"A lie’s true power cannot be accurately measured by the number of people who believe its deception when it is told, it must be measured by the number of people who will go out after hearing it trying to convince others of its truth.” -- Dennis Sharpe
The photo in the link strikes me as odd as the earth as depicted does not appear to have a spherical sunset line but a rather jagged one. Perhaps it is due to how the print lines appear on the paper print out or even some sort of time lapse (but if this were the case with a long exposure there’d surely be more stars).
I’m not sure how many NASA photos have stars but this one has lots. Would someone really be able to pull out some star charts and verify this anyway? I’m not sure anyone is actually checking their work.
