These Physicists Want to Send Your DNA Into Space With Lasers
Space is either infinite, or incredibly vast. So it stands to reason that Earth is not the only planet with life, and humans are not the only intelligent species.
But those hypothetical species have been hard to reach so far. Which is probably because of all the space between them and Earth. Other intelligent life might be so far away that humans could be extinct by the time our sluggish and sparse satellites reach them. A better option would be sending out millions of messengers at the speed of light, in all directions. And if we Earthlings pitch in a meager $100,000, a few scientists promise to turn our lonely planet into an interstellar beacon.
“If your civilization wanted to broadcast its presence, the smartest approach is to signal like a lighthouse,” says Philip Lubin, professor of astrophysics and cosmology at UC Santa Barbara. Today, Lubin and his graduate student Travis Brashears are launching Voices of Humanity, a crowdfunded campaign that aims to um … launch as much human culture as possible into space.
Which would start modestly. The pair’s base goal of $30,000 would allow them to put tiny, wafer-thin satellites into low Earth orbit. Backers can put some data onboard, depending on how much they pledge. Small money will buy enough space for your most fire tweet, while bigger donors can upload movies, novels, music, or even their own DNA sequences. Brashears says their eventual goal is to get these wafer sats on board every rocket leaving Earth. Although they’d initially be confined to orbiting Earth, eventually they could end up around Mars, Jupiter, or anywhere future missions might visit.
But that’s a yawn compared to their stretch goal. With $100,000, Lubin and Brashears plan to build a high-powered laser somewhere on Earth capable of sending light-based messages into space. With this, outer space could become a virtual cloud for humanity’s most prized data. “The packet of photons could contain your unique DNA sequence, sent out forever into the universe as ones and zeros, just like computer code,” says Lubin. The laser would achieve this binary sequence by rapidly flashing on and off.
This would use the same technology as the Breakthrough Starshot. Announced earlier this year, Breakthrough Starshot is a $100 million initiative to develop lasers capable of pushing tiny, lightweight satellites to 20 percent of the speed of light. But the lasers would also be super powerful, and less likely to fade out over the vast distances in space.
On the other hand, what if our species’ attempt at cultural seeding goes awry? Maybe the aliens hate Bollywood dancing. Or get annoyed at Romeo and Juliet’s emo drama. What if the beam bearing Tupac’s greatest hits goes thumping through a solar system inhabited by a grumpy AI hive mind with the temperament of Clint Eastwood’s character from Gran Torino? Or even worse. “Say some alien species picks up Nick Stoctkon’s DNA sequence, then we get invaded by a clone army of Nick Stocktons,” says Lubin.
Or maybe the the problems begin right here on Earth. If any of you misanthropes want to erase some segment of human endeavor from the cosmic record, Lubin says he’s open to firing a laser-encoded message right into a black hole.
"The protests and the violence started as a response to what has been happening in inner cities: the police killing innocent people. That was the heavily promoted media and political narrative."
"And cops-killing-innocent-black-people was framed as the biggest problem of inner cities."
"Cops shooting innocent people in inner cities does NOT describe the root of what’s been going on in American ghettoes."
"Loss of manufacturing jobs, owing to Globalist trade treaties; gang crime; drugs; poverty; absolute dependence on government for survival—now you’re talking about the roots of the devastation."
"But that wasn’t the preferred narrative."
"So instead, Black Lives Matter (BLM) and affiliated groups have received special attention from above: the President, the US Attorney General, George $oros, and so on."
"Among others, to present the entire picture of inner cities in America as: cops killing innocent people."
"It’s a form of community organizing. Find an issue, any issue that ignites the population of the target group, push it, inflame it, get people out on the street, provoke violence."
"End game? The elite end game? Make gun ownership illegal. Install what amounts to a national police force, where every community is ultimately run from the federal level."
"Does this do anything to improve life in inner cities?"
"Of course not. That was never the true goal."
"All this guidance and funding from above for BLM and similar groups…it’s not about making life better for anyone."
"There are untold numbers of inner-city residents, at this very moment, holed up in their homes, who have been hoping for real solutions for decades. And they know, as they watch the street protests and street violence unfolding, day after day, that nothing good is going to come out of this. They know. But nobody is listening to them."
"They’re the silent majority. The people on streets (some of whom have been bused in from other places) are the headline grabbers."
"And then put a few snipers and shooters into the mix, and you have an irresistible media propaganda exploitation campaign. Otherwise known as the news. And you have cops dying."
"The landscape of the Presidential season is a perfect backdrop. Hillary (“the healer”) vs. Trump (“he’s to blame for everything”)."
"Obama’s agenda in all this isn’t difficult to spot. During his term in office, he’s continued to permit the federal government to militarize police forces all over the country. Heavier weapons and equipment, fit for a full-bore Army."
"Why would he allow this, unless he were aiming toward an escalation of conflict between citizens and cops? And where would the conflict focus most fully? In inner cities. And who would ultimately win? The police/army, of course."
"Meanwhile, from his elevated position, he encourages BLM protests."
Jon Rappoport has worked as a free-lance investigative reporter for 30 years.
He has written articles on politics, health, media, culture and art for LA Weekly, Spin Magazine, Stern, Village Voice, Nexus, CBS Healthwatch, and other newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe.
In 1982, the LA Weekly submitted his name for a Pulitzer prize, for his interview with the president of El Salvador University, where the military had taken over the campus.
Jon has hosted, produced, and written radio programs and segments in Los Angeles and Las Vegas (KPFK, KLAV). He has appeared as a guest on over 200 radio and television programs, including ABC’s Nightline, Tony Brown’s Journal (PBS), and Hard Copy.
In 1994, Jon ran for a seat in the US Congress from the 29th district in Los Angeles. After six months of campaigning, on a very small budget, he garnered 20 percent of the vote running against an incumbent who had occupied his seat for 20 years.
In 1996, Jon started The Great Boycott, against eight corporate chemical giants: Monsanto, Dow, Du Pont, Bayer, Hoechst, Rhone-Poulenc, Imperial Chemical Industries, and Ciba-Geigy. The Boycott continues to operate today.
Jon has lectured extensively all over the US on the question: Who runs the world and what can we do about it?
Since launching NoMoreFakeNews.com in 2000 (note: the 2000 – 2009 archive is [to be re-instated]), Jon has operated largely away from the mainstream because, as he puts it, “My research was not friendly to the conventional media.”
Over the last 30 years, Jon’s independent research has encompassed such areas as: deep politics, conspiracies, alternative health, the potential of the human imagination, mind control, the medical cartel, symbology, and solutions to the takeover of the planet by hidden elites.
A painter, Jon’s work has been shown in galleries in Los Angeles and New York. His poetry has been published by The Massachusetts Review. He is a graduate of Amherst College (BA, Philosophy), and lives with his wife, Laura, in San Diego.
Jon maintains a consulting practice for private clients, the purpose of which is the expansion of personal creative power.
The UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) that flew on July 17 over northern Israel was a “Yasir’ drone made in Iran that was launched from a Hizballah base in Syria’s Qalamoun Mountains, some 60km from central Golan. This is reported by debkafile military and intelligence sources. The Yasir can reach an altitude of 5,000 feet, operate in a 200km radius and stay aloft for 8 hours. There is no information as to whether it was launched by a Iranian or a Hizballah team. This UAV displayed exceptional maneuverability, unlike most drones, due it is believed to the advanced US electronic systems installed by reverse engineering of the American US ScanEagle drone that was downed intact over Iran on Dec. 17, 2012. Our military and intelligence sources say this fundamental upgrade was carried out under the instruction of Chinese cyber warfare specialists. The IDF, the Israeli air force and other western armies, including the US Air Force, are anxiously trying to find out how many replicas of the purloined US ScanEagle the Iranians have been able to manufacture. They all watched the Iranian drone’s performance in evading Israeli air force jets and helicopters and ducking air-to-air missiles and Patriot surface-to-aircraft missiles before flying back to Syria after spending the best part of an hour over the Golan and Upper Galilee. On October 2013, when Lt. Gen. Viktor Bondarev, the Russian Air Force Commander, visited Tehran, the Iranians made him a gift of a drone into which the sophisticated US electronic systems were implanted.
This would explain why the Russian command in Syria omitted to intervene or warn Israel of the approach of an alien UAV from Syria - in breach of the coordination agreement between Israel and Russia. debkafile’s military sources add that the two Patriot missiles fired at the drone veered off course and crashed into each other. This was most probably one of the effects caused by the Iranian-Hizballah drone’s pirated US electronic capabilities.
