Virgin Galactic Crash Has Conspiracy Theorists Minds Buzzing

It is a tragedy. The Virgin Galactic spaceship’s crash just after launch is the second space-related incident this week. One of NASA’s rockets exploded just after launch on what should have been a routine voyage to the International Space Station. What makes the Virgin Galactic incident more of a spark for conspiracy circles is that it is private industry beginning to move into what has already been a government-sanctioned area.
The United States government has slowly evolved on its position on the privatization of space travel. Just in the last few years have we seen the first examples of private companies making strides in the industry. The benefits are obvious. One, private companies are not using taxpayer dollars. Two, capitalism can be the mother of invention. The almighty dollar spurs these companies to fierce competition which moves technological advances along at a faster rate than government entities like NASA. These are all positives for you and I, but for the government there is still one huge glaring negative to this. It reduces the government’s ability to control space travel. Up until just lately, space travel was something that was wholly controlled by the government. It simply wasn’t feasible for anyone to do it without their help. That is all changing now, and the Virgin Galactic was another rung on that ladder.
So what are we saying? Well, it’s an unfortunate accident. Throughout NASA’s history, we’ve seen unfortunate accidents. It goes along with trailblazing. It’s just the way it is. New technologies are tested as much as they can, but until they are on the launching pad, no one can ever be sure. Mistakes happen. Mechanical devices fail. This is unavoidable, despite all the precautions put in place. It is the nature of the beast. However, there are those in conspiracy circles that believe that perhaps the government might be sabotaging some of the privatized operations because they don’t want to see them succeed. While there is some sensibility to the theory, there is absolutely no evidence at this time that the Virgin Galactic is anything more than what will probably turn out to be equipment failure. There are no other incidents of private space travel accidents to point to on the record books. While this could be the beginning, for now, we have to say that it looks like there’s nothing here. But if the government shuts down private space travel next week, things might start looking a little different. What do you think?

  1. If I were to theorise I would further say that the government does not want earthly citizens to enter into space and see for themselves what really is flying around up there. The government have been trying to keep under wraps UFOS and alien relations. I hope Virgin Galactic does not get banned. It needs to continue. RIP to the pilot.

    1. There is no such thing as advanced aliens flying around us.

      they might exist but they aren’t close and never came on earth.

  2. It is a possibility that thy are trying to prevent people to see for themselves into space.
    Why?
    1) Moon Landing was fake. you can research in this.
    2) Aliens and UFO –
    A justification that we need a super power country to protect us. The whole world must be governed by this only capable of expelling the aliens. But is there really an Alien?
    4) Energy weapons can do this.
    5) They can control the weather now.
    6) more…..

  4. Looks like it might have been a failure of a switch in the tail unfurling command system so it then extended incorrectly.
    It appears from the footage that despite it being armed this is a routine measure in the event something goes wrong, much as ejector seats are armed when planes are in flight.

    Interesting that the motor wasn’t the problem though, the flames are apparently a normal part of the throttle up/down procedure.

  5. At this point in time, the Federal Government wants to monopolize space and the extra DEBT and SPENDING it creates. I can see our federal goverment offering up a bail-out package to Space X in the near future, with restrictions and hand tieing regulations, attatched.

    Remember that a bankrupt USA is gaol #1, and Control is #2.

  6. id say henry above has hit the subject right on the head, i truly believe that the reason this virgin space craft went down was no other then it was destroyed or brought down deliberately ! there is no way what so ever the united government will sit back and watch private civilian organisations to see whats really up there ! the american government have been hiding the truth for the 130 years maybe a little longer, and theres no way their going to sit back and let the truth out until their ready to ! id bet my life on it, branstons craft was brought down deliberately and i bet he is thinking the same in the back of his head, since the day i read about him looking into sending every day folk into space as a money earner i knew something like this would happen, and it has…..
