The X-37B Conspiracy; Is The Air Force Testing NASA’s EM Drive?
Earlier this year, the Air Force successfully landed one of its X-37B unmanned spacecraft after it spent nearly two years orbiting Earth. Last month, with the help of the SpaceX reusable Falcon 9 rocket, it launched a different X-37B craft for another mission of unknown length. But the duration of this mini-shuttle’s mission is not the only thing undisclosed about the program; everything is. This has inevitably led to a few X-37B conspiracy theories. Is this space drone being used for a nefarious purpose or could it be testing the fuel-less, EM Drive NASA scientists have recently proved feasible?
The X-37B Conspiracy
The X37-B started at NASA in 1999, before being transferred to the Air Force where it was put in the 45th Space Wing program, ostensibly for the development of reusable space vehicles. Though it looks like a miniature version of one of the space shuttles, the X-37B has a more advanced thermal protection layer in addition to some reticent technology inside.
Also known as an Orbital Test Vehicle, Boeing’s secretive “Phantom Works” division spearheaded the plane’s construction, and the elusive nature of the program has led many to believe that it is experimenting with highly advanced intellectual technology. Between the two crafts, the latest launch is the fourth mission which could last anywhere from weeks to years. Some have speculated that the X-37B could be conducting reconnaissance missions on foreign nations or sabotaging foreign satellites that could be perceived as a threat.
But others believe that the Air Force could be in the early stages of launching a program that would weaponize space, causing some panic in the global hegemonic struggle. Both China and Russia have shown concern over the X-37B conspiracy, expressing a desire to create similar crafts of their own. And that fear may be justified, considering that DARPA has also played a role in the plane’s development.
According to the Air Force website, in addition to performing long duration missions and experimentation, the X-37B will test advanced guidance, navigation and control, thermal protection systems, avionics, high temperature structures and seals, conformal reusable insulation, lightweight electromechanical flight systems, advanced propulsion systems, and autonomous orbital flight, reentry, and landing. But despite this laundry list of tests, these technologies are relatively vague and there is not much further detail as to what they are specifically.
The “Impossible Drive,” How an EM Drive Works
The X-37B supposedly runs on a hypergolic fuel system that has been common in jet propulsion since the 1940s. In a hypergolic system propulsion is achieved when two chemicals, usually hydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide, come into contact with each other, eliminating the need for an ignition mechanism. This is a classic system that abides by Newton’s Law, stating that every action has an equal and opposite reaction; in order to achieve thrust, there needs to be propellant pushed in the opposite direction of where you want your craft to go. This, of course, requires fuel and often copious amounts of it.
The idea that thrust can be achieved without a propellant would seem to be impossible. But a recent breakthrough in the development of an electromagnetic engine, or EM drive, may prove to bend these laws, or at least appear to. Based on a hypothetical concept by English engineer Robert Shawyer, NASA has been developing an EM drive under the leadership of Dr. Harold White at its Eagleworks Laboratories at Johnson Space Center.
More technically referred to as a radio-frequency resonant cavity thruster, the EM drive would rely on electromagnetic waves to propel a spacecraft. The traditional rocket propulsion system would be replaced with a microwave cavity that produces thrust from an electromagnetic field. These microwaves would push against the inside of the device causing the craft to accelerate in the opposite direction.
White and his team have measured results from their EM drive that appear to defy Newton’s law of momentum conservation, while producing thrust, sans propellant. Although the results seem anomalous, they have yet to be disproven. Since this announcement, China has claimed to have built its own EM drive and is purportedly testing it in space. Could this be a race between the U.S. and China to develop a revolutionary quantum engine?
The EM drive would undoubtedly make the combustion of traditional rocket propulsion obsolete and would allow for near-limitless travel, if it comes to fruition. There have been rumors that this technology may also prove capable of having the potential to create a warp bubble that would allow for travel near the speed of light.
Other X-37B Mission Speculation
Another new type of propulsion system that has been proven and built by NASA is the Hall-effect thruster, sometimes referred to simply as an ion thruster. This system employs an electric field to accelerate its propellant, usually xenon. By introducing neutrons into a magnetic field and then using electrons to ionize them, the engine can achieve about 70-75% thrust efficiency from this discharge. These ions are then neutralized in the engine’s plume, otherwise the spacecraft would attract them.
This type of system, though not as powerful as combustion rocket propulsion, uses a fraction of the fuel and can last significantly longer, allowing for more distant travel and longer missions. Though it is ideal for these lengthy missions, it trades off time for efficiency.
The Air Force has admitted that it will be testing a Hall-effect thruster during this mission, but could that be the only thing that is being tested? With recent enthusiasm for sending a manned-mission to Mars, particularly with the support of Elon Musk’s SpaceX, it wouldn’t be surprising if they were testing a novel propulsion system that could make the journey more practical. One can only hope that the test is developing technology for the advancement of mankind rather than its destruction.
Are Humans Being Recruited for Breakaway Civilizations?
Did you ever wake up in the morning and feel like something was off-kilter? Perhaps you were worried about finances or visiting in-laws. However, if you were a breakaway civilization recruit your waking moments might be more like this:
You feel like you were asleep forever, but the clock says it is just a few hours later than when you went to bed. Maybe you just had an incredibly long and detailed dream. After several flashbacks or moments of déjà vu, you recall that you were a member of a Secret Space Program (SSP) and spent years living on Mars as part of a human colony. You remember stopping by the moon for a short time when going to or coming from Mars.
People are recruited for these colonies, known as breakaway civilizations when their particular skills are needed in a new civilization. Explore how breakaway civilizations may be essential for the future of humanity and potential recruitment criteria for colonists.
Breakaway Civilizations; An Off-Planet Solution?
In the early 1940s, President Franklin D. Roosevelt became concerned that a catastrophic event would require the movement of large masses of people away from areas of destruction. The problem became more dangerous when FDR discovered there was no one place on the planet that could accommodate such large groups. He even explored the idea of digging tunnels and underground shelters. These plans seemed unworkable, so he explored the idea of developing off-planet solutions, like establishing colonies on the Moon, Mars, or Venus.
Hackers Uncover Evidence of Breakaway Civilizations
There is strong evidence that breakaway civilizations have existed on the moon and Mars for many years. Two independent computer hackers accessed government computers and found reports indicating there were colonies on the moon and Mars. One hacker, Matthew Bevan, accessed the files in the early 1990s. The other one, Gary McKinnon, accessed records in the early 2000s.
Breakaway Civilizations: Recruitment
There are three recruitment categories for Breakaway Civilizations:
- Some recruits are made
- Some recruits are asked
- Some recruits are taken
1. SOME ARE MADE
Randy Cramer believes he was designated to be part of the SSP and go to Mars prior to his birth. He had no choice and was predestined to be a Breakaway Civilization participant.
2. SOME ARE ASKED
Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, great-granddaughter of President Eisenhower, has shared her experiences of being actively recruited to go to Mars. Eisenhower felt she had been targeted before she was born, but it wasn’t until she was a single mother with twin boys that she was asked. She turned down the “opportunity,” but she has provided details of the attempt that was made to get her to join the project.
3. SOME ARE TAKEN
David Paulides heads a group of retired police officers and others who are experienced Search and Rescue experts (SAR). Their mission is to investigate the thousands of reports every year of missing persons. Paulides documents the mysterious disappearances of people around the world. He says these people are “brilliant scholars, athletes and stellar people.” They suddenly disappear under questionable circumstances.
Development of Technology Supports The Existence of Breakaway Civilizations
There is evidence that technology for space travel now allows people to travel from Earth to the moon or Mars without traversing the distance between the places. This technology involves teleportation or some type of secret portal. When you consider all the advancements that have been made in technology that we use in our daily lives, it makes sense that similar advances would be made in the technology used for space travel.
We have gone from fax machines to scanners and email. From landlines to cell phones. We have gone from the original computer that was the size of a large closet to handheld devices with many more available functions. So, isn’t it possible that space travel technology would also experience such advancements, including how to travel in space by teleportation through portals or some other equally fast way?
Mind Control Devices: Project MK-Ultra
The CIA is known for several mind control programs. Project MKUltra, a secret CIA project designed to test the effect of drugs on humans, was conducted on unwitting subjects from 1953 to 1964. During the program, experimenters gave test subjects drugs that caused them to have hallucinations and other adverse reactions. Other drugs erased memories of time and events.
In 1976, the U.S. Senate investigated the MKUltra program. Senators were shocked by some of their discoveries. For example, Congress learned that the secret program was designed to discover drugs that could help people “withstand privation, torture and coercion during interrogation and so-called brain-washing” and other drugs “which will produce amnesia for events preceding and during their use.”
Using these drugs, along with technology learned from aliens, explains why Randy Cramer and the other whistleblowers would at first have no recollection of their trip. Other drugs to reverse memory loss along with therapy allowed them to recover their memories. Some people view the concept of breakaway civilizations as a “pipe dream” shared by a few folks who are trying to bask in their 15 minutes of fame by telling their incredible stories of life on Mars.
