April 20, (Day 110, Witness):  NASA's Orbiter Discovery landed successfully on Runway 33 at Kennedy Space Center after being delayed another orbit due to weather.  Landing was on Orbit 238, where 38 is for dying in the wilderness.  Main gear touchdown was at 9:08/35 AM EDT (1308/35 GMT), Mission Elapsed Time 15 Days 2 Hr. 47 min. 10 sec.  Nose gear touchdown was at 9:08/47 AM EDT, and wheel stop was at 9:09/33 AM EDT.

Conclusion

The return of STS-131 on Orbit 238 after a 15-day mission was the final testimony of dead works and dying in he wilderness, per the meaning of the number 38.  The Exodus generation wasted their lives for 38 years wandering in the wilderness and died the sin unto death by the 39th year.  To waste one's life on dead works while enduring life's many sufferings is a sad testimony.  All the hard work was for nothing.  And that's the testimony that ended the STS-131 mission.

The mission ended with the Redeemer Planet in conjunction with Midheaven in Aquarius, which symbolizes the good news of redemption from slavery to sin.  Aquarius symbolizes Florida, where the landing occurred.  Jesus Christ purchased mankind from slavery to sin with His blood on the Cross.  The Blood of Christ is symbolized by the Red Planet, which was called the ultimate strategic objective for NASA by President Obama during his visit to Kennedy Space Center during the mission.  That strategic objective was further symbolized by the star (pentagram) on the mission patch.  However, the Lord emphasized again during landing with the Redeemer Planet in Midheaven that the blood of Christ was efficacious to provide Salvation for all mankind.  To go to the Red Planet would be perversely insane.

Other aspects of the mission patch also came true during the mission.  The yellow color for a capacity for life test was fulfilled in the President's new space policy, which will severely challenge the strength of NASA.  The yellow vapor trails of the Orbiter on the patch also symbolized the eruption of the volcano in Iceland that shut down air traffic in Europe and stranded many travelers for five days.  Today, with the Orbiter's landing, the restrictions on air traffic were relaxed.  The arcs, symbolizing broken covenants, in the patch also came true during the mission as the President made clear that his new space policy canceled the Constellation program and the Lunar missions in NASA's plan.  And the Shuttle Program (another big contract) will be allowed to end this year with the loss of thousands of jobs.

The number 131 was for an evil king.  Satan inspires the evil king to do his bidding.  As the Orbiter landed the bottom of heaven, IC, was in Leo, which symbolizes a king's death or standing at the footstool of the conquering king.  During the mission the President of Poland and his wife, along with many other government leaders were killed in a plane crash.  The Star Chart for the Launch of STS-131 had the bottom of heaven, IC, in Gemini, for death of a spouse.  And it could be argued that NASA was standing at the throne of President Obama after his election victory gave him the power to decide NASA's fate.

April 5, (Day 95, Hero):  NASA successfully launched STS-131 from Kennedy Space Center, Florida in the dark before dawn at 6:21/25 AM EDT (1021/25 GMT).  Prior to Launch about 5:46 AM, the Air Force Eastern Test Range reported a failure  of a  command message encoder verifier, but the problem was corrected in time to support Launch. 

Orbiter Discovery (OV-103) is enroute to the International Space Station with the
Multi-Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM), Leonardo, which is carrying the last of the four crew quarters and supplies.  An Ammonia Tank Assembly (ATA) (for Space Station cooling) to replace the current ATA is also enroute to the Space Station.  The old Ammonia Tank will be replaced with the new tank during the mission.

Today was April 5, Day 95, where 5 is for a giant, such as Baal, and 95 is for a hero.

Star Chart

STS-131 Launch ChartAt the time of Launch, the Star Chart contained a Plow and a Yod.  A Plow symbolizes intensive suffering, like being plowed under.  The point of the Plow was at the conjunction of the Last Adam, the Moon, and Midheaven in Sagittarius.  This symbolized a notorious attack of a raiding band, which corresponded to the Taliban terrorist attack on the US consulate in Peshawar, Pakistan today.  Sagittarius corresponds to the location of Pakistan on the Zodiac Map.  A Yod symbolizes a crisis in timing, which demands decisive action at the right time.  The Yod pointed to the Red Planet in Cancer, which symbolizes suffering from a security breach.  The terrorist attack on the US consulate was an attempt to breach the security of the compound. 

There were also three distinct pairs of planets, which symbolized a flood, since animals entered Noah's Ark in pairs at the time of the first flood.  A flood symbolizes the breakdown of Marriage Culture due to female promiscuity.  The Almighty God Planet was in Aquarius, which symbolizes a flood as predicted in the meaning of the year, 2010.  There has been major flooding in Rhode Island.

Mission Patch

The STS-131 Mission patch features an Orbiter with three vapor trails piercing arcs and pointed toward a star (pentagram).  The three yellow vapor trails are shaped like a horn, for goring.  Yellow symbolizes a Capacity for Life test.  An arc symbolizes a  broken covenant.  Three arcs are shown.  The Orbiter trajectory is inclined 51 degrees, where 51 is for arrogance.  The trajectory points to the star (pentagram), which symbolizes a giant, such as Baal, as the symbol of the International Space Station.  Since the star is on the horizon, it could also symbolize Satan as the Morning Star.  As it turned out, the star also symbolized the Space Station as it passed overhead just prior to Launch of STS-131.

The mission number, STS-131, symbolizes the evil king.

Conclusion

 STS-131 was launched in the predawn darkness as symbolized by the Orbiter rising into the night sky on the Mission Patch.  The Orbiter on the patch pointed to a star.  Just prior to STS-131 Launch, the Space Station passing overhead appeared like a star.  The number, 131, stands for an Evil King.  Satan has claimed the Space Station as the throne of his Evil King.

The Launch Chart contained a Plow pointed at the conjunction of the Last Adam and Moon in Midheaven, which symbolized the terrorist attack on the US consulate today in Peshawar, Pakistan as well as another terrorist bombing at a political rally in Pakistan.  The Yod pointed to the Red Planet in Cancer, which symbolizes suffering from a security breach and also corresponds to the terrorist attacks in Pakistan.  Sagittarius corresponds to the location of Pakistan.
