I'm all for it. Yes we have NASA live feeds, and the good videos are cut off when a visual anomaly appears. I don't know if NASA actually cut those
feeds, or if they are fake, because they never appear on the NASA site again, just on YouTube from uncredible posters. They are usually low quality,
maybe 2nd or 3rd digital copies, suffering from YouTube compression loss at each capture.
I'd like to see raw, high def streaming images. I want better cameras, at least one with a good polarizer that reveals subtle lightning differences
(cloaked objects). I'd like direct access that won't be cut, and I would be happy to chip in. Anyone arguing that 50k is enough to retire to the
Tahiti, maybe when our parents were born. This is a drop in the bucket for a pet project with potential, consumer level DSLR cameras have exploded in
quality the past 5 years, I want sharp eyes up there feeding my brain. Looking for objects that are illuminated, that change direction, that have
interesting shapes, and any anomalies, where I am the judge of what's interesting.
Dave can you tell us how you get this camera box into space so cheaply, will we have enough money left for gas? Better to discuss it here than
research it for myself.
