Well, the store officially reached 1,000 reviews. Pretty awesome stuff if you ask me. The store has come a long way since it first got started.

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.
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.
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?
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.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 – Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
First off, the article is titled OSIRIS-REx tested its cameras by taking a gorgeous photo of its home planet. So, the craft took a photograph… I think. Or wait, an “image“. Which is it? The powers that be either took a photo or it is what NASA and its sister companies love to call “a composite“.
Acording to the article, OSIRIS-REx launched in September 2016, using Earth as a slingshot the following year for help redirecting its path to Bennu. During the maneuver, it turned its mid-range scientific camera MapCam towards the Earth, snapping some pics of our planet in space.
But, rather than point out the obvious fact that the above photos are in all actuality, not photos at all, I want to address something else that I have addressed in the past. But first, I find it ironic that both NASA, its sister companies, and those who post on their content are double tongued. Either these “images” are actual photos or they aren’t. It’s that simple.
The above image is a composite of photographs captured on October 2, 2017. The images were taken using three color filters, then the contrast on the moon was stretched to make it brighter and more visible.
In short, we are told “photograph” while they simultaneously imply tampering to a large degree. By adjusting the exposure on the “photo“, you can see the light directive given to the earthen object. This is unnatural as we all know that light bends toward the observer in some cases as well as spreading outward the longer the distace (in this case we are led to believe the observer is a man made object 3,180,000 miles from home with the ability to be controlled and manipulated wireless from that great of a distance with nothing but the empty vacuum of space as its medium for transiting a signal).
One, why doesn’t the light bend toward the camera? Two, if it is multiple images overlaying one another, how are the clouds on earth from that great of a distance so clearly defined? Three, what in the world are the variations of black-static-grey strips if not a tacky slack photoshop job?
Now, with all of that aside I want to point out the real reason why I wanted to address this subject specifically. OSIRIS-Rex means – Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, and Security-Regolith Explorer. In short, I find it funny that the first word is “origins” explorer.
With that, we are going to leave it to NASA (Hebrew meaning – deceiver) with finding our origins with the help of Osiris as he flies through space to reach Bennu, the bird.
Osiris is the Egyptian Lord of the Underworld and Judge of the Dead, brother-husband to Isis, and one of the most important gods of ancient Egypt. The name `Osiris‘ is the Latinized form of the Egyptian Usir which is interpreted as ‘powerful’ or ‘mighty‘.
Bennu on the other hand was a self-created being said to have played a role in the creation of the world. It was said to be the ba of Ra and enabled the creative actions of Atum. It was said to have flown over the waters of Nun that existed before creation, landing on a rock and issuing a call that determined the nature of creation.
But hey… science is clearly unbiased when it comes to religious or spiritual connotations… right?
Genesis 1: 1-2 – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Don’t be fooled. Space isn’t a series of photos. It is a series of artists using programs like photoshop to push their agenda (and in this case it happens to be that of Pagan worship).
2 Timothy 4:4 – And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
If you want to believe in their nonsensical photoshop and the promotion of Pegan gods, you go right ahead.
Space is fake.
I had a thought while staring into the abyss motionless under the warm running water of my shower just now, sparking this random and unplanned blog post.
Here we go…
When many of us grew up, there were nine planets in the solar system. It was like a fixed point in our brains. As kids, memorizing this list was an early right of passage of nerd pride: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. In August 2006 however the International Astronomical Union (IAU) downgraded the status of Pluto to that of “dwarf planet“. This means that from now on only the rocky worlds of the inner Solar System and the gas giants of the outer system would be designated as actual planets. With that in mind, according to the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric evolutionary dogma there are only 8 planets in our solar system.
The reason Pluto is not consider a planet is simple. It has not yet cleared the neighborhood of its orbit in space. Because it does not follow this rule, Pluto is no longer considered a planet.
In short, Pluto is not a planet in our solar system. There are only 8 planets.
Now, since we exist on one of these so called planets there are only 7 observable planets for us to see in the night sky.
Assuming I haven’t lost anyone yet, here is the part where I might. But whatever, I am diving into it anyway.
From my reading of the Bible I have concluded that there is a distinct correlation between the stars and the angels of heaven. For example, in Genesis 2:1 we find that God created the heaven and earth and all the “hosts” of them. And with that, there are countless scriptures where the phrase “the hosts of heaven” is referring to angels and stars as one. On top of this we have epic verses like the following one that clearly suggest that stars, can, will, and have… fallen to the earth, and that those stars are in fact angels.
Revelation 9:1 – And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit (and to the star was given a key).
I could load this blog post down with scriptures to back this view, but rather than doing that I want to keep it short by getting to the point regarding the planets of our solar system specifically, from a biblical perspective.
Based on the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric evolutionary dogma there are only 7 observable planets. What makes us know that they are planets is their orbit. Every planet in our solar system except for Venus and Uranus rotates counter-clockwise on their axis as seen from above the North Pole; that is to say, from west to east. West to east however is the official direction in which “all the planets” orbit the sun.
In short, all of the planets travel across our night sky from west to east. With that said, for an observer on the earth, all celestial objects move from east to west with these 7 objects being an exception to the rule (over time traveling in the opposing direction).
Now… for the epiphany I had in the shower.
In ancient times there was what is called the gods of the five wandering stars. They were named Phainon (planet Saturn), Phaethon (planet Jupiter), Pyroeis (planet Mars), Eosphoros (planet Venus) and Stilbon (planet Mercury). In ancient Greek they were depicted as youths diving into the earth, something that matches exactly with several biblical depictions of stars either falling or being cast to the earth.
The two remaining planets Uranus and Neptune are invisible to the naked eyes which is why they were not known as the 7 wondering stars.
What I am getting at is the simple fact that the bible is not the only place where the stars are attributed as being living beings with the capability of falling to the earth while at the same time being garnished by the Greeks with the phrase “wondering stars”.
With all of that laid out here is the biblical point I am trying to make.
Jude 1:5-13 – And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
So here is my question…
If the stars are in fact not beings, but just big balls of gas, dust, and rock… why does the bible suggest that these wondering stars have stepped out of their intended habitation and in turn will be punished with both everlasting chains and eternal darkness for stepping out of line?
Why would God take the time to punish an inanimate rock?
Plutonium–238 is a radioactive isotope of plutonium that has a half-life of 87.7 years. Plutonium–238 is a very powerful alpha emitter. This makes the plutonium–238 isotope suitable for usage in radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTGs) and radioisotope heater units. The density of plutonium–238 is 19.329 g/cm³.
And according to this space article over on the Sunday Express, we are running out of this epic material. NASA and all of her sister companies need this epic space-kryptonite in order to travel space, or whatever.
Oh me, oh my… What ever shall we do?
No more plutonium-238, no more space illustrations. As a matter of fact, if we illustrate one fast enough, I bet we could find an exo-planet within our reach that is made of this stuff!
What do you think?
Thank God for NASA illustrators. I wasn’t sure what were going to do.
So, basically there is a lot of hype right now over the US going back to the moon under the Trump administration (or at least gearing up for it). One the many places this topic is catching buzz is on NPR, of course. And, like the exciting adult that I am I had to read the NPR article about this overly dramatized topic that seems to surface every few years.
If any president is going to make it happen, surely Trump will get us back to the moon.
But, rather than focus on the hype of returning to the moon, I found my focus on something that was merely brushed over in the NPR article (highlighted in red above).
The idea of redirecting an object so that it orbits the moon received negative reviews from the space community?
I wonder why…
It wouldn’t happen to be the fact that it was an impossible goal (not that it would have been hard to achieve, but rather unmanageable within the scope of actual reality).
With that, I propose something to the scientists of this world that still cling to the Copernican Principle as an absolute truth. If gravity, relativity, and velocity generate an orbit according to the masses of two opposing objects in the vacuum of space as we are led to believe… then let’s send out an object to orbit the moon large enough to see with the unaided eye, thus… proving gravity, and much of the content that is currently taught as truth today (all be it still just speculative theory).
And that, my friends, is why this asteroid moon orbit mission received negative reviews from the space community. Because, they would essentially have to prove something that today is still mere speculative theory founded on the backs of only a handful of men.
If an orbit truly can occur, and space really is what we are led to believe via artist rendering after artist rendering, then prove it by sending out something to orbit the moon that the entire world can see from their back porch.
You want to inspire space exploration like Trump is claiming to desire, then that would be the way to do it.
But, who are we kidding… I am the ignorant one who doesn’t think space is real, remember. Leave the real proof to artist illustrators like NASA employee R. Hurt (now there is some real proof. Talk about art that inspires a generation to explore; those brush strokes… that photoshop highlight… Mmmmhhhh).
What a joke. Space is fake.
And if you don’t believe me, just scroll back up and take a good hard look at Trump and that astronaut. Literally take a long hard look at it.
“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.
