If it's real (texture looks inconsistent with the rest of the image) then it'd be a stealth plane.

Um...simply no.

The Texture is completely wrong, have a look at how sharp it is compared to the buildings and the X's on the Runway, no.

Aurora may live, but that isn't it.

Edit: PS, No evidence of a shadow pointing up to the left.

There's also the little thing we're bound by called the laws of physics. That thing is way too huge to be an aeroplane, even with scramjets powering it you'd still have to get it off the ground using normal propulsion and that's just not gonna happen with something that ginormous.

You want a shadow?
Double click on the layer with the triangle and apply a drop shadow, still won't look right but it's useful.
Theres a pretty good series of PS tuts on youtube called "you suck at photoshop".

Didn't even occur to me the things too bloody big...

Heck no, I love my Aurora, made me want to see if any other theories about the craft were made in the last couple of years :D.

Ddew, who said they're using "Earthling" parts *-) lol.

I thought the aurora was supposed to use pulse detonation engines. Doesn't sound very human to me.

Hehe, well here's the thing. The laws of physics doesn't change depending on where you are, voilating those laws is an impossibility everywhere. :)

PS Aurora has been proven wrong, impossible and lunatic pretty much yearly for the past ten or so years. As my heroes would say: "Myth Busted", there's zero evidence for suborbital craft with the capabilities of the rumoured aurora and the "evidence" people use have about as much validity as the evidence of the idiots claiming that the moon landings were faked.

Nah, PDE' are very much human, if I remember right it was Nazi Germany who first developed an early type of PDE on their V-1 Bomber.

Edit: ddew, I know it quite well, but it still interests me regardless if it was real or not. :)

Well except for the fact that pulse detonation crafts have been made and flown by people. Pulse detonation is the next logical step for pulse jet engines when you reach the limit to how much fuel and air you can get into the chamber.

I've been exposed to way too many idiots over the years regarding various crackpot conspiracy theories so you'll have to forgive me reacting to it. :)

No worries!

I'm a Skeptic and a Believer (literally a 50/50 split), and I'm with you on the crackpot conspiracy theories, I've heard enough of them in my life to collect the energy from every discussion to send me spiraling to hell and back.

inxsfan92, A good place to start is photoshopping the heads of people onto different bodies.
I'd recommend practicing photoshopping George W's face onto the covers of womens magazines from the 60's, Its a lot of fun.

If you have a reasonable spec machine it doesn't matter. If you have a lower spec machine, Xp'd be a better choice, PS can be pretty resource intensive.

the fact that there's one, its a single core, and its from 2003, and its 2.8GHZ, no its not all that great.

It does surprise me though that It can play my games. Well some of them.

My next will be a Core i7
