FLAT EARTH REFLECTIONS (Robert Bassano) - All Space Telescopes are on SOFIA - Special Purpose 747 @ 45,000 Feet!
Dear Robert Bassano (FLAT EARTH REFLECTIONS aka PLANATE VERITAS),
Fact check = You FAIL
The following inconvenient truth collapses your SOFIA / Hubble picture substitution fantasy...
Pictures from the Hubble Space Telescope were published and made available to the public starting on Dec. 2, 1993, which is 16-YEARS BEFORE the first astronomical research flight of Sofia's 2.5 meters (98 inches) bent Cassegrain optical telescope.
Question 1 - Since SOFIA's optical telescope was not used until May 26, 2010, what took all those earlier published Hubble pictures?
NASA’S Airborne Observatory Sees “First Light” in Flight
The Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), a joint program by NASA and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), achieved a major milestone May 26, 2010, when the airborne observatory made its first in-flight nighttime observations. Astronomers call the first observations by a new observatory “first light.”
Saving Hubble: Astronauts Recall 1st Space Telescope Repair Mission 20 Years Ago
(By Denise Chow, Staff Writer | December 2, 2013 02:27pm ET)
On Dec. 2, 1993, astronauts Richard Covey, Kenneth Bowersox, Kathryn Thornton, Claude Nicollier, Jeffrey Hoffman, Story Musgrave and Thomas Akers launched aboard the space shuttle Endeavour on a mission to correct Hubble's faulty optics. The astronauts spent more than a week in orbit, and completed a record-setting five consecutive days of spacewalks.
This month marks the 20th anniversary of STS-61, which would become the first of five space-shuttle flights to upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope.
Please stop spreading false information.
