NASA MESSENGER Ready For Another Mercury Flyby

October 2, 2008

The NASA spacecraft MESSENGER is ready to make another flyby past Mercury next Monday..Orlando (ChattahBox) – The NASA spacecraft MESSENGER is ready to make another flyby past Mercury next Monday.

The MESSENGER probe is set to get extremely close to Mercury, which is the closest planet to the Sun.

The last flyby was a success, covering 20% of the surface of Mercury.

It was carried out back on January 14th, and will be expanded on this time.

MESSENGER will be around 124 miles above the surface of Mercury going at 15,000 mph.

It will focus on the opposite side of Mercury, covering another 30% of the planet.

    Dear Sirs

    I consider that I should inform you about the coming catastrophe of the American space vehicle
    MESSENGER which is to occur on March 18, 2011. On that day or some days later
    MESSENGER instead of reaching the orbit of Mercury according to NASA plans will fly to the
    Sun and will burn down in the Sun corona. From my point of view the reason of the failure of
    this mission will be the fact that the Sun gravity acceleration is more than 11000 times as much
    as the known one. Due to this reason the Japanese space vehicle AKATSUKI couldn’t reach
    Venus orbit on December 7, 2010 supposedly because of the wedged return valve in one of the
    fuel tubes. More than 20 space vehicles from 36 sent to Mars have failed because Mars gravity
    acceleration is more than 3,5 times as little that it is considered by NASA. This depressing
    conclusion has been obtained from the calculations made with the help of the new gravitation
    theory worked out by us and which physicists don’t want to recognize. If my suggestion isn’t
    proved I will only have to express my excuse for the trouble I caused. However, if MESSENGER
    doesn’t reach Mercury orbit it will mean that we are to be witnesses of new failures of space
    missions and the losses of billions of dollars earned by the hard work of American tax payers.
