last 35 years! ]

The rocket, Russia’s Soyuz system, is one of several flavors of the same basic rocket the country has been launching since the late 1960s, for crewed and uncrewed missions alike. Today’s vehicle type, a Soyuz-FG rocket, is the only design currently certified to carry humans. It has been launching since 2001 and has long been slated to be replaced by a newer model, although it has not previously failed, Asif Siddiqi, a space historian at Fordham University, told Space.com.

Even over the full history of Soyuz rockets, failures have not resulted in any fatalities during launch, he added. The two other serious launch incidents occurred in 1975 and 1983, respectively.


The Cygnus spacecraft is an expendable American automated cargo spacecraft developed by Orbital Sciences and now built and launched by Northrop Grumman as part of NASA’s Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) developmental program. It is launched by Northrop Grumman’s Antares rocket or ULA’s Atlas V and is designed to transport supplies to the International Space Station (ISS) following the retirement of the American Space Shuttle. Since August 2000 ISS resupply missions have been regularly flown by the Russian Progress spacecraft, as well as by the European Automated Transfer Vehicle, and the Japanese H-II Transfer Vehicle. With the Cygnus spacecraft and the SpaceX Dragon, NASA seeks to increase its partnerships with domestic commercial aviation and aeronautics industry.[7]


The old arms peddler NG seems to have carried the concept of “fire and forget” into ISS deliveries. They might have been inspired by other articles among their products, like nuclear armed intercontinental ballistic missiles! The Cygnus is the opposite of SpaceX reusable rockets. The Cygnus is disposable.

Northrop Grumman can trace its lineage back to the beginning of the 20th century and has created a myriad of products such as ballistic missiles, all-weather radars, Apollo Lunar Module, land and sea-based fighter aircraft and Stealth bombers.[28]


July 26, 2019
Boeing says it will withdraw from a massive Pentagon program to replace America’s ground-based nuclear missiles, citing concerns with how the Pentagon has handled the procurement.
The move makes Northrop Grumman the sole bidder for the program. Unless the Pentagon changes course, Northrop will be locked it into a military program that should be worth tens of billions of dollars over several decades.

The dispute arose from Northrop Grumman’s 2018 acquisition of a company called Orbital ATK, a dominant producer of rocket motors.

Loren Thompson, a defense consultant who works with Boeing, said Northrop Grumman is now “headed for a monopoly” on the air-, land- and sea-based legs of the United States’ nuclear strike capability.

Jeff Bezos/Blue Origin sends art and childrens postcards to space! The name of the rocket connects to Christian symbols – “The New Shepherd”, it is fully reusable.

– – – –

New Shepard is carried a number of science experiments to suborbital space on the NS-12 flight. Among them were OSCAR, a NASA investigation, named after Oscar, the famously grumpy “Sesame Street” character, that will explore recycling in space. The spacecraft is also holding a weightlessness experiment designed by students from Columbia University and a NASA investigation to examine how gene expression changes for plants in space.

There is also art on board! The capsule is carrying two art experiments for the winners of the Art in Space Contest, which was held by the band Ok Go, which asked middle school and high school students to come up with innovative art projects to launch to space.

The capsule also contains postcards from kids as part of Blue Origin’s nonprofit Club for the Future. For this project, children wrote postcards about what they think humankind’s future in space could and should look like.


SpaceX is Delivering Cannabis to the Space Station


ISS activity 2019

SpaceX and Boeing develop in parallel. SpaceX made its first unmanned delivery to ISS (CRS-19) in the beginning of Dec 2019. Boeing launches similar mission on Dec 20. Boeing does not land the first stage like SpaxeX (the first stage is Russian built).

[SpaceX] Dragon is equipped to carry both pressurized and unpressurized cargo – the former within its recoverable capsule and the latter in the aft trunk section which also houses the vehicle’s solar arrays. The recoverable capsule provides a unique capability to return large amounts of cargo to Earth, whereas all of the other uncrewed spacecraft currently servicing the space station are not designed to survive reentry. Only the capsule is recovered – Dragon’s trunk will burn up when it reenters Earth’s atmosphere at the end of the mission.

The Dragon capsule can be reused for multiple missions. CRS-19 is the third flight for spacecraft C106, which first flew in September 2014 for the CRS-4 mission.

Det blir väl något i den här stilen.

SpaceX borde vara klara för bemannad uppskjutning nu. Men det är inte så enkelt. Den kapsel gjorde nödtesten var egentligen den som besättningen skulle använt eftersom den första exploderat i april. Så nu får man bygga nya kapslar. Samt andra problem skall lösas. Man pressar tidsschemat.

NASA’s plan to move up the start of operational crew missions to the International Space Station (ISS) by Boeing and SpaceX could pose serious safety risks, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

NASA is facing a challenge maintaining crew presence on the station with both companies running more than three years behind schedule. The space agency will have only one American astronaut on the station beginning in April and none by October after that astronaut returns to Earth.

NASA is currently negotiating with Roscosmos to purchase an additional seat aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft to fill any gap in the fall.

SpaceX is targeting the second quarter for the crewed flight test. Boeing might need to repeat the automated mission

GAO is concerned because NASA now plans to complete the certification and flight readiness steps concurrently instead of conducting them sequentially.

“SpaceX continues to address technical risks identified by program officials. These include (1) SpaceX’s plan to conduct launch vehicle propellant loading procedures after the astronauts are on board and (2) the design of its launch vehicle engine.


wwr: 70197902
Boeing hittade aldrig felet och måste skriva om stora delar av mjukvaran. Då lär de behöva ny testuppskjutning. De har visst satt av en halv miljard för detta redan. När de korrigerade mjukvaran i max kom det nya fel förstås. Ett hittade de just.

Boeing and NASA are still investigating a software timing error that prevented Starliner’s engine from firing as planned to raise its orbit for a rendezvous with ISS. The spacecraft’s thrusters were also over stressed when they fired outside planned operating parameters to get Starliner into a safe orbit.

GAO reports that Boeing is also working a number of technical issues.

This includes a risk that the initiators that trigger separation events, such as the separation of the crew and service module prior to reentry, may generate debris and damage the spacecraft. In June 2019, we found that Boeing had identified a solution to contain the debris that was sufficient for its test flights.

Since our last report, program officials said that a number of problems were found in recent testing and that the independent engineering technical authority noted that the current initiator containment design is not acceptable for the crewed flight test. Program officials told us that they accepted this risk for the uncrewed flight test, but that additional testing will need to occur before the crewed flight test.


SpaceX borde ha tagit greppet och åka bemannat nu. Men det är inte så enkelt där heller.
(FB) SpaceX – Uppskjutningar med mera.

Obamas beslut att avsluta rymdfärjorna kan ha varit ett försök att motverka nationell självkänsla. Rymdprogrammet har ännu inte hämtat sig från det. Boeing och SpaceX är pressade. (Bransons Virgin Galactic totalkvaddade 2014, en död testpilot.) Ryssarna sköter uppskjutningarna tills vidare.

On April 17, 2019, due to reassignment schedules with the Commercial Crew Development program, her mission was extended to February 2020 return to Earth after 328 days – which is the longest single continuous stay in space for a woman


Förmodligen beror förlängningen på att amerikanerna riskerar förlora all representation på ISS om de inte kan lifta med ryssarna igen. Därför förlängs deras vistelser.

SpaceX ligger närmast till för första amerikanska uppskjutning sedan 2011. Vi får hoppas SpaceX och NASA inte går för fort fram med säkerhetsfrågorna när en viss tidspress råder. SpaceX räknar med att skjuta upp astronauter före halvårsskiftet.

Vilket betyder att SLS inte kommer att användas för Artemis! Kanske för att skicka Orion separat till Månens omloppsbana. Månlandaren ska i vilket fall bäras av Vulcan, John Glenn eller Starship (inte Falcon Heavy). Jag förstår inte hur den ska kunna bäras av Vulcan som knappt är mer kraftfull än Falcon 9. Falcon Heavy med ungefär dubbla kapaciteten skulle nätt och jämnt kunna göra det, om ascent vehicle landas med en andra FH. Och John Glenn ligger fortfarande bara på ritbordet. Så det blir SpaceX som tar hem det med Starship. Plötsligt framstår 2024 som ett realistiskt datum!

Hugo.Drax: 71444970
Jodå, Orion är med och är en central del av Artemis nasa.gov

Från jorden till månen så är det tänkt att astronauterna ska färdas i Orionkapseln som ska skjutas upp med SLS. Väl i omloppsbana runt månen så kommer månlandaren från SpaceX, Blue Origin, eller Dynetics beroende på vilket av bolagen som kvalificerar sig om tio månader att användas för att ta ner dom till månens yta.

Med tanke på att Jeff Bezos ännu bara knapp lyckats kravla sig till kanten av rymden medförande barnens vykort medan däremot SpaceX skjuter upp bemannat denna månad (och levererat till ISS sedan många år) så känns det som att Blue Origin inte kan ta ifatt försprånget på 10 månader?

Samma med OneWeb som är närmaste konkurrenten till Starlink. Företaget ligger på randen till konkurs. Grundaren åker Tesla.

Man kan börja tro att den “konkurrens” som ställs upp mot SpaceX inte är allvarligt menad. Massmedia och kapital ligger helt bakom SpaceX.

The idea of NASA funding space rides for researchers and astronauts goes back more than a decade. Lori Garver, who served as NASA’s deputy administrator during the Obama administration, said today in a series of tweets that such a plan had been drawn up back in 2013, “but once I announced it — status quo astronauts got it overturned.”
“They primarily used the ‘safety’ argument,” Garver tweeted. “I said policy change was to incentivize/prime the pump, and people wouldn’t fly until vehicles were certified, etc. Back then anything that wasn’t developed, owned and operated by the government (including the Russian government) was suspect.”



Kaboom! The Biggest Space Bloopers of 2019

wwr: 69701114
Du menar att låta landningen förlita sig på Super-Draco-motorerna som totalexploderade i april?

Fri: 69701194
Ja, eftersom Super Draco är så extremt mycket säkrare än fallskärmar, som ju failar att utlösas hela tiden. Inte bara på Boeings test med Starliner nyligen, utan även för ESA:s ExoMars-landare, vars uppskjutning därför kanske kommer att ställas därför, och många gånger genom rymdfartens historia. Dessutom är fallskärmar bara användbara vid bra väder på Jorden, inte alls på Månen och bara som ett av tre steg på Mars. Tänk om man behöver nödlanda ISS besättning oavsett väder? Raketmotorer används dagligen ombord på otaliga satelliter utan problem. SpaceX vill använda raketmotorer för att landa Dragon, såsom de numera rutinmässigt landar Falcon 9 med motorer, det är NASA som insisterar på att fallskärmar måste användas, som på 1960-talet. Soyuz använder redan en raketmotor för att mjuklanda astronauter, spationauter och kosmonauter.

Dragons launch abort har redan demonstrerats framgångsrikt.

wwr: 69701326
Videon är från 2015. Men det talas inte så mycket om den nu. Testen 11/1 blir ju dessutom under belastning av en uppskjutning.

Jag har inte sett SpaceX “krav” om raketlandning.
Landning med motorer måste först prövas ut. Ryssar har ju alltid använt fallskärm. Ingen ryss har dött under rymdfärd sedan 1971.

Väder har ju aldrig vållat problem tidigare. Man får väl ta ned kapseln där det inte stormar.

Att puffa till en rymdkapsel med en raketmotor är en sak. Att landa stabilt är.en annan. Motorlandningar är också väderkänsliga. Och se hur det gick med en vanlig “orbital insertion” förra veckan. Man måste säkert ta med mycket extra drivmedel.

Men Soyuz stabiliseras av av skärm och man ger en liten puff på slutet.
youtu.be 4:30
Ryssarna jobbar ju metodiskt. Provar en raketmotor sista sekunden. Det är för tidigt att helt byta system.

Utan att vara expert bedömer jag i dagsläget fallskärm som mycket säkrare när USA bara får ordning på det igen. Kanske hade en enkel fallskärm räddat Challenger-besättningen.

SpaceX achieves key safety milestone for crewed flight with 10th parachute test

Jag uppfattar det som att SpaceX lyckats släppa testkapseln 10 gånger i rad från flygplan utan trassel med fallskärmarna. Jag är verkligen ingen expert men jag trodde man krävde mer vid testning av huvudfallskärmarna. Att kalla det för en säkerhetsmässig milstolpe visar ju att fallskärmarna har utgjort problem. (När en av tre skärmar pajade för Boeing tidigare i år hänvisade man till 47 tidigare lyckade släpp från flygplan.)

Artikeln låter nästan som ett reklamblad

The current design is the third major iteration of SpaceX’s parachute for Crew Dragon, featuring upgraded materials and improved stitching for the best possible reliability and durability during flight

Den 30/12 skjuter SpaceX upp 120 Starlink.

En lite tuffare test kommer vid SpaxeX uppskjutning den 11 jan. Då måste räddningssystemet fungera. Vad jag förstår ställs då även högre krav på att fallskärmarna kan utvecklas rätt än vid de tidigare testerna med släpp från flygplan. Men man gör bara en sådan test innan man skjuter upp astronauter.

Amrisarna har ju god teknisk grund, men verkar vara i en svacka. Alla 737 max står på marken sedan mars efter två svåra olyckor. Boeing nådde inte ISS förra veckan. Högste dirren fick sparken igår. SpaceX Teflon-Elon verkar däremot inget bita på oberoende av vad han Twittrar (eller röker).

The general director of Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, Dmitri Rogozin, on Tuesday accused SpaceX, the company of the American Elon Musk, of unfair competition for the low prices of its launch of space devices in the international market.

“He charges the Pentagon three times and takes advantage of the profits to lower prices in the international market,” Rogozin said at the Mashuk 2019 youth forum, cited by the official Russian agency RIA Novosti.

However, despite considering the prices “unfair, out of the market,” he thanked the US company for its existence because they cannot “fall asleep on the laurels.”

“We controlled 40 percent of the launch services market … while we now face a challenge,” Rogozin added.

Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft may have failed a key test by flying into the wrong orbit


Boeing’s spacecraft Starliner did not achieve the proper orbit it needed to reach the space station shortly after launching early Friday morning.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a tweet that flight controllers were “working the issue.”
“We are getting good burns and are elevating the orbit of the spacecraft,” Bridenstine said.

It’s unclear whether Starliner will still be able to reach the space station. NASA ended the webcast of the mission earlier than expected as Boeing attempted to find a solution.

No people are on board the capsule, as the flight was planned to be one of the final key tests before Starliner flies NASA astronauts.

Det var tydligen något datorfel så kapseln använde sina motorer vid fel tidpunkt och kommer inte att nå ISS.

Boeing Starliner fails mission, can’t reach space station after flying into wrong orbit


SpaceX har ju ännu mer problem, två stora explosioner bara i år, dock tursamt utan personskada. Deras nästa testuppskjutning är planerad till 11 jan.

Rymdfärjorna lades ju ned. Amrisarna har nog inte skjutit upp traditionella bemannade raketer med fallskärm på nästan 50 år. De har lite att ta ifatt just nu.

wwr: 69667256
Jag undrar om amrisarna glömt hur fallskärmar fungerar. Det kom fram under ett kongressförhör att SpaceX slagit i backen rejält under en testuppskjutning tidigare i år.

Gerstenmaier said the cause of the failure wasn’t known yet.


När NASA-Orion “testade räddningssystemet” i somras hade man inte ens (vågat?) montera fallskärmar. (“För dyrt med fallskärmar” sade man, ojoj)

Boeing startade med en flackare bana idag. Den skall visst bara ge astronauterna 3.5G under längre tid. Man kan spekulera i om detta kan ha gjort att farkostens dator inte hittade tidpunkten för att korrigera till en snygg rund omloppsbana till ISS.

Tills vidare är det nog säkrast att åka ryskt. De har ju underhållit samma princip i över 50 år.

wwr: 69667730
Nää. Jag skulle inte åka med Elon ännu. Israelerna hade byggt en kommunikationssatellit (Amos-6) till Zuckerberg som han skulle använda till att indoktrinera afrikaner med Facebook. Här utplånas den totalt när SpaceX exploderar magnifikt. Det var 2016.
I april i år exploderade deras räddningssystem.

Jag undrar om någon av Boeing eller SpaceX skjuter upp bemannat nästa år. Boeings kapsel idag innehöll bara en feministisk testdocka och en teddybjörn. Men troligen skulle en astronaut ha överlevt dagens miss.

SpaceX sköt även upp en israelisk månlandare som kraschade på månen i april.

In April of this year, Israel aimed for the moon with a novel lander called Beresheet built by the private group SpaceIL. The probe, which launched Feb. 21 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, was poised to become the first privately built moon lander to softly set down on the lunar surface. But when it arrived at the moon on April 11, something went wrong.

Instead of landing safely on the moon’s Sea of Serenity, Beresheet missed its landing burn and crashed into the lunar surface instead. Despite the failure, SpaceIL has vowed to build a new Beresheet and return to the moon in the mid-2020s.

Kapselns datorer utförde manövern för att gå in i omloppsbana för tidigt och man hamnade i en äggformad omloppsbana på ungefär halva höjden som ISS håller.

Man hade även problem med kontakten med rymdfarkosten. Man påpekar att det kanske hade gått bättre om det funnits astronauter i kapseln och inte bara en testdocka. Astronauterna kanske hade kunnat åtgärda problemet. Fast en test måste ju fungera, naturligtvis. Det kommer dock att gå att landa kapseln.

Varför datorn fallerat vet man inte ännu.


Man landar rymdfarkosten i morgon.

#Starliner Update: We have made a final decision – Starliner will not dock with the @Space_Station and will return to White Sands on Sunday.


wwr: 69680728
Boeing säger att felet har sitt ursprung strax före starten. Starliner hämtar då en tidsangivelse från Atlasraketen, men den hämtade fel tidsangivelse. Exakt varför detta skedde vet man inte.

Naturligtvis jämför en del kommentatorer dessa mjukvarufel med olyckorna med 737-max.

Landning planeras till strax före kl 2 i eftermiddag. Det går bl.a att se här space.com

Jessica Meir was born in Caribou, Maine, to a Swedish mother who was a nurse and an Israeli father of Iraqi-Jewish descent, who worked as a physician. Her mother is from Västerås, Sweden; her father was born in Iraq and moved to Israel as a child. He later moved to Sweden where he met Meir’s mother who grew up in a Christian family. The couple moved to Maine where Meir was born.[7]

Although her mother did not convert, Meir grew up attending synagogue in Presque Isle, Maine.[7]

Jag har inte alls följt detta. Men man kan ju lära sig av att diskutera. Vad jag tror mig komma ihåg från den senaste tidens googling är att ryssarna har bra säkerhetsstatistik. Av de 18 astronauter som dött under rymdfärd är 14 amerikaner och 4 ryssar. Då har ju dessutom ryssarna skjutit upp över 70 amerikaner prickfritt sedan 2011. Ingen ryss har dött i rymden sedan 1971. De senare rymdfärjorna kunde tyvärr inte montera räddningsstolar för 7 astronauter så av etiska skäl användes inte heller raketstol för pilot och befälhavare. Medan solid-fuel-fyrverkeriet brann var det kört vid ett haveri.

Ryssarna mal ju på med samma konstruktion. På 35 år har inte räddningssystemet behövt aktiveras. Men förra året var det skarpt läge och det fungerade och räddade en amris och en ryss.

Orion testade sitt räddningssystem (också monterat framför kapseln) i somras. Det fungerade, fast man använde inga fallskärmar

SpaceX sätter 8 raketmotorer bakom kapseln. Boeing något liknande. SpaceX räddningssystem totalexploderade i april. (Men fungerade i november.)

SpaceX och Boeing har oprövade räddningssystem.

Jag har bara googlat en del, men det kan vara kul att lära sig lite nu när SpaceX är så “i ropet”.

wwr: 69633397 2019, Dec 17

Man missade tydligen noskonen, men kommunikationssatelliten levererades bra. Vad jag förstår så bidrar den med Internet dels till flyg, fartyg och räddningstjänst mycket i Japan dels Internet till öar i Stilla Havet.

SpaceX verkar vara inblandade i en rymdkapplöpning med Boeing om första amerikanska, bemannade uppskjutning sedan 2011. SpaceX dockade nyligen med ISS. 20 dec planerar Boeing samma sak. Boeings testdocka bär pannband och är uppkallad efter en feministikon.

Rosie the astronaut — https://www.space.com/amp/boeing-starliner-rosie-astronaut-test-dummy.html

SpaceX planerar testa räddningssystemet vid en verklig uppskjutning 4 jan. Boeing verkar hoppa över samma test. Den gången Boeing testade räddningssystemet från marken fungerade bara 2 av 3 fallskärmar (det låtsas man inte om i videon, man klipper snabbt inslaget) men det duger anser Boeing och går vidare. SpaceX räddningssystem exploderade och totalkvaddade under testning i april.

Boeing tänjer också regelboken genom att använda rysk motor. SpaceX drog dem inför domstol för detta (hänvisande till Ukrainasanktionerna) men Boeing vann till sist.

Den 30 dec skickar SpaceX upp “svartmålade” Starlink-satelliter. Yrkesastronomer har klagat över att teleskopen blir bländade. Fast i ett uttalande verkar SpaceX uppfatta att man åtgärdar satelliterna ‘för barnens skull’.

“Astronomy is one of a few things that gets little kids excited about space,” Shotwell said. “There are a lot of adults that get excited, too, who either depend on it for their living or for entertainment. But we want to make sure we do the right thing, to make sure little kids can look through their telescopes. It’d be cool for them to see a Starlink. I think that’s cool. But they should be looking at Saturn and the moon.”

wwr: 69603756 2019, Dec 14

Vi verkar kunna se fram mot en del jul- och nyårs-fyrverkerier. Även SpaceX lite spektakulära uppskjutning med test av räddningssystemet kommer att ske ganska snart, dock tidigast den 4:e januari.

Sådana räddningssystem har funnits på Apollo och Soyuz sedan 70-talet. En rysk och en amerikansk astronaut räddades med det systemet i Soyuz, förra året. Men SpaceX har ännu inte detta färdigt. SpaceX fokusering på att återvinna de uppskjutna raketerna är lite märklig, tycker jag, utan att vara expert.

Flera länder skickar redan utrustning till ISS, t.ex japaner och europeiska företag.

Gamla vapen-langaren Northrop Grumman gör tvärt emot SpaceX när de levererar till ISS. De kör hela raketen (Cygnus) som engångsmaterial och bränner upp rubbet vid återinträdet i atmosfären. Deras “fire and forget”-filosofi kanske inspirerats av andra bästsäljare i deras lager, såsom kärnvapenbärande ballistiska robotar (De har numera USA-monopol på dessa.) För NG är kanske uppskjutningar lika rutin som för oss andra att gå till snabbköpet.

Boeing utvecklar “astronaut-taxi” parallellt med SpaceX. De två företagen verkar följa nästan exakt samma riktlinjer. Boeings första leverans till ISS sker 20 dec. De landar heller inga raketer. Deras första steg har byggts av ryssarna.

Det amerikanska Orion-systemet har redan genomfört en lyckad test av samma räddningssystem i somras. Det skrivs inte mycket om det. Jag skulle tro att tystnaden beror på att det är Trump som satte fart på Orion. Medierna gillar inte honom. Troligen kommer detta system att placera den första kvinnan på månen 2024. Projektet är uppkallat efter Artemis – Apollos syster.

Vad jag förstår så förstörde Obama det amerikanska rymdprogrammet genom att stänga ned rymdfärjorna och ge direktiv om luddiga, långsiktiga mål om att landa på en asteroid 2025. Det verkar vara detta beslut som givit plats för den märklige Musk och SpaceX (stundtals) landande raketer. Att landa raketer är utmanande men tillför inte direkt något till utforskningen av rymden.

Så ser man på SpaceX livliga uppskjutningsverksamhet och mediauppmärksamhet så kan man tro att detta åtminstone delvis har till uppgift att täcka över Obamas beslut att stänga ned rymdfärjorna och skicka pengarna till ryssarna för att de skulle göra jobbet. (Obama collusion? Närmare $5 miljarder till Ryssland!) Jag börjar tro att Obamas beslut och delar av SpaceX-programmet som följde kan handla om att motarbeta den självkänsla som amerikanernas rymdprogram gav landet.

Dessa uppskjutningar av SpaceX kan ses som ett resultat av Obamas nedskärningar i rymdbudgeten.

Men Trump har ändrat på det nu. Inte bara verkstaden i Kina tas hem. USA skall även skjuta upp sina astronauter själva. NASA:s första bemannade uppskjutning sedan 2011 planeras till november 2020 och månlandning alltså 2024.

Om SpaceX uppskjutning i januari går bra så är det planerat att även SpaceX skall ge genomföra en bemannad uppskjutning nästa år.

Jeff Bezos/Blue Origin flyger tills vidare lägre med den helt återvinningsbara raketen “The New Shepard” (!). Senast transporterade den bl.a konst och vykort som barn ritat.

Elon och SpaceX håller stilen. Förra SpaceX-uppskjutningen till ISS innehöll experiment av öltillverkaren Budweiser och nästa SpaceX-uppskjutning planeras innehålla haschplantor.

Jag vill framhålla att jag inte är expert på detta område. Men Elon Musk och SpaceX uppskjutningar är ju så hårt lanserade i media att man gärna vill försöka sätta deras verksamhet i sammanhang.

SpaceX Crew Dragon update, 2019 12 07


Other news from space is also negative.

Female astronaut Anne McClain is accused of committing a crime in space. She has accessed a bank account connected to her spouse. The possible crime is petty and seems to be a way to give media a reason to focus on

1. Female astronauts. The first all female space walk is soon to take place (including other astronauts).

2. She is homosexual and raises a child together with her female spouse.

3. Further demeaning the space program, connecting it to a crime.



The current developments of SpaceX are:

1. Landing and reusing orbital booster rockets.

2. Introducing 8 rocket engines into the capsule itself. Thereby the capsule should to be able to rescue itself in case of orbital booster rocket failure. Test

Spending much efforts on these developments, US asteonauts are still travelling by Russian space craft.

Landing the orbital boosters has proven very difficult, but slow progress has been made. It is not certain all this effort just to reuse the first step is worth the trouble.

Adding rocket engines to the capsule has also met problems (April, 2019).

It seems the development of the capsule rocket engines is forced by the Russian space program saving the lives of one Russian and one American astronaut using such a system. Soyuz incident 2018.


wwr: 71081037
Boeing “gör om” den misslyckade obemannade uppskjutningen.

Detta sätter mer press på SpaceX att göra en bemannad uppskjutning.

Boeing kom efter i rymd-racet med den misslyckade testuppskjutningen i december. Men i grunden verkar det finnas en del bra egenskaper i deras system:
– medför 7 astronauter (SpaceX: 4)
– använder 3 fallskärmar (SpaceX: 4 (tidigare ej utprovat))
– medför inte explosivt bränsle i landningen
– kan landa både på land och i vatten (SpaceX landningar på land inte utprovade)

Boeing hade ett problem vid ett fallskärmstest. Men man påstår att man fann felet, en sprint till en av fallskärmarna hade fallit ur.

%%%%% Boeing


The planned 42.000 Starlink satellites seems like an unrealistic goal. Each has a life span of 5 years, meaning that 700 satellites must be replaced every month. This year SpaceX has only launched 120 satellites altogether. Each satellite can only supply wideband internet to 1000 users. Most people have Internet today so the satellites are not needed. Even remote islands like Easter Island have Internet using geostationary satellites. Some areas in Africa donot seem to have Internet. But that is because the people do not need it and maybe unfortunately can not pay for it. Draw cables to these places would be more efficient. SpaceX Starlink satellites are not possible to maintain and do not have a market.
Starlink continues here

The SpaceX Starship Mk1 looks like something out of science fiction. It is intended for f.ex Mars flights. Such are naturally out of the scope for SpaceX, at least now. But unrealistic targets and missed deadlines are their characteristics.

The entire SpaceX operation seems to be wrongly aimed. It is not intended to extend our exploration of space. It is intended to look busy with space related activity, but it leads nowhere.

SpaceX does not focus on space exploration. Tesla does not focus on cheap efficient EVs for everyone. In the same way globalist, infiltrating AfS does not gocus on stopping mass immigration but on the unrealistic task of sending established immigrants back home. Both Musk and AfS leader Kasselstrand are heavily supported by Internet trolls.

It seems the globalists do not wish us to travel. Musk will keep us from space and Greta Thunberg forbids us to fly.

Is Curiosity Sky Crane real? The extremely advanced sky crane was never fully tested on earth.

wwr: 70048803
Curiosity fungerar fortfarande. Den hade problem förra veckan, men de löstes.

När man ser animation av landningen känns det nästan som science fiction. Bara landaren som flyger runt väger 900 kilo (motsv 342 kilo på Mars, men trögheten är densamma). Det verkar inte finnas någon video från tester på jorden. Det hade varit intressant att se.


Fri: 70050001
Jag hittar inte heller någon flygtest med Sky Crane. Ett drop test som inte är så dramatiskt:

Ytterligare demos med Curiosity, ytterst simpla jämfört med Sky Crane
[ -1- -2- -3- ]

wwr: 70050098
Ja. Var det den enda testen de gjorde innan de skickade hela klabbet till Mars så måste de acceptera att folk kan fråga sig hur i hela friden det kunde fungera. (Helt automatiskt utan mänsklig inverkan.) 😀

Fri: 70050194
De är väl nöjda med att ha testat delarna var för sig. Apollo-landningen hade heller aldrig testats. Den skulle inte hållit för en testlandning i Jordens gravitation och man hade knappt teknologi för att landa den utan besättning ombord.

Mars 2020 ska ju också landas med Sky Crane, om ett år och en månad. Dragonfly, en drönare som ska landa på Saturnus måne atmosfäriska Titan 2034, har ett nytt landningssätt. När den kopplat loss fallskärmen så använder den sina egna propellrar för att mjuklanda. Den kommer sedan att flyga en halvtimme varje månad till nya platser. Mars2020:s lilla drönare blir häftig att se bilder från redan till nästa vår.

wwr: 70050317
Visst testades månlandarna.

Det är mycket underligt att man inte får se den där SUV:en flyga och använda radar för att själv leta efter platt landningsområde! Man kan nästan säga att det måste testas.

Det är nästan så man funderar om den ryske rymdchefen har rätt när han skojar

A question searching for videos showing the testing of sky crane was automatically hidden from the large forum Quora. Quora and Stack Exchange are very strongly moderated about anything related to politics or even just independent thinking. Later replies arrived via email. This is not how Quora has functioned for me previously.

Did rover Curiosity land on Mars?

Sky Crane Full Motion Drop Test
Videos from testing only show extremely simple procedures in the lab. Like the Sky Crane Full Motion Drop Test. That is the most complex test shown! It was considered the major test and all staff was called in. That is not enough to risk millions sending it to Mars.

The testing only shows much simpler tests than the sky crane:

Perseverance – Mars rover 2020

Nu är det mindre än hundra dagar kvar till den nya Mars-bilens avfärd. I dagarna tankar man upp landningssystemet. Den kommer att skjutas upp i slutet av juli och landa på Mars den 18 februari 2021.

Under nedfärden med fallskärm tar ekipaget bilder av terrängen och jämför med bilder tagna från omloppsbanan. Därefter frigörs den ett ton tunga bilen från fallskärmarna (väger kanske en tredjedel på Mars) och raketmotorer styr in bilen till en bra landningsplats. På 8 meters höjd firas bilen ned, repen klipps och landningsmodulen flyger iväg.

Allt sker givetvis automatiskt eftersom det skulle ta för lång tid för styrsignaler att nå från jorden.

I dagarna har man monterat helikoptern under rovern. Den frigörs under rovern som sedan kör iväg. Helikoptern börjar sina flygningar i maj 2021. Atmosfären på Mars är bara 1% så tunn som på jorden så helikoptern får nog snurra på bra.

Där kan man snacka hi-tech. Borde vara värt en egen tråd.


wwr: 71145198
Här är en animation av den förra bilens landning. Bilen i år landar på samma sätt. Nästan ofattbart. Bilarna väger ett ton på jorden och drygt 300 kg på Mars.

Helikoptern som skall följa med i år:

wwr: 71645693
Här finns video och annat från testningen av Perseverance.

Man testar att den klarar att snurra runt, skaka, beysas med solljus, vacum etc.

Men den enorma hi-tech-grejen med Curiosity och Perseverance är ju landningen med Sky Crane. Det finns ingen video från den testningen.

Efter fallskärmsfallet flyger bilen runt i en raketsläde, letar själv upp en plan landningsplats och firas ned i nylonrep. Det skulle jag vilja se. Borde inte NASA/JPL åtminstone kunna dokumentera när detta sker på Mars och visa i efterhand.

Det måste vara en av de större tekniska innovationerna. Svårare än att landa på månen?

wwr: 71799403
Kina passar också på att åka till Mars i sommar, när Mars och jorden befinner sig nära varandra.

Animationen av deras system ser nästan lika imponerande ut som NASA/JPL-rovern i denna tråd. Fast de kör inte med Sky Crane. Den kinesiska bilen rullar ned på en ramp.

Liksom med Perseverance och Curiosity säger videon från testningen av landningen inte mycket. (Det kommer rökpuffar innan man klipper videon.)

Sky Crane Full Motion Drop Test
“major test”, “very large milestone”
Videos from testing only show extremely simple procedures in the lab. Like the Sky Crane Full Motion Drop Test. That is the most complex test shown of the landing system! It was considered the major test and all staff was called in. But it is not enough to risk billions, sending the rover to Mars.

They made many videos of Curiosity simple testing, but [this]…(yt) is the only of the Sky Crane. It autonomously compare pictures from the orbiter and fly around the 1000 kg (300 on Mars) rover to find flat ground before freezing in the air and hoisting down the rover. Perseverance will do the same. Testing never documented.
Chinese testing [videos]…(yt) equally unimpressive. What is the smoke? Doesn’t it look more like Chinese fireworks than rocket engines?
OK I know you will send me to the tin foil shop, but I doubt those projects.
