Mike,
This says impact probe is on the moon!

Of course NASA devices are aboard..ho ho

Yep! I posted this on page 24 of this thread!
Check out the images beamed back by the MIP and relayed from Chandrayaan on the following pages!

Cheers!

Yeah! Some of us have been here for quite some time with twitching eyes, tapping fingers, palpitating hearts, drunken breaths and squirming ass.....errr... donkeys

carefully picked photographs I think




What?! They must be kidding, please tell me these are the photos from the McDonalds Lunar Orbiter (but then again, even they were clearer, and in focus).

Aye curumba!

*booos*

by far this is the highest resolution pic in my opinion. I have never seen such clear pics... just save those pics and then zoom it you would be surprised, in my opinion each of them seems to be 25 kms above lunar surface.


The images are CGI all the way.


Here are some more CGIs.: Tough call, eh!!

Here is a news snippet

Chandrayaan-1 Probe Lands On Moon
Posted on: Friday, 14 November 2008, 13:25 CST

India’s first unmanned moon mission touched down on the moon on Friday, according to Indian Space Research Organization officials.

The Moon Impactor probe detached itself from the Chandrayaan-1 (moon vehicle) about 100 km from the moon's surface and crash-landed on the south pole of the moon at 10:01 a.m. EST, making India the fourth nation to have a presence on the Moon.

India's flag now on the Moon, only Russia, US, Japan have that !

Japan has a flag on the moon?
Missed that


So now India joins the ranks of the Cosmic Litterbugs... slamming another piece of hardware and scattering it all over the south pole... the one place on the moon most likely to have water.

With all the vehicles slammed and debrs spread all over the moon it will make anomaly hunting obsolete. So much space junk everywhere...

As I said COSMIC LITTERBUGS And they call it 'science' BAH HUMBUG

Pssst... this just in -- The planned "robot" in Chandrayaan-II will be fitted with a cosmic broom to surreptitiously sweep the litter to the nearest litter zone of another space power.

Huh! Are you working for Green Peace? Or Green Peas??!!


A one square foot box scattered over an area of one square km ain't gonna raise the hackles of even die hard environmentalists! So just Chill!

Don't be so sure, I'll bet if green peace hears about it they'll be the first back to the moon, just so they can protest

Japan has a flag because its moon orbiter malfunctioned and crasehd on the Moon in 1993. They has not intended to land any probe on the moon ! Hence we can count Japan out

Ok.. so now the photo-res trial-by-fire begins..

And as for those being poor resolution.. can anyone say with justification that those are not 5m pixel resolution photos..
What altitude were they taken at?

I think we have just got into this pie-in-the-sky attitude with resolutions of photos of the moon..
Anything that we do not 'perceive' to be acceptable to our rudimentary knowledge of cameras and space photography, is immediately labeled as fake or as a big cover up..

Why was that orbiter carrying a flag if it was not supposed to be put on the lunar surface?

the entire Japanese orbiter (spacecraft) malfunctioned and landed on the moon. Every spacecraft carries that country's flag. What India, US, Russia and European Union have done is to land a probe on moon and that probe carries the flag.

because there was no flag on it..It was an imprinted emblem..

Just like there was no flag on the MIP... The 'flag' concept here is just the flag imprinted on all 4 sides.. Hopefully the crash debris fell in a manner that shows at least one of the imprinted flag metal pieces upwards. Otherwise we have a flag looking down onto the moon..

Here's the photograph taken by the MIP, sharpened a bit. The res does seem fairly good, though ISRO as usual have kept us in the dark about the altitude this pic was taken from. The TMC of course would have a much better resolution. The first images are slated to be on the net tomorrow (Monday).



Cheers!

The reason I asked altitude was to try and get a fair judgment of resolution..
How do we know this is not a 5m resolution photo? There is no key/legend to determine actual size of the features photographed.

My concern is that the whole 'aura' generated around '5m res photos' may not be much better than this (and that is not a let down or a bad thing).

Its just that, when the actual 5m res photos do come out, I hope we don't have folks going.. 'oh my home camera can do better than that >> coverup >>CGI >> fake >> didnt go to the moon'..


We had enough of 'poverty >> spend money on the needy first >> shameful' already...
I hope so.. but I predict otherwise!
