Space Fantasy #33: Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans In The Solar System'!

Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans in the Solar System' 

Bezos said the Apollo program was inspirational, helping to fuel his desire and passion to make a difference in space exploration.

"I have won this lottery," Bezos said. "It's a gigantic lottery, and it's called Amazon.com. And I'm using my lottery winnings to push us a little further into space."

Bezos said he is not in the camp of the "Plan B argument" for the colonization of space — that one day Earth is going to be destroyed or uninhabitable, so we better have another place to live.

"I hate that idea … I find it very unmotivating," Bezos said. "We have sent robotic probes now to every planet in this solar system, and believe me, this [Earth] is the best one."

While we should and will colonize space (via the harnessing of solar energy and asteroid resources), Bezos said, there's also a need to avoid stagnation here on Earth by putting controls on population or energy usage per capita. That's sure to be a boring world, he said, and not compatible with freedom or liberty.

Bezos' visionary scenario is being held back by a central issue, he said.

"Space travel is just too darn expensive. And we know why it's too expensive. It's because we throw the rockets away," Bezos explained. "We're never going on to do these grand things and to expand into the solar system as long as we throw this hardware away. We need to build reusable rockets, and that is what Blue Origin is dedicated to … taking my Amazon lottery winnings and dedicating to … it's a passion, but it's also important."

Back to the moon

Bezos also said at the gala that "it's time for America to go back to the moon, this time to stay."

"We should build a permanent settlement on one of the poles of the moon," he said. In that lunar locale, water in permanently shadowed regions, such as the bottoms of craters, can be accessed. And "peaks of eternal light" in polar regions — mountaintops or crater rims that are always bathed in sunlight — can provide solar power.

"We didn't know back in the '60s and '70s, but we know now, that the poles of the moon are extremely interesting places, and we should go back, and we should stay," Bezos said. "If we have reusable rockets, we can do it so much more affordably than we have ever done it before. We have the tools. We have the young people with a passion to do it. We can get that done today."

"You're Gonna Die Up There" Air New Zealand #NZ99 To Tokyo Returned To Auckland With One Engine Shut Down Due To Vibrations

Engine issues have forced an Air New Zealand flight to Japan to return to Auckland International Airport on Tuesday morning. An Air NZ spokeswoman said the pilot elected to shut down one of the plane’s engines as a precaution during flight #NZ99 to Narita, Tokyo. “The aircraft carrying 268 passengers and 14 crew landed shortly before 11am without further incident.”The pilot requested emergency services be on standby for the landing, “in line with normal operating procedures”, the spokeswoman said. Fire and Emergency NZ sent five crews to back up the airport’s own fire service, but were not needed. “The aircraft landed safely, and all passengers have disembarked,” Fire and Emergency spokeswoman Megan Ruru said after midday.Source


Space Fantasy #39: Life transported To Other Planets Via Space Dust?

Did life hitchhike through the Solar System?
Astronomers suggest microscopic organisms, such as tardigrades, can be transported between planets by fast-moving streams of space dust. Astronomers have long believed that asteroid (or comet) impacts were the only natural way to transport life between planets. However, a new study published November 6 in Astrobiology suggests otherwise. The study, authored by Professor Arjun Berera from the University of Edinburgh’s School of Physics and Astronomy, suggests that life on Earth may have begun when fast-moving streams of space dust carried microscopic organisms to our planet. Berera found that these streams of interplanetary dust are not only capable of transporting particles to Earth, but also from it. Source

SMOKE OF SATAN ON BOARD: Finnair #AY865 Smoke In Cabin At 30,000 ft Flying In The Habitat Of Demons

Finnair #AY865 diverted to Turku earlier due to smoke in cabin, passengers evacuated via emergency slides
Finnair flight #AY86 from Helsinki to Gothenburg diverted to Turku due to smoke in cabin.  The Embraer ERJ-190 (reg. OH-LKE) was climbing to 30,000 ft when passengers reported smell of smoke in the cabin.  Pilots decided to divert immediately and turned right to Turku Airport, Finland for a safe landing runway 26. Passengers were evacuated via slides.  The fire department investigated the plane but did not find any traces of fire. Finnair is working to accommodate all passengers and book them on new flights.

Here, read from a Saint on where the Demons reside:

Summa Th. I EN Qu.64 a.4 Article: 4 Whether our atmosphere is the demons' place of punishment?
Objection: 
1. It would seem that this atmosphere is not the demons' place of punishment. For a demon is a spiritual nature. But a spiritual nature is not affected by place. Therefore there is no place of punishment for d…
