The following short film is lengthy. It lasts 25 minutes. I am posting this video because it has so many photographs along with the IDs that you can use to search the NASA archives. You can search for them at http://www.nasaimages.org/. You could look at some of these images and discount them as an anomalies but it is the entire collection that drives the question "Is this really happening". This video is made far more compelling by the inclusion of the astronaut interview and the conversations had between mission control and those on the space station.
Also the amazing footage about "The Tether Experiment" was real. It was an attempt to capture energy from the ionospheric electrons in outer space. You can read more about the experiment at the NASA website found at http://www.nasa.gov/centers/marshall/capabilities/space_tethers.html
