Russian Supply Ship Docks At Station

Flying 248 miles over northern China, a supply-filled Russian cargo carrier arrived at the International Space Station today after a three-day trip from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The Progress 45 spacecraft is the first to be launched since the Aug. 24 loss of an identical vehicle during a Soyuz U rocket failure.

The successful return to flight of the Soyuz rocket clears the way for the planned Nov. 13 launch of the next station crew: U.S. astronaut Dan Burbank and two cosmonauts -- Anatoly Ivinishin and Anton Shkaplerov. The three will launch on a Soyuz FG rocket similar to the Soyuz U that failed.

The Progress 45 craft arrived at the station with 2.9 tons of supplies, including 1,650 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen, 926 pounds of water and 3,100 pounds of other gear and research equipment.

The docking came on the 11th anniversary of the Nov. 2, 2000 arrival of the first station expedition crew, U.S. astronaut Bill Shepherd and two cosmonauts, Sergei Krikalev and Yuri Gidzenko. The station has been continuously staffed since then.

Total lies concerning man able to survive going to Mars. It would take a wall of water enveloping the spacecraft at least several meters thick, to protect the occupants from deadly cosmic rays. http://news.discovery.com/space/mission-to-mars-health-risks-110718.html

Not to mention that it is an ongoing HEALTH HAZARD to anyone going into outer space. Why are we subjecting human beings to this madness? Oh yes, the "conquering of space, the final frontier" brainwashing of the 'baby boomers'...who are now in charge.

Doesn't it appear that all of NASA's posts are so glamorous and seeming well-intentioned? Think again. They have an agenda to militarize space with their warmongering technology, at the expense of our atmospheric envelope and all life that depends upon our 'ocean of air'.

At NASA's environmental cleanup page,
http://www.ssc.nasa.gov/environmental/cleanup/clean.html, it says, "We take full responsibility for any problems caused by past practices and ensuring the protection of the environment and the health of the surrounding community."

That's all well and good, now what about the ongoing SOLID ROCKET FUEL program? Is this present technology ensuring the protection of the environment?

Here is the censored TRUTH of how NASA really salutes its veterans:

Float to space instead of rocketing there, and accomplish everything at a mere 25 miles altitude that was being done, 14X further, at 350 miles out.

Even the Space Station and Hubble Telescope would operate better at this altitude. Why? Because the highly toxic SOLID FUEL ROCKET BOOSTERS are left out of the equation.

Also, documentation of how Nazi turned into NASA, and still continues to wage war upon our environment.

What does HELEN CALDICOTT have to say about this ongoing insanity...endorsed by Obama?
