Yes, plus I'm having really shitty connection or something, it keeps dropping out, buffering, and stuttering even on 144p. Anyone else having that problem? I normally record the launch at 1080p without any problems.

Two more launches this year—if everything goes well, it will add up to a total of 19 missions in 2017, with 100% success rate.

>They get to pretend to put stuff in space, and they don't even have to do it convincingly. Well played!

Yeah, the Stuff is a clever ploy. It's the perfect cover for the humans and human life sustaining cargo that they're actually sneaking up there, and the machines work so well that people doubt it's even happening in the first place. It's the perfect plan!

A testament to the quality of their launch vehicle lighting; it looks too even to be three dimensional, and it perfectly convinces people it's fake. Marvelous engineering!

They don't need to make it look convincing for people to lap this shit up. All that's required is people wanting to believe it's real, and they'll ignore any rational part of their brain that has an opposing view.

Rationalism is the key to sustaining any delusion.

>> No.9369939


That's certainly true if that "rationalism" is purely biased to one side only. True rationalism is about considering all sides without bias, and forming a conclusion based on that.

No private enterprise has gone to space. Richard Branson said he'd be doing tours of the moon in 2014, what's happened to that? Now Musk wants to go to Mars? This is fantasy. What's Musk actually done? Created expensive electric cars and Paypal? Bitch please.

Looks like the Russian Web Brigade's tactics have been ultra successful in getting an online grass roots ignorance campaign started against all western space programs. Remember that the next time you say "NASA is fake!" or "the Earth is flat!" You are being led by the nose.
