Philae is a robotic European Space Agency lander that accompanies the Rosetta spacecraft. It is designed to land on 4-km wide comet named 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. The lander is expected to achieve the first controlled touchdown on a comet nucleus. Reportedly achieved this today, see: Philae spacecraft makes historic landing on comet suggesting this comet ride will study what it’s like to get closer to the Sun. But is there more to this story?
Philae is an is an island in Lake Nasser, Egypt, is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site under the Official name: Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae. According to Wikipedia post on Philae “The most ancient were the remains of a temple for Isis built in the reign of Nectanebo I during 380-362 BC, was approached from the river through a double colonnade. Nekhtnebef is his nomen and he became the founding pharaoh of the thirtieth and last dynasty of native rulers when he deposed and killed Nefaarud II. Isis was the goddess to whom the initial buildings were dedicated. See Gerhart Haeny’s ‘A Short Architectural History of Philae’ (BIFAO 1985) and numerous other articles which incontrovertibly identify Isis (not Hathor) as the primary goddess of the sacred isle.”
Is this why the robotic lander was named Philae? An ancient monument to Isis. Other things named ISIS to consider are the name of new age book by H. P. Blavatsky ISIS UNVEILED: A Master-Key to the Mysteries of Ancient and Modern Science and Theology. Highlighted on theosociety.org as Blavatsky’s first major work on theosophy, examining religion and science in the light of Western and Oriental ancient wisdom and occult and spiritualistic phenomena. Or as a possible potential name for the mossad the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service ISIS. Or as the name of a demonically possessed militia terrorizing Kurdistan and the Levant. So while the New World Order is bombing Northern Iraq people can be excited about the peaceful advances of science landing on a comet that’ll drop by in 6.5 years.
The name of the mission is Rosetta. According to the European Space Agency’s website unprecedented mission of cometary exploration is named after the famous ‘Rosetta Stone’. This slab of volcanic basalt discovered in 1799 by french soldiers was the key to unravelling the civilization of ancient Egypt. “Just as the Rosetta Stone provided the key to an ancient civilisation, so ESA’s Rosetta spacecraft will unlock the mysteries of the oldest building blocks of our Solar System – the comets. As the worthy successor of Champollion and Young, Rosetta will allow scientists to look back 4600 million years to an epoch when no planets existed and only a vast swarm of asteroids and comets surrounded the Sun.”
This really has put Europe at the frontline of space research, all thanks to an expression of European ambition and of course thanks to political willingness that will invest in breakthrough basic science missions and also to be prepared to take risks, risks with missions that are really technologically speaking at the edge of what you can expect and Rosetta, and I want to express that, is really the best example of that.”
Coincidentally, the top movie of this week is an advancement in science epic Interstellar, with an estimated budget of $165M finishing second in the opening weekend box office with $47.51M, centres around a plot of humans first mission to deepspace via a blackhole with the backdrop of an environmental disaster threatening the Earth and people even researching the moon landing hoax. With some interdimensional twists around time travel and conjuring ghosts it’s an interesting release during this time of outer space intrigue and new age agenda.
Cooper: You don’t believe we went to the Moon?
Ms. Kelly: I believe it was a brilliant piece of propaganda, that the Soviets bankrupted themselves pouring resources into rockets and other useless machines…
Cooper: Useless machines?
