Models

For a long time, people thought our solar system revolved around the Earth. Copernicus (or Galileo to some) came around and proved the planets revolved around our Sun.

Models are important - they are the perspective of an individual's perception of any given event. Models are always biased, but the objective should be to choose a model with the least bias possible.

How is this achieved?

Scrutinize opposing aspects, think critically, and have an open mind.

"All Truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

- Arthur Schopenhauer

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.

Military gives NASA two space telescopes more powerful than Hubble


This one is ABSOLUTELY ABSURD/RIDICULOUS/LUDICROUS.


Repost from Kerry Cassidy's blog

Quote from the article: "For an agency credited with some of the most incredible technological innovations in human history, the revelation that two more powerful Hubbles even existed must have been a complete shock, especially considering that the Bush administration less than a decade ago almost cut NASA’s funds for a crucial Hubble repair mission.

Then they really dropped the bomb: Since the Pentagon never got around to using the telescopes, they figured NASA might be just the place to offload the old hardware."


Wow, I had no idea NASA with her fleet of world class scientists and engineers not only couldn't afford a decent telescope (nor could they build one). But instead they have to rely on THE PENTAGON hand-me-downs, several years old in order to 'scan the sky'. 

Incredible.

Not to mention, that this ludicrous article PLANTED as it is appears to be a build up toward a disclousre whereupon no doubt NASA will "suddenly" now be able to SEE PLANTE X / THE DARK STAR / SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES in the sky whereas in the past they certainly couldn't do so because they didn't have the several years old telescrope from the PENTAGON (their wealthy cousins)...

Thank God or I mean "the Pentagon".  Now we can all sleep at night.  What with Hubble supposedly no longer operational.  Right.

WTF?!?

Gimme a break.




 Although America’s space agency has perpetually seen its funding threatened and reduced in recent years, few would argue that the nation’s defense agency, the Pentagon, suffers from the same problem.

That disparity is so great that Pentagon official dialed up NASA last year and revealed that the National Reconnaissance Office had secretly developed not one, but two space telescopes more powerful than Hubble, adding that the military just didn’t bother to deploy them.

Pentagon officials didn’t say what they’d planned to use the telescopes for, and NASA officials told The New York Times that they were in “bits and pieces,” lacking key parts. They’re also designed to be shorter and wider than Hubble, giving them a much wider field of view.

NASA said it is preparing to re-purpose the telescopes to boost their studies of dark matter, which currently sits atop the National Academy of Sciences’ priorities list.

The National Reconnaissance Office refused to offer any comment on the story.
