WARNING! Shuttle tragedy may be a NUCLEAR DISASTER!!??

by Josh Sunday, Feb. 02, 2003 at 5:05 PM

Extremely harzardous long-lived nuclear material, such as enriched weapons-grade Uranium and/or Plutonium MAY have been on the Space Shuttle Columbia, which appears to have been destroyed while re-entering the atmosphere around 8 AM CST over TEXAS.


In the past, nuclear materials have been a part of the United States' Space Program, both for power and research purposes!!

It is critical to know whether this mission contained such an experiment or power source, because the highly unstable material likely was aerosolized in the burn-up upon re-entry. This means that the solid material may have been disintegrated into individual molecules or groups of molecules, which will now float around the Earth's atmosphere, until such time as they are precipitated out by weather patterns. This will cause wide-spread cancers and a radioactive "dead zone", which would be uninhabitable for up to 1 MILLION YEARS.

We need to call local TV, news, and radio stations to press this issue, which, if history teaches us anything, the US Government will attempt to cover-up!!

NASA is currently only issuing a "WARNING" against seeking out or touching the fallout; but the material may be far more dangerous than merely that! Simply breathing a single molecule of Plutonium into one's lungs is guaranteed death.

We MUST email the news stations, call in to the radio shows, and press this issue URGENTLY!! Otherwise it is likely that it may be glossed over as so many other nuclear disasters in this country have been; only to come to light years afterwards!!

No NUKES IN SPACE!!! It's simply too dangerous!!

Sincerely, Josh!
