Reminder that Humans have Flown into Earth Orbit for Over 60 Years

I am sure that many of you have seen sycophantic presstitutes showering undeserved praise of bargain basement Lex Luthor aka Jeff Bezos taking a pathetic suborbital hop into “space”. For those of you too young, or stupid, to remember- humans have been flying (or rocketing) into Earth’s orbit and beyond for over 60 years. Yes.. a child born on same day as the first crewed orbital flight (April 12, 1961) would be two years shy of earliest age they could start collecting social security retirement benefits in USA. Think about that!

Alternatively, the first human spaceflight which resulted in a successful landing on Moon and return to earth took off on July 16, 1969- just over 52 years ago. Also, Apollo 10 (previous mission) which was a test run for Apollo 11 and almost landed on moon took off on May 18, 1969. Similarly, humans were able to soft-land an unmanned probe on the Moon in 1966 and put a rover on the moon in 1970. All of this occurred before the first commercially available CPU (Intel 4-bit 4004) was launched in 1971 and PDP-11 in early 1970. Alternatively, the very first iterations of Unix were tested in 1969-1970 on a PDP-11 and ‘C’ was released in 1972.

    Bezos is Dr. Evil and he even has his own penis-shaped rocket ship. Shaved head too!

    so what you are really saying is that a narcissistic billionaire who short-changes his workers and pays very little in taxes got a “free ride” on the works of others but the press is too dumb to see that?

    Attention earthlings!

    The highest layer of the earth’s atmosphere is the exosphere. It’s furthest extent is 300 miles above earth’s surface. Bezos’s spurt alleged 66 miles above earth’s surface…. about 1/5 of the way to the true “edge of space”. Bezos’s toy is alleged to travel at 3 times the speed of sound (Mach 3). Several military planes travel at Mach 4 or 5. Those velocities have been achieved for decades. Sound travels at slightly less than 767.3 miles per hour. Therefore Bezos ejaculated himself at an alleged Mach 3 which is slightly less than 2,300 miles per hour. The required escape velocity to effectively overcome earths gravitational field for any vehicle no matter how large or how much it weighs is 25,000 miles per hour. Bezos alleges achieving less than 10% of that.

    Escape velocity is mass, size and weight INDEPENDENT. Acceleration rate is the key barrier because any mass (a planet) has a specific gravitational acceleration towards its center. For earth, the acceleration toward center of earth without velocity impaired is 32 feet per second for each second during acceleration (accumulatively increasing 32 feet per second for each second during the duration of acceleration). No matter the size, mass or weight of an object the acceleration due to gravity is the same. Velocity can be impaired like that of a feather falling back to earth being impaired by air density and movement. To accelerate a larger mass for escape, you have to increase thrust force to maintain the acceleration required so you can achieve the velocity of 25,000 mph required. This is all very simple Newtonian physics (which put us on the moon among other feats). The vast majority of people are innocently naive of this. But again, the velocity necessary for any object to effectively escape earths gravitational field into space is 25,000 miles per hour.

    One must escape the earths gravitational field to experience “weightlessness”. Therefore one must travel away from the center of the earth accelerating to a velocity of 25,000 miles per hour to experience weightlessness. It is blatantly self-evident by the numbers Bezos and company are reporting that he in fact could not possibly have achieved weightlessness. They could have achieved SIMULATED weightlessness. The only possible way they could have done that is by “floating” in the capsule while falling back to earth. But that is not weightlessness. It is in fact “weightness”. They were simply being accelerated back toward center of earth by earths gravitational field simultaneously with and inside the capsule just like when an airplane drops or a car comes down from a big bump and you “levitate” out of your seat. The same is practiced at sea level all the time for astronaut and pilot training. Bozo Jizz Toes and Branscum have never experienced real weightlessness. They are full of shit narcissists with too much money for anyone’s good.
