Fire in the Hole! USAF Staff Sgt. Kelsey Herzfeld, assigned to the Wyoming Air National Guard’s 153rd Airlift Wing, preps to connect the MAFFS nozzle to one of two Wyoming Air National Guard MAFFS C-130H. The work was done before leaving for Idaho. The Wyoming Air Militia has been flying MAFFS missions since 1975.

Sex in Space? China’s doin’ it!

“We hope to get an initial understanding about the space micro-gravity effects on stem cell proliferation and differentiation.”-Duan Enkui, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Inside the cargo compartment of space-freighter Tianzhou-1

Aboard China’s new and just launched Tianzhou-1 space-freighter an experiment like no other is taking place; making space babies!

Among other experiments Chinese scientists are using human stem cells to test the viability of Earthlings being able to have sex, I mean conceive children in a weightless environment.

To make it even more interesting, the scientist conducting the experiment are still on Earth.  They’ll be using remote sensing technology to ‘get-it-on’ in space.

On top of that, they hope to discover the ability to help Earthlings regrow new organs and limbs: “Maybe scientists will be able to induce stem cells to grow into certain tissues or organs in space in the future to serve people on earth. In another scenario, if a human is injured and loses organs in future space migration, the lost organs might be regenerated……We expect to continue our research into embryonic stem cells on China’s future space station. We aim to try to culture functional tissues, such as heart, kidney, liver and spleen tissues.”-Lei Xiaohua, Chinese Academy of Sciences

In the BAT ‘cave’ at Camp Dodge Joint Maneuver Training Center, Iowa.

According to the following video report there are only two BAT (BLACKHAWK AIRCREW TRAINER) in use, and the Iowa National Guard is the first state militia unit to get one of them:

By the way, one BAT costs taxpayers $9-million USD, which is cheaper than flying the real thing.

“We look forward to this joint training with our military and civilian partners. Training together with all four MAFFS wings alongside U.S. Forest Service and other wildland firefighting agencies here in Boise provides a significant opportunity as we prepare for another challenging wildfire season.”-Colonel Bryan Allen, Air Expedition Group

More than 4-hundred state National Guard and federal Reserve personnel from California, Colorado, Nevada and Wyoming arrived in Gowen Field, Idaho, for a week of U.S. Forest Service training: “MAFFS have played a critical role in wildfire suppression for more than 40 years by providing surge capacity when commercial airtankers are fully committed or not readily available as they frequently are during periods of high wildfire activity.”-Kim Christensen, USFS

Destroy U.S. Dollar: Japan recognizes Bitcoin as official money! Charities accept it for donations!

At the beginning of April, Nippon (Japan) legalized the use of Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, and immediately two major retailers announced they would accept customer’s Bitcoins.  Now the city of Hirosaki announced it would accept Bitcoins for their Save the Cherry Blossoms charity.

The value of Bitcoins has skyrocketed since Nippon legalized its use.  Nippon is the first country to legally, officially, recognize cryptocurrencies as money.

The next big move to watch in the cyrptocurrency revolution is Россия (Rossiya aka Russia).  In 2014 Rossiya banned the use of such money, but towards the end of last year the Федеральная налоговая служба, ФНС России (Rossiya Federal Tax Service) reversed the ban, saying bitcoins are not illegal.  Rossiya  Deputy Finance Minister Alexey Moiseev even said cryptocurrencies could become legally (officially) recognized by 2018.

What is money? Money is not a real tangible thing, it’s whatever a government accepts as money based on a value system.  In ancient times the first money systems used shells then grain crops and even salt as ‘money’.  Then came coins minted by the first empires, and thousands of years later paper money and something called credit. For a long time governments (which includes religions) tied the value of their money to the value of a precious metal like gold, but between 1971-73 U.S. President Richard Nixon changed that.  Nixon and his cohorts United Kingdom (British empire) and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (also connected to the British empire) conspired to create a new money system tied to petroleum oil called the PetroDollar system.

Russian Android teaches self to shoot guns!

“FEDOR demonstrated his abilities to shoot from both hands……to set priorities instantly and make decisions.”-Dmitry Rogozin, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia

The humanoid Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research robot has been learning a lot, the latest thing is how to use a pistol, with both hands at the same time.

In the video FEDOR gunslinger is at the end, after the robot tanks:

Reminds me of the MGM movie Westworld.  

So far it can open doors, turn on lights and drive cars.  Eventually FEDOR will be used to pilot Russian space flights by 2021.

It’s being developed by Android Technics and Russia’s Emergencies’ Ministry Advanced Research Fund.

Ice Planet Hoth invades Russia with giant ATVs?

17 April 2017 (01:44 UTC-07 Tango 06) 28 Farvardin 1396/20 Rajab 1438/21 Jia Chen 4715

“It is a global project, which we planned for several years, and which demonstrates abilities of people and of vehicles.”-Anna Golubeva, To The East coordinator

On Friday four odd looking giant All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) left  Arkhangelsk, Russia, on a 10-thousand km (6-thousand-214 miles) trip across the Arctic.

The vehicles are the radical Sherp ATVs and will travel where no other ground vehicle has gone in the Arctic “…the only thing you can see is the shadow from the ISS [International Space Station].”

To The East is sponsored by Russian Geographic Society and the city of Saint Petersburg.  You can buy a Sherp for about $65-thousand USD.

“A crew can live in the vehicle. It is small, highly maneuverable; two people are comfortably in the front part while driving, and they can take a night rest, there is a comfortable soft bed there.”-Alexei Garagashyan, designer/expedition leader

“The vehicle does not have any axles, everything is inside, so in case of necessary maintenance everything is done inside the vehicle. They will not have to crawl under the bottom or freeze outside. Oiling chains – no problem here, just push the button and the oil gets there. The vehicle is made for use in complicated conditions.”-Anna Golubeva, To The East coordinator

Why are they taking this dangerous never before done trip? “…most importantly, it is a unique opportunity to see this country, to meet new people.”-Alexei Garagashyan, designer/expedition leader

Washington Militia shoots the ‘shit’ outta their two-forties!

Washington National Guard aviation units conducting live fire training with their M240 machine guns:

The ‘240’ is also used by infantry and on ground vehicles like the M1 Abrams.  The machine gun was originally designed back in the 1950s by Fabrique Nationale in the NATO co-founder country of Belgium (called the FN MAG). It uses  7.62x51mm (.308) NATO ammunition.  The United States began using its version (called M240) in 1977.

FALSE FLAG: AR-15 IS NOT “HIGH POWER” OR “HIGH VELOCITY”! IT’S A “PLINKER”!
