This FULLY OPERATIONAL battle-station!
No. No. No.
A thousand no's in your direction, sir!
Really, there is no good faith comparison that could possibly be made between the two.
I'd rather this stay a light-hearted thread just taking the piss instead of delving into all the reasons why.
Well I wanna know! I was bad at history. Failed the last one I took because I described the flapper girls as whores out of control.
Doubles as a wi-fi repeater?
Found this for you...
Finally, we will all be role playing Majoras Mask in a few years.
Can't believe it got this far and no one posted this.
I have actually seen the ISS pass over head once years back. and its HUGE. now while it wasnt meant to reflect light, it was still small in the night sky. the size of the thing would have to be huge to reflect enough light to be usable, and in a high enough orbit to get sunlight past sunset/sun rise.. and highly movable.
just not see the feasibility of it.
which nothing to say about the actual practicality of it.
Sucks at releasing sunlight, but not too shabby at launching bombs?
Blind eye? Forgive me if this is a stupid question, I know nothing about astronomy.
How are they going to get the light to penetrate all that pollution?
I've seen the disasters of a Microwave plant in Simcity 2000. That space beam misses and burns everything!
Space based reflectors for the purpose of advertising or artificial lighting should be banned. Between the real moon and artificial lighting it's already a pain in the ass to find a good astronomy site.
It'll be banned.
not sure the question. but if you mean a blinding light, that would be highly unlikely as you would not want to make their reflector focus the light, but instead reflect in a diffuse manner to spread light out over a greater area.
but then, like someone joked above.. you have to get through their smog.. to say nothing of cloud cover.
No, I meant naked eye. No scope. Stupid lol
A Fake Moon would make a good selfie for a tourist.
Danish hardware are taking off soon on a 7 year flight to Mercury,
Not really a moon actually more in the other direction. but cool none the less for such a little Country like us.
An accomplishment for any country. You're in good company, USA. And then the posers.
The Sun Simulator conspiracy folks on youtube are going to loose their GD minds...
#metoo (im taking it back)
= Giant solar sail, use the " Doesn't throw mass" drive to counterthrust for orbit stabilization?
Someone did, but [H]ardocp is so dark and smoggy you didn't see it
Just like Elon Musk. People believe anything they hear.
And no... There is no Tesla car in space. The fact people believe that blows my mind.
Pretty sure I saw the video...
I don't believe that you believe you saw the video, which of course wasn't not undoubtedly unbelievable
And I bet the earth is flat too eh?
Don'y worry. Al Gore will save us from the global warming of the light rays.......
A moon moon to boom boom
Wtf, the cunts spending money on new moons n shit, yet they fuck up something as mundane and easy as writing the “gift” price on my mail, causing customs to fuck my shit up and punch me in the nuts with a huge fukin bill.
The fuck up with price has been explained, it’s because they are launching a second moon.
That shit right there tells me that am dealing with a bunch of fuking idiots.
As long as it looks like 2 butt cheeks floating in the sky I will be ok with this.
Could make for a nice BFR money shot
What you imperialist western dogs call 'pollution', the glorious CPC calls a missile defense system.
Guess we'll have to do like Russia and build nukes with a larger yield. Or just use a good ole map.
Yeah this won’t start a war or anything.
Straight from the Bureau of Incredibly Stupid Ideas.
Just thinking, to remain overhead all the time it will have to be in geosynchronous orbit which is what, 28,000 miles up, while the ISS orbits maybe 150 miles up. To reflect enough light down on a single city bright enough to see in the dark well, this thing will have to be absolutely huge. The ISS looks like a very bright meteor when it goes over, not something you can read a newspaper by.
They also say it will be focused down to about 80 sq km, hopefully if they can keep it that focused it won't create too much light polution in other areas.
screwing up the skies for cheap publicity. Typical of the Chinese.
