Protecting the World from Orbit

The United States government has been accused for years of running secret operations and hiding super technology. In this instance, those rumors are true. A reliable source within NASA has leaked information concerning plans underway to build a super defense space station. NASA has secretly been working on this station for five years and it is partially complete. Insiders admitted that, barring any major set-backs, it will be in orbit and operational within three years. Several NATO nations have voiced strong opposition. They are demanding that the United States abandon construction of such a large and powerful instrument of destruction. NASA officially refused to comment, but the president was quoted as saying, "Tough nougies."

Unpopular Science interviewed the head of the D.S. Station Project and the guiding force behind it since its inception, D. V. Ader. Ader was quite willing to speak to us. He gave us a tour of the facility and provided us with computer generated images of what the station will look like once it is complete. He told us that since the information was already out there, he wasn't compromising any secrets by sharing with us. We asked him about his feelings on the world-wide opposition to the project.

"I hope the people of the world will see this for what it truly is, an opportunity for us to help more nations and create an atmosphere of security. People will feel safer, more at ease when they know they are being protected twenty-four hours a day."

We also talked about the design of the station itself. Ader has spent almost ten years working on the plans, but he confided to us that he still thought the D. S. Station was, for all its strength, not an aesthetically-pleasing structure. He would've liked to have polished the design more, but he said that NASA didn't want to take the extra time. Ader said, "I suppose its current appearance will have to do. Although I do think it would look much better without the rings." Darth VaderDirector of the D.S. Station Project, D. V. Ader.
