Made Russia Almost
By Ted Twietmeyer
|It was Loyd Pye who stated one of the most important facts
about human beings: We are the only animals on Earth that are not designed
to live in the wild without clothing and shelter. We can add to that humans
are proven to be designed to live on Earth, not in space.
Russia was given power over NASA the very day the last shuttle was grounded without a viable replacement vehicle. NASA hopped in bed with Russia, confident in their foolish false assumption that the Soviet era dictatorship mentality was finally history. NASA is now completely dependent on Russia (as of this writing) to bring astronauts to and from the space station, using rocket and capsule technology.
To date, no one in the media has spoken of this problem until now.
There is nothing that can stop Russia from pulling the plug on ISS support, leaving American astronauts (and astronauts from other countries) stranded at the ISS space station. Further, the capsule Russia provides which is currently docked at the space station cannot possibly bring home all the astronauts at the same time. At least two or more flights would be needed to return everyone.
Is there a prior case of what happens to a astronaut stranded in space? When the Soviet Union collapsed, lone astronaut Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev was stranded on the Soviet Mir space station for 803 days. He lost so much bone and muscle mass he could barely stand up when he returned to Earth in 1992. 
Are there other implications? It is known how extended time in zero gravity affects the human body. Bone mass reduces each day in space. Faces swell up as fluid collects in the head in the absence of gravity. On average, the space station crew loses interior bone at a rate of 2.2 to 2.7 percent for each month in space and outer bone at a rate of 1.6 to 1.7 percent per month. 
Even though astronauts on the space station engage in vigorous daily exercise and run two miles/day, this does not stop the loss bone and muscle mass.
Bone mass loss is not the only issue resulting from being stranded in space. If a astronaut develops a life-threatening condition such as a heart condition, appendicitis or other illness little can be done to help them while in orbit. If the single docked Russian capsule has already returned to Earth and is not able to return, a sick astronaut can die on the space station. Upon death the body must be jettisoned into space to prevent a biological threat to astronauts from decay.
While robotic space-craft launched from NASA Wallops Island, VA are performing re-supply of food and other essentials to the space station, these small vehicles cannot bring a astronaut home.
Perhaps the US government will unveil the Lockheed-Martin TR-3 interplanetary spacecraft or something like it. It looks like a giant black triangle. It uses a form of anti-gravity propulsion instead of rockets. With a docking adapter installed, this vehicle or other vehicles like it can bring astronauts home.
But the TR-3 and vehicles like create another problem. Anti-gravity drive fields cause serious disruption of electronic systems within hundreds of feet of the vehicle. It is caused by distortion and warping of nearby space-time. Such a disruption can crash navigation, environmental, power distribution and station-keeping computers on the space station. Countless experiences by UFOs near observers have proven this fact.
It appears there is no easy way to bring astronauts home without the use of a capsule or a space shuttle.
