NASA to test ‘space lasers’ with latest launch
Sunday marks the day that humanity takes one step closer to the science-fiction realm with space lasers. An American aerospace firm is aiming to create 200 megabits per second (Mbps) connections in space using satellites equipped with lasers.

If successful, this new tech could pave the way for networks of satellite-connected devices to send data, which will be useful for military, tech, and meteorological agencies, to and from space via laser connections. The launch of the new satellites is scheduled for 7:14am ET on Sunday from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The company, Orbital ATK, will send its Cygnus spacecraft, complete with NanoRacks CubeSats satellites, to the International Space Station. NASA is hoping that the mission will highlight the importance of small sensor spacecraft to the future of space exploration.

From some of the videos available on youtube, they were testing them by lighting fires in Calif.  Those wildfire 'anomolies' are very suspicious, and points to the very real possibility that they already have these new weapons in their arsenals, and Lord knows what else.  Not sure what to do about it though.  Share what we know, and be kind to each other.

Similair suspicions about the Port Hills Fire here in Christchurch.

Mr Armstrong and Mr Aldrin will be diluted if space lasers prove any more competent to dodge round the van Allen belt radiation that stopped their Apollo mission in its 1969 trax....

Are you saying Mike Rose that we never went to the moon?  Say it ain't so!  Could it be that we're living in an enclosed system?  Face it folks, we've been lied to about everything, even what this place is!

Flags flapping in the airless lunar wind, zero lunar dust on the gold-foil covering the module=ar feet resting ever-so-gently on lunar ground that was completely undisturbed after the module's eleventeen-G reverse-rocket descent .... we don't need to place that much extra doubt after the studio lighting crashed on the astronaut's head as he tumbled down the ladder in Nevada....
...and just to think in the Last Century I was so gullible, I would never have questioned the Lunatic Landing video if it weren't for Dubya inventing the zioNAZI myth about arab flight-school dropouts miraculously pointing jetliners at vertiginously-impossible velocities towards the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001.
No wonder foreign ships can sneak into Spanish ports carrying the Spanish flag aloft.
Youtube wasn't around 200 years ago, or Spanish sailors might not have been fooled so easily by the fracking false flags fluttering on french ships.

Symbolism: Antares is one of the Royal stars aka Watchers. It is also the heart of Scorpio, the 11th month, formally the 9th month. 9-11
