Can someone explain to me how an earthrise happens? Isn't the moon tidally locked to the Earth and as such has one side always facing it?
User avatar #13 to #12 - valyn (07/22/2014) [-]
thats why the gif is stabilized- the earthrise shot is taken from the Apollo Command module orbiting the moon, and therefore not tide locked
User avatar #14 to #13 - gildemoono (07/22/2014) [-]
Oh alright, thank you.

im working on getting all my visual admin's minions reinstalled. Did a clean install of the game for .24 to cut down on bugs
User avatar #20 to #19 - bloxxer (07/22/2014) [-]
I had some pretty intense admin's minions.

I didn't really realize how much they impacted performance until I removed them for 0.24
User avatar #21 to #20 - valyn (07/22/2014) [-]
but .24 gave us glorious 64 bit, so now we have the ram to go truly ham with admin's minions
User avatar #22 to #21 - bloxxer (07/22/2014) [-]
That is true.

I've been seeing some performance improvements too

Dammit Neil, hold the ******* camera still.

Would somebody please put dickbutt up there.
User avatar #6 - dumbassvtwo (07/22/2014) [-]
Most likely a time lapse where a camera took a photo at every X intervals.
User avatar #16 to #6 - skypatrol (07/22/2014) [-]
A very astute observation
User avatar #23 to #16 - dumbassvtwo (07/22/2014) [-]
Wait. I just realised I posted this as a separate comment when it was supposed to be a reply to comment #4.

xxdarkdanxx just mentioning so you can see.
User avatar #24 to #23 - xxdarkdanxx (07/22/2014) [-]
Took ya 9 hours to notice?
User avatar #25 to #24 - dumbassvtwo (07/22/2014) [-]
I didnt really check the comment and ive only just logged in to see skypatrol's reply so that's the reason why.

I am not a clever man
User avatar #26 to #25 - xxdarkdanxx (07/22/2014) [-]
Yes, your username says it all
User avatar #27 to #26 - dumbassvtwo (07/22/2014) [-]
Yep.
Well now I know you've seen what was supposed to be my reply.
So now I can die happy.

Was this some sort of rocket dashcam? or does the earth rise that quickly on the moon & an astronaut took out a camer? questions?
#7 to #4 - anon (07/22/2014) [-]
It´s probably a dashcam on the moon module. The gif had to be stabilised because it moves, yet very slowly. I guess the time between two frames is ca. 5 sec (120x speed)
#28 to #4 - ineptvirus (07/24/2014) [-]
I believe it is filmed by Buzz Aldrin when orbiting the moon in the command module. Its sped up for viewing.
User avatar #29 to #28 - ineptvirus (07/24/2014) [-]
Just wanted to add that if it was a fixed camera taking time lapse images, there would be no need for image stabilization because the camera wouldn't be oscillating like that - it would be travelling smoothly or not at all.
