Private space flight images and the conspiracy
« on: August 30, 2017, 01:40:47 PM »
The image below wasn't taken by NASA or a governmental agency. It was taken from the Genesis I satellite launched by Bigelow Aerospace. The satellite was put into orbit by the International Space Company Kosmotras. I know NASA is viewed as a faking everything, but what about the numerous private companies that have satellites imaging the Earth? Are they lying, too? Are they also in on the conspiracy? How widespread is the conspiracy and how is it kept quiet in a day and age when leaks are almost constant?
I saw a video where a pilot was flying above the sun.

Yeah - and I can even go one better than that.

This photo (part of Australia) was taken by a group of students at Vermont Technical College - they designed and built their own satellite (a low cost "cubesat"):

Details here:  and here:

That was back in 2014 when the cost to build and launch such a thing was around $100,000.  However,  the cost of launching a satellite that can take photos from orbit and beam them back to Earth has fallen to around $8,000 - which is the point where most colleges and even some high schools can fund them.

There have been around 1,700 such launches of tiny satellites - there is a database of them all here: - you can see how many universities around the world have built these things - just Google for "photos taken by cubesat"...there are a LOT of them.

Here is a photo taken by the "mother ship" moments after it had launched a bunch of these tiny satellites:

So the conspiracy has evidently spread to children and college students - and you know how good THEY are at keeping secrets!

Hey Tom:  What path do the photons take from the physical location of the sun to my eye at sunset?
