What’s twisting our antenna,
December 21, 2011?
Did HAARP hit the Phobos-Grunt Probe? Probably not, but put your tinfoil hats on anyway.
A Soyuz rocket launched successfully from the Russian-leased Baikonur cosmodrome this morning on its way to the ISS. We woke up early to watch a beautiful launch. The Russian Soyuz TMA-03M spacecraft is also known by its US designation of 29S. http://www.universetoday.com/92014/video-soyuz-launches-for-holiday-hookup-with-the-international-space-station/
On December 17, 2010, from the new $800 million facility in French Guiana, “A Russian Soyuz rocket fired six satellites into space Friday, launching missions to serve defense agencies in Europe and Chile with high-resolution imagery and electronic intelligence.” http://www.spaceflightnow.com/soyuz/vs02/111217launch/.
In the post Shuttle era it is a huge sigh of relief. In August, an unmanned Progress cargo ship headed for the space station crashed – the rocket that failed was the same kind used by the Soyuz.
The rocket that launched Phobos was a Zenit-2.
The Fobos-Grunt or Phobos-Grunt or just Phobos is an attempted Russian probe that was designed to collect rock and samples from one of Mars’ moons Phobos, and bring them back to Earth to study. It also carries China’s first Mars satellite, Yinhou-1. A pretty ambitious effort considering this is Russia 16th failed mission attempt to the Red Planet.
Phobos was launched on 9 November 2011 at 02:16 local time (8 November 2011, 20:16 UTC) from the Cosmodrome. Apparently, subsequent rocket burns intended to set the craft on a course for Mars failed, leaving it stranded in low Earth orbit. It’s stuck around 201km perigee and 275 km apogee giving skywatchers plenty of looks.
At about two and a half hours into the mission, something went haywire and it is now expected to mostly burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere. So why the failure?
Eleven minutes after launch, it was in an elliptical orbit around 345km above the Earth. In the attempt to raise the orbit and get Phobos on its mission to Mars, two firings from the probes 13 tons of hydrazine fueled tanks were planned.
Russian Space agency officials say neither burn took place.

Along comes an amateur astronomy taking a mediocre video that captures what appears to be Phobos with an unidentified object nearby.
Video of the “Phobos – Grunt Engine Burn – Failed – Passage pelo Brasil – retido na órbita,” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INOwSWTHe20&feature=player_embedded The video appears to show a red flare on a supposed Phobos and another dropping object at about a minute in.
Two Objects in Orbit from amateur satellite watcher Ted Molczan http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Nov-2011/0069.html
I have just received word from the project that there seems to be a serious problem.
After the planned first burn of the engine, the spacecraft was not found in the predicted orbit. Alternative radar
observations preliminarily show that there are two objects in the orbit with parameters the same as before the planned
engine burn. Observers are requested to attempt to discover the spacecraft in the initial LEO parking orbit.
This is the official pre-launch estimated TLE of the LEO parking orbit:
1 55500U 11000A 11312.95486111 -.00010748 00000-0 -11606-4 0 14
2 55500 51.4279 0.6058 0106375 25.7555 298.8256 15.98414689 33
I imagine that one of the two objects seen on the radar could be the final stage of the booster. Accurate descriptions
and counts of the number of objects seen, as well as position and time would be useful.
That makes TWO REPORTS OF TWO OBJECTS near Phobos in Earth’s orbit.
Want to go for THREE REPORTS of Objects Near Phobos? http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Nov-2011/0087.html
Here in Brazil some observers reported that they observed the probe in the
“illuminated phase” of the expected path.
But one of my colleagues (called Heverton) that lives in the city of
Umuarama of state of Paraná (south of Brazil –
*http://tinyurl.com/umuarama*), makes a report at 23:00 (UT)that saw
two objects in the orbit, in the own words:
“I saw, but I found odd. First I saw a point a little slow, but I think it was
the ISS. Then I saw Phobos and right behind it a point with a light a little
weaker. I think it was the remains of the rocket??
If my eyes not deceived me, I saw the light getting a little stronger
at the estimated
time of ignition. Too bad I can do any record”*
I asked more accurate details about the observation and today he wrote:
“Accurately I can not say anything, but I saw it from about 20:55:30 and
20:57:00 (22:55:30 and 22:57:00 UT) . The brightness of the probe was greater
than the ISS shines normally, but much less bright than it was Jupiter. The
position, the best I can remember I tried to sketch with the help of
ROSCOSMOS home page http://www.federalspace.ru/?lang=en is quiet on Phobos and the objects. Vladimir Popovkin has not been and has said, “The probe will break up during reentry into the atmosphere and none of the fragments are likely to reach Earth.” http://en.rian.ru/science/20111213/170212896.html
It was reported on December 6 buy columnist Leonard David from Space Insider that, “Pieces of the spacecraft had begun breaking off and re-entering the atmosphere with the rest of it expected to follow by early January. After consulting with Russian mission managers, the European Space Agency has stopped attempting to communicate with the vehicle, with one analyst noting that the mission “appears dead in the water”.–http://www.space.com/13846-phobos-grunt-russia-mars-mission-doomed.html
Was Phobos attacked by aliens? There are hundreds of satellites besides this one to assail. Was it the fact that we were about to invade Mars with an Earth species? Oh, yes we were. The Living Interplantetary Flight Experiment (LIFE) from The Planetary Society stored a package of micro-organisms onboard in the return capsule. The bacterium Deinoccus radiodurans, a tiny microscopic invertebrate with eight legs and is known for its ability to survive high doses of radiation. http://planetary.org/programs/projects/life/facts.html
If it wasn’t the aliens or just some screw up along the way could it have been HAARP? Lt. Gen. Nikolay Rodionov, a former commander of Russia’s ballistic missile systems, says covert U.S. radio beams — not any Russian screw-ups — scrubbed the interplanetary trip
In a November 24 interview with the Russian news agency Interfax, Rodionov said ‘powerful American radar’ in Alaska ‘could have influenced the control systems of our interplanetary rover,'” Nash wrote in his post:
Rodionov was quoted saying the U.S. wants to use the ionosphere as part of its missile defense, although he did not elaborate. A subsequent article in India’s The Hindu expanded on Rodionov’s statement, indicating that he was likely referring to the U.S.’s (HAARP) observatory established in 1993.

Nothing personal but if anyone is going to use the ionosphere, I hope it is the U.S.A. So what was HAARP up to?
||Ending Date: (YYYYMMDD)
All things considered, a flea on a camel’s ass makes more of a hicup than that.
So maybe it wasn’t exactly HAARP. Or maybe HAARP was on re-runs from a previous day. Could it have been an early warning radar interference mechanism? Could it have been the Russians themselves?
Recall Project Woodpecker and it’s satellite jamming efforts. This was followed by the Duga-2, built on the same site and also used as our daily entry picture.
Woodpecker tracked launches from the far east and submarines in the Pacific Ocean as the missiles flew toward. It’s site lies within the 30 kilometer Zone of Alienation around the Chernobyl power plant. It’s debatable if it remains operational today.
The Russian space program generally speaking is like the U.S. program, running out of money. So who does have the money and the science to kill Phobos?
Remember the lost cosmonauts? http://www.lostcosmonauts.com/default.htm Wasn’t one allegedly held in China? Good like minded communists think alike. What advantage would they have in disabling Phobos?
Phobos mission to go to Phobos has failed, sort of–
*Maybe it was intercepted by extraterrestrial intelligence
*Maybe it was the powers that be in a New World Order
*Maybe it will crash on Earth causing a disaster
*Maybe the bacteria on board is linked to cancer, AIDS, or anthrax
*Maybe it was HAARP
*Maybe it just didn’t work
*Maybe it will land in a populated area/70% of Earth is water.
*Maybe Phobos is well on its way and this is a different satellite
*Maybe the Martians are hanging a do not disturb sign
One can always check out alleged-visual evidence that is is drawn from, verifiable in, and supported by the official science data- http://www.marsanomalyresearch.com/
Now let’s see what it probably resembles:
Considering the shadows and contour, this is what comes up by deduction…

While we are watching the skies, you may be interested to know that private space company SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft is due to make its first launch to the space station Feb. 7 atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 booster.
Last but not least- The Inter-Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee (IADC) an international governmental forum for the worldwide coordination of activities related to the issues of man-made and natural debris in space has of course, no comment. http://www.iadc-online.org/index.cgi?item=home
Stay tuned and have a good day; one day it will be your last. God Bless.
