Satellites : general discussion and musings

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.

So the question is: HOW exactly could any man-made satellite survive (for years & years on end, as we are told) in the midst of such constant bombardment? Have we ever heard of any of those precious satellites being hit by any space debris? And please, spare me from the standard, idiotic answer that "space is sooo vast that it is unlikely that any of our satellites get hit by any meteors/comets/asteroids/space debris". Thanks.

According to the “experts,” these man made behemoths have been launched into the vacuum since Sputnik in 1957. :rolleyes:

I find this to be a good time to remind our readers of the story of “The Big Bounce,” featuring Echo One (claimed to be a whopping “ten stories tall” :blink:) found here:

It is truly difficult to take the “real satellites” seriously when the whole thing began with silly things like Sputnik and Echo One.

Moreover, it’s rare that modern day WiFi can be maintained without some kind of disruption (requiring physical access to the equipment) even in my own house (complete with atmosphere) for two weeks straight in the year 2018.

To my knowledge, in the pre-satellites era, which is a considerable time interval, people, even "official sources" titled them as "falling stars".
I've never laid on my back for more than 10 minutes under a clear sky and not spotted one.

This could have been said, I think, by all our forefathers. (And mothers.)
