A new whistleblower has come forward to claim that he spent almost three years serving in a secret Space Fleet run by a multinational organization called the Earth Defense Force. In exclusive testimony released today on ExoNews TV, the whistleblower, who uses the pseudonym, Captain Kaye, said that the Earth Defense Force recruits personnel from the military services of different nations including China, Russia and the U.S. He claims that he was recruited from a covert branch of the U.S. Marine Corps called “Special Section,” after having served previously for 17 years on Mars protecting five human colonies from indigenous Martian life forms.

Captain Kaye’s testimony describes three different types of space fighters and three bombers that he was trained to fly. Training took place on secret moon base called Lunar Operations Command, Saturn’s moon Titan, and in deep space. The space fighters and bombers had different propulsion systems ranging from fission and fusion nuclear energy, an electro-gravitic system, temporal space drive and more traditional thruster systems. He also reveals the existence of at least five large cigar shaped space carriers that are capable of interstellar flight that house the smaller fighters and bombers. He claims he served on one called “EDF SS Nautilus” which was up to ¾ of a mile long.

Captain Kaye claims that there was strict enforcement of non-communications with Earth during one’s military service, and need-to-know requirements for operations outside the solar system. After completing his 20 year tour of duty, he describes a retirement ceremony on Lunar Operations Command that was presided over by VIPs including former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Parts of Captain Kaye’s testimony is consistent with the claims of other whistleblowers describing a secret space fleet. Most prominent among these is former President Ronald Reagan who alluded to a highly classified space fleet in the June 11, 1985 entry in his diaries where he revealed that “our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.” A succession of whistleblowers and aeronautical experts have come forward to reveal various details of advanced antigravity technologies that can, in the words of Ben Rich (former Lockheed Skunkworks CEO) “take ET home.” Captain Kaye is currently seeking documents to verify his incredible experiences, and for now offers his testimony as evidence of a break away human civilization that operates a secret space fleet.

New evidence emerges that Monroe planned to reveal JFK saw crashed UFOs

Comparison of CIA documents

New evidence has just been released supporting the authenticity of a leaked CIA document allegedly of wiretaps of Marilyn Monroe and her friends shortly before her suspicious death on August 4, 1962. The wiretap document revealed that Monroe was planning to give a press conference about what President Kennedy had told her of a visit to an undisclosed Air Force facility where he saw the debris of a crashed UFO. The Monroe wiretap document was first leaked in 1992 to a UFO researcher, and was made public in 1994. It has not been confirmed by the CIA to be genuine, and remains open to dispute. The new evidence that was revealed yesterday shows that the leaked document conforms closely to a standard classified Information Report form used by the CIA in 1963. Either someone broke the law by forging or using a standard CIA Information Report form for classified reports at the time of Monroe’s death, or the Monroe wiretap document was indeed a classified report about a wiretap of Monroe and her friends.

This is what the alleged CIA wiretap document, dated August 3, 1962, had to say about Monroe’s knowledge of Kennedy and UFOs:

Rothberg indicated in so many words, that she [Monroe] had secrets to tell, no doubt arising from her trists [sic] with the President and the Attorney General. One such “secret” mentions the visit by the President at a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space. 2. Subject repeatedly called the Attorney General and complained about the way she was being ignored by the President and his brother. 3. Subject threatened to hold a press conference and would tell all.
The discoverer of the CIA intelligence report is Lee Nicholson from the Outpost Forum. In his April 14 forum post he described what he found after visiting the CIA’s electronic reading room:
During the process of researching this article I spent several hours at the CIA’s electronic reading room looking at documents from the 1960s, in an attempt to find examples of similar typeface to that seen in our questioned document …. I discovered a CIA Information Report dated 18th March, 1963 with the subject heading: “Projected Soviet Space Launchings” which was declassified on the 16th of July 2011. This authentic CIA information report is an almost perfect match in style and presentation for the leaked ‘Marilyn document’.
Nicholson went on to describe new facts emerging from a comparison between the declassified CIA document and the Monroe wiretap document:
In fact a close comparison gleans some important new facts. Firstly, we can now see that both documents use the exact same form letter or template information report. Presumably the author would have a stack of these ‘blank’ forms which would be placed into a typewriter to add the relevant information before classification and distribution. We can also see that both documents contain the same secondary typeface, which is in fact Courier type commonly used on IBM typewriters in the 1960s.
Nicholson then described a series of parallels between the declassified 1963 Information Report and the leaked Monroe wiretap document. His conclusion was that they closely matched suggesting that the Monroe document is genuine.

The implications of the Monroe wiretap document being genuine are astounding. It reveals that only one day before her death, Monroe was planning a press conference that would reveal what President Kennedy had confidentially told her about UFOs. The fact that the CIA was monitoring her and wiretapping her phone calls, directly implicates the CIA in her suspicious death and the cover-up of information concerning UFOs.

UFO departs after contact-650
The popular website Third Phase of the Moon yesterday supplied more video footage from one of its viewers who claims to be an extraterrestrial contactee. “Ed”, who is yet to reveal his full name, claims that his contacts started in 1976. He said that while he was a young boy he witnessed a UFO with his uncle who was a former lieutenant in the US Army. Ed claims that soon after, he began having contact experiences with aliens in their spacecraft that continue to the present day. What makes Ed’s stories of contact different to others is that he has remarkably clear footage supporting his claims.

Yesterday’s video footage was recorded in 1987 and shows a UFO taking off during the night. It is emitting a powerful light towards the ground, and is the classic saucer shape. According to Ed, the light was used to both teleport him into the ship, and back to Earth. It was silent as it took off suggesting that the light was not related to any kind of propellant as would be expected from a rocket engine or vertical takeoff aircraft. Ed claims that he travelled back to his truck and then filmed in the direction where the spacecraft was situated, and filmed it as it took off. The approximate size of the spacecraft was approximately 80-120 feet wide, and about 50-80 feet high. He said that the extraterrestrial that communicated with him and that he met on the ship was named “Voss”.

Ed has supplied other video footage from his archive that is compelling evidence for his extraordinary claims. One video released on March 26 in particular is a classic flying saucer captured during daylight hours. His videos are fast becoming the most compelling from a US based contactee since the extraordinary George Adamski who thrilled audiences around the world with his stories and photos of alien contact in the 1950s and 1960s. Ed appears sincere in his claims and is currently providing a series of interviews to Blake Cousins founder of Third Phase of the Moon. The latest video supports Ed’s main contention that he has been contacted and visited by extraterrestrial visitors since 1976.

Does Curiosity Rover photo reveal buildings on Mars?

NASA’s Curiosity Rover has again transmitted intriguing pictures from the surface of Mars. On April 9, a photo was discovered that appears to show a set of buildings on top of a hill. On Earth, such building locations typically indicate strategic planning to give optimal views of the countryside to protect the inhabitants from attack. Did the Curiosity Rover photograph buildings on Mars that make up a base of unknown origin? If so, the buildings appear to have been constructed for strategic purposes in a Martian terrain that is hospitable to surface life contrary to what NASA has informed the public about Mars atmosphere. The photo was uploaded in a YouTube video by an anonymous user, Streetcap1. The source for the photo is NASA’s JPL website. It would be a simple matter for the Curiosity Rover to travel to investigate the strange structures. Yet this is very unlikely according to UFO Sightings Scott Waring who wrote in a blog post today:
This discovery was made by Streetcap1 of Youtube. He found some structures on a hill in one of the Mars Curiosity rover photos. Look at the above photo and pay special attention to the white shiny walls on top of the hill. The walls are white on one side due to reflection and dark shadowy on the other side due to the suns angle. Is NASA trying to move the rover away from these obstacles to prevent the public from learning about life on Mars? SCW
According to NASA, Mars atmosphere is 95% carbon dioxide with only a trace amount of oxygen 0.13% – not enough to sustain life on Mars. Yet a series of Curiosity Rover photos have shown what appear to be small animals such as squirrels, lizards and ducks on Mars. If the Rover images do show such animals surviving on the Martian surface, then Waring is correct that NASA is actively preventing “the public from learning about life on Mars.”

The latest Curiosity Rover photo follows another released on April 3 that appeared to show an artificial light on the Mars surface. Media interest grew quickly forcing NASA scientists to publicly explain it. NASA’s explanation of a “vent-hole light leak” or a “glinty rock” was widely ridiculed.

On April 8, testimony was released by a whistleblower who alleges that a military base exists on Mars with the goal of protecting five human colonies from indigenous Martian life. He claims to have served on the military base for 17 years. Fantastic as such claims seem given what is officially known about Mars atmosphere, the latest Curiosity Rover photo showing what appear to be buildings, does make claims of secret military and civilian bases on Mars plausible. Further Curiosity Rover images showing small animal life forms along with strange lights on the Martian surface serve as further evidence of life existing on Mars surface, and of NASA actively covering this up.

Whistleblower claims he served 17 years at secret Mars military base

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in exonews, galactic diplomacy

A new whistleblower has come forward to claim that he spent 17 years on Mars serving at a secret military base whose main mission was to protect five civilian space colonies. In exclusive testimony released today on ExoNews TV, the whistleblower, who uses the pseudonym, Captain Kaye, said that the Mars Defense Force recruits personnel from different military services. He claims that he was recruited from a covert branch of the U.S. Marine Corps called “Special Section.”

Captain Kaye’s testimony reveals that the main human colony on Mars is called Aries Prime which is located inside a crater. Aries Prime serves as the headquarters for the Mars Colony Corporation. According to Captain Kaye, the air is breathable on the surface of Mars, and the temperature could be warm at times.

He claims that there are two indigenous species on Mars, both of which are highly intelligent. One of these was a Reptilian species that was very aggressive in defending its territory. The other was an Insectoid species that was equally capable of protecting its territory. He said that indigenous Martians are not particularly interested in expanding their territory, only maintaining it. Captain Kaye said that as long as the Mars Defense Force and Mars Colony Corporation did not encroach on the territory of the indigenous Martians, there would be stable relations.

After serving 17 years of a 20 year tour of duty, events changed dramatically when virtually all combat personnel from the Mars Defense force were asked to retrieve an extraterrestrial artifact from a cave sacred to the indigenous Reptilians. Captain Kaye described how over 1000 men and women were killed in a subsequent battle and only 28 of his colleagues, including himself, survived.

Captain Kaye is currently seeking documents to verify his incredible experiences, and for now offers his testimony as evidence of a break away human civilization based on Mars. Parts of his testimony is consistent with the claims of other whistleblowers who have previously come forward to reveal secret events on Mars. Michael Relfe, for example, claims that he also was recruited for a 20 year tour of duty that involved covert operations on Mars. Also, Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, the great granddaughter of President Eisenhower, claims that covert efforts were made to recruit her to join a colony on Mars that was headed by famed physicist, Dr Hal Puthoff. Finally, Captain Kaye’s claims that Mars has a breathable atmosphere is supported by a number of NASA images revealing small animals on the surface.

Strange light appears on Mars: evidence of an underground base?

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in science and technology

Light on Mars-650px Light on Mars-650px
A photograph just released from the Mars Curiosity Rover reveals a strange nearby light that appears artificial. The image was part of a batch just uploaded from the Mars Curiosity Rover that were originally recorded on April 3, 2014 by the Right Navigation Camera. The image with the time stamp of 10:00:34 UTC shows an unusual light on the Martian surface only a mile or so away. The light does not appear to be related to the sun or any natural atmospheric phenomenon such as dust storms that have been known to produce lightning on Mars. The light is too distant to clearly identify but appears to be coming from underground suggesting an artificial light source located beneath the Martian surface.

The Curiosity Rover image was uploaded by NASA on April 3, 2014, and was seen by Youtube user Streetcap who posted a video today revealing the strange Martian light.There is no nearby atmospheric activity such as a dust storm that the image or other images in the same batch from the Curiosity Rover reveal. Dust storms can produce lightning as was observed in imagery taken by the Mars Orbiter Camera in June 2006 that was the first confirmation of lightning on Mars.

Another possible explanation is underground lightning which happens on Earth due to the rotation of molten metal beneath the Earth’s crust which creates rotating electric fields vital for creating a powerful magnetosphere. Mars, however, has no inner crustal dynamo comparable to Earth, and its magnetosphere is a fraction of Earth’s. It is therefore unlikely that underground lightning is a naturally occurring phenomenon on Mars. The light emission in the Curiosity Rover image is not likely a result of underground lightning.

Another explanation may be lensflare which is caused by a light source just outside of the image field being captured on camera. The most common source of lensflare is the setting or rising sun. However the light in the Curiosity Mars Rover does not appear to be a lensfIare caused by the sun given the lack of shadows in the nearby terrain. If the light source was from the Curiosity itself, then that would have been observed in the Mars images.

If both dust storm and underground lightning is ruled out, together with lens flare, then it raises the possibility that the light is an emission from some artificial underground source. Consequently, the light anomaly recorded by the Curiosity Rover may be evidence of an underground base on Mars.

The ExoNews TV episode released today is the first in a five part series about the explosive testimony of Captain K an anonymous whistleblower, who claims he served as a member of an elite Marine Corps unit that provides personnel for a secret military bases on the Moon, Mars and other parts of the solar system. He describes a break away human civilization that operates in outer space. Captain K agreed to give over five hours of video testimony of his experiences which have been recorded via Skype, and will first be released as audio files.

In part one of this series, we learn about Captain Kaye’s background where he began having strange experiences with extraterrestrials as far back in his childhood as he could recall. He believes that external intervention in his life, whether by aliens or U.S. military, went as far back as the time of his conception where his DNA was altered.

At five years of age, Captain Kaye was recruited into a covert US Marine Corps training program for super soldiers called Operation Moon Shadow. 300 children, both males and females, were involved in Operation Moon Shadow. Training took place at Marine Corps facilities. He was trained to develop his strength, agility and strategic thinking that would be needed later in his military service for off world missions. He recalled that at age 13, training shifted to include live weapons and working with adult special forces personnel who were both puzzled and impressed by the adolescents they were training with.

Extraterrestrial Intervention in Ukraine

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in world politics

Ukraine-Orion-Crusaders
Ukraine-Orion-Crusaders
In an article published today on ExoNews.org, Richard Cook, a former NASA engineer and U.S. Treasury official for over two decades, shared some unusual insights about what is driving the Ukraine conflict. Cook’s analysis takes us much further than the geopolitical machinations of great powers jockeying for regional influence. He goes far beyond the musings offered by the mainstream media focusing on the psychology of key political leaders. Cook goes to the heart of a problem confronting humanity. An extraterrestrial presence that has both benign and malevolent factions, the latter of which acts as a third force that manipulates political elites and nations into self-destructive wars.

In his article titled, “Making Sense of Ukraine Through a History of Extraterrestrial Intervention,” Cook elaborates on the Ukraine conflict. He uses communications from the RA material to elaborate upon the different extraterrestrial factions that have intervened in human affairs in our recent history. He identifies two main factions. The first of which he explains:

The RA Material explains that the influx of UFOs/ETs starting around the time of World War II was prompted by the acquisition by mankind of nuclear energy and weapons. This led the higher-vibration beings who stand watch to make their presence known on planet earth. According to RA, these beings constitute a “Council of Guardians” whose headquarters are on the rings of Saturn. Other sources call this Council “The Nine.” Working with them are other extraterrestrial entities who together form the “Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator.”
With regard to the negative faction, Cook explains:
But the opening of the protective gates around earth has also allowed negative entities to slip through. Chief among these, says RA, have been the Crusaders of Orion. These are beings of self-serving character who try to gather disciples interested in manipulating, controlling, and enslaving others. In fact, RA adds, a majority of the UFO appearances of modern times have been of these Crusaders. These are the ones responsible for abductions, animal mutilations, and gloom-and-doom-type channelings. They are allowed by the order of things to prey on human beings, but only by appealing to people’s weaknesses, such as pride, lust, etc. It is the weak-minded who fall for their deceptions and try to use black magic to contact them.
Cook’s analysis then identifies the hidden hand of the third force behind the Ukraine conflict, the “Crusaders of Orion”:
But why is Russia seen increasingly as an enemy? Didn’t we rejoice when the Soviet Union fell and its component states went democratic? Wouldn’t it make more sense to embrace Russia as the return of a long-lost friend to the fold of well-intentioned nations? Instead, it almost seems as if powerful elements behind the scenes want to foment a major war with Russia and possibly China. It makes no sense. The negative frame of mind this attitude signifies is harmful to the point of being pathological. Is it too much to speculate that the hand of the Chariots of Orion is fueling the fire with fear and war-hysteria? Are they stirring the pot just for the delight in seeing people suffer?
Cook’s analysis finally takes us into the real predicament facing humanity today. Most people have been induced into a kind of sleep paralysis where they are not awake to the third force manipulating human affairs:
Also according to RA, the Confederation inspired earth’s scientists to bring forth the technology that gives humanity the opportunity for the leisure required for spiritual pursuits. But technology has been perverted by the Crusaders’ minions for economic exploitation and weapons of war. They use such “gadgets” as television and advertising to keep humanity asleep. Even the internet is used for negative as well as positive purposes. In the Ukraine incident, the Western media are working overtime to demonize Russia and its leaders. Leaders of the Republican Party mock President Obama for his supposed weakness in not being more aggressive, saying, as did former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, that the American people “cannot afford to be war-weary.” This is worse than insanity in a world on the brink.
Cook’s article is very helpful insofar as it introduces the reader to a third force manipulating political elites from both sides to embark on self-destructive wars. In an earlier article, I discussed how a hacked phone call between the Estonian Foreign Minister and the European Union’s Foreign Affairs chief, revealed how a shadowy third force was behind the sniper attacks against both protesters and police. I concluded that “the chaos in the Ukraine may be a result of a secret exopolitics conflict between Putin’s Russia and the international power elite responsible for maintaining secrecy about UFOs and extraterrestrial life.” Cook’s analysis casts light on who is behind this international power elite, or third force, manipulating national governments and populations.

While some may question the authenticity of the channeled information the makes up the RA material, it does provide helpful insights into the hidden forces behind international conflict. Cook’s article is an invitation to investigate the possibility of a third force manipulating international conflict, along with the likelihood that it is other worldly in origin.

Will NSA leak bring extraterrestrial disclosure without official acknowledgement?

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in exopolitics research

NSA Leaked documents and UFOs
NSA Leaked documents and UFOsThe use of a faked Facebook server by the NSA to spread malware is the latest in a string of leaks from the Edward Snowden cache of NSA files that has led to senior Intelligence officials scrambling for ways to defuse another troubling revelation. As documents continue to emerge at a steady rate, a pattern is now becoming clearer. While much of the general public and international media accept the authenticity of the leaked documents, NSA officials and their national intelligence partners refuse to directly acknowledge their authenticity. Yesterday, according to an article in The Intercept by Ryan Gallagher, one of the journalists working with the Snowden NSA files, public authorities again issued evasive responses not acknowledging any wrong doing. Earlier, on February 24, The Intercept released a document from the NSA’s British equivalent that contained slides of UFOs used for training covert operatives in on-line operations. No explanation was given for why and how the UFO images were being used. Was this clear evidence that UFOs were known to be real interplanetary objects, or simply a convenient way of obfuscating other issues being discussed online? This suggests that among NSA files yet to be released, there may be more relating to UFOs. This raises the intriguing possibility that one or more of the upcoming NASA file releases may make public official knowledge of extraterrestrial life, and a cover-up approved by senior national security officials in the U.S. and elsewhere. This would lead to an indefinite period where the existence of alien life becomes widespread public knowledge, while senior officials give evasive responses that neither negate nor confirm the authenticity of the documents in question.

Here is how Gallagher summarized the NSA’s response to the latest leak:

In response, the NSA has attempted to quell the backlash by putting out a public statement dismissing what it called “inaccurate” media reports. The agency denied that it was “impersonating U.S. social media or other websites” and said that it had not “infected millions of computers around the world with malware.” The statement follows a trend that has repeatedly been seen in the aftermath of major disclosures from documents turned over by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, in which the NSA or one of its implicated allies issues a carefully worded non-denial denial that on the face of it seems to refute an allegation but on closer inspection does not refute it at all.
Essentially, the strategy being pursued by the NSA and its partners to leaks identifying its policies and practices is to respond with a “carefully worded non-denial denial.” In NSA or its partner responses – intelligence doublespeak to put it simply – there is neither direct acknowledgement nor disavowal of the authenticity of the leaked document. It is then left to the public and mass media to draw their own conclusions and analyses from the documents.

The practice of not acknowledging leaked classified files is not surprising. Senior Intelligence Community officials in the U.S.A. generally take the position that until documents have been officially declassified, viewing or discussing them by any public official is a violation of standard security protocols that could lead to the revocation of one’s security clearance and even criminal charges. This creates problems for intelligence community workers who are officially not allowed to read classified material to which they have not been approved for access, even though it is appearing in the mass media.

When it comes to the issue of extraterrestrial life, there are other reasons why public officials would be reticent to publicly acknowledge the authenticity of any leaked NSA files. If a government agency or corporation was to go on the record to being part of a decades long cover-up of extraterrestrial life, then they would be open to class action law suits to parties injured by such a cover up. In particular, individuals that have been directly involved in the UFO abduction phenomenon – hundreds of thousands according to some estimates – could now sue agencies, corporations and officials involved in such activities. The threat of class action law suits is the Sword of Damocles hanging over the head of official extraterrestrial disclosure. That is probably the biggest reason why official disclosure won’t be happening any time soon. However, there may still be “public disclosure” in the form of “a non-denial denial” as Gallagher describes the now familiar response by the NSA and its partners to the Snowden document leaks.

Consequently, we may very soon witness the following scenario. Future document releases from the Snowden cache of NSA files, or some other whistleblower source, reveal unambiguously that extraterrestrial life exists and that official agencies have been cooperating in covering this up. The NSA and its partner agencies issue the now familiar response to past leaks that neither acknowledges a document’s authenticity nor refutes it. To put it simply, we would have public disclosure of alien life through leaked official documents, yet there would be no “official disclosure” acknowledging this. An intriguing possibility by all means, but certainly something that may well happen, and could last for an indefinite period of time.

Astropolitics and the Exopolitics of Unacknowledged Space Activities

Written by Dr Michael Salla on . Posted in Announcements, exopolitics research

Space-Top-Secret-Activities Space-Top-Secret-ActivitiesEver wondered what kinds of highly classified military programs are happening in outer space?  Well if you happen to know something about one of them then chances are that it’s an Unacknowledged Special Access Program (USAP) and it’s a criminal offense to reveal anything about it to others. That creates a problem for the field of astropolitics which is dedicated to studying activities in outer space. As a field of study that began with the launch of the Soviet Sputnik satellite in 1957 and subsequent treaties ratified by space faring nations, astropolitics has grown into a multidisciplinary science studying a wide array of political, legal, economic and social issues related to publicly acknowledged activities in outer space. Yet when it comes to USAP’s there is precious little that is known about them by astropolitics scholars other than they exist and may impact “acknowledged” space activities in important areas of interest. This week, a novel approach to this problem was proposed in a respected peer reviewed academic journal on astropolitics that went live online on March 3. USAPs are a problem better left to the field of exopolitics which uses a very different approach to understanding what is happening in outer space.

 The latest edition of Astropolitics: The International Journal of Space Politics & Policy contains a paper titled, “Astropolitics and the ‘Exopolitics’ of Unacknowledged Activities in Outer Space.” For those that don’t yet know, exopolitics is broadly defined as the study of extraterrestrial life and its political implications, which raises much controversy among space scientists since most believe hard evidence is yet to be found for alien life. This has led to exopolitical scholars developing a range of social scientific tools to examine the available “soft” evidence that extraterrestrial life has been discovered and has been the subject of highly classified military/corporate programs for as much as seven decades. This soft evidence largely comprises whistleblower and first hand testimonies based on direct personal experiences. These testimonies are both hard to substantiate, yet difficult to completely dismiss. Something to be expected if the testimonies do genuinely involve USAPs.

This is where exopolitics offers astropolitics scholars a way of resolving the dilemma of what to do about USAPs. Many space scientists believe that in the absence of hard evidence, it is a waste of time speculating about what is happening with USAPs and the impact on space. Yet not to examine available soft evidence would mean that USAPs would continue indefinitely without any risk of exposure even though they may be significantly impacting on important space activities. The possibility that the impact may violate space treaties is an important area of concern.

The exopolitics approaches offers a way out of this dilemma since it can examine the available soft evidence in a way that does not compromise the discipline of astropolitics which would continue to focus on hard evidence concerning publicly acknowledged space activities. As a complement or sub-field of astropolitics, exopolitics offers a means of gaining insight into USAPs without turning astropolitics into a speculative field of study. Whether the proposal to incorporate exopolitics research into the astropolitics discipline succeeds or not, it is significant that the term “exopolitics” has now officially entered the academic lexicon. This suggests that at least some space scientists are interested in learning more about USAPs in Space. The day when astropolitics scholars begin learning about all activities in outer space, acknowledged and unacknowledged, may be arriving a lot sooner than expected.

Note: The article, “Astropolitics and the Exopolitics of Unacknowledged Space Activities” is available to subscribers of the Journal of Astropolitics here. An earlier version, the “Author’s Accepted Manuscript,” is available to non-subscribers here.
