Re: Latest Nikon gear to land up in space
Feb 23, 2011

Am I the only one that thinks it’s a little suspicious that the Russians are suddenly bringing up more camera equipment as less Americans are leaving the ISS? With the majority of the capsules now being Russian owned (two of those use propellant like Progress capsules, which essentially give Russia free reign of the ISS’s movement) and the dependency on Americans on the Soyuz rockets to ferry them up, Russia has a perfect opportunity to push their true agenda with the ISS (intelligence and missile defense, obviously). By 2012, the last American will have withdrawn from the space station, leaving a primarily (if not entirely) Russian crew. This picture says it all… astronaut ab workouts - the two on the right that appear to be very absorbed using the camera system are cosmonauts, and the astronaut innocently working out with an ab belt is on the left. Now does that look like a microcosm of what’s going on or what?
