That should be 11 Billion miles away as it travels at 100,000 miles an hour.

Re: NASA

Not quite Star Trek, it's real, and amazingly even with such old 1977 technology, still going 36 years later without a service or any maintenance, it's just to difficult to comprehend the achievement of this machine and its makers.

Re: NASA

In 1993 I taught the guy responsible for landing Beagle on Mars. He was a weirdo and a lousy driver. A typical geek who had communication problems. I dumped him because he was a nightmare over payment and cancellations. Beagle crashed into Mars on 25 December 2003 and in 2004 I saw the guy at the test centre with another instructor, he failed !

No its not. Its a General 'non-driving' forum and you might promote polluting the planet but I certainly don't big_smile big_smile

So when anyone contacted you for driving lessons you said "No, don't learn to drive, it will pollute and kill the planet with all the emissions you will produce. The resources involved in building the vehicles will destroy the habitats of local wildlife, the roads will cut swathes through unspoilt countryside. As well as the environmental effects, vehicles will mow down millions of animals on our roads every year. It will also kill thousands and maim 10's of thousands more humans each year in the UK alone. In fact, I feel so strongly about the well-being of our planet that I'm not going to be a driving instructor as I want to help preserve earth for future generations. I'll work for an environmentally friendly company that actively helps to reduce the effect that we're having on this earth.

Driving = pollution

Driving instructors, by definition, encourage people to pollute. There is no argument.

Re: NASA

Hi
There is always an argument!
Cars pollute, people want to drive cars, driving instructors teach people to drive.
3 statements that don't add up to;driving instructors encourage pollution.
The most important of the 3 statements, IMO, is; people want to drive cars.
We should be teaching to drive in an eco friendly manner.
We are discouraging pollution lol
We are eco warriors wink

Re: NASA

lol you all have me wrong.

I don't feel bad for polluting the planet - the damage that humans are doing is insignificant compared to what has gone on in the past. 1 volcanic eruption can have more of an affect than everything humans have done in the last few hundred years.

Humans will never kill the planet unless we invent something that can explode the earth from the inside. All we will do is make it less hospitable for us all to live. An asteroid 20miles across couldn't destroy the earth. It wiped out 90% of everything on the planet but life recovered. This has happened many a time before and will continue to do so.

There is NO SUCH THING as eco-friendly driving, driving by definition is all eco-unfriendly. Hybrid cars are the biggest lie of the lot. The amount of sh*t that is needed to make the batteries to power them is 10 times worse than what a fuel burning car would produce in its lifetime.

Like I said BY DEFINITION, driving instructors encourage people to pollute. It would be like training someone to use a gun and then saying it had nothing to do with you when they shot something.

I am under no illusion that what I am doing as a profession is bad for the environment but at the same time, the amount of pollution that I and all my pupils produce over the next 30 years is nothing compared to what spews out of 1 volcano in a day, or comes out the backsides of a herd of cows, or a bunch of termites.

The only way humans can do anything to reverse the 'damage' that we have done is to stop using fossil fuels overnight, stop mining, quarrying, BREATHING (!), which we all know isn't going to happen and, even if we did, the earth would still get warmer and colder of its own accord. A guy call Milankovich (i think) can explain why.

I just find it inherently amusing that people like to 'protect the environment' but drive cars.........

Re: NASA

I sometimes wonder if some people have a sense of humour, or come to think of it, actually have a life roll

Re: NASA

Talking of space craft, Oscar 7, an Amateur Radio Communications satellite, was launched in 1974. It ran until 1981 before succumbing to battery failure and basically shorting out the solar panels output.

In 2002 it came back to life! It was due to the fact that the batteries decayed to the point where they eventually became open circuit allowing the power from the soar panels to once more power the equipment directly. As it happens, the satellite now only works when the solar panels are in sunlight.

Re: NASA

Having re-read through the posts, I can see why this thread is getting out of hand.

Christhedrummer has pointed out that the forum is a driving instructor forum, one of the few professions that actively encourages people to pollute by sitting in their cars instead of walking and taking public transport.

I take that to mean that seeing that this is a driving related forum, Chris is  just referring to the fact that the nature of driving instruction promotes pollution, and nothing to do with the fact that the thread is in the non-driving part of the forum.

It is so easy to mis-read what is written, and I can see this has already happened on this thread.

Please remember to take a moment and re-read posts that you are responding to  before pressing the "submit" button, otherwise threads will get completely misconstrued and twisted.

Re: NASA

My OP was an attempt at humour, it had nothing whatso ever to do with driving so i posted it in the NON driving section as indeed others do with things unrelated to driving hmm unfortunately my attempt at humour has gone completely over the heads of one or two who dont appear to have a sence of humour so perhaps it is i who should apologise!! But i am not going to, so there lol
still no signal on my phone when in my house lol

Re: NASA

brod - I have never been able to get a 'phone signal from where I live, as I live in a valley surrounded by a lot of very tall trees.  This blocks the signal from masts.
I have tried every network going to no avail so changing service provider may not work.
The only thing that works is a "suresignal" which runs off broadband.  I can then get full signal.  When broadband goes down (which happens often) there is no phone signal.

I take your point about all this technology, about time these phone companies got their act together.

'Tis the nature of threads to go off track, so it's official, and just to clarify, please stay on topic  smile
