NASA's Dawn enters orbit of asteroid Vesta

If NASA faked the moon landings, does the agency have any credibility at all? Was the Space Shuttle program also a hoax? Is the International Space Station another one? Do not dismiss these hypotheses offhand. Check out our wider NASA research and make up your own mind about it all.

NASA's Dawn enters orbit of asteroid Vesta

Postby I@N on July 19th, 2011, 8:57 am

It's a fact (?).

NASA announced its Dawn spacecraft just entered Vesta's orbit. "The top level question that the mission addresses is the role of size and water in determining the evolution of the planets". Go check yourself at http://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov/.
I saw the first pictures as published on the main newspapers online and I have a question: why do they all look black and white and there are no stars around the asteroid? :ph34r:

Image of Vesta Captured by Dawn on July 9, 2011

July 14, 2011 - PASADENA, Calif. -- NASA's Dawn spacecraft obtained this image with its framing camera on July 9, 2011. It was taken from a distance of about 26,000 miles (41,000 kilometers) away from the protoplanet Vesta. Each pixel in the image corresponds to roughly 2.4 miles (3.8 kilometers).

And now why when hubble takes a picture of Vesta it is blurred (Hubble is supposed to have a superhigh precision and is supposed to be able to clearly see far galaxies...) and colorful?

Before fake Dawn mission made it to Vesta this is what we (myself then a believer in their scams) had grown used to about Vesta appearance. This one was purportedly taken by the Bubble Telescope.
Image

Then Dawn reached Vesta and this was one of the first ugly pictures which surprised me as I realized Vesta was not oblong but rather a ball of clay (ever since they have tried to correct this clanger,by making up images more in accordance to the "old" look)

This is a computer generated asteroid by the University of Arizona Staff (very close to NASA)

Asteroid - Cells components for the craters. Dented Cells and Fractal Cells for the surface crust. The image shown here was created in Lightwave, demonstrating that these cellular components work just fine with the DarkTree 2.5 simbionts.

This was the first logo they used in their mission page at http://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov

which they decided to change to this one later on

When I load the above image in Photoshop and raise the midtone levels I get:

I wonder what that weird mass is?

Most of the images at NASA have their EXIF data completely removed.

However when this mission started publishing photos I caught the first one with exif information in it

As you can see graphic artists at NASA (as well as ESA .. try it yourself), are quite fond of the Adobe Photoshop suite :lol:

Marc Rayman, chief engineer and mission director for Dawn, ¿another CGI character?

See how fake all these people look. See, for example, the shoes of the third person from the right.

Not to mention the Asian man on the end!

The entirety looks unnaturally constructed, that's for sure. Figures seem to be floating in their own space, shadows artificially added and people seem to be shot at different angles. Also, is it ordinary for everyone to be fitted for the same suit these days? Is this a joke? I mean, even at weddings now you frequently see a looser dress code. This certainly cannot purport to be a simple photograph; I'd be surprised if it were. This is a good lesson in very rudimentary photo fakery.

Just a friendly reminder to everyone: please remember to download all images used in your points and arguments and re-upload them to a safe space. We don't need originals vanishing. Thank you for doing that, for those that remember this is good policy for an archival site.

How come everyone has such 'veiny' hands? Even the 'overweight' guy fourth from left?

Why in NASA photos, everybody is always looking straight to the camera? That's scary. :D
