Subject: Canada's V-2 Launch Site - Future Attraction For

Hi Everyone!

This Wednesday evening I got a chance to meet and speak with
Captain Terry Wong, a CF-18 pilot and one of six astronaut
finalists who are preparing to be launched into space from
Sarnia, Ontario, Canada (about an hour's drive north of Detroit,
Michigan) aboard a privately built V-2 rocket! Even the powerful
V-2 engine that generates over 50,000 pounds of thrust was built
to the exact specifications from the original plans found at
archives in Germany.

The manned V-2 space flight which the Germans had planned for
1945 mentioned in astronaut Gordon Cooper's book will finally
happen here in Canada six decades later. Wong not only confirmed
what Cooper wrote about this V-2 manned flight but he also told
me of British plans to send an astronaut of their own into space
with a captured V-2 rocket after the end of WWII.

Although Cooper is already on record about his personal UFO
sightings and views, if the other sources mentioned in his book
are also accurate about UFOs and UFO technology by us, then
aerospace history, especially German achievements leading up to
and including WWII, will need to be rewritten in light of these

Since the Canadian built V-2 rocket (known as the Canadian
Arrow) is based on proven rocket technology (thousands of these
large rockets were built and successfully launched by the
Germans in the 1940s), their long term goal is to train private
astronauts at the expanded space center in London, Ontario
(about a two hour drive west of Toronto) and to have them
achieve their dreams of going into space for only a few thousand

There are already plans in the works for a ballistic passenger
glider or shuttle which will land at airports anywhere in the
world. The most distant destinations will take no longer than an
hour to get there - faster than the Concorde but not much more
expensive. A heavy lift launch vehicle built from clustered V-2
rockets could be used to build a space hotel in orbit or to send
space tourists on a voyage around the Moon and back.
