On July 1, 2006 the Zetas were asked on the GodlikeProduction Live Radio show why there was such a press to get the Discovery up to the ISS. They stated this was to transport triangulation information on the position of Planet X, and that NASA would be warned that the Discovery could be taken down as the Columbia was, if such transport was done with the information not shared with the common man.
- Since the last shuttle to go up went up and down with no loss of life they have become braver and want to return to carrying information about what they observe on the ISS about the position of Planet X, triangulating up there as they are. This is information as we have stated that is not transmitted back to Earth in case it gets intercepted and decoded and thus runs round the internet as evidence of peculiar behavior by the major powers, US and Russia and the like, and the whole Planet X cover-up splits wide open like a rotten melon. So they must bring this back by shuttle and they are taking another chance. ... We and other benign aliens are trying to send a signal that they should worry about the safety of the shuttle and not attempt to bring this information back.

The next day, on July 2, a crack in the foam was discovered, and upon takeoff on July 4, several pieces fell off! Certainly a clear warning as the Columbia supposedly disintegrated due to loss of a piece of foam! Then, while in space, a fuel leak was discovered.

Crack found in fuel tank foam - could further delay launch
MSNBC July 2, 2006
- NASA managers were deciding Monday whether to call off a scheduled Fourth of July space shuttle launch after a 5-inch-long crack was found in the foam of Discovery's external fuel tank. The crack was spotted during an overnight inspection. The inspectors found a crack one-eighth of an inch deep in the foam on a bracket near the top of the external fuel tank.

- Pieces of foam came off the external fuel tank when the shuttle lifted off. NASA officials did not yet have information about its significance.
- Safe landing for space shuttle Discovery
New Scientist, July 17, 2006
- The safe landing followed 13 busy days in space for its six crew members, whose mission has left International Space Station (ISS) ready for renewed construction. ... One of three Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) in Discovery's rear compartment had a small leak - about six drops per hour. The APUs power the hydraulic pump, which controls some of the systems needed for landing, such as the rudder/speed brake and the wing flaps.
When the Discovery returned home safely a week later, the Zetas were asked if they had given up on shuttling information back on the shuttle. The answer, yes!
- Indeed, they were given so many warnings - not only all the pieces of foam falling off, but the fuel line breach. To happen on a shuttle that had been inspected and re-inspected with great care before this trip, they knew that this degree of so-called accidents was a sign that they were being warned. You're going to blow up. You're going to have fuel line explosions. You're going to overheat and that, combined with the fuel line explosion, is going to blow you up. So don't do it. Don't bring the information back on the shuttle. We have warned you. And they reverted to sending transmissions from the ISS back to Earth. This opens the possibility of these transmissions being intercepted and someone being assisted in decoding the message and it getting out on the internet.
