In today's NASA/Space Revisionist story of the month.

A new study has revealed that the disk of stars belonging to the Milky Way galaxy is anything but flat and stable. According to astronomers from National Astronomical Observatories of Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), the disk becomes increasingly “warped” and twisted as it extends out from the Milky Way’s center.

The researchers found that the pull of gravity becomes weaker far away from the Milky Way’s interior. The hydrogen atoms making up the far outer disk are no longer confined to a thin plane, but instead give the disk an S-shaped warped appearance.

“It is notoriously difficult to determine distances from the Sun to parts of the Milky Way’s outer gas disk without having a clear idea of what that disk actually looks like,” said study lead author Dr. CHEN Xiaodian.

“However, we recently published a new catalogue of well-behaved variable stars known as classical Cepheids, for which distances as accurate as 3 to 5% can be determined.”

This database is what enabled the team to develop the first accurate three-dimensional picture of our Milky Way, including its far outer regions.

Classical Cepheids are young stars that are up to 20 times as big as the Sun and up to 100,000 times as bright. This composition would imply that they burn through their nuclear fuel very quickly, sometimes in only a few million years, and die young. They show pulsations that can be observed as changes in their brightness, and the extent of the pulsation period can be used to obtain a highly reliable distance.

“Somewhat to our surprise, we found that in 3D our collection of 1339 Cepheid stars and the Milky Way’s gas disk follow each other closely. This offers new insights into the formation of our home galaxy,” said study senior author Professor Richard de Grijs. “Perhaps more importantly, in the Milky Way’s outer regions, we found that the S-like stellar disk is warped in a progressively twisted spiral pattern.”

I don't think NASA can keep their charade up much longer.

It seems like even the people who try to defend them these days, no longer even put forth any real effort.


And they shouldn't, because they'd sound that much more foolish.

I just dropped the NASA/"flat Earth" issue personally, because it may be designed to evoke a neverending debate. And that's dangerous, because there are bigger fish to fry imo.


Replace "God" with "YHWH", and there is your model.

It is "flat," looking down upon it.

I'm just waiting for the day that some hole opens up near earth and starts sucking everything off the planet into a never ending black hole. Is it kinda fu*ked up that I wanna be alive when that happens? lmfaoo

How ironic is that this post is so deep that one could write books upon books about it?

The universe is funny like that I guess.

By the way:

planet (n.)

late Old English planete, from Old French planete (Modern French planète), from Late Latin planeta, from Greek planetes, from (asteres) planetai "wandering (stars)," from planasthai "to wander," a word of uncertain etymology.

Perhaps from a nasalized form of PIE root *pele- (2) "flat; to spread," on the notion of "spread out," "but the semantics are highly problematic," according to Beekes, who notes the similarity of meaning to Greek plazein "to make devious, repel, dissuade from the right path, bewilder," but adds, "it is hard to think of a formal connection."

So called because they have apparent motion, unlike the "fixed" stars. Originally including also the moon and sun; modern scientific sense of "world that orbits a star" is from 1630s. An enlarged form of Greek planes, planetos "who wanders around, wanderer," also "wandering star, planet," in medicine "unstable temperature."



Is that, "interesting"??

There is no such thing as "planets."

There are "wandering stars" in Earth's sky; which have been worshipped since antiquity as false gods.

And then there is the "heavenly host," of stars "proper." (Then, the sun and moon.)


There are the Heavens; the sky; the Earth; and the underworld.


No more.

The dad of one of my best friends growing up, was the executive director of NASA under Obama.

I used to play ball at their house a few times a week.


Life is fu*king strange, I swear.


My personal doctor's family emigrated to America, because his father was a member of Wernher von Braun's team. ("Operation Paperclip.")


If I see my old friend again... it might have to go down, for real.

One last odd thing, is that mt friend's dad's tenure continued under Trump.

Then for some reason, he was named NASA Executive Director for Life.

Then he abruptly resigned, I think last year.


All of this can be looked up.

I haven't seen my guy since about '06, so I knew none of this until I read it online.

Majority of the posts in a short thread? Nah he ain't serving an agenda

Nobody knows what's beyond the beyond, and everyones idea can be disproven.

Spend your time handling that which you can control, or die a sad life chasing what you cant like the billions of people before you.

You get one life. Live

Kiss my a*s.

I serve The Most High, and my agenda is the truth.


I had no idea until recently that one of my best friend's dad was the Executive Director of NASA. It's rather ironic.
