A gathering and discussion area for the Hollywood Investigator's (and Weekly Universe's) hugely vast family of readers to gather and discuss the shocking articles in America's favorite family newspapers!!!
Neal Arse-Strong Bwawawawa! Love those shots!! Yup, it was all done in some big factories - hollywood style: back drops, wires, massive lighting, etc. Goofy actors singing and stumbling on the set. Filmed in slow motion. It worked too. Millions of dummies still fall for it all like sheep .. and worse insist it happened and spend hours debating it. Cracks me up.
It's the same gullible m-asses that fell for Dubya Bush's nonsense twice no less.
And are these the best debators on the planet? I feel I'm talking to a grade three class. Someone suggesting the lunar rover was a four door Cadillac? Makes no sense at all then claims to be a professor!
One of the m-asses has way too much time on his hands. A true PAN I guess.
Look the math is simple, you don't need to be a rocket scientist. I'll repeat myself once more just to be clear. There's no way in hell you could get me or anyone with a half-logically-inclined mind to believe cloth behind a ton moving at lightning speed would do anything behind, but disintegrate. You need to go back to physics 101 class and retake it several times until you grasp an object moving so fast the air molecules peel the paint off it OK, that's how fast it's moving - don't belittle that fact, then multiply the weight of the capsule - which is very heavy OK, then with just small portion of brain synapses firing, realize no parachute is gonna do anything on the back of the thing, but disintegrate. Period End. This is not even worthy of debate.
Now God forbid if the parachutes opened and held. Think about it, can you imagine the negative g-force at the moment of instant decceleration?? The sudden jerk from the parachute would make the astronuts eyes pop out of their skull and squash to front of the craft. Everything not welded to the chasis would literally be instantly pulverized. Ask any sky diver what kind of a kick he gets the second his parachute opens .. now multiply that by infinity.
Come come now PANS, you gotta think a bit before you debate, because this parachute issue is extremely laughable much less worthy of a debate - especially from a so-called science major.
Many of us, in fact, did sleep through science FICTION class. ;)
