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.

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?

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.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 – Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

On this day in space – Feb. 4, 1995: STS-63 Launches ‘Orbital Debris Calibration Sphere

On this day is space, Feb. 4th, the STS-63 launched an orbital satellite to help calculate the level of space debris floating around in space in orbit around earth. Over the course of many years a lot of trash has occurred out there.

Space_debris_GIF.gif

So… the STS-63 is definitely a great tool to have, don’t you think? It is with the aid of space debris like the STS-63 mission that we have been able to asses all the other debris as it builds up over the years.

Let’s just say… according to a “reliable source“, the space junk has built up pretty rapidly since NASA’s inception in 1958.

So… here is the question: why don’t we actually ever seen any of this so called debris? Look long and hard. I promise you, you won’t find it.

But hey… what do I know, right? I clearly am ignorant. Don’t let the STS-63 mission full you. They are finding satellite based space junk all over the place!

NASA and the ESA probably don’t release the “actual” footage of the space junk, because they can’t afford to scare the general public. Last thing we need is an outbreak of fear in the world over space giants floating around out there!

Seems legit NASA!

Record breaking Space Walk – in space?

Now, I could take the time to point out all of the stuff I noticed in this video (which was released yesterday) with the aid of still shots from the video. This video is however pretty short. With that, I am going to just post the video with the following comments prior to the video itself. The video is only 7 minutes long.

So, here we go… in order of the content as it appears in the video by minute mark.

0:43 – cartoons are legit.

1:04 – why would you allow an obstruction in front of the video?

1:43 – literally in front of a green screen.

1:55 – where did the second astronaut come from? He wasn’t there 20 seconds go.

2:14 – leg kicks for show… isn’t space fun (making the green screen affect even more obvious)?

3:05 – the foreground panels are layered over onto the scene.

4:13 – again the foreground is a separate layer.

4:36/4:54 – watch the mirror on his arm. The horizon of the earth changes from a left position to a right sided one. Why would the earth be in his mirror at all? It is to his hard left, not above him.

5:08 – I find it ironic that the camera glitches out right as the earth comes into view.

5:20/5:30 – the distortion of the earth from vertical to concave, and then convex before become a straight line again is a great reason to have the camera mess up. Timing is everything.

5:43/6:23 – shadows all over the jettison along with a flexing earth as seen in my previous comment.

6:24/6:42 – zero shadows on the jettison and water bubbles in space?

6:56 – let’s end the video by reminding everyone that space is real while having the shadow on the jettison reappear for our viewing pleasure.

Enjoy!

Augmented reality then and now

So… Google is finally bringing augmented reality functionality to Chrome for those of you that seem to think something like that is useful. And, of course… you can’t help but see the irony in the fact that they chose (of all things) an astronaut for public demonstration.

That one time Don Pettit’s coffee came out of the bag on the ISS.

Seems legit… green screen?

I don’t know about you, but just like with most things, it seems to me like the powers that be have had access to this sort of thing for while now. And it is just now reaching the general public. With that said, there is coming a day when the deception will be so strong that no one, and I mean no one… will be able to tell the difference.

2 Thessalonians 2:7-12For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wondersAnd 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.

It’s coming, people.

Internalization ponderings of the day

I have an honest question.

As we all know and can observe, both meteors and comets take place in the sky all the time. They tend to leave lasting impressions similar to the following photos.

So, here is the question…

Wouldn’t it stand to reason, that “if” we are in fact traveling through space in 5 alternate directions simultaneously (axial rotation, orbit around the sun, sun around the galaxy, galaxy through space, and axial tilt), wouldn’t we observe these types of events from more than just one direction of observation?

To clarify what I am asking, let me reword it a little better. Meteors and comets should be traveling in the vacuum of space in all sorts of directions. With that said, why is it that we never observe these objects coming up from the horizon line rather than down toward it?

Here is a visualization of what I am asking. From the line of sight to the horizon for the observer, these objects only ever appear to be traveling down. Wouldn’t they just as frequently be observed going up as well?

question

Why is this never observed?

Seems like a common sense observation, and yet none of the photos taken ever show these objects going in any other direction than down or in an easterly-westerly direction. Never from bottom to top.

Hmmm….

Seems legit.

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.

face

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!

xray-vision

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?
