In Podcast #25 of In Ice Axe We Trust, Chris and Matt discuss the main route up Telescope Peak, the highest mountain in California's Death Valley. While there are multiple routes to the top of Telescope Peak, this podcast focuses on the "standard" route - as well as some other strange spots to explore nearby in Death Valley - with the help of a veteran California hiker.
It's been called the "most unique mountaineering route in the world" and also one of the "toughest mountaineering routes in the lower 48 U.S. states" and it's no wonder - this route gains more than 11,300 feet over about 15 miles. The route starts at Shorty's Well (elevation: 262 ft. below sea level) and culminates at the summit of Telescope Peak (elevation: 11,049 ft.), which also happens to be the highest point in Death Valley. In this episode of IIAWT, Chris and Matt spend an hour talking about a recent expedition in which they attempted this very route.
This one has been in the works for awhile, but we are finally ready to air it live! This topic comes to us from a vote via the Facebook group Telescope Addicts. This Facebook group is HUGE, with over 15,000 members, and we certainly want to thank Ahmed Jaber and all the wonderful people on Telescope Addicts for voting on a topic for this specific episode.
We are going to be joined by Craig and Tammy Temple, a dynamic duo in the world of astrophotography, having been published numerous times in Astronomy Magazine, Amateur Astronomy Magazine and others. In addition to being avid astrophotographers, they have also been doing a number of equipment reviews lately as well, having been published in Astronomy Magazine and Astronomy Technology Today.
Both Craig and Tammy will be on the air with us to discuss the importance of accurate image scale in astrophotography, and how you can ensure you get the best results with your camera and equipment combinations. Prepared to learn a lot folks from these expert astrophotographers!

In the early hours of New Years Day 2013, a radio astronomer at the Allen Telescope Array in Northern California discovered a mysterious signal emanating from a star within the Ophiuchus Constellation. Contained within the signal was a Message--of human origin--foretelling the details of man's imminent demise. The Message was brought to The Starset Society, who quickly realized the importance of its immediate publication. Risking extreme danger, The Starset Society commissioned a group of musicians and scientists to assist them in spreading the knowledge to a broader audience. This group became known simply as STARSET. STARSET describes their music as cinematic rock. The band originate from Columbus, Ohio and was formed by lead singer Dustin Bates of Downplay. The band has released two singles including 'My Demons' and 'Carnivore. In the summer of 2014, the band released their debut album ‘Transmissions,’ which is now available.

Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss the triumph that is this week's historic landing of the Philae space probe on comet 67P, and the odd circumstances by which unwanted shade and low battery life might cut the mission short.
In an oddly related story, the Hubble Telescope has just celebrated its 25th anniversary.
In other news, scientists are doing creepy mind-control experiments that really work (and that perhaps aren't all that creepy -- or technically even "mind control," come to think of it.)
PLUS -- will it soon be possible for anyone to have a young mind -- no matter how old they are?
In this Notorious USA collection, Death of a Cheerleader, New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen and true crime journalist Kevin M. Sullivan write about notorious crimes in the Bluegrass State. In a scene right out of Hitchcock’s “Rear Window,” a young woman vanishes from a beach on a summer day and a neighbor views the abduction through his telescope. A newly wed disposes of his bride but doesn’t know what to do with her head. Selling tickets at a drive-in movie theater proves deadly. And a parent’s worst nightmare becomes reality – their young daughter disappears from a sleepover. DEATH OF A CHEERLEADER-Kevin M. Sullivan

Science vs. Spirituality: A Supernatural Dilemma
No thinking human being disregards or disrespects the role of science and its innumerable contributions to humankind. However, its legitimacy does not negate the beliefs of those who seek truth and understanding beyond the narrow confines established by a community with a tendency to dismiss anything that cannot be proved by its current methodology. Such is the case with skeptics who null and void all supernatural experience, as if it is not a part of the grand equation. Perhaps those who remain closed to the possibilities should consider the potential for discovery; the virtual foundation of all scientific inquiry. Its existence is not predicated upon the say-so of others. Rather than declaring paranormal activity an illusion perpetrated by the imagination on itself, or some complex mind/body interaction, consider another explanation. A suggestion: perhaps the time has arrived for the scientific-minded among us, those who frequently attempt to invalidate such experience, to consider that they might not yet grasp the notion.
Is it entirely implausible that “reality” is more fluid and malleable a concept than science allows? Case in point: The Deep Field. In 2004 NASA aimed a camera, The Hubble Space Telescope, into what they presumed to be “dark space”, a black void in the cosmos. It was not expected to yield any particular return on the effort. Instead, what was revealed through a series of photographs expanded the human consciousness in unimaginable ways, fundamentally altered by a burgeoning concept of the Universe. Scientists gasped while the rest of us stared in wide-eyed wonder.
Before you can be with the one you must become the one. And the only way you can get on the road to becoming the best you that you can be is by allowing careful thought and using the telescope of the Word of God to dissect and discover all that is in you so you can move to the final stage of this phase. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).”
HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH WORLDLY FABLES.
BUT I FEAR, LEST BY ANY MEANS , AS THE SERPENT BEGUILED EVE (SATAN) THROUGH HIS SUBTILITY, SO YOUR MINDS SHOULD BE CORRUPTED FROM THE SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRISTOS.
FOR IF HE (DEMONS, RAVENOUS WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING, FALSE TEACHERS) THAT COMETH (ANTICHRISTS) PREACHETH ANOTHER YESHUA, WHOM WE HAVE NOT PREACHED.
OR IF YE RECEIVE ANOTHER SPIRIT, (OF ANTICHRIST) WHICH YE HAVE NOT RECEIVED, OR ANOTHER GOSPEL (DOCTRINES OF DEVILS) WHICH YE HAVE NOT ACCEPTED, YE MIGHT WELL BEAR WITH HIM. (BELIEVE A LIE)
FOR SUCH ARE FALSE APOSTLES, DECEITFUL WORKERS, TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO THE APOSTLES OF CHRISTOS.
AND NO MARVEL: FOR SATAN HIMSELF IS ABLE TO TRANSFORM HIMSELF INTO AN ANGEL OF LIGHT.
(LIKE ALL LUCIFERIANS, FREEMASONS, NEW AGERS AND OTHER MODERN OCCULTS WHO WORSHIP THE THE DEVIL. AS WE SEE THE EVIDENCE IN SYMBOLS, SONG LYRICS, STAGE PROPS, AND SATANIC ATTIRE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT (MUSIC) INDUSTRY TODAY.)
THEREFORE IT IS NO GREAT THING IF HIS MINISTERS ALSO BE TRANSFORMED AS THE MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. (EXAMPLE: HOMOSEXUAL CLERGY)
WHOSE END SHALL BE ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS. (DEVIL WORSHIP, REBELLION AND DISOBERDIENCE AND FILTH)

The Lucifer Telescope: Owned and operated by Vatican astronomers, the Lucifer Telescope (also know as the Large Binocular Telescope or LBT) is located on Mt. Graham in Arizona. The Lucifer device is an Infrared detector, which was added to the LBT in order to obtain images from outer space, which are superior to those obtainable by the Hubbell Telescope. They are looking for extraterrestrial life forms, which they claim will be the saviors of mankind.
The Miracle of Fatima: Also know as the "Miracle of the Sun", Oct. 13, 1917 between 30,000 to 100,000 people witnessed "extraordinary solar activity". In an event lasting about ten minutes, three children reported seeing a paranormal vision including Jesus, Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, and St. Joseph blessing the people. The large group of people gathered at this location in a field because three young shepherd children had predicted that at high noon the "lady" who had appeared to them several times, would perform a great miracle in a filed near Fatima called Cova de Iria. The object referred to as "The Sun" was actually an opaque disc with multi-colored lights careening toward earth in a zigzag pattern, and frightening the people. Witnesses reported that their previously wet clothes had become dry, and the previously muddy ground had become dry as well.
The Book of Enoch: Is an ancient Jewish religious work ascribed to Enoch, a prophet. This book describes in detail the events outlined briefly in Genesis of the Bible whereby Fallen Angels (Sons of God) took human females (Daughters of men) and procreated with them to create the giants of the day, which terrorized the earth and hence God created the flood to destroy these "Nephilim" creatures, and God bound 90% of the fallen angels in Hell until the days of tribulation, when they will be released.
