Image from tweet. Is this a double exposure? First one with the lights turned off for a long exposure to capture the dim light from the stars, and then a second short exposure with the lights turned on.

There aren't any star trails.  If it was a long exposure, either the stars would move and leave trails, or the camera would move with the stars and blur the ground.  So I think it was a double exposure, but just with different apertures and short exposures.  Or photoshop.

There are short star trails if you look at the full resolution picture. Could be a double exposure, but in today's world of digital photography, it's probably two different pictures stacked together using software.

Maybe they turned the lights out for the sky photo, but it would be easier to cheat and use a stock image of the night sky.

Looks like they used a stock image. A star trail looks to be in front of the light pole on the right!

Perhaps if the star track went straight across the pole, but with compression artifacts, this isnít a smoking gun.
While the conclusion may be correct, you canít really prove it at the pixel level of a JPEG.
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

This will be the 10th New Shepard mission and is dedicated to bringing eight NASA-sponsored research and technology payloads into space through NASAís Flight Opportunities program.

Updated NOTAM: "1330 to 2000 UTC Daily starting January 22 and ending January 23". That means on Tuesday or Wednesday - not Monday.

That is caused, as well, by the fact that the camera's objective lens has finite size. So, the right side of the lens can still see the star for a while after it has, for the center of the lens, passed behind the pole. A corollary: for lenses wider than the pole (or wire, or whatever), some part of the lens would always be receiving light from the star, so the star would never blink out.
