Engineered Storm? HAARP Monitoring Project Records Strongest Readings Ever Directed In Path of Hurricane Sandy


An independent website that has a real-time sensor network from over 28 sensors placed in rural areas across the United States has recorded the strongest HAARP readings in the projects history.

The readings, in and around the New England area, are literally off the charts and lend credence to other claims that Hurricane Sandy is possibly being engineered to cause massive destruction.

Update! Photos of Meteor-like Objects Over Round Rock, Texas - 10/27/2012






I received an email from a witness who took photos of objects in the skies over Round Rock, Texas, on October 27, 2012.  Are they jets, or something else?

Here is the unedited report.  The photos were provided by the witness, which I have cropped in order for the objects to be viewed.



Location: Round Rock, Texas
Date of Sighting: 10/27/2012
Time of Sighting: 6:52 p.m.


Hi,
   I was wondering if you have any info on air traffic or space debris that could be seen from Round Rock last night around 7pm. We were in Round Rock west at the Deep Wood Elementary Harvest Hoedown last night and saw something strange in the north and west sky. My daughter called me from the playground and invited me to come watch the meteor shower with her. I looked up and saw what I though was a plane far off in the west sky. It had a bright trail and wasn't moving at an expected speed, honestly it reminded me of a comet. I knew it wasn't and was suspicious of there being a meteor shower due to the fact that I keep a close eye on weather reports and had not seen any mention of any such events. I looked around for shooting stars and saw nothing. My eyes went back to where the plane was and it and it's tail were gone. I thought nothing of it and met up with my daughter. I asked her where she saw the meteors and she said they were above the school but were gone. She said she had seen several and then showed me some pictures on her phone she had snapped. That's when I realizes that these were not typical shooting stars. I'm guessing it was jets from an air show or military practice but I can't find any reports that support my theory. I'd like to know what this was. Thanks for the help,
[Name withheld by SW/LITS]


Note:   So far, I have not found any reports related to this sighting, nor did I find any information concerning air shows in the area. 
If you have any information concerning this sighting, please contact me.  Thanks! -Sunny


UPDATE! Another witness sent in a photo.  She wrote that her daughter took the photo on Saturday, October 17, 2012.

Fishermen have daytime sighting of cylindrical UFO over Tradinghouse Creek Reservoir near Waco, Texas

Tradinghouse Creek Reservoir, located East of Waco, Texas.
Red circled area indicates location of witnesses at time of sighting.

*
I received an emailed report of a cylindrical object seen during daylight hours, over a lake east of Waco. 
Later, the sighting was corroborated by a witness in Huntsville.
Here is that report.


Location: Tradinghouse Creek Reservoir, McLennan County, Texas
Date of Sighting: 10/14/2012
Time of Sighting:  between 1:45/2:15 p.m.
Shape of Object: Cylinder


Report:
While fishing at lake TPL (Tradinghouse Creek Reservoir) in McLennan County last Sunday 10/14/2012, witnessed a cylindrical object in the sky moving slowly.
We seen the object approximately between 1:45/2:15 PM.
Object had no wings, did not look like a plane and was fairly large considering the distance.
It was defiantly larger than a 747. It was heading south.
If you would put your hand out between your thumb and index finger it would measure around 3 - 4 inches long and ¾ to 1 inch thick.
It was moving at a speed of maybe 200 miles an hour maybe around 5 to 8 thousand feet in the air.
I first seen the object to my right at the 3 - 4 o’clock on the dial and I asked my brother in law to check it out and we continued to observe the object until 6 o’clock on the dial until it when out of site.
We witnessed the object for about 2 or 3 minutes.

We both agreed that it was cylindrical, no wings, cream color and moving slow.

It also seemed like it had sections. It was not perfectly straight like a cigar.

We were right at this spot facing lake.
This is an old aerial Google map* and the lake level is higher and now comes right up to the duck weeds.

*Note: The images provided were too small, so I used Google Maps to show the area of sighting. -SW

     *

Later the same day, just miles away in Huntsville, a witness sees a cylindrical object with no wings.  That report was submitted to MUFON.
Here is that unedited report.:


MUFON Case # 43264
Location: Huntsville, Texas
Date of Sighting:   10/14/2012 

Time of Sighting:  06:31 UTC
Viewing Distance:     Unknown
Sighting Duration:     Undisclosed
Object Features:     Appendage(s)
Object Flight Path:     Straight-line path
Object Shape:     Cigar
Weather Factors:     Unknown
Summary:  bright metallic silver cigar shaped


Report:
I was standing at the at the back door looking up at the sky talking to my boyfirend, which was sitting in a chair cooking chicken on the BBQ pit. All of the sudden I see a bright glare out of my peripheral vision and as I looked I saw a bright metallic silver cigar shaped object. I then st arted yelling for him to look up. All I could verbalize was "it has no wings"! As I started to lose sight of the UFO I turned and ran through the house to the front porch and watched the object until I could no longer see it. He believes that the object was twice as large as a fighter jet but was flying at least Mach 2 at around 2/3 of the normal altitude of a fighter jet. He has always told me I was crazy. He was a true sceptic until that day. He said he does not know what it was but it was not a plane. We could not believe what we saw.!!

Explosion in NW Louisiana not a meteor, or ammo explosion




Video Link

*

There is a coverup going on in Louisiana and it appears to be on the scale of the Roswell conspiracy.

Monday, October 15 at 11:30 p.m., an explosion rattled the small town of Minden, in Webster Parish, Louisiana. Before the explosion, witnesses report seeing lights and flashes in the sky, including low flying fighter jets.   One witness saw a strange craft and reported it to MUFON.  That report is included below.

Local Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton said, "Definitely had something happen."  He added, " that all the explosion manufacturing facilities and natural gas facilities in Webster Parish are ruled out as a cause."

The local meteorologist goes on to refute the meteor theory, saying, "Checking with the National Weather Service, if it were a meteor, and yes we are in a meteor shower period, the Orionids, but I don't think there would be a piece of that, that would make it to the earth without vaporizing.  But if it did, radar did not pick up a streak, which it normally would."

He goes on to say, "But, we had an eye witness report who left her home in Dixie Inn, to drive to find whatever it was that hit and she reported ashes falling onto her car but they were heavy enough that they sounded like small hail. The weather service did confirm right after that explosion, their radar picked up what would be called a low cloud, or a debris field."  He also states that the radar picked the debris up, through four revolutions.

With the dawn of a new day, Tuesday morning, October 16th, the coverup had begun. The story now is that a bunker exploded at local military munitions plant (Camp Minden), despite the previous statements made by the Sheriff, ruling out the possibility of a munitions explosion.

An anonymous photographer captured aerial footage of the aftermath, which clearly shows 2 impact points, debris and an idle train that was also impacted and blown over. Despite what the claims are, the train was not moving at the time. The video is evidence of that as well.

V-shaped Black Craft Over Snohomish, WA

Artistic renderings submitted to MUFON by witness.

This report originally submitted to MUFON is presented here, as is, with no corrections.

*

MUFON Case # 42973
Location: Snohomish, Washington
Date of Sighting: 10/02/2012
Time of Sighting: 12:00
Viewing Distance: 101-500 Feet, 501 Feet - 1 Mile, Unknown
Sighting Duration: Undisclosed
Object Features: Wings
Object Flight Path: Straight-line path
Object Shape: Chevron
Summary: Large, low flying, V-shaped, black craft with 4 large white/yellow lights flying SE to NW.

Report:

The body of the craft gave an impression of the V-shape but somehow seemed almost semi-transparent, blackish in color and almost shadowy in nature. The four lights were very large, bright white to yellow in color and steady, no blinking or fluctuations. This large craft flying over head made absolutely no noise, it floated by with an eerie kind of silence. It traveled in a southeast to northwest direction. I got to see it fly overhead for a solid 10-15 seconds before the neighbors tree blocked it from my view. I tried to run to the front of the house as quickly as I could to catch back up with it, but could no longer find it in the sky anywhere. This all happened between the minutes of 12:04 - 12:05AM 10-02-12. The most up-close and craziest sighting Ive seen in my adult life! And to think, I witnessed all of this just because I wanted to go outside to get a breath of fresh air and look at the full moon before going to bed!!!! These are the best images I could find on the net that looks almost just like the UFO we saw last night. The one major difference being that the craft we saw had four lights, two on each side. Not to say there could have been a place for a light in the front and center, but maybe it was turned off?

Summary: Rectangular UFO Grayish/Black sighted between Hutto, Tx and Taylor, tx


Report:
UFO !!!! A rectangular UFO was sighted by me near Hutto, Texas at 11:30 am today by Terry Lee Cochran It was very large and perfectly rectangular, grayish / black in color hovering below the storm clouds like a huge banner. I was driving toward Taylor, Texas on Hi-Way 79 going east. It was the size of a football field in my opinion. Moving as fast as I was driving at 55 miles per hour going parallel to it.. I watched it for almost 5 minutes in disbelief. Then I took action and took the very next road to intersect with it and it just disappeared! This is the 2nd UFO that I have seen in my life time. The other was in 1973 and it was hovering over the Decker Lake Power Plant near Austin, Texas. What a sight seeing it going zig zag across the sky then stopping for abpout 5 minutes to recharge then off it went at a blink of an eye it was gone. My wife [Name withheld by SW/LITS] witness it with me too and went to get a camera and it was gone

In Search Of The "Dyson Sphere"- Scientists Receive Funding

A star-surrounding Dyson Sphere could be solid, swarm-like, or anywhere in between.
(source: Sentient Developments)


Astroboffins to search for mega-massive alien power plants

Dyson Spheres – not just for Star Trek anymore

A team of alien-hunting astroboffins has been awarded a grant to search the sky for immense engineering feats that would reveal the existence of astral civilizations far, far more advanced than us puny humans.
Lead by assistant professor Jason Wright of Penn State's Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics, the team will use NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to search the sky for the infrared fingerprints of possible Dyson Spheres, energy-capturing mega-structures named after all-around smart guy Freeman Dyson, who postulated their existence in a 1960 paper.
According to Dyson, any advanced civilization would inevitably use up all of the resources on their planet, and would be forced to look elsewhere for energy. The most obvious place, he surmised, would be the star around which their planet orbits.
To capture that energy, they would construct the aforementioned Spheres – mind-bogglingly immense structures that would surround the star and collect its energy. These structures could be actual spheres, but more likely would take the form of rings, swarms, or banded spherical collections of energy harvesters.
No matter what form they might take, they'd undoubtedly give off infrared radiation that could be detected by such sensitive sensors such as those aboard WISE – and that's where Wright and his team come in.
The Atlantic reports that Wright has been awarded funding from the John Templeton Foundation to conduct his search, in response to his proposal, "Constraining the Abundance of Kardashev Type II and III Civilizations From Large Area Infrared Surveys".
We'll get back to Kardashev's civilization types in a moment.

The Orionid Meteor Shower Begins Tonight

Best time to view the meteor shower will be between 3:00 a.m. and sunrise, or at least 2 hours before dawn.



The Orionid meteor shower begins tonight and will peak Saturday, Oct. 21, 2012.

Tonight the Earth will begin to pass through a stream of dusty debris from Halley's Comet, treating sky watchers to one of the most dazzling meteor showers of the year.

Though not the strongest, the Orionids are truly one of the most beautiful annual meteor showers.  But be prepared as the Orionid meteoroids are some of the fastest, clocking in at 148,000 mph as they hit the earth's atmosphere.

These meteors are called Orionids because they appear to come from a small spot in the sky, near the shoulder of Orion (the constellation), and these meteoroids fan out across the entire sky.  Weather permitting, it should be a fantastic show.

Photo of possible Manta Ray over the streets of New York

Photo provided by the witness.
Photos courtesy of MUFON.


A witness claims to have seen and taken a photo, of what appeared to be a sting ray type object, possibly a living creature, over a street in New York.

This report was originally submitted to MUFON and is presented here, as is, with no corrections.


MUFON Case # 43191
Location: New York, NY
Date of Sighting: 2012-10-10
Time of Sighting: 3:35
Shape: Triangle, Manta Ray (Square, Rectagular)
Viewing Distance: 21-100 Feet, 101-500 Feet
Summary: Not provided


Report:
Here is what happened, normally I am not home during on weekdays during working hours, however my childcare (nanny) was sick and I didn’t have a back-up. Anyway, we went to the boardwalk so I can run a few miles and my daughter loves being pushed in her running stroller… sorry Anyhoo, I was deciding which way I would run first, I enter the Staten Island Boardwalk on Seaview Avenue and Father Capodanno. I turned toward the east and all of a sudden from nothing to a flying object that looked like a STINGRAY it moved like a stingray, it was the same color as a stingray. To me, it appeared to have like a light green and pale pink energy around it and it also appeared DISTRESSED…. It was barely moving and I watched it until it vanished…. It didn’t fly away fast it just became invisible, or I want to say transparent with the clouds. As I mentioned it appeared distressed, and I am not the only one who thought that because the police helicopters were searching, several helicopters for a very long time… I thought I saw it again over the Verrazano bridge, but again in a second it was transparent again. I could see the energy around this thing and it was amazing… Also, as you will be able to see in the photo, there was NO plane pulling it!!!!

A cube-like structure with flaming plasma seen in Carlsbad, California in 2003

A witness in Carlsbad, California recalls seeing a strange, plasma ejecting object, in 2003.

This report was originally submitted to MUFON and is presented here, as is, with not editing.



MUFON Case # 43186
Location: Carlsbad, California
Date of Sighting: 2003-08-12
Time of Sighting: 03:07 a.m.   
Viewing Distance: 501 Feet - 1 Mile
Sighting Duration: 00:00:30
Object Flight Path: Path with directional change,Other
Object Shape: Sphere, Square, Rectangular, Other
Summary: looked up saw red glow out of low clouds came craft with plasma like curling flames

Report:
It was very early 3 am, I for no reason woke up and went out side into the driveway of my house. It was a still morning , there was what is known as coastal eddy at the time. A thick layer of fog or cloud cover with a ceiling of about 500 feet. there was another fog that could be seen off in the distance with a visibility of about a mile and a half. It was approximately 7 min. after 3am, digital alarm clock read 3:03 went I got up and went outside.

I was standing in my driveway when I noticed a red glow above and to the right, I then saw the craft emerge from the fog layer above. as it emerged I could clearly see a spheroid object, essentially a cube with the corners shaved off, I have sent drawing of it to the directors email.

Out from each side, top, bottom, right left front back, of course I couldnt the far side, but I could make out that there was a flame on that side too.

The nature of the flames(plasma jets) were unlike that of rockets, they were thicker as in more dense it whipped around slowly but was not exausting as our jets do, pushing out thrust, these jets as I say whipped around slowly like a cats tail except for the front jet that was being pushed by the head wind as it moved through the air.

The local news reported several sightings during that time, it was reported to be a natural phenomenon and not a ufo

Witness takes photos of strange lights over Fort Hood while at soccer game in Killeen

Click on any image to enlarge.









*
A witness emailed me a short report and photos of several anomalous lights in a sunset over Killeen, Texas.  She also reports that she and others witnessed a jet, which seemed to make no sound.

Here is the unedited email report.



Location: Killeen, Texas
Date of Sighting: 10/8/12
Time of Sighting: 7:12 P.M. Central


Large, flat, bright auras that moved about slowly.  Directly located over Fort Hood, TX.  There were up to 8 total lights/auras.  There were several very long vapor trails in the sky that were clearly from jets to provide great differentiation.  These auras were slightly brighter in the middle and moved slowly up and down.  The auras were bright and very discernible.  All but one disappeared over the trees into the sunset.  The other one went up slightly and then there was nothing.  I told my friend I was shocked that jets from San Antonio had not arrived yet when all of a sudden a jet flew within a mile of us from behind us and you could see the outline in the sunset, but there was NO SOUND from the jet......  Obviously no pictures the jet as we saw it and it was quickly behind the trees at a low elevation.
All pictures taken at my sons soccer game.
Duration about 5 minutes.

All pics around 7:13 P.M. cst

The lights were obviously unusual and am So mad I did not take video.  Since it was over Ft. Hood we thought it might be something unusual with the military.  When the one simply disappeared that gave everything new meaning.  The jet made NO SOUND and that was as surprising as the UFO.  It flew around us at less than a mile at very low altitude.  You can hear a mower from the area it flew over during soccer games, but no jet sound.

  *

Investigator's Note: Is it possible that the lights were merely short jet contrails?  But then we have to take into consideration the other contrails.  We also have to consider the jet that could not be heard by the witnesses, even though it was no further than a mile away.

A couple on vacation observed a large oval craft during the daytime but lost sight of it behind the Davis Mountains, Fort Davis, Texas.

This is their unedited report, which was originally submitted to MUFON.



MUFON Case # 42939
Location: Fort Davis, Texas
Date of Sighting: 09/30/2012

Viewing Distance: Over One Mile
Sighting Duration: Undisclosed
Object Features:   Dome
Object Flight Path: Stationary
Object Shape:     Blimp, Egg, Oval
Weather Factors: Unknown
Summary: large oval craft over desert.


Report:
My wife and I were driving between Alpine and Fort Davis, Texas after a short vacation. I glanced out my driver side window and saw an white colored object in a clear blue sky. I asked my wife if she could see the object and she concurred. I then pulled over on the rural highway and we watched it hover for at least ten minutes until we decided to head on with our trip. I took several photos with a digital camera but they didn't come out that good. There was no sound and no discernible movement. After driving off we watched it and could tell with the changing perspective that it could have been four to six miles away from our location and that it was enormous. between 100-300 feet in length. We lost sight after driving on through the Davis Mountains.

Note: No photos or video were provided by the witness.

A Missouri resident recalls lifelong abductions and UFO sightings



This report was originally submitted to MUFON and is presented here as is, with no editing.

No photos or videos were provided.

*

MUFON Case # 43044
Location: Maryville, Missouri
Date: 10/15/1989
Event: Possible ongoing abductions
Summary: Started when I was young, keeps happening, what do i do

Report:
First off I am not sure what I should do or where I should go. Basically I was born in 1985. We lived in several places it was around 1989 I first saw something that I remember and my family remembers although we dont remember all of it.

What I remember is the first sighting was in the country outside of maryville missouri. I remember laying in my room and seeing flashing lights fill up the room. I went to the living room of our earth home and we had alot of picture windows and I remember standing there looking outside and seeing a bunch of different lights that were flashing all colors that I can think of. We had a big garage building like a morton shed. Above it was where the lights were coming from and the lights were so bright it was hard to make out the object.

I remember my father coming out and standing next to me and I was kind of scared because I didnt know what it was. I remember my dad saying its ok and put his hand on my shoulder. We had a light outside that hit part of the craft and it wwas a disc with a dome on top and the lights coming out the sides and bottom. I dont remember anything after my dad put his hand on my shoulder.

I remember the next day I woke up very early which was odd for me and my mom thought something was wrong. When she woke up she said the tv wasnt working that it was on channel 00. And when she called the tv provider they said they didnt know what caused that but that if there was a charge of high frequincys. When I walked to the kitchen my mom still says to this day and my dad that i pointed to the stove and said that was floating above our shed last night and me and dad saw it. I was pointing at a wok for chinese food that was on the stove burner and after saying that my dad said he remembered something about that night that he forgot.

After we talked about it I remembered having a dream that same night but it felt like it wasnt a dream and my dad had the same "dream". It was that I woke up on a cold table shaped object in a dark room with just a few lights. My dad was on a table next to me and I remember him saying outloud dont hurt my son. And I remember seeing small humanoid things walking around in the shadows and walking to my dads table and thats the last thing I remember. Since then throughout the years I have seen several ufos at different points in my life.

When I was about 10-11 I was at my dads in a different city then my mom. I remember we went to a roadside park in the country of Iowa. It was night time. I dont remember much about it but that I remember waking up feeling really sick in the car. I found later that night i took a shower and i had a triangle shaped white marking on my leg that looked like it was a scar but it just showed up that day and stayed there all the way till high school and can still faintly make it out today. I remember several times of throughout the years of seeing several more.

My father was a otr truck driver and I went with him in the summers. We were in Arizona/New Mexico area late at night on a county highway and saw blue/green lights in a field. It followed along the semi and took of into the sky at the speed of something I never saw before.

At one point I talked to my dad about the sightings Ive had and my mom. My dad has seen a lot more of these then my mother. But he said he knew they were studying us. He told me he was told by them the "greys" that they do not mean us harm. And my father told me they will be watching over me.

My mom found out that her utereus was looked to be like it was cut perfectly in half. This was just pointed out to her within the past 6 years as her dr asked her if she ever had any kids. She just had me.

Since about 2008 I have had more and more contact. The most recent was just about a week ago. I was on my way home from work at about 3 am and saw something in the sky darting around off highway 18 in north iowa on the N side of the road.
Last year I was out riding around on a motorcycle and I saw something that looked like it was following me in the middle of nowhere. It went directly over me and I dont feel that I was abducted but it kind of hovered over me in the sky and darted off in the distance. I ended up pulling on the side of the road. It was about 2 am and I sat on my bike looking at it and after a few minutes it started darting around the sky. At the same time I felt it was "communicating with me". I was seeing things at a very fast pace. It was not words or anything I know of for sure but it looked alot like old symbols of runes and shapes put together. It was like I was watching a tv of just these symbols and I dont remember blacking out but I thought it lasted about 15 minutes. I remember it leaving and I left.

And about 20 miles was the next gas station and I was gonna stop there, when i got there i thought it was going to be before 3 am since this happened at about 2 and i thought it was 15 minutes plus 15-20 min for the ride. When i got my gas it was after 500 am. When this happened and I saw the light at first on the bike I was anxious and felt this uneasy feeling that I had no control. I remember from every time I see these things I start out feeling the same thing of uneasy. When I started to pay attention to the crafts and felt it was communicating I instantly felt at ease and relaxed and that I knew somehow everything was ok.

I would like to try to find out why they are seeming if they are keeping in contact with me, if they are the same beings or different coincidences. And if its studing just me or my parents too. My parents both remember things and my dad remembers alot more and told me of several times he was out in nevada and arizona in the semi and seeing things. I had a video of one of the encounters on my old phone that was about 30 seconds long bu it was so hard to see the lights.

Lens flare goes viral thanks to ABC



By De Void

ABC’s viral lens flare



Last Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America decided to do a Great Taboo story on the cheap. It aired a piece by east Texas affiliate KLTV about an alleged UFO captured by Google Earth cameras in tiny Jacksonville, Tex. It was a whimsical little jellybean that cost nothing to produce. The accompanying ABC blog post indicated another similar UFO had been located on Google Earth in New Mexico.

The dual-UFO story went viral, from The Daily Mail in London to The Pakistan Daily Times. Although critics tendered lens flare as a possible explanation, one “UFO expert” declared “Without question, this is a legitimate craft. It is not a reflection or anything like that. That’s nonsense. I’m actually quite surprised that this is not getting more media attention.”

Actually, it’s hard to imagine how the thing got this far. Within minutes of being shown the Google images, our Herald-Tribune photo chief Mike Lang noodled around the Google Street View imagery and found yet another lens flare “UFO” in Texas — only, it was on the ground, not in the air.

LITS Editor's Note:  Russell Tetrault is the "UFO expert", who is reported to have said:
“Without question, this is a legitimate craft. It is not a reflection or anything like that. That’s nonsense. I’m actually quite surprised that this is not getting more media attention. You know, with big brother around every corner, there is a silver lining and here it is. There have been multiple UFOs spotted using this very program and now here’s another and perhaps, the most compelling. This craft is something that I have never seen before…so what does that mean? Does this mean that we have a different sort of visitor or a new man –made craft? Whatever it is, it is 100% there.”

Oh, please.  It's claptrap like this that hurts real UFO research.  I said it before in another post and I will say it again.  It is a lens flare.  You can find examples all over Google Maps Street Views. 

Lens flare is caused by "non-image light" which does not pass (refract) directly along its intended path.  Instead, this light reflects internally on lens elements multiple times, before finally reaching the film, or digital sensor.

Flare-inducing light sources include the sun, artificial lighting and even a full moon, or other brightly lit surfaces.


Lens flares can take on different shapes, depending on the camera lens and aperture settings.  The best way to avoid lens flares, are to use filters, lens hoods, or simply don't take photos with the camera pointed towards a bright light source.

Press Release-

SPACEX, NASA TARGET OCT. 7 LAUNCH FOR FIRST CONTRACTED U.S. CARGO RESUPPLY MISSION TO SPACE STATION

HOUSTON -- NASA managers, Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX) officials and international partner representatives Thursday announced Sunday, Oct. 7, as the target launch date for the first contracted cargo resupply flight to the International Space Station under NASA's Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract.

International Space Station Program managers confirmed the status and readiness of the Falcon 9 rocket and its Dragon cargo spacecraft for the SpaceX CRS-1 mission, as well as the space station's readiness to receive Dragon.

Launch is scheduled for 8:34 p.m. EDT from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. A back up launch opportunity is available on Oct. 8.

Media accreditation to view the launch now is open. International media without U.S. citizenship must apply for credentials to cover the prelaunch and launch activities by Wednesday, Sept 26. For U.S. media, the deadline to apply is Wednesday, Oct. 3.

Questions about accreditation may be directed to the Public Affairs Office at NASA's Kennedy Space Center at 321-867-2468. All media accreditation requests must be submitted online at: https://media.ksc.nasa.gov

The launch of the Dragon spacecraft will be the first of 12 contracted flights by SpaceX to resupply the space station and marks the second trip by a Dragon to the station, following a successful demonstration mission in May. SpaceX services under the CRS contract will restore an American capability to deliver and return significant amounts of cargo, including science experiments, to the orbiting laboratory -- a feat not achievable since the retirement of the space shuttle.

The Dragon will be filled with about 1,000 pounds of supplies. This includes critical materials to support the 166 investigations planned for the station's Expedition 33 crew, including 63 new investigations. The Dragon will return about 734 pounds of scientific materials, including results from human research, biotechnology, materials and educational experiments, as well as about 504 pounds of space station hardware.

Materials being launched on Dragon will support experiments in plant cell biology, human biotechnology and various materials technology demonstrations, among others. One experiment, called Micro 6, will examine the effects of microgravity on the opportunistic yeast Candida albicans, which is present on all humans. Another experiment, called Resist Tubule, will evaluate how microgravity affects the growth of cell walls in a plant called Arabidopsis. About 50 percent of the energy expended by terrestrial-bound plants is dedicated to structural support to overcome gravity. Understanding how the genes that control this energy expenditure operate in microgravity could have implications for future genetically modified plants and food supply. Both Micro 6 and Resist Tubule will return with the Dragon at the end of its mission.

Expedition 33 Commander Sunita Williams of NASA and Aki Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency will use a robot arm to grapple the Dragon following its rendezvous with the station on Wednesday, Oct. 10. They will attach the Dragon to the Earth-facing port of the station's Harmony module for a few weeks while crew members unload cargo and load experiment samples for return to Earth.

Dragon is scheduled to return in late October for a parachute-assisted splashdown in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southern California.

While NASA works with U.S. industry partners to develop commercial spaceflight capabilities, the agency also is developing the Orion spacecraft and the Space Launch System (SLS), a crew capsule and heavy-lift rocket to provide an entirely new capability for human exploration. Designed to be flexible for launching spacecraft for crew and cargo missions, SLS and Orion will expand human presence beyond low Earth orbit and enable new missions of exploration across the solar system.
