            the fuck are you talking about, hypersonics powered by scramjet engines are the goal, otherwise you'd just use icbm's where in the terminal phase they're already technically at hypersonic speeds. scramjets is what darpa was testing decades prior for use in hypersonic aircraft and weapons.

        Modern electronics have been vulnerable to radiation based bit flipping for the last 30 years even on the ground level of Earth. Chip designers have had to build in checks against bitflip errors for decades. Space tech have been using newer chips just with thick radiation hardening and those same error checks plus redundant processing.

      The Chinese have spent decades grinding any "outside the box" thinkers into paste.
      The great leap forward, the cultural revolution, their continued disparagement of free and open thought, etc. has left them with a society that has nearly zero capacity for abstract problem solving skills or imaginative thought.
      Turns out for the generation of new technologies, those things are kind of necessary, who would have thought.

      You can see this reflected in their arts, BTW.
      Everything that they produce is derivative of foreign material. Nothing is original, it's all re-hashed in one degree or another.
      Hong Kong was the last bastion for thinking minds.

              Why did the PLA make it look like that?
              The reason is America makes American MREs look like that, thus of course this is what an MRE should look like.
              After all, if the Americans do it, there must be a reason so we should do the same even if we don't understand why.
              That is the Chinese train of thought. They are followers and copiers, through and through.

            The full pic. Note the detail and the angle of the shot. Now add the fact that this is a photo of a screen or projection taken by a phone. This is close to the peak of what is (or was) theoretically possible, and I'm not 100% on the science but it might even be outright physics breaking depending on the angle. It was tracked to be from a satellite launched in 2010 or 2011, so it's real cutting edge stuff.

              What about this image breaks physics? Could it not just be a composite image made from multiple spy satellites?

              • 2 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Satellite technology these days operates on a centimetres per pixel basis, i.e one pixel has 30, 40, 50 etc. cm of detail in it, and it all comes from the one camera, especially the more zoomed in you get. So it's only when you zoom out do you start seeing composite images, at least from multiple satellites. Commercial satellite technology can see 30cm per pixel, after the US lowered the previous 50cm per pixel limit.

                As I understand it, there are two limits to the quality of the image a satellite can produce, one being the camera/mirror used to capture the image; for instance the James Webb Telescope has a larger mirror than Hubble, and the other being the thickness of the atmosphere which interferes with the quality of an image once you zoom in too much. There's a bunch of science around it which I don't really know, but the gist is that it's extremely difficult to get more detailed pictures the more you zoom in. Pic related is a 30cm per pixel resolution, adjusted with software to about 15cm. Note that it's taken purely from above, and even then it's noticeably pixelated.

                The problem with Trump's photo is that it's at an unprecedented level of detail. It's so good in fact that some experts initially thought it was from a drone they snuck into the middle of Iran. You can see the steps on the path to the side, and even the poles of the fence surrounding the site are visible. All that detail and it's at an angle, through more atmosphere than you'd get if you'd taken it purely from above.
                >But Melissa Hanham, deputy director of the Open Nuclear Network at the One Earth Foundation, believes that the resolution is so high, it may be beyond the physical limits at which satellites can operate. "The atmosphere is thick enough that after somewhere around 11 to 9 centimeters, things get wonky," she says.
                It was only confirmed to be a spy satellite because there was one above the site when it happened that got tracked by amateur astronomers.

Shoulder-fired ASAT missiles. Stealth field kitchens. This is publicized in Stargate SG1, scientific research publication Popular Science, only a fraction of the more spooky & shadowy stuff not listed above is merely hinted at in Marvel Cinematic Universe™, history documentary Red Alert 2, time travel documentary Life is Strange (David Madsen was a rogue DIA test subject), but the pardoned parcel is the US of A is at least 6 million years ahead in military tech even without the help of alien's. It is 6 million years ahead though the exact number fluctuates due to the activities of the US Military Time Travel Program underneath Barksdale, A. F. B., L.A., this 6 million years ahead is a universally agreed-upon average by the world & intergalactic/ET scientific communities.
