You know, you amaze me with your input on threads. Seriously.

Great additions to this thread, as well.

You are always ON IT.

Thank you.

(PS: I checked out your profile page... I like how the guy commented on if that was you in the pic etc.). I was chuckling all afternoon. Too Much). And... the "I don't re-" you a funny one for sure.

I saw these on NASA's twitter yesterday, they are amazing!

She looks so pretty just hanging around


It's sad there is only one launch left, I hope I will be there for this one as well. Im calling everyone I know from NASA and the space center. It's time to call in those favors!

If you can actually call some folks up.. Please DO.

Ask them to hold up or wear and ATS sign against a beautiful back drop of--- say earth.

And, see is you can get our names on it.


Seriously though. Let them know they got some awesome fans here.


I'm glad you liked it and not here telling me someone already posted.
hehe

Why are there no stars ?

because of exposure time. try to take a picture of a night sky, you´ll see it (with normal exposure time setting)
If the exposure time is to long, moving objects have a tail, this is the reason why you can´t see stars

the stars are there, they're just too faint to be picked up by the cameras. read the following links, they explain it better than i can ever do.

Can you see stars in space?

Why can't you see stars/galaxies in pictures ...

Nice pictures but I can't figure out what is Groundbreaking about them. Groundbreaking usually means the start fo something new but there really isn't anything new going on there? What am I missing?

There has never before been a picture of the space station with the shuttle docked from a point in orbit away from the station where the whole station can be seen...

...(although that's not entirely true, because people have taken pictures of the space station and shuttle from the ground using telescopes. However, as you would expect, the quality of those photos is not great).

Okay, I guess I just don't see how that is groundbreaking. So everytime something is pictured from a new angle it is now groundbreaking? Sounds like someone is having a slow news day and needed a catchy title.

Now if they can get a picture of a real UFO then that would be groundbreaking!

I'm still wondering why the United States, a leader in Space Exploration, would let their Space Program lapse for 5 years, and, the 2012'ers can argue that it has something to do with that, since the lapse starts shortly before and several after which. It is quite suspicious. Now we have to pay others to hitch a ride or to launch certain cargo.

It REALLY seems like SOMETHING is coming and they know it, but keeping it to themselves. What major power would let their Space Program lapse? It's just absurd.

Nice that is cool, this reminds me.. There is this free space simulator called Orbiter, where you launch off from Kennedy into orbit, dock at the station, undock, reenter the atmosphere and land, etc. Tons of diff missions. Its really cool but VERY hard. Check it out.

and now you are doing the same thing as the others. Common admit it..you are also wondering if the picture is really her.
Admit it that you got the hots for the person in the pic (not sure who the user is a male or a female).

I think profiles are very very misleading.


For all we know, he/she could be a Chinese spy

Nope. I won't admit it. I was just commenting on something I saw on her profile.

What I do like it the ladies putting the big fake contacts over there eyes.

Yes. Thanks NASA for putting some of the tax dollars to good use


I remember 1983 as a kid when I saw an expo from NASA about the space shuttle program.

Time flies and now its already time for the program to be discontinued.

I dare to differ from you statement.

I would say that type of event would be Earth Shaking....

I think it is time to seriously consider the genuity of the whole shuttle program
as presented to the general public.
Below is a post from septemberclues.info which investigates the area of
media fakery.




[quote="reel.deal"][size=150]bad astronomy...

[size=200][color=#BF8040]NASA FAKED A SHUTTLE

IMAGE!!!!!




I didn’t have to think twice. I knew right then and there, NASA was hosting a faked image on their own servers. There was no way this was a simple snapshot of the Shuttle’s interior! All my years as an image analyst, coupled with my long battle-hardened abilities with conspiracies and fakery, told me I was on to something big here. Very big.

Tell me:

Why are there stars in the picture?[color=#FF0000]

First, the cabin lights were on. That means the photo would use a SHORT exposure time and a SMALL aperture, otherwise the bright interior would be overexposed. But there’s no way you could see stars in a photo under those circumstances!
[color=#0000FF]
Second, those interior lights would reflect inside those windows, again drowning out any outside sources. Whenever you see astronauts taking pictures out the windows, they are always RIGHT UP next to the windows, not a few feet away. Why? Because otherwise the reflections block the view.
[color=#00BF00]
Third, and worst, the Earth hangs fat and bright right smack dab in the center of the viewports! The bright Earth could not possibly be exposed correctly and have the photo still show stars in the windows. The Earth is THOUSANDS of times brighter than the stars. Even the Moon would look dull and dim if the Earth were exposed correctly.

There’s only one explanation:

[size=150][color=#FF0000]Someone at NASA faked

the photo!!!
They added in stars later, for what nefarious purposes only the Top Brass at NASA must know. Was this mission faked in some way? Was the whole Shuttle project faked? Does NASA even exist?

Oh God,

This post will cause you

headaches for the next ten

years. I expect to hear

something like “Why even

prominent

skeptic/astronomer and

former NASA employee Phil

Plait has accused NASA of

faking space missions.” I’d

seriously

consider putting “I’m just

kidding, morons!!!” in giant

red blinking letters at the

start of the post.

Endeavour - And the spaced-out NASA efforts- Reel.Deal Posting


It is clear that this thread unearths some serious anomalies and raises some very
serious questions. Please go through it and see if you don't come to the same
conclusions.
Endeavour - And the spaced-out NASA efforts




Was the methodology behind the success of this enterprise (following on from their success in selling the moon landings fakeries to the public), the inspiration behind the incorporation of Video Fakery into the 9/11, Made4TV, Televisual hoax?

Must we always and ever be played for fools?
It sure looks like it!

And that was my first thought too.

For those interested, here's a web page with picture of the shuttle docked to the ISS from back in 2001...
astronet

and another from 2007...
dasmirnov

and one from 2008 with the two slightly separated...
