Beginning the journey of a lifetime are Cdr Louise WEBBER (USA) Celestial Mariner 1, Cdr Beverley ALCHAM (USA) Celestial Mariner 2 and Cdr Phillipe Beauregard (EUR) Celestial Mariner 3 together with an estimated 30,000 hand picked individuals from around the world.
Each of the Celestial Mariner craft, the largest ever built by Magellan, has accommodation for up to 10,000 individuals spread over 74 levels, a full range of medical facilities, laboratories, a full range of educational suites, workshops, entertainment malls including gymnasiums to help maintain a healthy lifestyle for everyone on board during its estimated 40 year journey to the stars.
We were able to speak with one of the Mission Flight Directors at Magellan about the launch.
Will E.T. Be Phoning Home?
We will continue to monitor messages sent from the three craft for the "foreseeable" future. The launch of the three craft went as expected and the anti-gravity devices functioned as predicted, enabling each of the craft to reach the upper atmosphere before transferring power to the main pulse generators. It was a textbook launch for all three craft.
Will Anyone Be Returning?
We were able to reserve places aboard each of the craft for those chosen to undertake the mission, such as husbands, wives and their children, so that none of their immediate family were left behind after the launch.
Does Magellan plan to build more of these craft?
The three Celestial Mariner craft are unique insomuch that those who developed the craft, the Magnatron gravitational devices and pulse generators, are aboard each of the three craft to ensure the complete success of the mission. Despite having seemingly infinite resources to enable each of the builds to take place, those resources are now heading out in to deep space.
So... What Is The Mission All About?
The primary aim of the mission is to ensure the continuance of the human race, to find a suitable "host" planet that those on board can colonize and, eventually, make their home. They also have on board part of the Millennium Seed Bank so that they will be able plant, sew and harvest just about any species of tree, flower or food crop to sustain life and, moreover, make a new life more adaptable among the billions of stars and Earth-like planets we know that exist in the outer depths of the solar system.
FOOD RIOTS CAUSE worldwide CIVIL UNREST
American investigative journalist Alfred Henry Lewis (1855-1914) famously said, "There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy." He went on to explain, "It may be taken as axiomatic that a starving man is never a good citizen."
What he means is that hunger dispels the illusions of a polite society and unleashes the desperate animal-like nature that lurks inside all human beings. A starving man trying to feed his starving children will at some point abandon all law and order, doing anything necessary to keep himself and his children alive, including engaging in robbery, assault and murder.
Stated another way, the only reason most people obey laws and agree to live in a socially polite manner is because their bellies are full. Take away the food and all illusions of social friendliness vanish in about nine meals (three days). No local police force can hope to control the actions of the starving masses, regardless of how obedient the population once was when food was abundant.
MASSIVE SOLAR STORMS now affecting ENERGY SUPPLIES
Many people around the world are already experiencing electrical interference that is said to will affect vehicles, television, radio, computers and electricity generators that feed businesses and home alike.
A total worldwide blackout is inevitable.
World leaders around the world met today amid fears that the world faced a potential crisis once the power grids failed and electricity supplies stopped altogether. A spokesperson for the Energy Commission said that it could take months, if not years, to replace all the generators and restore power to essential services. Residents are being told to stay in their homes and not to venture out at night.
Who you gonna call?
One resident told SpaceNews "Once this used to be a respectable neighborhood. Now the place is full of rotting corpses. The smell is almost unbearable. The police said that they'd come investigate, but no one ever did."
prisons turn out their rapists, thIEves & killers
One Prison official said "We just didn't let them go. Heck no! They all had to swear a promise, and cross their heart, that they would all be Good Guys once we let them go."
Y'all be safe now. Lock those doors and stay inside. Whatever you do, don't go out at night.
