There's always been idiots in the world.
It's just that modern communications allow them to spread their nonsense far and wide in ways that were impossible only 40 years ago.

Scott Manley has uploaded an impressive video about the recent volcanic eruption in Tonga. As I write this, over 900k views.

But I was astonished at the number of comments from flat earthers.

I seriously had no idea they existed in such numbers!

Gah!

Pound to a pinch of dog turd they will be multiple accounts for the same few people.

Ah, good point.

I've seen Destin's companion video which goes into more detail about the woven memory cores. Its a lot longer (about 45 minutes) but if this stuff really does interest you, its worth every minute.

I started a thread about it about a year ago

Don't know if people have seen this video by Linus on the Saturn V IU. Interesting to see someone who normally talks about the latest gaming hardware talk about something of such a different generation.

The Reality of Apollo / Re: Apollo 8 TV question

Hi Jason, my sincerest apologies for not replying earlier. I was flat out the 2nd half of last year with promoting Searching for Skylab.

So now on to your question. At the time there was no TV monitor small enough to function as a monitor for the TV camera. There were optical view-finder solutions available for the RCA SSTV camera, but I am unsure whether the astronauts used it or not. It was probably less time consuming to point and shoot and let MOCR tell them how it looked.. Stan Lebar was telling me how they were looking for options for the sequential colour Westinghouse TV camera, when someone alerted them to a person in Tokyo who was specializing in making mini-monitors. Westinghouse purchased them from him and developed the unit seen in photos from the Apollo 10 and 11 missions.

My morbid thougts on this telescope have been relieved to a large part, now for the calibrating, etc.
Agreed!  After all the delays and setbacks I was expecting problems with the various mechanisms sticking.  It looks like we'll finally get a working telescope, and some incredible views of the universe.
