The action involved launching NASA/JPL's Mars Insight Probe on the maiden voyage of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy and launching a classified US Air Force payload from Vandenberg AFB in California in May 2018 disguised as Mars InSight. Meanwhile, Northrop Grumman was contracted for a Top Secret project called Zuma, which reportedly failed over the Indian Ocean in January 2018. This, in fact, launched a Tesla Roadster into Space, completing the shell game.


In the mid 1980's, the CIA stole the Soviet design for the Russian RD-170 line of Rocket Engines. As a result, the National Reconnaissance Office believed it had obtained a safer successor to the Space Shuttle for its heavy launch capacity; however, the United States was unable to duplicate the Soviet metallurgy. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the US Air Force decided to use the RD-170 in an upgraded design called the RD-180, and this was manufactured by the Russian version of NASA, Roskosmos. After the disastrous Boeing/McDonnell Douglas Merger of 1996, the Boeing/Lockheed duopoly essentially pump-and-dumped the Pentagon with a Joint Venture called the United Launch Alliance.

Due to Air Force program development mismanagement and Israeli sabotage, the US had deprecated the Titan V and Space Shuttle Program without developing an entirely-domestic supply chain for its heavy lift capacity. After the CIA-lead Maiden Regime Change effort in The Ukraine in 2014, relations between the United States and the Russian Federation broke down. The Dependence of the US Air Force on Roskosmos rocket engines played into the calculus of Russian President Vladimir Putin to authorize intervention in the Crimea, which was overwhelmingly welcomed by the native peoples there in the aftermath of the US-installed regime's policy of Ukranization (prohibiting the region's 90% ethnic Russians from speaking their language in schools). Although post-Crimea sanctions and countersanctions and feigned discord had substantial benefits for the military-industrial complex of both the US and the Russian Federation, the Russian Federation had placed an export ban on RD-180 rocket engines to the United States for military purposes. It also jacked up the price for Soyouz trips to the International Space Station. These actions negated the impact of most US Sanctions, and some believe the sanction's true purpose was to stabilize the Russian economy as a counterweight to China.

The US then proceeded to create a number of fake initiatives designed to obtain RD-180 rocket engines on a peaceful pretext. These included the "Space Hotel Aurora" and "Luxembourg Asteroid Mining Ventures." The idea was these eccentric and harebrained schemes would import RD-180 engines then go out of business.


Mars InSight is an interplanetary probe that is a trial run for proposal by exogeologist Dr. Suzanne Smerekar at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to study Venusquakes. Mars itself is a geologically dead planet with minimal to nonexistant seismic events. Venus, however, is very seismically active. Because the loss of the relatively inexpensive Mars InSight Probe should the Falcoln Heavy fail, the loss of scientific value would be minimal.

The true payload launched from Vandenberg AFB in May 2018 is unknown, but it had a very unusual launch to the southwest that made its launch visible from the Los Angeles Area. Most Vandenberg launches are northward over Reno and are often visible from the San Francisco Bay Area. During the run-up to the May 2019 launch, propagandist Bill Maher broadcast a routine about Mars related to InSight. In 2019, Mars InSight and NASA was nominated for an Emmy for their P/R on Mars InSight. All mission control operators at JPL were given red polo shirts.[citation needed]

Orbital Mechanics

In 1986, the Principle Investigator of NASA's 1976 viking mission gave a very precise explanation of a Hoehmann Transfer Orbit in explaining "how to get to Mars" for The Mechanical Universe - a series of Annenberg Media funded lectures from CalTech that were the replacement for the Feynman Lectures. This was and remains the most efficient transfer orbit. This corresponds to the time of the Launch of the Falcoln Heavy in January 2018 given the orbital launch window.

In 2014 after the Mars InSight Proposal had been greenlit, a non-peer reviewed paper by "Topputo and BelBruno" proposed a novel "Ballistic Capture" transfer orbit. This was quickly folded into Kerbel Space Program - a popular computer simulation of celestial mechanics. This method roughly corresponds to Mars InSight; however, a number of observers of JPL's feed remarked in May 2018 that JPL's graphics "appeared to be generated in Kerbel Space Program." The Atlas vehicle appeared too powerful for the relatively light probe.

CovertCalifornia postulated that the Trajectory Control Maneuvers (TCMs) were, in fact, boosters to push the slightly-early launch of InSight on the Falcon Heavy into the correct transfer orbit.[citation needed]
