Place your bets, people.
Will it be delayed, blow up, crash on landing, or work perfectly.
Or, if the comments on NASA's facebook-page are true and space is just a carped made by the government to fool us for some reason and rockets dont work in vacuum, what will happen?

i shit you now, those comment sections are full of people rambling on about how everything from how Apollo was fake to the Van Allen belts being gods way of stopping people from leaving.

At sea? No. If it was on land, yes.
I think the landing software does not have the necessary discretion to account for sea movement.

Computer syncs to electrical syncs to mechanical and syncs to chemical systems.......... err no.
>>
>>7779087
well, both of the times they tried at sea the rocket was spot in placement-wise, but crashed due to mechanical failures. so i have hope

At least on 4chan you know everyone is fucking stupid when going in.

My personal favorite was that no satellites have ever been launched except for the space shuttle and ICBM reentry vehicles because they're the only craft with a strong enough TPS to melt through the glass holding the air in.
>>
Generally space brings out the worst conspiracy theorists. It seems to combine the most absurd concepts, such as lizardmen and Venusians controlling the government, with a complete failure to understand astrophysics, with such things as the Lucifer project and the electric universe.
>>
>>7779376
always fun to see people try to explain basic physics to someone who refuse to believe that rockets can work in a vacuum.
>>
>>7779334
but wont that make the air leak out? thus suffocating us?
>>
>>7779473
Bullshit rockets can work in a vaccum. What do the thrusters even push off of? There's nothing behind the rocket.

>inb4 DA FIYAAH PUSHED DA ROKET FORWARD XDDD
Retarded. I bet you tards believe your diarrhea can propel you too.

Yes, yes I do.

seeing as India has a space program, yes.

>>7779477
Space is so hot that the glass remelts and flows to seal the hole made by the shuttle.
>>
>>7779617
makes perfect sense really. But how does the engines on the shuttle burn through the glass if they are on the back of the shuttle? surely it would just fly straight into the glass dome?
>>
>>7779598
Kek'd hard.
>>
Could very easily be delayed. Other than that, I think it's most likely to work perfectly and land successfully.

SpaceX hasn't been repeating mistakes. Based on what they've done so far, I see no reason to believe that their recovery method is unreliable.

It is like those flat earth people. Don't mention that you can personally buy a weather balloon and attach a gopro and gps to it and let it float up so you can see the actual earth, providing it gets high enough. They sorta flip out.

Voting is made for those people specifically.

I love those "fisheye lens" people. Such as the ISS having 24/7 livestream cams on the outside, showing earth and parts of the station.
Whenever someone yells out fisheye lens, they seem to struggle explaining how all the station-parts dont bend/distort in the same way as the earth supposedly does.
>>
>>7779072
NASA should fuck with them by saying it's all true

but fisheye lenses do make things look spherical

I find the way conspiracy-people think to be quite interesting. The ability to dismiss mountains of data that contradict their beliefs, claiming "false" or simply just basking in their inability to grasp basic physics. The idea that a person making badly edited youtube-clips about radiation is somehow a more reliable source than almost every person with a degree in that field(ref Van Allen belts) and so on.

And on a side-note, what about doomsday-people?
>I have calculated that Apophis will destroy earth on date xx.xx.xx. You will all die. All NASA says is lies. Garble garble garble
And when that date passes, and we are still here, the idea that they might have been mad/crazy/wrong never seems to cross their minds.
>>
>>7780403
In the early 1980s, when I was a kid, I used to stand on a ladder and spray water into the air, in front of me, with the sun to my back. I was able to see a full circular rainbow if the ladder was high enough and I sprayed the mist around in a wide enough area. You had to do it near midday, but not quite midday.

Of course, no one else could see it because they were not on the ladder and wouldn't come up to try it. I was branded a "liar!" ever since.
>>
>>7780454
The same thing is done by religious people. It is nothing at all new to humanity and is ridiculously wide spread.

I wonder what evolutionary purpose it serves or if it is a byproduct of the lack of natural selection whereby the trait would have died out had there not been so much care giving in modern society?

I wonder if the guys at NASA responsible for running that facebook-page ever get depressed/tired of reading those comments. Or maybe they just dont care?

I feel the same way about socialism-spewing liberals and their propensity to refuse history.
