Lol, "dodgy cameras". Listen, biatch, you try launching a two-ton camera into an Earth/Sol lagrangian point orbit and take pictures of a 1.9 x10^30 kg burning ball of nuclear fire, see how many camera artifacts you end up with.

Anyone know the story on the "deathstar" refuelling at the sun story? I wan't to know what that is or if it is just a camera artifact.

Soooo.. that spaceship is the size of Earth, perhaps Mars? For it to be that relative size immediately perpendicular to the angle of the camera view where it meets the sun, it would have to be as large or larger than the Earth or even Neptune: Earth vs Sun. If it not that size, then it would have to be MUCH closer than the sun, which pretty much precludes it from being any sort of spaceship 'fuelling' itself from the sun.

These guys aren't even trying anymore... or maybe they're trying too hard.

If there is a spaceship that size that can get that close to the sun to 're-fuel', I'm not sure that I want to know about it. And I sure as hell hope that it does not know about us.

Ah, paranoid schizophrenia. It would be funny if the lunatics didn't set off gullible idiots who desperately need some kind of cause to take up.

It's not just a ball of fire.

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

there are a few things that are kind of throwing up flags for me. I'm certainly no expert or even amateur astronomer but it would seem to me that if it were as close to the sun as is implied that it would need to be orbiting at a very fast rate to not crash into the sun, and by this point we should have gotten a good look at it transiting the sun.

And if it is as big as earth (although from the pictures it looks like it would have to be way bigger than earth) the amount of energy needed to get it moving away from the sun when it was done refueling would be staggering.

I'd like to hear what the bad astronomer would have to say about it. i know he's a farker but i dont think ive ever seen him in one of these threads to debunk this ridiculousness.

"Nasa are clearly trying to stop us looking at the sun. The reasons could be anything from the crafts/ships seen recently or an impending solar flare that will wipe out humanity."


If those are the only choices, I will go with option B. More plausible.

Pffft that is not a deathstar. That is a Hydrogues ship attacking the Faeros. Nothing to worry about until the Klikiss come back.

And sure as HELL wouldn't need a tube extending from it to refuel. "Gotta fill up the gas tank again. Extend the tube!"

"NASA are scared that a minority of people including myself have the ability to find and share these things with the general public."

Translation: I'm a nobody with no scientific training whatsoever, in desperate need of attention. So of course I have the "ability" to "find" "these things."

General scientific consensus is that there is other life universe, yet every UFO sighting is dismissed offhand as a hoax.

no one said hoax. just not a giant space ship harvesting energy from the sun.

This is a "UFO" the size of a planet. Something that size would have a gravitational effect on the sun's corona, which we do not observe in this case. Further, an object that size that close to the sun would need to dissipate heat or else it would be vaporized. Yet there is no infrared radiation source observed in the proposed location.
 
2012-05-09 01:32:14 PM
of course NASA doesn't want you looking at the sun. You'll go blind. Personally I prefer to go blind the old fashion way, hairy palms be damned.
 
2012-05-09 01:32:15 PM
How hot would it be right next to the sun anyway? I mean if some aliens have technology that can get them that close to our sun we sure as hell don't want them knowing we exist. But since we are glowing beacons in this universe anyone that got close enough to our sun knows about us and would make us their biatches.

Looks a bit like a Voyager type spacecraft caught between the camera and the sun. Kinda...

Yes, it's a camera artifact. It is an artifact which has cameras on board.

The difference between life existing on other worlds and life being capable of interstellar travel is a as mind crushingly huge as the distance between stars.

Just imagine the hysteria that would be caused should a government announce that indeed there were known aliens in the universe.
I don't blame them for not wanting to say anything.
All the hardcore religious wingnuts would freak. They crazies will throw up their arms and go mad. Economic panic, terrors, and insanity in general would be rampant.

Huh... looks kinda like the Destiny from SG:U, and what better way to hide something so massive than to root it firmly in the realm of fiction through convenient forms of entertainment. Just like those farkers did with vampires and werewolves and such.

What possible reason could anyone have for covering this up?
Confirmed discovery of alien life / technology / triple-breasted sex goddesses would be a positive thing for science, society and the human race and it would be accolades all round.
But whatever, keep believing that the greatest minds of our generation are simply wrong, missing the most obvious things, or part of some massive satanic freemason conspiracy because some random unaccreditted tool on the internet posted some unsubstantiated horsefecalmatter.

So we're really going to sit here and argue that an alien race that can manufacture a ship the size of a planet, and get that close to the sun without being vaporized, would still be constrained by our sharty understanding of gravity?
