    The question, of course, is why?

    That is the big question here. And why are the space agencies of Russia, Europe, China, Japan and India participating in the image fakery? It would be interesting to compare the images published by those other space agencies to what we get from NASA. I wonder if anyone has done that.

    The obviously fake Big Blue Marble pictures are unique to NASA, as far as I know. What other sorts of images are only put out by NASA, even though other space agencies should be taking similar pictures?

      What about the joint NASA image mosaic of Antarctica?

      allegedly taken by LANDSAT 7, a NASA – USGS op.


      The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), created LIMA from more than 1,000 Landsat ETM+ scenes.

      The ESA has its own satellite in a polar orbit and passes over Antarctica every 101 minutes, allegedly, called ENVISAT.

      There are surveying flights occurring in coastal areas under the Landbridge program
