Satellite photos above the 70th parallel north/south
I once read from someone who claimed to be "in the know" that the government censors or does not permit satellite imagery (beyond a very low resolution) above a certain parallel, both north and south. If I remember correctly, the parallel numer was something like 70th or 80th. (I think I read this info here, or on a similar site).

Has anyone here heard or read something similar about a secret ban on north pole/south pole satellite photos? I think I remember this source stating that in the arctic/antarctic treaties there was some stipulation about this.

Anyway, I have not had much luck when I've tried to find out more about this, hoping someone here might know something.

I've heard that at a certain point, on military maps, beyond the arctic circle, the maps are marked "BORDERLINE," and nobody dare flies above that point.

Most satellites fly over the population centers. Simply, no one lives at the north or south poles. There are some newer satellites that are environmental payloads that have polar orbits.

Re: Satellite photos above the 70th parallel north/south
If there are magnetic currents at the poles, then why do Soviet and American nuclear missiles have trajectories over the north pole? Wouldn't the electromagnetic energy cause havoc with the guidance systems? Especially guidance systems from the '50's and 60's?

Sounds fishy the government would want to close off all that area when nobody could live there anyways.

I have some of my father's USAF flight maps when he was a Navigator/Bombadier flying SAC B-47's, B-58's during height of the Cold War. They have flight paths, station/hold points inside the Arctic Circle (above 60 N). They're in storage back in US, otherwise I'd scan them to prove you wrong. The only thing remarkable was the markings for compass corrects due to proximity to Earth's magnetic North Pole.

Edit: I also saw the "classified" maps showing NATO/US and Soviet strategic 'assets'. But I don't have those maps. I remember my mom bringing him dinner when he was at the SAC alert pad. He'd come to the gate with armed security guards and I remember him having a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist. Those were the arming codes, targets, etc. He later told me that there were pics of bombing targets taken from the ground. It was obvious that we had operatives inside the Soviet Union. 40 yrs after retirement from USAF, he still had secrets he wouldn't reveal to me. When I held 'Q' security clearance, I understood why. He knew of "geopolitical sensitive" locations of US nukes.

Nothing happens. There is no one patrolling them, per se.

But should something happen, and you need help/rescue, there won't be anyone coming.

And due to that reasoning, nothing flies over the exact poles. They always are to the side. Even polar orbital satellites do not go over the magnetic poles.

But no images from above or below the 70th is total BS.

That's why inertial navigation (gyros) are used. My father in pre-GPS days could navigate a bomber over 6,000 nm to its target over polar navigation routes. He even taught me navigation using a combination of celestial fixes with inertial navigation equipment and accurate time references. These methods aren't impacted by geomagnetic interference. I've still got his sextant in storage.

Of course they also used LORAN/ADB radios as well. However, those are subject to interference and jamming.

How do you think spacecraft and astronauts navigated in orbit and to the moon?
