22 September 2014. American Cosmonauts Have to Go into Space on Russian Spaceships

Art and our study of it, and faith and religion, are eternal, and as long as mankind lives, it will have a keen yearning to probe deeper into the essence of it all.

The penetration of primitive Western religious notions into our lives is a phenomenon extremely dangerous to Russian culture. A country that has given much to world culture (remember Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, and many others), is transformed into a place where American scum congregate. Therefore, in this regard, one can understand the French, who protect their culture and language, and the Chinese, who decided to prevent the “Westernisation” of their society. Unfortunately, today, our culture and morality have become something of secondary importance, and all this is more and more worrying… it appears that people have lost their consciences. There’s a new “truism” in our lives… knocking out the maximum profit by any means, but that leads to the death of moral evaluation, ethical behaviour, and principled motivation for actions, without which, a healthy society can’t exist.

The Soyuz TMA-14M crew is cosmonauts Aleksandr Samokutyayev, Yelena Serova, and American Barry Wilmore, who stand by a model of the Soyuz-FG rocket at the Baikonur Space Centre in Kazakhstan. Note well that American cosmonauts have to go into space on Russian craft, as the USA wasted its money on useless wars, giveaways to the Affluent Effluent, and a bloated prison and police system (the USA is the Prison House of All the Nations by per capita count, by the way). This puts a different face on the rants of Rich Lowry, George Will, Patrick Buchanan, and Rod Dreher, doesn’t it? Americans have to ride Russian spacecraft to the cosmos so that the USA can pretend that it’s the SOLE SUPERPOWER. Now, kids, THAT’S an unmitigated crock o’ shit…

Puts a new light on “sanctions”, doesn’t it?

______________________________

On 2 July, a Proton-M transport rocket, launched from the Baikonur Cosmodromefailed a minute after lift-off. Over the past two and a half years, this is the seventh failed Russian space launch. See our infographic for the specifications of the Proton-M rocket. The Proton-M heavy-duty Launch Vehicle (LV) is designed to launch an unmanned spacecraft into Earth orbit and then into space. The Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Centre developed the vehicle, which Roskosmos uses to launch Russian and foreign government and commercial spacecraft. Proton-M is the workhorse of the Russian space programme; at present, it’s carrying the GLONASS satellite system and Ekpress communications satellites, which will provide coverage all over Russia. Read more >> For now, Proton-M launches are on hold, after two or three days, it’ll be clear what happened to the rocket. Indeed, it’s a fairly straightforward and well-proven piece of equipment. A space programme source said, “It’s clear that it wasn’t a glitch with the rocket; it was human error”.
