Kessler Syndrome

The Kessler Syndrome:
Space junk particles collide along the path of their orbit creating more debris, thus, causing more harm to satellites & rockets.

How Bloody Outrageous !!!  Who should be held accountable ?  China ? America ? Russia ? UK ? Japan ? India ? Luxemburg ? Elon Musk ?

Is it not disgraceful enough that us humans are destroying our planet with junk, waste and overuse of our resources, that we, in the name of science and technology, are destroying the space around our planet too, suffocating it with millions of space junk particles, which pose a great risk of damaging vital satellite equipment and our international space station.

Why are those countries responsible for placing things in space not being held accountable for removing these items ?

How Space Junk Works | HowStuffWorks

The NASA Orbital Debris Space Program Office lists some of these objects to be samples of:

  • Derelict (abandoned) spacecraft
  • Stages of launch vehicles
  • Solid rocket motor effluents
  • Frozen Coolants
  • Dust and paint particles
  • Nuts, bolts and screws
  • Broken bits of metals
  • Lens caps, screwdrivers and garbage bags

There is an estimated 170 million bits of junk in space and 5774 satellites that are currently orbiting the earth, with only 2666 of those satellites operational and an Elon Musk Red Tesla Roadster.  With these smaller objects ranging in size from 1-2 millimetres to 4 inches and travelling around the Earth at over 27,359 km per hour, these fragments acting like stray bullets, making collisions inevitable. A tiny fleck of paint can deliver an impact punch, equivalent to a 550 pound object moving at 97 km per hour.

There have already been two collisions between satellites in 1996 and 2009 and then without consequence, China took it upon themselves in 2007 to stage an anti-sat weapon test that used a missile to destroy an old weather satellite, which added over 3,000 pieces of space junk debris into orbit. Objects orbiting below 600 km can be there for several years before re-entering into the Earth’s atmosphere.  Objects above 1,000 km can stay in orbit for centuries.

The United Nations set up The Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) 1959 to govern the exploration and peaceful use of space to benefit of all humanity, which created five treaties, five principles and two committees, the Scientific and Technical Subcommittee, and the Legal Subcommittee, so why are these establishments not doing their best to control and prosecute these countries and governments for their part in adding to the accumulation of ‘space junk‘ that is chocking our planets orbits ?

Crimes Against Humanity
Where Are Our Children ?

14th April 2014, the beginning of any parents nightmare. Chibok in Borneo State Nigeria. 214 school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram, the extremist terrorist group based in north eastern Nigeria. 11th December 2020. Kankara, North Western Katsina State, Nigeria, approximately 333 school boys were kidnapped when gunmen attacked their secondary school. Guess who has claimed responsibility once again? Boko Haram the Islamic group  who’s name means “Western education is forbidden”

The sick twisted mindsets of these disgusting bastards, using innocent children to play with, like porn’s in their, so called fantasy games of ‘Religion, Love, Power, War and Propaganda’. You have to ask yourself how and why is this happening? Tens of thousands of people have been killed in attacks by this group as they increasingly target civilians, then retreat like dogs back to the mountainous areas from which they began.

Chibok schoolgirls kidnapping

How? in a region where this apparently goes on way to often, can criminal gangs continuously get away with robbing and kidnapping innocent people for ransom. A ransom that all to often, is never paid or traded for with other agendas in play. Does the Nigerian Government not give a dam or do they just not see their citizens as a valuable asset to the future of their country,  to make more of an effort for them? Is the Government really at all interested in their fate?

Nigeria is blessed with rich natural resources, such as, Diamonds, Gold, Crude Oil, Coal and yet with all these money making resources, the government has still in this century, an inability to supply ongoing adequate clean drinking supplies for its citizens, has mass poverty and scarce availability to basic resources, so its a little understandable that ensuring the safety of its citizens comes second best against these brutal militant thugs. The basic human rights of these people are stripped and laid bare for the taking. Although Nigerian soldiers and intelligence officers are combing the forests in search of the missing school children, more needs to be done.

Lack of drinking water

Its been 6 years since the girls were taken from their school. Although almost half have escaped, been rescued by Nigerian Military forces or freed, there are still at least 100 girls missing. Some who had escaped claimed their teachers on that fateful day, just left them and didn’t try to help.

What is the fate for these innocent boys and girls? Will they be rescued? Will they escape? or will they just never return? The families are worried that their children will be brainwashed and held for years, raped, beaten and killed and all the Nigerian president can do is make statements that blame parents for not supplying enough information about their children as to one of the reason for why they cannot be rescued. Villages are frightened, afraid to leave their homes, a sanctuary that should be a safe place, but instead is a target for murder, pillage and abuse.

The full forces of the law, security and military should be standing up for these citizens, forced into jungle camps, used in propaganda videos, assaulted into sex slavery, forced to marry their kidnappers and beaten into joining this elite group of terrorists, all in the name of Islam, using terrorist plots to uphold its practices.

Education Minister Obiageli Ezekwesili claims that their soldiers are either underpaid or not paid for weeks, untrained, have poor discipline, low moral and hold dilapidated equipment. Some Generals have even come under investigation into selling arms to Boko Haram. The minister has quoted “They are incapable of eliminating these criminals. On the contrary, corrupt officers are even collaborating with them.”

Boko Haram Continues to Terrorize

When will the United Nations uphold its own laws on freedom and rights, if this government fails to do so?

This war on humanity needs to stop. Please, bring back our children !!

Sleeping With 1000 Ants 🐜
Chapter 1 Early Years

April 1970, 6 months old. My earliest memory. Sitting on a cane chair out the front of my grandmother’s house. Standing alongside me was my brother Wayne, 5 years my senior, ready for a photo with his little sister. “kneel down next to your sister” my mother said, “and put down that knife!”. I remember it clear as day. Even though i was very young, it was my first recognition of things to come. I was told later in life, he wanted to stab me with that knife. Wanting a snapshot with his sister was the last thing on his mind, thoughts of jealousy and hurt. I was the reminder as years went on that he was left behind, raised by his grandparents, while I ended up with mum.

Our mother had been in and out of our lives, with work taking priority. I was nicknamed ‘ Ugly’ and like my brother, left in the hands of our grandparents, Until my mother met Marcello. An Italian, who migrated here on a ship to Sydney Town, to be with his sister and brother-in-law. He found work building and dismantling television towers around New South Wales and the ACT Australian Capital Territory with Telecom Australia. That’s how he met my mother.
We set off, traveling with a caravan, following Marcellos work from town to town. Wayne was never with us, he stayed behind. I remember I asked about him when I was younger. Mum’s answer was, he didn’t want to come, he was allowed to make his own choice to stay and he had to go to school. Now I get that if you were a teenager but Wayne was 5 years old, big choices to way on the shoulders of a little man.

I never really liked Marcello, but never knew at the time, that he wasn’t my real father. I just didn’t feel comfortable around him, something just didn’t gel. I felt closer to my God Parents, Gordan and Laura, my mother’s brother and sister-in-law, who seemed to treat me just like their own. Little did I know that Gordan couldn’t have children, so I got all the attention when we were in town, which was about every 6 months. At the age of three, I used to wander off and hide in the store clothing racks, watching hidden, as my mother frantically looked for me.  I was often found in the creek beds behind caravan parks that we were staying in, wandering alone enjoying the peace and quiet of nature. Marcello’s antics frightened me. I never really felt safe. He was lucid, demanding, and demeaning. I guess it was his nature, his make-up, his culture. My mother was timid, undermined, and controlled. I remember sitting in my car seat, mum crying, Marcello telling her to “just shut up!”, water pouring in under the doors of the old Holden. He was traveling through a flooded road towing the van, knowing he knew it all and in his eyes, never made a wrong decision.

I was now 5. We had been in Canberra ACT where Marcello’s job this month had been dismantling a television tower down on the ridge. I remember spending afternoons on site with him and my mother, running up and down the bush roads whilst he worked. One afternoon, there was an accident. It was Marcello. He was dismantling the old tower, he was about halfway up the construction whilst the other worker was lower to the ground. The construction fell, taking Macello with it. The other worker was able to jump free, but Marcello was too high. He landed in a small creek bed, lucky to be alive. For the second time in his life, he cheated death but didn’t come out unscathed. Marcello had broken ribs, a damaged sternum, back, and legs, spending weeks in recovery, not knowing if he would work again. That’s when we returned to my mother’s home. ‘The Gully’, where we ended up settling into the local caravan park in the main town, about 15 minutes drive away, where I was to start school. Wayne stayed permanently with our grandparents. Our relationship was forever estranged. I now felt like an intruder in his life, but to me he was someone I always looked up to and admired, for he, I saw, had the comfort of real family and I felt so alone.

“R U OK ?”

It’s interesting that most of us think, at first glance, that, most disturbing comments or actions that we observe are simply, black and white. They are hypocritical, nasty, uncaring, or ignorant.
It’s not until you think deeper about one’s behaviour, that maybe, not all the time, that things could be not ok.
Do we ask? or do we judge first?
A person’s reaction or trigger to past trauma can be brought forward for any number of reasons. An event, a comment, a sound or a smell.
I guess before we jump in heads blazing, to judge someone on their actions or comments, is to stop and think for a second, ” is this a reaction to past trauma?”. In some cases, I guess it very well could be.
So, should we simply be asking, ” R U OK ?”.
Maybe for some people its a way to, try and be herd, to make a point, or let off some steam. We just have to read between the lines or get beyond someone’s frustration. A conversation could change somebody’s life.
September, has been our “R U OK ? ” month. We all need to learn to Ask, Listen, Encourage & Check-In with people. Just reach out if you feel its warranted. Maybe someone is just struggling with life and needs a friend.

“R U OK ?”

 

 

International Day Against Nuclear Tests 29th August

Since July 16, 1945, there have been  2,056 nuclear test explosions including places like including Lop Nor in China, The Pacific Atolls, Nevada, Algeria, Western Australia, The South Atlantic, Kazakhstan and Russia, just to name a few. A large number of the tests were detonated in the atmosphere and underground. These nuclear blasts vented radioactive material into the atmosphere and contaminated our soils.

The United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan near the end of World War II. One on Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 and another on Nagasaki on 9 August. These two bombs killed almost 200,000 Japanese citizens, with subsequent deaths following from radiation exposure.
Between 1946  – 1949, the United States detonated another six bombs and the Soviet Union on 29 August 1949.
On 3 October 1952, the United Kingdom conducted a test at the Montebello Islands in Western Australia then later at Christmas Island and in the Pacific Ocean.
Between 1955 to 1989, there was an average of 55  nuclear tests year. In 1962,  178 tests and in the second half of the 1980s there were as many as 174 detonations.
Up until 27 January 1996, France conducted 210 nuclear tests in French Polynesia, then India and Pakistan between 1998 and 2013.
In this century, North Korea conducted tests between the 9th October 2006 – 3rd September 2017.

24 September 1996 the ‘Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty’ was formed. The Soviet Union, France, The United Kingdom, China and The United States signing the treaty with 66 other countries to establish a global alarm system to monitor the underground, the atmosphere, and under-waters for any signs of nuclear explosions and undertakings, not to, develop, test, produce, acquire, possess, stockpile, or threaten to use nuclear weapons.

The “International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons” on September 26th is to see nuclear disarmament and the total elimination of nuclear weapons through a collaboration of international efforts. By supporting the ‘Proposal for Nuclear Disarmament’, our civil society can help secure a healthier future for ourselves and our planet.
