We Are Being Toyed With
By Barry Chamish
February 10, 2003
YESTERDAY, I was sent
a photo of what was purported to be the electric charge that struck Columbia.
After seeing the weird blue looped streak I was all prepared to say,
"Case closed. We know what damaged the craft's left wing and caused
the crash seven minutes later. Now I can concentrate on my Israeli reports
like I was born to do."
I was all ready to prepare
a jpg of the streak and send it out. But then I noticed there were clouds,
lots of them, above the supposed Columbia: at 212000 feet, a sky full
of clouds. This picture was a hoax. That led me to the next step in logical
thinking: this is all too easy. An electric discharge is photographed
bolting into Columbus. Proof quickly arrives that electric storms occur
in the high atmosphere. Mystery solved. Let's bury the astronauts and
Such an approach is a good
idea if you're covering up facts, considering more and more influential
people want to know if the blue light was caused by a Star Wars Weapon:
>>> Dallas Congressman, Pete
Sessions(R-Dallas), and son for former
FBI Director Judge William Sessions, told KLIF-AM talk radio, on Saturday
morning, that these electrical flashes are very disturbing. He speculated
that America's enemies, citing China, had developed SDI weapons. (Was
this an assassination contracted by Iraq to the ChiComms?)
>>> Congressman Pete Sessions, Republican-Northwest Dallas,
and son of former FBI Director William Sessions (of San Antonio), has
called for an investigation of the mysterious flashes of light seen just
before the Columbia accident.
PREVENT such calls for a real investigation, the strategy is; let us
quickly prepare data that will lead all to one inescapable conclusion; a
storm in an unknown part of the high atmosphere released a bolt of lightning
which damaged the Shuttle's left wing and caused it to break up and crash.
Or, as we shall conjecture shortly, let's have it prepared before the disaster:
Here are some reports from Feb.5-7:
Air Force tracking camera in New Mexico that photographed the final
minute of flight by the space shuttle Columbia showed "heavy structural
damage on the left wing near the fuselage," a source familiar with
the investigation of the disaster told NBC News on Friday.
>>> "Cosmic bolt" probed in shuttle disaster
poring over 'infrasonic' sound waves http://www.sfgate.com
Federal scientists are looking for evidence that a bolt of electricity
in the upper atmosphere might have doomed the space shuttle Columbia as
it streaked over California, The Chronicle has learned. Investigators
are combing records from a network of ultra-sensitive instruments that
might have detected a faint thunderclap in the upper atmosphere at the
same time a photograph taken by a San Francisco astronomer appears to
show a purplish bolt of lightning striking the shuttle. Should the photo
turn out to be an authentic image of an electrical event on Columbia,
it would not only change the focus of the crash investigation, but it
could open a door on a new realm of science. "We're working hard
on the data set. We have an obligation," said Alfred Bedard, a scientist
at the federal Environmental Technology Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. He
said the lab was providing the data to NASA but that it was too early
to draw any conclusions from the sounds of the shuttle re-entry. The lab
has been listening to the sounds of ghostly electromagnetic phenomena
in the upper atmosphere, dubbed sprites, blue jets and elves. For some
time, scientists have speculated on whether these events could endanger
airliners or returning spacecraft.
A study conducted 10 years ago for NASA found that there is a 1-in-100
chance that a space shuttle could fly through a sprite, although it concluded
that the consequences of such an event were unclear. And in 1989, an upper-
atmospheric electrical strike "shot down" a high-altitude NASA
balloon 129,000 feet over Dallas.
>>> From USA Today:
Nothing but a rocket can fly at its upper limit of 53 miles. The
"ignorosphere" encompasses the mesosphere and upper stratosphere.
Invisible clouds, strange electrical flashes called red sprites and blue
lightning bolts that strike upward from the tops of clouds inhabit the
thin air. This is the place where falling stars are made. The "ignorosphere"
earns its nickname from the fact that you can't get there from here without
a rocket. It is too high for weather balloons and too low for satellites
to dip down to gather information. Much of what is known about the upper
atmosphere comes from measurements collected during more than 100 re-entries
by space shuttles since the first launch of the Columbia in 1981.
What is perhaps least known about the mesosphere is how to fly in it.
This may be a missing links in the Columbia mystery. Scientists say that
one of the big unknowns is the behavior of airflow over the shuttle as
it streaks downward into the thinnest of thin air at speeds of 17,000
to 14,000 miles per hour. Xiaolin Zhong, professor of mechanical and aerospace
engineering at UCLA is studying the airflow problem for the Air Force
Office of Scientific Research.
Space shuttles can experience unpredictable airflow problems on the wings
for a variety of reasons: the wrong trajectory, unknown atmospheric conditions
or any roughness on the shuttle's surface. These problems are known to
cause intense heating, which is a focus of NASA's investigation. Understanding
these airflow problems is one of the top priorities of the Air Force,
which is planning to build its own space plane and upper atmosphere aircraft.
"Part of my work is on disturbances" in airflow that can potentially
burn up a shuttle, says Zhong. "This is still more art than science."
Zhong says this problem was one of four major reasons cited a decade ago
for canceling the National Aerospace Plane, which was supposed to replace
As NASA proceeds with its investigation, scientists will have to ponder
the many mysteries of the "ignorosphere." A report by NASA scientists
released last fall describes concerns about the impact of upper atmospheric
phenomenon on the space shuttle:
Transparent clouds, called "noctilucent" clouds, float 50 miles
above Earth and are visible only at twilight. These silvery cirrus clouds
form at the edges of much larger clouds. Models of shuttle impacts with
them "vary from trivial to catastrophic" according to the report,
which says "the most severe effect of entry through a noctilucent
cloud would probably be the erosion of the thermal protection system during
the most critical heating region." That critical heating region is
where Columbia was destroyed. The agency plans its re-entry paths to avoid
regions thought prone to these clouds.
Red sprites are electrical discharges in the upper atmosphere. They occur
over thunderclouds and have been considered to pose less than a one in
100 risk to the shuttle. Some rainstorm clouds did appear over Northern
California during re-entry last Saturday but no lightning was reported
on the ground, says atmospheric scientist Walter Lyons, of FMA Research
Inc. in Fort Collins, Colo.
Density shears are patches of thicker-than-expected air that can increase
the shuttle's roll and pull on one wing. On a Columbia mission in 1992
and an Endeavor mission in 1993, hitting such patches forced them to use
up its fuel for the thrusters that help keep it on course during re-entry.
Blue jets are upward lightning strikes. In 1998, Lyons and a team of scientists
reported one that was sparked by a meteor. "The safety implications
are just a gaping hole in our knowledge," he says. As the space shuttle
streaks through the upper atmosphere, it leaves a wake in the air just
as a boat leaves a wake behind it in the water. The shuttle's wake becomes
electrified. Lyons says some scientists are speculating that its electrified
wake acted as an antenna and drew a blue jet to the Columbia.
NASA and the Air Force have been losing interest in studying the uppermost
atmosphere. Meanwhile, Lyons says scientists are still discovering unexplained
phenomenon. "We're nickel-and-diming to do our research," he
says. "And there is all sorts of electrical foolishness going on
up there that we still don't know anything about."
SO WHAT is it about that last
report that is so bothersome? It's when NASA began its investigation; less
than two months before Columbia took off. This is known as establishing
The next reporter implies that NASA's plan to shut down the Shuttle program
and its release of the ignorosphere report just prior to the loss of the
Columbia was not accidental:

Sound like breaking news? Well, it is at least two months old. ECTV
reported on this event in late November 2002. Could this be a coincidence?
I sure hope so, because if it is not, it was at the coast of seven innocent
people who died, and countless others who have been betrayed.

NASA Looking To Shut Down Space Station & Shuttle
02/05/03 by Mitch Battros (ECTV)
This whole incident is beginning to stink. I found it very interesting how
many times Sean O'Keefe, head administrator of Nasa stated "it is import
for us [NASA] to keep the trust of the American people". Now I am not
quite sure who he is trying to convince, the public, or the vast Nasa staff,
contractors and consultants. Once again, only time will tell.
Here is the first ECTV article posted which has the tale tell signs of what
was to happen to the Space Station and the Shuttle missions:
November 25th 2002:
"The not so good news; is the same geomagnetic storm that
produces beautiful lights in the sky, can also blow out power grids and
harm satellites. Not to mention the space station and space shuttle. I
wonder if this was behind the reasoning for delaying the space shuttle
for two weeks before its blast off Friday night.
I certainly welcome NASA employees to share anything you may have heard.
I promise to keep your name confidential, but I will share your information,
provided it can be verified, with over 14 million of my closest friends."

"btw, I am still looking for that one Nasa official to come forward
and tell us "what's really going on with the space shuttle and space
station". Remember, it is your duty to keep the public informed.
Step up, to the call of duty and help your neighbor."

"NASA has completed an initial contingency study of how to evacuate
the International Space Station and leave it without a permanent astronaut
crew for up to a year. The interruption of permanent occupancy of the
space outpost may be forced by Russia's failure to finance the regular
visits of manned Soyuz space taxis and unmanned Progress cargo ships.

And now as of today, a new article just came out from Stanford University.
"It is time to rethink the manned space program. Despite the Columbia
shuttle disaster on Saturday, which took the lives of seven astronauts,
NASA officials have called for the shuttle program to continue. The cry,
``Let`s go on to Mars,`` has even been heard from some quarters in NASA."
