Poor Weather Scrubs Artorius One Test Launch

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on December 27, 2007

Poor weather in the Artorius Launch Facility area near [redacted] forced Artorius flight controllers to scrub the launch ofArtorius One, the prototype rocket for the Artorius Castus missile shield.

As noted in the latest forecast for [redacted], conditions will remain poor for the next 24 hours. The latest report is what made the decision final to scrub.

Somehow news of the test had leaked and it is known that the Chinese were in position to try and watch the second stage separation. They were loitering in an area believed to them to be the track of the ballistic missile. Fortunately, the Navy was nearby to interdict them, forcing them to surface.


The Russians too, were in position to watch the separation of the second stage of the Artorius One. The stage has been a closely guarded secret by the Artorius R&D department. I didn’t even know about it until last night, but it has been production for six months!


Artorius Pilots make Aircraft 460 “dark”, after learning the launch was scrubbed. They were to fly our own scientists to watch the separation.

Unless forecasts indicate a considerable clearing in the next 36 hours, the launch will be postponed until next week. Stay tuned to Artorius for live footage of the eventual launch..

    That looks like a Soviet Long Range Air Army Tu-95D Bear. It’s been a long time, so I may be mistaken.

    You would be right.

    Now THAT is an old picture!

    We are going to have video footage of the launch…

    I appreciate you not posting my picture as it would surely have blown my cover. Deep cover, as you well know, takes YEARS to pull off successfully. Nearly 10, in fact. 😉

    I’d hate to be responsible for blowing your cover..

    I am leaving soon, and you will forgive me if I speak bluntly. The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all, or no one is secure. Now, this does not mean giving up any freedom, except the freedom to act irresponsibly. Your ancestors knew this when they made laws to govern themselves and hired policemen to enforce them. We, of the other planets, have long accepted this principle. We have an organization for the mutual protection of all planets and for the complete elimination of aggression. The test of any such higher authority is, of course, the police force that supports it. For our policemen, we created a race of robots. Their function is to patrol the planets in spaceships like this one and preserve the peace. In matters of aggression, we have given them absolute power over us. This power cannot be revoked. At the first sign of violence, they act automatically against the aggressor. The penalty for provoking their action is too terrible to risk. The result is, we live in peace, without arms or armies, secure in the knowledge that we are free from aggression and war. Free to pursue more… profitable enterprises. Now, we do not pretend to have achieved perfection, but we do have a system, and it works. I came here to give you these facts. It is no concern of ours how you run your own planet, but if you threaten to extend your violence, this Earth of yours will be reduced to a burned-out cinder. Your choice is simple: join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you……
