Sir Richard Branson & His Countless Benefits For Humanity: Welcomes Winklevoss Twins As Astronauts 700 & 701 Aboard Virgin Galactic!



I’m delighted to share the news today that Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss have just signed up to become astronauts 700 and 701 aboard Virgin Galactic. Although many family members have signed up to fly to space together, Tyler and Cameron are the first identical twins to sign up with Virgin Galactic.

My friend and NASA Shuttle Pilot Mark Kelly is also an identical twin. He and his brother Scott are performing a fascinating experiment while Scott is in space aboard the International Space Station in 2015. Scott will be participating in a NASA study, which will monitor the changes in his body resulting from space travel, and then compare his health to Mark’s back on Earth.

The experiment’s name - Differential Effects on Homozygous Twin Astronauts Associated with Differences in Exposure to Spaceflight Factors – is a mouthful, but its results should be mesmerising.

Learning more about space, and providing better access to space has potentially countless benefits for humanity, as Tyler and Cameron so eloquently explained in their blog. We already enjoy satellite television, GPS and even memory foam mattresses because of the space industry. Once we have regular and reliable access to space imagine the possibilities.

They are also among a growing number of future astronauts to purchase their flights with bitcoin. It’s well worth reading their thoughts on combining the two innovative technologies, as well as highlighting the history and future of adventure and space travel.

Judging by the photos of yours truly with Tyler and Cameron, I hope zero gravity doesn’t make them any taller! Sir Richard's Blog

Space Fantasy #32: Mars Perchlorates Kills Bacteria Bacillus Subtilis.....

Mars surface 'more uninhabitable' than thought: study Hopes of finding life on Mars, at least on the surface, were dealt a blow Thursday by a study revealing that salt minerals present on the Red Planet kill bacteria. In lab tests on Earth, the compounds known as perchlorates killed cultures of the bacteria Bacillus subtilis, a basic life form, a research duo from the University of Edinburgh's School of Physics and Astronomy reported. Perchlorates, stable at room temperature, become active at high heat. Mars is very cold. In the new study, Jennifer Wadsworth and Charles Cockell showed the compound can also be activated by UV light, without heat, in conditions mimicking those on the martian surface. It killed bacteria within minutes, said the team, implying the planet was "more uninhabitable than previously thought." Source>>>>>

DOOM Averted! American Airlines Employee Stops Fuel Truck From Plowing Into A Plane Filled With People!

Airline employee stops rolling truck, averts disaster  An American Airlines employee is being called a hero for his fast thinking. Surveillance video from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport shows a man jump into a rolling fueling truck. He stepped on the brakes to avoid a crash and likely a huge explosion. The serious accident was avoided, thanks to longtime American Airlines employee Darren Carbone. He was helping guide a plane back away from the gate at Concourse C when he noticed the runaway truck headed towards other planes. According to the airline, the truck was rolling backwards on the tarmac Tuesday without a driver until Carbone literally sprang into action. “A fuel truck is basically a bomb. It's got a tank in the back with thousands of gallons of gasoline, very volatile,” Source

"You're Gonna Die Up There" JULY 2017: Pilot Talks About 'Weather Phenomenon,' Then Plane Drops Off Radar, Killing 6

Voices will be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their death, and on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

The darksome atmosphere is as a prison to the demons until the judgment day. They carry fire of hell with them wherever they go. The devils besought the Lord not to cast them into the abyss; for they asked for this, deeming it to be a punishment for them to be cast out of a place where they could injure men. Hence it is stated,They besought Him that He would not expel them out of the country. St Thomas Aquinas

The demons of the air together with the Antichrist will perform great wonders on earth and in the atmosphere, and men will become more and more perverted. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept.…
