“NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has detected propylene, a chemical used to make food-storage containers, car bumpers and other consumer products, on Saturn’s moon Titan.”
This was the news that came from NASA on September 30, 2013.
The very next day, the federal government was shut down. Oh, they didn’t shut down all of the federal government, mind you, just certain parts… like the part of the government that released the news about the discovery of materials associated with complex civilization on the moon Titan.
Coincidence? I don’t think so. I mean, if you think that there’s some other reasonable explanation for the government shutdown, what is it? A disagreement about health care reform? Yeah, right.
NASA scientists had expressed their “excitement” at the discovery. And why were they excited? It seems pretty clear to those of us who are paying attention. Who wouldn’t be excited at discovering that there is not only life outside of Earth, but even civilized life that is using Tupperware and is concerned with automobile safety?
Oh, there’s an alternative explanation, of course. Scott Edgington, a “deputy project scientist” in “Pasadena” was put up to the task of telling the media that “I am always excited when scientists discover a molecule that has never been observed before in an atmosphere.” Yeah, right. Nice cover, “Scott”.
Of course, the site with the press release containing Edgington’s supposed quote has also disappeared, behind a sudden announcement that “Due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available.
We sincerely regret this inconvenience.”
Sincerely. Sure. Regret. Yeah, right. Another “lapse” in government security over research into extraterrestrial technology goes right down the memory hole.
