June 1, (Day 152, Wall):  NASA's Orbiter Endeavour landed at Kennedy Space Center on Runway 15 this morning.  Main Gear touchdown was at 2:34/51 AM EDT (0634/51 GMT).  Nose Gear touchdown was at 2:35/04 AM EDT, and Wheel Stop was at 2:35/36 AM EDT.  The numbers mean:  34 - division of the land; 51 - arrogance; 35 - rest from enemies; and 36 - Ai.  An hour later, the Space Shuttle Atlantis, STS-135) was secured on the Launch Pad, and 7 hours later a tropical disturbance (Invest 93L) from North Carolina struck it.

Endeavour landed after 248 orbits and a journey of 6,510,221 miles. The STS-134 mission was the 25th and final flight for Endeavour, which spent a total of 299 days in space, orbited Earth 4,671 times, and traveled 122,883,151 miles.

Conclusion

The return of STS-134, for the division of the land, began a chain of events that symbolized the Second Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The return of STS-134 symbolized the orbiting of the Earth of the Lord at the Second Advent when "every eye will see Him" (Rev 1:7).  Rollout of STS-135 (meaning rest from enemies) during the landing of STS-134 symbolized the Millennium, which will follow the Second Advent.  And the tropical disturbance shaped like the "stone cut out without hands" that struck STS-135 on the Launch Pad symbolized the destruction of the last world empire at the Second Advent.

May 16, (Day 136, Ai):  NASA successfully launched the Shuttle STS (Space Transportation System)-134 at 8:56/28 AM EDT (1256/28 GMT) from Kennedy Space Center under cloudy skies.  It was the 25th and final Launch of Orbiter Endeavour, which is enroute to the International Space Station with a crew of six.  A last minute repair of tile damage was required just prior to launch.  Members of the closeout crew wore red "Go Endeavour" loops of ribbon.  The mission is commanded by Mark Kelly, whose wife, US Representative Gabrielle Giffords, and twin brother Scott Kelly viewed the launch from the roof of the Launch Control Center.

Star Chart

STS-134 LaunchThe Chart for Launch of STS-134 contained a Plow, a Coffin, and a Locomotive.  A Plow symbolizes intense suffering, like being plowed under.  A Coffin is for burying the dead.  And a Locomotive symbolizes a long-reach, strategic issue.  There was a Stellium of four planets in Aries, which adds great power to the significance of the sign in the Chart.  Aries, which is associated with leadership and military deployment, corresponds to the location of New York in the US.  The Stellium included the Almighty God, for a commander, and the Red Planet, for a bloody leader.

The Sun was moving into Taurus on the cusp of Aries, where it meant a husband's glory in Aries and highest glory in Taurus.  The Moon was approaching Full in Libra, for Marriage laws and justice or a jury.  Libra corresponds to Libya, where today the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague sought arrest warrants for Col. Muammar Kaddafi.  And jury selection began today in the trial of Chicago businessman Tahawwur Rana, who is accused of being linked to a scout for the terrorists from Pakistan who carried out the 2008 Mumbai, India terrorist attack.  And today in New York, a judge ruled that the sexual assault charges against International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn would be sent to a Grand Jury.

The Ascendant Sign was Gemini, the Twins, corresponding to Marriage and a witness, as in court.  Members of the closeout crew wore red "Go Endeavour" loops of ribbon, where a loop symbolizes a criminal and red is for blood and suffering.  The STS-134 Commander, Mark Kelly is the twin of Astronaut Scott Kelly.  Gemini corresponds to France, the home of IMF Director Strauss-Kahn.  The Descendant Sign, which coincided with the point of the Plow, was the Last Adam in Sagittarius, for the victim of an attack.  Sagittarius corresponds to Arizona and Pakistan.  Arizona is the home state of US Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in January and who witnessed today's Launch.  Pakistan is currently in an uproar over the US shooting of Osama bin Laden.

Midheaven was in Aquarius, for glorious good news, corresponding to today's successful Shuttle Launch.  Aquarius corresponds to the location of Florida, where Kennedy Space Center is located.  The Bottom of Heaven, IC, was in Leo, for the death of a king.  Leo corresponds to Washington, DC in the US.

The Locomotive symbolized a strategic objective.  The Chart turns on the God of the Covenants n Virgo, for a caretaker.  The chambermaid who accused IMF Director Strauss-Kahn corresponds to a caretaker.  The IMF is under the power of the Prostitute of Babylon.

Conclusion

The Launch of STS-134 was related to the other events on the World Stage today, as seen by the Astrological Chart at the time of Launch.  The Chart had strong associations with the sexual assault case against the IMF head in New York, as denoted by a Stellium of four planets in Aries.  The Ascendant in Gemini corresponded to the astronaut twins, Mark and Scott Kelly.  Gemini also corresponded to France, the home of IMF head Strauss-Kahn.  The Descendant was the Last Adam at the point of the Plow in Sagittarius, for a victim of attack associated with Arizona and Pakistan.  Arizona is the home of US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and Pakistan is one of the world's leading terrorist states.

The number, STS-134, stands for the division of the land, which coincides with the enemies of the Abrahamic Covenant.  Yesterday, the enemies of Israel attacked its borders in defiance of the Abrahamic Covenant and thus incurred the curse of Abraham (Gen 12:3).  Today's Launch was on May 16, 2011, Day 136, where the numbers mean:  16 - sanctification; 11- a witness; 36 - Ai.  Launch time was 8:56/28 AM EDT, where the numbers mean:  56 - soldiers dropping like dung in the open field, and 28 - a cosmic stronghold.  IMF head Strauss-Kahn was staying in hotel room number 2806, where 28 is for a cosmic stronghold and 6 is for the weakness of man stripped of his power standing before the footstool of the  conquering king to be sentenced.  Strauss-Kahn flew to the US on Air France Flight 28 from Paris to Washington, DC on May 11.

Today's Launch was the 25th and final Launch of Endeavour (OV-105), where 25 is for Sovereignty, and 5 is for a giant.  Strauss-Kahn was born on April 25, 1949 with three of the four planets in Aries that existed today.

Rollout

Rollout

Links:  | News Release | Shuttle Status | STS-134 Mission |
March 11, (Day 70, Pastor):  Rollout of the STS-134 Orbiter Endeavour from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) to the Launch Pad began at 7:56 PM EST (0056 GMT) on March 10, 2011, Day 69.  It was secured on the Pad at 3:49 AM EST (0849 GMT) on March 11.  The mission will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) and spare parts to the Space Station. Rollout began on Day 69, for running the course of life.  Launch is scheduled for April 29, 2011.

STS-134 was originally scheduled to be the last Space Shuttle flight, but an additional STS-135 mission has since been scheduled.  A special Mission Patch was designed to commemorate what was to be the last Shuttle flight.  The patch, which was inspired by the international atomic symbol, is the symbol of an atom with orbiting electrons.  During Rollout the massive earthquake struck Japan and damaged the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors.  The earthquake struck at 0546/23 UTC (2:46/23 PM JST) on March 11.

Mission Patch

The STS-134 Mission patch was inspired by the international atomic symbol and represents the atom with orbiting electrons around the nucleus.  The burst near the center of the patch symbolizes the epicenter of the Japan earthquake and nuclear fission, and the blue corner with the yellow arc symbolizes the tsunami that followed the earthquake and damaged the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactors.  The image of the Orbiter on the patch corresponds to NATO airplanes that are enforcing the no-fly zone over Libya.

The mission number, STS-134, symbolizes the division of the land, which corresponds to nationalism. Nationalism was instituted after the fall of the Tower of Babel to preserve freedom.  Current issues of the division of the land include the Libyan Rebellion and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process in defiance of the Abrahamic Covenant.

Conclusion

Rollout of STS-134 Space Shuttle Endeavour began March 10, 2011, Day 69 and concluded the next morning on March 11, 2011, Day 70.  The Shuttle rolled out to the Pad on the Crawler-Transporter track on Day 69, for running the course (or track) of life.  STS-134 was originally scheduled to be NASA's last Shuttle mission; however, another mission has been added.  The last two Shuttle missions are accompanied by massive layoffs in NASA as the Shuttle Program ends this year.

The STS-134 Mission patch contained the image of an atom with a burst that symbolized the epicenter of the Japan earthquake and nuclear fission.  The massive Japan earthquake occurred on the morning of March 11 during Rollout.  The Mission patch also contained the symbol of the tsunami that damaged the Japan Fukushima nuclear reactors.
