Is the NASA program only a "smoke screen" to hide it's real intentions?
Some of the conspiracy theories attributed to NASA over the years have been just crazy that somebody actually comes up with them.I can't play the video but I suspect NASA does exactly what it says on the tin.
You're talking about NASA of days gone past; their budgets are nothing like they used to be which is why so many projects have been outright cancelled and why most of the ones still on the books have been scaled back. These days you can find them doing experiments with off-the-shelf commercial & consumer components and vendors. For example, they are starting to embrace the Android operating system and its devices with programs like PhoneSat (NASA - PhoneSat Flight Demonstrations).The only "concealed" truth about NASA is that it manages to spend twice or three times as necessary on most of its projects; too often wasted cash since one or more elements of the project are deeply flawed by conceptual, design, or manufacturing flaws.
