Nobody can worry about a planet which isn't even capable of supporting life, which nobody can ever fly to, first of all.

Yes, he came out as a Flat Earther on another thread recently.

Whatever it is, it's brighter than Starmans Tesla. See that blip in the upper left corner? Coincidence or not?

He is naming his new ships after Ian M Banks' ships from his Culture books - eg "Of Course I Still Love You".

How cool is that.

He's like a real life Tony Stark.

Air in the tires was most likely removed (tires would burst in the vacuum of space).



But would the tires burst if they were just slightly deflated?

A tire usually holds approximately 35 psi. A good average value for Earth's atmospheric presuure is about 14 psi. So the tire can easily withstand 35 psi pushing out while 14 psi pushes back -- which (when canceling out the atmosheric pressure pushing back) equals a net pressure of 21 psi pushing outwards.

So in the vacuum of space, what if they just deflated the tires to 21 psi? Wouldn't the structure of the tire be able to withstand that 21 psi pushing outwards?

Or am I missing something and my logic is incorrect?

High five on the 'Culture' reference.

Tires are rated for 25.000 miles......

Think they got their use out of them ........

Starman is a sex doll and the trunk was full of freeze-dried Musk DNA.

IS THAT AN ACCEPTABLE ANSWER

That would be a hot pixel. The stars are obviously elongated by the telescope tracking the FH second stage, but the images were then aligned on the stars to make the animation, causing the hot pixel to appear to move. There's no point spread function for it like there would be for a detection of real light by the CCD.

Thanks for the reply! Any comment on the slightly smaller blip on the right side as well? Looks like 3 objects within a certain distance, at least to the untrained eye.

Care to expand on that? I have no clue what you're getting at.

I expected the 3 Stooges to float in space, but they'd have better special effects than this, in the 50's.

This looks much more like a Flash Gordon film, from back in the 30's!


Space flights, simple. Half-decent film of space, very difficult.


It's deja vu, indeed.

You just haven't got a clue life is simple on the flat Earth and so are the believers

Unlike all the believers of Apollo moon landings, who are virtually geniuses!

I'm thinking... Yeah it's gotta be ...

David Bowie passes away,after he asks Elon Musk to place him in a Tesla playing Odyssey all the way to Mars, time capsule attached somewhere in car, trunk maybe, with all the instructions to bring Bowie back to life (cryogenics technology) and return to Earth as the Messiah we've all been waiting for a salivating glimpse of.

There we go right there, Bowie defeated death to become the cartoon Messiah, welcome to the fifth dimension.

Looks like another hot pixel. Here's a primer on point spread function:
en.wikipedia.org...
Hot pixels don't form point spread functions, you can think of it as progressively dimmer pixels the farther you get from the center of the source in the image. Real stars have slightly "fuzzy" edges, even if they're in perfect focus. Hot pixels have sharp edges where the pixel is either "on" or "off."
