go out side and take a picture of the nigjt sky with your smart phone, see any stars? the tech we have today was launched with those rovers. i do wish so bad there was a camera that could take a picture of what the human eye sees
So I have a theory as to why we see no stars outside of Earth. Starlight is directional, just like a laser. You can see the dot of a laser on a wall but it's near impossible to see the source unless you are in the path of the light, b/c it doesn't disperse. Only cheap lasers can be seen from the side, but it's like 1/1000000th the brightness of the dot it emits. So star light shines back on the origin of the star, Earth, and if you move away from the origin (earth) you can't see it. Now IDK if the star is the laser & it shines it's "dot" back on earth, or if it is opposite, Earth is the origin (laser) or "power source" for the dot being projected out into space.

Why is "technology" always blamed. Do you think they are sending 640x480 camera's up there? Do you think the camera's don't have shutter control so they can get longer exposure of feint light sources? Why are all the images we see look like dog schyitt? We spent almost $1 trillion on NASA and this is what we get? Are you F'in kidding me?
I know this will be immediately shot down by a lot of people who have been brainwashed with Star Trek and Nasa lies, but those people have decided to not pay attention to the thousands of mistakes made by NASA as somehow the most intelligent people in the world, just overlook some basic things and overwrite Apollo mission tapes with re-runs of Friends or Seinfeld or something.
