As I said above we'll have to see which country eventually registers this launch with the UN to have a definitive answer

That's not definitive. UNOOSA registers the satellites that make orbit, not the launch vehicle. Thats why you have countries like

Norway (NorSat-2 launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome)
Pakistan (BADR-1 launched from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center)
Canada (Nimiq-5 launched  from Baikonur Cosmodrome)
Mongolia (NUMSat-1 launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome)

listed in their registry

You insisted that the flag on the mission patch denotes the country that launched itt.. Now you insist that it doesn't. Its the old switcheroo, a technique right out of the CT playbook. Please make up your mind.
I first mentioned the flags on the patch and the actual rocket in the same post above.  I didn't switch from patch to rocket after you gave a counter-example.  However, I would think that what's on the actual rocket is what counts the most.

I'm sorry you feel as you do, I'm not trying to be difficult nor do I discount the technical achievements of Rocket Lab.  It just seems to me that there is evidence - the flag on the rocket, the Satellite Situation Report and Beck's own statement - that not everyone considers the nationality as clearly defined as you do.

As I said above we'll have to see which country eventually registers this launch with the UN to have a definitive answer.  Can we agree to wait?

The Hoax Theory / Re: My own conspiracy theory
« Last post by JayUtah on Today at 11:50:17 AM »
Back in 2000 or so, Fox News wasn't as overtly propagandistic as it is now, and Fox News and Fox Entertainment were essentially separate companies who just happened to share a television channel and little else.  When the Fox Entertainment program came out, Fox News actually took pains to rebut it in several of their markets.  So I doubt that was the intent.  That's not to say Fox News lately isn't taking a page from that book.

General Discussion / Re: The Trump Presidency

Who has to write down "I'm listening" as a response to people in crisis?  Then again, I'd also thought he was functionally illiterate, so at least he can read it.

There's a legend that if the ravens ever leave the Tower of London, England will fall.  I'm beginning to think the same thing is true of The Simpsons and Fox.

Maybe.  But The Simpsons, when it's really firing, is hardly an unintelligent show.

As for Fox News . . . in the last week, they've been espousing the idea of "crisis actors," because it makes more sense to them than that teenagers who've survived a school shooting might have a reason to come out as opposed to the kinds of guns that killed their classmates.  And that teenagers raised in a social media age might have an idea of how to get media attention.

Is Fox News really that bad? I never watch it myself but know it has a "right-wing" reputation.

Yes, it's that bad. Any network that spends serious time promoting the "Uranium One" hoax is bad.

To me this is just giving a platform and assists with the general "dumbing" down of the people that believe this nonsense. Unfortunately this adoption of crackpot notions being readily accepted, by a main stream outlet, gives people the ammunition to say things like, "well it's been, proven that the moon landings were faked, etc!" Whereas this is far divorced from reality, however these people will point to other outlets, such as WooTube anyway and say that theirs is the accepted view.

I have real problems with media outlets, such as, "The History Channel," airing programs such as "Ancient Aliens," and portraying this as some form of evidence based fact.

Fox Entertainment Group is a massive media organization, of which Fox News is just one small part.  20th Century Fox Television discovered the untapped market potential of the uneducated goober demographic back in the '90s, and will air anything that will grab those eyeballs, regardless of politics (exhibit a: Temptation Island).  And The Simpsons1.

Fox News is far more targeted and insidious, and definitely has a political axe to grind.

My personal conspiracy theory is Fox News is how the Scientologists are going to take over America.  They all have that Scientology Stare going.  Watch a Tom Cruise interview sometime, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Further, in the centre of the patch is Rocket Lab's Logo; the same logo that is on the side of the Electron rocket.
You forgot to mention that the background is All Black.

And the Rocket, well the first one was, the second one was black and white
