China Launches a ‘Reusable Experimental Spacecraft’

At least 163 people trapped by a fast-spreading wildfire near Central California’s Mammoth Pool Reservoir in the Sierra National Forest had been rescued by the Air National Guard as of early Sunday morning, according to a report.


Recap 9/5/2020

  1. Secrecy at the highest level: NORAD discovered in Earth orbit today Chinese secret test spacecraft 2020-063A, which is analogue of secret American shuttle X-37B. China Corporation for Space Science and Technology (CASC) said Changzheng 2F launch vehicle was launched from Jiuquan Cosmodrome on Friday with reusable test spacecraft, "designed to test reusable in-flight technologies and technological support for peaceful exploration space.”

  2. North Korea may be prepping submarine-launched ballistic missile test, U.S. weapons experts warn. “A sea-launched missile test would definitely cross all of President Trump’s red lines because it would involve a major ballistic missile," Dr. Victor Cha said.

  3. New high-res images of the sun show how creepy sunspots look in closeup. One of the most powerful solar observatories in the world has just completed a major upgrade. And now, the GREGOR solar telescope in Spain has taken some of the most high-resolution images of our Sun ever obtained in Europe.

  4. The U.S. Air Force’s mysterious unmanned X-37B space plane has flown four secret, long-duration missions in Earth orbit to date.

  5. NASA’s Roman Space Telescope’s primary mirror has been completed. The field of view is 100 times greater than Hubble. The Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope’s primary mirror will collect and focus light from cosmic objects near and far.

  6. Sea level mission will also act as a precision thermometer in space. To get the best measurements of Earth’s atmosphere, you sometimes have to leave it. This November, the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich spacecraft will do just that.

  7. Rocket limbo complicating NASA’s Europa Clipper mission. Clipper team members say they need a decision soon.

  8. NASA readies Perseverance Mars Rover’s earthly twin. NASA’s next Mars rover has a nearly identical sibling on Earth for testing. It’s about to roll for the first time through a replica Martian landscape.

  9. Futuristic ‘Flying-V’ airplane makes successful maiden flight. Researchers have conducted a successful maiden flight of the Flying-V, a futuristic and fuel efficient airplane that could one day carry passengers in its wings.

  10. ‘Linusgate’ leaked: over 250 messages about code of conduct complaints against Linus Torvalds. Debian ‘canceling’ the founder of Linux is no “small potatoes” and considering the reason (or what this was done for: an expression of an opinion) we probably should be alarmed about ramifications for free speech. Important to understand: All the biggest greats in tech are being cancelled by Woke culture which has been funded by the worst big tech monopolies like Microsoft and Intel. This is clear evidence that the woke war is heavily funded and run by the worst of big tech. The reason the big tech companies do this against BDFLs (“benevolent dictators for life”) is to weaken the competition and strengthen themselves. Wokeism is killing the workplace too and the war is just beginning. If this nonsense persists, we will enter a new dark age. There is a wildly successful cancel culture campaign going on behind the scenes. It’s as if they were able to get all of the top NBA players fired — so then they could come in, and say that everyone is equal in ability and that star players don’t exist, and that since everyone has equal ability, they should all be given jobs in the NBA too. While children in China want to pursue science because they are encouraged to do so, most children, statistically speaking, in the US and the UK talk about becoming celebrities or social media influencers when they grow up. This is clearly the implementation of an insidious cold war strategy that most of the West does not see coming: If the woke culture propaganda campaign persists successfully, all of the West’s best scientists will have been canceled and China will be poised to take over STEM in the West’s stead, making China, by default, the only superpower left. Anti-science anti-meritocracy should be considered a threat to national security.

  11. Tesla’s ‘full self-driving capability’ falls short of its name. Consumer Reports says the $8,000 option doesn’t make the car self-driving, though it does offer a host of advanced features.

  12. Amazon bans foreign sales of seeds in US amid mystery packages. Amazon said it has banned foreign sales of seeds in the United States after thousands of Americans received unsolicited packages of seeds in their mailboxes, mostly postmarked from China.

  13. Stocking clerk telepresence. Japanese convenience store chain begins testing remote controlled robot staff in Tokyo. The robot is controlled across distances by humans via a VR set using the “Augmented Workforce Platform.”

  14. The top three computer manufacturers said they have a shortage of nearly five million laptops.

  15. There’s going to be a food shortage from December to March. Stock up on canned good, fruits, vegetables, vitamins, water, and stay away from the meat. That’s what people will go after first. Also the meat will most likely contract the virus.

  16. Wayne Thogmartin: “The saga of the national mason jar lid shortage continues. My grocery has conceded that all we have left to us is to salt our food.” Soup For My Family: “I’ve been informed that there is a mason jar shortage and the lesser prepared groups are panicking while the rest mock them.” Beth Carpenter of TDS Weather: “I hear there’s a mason jar shortage! I’m from Muncie, IN where the Ball Glass Factory was, home of ball jars. Surely I can find a few!”

  17. Washing machines, dryers, and other appliances are designed to make our lives so much easier and are often taken for granted. But if yours breaks now during the pandemic, you could be left hanging out to dry.

  18. Bangladesh mosque explosion kills 17 people, including a 7 year old child. At least 50 more people were injured. An explosion, allegedly caused by a leak from a gas pipeline that runs under a mosque, occurred at Baitus Salat Jame Masjid in the Narayanganj district, almost 25 km south of the capital of Bangladesh. The death toll could rise significantly as many of the victims are in critical condition now. All victims were taken to Dhaka State Specialized Burn Hospital with 30-80% body burns.

At least 25 people have more than 90% of their bodies burned. After theory has surfaced about the cause - the explosion may have been caused by six air conditioners on the first floor of the mosque. Police continue to study the explosion pattern.

  1. Turkey has deployed 40 tanks to the Greek border from the Syrian border. Two separate tank columns from the Reyhanli and Kumlu areas to Hatay moved to Edirne. Joint maneuvers by warships and aircraft of UAE and Greek Armed Forces took place in the Cyprus region in the Eastern Mediterranean. Turkey announced military exercises with formations of Ankara-controlled Northern Cyprus.

  2. A Panamanian ship called the Gulf Livestock 1 carrying 43 crew and nearly 6,000 cattle from New Zealand to China has capsized after losing an engine in stormy weather in the East China Sea during Typhoon Maysak. The search for the remaining crew members — 36 seamen from the Phillippines, two from New Zealand, and two from Australia — continues.

  3. Palau invites US military to build bases as China seeks regional clout. The tiny Pacific nation of Palau has urged the United States military to build bases on its territory, which lies in a region where Washington is pushing back against growing Chinese influence.

  4. The Pentagon has published a video of US strategic bombers B-52H Stratofortress with nuclear weapons over the territory of Ukraine. On the morning of September 4, the planes took off from British Fayford airbase and passed over Europe. Then the bombers passed along the northern border of the Crimea, the coast of the Sea of Azov, and made several calls to the conditional "target.”

  5. A U.S. Air Force B-52 just set another intelligence trap for the Russians. On Friday, a U. S. Air Force B-52 bomber flew through Ukrainian air space near the Black Sea. It was bait for the Russians.

  6. A Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter from Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville went down Thursday in Onslow County, NC, following self-ignition in flight. Four people on board were not injured. Most of media called the crash of an almost burned-out helicopter "an emergency landing.”

  7. Court approves warrantless surveillance rules while scolding FBI. The release of a newly declassified ruling follows a separate decision by an appeals court that a defunct National Security Agency program was illegal.

  8. FBI Los Angeles: “The FBI continues to investigate reports of a jet pack near LAX on 8/30. Anyone with info about activity on or above the ground at the location should call the FBI. The FBI takes seriously events that threaten US airspace and investigates alleged violations.”

  9. The age of true jetpack flight is near, and Special Operations Command wants in on it. JetPack Aviation in California expects to have a full-scale individual lift device prototype ready for initial flight testing by late summer for U.S. Special Operations Command.

  10. Argentinian professor with COVID-19 symptoms dies after gasping for air in the middle of a Zoom lecture. In Argentina, a college professor at the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE) in Buenos Aires developed severe COVID-19 symptoms in the middle of her Zoom lecture and died the next day, unnerving her colleagues and students. In a statement on Twitter, the university confirmed the death of the 46-year-old Prof Paola de Simone. When her students asked for her address to call an ambulance, she said “I can’t.” The wife and mother of a daughter, Simone wrote on Twitter on August 28 that she had been experiencing COVID-19 symptoms for at least four weeks, and “the symptoms do not go away.”

  11. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu received a shot of the country’s ‘Sputnik V’ COVID19 vaccine. The minister said that all medical staff of Russian military and the military officers will receive the vaccine voluntarily first, and then expand to the whole military.

  12. Ministry of Defense of Georgia published footage of transfer US Armed Forces military equipment involved in exercises "Noble Partner 2020.” Striker armored personnel carriers and HUMVEE off-road vehicles, logistics vehicles and artillery were delivered to port of Poti from Norfolk on dry-cargo ship Ocean Freedom the day before. A convoy of American military equipment will head to Vaziani. More than 2,700 servicemen from Georgia, USA, UK, France and Poland will take part in maneuvers.

  13. Russia registered 10,079 deaths linked to suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19. The new data is from the state statistics service Rosstat. The virus had been the main cause of death in 4,863 of these cases, Rosstat said. Russia recorded a total of 181,500 deaths that month, up from the 151,554 it had recorded in July last year, according to the data. Rosstat is not aware where the other 20,000 deaths came from.

  14. Pilot jobs could be at risk as robo-planes take flight. “We believe the path to full autonomy begins with the air…"

  15. POTUS gives a press conference about Kosovo. The press attempt to turn it into a critical race theory debate.

  16. Several boats sank during today’s Trump supporters’ boat regatta on Lake Travis, Texas. There is no information about the victims yet.

  17. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Journalist, Franak Viačorka: “Thousands of Women are marching Minsk downtown. The protest looks like a festival.”

  18. Ford Fischer: “A couple dozen members of the “National Patriotic Defense Team” Militia are gathering about four miles from downtown Louisville. Another right-wing militia group is currently reportedly rallying up about ten miles away as well. They’re currently listing emergency contacts.”

  19. Black Lives Matter protesters riot in Manhattan, cause $100,000 damage. Eight people were arrested Friday night when a group of 150 Black Lives Matter protesters smashed windows and graffitied the storefronts of Lower Manhattan chain stores and banks. Sources say that police made between 2-6 arrests when NYPD engaged the group on 22nd St. They quickly dispersed, and police struggled to track individuals afterward. About 300 people are near Lafayette and Canal in Manhattan, chanting "every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground.” NYPD swoops in behind the crowd, making at least one arrest. Some kind of smoke bombs have been deployed. Sergeants overheard arguing about using the radio to coordinate. This crowd has been moving pretty fast, leaving some broken windows in their wake. Already passed through Washington Square Park and is now near Flatiron. Protestors in Union Square now, calling for the rigging of elections in favor of the Democratic Party.

  20. ‘You’re not allowed to film’: The fight to control who reports from Portland. Both sides are getting their information through purposely bottlenecked media reports, and the results are predictably distorted and dangerous.

  21. Western New York school district delays classes after wave of teacher resignations and leaves of absence.

  22. A Florida teen allegedly shut down remote school with a DDoS attack.

  23. Predictive policing runs rampant in Tampa. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco took office in 2011 with a bold plan: to create a cutting-edge intelligence program that could stop crime before it happened. What he actually built was a system to continuously monitor and harass Pasco County residents, a Tampa Bay Times investigation has found. First the Sheriff’s Office generates lists of people it considers likely to break the law, based on arrest histories, unspecified intelligence and arbitrary decisions by police analysts. Then it sends deputies to find and interrogate anyone whose name appears, often without probable cause, a search warrant or evidence of a specific crime. They swarm homes in the middle of the night, waking families and embarrassing people in front of their neighbors. They write tickets for missing mailbox numbers and overgrown grass, saddling residents with court dates and fines. They come again and again, making arrests for any reason they can. One former deputy described the directive like this: “Make their lives miserable until they move or sue.”

  24. Amazon has used discreet access to private Facebook groups for drivers in its Flex program to monitor potential problems for the company, including organized labor initiatives. The analysis extends to Reddit forums, Twitter, and other websites where Flex drivers might gather. The company also created a tool that monitors posts in those spaces in real time and sorts the topics of conversation into dozens of searchable categories. The revelation comes the same week that Amazon published job listings for “intelligence analysts” who could among other duties “track labor organizing threats.” Amazon took the posts down after public outcry.

  25. Mexican drug cartel may be loading up cheap drones with explosives to use as weapons. They wouldn’t be the first; ISIS used the technique, and Venezuelan president Nicolas Madura was targeted by two DJI M600 drones in 2018, each carrying 1 kilogram of C-4 explosive. But each new incident of drones breaking bad is a reminder that, after all these years, there’s still no great (legal) way to stop them.

  26. CNN: “52% of young adults in the US are living with their parents. That’s the highest share since the Great Depression.” Note: The media is portraying this as an economic move; our analysis differs. Unconsciously, the population guessed hard times are ahead and families are preparing by gathering and staying together.

  27. Plague-bearing fleas spark closures at popular Lake Tahoe sites. Officials have announced that three Lake Tahoe parking areas - at Tallac Historic Beach, Kiva Beach/Picnic area, and the Taylor Creek Visitor Center - will be temporarily closed after fleas tested positive for the bubonic plague.

Anyone else investing in home improvement since covid?

As a Licensed Accountant said in a group post, “let me say this. Yes, payroll tax cuts starts today which means taxes will not be taken out of your paychecks as long as you make less than $104,000 annually. Listen to me save that money don’t blow it. You will need that money later on. You have to pay that money back one way or another which means your employer will take a higher percentage of payroll taxes from your paycheck starting January 1, 2021-April 30, 2021. Your paycheck will be significantly lower during that time period. Don’t get caught up in the hype that you have more money because in reality by the end of April 30, 2021 it balances out to being the same amount of money you would have made anyway without the cut. Don’t put yourself in debt because of this.”
