NASA Launch, Orlando Wreck Passover Connection

Woodpile Blocks I-4 in Orlando
Syria Peace Talks Face Strategic Impasse


January 24 (Day 24, Strategy):  NASA launched another Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS-L) aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida last night, January 23, 2014.  The Launch, which was originally scheduled for 9:05 PM EST (0205 GMT), was delayed until 9:33 PM EST due to a Radio Frequency (RF) communications problem.  The satellite will be used to provide continuous communication around the globe with NASA spacecraft, namely the International Space Station.   The TDRS satellites are a type of passover configuration in which the Space Station in a lower orbit passes communications up to a TDRS satellite, which relays the communication to the ground.

The Atlas 5 was scheduled to launch at 9:05 PM EST, where 5 symbolizes a giant.  The failure to launch on time due to an RF problem was, thus due to Spiritual Warfare.  The launch occurred at 9:33 PM, where 33 symbolizes the purifying Judgment of the Holy Spirit.

Woodpile Blocks I-4 in Orlando

Five hours after the NASA launch a tractor-trailer loaded with lumber crashed into the concrete dividing barrier in the middle of Interstate 4 in Orlando and spilled its load into the lanes of oncoming traffic.  The wreck was caused when the driver, Carl Thompson, 60, of Winter Haven, Florida, began coughing and lost control of the vehicle.  He was traveling eastbound at Kennedy Boulevard (Mile Marker 89), and the load of lumber passed over the concrete dividing barrier and blocked all of the westbound lanes.  One car hit the lumber and rolled and another hit an ambulance that was responding to the wreck.  None of the injuries were life-threatening.  The coughing was characteristic of a Cosmic System counterattack from a demon.

The westbound lanes of I-4 were blocked during the morning rush and were not fully open until 9:30 AM EST.  The roadblock on I-4 symbolizes a strategic failure.  The NASA TDRS satellites, managed by Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., have a history of strategic failure.  The booster rocket of the first one launched on Challenger in 1983 failed to achieve geosynchronous orbit, and the onboard thrusters had to be used to boost the satellite to orbit, which limited the life of the satellite.  The next TDRS satellite blew up in the Challenger explosion.

Syria Peace Talks Face Strategic Impasse

A strategic impasse stopped the Syrian peace talks today in Geneva before they began.   The rebels (Syrian National Coalition) will not accept a transition government that includes President Bashar al-Assad, and the Syrian delegation will not accept one without Assad.  Therefore, tomorrow the two sides will not negotiate directly but through a mediator, UN special envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.


The NASA launch of TDRS-L at 9:33 PM on January 23, 2014 was followed five hours later at 2:30 AM EST on January 24 by a wreck that blocked the westbound lanes of Interstate 4 in Orlando at Kennedy Boulevard.  The roadblock of I-4 symbolized a strategic failure.  The TDRS satellite is a type of strategic data router.  The number, 24, symbolizes strategy.  Today Syrian peace talks did not begin as scheduled due to a strategic impasse in which the Syrians are demanding that President Assad remain in power while the rebels will not accept any agreement with Assad still in power.

The NASA TDRS satellite functions in a passover configuration.  The TDRS satellites, which are in a higher, geosynchronous orbit, receive communications from the Space Station in a lower orbit and relay the communications to the ground.  The truck wreck in Orlando involved the eastbound truck hitting the concrete barrier in the middle of the highway and having its load of wood passed over into the westbound lanes on the other side of the barrier.  The Syrian peace talks are not direct negotiations between the two sides but each side communicates with a mediator.  This arrangement corresponds to the function of the TDRS satellite and the meaning of the year 2014, for the Passover.
