The first artificial satellite was launched October 4, 1957. Over the past 60 years more than 70 different countries and several private companies launched about 6,000 objects into the space.
1085 satellites are now in working condition, a large part belongs to the United States (450), then Russia (146) and China (135). The remaining 5,000 continue to rotate around the earth as debris.
The orbit on which the moving satellite, and its height depend on the purpose of the spacecraft. In rough form, we can divide orbits into three types, depending on their distance from the surface of the earth.
So, if consider that 1085 satellites are distributed into these three orbits, you might think that we have enough free space to launch of thousands of new units… but it's not true. Inactive satellites (5000), boosters, and parts of spacecraft left in orbit as space debris, which can cause serious problems in subsequent launches.
These particles continue to face with old satellites, creating more debris after the collision and increasing the area of its distribution, is the Kessler syndrome.
It may seem that given the distances in space all this junk poses no threat- in this moment, pieces of debris fly in a radius of 8 km from the satellites every 2 minutes.
But when you consider how many satellites we continue to launch (for example: 4500 satellites for Elon Musk's WiFi project), you will understand that this range will be significantly reduced very fast.
Leaders in the pollution of the orbit: China- 40% (due to the weak technology), USA - 27.5%, Russia- 25.5%. The low-Earth orbit is the most contaminated, because it is here we show the most of cosmic activity.
Some debris will burn in the atmosphere, but it's not enough. Today, no country and no private company don’t have at their disposal a working space- scavenger. There are a number of projects, none of which has clear dates and even budget.
the small spacecraft, which with the help of tentacles, nets or harpoons will collect the debris. What spacecraft will do with garbage after – unknown. On the one hand: all ingenious is simple, on the other hand: such a project could come up with a child.
suggest using a small spacecraft, about the size 300х100х100 mm in the form of a cube. The cube is attached to the useless satellite, or debris and using thrusters sends the object to the ground, so it will burned in the atmosphere.
proposes to use electrodynamic rope. The rope is attached to the satellite or debris and under the influence of earth's magnetic field starts to reduce the speed of the object. Once the speed drops below the first space, the object falls to earth, burning up in the atmosphere. This option is suitable only for satellites, not for debris with a size 10 cm.
propose a method Space Debris Elimination – SpaDE. Satellites and debris will shoot down to a lower orbit using a special atmospheric gas explosions. It is expected to carry out directed explosions with a balloon near the object, the object will change its trajectory and fall to the atmosphere. However, developers do not explain how they will be able to make directed explosions for objects that move at a speed of 11,000 meters per second.
offers as a solution a net of nano-satellites (net width is 3 kilometers). When interacting with the magnetic field of the earth the net generates a voltage, which changes the trajectory of the debris, sending it into the net. According to the developers, complete cleaning of the space within the Earth will take 12 years. Also not specified how the full net will be output from the orbit.
Scavenger, which with the help of special manipulators arms catches the object and change its trajectory, sending to the earth. Sling-Sat will use the energy from the cast to move to another object. The project has no deadline and budget.
An aircraft flying at super sonic speeds create sonic booms and light that leave behind it. Now scientists have made the ultrafast camera that can captures these ultra sonic lights. The scientists believe that the technology used behind it can be used help them to observe neurons fire and live activities in the brain.
How Sonic Booms are created? Object moving in the air pushes the air in its way thus creating waves that move with the speed of sound in all directions. When a object moves with a speed of sound or greater than the speed of sound it can leave behind the pressure waves and these waves keep on piling upon one another providing us new waves known as Sonic Booms. These sonic booms produced are confined in a conical region also known as Mach Cones
Light travels at a speed of 300,000 km/s when it travels through vacuum and according to Albert Einstein, nothing can travel faster than speed of light but however the light can itself decrease its velocity when it travels through different medium. e.g When light travels through water it travels with a speed of 60% of its max value. This study has helped scientists to generate Super Sonic cones or Mach Cones. Scientists experimented it at very low scale and found surprising results with elusive scattering of light.
In order to capture this scattering of light, researchers developed a camera that can capture images at 100 billion Frames Per Second. The camera basically uses two things one to capture the images and the other one is to store the temporal information that would help scientists to reconstruct the event frame by frame.
The speciality about this camera is that it can capture a huge amount of information even in a single exposure. It is very helpful in analysing the unique and random events. According to some great scientists this camera have its great uses in biomedical industry to have a deep study of tissues, blood flow and even movements of neurons. This amazing camera can greatly help scientists to really know about how actually the brain works. The possibilities are limitless with this great tech.

Multitasking used to be about doing two things without a moment's delay, however on account of innovation nowadays we can do up to seven things on the double ineffectively.
Purposes behind why we multitask at any rate:
➤ Managers think they require individuals who can multitask: Numerous businesses put "must be great at multitasking" in their employment postings. Their idea might be that they require individuals who are prepared to react rapidly to anything that surfaces. This might be useful at times.
Be that as it may, if what you need from your workers is profitability or imagination, you won't get it in case you're always interfering with them or requesting that they concentrate on two things at once.
What businesses ought to search for rather than great multitaskers is individuals who can make and oversee chip away at different fronts amid the day, not individuals who attempt to work at the same time on more than a certain something.
➤ It's so advantageous - It's in that spot in your grasp: You barely need to move a finger to discover how your group did, what tomorrow's climate will be, or what's marked down at your most loved store.
➤ We've turned out to be fretful: Would you say you are mature enough to recollect when we needed to go the distance to the library to discover something we didn't have a clue? What's more, we needed to find books on racks and after that look in the file and swing pages to discover what we were searching for?
Presently, we simply need to enter a word or two in Google. What's more, we're so used to quick advanced seeking that we can no longer even understand dial-up Web get to.

Wait, did the world become cyberpunk and I didn't notice?
I should point out the following facts:
• From Robocop.
OCP traditionally dabbled in not for profit industries like healthcare, prisons, and space travel. All of which are now common works.
• Hacktivist anarchist groups out to bring down government and corporate conspiracies actually exist.
• Underground journalists and leakers are actually the biggest threat to First World security in the opinion of the Powers that be.
• The FBI hired hackers to open a terrorist's phone.
• The entirety of Enron was black comedy Frank Miller couldn't have written. For example: They fixed the California elections to put a action movie star in as governor while simultaneously shutting down half the state's power plants to create an artificial energy shortage. This while they were bankrupt from hiding all of their losses for a decade. That's some Shadowrun stuff right there.
• The governments bailed out all the megacorps for gross financial stupidity.
• The world's largest mercenary company, G4, does a large number of the West's prison system as well as corporate security.
• Bionic limbs created by 3D printers are real. The latter because people can't afford the metal ones.
• News networks (take your pick) exist as for profit entities catering to the whim of their audience's bias.
• A reality TV show star and billionaire is the President after a guy who favored unlimited surveillance and use of assassination robots.
• The fact unlimited surveillance exists and was used to help American corporations in deals.
• The fact assassination robots exist.
• The fact you can buy non-lethal versions of many assassination robots online.
• A cellphone sized computer can be a weapon.
• Phones and computers can be plugged into your head, albeit through your ears.
• Detroit, as in Robocop 2, alas did actually declare bankruptcy. They also built a statue of Robocop because, unironically, they really wished they had one.
• The world's eighth largest pyramid is a Bass Pro Shop in Tennessee.
• The working class pay 95% of all taxes versus 5% by corporations when it was reversed in the Forties.
• It's possible to buy a carbon fiber katana over the internet. Ditto mirror shades and a bullet proof trench coat--all shipped to you overnight.
• The police now have Special Forces units in every city and many places have them driving APCs as well as tanks.
• Social media resulted in spontaneous revolutions in several Arab countries. The crackdowns were pretty damn awful to say the least.
• Virtual Reality is a thing with actual games being shipped for it.
• Mass data mining occurs just to find out what you would buy from a online store and why.
• Amazon has sold dumb AI for your house and Microsoft has done the same for your computer.
• China is now the predominate economic power in the world due to how much leverage it has over the United States.
• The Soviet Union may have fallen but we're back to Russians making sinister plans to take over the world, only now with computer hackers.
• Electric self-driving cars exist but no one uses them versus oil guzzling military-looking ones.
• The world's largest environmental disaster was paid for in fines which left the oil company fine.
• It's impossible to tax most trans-national corporations due to their multinational nature.
• Criminal syndicates with ties to terrorism have forced governments to treat with them.
• Global warming has reached the point of
so obvious it's flooding cities while corporations still foster people denying it.
• Countries have places where there's not enough to eat or a central government but citizens possess Ipods.
• A wetworks black ops against Iran's nuclear program was conducted entirely by hackers.
• People have died playing video games because they didn't stop long enough to pee.
• North Korea may have attacked America's movie industry with computer sabotage.
• The fact mercenary-for-hire criminal hackers is an actual profession. They even have names based on what kind of hat they wear.
• The fact artificial worlds people live much of their lives in are common pastimes online now.
• The fact some postage is now being delivered by flying robots.
• The fact individuals are still trying to make artificial islands to be lawless tax-free corporate states. Double points that these invariably become scams to bilk investors.
• All of this is actually right on time for 2020.
Back to the old days life in the Soviet Union of the people is envisioned in 2017. Even it has a communist taste in 1960, but we also know Americans drew similar futuristic imgination before.
I try summarized the contents which provided in the slide show video.
The illustrations were drawn by L. Smekhov. It was very similar desire for technology surprisingly what was happening not only in the United States now .
Let's take a look at the images from the primary source Sergey Pozdnyakov .
Let's take a look at the figure of the Soviet Union in 2017, which was drawn in 1960.
The first slide is obviously the Title written as - 2017 years.
It is possible to look back how the Soviet Union special cinema device was evolved.
Exhibition of Futurama of the New York World's Fair, this illustration was held in 1939 . It was a futuristic streetscape, unlike the children of the Soviets in the work that the exposition visitors could see on Futurama attractions.
In this art, I was thinking - everything in the future of the Soviet Union is to powered by the nuclear energy.
In this art, it seems that the earth surface has melted and disappears, and what is going on inside the earth is also visible. In the depths of the volcano, the underlying molding ship made of special heat resistant steel has infinite, digging towards an energy source.
Wonderful space travel, these space travel illustration certainly seems to be very Soviet.
These space travel illustration is certainly what seems very Soviet, but if an American of you may notice.
It seems to be a boy Igor with a father who works for weather control stations. Weather control technology had been obsessed during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union.
I think he is cooking his breakfast in a computerized kitchen. According to the instructions, it says "Automatic scooping weighs the necessary materials, special knife carves vegetables quickly".
Was “Space Families Jetson” inspired by this Soviet 1962 images, not sure. But it is also remembered that "Space Families Jetson" was a parody program exaggerating outrageousness, gaining ideas from the futurism of the 1950s. This computerized kitchen probably was inspired by the appearance of other futuristic meals that would have appeared in the 1950s. The futuristic exposition was held in Moscow might have affected. Not sure, it was an exposition planned by Americans who were obsessed with the future of food at that time than those of the Soviets.
In the above image, In order to talk with the mother rush to the TV phone that can be seen on the left side of the screen.
Mother is in the Black Sea water kindergarten, science from the future.
What will happen if you suffer from the harsh winter storm like the above image?
Dive in the basement.
Awaiting a wonderful utopia of perfect climate.
Students who were able to take a trip can see the underground cities.
Spring for forever....
Soviet own version of Magic Highway, USA 1958.
The above image is weather control station.
A problem arises here. We are in trouble with weapons that should not have dirty imperialists (Note: America).
I caused a storm, in the South Pacific weapons experiment. In order to save as many people as possibly, need to dispatch weather control stations.
In the crisis - brave officials of the weather control station stormed.
When the weather control station returned to Moscow, the staff were welcomed as heroes with the power to control the weather to save hundreds of lives.
And although it is a TV phone call, the group will temporarily meet again.
Everyone in Moscow gets a breath of relief and women throw flowers to brave Soviet heroes.
We greeted is very different from the Soviet Union's, but there are technologies that have been realized. What will be chosen and realized in the future imagined by the predecessors? It is also a revival that the times change and looking backward.
Tesla wanted to hook up our machinery to the very wheelwork of Nature. To do so we should first understand this wheelwork.
Energy can not be created nor destroyed, for that is how we have defined energy. So we can not just conjure up some energy, we need a source. The main source of energy on Earth is the Sun. In one way or another virtually all energy we have available to us was brought to us from our sun. According to Tesla stars, including our Sun, are electrically charged to very high potentials. Our Sun he estimated at 216 billion volt (positive). Because of the high vacuum surrounding it, this charge can not escape, so what happens is that tiny, sub-atomic particles are torn from the Sun and accelerated away because of the electrostatic repelling force. The Sun is showering these particle rays, which Tesla calls
primary cosmic rays in all directions.
Primary Cosmic Rays
These rays pass through most matter unhindered, but when passing through large dense atoms they may do some damage causing what we know as radioactive decay. So atoms, according to Tesla, do not decay by themselves. It is caused by these primary cosmic rays.
As all stars are emitting these rays, they are everywhere in our universe. And when they interact with matter they may produce what we call bremsstrahlung, which is electromagnetic radiation that he called secondary cosmic rays and that we know as cosmic background radiation (CBR). Most modern scientists believe that CBR are a remains of the Big Bang, but as we see Tesla had a much simpler explanation for it, even before their existence was confirmed.
Then, if these rays do not tear off parts of the atom (radioactive decay) or cause bremsstrahlung, there is a third possible interaction; they may convey a little energy in the form of heat and thus heat up matter. This is what happens in our Earth's core. Because of its large size, the Earth picks up a lot of these primary rays which then heat up the Earth from the inside, just as a microwave oven does.
If we assume that a cold Earth would be electrically neutral, then we know -from Tesla's key- that a heated Earth must have an electric potential. And just as temperature can create electric potential, thermal conduction can be interpreted as electrical conduction (but without the movement of charges).
We know that through our atmosphere the Earth is 'leaking' an electric current of 1800 ampere worldwide. If this were a movement of electrical charges, the Earth would lose 1800 coulomb every second and consequently its voltage would rise several millions of volts every hour. This is obviously not the case, proving that this 1800 ampere that we see flowing through our atmosphere is not an electric current but is thermal conduction; heat from the Earth flowing to the cold interplanetary space.
summing it up
As promised in my first Tesla post, I have shown a number of very elegant and easy to understand explanations for radioactive decay, CBR, the heat in our Earth and atmospheric electricity. But this is just the beginning. These are the wheels of nature, zooming over our heads and that we need to find a way to connect to in order to solve our energy needs once and for all. Stay tuned and I will show you how.

I am providing links to material regarding Science Applications International Corporation and will be compiling these articles into a video presentation after these are republished on the blockchain. The reason for this is both personal and for the community I communicate with as a whole. SAIC has had a presence in what some would term, "Black Ops" projects since it's inception. Because they've managed to merge themselves with so many other companies over the last few decades, their trail has effectively been whitewashed. This appears to be 'by design'. Through one of their acquisitions, they were able to manage the IP address assignments for a number of years. They have the most inside knowledge into it's functioning, in my estimation. This, one can intuit, is precisely why information critical of SAIC and it's founder Robert Beyster is so difficult to find. But if you look long enough you come across everything from Mass Surveillance to Telepathy and Psychic Function experimentation. These aren't "theories". They are facts. I intend to bring more of this information into the light over the coming weeks.
What inspired me to bring more of this into the light is a bit complicated. I am somewhat familiar with SAIC on a personal level, and I'll leave it at that for now. I never worked for them but know people who did. One of these people have always assured me that SAIC doesn't have their hands into any of these things (Surveillance, Psychic Function). They have told me repeatedly to provide evidence of these assertions or drop the topic. This is a reasonable and logical request from anyone. In that spirit, I intend to dissect these articles more thoroughly. If you'd like more background on SAIC, I'd suggest reading the following Vanity Fair article from 2008.
I'd like to give acknowledgement to "Creepy Little Book" for posting the video I linked to in my previous blog about this. He gives a good synopsis regarding SAIC's (Leidos) involvement in managing Antarctica's exploration activities. Thank you for reading. Looking forward to diving deeper into this story as a community.
