Robert Bigelow launched two prototype space hotel modules with army-surplus Russian missiles about ten years ago [I was his guest at the second launch in Siberia], and both satellites had external cameras for PR viewing. What do you suppose they showed? He operated them from a personal control center in Nevada.

Second, even those satellites that are gathering photos of the Earth do not have "live feeds", the photos are downloaded from Earth, usually at specific dates.
After processing, they are sent to the Planetary Data System, from where anyone can download them.


Exactly.

But do you have *any* idea how many cameras are in space?

They number in the thousands...

And DIA has access to all of them if they are US based if they need them.

*All* of them.

They have to agree to that before launch. In every case.

No worries though - we have so many "eyes" up there, trying to sort through and catalog all of the images is the big problem. Having access to the images is a non-issue - trust me.

Check it out. I know I'm correct.
