I do agree with you concerning your belief relative to the color of the spiral, but the point that I am making relies little on the color of the
spiral and more on these 3 issues:
1) We are only privy to pictures of the event so EVERYTHING that an individual professes to be true concerning the spiral is speculation.
2) The evidence that Phage is presenting is correlational evidence only.
CORRELATION DOES NOT EQUAL CAUSATION.
3) My concern is with the shape of the spiral and its consistency. While other rockets might appear to produce a slightly similar spiral shape, none
have produced a shape with consistent equivalent rings in which the smoke does not dissipate similar to a contrail. For that to happen the rocket
would have had to reach, at minimum, the mesosphere which is approximately 170,000 feet above sea level. What kind of rocket can produce that much
I will stand by my original statement, which is this:
The spiral rings are of unknown origin and all estimations are at best probabilities.
I would like to thank everyone on this thread for the mature responses. It is nice to have a debate with a group of individuals without having to
resort to name calling.
My deepest respect to all those involved.
