Will the Cassini Space probe be used as a nuclear trigger to ignite Saturn and terraform its moons for human colonization? – Exopolitics Comment #55


A paper titled “The Lucifer Project” has recently emerged which claims that NASA is very likely to deliberately direct the Cassini space probe into Saturn’s dense atmosphere where it will destruct. This is to take place soon after the termination of Cassini’s four year monitoring mission in June 2008 when Cassini is in a polar orbit of Saturn (see: ). The paper’s author contends this will be a secret effort to use the Cassini’s plutonium fuel rods as a fission device to generate a runaway nuclear fusion process on Saturn that would trigger the emergence of a new sun. The new sun would enable the moons of Saturn to be heated possibly making them suitable for colonization and other uses by humanity. On the other hand, the creation of a new sun would generate a shock wave of hydrogen and other particles that could have devastating effects on Earth. In order to fully evaluate the radical views presented in “The Lucifer Project” it is best to begin with Richard Hoagland’s analysis of the Galileo space probe’s controlled descent into Jupiter’s equatorial region in 2003 where it was destroyed in a similar manner to what is projected for Cassini (see: ).

Hoagland argues that the appearance of a dark splotch a month after Galileo’s descent on September 21, 2003 is circumstantial evidence for a far reaching theory proposed by a Dutch engineer, Jacco Van der Worp, that Galileo’s plutonium power rods would implode due to the high pressures deep inside Jupiter’s atmosphere. The implosion would create a highly efficient fission bomb that could trigger a runaway fusion effect that would ignite Jupiter into a new sun. In his original article, Van der Worp predicted that the hydrogen particles accompanying the initial blast from an ignited Jupiter would cause a catastrophic series of events on Earth that might qualify as an extinction level event (see: ).

Hoagland’s analysis of Van der Worp’s thesis is quite thorough and he gives a good explanation for why it is feasible. Hoagland dealt with many of the scientific criticisms against Van der Worp’s thesis and found they did not rule out the scenario predicted by Van der Worp. While the plutonium isotope (Pu-238) used to power the Galileo is not the same isotope used in making atomic bombs (Pu-239), the intense pressures in Jupiter’s atmosphere and the spontaneous creation of (Pu-239) as Galileo used its Pu-238 over the 15 years since its launch in 1989, made it possible for a fission reaction to occur.

Hoagland also describes a plausible reason for why there was a time lag between the descent of Galileo on September 21, 2003 and the initial observation of the blotchy dark spot on Jupiter on October 19, 2003 by the astronomer Olivier Meeckers (see: ). Basically, after the destruction of most of the Galileo probe through burning up in the atmosphere, the high temperature resistant protective casing of the plutonium fuel rods would survive and continue to descend. Eventually, due to the thick atmosphere, the surviving plutonium rods would reach a terminal velocity of one mile per hour which would require close to a month for them to reach the critical depth upon which the atmospheric pressure would cause the plutonium rods to implode thereby generating a nuclear fission reaction. If Van der Worp and Hoagland are correct, Galileo’s plutonium rods created a powerful fission device whose detonation dwarfed the Hiroshima bomb thereby causing the dark splotch on Jupiter observed by astronomers. Fortunately, the fission bomb did not cause a runaway nuclear fusion process that would have led to Jupiter becoming a new sun, and would have caused unimaginable catastrophic effects on Earth.

Van der Worp considered the controlled descent of Galileo to be an unnecessary risk on the part of NASA and an independent scientific board that did not properly consider the potential effects of triggering a runaway fusion process on Jupiter. NASA’s decision to dispose of Galileo by sending it to Jupiter was confirmed by an independent science board in 2002 (see: ). What Van der Worp did not consider was that a runaway nuclear fusion effect was in fact secretly planned by those ultimately responsible for the decision to direct Galileo into Jupiter.

Such a possibility was briefly mentioned by Hoagland at the conclusion of his paper who referred to the scenario in Arthur C. Clark’s 2010 where Jupiter is ignited by a mysterious monolith into a new sun. The plan to create a new star in our solar system through artificial means has been termed the “Lucifer Project” since Clark called the new companion star Lucifer (see: ). The Lucifer Project was first publicly mentioned by William Cooper in his 1991 book, Behold a Pale Horse (p. 72). Cooper stated that at the end of its mission, the Galileo probe would be sent into a controlled descent into Jupiter whereby its plutonium fuel rods would implode to create a fission bomb that would trigger the emergence of a new sun, Lucifer. The new sun would warm up the nearby moons of Jupiter possibly making them habitable for space colonization. Cooper claims he witnessed documentation for Project Lucifer back in the early 1970′s when working on the intelligence briefing team for the Commander of the Pacific Fleet. What makes Cooper’s 1991 claim astonishing is that at the time of its 1989 launch and subsequently, NASA was claiming that other options than a Jupiter hit were possible such as allowing Galileo fly off into deep space (see ).

The circumstantial evidence pointed out by Hoagland suggests that the only destructive effect of the Galileo probe’s descent was a large dark blotch the size of earth, perhaps the legacy of a failed effort to cause a runaway fusion process through a nuclear fission bomb. The evidence gives credence to Cooper’s 1991 prediction and suggests that the Lucifer Project was real though ultimately unsuccessfully implemented at the end of the Galileo mission.

The recent paper mentioned earlier, “The Lucifer Project”, discusses what appears to be either a new act of “unnecessary risk” taking on the part of NASA or a new attempt to implement the Lucifer Project. The anonymous author claims that NASA will target the Cassini probe into Saturn at the termination of its four year monitoring mission in June 2008. While NASA has not yet announced that it will destroy Cassini by sending it into Saturn, it is very highly likely that the same factors that led to Galileo being destroyed in Jupiter’s atmosphere, will dictate that Cassini will be sent to Saturn for its eventual destruction. These factors revolve around the potential contamination of life bearing moons such as Titan if the Cassini mission were prolonged and the spacecraft were to malfunction while orbiting the Saturnian system. In a highly significant paper that created a powerful precedent for the environmental risks to future habitable planets or moons, a National Research Council committee in 2000 recommended that all efforts must be made to avoid possible contamination to Europa or Io by the Galileo space probe (see: ). This precedent is very likely to be applied in a decision to avoid any future risk to Titan by sending Cassini into Saturn’s dense atmosphere after completing its mission.

Like the earlier Galileo probe, Cassini has plutonium fuel rods which upon implosion could create a powerful nuclear fission detonation on Saturn. Due to the 72 lbs of plutonium on Cassini, 50% more than the 48lbs on Galileo, and the less dense atmospheric pressures on Saturn which has only 30% of Jupiter’s mass, Saturn is a better host for a runaway nuclear fusion process than Jupiter according to the author of “The Lucifer Project”. If Saturn were to be ignited, it would create a gigantic pulse of hydrogen and other particles as up to 10% of its mass was cast off, and would eventually reach the Earth with possibly catastrophic consequences.

In conclusion, the potential for a runaway nuclear fusion process that would ignite Saturn as a new sun, Lucifer, appears to be a genuine concern. There is strong reason to believe that there was an attempt in 2003 to ignite Jupiter as the circumstantial evidence suggests. This attempt failed to do anything more than produce a dark spot over an area the size of the Earth than has been observed by astronomers. It may be that a new effort is underway using the Cassini mission as the cover for another attempt to implement the Project Lucifer. The author of “Project Lucifer” is alerting the public to such a possibility even though NASA has yet to announce its plans after Cassini completes its mission. If Cassini is targeted towards Saturn, any resulting catastrophic series of events and the novelty of a new sun being created might produce the right political and social circumstances for a significant erosion of individual liberties. The imposition of draconian national security procedures to deal with unfolding events would dwarf in proportion previous false flag operations such as 911 which have witnessed an undesirable increase in the influence of national security organizations as a result of catastrophic events (see: ).

The general public is urged to familiarize themselves with the issues concerning the possible terraforming of Saturn’s moons by an artificially contrived nuclear fusion process on Saturn itself. While there may be long term public benefit from terraforming Saturn’s moons, such a policy needs to be publicly debated and not secretly implemented given the dangers involved. Furthermore, all information concerning Project Lucifer and the early unsuccessful effort to ignite Jupiter by the use of Galileo as a nuclear device needs to also be released to the public. The potential for catastrophic events to occur on Earth as a result of a successful effort to ignite Saturn should not be lightly dismissed due to 10% of Saturn’s mass possibly being ejected in an initial blast. It is highly recommended that public pressure is applied on NASA officials not to approve the Cassini mission being deliberated targeted at Saturn for self-destruction, and that its mission is prolonged until a suitable way is found to safely dispose of the craft and its dangerous plutonium fuel.

    old old propaganda. Saturn does not have the characteristics to be ignited into a sun. Of course today’s fiction serves as the truth for many of the populace. Their lives must be so boring that they cling to anything.

    The second decade of the 21st century will certainly be known as the biggest bullsh#t era ever.

    Sometime ago I had the opportunity to meet William Cooper and his
    wife Annie. It was part of my job to verify whether this man did indeed speak
    the truth or was just another person seeking fame and fortune. What I found
    was a rugged, bulldog, driven individual who was kind, thoughtful and
    tenderhearted. He was truly concerned about you and your welfare.
    Bill knew that people were badly informed by a society which spoon-feeds
    you deception until there is no distinction between fiction and reality. He sees
    what many other[s] see happening, and he is not afraid to do something about
    There are many who do not want you to know what Bill has to say. They
    have tried many times to stop him from saying it. The scars on his face and
    the loss of his leg are his badges of sincerity on your behalf.
    No one becomes popular by telling people the truth. History records
    what happened to the true prophets of the past. However, some have listened
    to their warnings and were not caught off-guard. Others have put their heads
    in the sand and refused to listen.
    Bill has it together, and has put it together for you so you can also be
    one of the informed of the world. A well informed person can make the right
    decision. William Cooper has my vote of approval because I cared enough to
    find out who the man is. Now is your opportunity.
    There have been many related sequential coincidences all throughout
    my life, incidents that by themselves would have led nowhere. Statistically,
    the odds against the same or a related sequence of events happening to
    one individual are astronomically high. It is this series of incidents that
    have convinced me that God has had a hand in my life. I do not believe in
    fate. I do not believe in accidents.
    I cannot and will not accept the theory that long sequences of unrelated
    accidents determine world events. It is inconceivable that those with
    power and wealth would not band together with a common bond, a common
    interest, and a long-range plan to decide and direct the future of the
    world. For those with the resources, to do otherwise would be totally
    irresponsible. I know that I would be the first to organize a conspiracy to
    control the outcome of the future, if I were such a person and a conspiracy
    did not yet exist. I would do it in an attempt to ensure the survival of the
    principles in which I believe, the survival of my family, my survival, and
    the survival of the human race, if for no other reason.
    I believe, therefore, that a grand game of chess is being played on a
    level that we can barely imagine, and we are the pawns. Pawns are valuable
    only under certain circumstances and are frequently sacrificed to gain
    an advantage. Anyone who has studied military strategy is familiar with
    the concept of sacrifice. Those who have seriously studied history have
    probably discovered the real reason we go to war on a regularly scheduled
    Before reading this book I advise you to play at least two complete
    games of chess. You must learn the rules THEY play by. You must realize
    objectively that some pieces are more valuable than others and that the
    king is the most valuable of all. You cannot learn reality if you get caught
    up in the fantasy that “if s not fair.” You must come to know that the
    ultimate outcome of the game is the only thing that counts. You were lied
    to when you were told that “it does not matter whether you win or lose, if s
    how you play the game.” Winning in the world of the elite is everything.
    Indeed, it is the only thing. The power elite intend to win.
    My research has shown, at this point, that the future laid out for us
    may be just about impossible to change. I do not agree with the means by
    which the powerful few have chosen for us to reach the end. I do not agree
    that the end is where we should end at all. But unless we can wake the
    people from their sleep, nothing short of civil war will stop the planned
    outcome. I base that statement not on defeatism but on the apathy of the
    majority of the American people. Twenty-five years ago I would have
    believed otherwise — but twenty-five years ago I was also sound asleep.
    We have been taught lies. Reality is not at all what we perceive it to be.
    William Cooper • 3
    We cannot survive any longer by hanging onto the falsehoods of the past.
    Reality must be discerned at all costs if we are to be a part of the future.
    Truth must prevail in all instances, no matter who it hurts or helps, if we are
    to continue to live upon this earth. At this point, what we want may no
    longer matter. It is what we must do to ensure our survival that counts.
    The old way is in the certain process of destruction and a New World Order
    is beating down the door.
    To cling to the past is guaranteed suicide. To remain apathetic is
    assured enslavement. To learn the truth and then act upon it is the only
    means of survival at this moment. To shrug off the information contained
    in this book and to disregard its warning will result in the complete
    destruction of the Republic of the United States of America. You will never
    get a second warning or a second chance. Like it or not, this is it, stark
    reality. You can no longer turn your head, ignore it, pretend if s not true,
    say “it can’t happen to me,” run, or hide. The wolf is at the door.
    I fear for the little ones, the innocents, who are already paying for our
    mistakes. There exists a great army of occupationally orphaned children.
    They are attending government-controlled day-care centers. And latchkey
    kids who are running wild in the streets. And the lop-sided, emotionally
    wounded children of single welfare mothers, born only for the sake of
    more money in the monthly check. Open your eyes and look at them, for
    they are the future. In them I see the sure and certain destruction of this
    once-proud nation. In their vacant eyes I see the death of Freedom. They
    carry with them a great emptiness — and someone will surely pay a great
    price for their suffering.
    If we do not act in concert with each other and ensure that the future
    becomes what we need it to be, then we will surely deserve whatever fate
    awaits us.
    I believe with all my heart that God put me in places and in positions
    throughout my life so that I would be able to deliver this warning to His
    people. I pray that I have been worthy and that I have done my job.
    I believe first in God, the same God in which my ancestors believed. I
    believe in Jesus Christ and that he is my saviour. Second, I believe in the
    Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America, without
    interpretation, as it was written and meant to work. I have given my
    sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of
    America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I intend to fulfill that
    oath. Third, I believe in the family unit and, in particular, my family unit.
    I have sworn that I will give my life, if it is required, in defense of God, the
    Constitution, or my family. Fourth, I believe that any man without principles
    that he is ready and willing to die for at any given moment is already
    dead and is of no use or consequence whatsoever.

    Great, more scientist’s trying to blow shit up to make escape for the globalists possible. If they are successful, which I hope their not, otherwise the corporate globalist elites who’ve destroyed this planet can escape and start their Utopian leaving the masses to suffer here, then they truly will be able to force mankind into slavery without anyway for the slaves to reach them for revolt. Their advanced weapons can be aimed at earth from a safe distance and they can threaten to blast us if we don’t mine the resources for them. When are they going to invent something that actually helps humanity? Where are the Tesla’s of the modern age?

    A 1914 Architecture Initiated to Today (Satan’s Kingdom View; Globalist Architecture, The One World Government)
    Rev 12:3
    “And another sign was seen in heaven… a great fiery-colored dragon, with seven heads and ten horns and upon its heads seven diadems”

    This is the original serpent of Eden, Satan*, now matured with the Adamic rebellion thru human kingdoms, a global scale dragon, the architect of the wild beast of human governance in rebellion to God.
    “I saw a wild beast ascending out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, and upon its horns ten diadems, but upon its heads blasphemous names. 2 …the dragon gave to the beast its power and its throne and great authority.”

    Seeing the relationship between the dragon Satan, and the seven headed wild beast(1) of his creation through sinful man is apparent in the image of seven heads and ten horns being present in both the dragon and the beast, and the statement “And the dragon gave to the beast its power and its throne…”

    “And I saw another wild beast ascending out of the earth, and it had two horns like a lamb, but it began speaking as a dragon. 12 And it exercises all the authority of the first wild beast in its sight. And it makes the earth and those who dwell in it worship the first wild beast… 13 And it performs great signs**…”

    Seeing the relationship between the lamb horned wild beast(2), that speaks as a dragon (Satan), and the 7 headed wild beast(1) is shown in the statement “And it exercises all the authority of the first wild beast in its sight”. That it speaks as a dragon, shows that it has a common message originating with Satan:


    “And I saw three unclean inspired expressions that looked like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are expressions inspired by demons and perform signs**, and they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.”

    That the dragon, the beasts and the false-prophet of this global kingdom all speak the same message. We know the seventh head also finishes the complete 10 horns of the wild beast(1), by Britain and America, horns 9 and 10. The second wild beast, gives this needed clue, a dual world power. It collects “the kings of the entire inhabited earth”, showing a union of the global human kingdoms for Har-Magedon.

    “And it misleads those who dwell on the earth, because of the signs that were granted it to perform in the sight of the wild beast, while it tells those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the wild beast… 15 And there was granted it to give breath to the image of the wild beast, so that the image of the wild beast should both speak and cause to be killed all those who would not in any way worship the image of the wild beast.”

    The image of the beast is a global architecture of global government inspired by the 7th head of the wild beast (UK/US), further described as a two horned wild beast, providing a clue as to it being a dual power. In the world scene, this is the Anglo-American world power of Britain and America, which as a mouthpiece for globalism, the chief human architects of the beast that comes out of the abyss, as the United Nations, having gone into the abyss as the League of Nations. This shows that one particular power was infused by Satanic inspiration to create what is the UN today, an eighth king itself, a global coalition of earthly powers. Satan, both beasts, and the image of the beast, all work in unison as well, rebellion’s climax.

    “So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan”

    As unlikely and unplausible as this seems… It could happen. Some crazy mess is bound to happen. But saying that they would not project such ideas onto the masses, though they already have, is ridiculous.

    The only power we have is over our own actions. If we are fearful of these efforts, we will be doomed. But if we treat it like the closing act of a show we have grown tired of, we might find some joy and relief in its utter simplicity and devout Madness.

    Its up to us. Nothing else is really happening. Hell, according to quantum physics, the Tama-Reans(Egyptians), Buddhists, Hindus, Gnostic Christians, and Mayans… this is all an illusion anyway. Sooooo…. what’s the big deal?

    Wouldn’t it be fun to have a pretend 2nd sun for a few weeks before the whole thing goes up in the wake of its own self-annihilation? What a game!!!!
