China ‘lifts mysterious veil’ by landing probe on dark side of Moon

A Chinese space probe successfully touched down on the far side of the moon on Thursday, China’s space agency said, hailing the event as a historic first and a major achievement for the country’s space programme.

The Chang’e-4 lunar probe, launched in December, made the “soft landing” at 0226 GMT and transmitted the first-ever “close range” image of the far side of the moon, the China National Space Administration said.

The moon is tidally locked to Earth, rotating at the same rate as it orbits our planet, so most of the far side – or “dark side” – is never visible to us. Previous spacecraft have seen the far side, but none has landed on it.

The landing “lifted the mysterious veil” of the far side of the moon and “opened a new chapter in human lunar exploration”, the agency said in a statement on its website, which included a wide-angle colour picture of a crater from the moon’s surface.

The probe, which has a lander and a rover, touched down at a targeted area near the moon’s south pole in the Von Karman Crater after entering the moon’s orbit in mid-December.

The tasks of the Chang’e-4 include astronomical observation, surveying the moon’s terrain, landform and mineral makeup, and measuring the neutron radiation and neutral atoms to study the environment of its far side.

The control centre in Beijing will decide when to let the rover separate from the lander, state news agency Xinhua said.

“It’s an important milestone for China’s space exploration,” Wu Weiren, chief designer of the lunar exploration programme, said, according to Xinhua.

The probe also took six live species – cotton, rapeseed, potato, arabidopsis, fruit fly and yeast – to the lifeless environment to form a mini biosphere, Xinhua said.

A MAJOR SPACE POWER

The landing is the latest step for China in its race to catch up with Russia and the United States and become a major space power by 2030. Beijing plans to launch construction of its own manned space station next year.

While China has insisted its ambitions are purely peaceful, the U.S. Defense Department has accused it of pursuing activities aiming to prevent other nations from using space-based assets during a crisis.

Besides its civilian ambitions, China has tested anti-satellite missiles and the U.S. Congress has banned NASA from two-way cooperation with its Chinese counterpart over security concerns.

As competition accelerates in space, U.S. President Donald Trump seeks to create a new “Space Force” by 2020, as the sixth branch of the military.

But the private space race is also heating up, as numerous companies aim to commercialize space travel, such as California-based SpaceX, which has upended the industry with its low-cost reusable Falcon 9 rockets.

The United States is the only country to have landed humans on the moon, and Trump said in 2017 he wanted to return astronauts to the lunar surface to build a foundation for an eventual Mars mission.

NASA administrators have said people could be put on Mars by as soon as the mid-2030s, with the agency having landed eight spacecraft there, the most recent in November.

As soon as 2022, NASA expects to begin building a new space station laboratory to orbit the moon, as a pit stop for missions to distant parts of the solar system.

In 2003, China became the third country to put a man in space with its own rocket after the former Soviet Union and the United States, and in 2017 it said it was preparing to send a person to the moon.

China completed its first lunar “soft landing” in 2013, but its “Jade Rabbit” rover began malfunctioning after several weeks.

China Lands World’s First Lunar Rover On Dark Side Of The Moon

Five years after successfully landing its first rover on the moon, China’s space program took another giant leap forward on Thursday when it became the first to successfully land a lunar probe on the dark side of the moon (the side of the celestial body that perpetually faces away from the Earth).

According to Bloomberg, the Chang’e-4 lunar probe, named after the mythical Moon Goddess, landed at 10:26 am in Beijing and started transmitting the first pictures of the dark side of the moon’s surface. The probe had been circling the moon in an elliptical orbit since Sunday, after leaving the Xichang Satellite Launch Center on Dec. 8.

PEACE! North and South Korea agree to ‘COMPLETE denuclearisation’ as Moon Jae-in vows ‘there will be no war’ with Kim Jong-un

The declaration included promises to pursue military arms reduction, cease “hostile acts,” turn their fortified border into a “peace zone,” and seek multilateral talks with other countries, such as the United States.

In his first ever press conference in front of the world’s media Kim Jong-un said:“We are one nation we cannot be separated. We share the same blood.

“We are living with each other. We are brothers.”

The Koreas said they hope the parties will be able to declare an official end to the war by the end of this year.


What’s happened so far:

  • Kim Jong-un met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on the southern side of the demilitarised zone in the border truce village of Panmunjom
  • He made history as the first North Korean leader to cross into the South since the Korean War ended in 1953
  • The leaders displayed signs of unity and peace as they shook hands on both sides of the border line
  • Kim signed a guest book at the Peace House, in which he wrote: “A new history begins now”
  • Referring to missile tests, Kim joked “[we] won’t interrupt your early morning sleep anymore”
  • Kim offered to visit South Korean presidential mansion after Moon suggested more summits
  • The pair have planted a commemorative pine tree from 1953 – the year the Korean War armistice was signed – at the border truce village.
  • The countries have agreed to the the complete denuclearisation of the peninsula and hope to declare the war officially over by the end of this year.

Today’s super blood moon SATANIC SEX RITUALS human animal sacrifice

The end of January and beginning of February is already an important time in the calendar for Satanists – but tonight’s once-in-a-lifetime conjunction of a blue moon, blood moon and lunar eclipse has sent some Devil-worshippers into a frenzy.

Across Britain and the world Satanic covens are expected to convene ‘workings’ where Lucifer will be summoned. Some online forums are even suggesting human and animal sacrifice will play a part.

During a recent full moon Satanic ritual one of the famous Dartmoor ponies was found in a circle of fire with its tongue, eyes and genitals mutilated and belly slit from end to end. The mutilations had been conducted while the pony was alive.

At the time Karla McKechnie, Dartmoor’s Livestock Protection Officer, said she feared devil worshippers were behind the slaughter and said: “We do get strange things happening from time to time, normally when it’s a full moon.

“I suspect its witches or devil worshippers.

“My main concern is how someone has been able to walk up to a foal and kill it in the middle of the night. I’m almost certain more than one person was involved.”

Jenny Thornton, of the South West Equine Protection, said Dartmoor ponies were easy targets for Satanists because they are used to being fed by humans.

She added: “I’ve seen plenty of dead animals but this was horrendous. The belly has been sliced open. It’s a boy and its genitals had been cut off.

“The tongue had been pulled out and his eyes are missing. There have always been rumours of animal sacrifices and sheep have been found dead in the past, often around the time of a full moon.”

According to Satanist site The Open Scroll the days surrounding the current super blood blue moon include the following important dates in the Satanic calendar:

Jan 29 – St. Agnes Eve which is prime time for the casting of spells

Feb 2 – Candlemas (Sabbat Festival) which celebrates blood, animal and human sacrifice

Feb 2 – The Satanic Revels, which celebrates Satanic sexual rituals

Satanists were also openly celebrating the super moon and the possibilities for Satanic worship.

Hell on Earth? Super blood blue moon could see rise in Satanic rituals

One leading online devil worship site said: “There is more magical energy during a full moon and a new moon than there is at other time and this does benefit by increasing the energy force available.

“However, Satan nor Demons are bound to “full moon arrivals” and are free to manifest as they desire.

“When you call a demon, it does not matter what phase the moon is in at that time. If you are sincere in your intention and approach, you will get results; I have witnessed it countless times.

“The calling of the blessed guest from Hell should always be the first order of business when conducting a working.

“You need to establish the connection early so you can communicate your will and desires to your “guests”.
