Is it NASA or Gravity?

One of the most blatant examples of “revelation of the method”.

NASA is essentially telling you that they, as Space Hoax division of Hollywool, made the movie Gravity. After all, they’ve been making movies of space since Kennedy.

NASA tweets real 'Gravity' space pics

NASA is sharing real photos taken in space that look like they came straight out of the Oscar-nominated film Gravity.

Further confusion in this article, which is in fact the purpose of disinformation, another main pillar of psyOps.

picked up seven trophies at the Academy Awards. The film’s striking realism—and its still-growing $270 million in revenue—has been hailed as a victory for science and space exploration. Too badGravity has a high-profile critic: NASA.

As Wired reports, the agency seems to have taken a three-step approach: “acknowledge, support, and deflect.” Although the film didn’t paint space exploration in a particularly flattering light—kids probably don’t dream of shooting into space only to float around in spacesuits with nothing to grab on to—NASA successfully harnessed the film’s spectacular majesty to come out ahead.

In a truly savvy publicity move, NASA’s Twitter feed lit up as the Oscars telecast began, tweeting 31 times with a blend of admiration for the movie and gentle promotion of real-life space travel, using the hashtag #RealGravity.

Fotoforensics and an attack

Be the 1st to vote.

A tool for checking fakery was DDoss-ed the other day, possibly due to a Syria photo that shows signs of fakery.

Yesterday evening, on Feb 27 at 5:18pm localtime (00:18 GMT), the FotoForensics server came under a large distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. They generated nearly 8Gb/sec before the system went offline, and the ISP informed me that it topped out at around 30Gb/sec. (If your home network is a 100Mb network, then this is 300x more network traffic than your home can withstand.) The outage lasted 24 hours.
