I looked at this just now along with the several pages in the original thread on the shuttle and the thing that strikes me first is that if we're victims of a shuttle hoax on this scale that something is wrong with our minds-- my mind in particular. It didn't occur to me that the shuttle images on the 747 were fake however in 1980 when I first saw it on... yes!... TV!... it struck me as impossible and bizarre. I just never followed up on that initial shock, the initial intuition that something's not right.
If the shuttle images from the beginning have been faked, then the scale of this is now in league with major major mind control and an existing police state already. It seems impossible... yet the bolt and the other points on the shuttle thread do strike me as valid.
Are we already in a type of reality show like that movie Jim Carrey starred in? How is the scale of this deception even possible? What artifact of the human homo sapien mind is so weak that this can be done to us? Is everyone in a position of authority with any meaning tapped on the shoulder by an Illuminati agent and paid or blackmailed to participate in the charade? How far does the charade go? I know for a fact I'm not personally conducting or perpetrating a charade... or am I being used somehow without knowing it? All sense of reality breaks down on consideration that that shuttle program has been completely faked. How can they possibly have gotten away with this?
So back to the bolt. I had to convert the 78000 kg to tons to get a feel for it since I have better experience with tons, as in a 5 ton truck. https://encrypted.google.com/search?q=5 ... CAYQ_AUoAQ
Here is a 1 ton pickup.http://www.google.com/search?q=1+ton+pi ... 5MqZZ-boi4
Here is an 86 ton locomotive.http://carsandtrains.com/ironroad/wpy/wp97_skagway2.jpg
To get a better feel for the shuttle bolt problem, I suppose you could say that since there appear to be two bolts on the shuttle, and they hold the shuttle to the rocket engine, and even hold while the shuttle crazily rotated upsidedown while rocketing off into space (which shocked me when I saw it on liftoff every time), that the equivalent would be to try to lift that locomotive using just two bolts attached to imaginary cranes. Here are some cranes...http://www.google.com/search?q=giant+cr ... CAYQ_AUoAQ
Here is a crane lifting what looks like an 86 ton locomotivehttp://farm8.staticflickr.com/7014/6483 ... 4fc1_z.jpg
Right away we can simply see that the 4 heavy bars and connections between the crane and the locomotive are much more substantial than the shuttle bolt connection, and yet the shuttle is a similar weight and under the stress of motion and significant added g forces on rotation and liftoff.
Here's a view of the shuttle where we can see a substantial connector at least at the base. The triangular connector at the top is still admittedly a problem just from looking at it and thinking about the stress on that connection from 86 tons like that. http://www.universetoday.com/wp-content ... Kremer.jpg
From the top, we can see how tiny it looks. In this next image, it even seems as though the shuttle is leaning backwards. One begins to wonder what kind of disconnect mechanism is in there... if not the thickness or gauge of the hook. Working with wire a bit, I realize that gauge matters when trying to make something weatherproof and windproof. Too thin a wire and it will definitely snap. Same thing with cables. One wonders what type of connection is at the base of the triangle too. http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/1253 ... usage1.jpg
Here's another odd picture.http://www.csmonitor.com/var/ezflow_sit ... ll_600.jpg
It looks like there are shock absorbers on the back. The front triangle looks like its been welded to the 747 sloppily but with a LOT of welding metal. If this is all fake, the Christian Science Monitor is participating in the deception because they wrote...http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2012/0 ... nian-video
They then raised the orbiter 60 feet (18 meters) off the ground so that the carrier aircraft could be positioned underneath. Discovery was then lowered onto the jumbo jet's three protruding attach points to achieve a "soft" mating.

Work continued throughout the day Sunday to secure, or "hard" mate, Discovery to the 747, before removing the hoist sling and backing the paired vehicles out of the MDD on Monday morning. [How Space Shuttles Fly on 747 Jets (Photos)]
Apparently, when CSM asks readers if they're scientifically literate in the middle of this article, they must be referring the scientific terms like "the three protruding attach points" on the 747. Imagine that... we call those thing a ma jigs... "protruding attach points". Setting it down is "soft mate" and I guess tightening the bolt would be the "hard mate" that took all day. The scientific literacy for shuttle fans would also include the MDD or "Mate-Demate Device"....http://mashable.com/2012/04/16/space-sh ... jumbo-jet/http://media.photobucket.com/image/rece ... 905-03.jpg
The shuttle is lifted by crane in the MDD, and the 747 rolls under it where they softmate and hardmate it. Here are more google pics of that... I'll continue to look for clues as to exactly what a hardmate looks like... we'll consider it to be "space shuttle porn". http://www.google.com/search?q=shuttle+ ... CAYQ_AUoAQ
