Awesome.

Fifty years ago, 5 unmanned lunar orbiters circled the moon, taking extremely high resolution photos of the surface. They were trying to find the perfect landing site for the Apollo missions. They would be good enough to blow up to 40 x 54ft images that the astronauts would walk across looking for the great spot. After their use, the images were locked away from the public until after the bulk of the moon landings, as at the time they would have revealed the superior technology of the USA’s spy satellite cameras, which the orbiters cameras were designed from.

55 years ago it would be called a conspiracy theory if you told anyone about the advanced camera systems the military had

A medium resolution LOIRP image is about 700 megabytes. A High resolution image, broken into three parts is over 2 gigabytes…

A high resolution digital photo can be over 10 gigabytes. I've worked with them. You wouldn't believe the ability to zoom in. A really high resolution digital photo can be 200 gigabytes. While I've never worked on one, I have looked at one.

Since I've been out of the field for a very long time, they might be even larger than that now.

Like with the moon photos, they never revealed the level of detail they had


Because it’s war
