It is not fake IMO, see the similar USA shot in my avatar. They did manage the exposure to get a few of the stars in this shot.

Ah right - I think I get you.

Those red pointers are not there to identify poles and equators, they are just there to identify Earth as the selected object in the software. In the actual programme the markers rotate around the object, I just took a screenshot of it to show that the view of Earth was correct.

So what happened to the pear shape?

Or has the pear identified himself as rather being an apple?

Yeah. Now what? We've been lied to. Now what? Rebellion?




You never explained the absurd size of North America in that "satellite" picture,

Got the originals handy? You don't believe in satellites?


Originals? Of Earth? Like these two photos are supposed to be? Which one is the real one? Pick please.


It isn't a matter of "believing in" satellites, the burden of proof is on the party making the claim. With non CGI photos.


Obviously the second image is the real one because it shows America being really big. The greater we make America, the bigger it will seem to look from space. Common knowledge, I know, but anyways.

I look forward to seeing how big it looks in the next image from NASA.

Of course, joking aside, something is being hidden from us, something huge. Not sure if its all fake or only partially fake, but I personally don't really believe in the official story.

I mean if you believe either one of these images, I've got a Tesla I'll give you for free. You just need to go and collect it from the asteroid belt.

Ya what's up with that? I read someone say on here you need an atmosphere to receive light... Dunno bout THAT but why then why see earth and not stars...?

Anyone?

Keep reading.

And it's one of the most ignorant, yet consistently asked, questions when someone is trying to cry fake.

AGAIN, aperture and exposure time. If people would just hit up a search engine and type this in, they're learn a lot more than just being smugly, willfully dense.

Take a gander at my own personal photo below:


And then go figure this one out for yourself if you don't like the technical explanations.

Society, civilization itself is beginning to decline, simply because we have nothing much to look forward to or be excited about.

We don't Care about the danger! We dont Care how much it costs! We want to reach for our potential! Like the seafaring explorers of old! Nobody told them "it's too dangerous"...

At least read to the bottom of the first page. It is explained nicely in the last two posts.

Cameras aren't the same as eyeballs, basic ally, is the answer.

So therefore you should not expect a picture to show the exact same thing as what your eyes see.

Well, that is all pretty damn conclusive, thank you for putting that effort in.

Cool pic.

Just a guess but couldn't the difference in these two images be due to camera angle and lens types.

If not , why not?


Also if I remember correctly those images are not taken as one full shot of the earth rather sections of the earth are photographed and then the images that came out the best are all stitched together into their proper place.

Why are you using images of the earth that you randomly found to push your opinion ( whatever that is?) instead of using the chinese image from the op?

Basically the true spirit of exploring space is dead. And civilisation is declining because some people profit from the problems society has. Pictures from earth taken by a satelite is only the first step but it seems to me it's also the last step.

Yes there will be pictures of mars taken with flying drones , but what's the point ? What's next ? Men on mars ?! I heard it all before , seeing is believing and the only thing I see is postcards homevideos from space. Nothing interesting , a bunch off rocks. So let plant something on mars modify it genetically and see how it grows. Or bring some resistant bacteria. But I hear the scientists saying 'we will contaminate mars' so nothing happens.

Or emDrive anyone ? Better propulsions systems , better batteries made of glass , or thorium....

Idea's enough but all deemed : too dangerous , not scientific , too expensive.

In the 70 they just went to the moon , because it was a race with the sovjets. A spirtit to achieve something. Now the spirit is it to play it save and to make some shortterm investments that don't blow the budget. Not seeing that space exploration is the only way for humanity to advance.

Everybody in this thread who mentioned “exposure time” instead of just straight up “exposure” should be embarrassed. You have an elementary understanding of photography. You make us all look just as stupid as the people asking where the stars are. Go read Wikipedia or something, buy a real camera while you’re at it.

I wanna know why in the world the earth is obliquely lit by the sun but the moon isn’t.

I’m gonna go with “it’s a composite” because I have a flag pole in my backyard and I know the earth isn’t flat.

Not sure what you mean by obliquely. The lunar terminator would be somewhere off to the left of the frame.

From the look of it, the Sun is pretty close to overhead of the spacecraft, just as it is over the right side of Earth (Iran/Saudi Arabia). Close to local noon. What is it you would expect to see?

A real composite or a fake composite?


I'm surprised no one has mentioned the color of the Moon. Just "no stars."
