Quote# 3804

The equations & physics used by NASA to launch satellites & interplanetary probes are identical to the equations derived from a geocentric universe. All are planned & executed on the basis of a FIXED EARTH! They do not use the Copernican System! You can confirm this with them & the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration in Washington DC!

Sorry, but I have better things to do than to investigate every wacky conspiracy theory.

I call bullshit.

Just on hunch, I could see them doing the calculations for satellites with the earth as reference point instead of the sun but for interplanetary routes?

hmm..I can understand it if you consider the lauching place as a fixed position..but honestly, they cant get good coordinates unless they calculate the rotations of our planet and all other planets. Personally, Im glad you arent on their planning comission..unless they hired you as a clown for a birthday party.

Yeeeeaaaahhhh, sounds like they base their calculations on a construct in which fixed is NOT the same thing as geocentric. In physics, you always select the most practical reference frame. But it's just that: an arbitrary reference frame. It does not make any statement about the fundamental structure of the larger system in which you have placed your frame.

All planets are connected to Earth by strings that are attached at the West Pole. Just hook up your probe to the right string, and it's on its way!

Mmmhmm, that's right, dude. How very clever of you to catch on...

If something is orbiting the earth, then a geocentric system, using the mas of the earth, would be right. If, however, you're charting a path to another planet, you would have to go with the heliocentric system, and use the mass of the Sun to calculate an orbit.

How very appropriate for you to post your comments at Bad Astronomy.

Caustic Gnostic: So that's what string theory means!

'Bad Astronomy' indeed.

...and is that you, ?!
