Bakersfield Californian, "An unmanned spacecraft roared off
the launch pad Tuesday for a seven-month mission to photograph
the moon as part of the first U.S. lunar exploration mission
in 21 years.
"Clementine I will use sensors built by the Defense Department
for missile defense to create strip photographs of the moon
and an asteroid called Geographos.
"Data collected when Clementine I points its instruments at
the moon next month and at Geographos next summer will be
merely a by-product of a $75 million plus mission primarily
intended to test new defense technology."
UFO researchers have learned that Clementine I will also be

Stingray or Outrider, targets the optics and range-finding
equipment of enemy tanks, blinding them with laser beams to
render them useless without destroying them. American
officials deny that anti-personnel laser weapons are being
Ministry of Defense laser research has concluded that there is
a threat to British troops and John Marshall, professor of
opthalmology at St. Thomas' Hospital in London, was
commissioned to research anti-laser goggles. He concluded that
there is no total defense against laser beams.
"His alarm is shared by Major General Bengt Anderberg, Chief
of Planning and Budget in the Swedish Defense Staff, and
co-author of a book on blinding weapons. He says, "It is
