Also why isnt there a satilite orbiting the moon right now allowing American school children to see LIVE, COLOR images of the landing
Because live images have no advantage over regular images, with the Moon being a very static environment. The Moon is almost entirely grey, so colour
images wouldn't show much and just take up valuable bandwidth.
How much would you pay to access that live feed and be able to manipulate a camera to pan and zoom in on the pride of a nation.
I wouldn't pay anything, again because a live feed would be identical to images that have already been taken (and are still being taken by LRO).
LRO's camera is firmly attached to the spacecraft, so panning would require tilting of the spacecraft itself, using thrusters. They do it for
scientific purposes, but letting the public do it for fun would be a waste of fuel, and time. LRO isn't there to enterntain the crowd.
You know why this wont occur. Lies are much easier to keep, when you keep people in the dark.
First rule of control, make them fear the truth more than they fear the lies we want them to believe.
No, you have a completely wrong perspective on this. LRO and other orbiters are there to explore and to perform science. We get plenty of images and
videos for public outreach. If you want to have control over what a lunar probe does, build and launch your own, if you can afford it.
And what's this talk about fear? The only people who fear anything about the Moon are conspiracy nuts with little understanding of science and what
scientists are doing.
