Space: Earth’s City Lights And A Tour Of The ISS Space Station

Here is a nice Masonic view of Earth at night, followed by a tour of the International Space Station. Let’s look at some of the orbital mechanics, shall we? The ISS is about 400 km away from Earth. It is in a stationary orbit, but it is way too low for geo-synchronous orbit (35,000 km). The Earth spins at 1,000 miles per hour. The ISS is moving at 17,500 miles per hour. Do you see a problem here yet?

So, Masonic boy is telling us how he can’t stay by the windows showing Earth for very long, because he has a lot of science to do. Yet apparently he has plenty of time to give us a long tour of modules, cluttered walls and wiring. It is very fascinating to watch Masonic boy showing us an orange ball that looks like its out of Star Wars, a globe of Earth because every Space Station needs to be reminded that Earth is a globe, and then he tumbles head over heels a couple of times. That’s science! He even states that they do a lot of ‘science stuff’ although he never shows us any actual science, but he does show us a lot of props.

Oh, and then there is this:

ISS completes its orbit around Earth in just 90 minutes with the relative speed of 17,500 miles per hour or 28,000 km per hour. Interesting thing is, the crew gets 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours. – Israr Ul Haq, comment on Quora

The picture of Earth lights is a composite. Yet all these clowns have to do is stick a digital camera with a time stamp on one of those windows, so we could watch 16 sunrises and sunsets in a 24 hour span, and then we won’t need a digital composite, would we? They haven’t done it yet, have they, despite that the ISS has been in space, allegedly, since 1998. Have you ever heard a NAShole telling us how he’s seen a hundred sunrises in a single week? That’s 480 sunrises in a month, Sheep. You would think somebody would have bragged about that, right?

I’m no mathematician, but let’s contemplate this for a second. The ISS at 400 km away is moving at 28,000 km per hour. If it can orbit the Earth every 90 minutes, maybe we could have seen some motion out there, right? I didn’t see any motion. Did you? No wonder Masonic boy was in a hurry to leave those windows!

NASA… sounds legit.

Update: The ISS is not in a stationary orbit, but in a Low Earth Orbit. My argument still stands. (Orbit Wiki)

YT description: This new global view of Earth’s city lights is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite. This new data was then mapped over existing Blue Marble imagery of Earth to provide a realistic view of the planet. The tour is of the International Space Station.
