The economic imperative of Asteroid Wars

This sudden push for asteroid defenses seems a little out of left field:
Asteroids could wipe out humanity unless more effort is made to track and destroy them, a leading body of scientists and astronauts has warned. Lord Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal, Brian Cox, and Richard Dawkins are among more than 100 experts calling for the creation of a huge asteroid detection system to prevent a doomsday scenario.

At an event at London’s science museum on Wednesday night, Lord Rees read out a declaration resolving to “solve humanity’s greatest challenges to safeguard our families and quality of life on Earth in the future.”
The dire threat of asteroids producing an urgent need for space-based defense systems. Now, where have I heard something like that before? As it happens, in the testimony of a woman who was an associate of Werner von Braun back in the 1970s, which dates back 14 years.
He said the strategy that was being used to educate the public and decision makers was to use scare tactics. That was how we identify an enemy. The strategy that Werner Von Braun taught me was that first the Russians are going to be considered the enemy. In fact, in 1974, they were the enemy, the identified enemy. We were told that they had “killer satellites”. We were told that they were coming to get us and control us—that they were the “Commies”.

Then terrorists would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot about terrorism. Then we were going to identify third-world country “crazies”. We now call them Nations of Concern. But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we would build space-based weapons.

The next enemy was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time he said it, “Asteroids—against asteroids, we are going to build space-based weapons.”

And the funniest one of all was what he called aliens, extraterrestrials. That would be the final scare. And over and over during the four years that I knew him and was giving speeches for him, he would bring up that last card: “And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens, and all of it is a lie.”

I think I was too naïve at that time to know the seriousness of the nature of the spin that was being put on the system. And now, the pieces are starting to fall into place. We are building a space-based weapons system on a premise that is a lie, a spin. Wernher Von Braun was trying to hint that to me back in the early 70's and right up until the moment when he died in 1977.
Of course, since we know the military-industrial complex is going to manufacture wars in order to keep its system of income distribution running smoothly, I would think it is eminently desirable for the wars to be waged against space rocks and entirely imaginary. It makes for an interesting investment plan, anyhow.

And is there not an even darker possibility? What if the whistleblower who is warning about these manufactured wars is actually an agent for the aliens who wants to see Earth disarmed? Wheels within wheels, my friends. Wheels within wheels.

Anyhow, it's nice to see that the AGW/CC alarmists have a new toy with which to play.

The mil Industrial complex doesn't need wars to make profits. They do just fine in preparring for wars that never come. Stuff wears out and breaks in peace-time training and needs constant replacement. Training for war uses more ammunition than going to war. (at least that has been true in the past 12 years).

The mil-industrialists know this.

I recall a story by Philip K Dick called Radio Free Albemuth. Same scenario. Are the Fascist governments protecting us from a parasitic alien invasion or are the aliens helping to free us from tyrannical governments? I think there was even a missile attack on the alien satellite.

The military-industrial complex? The one that you need to worry about sucking the life out of everything is the medical-industrial complex. They will heal us into bondage. Actually, it already has. As to the prior, I don't care what reason is given, as long as the contracts are correct and the weapons built. Just ensure those who win the contracts do so on the square. Weapons, of many sorts, will be needed. For good and ill, both, while not desired, are required.

Besides, while a military does have to crawl on it's belly, technological advances crawl through the dictates of the military. History, in a word, is war. The past, present, and future, align with it. It isn't just war that the military wages. It wages the future. Yeah, something like that.

If you know one thing about the dark son, you will know he comes as, and successfully, a peacemaker. He brings peace until he just about destroys the world. Disarm at your leisure, personally, socially, as an ideal for your ideal government. Cold, dead, hands, for my part.

Yeah, my understanding from some reading a few years ago is that there's nothing we could do with current technology or anything that's on the drawing board. Everything's moving pretty fast out there. By the time we see one coming and calculate that it's going to impact Earth, then launch a ship on a trajectory to meet it, by the time it gets there, it'll already be too late to nudge it off course enough with nuclear rockets (assuming we could get the environmentalists to let us use them) or whatever.

That's not to say we shouldn't be trying to come up with something, but it's pretty much science fiction at this point.

Anonymous Azimus December 04, 2014 9:23 AM  

Nukes won't work. I propose sending out a squadron of small, laser-equipped spaceships in pre-selected sectors within the asteroid belts to literally blast the asteroids from big, slow moving ones into small, fast moving ones, into dust. I see this going particularly well, especially if the pilots refrain from using the thrusters and going off the screen - err I mean sector. Once you start moving all hell breaks loose and you can't fire fast enough.

The usefulness of manufacturing threats to mankind is not only a tool of the military industrial complex, but is also a tool of the NWO/one worlder types. If you think about it, all of the big scares of the past decade or so are sold as threats to mankind, not just a single nation. Examples include Ebola, AGW, asteroids, possibly even nuclear arms proliferation. Aliens are the logical next choice. How else would they gather together the armies of the world in united opposition to God, as foretold in the bible?

Anonymous Cail Corishev December 04, 2014 10:09 AM  

All you have to do is give it a little nudge so it misses the Earth. The farther out you detect it, the easier this is to do.

The problem is that the size of the nudge and the distance away you have to start are both numbers that can be calculated, and neither is "little" if you're talking about calamity-causing asteroids. Robert Zubrin runs some numbers in Entering Space and determines that to shift a typical 1-km-diameter stone asteroid out of a collision course with Earth by "nudging" it with a 10-megaton H-bomb, we'd need to do it 145 years prior to collision. If we send a nuclear powered catapult capable of tearing chunks out of the thing and throwing them sideways to push the asteroid the other way (equal and opposite reaction, remember), we could get the lead-time down to 1.6 years. If the asteroid has any ice, we could burn the hydrogen in a nuclear rocket and increase the force significantly, bringing the time down further.

Not that we have the ability to do anything like that, but at least it seems like something we could aspire to. He wrote that in 1999, so you'd think maybe we've advanced since then, except that NASA says we can no longer do things we did in 1969, so who knows.

Or, the classic Heinlein The Moon is a harsh mistress.

If you are coming to Earth anyway, just attach or carry some big rocks on your ships. Release them at the right moment; they have your built up speed. You then adjust your ships course to go into orbit, wait out the impacts, then land and start parceling out the real estate. Or, eat the barbecued humans. Or both. Salt is optional.

I say we build a Dyson sphere. The Dyson sphere is my favorite speculative science idea.

Think of it, we deploy a vast army of sensor satellites to orbit the sun out past Neptune, forming an immense ring of satellites, or maybe even an immense sphere. Not only do the satellites track every pebble, they also absorb a far greater proportion of the Sun's radiation than we can here on earth. With all of them beaming their surplus solar power to Earth via microwaves, we'd have more useful energy than we've ever had.

The Military-Industrial Complex gets to build the satellites, the government gets their publicity, and the satellites are too small and two far out to endanger the population of Earth. It's the perfect plan; maybe a little too long term...

This is just another iteration of environmental-ism, which is to say Talmudic parasitism:

...the parasitic animal is, like all other living things, intimately related throughout its existence to its environment. The fact that environment is, for a part or whole of its life, the surface or interior of another animal, does not absolve the parasitologist from the biologist’s practice of considering animal and environment together as a whole. A second objective is the demonstration that some species of parasitic animals are among the most powerful enemies of man and his civilization.”

The parasites concern with his environment sheds light upon one of the most important intellectual developments of modern man, the Enlightenment, that revolutionary force which has spearheaded the growing control of the parasite over the host. The pre-Enlightenment centuries of human thought considered man’s environment as a secondary consideration, because of faith in powers of the individual, and the belief that he individual could triumph over his environment. After the sudden importance given to such French intellectuals as Jean Jacques Rousseau, man was no longer considered as important as his environment. All at once, our leading thinkers decided that environment was the most important thing in life. And indeed it is, to the parasite, whose environment is the host which feeds him.

But to the host, who is making his own way in life, environment is not the primary factor in his development. But to the parasite, environment is everything. All Socialist thinkers, and the various schools of sociological thought which have crept out of this development, place primary importance upon man’s environment, rather than upon his powers to use that environment and to create a life for himself, as he achieves his life’s goals.

When we understand the theory of the parasite, we are able to understand, FOR THE FIRST TIME, the entire modern Socialist school of thought, because we can recognize it for what it is, the environmental psychology which the parasite has developed around his own life cycle. As such, it negates all of the host’s thought, goals and culture."


Environmentalism, feminism, socialism, communism, corporatism, fascism, it's all Talmudic Judaism, which is codified parasitism under the mask of religion.

Consider:

Since the parasite is smaller and weaker than the host, he must control it principally by guile. And because he is out-numbered, he must depend upon active agents among the gentiles. Once he has destroyed the host people’s native leadership, he creates a new ruling class, a group recruited from the weakest and the most depraved of the gentiles. This class becomes known as “the new class,” and it is composed of the government officials, the educators, the judges and lawyers, and the religious leaders. This “new class” is known to the Jew as his shabez goi, or his “Sabbath gentile cattle.”

The creation of the shabez goi class provides that the Jewish religion is basically a ritualization of the parasite’s techniques for controlling the host. A key tenet of the Jewish religion is that he must not perform the slightest task on his Sabbath. He cannot begin his religious service until the candles are lit, but his religion forbids him to light the candles, because this would be work. He must find a gentile to light the candle for him. This gentile is called a “shabez goi.” Thus, the Jewish religion cannot be enacted until the Jew finds a gentile to do his work for him.

Wouldn't pushing asteroids off course count as "universe change" and be opposed by the same crowd that opposed climate change?

Start pushing the aliens narrative so that when hundreds of thousands of Christians suddenly disappear there is a very plausible reason.

It is part of the liberal narrative that we are so important that the world must be preserved just as it was when we first arrived (minus any pesky things that might bother us like wolves in Manhattan or bears in London). The world must never change from when we first noticed it.

1) this is OT No, it's not. Promoting the fear of Asteroids to promote economic socialism is just another facet of fear mongering environmentalism, like global warming. As Mullins points out, it is the parasite that is overly concerned with environmentalism.

3) "Shabez Goi" appears to be a term invented by Eustace Mullins

That book was written in the early 1980's. It's just a matter of trying to accurately spell the pronunciation of the Yiddish term more commonly known now as "Shabbos Goy."

This is a sideways attempt to get more funding for space war without scaring the populace silly. . Its not entirely unjustified between Chinese ground based lasers and Russian kill-sats the US is amazingly vulnerable. Our military can hit hard at least for the next few decades but without GPS we are screwed. I am told and I don't know its true that a great many commercial vehicles like semis shipping food for example, won't even run without working GPS.

In theory it might be possible to use older military vehicles but every truck used to ship food at home and every troop quelling riots isn't shipping ammo at the front.

Also a our force projection is highly dependent on GPS. No GPS and we lose a lot of firepower, very possibly enough for either or both powers to win. I don't even know how many nukes still use non satellite based navigation
either. or how reliable the crew of the silo based ones, which IIRC use rather old school guidance, are. Not very from what I read so they might not really work in a crisis.

And trust me if a war comes our foes won't fight toe to toe with us, They'd lose and they know it and an attack on GPS or hacking the gird or a host of other things will happens 1st to level the playing field

If we aren't careful we'll end up like the Spartans when people figured out they didn't have to press pikes with them and could maneuver around greatly reducing the Hoplite's power

A more cheery option is it could also be the space buffs trying to gin up support for more spending though at least , unlike with AGW ,there is lot of solid evidence for meteor hits. Its not a bad idea but well it something 1964 America could do, not 2014 America.

The great thing about an imminent asteroid impact as a cover story, the average joe doesn't have the means to call bullshit on it, and the professional sky watchers can only give you probabilities of impact, not certainies.

The second great thing about it, after they "deflect" or "destroy" the object they can claim to have "saved" the planet and reap the political rewards whether they did something or merely went through the motions.

The third thing is that they can do it all again any time they need a distraction because we're not going to run out of asteroids or comets any time soon.

AGW and the resultant warmer, thinner air makes the atmosphere thinner, increasing the devastation that will be wrought by the asteroid strikes.

Are we considering the possible threat that the guy deflecting the asteroid might be wearing an offensive shirt?

If we allow that to happen, then clearly we don't deserve survival anyway.

Wouldn't blowing up an asteroid with a nuke cause millions of highly radioactive asteroid chunks to pepper 1/3 of the earth instead of one large rock hitting the earth?

Yes. Even if we could blast one into pieces, it wouldn't reduce the total damage much, even ignoring the radioactivity. Also, the smaller ones that could feasibly be blown up with current nukes (say, 100 meters diameter or so) are too small to see very far off. There are thousands of bigger ones in the 10-100 km range that no bomb would make a dent in.

That's why the only even mildly serious notion is to change its trajectory with some sort of kinetic force.

Traditionally, the lady of the house lights the Shabbas candles before the sun goes down. Only in the absence of a woman in the household would the candles be lit by a man and never by the Shabbas goy.

Hilariously, wikipedia tells me that Colin Powell, Mario Cuomo, Martin Scorsese, Floyd B. Olson, and the adolescent Elvis Presley were all Shabbas goys in their youth, helping out their local jewish neighbors. Conspiracy!?!?!!?!1!

The threat is overblown. Earth exists inside Jupiter's gravity well. Most objects get sucked into Jupiter anyway. Plus, there is the moon itself.

Blogger rycamor December 04, 2014 9:40 PM  

@map, the whole concept of an extremely rarely-occurring but completely devastating threat is that it still CAN happen. We've got plenty of evidence on our planet that huge asteroids have hit in the past. So it's a 1/million year chance instead of a 1/100,000 year chance or whatever. Point is it still CAN happen, and all the statistics in the world will be cold comfort if it does. If there is something humanity can do about it, I would say it's worth looking into. Especially if it can be done at lower cost than, say, the Gulf War.

I'm not saying it is economically feasible at this point or that the scientists quoted in the article are being honest in regard to this. That is something I don't know, but I don't think the concept itself is something to laugh at.

Right map, the Arizona meteor crater was really just a UFO landing base. Or, was it caused by some sort of anomalous vortex erosion? No, I've got it--swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket... and refracted the light from Venus.

Massive solar activity has about a 10,000 to 13,000 year cycle. We can predict fairly easily what magnetic storms and increased atmospheric ionization would do to all our non-hardened electronics and computerized control systems.

I guess ol' 'Paperclip' von Braun missed that one.

By chunks of asteroid I was meaning the 20m+ diameter kind. Blowing up an asteroid 1000m+ in diameter would create a couple thousand chunks like the one that hit Russia last year plus smaller debris. The explosion would cause a good portion of the debris field to alter course and miss Earth, of course, but the same explosion would cause a widely dispersed debris field to pepper the globe (in the impact zone) with radioactive material. I am not certain how radiation works in space - but I would much of the radiation from the explosion would be absorbed into the rock. The atmosphere would disperse most of the dangerous kinetic energy of this debris bombardment (depending on angle of descent), but I don't know about the radiation.
