Earth Path Defense 

Protection for Earth & Humanity as Human Horizons Rise

 
Acknowledgements and Those that Gave Input to this Framework of the Earth-Path Defense Fund

 Frances Brake Heisler, McDonnell-Douglas Board Member in Charge of Strategic Planning and Innovation, working with her nephew Brake "Brock" d'Avignon to create the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) with General Graham's High Frontier Foundation and candidate Ronald Reagan, to intercept ICBMs ultimately rendering them useless in bluffing the Soviets as to progress; and developing technologies for later intercepting high-speed asteroids.
        She advised Brock how to create a free-market asteroid defense consortium when he asked, much as she had decided to go to the Moon in 1953 using sponsors and participation of Howard Hughes, Walt Disney, Werner von Braun, and General Motor's Chief Engineer Kettering.  She reluctantly ceded her capitalist project to President Kennedy's space race to the Moon organizing Mercury and Gemini and Atlas rockets' teams of construction.
      She always believed in moral defense before offense, reflected in her concept designs for other fighter interceptors of the Tuskegee Airmen counter-attacking Nazi jets and rocketplanes that she flushed out of being prototypes into battle, by displaying her XP-67 first laminar jet airframe in media 10JAN1944 on roll-out. From WWII through the Cold War, she organized McDonnell from the time she was his first employee in 1940, and later the merger with Douglas.         She built Skylab space stations with outward missions for asteroid defense in mind, tried to keep them fueled in orbit longer. She built rapidly deployable Single Stage to Orbit spacecraft for secondary missions for defense of Earth. Her influence into Boeing merger years was notable far beyond her passing in 1984. She advocated rebuilding a space initiative around capitalist rocketry instead of the limitations of taxpayer support, the inept and 48x cost over-runs to support NASA goals, and avidly supported the beginnings of the Earth Path Defnse Fund (EPDF) and the Space Property-title & Asteroid Resources Consortium (StarCo).

Ron Wroblewski, PhD Statistical Mechanics Physics, is a co-founder of the EPDF and StarCo from 1984-. His computer modeling work for Arete included wind and waves, and training a team that made the special effects for the movies Titanic and  Waterworld. He worked on numerous classified projects for 15 years for Arete including keeping our submarines silent, and as sometimes its only profit center. Arete was sub-divided into 3 companies, all of which he was an originator of computer coding for. He holds Top Secret and Special Access to Programs (SAP) clearances for numerous projects for SAIC and later the US Navy Space Warfare Center. His advise, wisdom, and spotting non-governmental technologies has been valuable to this framework.

People who have received this information and acted upon some of it:
President George Bush, who received 1 of 2 in 10 recommendations by the Presidential Commission on the Future of Aerospace, & President of the Aerospace Industries Association Jon Douglass, care of Mojave HS student Daren Jobe in 2001, that became the president’s initiative Moon, Mars, & Beyond favoring the beyond option goals, minus comprehension of asteroid collateral value included in the final report.

Dick Cheney, 2000 Candidate, and later Vice President of the United States, asking brock d’Avignon personally to send him all information on asteroid danger and the British view. This was done throughout his administration, and occasionally care of Dr. Lynne Cheney on Asteroid 1998OX4 danger on Christmas Eve 2004, and a prior 2003 spiral orbit asteroid near miss.

Condoleeza Rice, National Security Advisor to the President, Secretary of State, acting on ADDD students’ info about Libyan Lutz Kayser Rocket ICBM and asteroid intercept and re-navigation capabilities 2001-

US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, Aerospace & Technology Committee,
Asteroid Danger Commission Hearings 1999.  Congressional set goals by 2010 for NASA and the Military to find all asteroids larger than one Kilometer; by 2016 NASA declared they had found 90%, however, astronomers with automated discoveries have been driving this estimate downward significantly.  

John Douglass, Presidential Commission on the Future of Aerospace,
& President of the Aerospace Industries Association (c/o student Darren Jobe);

Admiral Crowe, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1989.  Reset Defense Early Warning Radars DEW Line at his own initiative to long wave-length to search for two tandem asteroids on collison course with Earth, while the Soviet Union was collapsing;  and provided parallel processor computers at highest priority to Eleanor Helin, PhD at the request of Brock d'Avignon.

David Brin, PhD, astrophysicist, dark comets author, screenplay writer; Resigned from NASA in protest of their halving the numbers of Earth-Path crossing asteroids.  

John Schaubrook, Australia-to-US Night-to-Day I-net Telescope-Link

Charles Barlow, USX Public Relations, former Geneva steel plant COO 1978. for his review of Brock d'Avignon's proposal, United Space Steel, and its effect on steel workers morale to purchase the Bessemer Plant as a research prototype for space steel production in its normal course of business.  

Stephen Zollweg, Ancient Documents and Science Historian

Greg Baker, Vice President, BOEING Defense Aircraft, later Aerotest; who proposed to Joe Alsbaugh, President of Boeing Space & Communications Division, how to make money off asteroid collateral now, and increase its value by Boeing’s declaration to go to one or more, that would create borrowable funds to pay for getting there. Alsbaugh, president George Bush’s campaign manager ignored it, to whom Baker called up one morning to caution, “Snooze, You Lose”.

Colonel Henebray, USAF Contracts, ret, member Federal Bar Assn; organized airborne, high-speed laser intercept of ICBMs, and its possible use against small meteors in discussion with Brock d'Avignon.  

Jim Mietus, Office of Management & Budget, Executive Branch, Science & Energy Advisor to numerous presidents through 2008 who cautioned d'Avignon against politicians' avarice for space resources’ value.

President Barack Obama, 2008 ignored and in 2012 acted upon a  Transition Teams Accepted Proposal submitted by students, led by Brock d'Avignon, for a Planetary Asteroid Defense Office (PADO) and spaceweather screen in the Situation Room with a single primary reporting point (a fax machine in a broom closet if nothing else) for the president to know about possible impacts (and any preventative action possible, ahem). This   resulted in the President's May 2012 order to NASA Director Goldin to create a Planetary Defense Office (PDO) over his objections to which he was threatened to be fired if he didn’t do it. The PADO is to coordinate all asteroid related activities throughout the government. Other than worthless missions to large known surveyed asteroids Ceres & Vesta, and a comet impactor, nothing else has been done. NASA’s budget is always spent 5-years in advance.

People who received these ADDD summaries without direct known action:
Karl Rove, Special Advisor to the President
General Jones, CO EURCOM, former Commandant of the Marine Corps; 2000 proposal by USMC Congressional Liaison Major Mike Walker and Pentagon Space Plans Action Officer Major Gayle for Space Marines for manned space point defense operations. The USAF got the mission with which it has done nothing as Project Raven can barely see orbital space debris unless it borrows scopes from academia like to see Space shuttle tiles missing from Senator john Glenn’s Space Shuttle, yet never looks beyond orbit since 2000 other-unwise.

Dr. Anthony Tether, Director of DARPA, in regard to robotic vehicles to which he brought attention to the Science Committee for the U.S. Congress.

General Simon Worden PhD Astrophysics, USAF ret, US Space Command; retired NASA Ames Center Asteroid Defense Mission; received both ADDD and quantification of Antarctica hit of a small house -sized asteroid and global 5-billion deaths consequences. He is an advocate of finding small asteroids.

General Myers, Admiral Mullen, Chairmen, Joint Chiefs of Staff

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Unified Command Plan, Quadrennial Military Review and 2001 Review with proposal for a Planetary Asteroid Defense Command PADCOM addendum. An Administrative Service District (ASD) for the US government of a “Space Czar” resulted for coordination of all asteroid defense measures. Nothing has been done.
