I have never bought into a conspiracy theory before, but there are some oddities in a couple of youtube clips concerning the recent chinese space walks that I must admit I find convincing. It bothers me because the clips has several hallmarks of any other nutty conspiracy theory (which makes me feel all dirty), from the shotgun approach to the multible exclamation points in the title, but still there are things in the footage that just seems bizarre. I realize that conspiracy theory arguments often sound very convincing at first, until the real and rather mundane explanation is presented.
I'm not really interested in kneejerk dismissals, but well-reasoned arguments if possible.
Here's one of the videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tri2l7OHpGw
Perhaps the one I find most convincing is the "bubble", or whatever it is, that is flying upwards, but then enters the frame again in the upper left corner heading in another direction, in 2:16-2:23 in the video. At 2:54-2:58 the cord does seem to float upwards, apparently independently of the movements of the astronaut. It seems to me like he's actively trying to prevent it from floating upwards.
Would like to hear some thoughts, thanks.
