OG-MA 96 -- THE CANIS MINOR MISSION




The DOG-MA Spaceship (Demi-Orbit-Gondola Mission Astrolab) was built in 1995 and is equipped with the most advanced technology in the field of space research. DOG-MA is the result of a unique cooperation of several space authorities of various countries, such as NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), Purdue - NSCORT on Controlled Ecological Life Support Systems, Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (magnetospheric research), Hiraiso Solar Terrestrial Research Center, TeSRE Institute, GMD - AI Research Department, and SETI Institute - The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.

DOG-MA is part of the Outer-Space-Transfer-Program (OST), and depending on its task and mission it is sent off to various expeditions and scientific research fields. The following documentation is a record of the first DOG-MA mission which took place in November 1996.

The DOG-MA was sent off to CANIS MINOR, which is about 8.8 lightyears away from our solar system. The various scientific operations and Ether-Ethnographic-Reports of this mission offer unknown and astonishing results that nobody would have dared to think and belief until now. On board of the DOG-MA on its Canis Minor Mission were two of the most qualified astronauts: Ulf Brettschneider and Alf Laikowitz.

The Direct Online Transmission from DOG-MA to the Space Operation Center (SPOC) and to the Moltkerei Werkstatt (Cologne) via CU-SeeMe on 10th of November, 1996 was commented by two leading experts, Dr. Verena Plankton and Dr. Dr. Eugen Frauenhofer. At the same time Professor Igor Suchowski from the Russian-Ubiquitarian-Moon-Mobilization-Station (RUMMS) gave an amazing report about the Sputnik-2 mission of the 3rd of November, 1957, and asked for help and information concerning the unsolved questions of this space-flight and the whereabouts of the famous spacedog LAIKA, the first living being in space.

The worldwide response to this question, and the facts and figures in combination with a direct online conversation with Ulf Brettschneider offered an extremely surprising perspective on history of space politics, and also on the so-called "human factor" which will always - no matter how far mankind will travel, and how high its aspirations in controlling the earth and the univers may be - give the course of history and nature the astounding and unpredictable twist which separates fate from fiction.
