Notable Events and Statements

February, 2011 – NASA shuts down their WISE satellite – a far better infrared telescope than IRAS was and responsible for discovering a large number of Near-Earth Objects (NEOs).

March 30, 2011 – NASA shut down its Buzz Internet Forum almost immediately after someone posted a recalculated trajectory for Elenin at only 0.004 AU (that’s less than 40,000 miles from Earth) as opposed to the official claim of 20 million miles or more.

April, 2011 - SETI shuts down their Allen Telescope Array, placed into “hibernation.” (The SETI Institute was founded in 1984, the year following the supposed discovery of Planet X and operates one of the only arrays of this kind.)

July 21, 2011 – NASA shuts down its aging space shuttle mission and retires the fleet.

August 1, 2011 – NASA openly admits that they will be turning the Stereo-B Satellite on a 135 degree roll downwards in order to observe the approaching comet Elenin.

Late August, 2011 – Trips to the International Space Station are put on hold as a Russian rocket fails.  Russia is now the only country that has the technology to ferry astronauts to the Space Station and all lift-offs are on hold.

September 1, 2011 – NASA publicly considers abandoning the International Space Station and mainstream media stories of space debris begin circulating, along with science “advisors” speaking about the effects and potential outcome of an unmanned space station and various other space-related headlines surrounding the Space Station.

NASA Media Teleconference on Solar Flare Characteristics

Category: Astronomy and Space Science

Event Format: Media Opportunity

Date: Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Location: Washington, DC 20546, US

WASHINGTON -- NASA will host a media teleconference at 1 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Sept. 7, to discuss new observations about solar flares that can impact communication and navigation systems.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is providing new data and images for scientists to better understand the sun's dynamic processes, which can affect Earth. The spacecraft launched in February 2010.

Teleconference participants are:

-- Madhulika Guhathakurta, SDO program scientist, NASA Headquarters

-- Tom Woods, principal investigator, SDO Extreme Ultraviolet Variability Experiment (EVE), University of Colorado, Boulder

-- Rodney Viereck, director, Space Weather Prediction Testbed, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Space Weather Prediction Center, Boulder

-- Karel Schrijver, principal investigator, SDO Atmospheric Imaging Assembly, Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center, Palo Alto, Calif.

-- Rachel Hock, EVE instrument scientist, University of Colorado, Boulder

To participate in the teleconference, reporters must contact Steve Cole at 202-358-0918 or by 9 a.m. EDT on Sept. 7 for dial-in instructions.

Audio of the teleconference will be streamed live on the Web at:
