Is the Earth Already Changing Orbit?

Updated on March 2, 2013

Japan Misses Venus

Today the Japanese failed to put their spaceship Akatsuki, in orbit around Venus. It was planned that the ship would take up an elliptical orbit, getting as close as 190 miles from the surface, then going out to 50,000 miles. It was hoped that it would be able to record data on volcanic activity on the surface, as well as weather information.

How did this happen? As we approach coming in line with the center of our Galaxy, is it causing the planet Venus to slightly alter its orbit around the Sun? Or is Earth changing hers?

These scientists and mathematicians have proved that they know their business. Earlier in the year they were successful in sending a probe, to a speeding asteroid, to collect dust. Then return it safely to Earth. So how could they miss Venus, a planet the size of Earth?

After years of planning and a cost of $300 million, I am sure that the math would of been checked and rechecked, again and again. So what happened? Did the starting point [Earth] or the finishing point [Venus] change their supposed positions? Is this something to do with us approaching alignment with the center of our Galaxy? Would we be told if it was?

Not a Complete Failure

The scientists will however, be able to try to put it in orbit around Venus again, in 6 years time.

What this spacecraft has already been successful in doing though is, putting Ikaros, a solar sail spacecraft into outer space. Akatsuki, at its launch, carried the first solar sail craft into deep space.

The Japanese will try to maneuver this craft in space. Whether they are successful or not, it will still make great advances in this field. It is thought that solar sails will one day be the major means of transport in the solar system.

Ikaros cost $16 million to develop and was launched on Akatsuki from the Japanese space center on 20th May.

      doesnt surprise me that earth might of shifted position slighty... would explain why the moon of late (since 2011) has looked odd and out of place?

      Something's going on, I commented the other day to somthgblue that Venus seemed to be moving gradually across the sky over the last few months. There also seems to be another star in the sky that shouldn't be there and it's even brighter than Venus.

      This idea of the earth changing co-ordinates. Check out John Lash Lambs site: metahistory.org According to gnostic thinking the earth is a living entity called Sophia/Gaia that is moving into position to head back to the galatic center from whence she accidently was projected in the this arm of the galaxy along with the experiment that we as humans were to be. The Nag Hamadi scriptures discovered in Egypt in 1945 explain this in detail. The scriptures have been translated into English available as Nag Hamadi gnostic scriptures through Amazon. John Lash's site explains about the sequential change in earth's alignment and movement to head for the galaxy center. It's facinating-please check it out

      billy quest-torchwood@bellsouth.net. You've got a great site also.

      Not sure about the orbital functions of the planets, but gravitational field anomalies are being noted, last I hears, primarily in the southern hemisphere, but those should have corresponding anomalies in the north also. These anomalous field fluctuations have been well documented in the geologic record, so the burden of proof is not on me. These things have happened before. I am aware of a recent "spike", only because these things are internalized for me. I "feel" these anomalies. Good hub, and very informative. More, more!

      I didn't even know the Japanese were doing this.
