Washington Boobs Mistook Combine Harvesters for “Russian Invasion”

00 american satellite image scam. 11.09.14


OpEdNews journalist Dave Lindorf questioned satellite imagery of “military equipment” that the USA called proof that Russian troops were in the Ukraine. He believes that they look like combine harvesters, rather than guns left in the middle of an open field. The American administration’s anti-Russian propaganda is trying to use these grainy black-and-white photographs as proof that Russian troops invaded the Ukraine. Lindorf noted that placing mobile artillery as allegedly shown in these pictures is illogical. It shows machinery lined up in the middle of a grain field, with trunks turned towards the Ukraine. They’re not under treecover, which makes them an easy target for attacks from the air or from counterbattery fire. In addition, one doesn’t see ammunition piled near the equipment, usually seen in pictures of military units, for example, as in the Israel Defence Forces deployed in the Gaza Strip. One reader from Texas, “a farm state”, suggested a possible logical explanation. They more resemble combines used to harvest crops. These harvesters have long, straight, gun-like pipes through which the harvested grain pours into trucks for transport. Most often, one sees them aligned in such a chain, which means that they’re not artillery. Lindorf said that you couldn’t say with absolute certainty that these pictures show Russian artillery. However, given the habit of Washington to lie about weapons of mass destruction and mobile plants to produce chemical weapons, it doesn’t give one confidence that there’s a “grain of truth” in the American statements.

The RadioAstron Space Observatory became the first new space astrophysical object created by Russian specialists in many years. RadioAstron studies the nuclei of galaxies, supermassive black holes, magnetic fields, and cosmic rays. This RIA-Novosti Infographic gives more details about this project.

On 19 December, a Russian Soyuz-ST-B with a Fregat-MT stage launched the European Space Agency (ESA) unmanned space observatory Gaia from the Centre Spatial Guyanais Kourou (CSG Kourou) spaceport in French Guiana. Gaia shall carry out high-precision measurement of coördinates and stellar movement in our galaxy, tracking over a billion astronomical objects, to create a new fundamental star catalogue and a three-dimensional map of our stellar system. Gaia will also investigate the hypothesis that the Milky Way was the result of the confluence of many smaller galaxies. The onboard apparatus installed has unprecedented camera sensor resolution; it can detect a lock of hair 700 kilometres (435 miles) away. The telescope, which consists of 106 CCDs, creates an image of about 1 billion pixels. The observatory will orbit in one of the five L2 Lagrange points (points of gravitational equilibrium) between the Sun and the Earth, some 1.5 million kilometres (932,000 miles) from Earth. ESA expects the mission to last five years.

NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) is on an unmanned robotic mission to orbit the moon to gather detailed information about the lunar atmosphere, conditions near the surface, and environmental influences on lunar dust. The purpose of the mission is to catalogue the composition, density, and variability of the lunar atmosphere.
