You didn't notice the "Welcome" sub-forum?I don't think there's any section for introductions on this forums, and if I posted an intro in any other section, it would be off-topic so would get deleted as spam.
Yes I had seen the same test, from space they can see a spot flash on the ground, I know you already know this but for those that don't, they don't see the beam, just a small bright flash of light down at the ground, it would be a continuous light at the ground if the people on the ground could keep the laser pointed at the space station but it's moving kind of fast...Yea, I bet some did.
I saw a test where people shined a bright light that could be seen by space station observers, I expect they see a lot of laser flashes especially at the city outskirts which wouldn't do any harm at that distance, but you know they see them, I expect they won't talk about it so as not to promote people trying to signal them.
p.s. I am NOT advocating the lasing of anything where there are people inside, nearby, ect....
I saw that. I thought that was for rules and stuff posted by admins, not for users to post personal intros.You didn't notice the "Welcome" sub-forum?
It is the first sub-form in the first section of the LPF sub-forums listings, called Newcomers before Rules and Stickies
I'm also quite sure I'd had an account here before. But it seems you guys changed forum software or something, and lost the user database. That's why I had to create my account here again. I'm not a new member, just new in the most recent database your software is using.The "Welcome" sub-forum is for doing personal intoduction/welcome thread posts.
Have a look and see some of them.
