Now, obviously I am several days behind on posting this seeing as to how this particular SpaceX launch was three days ago. I have just been a bit busy I guess. That doesn’t mean I didn’t watch it live though. And yes, I have a few comments to make regarding this footage. Keep in mind this is the condensed version. The Live version was much longer and a little more detailed.
#1.) The rocket starts returning to the earth at a whopping 20 miles high and the camera cuts just before it becomes too obvious.
#2.) Assuming they did manage to make it into space despite logical observation number one, the earth is convex at more than 100 miles of altitude.
#3.) The dreaded camera cut. You got to love it. Honestly, SpaceX wouldn’t even be the same without it.
What a joke. This is what you would call slight of hand in my book. I think Nixon put it best when he said the following.
“The American people don’t believe anything unless they see it on television.” – Richard M. Nixon, U.S. President
Space is fake. Get over it.
