What a joke for people to eat up whatever NASA labels as truth, and if you say i'm the one who's deluded, you just haven't looked hard enough or are too conformed to your force fed beliefs since birth to wonder why people think it's all a load of crap.


What are you even referring to?

The Earth from a distance, The ISS, Moon Landings, it's all a visage on a grand scale.

Are you trying to tell me the ISS isn't there? Are you trying to tell me the earth isn't there? What are you trying to tell me?

I'm saying that the OP photo is a damn composite.
Yeah, there is no ISS.
Nobody ever landed on the moon.
This perpetual indoctrination is so easy to see through if you're willing to change your perspective.

I can see the ISS looking through a telescope, it's there.

There's a Dutch guy who takes photos of the ISS and launches. This is the ISS with details here.



We've also got several members who have taken pictures of the ISS. NGChunter uses his own image of the ISS as his avatar. Here are some more by a Russian guy.

You can see it yourself using this site. Be warned...it's a NASA site. The point is you can take your own ass outside one clear night and watch the ISS pass overhead. It looks just like a star, but it moves. The people taking photos use that regularity to aim their scopes so, yep, it's up there and viewable.

To put the thing up there took rockets and several missions. If you look at the Dutch guy's site, he's taken images of rocket stages in the upper atmosphere. Look on YT and see rockets launching stuff. Look on YT and see footage by ISS crew of Russian rockets bringing payloads *up* to them. Look on YT for crowds of people watching the launches. There's a massive, interwoven web of details that conclusively disprove your contention that none of these things actually exist.

Yeah, I know....you'll say it's all lies and make-believe. For a moment there, I just couldn't resist writing this post lol So we'll smile, be friends and disagree.

I was getting emails from NASA telling me where and when to see it in my local sky.
Like clockwork I could go outside with naked eye, binoculars or telescope and the the ISS for myself.

Totally real ... don't let the truth get in the way of a good story though.

There is no ISS? So who's blowing up ancient sites in the middle east, who's decapitating people and throwing them off buildings then?

J/k


Do you honestly think there's no space station, what do you base this on?
Also we've never landed on the moon or we just didn't land on it originally when they said we did?

I wonder if you are willing to change yours?

So, it is a perfect sphere, pear shaped, or an oblate spheroid? Make up your mind NASA. Because that picture right there? Is a perfect sphere. I do not want to hear any ridiculous theories on light bending and light refraction perspective law. Right now, that picture is a perfect sphere.

So which is it?

It looks round. Surprisingly like all the other planets, and the sun.

I wonder why that is?

"It's pear shaped" - Said nobody, ever.

The earth is an oblate spheroid. Technically though, it isn't a perfect oblate spheroid because of the uneven distribution of mass.

The reason the earth looks like a perfect sphere in pictures is due to the fact the earth is so massive, and the degree of change is so small, that it would not register in our minds.

Exactly how round is the Earth?

The shape of the Geode, as it is called, is nearly a perfect sphere, but because the earth is spinning, it is about 21.5 kilometers flatter at the poles, and bulged-out at the equator by about the same amount. There are also other 'higher-order' shape deviations which make the Earth slightly pear- shaped with a larger southern hemisphere surface area than in the northern hemisphere, but at a level of a kilometer or so in radial girth. The biggest effect, though, is its polar flattening. If you had a basketball to represent the Earth's spherical average shape, the flattening would be 21/6500 = about 1/300 the radius of the basketball or 1/32 of an inch...give or take.

Yeah, there is an ISS, I took the photo in my avatar which is STS-135 docked to ISS.

See, I encounter these kind of posts on ATS and elsewhere frequently, but one thing I can't understand is how these sentiments relate to the modern reality of our world where thousands of various organisations, ranging from engineering and scientific to commercial and administratorial, work together to advance and enhance each other's goals, as well as advancing and enhancing our day-to-day lives. This includes building, launching, and operating spacecraft like the Deep Space Climate Observatory (which, by the way, is not a NASA spacecraft).

Are you telling me that all these people, all the sub-contracts working for them, and all the businesses and administrations using their data are only pretending they are doing that?

Perhaps it is you who is too coformed in your anti-mainstream views. Why people think it's all a load of crap is easy - they are ignorant, and probably didn't do well at school.

Is that so?

"Earth is not only oblate — wider at the equator than pole-to-pole, but pear shaped — slightly wider just south of the equator" - Neil deGrasse Tyson (September 19, 2014 - 9:01 AM EST on twitter - a verified account, not parody).

Feel free to google it. You have seen a pear before right? Alright. They are nothing alike.

Nice image!

Here's one immediate benefit of having a camera up there: the EPIC Camera captured three developing tropical low pressure areas in the Indian Ocean. Two of the three systems may develop into a tropical depression in the next day or two. www.nasa.gov...


On October 25 and 26 two tropical low pressure areas are spinning in the Northern Indian Ocean, and one in the Southern Indian Ocean. The Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera or EPIC instrument that flies aboard NOAA's DSCOVR or Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite captured an image showing all three low pressure areas on October 25 at 05:37 UTC (12:37 a.m. EDT).


You can compare the image to the one taken the day before: epic.gsfc.nasa.gov...
