An amateur astronomer’s new camera

So, just this last week on Februray 18th, only six days ago, an “amateur” astronomer took a “photo” of a supernova only 80 million light years away. Man, talk about a serious camera, right?

Before I get into this thing I wanted to lay out what exactly a supernova is. A supernova is a transient astronomical event that occurs during the last stellar “evolutionary stages” of a massive star’s life, whose dramatic and catastrophic destruction is marked by one final titanic explosion. This material as it spreads out allows for its mass to be reformed with other materials to form “new” stars.

The primary article that I first read regarding this new supernova being seen in action was from the Los Angeles Times. The title of the article reads as follows; An amateur astronomer testing a new camera happens to catch a supernova as it’s being born.

When I read the title, the first thing that comes to my mind is an amateur astronomer. I have a few friends that have some pretty new telescopes at home. With that, I would consider them to be enthusiasts. You know… amateurs. The types of cameras and telescopes they tend to be able to afford and use look like the following.

The amateur astronomer that took the “photo” was Victor Buso. He used a 1-Meter Swope telescope, which also happened to be attached to the Carnegie Institution for Science, Las Campanas Observatory, in Chile. The “camera” that he used was the following “telescope”… you know, because “amateur“.

So, which is it? One article says that he took the images from the roof of his home. And another article says the images were taken in a science lab.

Now, I could sit here and go even further by talking out the logic that goes into what it actually means to “take a photo” against what actually happens within an observatory by gathering none observable “data“.  But, I won’t. And the reason why is simple.

I don’t need to.

If these people can’t keep their story straight, why believe anything  they say? If you want to believe in evolution you go right ahead. But, if you want to get technical about it, the only evolution that has even been observed doesn’t seem to be a reliable source.

This blog post is intended for my family

This blog post is intended for any of my immediate family members that may actually take the time to visit my site from time to time. With that, you may sometimes read my posts and think to yourself that I have gone off my rocker with some of the anti-space and anti-science types of posts I do most of the time. This right here is one that I genuinely ask you to go and prove me wrong on. I want to be wrong. So, for those family members of mine that might read my posts sometimes and you still think space is real… please, as I have stated… go prove me wrong. I want to be wrong on this one.

As most of the world knows, there is a car with a spacesuit strapped to it flying through space. It is currently near earth and is headed far away. Not only is this already awesome, but there is a live feed that you can visit to go watch it in action. It really is up there.

Or is it?

I have been visiting the live feed every day at least once a day during my lunch break at work for the last two weeks. So, at least once, five days a week, for two weeks, I have spent a minimum of ten minutes watching the live feed just to see what I might find.

Now, I could get into silly things like the melting point of some materials and how the vacuum of space allegedly works. But, instead I just want to point out one simple fact. And that fact is this. The clouds DO NOT change. There is only ever one continent that shows on the globe. Granted, there is one entire side of the earth that has zero land, but that is beside the point. Yes, there are a few variations of clouds that you will see. But, one of the few cloud patterns you will see always shows a small cloud cluster at the top right of the continent. Not only this, but the cloud cover that is to the right of that is always the same as well.

Just like so…

With this in mind, am I to honestly believe that this footage is real?

Clouds over my house can change in a matter of minutes. Let alone hours. And you expect me to buy into this nonsense? So, please prove to me that this LIVE FOOTAGE is real.

Now, some of you might read this and ask to yourself “why does any of this even matter”.

I will tell you why it matters. SpaceX is supposedly the leading independent commercial company of space travel. They are the first of their kind. And just this month, the Space Alliance has pressed for the advance of commercial space travel. We need to make it more affordable, and so on.

Having said all of that… if the leading pioneer of commercial space travel is lying about something as silly as the promotion propaganda for their new car, then how in the ever loving truth are we to believe any other thing that very same commercialized space agency says?

And so, go watch the live feed. And after a few days… come back to me and tell me I’m just a conspiratorial nut job. That car IS NOT in space.

All it takes to prove this is common sense and observation. Those clouds aren’t changing.

SpaceX is a liar.

Updating the swag on my truck

Untitled-1

So, I have had this truck for something like 4 or 5 years now… if not longer. And the entire time I have had it there has been this massive sticker on the back window totally obstructing my view in the rearview mirror. After all this time I had never attempted to take that sticker off because I thought it would mess up the tent. And sure enough, silly me… the tenting is on the inside.

How silly do I feel, right?

Anyway, now that I realized this after such a long time… this last weekend I took off that massive sticker of a monster-dog and replaced it with something a little more befitting, I think. Oh, and I also got a license plate cover, too.

NASA, ESA, and SpaceX wouldn’t lie, would they?

10.) Surely though, all of the above are just coincidental. We don’t have the technology to fake stuff like that.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 – Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Newton’s third law & the Progress MS-08

Today I want to take a moment to talk about the force generated by two opposing objects, which in turn, can and does result in what we call “movement”.

Formally stated, Newton’s third law is: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object.

Now, in such regard the thing to remember is this. The force that causes the ball to push back in both situations is resistance. So, the question then would be to ask what is causing the “resistance” to occur between the girl and the ball. The obvious answer here is the atmosphere. As the ball is leaving the girl’s hands, the ball is pressing against the particles of air that surround both it and the girl in the room. The more particles that exist in a given space, the denser that atmosphere is surrounding the two objects… thus, the stronger the resistance. If we removed the atmosphere, the ball would experience zero resistance. As a result the ball would not “push back”, generating friction on the girl’s feet.

Secondly, I want to raise the question of positioning. Consider this; you take away the atmospheric pressure, removing and push back the ball might exert. But also, lift the girl’s roller skates off of the floor as well. At that point you have two objects pushing against one another with zero force exerted between them while simultaneously removing the platform by which the first object might have traveled in an opposing direction. Therefore, what allows the girl to travel in regard to Newton’s third law is atmospheric pressure and a platform of travel.

Make sense? This is what brings me to the title of this blog post. Two days ago in February 15th, the Progress MS-08 docked with the international space station for it’ resupply of the station.

My question is this; what is Progress MS-08 pushing against? And, what is the Progress MS-08’s platform of travel?

You see, there is this thing called “the vacuum of space“.

A vacuum is space devoid of matter. The word stems from the Latin adjective vacuus for “vacant” or “void“. An approximation to such vacuum is a region with a gaseous pressure much less than atmospheric pressure or devoid of pressure entirely.

Now, what people like SpaceX and NASA will suggest is that rockets operate in the vacuum of space by propelling gases in one direction to create an opposite and equal force on the craft. There is no need for air (atmosphere) for those gases to push against thanks to Newton’s third law of motion. You can read that article here explaining how Newton’s third law apparently work’s in the vacuum of space.

I’m sorry, but how absurd can we honestly get? The thing that causes Newton’s third law to work is the atmospheric resistance. without said resistance, no external force would be experienced. It is honestly that simple.

Let’s ask Neil.

Oh, wait… we are forgetting one thing; atmospheric resistance. There is, after all, an atmosphere inside the international space station. At least I would hope. Wouldn’t be able to breath otherwise, right?

I rest my case. Space is fake. But hey, don’t take my word for it. I clearly am… after all, just an ignorant Christian that still believes in silly things like creation, talking snakes, and an earth yielding plant-life that existed 3 days before the sun and moon were even on the scene.

Clearly, this pre-production and post-production footage of the ISS doesn’t speak for itself either.

Anyway, rant over.
