Space Florida to manage nano-sat challenge

Space Florida will manage a $2 million competition intended to advance technologies and markets for tiny satellites, NASA announced today.

To win the prize, participants in the Nano-Satellite Launch Challenge must launch a satellite weighing at least 2.2 pounds into Earth orbit twice within a week.

A first launch attempt is expected next summer.

A new nonprofit called the Space Florida Small Satellite Research Center will be set up to manage the competition, one of 22 Centennial Challenges funded by NASA since 2005.

Space Florida's board of directors is expected to approve the agency's creation of the nonprofit and management of the competition at a 2:30 p.m. meeting Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale.

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?
