NASA Moves Up Launch of Psyche Mission to a Metal Asteroid 

Psyche, NASA's Discovery Mission to a unique metal asteroid, has been moved up one year with launch in the summer of 2022, and with a planned arrival at the main belt asteroid in 2026 -- four years earlier than the original timeline.

“We challenged the mission design team to explore if an earlier launch date could provide a more efficient trajectory to the asteroid Psyche, and they came through in a big way,” said Jim Green, director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “This will enable us to fulfill our science objectives sooner and at a reduced cost.”

The Discovery program announcement of opportunity had directed teams to propose missions for launch in either 2021 or 2023. The Lucy mission was selected for the first launch opportunity in 2021, and Psyche was to follow in 2023. Shortly after selection in January, NASA gave the direction to the Psyche team to research earlier opportunities.

"The biggest advantage is the excellent trajectory, which gets us there about twice as fast and is more cost effective," said Principal Investigator Lindy Elkins-Tanton of Arizona State University in Tempe. "We are all extremely excited that NASA was able to accommodate this earlier launch date. The world will see this amazing metal world so much sooner."

The revised trajectory is more efficient, as it eliminates the need for an Earth gravity assist, which ultimately shortens the cruise time. In addition, the new trajectory stays farther from the sun, reducing the amount of heat protection needed for the spacecraft. The trajectory will still include a Mars gravity assist in 2023.

"The change in plans is a great boost for the team and the mission," said Psyche Project Manager Henry Stone at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. "Our mission design team did a fantastic job coming up with this ideal launch opportunity."

The Psyche spacecraft is being built by Space Systems Loral (SSL), Palo Alto, California. In order to support the new mission trajectory, SSL redesigned the solar array system from a four-panel array in a straight row on either side of the spacecraft to a more powerful five-panel x-shaped design, commonly used for missions requiring more capability. Much like a sports car, by combining a relatively small spacecraft body with a very high-power solar array design, the Psyche spacecraft will speed to its destination at a faster pace than is typical for a larger spacecraft.

"By increasing the size of the solar arrays, the spacecraft will have the power it needs to support the higher velocity requirements of the updated mission," said SSL Psyche Program Manager Steve Scott.

The Psyche Mission

Psyche, an asteroid orbiting the sun between Mars and Jupiter, is made almost entirely of nickel-iron metal. As such, it offers a unique look into the violent collisions that created Earth and the terrestrial planets.

The Psyche Mission was selected for flight earlier this year under NASA's Discovery Program, a series of lower-cost, highly focused robotic space missions that are exploring the solar system.

The scientific goals of the Psyche mission are to understand the building blocks of planet formation and explore firsthand a wholly new and unexplored type of world. The mission team seeks to determine whether Psyche is the core of an early planet, how old it is, whether it formed in similar ways to Earth's core, and what its surface is like. The spacecraft's instrument payload will include magnetometers, multispectral imagers, and a gamma ray and neutron spectrometer.

Indian Air Force (IAF) Pilot Forced To Dump Fuel, Causing Explosion, After Flying Through Flock Of Birds.....

An Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot caused multiple explosions as he dumped fuel and bombs after flying through a flock of birds. The collision with the unfortunate animals caused an immediate engine failure on the Jaguar aircraft which was forced to make an emergency landing following the incident. Before the pilot could land, he had to dump fuel tanks and Carrier Bomb Light Stores, a form of practice bomb, which caused explosions on the ground below.The pilot was commended by authorities for “assessing the situation in seconds” and following the standard operating procedure for such an incident. In a statement the IAF said: “His actions bear testimony to the highest professional standards of the IAF resulting from extensive operational training.”Source

Our Lady Of Loreto Is The Patroness Of St Thomas Aquinas Versus NASA Blog JULY 2019

Pope St. John XXIII made a pilgrimage to the Holy House on October 4, 1962 to pray the day before the opening of Vatican Council II, to ask the Blessed Virgin's protection of the Council. Pope Benedict made the same pilgrimage 50 years later on October 4, 2012.Source
148 days after his visit to the Flying House Pope Benedict resigned.
Our Lady of Loreto is the Patroness of Aviation?
What? No, She is not. 
The Flying House of Our Lady would NEVER violate the laws of God!

The Flying House NEVER flew above 29,050ft, but modern day aircraft violate this boundary 24/7.
Many Catholics are ignorant of the boundary that God has established that man must not pass over and that is 29,050ft or 15 cubits above the mountain tops. This 29,050 boundary is the same level that the waters of the Deluge reached in the time of Noe cleansing the world of sin. This boundary is the same that the fires of the final conflagration will reach at the end of days to cleanse the world of sin.
Of course none …

Flying In The Habitat Of Demons: Ian Robert James Morin Arrested For Hitting Delta Flight Attendant On Paris Flight

Indiana man arrested for hitting Delta flight attendant on Paris flight Passengers on Delta Airlines’ Flight 500 from Indianapolis to Paris got an unexpected visit to Detroit on Thursday after an “unruly passenger” caused the plane to divert. The disturbance happened just after 6 p.m. EDT, according to a federal criminal complaint. About 40 minutes after boarding the flight to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport, authorities say Ian Robert James Morin began “yelling and acting erratically.” According to the complaint, the flight crew tried to calm Morin but he continued to shout and refuse to comply with their demands. Morin then allegedly hit a flight attendant in the throat with an open hand. The complaint said he tried to strike the attendant a second time, then threw up on the aircraft. Following the diversion and Morin’s removal and arrest, Delta put the flight’s other passengers up in hotels for the night and resumed the eight-hour flight to Paris Friday morning, Delta told The …
