Not Always Science Agency

For a supposed space agency, NASA spends a lot of time looking back at the earth. Or so we're led to believe.


NASA shoots volcano erupting from space.


NASA satellite photos reveal Yellowstone's recovery from fires


Astronauts Photograph Mount Fuji


And shamelessly tries to get in the limelight as the 40 year anniversary of the supposed first man on the moon event approaches.


The lost NASA tapes: Restoring lunar images after 40 years in the vault


And a week ago ballyhooed this pathetic shot as the first picture return from their LCROSS mission.



Now think about this image for a second. They actually released this photograph to the media and it's far worse than those taken fifty years ago by much more primitive technology. I take much better pictures of the moon than this with a cheap camera. LCROSS costs almost $100 million and all it will do is basically take some redundant imagery and then crash onto the lunar surface, ostensibly to "search for water". Which will, if it's there, immediately dissipate into the vacuum because, um, water disappears completely in a vacuum. But we're told the second half of the spacecraft will sort of fly through the debris cloud and see if it has to turn on it's windshield wipers.
Who cares. It's all window dressing anyway.

Yes, the present space program is pathetic. I suspect it's just a front for people still asking questions which the government prefers not to answer.

What we see is a complete and utter scam. The real space program is decades if not hundreds of years in advance of the ancient technology that we're suppossed to cheer on and be happy about. The lies are so massive and pervasive that just to point them out will automatically put you in the loony bin in the eyes of most dullards. Other world bases, extraterrestrial life, time travel, anti gravity, it's all old hat but too dangerous to their control system to acknowledge.
