Could someone do me a favour?

Postby Slippery Jim » Sun Feb 20, 2011 6:24 pm

If someone has posting rights over the road could you pop round to a thread called "Biggest NASA Cover Up Ever - Disk Shape UFO Clearly Examining Hubble" and point out that it is neither a UFO nor a reflection. Its a camera which NASA uses for external examination of equipment and the shuttle's heat tiles.Its called a Flying Eyeball.

I'd do it myself but I'm banned. 8)

NASA's amazing Mini AERCam is ball shaped. This one is oval and identical to the aperture of the HST, including many details. It's a reflection.

Actually, seeing the hi-res photo now, you're right. At first I thought it was a 4:3 aspect ratio photo which had been stretched to appear as a 16:9 image. I wasn't thinking very straight as that would have shortened and widened a sphere. Also, on the hi-res you can see a faint secondary reflection displaced to the right and up of the first.

That'll teach me to post at work before I have a chance to really look at an image. :lol:

I learned something today. Thanks.

Have you noticed how difficult it is to find other pictures of the "flying eyeball"? There is one that looks different. An early model maybe...

It must be a conspiracy. :)

NASA started making these things in 2005 and that is the model I showed. I'm sure they have upgraded them many times since then.

Me too! I knew they had one but had never seen it.

And with that revelation, my reputation as a master nasagrapher is in ruins. oh wait, i didn't have one.. :)

That makes me feel a little better...

I'm afraid i can't be bothered helping ATS in that arena, so I didn't visit.. let them reap what they sow, I say!

The guy/girl that posted this on ATS is a known idiot. They constantly post utter crap, complete with all the necessary CAPITALIZATION and extra punctuation marks!!@!!!!!!>>??????!!!!

This idiot does this all the time, and there is NO WAY things he/she posts can possibly be honestly believed by the poster they are so stupid. But, they bring clicks. ATS is a business and they need more idiots like HumanAlien posting as those threads get the most attention.

I saw the thread when it was originally created. Knowing what a train wreck it was going to be, I didn't bother hanging around. If anything, it's testament to the fact that most of the 'believer' crowd that post this junk have little education and no research skills at all. They basically just make s^~t up! These knuckle draggers demonstrate how much easier it is to walk downhill.

Man, what I would do to have one of those things at my disposal. I know for a fact there's some strippers that live a couple doors down and they tan in the nude in the summer, this would be great.

Mind boggling that the average ATS tard would jump on this as some kind of valid UFO. It's staggering just how deep the ATS dumb factor really runs...
