Submission Chinese Spacewalk Faked

dslbrian writes: The Chinese spacewalk previously posted looks like it might not have made it to space at all. In fact Inside China Today first noticed and subsequently Gearlog posted that by careful inspection of the uploaded video one can see several indicators that the whole thing was faked and shot in a pool. These include bubbles rising from the astronaut's helmet, and reflections of lighting arrays in the mirrored sections of their spacesuits.
