This article has pictures from when it had been launched. Through the porthole.
The ISS programme is a joint project among five participating space agencies: NASA, Roscosmos, JAXA, ESA, and CSA. The ownership and use of the space station is established by intergovernmental treaties and agreements

We can either go to the moon colonize and mine it or watch China do it. Who ever does it will eventually rule the Earth.
Just sending humans there is a status symbol for their home country.
But even China knows that there is nothing on the Moon that we need down here.
So there aren't any images of the ISS from dragon?
Do you actually have sources for some of these rather incredible statements that you make?
They aren't removing Reseau marks from the Apollo image catalogs. They are providing images without the Reseau marks.
really? mans walked on the moon and they want us to invest in sending a probe to the moon?
to do what? more than the people that were already there? do not see the point if you ask me unless no one was there in first place lol
High resolution ISS images
The ISS is a join NASA/ESA/JAXA/Russian program, that has NOTHING to do with the military.

There have been so many hundreds of probes sent to the moon already, many or even most are still classified, so perhaps the founders of this venture don't know a lot about those, or just trying to keep the space adventure going in their own way..
You can't spend that much money and NOT know a lot about our moon, well, the public doesn't get to see that really fun data. Some does slip through however.

I don't think there has even been 50, and the data are readily available - as my groaning bookshelves will attest.

So the US is in the habit of letting potential opponents have free access to what it supposedly a classified space station? Along with civilians and tourists, but won't let an unmanned cargo module take pictures.
Makes perfect sense.
