But the amateur did know, how to find what they had lost for 10 years.
Like with HIV/AIDS which is the most convoluted disease name in history, experts can make claims that something is not there, when it actually is there, and, the other way around.
In this case, it was the amateur who found it. IT/IS a satellite:
In a blog post, Scott Tilley describes that while searching High Earth Orbit for signs of the mysterious Zuma satellite, he detected signals from satellite 2000-017A instead, the IMAGE satellite thought to have been long dead.
More data gathering confirmed that the signals were from IMAGE indeed. However, when his original blog post did not get the attention of anyone who could possibly do something with the discovery, he contacted the principal investor of IMAGE, Dr. James L. Burch, last Jan. 24.
Two days later, he got a confirmation from Richard J. Burley, former ground system manager and mission director of IMAGE. Burley said that the engineers at Goddard Spaceflight Center have detected a signal consistent with IMAGE.
HIV/AIDS is supposed to describe a disease where if you have sex with someone infected with the virus you could get sick for the rest of your life, “immune system malfunctioning Major Tom.”
The experts, like NASA, are missing something.
First, let’s look at the stupidity of HIV/AIDS as a label. AIDS is a disease. HIV is a virus. The virus causes the disease.
Flu is a disease. TFV is the virus that causes the disease. They don’t call it TFV/FLU or FV/INFLUENZA because naming it like that would be stupid but that is what they do with immune system deficiency which is claimed to be caused by a virus. They call it HIV/AIDS. THEY are lost, like satellites.
AIDS is the disease and there is no other causes besides HIV is there?*
Let’s ask an amateur to look out there in space for an answer. It’s more likely to be floating around there than in the space between medical science ears.
Better chance an amateur figures it out than experts that have schedules and appointment$.
Or did they know about it but LIE/TO the public since the satellite was first found for sale in the classifieds?
An amateur finds a satellite that NASA can’t find, while they declare it Lost In Space and ask congress for more money for new satellites.
In the case of HIV/AIDS it’s sorta the opposite, they discover it, and then ask for more money to find more of it, what orbits it takes around humans, and how to control it’s path.
One thing in common, request for funds.
HIV/AIDS is found orbiting the imagination. Yes it is indeed there.
It was the amateur that discovered it.
* Actually there are other causes, 29 of them not related to HIV at all since AIDS is a syndrome of diseases. See if you can find anyone that has AIDS that isn’t also HIVI (that extra I is for Infected). So to be consistent, all the other diseases under they massively broad category of illnesses called AIDS should be when diagnosed, added to the front of AIDS with that back-slash. For example, Fungus can cause AIDS so it should be said that when one gets Fungus Disease, that it be called F/AIDS. Or better yet, call it F*AIDS.
