According to SpaceX, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently told the company to apply for a license for its cameras equipped to the rocket. A federal law passed in 1992 requires commercial spacecraft taking images or video of Earth to have this license, but it’s an unusual demand considering SpaceX and other private space companies have already streamed footage of Earth from orbit a number of times before. Plus, the NOAA is typically preoccupied with studying the climate rather than monitoring commercial satellites. So what gives? One theory is that SpaceX’s high-profile launch of “Starman” in CEO Elon Musk’s Tesla this February could have caught the NOAA’s eye.
You know… I can’t help but wonder. Could it be in the slightest, a possibility that stricter regulation of such footage may be a result of discrepancies between everyone out there posting footage?
You know, like the footage shown above that suggests one entire half of the earth contains zero land. Or…
What about this above footage that shows one entire half of the earth containing zero water? It could just be ignorant ol’ me, but I tend to side with the possibility that these discrepancies are beginning to become a little bit of a problem for the one percent.
Got’a lay down them regulations… you know.
2 Peter 3:5 – For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water.
Who are we kidding, right? I’m ignorant.
According to actual “live commercial footage“, the following is a closer representation of what our planet actually looks like.
The one percent better start regulating who can share footage if they intend to keep the long standing status quo alive.
