A few Flat Earthers and Space Travel deniers seem to think that Falcon 9 landings are faked because of the live feed switching to different cameras (apparently recording a single event with multiple cameras is a conspiracy now?) or camera blackouts or glitches during the moment of touchdown. One such retrard who posts on YouTube under the username "Jeranism", is even holding a contest for people to submit their own "recreations" of the landing.
Here's my entry! For my video, I decided to use the raw footage of CRS-8 landing - clearly showing the uninterrupted and unedited footage of the Falcon 9 touching down on the drone ship Of Course I Still Love You.
That footage can be viewed on SpaceX's own channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYmQQ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pUAy... And it proves that there is nothing out of the ordinary with the camera cuts or camera fails in the landing. All it proves is that there may be transmission problems and the tech guy in control of which different video feeds go to air might chose to go from Camera #1 to Camera #2 at inappropriate moments.
Thumb up and forward it to Jeranism if you think I win.
