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.
