I'm really not buying the "its a failed missile" story. I mean I have never seen a missile leave a blue trail like that. My guess is that it is some type of non-nuclear space based weapon. But then again maybe it is a missile that uses ion-propulsion. Either way very odd and I will continue to monitor the issue.

First off, to believe the Russian's claim that a missile was tested and succeeded,
*IT FAILED* read the long thread?
you would have to assume that the Russians never lie (that no government ever lies), that the Russians are going to tell the world all about their secret technology, etc.... in all likelihood, from past experience, the world should not believe what Russia says in the media, especially about it's weapons and defense.
*before russia said it was them it was speculated to be a rocket*
Secondly, that spiral stayed around for a long time (and the one in China 20 years ago, stayed around for 5 hours according to official China report), and clearly the radials from the spiral were not smoke because they retained their shape for a long time, going around many times as the spiral grew larger. No, this was more likely a plasma discharge of some sort, given it's particular characteristics.
*The spiral DID NOT stay around for a long time* (read the long thread? watch the videos?) Please give its 'particular characteristics' of being a plasma. The rocket was in high altitude making it retain its shape alot easier (Again READ THE FREAKING THREAD)
Thirdly, the recordings that were made included sound, and we do not hear any sound from this event. I have listened to many other videos of missile and rocket launches, and they all had a roaring sound as the missile ascended. This phenomenon was silent.
(This observed phenomenon was seen a long ways away from where the rocket was launched off a boat) (again read the thread)
Fourthly, in the center of the spiral, a hole opened up at a fairly fast rate, and the hole was perfectly round (at least visually it appeared to be). This seemed to happen once the source of the spiral was terminated.
The source being the rocket running out (READ THE THREAD THIS LITERALLY HAS ALL BEEN COVERED ALREADY) you are a broken record
Fifthly, the bottom corkscrew was blue in color, and then at the top of the blue corkscrew is where the flat spiral formed, which was white. If this was a missile, you would not see a flat spiral, but a continuing cone, which you do not see.
The rocket had 3 separate stages (READ THE THREAD)
You are the one who says to get the facts first, then you can distort them, but it seems to me that you simply pulled up an article where the Russian government (known for its deception) says it shot a missile on the night in question. In any court that would be circumstantial evidence, since the presence of a missile does not mean this phenomenon had anything to do with that... I mean for all we know the Russians shot a missile at the spiral, trying to destroy it, and now they are trying to cover things up. I mean, I do not believe that testing ICBM's is something they should be doing, given the various test-ban treaties in place, and I HIGHLY doubt they would do it twice in a week, once in Norway and once in Russia.
It seems you should get your facts first before accusing phage who is way more knowledgeable then you (becasuse you haven't read the thread) there were warnings a day prior to missile launch (RTT-Read the thread)
At any rate, you post this one line post (excluding the link), and you state IT WAS, IT WAS, IT WAS, as if you have 100% certainty on the matter, and from my scientific, logical, trained mind, I don't see at all where you have made any kind of case.
The whole thing lasted just under one minute and then spiral in the sky collapsed, leaving it in a dark, circular "hole" in the night sky.

Yes, I do remember when D4rk Kn1ght was on here and the strange predictions he made, and how he got the usual "treatment" by people here, etc. It will be interesting to see how things develop over the next months. To say the least, we are living in exciting times... terrible and spectacular at the same time...

Okay how about putting forth evidence and proof out there instead of just spouting a bunch of stuff trying to call all us ignorant. That would be really helpful to state your case. Right now you are just talking a bunch of non-sense that has no bearing on reality.
