Conspiracy Theory Thread

Whatsisname: I will allow you one more post to present your or a team-member's solutions to the questions I posed. Well this will likely be my last post then, which is a shame, especially considering all the work FFT has put in, and the other responders too. Much interesting stuff, and I am always e...

6706 And yes, the ISS is orbiting withing the atmopsphere, much thinner up there, but sufficient if my theory is correct that when looking through that deep column of it towards the stars from the ISS, enough for the shorter, invisible light to be converted to visible Justify your claim with a quan...

Mosfet The fact is, there are photos taken from cameras aboard the ISS of the Sun that someone also linked. Are you implying that ISS is orbiting into the atmosphere? No, don't answer that . I will answer that. Photos from the ISS taken while looking TOWARDS Earth are no proof that the Sun is visibl...

Conspiracy Theory Thread

Well, if I am going to be a conspiracist, I may as well go all the way. I claim the Sun nor anything else is visible from Cislunar space, from outside of the Earth or Lunar atmosphere, as it is an atmosphere that creates visible light. The only people who know what the view is like from Cislunar spa...

Well, thanks for your lengthy reply FastFourierTransform, I'm always pleased when someone takes the time to respond, even if it is only to insult me! With an alternative model of just what is going on out there as far as visibility of the heavens, I certainly expect and indeed welcome challenges, th...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Watsisname: What I don't understand is why you make claims without doing any research first. Find me an image from any of thise so called visible light telescopes. The Hipparcos instrument was not a regular camera connected to a telescope, and plus, you will not find any pretty photos from it, just ...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Maybe because USA is about the only nation that can afford pouring billions of dollars into making one? I am  told that a large Celestron 'scope would perform  almost as well as Hubble, cameras are relatively cheap, India can put things in space pretty cheaply, so where's the Billon$ come from? Sun...

Science and Astronomy Questions

XBrain130: air isn't capable of magically doing that conversion. UV is almost completely blocked by it. And what happens to that blocked UV? It doesn't just disappear, conservation of energy. Some molecules in the upper atmosphere will emit IR for up to 5 minutes when struck by UV, so in effect is b...

Where is the edit button?
In my previous post it should read "what we now call UV and up", not "not".

6316 No, Huibble was not designed to do that. Sorry, I forgot to place a comma where it counts, but Hubble obviously is a multi-purpose mission. Could you please post a reference about Herschel's point of view you cited in your first post, I can't find any source. In this case,  radiant heat will a...

Science and Astronomy Questions

There are plenty of images of the Sun taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and by several missions which had precisely the Sun as a primary target, covering the spectrum from infrared emissions to high energy X-rays and visual lightwaves as well. No, Huibble was not designed to do that. SOHO can ima...

Science and Astronomy Questions

I was reading about William Herschel the astronomer, and he believed that it was only Earths atmosphere that made the stars, planets and even the Sun visible from Earth, and that outside of an atmosphere of sufficient density and composition, nothing is visible, and that even the heat we feel is gen...
