SpaceX: The Latest
« on: February 06, 2018, 03:20:55 PM »


Take a look while the livestream's up.
A simple car that survived being launched up through the atmosphere, survived the friction, and got out into outer space, floating so freely that a camera can not only see its undamaged frame, but the space around it. And look how quickly the stars whoosh by.

Just look.

Do you have something specific you want us to educate you on?

We could start with the friction (or rather lack thereof)? Or are you content with your head in the sand?

A car launched through the atmosphere?
Was the car attached to the outside of the rocket?
Do tell.

What about the two rockets landing?
Or was David Copperfield involved?

You could start with all the issues I mentioned in the post rather than ignoring them.
The friction. The speed of the stars (especially when compared to the speed of the Earth; even that footage near the end of the Earth's reflection vanishing into the distance rather than rotating out of view).

I appreciate SpaceX's sense of humor, but you cannot really be buying this.

I'm not seeing any "whooshing stars". Can you provide an example? Was the system turning when you saw that? If you don't know what's happening, something like that can be confusing.

Why would the frame be damaged? I suspect a car has a frame that's a lot stronger for its size and mass than most purpose-built spacecraft not intended to survive re-entry, yet such spacecraft are launched, with no frame damage, routinely.

This stunt, and that's what it is because its an experimental launch so they wanted to launch inexpensive ballast (and, yes, even a Tesla Roadster - especially since they can get it for less than retail - is very inexpensive in this context), so they launched a car, brings a couple of ideas for memes to mind.

Maybe someone with better graphic skillz than I have can do something with:

"In the '60s we had TELSTAR. In the 21st century we now have TEsLaSTAR!"

And...

"Cars to Mars!"

Still, I can see why a demonstration of capability like this would put anyone who wants to believe the earth is flat into an absolute lather, especially since it was done with a sense of humor. Your first inclination to simply lash out is completely understandable.

I am not sure, I know they are very capable when it comes to CG

but honestly what is the logical answer and how an Flat Earther can respond to the event? if its fake what are the reasons?

Also I would like to know why we cant see any satellites or stars?

Friction.....what do you know about friction other than the obvious!
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/06/science/falcon-heavy-spacex-launch.html

The whole Space X reality really gets all you flat earthers running around in a spin desperately  making up all sorts of excuses to explain it away.

Looks like Space X got some of their calculations  wrong with their roadster now heading to the asteroid belt rather than Mars! Was their main mistake not asking the PaPa teabag and JRowe to check their workings!

Possibly they forgot to factor in the friction! What do you think JRowe?

While you hear tell us all you know about friction and stars, shouldn’t take you long given what you know!

Apparently you didn't lift one finger to even *try* to understand how the launch went and how the car got out there? Did you even watch the launch? You just come here and shoot from the hip with ridiculous assumptions? I guess that is the only way to explain away SpaceX for flat earthers. Blind ignorance.

Of course it's fake.  But the 2 double sonic booms at the very end were a nice touch.

It looks a lot more like you roundies are in a tizzy to me.
I just pointed out a few oddities, and said I appreciated the humor, and look at how mad you're all getting.

We just think it's really cool. Because it is.

You mentioned some things you considered oddities and were asked about them. Did you ever answer?

I'm not seeing any "whooshing stars". Can you provide an example?

Why would the frame be damaged?

You did mention that you appreciate the humor, but seem bitter about it.

Anyway...

"Whooshing stars"?

"Frame damage"?

Yes as you well know, the thread isn't that long.
Did you ever watch the video? Look for any time you can see the stars, look how they go!
I'd also suggest taking the time to read the OP where not only are my objections raised, but they're explained.

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?

Ok.  What friction should the car have been subject to and why should the frame be bent?
