INTRODUCTION: THE  PARALLELS BETWEEN THE
CHALLENGER AND COLUMBIA

THE WISDOM OF MAE BRUSSELL

by Virginia McCullough


As the world joins in mourning the brave astronauts who perished aboard the Columbia, we should learn from the past. There are numerous parallels between the demise of the Columbia and the tragic explosion of the Challenger that cold Tuesday morning, January 28, 1986.

Both events occurred shortly after Super Bowl Sundays.  Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush had just delivered their State of the Union addresses to a nation mired in a depressed economy, facing an ever increasing deficit, and standing on the edge of war.  Both Reagan and Bush were intent on spending billions of dollars on an unproven program called "Star Wars".  Both space ships were the oldest and, in Challenger's case, the most troubled in the fleet.  Both catastrophes left NASA with three remaining shuttles and those shuttles would be shifted to military priorities.

Could it be that both the Columbia and the Challenger fell victim to national leaders whose priorities abandoned the brave souls who rode these fragile vehicles into the heavens?  Both presidents who would voice their sorrow over the heroes' loss also held the ultimate power to protect the astronauts by assuring the safety of NASA space ships.  Deeds speak with a great more moral integrity then words of sorrow mouthed after the sacrifice of brave space adventurers.  Neither president acted to insure the safe return of those who risked their lives to push the limits of man's knowledge. 
         
The well known saying that "if we do not learn from history, then we are bound to repeat it" applies to the tragic loss of both Columbia and the Challenger.  The following article by Mae Brussell predicts the future and we are living it now.

William Rogers, Chairman of the Commission appointed by President Ronald Reagan to investigate the causes of the Challenger shuttle explosion on January 18, 1986, stated that "A serious deficiency in the flawed decision making process was responsible" for the tragic event that occurred on Tuesday morning,  January 28, 1986."

That makes a good and safe cover story.  Human error did it.
What if the demise of the Challenger, with its seven member crew, wasn't an error?

Mike Royko,  columnist for the Chicago Tribune, wrote, "Somebody should check the laws of Florida and the federal laws for criminal liability.  There could be a manslaughter case here."

Senator Donald W. Riegle, D. Michigan, suggested  that, "one can only assume they, the President's Commission, are hitting upon things that are so disturbing they feel they can't share them with the public."

A NASA official was quoted as saying, "It's like an artichoke.  Everyday they peel something else.  The Commission has begun pointing the finger at the individuals and the procedures involved in the catastrophe and the resulting picture isn't pretty."

Every major military operation, or shift in Defense Department policies, occurs as a result of long planning.

The problems surrounding the Challenger's explosion, with the disastrous ripple effect upon the entire shuttle program, indicates the Pentagon and NASA's Star Wars operation will assure the friendly skies for their Warfare State.

Control of all space projects for the future will be in the hands of the military.  Commercial and exploratory projects are now being shelved, or put on a long waiting period.

The transfer of NASA/Shuttle programs to the Defense Department was described in an article in Spaceflight, May 1982 entitled "The Military Role in the Shuttle" by Gerald L. Borrowman.  The United State Department of Defense has a major role in the utilization of the space shuttle.

The first participation of the shuttle Challenger, with new Pentagon policies,  became obvious in September 1983.

The Challenger "accident" may go down in history, along with the Reichstag fire, the assassination of Austrian Archduke Ferdinand, the Gulf of Tonkin incident, or the downing of the Korean Airliner 007, as a provocateur action implemented  by the military in order to get tighter control of the war machinery.

Some estimated costs to activate the shuttle projects are between $2 and $10 billion dollars.  It would take from four to five years.

It is impossible to believe that such a system, so huge in terms of money, plans and  contracts for military purposes and spy satellites, didn't have some kind of back-up with less expensive provisions in the event of a single accident.

Making matters worse, the accident was obviously preventable.

Time and money is not thrown away so fast unless there are other major plans waiting to appear.

NASA had already ordered the shuttle program's extinction as early as 1983.  The terms were an impossible situation, "pull yourself out of the red and produce more revenues of at least $2,000,000,000".  Get going, or get out of the way, was the message and the pressure.

Problems related to the controversial O-ring, caused by freezing in cold weather,  were a concern to NASA as early as December 19, 1982.

By February, 1983, NASA was warned, then it chose to ignore, specific problems created by lack of protection with the secondary back-up seals.  Why was the shuttle program appearing to lack interest in survival of their equipment and passengers?

Memorandum detailing a "catastrophic" disaster if the shuttle was launched in less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit was presented to NASA in July 1985,  and again in August 1985 by two different scientists.

Did NASA, and the Pentagon, select the time when they demanded a lunch on the coldest day in shuttle history?

The Challenger shuttle, unlike any other launch, waited outside in rain and cold for 38 days.

Television cameras focused upon the ice coating and huge icicles at the time of the launch.  Ice teams were sent out the "check".

It was not always cold at Cape Canaveral.

The Rogers Commission limited their public inquiry into launching decisions to the evening of January 27th and the morning of the 28th of January 1986.

Plans for an earlier launch on Saturday, January 25th, 1986 were postponed because of dust storms in Africa and Morocco.

It is interesting that the weather, so far away, was conveyed to the launch team at the top of the their pyramid.  The same decision makers couldn't see ice, or feel freezing temperature around them at Cape Canaveral.

It was not a matter of seeing or feeling the cold.

NASA experts from Huntsville, Alabama, at Marshall Space Center, literally ordered management from Morton Thiokol and Rockwell to either approve of this launch or ignored what they did not choose to hear.

Challenger would leave on the morning of January 28, 1986.

Weather was not a factor considered, then or now.

Robert Lund, Vice President for Engineering at Morton Thiokol, the company who made the controversial solid fuel boosters, was told to "stop making an engineering decision".  He was supposed to change from an engineer to a manager, removing his decisions from scientist to the business world.

Lund took on two hats.  One hat was as a manager,  because Marshall teams at Huntsville were dangling a renewal contract for Morton Thiokol,  involving $300 to $400 million a year, while forcing an about face regarding a life and death matter on safety of seven astronauts.

The other hat was military.   Lund changed directions and took orders.

Life is cheap for the Pentagon.

Sunday turned out to be a fine day for a launch.

Was there too much media competition with the Super bowl Sunday, with Reagan's "teacher in space" production, after two years of publicity?

The hundreds of press, teachers, and students waiting at Cape Canaveral, could have seen a fine launch on Sunday, Monday afternoon, or even Tuesday afternoon when it was much warmer.

NASA officials had been alerted by Sunday that a cold front was coming in Monday night or Tuesday for sure.  Indications were that weather was always a factor in safely launching a shuttle.

The orders to launch coincided with President Reagan's State of the Union speech before Congress.

Reagan's pet teacher, Christa McAuliffe, was superstar for this event.  Would this factor be sufficient to endanger an entire shuttle history of safety?

Rumors spread through Washington, D.C. that Chief of Staff Donald Regan called Marshall Space Flight Center and ordered the "ship to fly" on the morning of January 28, 1986.

Regan, Wall Street broker from Merrill Lynch, does not know the mechanics of space travel or safety.  He knows business.  Billions of dollars, not lives, have a way of altering judgment.  So has national security.  Only  the National Security Council and the Pentagon put words into Regan's mouth on shuttle matters.

A shuttle disaster would not embarrass the "Teflon president".

A shuttle "catastrophe" would be, and was, an advantage for Star Wars, SDI,  and  the militarization of space.

Reagan's primary goal, at the present time, is to disperse so much funds and contracts into SDI that no matter who is President, Republican or Democrat, the first strike offensive and space weapon system is in place.

Background for the SDI, and their recent announcement of laser weapons that can scorch the earth, came from the importation of 642 Nazi specialists to the United States between May 1945  and December  1952.  The  importees'  expertise was in rockets, atomic bombe, and missiles.  The United State benefited greatly from their Nazi compatriots.

Project Paperclip by Clarence Lansby, describes how Dr. Werner von Braun, Walter Dornberger, with their 640 partners, manufactured weapons from Adolph Hitler at Peenemunde and Camp Dora "with the benefit of ten thousand slaves laborers under control of the Waffen SS, the Gestapo." 

Those Nazis, brought to Huntsville, Alabama, came with the idea of using space to "rule the world" by building a reflector that would kill living persons immediately.  It could instantly kindle forests or turn the ocean water into steam.

It was no coincidence that the pressure to launch came from four top officials at Marshall Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

William Lucas, Stanley Reinartz, Lawrence Mulloy and George Hardy still arrogantly defend the launch massacre, which went against all scientific facts and warnings of exactly what would happen to the shuttle and its passengers.

Konrad Dannenbery, part of the Paperclip-Von Braun team, and George von Tiesenhousen, Nazi rocket scientists described in the Wall Street Journal the "hazards of rocketry",  clearly implying that deaths go with the territory of exploration."

Remember, however, the seven murders of the astronauts were avoidable.  Why couldn't they wait to launch?  Tuesday afternoon was warm.

While Star Wars/ SDI  has been in the minds of both the Germans and the United States Pentagon for over thirty years, it wasn't formally presented to the world until March 23, 1983.

President Reagan, with the father of the Hydrogen bomb Edward Teller by his side, coaching this event, pulled out the Paperclip ambitions and titled them SDI, The Strategic Defense Initiative.

August 30, 1983, five months after the SDI presentation, the shuttle Challenger was launched in the dark of night.

Challenger would start it's twenty-fourth and twenty-fifth orbit, making a close approach to the Korean Airliner 007.  (12)

While a satellite could monitor the KAL-007 activation of Soviet defense systems, the shuttle was on one of its designated military functions.  Challenger's role "extended intelligence operations with sea, land, air and space involvement".  (13)

Representative Larry McDonald, chairman of the John Birch Society and Western Goals, was used in Korean KLA 007, a civilian plane used to for military purposes.

When KAL-007 was shot down by the Soviets, the arms race escalated as never before.  Reagan used the deaths of 268 passengers for pushing production of MX missiles, deployment of Pershing 11 and cruise missiles in Europe, and to escalate funds for his new Star Wars, High Frontier, SDI projects.

Edward Teller was on the Board of Western Goals, a military spying data bank, with the late Larry McDonald.

The pilot of the Challenger [August 30 1983 to September 5, 1983] was Rear Admiral Richard Truly.  Truly became head of Naval Space Command.  Following the Challenger destruction on January 28, 1986, Truly has been appointed to replace Jesse Moore as Associate Director for Space Flight.

Jesse Moore was offered a promotion to become director of Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas, just five days before the launch tragedy.  Those were the sunny days when Challenger rested before the soon-to-be-freezing launch.  Remember, Moore had the final decision for a "go or no go".

1983 was also the year that Lockheed got their contract for maintenance of the shuttle system at Cape Canaveral.  Lockheed's $1.2 billion, 3 year job, included readying the shuttle for each launch.

Lockheed was the contractor that built and assembled the suspect rocket booster.

Recent news accounts describe patchwork repairs on the shuttles as "Mickey Mouse" operations.

The history of Lockheed is one that hardly recommends such a sensitive position with the politicized, and overzealous NASA-wired Star Wars assured, project that is in the pocket.

The company hired to service the shuttle program, Lockheed, is best described by author Jim Hougan in his book, Spooks.

"Lockheed's chairman, Daniel J. Haughton, masterminded and raped the treasures of a dozen countries, corrupted the political processes of both hemispheres, jeopardized national security,  screwed the taxpayer, destabilized the governments of three allies, undermined NATO, subverted the marketplace, boosted inflation, and stimulated suicides as far apart as Tokyo and Las Angeles."

Would Lockheed employees, with past cozy relationships with former Nazis, fascists, members of the Wafer SS, assist the SDI and militarization of space, or have any part of  dismantling the civilian space program?

One Lockheed employee working on the Challenger nearly went out of his mind upon seeing the explosion. "It was my fault.  I killed seven people," he screamed.

Lockheed had an unprecedented series of accidents, the most recent being where their derrick hit the Challenger, possibly weakening the side for raging fuel to enter.

There are two obvious changes in NASA, and the military space program, since January 28, 1986.

NASA is getting exposure of their bitter in-fighting, mismanagement, near accidents and horror stories on inefficiency.

The Rogers Commission, along with leaks and Congressional pressures, will uncover scandals inside the shuttle program and NASA itself.

At the same time, funding and projects for the Star Wars and SDI  have escalated.

SDI is the only Pentagon project not open for any cuts at all  by the Gramm-Rudman amendment.  National securities hold cow, Reagan and Teller's baby, is untouchable.

Congress has been asked to spend $4.8 billion for Star Wars in 19987.

The Energy Department wants $603 million for nuclear weapons in space.  That will include microwave hear, the Paperclip goals, nuclear pellets, and projects related to SDI, in case they can not pull in enough cash over the table on their own.

$50,000,000 more has been requested for nuclear weapons research.  NASA and the Pentagon want a "third generation weapon, beyond the atomic and hydrogen bomb.  Edward Teller is to give birth again.  Ronald Reagan is the mid-wife."

Teller and Reagan have teamed up since Governor Reagan visited Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, in Berkeley, California in 1966.

NASA, rocket and missile experts, scientists, specialists in future possible nightmares, now are assured monopoly and control of  space projects.  Atomic bombs,  Star Wars lasers, reflectors can be activated without some civilian teacher trying to explain the "humanization of space".

When one shuttle blew up, the other three were doomed for anything but military purposes.

Almost a perfect James Watt "Rainbow Coalition" went to their graves.  One black, a classmate of Jesse Jackson, one Buddhist-Japanese, one Jew and two women.

If the launch explosion was no accident, and could have been prevented, was the crew handpicked for this specific voyage?  Given the mentality and logic of the Reagan team, if not Reagan himself, combined with the imported Nazi space scientists still ordering when to launch, nothing is impossible or should be overlooked.

TAPE NO. 742 FEBRUARY 24, 1986 – WORLD WATCHERS INTERNATIONAL 

REAGAN'S KALLENGER 007, CAN'T SEND AIDES TO ROGERS' COMMISSION ON GROUNDS OF SEPARATION OF PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS.  Warren commission protected Lyndon B. Johnson, murderers of JFK.  Senate Select protected Richard Nixon, links to Dallas.

WORLD WATCHERS WILL REMAIN ON THE AIR, NO CUT-OFF IN JUNE.

I will continue on KAZU-FM and will continue tapes by subscription.  The immediacy of events such as the Shuttle explosion, and Advanced Genetic Sciences moving into Monterey County, illustrate how important instant communication is between the radio audience, reporters, people concerned about all the various issues.  You get the idea!!  Thanks.

UP-DATE ON A FEW SHUTTLE ARTICLES.

"FORCES GO AWRY, FORM `ACCIDENT CHAIN', SHUTTLE TECHNOLOGY PITTED AGAINST HUMAN ERROR, WEATHER, POLITICS" Washington Post 2/9/86.

1.  The technology was rigid, don't blast off in freezing temperature.
2.  The error was ignoring instruction, taking orders from ABOVE.
3.  Weather was always part of technology, fuel, seams, tiles, pipes.
4.  Politics was using teacher to cover deficit, budgets, Star Wars.

DAN RATHER, CBS EVENING NEWS, FEBRUARY 18, 1986.  "LAUNCH IN COLD WAS POLITICAL DECISION"  Advice to delay because of freezing, "CANCELED".

"ENGINEERS DOUBT COLD CAUSED DISASTER"  DC Times 2/7/86 (First day) Re-read their lies three weeks later, see how Rogers Commission worked Jesse Moore, now removed was set up, a devil's advocate" committee.

"OFFICIALS SEEM SURPRISED BY AGGRESSIVE QUESTIONS" New York Times 2/7/86

Albert D. Wheelon, senior vice-president Hughes Aircraft.  Richard P. Feynman, professor, California Institute of Technology [These two, the hard inquiries].  Judson A. Lovingood, testifying propellant at 55 degrees without tests.

"TESTIMONY SO DRAMATIC AND U UNEXPECTED THEY AGREED PRESIDENT REAGAN SHOULD BE INFORMED"  San Jose Mercury 2/15/86

Weather actually 6 degrees and 7 degrees.  "What we don't know is who knew about those temperature readings?" (That is the big question.  Did Reagan, Regan push this for January 28 speech?)

"PANEL LEADER `APPALLED' NASA MISSED KEY DATA.  DECISION-MAKERS AT NASA DIDN'T GET KEY LAUNCH DATA"  San Jose Mercury 2/19/86

This is the BIG LIE.  Weather was on their minds all week and before.  William P. Rogers will not allow Congressional representatives to his hearings on grounds of 'SEPARATION OF POWERS BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS".  THIS COMMISSION IS TO COVER-UP THE PRESIDENT.

"WHITE NIGHT SOUGHT FOR DEMORALIZE SPACE AGENCY"  Los Angeles Times 2/15/86

Reagan should look for Jim Jones or KISSINGER, HIS CENTRAL AMERICAN ADVISOR.  Things couldn't get much worse.  What about Daniel Graham, SCI?

"THE RIGHT STUFF' "New Woman" February 1986  "How Ordinary Teacher, Wife, Mother became the FIRST PRIVATE CITIZEN IN SPACE".

Another lie.  There were lab scientists, "guests" from Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Germany, etc.  Two members of Congress.

Always the diary.  Less Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, Artie Bremer, John Hinckley, etc.  "New Woman", 2/86, tells how Christa McAuliffe's diary "helped keep her alive.  Her diary was a gusty move."

"CHAIN OF ERRORS DOOMED SHUTTLE, MANY FACTORS CONVERGED TO BRING ABOUT DISASTER.  DESIGN FLAWS, COLD WEATHER ALL MAY HAVE LED TO TRAGEDY" Los Angeles Times 2/16/86

Tape #740 - 28 reasons Challenger was doomed.  SDI  vs. NASA, orders from above to "lift-off".  NASA in-fighting.  White House.

CONTINUED FROM #741, "DRASTIC MEASURES IN DISPUTE AIDS STUDY", PART II. San Francisco Examiner 2/9/86/

"Rhetoric of funding proposal is DESIRE TO SCARE MILITARY INTO FUNDS".  "The proposal stresses the danger to military of female-to male."  "Dr. Donald Francis, former chief of CDC's Aids Task Force, Atlanta, Georgia, currently working with California Department of Health and AIDS research and has been IDENTIFIED IN THE PROPOSAL TO THE MILITARY AS A MEMBER OF THE GROUP'S SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY COMMITTEE".

"Studies could lead to SOCIAL ISOLATION OF VICTIMS OF AIDS OR OTHERS CONSIDERED AT RISK FOR THE DISEASE."  Military would decide.

"BEHAVIORAL MODIFICATION research program could involve restriction on access of military personnel to certain HIGH RISK GROUPS".

"The possibility of quarantine for those exposed to AIDS is explored"

AIMS MEMO, ADVANCED INVESTIGATION OF MEDICAL SCIENCE GROUPS, "with a pandemic of catastrophic potential, would require state mandated registration of AIDS individuals, need and feasibility of quarantine, need for an feasibility of MANDATORY AND OVERT IDENTIFICATION, however LOATHSOME.
A STAR OF DAVID CONCEPT."

":The military's $40,000,000 research program received little scrutiny by Congress or NEWS MEDIA, since
IT WAS HURRIED THROUGH SEPT. 1985."

"Molecular genetics and sophisticated application of research to clinical problems, interaction between these to be tested."

"Application of new genetics research in reproductive biology."

"A new research facility will be built at Rockefeller University in New York,, used by Hughes Institute.  Center at Yale."

Hughes Institute Labs will be at Columbia, New York City; Johns Hopkins, Baltimore; Duke University, Durham, North Carolina; Washington University, St. Louis; Baylor, Houston; Vanderbilt, Nashville and Stanford University.  Other programs in Pennsylvania, Chicago, Texas, Michigan, Washington, Utah, UCLA, San Diego and San Francisco.
