A. These Anti-American vs. Europe side fights are destructive and childish. I imagine we all have similar interests and hopes being on this board. Somehow we prick each other and turn into little "W"'s, or the European elites -- its nuts - that isn't getting anyone anywhere

B. Anyone who thinks Europe "has more satellites than America" is my friends seriously misinformed.

"Europe" is not not really even a member of the club:

In January there were 872 satellites in orbit and 443 or 50.8% were from the U.S. - No other country has more than 90.
Russia has 85 (9%), China has 40 (4%), Japan 35 (3%), China 11 leaving about 44% of all satellites to be shared by Canada (the biggest remainder with 11, Israel, India etc.) If we count every European country as "Europe" we might reach a number that is over 1/2 the satellites that the U.S. has - but not much more than that ... the statement that "most are from Europe" is such an obvious and patent falsehood that it smells of (red) herring.


[edit on 11-5-2008 by Landru]


What are European countries if they are not European ? Americans


Need to get over yourselves - have been thinking so much about how great you are you forget your only one of many - pfft! Got your arses kicked by one of the poorest counties on earth - have never one a major engagement - and yet bang on about their prowess -

May I remind you that the EU GDP which does not include all of Europes countires is significantly higher than the U.S.

Your not that good kids - Euopre is richer, smarter, and waaaay more powerful. One day you will stop thinking about yoursleves long enough to realise there are other regions - most are more powerful - ASIA, Europe, THEN America -

I think McDonalds is sort of a blackhole xD


but yep, really wondering what i will be.

if they confirm the discovery of another planet in our solarsystem it supports the 2012 theory. wondering wondering...

Wheeh...
Stop this Ego thing. And Audas , you're now acting exactly the same way as americans have been doing for decades.
Stopping saying who's more superiour or whatever. it's not important anymore. and especially not in this place. where most people are respecting and helpful persons.

There is a lot to change.

the American ego is shrinking, doesn't mean that we Europeans should be acting tough. so please don't do that. the financial crisis is enough pain in the ass already. for every side.

MEDIA ADVISORY : M07-107 NASA to Announce Contractor for Ares I Upper Stage Production WASHINGTON - NASA will host a news conference at 4 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Aug. 28, to announce the selection of a contractor for the upper stage element of the Ares I rocket that will help launch future human missions to the moon. The Ares I will carry to low Earth orbit the Orion crew exploration vehicle, which will succeed the space shuttle as NASA's primary vehicle for human space exploration.
---------------------------------

Sorry, I couldn't help myself, I just pulled this off of some old nasa announcement. (I wasn't going to add anything to this cut and paste but I didn't want to get run out of town.
the point I guess is that I'm not expecting anything much bigger than to announce some guy got a job with a screwdriver.

I expect nothing spectacular.

Probably that they have indirectly detected a black hole. Any one with a brain realizes there is at least one at the center of at least every spiral galaxy which ours happens to be one of.

sigh

You really should see this age of the dragon story. When it comes to our sun and 2012 its bizzare!

As for it being a black hole. I am pretty sure they have found lots of those already havent they? Not 100% sure on that but I think they have.

Lets Play The Guessing Game.

1. They said it's something they've been looking for for 50 years. I'm guessing it would be another planet.


2.my be planet X or alien life?

3. earthbound asteroid.

4.Could be a black hole?

5 .Might be a photo of a planet outside the solar system?

6. my be NASA found the youngest supernova ever in our galaxy.

7. (Or it might be this) MEDIA ADVISORY : M07-107 NASA to Announce Contractor for Ares I Upper Stage Production WASHINGTON - NASA will host a news conference at 4 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Aug. 28, to announce the selection of a contractor for the upper stage element of the Ares I rocket that will help launch future human missions to the moon.

i am hopping it will be number 2

As a matter of fact, astronomers recently made public they found an earth-like planet. just 1 and a half times the size of Earth and with general temperature of 40 degrees celsius, which ofcourse makes liquid water possible.

In fact i thought it is posted in this thread with an article.

i believe that it could be a planet that may possibly have alien life. it is also possible SETI has found a message and sent it to nasa to conform it

Why? because NASA has people specialized in Alien languages?

Come on guys, this alien life speculation has no use because NASA would never let us officially know what we already know. If they would, they would have done it already.

New mission? have you even read the story? they have found something they were searching for since NASA was established 50 years ago.

Hmmm......hmmmmm..............ahem. For quite a while now, I have been coming to ATS (without an account) simply to browse through the articles and threads in order to see what my fellow like-minded man and woman postulate regarding the current situation in the world (which all of us know on some level will blow up in our collective faces like a hand basket full zombie war kittens). During this time, I have read a great many interesting ideas, thoughts, and opinions on a variety of subject matter....and some not-so-great; however, I have noticed one thing in common with around 90% of every thread: someone ALMOST ALWAYS starts a fight/squabble/bicker. Why? Why waste time and energy responding to someone whom is being hatefully belligerent? I am not coming from this direction in a "Holier-Than-Thou" attitude; I am simply bumfuzzled over some people's lack of intellectual humility and respect for others and am asking an honest question. Why? STOP BEING LIKE FASCIST ELITISTS! Ahem....now that I have had my little "Welcome Myself to ATS Party".....
If one pays attention to the statement that NASA published, one can come to the conclusion that the object in question is:


1. Very, very important (at least to them) as they have been looking SPECIFICALLY for this 'thing' around 50 years. Y'know, like "Shhhhhhh....be wery, wery quiet its wabbit season" important.

2. Puts out a decent amount of some form of radioactive energy due to the mention of Chandra. (A decent amount being the object more than likely has the capacity to rip/burn/melt/explode all of the molecular bondings currently holding your physical body intact in some way. I imagine that would be quite painful).

3. Is fairly large (compared to our sense of size, not the Universe's).

4. Not alien-life as they clearly said OBJECT.

So, now, what in Space has characteristics of those four things?

1. A star.

2.A planet or planet like object (meaning a big friggin' radioactive rock).

3.Dark Matter/Dark Energy "concentrations" (i.e. A BLACK HOLE....or a war kitten....oh, wait, that's a form of life you say? You mean HELL-SPAWN IS ALIVE?!)

We can automatically rule out a star as you would be pretty stupid to miss a GIGANTIC BALL OF SUPER-HEATED GAS AND BASIC ELEMENTARY MATTER...and if there is one thing ANY institution in this world ISN'T, it is stupid (no matter how to the contrary they appear to be at any given point in time). So, we are left with basically a giant rock or black hole. Now, since they said WITHIN OUR GALAXY and NOT WITHIN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM it cannot be:

1. A new planet in OUR solar system

2.A black hole in our solar system (because we would be DEAD way before now).

So, based on logical deduction we are left with a planet/comet fairly close to us, or dark matter/dark energy/ a black hole fairly close to us.

Class, this is called the logical process of the left-side of the human brain. Learn it. Live it. Be it. While it maybe almost completely useless in the quest for Enlightenment, it does a damn good job of figuring stuff out down here.

*Note: Anything in this post was not meant to offend anyone, but to entertain and add to the conversation; if it has been the cause offence, I am sorry my viewpoints, lack of knowledge, or lack of etiquette has conflicted with the emotional master the English Language deems 'Ego' that Western Culture seems so fond of being ruled by. Also, if something I have said is FACTUALLY wrong, please inform me of the error as we are here to teach each other and learn from each other (here being the forums, not here as in Earth and Alive...I wouldn't dare reveal the Mystery of Life until I get some gold from you people....just like all the other....'gurus' out there. I am not here to squabble

According to space.com (link below) its actually baryonic matter. Well the missing part anyway.
For those who hav'nt the time or the inclination to read the entire article heres a quick run down...

Baryonic matter is apparently the 4% of the universe that we can actually see, stars, planets etc basically everything made up of protons, electrons and neutrons which are also known as baryons.It seems up until now we could only find about half of the baryonic matter but we've now found part of the other missing half in the form of a bridge-like filament connecting two clusters of galaxies. The fact that it only emits far-ultraviolet and X-ray radiation would tie in with the NASA announcement that its something to do with the Chandra x-ray observatory although the article reports this new stuff was found with the XMM-Newton x-ray observatory so maybe the announcement is actually something seperate ??
Also the wording NASA use on there website:-
"NASA has scheduled a media teleconference to announce the discovery of an object in our Galaxy astronomers have been hunting for more than 50 years.

Thers something about the word "object" that still leaves me with hope that it is something else much more exciting than this...

In the words of Carl Sagan - "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be know"

Well done!
Keep posting!

I also heard via Canadian sources that the baryonic issue was a likely subject. I suppose we shall see.
