    hrrrmm... last i heard that was not possible as the layers of air around earth distorts light thus you cannot get that perfect a picture.
    From what i heard, the best was just physical atributes and not a face as you cannot see that small a detail.

    or i could be just wrong.

    Anything constant can be corrected. I would say that the limiting factor lies elsewhere.

    What you are speaking is exactly what the governement wants you to think. Thats what they told the media in the boat crisis thing to get out of revealing more detailed photos.

    what i said was based on physics and of how light gets refracted when passing thru the atmosphere.

    that is why NASA built the Hubble space telescope, its cause ground telescopes see stars and other planets as 'fuzzed up'.

    and about saying that's what the government wants me to think... well how about the government also wants u to think that they have things more powerful then they actually have (proof: refer back to the cold war).

    Does it really matter whether they can see us clearly or not? After all we can't be important enough to have spy satallites focused on us 24/7 anyway :?:

    Oh thanks Kay, now I'm just a bit more depressed.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
