Discovery's Last Landing

Discovery's Last Landing

Links: | NASA spaceflight.Com | video | Spaceflightnow.com | Shuttle Status | STS-133 Mission |
March 9, (Day 68, Serving in Edom):  NASA's Orbiter Discovery made its last landing today at Kennedy Space Center before being retired.  Discovery finished its course today landing in the face of a stiff 18-knot headwind, gusting to 28 knots, on Runway 15 under partly cloudy skies.  To lend fanfare to the occasion, three of Colonel Kaddafi's private jets took off in different directions this morning from Tripoli on diplomatic missions.  The number, 3, corresponds to Discovery, which is Orbiter Vehicle 103.  Launch of Discovery was repeatedly delayed until the recent Libyan Revolution had begun.

Discovery landed after a total of 39 flights, 5,830 orbits, 365 days in orbit, and 148 million miles traveled.  The number, 39, stands for the Sin Leading to Death; and 365, corresponding to the number of days in a year and the length of Enoch's life, means going down, never to return. The planetary configuration overhead contained a Skull, a morbid symbol of death.  And in keeping with the sign of burning fire on the Mission Patch, Libyan planes bombed oil tankers today in Sidra Port, sending up huge plumes of black smoke.

Landing was on Orbit 202.  Main gear touchdown was at 11:57/17 AM EST (1657/17 GMT), Mission Elapsed Time 12 Days 19 Hr. 3 min. 53 sec.  Nose gear touchdown was at 11:57/28 AM EST, and wheel stop was at 11:58/14 AM EST.  The numbers mean:  2 - Divine Division; 57 - Zebulun (Florida); 17 - lawlessness.  It was March 9, Day 68, where the numbers mean:  9 - Plagues of Egypt; and 68 -serving in Edom.  Tornadoes were reported today in Escambia County, which is Florida County #9.

Star Chart

STS-133 Landing Chart, KSC, 3-9-11, 1157/17 ESTThe Chart at the time of landing contains a Skull, which is a morbid sign of death at the hands of Satan, who has the power of death.  This corresponds to the Sin Leading to Death as symbolized by the number, 39.  It was Discovery's 39th and final mission.  The Sun and Red Planet were in conjunction with Midheaven in Aquarius.  This symbolizes notorious news associated with the Antichrist and false teachers (or martyrs), since the Red Planet in Aquarius can symbolize false teachers or martyrs.  The Libya freedom fighters are dying as martyrs because of their fight for freedom and not because of their allegiance to false teaching.  Kaddafi's belligerence corresponds to an Antichrist.  The Redeemer in Aquarius symbolizes Heavenly rest, which in this case, corresponds to Discovery's retirement.  Aquarius, which contained three planets and Midheaven, corresponds to the location of Florida, where the Orbiter landed.  It is also a reminder of the water leaks in the early days of mission processing.

There were three planets in Pisces, which corresponds to Alabama, the home of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.  There were tornadoes in Alabama this morning.  The Savior Planet was in conjunction with the Mediator Planet in Pisces.  The Savior Planet in Pisces symbolizes the Savior of the Church (and thus, the Church), and the Mediator in Pisces symbolizes a priest, or pastor.  The conjunction, thus, symbolizes a pastor of the Church.  This corresponds to the first launch of Discovery on August 30, 1984, where 30 is for a priest and 84 is for the weakness of the Church.  The Almighty God Planet, which was also in Pisces, symbolizes the Monster Whale, corresponding to Baal and a giant.  The Orbiter is like a giant plane.

The Moon was in Aries, for Jezebel.  The Moon in Scorpius for Launch also corresponded to Jezebel (or the Prostitute of Babylon).

The Ascendant Sign was Gemini, the Twins, corresponding to the meaning of the year, 2011, where 11 is for a witness.

The Morning Star was in Capricornus, for a Gentile leader and corresponding to Texas and Johnson Space Center.  The Last Adam was setting in Sagittarius, for a Satanic attack.  Satan is allowed to administer the Sin Leading to Death, with God's permission.  Discovery as OV-103 has also been associated with Spiritual Warfare and Satanic attacks, such as the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 and Libyan terrorism.  The Arab Revolution has heralded defeat for the rise of Arab terrorism and Satan's attempt to install the Antichrist to rule the world.

The God of the Covenants was in Virgo, corresponding to Ohio, the home of NASA's Lewis Research Center, which is now Glenn Research Center.  The God of the Covenants in Virgo symbolizes a caretaker.

The Bottom of Heaven, IC, was in Leo, for the death of a king and corresponding to the location of NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC.  Thus, most of the major NASA centers were symbolized on the Chart by signs containing planets.

Conclusion

Discovery's Landing at KSC after completing its 39th mission with a Skull in the heavens overhead and a Lake of Fire on the Mission Patch symbolized running the course of life, dying the Sin Leading to Death, and going to the Lake of Fire.  Such is the destiny of those who die without Salvation, which comes only through Faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.

Launch

Launch

Links: | NASA spaceflight.Com | video | Spaceflightnow.com | Shuttle Status | STS-133 Mission |
February 24, (Day 55, Grace Blessing):  NASA successfully launched the Shuttle STS (Space Transportation System)-133 at 4:53/25 PM EST (2153/25 GMT) from Kennedy Space Center.  The Launch Countdown was temporarily held due to a Range Safety problem on the Air Force Eastern Test Range at Cape Canaveral.  The Launch occurred with only two seconds remaining in the Launch Window.

The Launch was the 39th and final launch of Orbiter Discovery, where 39 is for the sin leading to death.  Discovery was first launched on August 30, 1984 after previous launch attempts, including a Main Engine Abort, failed.  It was the first Shuttle Main Engine Abort on the Launch Pad, but not the last.  Discovery's last Launch today was on February 24, 2011, Day 55, where the numbers mean:  24 - Satan's strategic attack on Israel; 11 - a witness; and 55 grace blessing in suffering. Launch was at 4:53/25 PM EST, where 53 is for a large fish or ship and corresponds to the External Tank, and 25 is for sovereignty.

The final launch of Discovery came after a series of setbacks that began last year and coincided with major problems in the world.  After a Launch failure last year, Discovery had to be rolled back to finish repairs on the External Tank.  Rollback of Discovery (OV-103) began on December 21, 2010, which was the anniversary of the Libyan terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988.  Today Libya is in the midst of a revolution in one of the Earth shaking events of world history as the King of the South is falling and choosing freedom.  Discovery was rolled to the Launch Pad, rolled back to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), and then rolled out again for today's Launch.  This coincided to going around a race track.  Libya's leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi rose to power in a coup in 1969, where 69 symbolizes running the course of life (as on a race tack).  Gaddafi now appears near the end of his road.

The STS-133 Mission Patch, which features an inferno, came true during STS-133 Mission processing on several occasions.  First was the burning oil that turned the Gulf of Mexico into a lake of fire after the British Petroleum oil spill.  On December 17, 2010, the fall of the Middle East dictatorship in Tunisia began with the self-immolation of a street vendor, who was so demoralized by persecution from the government that he poured gasoline on himself and set himself afire.  The people identified with his plight and rose up and took over the government.  The alleged shooter of Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords was called a nihilist.  He had watched videos of self-immolation and identified with hopelessness.  Such people under the power of Satan lose all hope and choose to join Satan in the Lake of Fire.  Then, on January 21, 2011, a tanker wreck burned up the overpass at Florida State Roads 3 and 528, which blocked one of the main traffic arteries into Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Kennedy Space Center.  The number, 3, corresponds to Discovery, which is Orbiter Vehicle 103.

After its beginning with a Main Engine Abort and conclusion with all the fires of Hell, Discovery's final Launch was its 39th, for the sin leading to death.  That corresponds to a person who, after wasting his life on dead works and human good, dies the sin leading to death and goes to Hell.  Life does not have to be a waste.  It can be redeemed.  Eternal Life is available through faith in Jesus Christ.

Rollback

Rollback

Links: | NASA spaceflight.Com | Spaceflightnow.com | Shuttle Status | STS-133 Mission |
December 22, (Day 356, Dropping):  After a string of humiliating setbacks and failed launch attempts, Discovery was rolled back to the VAB overnight for repairs to the External Tank.  After cracks appeared in the innertank region, it was eventually decided to rollback to accomplish the repairs.  Rollback, which was scheduled for 12:30 AM yesterday, did not begin until 10:48 PM EST last night, December 21, 2010.  Launch is planned for February 3, 2011.

The original plan was to rollback during a Lunar Eclipse, which backfired due to problems with the Crawler Transporter Jacking and Leveling System.  Discovery finally made it back to the VAB on December 22, Day 356, where the numbers mean:  22 - cursing; 356 - soldiers dropping like dung in the open field.  President Obama signed the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to allow homosexuals to openly serve in the military today.  And the Senate voted to ratify the START Treaty with Russia.  California has been battered by rain for the past five days due to large weather elephants coming in from the Pacific.  The Pacific means peace pact, and the elephants symbolize Baal, who rules Russia.  The flooding in California symbolizes the breakdown of Marriage Culture due to female promiscuity (Prostitute of Babylon).  Homosexuality is the worst form of promiscuity associated with the Prostitute of Babylon.

So, the NASA SNAFU and ET problems in the innertank region correspond to the breakdown of the Right Man - Right Woman relationship.  And the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell on December 22, for cursing, and Day 356 for soldiers dropping like dung in the open field, corresponds to more cursing.  And the California weather corresponds to promiscuity associated with homosexuality in the military and ratification of the START Treaty with Russia.

Rollover

Discovery Rollover, 9-9-10

Rollover

Links: | NASA spaceflight.Com | Spaceflightnow.com | Shuttle Status | STS-133 Mission |
September 9, (Day 252, Wall):  Rollover of the STS-133 Orbiter Discovery from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF) to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) began this morning at 6:55 AM EDT.  It was parked for a while outside so employees could take pictures of Discovery's last mission.  It will be Discovery's 39th Launch, where 39 stands for the sin leading to death.  Discovery has been in the OPF since April 20 after completing the STS-131 Landing at 9:08 AM EDT.

In the photo of rollover of Discovery, the clouds in the background resembled water going down the drain of a sink.  This corresponded to the picture of the Deepwater Horizon sinking into the ocean.

Sun Halo, 9-9-10, 0837 EDT, Titusville, FLDuring rollover, a Sun halo appeared over Titusville, Florida about 12 miles away.  A Sun halo symbolizes the New Covenant to the Church (Luke 22:20) as explained regarding Sun halos that occurred April 9 and 20, 2009.  The thumb in the picture is to block the glare of the Sun.  The Sun halo of April 9, 2009 was on the Full Moon.  Today's Sun halo was a day after the New Moon.  The Moon was in Virgo, the Virgin, today to symbolize the Church.  At 2 PM EDT the Moon was in conjunction with the God of the Covenants planet in Midheaven, which symbolizes the glory of the New Covenant to the Church when the Church is presented to Christ in Resurrection bodies (2 Cor 11:2; Eph 5:27; Col 1:22; 1 Pet 1:8).  Furthermore, a halo around the rising Sun symbolizes the Resurrection (Rapture) of the Church.

Conclusion

The Orbiter Discovery rolled over from the OPF to the VAB for the last time this morning in preparation for its final mission.  It will be the 39th flight of Discovery, where 39 stands for the sin leading to death.  The planetary configuration overhead was a skull, a morbid symbol of death.  The sign in the sky as drawn by the weather angels was a sink, which corresponded to the water main break yesterday and to the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon.  Discovery last landed on the day the Deepwater Horizon sank.  Today was September 9 (i. e. 9-9), where 9 stands for the Plagues of Egypt.

In stark contrast to the rollover of Discovery was a Sun halo around the rising Sun in nearby Titusville.  The Sun halo symbolized the New Covenant to the Church (Luk 22:20) and the Rapture.  The Lord Jesus Christ made a Covenant with the Church, sealed in His blood.  After paying for the sins of the world on the Cross, He provided Eternal Life for all who will believe in Him.  The body of believers, the Church, will receive Resurrection bodies at the Rapture and will live forever with the Lord.  There is Salvation in none other.  There is no other name under heaven whereby a person can be saved (Acts 4:12).

Water Main Break Delays Rollover

NASA KSC Water Main Break

Water Main Break Delays Rollover

September 8, (Day 251, Arrogance):  Rollover of the STS-133 Orbiter Discovery from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF) to the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) was delayed due to a water main break that shut down the Space Center.  A 24-inch water pipe broke at approximately 11 PM EDT last night near the Turn Basin along the Saturn Causeway between the VAB and Turn Basin (top photo).  Rollover had been scheduled to begin at 6:30 AM, precisely at the time of the New Moon.
Rainbow KSC, 9-7-10, ~1145 GMT
Yesterday morning a rainbow appeared in the west about 7:45 AM EDT, following a early morning rain shower.  One picture captured the rainbow over the OPF.  A rainbow stands for the end of judgment.  The rainbow corresponded to the end of processing of Orbiter Discovery in the OPF for the STS-133 Mission.

The STS-133 Mission will deliver and install the Permanent Multipurpose Module, the Express Logistics Carrier 4, Robonaut 2 (R2), and provide critical spare parts to the Space Station.  Rollover has been rescheduled for 6:30 AM September 9, 2010, where 9 symbolizes the Plagues of Egypt.  Launch is still scheduled for November 1, 2010.

Mission Patch

The STS-133 Mission patch features an orbiter rising from a lake of fire through a crescent into the stars.  This is also a symbolic representation of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico with the Lake of Fire of oil burning in the Gulf with oil and bubbles of dispersant rising from the sea floor.  The Blowout Preventer that failed was recovered September 5 and was to be taken to the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, where the External Tank is built.  In the photo of the water main break, the External Tank barge, Pegasus, is in the background.  Discovery completed its last mission, STS-131, at 9:08 EDT on April 20, 2010.  The Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded the night of April 20.

The mission number, STS-133, symbolizes the purifying Judgment of the Holy Spirit.

Conclusion

The water main break symbolizes the Prostitute of Babylon (Prov 5:16).  It shut off water to the nearby Press Site as well as major portions of KSC.  The water main break occurred about 11 PM last night after a rainbow had appeared earlier in the morning.  The rainbow symbolized the end of OPF processing, while the water main break was divine intervention to prevent rollover on the New Moon on Day 251, for arrogance.  Scheduling rollover precisely on the New Moon indicated total disregard for the heavens.  The New Moon was in Leo, which corresponded to the shutdown of the government facility of Kennedy Space Center today due to the water main break.  The planetary configuration overhead was a Skull, a morbid symbol of death and Satan who has the power of death.

The STS-133 Mission patch symbolized the lake of fire associated with the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  The Blowout Preventer from the oil leak is being taken to the NASA Michoud facility in New Orleans, where the External Tank is assembled.  In the photo of the water main break, the External Tank barge was in the Turn Basin in the background.  Discovery returned from its last mission the morning of April 20, 2010.  The Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded that night.
