View Full Version : Another NASA hoax?

And they would have you believe this is Mars?

It's sludge and sand and sea-weed at ebb-tide somewhere off the Dutch coast.

Just look at it, and you can almost smell it.
And look at the horizon... FLAT.

Geologically speaking, that Marscape hasn't seen the erosive effect of liquid water in ...... Eons?

Yep it's another hoax we've actualy been there since the sixtes.
Mars landing (

But they don't want you know it. Oops got to dash the Black Omegas have arriv..............

Yes clearly another NASA hoax but no where near as audacious as the famous Falklands War hoax, all filmed on the back lot at Pinewood studies and financed by the re-elect Maggie fund of the Daily Express.

Astonishingly even some of the subscribers to this forum actually believe that they were involved in a real war at the time -- all down to some damn fine minature work by the sadly missed Derek Meddings and the genius of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.

And the picture they didn't want us to see......

------picture deleted--------

had to remove it... they made me...

26th May 2008, 17:32
This is the one they really don't want you to see.

here it is again.....

Another NASA what were the others then ?

Just asking....a perfectly innocent question :hmm: :E

26th May 2008, 19:21
Being serious for a minute - to do that was a magnificent achievement. Whether or not the money could have been better spent on earth, those guys deserve a pat on the back for making it happen.

"Looks like the beach at Weston Super Mud with the tide out....."
You may well be right. Seen any suspicious characters around recently?

Been there, done that. Try to keep this topic serious, please?

Krystal n chips,
"Another NASA what were the others then? Just asking....a perfectly innocent question."
Innocent, yeah right.
You know perfectly well.
It all started with "Apollo", filmed in Area 51.
I won't go into all the other ones... but it seems somebody at NASA got to keep the sandbox where they did the Viking pictures.

this is how they did it :8

at the end i shows exactly where :hmm:

** for those who dont like waisting time: is just a music videoclip **

It doesn't look a bit like Weston, or maybe it's the wrong time of year ;)<hidden>

26th May 2008, 21:06
I don't believe in NASA.


26th May 2008, 21:17
And yet we still have unbelievers....

26th May 2008, 21:22
hehe... is cool aint it :E

and yes, i love that band not just that song :cool:

if interested in the song is in english aswell if someone wants to know what it says

My question is : Why did they name the planet after a chocolate bar ??

and it actually does indeed MR HH:eek:

They keep it next to the shuttle in Florida.

Never mind the chocolate or the tinfoil hats, I want to know where the

Ok she's from Sheffield really but she worked at Mars!

She looks Russian..............

27th May 2008, 14:33
She's in a hurry I'll give you that, but Russian?

The Q36 was replaced several years ago, Pinky. It was discovered that the primary processing core was failing to complete its interface with the static modules. All Q36s were immediately retired and the current Eisenard Margilators took their place. So far they have performed perfectly with the only problem thus far discovered being a very minor one where the arrangement of the refractive elements has resulted in small but visible aberrations across the face of the converters. Since this has no real effect on efficient operations, they have been left in place and allowances made for the minute error margin.

Whassa matter? Tinfoil hat too tight...?
Could also be a case of his using crunchy rather than the more efficient smooth peanut butter, Rusty. :E

She does bear a remarkable resemblance to Harriet Harman... can we send her into space instead?

27th May 2008, 20:59
Jeez, they can't wait to drop their litter all over the solar system, can they....?

And now that you mention it, the surface does look suspicioucly like coffee grinds.

We all know the Moon is green cheese (Stilton or Roquefort? I think we should be told)..
So Mars is coffee grinds.

NASA should move on to the next planet.

Here is one vote for Hoax . . .

"Technically, there is NO reason for these live images to not be in color except for one major reason - people will realize that Mars isn't red after all, but it has a blue sky almost identical to that of Earth . . .."

28th May 2008, 00:36
Right. The images from Mars were sent (from the Phoenix via Odyssey) to Australia. We saw them here in Canberra before anyone else even got a look-in. This project has been tracked by our people at Tidbinbilla and the monitoring will continue for the next few months.

Now, some people out there may be so gullible as to believe it's all a hoax but there's no way in hell yer average Aussie is going to be persuaded to sit quietly and say nothing while NASA amuses itself by playing practical jokes on a handful of naive people.

28th May 2008, 01:45
think they named it that way so it wouldn't be that hard to spell, like uranus.. only 4 letters.. M A R S! :ok:

28th May 2008, 02:57
Always thought it odd to name a planet after a body part. Then again, there is the monumental Sphincter in Egypt. :E

28th May 2008, 05:12
Technically, there is NO reason for these live images to not be in color ...Technically, Eboy, there are several very good reasons for the images to be in black and white but unless you are either a photographer or an astronomer, it is unlikely that you would appreciate either why this is done or the difference it makes when accuracy is a priority.

Here are a couple of the reasons; many of these images are produced in stereo in order that scale of objects in relation to surroundings can be more accurately determined. Since we know the size of Mars, we can use the tiny portion of horizon that we can see (and yes, it IS curved but that is not apparent from the tiny fragment of it that we have seen on the images) to determine size and relative positioning. This is best achieved by using stereo imagery ... and stereo images are best produced in black and white.

As with nearly all astronomy-related photography, the images are greyscale for accuracy and filters are used to determine colour. In fact, this is the way your own digital camera works, the sensor is monochrome and the colours are produced by placing the appropriate filters "in front of" it.

Also, the transmission of black and white images is much simpler than the more complex requirements for colour. Given that the data need to travel a long way, and the potential for a degraded signal is quite significant, there is less chance of a corrupted image arriving than if colour was used. It is so easy to colour-correct afterwards that there is simply no need for colour images to be transmitted.
