Remember Chenobyl

I’ve found a great re-enactment based on a true story that describes in graphic detail what happened at Chernobyl. More importantly it tells the part of the story surrounding the incident that needs repeating as humanity faces another nuclear disaster. Lies and obfuscation kill, and lies and obfuscations cause others to be obligated to make great sacrifices.

Today in just WTF

Majestic 12 Group Special Operations Manual

A few days ago the British Government released a batch of information from their UFO files. You guys probably saw what the media discussed about it, it was everywhere

So anyway being of the UFO loving variety (I know what I saw) I decide to read the letters and look at the pictures and visit the archives for what might be in store.

That’s when after reading a few letters I ran across this.

Majestic 12 Group Special Operations Manual

It’s in a pdf form that doesn’t allow copying and pasting, but let me just take a few choice paragraphs among many I found interesting.

From History of the Group

Operation Majestic-12 was establishd by special classified presidential order on 24 September 1947 at the recommendation of the Secretary of Defense James V. Forrestal and Dr. Vannevar Bush, Chairman of the Joint Research and Development Board. Operations are carried out under a Top Secret Research and Development—Intelligence Groupdirectly responsible only to the President of the United States. The goals of JM-12 are as follows:

a The recover for scientific study of all materials and devices of a foregn or extraterrestrial manufacture that may become available. Such material and devices will be recovered by and and all means deemed necessary by the Group.

b. The recovery for scientific study of all entities and remains of entities not of terrestrial origin which may become available though independent action by those entities of by misfortune or military action

c The establishment and administration of Special Teams to accomplish above.

From section 10 Description of Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (EBE’s)

Examination of remains recovered from wreckage of UFOB’s indicates that Extra-terrestrial Biological Entities may be classified into two distinct categories as follows.

a. EBE type 1. These entities are humanoid and might be mistaken for human beings of the orientl race if seen from a distance. They are bi-pedal, 5-5 feet 4 inches in height and weigh 80-100 pounds.

It goes on from there, far on from there.

The cover sheet states something to the effect of this came across the wire just file it. It’s from 2001 that the files were sent.

So, here’s a little fun for the afternoon evening, no?

Did you know about Comet Elenin? You might find out soon enough.

Comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) is a long-period comet discovered by Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin on December 10, 2010 at International Scientific Optical Network's robotic observatory near Mayhill, New Mexico, U.S.A.
C/2010 X1 will come to perihelion (closest approach to the Sun) on 10 September 2011 at a distance of about 0.48 AU. On 16 October 2011, the comet will pass within about 0.23 AU (34,000,000 km; 21,000,000 mi) of the Earth[2] at a relative velocity of 85,000 km/hr.[2] This relatively bright comet can reach 6th magnitude on September-October 2011.
Wiki link

An AU is an Astronomical Unit and is the distance from the Earth to the Sun.

What's gotten hearts beating a little faster since the discovery is that Comet Elenin is still more than 4 astronomical units (375 million miles) from the Sun and headed inbound. It's still early, and the calculated orbit is certain to change in the weeks ahead as more position measurements are made, but right now it appears that the comet's perihelion will occur well inside Earth's orbit, about 0.45 a.u. (42 million miles) from the Sun, next September 5th.

Right now, odds are that Comet Elenin will become an easy target for binoculars around mid-August and reach naked-eye visibility for a couple of weeks around perihelion. The comet's elongation from the Sun shrinks to just 1° following perihelion, but soon thereafter the comet gets enough separate to position itself nicely for viewing in the predawn sky.
Sky and Telescope fun for Astronomy Geeks like myself

That’s sweet. I’m an amateur astronomer. When I heard about Elenin it was something I was really looking forward to and am going to have fun observing.

That is until I saw this from a NASA website.

I draw your attention to 1:38 in particular

Because of the possibility that the comet’s orbit slightly deviated, from there is no guarantee that the Earth will be missed

It's the same link as above, but I wanted it raw so you could see the

I beg your pardon? means NASA right? So, does anyone remember anyone in the MSM or anywhere else discussing the possibility of being smacked by a comet right around next September? I sure don’t.
