No, conspiracies do better at hiding when there are as few of people in on it as possible, but spaceflight is very well employed. NASA alone has over 17 thousand people, many of them are specialists who wouldn't be fooled by trickery.>Russia and the US currently occupy the ISS together, so...
True, but the Soviet Union were very antagonistic against the US, especially during the height of the Cold War, and likewise for the US. If the conspiracy is real then all the US needed to do to stop the Sputnik panic that gripped the nation was to release the research that would expose the satellite as fake, but they didn't.>Satellites aren't the same thing, they're just on weather balloons anyway.
No. Satellites can't be balloons. Satellites have been tracked visually by many independent people and none of them noticed anything suspicious? Plus, the speed of which satellites move across the sky would be far too fast for balloons.>You just do it underwater.
Where are the documents then?>Ever heard of NDAs?
And those don't work on disgruntled engineers who lost their jobs due to NASA down-scaling. They don't work on people who are at their death bed. They don't work on people who think they're above the law or are seeking glory for exposing possibly the largest modern hoax. Plus, the Soviets had their moon program exposed despite years of them hiding it.>Still waiting for commercial spaceflight...
Have you not been keeping track of spaceflight? Commercial spaceflight has been around for years. SpaceX is a famous example. Rocket Lab is a fine example too.
