Now, the concept in 2010 was the aliens that controllled the obelisks decided Man wasn’t doing such a good job with the intelligence he had given and decided to start afresh. They didn’t go too far away, jsut a few planets over in the same solar system. The added mass to Jupiter which caused it to explode into a small star that not only eliminated nighttime on Earth, it provided the heat and ingredients to create life on Europa.
All These Planets Are Yours Except Europa, Attempt No Landing There…
…Use Them Together, Use Them In peace
Man immediately disobeyed the prime directive.
So, using Arthur Clarke as their motivation, some immediately began wondering what would happen if you just simply dropped a large nuclear bomb on Jupiter. Well, we did that in 1994. A little cloud appeared briefly on Jupiter. That folks, gave birth to the Lucifer Project Conspiracy. At the end of the Galileo Jupiter probe’s mission, NASA decided to simply crash Galileo into Jupiter. Now, some think it was to save Europa, some think it was an accident. And, some think it was to ignite Jupiter thereby creating a new sun, killing off most of humanity, and creating a new garden of Eden for those who survived. The people who espouse the Lucifer Project believe the non-reporting about the little dark spot on Jupiter is evidence supporting NASA’s secret mission. And, that apparently all publicly and privately funded astronomers were in on it too. That would make them a part of the Illuminati I suppose.
Well, since there are no more nuclear bombs destined for Jupiter any time soon, The Lucifer Project had to adjust their plan to accomodate the “end is near” philosophy that makes any conspiracy theory feel important. The adjusted plan uses the Cassini probe igniting Saturn. They have lots of science to support their theory.
Only one problem, Saturn doesn’t have the mass to support itself even if “lit”. Neither does Jupiter. That’s why Arthur Clarke was so brilliant, he adds MASS to create the ignition, not fire.
So, if Cassini does finish its life by crashing into Saturn. Most likely, we’ll get a dark spot on Saturn for a few days and every astronomer will know why it’s there. More likely, we won’t get anything.
But, we’ll have to wait a while. Cassini’s mission has been extended a couple more years already.
