Thousands of meteorites have fallen to Earth and people have not fallen ill. Why now? The early reports of the meteor strike in Peru were surrounded by reports of illness that parallel that of radiation sickness.
In a report entitled, "Mystery Illness After 'Meteorite' Hits Peru Village" the symptoms were described as follows:
"Residents complained of headaches and vomiting brought on by a "strange odor," local health department official Jorge Lopez told Peruvian radio RPP. Seven policemen who went to check on the reports also became ill and had to be given oxygen before being hospitalized, Lopez said."
Yet another part of the same report stated, "villagers were startled by an explosion and a fireball that many were convinced was an airplane crashing..." This report leads one to believe that it is possibly man-made in origin. Let us continue.
The AP reported, "Other details don't add up, they said — such as witness accounts of water in the muddy crater boiling for 10 minutes from the heat. Meteorites are actually cold when they hit Earth, astronomists say, since their outer layers burn up and fall away before impact."
Another story reported. "There are fumes of a substance that we cannot determine, perhaps sulfur or ammonia," said Jorge Lopez, Health Director for the Puno area, to EFE, admitting that there is the 'latent danger' that further health woes may be visited upon the locals."
Now let's follow this story logically.
- Illness corresponds strongly to radiation poisoning
- Witnesses were convinced it was a plane crash (something man-made?)
- Water in the muddy crater boiling for 10 minutes from the heat. (suggests fuel or heat source)
- There are fumes of a substance that cannot be determined
Above we find what seems to be the aftermath of a downed military satellite. Since we know that the secret KH-13 was nuclear powered this would explain the radiation sickness. Witnesses thought it was man-made. Water boiling after the impact suggests heat from a power source-perhaps a nuclear reactor? Fumes not determined-could this be hydrazine fuel for course corrections and re-targeting ? (or re-tasking)
All of this seems to add up to only one thing-a military satellite.
Since it struck land and not the ocean it would seem quite possible that this satellite was scuttled in a hurry. Satellites that have outlived their usefulness are brought down in remote locations (such as over an ocean) when possible and the media is alerted well in advance.
Since it is well known that this administration wants to pre-emptively attack Iran against the recommendations of top brass in the Pentagon it is no stretch to surmise that there are opposing factions between the present administration and the military. The US military has few nuclear powered satellites, and fewer yet that might play a role in any pre-emptive strike against Iran.
You might recall a story I broke about the B-52's loaded with nuclear tipped cruise missiles and the big problems with the official explanation. These cruise missiles rely upon satellite data for targeting and telemetry. This was a story of infighting between the administration and top brass as well.
There is also another not so well known and unsettling story of infighting in another article which I covered - Feds Commandeer NORAD For Continuity Of Govt! There are many in the military (and the general US population) who resent and oppose the administration taking over the fortress of America's security.
In light of all that is going on there is only one satellite that seems to fill the bill. It is the secret KH-13 which is used for target acquisition and damage assessment.
Here is a brief from the CENTER FOR DEFENSE INFORMATION
"KH13 An electro-optical/IR satellite, it is an improved version of the KH12 that, unlike previous models, is undetectable by radar or infrared sensors as a safeguard against the possible use of anti-satellite weapons.
8X The 8X was launched in May 1999 in the first of a likely series of 24 multi-function satellites that will eventually cover the globe, passing over any given spot of the planet every 15 minutes. Featuring superior optics, these satellites are typically sent into a high "Molniya" orbit, an elongated, elliptical path where the satellite's speed slows down dramatically at the apogee. Its high quality sensors compensate for the longer ranges resulting from its higher altitude. It also has an adjustable dwell capability, making it useful for real-time tactical battlefield observation. One of the drawbacks, however, is the less frequent, elliptical orbit, which means that a target will have a longer window of time in which people or vehicles can maneuver unobserved. The 8X carries significantly larger fuel tanks (hydrazine) than the KH series and can be refueled by the Space Shuttle. Each adjustment to its orbit will burn up a large portion of fuel, however, due to the satellite's enormous mass."
It's mass is approximately 40, 000 pounds. Massive enough to remain intact during re-entry and blast a crater 60 feet wide by 13 feet deep.
As far as I can tell there are no other operational satellites that could do what happened in Peru.
Note for the skeptics in the comments section: Below is the crater from the Flight 93 crash of 911. There was little debris recovered (and this 757 was twelve times more massive than the KH-13 satellite) and left a big crater. Below is a pic of the Peru meteor crater. Again there was little or no debris.
Some of the debris from the Pennsylvania crash site - such as the Flight 93 flight recorder was buried under over 7 feet of earth. (So they tell us)
A satellite re-entering the Earth's atmosphere would have oblated (melted) at high altitude in large part leaving a semi-molten hulk which no doubt would have been buried deep in soft wet soil. This crater has not yet been excavated which explains why no debris has been found.
In the comments below a visitor has postulated that the crater was simply a volcanic vent. If this is the case we must discard eyewittness sightings and testimony. Are you telling me based on your criteria (see comments section below) that the Flight 93 crater was a volcanic vent also?
