  1. NASA wants to buy Moon rocks from private companies

    NASA is officially in the market for Moon rocks — and it’s willing to pay any company that’s capable of scooping them up.

    Today, the space agency is putting out a call for proposals from companies, challenging them to snag small samples of rocks on the Moon’s surface. The companies will have to prove that they have collected lunar samples in some kind of small container by sending pictures and data to NASA. If satisfied, NASA pledges to purchase the samples for between $15,000 and $25,000. Eventually, NASA will retrieve the rock samples and bring them back to Earth.

    NASA ultimately wants the exchange to happen before 2024 — the agency’s current deadline for sending people back to the Moon. For companies that can pull this off, NASA will pay a small portion of the money when awarding the contract and during launch. The rest of the funds will be received when the sample is bagged. NASA says it may also make multiple awards to separate companies that can grab Moon rocks.

    $25,000 may seem like a measly amount compared to the millions of dollars it takes to send any kind of spacecraft to the Moon. But the idea behind the offer is to make a small first step toward creating a lunar marketplace, normalizing the concept of buying materials that are excavated from the Moon and other worlds in the Solar System. Such a purchase would also be the first transaction of space resources to take place off-world.

    Since 2015, it’s been official US policy that companies can own the materials that they can retrieve from space, thanks to a piece of legislation known as the Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act. The Trump administration further clarified this idea with an executive order earlier this year, encouraging companies and international partners to use the resources that they recover from space. And in May, NASA announced the creation of the Artemis Accords, a set of standardized guidelines for countries about how to explore the Moon and utilize its resources.

  2. 62 Year-Old Snake Lays ‘Miracle Eggs’

    The oldest snake in captivity – known only as 361003 – hasn’t been near a male python for two decades

    On July 23, a 62-year-old female Ball Python laid seven eggs despite having been separated from any male pythons for at least two decades.
    The manager of the St. Louis Zoo said that it is not unknown for Ball Pythons to produce without a mate, or even to reproduce asexually. Some snakes will store sperm in their bodies for ‘delayed fertilization.’ It is, however, unusual for this species of snake to lay eggs after they reach 60 years of age.
    Three of the eggs are at present in an incubator and two are being used for genetic sampling to find clues to the unusual event.
    Two of the embryos did not survive. Although the snake was given to the zoo by a private owner in 1961, it is known only by the number “361003.”

    Adrenochrome: The Elite's Drug of Choice

     

    What is Adrenochrome?

    Adrenochrome is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C9H9NO3 produced by the oxidation of adrenaline (epinephrine). The derivative carbazochrome is a hemostatic medication. Despite a similarity in chemical names, it is unrelated to chrome or chromium.

    Where have I heard of Adrenochrome?

    Aldous Huxley’s 1954 essay “The Doors of Perception”, written mostly about his experiences with mescaline, discusses the possibility that adrenochrome is a compound with similar effects to the psychedelic cactus. He has not taken it, and doesn’t know how one would obtain it, saying just that it’s spontaneously produced by the human body. He describes it as “a product of the decomposition of adrenaline”, which is, surprisingly, correct.

    There’s a brief mention of “drencrom” in the 1962 novel A Clockwork Orange, where it’s an optional addition to the cocktail (glass of milk) Moloko Plus, but probably the most cited use of the compound is in Hunter S Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It might be a novel, but many assumed it was a real thing that people really did. Thompson did not explain the adrenochrome buzz in great detail, but this probably isn’t too far from his vision.

    Why are people talking about it now?

    Adrenochrome is a popular topic in conspiracy circles: it’s a drug of the Hollywood elite, it’s addictive, it’s harvested from tortured children in Satanic rituals, they reckon. The current strain of theory is that a huge amount of celebrities have come down with Covid-19 due to a tainted batch of adrenochrome.

    Most celebrities classified as “liberal Hollywood elite” are American or British, two nations that have been struggling to manage the Covid-19 outbreak, so it’s not hugely surprising that many have contracted the virus.

    Adrenochrome harvesting, according to the conspiracies, is done by: drinking blood, heart surgery, or tapping into the brainstem. The adrenal glands are located above the kidneys, so that’s probably where you really want to look.

    Does Adrenochrome have anything to do with Covid-19?

    No.

    Are the mainstream media lying about Arenochrome? 

    Also no.

     

    The Dark Ages were rife with plague, fanaticism, and accusations that Jews secretly fed off the blood of children. In 2020, we too are beset with plague, rampant medical misinformation, and a persistent rumor that “global elites” torture children to harvest the chemical adrenochrome from their blood, which they then inject in order to stay healthy and young.

    A favourite topic of interconnected QAnon and Pizzagate conspiracy communities, so-called “adrenochrome harvesting” long predates these groups. It has, however, resurrected during the Covid-19 pandemic. Google Trends shows significant spikes in searches for adrenochrome in March and June of 2020. It’s prevalent on TikTok, Youtube, and Instagram. Reddit removed a dedicated adrenochrome subreddit on July 30. On Friday, July 31, conspiracy theorists plan to hold the first “Child Lives Matter” protest in Hollywood to “expose” child trafficking, advertising the event with references to #adrenochrome.

    The most effective conspiracy theories are built around kernels of truth. Adrenochrome is a compound that occurs in the body, but about which little scientific research has been done beyond a few studies in the mid-20th century on whether it could play a role in schizophrenia. The question transfixed the writers Aldous Huxley and Hunter S. Thompson, who were obsessed with mind-altering substances. To them, adrenochrome became a psychotropic, akin to mescaline. In his famous Doors of Perception, written just after the first adrenochrome studies, Huxley described adrenochrome as a clue that was “being systematically followed.” “The sleuths—biochemists, psychiatrists, psychologists—are on the trail,” he wrote. Biologists didn’t find much of interest.

    Nearly 20 years later, Thompson cast adrenochrome as a psychedelic that must be violently extracted from human glands in his novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The scene was immortalized in Terry Gilliam’s 1998 film; a YouTube clip of Johnny Depp’s character taking adrenochrome, which to date has more than 1.7 million views, has drawn thousands of comments referencing the conspiracy.

    Thompson is explicitly invoked in what seems to be the earliest recorded posts about adrenochrome harvesting on 4Chan’s /x/ and /pol/ boards, in 2013 and 2014 respectively. In an anti-Semitic 4chan /pol/ thread an anonymous poster linked a restricted, unsearchable video named “Jew Ritual BLOOD LIBEL Sacrifice is #ADRENOCHROME Harvesting.” Within these same online communities, Pizzagate formalized and grew in 2015–2016 before spreading to more mainstream social media.

    In 2016 this same video was shared in a Pizzagate thread about the artist Marina Abromovich and her “spirit cooking” ceremonies. The next several months saw increasingly outlandish claims online, particularly that the Pixar film Monsters Inc. was a cryptic reference to adrenochrome harvesting. As some Pizzagate adherents entered the burgeoning QAnon community in 2017, they brought the adrenochrome conspiracy with them.

    These factions expanded their audiences in 2018, citing new “investigations” and circulating the rumour that a (hoax) website sold adrenochrome in exchange for cryptocurrency. Conspiracy filmmaker Jay Myers released a video, “Adrenochrome The Elite's Secret Super Drug!” While the original video was taken down, it remains live on his backup channel and has been uploaded elsewhere online.

  4. Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) Heading our way?

    spacer.png

    I've been reading and researching the phenomena of Electromagnetic pulse.

    What if the lights go off all of a sudden? No big deal, right? Just wait for a bit until the utility company brings them back on.

    But what if it went out for a few weeks, months, or even years? Then we’d be in trouble.

    The way we live now is only possible because of our electricity grid. Take that away and we lose our transportation systems, our water filtration, the ability to live in tall buildings and so on.

    Can the power actually go out for this long? That is something that keeps people up at night who study the issue of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) warfare. Right now, we don’t know the answer. But the worst-case scenario — no power for a long, long time — is certainly possible.

    Back in the 19th century, a solar flare created a phenomenon called the Carrington Event, where energy from the sun made its way into our atmosphere and fried electronics across the earth. Telegraphs caught fire and the transatlantic cable was damaged. This was a naturally occurring EMP, something that NASA estimates have a 10% chance of happening now. Low odds, but still not reassuring ones.

    The United States and Soviets first became aware of this possibility while testing nuclear weapons during the end of the Second World War. When nuclear detonations took place atmospherically — where many tests were done — they discovered it caused power outages down below.

    Analysts also know that both Russia and China have this warfare included in their military doctrine.

    What exactly do you mean by that? Are you saying that InfoWars should automatically be shunned because certain people don't agree with it? Not that I necessarily know much about it or agree 100% with it. 😕

    I have to agree with Classicalfan626 Alex Jones can be a bit "Out There" but to be shut down by the Main Stream Media (and that is what is happening) is censorship.

     

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    SHADOW.png.d1fa6245ee7a414f626f2bc1938f0453.png

    A documentary produced by InfoWars correspondent Millie Weaver titled ShadowGate was released and went viral this week. The video has been taken off of many platforms, but continues to appear online on websites. 

    The video has been taken off of many platforms, but continues to appear online on websites including Facebook. The video covers a wide range of topics and conspiracy theories during its 1 hour and 24 minutes running time. Many of the claims are not possible to truly fact check as they are presented with anecdotal evidence, if any evidence at all—things like MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski being a government asset, the Black Lives Matter protests being incited through government psychological operations, and the Deep State working against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election with an end goal of a Pence presidency. However, a number of claims that Weaver and her sources make are contradicted by readily available evidence, and some items offered as evidence of conspiracy are misinterpreted or misrepresented.
