ROCKOON:

A rockoon (a portmanteau of rocket and balloon) was an extension to the rocket, which allowed the rocket to achieve further distance. The rockoon was a solid fuel rocket that, rather than being immediately lit while on the ground, was first carried into the upper atmosphere by a gas-filled balloon, and then separated from the balloon when it had reached its maximum height and automatically ignited. This would allow the rocket to achieve a higher altitude, since the rocket did not have to move through the lower thicker air layers.

The original concept of "Rockoons" was developed by Cmdr. Lee Lewis, Cmdr. G. Halvorson, S. F. Singer, and James A. Van Allen during the Aerobee rocket firing cruise of the U.S.S. Norton Sound on March 1, 1949.

ASTROPHOBIA:


What Is Astrophobia?
Astrophobia, or fear of stars and space, means different things to different people. For many, astrophobia is highly connected to a fear of aliens. Films such as Independence Day, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and, of course, Alien, play into the fear that intelligent life may exist outside our own planet and that those life forms may be hostile to us. Many of these films involve doomsday scenarios, in which life as we know it is threatened by an extraterrestrial attack.

Astrophobia may also be connected to fears of the dark, being alone or being away from home. Films such as Space Camp address the cold emptiness of outer space. Astrophobia can also stem from a fear of space exploration, triggered by such catastrophes as the explosions of Space Shuttles Challenger and Columbia. The film Apollo 13 addressed the very real danger that is associated with the space program.

Symptoms of Astrophobia
The symptoms of astrophobia are similar to those of other specific phobias. Depending on the exact nature of your phobia, you may find yourself unable to watch films about aliens. You might become obsessed with locations such as Area 51 and wonder about conspiracy theories that claim a government cover-up of alien interactions. You may retain a healthy skepticism about those theories, but worry about what it could mean *if* they were true.

If your fear is of space itself, you probably find it hard to watch movies or television shows about the space program. You might avoid shuttle launches and become uncomfortable when politicians and pundits discuss the future of space travel.

CHANDRA - The Phantom Ferry-Part One:
(play Chandra now, and read the story) :-)

The manuscript from 1977 (that Edgar`s story is based upon is nowhere to be found).Can you publish it EB? :-)

But the incident below has something to do with it!?

The Phantom Ferry went missing in 1947, but reappeared on Radar 50 years later! Philadelphia Experiment or Alien forces??


Mystery of King Bird Five Zero (excerpts from http://www.coasttocoastam.com/show/2009/04/24)

"First hour guest, writer James Choron, discussed the mysterious case of King Bird Five Zero. The B-50A Bomber went missing in December 1947 while en route to Germany from McGuire AFB in New Jersey, Choron explained. The crew of King Bird Five Zero were thought to have been lost, until one night some 50 years later when the aircraft apparently reappeared on radar. According to Choron, the long-missing bomber showed up at the exact time they had been expected five decades earlier, and began broadcasting identity and position reports on an obsolete frequency to Thule AFB in Greenland.
A colonel who was in the tower at the time told Choron the pilot had asked them to light up the base before the aircraft abruptly ceased broadcasting and vanished from radar. A search party later found the wreckage of a B-50A Bomber on a glacier with 11 freshly dead crew members. The aircraft's log showed the last entry was from 1947, Choron noted. What happened to the bodies remains a mystery to this day, Choron said, but the aircraft was repaired and flown back to the U.S. Choron believes King Bird Five Zero was carrying some kind of alien technology aboard that may have caused this incident."

Full story:
On the night (Thule time) of December 23rd, 2001, the Air Traffic Control at Thule AFB began receiving calls from an unidentified aircraft. The weather was horrible... as is usual for Thule... -52 Celcius, with snow and sleet driven by a twenty mile per hour wind, with gusts to thirty five miles per hour... The call letters of the aircraft were badly garbled, as was the voice transmission, which was coming in on an unused (obsolete) harmonic of the standard frequency. The only thing that they could make out clearly was the aircraft's designation... "King Bird Five Zero". This is not a call, or an official designation of any sort, it is the designation of a particular type of aircraft.

The aircraft showed on radar as an intermittent blip of considerable size, although not as large as modern heavy aircraft. Radar also indicated three other things... First, the incoming aircraft was extremely slow- moving, by accepted standards, and secondly, it was extremely low. Any experienced pilot would, if able, get above the current storm front, and remain there until the last possible minute. The front was a big one... extending to an altitude of some 42,000 feet, but this altitude was well inside the maximum ceiling of any known aircraft in service the size of the incoming "visitor." Unless... the "visitor" had sustained damage, such as loss of cabin pressure, and could not rise to this altitude. Finally, there was one other consideration... no military aircraft was scheduled to be incoming at the time, and there were no scheduled civilian flights known to be in the area.

Air Traffic Control at Thule Air Force Base first started making intermittent contact with the aircraft when it was approximately 100 nautical miles out of Thule, over the Atlantic. Somehow, it had simply, very suddenly, "appeared" as a faint "blip"on Radar, fading in and out as it progressed slowly Eastward, right in the midst of the storm. Radio contact had begun at approximately the same time. Messages incoming were regular, but garbled by interference from the foul weather, coming in on a harmonic (side band) of a long unused military frequency. The transmissions were voice only, but the voice appeared to be steady, firm and unconcerned by the horrendous flying conditions prevalent at the aircraft's cruising altitude 30,000 feet. The timing indicated a set pattern of transmission, such as the kind of routine positioning reports used in the days before Radar was either common, or dependable. There was no transponder signal, and no radar signal incoming from the aircraft. Thule tower remained in regular contact with the incoming aircraft for slightly over one hour.

The last message came at 01:07 GMT, at which time the aircraft was a solid radar image, and approximately 10 nautical miles from Thule AFB's main runway, over the lip of the glacier. The message, in clear transmission, stated... "We show to be ten knots out, and should be able to see you... but we can't see you... light up the night..."
Thule AFB is accustomed to having unscheduled visitors… many of whom are in distress. They are capable of and quite willing to “light up the night.” In fact, with all of the emergency lighting in use, the main runway at Thule is clearly visible, a good deal more than ten miles out… in the worst possible weather. They can also set off a radar beacon, which is capable of literally making the hull vibrate on incoming aircraft. None of this, however, proved to be of any value. Immediately afterwards, the inbound craft vanished from Thule's radar screens, and there were no further radio transmissions.
Owing to the conditions... darkness and storm... it was several hours before a search could be mounted for what was assumed to be an aircraft down on the Greenland Glacier. At first light, a search party was dispatched to the last known location of the incoming contact. After a search of approximately two hours, they reported back to Thule AFB, by radio, informing the Search and Rescue Headquarters that they had found the "wreckage" of a US Air Force Boeing B-50D Superfortress Bomber... which had belly landed on the glacier, in approximately four approximately sixteen feet of snow, twelve nautical miles out, in a direct line with Thule AFB's main runway. The crew was in place... dead.
There was no significant damage to the aircraft other than being completely out of fuel. The amount of snow on the surface of the glacier apparently cushioned the impact of the bomber. The crew, according to the logbook, knowing that they were reasonably close to Thule AFB, chose to remain onboard rather than risk the weather... thinking that a search would be imminent.

The aircraft's logbook showed to be up to date until approximately the time of the last transmission received by Thule Air Force Base Air Traffic Control... But... it also showed that the flight had originated at McGuire AFB, New Jersey, on December 22nd, 1948 and that the elapsed time of the flight… the number of hours actually recorded by the crew… was consistent with a flight from McGuire to Thule, at the maximum operational speed of this type aircraft, given the weather conditions prevalent the current time. They were, in fact, only two hours behind schedule, due to the fierce headwind that they appeared to have been fighting. This headwind also accounts for the aircraft's forced landing on the glacier, as the power requirements placed on the engines under such adverse conditions, more than doubled normal consumption. The logbook, which is allegedly up to date until shortly after the time of the planes crash landing, also indicates that the crew was aware of their near proximity to Thule AFB, and expected immediate, or near immediate rescue.
They therefore elected to stay with the craft, rather than venture off toward the Air Base. The condition and composition of the crews uniforms indicate that their chances of survival in the prevalent surface conditions would have been slim to none. Since the B-50D was developed long before the advent of pressure suits, or extremem high altitude flying were more than record-setting novelties ... the crew was equipped only with "normal" winter-issue uniforms of the day, augmented by heavy "B-2" coats. While heavier clothing was available at the time of the flight's supposed origin, none was found onboard. While this seemed strange to the would-be rescuers, research later discovered that the winter of 1948/49 had been considered a "mild" one by Greenland standards, and the issue would have been quite sufficient for that time.

All this aside, the crew seems to have done the logical thing by remaining in the aircraft, where there was some protection from inclement weather. As it was, they seem to have survived for several hours after their landing… Examination on site, and a later Coroner's report allegedly indicates that the crew died from shock and exposure. While the bodies were partially frozen, there was no "frost burn" or other associated damage from prolonged freezing. Time of death was fixed at ten hours, plus or minus two, before discovery, which is consistent with the time of the last radio/radar contact with "incoming" unidentified aircraft by Thule Air Traffic Control.

"Unofficially" the crew and aircraft have been identified as one which went "missing, and was presumed lost" ... presumed to have crashed into the Atlantic, due to "unknown circumstances"... on a routine patrol deployment, “some years ago.” Since downed aircraft are common on Thule, and the nature of the far northern location often means that such aircraft are soon covered over with literally dozens of feet of snow, this “explanation” is plausible.
The aircraft, a type that went completely out of service with the Air Force in the late fifties, was the last propeller driven bomber in the US Air Force inventory. The serial number and log book designation of the recovered aircraft, match the fragmentary transmissions received by Thule AFB Air Traffic Control and match the "lost" flight of 1948.
The Heavy long range B-50 Superfortress was developed from the earlier, Second World War era B-29 Superfortress, the same type of aircraft which delivered the first Atomic Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The primary difference was a slightly larger rudder assembly, and more powerful, turboprop engines. It was an impressive aircraft, for its time … and the last propeller driven bomber ever accepted for service in the US Air Force.


While impressive for its time (see general characteristics below), beyond any doubt the most sophisticated aircraft of it's type then in service, a quick look at the statistics will show that it was ill equipped to handle a major Arctic Storm … being too slow and inefficient in its fuel consumption to “fight its way through,” and lacking the altitude maximums needed to “get above” such a storm. The aircraft also did not have a pressurized cabin. Like all aircraft of this era, the crew depended only on breathing masks, and heavy clothing for comfort, coupled with a cabin heater that operated only when the engines were in use.
According to reports, the aircraft has, since it's recovery, been transported to a maintenance hanger at Thule Air Force Base. It is not badly damaged. The plane landed in heavy snow, and aside from some relatively minor "scarring" and a four slightly bent propeller blades, there is no real damage. It is estimated that the old plane could be flown out of Thule in less than three days ... depending on weather conditions ... and ... if someone could be located who knows how, and has the proper certifications, to fly this type of aircraft. According to rumor, a search for such a person is currently underway. Maintenance reports also allegedly confirm that the cause of the crash was very simple ... out of fuel, and a large aircraft, of this type, can only glide so far ... especially into a twenty to thirty-five mile per hour plus headwind.

The Air Force has supposedly contacted existing next of kin. The statement says that they have found the remains and that they are from a crash that happened "some years ago." The bodies are being "prepared" for return to the US An "official" statements to the press ... not as yet released ... but allegedly scheduled to be released within a few days ... will state that intact wreckage has been found, but will give only the date of departure of the flight and "official" time of loss... 22 December 1948... and no further details.

What is the true story behind King Bird Fifty? The odyssey of the venerable old Cold Warrior poses more questions than answers...
It would appear that "something" swallowed this plane and it's crew in 1948, and spit it out in 2001. There is no evidence that the aircrew was aware of the passage of time, other than normal flight time from McGuire to Thule, plus the two hours or so that they were put behind by the storm. Nor, had the crew, according to reports, aged any. Their apparent ages match the age recorded for them at the time of their departure, over half a century ago.

Is there some kind of natural “vortex”… a “portal” that randomly opens in the fabric of space and time? Are there places in the world in which one can be “swallowed up,” only to be returned … at the same place, in a future or past time… If this is so, then all we know of Physics and the so-called “laws” of nature, are only the beginnings of a dream…
What would have been the case if the crew of King Bird Fifty had survived? What if they had been “rescued”? What would have been their fate? Would it have been the imprisonment of “government secrecy”? Would it have been madness? Both?
Is there some short of "paradox shield" in effect which prevented the crew from surviving the crash? Were they, in effect, already dead when the aircraft landed? Had they been "dead" ever since the aircraft disappeared some fifty-three years ago?
Is the flight of King Bird Fifty some sort of naturally occurring, airborne, "Philadelphia Experiment?"
Is this incident indicative of some sort of "Bermuda Triangle" type anomaly?
Has this kind of thing happened before?

Does someone, in fact, know exactly what happened to King Bird Fifty and her crew? Is it being covered up, like so many other "unexplained" and "unsubstantiated" paranormal occurrences ... for reasons of "national security" or for fear of causing a "panic" ... or is King Bird Fifty the subject (some might say "victim") of some darker, and more well-thought-out scenario ... part of some "experiment" that people are "better off" not knowing about ... some hidden aspect of the "Cold War" from which the general public is being "protected"?
Did the incident happen at all, or is it yet another "mystery" and growing legend of the far north? Is it yet another "tale of the unexplained" ... the kind that seems to simply grow around aviation, as they once flourished around the ships which plied the oceans?
There are always “rumors” … like the “rumors” which surround the Roswell Disc and the Bermuda Triangle ... like the "rumor" about King Bird Fifty. “Rumors” that might never come to light … or … maybe someday, they will.
Who knows? Almost certainly, someone does.

I have now read this article related to Chandra. I find all such things very interesting. This story made me think about Stephen King's excellent story The Langoliers.

How can we ever know the truth behind such mysteries? Something tells me that all such stories are just... stories. Because, if they where true, some more would have came out of it. Someone would know something.

But then again, what would the world be without mysteries? I really liked the story told in the booklet of Chandra as well. Thanks for this interesting article.

Hmm the people who "know" something or have stumbled over something get ridiculed, just like Edgar said in his recent Elektrobeats interview. Or they are about to get 60 years in prison, like Mr. Gary McKinnon.

Interesting info Mars, thanks! Some Chandra info I can contribute: The radio telescope dish on the cover is the Owens Valley Radio Observatory 40-Meter Telescope in Sierra Nevada, California.

Image

On the CalTech website (click on pic) there's info that the telescope played a mayor role in the movie "The Arrival". It's a movie about aliens wanting to terra-form Earth.


And "S.N.M." stands for Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Quite easy to google.

Yes, it may be so. Unfortunately. :-(

3 AM AT THE BORDER OF THE MARSH FROM OKEFENOKEE:

Marsh and Swampland between Florida and Georgia:

Welcome to the
"Land of Trembling Earth"
The Great Okefenokee Swamp, one of America’s most fascinating natural areas, is the largest, intact, un fragmented, wilderness Swamp in North America. "Okefenokee" what Seminoles called "Land of Trembling Earth" is approximately 700 square miles located in the southeast corner of Georgia, U.S.A.
The Okefenokee is crisscrossed by over 120 miles of paddle and motor boat trails. It is a major destination for wetlands nature lovers paddlers and boaters. The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge offers a controlled and limited number of overnight wilderness paddle trail permits. The overnight paddlers permits are issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (the administrative and management Government agency). A good number of wonderful easy to challenging day use paddle boat only trails and plenty of exciting and fun dual use paddle/motor boat trails are readily available for access without the need of a permit.
More from this link:
http://www.okefenokee.com/


from Wikipedia:
The Okefenokee Swamp is a shallow, 438,000 acre (1,770 km²), peat-filled wetland straddling the Georgia–Florida border in the United States. A majority of the swamp is protected by the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and the Okefenokee Wilderness. The Okefenokee Swamp is considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia. The Okefenokee is the largest peat-based "blackwater" swamp in North America, and one of the largest in the world.

Location and history:
The name comes from the Hitchiti okifanô:ki, meaning "bubbling water",[1] or alternatively "trembling earth" [2], a reference to its spongy bogs. The swamp was formed over the past 6,500 years by the accumulation of peat in a shallow basin on the edge of an ancient Atlantic coastal terrace, the geological relic of a Pleistocene estuary. The swamp is bordered by Trail Ridge, a strip of elevated land believed to have formed as coastal dunes or an offshore barrier island. The St. Marys River and the Suwannee River both originate in the swamp. The Suwannee River originates as stream channels in the heart of Okefenokee Swamp and drains at least 90% of the swamp's watershed southwest towards the Gulf of Mexico. The St. Marys River, which drains only 5–10% of the swamp's southeastern corner, flows south along the western side of Trail Ridge, through the ridge at St. Marys River Shoals, and north again along the eastern side of Trail Ridge before turning east to the Atlantic. The Suwanee Canal was dug across the swamp in the late nineteenth century in a failed attempt to drain the Okefenokee. After the company's bankruptcy, most of the swamp was purchased by the Hebard family of Philadelphia, who conducted extensive cypress logging operations from 1909 to 1927. Several other logging companies also ran train tracks into the swamp until 1942, remnants of which can still be seen crossing swamp waterways. On the west side of the swamp, at Billy's Island, logging equipment and other artifacts remain of a 1920s logging town of 600 residents. Most of the Okefenokee Swamp is included in the 403,000 acre (1630 km²) Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

It may refer to one of the following:

wikipedia.org wrote:
A Streetcar Named Desire (play), a 1947 play by Tennessee Williams

A Streetcar Named Desire (1951 film), directed by Elia Kazan, starring Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh

A Streetcar Named Desire (1984 film), starring Ann-Margret and Treat Williams

A Streetcar Named Desire (1995 film), starring Alec Baldwin and Jessica Lange

A Streetcar Named Desire (opera), a 1995 opera adaptation by André Previn

A Streetcar Named Desire (ballet), a 1993 ballet starring Bridget Breiner


My guess is the Tennesse Williams play.
