No evidence of the existence of the poles?! :O
Sounds like a crisis in Japan! This may be more appropriate in the music or cooking forum
But on topic, I think the reason as stated above is almost correct, imaging satellites aren't geostationary, com satellites are, but the poles
aren't included as the parallax distortion is too advanced to be orthorectified into a clear image as taken from the closest orbit.
Also, imaging satellites require adequate reflection of sunlight for good quality, thus at the poles this is not always possible.
Also they can't have us seeing the giant UFO under the ice from space, etc
