The facts are that the hole in the ozone is getting bigger
That is exactly the only thing you said in your thread that is correct.
actually wait for the hole to move to an area they can launch through a window
1) That's ridiculous. Ozone is atmosphere. You can fly through it just as easy as air (it is, in fact, just as part of 'air' as oxygen, nitrogen, etc are)
2) If that were true, they'd have to wait a DAMN long time - the ozone 'holes' are over the poles, no where near the tropics at all (IE., no 'ozone hole' ever passes over any of the US)
The ozone layer is a very thin component of the atmospher that is attributed to keeping the heat in
1) The ozone layer is NOT thin
2) It had better NOT keep the heat in - it keeps solar radiation OUT
by detecting the heat escaping through it
They can detect it because of space based satellites' capability to create 'chart' our atmosphere.
burning the carbon thus leaving a hole
'Burning the carbon'!?!? WHAT carbon?? Ozone is 0 3 - that's three oxygen atoms in a molecule. Nothing to do with carbon - there had BETTER not be any carbon in our atmosphere.
I have seen plans and diagrams of a space station being armed with nukes in popular science magazine(
That seems like the kind of thing popular mechanics would print.
Popular mechanics is NOT a reputable magazine.
For all we know they could be working on nuclear powered stuff up there
Why would they? As I noted before, there is no advantage in doing that.
1) Nukes make poor weapons in space. They take to long to get to target, are too easily observable, and cost more than sea based weapons
2) Nukes make poor energy in space. There are no clouds to get in the way, and the sun's energy is many times greater than it is on earth - solar energy is BY FAR the most efficient method of power generation in space.
