Flat Earth Investigations / Re: Curvature investigation
« on: September 19, 2019, 06:45:34 AM »
Not an explanation, but a method for investigation;

Find a coastal location with a hill or two, somewhere you can climb to be above any passing ships, but still be within a few km of the shore.

Observe ships. Note your sightlines to those ships, or photograph them, particularly noting any where their masts or superstructures appear above the horizon, where you see sky behind and beyond.

Geometry dictates that if you are looking from a location above the ship, your sightline through the top of the ship, IF the seas are flat, must meet the sea beyond. It cannot miss it. Your sightline will be a descending sightline, in relation to the presumed flat plane below

Plug your heights and distances into any right-triangle calculator to calculate the point at which the sightline should meet the sea

Why is it so difficult to admit that nasa never did a trial launching of an unmanned lunar module , from its launchpad table , away from the surface of the moon ?

I don't see any need to "admit" to it, any more than I need to admit that there were no trial runs in other risky human endeavours.

Land speed records, water speed records, air speed records - all got there by incrementally getting nearer and nearer the goal, until someone stepped out beyond that.

I don't see this any different. NASA was under a budget, and under a timescale to complete the human landing before 31 Dec 1969, directed by their President. They did the incremental stuff, and designed the process of leaving the lunar surface with due care and attention to detail.

The RE response to this one seems to be "Hairspray doesn't prove that it's fakery."

My response is - hairspray doesn't work on jewellery.

With any of the videos of the female ISS crew, watch the necklaces. That's all you need do. Discussion about hairspray becomes moot after this.

It was incredibly easy to get men to the moon and even easier to bring them back . Did nasa ever do a trial run - launching a rocket from the moon to rendezvous with an orbiting spacecraft ?

Yes. Trial runs got progressively nearer to the actual Apollo 11 experience in Apollo 1 through 10, the last of which descended to within a few miles of the surface, then returned to dock with the CM. All Apollo 11 had to do in addition to this was land and take off.

Of course, there's an alternative explanation for why NASA is being rapidly scaled down, and why they make less and less big news. Retiring it to obscurity is probably the best move at this point.

It may not be "big news", but it's news that matters for sections of the scientific community. Have a browse at NASA's Technical Reports Server someday.

And bear in mind what the first A in NASA stands for....

50 years ago it was easy to get to the moon - now we can't get out of low earth orbit.

We can, but nobody is putting up the money to do so with manned missions. Most everyone has other priorities.

"Not trying to" is different from "can't" ...

The goal is to attach a small camera to the outside of a solid state fuel rocket 3 miles into the air that will allow me to see that the earth is indeed flat.

You can verify or deny this from the ground, from as little as 200m above sea level, by carrying out your own observational experiments. Shall I tell you how?

Flat Earth Community / Re: Van Allen Radiation Belt
« on: July 08, 2019, 07:22:40 AM »
6. One of the articles said Allen Radiation Belt is 100 billion times more effective then hiroshima. No human can go beyond low earth orbit.

To suggest that we're limited to LEO BECAUSE of the VABs is to admit the Earth as a sphere. An orbit is a path around a sphere or globe. Once someone admits that LEO is a "thing", then they have, by implication, admitted Earth as a globe or sphere as a thing.

You could repeat Norwood's method of the 1600s, and take a 'chain' of known length. Walk between the two cities you select, stretching the chain, one length at a time, counting the number of chains between the two cities, and making allowances for gradient as you go.

What makes you think that the Nibiru community aren't using coronagraphs to try and find Nibiru?

So you agree that they have not actually found it, then?

What "effect" would that be?

Why does that effect only occur outwith times of solar eclipse?

RE also asserts that there is an object near the sun that is casting a shadow.

Where is it asserted, and by whom, that there is an object (other than Earth) doing this?

« on: July 01, 2019, 06:41:32 AM »
Maybe America took the lead and stood firmly about certain opinions and most other countries kinda just went along.

America was in the process of being colonised in the 1600s. Folk like Norwood, in the UK, were already taking steps to measure the circumference of the globe.

Who would be likely to have "stood firm" in America at this time?

My sole purpose in coming to this site is to provide people who are trying to verify the world situation for themselves with some information that I can paraphrase to help them achieve their goals faster.

What reason(s) can you provide for people to use your paraphrased information? All you have attracted here is bewilderment at what you're trying to say, or disagreement with what you say.

What qualifications do you have to set yourself up as a reference source?

Well, what a coincidence. Boston Dynamics prepares to launch first commercial dog ...
Jesus, have we descended to the level of copy-pasting links to automatically generated youtube "news" stories with a text-to-speech "newsreader"?

No, the nice bot lady saying it's totally happening does not make it sound likely.

Is this moderation or personal contribution?

Yes, it's obviously different from what you know.

So what evidence do you have that might support what you say?

Of course I know this, but I still choose to relay it to you.

You know... what?

They look too far away, which causes them to look round.

They "look round" because they ARE round. When you look at them with the naked eye, when you look at them with binoculars or telescopes, when someone sends a remote spacecraft to orbit or land, when someone sends a manned craft, or places a satellite within viewing range...

There's nothing wrong with you not accepting it. I'm just Posting it to you. It doesn't matter if you make any comments.But others may do the research.

Research into WHAT?  Exactly what research have YOU done into square planets?

If I tell you that the sun and the moon are both cubes, the sun is about 571.2km long, wide and high, and the moon is about 548.8km long, wide and high, they are both about 470400km high. What do you think?

Doesn't fit with ANY of the available evidence. Therefore, I think your claim should be rejected. The evidence includes the observations of astronomers, the experiences of those who have taken manned craft around and onto the Moon, the data relayed from unmanned craft which have orbited it and landed upon it, etc. etc.

I just want to tell you what I know, because for me you don't know this, I believe you are a person who wants to know more.

I really don't think you "know" this.

.... I've seen the answer, and it's not what you know it to be.

Yeah, right.

My goal of showing you something you haven't heard of has been achieved.

.. but you haven't SHOWN anything. All you've done is make written claims. No evidence, no 'show'.

It's sunset time for me.But the shadows of the eastern clouds are all below. Why?

Depends on where you are, surely? Are you on high ground? At a coast?

Here's the thing:
If the surface of the earth were a sphere, sunrise and sunset would be the rise and fall of the sun from the horizon in view.
So at sunrise or sunset, when a mountain is above the horizon, do the shadows of the mountains have a chance to be cast on some of the clouds behind them that are higher than the mountains?

Tumeni says - Yes, you can find pictures of this all over the internut


Because mountains are higher than the horizon, and the sun is below the horizon, this is likely to happen if the surface of the earth is really a sphere.

It does. People have photographed it.

Similar instance occurs when you, the observer, are in darkness, and you see a satellite that is still in sunlight against your night sky...
