To be honest Iím not sure what those objects are, could be small fragment of dust being illuminated by sunlight or other satelites with sunlight reflecting off them. Whatever they are they are being illuminated by the sun. Given what the camera is exposing for its not stars, they would be too dim to show up. Go out during the day and try to photograph the stars, they are still there, not gone away, just too dim to see! A bit like you really dim!
You flat earthers must really hate this stuff as it kills stone dead your prehistoric beliefs.
Aww, scared?

How feasible is it that they could create a perfectly airtight chamber that is both detachable but secure enough to survive being stuck on the side during being blasted out the atmosphere, that when it detaches gets far enough away to not even scratch the paintwork?
Don't give me that "But they say they did it!" nonsense. That's completely circular. tell me how you think that is even possible.

The chamber wasn't on the side, it was on the top. Did you watch the launch? I wouldn't think it would be airtight but rather would be allowed to depressurise as the rocket gained altitude.

How feasible? Well it's been done hundreds of times for the launch of satellites, so presumably not that difficult.

JRowe I am astounded at your ability to avoid a simple question.
Is it the atmosphere that you think should be causing friction on it?  If not, what?
You're seriously going to sit there and claim I'm evading?!
This didn't actually happen. i couldn't tell you what would or wouldn't happen because there's nothing to tell. There are a billion possible set-ups you could use, some where it is the atmosphere, some where it isn't. What matters is when you put it all together. So look at it, and tell me rather than avoiding the issue:

Yes I do claim that because you have answered every time with a question.
You brought up friction.  I asked friction from what?
You then responded with more questions about what I thought possible.
Can you not simply say, friction from the atmosphere, friction from aether, or whatever?

Oh what a surprise, the latest is he overshot Mars and is headed towards the asteroid belt. He probably got nervous people were onto his con job so he's writing off the stunt a mere day after launch.

Great, that just makes it even harder to get rid of the covering. And depressurising will still exert a lot of friction given the rate of it, even if air and heat can't get back in. Which it can, but whatever.
No it hasn't been done hundreds of times for the launch of satellites, and the fact you need to refer to that clinches it.

You're a boiled frog. You get fed the lie over and over and you know that if you compare it to what you know, it's nonsense, so you have to compare it to all the middle steps they've given you as they've turned the temperature up. Look at that, you just do it without even thinking.

Who's writing what off?  It was a test flight to make sure the 3 cores could work together as advertised (and they did, quite nicely).  Sending the roadster to Mars was just to make what would otherwise be boring payload more interesting.

But I will answer your question.  Is it feasible that they could build a system to keep the atmosphere out and the eject said covering?
Absolutely.  Every fighter plane has a system for doing that.
So, are you saying the friction YOU claimed would be a problem is coming from the atmosphere?

Little past the three hour mark. Pay special attention to how the Earth dwindles into the distance in the reflection rather than being cut off as the car rotated, when no possible movement could justify that, especially when the Earth pops up again later.
Haven't seen the stars yet on the video but what friction are you talking about and why would the frame be damaged?
Try getting out of the atmosphere sometime.
Ok.  What friction should the car have been subject to and why should the frame be bent?

Because that's the way he argues.
If the video had shown the car with burned up paint from the friction
And the frame all twisted and bent

He would say "Well that proves it's a fake,
If there was that much stress on the car, how could the rocket survive it?"
Show me a Flat Earth map that works.

Stars whooshing by.....wow.  As you know the only star within 4 light years of Earth is our star, the Sun.  The journey to the sun would itself take months and months.  The only way you would see stars in the distance whooshing by is of the craft was traveling near light speed.  I know it is difficult to understand because the distances involved are so vast. 
Three hour mark. You can actually see them. Watch the damn video.

Don't give me that "But they say they did it!" nonsense. That's completely circular. tell me how you think that is even possible.

They've been doing that successfully for more than 50 years. Here's an example of one that didn't work correctly:



Affectionately known as "the angry alligator", it's from Gemini 9. In 1966. They got better at it. How they make complex stuff look simple and be reliable is called "engineering".

"How feasible is it that they could create a perfectly sufficiently airtight chamber that is both detachable but secure enough to survive being stuck on the side [?] during being blasted out the atmosphere, that when it detaches gets far enough away to not even scratch the paintwork?"

Quite. That's what engineers do. They're trained professionals, and for some of them, that is their job.

You can see the Earth's reflection vanishing despite occupying the same basic location on the car's side; impossible by rotation, only possible by moving far away, but it isn't moving that fast.

The reflection appears to be moving relative to the panel. Rotation will cause this, and there's nothing except wishful thinking on your part that suggests it's anything but rotation.

Quote
Also:

You can see a star to the right there. There is no explanation for that speed.

How do you know that's a star? Watching that clip shows bright specks drifting "up" relative to the car, and others drifting to the right at the same time, the latter at about the same apparent speed the earth comes into view from the left. This looks like the system is rotating, that's all. Probably none of the bright specks are stars. Most likely, they are relatively nearby bits of stuff left over from the launch hardware.

You really do see what you want to see and ignore everything else, don't you?

OK.

The boiling frog is a fable describing a frog being slowly boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out, but if the frog is put in tepid water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to or be aware of threats that arise gradually.

While some 19th-century experiments suggested that the underlying premise is true if the heating is sufficiently gradual, according to contemporary biologists the premise is false: a frog that is gradually heated will jump out. Indeed, thermoregulation by changing location is a fundamentally necessary survival strategy for frogs and other ectotherms.

That's wikipedia, but they do provide references. Have at it!

Unsubstantiated opinion: if you put a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will probably die before it can jump out. If that is indeed correct (but I'm not going to torment any frogs to test it), your metaphor is exactly backwards.

Spacex launched a rocket.
The two outside boosters separate
And LAND without incident.
Granted, the 3rd booster ended up in the ocean.
But as Meatloaf said 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

Interestingly, before the launch, Spacex put out an animation of it.
The landing of the 2 boosters in the animation is very similar to the real footage.
The animation shows the third boosted landing on a ship,
Which didn't happen.

The reason I bring this up is that Spacex predicted what would happen.
The biggest oops was the 3rd booster falling in the ocean.

The flat earth world is getting harder and harder to explain.
And I bet FEs are cursing Elon from morning to night.


Show me a Flat Earth map that works.

Wow, a near infinite amount of variables and the predictions work almost like clockwork. Hmm, I wonder if the final thing we saw was just another (more sophisticated) animation

In any event it seems Elon has pretty much canned it a day after launch, claiming the 'rocket' will shoot past Mars and into the asteroid belt. Convenient as now no one will bother to 'watch' with as much interest. I guess he got nervous the jig was up

But you have to remember there were actual people who watched the rockets land.
Not on computer or TV but LIVE and in person.
If you wanted to, you could have been there to watch it, LIVE.

You could have contacted an FE who lived in the area of the launch
And asked them to go have a look.

Of course, the rockets landing does not prove the car went to space.
But my point is that most FEs can't even accept stuff that regular people saw
Live and in person.

Or were there guards at the launch site and the large surrounding area
That kept all FE personnel from watching?

Why don't you ask the spectators watching the blast off and landing of the 2 outer cores how sophisticated the animation was?

What jig?  I don't understand what you're getting at.  The payload was intended to go in a heliocentric orbit out past Mars anyway.  So what if they overshot somewhat?  It's not as if they intended to land on Mars.
