I wouldn't mind seeing the originals but I bet they're pretty boring.

It's hard to be mad at post-processing. All camera sensor output looks pretty awful until it has been manipulated quite a bit.

Wow amazing, the trade winds created from the Coriolis force are clearly visible, along with the mini storms that arise. The jet streams are also visible with the CG, so I don't mind them. Human eyes are not so good at discerning temperature and density variations after all, augmented visuals is better IMO.

lol the satellite isnt up there snapping jpegs and raws

it records data and sends it back to base where that data is constructed into pictures.

Hahahahaha... too funny...

For real though these are 100% unrealistic photos... I'd like someone to send me a real photo of earth that looks nearly this good.

What is this anti-science drivel that is let remain on this site? This is absurd.

Not only do we have pictures of that quality, but you don't even know what a realistic picture of Jupiter should look like.

Oh, and about that last one, it's from this:


Keep in mind, this is also with rinkydink cameras on the ISS, let alone a multi-million dollar imaging device that they used on the Jupiter mission. Put simply, there's not much science in getting good visible-spectrum shots of the Earth, but there was for Jupiter because they've never seen these parts of Jupiter from this close. So actually good equipment went to do the job. We have plenty of satellites taking much, much better shots of Earth, but they're not posting them on NASA's website for entertainment.

Put simply: the Hubble telescope takes great pictures of nebulas and galaxies. That one points up. Most don't.

Of course they are photoshopped. There's no such thing as a real picture of even earth that aren't a blurry mess, let alone these planets. And it's really no secret. The ones denying it have never done their homework. There's quite a clear example explained on NASA's own website about how they compiled one of the most famous pictures of earth, the so called "Blue Marble". They probably use the same method for all of these.

https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/blogs/elegantfigures/2011/10/06/crafting-the-blue-marble/

There's maybe one exception, and that's the Apollo 17 mission. And I say maybe, because who is to say these didn't go through the same treatment?

Also note a few things;

- Earth is presumably not perfectly round, and yet the pictures we see are practically perfectly round for some reason.
- The 'flat' map we generally use is not representative of country sizes. Generally North America is portrayed as about equally as big as Africa, but this is not the case, not even close. And yet the "Blue Marble" still has North America and Africa practically the same size.

Sorry to burst your bubble but those are all processed images. Why did it take them over a year to release the footage? Those are all edited images. The first true live feed of NASA can be found here, and it is the first time they are using 'normal' cameras. And note that this footage is supposedly "HD".

Get your conspiracy theory crackpot anti-science nonsense out of here. It has no place in a science and technology forum.

I have posted mainly NASA links. There is nothing conspiratorial or anti-science about that. Denying what is right in front of your face is anti-science. And seeing how soon you replied also shows that you have not taken the time to read and understand the links. Your personal attack and attempt at poisoning the well is weak and baseless.

The Earth is perfectly round from the perspective of the planet as a whole, the slightly squashed shape is so miniscule you cannot see it.

And in the blue marble images I have seen Africa looks much bigger than North America so I don't know what you are on about.

Are people really saying these NASA images of Jupiter are fake because all space images are processed? Getting real color is very important to NASA and they have gotten good at it. The color information may come from a variety of sensors but it is "real" in the sense it looks very much like it would if viewed in person. I have been impressed both by the recent images and image processing technology that went into acquiring them.

Thanks OP. smile.gif

No, it doesn't, because you don't understand what scientific image processing involves. Comparing it to a processed game screenshot is ludicrous - the depths of your ignorance means I can't even accurately discuss it with you, let alone convince you of how far you have to go to understand.
