When spaceships explode

Most American space programs in recent years have been privatized, and now, the sometimes slow bureaucracy, making stupid things like launching the Shuttle Challenger in very cold weather, when the sealing rings holders solid propellant booster unflexible, corporations aim to make a lot of money.

Last week’s rocket explosion Antares (Tuesday) and “space Spike 2” by “Virgin Galactic” (on Friday) were disasters and, considering the death of one pilot “space Spike” and serious injury of the second, tragedies.

Pluto is the last (as it is known today) planet in the Solar system. It corresponds to the Sefira da’at – Awareness. Because, as I said, the Sefira that has two categories, the Pluton must have a pair.

If the Volcano as the second incarnation of Pluto you are not satisfied with (still hypothetical planet), to illustrate the provisions of Kabbalah to offer the well-known astronomical fact that Pluto is a double planet. Pluto has a satellite, which only slightly exceeds in size (this satellite is called Charon, not to be confused with the asteroid Chiron, which we’ll talk). Another more famous example of a double-planet pair of Earth-Moon.
