Communication with the ISS by amateurs.
« on: March 16, 2018, 05:17:51 PM »
Ok Flat Earthers, explain this:







So if NASA really wanted to fake space and keep it secret as long as possible, why would they waste energy on allowing people to talk to a "fake" radio channel, instead of just saying "no screw you, you can't". I bet most people don't even know you can talk to the ISS.
I still believe its round don't worry.

Why wouldn't they waste energy on that? Its not like they can appear in public.

Because it costs money. If NASA is out to embezzle money, why waste any of it on something that 99.9% of people will never know about, let alone participate in? It makes no sense.

Publicity stunt. The Youtube account in that first video is NASA's official Youtube account.

Yeah....I don't think NASA gains much publicity by communicating with ham radio operators. lol

They got 350 thousand views and probably a bunch of news articles out of it. What do you mean?

Yep - 350K views....in 7.5 years.  One video of the Space X Falcon Heavy has 21 million views. In 1 month! There are many other videos of the same launch with over a million views each. I guess to a FEer, 350k views is a lot.

And how much do you think NASA invested in the SpaceX Falcon Heavy vs this Ham Radio demonstration?

Well, since SpaceX launched and landed their rockets from and on NASA property, I would have guessed that SpaceX were paying NASA a fee for the privilege...

Do you have any empirical data regarding who paid whom ...?

Not Flat. Happy to prove this, if you ask me.

Nearly all flat earthers agree the earth is not a globe.

Nearly?

This is flat earthism. Emperical evidence is not needed. There has been enough of that to put paid to any flat earth ideology but it is all ignored in favour of the conspiracy.

Great opinion. But if you have nothing to add to the thread beyond reminding everyone you don't like FET, then don't bother posting. Warned.
