|Remember the scene from MIB where 'K' zooms in on his wife and watches her live. How close are we to that ?|
After a quick search, I found a few videos which showed scenes of an area with some traffic activity but it wasn't that zoomed in. As far as images go, I haven't found any other image source providing a better definition image than what Google Maps provide.
The American government had used live satellite feed while carrying out the Bin Laden operation ( Source of Information: Documentary | Correct me if wrong ).
Are there any images/videos publicly available which demonstrate the limits of cameras in space directed towards earth ?
If not publicly available, can you describe how a possible image/video might look like and what are the current limits for those cameras ?
