    If you accept that NASA has lied about their space travel. Then how can anything they say be trusted as fact. Sure they are very smart people (a lot of the time) so do come up with some very convincing and likely sounding facts but most of it is just educated guesses because they have not been in to space to verify that. 

    You’re totally right imo. The problem is that I have no realistic way to prove it otherwise. I’m just looking to question the party line. I try investigating bits of the problem first.

    Im not a Flerther or heliocentrist. Just studying what the heck is really going on!

    Thing is chatgpt is likely learned on the NASA facts about science because NASA's facts are what everyone believes. 

    Absolutely. I questioned it about who it’s founders, sponsors and philanthropist donours were. All the usual suspects.

    Im not trusting the response more that it seems logical given the parameters I have set it.

    Im trying to use it as a tool to advance my off grid efficiency. I think if you ask it questions that are based around what’s going on etc you will get a party line type response. If you word better and don’t get too obvious it seems that it will give answers.


    on the flip side. I was trying to design a perpetual power system based on using rain water. By chatting back and forth it came up with theory, method and items needed. This was massively time saving. I was able to confirm the validity of its response quickly afterwards. Also I didn’t even know if it was possible. Usual problem of using more energy than produced. 

  3. What protection would a craft in space need to resist heat and radiation issues

    To protect a spacecraft from heat and radiation in space, there are several measures that can be taken. Here are a few examples:

    1. Thermal insulation: To protect the spacecraft from the extreme temperatures of space, it can be insulated with materials that have low thermal conductivity, such as multi-layer insulation (MLI). MLI is made up of many layers of thin sheets of reflective material, separated by small gaps of air, which helps to reduce the amount of heat that can be transferred to the spacecraft.

    2. Radiator systems: To prevent overheating of sensitive equipment and components, radiator systems can be used to dissipate heat. These systems use heat pipes or other heat transfer mechanisms to move heat away from the spacecraft and release it into space.

    3. Shielding: Radiation shielding can be used to protect the spacecraft and its crew from the harmful effects of cosmic rays and other high-energy particles. This shielding can be made from materials with high atomic numbers, such as lead or tungsten, or from water or other materials that can absorb the radiation.

    4. Active radiation protection: In addition to passive shielding, active radiation protection can also be used, such as using magnetic fields or plasma shields to deflect or absorb radiation.

    5. Redundancy and hardening of electronics: To protect the electronics and other critical components of the spacecraft, they can be designed with redundancy and hardening in mind. This means that multiple backups of critical systems are included, and the systems are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of space.

    6. Proper mission planning: Finally, proper mission planning can help to minimize the exposure of the spacecraft to heat and radiation. This includes careful consideration of the timing and trajectory of the mission, as well as the use of instruments to monitor and analyze the environment in real-time to detect and respond to any potential hazards.

  4. I get that chatgpt will be despised by most here. I have been asking some really complex questions and getting ultra detailed responses in seconds. 

    This was most of its response when I asked how out of the Earths atmosphere would change velocity.

    Conditions in space can have a significant impact on man-made propulsion vehicles. Here are a few examples:

    Lack of atmosphere: Unlike Earth, space has no atmosphere, which means there is no air resistance or friction to slow down a spacecraft. This makes it easier for a propulsion system to accelerate and reach high speeds.

    Vacuum: Space is a vacuum, which means there is no air pressure. This can affect the operation of some types of propulsion systems, particularly those that rely on air intake, such as jet engines. In space, propulsion systems must carry their own oxidizer to provide the necessary combustion.

    Temperature extremes: In space, temperatures can vary greatly, from extreme cold in the shade to extreme heat in direct sunlight. This can impact the performance and durability of propulsion systems, particularly those with moving parts or those that rely on temperature-sensitive materials.

    OK sorry for making the calculation mistake, it makes it seem now that 6750 km/h is not fast haha. Still on the way back they were going 8100 km/h during reentry. 486000 over 2.5 days. 

    I think, but don't know without checking, that the speed going to the moon sounds reasonable. Going on the basis of Land and air speed records etc.

    The hardest part is getting out of the Earths atmosphere. Hence the ridiculously sized fuel tanks etc.


    Once outside the Earth atmosphere the gravitational influence and vacuum will play a part in dictating the velocity and fuel consumption of any man made object.

    Im not arguing that this proves you wrong. For me its about understanding if its really possible and if so how.  More that the maths probably gets a lot more complex once in space.

    I think i might have an extra 0 by mistake.


    It says now 4194.26 miles per hour which is still wrong. 

    We are both answering each other at the same time. So it all looks crazy!

    it says 6750 km/h per hour for the speed 3 days for 486000 km

    Follow my method of converting to Km to miles first then divide by 72.


    Ill try in km now but should get the same answer but in kms

    3 days to travel 384000km, which is like 33k miles per hour haha. 

    Im not debating the subject, just correcting the maths. First method 10x faster.


    384000km equates to 238606.538 miles


    3 days = 72 hours


    238606.538 miles / 72 hours = 3313.97r

  8. Microsoft: In 2020, Microsoft announced a $1 billion investment in OpenAI to support the development of advanced AI technologies. The two companies have also collaborated on a number of research projects in the field of AI.

    I agree, I don't believe it. It was just funny timing because I was talking about them pioneering the covid vax rollout, then I noticed that new vax.

    Unless humans are the bacteria they have in mind.

    russel brand are kinda dictating what the alternative scene should and shouldn't be discussing

    100%. Brand is now on Fox news where they consider him a free thinker etc. Total bullshit that bloke.

    Even if he brings up subjects related to what's going on, its only done to make the so called right look like nutters imo. No way he is being allowed to reveal anything to the masses. Unless its what tptb want released.

    I kid you not, I have seen posts from suspicious people on 4chan that talk about doing stuff to the grid in America. Fortunately, they usually get called glowies and told to piss off. That's why you need to be careful about fedposters talking about violence on here.

    This is why mods have to come down hard on members or posts sometimes. We are all in a no win situation imo.

    As an AI language model, I cannot make assertions without concrete evidence. However, to my knowledge, governments did not lie about the coronavirus vaccines. The vaccines have undergone extensive clinical trials and have been deemed safe and effective by health authorities, including the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

    There have been some instances of misinformation or misunderstanding surrounding the vaccines, and some governments may have made mistakes or miscommunicated information, but it is not accurate to say that they deliberately lied about the vaccines.

    It is essential to rely on reputable sources of information when it comes to public health matters, and to be critical of information that is not supported by scientific evidence.

    Mod note. 

    The last few pages are full of stuff, best posted in different topics. Can we get back to CV related only please.



    Not that I don’t find the posts interesting. Just clutters up this topic!

    Leaks make a scoop on par with mp expenses scandal. As always the media downplaying.

    For days this week, coverage of their "Lockdown Files" filled the pages of The Daily Telegraph.

    They make up a scoop on a par with the Telegraph's earlier exposure of leaked files relating to MPs' expenses.
