Did Putin Threaten To Release 9/11 Satellite Evidence?!

Did Russian President Vladimir Putin threaten to release secret satellite evidence of US government’s involvement in the 9/11 attacks?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-09-21 : Added new information on the Pravda article, and the Russian satellite.

Claim : Putin Threatened To Release 9/11 Satellite Evidence!

People are sharing a long message which claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to release secret satellite evidence of US government involvement in the 9/11 attacks!

They appear to believe that Putin issued this threat in retaliation for US sanctions against Russia, and military assistance to Ukraine. It’s a long post, so please skip to the next section for the facts…

Putin is going to hit once, but he’s going to hit hard. Russia is preparing the release of evidence of the involvement of the US government and intelligence services in the September 11 attacks. The list of evidence includes satellite images.

Truth : Putin Did Not Threaten To Release 9/11 Satellite Evidence!

This is yet another example of pro-Russia FAKE NEWS that are spamming social media, as well as WhatsApp and Telegram groups. Here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pravda Article Was Posted In February 2015

The Pravda article (translated archive | original Russian) was actually posted on 7 February 2015, and updated on 10 February 2015. This was specifically mentioned in the 2015 examples :

VT Editor’s note:  Russian satellite evidence proving the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center using “special weapons” was reviewed by a VT editor while in Moscow.

The article below was forwarded to us for publication in the US and translated from Russian. It is 3 days old, published on February 7, 2015.

The fake news creators removed that section, to mislead you into thinking that this was a new threat by Putin in 2022 and 2023.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Putin Threatened To Release 9/11 Satellite Photos

Even though the viral post is based on a Pravda article, there never was any evidence that Vladimir Putin himself actually threatened to release satellite photos, or evidence of any 9/11 conspiracy.

The Pravda article itself did not make that claim. It only claimed that Russia is “preparing” to release evidence of the involvement of the US government and intelligence services in the 9/11 attacks.

Fact #3 : Russia Did Not Release Any Evidence Of 9/11 Conspiracy

If the Pravda article is true, then Russia is taking an extraordinarily long time to release evidence of a 9/11 conspiracy by the US government and intelligence services.

Despite preparing for over 8.5 years – since February 2015 – the Russian government has never released any evidence of any conspiracy by the US government in the September 11 attacks.

No satellite imagery… no photos… no documents… no evidence in any form or manner. Why not? Does it take that long to develop and digitise the photos from Russian satellites?

Fact #3 : Russian Satellites Were Terrible In 2001

It would also be quite a feat for Russia to provide “conclusive satellite imagery” as the Pravda article alleges, as Russian electro-optical satellites were not quite “state-of-the-art” in 2001, and that’s being generous.

At that time, they used the Yantar-4K2 (Cobalt / Kobalt) satellite – a slightly improved version of the Yantar-4KS1M (Neman / Неман) satellite, which had a resolution of just under a meter using the Zhemchug-18 camera.

These satellites have a limited lifespan of just 26 to 32 weeks, and used film which could be returned using two small canisters mid-mission, and a larger reentry module at the end.

Russia only had one in operation at that time – (Космос 2377) Cosmos 2377, which was launched on 29 May 2001, and dropped out of orbit on 10 October 2001.

Cosmos 2377 could plausibly have taken photos of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, but the images was likely only as good as the Maxar IKONOS commercial imaging satellite.

Note that the Kobalt satellite is different from the Kobalt-M (Yantar-4K2M) satellite, which features upgraded optics with reported image resolution of 30 cm (0.3m), and a modernised platform. The first Kobalt-M satellite was launched on 24 September 2004.

Fact #4 : There Are Many Satellite Images Of 9/11 Attack

There is no real need for the Russians to share their satellite photos, because there are many publicly-available satellite photos on the September 11 attacks.

The private satellite imaging company, Maxar, for example, shared this high-resolution photo of ground zero at the World Trade Center on 15 September, 2001.

Taken by IKONOS, which had a resolution of 0.82 to 1 metre, it gives you a good idea of the image quality and resolution that are already available for free to the public. So it begs the question – do the Russians really have better images than that?

Fact #5 : Satellites Have Limitations

Despite being extremely useful, imaging satellites not magical instruments. They have limitations in what they can and cannot do.

For example, they have to generally stay in a pre-determined orbit, and “fly through” an area – leaving large gaps during which there is no coverage.

They also cannot look inside or under solid objects – planes, buildings, trees; and their view can be obscured by smoke and clouds, unless they have multi-spectral ability.

You can see how the smoke obscures the picture in this Maxar image taken of the Manhattan financial district on September 11, 2001.

It is therefore highly improbable that any satellite image from way up high would have captured “incriminating evidence” of the US government’s involvement in the September 11 attacks.

Fact #6 : 9/11 Attack Was Committed By Al Qaeda

In the past 22 years, the many conspiracy theories have all been repeatedly looked into and debunked.

We now know, with absolute certainty, that the September 11 attacks were conceived by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, approved by Osama bin Laden, and carried out by nineteen Al Qaeda terrorists.

There was no US government involvement in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Osama bin Laden himself claimed responsibility for the 9/11 attacks on several occasions. You don’t need a satellite to know that.

Does Viral Video Show Super Moon At Arctic Circle?!

Does the viral video recorded at the Arctic circle show the total eclipse of the sun by a super moon at its perigee?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Super Moon At Arctic Circle Causes Total Eclipse Of Sun!

This video, which has gone viral on WhatsApp and social media platforms, claims to show how the moon comes super close to the Earth at its perigee, and actually causes a total eclipse of the sun, at the Arctic circle!

The moon, seen from the Arctic Circle, between Russia and Canada. It only lasts a few seconds, but it’s worth seeing. It’s a spectacular sight.

Imagine that you are in a location between Canada and Russia and suddenly and for just 30 seconds, the moon appears in all its splendor and disappears before your eyes. It looks like the moon is going to collide with the earth.

Even more impressive AND for just 5 seconds, a total eclipse of the sun takes place. It’s unprecedented and spectacular!

The video was shot in REAL-TIME. The phenomenon happens at the “perigee”:  the closest point of a heavenly body’s orbit around the Earth, where the proximity of the moon is so evident that, suddenly, we realize the great speed at which the Earth is moving.

This effect is only visible once a year and lasts for just 30 seconds…Astronomers figured out those exact 30 seconds and had the cameras rolling.  Fortunately they had a clear sky.  Pls enjoy 🙏🙏🙏

Truth : Super Moon At Arctic Circle Video Is Fake!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Super Moon Video Started Going Viral In 2021

First, I think it is important to point out that this isn’t a new video. In fact, this super moon video first went viral in May 2021.

At that time, people were waiting to witness the Super Blood Moon on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, when there would be a complete lunar eclipse for about 15 minutes as the Earth passes directly between the moon and the sun.

The “blood” moon had a reddish-orange colour, because all of the sunrises and sunsets in the Earth’s atmosphere projected onto the surface of the eclipsed moon.

Fact #2 : Super Moon Video Was Created By Aleksey__nx

The viral video of the super moon perigee creating a total solar eclipse at the Arctic circle is actually a computer-generated animation created by a TikTok content creator called Aleksey__nx.

His original TikTok account is no longer around, but he has a new TikTok account aieksey__n, in which he shares similar computer-generated animation videos.

Recommended : Will Aphelion Phenomenon Create Cold Weather?

Fact #3 : Moon Distance Varies By Just 14%

The Moon orbits the Earth in an elliptical orbit, with its distance varying by 14%. At its closest point (perigee), it is about 356,500 km away, but at its furthest distance (apogee), it is 406,700 km away.

While the difference in distance can produce a noticeably smaller or larger Moon to the naked eye, it is not significant enough to produce such a large moon as seen in the viral video.

Remember – the difference in distance between the apogee (furthest point) and the perigee (closest point) is only 14%, so the size of the Moon will only vary by about 14% in diameter, and 30% in apparent area.

Fact #4 : Such A Moon Could Cause Havoc On Earth

The Moon would have to be extremely close to the Earth, for it to appear as large as shown in the viral video.

If that actually happened, the Moon would orbit the Earth much quicker. Instead of taking a month, it would take just hours to complete an orbit.

As impressive as such a large Moon would look, many of us would probably not be around to enjoy it because its gravitational pull would cause massive tidal waves that are hundreds of metres high, sweeping the globe as it goes around.

On top of that, the Moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth’s mantle would trigger apocalyptic-level volcanic activity and earthquakes as it orbits. Lakes and other large bodies of water would probably boil off, with molten lava flowing everywhere. Quite literally hell on Earth.

Did Buzz Aldrin Just Admit Moon Landing Was Fake?!

Did former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin just admit on TV that the famous first moon landing was fake?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Buzz Aldrin Admitted Moon Landing Was Fake!

People are sharing a TikTok video which purportedly shows former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin admitting on TV that the moon landing was fake!

Stew Peters : Why would Buzz Aldrin say this? 🤯

Is he trolling?

Buzz Aldrin Tried to Tell You! The Moon Landing Was Fake.

#NASA #UN #WEF #WHO #NasaLied #MOONLANDING #BuzzAldrin #StanleyKubrick #CIA #NAZI

Buzz Aldrin admits the moon landing was fake “We didn’t go there”

Moon landing 1969 was fake.
So supposedly Apollo 11 launched on July 16, 1969 with Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin.

A filthy j-w wanted evidence that it was fake, here it is:

Recommended : Can Flower of the Holy Spirit Transform From Saint To Dove?!

 

Truth : Buzz Aldrin Did NOT Admit Moon Landing Was Fake!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created on TikTok, and shared on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : These Are Old Videos

First, let me just point out that the viral video clip consists of three old video clips from 2005 and 2015.

  • first part was from a Q&A session with Buzz Aldrin at the Oxford Union in 2015
  • second part was from an interview with Buzz Aldrin at the 2015 National Book Festival
  • third part was from an old Conan O’Brien interview of Buzz Aldrin from 2000.

They are not new or recent by any measure, so claiming that Buzz Aldrin “just” admitted that the famous first moon landing was fake is nonsense.

Fact #2 : The Video Clips Were Edited To Remove Context

The three video clips are real, but were edited to remove context, in order to misrepresent what Buzz Aldrin said.

In the first video clip, Buzz Aldrin was asked by an audience member, what was “the scariest moment of the journey”, to which he replied, “Scariest? It didn’t happen. It could’ve been scary, don’t you think?

The video creator cut the clip at that point, to make it look like Buzz Aldrin said that the moon landing didn’t happen. The truth is – Buzz Aldrin was referring to how the “scariest moment” could have, but fortunately did not happen.

In the part that was edited out, Buzz Aldrin explained how he saw a “broken circuit breaker” in the dust on the floor of the lunar module – “there was something that didn’t look like it belonged there“. He then explained how pushing that circuit breaker with a pen sent the necessary power to the engine that helped return them to Earth.

In the second video clip, Buzz Aldrin was asked why nobody has “been to the moon in such a long time“, to which he responded, “because we didn’t go there, and that’s the way it happened“.

The video creator edited out the subsequent part which shows Aldrin explaining that “we need to know why something stopped in the past if we wanted to keep it going“, and saying that money was a factor, as more money is needed for new equipment, “instead of keep doing the same thing“.

The third video clip shows Buzz Aldrin being interviewed by Conan O’Brien about the animations used in the TV coverage of the moon landing. He explained that the TV stations were using those animations with the actual audio because there was no one on the moon to film the moon landing!

Recommended : Will Aphelion Phenomenon Create Cold Weather?!

Fact #3 : Buzz Aldrin Has Long Called For A Return To The Moon.

Buzz Aldrin has never said that the moon landings were fake, or that NASA never made it to the moon. In fact, he also long called for a return to the moon.

In August 2017 – 48 years after the Apollo 11 moon landing, he made another open call for a return to the moon, as the first step towards sending humans to Mars.

I think the National Space Council could exert a strong position of leadership by pulling together space-capable nations to forge a partnership — one that utilizes low Earth orbit and the Moon as a testing ground for technologies needed to make possible footprints on faraway Mars.

The United States is the experienced and potential leader of this coalition of space-capable countries. Doing so could decrease the cost of many activities in Earth orbit and at the Moon in preparation for Mars.

Given the reactivation of the National Space Council, I call upon them to help secure a bold presidential commitment. That is, on the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo landing on the Moon in 2019, to commit to a continued occupation of Mars with international crews. Through U.S. leadership, we can facilitate and sustain the arrival of humans on Mars.

Fact #4 : Buzz Aldrin Punched Moon Landing Denier In 2019

It is also ludicrous to claim that Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin wanted to avoid NASA censorship, and sneak word out that the moon landing was fake.

Buzz Aldrin was been outspoken about the moon landing, and has never claimed that it was fake. In fact, he once punched Bart Sibrel – a conspiracy theorists who made “documentaries” like A funny thing happened on the way to the moon (2001) and Astronauts Gone Wild (2004).

On 9 September 2002, Bart Sibrel cornered Buzz Aldrin in Beverly Hills, asking him if the moon landing and his lunar walk was fake, and badgering him to swear on the Bible. But when he called Aldrin “a coward, and a liar, and a thief”, Buzz Aldrin punched him in the face.

One small punch for Sibrel, one giant slap for conspiracy theories!

Fact #5 : Moon Landing Was Not A Hoax

It is now 2023 – over 53 years since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first human beings to step foot on the moon. We need to stop believing in fake news, because over the last half century, this conspiracy theory has been repeatedly debunked:

  • the Apollo program involved over 400,000 people, and no one has ever produced a single shred of evidence it was fake.
  • Each Apollo lander left a “retroreflector” on the moon, which are used to measure the moon’s distance. Anyone with a powerful enough laser can prove that the moon landings are real by aiming it at any of these retroreflectors.
  • The NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mapped the moon’s surface in detail in 2009, and returned images of the Apollo landing sites, showing the lunar modules, flags and astronaut footprints.
  • The six Apollo missions brought back 380 kg of moon rock samples that are 200 million years older than any Earth rocks.

Duskers

In Duskers you pilot drones into derelict spaceships to find the means to survive and piece together how the universe became a giant graveyard.

Explore

You are a drone operator, surrounded by old gritty tech that acts as your only eyes and ears to the outside world.

What you hear comes through a remote microphone. What you see is how each drone sees the world. Motion sensors tell you something’s out there, but not what.

And when you issue commands, you do it through a command line interface.


Adapt

You have to earn everything in Duskers, scavenging drone upgrades, drones, and even ship upgrades. But dangerous creatures lurk in these derelict ships, and weapons are rare, so you may need to think of a clever way to explore a military outpost using only a motion sensor and a lure.

But even if you find a way, the sensor that you rely on may break down, or you may run out of lures, even your drone’s camera feed can start to fail. A favorite strategy can’t be exploited for long, so you’ll have to continually adapt.


Survive

Duskers is set in a procedurally generated Universe, and when you die you lose everything. You not only need to worry about what hazards lay waiting for you in the derelicts, but also running out of fuel, or parts to modify your drones and ship.

You are alone, isolated in the dark reaches of space. Only by sifting through what ship logs remain un-corrupted can you piece together what happened.


Features

  • Use a Command Line Interface to control drones & ship systems
  • Explore procedurally generated derelict ships and universe
  • Upgrade and modify drones with the salvage you find
  • Discover ship logs and piece together what happened

Will Aphelion Phenomenon Create Cold Weather?!

Will the Aphelion phenomenon create cold weather that can cause flu, cough and breathing difficulties?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Aphelion Phenomenon Will Create Dangerous Cold Weather!

A viral warning about the Aphelion phenomenon has gone viral in WhatsApp groups, as well as social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

It warns people that they will start experiencing dangerous cold weather that can cause flu, cough and breathing difficulties!

From tomorrow till August 22 this year, it will be colder than previous years. They call it Aphelion phenomenon.

Starting tomorrow at 05:27 we will experience the APHELION PHENOMENON where the Earth will be very far from the Sun. We cannot see the phenomenon, but we can feel its impact.

This will last until August 2022.

We will experience cold weather more than the previous cold weather, which will have an impact on flu, cough, shortness of breath, etc.

Therefore, let’s all increase immunity by drinking lots of vitamins or supplements so that our immunity is strong.

The distance from the Earth to the Sun is 5 light minutes or 90,000,000 km. The phenomenon of aphelion to 152,000,000 km. 66% further.

Here is another version in broken English… with Aphelion wrongly written as Albelian and Alphelion.

ALERT
Strange Phenomenon

From tomorrow till August 22 the weather will be colder and colder than last year. This is called the Albelian phenomenon. It starts tomorrow morning at 5-27.

We will not only see but also experience the effects of the Alphelion Phenomenon. It will end in August 2022.

During this time we will experience cold weather like never before.. due to which.. our body aches and stuffy throat, Fever, cough and breathing problems occur. Therefore, it is better to strengthen your immune system with vitamins and other healthy food products.

The distance between Sun and Earth is 90,000,000 km. But during this Alphelion Phenomenon, the distance between the two will increase to 152,000,000 km. That is a 66% increase.

Please share this with family, friends and loved ones. STAY SAFE

 

Truth : Aphelion Phenomenon Will NOT Create Dangerous Cold Weather!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : Aphelion + Perihelion Happens Every Year

First, let me just point out that aphelion and perihelion are annual events where the earth is furthest away (aphelion) from, and closest (perihelion) to the sun.

In 2022 and 2023, earth will be closest to the sun (perihelion) in January, but move to its furthest point in July (aphelion).

This aphelion / perihelion phenomenon happens because the earth’s orbit around the sun isn’t perfectly circular. Instead, it is a slightly elongated ellipse.

Fact #2 : Aphelion-Perihelion Difference Only 3.3%

The viral messages wrongly claim that the distance between Sun and Earth is 90 million kilometres. It is actually about 149 million kilometres on average.

That means there is only a 5 million km / 3 million mile difference between the aphelion (furthest point) and the perihelion (closest point) of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

That is a minuscule 3.3% to 3.4% difference between the perihelion and the aphelion. Not 66% as claimed by the fake story.

Fact #3 : Solar Constant Changes Only 3.5%

The amount of the Sun’s energy that the Earth receives is called the solar constant, and is about 1367 watts per square meter.

This solar constant only varies by 3.5% between the perihelion (closest point) and the aphelion (furthest point) of the Earth’s orbit around the sun.

Such a small difference in the Sun’s energy received by the Earth cannot significantly change weather or the local temperature.

Just look at the difference in the sun’s size between aphelion (furthest point) and perihelion (closest point). You can barely tell the difference!

Fact #4 : It Takes Over 8 Minutes For Sunlight To Reach Earth

The viral messages falsely claim that sunlight takes just 5 minutes to reach Earth.

The average distance between the Sun and Earth is 149 million kilometres, and the speed of light is 299,792 km per second.

If you do the math, you will see that sunlight takes about 497 seconds to reach Earth. That’s about 8 minutes and 28 seconds.

Fact #5 : Cold Weather Cannot Cause Disease

While cold or hot weather can exacerbate medical conditions, they cannot cause diseases like flu, which is a viral infection.

Symptoms like fever, cough and stuffy throats suggest viral or bacterial infections, which are not caused by changes in the weather.

Flu infections increase during cold weather because the flu viruses survive better in cold air, and the low humidity helps the virus particles remain in the air.

Flu infections are also more common during cold weather because people stay indoors more often, allowing easier spread of the virus from one person to another.

Fact #6 : Supplements Cannot Prevent Diseases

Vitamins and other supplements cannot prevent viral or bacterial infections. They are not vaccines. They are supplements.

Supplements also only help if you lack the nutrients they supply in your diet. If you have a good diet, you don’t need supplements.

Fact #7 : Taking Supplements Can Be Bad / Dangerous

There are limits to which your body can absorb nutrients. Excess nutrients from supplements will just end up excreted in your urine or stool.

More worryingly, taking some supplements in excess will block the absorption of other nutrients. Or worse – they can build up in your body and become toxic.

So never take supplements in excess. They are meant to supplement a poor diet. They will not turbocharge a good one.

Anonymous Affiliates Are Attacking Russian Space Agency!

After Anonymous declare a cyberwar against Russia, their affiliates are going after the Russian space agency, Roscosmos.

Here is what they accomplished so far!

 

Anonymous Affiliate NB65 Attacked Russian Space Agency!

On 28 February 2022, the hacking group – Anonymous Network Battalion 65′ (NB65), which hacked and released over 40,000 files from the Russian Nuclear Safety Institute.

They then turned their attention to the Russian Space Agency, claiming to shut down the WS02 Vehicle Monitoring System server at the Roscosmos Control Center on 1 March 2022.

The Russian Space Agency sure does love their satellite imaging.

Better yet they sure do love their Vehicle Monitoring System.

The WS02 was deleted, credentials were rotated and the server is shut down.

Network Battalion isn’t going to give you the IP, that would be too easy, now wouldn’t it?

Have a nice Monday fixing your spying tech. Glory to Ukraine.

We wont [sic] stop until you stop dropping bombs, killing civilians and trying to invade.

Go the fuck back to Russia.

However, Roscosmos Chief Executive, Dmitry Rogozin denied the claim, saying that “The information of these scammers and petty swindlers is not true. All our space activity control centers are operating normally.

 

Anonymous Affiliate v0g3lSec Hacked Russian Space Agency Website!

On 3 March 2022, another Anonymous affiliate, v0g3lSec, hacked a website owned by the Russian Space Agency – http://uv.ikiweb.ru/.

This appears to be the official website for the World Space Observatory-Ultraviolet (WSO-UV) telescope, also known as the Spektr-UV. It is still down as of 4 March 2022.

 

Anonymous Affiliate v0g3lSec Leaked Russian Space Agency Files!

On 4 March 2022, v0g3lSec released files that were hacked from a private service hosted by the Russian space agency.

The files apparently contained data from Luna – a joint programme between Roscosmos and the European Space Agency (ESA).

  • The leaked data consisted of 261 items, with a size of 729 gigabytes.
  • The executable files (.exe) are from 2012, with a timestamp of 2012-12-20 18:18:57.
  • Most of the documents are from 2009 to 2012, so the files are pretty old.

This suggests that the files that v0g3lSec stole were old data archived by Roscosmos. While it is a technical success, it is unlikely to have any actual effect.

 

Roscosmos Chief Threatens ISS + War

Roscosmos chief, Rogozin, suggested that sanctions against Russia could result in the destruction of the International Space Station (ISS).

If you block cooperation with us, who will save the ISS from an uncontrolled deorbit and fall into the United States or Europe?

Rogozin also said that any cyberattack on Russia’s satellites would be considered casus belli – a cause for war.

However, it is unknown how Roscosmos or Russia plans to declare or effect war against Anonymous, or its affiliates.

Can HUAWEI Phones Get Free Calls + Internet From BeiDou?

Can HUAWEI smartphones get FREE calls and Internet connectivity through BeiDou satellites, without a SIM card?

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : BeiDou Gives HUAWEI Phones FREE Calls + Internet!

People have been sharing different messages on WhatsApp and Facebook, claiming that BeiDou will give every HUAWEI phone unlimited calls and Internet without a SIM card!

If u r able to change/ upgrade ur hp then u may want to consider Huawei devices.

Please buy Huawei hp because after the End of June 2020. All Huawei hp will be equipped with Huawei Own Satellite BEIDOU Chipset which will allow you to make Phone Calls and Internet DATA usages without any Charges for Life and No Sim Card is required. Save a lot of money in the long run??

Baidu is do much more powerful than old uncle Google. Baidu is the major driver for 5G, free satellite calls, wider coverage, higher speed, etc. Anyway no one can stop u fr using uncle Google if u so loved him using any type of hp (iOS, Android, Symbian of others)!! U can also VPN to tunnel into many networks & firewalls….!!

 

No, HUAWEI Phones Cannot Get FREE Calls + Internet From BeiDou!

HUAWEI offers some of the best smartphones in the market, but these claims are truly “out of this world”.

There is NO WAY that any smartphone, from HUAWEI or any other brand, that can make free calls or receive free Internet connectivity through BeiDou satellites.

These are just fake news created by the Chinese 50 Cent Army / Little Pink Army.

Fact #1 : BeiDou Is A Navigation Satellite System

BeiDou is China’s own satellite positioning and navigational system, functionally similar to GPS, GLONASS and Galileo.

So far, the Chinese have launched 59 satellites, from three generations.

Fact #2 : Final BeiDou-3 Satellite Launched In June 2020

The June 2020 date likely refers to the launch of the final BeiDou-3 satellite, which completes the BeiDou-3 satellite constellation.

The original BeiDou-1 satellites were decommissioned at the end of 2012.

Fact #3 : Smartphones Have Supported BeiDou For Years

The first smartphones to support BeiDou were introduced in 2013. It’s not like BeiDou is only being introduced after June 2020.

Fact #4 : HUAWEI Supports Multiple Satellite Systems

HUAWEI, like many other brands, have long introduced multi-constellation support for navigational signals.

Their smartphones not only support GPS, but also BeiDou, GLONASS, and Galileo, switching to whichever satellite system offers the best performance or accuracy.

Fact #5 : BeiDou Is Supported By Foreign Mobile Platforms

BeiDou civilian signals can be used by foreign mobile platforms, and are in fact supported by Samsung Exynos and MediaTek mobile platforms.

Qualcomm, for example, introduced support for BeiDou signals in their Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) platform back in 2013. So did MediaTek with their MT3332 / MT3333 SoCs.

So many non-HUAWEI smartphones use chipsets that support BeiDou.

Fact #6 : BeiDou Cannot Provide Calls / Internet Connectivity

BeiDou is primarily a global positioning satellite system, with limited communications capability – just short messaging services (SMS).

However, only the military (or related security services like civil defence) are given access to the BeiDou SMS service, using special satellite phones.

Civilian devices, like HUAWEI smartphones, can only use its positioning services, and have NO ACCESS to any communications capability.

A CGTN news report is probably responsible for this misunderstanding (watch our video above).

Fact #7 : Calls + Internet Still Require A SIM Card / eSIM

While the HUAWEI P40 series smartphones support eSIM, other HUAWEI smartphones still require a physical SIM card.

But whether your smartphone uses a physical SIM card or eSIM, it needs some sort of SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) number to obtain call and Internet services from your mobile service provider.

Fact #8 : HUAWEI Offers A Free Video Call Service

HUAWEI introduced a new video call feature called MeeTime, which allows all HUAWEI devices to make video calls for free.

This includes tablets like the HUAWEI MatePad Pro, and computers like the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro.

However, MeeTime requires Internet connectivity, and no, HUAWEI is not giving you free Internet connectivity to use MeeTime.

Seriously, no one can give you free Internet connectivity. Not even Apple.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Space Launch + Contest Winners!

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy S family of premium smartphones, Samsung launched TEN Galaxy S10 smartphones into the stratosphere… LITERALLY. Here is our full coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S10 space launch and the Be Unbeaten contest!

 

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Space Launch!

For the very first time, a smartphone gets launched into the stratosphere, and it is apt that Samsung chose their 10th generation Samsung Galaxy S10. In fact, they sent not one, not two… but TEN of them, just because the Galaxy S10 is their 10th anniversary Galaxy S smartphone.

The payload of ten Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones was hoisted by a high-altitude balloon to an altitude of 80,000 feet. At the very top, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will take a bird’s eye shot of the earth.

Samsung promises that the 4K video taken will be brighter and with more dynamic range than any other smartphone, thanks to its pro-grade camera and the new ability to record videos in HDR10+.

 

Be Unbeaten Contest

The public was invited to be part of this historic Galaxy S10 space launch by predicting where the payload will land through photos of its 4K video feed. All they had to do was drop the pin on the location they think the payload will land!

The ten participants with the closest location to the actual landing spot each walked home with a Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone! Congratulations!

The Ayam Brand Racing To Space Videos & Contest!

Ayam Brand just launched their Racing To Space campaign to celebrate their 125th anniversary! Even though Ayam Brand is a Malaysian household name in canned foods, this campaign focuses on food sustainability, eco-consciousness and commitment to local communities.

In this campaign, they sent, not one, but FOUR high-altitude balloons all the way to the stratosphere! They also announced details of the Racing To Space contest. Check out the details below!

 

Racing To Space With Ayam Brand

In their Racing To Space contest, four high altitude balloons with specially-designed rigs were released. Each balloon had Ayam Brand food items attached, namely Sardines in Tomato Sauce, Canned Tuna, Baked Beans and Coconut Milk.

The objective of the race was to discover which of their classic food products would be the first to reach the highest altitude, while recording stunning aerial views of the region on the way up! Here is a virtual reality video they made of the footage :

The Ayam Brand team worked on this project for about a year, spending about RM 50,000 (~US$ 12,000) on the special rig that was designed to ensure the camera can withstand the freezing temperatures, and ultra-low pressure, up in the stratosphere.

With consultation of the Malaysian Meteorological Department, they launched the balloons in Kahang, Johor… eventually reaching a height of 29,000 m / 95,000 feet. Check out the amazing footage they obtained!

Here is a closer look at the high-altitude balloon, and the special rig they created.

The Ayam Brand Racing To Space Contest

You can join in the Racing To Space campaign by participating in their Racing To Space contest. They’re offering 1,000 Ayam Brand heritage gift sets, and 5 VR gogglesa total value of RM 53,000!

All you have to do is watch the two short videos above, and answer questions about them, and write a short slogan (as tie breaker).

NASA – A Human Adventure @ ArtScience Museum

Singapore, 12 October 2016 – Ignite your curiosity about space travel and be inspired by the triumphant milestones in human space exploration with ArtScience Museum upcoming blockbuster exhibition, NASA – A Human Adventure. Opening on 19 November, the show will be the largest space flight exhibition ever to be held in Singapore, with over 200 historically significant artefacts on display including items which have flown in space.

 

NASA – A Human Adventure Now Open At The ArtScience Museum

The largest space flight exhibition ever to be held in Singapore

The exhibition tells the inspiring story of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) huge achievements in space flights and exploration, from the time the first space rocket was launched to the latest accomplishments in manned space flights. Visitors can get up-close with the extraordinary spacecraft that NASA has developed, and discover the stories of the people who flew them.

Amongst many incredible highlights, the show presents exhibits on the gigantic Saturn V Moon Rocket, full-size models of the pioneering Mercury spacecraft, the Apollo Command Module that carried the first humans to the Moon, the Rover astronauts used to explore the Moon, and a full-size model of the front section of NASA’s iconic Space Shuttle.

The exploration of space is an astonishing human story. NASA – A Human Adventure shows the spirit and fortitude involved in surviving in space, and reflects on the sacrifices of the men and women whose own journeys into space ended in tragedy. The exhibition also shows that space exploration has always been an international endeavour, and how the Space Race grew out of the rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union.

Through the presentation of modern achievements, such as the development of the International Space Station, the show reveals how space now brings countries and cultures together. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the spacecraft, rockets and technology that changed history and our understanding of our universe.

NASA – A Human Adventure is a blockbuster exhibition that brings visitors on an extraordinary journey through 100 years of human space adventure, starting with the dreams of artists and writers, and culminating with engineering marvels that changed the world. Space is a topic that touches all of us, and the endeavours of the astronauts and cosmonauts that pioneered this new frontier over the past decades, have captivated generations of people from around the world. By bringing the largest travelling space-flight exhibition ever assembled to ArtScience Museum, we hope to give our visitors in Singapore and South East Asia a unique chance to become part of this incredible story.

New technologies are showing us that space exploration has an exceptionally dynamic future, and we want to inspire visitors of all ages to be part of that future,” said Ms Honor Harger, Executive Director, ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands. Produced by John Nurminen Events B.V. the exhibition made its world premiere at Tekniska Museet (The National Museum of Science and Technology) in Stockholm, Sweden in 2011. Since then, it has travelled to Madrid, Istanbul, Tokyo, Bangkok, Seoul and Taipei, among others. Singapore is the next stop.

“It is a great honour to bring NASA – A Human Adventure exhibition to ArtScience Museum. Through the exhibition, we seek to inspire everyone to dream big and aim high, just like everyone in NASA has always done. It takes a great deal of skill, discipline, education and training to become a NASA engineer or an astronaut. We want to encourage the young generation to continue to take big steps to explore the world outside the Earth’s atmosphere. It is essential for all of us on this planet to keep exploring what lies beyond. We welcome all visitors to experience NASA – A Human Adventure, the story of one of mankind’s greatest achievements and be inspired by the remarkable history of manned space flights,” said Mr Jukka Nurminen, Director & CEO of John Nurminen Events B.V., the producer and exhibition curator of NASA – A Human Adventure exhibition.

Narrated through five galleries – Dreamers, Go Fever, Pioneers, Endurance and Innovation, NASA – A Human Adventure introduces visitors the people, technology and engineering feats that have captured the imagination of many, while inspiring dreams of future space exploration.

NASA – A Human Adventure Gallery 1
