Sir Richard Branson's "Cosmic Girl" Turns Into Cosmic Joke!




Sir Richard Branson is reassigning one of his old Virgin Atlantic 747-400 jumbos to the service of space.

The jet will be the launch platform for the satellite rocket being developed by another of the entrepreneur's companies - Virgin Galactic.

The 747 will carry this booster to high altitude where it will be released to ignite its engine and go into orbit.

Jumbos have long played a role in space activity, most famously to transport Nasa's old shuttles across America.

Virgin Galactic will be air-launching a tourist spaceplane from underneath a jet vehicle, and originally had planned for the satellite rocket to use the same platform.

But the performance requirements of the booster have driven engineers to seek an alternative carrier.

Earlier this year, they announced they would be increasing the payload capability of the forthcoming rocket after consultations with prospective customers - a jump from 120kg of satellite payload to 200kg, into a standard orbit.

That meant stretching the tanks on the booster to accommodate more propellant, and, as a consequence, its mass and length had to increase.

The old 747-400 jumbo can handle this. Coincidentally, it used to fly in its Virgin Atlantic livery under the nickname "Cosmic Girl". It will now get a new paint job in the Virgin Galactic colours.

The company has produced a video visualisation of how the system will work. BBC Read More>>>>

MANDALAY Shooter Stephen Paddock Was A Former NASA EMPLOYEE?

Former NASA employee Stephen Paddock murdered 58 wounded 528 in the MANDALAY MASSACRE.
No.
It's a typo.....

Stephen Paddock Had 16 Guns Inside His Hotel Room & Fatally Shot Himself Before Police Found Him Police said the shooter is a “local individual” who was firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel just outside the concert area. He died inside the hotel room after a police SWAT team used an explosive breach to blow open the door and then engaged with him. Police said they believe he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound before officers arrived in the room. A security guard who went to the room before officers arrived was shot through the door by the gunman. His condition was not known Monday night. According to police scanner transmissions, 72 minutes passed between the first shots fired and when officers breached the hotel room where Paddock was holed up. Source

Stephen Paddock Shot Aviation Fuel Tanks From His Mandalay Bay Hotel Room

Las Vegas Strip mass murderer Stephen Paddock used his Mandalay Bay hotel room to fire bullets at jet fuel tanks Sunday night, a knowledgeable source told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The bullets left two holes in one of two circular white tanks. One of the bullets penetrated the tank, but did not cause a fire or explosion near the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, another knowledgeable source said late Wednesday. The tanks are roughly 1,100 feet from the concert site, where Paddock killed 58 people and wounded almost 500. Several airplane hangars belonging to prominent corporations are also near the tanks.

Would not have triggered an explosion:
“A machine gun is not going to blow up a tank of fuel,” Boyd said. “Jet fuel itself sitting there in a big wet pile is very hard to ignite. You have to be a very amateur terrorist to think anything like that.”

Here, read from a Saint on where the Demons reside:

Summa Th. I EN Qu.64 a.4 Article: 4 Whether our atmosphere is the demons' place of punishment?
Objection: 
1. It would seem that this atmosphere is not the demons' place of punishment. For a demon is a spiritual nature. But a spiritual nature is not affected by place. Therefore there is no place of punishment for demons.
2. Further, man's sin is not graver than the demons'. But man's place of punishment is hell. Much more, therefore, is it the demons' place of punishment; and consequ…
