Starwalker returns!

Starwalker returns!

A post on the official Starwalker blog has fired back at claims that the show has been cancelled.

Starwalker is very much alive and well, albeit with massive crew changes behind the scenes. The Dubai financial partner will be assuming direct financial control, and the American filming will concentrate entirely on the resources that the amazing and amazingly talented team led by John Spencer can provide for us.

The post also addressed “dramas” around the fake press release sent out by Jonathan Nolan which pretended to be from Polkadot PR CEO Dionne Taylor and the revelations by the Starwalker: It’s all a bad fraud group that Stephen Hawking is not involved with the show. The original press release claimed that Professor Hawking would have a role in the show and that UK company Red Vision would be co-producing. Two items that have since been proven to be false.

“As for the dramas to date – well, birth is always painful!”

According to the blog, the show will reveal it’s transport providers for the space flights and the two governments supporting the show by years end.

This should be interesting.

    Why, with these impressive backers such as Dubai financiers and no less than two (count them 2) national governments is the official website still on a free blogging platform?

    I mean wouldn’t it just be more professional and therefore credible to shell out the couple of hundred dollars an spring for a domain name and hosting package?

    Just sayin’

    I heard that the new site is being built by dubai slaves for less than 5% of what the average website developer would charge. That’s pretty awesome.

    Slavery. It gets shit done.

    The sentence structure and grammar in that article are fantasticalicious. Was it written by a monkey flinging poo at a keyboard and hoping for the best?

    they are aware that dubai is dead broke. right? scratch that. broke would be good news. dubai is $80 BILLION in debt at the moment and hoping like all hell abu dabi bails their ass out. spare $100 millions ain’t lying around on the sidewalk no mo, son.

    on the other hand, bolivia just started their own space agency. maybe they’d be interested. although they are trying to scratch together the additional $299 million they need to get it off the ground first.

    They Pyramids were built by aliens… who were also slaves, but it was alien know-wotz that got them done, rather than massive bullwhips of the oppressive human taskmasters.

    I like the sound of that. But that being said, i am sitting here wearing a tin-foil hat!

    Already read it, and watched the movie too. I thought that it was fascinating.

    For anyone who has not seen the movie yet, you should definitely watch it.

    Four flight providers????? Now to me this seemed to suggest the flight into space… why need four for 2 people?

    Also, there’s only one place that can send people into orbit for a price and it’s the russians.
    Commercial operators, the first won’t be able to for a few years still at best.

    And who among us can honestly say they don’t?

    Well,

    It sounds to me like since nobody believes the porkie pies about the Russians, somebody is trying the good (but broke) folks in Dubai. If that doesn’t work, I expect we’ll see an announcement that his new backer is a former Nigerian president’s son, who has a problem getting money out of the country, and has been having trouble finding anyone that will provide him with bank details so he can transfer them the money.

    Failing that, perhaps we can expect that a new partnership deal will be offered to all interested parties using a trapezoidal model (note, I didn’t say Pyramid!) so that everyone comes out ahead.

    He may also be able to raise additional funds by selling the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Better watch out for that Blues Explosion, could be the Challenger disaster all over again.

    The official Starwalker forum seems to have been tearing itself apart.
    People have quit, other folks have been banned or culled and others have had hissy fits.

    The recent posts on Parabolic Arc have been thought provoking.

    The points raised about discrimination by the producer of Starwalker is interesting, after all, it does appear to be a breach of law for a number of countries. I suppose the trick will be determining which country the offense was committed in and who has jurisdiction.

    I found something interesting which some of you may find useful. Anyone here ever heard of Hitler’s Big Lie?

    I found this part of the wikipedia article enlightening:

    His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

    Does any of this sound familiar? ;)

    Would the claims of backing from Dubai and two governments, plus four contenders for the actual rockets constitute a big enough lie for people to swallow this?

    Does it seem fitting that the behavior of the producer of this show could be explained by advice provided in Mein Kampf?
