A couple of facts about space


Recommended Posts

Even the most modern spacecraft cannot make out the license plate, as is often shown in Hollywood films. The best image resolution will be 14 inches per pixel and will only be reached in 2021 (soon :)). And the crew of the International Space Station will cross the line 16 times between December 31 and January 1 and will be able to celebrate the New Year the same number of times. What interesting facts about space do you know?

That everything I have ever been told about space is either a partial lie or an utter lie!

Elaborate on your awe inspiring views. I'll try to help you understand how you got in such a muddle. As I said, listening to children. Either that or very foolish people.

You aren't trying to steer the thread into Flattery are you?

 

MOD NOTE:

Stop harassing members. 

Engage with the topic / question. 

Thanks

What is in the military domain is different and not publicized...Back before  2000 , according to Alex Jones and his insiders they had satellites that could read the print in the book you were reading while sitting in a deck chair in your garden ...

 

This is not difficult science just fine craftsmanship in grinding mirrors and lenses .... Hubble facing back to Earth

God & I know that space doesn't exist in the way we think it exist's, or rather the way NASA tells it, e.g the planets are not planets they are wondering stars.

This rather vague comment begs more information. It could be argued that it is deliberately provoking the OP.

 

I am engaging with the topic by asking for this member to elaborate on what experience suggests is not an informed view.

No, you're not 'engaging', you're being rude and insulting / provoking. 

Stop.

What do they wonder about?

 

.... LOL ...Good one Morph ..... They are of course Wandering Stars Named by the ancients because they were dots of light (Stars) , that didn't stay still relative to all the other dots of light (stars) ...The ancients called all dots of light "stars" including UFO's .

Hey guys! Let's not turn funny facts into meaningless insults to each other. If you have real proof of your point of view with documentary evidence - then welcome. If not, then we will take as a starting point the existence of the Universe, proved by many countries and companies, described in a textbook on physics and astronomy)


NASA had only 11 usable space suits in 2019. They were developed in the late seventies, and their service life expired in the last century. Due to malfunctions in the outdated cooling system of spacesuits, astronauts' helmets accumulate moisture. According to NASA engineer Pablo de Leon, each such suit weighs more than 150 kg and costs $ 22 million.

For example, such facts also seem pretty funny to me)

Yes, I was really wrong with the units. Sorry. No, this is not copy-paste, I am not on Facebook. The astronaut's suit for movement inside the station weighed about 64 pounds. And the EVA suit weighs about 80 pounds. A bit confused with what I've read about designing the Lunar Suit with an approximate weight of 150-180 pounds.

The planet's spin on their axes and even average telescopes can see this. Your denial is akin to head inserted within rectum and complaining you can't see anything.

 

Go buy a telescope and see the obvious.

Sensors indicate you avoided an honest reply. Go to an observatory and break free from your fake religious prison.

 God is not fake but NASA & Co are. Mostly every thing they film & do has an essence of fakery about it. 😇 vs 🚀

MOD NOTE:

 

This is a polite warning to keep this thread on-topic and to quit with the baiting and bickering.

 

If you have nothing interesting to contribute, walk away...

 

Trolling will not be tolerated, so be warned, because I can already see the direction this thread is going otherwise.

OP - I beg you do real science and don't blindly believe the hear-says of NASA. Take a look on this forum and on the alternative media: Nasa have been caught telling porkies about absolutely everything they ever mention. 

 

Furthermore - If you are religious (I have no idea if you are but many members here seem to be Christian) - Nasa's model is in complete conflict with the biblical model (which matches with the Qur'anic model).

 

So - let's talk about facts..... facts, in this instance as we are dealing with science, is something that you can prove for yourself... what facts can you tell me about space? and what experimentation or observations have you tried to arrive at your conclusions? Because anything else is far from being fact it is in fact hear-say - and it is a fallacy to believe their is such thing as a reliable hear-say.

 

Peace

OP: "what interesting facts do you know about space?"

 

Without claiming it as a fact, it has been proven that space/spacetime can acquire curvature due to the extreme mass of objects within it and, consequently, space is not a largely empty nothingness and it must have an underlying structure to it that can be curved...

facts are born of proofs, if you have proof then you are using facts to establish that proof, to hedge your statement by questioning the factual basis of the statement right at the outset causes the reader to immediately question the veracity of what you claim to be proven

wrong. there is no factual evidence that "space" and "time" have any material reality, they are ideals that cannot affect the realm of matter, as concepts they can be used to help interpret what we experience, but still those interpretations are in the mind and have no physical reality

"space" is not empty, science tells us that the interstellar medium is filled with plasma and dust, plasma is ionized dust and is the basic building block of all universal constructs, from the plasmoid in every active galactic nuclei to the sand on our beaches, everything is various states of ionized material, and electricity pervades it all

So far, experiments to verify Einsteinian relativity have proved that spacetime does have effect on matter.

So far, experiments to verify Einsteinian relativity have proved that spacetime does have effect on matter. Plasma and dust are just things that exist in space and are not the underlying structure of space itself. I would agree that electricity pervades it all
