Planetary Resources (James Cameron/NASA/Google)

If NASA faked the moon landings, does the agency have any credibility at all? Was the Space Shuttle program also a hoax? Is the International Space Station another one? Do not dismiss these hypotheses offhand. Check out our wider NASA research and make up your own mind about it all.

MIT’s Technology Review reports that this coming, April 24, a new space venture company will be announced at Charles Simonyi Space Gallery at The Museum of Flight in Seattle. A very interesting list of names are associated with the company, quite a few which have been mentioned previously on this forum, including the infamous James Cameron. The company is called Planetary Resources, which sounds like a mining company out of Cameron's own movie Avatar. I guess we know what they will be mining already - Unobtanium. Read the press release below.

Have you heard about the Curiosity rover, a rover now on course to Mars -- only in people's imaginations?

There were news that Cameron was devising and developing the cameras that the imaginary curiosity rover was going to use to take the fake photographs. I was following this scam (the curiosity rover launch and fanfare) up close. There was a last minute news in which they said that Cameron's cameras had not been able to make it to the mission.

Anyway we can anticipate the look of the fake pictures of the curiosity rover mission's to (an imaginary) Mars, coming soon :P
