Post Chinese Space Walk Faked?   Posted on: Thu Oct 09, 2008 12:02 pm
Inside China Today (http://insidechinatoday.net/2008/10/02/communist-regime-fake-space-walk-by-shenzhou-vii/) reports that the Chinese space walk by the Shenzhou 7 crew may have been faked in a water basin:

Quote:
In addition, astronaut Liu Buoming handed out the five-star flag to the extravehicular Zhai Zhigang, however Zhai did not wave the flag, but the flag appeared to be moving on its own as if swinging in the wind in a state of weightlessness, and even kept hitting the mask of Zhai Zhigang, like waving in a strong wind.

I think it wasn't faked.. I looked at the reports and the youtube movie etc... and it really looks real.

Why would they fake it if they have already proven they can put a man into space, you would think this would not be too hard to accomplish since all the hard work of getting them there has been done.
But it is China, so who knows....

There is a guy holding the flag, but his motions have nothing to do with the flag moving!!

The Guy is Neil Armstong.

Seriously people, how is this 'not waving the flag'?
