# Nothing escapes a black hole… I think.

Black holes are the blackest things in the universe. Because of their enormous, space-bending gravity, everything that falls into them is instantly ripped apart and lost. Scientists have never seen a black hole, because nothing, not even light, can escape them.

The supermassive black hole in question lies at the center of a galaxy called SDSS J1354+1327, about 800 million light-years from Earth, and it seems to be making meals of gas released by a companion galaxy. It has apparently released two burps of gas more than 100,000 years apart.

You can see them here.

In this post I want to totally set aside the fact that this is a conundrum for any believer in the ever expanding universe that resulted in a single big bang that was more than 13 billion years ago (you know, because it is either evolving or dying… you can’t have both).

Regardless, let’s move on.

Sunlight travels at the speed of light. Photons emitted from the surface of the Sun need to travel across the vacuum of space to reach our eyes. The short answer is that it takes sunlight an average of 8 minutes and 20 seconds to travel from the Sun to the Earth. According to modern day Copernican cosmology he sun is approximately 93 million miles away. With that said, it takes light a little over 8 minutes to travel the outrageous distance of 93 million miles.

So then, what is a light year?

A light year is about 5.9 trillion miles, the distance that light travels in vacuum in one Julian year (365.25 days). That would equal 31,557,600 seconds per year. If you divided the time it takes light to travel from the sun to the earth over the course of one year,  5.9 trillion miles.

Basically, we are to believe that we have the ability to view objects that are a total distance of 5.9 trillion miles x 800,000,000. These numbers are so ridiculous that the calculator breaks the answer down. That is how many miles away we are told that those burps are as they escape the inescapable.

According to science our visual acuity extends far beyond the horizon despite the fact that the horizon is only about 4 miles away from the observer. If Earth were flat, or if you were standing atop a mountain surveying a larger-than-usual patch of the planet, you could perceive bright lights hundreds of miles distant (disregarding atmospheric disturbances). On a dark night, you could even see a candle flame flickering up to 30 miles away. But don’t worry, with X-Ray Vision we can see for infinity!

The reason why this junk sounds like science fiction is because… well, it is. But hey, don’t take my word for it. Here is a wonderful simulation. All the proof you will ever need!

The funny thing here is that people don’t even stop and actually consider these things. Instead we just buy into their nonsensical numbers and unrealistic time-lapse and gasp in awe and wonder as we watch the universe expand before us in illustration form.

In short… black holes have never been seen, but when we are seeing something we have never seen we can watch something escape that can never escape while happening a hundred thousand years ago from so many miles away that the math becomes shorthand formula rather than traditional math with the aid of something out of retro comic books.

Here is the question…

When is my smart phone going to get that camera?

# NASA and the Conceptual Artist LAB

First things first, I came across this CNET article that suggests that the world’s oldest fossils are something like 3.5 million years old. And of course they take it a step further by tying in NASA and aliens, and bla… bla… bla…

The thing that I took away from that article, however, is the fact that NASA owns up to the fact that part of their budget goes to a “Conceptual Art Lab”. NASA literally has a team that gets paid to draw cartoons.

Hhhmmmm…

So, of course I looked up the lab (linked twice above), and what else can you expect other than dinky little kids art like the following.

If you don’t understand where I am going with this, then I feel sorry for you.

Space is fake and all the “images” we are shown either of or from deep space are all fake, cartoon “Conceptual Art“. And if you don’t believe me, feel free to hunt down some planetary texturing layers online (some of which I have personally traced back to NASA as supposed photos from the Hubble).

What a Joke.

The only way I know best to close out this post is with the following bit of scripture.

Matthew 24:24 – For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

# Space illustration to the rescue!!!

Well, as usually… let’s leave it to the space artists to tell us what is actually going on above us.

Or better yet, these scientific “renderings” that clearly show a spec, which explains that massive rock art above.

Same fake nonsense. Just a different day.

# Latest from the imaginations of space

The only limit to human future is our own imaginations.” – Don Pettit

Now, I realize that I have used the above little quote from Don Pettit a few times when writing blog posts about space. But, I just find it too ironic to not come back to time and time again. Above, we have Don, in reference to space exploration, explaining that the only limitations is our imagination. He doesn’t say “willpower“, or “intelligence“, or “ambition to succeed“, or “technological achievements“. No, he chose to use the word “imagination“.

The only thing keeping us from reaching further into space is our imagination. It is our “imagination” that can take us “anywhere“!

With that said… let’s take a moment to review the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA for their latest news from space.

Just for the sake of assuming there are some of you that may not understand where I am going with this post, I will spell it out for you. Every single article for the last two months posted under the JPL of NASA are supported by the “imaginations” of an artist illustrator. If you go take a look for yourself, you will more than likely find that only 1 in 10 articles on that website are data driver rather than imagination driven. And even then, if 9 out of 10 are fake… who is to say that the data isn’t also fake?

But hey, don’t take my word for it. I am clearly just an ignorant blogger and nothing more. Popular Science Magazine on the other hand… they might know what they’re talking about. These guys admit that the best jobs in science belong to the people that get paid to have an imagination by turning raw data into art.

That is all that space is, people… an artist’s imagination. And people like Don Pettit know this.

Space is fake.

# New in the realm of Fake Space Exploration

So, I decided to take a quick look at what new topics are being ramped up in the space community today just for the heck of it. And as always there is a lot going on. Something new is always being invented, proposed, or funded.

Just for starters, we have the Hubble spotting a comet. Then there is the unveiling of a Mars Space Station. Not to mention the proposal for a Pluto booster Lander. I think my favorite one however has to be the idea that Russia and America plan to build a station in orbit around the moon.

Lockheed Martin unveils Mars space station and surface Lander (This is a drawing)

Space visionaries boost Pluto lander (This is a drawing)

NASA teams up with Russia for new station near the moon. (This is a drawing)

I find it funny how so many of us take the time to defend the idea of space exploration as if it were some truly real thing that could ever actually be possible. Space is fake and the only thing you need to do to realize this truth is to open your eyes and take an honest look. The only thing that is ever put in front of the public regarding space exploration is mere cartoons, drawings, photoshop renderings, CGI, and speculative imagination. That is all it has ever been and that is all it will ever be. The date for pressing beyond the exosphere with a manned mission continues to get pushed back. And it will always get pushed back, because at the end of the day the billions of trillions of dollars spent on these types of programs only ends up producing imagination and illustration.

But don’t take my tinfoil hat wearing word for it. Just take an honest unbiased step back and genuinely look at what you are being presented. You are being spoon fed cartoons. That is all the space community ever presents. And it is all they will ever continue to present.

The farthest man has ever gone is 400 miles up. And even at that height the radiation levels are so high that it is a health risk to travel to that altitude.

But who are we kidding right? I clearly am the one who is ignorant here… And not the millions of people around the world who chose to continue to believe that one day this endless stream of CGI and photoshop illustration nonsense will become a reality.

The funny thing is, this list actually could go on and on, but I chose to just show a few examples. You should take the time to go look at Elon Musk’s city to city travel proposal. It is hilarious nonsensical CGI and everyone is buying it.

Space is fake.

# A conversation with a friend about NASA

The other day a very close friend and I were talking about re-entry for any manned mission entering the atmosphere. Anyone that reads my blog knows what my opinion is in regards to NASA. After having gone back and forth with my friend on the topic of the re-entry process of any object, manned or unmanned… I only have one question.

But, before I present my question, I want to point out that in the beginnings of NASA we are told that smashing into the atmosphere during re-entry can cause temperatures to rise above more than 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit (about 2,800 degrees Celsius). Not only does the exterior of the re-entry module reach above 5,000 degrees, but there are only a few inches of wall space between the exterior and interior of the cabin. Apparently NASA has developed a self consuming ablative heat shield that can withstand some pretty extreme temperatures (meaning that the heat experienced by the exterior of the object would not affect the temperature inside the object as it falls away from the craft).

But, don’t take my word for it… let’s ask NASA.

The initial conversation that I had with my friend was how I didn’t understand the mechanics of the heat shield they created and how it works so well. For example, in the above video the outside part is made of stainless steel. Stainless steel has a melting point of about 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, the honeycomb interior ablative heat shield in the video that is between the cabin and the stainless steel is nothing more than polymer fiberglass. Sadly enough, the melting point of this material also doesn’t even come close to being able to withstand 5,000 degrees (it has a melting point of about 2,200 degrees).

One other option that we are presented in the following video is pure silica-tiles (which again, sadly doesn’t have a melting point that reached 5,000 degrees). Although these tiles can withstand about 3,000 degrees, they were not used in the first video, but rather much later. Even still, that presents a problem.

The answer that finally clicked for me after having talked with my friend is the ceramic coating that was used. Apparently, NASA used a spray adhesive that was designed to melt away made of ceramic (which is pretty awesome considering the fact that it has a melting point of almost 6,900 degrees). If you spray enough of this stuff on and also consider the fact that re-entry time wasn’t anything more than a few minutes at most, this answer makes a lot of sense. However, the self consuming ablative heat shield in the first video was actually behind the stainless steel (notated throughout the entire first video with no mention of a ceramic outer layer). Again, the ablated material that was designed to dissipate upon re-entry in the first video was not on the outside of the stainless steel.  But, that is beside the point. Just for argument’s sake, let’s assume that the ceramic coating was applied in the first video. It very well could have been despite not being mentioned. Although I am still looking, the farthest back that I have been able to find this ceramic ablation in use by NASA only goes back as far as the early 1990’s.

This 1960’s document shows that re-entry exceeded the melting point of silica by more than 1,000 degrees. While this 1960’s document shows that the primary ablator  used during that time was 99.8% silica.

After having had this conversation with my friend and totally setting aside the conflicts that arise with re-entry (which was a lot of fun, because it made me evaluate and think, which is something I enjoy to do)… all it did was cause me to ask a new question.

Let’s assume that the stance my friend holds is the correct one.

With that, here is the question…

What happened to re-entry exceeding temperatures of 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit (about 2,800 degrees Celsius and above)?

I guess they realized that such a temperature was a little too outlandish, so they dropped it down a bit. Who knows… it’s probably just me being ignorant. Good ol’ Nye or Tyson can probably solve it for us.

I am not claiming to have answers. I am presenting questions.

# Proof that this is all one big Joke @NASA

When you listen to this guy in the video, please note what he is talking about. According to NASA they can use a smart-phone on the ground to control an orbital object on the ISS via Wi-Fi.

You have got to be freaking kidding me. How in the world are people buying into this nonsense?

Please note that, according to NASA, the ISS is nearly 200 miles away traveling at almost 50 miles a second, 18,000 miles per hour, orbiting every 2 hours. How in the ever loving truth are we sending a WiFi signal 200 miles away, let alone not losing signal the moment it gets there? Every thirty minutes or so the ISS would be on the back side of the earth opposite of ground control. I had to look into the technology for myself. And lo-and-behold, NASA took it down.

I wonder why. Maybe, because… for once they realize they are claiming something absolutely absurd.

What the heck, people… What the heck. This is so ridiculous.
