Forgotten Cold War Plan To Put A Ring Around Planet Earth-

During the summer of 1963, Earth looked a tiny bit like Saturn.

The same year that Martin Luther King, Jr. marched on Washington and Beatlemania was born, the United States launched half a billion whisker-thin copper wires into orbit in an attempt to install a ring around the Earth. It was called Project West Ford, and it’s a perfect, if odd, example of the Cold War paranoia and military mentality at work in America’s early space program.

A potential solution was born in 1958 at MIT’s Lincoln Labs, a research station on Hanscom Air Force Base northwest of Boston. Project Needles, as it was originally known, was Walter E. Morrow’s idea. He suggested that if Earth possessed a permanent radio reflector in the form of an orbiting ring of copper threads, America’s long-range communications would be immune from solar disturbances and out of reach of nefarious Soviet plots.

The ultimate fate of the West Ford needles is also surrounded by a cloud of uncertainty. Because the copper wires were so light, project leaders assumed that they would re-enter the atmosphere within several years, pushed Earthward by solar wind. Most of the needles from the failed 1961 and successful 1963 launch likely met this fate. Many now lie beneath snow at the poles.

But not all the needles returned to Earth. Thanks to a design flaw, it’s possible that several hundred, perhaps thousands of clusters of clumped needles still reside in orbit around Earth, along with the spacecraft that carried them.

Yeah, another good one is the 'Discoverer program' a/k/a Corona Project. It was military spy mission hidden under a fake NASA research project. Shocking to me, but these secrets are quietly leaked out drip by drip eventually. Not only the public, but the scientists involved were completely hoodwinked....can't make this shit up, LOL.

"The Corona project management structure became the National Reconnaissance Office(NRO). NRO is a supersecret agency whose exist was not even acknowledged until recently. On December 23, 1958, the government created an project, called Discoverer, with an acknowledged goal of scientific research: testing of returning vehicles to Earth for the recovery of occupants, instruments, films and other scientific payloads; development of an early warning system for the detection of enemy missiles; development of a stable platform for scientific observations. The entire Discoverer Project was a ruse. No scientific objectives were planned. Discoverer actually had a staff working on scientific instruments, including launching pods for space mice, but none were ever launched or intended to be launched. Discoverer Project staff did not know about Corona. The cover was so elaborate that scientific instruments placed on Discoverer satellites were removed before launch.

[link to spacecovers.com]

From NASA's official website-

The Discoverer program was a classified operation managed by the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense and the U.S. Air Force. The primary goal of the program was to develop a film-return photographic surveillance satellite to assess how rapidly the Soviet Union was producing long-range bombers and ballistic missiles and where they were being deployed, and to take photos over the Sino-Soviet bloc to replace the the U2 spyplanes. It was part of the secret Corona program which was also used to produce maps and charts for the Department of Defense and other US government mapping programs. The goal of the program was not revealed to the public at the time, it was presented as a program to orbit large satellites to test satellite subsystems and investigate the communication and environmental aspects of placing humans in space, including carrying biological packages for return to Earth from orbit. In all, 38 Discoverer satellites were launched by February 1962, although the satellite reconnaissance program continued until 1972 as the Corona project. The program documents were declassified in 1995.

I wouldn't want you to violate a trust or spill any beans (tho feel free to IM me with any clues, hehe).

The more I think about this, the more astounded I am. The first successful United States satellite launch was in Jan. '58-Explorer 1:
[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

This was a panicked response to the Russian Sputnik. That NASA article states that between Dec. '58 to Feb. '62 there were 38 Discoverer launches. That's like ONE A MONTH! The first 3 years of our nascent space program was run by (D)ARPA, NRO, USAF and probably overseen by NSA (founded in 1952!). And to think it was all built by NAZIS and hidden by the public-friendly fake NASA front organization as a science experiment. I'm dumbfounded at how trusting and naive my parents' generation was. I guess the new tech of TELEVISION successfully clouded people's minds. Thank God for LSD, the INTERNET and the MESSIAH....may that Holy trinity expose and defeat their evil designs. Selah!

I believe that velocity is a false data reading based on spurious SOHO images.It must be much slower than that. It'd take an M5 or better to shoot a CME out at 1400-1999 km/sec. It was big but it was only a filament.

In any event, the CME doesn't seem Earth-directed (no halo) . STEREO B sows it going away from Earth. So I call a 'possible glancing blow' with many considerations. We have a large coronal hole, a CME, the 60 W. long. factor, and the aforementioned Solar Sector Boundary Crossing and how they interact, only God really knows. If the Bz is negative we could see a G2 Storm or maybe nothing at all.
It was much slower than CACTus says but it may interact with the northern CH-HSSS (coronal hole-HiSpeedStream) or maybe not....we shall see, eh?

I wasn't critiquing you, ya understand, Sol Man. Only rarely do I question the CACTus data; but it's an automated computer system. When an image (or data) is missing, it miscalculates velocity....it's 'robot-stupid' in other words.

I've been observing a lot of raw nature where I am in the hills of Tennessee (named after the Cherokee town TENASI. And it occurred to me that no robot or drone could ever improve on the Creator's gift of LIFE. Yeah, they can build a dragonfly that sees in infared and shoots poison darts at ya; but is that really an IMPROVEMENT on the 'Natural Order'? I think it's not. The transhumanists oughtta get out of San Francisco and check out the real world. It will blow your mind!
Coming from a more or less City/Suburban matrix, a lot of natural wildlife is very new to me. I've seen many species of butterflies, birds, reptiles, a family of deer,many rabbits, lotsa dead skunks, a badass raccoon, about 30 new species of insects and arachnids which I've never encountered before. In Colorado Springs I saw a bear runnin' around Downtown. Nature is an example of resiliency, true diversity and a design which makes life strive to prosper and reproduce.

At times, I've felt telekinetic power in enticing insects and mammals to behave in a respectful way towards me. And, Praise God!, they will obey a pure heart. I'd rather work to CONVINCE NATURE- than to CONQUER IT. The sharks and jellyfish have never bothered me, thank God.

It was much slower than CACTus says but it may interact with the northern CH-HSSS (coronal hole-HiSpeedStream) or maybe not....we shall see, eh?

Thanks. We shall see. I want this ISWA CME model to update. nothing yet though...
 Quoting: #Geomagnetic_Storm#


I wasn't critiquing you, ya understand, Sol Man. Only rarely do I question the CACTus data; but it's an automated computer system. When an image (or data) is missing, it miscalculates velocity....it's 'robot-stupid' in other words.

I've been observing a lot of raw nature where I am in the hills of Tennessee (named after the Cherokee town TENASI. And it occurred to me that no robot or drone could ever improve on the Creator's gift of LIFE. Yeah, they can build a dragonfly that sees in infared and shoots poison darts at ya; but is that really an IMPROVEMENT on the 'Natural Order'? I think it's not. The transhumanists oughtta get out of San Francisco and check out the real world. It will blow your mind!
Coming from a more or less City/Suburban matrix, a lot of natural wildlife is very new to me. I've seen many species of butterflies, birds, reptiles, a family of deer,many rabbits, lotsa dead skunks, a badass raccoon, about 30 new species of insects and arachnids which I've never encountered before. In Colorado Springs I saw a bear runnin' around Downtown. Nature is an example of resiliency, true diversity and a design which makes life strive to prosper and reproduce.

At times, I've felt telekinetic power in enticing insects and mammals to behave in a respectful way towards me. And, Praise God!, they will obey a pure heart. I'd rather work to CONVINCE NATURE- than to CONQUER IT. The sharks and jellyfish have never bothered me, thank God.

In my opinion, this is what life was intended to be.

That CME is even slower than I thought-

NOAA-24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at low levels. The largest event of the period, a
C3/1f flare, erupted from Region 1817 (S21W24, Esc/beta) at 14/1655 UTC.
This region was also responsible for the majority of the other low level
C-class flares throughout the period. It continued to exhibit a
horizontal shear line, but also continued to show signs of decay. The
other spot groups were either stable or decaying. SDO imagery observed a
fairly extensive eruptive prominence that lifted off the southwest limb
at approximately 14/2145 UTC. Initial WSA Enlil analysis of Lasco and
STEREO imagery indicates the associated coronal mass ejection (CME) was
slow (~350 km/s) with the majority of the ejecta moving just south of
the ecliptic plane. Further analysis of this CME is ongoing
. No other
Earth-directed CMEs were observed throughout the period.

The C2.9 flare near the leading edge of 1817 looks to be a classic Hyder two-ribbon flare. A Radio Emission Alert was issued which may indicate a CME from this event.

ALERT: Type II Radio Emission
Begin Time: 2013 Aug 15 2217 UTC
Estimated Velocity: 1019 km/s
Description: Type II emissions occur in association with eruptions on the sun and typically indicate a coronal mass ejection is associated with a flare event.

A lot of filaments popping up and it looks like several are rounding the corner, interesting. Looks like we had a farside CME, decent size.

Good evening Hugh and all. Had a weird day , saw some of the lowest clouds I've ever seen , big fluffy cotton balls that seemed only 150 to 200' off the ground, kind of gave me a roof collapsing feel, seemed very strange

edit, guess I should have read before posting, nice catch on the farside event Hugh.

NOAA 24-hr. Summary (NOTE: the CME they refer to is yesterday's fat filament liftoff)-

Solar Activity

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at low levels. The largest event of the period, a
C2/Sf flare, erupted from Region 1818 (S07W07, Dki/beta) at 15/1756 UTC.
The region continued to exhibit a horizontal shear line and slight areal
growth over the period. The other region of interest, Region 1817
(S21W31, Ekc/beta-gamma-delta) exhibited some intermediate spot decay
but redeveloped intermixed magnetic fields including a weak delta within
the large leader spot. The region was responsible for a C1/Sf at 15/1835
UTC. Two new regions were numbered during the period; Region 1822
(S08E57, Dao/beta) rapidly evolved on the disk and Region 1823 (S07E72,
Hsx/alpha) rotated onto the disk. The remaining spot groups were either
stable or in slight decay. At about 14/2000 UTC, both SDO/AIA 304 and
GONG H-alpha imagery observed a 21 degree long filament eruption
centered near S28W70. At 14/2200 UTC, SOHO/LASCO C2 imagery observed a
slow-moving CME off the SW limb with a majority of the ejecta directed
just south of the ecliptic plane. WSA Enlil analysis indicated this CME
did not have an Earth-directed component.
