A Reminder that NASA has provided no proof of Exo-Planets on Trappist-1

As usual NASA has only provided CGI images of the Trappist-1 system. There are no photos. There are only artist’s renditions. Maybe I’m just a simple country boy, but I thought in science you have to prove your claims. I guess NASA has no need for that.

The NASA website has these pictures.

Looks pretty, yet has little actual significance. Besides this picture shows water. Have they found it on one of the new exoplanets?

Not a photo.

This is perfect. It encapsulates all that NASA is. This is science fiction. Assuming that this planet even exists, maybe NASA should put a man on the moon or on Mars before they start hyping up this solar system that is 40 light-years away that they just allegedly discovered. They sell you fantasies like Hollywood and advertisement companies.

BTW, last night I was playing around with my own telescope and took a picture of a space ship, and a new alien planet with life on it.

If you doubt me, you’re a crazy conspiracy theorist. I’ve provided as much evidence as NASA did.

The newly discovered star system was named after the Trappist telescope that is situated in Chile, but operated from Belgium. Here’s a picture of it.

 

At least I believe this telescope exists. It sounds weird to me though that the telescope is in Chile, but they control it from Belgium. Wouldn’t it be simpler just to have a team in Chile controlling it? Or perhaps it is easier feed the scientists false data if they aren’t looking through it with their own eyes?

The sevel planets around Trappist-1 were supposedly detected with Spitzer Space Telescope, i.e. a telescope that is floating out in space. I’m doubtful that this telescope exists. The Wikipedia page for it shows the alleged telescope under a tarp, and it looks unfinished.

I also found several pictures of it being assembled, but no actual photos of the finished product.

Wikipedia has an artist rendering of it, and I found several similar ones on Google. I understand that if the telescope is actually out in space it’s not easy to take pictures of it, yet I’ve yet to see any pictures taken of it prior launching it to space. Taking into account the fact that NASA admits they cannot go beyond low earth orbit, I’m inclined to believe they didn’t send that thing into space. The pictures showing the telescope being assembled were probably made in benefit to gullible NASA employees who really believe NASA sends stuff out into space. “I saw them assemble the telescope. It’s real.”

I think it’s time to people to admit to themselves NASA has no credibility. Or if you still believe their claims, please do challenge me. Try to prove me wrong, and provide actual evidence of these exoplanets. NASA’s purpose is to create appealing images in the minds of people, like Eddie Bernays did back in the day by having the beautiful models smoke “liberty torches” so women would start smoking, or De Beers making people associate diamonds with romance.

  1. Ever heard of the transit discovery method? There are no photos of them because it’s so far away. Try making a foto of saturn with your smartphone’s camera without using your telescope. That might translate to the use of telescopes with a 40 ly distant star – If there’s something wrong with nasa it’s not that they didn’t deliver photos. Whether using the transit method is that easy to do or not is another question; maybe there you’ll find some new evidence for your theories 🙂

    1. I didn’t say anything about using a smartphone to take photos. There are supposedly all of these space probes and space telescopes out there. Surely some of them can take pictures of some sort? Maybe I’m just a little simple, but if they can observe, i.e. see, the planets through the transit method, why couldn’t they take pictures of it as well? The pictures might be blurry and unclear, since the object is supposedly so far away, but it’s still better than a CGI model.

      1. Thanks for your reply. I think the transit method only detects the change in brightness of a star (which usually is even visible with the bare eye; flickering seen by the bare eye is caused by earths atmosphere which is why they use telescopes like kepler or hubble), so it doesn’t really zoom in all the way. I think there is a picture of pluto taken by hubble which is very blurry because of its distance to earth; stars though are, like, billions of times further away from earth than pluto.
        I think that on a picture taken from a planet like this would not even show the planet which’d be similar to trying to see mercury with the naked eye whilst transiting – the star would just be to bright. I think it would still be able to build a telescope that takes pictures of far away objects – the problem is, as far as I understand it, that the further you want to zoom in, the bigger your telescope would have to be. I would love to see real photos from exoplanets, I just believe it is not possible yet. By the way, did you hear of blue origin wanting to build a settlement on the moon in 3 years?

      2. So basically we just have to believe NASA that they’re telling the truth about all of those exoplanets and other stuff, since their technology isn’t good enough to provide actual proof?

        I heard something about building a settlement on the moon. Sounds like scam to me just like the mission to Mars, or Asgardia space nation -thing.

  2. That or you start learning how it’s supposed to work and then judge wheter or not it is possible; also nasa usually gives out some sort of information on their experiments, I mean, if it is an scientific experiment, there should be a log somewhere… if there is really no paper on trappist-1 it might very well be that nasa’s fooling with us – I’d be too lazy to even search for that though – i do have better stuff to spend my time on 🙂 I don’t really know why they should lie about this, I mean, It doesnt have any effect on everyday live.
    Settlements on the moon would technically be possible I think, but there really is no need for it – plus it would be super expensive. So yeah it’s science fiction
