My contribution to the body of knowledge was small, but it was done according to the standards set out for me. It was the application of an appropriate method, that's all.

Absolutely, while I wanted to unify the force fundamental forces of nature and change physics, I realised this was not going to happen during my undergrad studies. I was no Stephen Hawking, that was for sure. The PhD, while contributing little to the body of knowledge, provided me with a research skill set and an awful amount of resilience and fortitude to keep going in the face of adversity. It was a war of attrition for me, I was either going to beat that piece of equipment or it was going to beat me. I won :)
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former - Albert Einstein.

I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people – Sir Isaac Newton.

I do wonder whether what I've done with satellite photos would (if re-written and more fully referenced and without the abuse directed at conspiracy theorists) qualify for another PhD - or at least a Masters :D
The work shows that you are continually observing the data and then trying to put a theory/proposal to explain how/why the observation occurs.  It gets others to think and contribute in a somewhat peer review, although many of us aren't PhD, myself included.

If you have the facts on your side you don't need to lie. Something to think about.

I agree!

Now, tell NASA (Never A Straight Answer) that!

Link one statement that NASA has said that is false. And by false, I don't mean by your allegation, but by some scientist, engineer that has presented a peer review paper proving the statement is false.

And not just a mistake or something that later turned out to be incorrect due to new information; an out and out lie.
