Before everyone gets into technicalities, remember: from the perspective of the astronauts it was an earthrise, even though it wasn't in reality.

It's simulated. Much like the moon landing itself

Screw that. Build ships so I can go to the moon and experience it myself, you lazy dogs!

Where's my warp drive? Where's my fusion power? Where's my "coffee" made of cocoa beans instead of coffee beans because really coffee tastes awful comparatively?

I mean you could achieve at least one of those goals by this time next year.

"Earthrise"

...was not FASA's best work.  It was allright, but Shadowrun was better.

I love Kubrick films!

Cool find, subby

Thanks

We had this thread yesterday, but it's awesome enough to be worthy of a repeat.

Everyone may as well play Kerbal Space Program and experience it for themselves rather than watch this.

I always liked this one:

www.slate.com

because it is a photo of every human alive at the time except for Michael Collins, the photographer.

doglover: Where's my warp drive?


Where's the verifiable physics behind that?

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: because it is a photo of every human alive at the time except for Michael Collins, the photographer.


Look closer, and wait about 50 billion years.

And every dead human too, except any abducted by aliens.

He has to uninate on each thread to mark it.

Since you've made that obligatory post, here's the obligatory response, which is my favorite video proving the moon conspiracy nuts are idiots.

CALM DOWN LOVELL is my new favorite quote

VelcroFez: CALM DOWN LOVELL is my new favorite quote


Yeah, I got a kick out of that too. I was a producer on a space science doc this year and we spent some time listening to some of the raw audio recordings from the Apollo 11 mission. It's pretty funny listening to these guys kill time and interact with each other.

I can't wait for the Farkers to wet their pants with a reading from Genesis.

I was saying something to that effect earlier today:  My generation really got screwed, when it comes to follow-through on possibilities.  My parents put a man on the moon - where's my farkin' jetpack?

You're a troll.  Are you having fun?

So I guess this might as well be a KSP thread now. This picture was taken at the beginning of my mission to Eeloo.

There's also this:  http://www.braeunig.us/space/hoax.htm

So many of the claims that these morons make are so easily and laughably refuted that I don't know why anyone would be convinced.  The photography related ones especially are really amateur hour stuff.

Except that requires huge amounts of exotic matter with negative mass/energy.  Which is pretty much just code for "something that will never exist but we can still plug the numbers into our equations to see what would happen if it did."
 
2013-12-22 08:40:23 AM  
Now, Quantum Apostrophe, please show us on this doll exactly where the Space Program bad-touched you.

Seriously, that farming guy...
 
2013-12-22 09:16:25 AM  
Not "farming guy," "farking guy."

Bloody auto-correct.

You weren't wrong.  This year he had a bumper crop of rustling people's jimmies.

I apologize for nothing. Low hanging fruit is the sweetest.

I didn't say it was a problem that had been solved, but the troll trolled for verifiable physics.
