It’s interesting we have never chosen to have a rover on the moon. At the very least, a relay station. A data gathering, sensory overload machine that could assist in many things like communication and data collecting. But we tend to skip over the moon and go to Saturn, Mars, even Pluto.
If we can do this in 1971
Shouldn’t we already have something like this in 2017:
Do you ever wonder what has space travel really given back to society. Compared to how much they have taken from it.
I was reading today about the final days of the Cassini space orove which had been observing Saturn for quite some time now. What purpose does this mission actually serve. Sure you can probably find some interesting stories on the resources NaSA provides for those. Lots of data, photos (well computer graphics mostly)
But the point really is, its all nothing but stories. No benefit for the ones here on this plane. Dream big they say, but they tell you scary stories all day to steal those dreams away.
Dont believe to know but know to believe. Believe in your self and your perspectives; not the stories.
The traditional aerial survey involves mounting a special gyroscopic, stabilized camera in the belly of an airplane and flying it at an elevation of between 15,000 feet and 30,000 feet, depending on the resolution of imagery you’re interested in. As the plane takes a predefined route over the desired area, it forms a series of parallel lines with about 40 percent overlap between lines and 60 percent overlap in the direction of flight. This overlap of images is what provides us with enough detail to remove distortions caused by the varying shape of the Earth’s surface.
