Space-Xplosion: No UFOs, Aliens or other Wierdness involved



The Space-Xplosion

…by Ian Greenhalgh and Jeff Smith, VT Editors

A week has gone by since I published the article explaining how the Space-X rocket was destroyed. In that time, the internet has been rife with all kinds of far out theories of what happened, many of them involving UFOs and Aliens and a lot of esoteric crap. Well, there is absolutely no room in this narrative for any of that for the simple reason that we know what happened and it leaves no gaps for anything other-worldly, as Jeff explains:

Basically we know what happened who did it and why. No UFO’s. No magic fairy dust etc. Just good old cold war games. The only part that people refuse to believe is that 5th generation high tech weapons exist and work. However the Chinese and the Israelis do know this stuff and how it works. The general public would rather believe in UFO’s and vampires first. So it’s an up-hill battle to try and educate them because they refuse to believe in the truth. They still think that the earth is flat etc………

In our previous article, we pointed the finger at the on-board lithium batteries as being the likely material that underwent a fission-fusion event resulting in a small nuclear explosion. After taking time to study the design of the rocket however, we now think that it was the helium carried on board that produced the bang, as Jeff explained:

The part that went bang was full of helium pressurization tanks only. If you hit a pressure tank full of helium with enough x-rays and or neutrons…BANG! This section was made up of carbon fiber and thin aluminum. X-rays will go through that like a hot knife through butter.

So the hohlraum effect took place when the x-rays bombarded the tank of helium?

YES!. The Hohlraum Effect or rather it was a “Hohlraum Explosion” of either the Helium and or the Lithium in the on-board batteries. Single stage fission / fusion triggered by an external X-ray source / laser….Creating a small nuclear explosion in the helium tank / batteries. The bright white flash with the lens flare is it’s optical signature.

The blast is a plasma explosion of the Helium tanks / Lithium batteries in a section of the rocket that has no explosive material in it. The hot plasma spills out setting off a rocket fuel fire/explosion in the second stage fuel tank. So the only question is what ignited the Helium?. Only high power radiation can do that.


There was no overpressure or blow out of structural material in the first explosion it was all thermal radiation. The blast came later. The satellite then fell to the ground many seconds later proving that it still had structural support.

The lens flare proves that the source of radiation came from behind the camera producing standing waves that make the lens flare. Good old optics 101. How do you get rid of lens flare in a photo shoot? Move the camera’s position or change the lighting angle.


The ‘Orb’

Everyone has seen the video now and the clearly visible round ‘orb’ that moves across the screen from right to left. The tinfoil hat people have been bombarding me with emails about this orb and my failure to identify it as an alien craft armed with strange beam weapons that defies the laws of physics or something similarly esoteric.

Sorry folks, it’s a drone, very terrestrial, very much made by humans, very much not ET or alien or anything weird, nor is it defying physics or flying at incredible speed, as Jeff explains:

The rocket is about 300 feet tall measure it with a ruler and turn it sideways to measure how far apart the towers are. These big dummies want to believe so they will cook up just about anything to prove it. Two falsie’s do not make a positive. The drone is a recon drone.

It’s moving at about 45 mph. 120 feet per second is about 60mph. The towers are about 300 feet apart. Count the seconds.

Various types of surveillance drone. These are all old photos, the latest drones are considerably more advanced.

Little Green Men from Mars or Space Invaders from Uranus?

Apart from the ‘Orb’, there really is nothing about this incident that could possibly give rise to thoughts of ET involvement, yet there are legions of people who are talking about exactly that – the involvement of ETs. I find it both amusing and a little perplexing, but Jeff has some insight into why this is:

Like I said people will believe anything but the truth because they can’t handle the truth. This is why everyone has their own version of reality that they carry with them. They are not crazy they just walk to a different beat.

So the Psyop people play this up big time. They are hiding the x-ray laser technology by claiming little green men from Mars did it. This is why the tinfoil hat shills attack what we say….

The French scientist Gustave Le Bon wrote the book on this tactic. Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini all used his tactics for mind control of the masses.

Jeff is correct, there are a number of websites and authors who are guilty of seeding the thoughts of ET in people’s minds, they are part of the Psyop, the cover to hide the existence and use of state of the art high-tech weapons.

We will cover the high tech weapon in question – the pulsed X-ray laser, in our next article. I will leave the last thought to Jeff:

Ian remember we are now dealing with 5th generation modern weapon systems. This is probably 3rd or 4th generation laser technology. Just like in 5th generation mini nukes we have had this technology for over 60 years. So back in 1945 when we detonated the 1st A-bomb nobody would believe it until we dropped one on Japan.

This more or less is the same event for laser weapons technology. Nobody will believe it until you show it off. Just like we did with the A-bomb and Stalin at Yalta. This time it was Obama at the G-20 summit in China. Timing is everything…..

  1. Explained in VT´s previous 9-11 articles, the freon tanks beneath the WTC structures enabled the “Hohlraum” effect.
    Provided the “genuine schematic” of the rocket, several “respondees” could explain whether the rocket package contained the ingredients for a repeat of the Hohlraum effect. Major (Ret) Ed Dames´ graduate students, and individuals with the gift, could explain IF- perhaps HOW- the MOSSAD/CIA planned to use the nuke package. Former MOSSAD spy, Ari Ben-Menashe described the chief of the MOSSAD as, “He (Nachum Admoni) got the job because the man in line to take over the post, Gen. Yekutiel Adam, was assassinated by his own people.”(Profits of War – ,” p. 185) Which, reminds of the CIA´s Lee H. Oswald, the 3,000 and the “Jewish” constituency among the 3,000 outside Giuliani´s circle, more recently the CIA´s Chris Stevens, and numerous persons too “unimportant” to publish. Remote-viewer types might also explain IF the package were planned for an “unimportant” village in “Israel”, and IF, as the initial function of an “October Surprise of 2016.” As per usual, Iran or Putin – or both – would be blamed. “Remote viewer” types might reveal IF the MOSSAD/CIA event would be the “Reichtag Fire” for the MOSSAD/CIA to nuke additional MOSSAD/CIA targets, while publishing a threat toward Russia, attempting to prevent Russian intervention and delay WW3.
    Of course, these ideas are offered only as postulates, following Mr. Greenhalgh´s pattern.

  3. Here is # 1 – it’s super slomo – best viewed with VLC to change speed and get snapshots in .jpg with 300 dpi – I then reformat to .bmp and edit each single frame. Original frame size is and stays 1280×738 300 dpi
    uncompressed. The difference is the file size: .jpeg = 119 KB whereas .bmp = 2.76 MB

    I slowed down the video of the Falcon 9 explosion that occurred today. It is obvious that the cause involved the second stage, which was being fueled at the time.

  4. A very strange event. Hard to buy anything that I’ve heard so far. Watching the video in a normal media programme (VLC), At normal speed something moves very quickly across the bottom of the screen from right to left before the Drone(?) moves from the top right corner. The VLC plays at 29 FPS, and, using the “e” key the frames can be watched one by one. The Drone(?) crosses towards the rocket over three frames: That is 3/29ths of a second. The next frame, 1/29th sec, sees the rocket blow (in complete silence: No sound untill the rocket head collapses to the ground) and 3/29ths of a second after that a strangely square piece of debris leaves the rocket travelling skyward at about 45deg right. It nags you know. But there is more to this than told or guessed. I have wondered whether the drone fired a RF signal. But cannot as yet say anything makes sense.

    • Pyotr, May I point out something about your calculation with VLC. It’s an allround media plaver that depends on so called codecs to even run clips. Every typ of video clip format like .mp4, .avi, .webm, .3gpp and so on have different algorithms they run by. One concerns the way the images are compressed and effects the frame rate, the other part for the quality of the sound. VLC identifies the format and selects the correct codec automatically. There are dozens of different codecs and VLC downloads and installs them on your equipment. You need a very good video editor to find out the true properties of the clip including it’s frame rate to be correct with your assumption. A good editor numbers each and every frame including the duration. When you insert a still image with a duration of 5 seconds you are not looking at a film like in the old days. The media player will stop running and pause for that length of time and start sending new frames to your screen after that time.

  5. You can use it any time you like. Fair play.
    I suppose photobucket reformatted and resized it during uploading – I’ll have to find a differant provider that doesn’t do such nasty things. I’ll check out what happened. I uploaded a .bmp with 300 dpi and the size should be 1280×738 and 2,70 MB. But I can send it to you by eMail if you like just to make sure. I’ll make a second one and edit in the explosion. At the moment I’m trying to make an animated .gif of the orb.
    I don’t recall which site I got it from because I downloaded it with several others for my own private archive.
    Name: SpaceX_Static_Fire_Anomaly_1_250x_speed_hd720.mp4 – this one is a super slomo and it’s great to follow every detail. The clip is 73 MB and lasts about 21 minutes!
    The second ones name is: SpaceX_Static_Fire_Anomaly_slow_motion_hd720.mp4 and starts with the original real time lasting 1:14 followed by close up in slomo. In real time you hardly notice the blob because it’s less than a second flying from right to left.
    I left out the explosion my image because in this case I was only focusing on the blob itself, the up and down movement and the spacing from frame to frame. The initial explosion starts with frame # 8.
    Basically the pic is frame one and then cutting and pasting just the orb from each consecutive frame in it’s correct position.

  6. The usual sources are trying to throw cold water all over this story, makes me sick. When will these media whores be slapped down for good? The fact that the owner of the company in question has no clue as to what actually happened, speaks volumes. He says they are interested in a ” quiet boom ” prior to the explosion. Would this be a means of cover by suggestion? Steering one away from hi-tech toward a missile or object seems ridiculous to me.


    • I go way back therefor, far too many to count. My favorite was the entity known as ” deep throat ” take it as you will my friend.


  7. I just edited a good 300 dpi copy of the clip concerning the orb or blob. It is clearly visible on 16 frames, minus 1 behind the logo! I layered them onto one single frame and to me it is obvious that the movement is not that of a flying object, because it doesn’t travel in a straight line nor at the same speed. Look for yourself.
    I uploaded it on photobucket for everyone to see and judge for themselves what it really could be.

  8. There’s no chemical reaction involved, it’s simply the Hohlraum effect. This is the basis of the second stage of a Teller-Ulam 2-stage hydrogen bomb. A metal container full of hydrogen is irradiated by the explosion of the primary stage and undergoes a fission-fusion event, greatly increasing the size of the explosion. Helium and lithium are two of several other substances that will go bang if irradiated. In this case, a metal tank of helium was irradiated by x-rays, the Hohlraum effect occurred and we get a small nuclear bang of around 0.1kt.

  9. Ian, I don’t get it how you do the math. I can look up to the sky every day and watch jets flying by en route between Stuttgart and Zürich. They are only 8 000 meters away, that is 8 kilometers up, twice the distance between that camera and launch pad and yet they seem to be crawling across the sky. Yet I know as everyone else here can find out they are traveling up to 800 km/h.
    Even with clouds as a possible reference it is almost impossible to judge the speed on film because they are very rarely both at the same height. So where is the reference point needed to calculate the distance of the ‘blob’ in the first place? The rocket itself? The towers? How do you do the triangulation?

    • I didn’t do any math, Jeff did. Personally, I haven’t spent any time looking at the orb because it’s perhaps the least significant aspect of this whole narrative.

  10. Steve K, I support you all the way concerning the distance of that ‘blob’. If it cannot even be identified for what it appears to some, so there is no means by calculating it’s distance from the camera in the first place. I’ve been filming almost all my life and have had many strange blobs speeding past my lenses. Mostly flies, bugs or bees and they were no more than a few feet away.
    You have to positively identify that object and that is to know it’s true size, or it’s just guessing and assuming. Due to the speedy movement you cannot even prove it to be behind the towers either. Not when it’s 4 kilometers away. I made a copy of the sound track and it’s almost exactly 12,4 sec between the first flash and arrival of the explosion. Multiply that by 333 meters per second, or just calculate 3 sec for 1 kilometer. That’s how I judge the distance of lightning during a thunderstorm.

  11. You are talking down to us. I don’t think that’s necessary and it’s bad manners.
    It’s not like Jeff Smith is the only one on planet Earth who knows the score!
    And most who are trying to make sense of all this think the current scene is a product of ET-human interaction. The research I am familiar with says for sure that ET is in our past, and is more than likely in our present.
    You guys ARE being more level-headed than some of the “ET nuts” and other over-enthusiastic New Agers. But that’s probably not your main audience.
    If the whole “ET thing” is a psyop, could you please back that up with some data? As far as I know, J-rod really existed. The story being put out by Sean David Morton is somewhat suspect. Corey Goode, on the other hand, was there and believes what he is saying. So does Simon Parkes. So how are these guys all running psyops on us, and how can you demonstrate that’s true? What makes your data so much more trustworthy?

  12. Brer Diesel, That is no big deal. The first article was obviously done as a quick impression from the early images that we had. At that stage any mention of ET equipment includes government equipment as they have stuff the public would views as such. We have always considered this and stories like it “works in progress” and we adjust as we get new facts and input, the same process that well hell Intel agencies use.

  13. Steve K, the distance is known as the sound of the explosion arrives 12 s after the flash, which means the scene is at least 12 * 340 m = 4 km. As the objects moves behind the rocket, it is farther than that.

    Dr Bhelthi, postulating is ok, but boasting and trying to discredit opposite views is not.

  14. mr. Greenhalgh is a photographer and likes constructing an electric bike in his spare time. However, that does not mean we should not believe him for what he has been told by others. In fact, at first I could not believe what Michael Shrimpton was writing on VT. But When Gordon Duff came out in solid defence of Mr. Shrimpton, and the Shrimpton London Nuke claim as supporting evidence of the 9/11 nukes (and the complete and proven hoax of the directed energy technology by Judy Wood playing a part in the 9/11 freefall) then I changed my mind and started believing anything Michael Shrimpton wrote. Gordon Duff corrected me on Hillary and Soros as well. And think we should vote for Hillary instead of Trump. Extrapolating from those personal course corrections, I am now convinced of the explanation that mr. Greenhalgh has given on SpaceX. And that it was brought down by a beam, although Judy Wood somehow is still wrong about her directed energy beam. Which is something I will still have to get me head around. But I will read VT more and faith will make up for a lot.

  15. I never ever believed in that alien crap. I would very much like to know who did it? and why? You say you know, please share??


  16. The second go-around-article on the event is even more interesting than the first, to me, anyway.
    When the original, UFO article by Ben Rich and the Skunk Works appeared, perhaps 2008, the picture of the scientist underneath that of Ben Rich and the F-117 was not Don Phillips. The raytheon scientist stated approximately, ” – anything you saw in Buck Rogers comic books we already have.”
    It would be interesting to know the total of extraterrestrial vehicles that have been downed to earth by laser-beam technology. That such vehicles have been tracked by USAF radar since the 1950s is known by thousands of USAF radar operators, two older ones of which I have known for over 60 years. My first knowledge of such radar events occurred in Alaska, 1955, by the USAF tracking station on Fire Island, that usually tracked Russian Bears. However, Russian Bears do not accelerate from Hover at 2,000 feet to 3,000 mph at 10,000 ft. in one sweep of the radar.
    Will Ian and others make the 3rd go-around-article on the “detonation” event more interesting than the 2nd?

  17. One issue that hasn’t been raised is the legality of it all. The President/military gets to blow up a civilian business on American soil and it’s not questioned? What’s next? What are the long term repercussions going to be?

  18. Most if not all UFOs are man-made.

    Well done, Ian (and Jeff). Am looking forward to your follow-on article/s.

  19. What was the reason for this? What was the technology they wanted to keep out of the hands of the Chinese?

  20. All your fabricated BS is made on ONE false assumption : the speed of the supposed drone. Having watch many times the video, it’s obvious that the speed your calculate for the supposed drone is completely ridiculous. in this video ( ) it traverses the screen in less than a quarter of a second. As the falcon-9 rocket is 70m high, we can assume that the width of the scene is 150m wide, which mean that the unknown object flies at minimum 600 m/s of speed, or 2160 km/h. And there is no drone known flying that speed, except perhaps secret military ones. But even this could not explain the second and immediate venue of the ‘drone’ in opposite direction at 45 degrees, because with current technologie this would need a deceleration, a U-turn and an acceleration, which is absolutely not the case.
    And finally your way of boasting others’ point of view is just incompatible with journalism.

  21. Some sense at last – about time we got away from the aliens and all that Psyop/ Psychosis/ Comfort Zone garbage that is the walking trade of Neurotypicals emotional systems.

  22. To get as personal as you Mr. Greenalgh:
    Hate seems to be important for your psyche Mr. Greenalgh. Whenever I have the mixed blessing to read your pouring out your contempt and dislikes in your own personal way, I know, I meet the prototype again. I am grateful to you for providing me the contrast to sharpen my senses for BS and intended abuse of the missing information that most readers sometimes do have.
    What I miss in your piece here for example is the explanation of the necessary amounts of energy needeed for gamma ray lasers. Power sources able to do that are not existing in your own words. Nothing exotic here to see people, walk by, nothing to be seen.
    To be clear on that – I don´t care if UFO or Angel or the devil or whatever it was – I was just joyful and thankful of the fact, that the average Israeli would not be connected to the crimes they wanted to commit with that crap.
    You know Mr. Greenalgh, I think that hatred turns against the hater. Allways. In every case. AND it poisons the heart of the hater. What you pour out upon all your favorably disliked subjects, is mostly hitting yourself.
    I like it that way. Keep on goin! Provide contrast, its a win win situation.

    • Oh dear, a lot of hyperbole and bitterness in your post. Where do I mention gamma rays? Where have I written anything about the power requirements? I wrote at the end of this article that there will be a follow-up article giving more details of the weapon used.
