Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

Yes, I also know that... ;) But the epoch data just tell you where the object will be at a given time. But nothing about its attitude relative to the observer, and that's a key parameter. The official version says the ISS it's mainly a tube-shaped object with lots of solar panels attached. Those sho...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

Even more, I think that the brightness of such an irregular object, whose orientation is not easily ascertained, would be extremely hard to predict. I don't know what kind of algorithm is using heavens above, but my take is that brightness prediction would be feasible only for very simple -i.e. sphe...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

But the distance when setting over the horizon is 2.300 kms. And it should be still visible! So, can anyone one imagine spotting a 747 from 2.300 kms. away? Ok, let's concede that it could be a highly reflective object and it would be easier to see against the dark firmament, but still looks pretty...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

You generally won't see anything, except the sun and maybe the moon, right on the horizon due to atmospheric extinction. That's why heavens Above (and other sites) give 10 degrees above the horizon as the point at which it is considered observable. This is around 1440 km away and the math for the 7...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

Even more, if you have a look at a 747 flying at cruise altitude (about 12 km) you'll barely see any details, it's just a speck in the sky. Now let's put our plane in orbit at... 400 km. Would it be so visible from the ground as the purported ISS? Dear Altair, You have no idea of how much I treasur...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

About the 500 tons, it happens that the maximum takeoff weight (that is, fully loaded) of a 747-8 is 442 tons. Funnily enough, the length of both is similar: 73 m. for the ISS, 76 m. for the 747-8. So, we have to believe that such a massive object has been placed in orbit chunk by chunk and assemble...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

I am not the only member looking forward to your exposition on this "implosion" concept. On the other hand, we have to beware of distractions and of becoming space fanboys ourselves. As I have said before, you can either believe NASA is a developer of Star Trek-like supertechnology (Tesla, microwav...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

The problem with this is that we cannot ascertain what assumptions can be made. But if we assume that: - Rockets work in a vacuum - The ISS is an object orbiting Earth Then it must be re-boosted from time to time in order to compensate for orbital decay. How is this accomplished? Here is some sort o...

I think it has been mentioned in this thread or in some one related, but it seems that free expansion of gases cannot produce any work, in physical sense. There is a pretty good discussion here: https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/work-done-by-gas-in-vacuum.725702/ So, the idea is that work is don...

Re: Amateur Astronomy: What can we see?

I've checked Crow777's YT channel, and while the 'hologram moon' hypothesis is a bit too much for me, I've found an interesting point in one of the comments of the videos. Namely, the existence of tides. We've always been told that tides are caused by gravitational pull of the Moon, and, to a lesser...

Re: Mirrors on the Moon - a Hoax?

If the laser was just a centimeter wide hitting a mirror on the moon, the mirror would have to be very precisely angled back to a single receiver on earth, which would then be affected by the seasonal wobble or else it would deflect off into space missing earth or at a minimum missing the dish back...

Re: Barcelona August 17 2017

It's this one (in Spanish only): http://biblio.upmx.mx/library/index.php?title=301010

They didn't print a lot of them. I think I could scan the one I have (it's not too thick), but I'd need some time.

Also, getting something done in Spain in August is nearly impossible... everyone is on holidays. :lol: Now seriously, I've been briefly involved in politics (not in parties, rather from the NGO side at a local level) and I got a grasp of how the system works.

Re: Barcelona August 17 2017

Being a Spaniard, I feel 'entitled' to comment upon this. First of all, I've followed it only by social media and internet news. I almost don't watch TV. In all, I think it would be very difficult to fake such an action due to being a very popular and visited area in the town. But still there are ma...

Re: Hubble or Bubble?

A couple of years ago I visited the "Museo de las Artes y las Ciencias" at Valencia (Spain). One of the main attractions was an iMax film about the Hubble repair mission. This one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubble_(film) It was really impressing. But after skimming this thread, I googled for how...
