CEO of ARCA Space arrested for fraud and embezzlement

Capitalism in space: The CEO of ARCA Space was arrested in Georgia yesterday for fraud and embezzlement and extradited back to New Mexico.

ARCA is the company developing an aerospike test engine that was supposedly ready for ground tests in late September but as of yet I am unaware of any actual tests taking place.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!

 

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

 

All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

 

Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    Is this guy [ Dumitru Popescu ] an American citizen? and why does he have a Romanian passport?

    Trying to find the arrest-warrant, I came up with:

    Popescu does sorta look, like comedian Bert Kreischer–

    jburn-
    (Bert likes to drink, a lot, every day.)
    I’m only marginally knowledgeable with this crop of Comedian’s, but they do have some humorous material, so glad you liked. (a little bluer than I like, but it was his Showtime special.)

    The Guys discuss not using drugs or alcohol, for a whole month-
    Joe Rogan Experience #1036
    “Ari Shaffir, Bert Kreischer & Tom Segura, celebrate Sober-October-Is-Over.”

    totally tangential and off-thread:
    Rogan did an excellent 2 hour interview last week, with Billy Corrigan from Smashing Pumpkin’s, highly recommend.

    I hope that ARCA can survive this. Otherwise we will lose yet another opportunity to see the aerospike engine in flight.
