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.

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

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”.

basketball

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.

Progress-MS08-Docking-2-800x445

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.

Falcon Heavy Post Launch Press Conference

Elon Musk – “We didn’t really test any of those materials for space hardened… or whatever, you know. It just has the same seats like a normal car has. It is literally just a normal car in space. Which, I kind of like the absurdity of that. And, if you look closely on the dash board there is a tiny Hot Wheels roadster with a tiny spaceman. We did it, because… like that would be cool, too. It’s kind of silly and fun. I’m trippin’ balls here. I’m trippin’ balls.

Click here to watch the entire post launch conference. The above quote content was pulled from the 41 minute mark.

Modern cars are made from a variety of materials. The materials chosen depend a lot on their cost, repairability, and durability. Fuel efficiency is just one of many variables on the minds of car designers. The typical family sedan these days is usually made from steel body panels with plastic front and rear fascias. Car exterior parts are today made of complex combinations of materials ranging from metal tailored blanks to sheet molded compounds (SMC) and glass fiber reinforced plastics (GFRP) to hybrid plastics.

The temperature that caused the exterior of that car in London to melt was a whopping 204 degrees Fahrenheit. 

starman-tesla-in-space-towards-mars

And so, how is it that this Tesla in space is not melting? It is… after all… “literally just a normal car in space”. The temperature in and beyond the exosphere varies greatly and can range from 0 to over 1,700 degrees Celsius and above. That is more than 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit, people. That steering wheel has rubber on it. Rubber melts at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Honestly, I could sit here and point out all of the components of the vehicle and talk about their ability to withstand extreme environments, but instead… I want to point at something else.

car.png

Die-cast Hot Wheels are made from  metal and plastic. The metal commonly used is ZAMAC (or Mazak), which is an alloy of zinc and aluminium. The melting point of Zink is 787 degrees Fahrenheit. While the melting point of aluminum is 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. As Elon Musk points out in the press conference, there is no atmospheric exclusion, preventing the heat from being diluted prior to making contact with the car and any other objects on or around the car… such as the spaceman, cameras, and even the primarily plastic and zink-alloy toy on the dash.

Now, let’s just set aside the obvious fact that this car should already be falling apart… and consider the even more obvious. I can’t help but ask a few questions.

Why don’t we see more than 6 decades of space debris?

Where are all of the satellites?

Where is the ISS?

Why don’t we ever see the moon?

Where are the stars?

Why does one entire half of the earth at times appear to not contain any land?

When is the ISS going to give us a shot of the car?

Why hasn’t the ISS commented on this at all?

Honestly, I could go on and on… But hey, what do you want to bet… this car is more than likely in fact still sitting inside of this tube, and all they did was turn on the hologram. Because, if that was in fact the shell of the rocket experiencing separation, why didn’t the camera, car, foreground, and or background jolt upon separation? That would have been a pretty hefty jarring… causing the craft to alter it’s motion in space. We should have seen some movement, somewhere. It’s almost as if the background just go “turned on“.

I don’t know… what do you think?

starman+spacex+elon+musk

Honestly though, I clearly am the ignorant one. Let’s just ask the experts what they think about all of this. I’m sure Elon Musk as a few comments.

Elon Musk – “I think it looks so ridiculous and impossible. You can tell it is real because it looks so fake, honestly. We’d have way better CGI if it was fake. I kind of like the absurdity.”

Lastly, people might roll their eyes at me and ask why this type of stuff even matters. Well, if you go watch the live feed, take a minute and watch the chat room. It is slammed with activity. And, the primary theme that I have seen is that God does not exist, and… smoking pot and taking dumps is awesome!

Degradation, people… degradation.

Why think, when we can let the smart people do our thinking for us. I’m trippin’ balls and my hot pocket is getting cold.

It breaks my heart. Common sense tells us that this is not real.
