Slight of hand at its finest; SpaceX… again

Now, obviously I am several days behind on posting this seeing as to how this particular SpaceX launch was three days ago. I have just been a bit busy I guess. That doesn’t mean I didn’t watch it live though. And yes, I have a few comments to make regarding this footage. Keep in mind this is the condensed version. The Live version was much longer and a little more detailed.

#1.) The rocket starts returning to the earth at a whopping 20 miles high and the camera cuts just before it becomes too obvious.

#2.) Assuming they did manage to make it into space despite logical observation number one, the earth is convex at more than 100 miles of altitude.

#3.) The dreaded camera cut. You got to love it. Honestly, SpaceX wouldn’t even be the same without it.

What a joke. This is what you would call slight of hand in my book. I think Nixon put it best when he said the following.

“The American people don’t believe anything unless they see it on television.”Richard M. Nixon, U.S. President  

Space is fake. Get over it.

When you can’t have a monopoly, you create a competitor

Let’s totally set aside the fact that two of the three top stories are cartoons and let’s take a look at SpaceX Plans and congress.

WASHINGTON —  SpaceX and OneWeb say they are within months of launching the first satellites in their competing megaconstellations of broadband smallsats designed to bring internet to every corner of the globe.

Because, you know… a sphere has corners.

But hey, that is beside the point. We are trying to get internet to the entire world here, people. You know, because Google Loon doesn’t already exist. Someone please explain to me how a modem is supposed to connect to a miniature SAT traveling more than 17,000 miles per hour outside of the atmosphere, when a Satellite dish can’t even maintain signal with a stationary satellite on a rainy day?

Oh wait, I know…

It’s called fiber optic cable that is currently strung all across the ocean floor. That’s probably what SpaceX means when they say “competitive web provider“.

NASA – Not Always Scientifically Accurate

Geostationaryjava3D (1)Satellite Internet access is Internet access provided through communications satellites. Modern consumer grade satellite Internet service is typically provided to individual users through geostationary satellites that can offer relatively high data speeds, with newer satellites using K-band to achieve downstream data speeds up to 50 Mbps. A geostationary orbit, geostationary Earth orbit or geosynchronous equatorial orbit (GEO) is a circular orbit 35,786 kilometres (22,236 miles) above the Earth’s equator and following the direction of the Earth’s rotation. An object in such an orbit has an orbital period equal to the Earth’s rotational period (one sidereal day) and thus appears motionless, at a fixed position in the sky, to ground observers.

A Van Allen radiation belt is a zone of energetic charged particles, most of which originate from the solar wind that is captured by and held around a planet by that planet’s magnetic field. The Earth has two such belts and sometimes others may be temporarily created. The discovery of the belts is credited to James Van Allen, and as a result the Earth’s belts are known as the Van Allen belts. Earth’s two main belts extend from an altitude of about 500 to 58,000 kilometers (300 to 36,000 miles) above the surface in which region radiation levels vary. Most of the particles that form the belts are thought to come from solar wind and other particles by cosmic rays. By trapping the solar wind, the magnetic field deflects those energetic particles and protects the Earth’s atmosphere from destruction.

Quote from the Above Video: “Radiation like this could harm the guidance systems, on-board computers, or other electronics on Orion“.

Now, with that in mind… here we are at the end of 2017 and the Orion capsule has still not been sent up to take its readings while also testing to see what affects the radiation will have on the electronics of the craft. With that, Syncom 2 was the first geosynchronous communications satellite. The satellite was launched by NASA on July 26, 1963 with the Delta B #20 launch vehicle from Cape Canaveral.

Here is my questionHow are we to believe that there are thirty so called geosynchronous communications satellites currently in deep orbit parked right smack dab in the middle of the Van Allen Radiation Belt, and still… in 2017 we have no readings on the affects of this radiation on guidance systems or the computers and electronic components of a man made object?

This makes absolutely no sense.

We have supposedly had man made computer based guidance system electronics in geosynchronous orbit for almost 55 years, and here we have NASA admitting they still don’t know what to expect? Those geosynchronous communications satellites have essentially been parked up there in the thick of that radiation for more than 5 decades and NASA is just now deciding to send up Orion in 2018 to take readings that we clearly should already have.

Hhmmmm…

Seems legit.

SpaceX to the rescue!!!

Yesterday SpaceX launched a Russian Cargo craft which plans to dock with the ISS within two days after launch. The Progress carried almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies for the Expedition 53 crew on the station. The spacecraft is scheduled to make a quick, two-orbit journey to the station.

Now, I’m no expert… but seriously, if anyone watches this video and still thinks it is real… wow, just wow.

But, for those of you that don’t feel the need to watch a 10 minute video of the most recent SpaceX launch, here are some quick little screen captured snippets from that video. It’s pretty much the most majestic thing I have ever seen.

unnamed

Let’s totally disregard the fact that the live footage clearly shows the rocket only reaching an altitude of about 20 miles maximum before changing its trajectory from an upward assent to a horizontal then downward one before the feed changes to that pure gold CGI.

Wow… I am literally at a loss for words here. This has got to be the most realistic thing I have ever seen (of course only if it’s 1998 and you are playing a PlayStation One, of course).

ganes

How in the mess is anyone buying this junk? SpaceX needs to hire some of the guys that have done more recent work for things like the PS4.

I think it might be a good move… just saying.

SpaceX: more like FakeX

I’m sorry, but SpaceX is a joke.

Yesterday evening and into the night they launched yet again another SAT into geostationary orbit. Good for them. I have watched every single launch. And when I have had the opportunity I have watched them live. And sadly, I am surprised to see that more people are not realizing that it is all a bunch of nonsense. This company is using sleight of hand to trick people into thinking they are doing something they are not. Every single launch they have done shows the exact same type of footage to the letter. When the reusable capsule rocket ascends for landing the camera goes out (either in total or just long enough to disrupt the landing sequence). When the SAT is released and opens up it is only shown for a split second with an excited crowd cheering in the audio background noise. The shot is just long enough that you don’t see anything at all.

It is all a joke.

And if you think I am just full of it, look at the following launch images from SpaceX and ask yourself, do you honestly see these images and think to yourself that these rockets left the atmosphere?

I think not. They launch up, reach roughly 20 miles high and then careen downward (not up and away, but rather; around and down). If you look at those shots and can honestly tell yourself that these rockets reached beyond the exosphere then you are in denial. That arch is literally taking place in the stratosphere, people.

And all I can say to that is this;

2 Peter 3:2-7That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

But, don’t take my word for it. Just ask good ol’ Bill what he thinks.
