Here's an insightful
analysis of USAF Space Command and circumstantial
evidence that it has advanced space capabilities far
beyond the technology possessed by NASA. This helps
confirm what Gary McKinnon discovered when
hacking into NASA and Pentagon computers. He claims he
was able to eventually hack his way into the Space
Command computers where he discovered "a list of
officers' names" he said were "under the heading 'Non-Terrestrial
McKinnon also spoke of
"Fleet to Fleet transfers". For his efforts in revealing
classified information, McKinnon has been fighting
extradition charges where he would be imprisoned in the
U.S. for performing a massive breach of security.

McKinnon's claims, go to:
As the article below implies, Space Command does
have capabilities to deploy in space to protect NASA's
Space Shuttle and the International Space Station from
debris and other space hazards. As Twietmeyer
claims, Space Command can only do this if it has
advanced propulsion systems and advanced weapons such as
particle beams that allow it to quickly respond to such
USAF Space Command - who are they
and what functions do they perform?
Now 25 years old, the agency it
was formed it was announced with little fanfare. Since then, it has
made all the noise of a church mouse stomping around on a padded
carpet. We have heard virtually nothing about the organization in
the media over all these 25 years.
For those of us who truly understand Uncle's megalomaniac mentality,
the need for his people and organizations to brag in one form or
another of their accomplishments is well known. This even applies to
Uncle's super-secret, supposedly non-existent organizations.
The recent "news" that Uncle's people are listening to various forms
of communications comes as no surprise after all, this capability
dates back many decades. Anything that Uncle tells claims he wants
to start doing, means he's ALREADY been doing it for a very long
time - sometimes for more than a generation.
Surprisingly, the US Space Command has an extensive web page
bragging about the unclassified portion of their work. But
classified projects will never appear on that website. Sometimes to
understand what Uncle is doing, you have to look at BOTH what he
states and what he doesn't state simultaneously. You also have to
validate the statements which are made, since lying is commonplace
for "National Security."
Here is a photo of a group who received

Human Spaceflight Support Team for its exceptional support in
keeping the space shuttle, International Space Station and its
crews safe from the dangers of orbital debris, spacecraft
collisions and other inherent hazards of orbit operations.

At first glance, this photo looks like
another feel good "Atta-boy!" award to give them all a pat on the
I call your attention to the interesting statement above for
their picture caption,
"exceptional support in keeping the
space shuttle, International Space Station and its crews safe
from the dangers of orbital debris, spacecraft collisions and
other inherent hazards of orbit operations."
So just HOW did they keep everyone in
It's important to note that neither the Space Station
nor the Space Shuttle can ever make large orbital corrections. Only
small changes or corrections are possible, and can often require
more than one orbit to have a noticeable effect. Propulsion systems
used to maintain correct orbit are simply small thrusters.
NASA has already stated in at least one
"If the shuttle was to burn all the
fuel it has at one time, it could only make an orbital change of
Why is this so?
Consider what the two
solid fuel boosters and the liquid fueled engines are that put the
shuttle into orbit. Each solid fuel booster produces 1.2 million
pounds of thrust. This powerful momentum (the result of great mass)
must be overcome to make large orbital changes. Simple thrusters
cannot overcome that massive momentum imparted to the vehicle during
the launch phase.
Therefore, maneuvering around a space object in
the Shuttle's path is basically impossible. The same velocity was
also imparted to the space station when it was launched in sections
from the Shuttle payload bay, too.
If this wasn't so, the Shuttle could
never match velocity and orbit to mate with the Space Station.
And although an object in orbit is weightless in space, it still has
the same mass as it did on Earth. Though related to one another,
weight and mass are two different units of measure. So just HOW did
the quiet US Space Command group protect spacecraft and the
space-station from collisions and "other inherent hazards?" What
does all this mean?
If the Space Command was to call NASA
and warn them saying something like,
"We thought you would like to know
that a dead 10 ton weather satellite that didn't reach orbit, is
in the orbital path of your space station. You might want to
shift your Shuttle to a different orbital trajectory."
What could NASA do about it? Not a
Now this is where things start to get interesting.
NASA has a space junk tracking system dating back to at least the
days of the Apollo missions.
A late friend of mine named Jerry was a
former science curriculum director for a school district, a former
Manhattan Project worker and an amateur astronomer who also worked
Project Moonwatch back in the 1960s and early 1970s.
get-away recreation farm land down in the southern tier of NY State
- high atop a place called Pennsylvania Mountain (about 40 miles
north of PA. near Hornell, NY.)
Jerry was part of a volunteer network of amateur astronomers around
the United States who tracked space junk for NASA during the days of
the Apollo missions. He used a massive, old Navy surplus battle ship
anti-aircraft gun mount anchored in concrete to hold his telescope.
Those working in project Moonwatch also needed the ability to do
spherical trigonometry (not fun without a computer) to track the
He started by getting a fix on several
reference stars to determine his exact altitude, and he sent this
data into the Smithsonian who was managing Moonwatch at the time.
They performed the required calculations to give him the exact
height of his location, which was not far from the flattened top of
the mountain. This figure was later used in calculations to track
Amateur astronomers like Jerry all across America would scan the sky
at night, calculate the location in the sky of an object and note
the exact time using the shortwave time station WWV. This station is
still broadcasting from Ft. Collins, CO. It also transmits the
precision 750 KHz radio transmissions used by self- adjusting
watches and clocks which are commonplace today.
Moonwatch volunteers would send in this
information and government computers would then plot the orbits of
There were already about 18,000 pieces of junk in orbit
back in the late 1960s. This would include anything such as
discarded boosters that didn't fall to Earth, huge inter-stage
booster rings which filled the open space between rocket booster
stages, heat shield foil, dead satellites, probes, etc
smallest pieces of orbiting junk could be lethal to Apollo missions
because of the high velocities involved.
Moonwatch was later discontinued when satellites and other
government surveillance of the skies was established. In fact, the
Moonwatch program was the inspiration for the structure of my
website www.data4science.net, where we encourage people to become
involved in scientific exploration in various areas too numerous to
mention here. Is there a rule that exploration must be relegated
only to an elite group of scientists?
I think not, as do hundreds of
volunteer members at Data4Science.net.
Let's get back to the US Space Command, which is part of the US Air
Force. The agency claims to have prevented space junk collisions in
space. The question remains, HOW can they do it? It is known that
the Space Command has advanced secret spacecraft to exit and
re-enter the atmosphere without using rocket technology. This would
include but not be limited to vehicles such as the TR-3 made by
Lockheed, or also called the black triangle, Black Manta, etc..
Spacecraft with these capabilities would
drive NASA engineers into insane jealousy if they knew about it.
Undoubtedly, these triangles must be armed with particle beam or
quantum weaponry, chemical lasers or electrically excited reactor
powered lasers and other weaponry. These weapons could also be used
to destroy objects in the path of the space station or space
shuttle. There were several eyewitness reports of hovering black
triangles firing at targets in Iraq during the early days of the
There is a massive anti-gravity energy
field surrounding these vehicles which interferes with all
electronic devices, making it unlikely anyone could ever get images
of them. War has historically been the best proving ground for all
In the UK, the press and media are forbidden under the
UK Secrets Act from covering or reporting on sightings of black
triangles. That act speaks volumes about whether or not black
triangles exist. The TR-3 has been in service since the mid-1990's,
and NASA's space program is now nothing more than on-going
entertainment (theater) to distract the public.
The question is when will the world be officially be told about
Probably not until something else far superior comes
along. This also means that anything NASA does in space is
redundant, obsolete and an out-right annual waste of billions of
dollars. Of course, their testing of fixed and rotor wing aircraft
will always be an important function to perform which is the
"Aeronautics" part of the organization's title. Only those at the
very top of the organization would be privy to knowledge of advanced
space travel, if at all.
US Space Command's high technology procurements are rarely listed in
the government's daily procurement publication Commerce Business
Daily whenever I've checked it in the past.
THE US SPACE COMMAND POLICY
My comments are enclosed in [ ].
The United States rejects any claims
to sovereignty by any nation over outer space or celestial
bodies, or any portion thereof, and rejects any limitations on
the fundamental right of the United States to operate in and
acquire data from space.
The United States considers space
capabilities - including the ground and space segments and
supporting links - vital to its national interests. Consistent
with this policy, the United States will: preserve its rights,
capabilities, and freedom of action in space; dissuade or deter
others from either impeding those rights or developing
capabilities intended to do so; take those actions necessary to
protect its space capabilities; respond to interference; and
deny, if necessary, adversaries the use of space capabilities
hostile to U.S. national interests.
[Note the term to deny adversaries the use of space and the
implication of control of space by the US.]
The United States will oppose the
development of new legal regimes or other restrictions that seek
to prohibit or limit U.S. access to or use of space. Proposed
arms control agreements or restrictions must not impair the
rights of the United States to conduct research, development,
testing, and operations or other activities in space for U.S.
Strengthen the nation's space
leadership and ensure that space capabilities are available in
time to further U.S. national security, homeland security, and
foreign policy objectives. Enable unhindered U.S. operations in
and through space to defend our interests there; Implement and

Note that these are just a few excerpts
the unclassified portion of the US Space Command policy which
is publicly available.
Is there anything this ultra-quiet organization might be doing which
is indirectly implied? Most likely the defense of Earth from outside
threats perhaps the same threats Ronald Reagan referred in his UN
speech when he was president.
