hi all,ive been searching for a full rotation film of the planet earth,
not a computer generated or animated version,
but a film showing a full rotation,
i cant seem to find any,so i thought i would ask you clever people,if you know of any...thanks..
Sorry I cant help you out but I wanted to mark this thread and see if any scientist types might come to your aid .I have heard that the earth does
rotate and I have a tendency to believe it but seeing we have some that think we should fly to Mars and other worlds a simple film of our earth
rotating would be neat to look at ..I can only assume that it might have to be filmed from the moon ....S&F
I am wondering if there is actually any real time footage of the earth doing a full revolution of 360 degrees.
To record such a film would mean obviously that it has to be done from a view point where the whole of the earth is visible to the camera; the camera
would need to be well out there to fit the earth into the frame.
The point from which the filming is done would necessitate it being a static viewing point maintained for a period of 24 hours.
The craft carrying the camera would have to be both far enough away and to remain in exactly the same space for 24 hours. Is it possible for a craft
to be piloted and remain completely static in space?
Also it would take 24 hours to watch the film in real time; it would be very slow indeed. It could be speeded up to say 1440 times and could be
watched in a minute.
