Hey HA. There was a pretty large thread on this a few days ago. Will try to find it. There was a lot of information contained in that thread. Most dealt with the fact that the person who created this vid admitted that he made some adjustments to the nasa pics. Not saying that he did anything wrong. I will try to find the other thread. Maybe someone else can find it before me. Not to good at using the search feature on here.
Ok I see someone found it.edit on 1/28/2011 by VeniVidi because: (no reason given)
The science data collected by the STEREO spacecraft are written to the on-board recorder, which is then read out and transmitted to the ground during daily telemetry tracks using the NASA Deep Space Network. These data are of much higher quality than the beacon data, but take several days to reach the STEREO Science Center website. Thus, the most recent images on the STEREO Science Center browse tool will always be beacon images. These temporary beacon images are replaced with the full-quality versions as they become available, generally about 2-3 days later.
A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position. To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by substituting it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the "straw man"), and refuting it, without ever having actually refuted the original position.
