The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Controversial Maine rocket launch facility in the news



While some in Steuben invite BluShift Aerospace's plans for a rocket hub, others say it will harm fisheries and pollute the Gulf of Maine.

Take a look at the comments after the video. So far almost all say no to this negative toxic rocket plan. 

The head of BluShift Aerospace (Sascha Deri) admitted last Sunday at our workshop during the Common Ground Fair that he will be getting funding from the Space Force and NASA. Virtually all NASA space missions are 'dual use' meaning they serve military and civilian purposes at the same time.

How does that fit with Deri's past claims that his rockets will only launch civilian satellites? Getting Space Force funding to launch military reconnaissance and targeting satellites belies his previous claims.

Deri is requesting permission to launch 34 rockets a year - within view of one of America's favorite national parks at Acadia.

The lobster fishing community of Jonesport turned Deri down before he went on to Stuben here in Maine and gave them the hard sell.

Most Maine citizens know little to nothing about this proposed rocket launch facility in our state. It is our collective responsibility to change that fact ASAP.
