So, I saw a video on the NBC Nightly News taken by one of the astronauts, starting about 25 minutes before the shuttle exploded. It showed them all laughing and chatting and pointing the camera at each other. Tom Brokaw said the video was, amazingly, found in the wreckage and, so far in the tape, was in perfect shape. Then he said, “NASA says the video cuts off five minutes before the shuttle exploded, that the remainder of the tape was damaged.”
Now. I’m no conspiracy theorist–but how could the first 20 minutes of the tape be in perfect condition and the last five minutes destroyed? I strongly suspect NASA just doesn’t want us to see the crew panicking and blowing up . . .
