Sweden’s Ghost Rockets

The Roswell UFO crash of July, 1947 is one of the most publicized UFO events in American pop culture. In fact, the little town of Roswell has exploited this event to a point that it has become a cottage industry for many of its residents. Nearly every storefront window is decorated with green alien blow-up dolls and cardboard flying saucers. It seems more of a joke than a page from New Mexico’s history.

Sweden hasn’t turned their UFO sightings into a joke, but it has been turned into a documentary. Most Americans have never heard of the Ghost Rockets of Sweden. But this series of events began about seventeen months prior to the Roswell event and it is, by far, a bigger story than the Roswell crash. One big reason is that is wasn’t just a single event. In fact, it even continues to this day.

The first reports of a sighting of something unusual occured on February 26, 1946. Witnesses claimed they saw a missile-shaped craft crashing into a lake. Over the next few months, similar reports were received from all over Sweden at different lakes. The most remarkable sightings occurred on July 19, 1946 (almost exactly one year before the Roswell incident). On that day, four Ghost Rockets crashed into four different lakes, all within the span of four hours.

Sketch of a Ghost Rocket

A witness’ sketch of a Ghost Rocket. The handwritten notes, when translated, describe the rocket as having a green stripe on the side and a heat wave exhaust pattern at the rear.

Initially, these sightings were assumed to be a meteor shower. But when some witnesses described a small, metallic aircraft it was then assumed that the Russians were testing missiles. To prove this theory, the Swedish military searched an area where some of the sightings took place. Their investigation centered on lake Kölmjärv, conducting an underwater search for three weeks. They did discover fresh impact craters on the lake bed and damage to some aquatic plants. It definitely appeared as though something crashed into the lake, however no craft was ever recovered.

The United States and British military forces attempted to offer Sweden additional manpower and technology to help in the investigation. But, the world was still in the throes of the second world war and Sweden’s Prime Minister, Per Albin Hansson, feared that granting US and British troops entry into their country would risk Sweden’s “neutral” status, and enrage Stalin and Hitler, causing a bigger problem than a few unidentified falling objects crashing into lakes.

Now, nearly seventy years later, Ghost Rocket activity is still being witnessed. The stories are familiar — missile-like craft crashing into Sweden’s lakes or landing on the surface of a lake and slowly sinking beneath the surface. According to these new witness reports, the UFOs vary in size. Some are described as having wings, others appear to be wingless. But, they all seem to be too small to carry a human-sized pilot.

The Ghost Rockets documentary will cover the history of this weird chain of events, including the investigations. It has already been shown to limited audiences in some Swedish theaters. It will finally make its TV debut on Swedish television this coming November.

What are they? Where do they come from? And why are they choosing Sweden as their target? These are the questions everyone asks. Unfortunately, the Ghost Rockets documentary will still leave that up to your imagination.

One Man’s Dream Of A Far-Side Village

Professor Johann-Dietrich Woerner was recently appointed to the position of Director General of the European Space Agency (ESA) earlier this week. As the former Chair of the German Space Agency he comes well-equipped to manage the €4.4 billion annual budget of the ESA.

He will be overseeing various projects, such as, satellites used for observation, weather, communication and navigation, as well as the European astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS). There are also planned missions to Mars, Mercury and Jupiter.

But, his planned mission to the Moon could be the most ambitious of them all. The Moon? Hasn’t that been done? Well, not the way he envisions it.

When everyone else is talking about Mars, Professor Woerner is talking about the Moon. He has some very good arguments in his favor.

He wants to establish a base on the far side of the moon which would include a telescope that would be able to view further out into space than any other telescope that has been developed to date.

“The far side of the Moon is very interesting because we could have telescopes looking deep into the Universe, we could do lunar science on the Moon and the international aspect is very special,” he explains. “The Americans are looking to go to Mars very soon – and I don’t see how we can do that – before going to Mars we should test what we could do on Mars on the Moon.”

He is proposing, not just a base, but an actual village on the moon. This endeavor will be just as daring and difficult as a base on Mars. But the big advantage to populating the moon with scientists, astronomers, geologists, and such, instead of Mars, is the distance.

If there is an emergency that requires help from Earth, it is only a four day trip to the moon. A trip to Mars is six months.

What we learn on the Moon, about building workable shelters, growing food, dealing with health issues, and facing a plethora of unexpected problems would be applicable to what we would face on Mars.

He says, “A Moon village shouldn’t just mean some houses, a church and a town hall,” says Woerner. “This Moon village should mean partners from all over the world contributing to this community with robotic and astronaut missions and support communication satellites.”

For the moment, the Moon village is only an idea. No one is committing any funds. There are no plans on the drawing board. But there is new interest in the Moon, especially in Europe.
So, Woerner is pushing the idea for serious discussion. If anyone can get that discussion started it will be him. He is one of the world’s most powerful and respected space figures.

A Former Believer Defects

I was a child of the sixties. This was a time when TV was broadcast in black and white. It was a time when we trusted our government and respected men like Walter Cronkite, Chet Huntley, and David Brinkley to give us the news each night.

When the president made an important speech, all three TV channels would interrupt regularly scheduled programming and broadcast the speech. The President’s picture would appear above the fold, on page 1 of every newspaper the next morning.

So, in 1961, when President Kennedy said, “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth,” the nation saw and heard that speech on TV, or read about it the next day in the newspaper.

My Dad has always been a huge fan of the NASA programs, especially the Apollo missions. So it was natural that our entire family was glued to the only TV in the house, when eight years later, regularly scheduled programming was interrupted again for another speech.

But this time it wasn’t a president speaking on the White House lawn. No, this speech was given by an astronaut, standing on the surface of the moon. “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”

America had landed on the moon! It was a bittersweet accomplishment. President Kennedy did not live to see his goal come to fruition, but WE, had won the space race!

Or had we?

For decades I have been annoyed by those who said we didn’t really go to the moon. In my opinion these people were nut jobs and wore tin foil hats. I never took them seriously. However, as the  years ticked by I softened my opinion of them and began to listen to their arguments. This year, I’ve considered getting one of those tinfoil hats.

Why, after so many years, am I beginning to doubt that we ever went to the moon? The debunkers analyze the pictures that the astronauts supposedly took on the moon. They discuss things like shadows pointing in different directions as if there were two light sources instead of one (the sun). They also claim that using certain tools they can prove that the hills in the background were much closer than they should have been and were probably a backdrop.

In response to these photography anomalies, I have always countered with agreement that it is possible that these photos were taken on Earth. They could have been taken during practice drills held in the desert. And of course they would have to practice taking photographs. These practice photographs could have been substituted for the real thing in the likely event that the camera or film itself was damaged during the trip. So, it wasn’t the debunkers that finally won me over. I’m a really hard sell.

I recently watched a NASA produced video, narrated by Kelly Smith, a NASA engineer, discussing a future manned mission to Mars, I tuned in to learn about the challenges this mission faced. The moon was not on my mind at all, but what he said was very pertinent to the Apollo missions. And what he revealed, hit me square between the eyes.

According to Kelly, one of the biggest hurdles for a Mars mission, is not associated with Mars at all, but Earth. It’s an aspect of our own planet that is keeping us from taking that trip to Mars. Kelly didn’t say that it would have also prevented us from going to the Moon, but it surely would have. And that was when I realized the trips to the moon were all faked.

You see, there are these inconvenient barriers known as the Van Allen Radiation Belts. Scientists are trying to figure out how they will safely send astronauts through this layer of electromagnetic radiation that surrounds our planet. The amount of lead shielding needed to protect humans and machines would make the rocket too heavy to leave the launch pad

So, how did we do it in the 1960’s? Is the Van Allen Belt a new phenomena? No, its been there all along as far as we know. It was discovered several years before the first Apollo Mission. It get’s its name from James Van Allen, the American physicist who discovered this radiation barrier in 1958, 11 years before we were convinced that our astronauts first stepped on the moon.

Why is the Van Allen Belt such a problem? As, NASA engineer, Kelly Smith states in the video, The level of radiation in the Van Allen Belts are deadly to humans and will cause havoc with the instrumentation on board any spaceship.

NASA is looking for a solution, and will eventually figure it out, but this admission can only mean that no astronaut has ever traveled through the Van Allen Belts, otherwise they would already have a solution to this problem. Or there be no concern, since we have proof that it was not harmful to humans— most of the Apollo astronauts lived long and productive lives. I’m sorry, but if NASA is concerned about the Van Allen Belts it means no manned spaceship went to the moon. And it may be that even the unmanned trips to the moon and Mars never happened either.

This reality hits me to my core, but I now feel confident in saying that no human has ever walked on the moon. Everything was faked and staged. I’m almost ready to say that the unmanned missions were faked, too. We have been spoon fed Hollywood sound stage productions.  All the astronauts that we are to believe flew to the moon couldn’t get there and back without taking two trips through the deadly Van Allen Belts. And yet most of them lived to a ripe old age. Someone is lying and it’s not  Kelly Smith, the NASA scientist in the video that you can watch for yourself, below

This video is seven minutes long and very informative, but you can skip to the 3:00 minute mark to hear just the part about the Van Allen Belts

We should all be angry about this. NASA spent over 100 Billion dollars of taxpayers’ money to fake the Apollo missions alone. It angers and saddens me to have to say that. But there is no other explanation that I can find.

Catching a Wave On The Moon

Imagine you have a telescope and you decide to take some video of the moon. You connect your digital camera to the telescope and start videotaping. You get some great footage and later review it.

As you review it you notice something that shouldn’t be there. At first it appears to be an abberration of the digital camera, and you consider cutting that part of the footage out of the video clip.

But the little voice in your head tells you to reconsider that idea. You view the footage again and it dawns on you. That is not a camera glitch. This is real. And this is going to rock the world.

This is not fiction, this actually happened to an amateur astronomer.  But,what did he see in the video that shocked him and changed his ideas of the nature of the moon?

His discovery was an out-of-place wave moving across the face of the moon. At first, the amateur astronomer, known anonymously, as Crrow777 on YouTube, thought it was a camera glitch but this explanation had to be thrown out because of the nature of the wave and the fact that he moved the camera at just that moment and the wave does not follow the movement of the camera. This accidentally captured phenomena is now making big waves on YouTube and on alternative radio programs.

Crrow777 carefully inspected the wave and ruled out everything except the fact that it does exist and it is local to the moon. The first time you see the video of this wave you might feel compelled to reject it as a hoax or some misidentification of something else. Give it some time to sink in.

This wave behaves like a very sophisticated holographic-like projection refreshing itself. But, it’s probably a technology far more advanced than any hologram. Whatever it is, it is likely hiding something on the surface of the moon. Otherwise, what would be its purpose?

Not suprisingly, when he shows his video to professional astronomers he is called a kook, fraud, and more.

However, Crrow777 is not the only one who has captured what he has dubbed the ‘lunar wave’. There are other amateur astronomers around the world who are now videotaping the lunar wave. They have even coordinated some of their taping sessions in an attempt to get simultaneous captures from different locations across the globe for comparison.

But, by far, the first known capture of this wave has been the best to date. If you are ready to have your world rocked, take a look at the video clip that started it all, The Lunar Wave. This version includes a very clear and informative narration by Crrow777, himself.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory May Have Just Stumbled Upon Warp Drive

Mr. Sulu, take her to warp two. — Captain Kirk

Those of us who grew up watching Star Trek dreamed of a future when humans would explore strange new worlds; seek out new life and new civilizations; and boldly go where no man has gone before.

But, until very recently, that future seemed out of reach, or at least, not in our lifetimes. According to the Star Trek back-story the Warp drive would be invented by Zephram Cochrane in the year 2063. Good try, Star Trek writers, but you might be off the mark by almost 50 years. Because NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory may have just taken the first important step toward the development of the warp drive.

NASA scientists have been working on a project called EmDrive. During a recent test they shot laser beams through the EmDrive’s resonance chamber and took measurements. The readings from that test caught the scientists by complete surprise. The indication is that the EmDrive’s resonance chamber sent these laser beams faster than light speed. This, my friend, is the essence of warp speed.

The word spread fast around NASA. Scientists are buzzing about the discovery on a NASA discussion board where they discuss current projects. Therefore, the announcement that laser beams may have breached the speed of light traveled almost that fast to the engineering community.

True to the nature of engineers and scientists, they admit more study is needed. They want to perform the same test in a vacuum to rule out the possible false reading due to atmospheric heating. But they are still scratching their heads and wearing silly grins on their faces.

One commentor in the forum wrote, “This signature on the EmDrive looks just like what a warp bubble looks like. And the math behind the warp bubble apparently matches the interference pattern found in the EmDrive. Seems to have been an accidental connection. They were wondering where this ‘thrust’ might be coming from. One scientist proposed that maybe it’s a warp of the spacetime foam, which is causing the thrust.”

In a 1994 paper, Physicist Miguel Alcubierre, A Mexican Theoretical Physicist, proposed the concept of a warp bubble that would warp spacetime around an object. A space ship would be situated stationary inside the bubble. The bubble would squeeze spacetime in front of the ship, while expanding from behind. Since the ship is stationary within the bubble, space travelers would not feel any movement. The theory was never proven feasible until this recent EmDrive finding.

If the warp speed is achieved in the vacuum test, some on the NASA Spaceflight forums are even imaging the possibility of time travel. You could conceivably, take a trip to Alpha Centauri in 2 days, look out the back window and observe Earth as it was four years ago. Try to wrap your brain around that.

.

In the TV production, “How William Shatner Changed the World”  Miguel Alcubierre made a special appearance where his warp bubble theory was discussed. If interested, you can hear this theory at timestamp 1:07:00 in the video below.

The link below takes you to the NASA discussion board where the conversation gets interesting on April, 20, but as of May 21 there are now 203 pages devoted to this topic alone. This time it really is rocket science and its happening in our lifetime
