Thread: National Geographic Channel Special: Life on Other Planets

  1. #1 National Geographic Channel Special: Life on Other Planets

    The National Geographic Channel is showing a very interesting special Monday night at 9PM Eastern and Pacific. I just saw a guy talking about it on Fox News, he's one of the contributors. He says they're going to show scenarios of what they think life might be like on other planets and also that we can see so many planets through our telescopes that one of them has to contain life. Anyway, it looks really good, so if you get that channel you might want to watch it. This might apply more to biology, but because the setting is space I thought I would post it here.

    Sounds interesting. Remember that speculations are just that. There may be enough thrown in to make it interesting but somehow I doubt that it will amount to anything that you can "sink your teeth" into.

    Unlike Fox National Geographic does put out some good stuff. I still have problems with Fox being a creditable news source after the moon hoax thing. Even today, some people are firmly convienced we didn't go to the moon. I guess that the Japanese will have to photo the landing area just to prove or disprove it.

    One would think that bouncing a laser off the mirror left behind should be enough to prove that someone went there and left something behind. However it is odd that I have found no mention of this happening.

    I guess like all else, time will tell whether the US hoisted the bigger hoax on the world ever or if the trash news has become real reporting for a change.

    I like Fox News on the weekends, and their news is more sensational and interesting most days, but I'll admit I usually tune into MSNBC before switching to Fox.

    I also saw the little special they did on the regular FOX channel a year or two ago about whether the moon landing was a hoax or not. I believe they implied that it was. But then I watched another show about it on either NGC, or one of the Discovery channels and the whole show seemed to implicate that it was a hoax until the very end where they did say that we have a mirror up there that points a laser beam back at us. And that was the end of the wonder, obviously we did go there, the proof is in the mirror. I really have no idea why we went there and haven't been back now that we have more sophisticated cameras, etc... you'd think they would spend a little bit of time drilling there to see if there are any new elements or something, but I guess we're more concerned with Mars.

    The interesting aspect of this show (the reason for this thread) was that they might show pictures of other planets, or that I might learn something from it, but unfortunately I missed it because I wasn't home. If I find out when there's a repeat show, I'll post it here.

    I've had problems with FOX News being credible since I watched it the first few times. It's sensational and shallow, and it's most certainly not fair and balanced.

    The moon hoax film was a joke, but a bad one because I didn't laugh. And it doesn't matter how many space probes takes picture of the landing sites. They won't be convinced by something so simple as evidence. This is clear already, since they believe in that hoax. They are too clever for evidence such as photos, footage, live broadcasts, lunar dust and rocks... It reminds me of religion and creationism. Evidence won't make a difference.
