Re: ENDEAVOUR - and the spaced-out NASA efforts

Of course, they could have opted to show us normal-looking aerial shots (without those stupid chopper skids swivelling in front of 'the camera'). But I guess the less-than-genius-B-movie producers of the 9/11 movie-for-TV felt the need to make really, really, really sure that television viewers got...

Re: The Moon Hoax

I should also point out that this photo is referred to as the jump salute photo or something similar because the person in the photo is supposedly jumping up while saluting the flag -- the camera supposedly catching him in mid jump.
