Exclamation Project Echo

As Above Was the first passive communications satellite experiment.. Each of the 2 American spacecraft, launched in 1960 and 1964, was a metalized balloon satellite acting as a passive reflector of microwave signals. Communication signals were bounced off them from one point on Earth to another..The 30.5-meter (100 ft) diameter balloon was made of 0.5-mil-thick (12.7 ┬Ám) metalized 0.2-micrometre-thick (0.00787-mil) biaxially oriented PET film ("Mylar") material, and it was used to redirect transcontinental and intercontinental telephone, radio, and television signals...

1960 – USA – Sun – Success – Pioneer 5 solar monitor
1962 – UK – Earth – Success Ariel 1 the first British satellite in space (on American rocket)
1962 – Canada – Earth – Success – Alouette 1, the first Canadian satellite (on American rocket)
1964 – Italy – Earth – Success – San Marco 1, the first Italian satellite (on American rocket)
1965 – France – Earth – Success – Asterix, the first French satellite
1967 – Australia – Earth – Success – WRESAT, the first Australian satellite (on American rocket)...

Daniel Z has captured the entire incident and alerts an underground journalist, at the same time transferring the video to an innocuous computer disc. Reynolds learns of Zavitz's footage, and sends a team to recover the video. While fleeing, Zavitz runs into an old college friend, labor lawyer Robert Clayton Dean. Zavitz secretly passes the computer disc into Dean's shopping bag without his knowledge..Sorry, we can't come to the phone right now. If you leave a message..Where are you stationed, Captain, before you were picked up in transit.. Marty, excuse me. Let's deal in what we know and not what we don't.. We know he's escaped. We know it happened in Kent near the Channel.. An Older James spots an atomic satellite Zeroing..Ah, then you haven't been on the ice before either and all of a sudden, you know a whole damn lot about my business!..We operate on a first-name basis.. My Name is El Capitan ...

The use of high altitude nuclear explosions to destroy satellites was considered after the tests of the first conventional missile systems in the 1960s. During the Hardtack Teak test in 1958 observers noted the damaging effects of the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) caused by the explosions on electronic equipment, and during the Starfish Prime test in 1962 the EMP from a 1.4 Mt warhead detonated over the Pacific damaged three satellites and also disrupted power transmission and communications across the Pacific. Further testing of weapons effects was carried out under the DOMINIC I series. An adapted version of the nuclear armed Nike Zeus was used for an ASAT from 1962. Codenamed Mudflap, the missile was designated DM-15S and a single missile was deployed at the Kwajalein atoll until 1966 when the project was ended in favour of the USAF Thor-based Program 437 ASAT which was operational until 6 March 1975..Smoke grenades are canister-type grenades used as signaling devices, target or landing zone marking devices, or as screening devices for unit movements..Another type of smoke grenade is the bursting variation. These are filled with white phosphorus (WP), a pyrophoric agent which is spread quickly into a cloud by an internal bursting charge. White phosphorus burns with a brilliant yellow flame, while producing copious amounts of white smoke (phosphorus pentoxide) is a chemical compound with molecular formula P4O10 (with its common name derived from its empirical formula, P2O5).. This white crystalline solid is the anhydride of Phosphoric acid.. It is a powerful desiccant and dehydrating agent..Smoke grenades are used for several purposes.. The primary use is the creation Of smoke screens for concealment and the signalling of Aircraft Sow Below... In that state, yes. Contained, controlled. But it is nuclear fission... and it hates being confined even more than you do..The Russians put our camera made by *our* German scientists and your film made by *your* German scientists into their satellite made by *their* German scientists...
