Outer Space Treaty of 1967

Did you know that this treaty existed? I know I didn’t until I was researching an article for our radio show: The Uncooperative Radio Show. The article was about the UN and the fact that they had appointed an ambassador to handle space aliens when they come to earth. I should get that article up also, huh?
After all, Halloween is around the corner. Read the whole thing people, its very important.

Treaty on principles governing the activities of states in the exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies.
Opened for signature at Moscow, London, and Washington on 27 January, 1967
THE STATES PARTIES. TO THIS TREATY,
INSPIRED by the great prospects opening up before mankind as a result of man’s entry into outer space,
RECOGNIZING the common interest of all mankind in the progress of the exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes,
BELIEVING that the exploration and use of outer space should be carried on for the benefit of all peoples irrespective of the degree of their economic or scientific development,
DESIRING to contribute to broad international co-operation in the scientific as well as the legal aspects of the exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes,
BELIEVING that such co-operation will contribute to the development of mutual understanding and to the strengthening of friendly relations between States and peoples,
RECALLING resolution 1962 (XVIII), entitled “Declaration of Legal Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space”, which was adopted unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly on 13 December 1963,
RECALLING resolution 1884 (XVIII), calling upon States to refrain from placing in orbit around the earth any objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction or from installing such weapons on celestial bodies, which was adopted unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly on 17 October 1963,
TAKING account of United Nations General Assembly resolution 110 (II) of 3 November 1947, which condemned propaganda designed or likely to provoke or encourage any threat to the peace, breach of the peace or act of aggression, and considering that the aforementioned resolution is applicable to outer space,
CONVINCED that a Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, will further the Purposes and Principles ofthe Charter of the United Nations

When you read the entire treaty, which only has sixteen amdendments, you will notice that China did not sign on to it. Which begs the question: does that mean that China can do anything is wants in space?

Obama Details Revised NASA Vision

 From Fox News:

Forget the moon, President Obama said. We’re going to Mars. Yet the President stopped short of setting specific goals, leaving a question lingering in the minds of many: When?

“By the mid 2030s, I believe we can send men to Mars’s moons and return them to Earth,” he told a crowd at the Kennedy Space Center

in Florida, near the launch pads where U.S. space voyages begin.
Armstrong and other astronauts expressed concerns over the past few days that scrapping the moon program would have deep consequences in terms of America’s standing in the world. They wrote an open letter to Obama voicing their concerns.

Apollo 13 astronaut Jim Lovell, who signed the letter with Armstrong, told Fox News he believes Obama’s plan is “short-sighted.”

“We’re going to be a third-rate nation. China and Russia are going to be premier,” he said.

This is a profoundly bad and dangerous idea. China and Russia are not our friends, they never have been and never will be. But the Obama administration knows this, as have every administration before him. I am very afraid for this country.

Obama to Limit Potential Uses of Nuclear Weapons

From FNC:

The United States will pledge not to use nuclear weapons against most non-nuclear countries — no matter what they use against us — but will keep “all options” on the table for nations like North Korea and Iran, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday.

This man is extremely STUPID! This makes it more likely that we will be attacked! There was no need for this statement, even if you “feel” this way you don’t say it in public!

The declaration came out of the Obama administration’s revised nuclear policy, under which the United States is committing not to develop or test any new nuclear weapons. The document is aimed at leading the world in reducing nuclear stockpiles, though some are concerned the country could put itself in danger if others don’t follow.

Gates said Tuesday the administration reserves the right to make “adjustments” to the policy and that the document doesn’t quite declare that the United States will never be the first to use a nuclear weapon.

Well, if you are not going to use it even if attacked, why would they believe you would use it first?

The Obama administration plans to urge Russia to return to the bargaining table following Senate ratification of the new START arms reduction treaty, to be signed by Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Prague on Thursday.

Gordon Chang, author of “Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes on the World,” called the policy announced Tuesday a “dramatic departure” and said it will work only if other nuclear states follow the U.S. lead.

“We could end up in sort of a … situation of strategic inferiority, because everyone else is improving and we’re not doing anything,” he said.

Gee, you think? Russia has allot more missiles than we do, something like 10 times, so we better not be doing it evenly or it is just stupid. Mutually assured destruction has worked quite well, notice no one has used a nuke yet. So, why mess with something that works.

U.S. to Reveal Euro Missile Defense Plan

From the AP:

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration appears likely to adopt a compromise European missile defense plan that shelves many of the components that have been a major irritant in relations with Russia, with an announcement expected Thursday.

Obama’s top military adviser, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the administration was “very close” to the end of a seven-month review of a missile defense shield proposal, an idea that was promoted by the George W. Bush administration. Mullen would not divulge its results.

President Barack Obama faces the dilemma of either setting back the gradual progress toward repairing relations with Russia or disappointing two key NATO allies that agreed to host components of the planned system.

Administration officials were expected to brief lawmakers and government officials in Poland and the Czech Republic on results of the review on Thursday, according to an administration official and a congressional aide. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates scheduled a news conference Thursday with a top military leader, Marine Gen. James Cartwright, who has been a point man on the technical challenge of arraying missiles and interceptors to defend against long-range missiles that an aggressor such as Iran might lob at the U.S. or its allies. Two military officials said the news conference would concern the missile defense plans.

Obama took office undecided about whether to continue to press for the European system and said he would study it. His administration never sounded enthusiastic about the plan, and European allies have been preparing for an announcement that the White House would not complete the shield as designed.

Again My President Obama is selling our national sovereignty down the tubes. Yea, Yea, Yea!

Giving China help with cyber warfare

I know I have said this many times before, China is not our friend.

From WorldNetDaily::

The Obama administration is considering easing U.S. export controls to China even though the director for national intelligence is warning about Chinese cyber warfare threats to U.S. military information systems. In addition, there are increasing reports of Chinese military buildup to match U.S. capabilities, according to a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

The one group jubilant over the White House decision to undertake yet another comprehensive review of U.S. export control laws toward China is the U.S. business community.

“The U.S. has one of the most robust export control systems in the world,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said last week. “But it is rooted in the Cold War era of over 50 years ago and must be updated to address the threats we face today and the changing economic and technological landscape.”

Bill Reinsch, president of the National Foreign Trade Council and a former U.S. Commerce under secretary who was in charge of export controls, applauded the White House initiative. Through the NFTC, the Coalition for Security and Competitiveness, or CSC, similarly supported the initiative.

China has already tried dipping their toes in this water. Russia brought down an entire country using these techniques. Yea, and I know, I’m on the internet now.

Defense Officials: Russian Subs Patrolling off East Coast of United States

I used to get all excited and worried about the revelations “we the people are pieced- mealed”, on a daily basis. But, I have decided to “wonder why” instead. Why, is this coming out now? Why are we hearing about this now? Why do we need to pay attention? Any answers?

From Fox News:

WASHINGTON — Two nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines have been patrolling in international waters off the East Coast for several days, in activity reminiscent of the Cold War, defense officials said Tuesday.

U.S. Northern Command would not comment on the Russian submarines’ movement. But in a prepared statement, Northern Command spokesman Michael Kucharek acknowledged the patrols and said the U.S. has been monitoring the two submarines.

Two senior U.S. officials, however, said the submarines had been patrolling several hundred miles off the coast and so far had done nothing to provoke U.S. military concerns. The officials provided details on condition of anonymity in order to discuss intelligence reports.

Notice there is not much more to the story; if you read the rest of the article. Again, why is that?

Meet NASA’s Real-Life Dr. McCoy

From Space.com:

He may not be zooming through space at warp speed on the Starship Enterprise, but astronaut Michael Barratt is the closest thing to a real-life Dr. McCoy aboard the International Space Station.

The doctor-turned-astronaut is spending more than half a year living 220 miles (354 km) above Earth as the space station’s chief medical officer

I know this is coming out because of the new Star Trek movie, but I think it’s a neat story. I like Space.com a lot and use it for our radio show. I just love how everything science fiction becomes reality in one shape or form. Besides, he sounds like a smart accomplished man.

Barratt should be ready. He literally helped write the textbook on spaceflight medicine – “Principles of Clinical Medicine for Space Flight” – and is the associate editor for space medicine for the journal Aviation, Space and Environmental Medicine.

A veteran of mountaineer and diver, Barratt spent nine years as a ground-based NASA medical officer and flight surgeon before deciding he wanted to experience the effects of spaceflight for himself. Space medicine, after all, includes the effects of high altitude and pressure on the human body, he added.
