glory fails to reach orbit, plummets into ocean

climate change satellite goes out in blaze of ‘glory’
glory fails to reach orbit, plummets into oceanNASA’s Glory spacecraft crashes into ocean after failing to reach orbit, because housing atop the Taurus XL rocket did not separate. The launch took place shortly after 5am EST today from Vandenberg AFB. The failure costs NASA $420 million. Universe Today article reports loss also of mission’s two primary goals, “…ongoing data collection to monitor the sun’s energy reaching Earth, and a study of how aerosols move through Earth’s atmosphere and may influence climate.” You have to wonder why study climate change and potentially introduce more unwanted data? Scientists have lied about global warming and the elite too much invested as recalled in this Bloomberg article. The infrastructure exists for carbon trade and anything but global warming will be inconvenient for business!
