FMBR Announcement - Challenger Saga Continues
On January 28, 1986, the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded shortly after launch. The Challenger disaster is imbedded in our national and global psyche. The country deeply felt the extent of the disaster, the deaths of the astronauts, and losses for their families.
Shortly after the time of the disaster over 30 years ago, FMBR received detailed channeled information from the recently deceased astronauts. Most of the information was recorded over multiple channeling sessions and was subsequently transcribed. We originally intended to assemble the information into a book for publication, but the person in charge of the project passed away. In the channeled messages, the astronauts wanted the story to be told so that people would understand there is life after death. However, there was concern over how the families of the astronauts would react to the channeled information, especially when they were still in mourning. As a result, the story was never told. With the passage of 30 years, FMBR feels the story should now be told.
Channeling is the imparting of information, through a medium (person), who is in communication with a spirit. Jeanne Love is a channel who lived in Adrian, Michigan. For Jeanne, spirits speak through her, using her voice to convey the message. On January 28, 1986, after the explosion, the spirit of Christa McAuliffe, the school teacher/astronaut, came through Jeanne in a very heated outcry with screaming based on the explosion and fires that were occurring. With her death having just occurred in a traumatic way, coherent discussion/channeling was not possible.
On January 29th, communication was established with several of the astronauts who spoke through Jeanne. Jeanne's husband, Tom, and a mutual friend, Sam White, were present during the channeling sessions which were held regularly for days after the incident, and then monthly, and then periodically, until January, 1988. In any single session, several astronauts would relate their messages through Jeanne. The astronauts were: Ellison S. Onizuka, S. Christa Corrigan McAuliffe, Gregory B. Jarvis, Judith A. Resnik, Michael J. Smith, Francis R. Scobee, and Ronald E. McNair.
Tom Love, a physicist, was a friend of Bob Shacklett, another physicist who was a founding member of FMBR. Bob's wife was Edie Fischer, another founding member, former Chairman and current Board Director of FMBR. Tom related the story to Bob, who, along with Bill Gough, (founder of FMBR) and other FMBR members, became very interested and agreed to join in the channeling sessions as witnesses. For some sessions, another channel, Regina Ochoa, a friend of Jeanne who lived in California, was also brought in. Some of those sessions were attended by the FMBR team (Bill and Marion Gough, Bob Shacklett, Edie Fischer, Jon Klimo, Marshall Pease, Chuck Wilhelm). There was also another channeling session which involved Seth.
We have decided to print the transcribed statements of the astronauts, as channeled by Jeanne Love and Regina Ochoa, verbatim. Credence is given to the channeled messages, since they convey how the astronauts died (not in the explosion, but by drowning). This information was kept from the public/media by NASA until many months after the incident.
In addition, the channeled messages contained information on the "Star Wars" defense mission (testing the transportation of devices for potential nuclear applications). In some of their channeled messages, the astronauts expressed that they had not been aware of that aspect of the mission and were angry when they learned of this after their death. FMBR has not attempted to corroborate any aspects of the channeling. We just want the information to be made public for historical purposes and to honor the requests of the astronauts "to let the world know there is existence after death."
There are hundreds of pages of transcripts. Multiple astronauts conveyed messages during each channeled session. For the sake of clarity, cohesion and ease of reading, the information has been organized by astronaut, sequentially by date, so that the reader can see the evolution of that astronaut's story and message. As each astronaut's story is completed, it will be posted to the website. This process will take a few months to complete. With each Newsletter, it will be announced which astronaut's story has been completed and available on the website. The first story which is available soon on the web is that of Christa McAuliffe, the first school teacher astronaut.
