The meaning of the problem of overpopulation of the Earth came back in the 18th century. Demographer Thomas Malthus proposed the theory that overpopulation of the planet, which has become the cradle of mankind, is inevitable, and this will eventually lead to starvation, degradation of homo sapiens as a species and its disappearance. The scientist’s gloomy forecasts did not come true due to constantly developing medicine, first of all, mass vaccination, mechanization of agriculture, technology of deep freezing of products and wide development of the chemical industry.
For the first time, China received laser echoes from all mirror reflectors on the Moon (A15, A14, A11, L17, L21). The information became available via 6do news on December 8. The research group successfully completed laser distance measurements between Earth and the moon. The first experiment by China took place in 2018 with a 1.2-meter telescope laser ranging system. Clearly, it is not competitive with the US results achieved in the same field.
China has been actively involved in espionage against Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. In the last century, China has not been known for many inventions in the space field, but instead as been a successful copycat. The route to copying patented and classified inventions leads to espionage. The facts prove themselves. Even though China has the highest numbers of STEM grads under President’s Xi politics, still China is not a leader in the field. Also, Chinese education focuses on being a great follower, but not a leader, since the communist model does not allow room for individualistic views.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, also called the is an intergovernmental military alliance between 29 North American and European countries. The organization implements the North Atlantic Treaty that was signed on 4 April 1949. It is expected that NATO will acknowledge space as NATO’s new operational sphere at these meetings.
On November 14, the NASA Inspector General Office of Audits published a report entitled NASA’s Management of Crew Transportation to the International Space Station. The audit data was collected from February 2019 to November 2019 as per the audit standards. One of the main goals of the audit is to compare the piloted programs by Boeing, Space X and Soyuz.
There is a global interest in space travel and the question experts are discussing is “what type of fuel should the space reactors run on?” Commercial projects, including Elon Musk’s SpaceX, desire the conquering of other planets and even creating space colonies on the moon. Last year, SpaceX announced fashion innovator and Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa will be the first private passenger to fly around the Moon in 2023.
Roskosmos and Russian space programs have been experiencing certain difficulties for some time. The Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Activities is a state corporation responsible for the wide range and types of space flights and cosmonautics programs for the Russian Federation. Russia is unfortunately known for corruption and theft.
Recently, construction of the new Vostochny Cosmodrome resulted in the theft of 11 billion roubles ($171.3 million). This was confirmed by Russian press secretary Dmitriy Peskov, a Russian diplomat, translator and Turkologist. Since 2012, Peskov has been the Press Secretary for the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin.
Russia declassified additional information about weapons in space the Soviets who had a keen interest in defense projects in space. The Cold War and the arms race were projected to take place in the space. Hence, the development of the weapons for such war. In the early 1970s, the Soviets launched a space station for defense purposes– Almaz, which contained the artillery system Chit-1. The system was one of a kind. The Almaz program was a highly secret Soviet military space station program begun in the early 1960s. Three crewed military reconnaissance stations were launched between 1973 and 1976: Salyut 2, Salyut 3 and Salyut 5.
Russia is developing a reusable rocket that is expected to be a competitor to the American made Falcon 9 rocket, a two-stage-to-orbit medium lift launch vehicle. The Falcon 9 is designed and manufactured by SpaceX, a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation services company headquartered in Hawthorne, California. It was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk with the goal of reducing space transportation costs to enable the colonization of Mars. It is powered by Merlin engines, also developed by SpaceX, burning liquid oxygen and rocket-grade kerosene propellants. Falcon-9 is also the first ever reusable rocket.
Russia has announced the first functioning prototype of the Quantum Computer. The Quantum computing idea began in the 1980s when physicist Paul Benioff proposed a quantum mechanical model of the Turing machine. The field of quantum computing is closely related to quantum information science, which includes quantum cryptography and quantum communication.
The Russian scientists in the Department of Theoretical Mechanics, Samara National Research University discovered an effective method to deal with space debris. Samara National Research University is one of Russia’s leading engineering and technical institutions. It is located in the City of Samara.
Roskosmos posted recent ideas they’ve received pertaining to moon travel. The Roscosmos is a state corporation for space activities. It is a Russian corporation responsible for a wide range and types of space flights and programs.
A Russian scientist, Alexander Mayboroda, Director of Avanta Consulting in Rostov-On-Don, offered his engineering solutions. He has a myriad of patents pertaining to space. The most recent one being a “Method for Delivering Cargoes into Space and a System for Implementation of Same.” Rostov-on-Don is a port city and the administrative center of Rostov Oblast, the Southern Federal District of Russia.
Russia announced their intention to create an electrode-less plasma rocket engine prototype. The engine will be made by the Russian Kurchatov Institute with a target completion date of 2021. The Kurchatov Institute is one of the leading entities in the field of nuclear energy research and development. It is named after Igor Kurchatov, who was widely known as the director of the Soviet atomic bomb project and one of the top nuclear physicists. Kurchatov is known as the “father of the Soviet atomic bomb” and later, “the father of the Soviet Nuclear Missile.
The Soviet/Russian space agency Roscosmos has declassified important documents containing information about the race to the moon. The release is timed to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the first trip to the moon. The never seen before documentation contains engine specifications and analysis as well as the original thoughts and data of the Soviet engineers and designers.
Astronomers have been so busy observing a mysterious object in deep space that they’re overlooking dangerous nearby asteroids with the potential of hitting the Earth, sometimes only noticing them as they strike or zoom past the planet.
Object C/2019 Q4 was first discovered on August 30 by amateur Ukrainian astronomer Gennady Borisov, and scientists have been baffled by it ever since. At first, the consensus was that it’s a giant space rock which originated in our own solar system. But, its composition remains a mystery and astronomers now believe it’s an interstellar traveler, only the second to have been discovered.
On the eve of Hanuman Jayanthi, the importance of Hanuman Chalisa is worthwhile to recall. The half of first Choupai (Jai Hanuman Gyan Guna Sagar) is explored and brief of this is described. Veda, Upanishad and Bhagwad Gita all deals with involution and evolution. AIW (Ancient Indian Wisdom) clarifies that human being are coming from Bindu (Nuclei) containing all the characteristics (Swaroopa) of supreme reality (Permatma). After inception, human body starts developing from a Bindu in the form of causal body, subtle body and gross body till youth hood is achieved. After this (achieving youth hood) the evolution process should be started to reach the supreme reality (Permatma or Ram). The same is explored in Hanuman Chalisa. How?
An image recently returned to NASA by the Curiosity Rover appears similar to (for lack of a better description) PVC-style plumbing pipe found here on Earth. Is it evidence of an advanced civilization which went extinct somewhere in the deep history of Mars? The photo, reproduced and enlarged in the picture above, shows a distinctly pipe-like shape inconsistent with the surrounding rocks and unusual for its lengthy, rounded and ramrod-straight form and appearance. In other words, it doesn’t look like it belongs there.
Artificial Intelligence and Cosmic Intelligence are widely used in Science as well as Spirituality. In Science, AI has discovered the classical theory and because of CI, the Quantum theory is evolved. In Spiritual world, AI is covered till we are under the grip of Prakriti or Shakti (energy); whereas, CI is achieved when we experience the functional aspects of Soul. The common platform for Science and Spirituality can be built by understanding mind (CI) or Prana or Energy (AI). This is because, both Science and Spirituality has the basic approach of Space (United of Mind) and energy (Prana or Unification of prevailing forces in the Universe).
Space war, or technical warfare is silently being waged all around us. On July 13th, 2019 (this past weekend) the European Union’s (EU’S) Galileo satellite went, or was taken offline. Galileo is owned by the collective European Union, managed and operated by the European Space Agency, and is used for nonmilitary, scientific, and civilian purposes.
