Really?  What kind of telescope allows that?  Do you have any evidence this is true?

I have the experience, just as hundreds of thousands of other people with telescopes, jackass.

It's not at all like that. You're saying: Satellite exist, and you can see this with a telescope. I'm saying: satellites may or may not exist, but you cannot see this with a telescope.

Exactly my point.

I'm not denying the possibility that they exist, I am simply saying that your method of proving this is wrong.

This claim is obviously false unless you have ever observed a satellite through a telescope; Then you're just being a jackass. Neither would surprise me.

No Xargo, you can't even make out that level of detail on the International Space Station. The only telescopes powerful enough to see what you're describing are far too powerful to view satellites with in the first place.

Wow, that's strange, I could've sworn I've observed  satellites through my own telescope just fine on several occasions!

How many times must I repeat this Xargo? I have observed satellites many times through my telescope. I viewed them under clear atmospheric conditions, with very little light pollution.

Satellites, when viewed through a telescope, appear as small specks of light moving quickly across your field of view. No degree of detail is visible whatsoever.

Then it's your telescope, not telescopes, Geo.

maby you have to change the focus of it a little. or zoom in more. or get a job and stop being such a hippie and afford a good one.
he kinds of equations that they have now are the kinds of equations you would get in an approximation scheme to some underlying theory, but nobody knows what the underlying theory is.

the satellites shouldn't be visible in detail because according to the government they orbit at 700-800km and 30000-40000km....look around thats what nasa claims... beside if a 10ft objects moving at the supposed 16,000 or so miles per hour you couldn't get a good "picture" of the "satellite"

I don't think you have any idea what does or does not constitute a good telescope.

1. Earth is not a perfect sphere and Moon influences Earth's gravity as well.

2. Why "gravity" ? How is it constant ? What does it prove ? Constant and perfect things in science have reveleaded themselves to be FALSE after re-examination. There's nothing perfect, not even in science. If your "gravity" is constant, always the same, perfect!, it means that it's more likely to be false.

3. I explained why there's gravity and how it manifests in our world. Nothing else than gravity can explain phenomens like why does the apple dropped on this guy's head. Also, You guys with your FE theory assume that the Earth is flat because you have incomplete proofs and possibilities, not even probabilities about its flatness.

4. Go to Uni and you'll catch up the fundamentals : high school physics aren't enough in order to discuss about complicated science ;)

2.  The speed of light is constant, always the same, perfect.  Does this mean it is false?
3.  The apple falls due to acceleration.  As gravity=acceleration.


what about the universal gravitational constant... thats a  gravity constant...just to add...its 6.67300 10-11 m3 kg-1 s-2
