Re: Amateur Astronomy: What can we see?

Just came across these short time-lapse videos/gifs, claiming to be of geostationary satellites. Here's just one such example. https://media.giphy.com/media/xTiTnJZREDwfAZR02s/giphy.gif Seems consistent with the claims, but I know these videos could be easy to fake. It would be an easy experiment to...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

At this point, after about 18 years since the first 'brick' of the "ISS" was (allegedly) laid in space, we MUST wonder why there is NO OFFICIAL, high-definition photographic record of, for instance, its very assembly phase: the "ISS", we are told, was progressively assembled piecemeal up in space -...

Re: THE "CHATBOX"

This is a rant, nothing more, nothing less...A friend of mine posted the following article on his facebook page: http://www.anongroup.org/doctor-shot-dead/ According to the article, another holistic doctor was found dead, along with her entire family. I did find some minor hoaxy things...it was the ...

Re: Amateur Astronomy: What can we see?

In addition to the planets and the Sun of course, I've become very interested in learning what is relatively close to us. The following video suggests there are big asteroids in close orbits around the Earth. qEMathBJ_Tw I do have a concern with the video, and of course many questions. First, I've n...

Re: Stars/no stars - and other space oddities

These are approximately due West, in the direction of the setting sun. Using Stellarium, we can set the date to January 30, 2017, and time to about 8pm PST (UTC-8:00), and location to N36°43'05"/W120°57'47" to match the time/location coordinates of the video. From this we can conclude the main brig...

Re: Does Rocketry Work in the Vacuum?

With all the kinetic energy used to put the rocket and satellites into space, the rockets would most likely end up in some kind of orbit that might last a long time before they happened to get caught by the atmosphere. Yes, that statement is elementary physics, but do you have any proof that this i...

Remember, next on "The Clues Chronicle" we will be discussing this very thread and the topics covered, so please let us know what you'd like K and I to tell people. What are the most critical points, for example? What are the weakest? How can we convey this over audio? Any and all suggestions welco...

Re: Does Rocketry Work in the Vacuum?

Another funny thing about those rockets I used to play with as a teenager (I think they were called "Estes") is that they would accelerate instantly, like an explosion. I know this has already been covered in previous discussions, but I find this important to mention and/or "bump" it because I thin...

Re: Einstein and other gods of science

Just finished the latest Clues Chronicles episode on Einstein and would like to thank you for mentioning the book by Wheeler. I'm in the middle of reading it now. It's so refreshing to read scientific material that doesn't accredit all phenomena to mysterious particles. I think Einstein's paper wri...

Re: Einstein and other gods of science

Einstein was a varied and prolific writer. The lists below are some of the names of the papers Einstein has published. The list demonstrates that Einstein was somewhat varied in subject matter as an author. I often wondered if he was given other scientists patents and ideas to rewrite and to possib...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

It is interesting that the rays would almost be parallel given official numbers. Before posting, I just did a quick (hasty) calculation on the angle of the light rays coming from the edge of the sun versus the center (at our distance), but didn't realize the angle was in radians so of course, it di...

Re: Fakery in Orbit: THE I$$

Why isn't the moon visible before and after the eclipse? Here's the answer to your question. The atmosphere between us and the moon is much brighter than the moon, so we see that instead, especially since no part of the moon is being reflected towards us. Here's another question. Since the moon is ...

Re: Elon Musk, SpaceX and PayPal

Elon Musk truly is the 'boring grandson' of the far, far more entertaining Wernher Von Braun. In other words, the 'planned colonization of Mars' is a silly, 61-year-old joke - yet millions of people still believe in the reality of space travel... :rolleyes: I heard from a friend about Wernher Von B...

Re: Stars/no stars - and other space oddities

If Hoi has observed stars and the Moon out the window on his many long haul flights then I feel confident in saying that stars and the Moon are observable at least up to the altitude of those flights. Doing a quick research on how high long haul flights fly at, it appears they cruise at between 9km...
