When I saw the "official" China spacewalk video on TV, I immediately thought it was a fake. Just like the rocket launch news were, released some
time before any real rocket launch did even happen...
I think the official video of the Chinese spacewalk could as well be CGI. Today's movie industry can very easily produce such nice, clean videos that
seem to be filmed with only two cameras pointing at each other. As long as there are no human faces and other easily-recognized-by-us-humans figures
to be seen, videos made with CGI can look very realistic. However, sometimes they are just too clean to be realistic.
But about these other videos where the astronauts (sorry... Taikonauts) are not visible, they look like more realistic space videos really taken from
the Chinese spacecraft. They look so much different from the spacewalk video. Why? Did they use several different cameras for different purposes? I
don't think so.
In the video without the Chinese taikonauts being visible, there are some pulsating lights flying past the spacecraft, which have been claimed to be
satellites, just like in the STS-75 and STS-80 footage. But how many satellites are there in the very low earth orbit (LEO) that the space walk was
supposed to happen? I believe the pulsating lights are something else, something that is not suitable to be released to the general public. Yet they
will be explained away as being satellites.
At the height of just 341 kilometers from the Earth's surface, there are not very many satellites, as they would require refueling every now and then
due to the orbital decay which is caused by the slight atmospheric friction that is still noticeable at those heights. This is roughly the same orbit
height as the ISS space station has, but ISS is frequently refueled in order to avoid the fate of Skylab and MIR. Without refueling, the satellites
and space stations this close to Earth cannot maintain their orbits and will inevitably enter the atmosphere and burn there, just as Skylab and MIR
I smell a conspiracy, a propagandist conspiracy -- With some real footage!
