“The balloons are being sent up by teams of high school and college students from across the US as part of the Eclipse Ballooning Project, led by Angela Des Jardins of Montana State University. Last week, Smith finished mailing the bacteria — which are not dangerous for people or the environment — to the student groups. (Only 34 of the balloons will carry the bacteria.) The microorganisms are dried onto the surface of two metal cards the size of a dog tag.
One card will fly to the stratosphere, while one will remain on the ground to function as a control group. On eclipse day, the balloons will launch every 15 minutes or so from states that are in the path of the Moon’s shadow, Des Jardins says. They’ll fly for about two hours, reaching the stratosphere and eventually popping because of the pressure drop. Once they’re back on the ground (a parachute will slow down descent), the students will track them by GPS, recover the metal tags, and mail them back to NASA.”
The bacteria is a strain called Paenibacillus xerothermodurans, an allegedly resilient bacteria that was discovered outside a spacecraft assembly facility at the Kennedy Space Center in 1973.
While it’s convenient that the NASA effort was allegedly started by students working with Montana State University, the premise doesn’t make sense. The explanation is enough to arouse suspicion.
Why would NASA claim that the Earth’s stratosphere at the time of an eclipse is so similar to Mars? It doesn’t pass as a very likely reason to me. The official line is that colder temperatures and more solar radiation in the stratosphere is similar to Mars, and that the temperature would drop further during the eclipse, but the eclipse is for such a brief moment of time, it doesn’t make sense that this would be about Mars.
Further, the US government has a long history spraying citizens with bacteria and chemicals without their consent.
Recently, NASA sprayed the stratosphere with toxic metals such as barium, openly performing a version of geoengineering as if it were some experiment and governments around the world haven’t been spraying the skies for almost 2 decades.
“This comes after a United Nations “geoengineering governance initiative” was launched, and the Carnegie Council announced the launch of a “Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative.” This comes after CIA director John Brennan proposed they spray the skies and do “solar radiation management” (SRM) to fight climate change in 2016.
Some powerful forces are pushing very hard for the ability to spray the skies with aluminum, to modify the weather and set a precedent where they can spray anything on us.
This precedent where we can’t identify what is sprayed on us could usher in a new era of chemical or biowarfare against citizens.”
So NASA and whatever power is working behind them has some interest in placing bacteria in the stratosphere during the eclipse.
In my opinion spiritually, there must be some function of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars that we don’t fully understand. As other natural systems are all in some way connected to human beings, why wouldn’t the celestial bodies also affect us?
If you think about the sizes of the Sun, Moon, and Earth, and then tried to assess the probability of the Moon and Sun being exactly the same size from Earth’s perspective, to eclipse each other at certain nodal points annually, it would most likely be impossible odds. To me it implies that the Sun and Moon perform some divine function, the impossible chance that they can be roughly the same size from our perspective and eclipse the way they do.
One could list tons of examples where celestial bodies affect animals and other life, but that could easily be researched. If this topic interests you, research away.
It’s safe to assume NASA either believes, or knows for certain that eclipses affect organisms. They either want to know how organisms are affected by eclipses, or perhaps they already know what they are doing and won’t tell us.
Either way, people would be wise to take note of government agencies’ interest in astrology and the occult.
