Here is NASA admitting that nobody has gone into space...
1. The NASA spokesman who said they need to solve the issue of the Van Allen Belts for the Orion spacecraft was talking about going through the Van
Allan belts is general. The Apollo spacecraft NEEDED to take a round-about and highly inefficient (fuel-wise) path through the Van Allen Belts closer
to the poles of the earth.
Orion is hoping to be able to take more efficient and direct paths through the belts, which mean passing through much denser parts of the belts.
So the guy presenting this video is either ignorant to this fact (i.e., he didn't properly research the topic) OR he is being intentionally dishonest
about it by misrepresenting the facts.
I'm thinking it is the latter, because the video presenter seems to be an intelligent individual. However, intelligence does not preclude him from
spouting intentional disinformation in order to amass clicks and subscriptions to his YouTube channel.
2. The astronaut who said "Right now, we can fly only in Earth Orbit; that's the farthest we can go" is absolutely right. We do not have a vehicle
that can take humans beyond Earth orbit and back. The Apollo CM could, but there are no Apollo CMs in use.
3. Thermosphere being too hot:
Again, either this guy did not properly research the topic, or he is telling intentional half-truths in order to amass clicks and subscriptions. His
channel include advertisements, so the more subscribers and clicks he has, the more money he can make.
The individual molecules in the thermosphere can in fact get as hot as he says -- upwards of 4500 degrees F. However, and this is the important
point he so conveniently ignored
, the molecules are so very sparse that they cannot possibly heat up an object in the thermosphere. There just
are not enough of those hot molecules per cubic inch of thermosphere to be able to transfer enough heat to an object for that object to get very
There's so much more ignorance spouted by this guy, but I'm too lazy to keep typing.
You (WIZolman) are welcome to listen to him, but I think you need to do some of your own research to learn more about the things he is talking about,
instead of just being a sheep and blindly believing what this guy says. Nor should you blindly believe me. Do your own research by using real
peer-reviewed sources from science journals.
