America is now spending huge sums to deploy the massive South Pole Telescope (SPT) in Antarctica.


The final installation will be the size of a mini-mall and will require a massive C-130 airlift effort to transport pre-assembled modules and a large staff to the most desolate, inhospitable and inaccessible region of the world.


Why? Because Planet X / Nibiru was first sighted in 1983 and this discovery spurred the USA to build the SPT — humanity's new Planet X tracker.

Amongst independent researchers like us at YOWUSA.COM and the equally committed researchers with whom we share data, the 1983 IRAS observation of Planet X / Nibiru has always been a hot topic. On a private level, we often discuss how the NASA's IRAS spacecraft first captured infrared images of it back in 1983 with the same lament. Given the lack of corroboration, how can you publish a story that can easily be shot down as a rumor? That was then.

Now we have the corroboration we've lacked for years, The South Pole Telescope (SPT). Far more powerful capable and survivable than the 1983 IRAS spacecraft and Hubble Space Telescope put together, this manned observatory will soon begin tracking Planet X / Nibiru from the pristine skies of Antarctica.

Why is America spending a massive fortune to transport this massive facility with massive C-130 airlift to the most desolate, inhospitable and inaccessible region of the world to track this massive inbound? Because this is where astronomers will find their ultimate Kodak moment and this is good news.


Their resulting multi-spectrum observations will translate into life-saving data.




Foreword by Marshall Masters

A key person in the revealing content of this article is a former US intelligence officer by the name of John Maynard.


These days, he is best known for his involvement with Dr. Steven Greer’s Disclosure Project. With regards to this article, his explanation of how our government first began tracking Planet X / Nibiru in 1983 is now being corroborated with the deployment of the South Pole Telescope (SPT) in Antarctica.

When I starting YOWUSA.COM in 1999, I received a good deal of help from John. Not one to remain idle, he took a position with the World Bank, to begin running their Africa desk following his retirement from the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). The NRO develops, deploys and operates America’s reconnaissance satellites for “customers” like the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Department of Defense (DOD).

As a former intelligence handler, John’s goals were two-fold.

  • First, the release of information he’d seen pass across his desk regarding space threats and extraterrestrials.

  • Second, and of equal importance to him, was teaching those who committed to publishing on these topics how to avoid confrontation with the Machiavellian-oriented groups within our government.

His advice greatly shaped the manner in which we publish our findings to this very day.

When I started this site in 1999 along with Jacco van der Worp, Steve Russell and Janice Manning, our focus was solely on Earth changes. Rather than follow the footsteps of a narrow Earth-centric debate centered on humanity’s impact on the biosphere, we opted to see if there was an off-world causality. In late 2000, we determined there was, and this led us to our present research efforts with regards to Planet X / Nibiru.

In late 2000, I also had several conversations with John regarding Planet X. Actually, I probed him rather hard. Having worked on the Denver-based Space Imaging satellite project for Lockheed Martin, I knew if a large incoming object was on the way, the Hubble or some other deep space bird had likely imaged it. My hunch was on the money.

John finally told me it had been imaged by NASA’s IRAS infrared sensing satellite in 1983 and that the mechanical failure story was used as a cover story. As he explained it to me, the IRAS data started pouring in, and that’s when they found Planet X. During one sweep, it stood out like a sore thumb; worse yet, it is approaching from the South.

This was especially bad news because the vast majority of the world’s most capable observatories are north of the Equator, and the decision was made to devote the remaining lifespan of the IRAS spacecraft to the observation of this one object.

After releasing the mechanical failure cover story, controllers used the IRAS’s remaining fuel to maintain a constant track on the object until they finally lost all control of the spacecraft.



Why IRAS Was Sacrificed

The reason why it was necessary to expend the IRAS’s remaining fuel is that tracking an object to determine its speed and trajectory requires multiple observations. This is because the more observations you make, the more you increase the accuracy of your tracking calculations.

This is why many Near Earth Object (NEO) announcements are alarming at first and then gradually become less threatening. As new observations are made, the chance of impact typically decreases through more accurate calculations.

The Internet is currently abuzz with interest for what is fondly called Planet X. Whether Planet X is nothing but wild speculation or the subject of serious investigation, if you know what to look for, chances are you will find it. The debate about whether it exists at all or not continues to rage. Yet, most scientists in need of research funding will stay clear of going against accepted theory; when asked, they will proclaim the official dogma:

"There is no such celestial body. If there were, we would have observed it by now. We have not; therefore, it cannot be there (Quod erat demonstrandum - which was to be proven)."

Coming from the mouths of reputable astronomers, this usually kills any debate before it even starts. Or perhaps it does not quite kill it totally; in spite of vehement denial by almost everybody connected to the astronomical society, the Planet X debate simply refuses to die off. Better yet (or worse, depending on your point of view), it grows stronger almost day by day.

Thanks to the continuing stream of mission and project announcements that, on the surface, seem to defy logic altogether, this debate lives on. We will look at one of these seemingly logic-defying projects in this article.

We see a strong indication that something is afoot indeed, something quite big.



A Telescope on Antarctica

The above title should have raised at least your eyebrows if you keep up with the news and know a bit about international politics. But it is true; a telescope, a rather large one at that, is under construction on Antarctica, which is the South Pole continent. Most people would not want to be found dead on that barren, frigid world, and chances are you would end up frozen to death if you go there. The continent is a cold and lifeless hell; it is no place for any human activity, for sure.

Nevertheless, the University of Chicago, together with those of Berkeley, Case Western Reserve and Illinois, and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Society are working on a project to build a telescope on Antarctica, at a stone’s throw from the geographical southernmost tip of the world.



Airborne Composites
Latest news, March 2006

This month Airborne Composites, The Netherlands, will complete the manufacturing of the Back up Structure for the South Pole Telescope (SPT) at their Ypenburg, The Hague premises. Early 2005, Airborne was selected as contractor for the delivery of this 10 meter diameter carbon fiber dish by General Dynamics VertexRSI in San Jose, USA.

Each component is designed so that it can be broken into parts that will fit in an LC-130 aircraft, which can carry about 11 metric tons and has a maximum cargo bay width of 3 meters. The installation window on the South Pole is only 2 months due to the severe weather conditions. The SPT is planned to be ready for operation in 2007.

The ready-to-assemble parts are being built right now in places around the world and will soon be flown to Antarctica to be assembled on-site.



Moving South or Into Space

The project website states they want to look at Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation, in order to help determine the structure and age of the universe and to confirm whether the expansion of the universe is actually accelerating.

South Pole Telescope
A new 10 meter diameter telescope is being constructed for deployment at the NSF South Pole research station. The telescope is designed for conducting large-area millimeter and sub-millimeter wave surveys of faint, low contrast emission, as required to map primary and secondary anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background.

Remarkable progress has been made in the characterization of the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) over the last several years. It was nearly 30 years after the initial discovery of the CMB by Penzias and Wilson in 1965 before small differences in its intensity were measured by COBE and its spectrum was shown to be a blackbody to high precision.

Yet, this statement does not explain why the telescope needs to be in such a remote, inhospitable location as near the South Pole.

Central Siberia offers equally dark night skies and a stable atmosphere too; it has almost equally cold winters, and it is much more easily accessible from the US and Europe, the origins of the construction parts of the telescope and the places the crews come from.
