Connecting the Dots – Challenger Incident

by on Aug.14, 2009, under aliens

The January 28, 1986 “accident” involving the Space Shuttle Challenger was no accident.  The American space program was in a period of rapid growth.  It was developing capabilities that would give it an unprecedented presence in space and ability to monitor space around Earth for scientific purposes.  Such presence and monitoring was, sooner or later, likely to detect alien spacecraft arriving or departing Earth.

The decision was made in 1985 to halt the American space program.  Simply de-funding it would not be sufficient as the economic impact of the US space program is too great.  Too many business, individuals, and politicians depend on the money that the American taxpayer allocates to space exploration and space science.  The only viable option was to “engineer” an in-flight accident that destroyed one of the space shuttles.  It was believe that only a catastrophic system failure resulting in loss of life would create the political pressure that would paralyze NASA and suspend human space operations.  The planned “accident” need only kill one astronaut to be effective.

Operatives worked throughout the NASA procurement system to locate weaknesses in processes that would enable a defect to be introduced that would cause the desired in-flight failure.  Several were identified; only one has been made public in the nearly quarter century since the Challenger incident.  An O-ring on the solid rocket booster was tampered with to produce a weak spot that would enable hot gas to escape from the side of the SRB an penetrate the external fuel tank causing a total in-flight system failure.

During the investigation of the “accident” the Challenger Incident Board and top management at NASA were apprised of the situation with respect to alien activity on and around Earth.  All were instructed to 1) Remain forever silent on the true nature of the “accident”; 2) Report only the O-ring failure and suppress or destroy all evidence associated with backup catastrophic failures; 3)  Delay the return to flight of the space shuttles;  and 4) Impose cumbersome “safety” procedures to reduce the frequency of flights.

The reporting of the “accident” and NASA’s response to it have been effective in retarding the development of human space flight capabilities.

    [...] did, however, have the effect of slowing the US space program again in much the same way that the Challenger incident did.  This time the accident had the “happy” side-effect of encouraging [...]
