China’s First Space Station Is Dying

Well, it’s official. This junk is legit. But, don’t take my word for it. CNN covered it for us. Regardless of what they had to say I want to point out just a few simple little things.

Number one: they lost contact with this thing in 2016

And yet, magically… just one day before it is supposed to crash they lock on to it with such precision that they capture its re-entry on camera?

yep

Number two: the graphics are so good, it has to be real.

The graphics are so good, they didn’t even bother adding solar panels to this thing. It’s pretty much the most majestic thing I’ve ever seen.

Number three: climate change – global warming advocates need not apply.

Rocket Launches Damage Ozone Layer, Study Says. Plumes from rocket launches could be the world’s next worrisome emissions, according to a new study that says solid-fuel rockets damage the ozone layer, allowing more harmful solar rays to reach Earth.

Now, when I was a kid the ozone layer was a pretty heavy topic. It was a big factor in the “climate debate“.

With that said, I have a questions regarding this third thing. Why aren’t any of these radical eco-friendly protesters attacking NASA, ESA, or SpaceX? Seems like they would be a relatively large player in the current scheme of things, if you ask me.

Then again, it could just be a scheme.

You’re going to march against Trump, but not against the people that are physically punching holes in the very thing that keeps radiation out?

Seems legit, people. Seems legit.

In conclusion, space is real. I know this because of three things. One, we conveniently find what we can’t find when it’s convenient (if that makes sense). Two, reenactments are very convincing. And three, what Trump inks with a pin is destroying out oxygen… not the giant quarterly hole punch NASA and its sister companies make on the regular.

Whatever… rant over.

Reaching milestones at the shop

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.

Questionable footage is always unreliable

I was recently talking with a friend of mine that still believes that SpaceX is real, and showed him some questionable footage that was clearly CGI. My friend’s rebuttal to the footage I presented was that it was from an unreliable source. With that, I couldn’t help but go back to SpaceX’s own footage from 2013. You honestly expect me to look at this nonsense and believe that is anything but CGI?

The thing that I find hilarious about this isn’t the fact that the video is blatantly CGI from the horses mouth… but instead the comments you will find. Here are just a few of them.

  • It’s weird how something about the Grasshopper videos seems really CG.  I guess our eyes aren’t used to seeing scifie stuff in real life?
  • Its so amazing that it look fake.
  • Beautiful! What an amazing piece of video! Hats off to SpaceX and the videographer!
  • This is the beginning of history.

And so, to my friend that stepped up and noted that my third part video footage of SpaceX could have been clearly faked, because it was obviously CGI, I call shenanigans. Because, this footage is after all from the horse’s mouth.

But hey, they clearly can’t fake stuff like that, right?

I’m sorry, but SpaceX was CGI in 2013 and they are still CGI in 2018. It’s just that simple.

 

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.
