Newly discovered dinosaur was king of the giants
SEPTEMBER 4, 2014, 6:47 PM|A new species of dinosaur was unveiled in Philadelphia Thursday. Weighing more than a Boeing 737, and with a neck that stretched two stories into the air, it was the largest creature ever to walk the earth. Don Dahler reports.

The Google Lunar Xprize: The world's next great space race

2 Comments Shares Tweets Stumble Email More +
This is the first in a series of reports by CNET Editor at Large Tim Stevens, who is traveling around the world to track the progress of teams competing for the Google Lunar XPrize.

When innovation stalls, sometimes it just needs a little push. A bit of force applied in the right direction and then, momentum imparted, the rest takes care of itself. That push can come from many sources, but one tends to be the most effective: money.

It was a monetary prize that spurred Charles Lindbergh to strap into the Spirit of St. Louis and become the first to cross the Atlantic in one shot. It was a monetary prize that encouraged Scaled Composites to build SpaceShipOne, ultimately spawning Virgin Galactic. And, next year, it will be a monetary prize that puts the first non-government-funded rover on the moon. Or, possibly, multiple rovers.

The new competition is called the Google Lunar Xprize. And, like the Ansari Xprize from a decade ago that greatly accelerated the race toward commercial space travel, this new competition is already bringing the same increase in pace to lunar surveying and exploration. Along the way, it's giving the members of 18 independent teams around the world the challenge and opportunity of a lifetime.

Creating an Xprize

Xprize calls itself an "innovation engine." Its website states: "Rather than throw money at a problem, we incentivize the solution and challenge the world to solve it." Its first competition was the Ansari Xprize, and the problem was: how do we kickstart the commercial space industry? Scaled Composites won in 2004 at the Mojave Air and Space Port, a $10 million check handed over after the team launched its craft to the edge of space twice within the span of two weeks.

That's so far been the organization's most famous competition, but there have been dozens more, typically funded by charitable individuals or organizations. In 2010, the Very Light Car won the Progressive Insurance Automotive Xprize, a $5 million award for the first car to manage more than 100 miles per gallon. However, that car still had to be built in such a way that would ultimately allow for its eventual mass-production. A year later, Elastec/American Marine won the $1 million Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup Xchallenge by developing technology that skims oil from the surface of the ocean three times faster than the previous best solution to the problem.

It was back in 2007 that the organization introduced the Google Lunar Xprize, a $30 million purse of prizes for the first independent team to land a rover on the moon and move 500 meters or more across the lunar surface, all while sending back high-definition video to those of us still stuck on Earth. It's been nearly seven years and, finally, we're almost ready for launch.

No, honey, I was referring to you being humiliated, not scared... that was the other guy you're worried about... You see, Flo, ever since you went down in flames back in 1865, well, my people have heaped abuse upon your people for what looks to us as a kind of Hatfield McCoy Hillbilly thingy... The straw hats, dirty bare feet, l'il retarded kids runnin' everywhere with l'il rudimentary banjos, speech that sounds like you got a big ball of shit and a box of marbles in your mouth, and seven scrawny dogs under the shaky wooden piers of your shotgun shack, which was weatherproofed by havin' pages of the Montgomery Ward catalog tacked up all over the walls inside. You got the room with the girdles on it, I'll bet...
And, for me, that's like... um... "shootin' flies off'n a shitwall," whatever in the hell that means? You eat brown food, I mean literally food that's all brown, vegetables that have been cooked so long they're indistinguishable from the packed earthen floor. When your 7 white kids got themselves a job down at the chicken plant you was sooo happy you nearly sobered up for a week or so... washed the window in the "trailer," That wuz a klever idea Billy Joe Bob had about rentin' one of them shippin' containers from over in Big Creek an' jus' movin' into thet for $60 a month... now that's how you save some REAL money... gettin' the internet was a bitch, had to steal nearly a mile of coax but the new house bein' all steel like it is the TV picks up shows from Asia... course they somewhat scrambled but sometimes me an' Billy Joe Dean we jus' say stuff an' pretend we're Chinee....
You bein' in Kentucky an' all, Flo, makes you an irresistible target for the likes of me... cause I'm one'a those pointy-headed liberals George warned you about. To me, Flo, you're like one of those giant plastic bubbles they sell at Walmart at Christmas... you know, the ones with the blow-up snow men and reindeers inside? Now there was that l'il incident with Jimmy Jean Beth, when she got so drunk an' took Bubba's service revolver and shot all the "reindeers," but, hey, it wuz Christmas...
Now, you see, Flo? That's what I meant by "tread carefully".... I'm the very last guy you want focused on you because you're shit on my shoe to me, sticky... but disposable... But, like every other southerner on God's brown earth, you don't ever remember your place... don't know how to be polite to your betters. Now you've gone and made it my job to remind you every time I see your smilin' toothless face in the same squalid, shapeless house dress you wear to the AA meetin's over at Squirrel Run First Baptist Church an' Discount House o' Religion.
Flo?... Flo?... see? It don't matter who or what you actually are or whether you actually live in a shipping container in your uncle's back yard... I'm so good with words folk'll just automatically picture you this way every time they see your name from now on... they can't help it. Even your friends, honey.... and the WORST part is, Flo, I'm probably right...

U.S. Air Force's secret X-37B space plane passes 600 days in orbit

The U.S. Air Force's mysterious unmanned space plane has winged beyond 600 days in orbit on a classified military mission that seems to have no end.

The X-37B space plane is carrying out the Orbital Test Vehicle-3 (OTV-3) mission, a long-duration cruise that marks the third flight for the unpiloted Air Force spaceflight program.

The Air Force launched the miniature space shuttle into orbit on Dec. 11, 2012 using an expendable Atlas 5 rocket. By Sept. 1, the space plane had spent 630 days in orbit. That's one year, eight months, 22 days and counting, to be exact.

"The Air Force continues to push the envelope of the solar-powered X-37B capabilities," said Joan Johnson-Freese, a professor of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island.[Amateur Skywatcher Spots X-37B Space Plane (Video)]

The reusable X-37B looks like a mini version of NASA's now-retired space shuttle. This space plane is 29 feet (8.8 meters) long and 9.5 feet (2.9 m) tall, and has a wingspan of nearly 15 feet (4.6 m).

The X-37B's payload bay is the size of a pickup truck bed. In contrast, NASA's space shuttle payload bay could fit two X-37B space planes comfortably inside. At liftoff, the X-37B space plane weighs 11,000 lbs.(4,990 kilograms).

The key to the X-37B's longevity in space rests with its ability to use solar panels to generate power., the solar panels extend the craft's longevity.[How the X-37B Space Plane Works (Infographic)]

"While far above the longevity of any other reusable spacecraft, it is far below that of most U.S. satellites, which are built to last for years, even decades," Johnson-Freese told Space.com . "That certainly confirms the broad, officially stated goal of the X-37B as a test bed vehicle."

It's logical to assume that the classified payloads tucked inside the X-37B include new sensors and satellite hardware that will be tested, Johnson-Freese said. If so, then the more time on orbit, the more testing that can be done, she said.

"While the classified nature of the X-37B has raised some concerns about its intended operational purposes, technically, the program must be commended for doing something new ... and successfully," Johnson-Freese said.

Brings to mind the 1st Trumpet Warning - http://biblehub.com/kjv/revelation/8.htm .

I hope we are aware by now, what complete liars and spinners the World's 'elite'/leadership are. We should also be aware that 'they' and the one they follow and worship/obey as God, will not hesitate to attempt to cover up, for as long as they possibly can, the Last Trumpet Warning Events of "The Revelation Jesus Christ which GOD gave Him to show..." with the most outrageous lies and spin yet, in an attempt to prevent humanity from recognizing them and be caught unprepared...that's their god's - http://biblehub.com/revelation/12-9.htm , real goal whether 'they' realize it or not due to their 'blinding' greed and lust for control - http://biblehub.com/nlt/revelation/18.htm .
