100% Fake News!
You're never going to answer my question about who you would believe about manned space flight being real, are you?
I do it at my web site.
No you don't! All you do is demonstrate the numerous ways that you are unable to understand "manned space flight".
Last time I look you made crude calculations that all the kinetic energy of the spacecraft goes into heating it but it does not do that.
A properly designed craft, heat shield and trajectory ensure that most of the kinetic energy heats the air resulting the huge plasma trail.

Then you get onto silly things like toilet facilities but if you bothered to do any research you might learn how that was handled.

Quote from: Heiwa
people got carried away in the 1950's and thought that space travel was easy.
If you bothered to read the history of even the first US satellite you would that none of the scientists or engineers "thought that space travel was easy".
Then, if you studied up a bit on the development of the Saturn V and especially the Rocketdyne F-1 engine you would think quite differently.

Maybe people, like you, who learned about space travel from Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers thought it was easy.

Quote from: Heiwa
And yes, it was fairly easy to send objects into orbits around Earth
It might seem easy now but back in the late 1950's it was near impossible and in the 1960s satellites could be launched fairly reliably but there were numerous failures.

Quote from: Heiwa
BUT it was impossible to get out of any orbit and return and land on Earth.
Quote from: Heiwa
No, it is not "impossible to get out of any orbit and return and land on Earth". You have NEVER proven otherwise and you never will!

Only one-way space trips are possible. So NASA faked it. Still does.
Rubbish again!

Did you watch the re-entry of the SpaceX Crew Dragon and the Boeing's Starliner Crew Capsule? Here have another look:
here is the earlier re-entry of SpaceX's "Crew Dragon" test flight to the ISS:

SpaceX Completes Crew Demo Mission To Space Station by Scott Manley.

And

Boeing's Starliner Recovers And Makes Bullseye Landing by Scott Manley.

Thanks for the standard rubbish of a tin pot with parachutes. Only Americans believing in winning the war in Afghanistan after 19 years can produce such impossible things.

<< Irrelevant >>
Next time post some evidence for your claims.
I'd believe SpaceX, Boeing, NASA and Scott Manley brfore you any day.

I'm not asking you at your web site.  I'm asking you here and I would like you to answer my questions here.

People got carried away in the 1950's and thought that space travel was easy.
People may have thought that, but engineers never did and still don't.

Yadda, yadda, yadda
You still aren't saying who you would trust as an authority on manned space travel or atmospheric reentry.
Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

Besides, perhaps FET is a conspiracy too.

It is just the way it is, you understanding it doesn't concern me.

OP:

Photos taken by crew member onboard the USS Kearsarge.
October 3, 1962
Scans of original slides, color fade corrected and cleaned with Digital ICE.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/steamarchive/albums/72157709390757626

The photos are not sharp enough to read the watches well, that could give us an exact time.
Perhaps with some imagination and comparison of different watches we can come close.
If you want to give it a shot, I can provide raw scans that got a higher dynamic range, usefull on the bright watch faces. Huge files though, without redcast correction.













Why do you freaking retarts allow heiwa to yank your shit sideways?
