Yes! Yes! And Hell YES, I am using this picture again in two back-to-back posts because it is magnificent, and I WANT ONE exactly like it! It looks like planets and moons! So friggin’ coooooooool!

The 44 Years Long Voyagers:

Isaac Schultz: Voyager 1 Space Probe Is Suddenly Sending NASA Wacky Data

Voyager 1 is nearly 14.5 billion miles from Earth and continues to hurtle out of the solar system at about 38,000 miles per hour. But NASA engineers working on the 44-year-old spacecraft have recently been vexed by the probe’s articulation and control system, which is generating data that appears to be completely random.

“A mystery like this is sort of par for the course at this stage of the Voyager mission,” said Suzanne Dodd, project manager for Voyager 1 and 2 at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, in a NASA release.

Launched in 1977, Voyager 1 has been in interstellar space for nearly 10 years. Impressively, the spacecraft continues to send data back to Earth, but recently its telemetry data has been invalid; according to NASA, the data simply doesn’t match up with whatever Voyager 1’s true position and conditions might be…

FLASHBACK – Scientific American (9/12/13): Voyager 1 Finally Leaves Solar System—for Real This Time: After much debate over the murky boundary of interstellar space, a solar eruption gives scientists the evidence to say Voyager 1 has finally crossed it

Based on abrupt changes in the apparent plasma density around the spacecraft, the researchers were even able to pinpoint August 25, 2012 as the most likely date that Voyager 1 left the solar system, crossing the heliopause, the boundary between the heliosphere and the interstellar medium…

FLASHBACK – Ryan F. Mandelbaum (11/4/19): Voyager 2 Team Releases First Scientific Data on Interstellar Space

It took both Voyager probes roughly 3-4 years to reach Saturn, and they were a bit of a lighter load weight than a manned and supplied space vehicle would be. The movie “Interstellar” had a massive ship with a crew of four, plus two huge heavy robots, and tons of cargo the trip to reach Saturn took two years, with the crew going into hypersleep for the duration of the travel. That would be atleast that long, if not longer, to travel to Saturn for just an orbital look of the ringed gassy giant, obviously not land on it. So, if we subtract roughly a decade of the 44 years travel time of the Voyagers to get to the boundaries of our Sol System to interstellar space, imagine the decades it would take for a cargo-loaded manned starship to reach that destination. It would obviously involve a safe and sustainable stasis/hypersleep system for the crew to sleep the distance away. But what, exactly, would be the point when entering an even deeper darked black void where anything even remotely reachable, but not even livable? The “Interstellar” crew was actually heading for a wormhole beyond Saturn that enabled them to ‘jump’ to another galaxy or solar system within our galaxy.

Weekend Reads: No Soup for YOU!

Some of the recent democrat and leftist ‘great reveals’ of late would be enough to sink republicans or a ‘conservative’ media outlet. Instead, I have doubts much, if anything, will happen to the demo-commies, their MSM, and/or Hillary Clinton. While ‘waiting to see’ don’t hold your breath waiting for the pendulum to swing back the other way. The neo-Marxists have the deck pretty stacked with ‘by any means possible’ for our demise…

Holy Archbishop Crap-on, Nancy:

Well, it’s about time. This alleged old school “devout” Baltimore Catholic has been getting away with her serving two gods for too long…

Adam Shaw: San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone bars Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion due to abortion support: Pelosi has said she is a ‘devout’ Catholic despite her abortion advocacy

“A Catholic legislator who supports procured abortion, after knowing the teaching of the Church, commits a manifestly grave sin which is a cause of most serious scandal to others.”

Twitchy: San Fran Archbishop Cordileone bars Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion over her very public support of abortion

Rabbi Michael Barclay: A Big Mazal Tov to Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone!

The woman is a lesson in ‘separation of church and state’ hypocrisy…

Brandon Gillespie: Nancy Pelosi blasted for quoting Gospel in support of Ukraine aid bill amid American shortages: ‘Awful”Will she recite Bible verses in support of abortion?’

“The brutality of Putin is not just what he’s doing in Ukraine, but the impact that it is having on food for the world. So when you’re home thinking what is this all about, just think about, ‘When I was hungry, you fed me,’ in the Gospel of Matthew,” Pelosi said.

Her comments came as part of a speech largely centered on what the massive amount of financial aid would do for the Ukrainians amid food shortages in the country due to the war with Russia, despite shortages being felt by Americans here at home.

Yeeeeah, Nan, and Satan will quote Scripture too, also found in Matthew.

So, will Nancy, this time, call out Capitol Police and other security forces ahead of the ruling to protect the SCOTUS building that is under threat from the pro-abort left to break into the building, trash and burn it to the ground, and kill Justices?
