FAKE X - Catchin' Space Balls
« on: February 16, 2018, 05:09:03 PM »


Are we really supposed to believe that ridiculous looking trampoline is made to catch stuff FALLING FROM SPACE?

This is the Space X "Fairing Recovery Boat" named Mr. Steven.

You can care to believe anything you choose.

I suppose your incredulity depends on how fast you think something "FALLING FROM SPACE" in all caps is.

Or whether you've ever heard of a parachute.

The fairing system costs 1.3 million per launch...

Good business sense to reuse what they can.
Yes, you

Good, because I choose to believe reality.

Obviously you have never been on the ocean.

I have been on the ocean a number of times and it's not always very "dipping, rolling, windy, wavey" and there are good predictions of swell.

And, whatever you day, Space X have landed quite a number of first stages in spite of your "dipping, rolling, windy, wavey oceans".

Had you bothered to investigate a little further, you might have learned that the Space X "Fairing Recovery Boat"
seems to be a method proposed for the recovery of the second stage, which has no "legs".

Here are are couple of simulations of possible ways of doing it:

Second stage landing on recovery boat with Fairing Grabber

Small people with closed minds sit on the sidelines and ridicule. More capable people with minds open to what can be achieved go out and get things done.

But, as always, you'll choose to ridicule and claim it's all fake, even though it's done open to public view.

And how can we trust you on that, when you reject reality in almost every post?

I see. That's why they spent time and effort building it and stringing up the net?

Actually, I remember seeing the boat for the first time in an article and thinking...
Maybe those arms move down and plop in to the ocean to pick up stuff, for there was no net then.

No other possible way to catch or grab anything with those silly looking arms, I thought.
Even the article did not state how they were supposed to catch things, it even called it a robot.
Oh, and secrecy abounds, I was told photos are not allowed -in public- yet I do it anyway, because AMERICA!

I'm sure it was built to work or as a test platform.

Thats kind of how new discoveries and progress happens.
You need to see if an idea works or not before you try the next idea.

The idea with the net catch'ie thing is more to do with fairing recovery.

For each launch there are 2 fairings that cost a few million. Recovering those has obvious financial benefits.

The idea is that each fairing comes down with parachutes.
Not the silly round ones the army uses, but steerable ones. That way they can get the fairings close enough to the ship to try recover them. Chances are there will be many failures before the first successful recovery,

If/ when it works, they will kit another ship out like this.

They "they spent time and effort building it and stringing up the net" as part of their development process, which presumably is not complete yet.

All a someone as useless as you seem able to do is to sit on the sidelines and ignorantly criticise.
Were you there when "heavier than air flying machines" were being developed?
I guess that all you would have done is to sit on the sidelines and claim that it was impossible - as many others like you did!

Look dipstick, Space X is still developing the system - wait to see if they can make it work.
At first, they had many problems landing the first stage, but now they mainly succeed.

Closed minded idiots sit on the sidelines and ridicule. Open minded people do investigations and find out why.

HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION:

"Sir, we are ready to launch the fall-CON missile, I mean rocket!"

"Good prepare to fire!"

"Wait! We have just received word of rough seas and high winds!"

"CANCEL LAUNCH, we'll have to wait until conditions improve"



Too bad their little badminton net is just so incredibly unfeasible in a real world situation.

They have a secret weapon against that. Its called "weather reports". The same way I know if tomorrow is going to be a good surfing day or not. They actually postpone launches until the weather is correct.

First, I would say, it is time for you to stop using scrolls. They take up a lot of space and their latency is terrible.
I see you have discovered the "internet" and hope your latency is not dependent on your scribe speed, but rather you ADSL speed.
If that is the case I suggest you start here

No idea, but obviously they must have done it for some sinister reason.

Interesting theory.  How do you suppose aircraft carriers work then?

You understand that we have the technology to fire a missile AROUND THE WORD and have it land within centimeters of the intended target, right?  What makes you actually believe we don't have the technology to have a controlled landing in a net?

Why do flat earthers insist on using a lack of understanding of how things work as an actual argument?  "I don't get it, so it is fake!".  This has to be the most ridiculously stupid thought process that exists.

Word got out that a boat called Mr. Steven was going to be involved with the faring recovery. Maybe they hoped no one would notice them if they removed the name.

Jets have people inside to steer and are built to be maneuverable.

Empty chunks of rocket falling from the sky with parachutes are not the same thing.

They should have leased an aircraft carrier and blown up a bouncy house on deck to land their fairing on.

A bouncy house on a carrier would have been more believable than a tiny net on a tiny boat.

Why don't you give me one reason at all to do something like that.

It sure proves these space companies loooooove to modify the crap out of their images.

Not that it makes them a heck of a lot less credible or anything...

You're right; they're different. Jets are much faster on landing than equipment descending by parachute.

Parachutes are designed and built to be maneuverable, too, though, and can be steered remotely or by computer.
