This is staged!!!

There is a reason why the one guy packed his stuff, avoided giving the other guy a high five and walked out mad.... not a reaction you'll see from someone that just acomplished something positive..

He's probably thinking " we keep lying to these people about what we're doing, this is horrible... i'm ashamed of myself for keeping the truth from the rest of the world"...

we need to find out who that is and interview him! I bet he's got some stories to tell about our ET friends...

I'm not too surprised nothing happened, actually quite relieved.

NASA tried to do this b4, they actually tried to explode an atomic bomb on the moon...it didn't work...ET intervention?

I think that's what happened here, too.

Yahoo news is calling NASA out with them not showing live pictures as promised


From the news story:
Yahoo


"This is so cool," said Jennifer Heldmann, coordinator for NASA's observation campaign. "We're thrilled."


This is a say day for the American taxpayer.

Nasa cuts the video just before the impact, switches from infrared to visible spectrum because of the multiple flashes (could it have been the moon defense system shooting at the missile?)

The pixelated 'impacts', if there were any, could simply have been the missile being blown up or rendered unusable.

Maybe the impact wasn't so spectacular, maybe they did hit a dry hole but still, I know a lot won't believe them when they release the private data which probably will be edited and obfuscated.

Why are there people who say that high res color cameras are not as good as low-res cameras that shoot black and white? We're seeing low-res black and white visible spectrum cameras at work along with the infrared camera.

I'm in hell.

That's a GREAT idea. Anyone here know where we can find a list of NASA employees?

The employee bios page is down. www-pao.ksc.nasa.gov...

Catch this man today and we'll know the truth!! I will guarantee it, this man knows something that he just wants to yell out!

Funny how the employee link is not working...

What if there was an impact but it was somewhere else and they just wanted people to be looking elsewhere.
But to be honest by looking at them NASA people they where acting strange all we can do is speculate but to me somethings just not right.

THANKYOU

Apparently NASA has no idea what the moon is made of or the consistency of it ether. If they did they would not have been saying it would make a plum of any size. So it falls back to did man ever really set foot on the moon?

I saw a Gray in a lunar minivan racing to the left just before impact.
Maybe he was fishing in that lunar lake?
I'm going to find my own 36 inch telescope.
How much are they?

Good luck with that. I'm assuming you are referring to the observatory grade equipment? Millions.

If you are speaking of a telescope you can get at wally-world, it isn't powerful enough to observe anything of note on the moon.

Even the observatory grade scopes can't determine much of anything on the moon other than serious geographical features... like large mountains and craters.

All of the main news sites said it was a bomb and bye bye to the moon. Complete oblivious citizens of our society! There should be a supervisor correcting that type of reporting. Space is over looked now a days and it's so sad. People only care about Jon and Kate Plus 8.


Many of the headlines may have characterized it as a bomb to grab your attention--hopefully the articles and reports had the correct information: that it was a spent Centaur booster. I agree with you, sometimes (often?) the sensationalism obscures the actual information. Unfortunately, for all of the hype of a plume and ejecta, it was a bomb (result that fell flat). We'll see in a month or so what the data reveals.

Can someone post the video everyone is talking about, with the guy who quickly packs up his stuff. The only vid I have seen is a short celebration where the fat flight director stands up, claps...in way of as if he is forced to like theres a prompter saying "clap now you drone!" I want to see this guy pull a slick rick and not high give a high five...someone please enlighten me.

I already figured out how to get rid of the distortion from the
Earths atmosphere.
I will surround my 36 inch telescope with 300 high power green lasers.
I saw that trick in Sky and Telescope magazine.

I'll install it just north of Flagstaff, Arizona. - Dark Skies -
If i can hook it up to the internet maybe a could sell time
to registered users. Hmmmm......how much do i charge?

I totally agree. This is what I was thinking... If they want to see if there is water. Why not fly some people to the moon. We did it way back then, should be very easy for them now.


Uhh infinitely more cost prihibitive than lobbing a chunk of metal into it.

And people would scream at the waste of money, just as they are now.

Oh the insanity - "They're going to bomb the moon, blow it up, what about the moon people, this is a waste of money, what are they hiding!" becomes "They didn't even make a dent, not a cloud, maybe it was the moon people, this is a waste of money, why didn't they just send people?"



I love this place at 7am on a saturday. Friday night has still yet to catch up with me and it's funny.

Here's a pretty good summary care of Universe Today:

www.universetoday.com...

The Centaur impacted the Moon as planned, but the visible results were less than spectacular. Luckily the instruments and sensors aboard the shepherd probe worked well and much data was collected. It will take at least a month or so to analyze the data. Reports aren't expected before December.

Images have not yet been released from all of the assets viewing the impact.

Forget 36 inch. Check out the 200 inch telescope image at
Palomar Observatory.
Palomar Observatory - Wow!

what was the piont in this mission ???????


To determine if there is sufficient water in areas on the moon to enable future missions based on the moon.

Not to make a thrilling tv show.

THo this was a rather anti-climax moment.

Ahh thanks for that - I just watched the youtube footage on page 10 and saw what people were talking about, and it sounds like the mission was a success afterall if they did indeed get the intended readings from the plume.

Now it's back to where I was in another thread, experts swaying opinion from one extreme to the other, then everyone else concluding their own opinions from that!

Be an interesting few months for those who keep watching I guess!



Here's hoping that the data collected shows what they hope for and that we one day see ourselves actually based on the moon, opening the door to regular space travel.

The sea was once limited to men wearing water tight suits, connected with hoses to ships above, allowing them to breath. Then we developed self contained underwater breathing apparatus. Now we have public 'underwater worlds' where we can all go.

I'm waiting for the day space is the same. This is a good step !
