With so many information hungry people out there regarding Area 51, why has nobody ever successfully shot a rocket with a streaming camera attached
into the section of Area 51 congested with buildings, hangers, etc.? Maybe it has happened and the footage exists out there, but I've never heard of
it. If it were to be done and all you obtained from the footage was a still shot of an area of the facility, it wouldn't matter how uninteresting the
footage is because what you have is footage taken inside the main facility of Area 51 as it is today! I've seen all sorts of rockets available for
purchase by the public. Sure, some cost upwards into the $10,000+ range and obviously a lot are much cheaper, but some I have seen do have the
potential to be shot off from a location outside the restricted perimeter and land right smack dab in the middle of the main facility, as long as you
have your calculations correct.
In my mind here are the ways I see this happening. You shoot off the rocket somewhere outside the perimeter at an angle so it will arc and come down
somewhere in the facility in a hard landing fashion or if you more prefer a soft landing, have a parachute deploy once the rocket is at the correct
position over the facility so that any potential wind or other factors will bring it down in an area you're hoping for. In any of these attempts make
sure the camera is positioned in the best manner possible depending on how you plan for the rocket to come down. The camera would be streaming the
footage to a location where it would be recorded and saved because obviously you'd never see that camera again.
Why has this never been done? Is it truly not possible in terms of mechanics or has the fear of arrest and prosecution deterred even the most
psychotic out there? I'm no expert, but it just seems by now someone would have accomplished doing this.
