Let the Commercial Space Business, Science and Tourism Begin

The future is here with spaceports cropping up across the United States as mankind prepares for more commercial, tourism and science in space.

In 2020, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensed 41 commercial space operations (launches and reentries), the most in the agency’s history.

These launches, new streamlined launch and reentry licensing regulations, and a historic licensed crewed mission are some of the noteworthy commercial space transportation achievements of the FAA last year. The FAA will build on these accomplishments in the coming year.

Spaceport.

“This record-setting year in launches, and the new streamlined launch and reentry licensing regulations, bode well for continued rapid growth of America’s commercial space sector,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

Those operations included a record 39 FAA-licensed launches, including the first-ever NASA crewed mission to be licensed by the FAA.

For 2021, the FAA is forecasting the number of licensed operations could reach 50 or more.

“The FAA is well positioned to keep pace with the dramatic increase in commercial space operations and support the innovation driven by the aerospace industry while keeping public safety a top priority,” said FAA Administrator Steve Dickson. 

Contributing to this year’s accomplishments are the benefits of a recent reorganization of the FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation.

The changes increased the efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of the office, allowing it to dynamically scale its processes to meet the burgeoning private sector licensing demand.

The organizational changes will help the FAA implement a new rule that modernizes how the agency regulates and licenses commercial space launch and reentry operations.

First FAA licensed spaceport.

The rule consolidates multiple regulatory parts to create a single licensing regime for all types of launch and reentry operations, replaces prescriptive requirements with performance-based criteria, and allows the aerospace industry to continue to innovate and grow.

In 2021, the FAA will continue to provide policies and guidance to support the streamlined licensing rule by publishing advisory circulars that will identify possible means of compliance.

Working with the Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Council (COMSTAC), the FAA also will prioritize its other regulations for updates and streamlining. Additionally, the agency anticipates the private sector will make notable progress toward commercially viable space tourism.

In the coming year, the FAA also will continue to test new technologies to further enable the safe and efficient integration of space-vehicle operations with other types of air traffic in the National Airspace System.

Current U.S. Spaceports & Launch Sites

Additionally, the FAA will establish an interagency working group to develop a recommended National Spaceport Strategy to advance a robust, innovative national system of spaceports.

An FAA license is required to conduct any commercial space launch or reentry, the operation of any launch or reentry site by U.S. citizens anywhere in the world, or by any individual or entity within the United States.

Once the FAA issues a license or permit, the agency works with operators to make sure they are meeting the requirements to conduct launches and reentries. This includes having FAA safety inspectors monitor licensed activities.

South Carolina Congressman to Object to Electoral College Certification

Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina indicated Thursday, December 31, 2020 that he will object to the Electoral College certification.

“As a former Lexington County Election Commissioner, not just as a Member of Congress, I am disgusted at the irregularities in the 2020 presidential election,” Wilson stated. “The failure to validate signatures, the omission of witnesses, the interruption of counting before completion, the denial of poll watchers for access to fully observe, the extension of ballots received beyond Election Day, and the registration of illegal aliens, allowing non-citizens to vote, are all an open invitation for fraud.”

“I had counted on courts to fully consider lawsuits by 18 states and 126 members of Congress, but the Courts have declined to act and it is my duty to object to the Electoral count because irregularities were never addressed.”

Wilson’s congressional district includes all of Lexington, Aiken and Barnwell counties, with parts of Richland and Orangeburg counties.

Top 10 Foods for Feeling, Looking and Doing Better

Are you interested in feeling better, looking better and having more energy?

Here are the top ten foods identified by most nutritionists to reach those goals:

1.         Avocados are full of healthy monounsaturated fats that keep you full and are great for lifting your mood while helping you burn belly fat.

2.         Coconut oil is a better alternative to butter or margarine. The benefits include an increased metabolism, resistance to bacteria (that causes illness), and lower cholesterol. Many people use it as a very effective moisturizer for skin and hair.

3.         Blueberries are only 80 calories a cup and are loaded with four grams of fiber. The bonus: blueberries are considered one of the best anti-aging foods in existence.

4.         Beans fill you up with protein without all the saturated fat of eating meat. About 15-25% of your plate should include protein.

5.         Brown rice has ample amounts of fiber also and is far better for you than white or fried rice. You fill up faster which helps you eat a smaller portion.

6.         Almonds are bursting with healthy fats giving bountiful age, energy and beauty benefits.

7.         Grapefruit has been a definitive diet food for ages because of its citrus packed weight-reducing powers.

8.         Wine has the favored antioxidant called Resveratrol to foil fat stowage. Thanks to the skins of the grapes of course.

9.         Almond milk that is unsweetened has about half of the calories, with twice the calcium as non-fat milk. It’s great for cereal in the morning.

10.       Green tea also has the magical powered antioxidants that are excellent for reducing the belly size.

Yes, Hillary Said if Trump “Wins, We All Hang From Nooses”


Since 2016, I have repeatedly read and watched videos indicating Hillary Clinton had a screaming outburst:

“If that f__king bastard (Donald Trump) wins, we all hang from nooses.”

It’s never been much of a secret, from White House staff, Secret Service agents, and campaign organizers that Hillary Clinton has a fiery reputation to the core for her vile mouth.

She was consistently rude to the agents who protected her with their lives, and dismissive of White House staffers. As first lady, she ordered everyone to not speak to her or look her in the eye if they encountered her in hallways. Staffers were said to hide behind curtains when they saw her.

Generally speaking, Secret Service agents are not going to speak much about Hillary’s temperament. However, Arkansas State Troopers and staff from the days of Bill Clinton’s governorship days are not so quiet.

Sally Miller told me that when she and then Gov. Clinton were having their affair, the state troopers would notoriously do anything to avoid her wrath.

Clinton with Arkansas state troopers.

“They despised her so much that they dutifully enjoyed arranging for Bill and my rendezvous,” Miller said. “It was their revenge and they did it with smiles on their faces. She was a ‘nut case’ they would say.”

On page 90 of his book American Evita, author Christopher Anderson, writes the response Hillary yelled to her State Trooper body guards after one of them greeted her with “Good Morning.”

“F__k off!  It’s enough I have to see you sh_t-kickers every day, I’m not going to talk to you too!!  Just do your G_damn job and keep your mouth shut.”

Gary Aldrich, the FBI Agent in Charge of Clinton detail wrote the book Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House.

“Stay the fuck back, stay the fuck back away from me,” Hillary screamed at Secret Service agents, Agent Aldridge wrote. “Don’t come within ten yards of me, or else!  Just fucking do as I say, Okay!!?”

With some research, I found an original source of the “all hang from nooses” quote. It is Bill Still, of The Still Report videos on YouTube.

A former newspaper editor and publisher. He has written for USA Today, The Saturday Evening Post, the Los Angeles Times Syndicate, OMNI magazine, and has also produced the syndicated radio program, Health News. He has written 23 books and two documentary videos.

According to Still, during a Trump-Clinton presidential campaign event at the Commander-In-Chief Forum on September 7, 2016, moderator Matt Lauer went “off script” and asked Hillary about her using an illegal, private email-server when she was secretary of state.


According to Bill Still’s source — an unnamed “NBC associate producer of the forum” — Hillary was so enraged that, after the forum, she went into a ballistic melt-down, screaming at her staff, including a racist rant at Donna Brazile, calling Brazile a “buffalo” and “janitor”.

At that point, Brazile recently turned against Hillary. This is the NBC associate producer’s account of what happened:

“Hillary proceeded to pick up a full glass of water and throw it at the face of the assistant, and the screaming started.


She was in a full meltdown and no one on her staff dared speak with her — she went kind of manic and did not have any control over herself at that point.

How these people work with this woman is amazing to me. She really didn’t seem to care who heard any of it.


You really had to see this to believe it. She came apart — literally unglued. She is the most foul-mouthed woman I’ve ever heard. And that voice at screech level — awful!


She screamed she’d get that f__king Lauer fired for this. 

Referring to Donald Trump, Clinton said, ‘If that f__king bastard wins, we all hang from nooses!’ 

Lauer’s finished, and if I lose, it’s all on your heads for screwing this up.’


Her dozen or more aides were visibly disturbed and tried to calm her down when she started shaking uncontrollably as she screamed to get an executive at Comcast, the parent company of NBC Universal, on the phone. Then two rather large aides grabbed her and helped her walk to her car.”

Bill Still reported:

“Matt Lauer was massively criticized for the rest of the week on air by the Clinton campaign and the rest of the MSM as having conducted ‘an unfair and partisan attack on Clinton’.

Calls were made to The New York TimesThe Washington PostHuffington Post and Twitterexecutives, with orders to crush Matt Lauer.

One staffer on the Clinton campaign told the NBC staff that they all fear Clinton’s wrath and uncontrollable outbursts, and one described Hillary as ‘an egotistical psychopath’.

Since Hillary does not allow any staff to have cell phones when she is in their presence, no footage is available.


Interim DNC chairman Donna Brazile, the first black woman to hold the position, was singled out by Hillary during the rant.

She screamed at Donna, ‘I’m so sick of your face! You stare at the wall like a brain-dead buffalo, while letting that f_cking Lauer get away with this! What are you good for, really? Get the f_ck to work, janitoring this mess, do I make myself clear?


A female NBC executive said Donna Brazile looked at Mrs. Clinton and never flinched, which seemed to enrage Hillary all the more.

The executive continued: ‘It was the most awful and terrible and racist display. Such a profane meltdown I have ever witnessed from anyone, and I will never forget it. That woman should never see the inside of the Oval Office, I can tell you that. She was unhinged and just continued to verbally abuse everyone. She was out of control.’

“If you want to remain on this detail, get your f__king ass over here and grab those bags,” Hillary screeched to a Secret Service agent as outlined on page 259 of The First Partner: Hillary Rodham Clinton, by Joyce Milton.

The agent was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of a security incident occurred.

The Most Popular News Articles of 2020

We are sincerely thankful for the patronage and readership of so many followers around the world.

When Dodie and I began CleverJourneys in May 2020, we came loaded with experience. My first big interview was with Clint Eastwood in 1974. I was fresh out of high school and very motivated after scoring that opportunity.

When I decided to return to writing 12 years ago, it was obvious that print media and journalism in general were lying and dying. Little did I realize it was worse than I thought.

I wrote over 2,100 articles for Examiner, but their Colorado editors kept censoring me. I learned their workshifts and would post conservative articles when certain leftist editors were not there.

Within a year I became the top Texas “Examiner” and remained in the Top 5 position (often #1 of the week) in the United States until AXS Entertainment bought Examiner out.

Soon I was interviewing celebrity singers touring Texas such as George Strait, B.B. King, Kenny Rogers, Merle Haggard, George Jones and writing news, history and reviews for AXS and The Rowdy.

For several years I wrote for them and started NewsLegit.com until a competitor bought me out. I had to wait a year before I could start a new site per the agreement. Over time, I learned much about the blogging business.

As newlyweds in December 2019, Dodie brought along a keen eye for detail and the wisdom of 38+ years as an RN. She’s absolutely smart and the best copy editor I’ve ever worked with.

We started out hoping to get 25 hits a day. On a good day we’d see a hundred. Steadily we found our niche (Dodie calls it “our groove”). As we roadtripped the United States during the pandemic summer, we learned so much about what Americans–decent citizens–were thinking and doing. It was not even close to what the media and Hollywood portrayed.

This helped us considerably find our groove…and success.

With 11 years of building relationships and credible sources in government, politics, law enforcement, military, civil service and yes, in entertainment, we built our readership to hundreds and then thousands a day. Recently we surpassed the 9,600 views an hour record—that’s over 160 hits a minute.

We couldn’t do it without each of you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

In case you missed them, here is our first official countdown of the ten most read CleverJourneys articles of the year. Little did any of us know what we were all in for during 2020. God Bless and thank you again.

Our preconceived ideas from news and the continually changing regulations around COVID-19 were blown away with the reality we experienced. It actually restored our faith in the goodness of America.

#9

How the Democrats plan to oust President Trump even if he is reelected.

Will Donald J. Trump be America’s last president?

If most Americans were familiar with what the French term “coup d’etat” means, they would likely understand the question.

#10

The Most Important Decision of Donald Trump’s Presidency Can Save America

President Donald J. Trump does not seem to have too many choices for January 2021, but it essentially all breaks down to just two:

1. Save the United States.

2. Abandon the United States.

Which one do you think he is prepared to do?

The keyword is “prepared.”

If massive voter fraud and Deep State control are allowed, it’s the end of the United States, home of the free and brave as we know it. Goodbye Constitution. Adios Freedoms. Welcome Chinese Communist Party.

Not including just the four years he has led the nation, but for decades we’ve seen Donald Trump masterfully win in the ruthless world of global business–and based out of New York of all the merciless cities, no less.

The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy,” said Sun Tzu, the Chinese military strategist and philosopher in The Art of War.

Honest and in-depth descriptions of President Trump chronicles him as a “maestro,” “virtuoso,” a “genius” in Sun Tzu practice. Remember, this was even before he was elected President.

Look weak and confused when you are strong. Look strong when weak. The battle is won before it’s fought in the field, if you are prepared and know your enemy.

When President Trump signed Executive Order #13848 on September 12, 2018, he was preparing for the inevitable of “persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States to interfere in or undermine public confidence in United States elections, including through the unauthorized accessing of election and campaign infrastructure or the covert distribution of propaganda and disinformation, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.”

Signing the EO was an intentional strategy to “win the battle before it was fought.”

All of his life, Trump has become the accomplished champion of strategy and success. The Deep State can put all the Jim Comeys, Jim Acostas, Nancy Pelosis, Jake Tappers, Adam Schiffs, and even the invincible Hillary Clintons out there to battle, but Trump is going to beat them each time.

With a team including General Mike Flynn, Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell and Lin Wood on the battlefield, we can be certain every move they make is strategic and purposeful.

Flynn

Flynn’s and Wood’s “100%” certainty of Trump being inaugurated on January 20, 2021 keeps the enemy guessing, plotting, and digging themselves into their own deceptions (Don’t forget Spygate, Dossier, Russia Hoax, Kavanaugh Hearing, Impeachment and the other Democratic failures).

Powell’s “Kraken” was so powerful, it sensationally burst through all media censorship and blockades.

The wise and knowledgeable Giuliani superceded deep state propaganda attempts and echoes of “without evidence” and “baseless” buzz. Only the most hypnotized of Democrats would believe media to the point that even 43 percent of that party’s voters believe the 2020 Election was rigged (91 percent of Republicans know it was).

Popular social media.

Consider how effectively Team Trump offered clues to keep patriots informed/motivated and provided hints to throw the enemies off course.

It’s called playing offense, and as Sun Tzu would say, “All warfare is based on deception.”

One (of apparently a multiprong) approach was to give anyone involved, or with knowledge, to come clean or offer truth.

The president publically warned and offered Georgia Governor Brian Kemp the opportunity to do what was right. Instead he opted to play dirty politics, turn coattail and hide the obvious: he is owned by China, a la California’s Newsom and New York’s Cuomo.

“Build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across.”

Despite the bread crumbs to save themselves, tainted politicians resisted and rooted further into the Swamp.

Meanwhile–more than even Giuliani or Ellis expected–hundreds of patriotic whistleblowers and witnesses came forward armed with videos, photos and testimonials for sworn affidavits of the election fraud in contested states. Their truths were as massive as the news outlets’ lies.

“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”

Remember, the Democratic operatives had a strategy: cheat.

When they realized ballots for Trump  were overwhelming, they resorted to desperate and sloppy measures: kick observers out, close down the election counting centers (remember the leaking water line that didn’t exist?), truck in more manufactured votes, count ballots repeatedly, manipulate voting machines…

Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper and immediately replaced him and his sycophants with Chris Miller, Ezra Cohen-Watnick and Kash Patel for a huge reason.

Trump and Esper.

Action happened fast:

1. Special Forces raided the CIA Deep State cyber farm in Frankfurt, Germany. They acquired and secured evidence showing foreign interference in the election.

2. Special Forces were taken from the command of each military branch and placed under Watnick allowing President Trump direct control.

3. Trump threw out members of the Defense Policy Board and replaced them with trusted allies Newt Gingrich, Thomas Carter, Thomas Stewart, Scott O’Grady, Edward Luttwak, former Rep. Randy Forbes, former Sen. Robert Smith, Charles Glazer, David Bossie and Corey LewandowskI.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Trump looking directly at Mitch McConnell.

American Patriots are preparing if needed. They have two basic decisions:

1. Wait it out until President Trump gives the word. Listen to what he has been telling us. If he says call your Senator, show up at a specific rally, or march on Washington (or state capital), do it.

This strategy is to overcome and win without a brutal internal war. We must be patient until the Deep State makes their first moves with advancing forces (their judges and legislatures will be irrelevant at this point. They had their chance and any blood is on their hands).

I believe President Trump has this covered with the National Guard and Special Forces if required. He desperately wants no innocent Americans harmed.

“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.”

Media lunacy.

2. The second choice is to obey what the mainstream media has been endlessly screaming at you. They are desperate to spawn a web of false knowledge and control the minds of mass-media consumers and academia followers.

This is why China underwrites the New York Times and Harvard. Penn State even has their very own Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement that China has illegally donated heavily to. 

Before the 2016 and 2020 elections,  the media kept telling us that Hillary and Biden had huge leads. Every sign that we could see with our own eyes, from peace in the Middle East to the rebounding economy to massive rally turnouts, pointed to a Trump landslide.

It’s incredibly obvious from seeing the pattern of voter ballots in fraud and non-fraud states, that Trump did indeed win by an historical landslide.

America knows Biden didn’t win.

A wise friend sent me this observation: “Now, the mere existence of a plan does not mean that it will be successful. The enemy always gets a vote and no plan, no matter how well gamed-out it is, can be reasonably expected to perfectly anticipate all of the enemy’s moves.”

“But the elements of the plan that have been exposed to our view to date do not indicate an inept or mediocre planner whose efforts are likely to fail behind it. To the contrary, they show signs of a strategic mind that may even rival some of history’s greats.” 

“But at this point, it is hard to imagine any of the primary players losing their nerve when the plan is playing out, the traps have all been laid, the enemy has dutifully entered them en masse, and the end game is in sight.”

Here are four more quotes from Sun Tzu to ponder:

“The whole secret lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent.”

“One mark of a great soldier is that he fight on his own terms or fights not at all.”

“If the mind is willing, the flesh could go on and on without many things.”

“He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious.”

..And one from the Founding Father who first advocated American independence in his “Common Sense” pamphlet:

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. ~ Thomas Paine

Human Remains Found at San Antonio, Texas Military Base

In a press release, the Air Force said partial skeletal remains of a human were found on Joint Base San Antonio – Fort Sam Houston (JBSA), Texas on Sunday.

Base patrons found the human remains Sunday evening while walking near Salado Creek, located in the northeast part of the installation.

Salado Creek

There is no present danger to base residents and there are no missing persons cases at this time the release said.

The area has been cordoned off and on Monday personnel with the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigation began investigating the remains and the location they were found.

JBSA officials and OSI personnel are coordinating with local law enforcement officials on the ongoing investigation.

The discovery of these human remains comes a month after two service members were found dead at JBSA in November.

Salado Creek

Stars and Stripes reported Army Spc. Brittany Harris, 35, was found dead at Fort Sam Houston on Nov. 25 and Air Force Airman 1st Class Peter Gonzalez, 21, was found dead at Lackland Air Force Base on Nov. 26. Both of those deaths are under investigation but officials don’t suspect foul play in either case.

JBSA services more Department of Defense (DOD) students than any other installation, more active runways than any other installation, houses the DOD’s largest hospital and only level one trauma center.

They support more than 250,000 personnel, including 425 retired general officers, and interfaces with 1,000 civic leaders of San Antonio, 20 smaller communities, four counties and four Congressional Districts.

Its total plant replacement value is about $10.3 billion with an annual budget of $800 million.

Does the President Have a Royal Flush of Trump Cards Ready to Flip Over?

Biden, Pelosi, Soros and Communist China tried to stack the deck, but President Donald Trump played with honest cards and won.

This is flying around the internet (sent to me by four reliable people) and has has merit. It’s purported to be from Candice Owens, but I haven’t been able to confirm that. In any case, it is worth pondering. The information I know to be true is denoted with an asterisk “*”. Claims to be at least partially true are denoted with a “#” .


#At the moment, POTUS is sitting on a stack of Trump cards that he’s just waiting to unleash…a royal flush!


#He has court cases that will go to the Supreme Court and thanks to the Texas case, he’s now aware how to file them properly…under article 3 not 2…so the SCOTUS will be forced to listen…..


#He now has the DNI report. Barr stepped down and can now be a witness…..he did his job. Durham is special counsel and can prosecute, in any state….


#He’s letting civil, criminal and federal courts fail to handle the situation properly…..so he can use military tribunals.

*He has ALL the data from the NSA, the Kraken supercomputer, the Alice supercomputer and likely many more computers, unknown to us….


*He has the dueling electors from 7 state legislatures.

*He has VP Pence, as the final arbiter of which ballots to accept…..


#He has the Insurrection Act, the NDAA, the national emergency, the 14th amendment, the 2018 executive order, the 2017 very first EO, the Patriot Act, the FISA warrants, the Declassification of everything, people swearing affidavits by the 1000s.


*He has all the statistical data being analyzed….along with the videos, emails, phone calls and bank transfer statements…..showing the coordination of the coup d’etat.


*He has RICO and he has the crimes against humanity videos.

#Wikileaks just dropped extensive information and Assange will be pardoned. Assange can then openly discuss the murder of Seth Rich….


#Now that the governors and secretary of states certified and Biden accepted….they each committed and knowingly agreed to acts of Treason….(My note: I believe she is referring to the states in question with lawsuits filed only, not all states).


*Solar Winds was literally just raided and Dominion is closing down, as well.

#He has the CIA servers, used to change dominion machine votes from Trump to Biden…and he will soon have access to the actual machines, themselves….(I haven’t been able to verify if he will have machines physically. Perhaps she is talking about specific ones, like Antrim County, Michigan? Or those confiscated at the cyber farm in Frankfurt, Germany?).


He baited the Deep State into staying in DC, so they can be arrested.

#Biden hasn’t accepted any transition money and Harris has still not given up her seat on the senate….


#The military has infiltrated Antifa and BLM. He has all their financial records. (I know they’ve been infiltrated and under reconnaissance, but not certain if he has ALL of their financial records. I do know the Treasury Department has strong powers and if Executive Order #13848 is enacted, the monies will be ceized, as well as the abilities to conduct transactions will cease).

#He knows which politicians took Chinese and Soros money….both Republican and Demonicrat….


*He positioned Christopher Miller as secretary of defense and Ezra-Cohen Watnick as assistant secretary of defense. (U.S. Special Forces now answers to Watnick instead of each Military branch’s generals).

*He literally just wrote an executive order, regarding the military line of succession.

Many suspect Watnick to be Q.


*He is defunding the CIA.

*He just replaced Kissinger & Allbright on the National Security Advisory Board…..with men loyal to him. (Trump threw out members of the Defense Policy Board and replaced them with trusted allies Newt Gingrich, Thomas Carter, Thomas Stewart, Scott O’Grady, Edward Luttwak, former Rep. Randy Forbes, former Sen. Robert Smith, Charles Glazer, David Bossie and Corey Lewandowski).


The military has been flying planes, far more than usual, all over the country.

*The Navy just parked mega fleets on both coasts.

The 82nd Airborne is preparing for an operation….which is the same group that General Flynn & AG Donoghue were enlisted.


Pieces are finally falling into place. POTUS has it all! He is just laying out the pieces and building the narrative. He knows he won and they commited Treason!

He set a trap and they walked right in, without hesitation.

Ashes of ‘Scotty’ From Star Trek Orbits Earth

Any Baby Boomer can remember the command, “Beam me up, Scotty,” from the 1966 through 1969 television series Star Trek, starring William Shatner as Captain Kirk, Leonard Nimoy as Spock, and DeForest Kelley as Leonard McCoy.

The chief engineer on the original series is now aboard International Space Station orbiting Earth.

Nimoy, Shatner, Doohan

Actor James Doohan, who played chief engineer Montgomery Scott on the series, died in 2005 at the age of 85. It was a long time dream of his to travel into space.

The Times of London recently revealed how the ashes of Doohan were sneaked aboard the ISS after official requests to do so were denied.

Richard Garriott, one of the first private citizens to travel on the space station was able to smuggle some of Doohan’s ashes into the space station’s Columbus module.

Garriott

Garriott said he took a laminated picture of Doohan and some of his ashes and put it under the floor of the Columbus. He didn’t tell anyone about the scheme — only he and Doohan’s family knew until a few days ago.

“It was completely clandestine,” Garriott told the Times. “His family were very pleased that the ashes made it up there but we were all disappointed we didn’t get to talk about it publicly for so long. Now enough time has passed that we can.”

It’s not the first time Doohan’s ashes have made into outer space. A portion of his ashes were aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 1 rocket in 2008. Unfortunately, that rocket failed minutes after launch.

In 2012, an urn with some of Doohan’s ashes flew into space aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9. According to the Times, Doohan’s ashes have traveled some 1.7 billion miles across space, and have orbited the Earth more than 70,000 times.

Doohan’s son Chris thanked Garriott for smuggling his late father’s ashes aboard the ISS.

“What he did was touching — it meant so much to me, so much to my family and it would have meant so much to my dad,” he said.
