UFO Conspiracy Linked to NASA Livestream Cut
On July 9th of 2016, video feed from NASA was cut during a transmission when an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) came into view. This is not the first time a transmission was cut during a broadcast when a UFO appeared on screen. Last November, Scott Waring saw a blue horseshoe or diamond shaped object before the transmission cut for an hour. When the transmission resumed a smaller white object could be seen in the distance. Waring sent the footage to UFO Sightings Daily and it was later sent to Tyler Glockner, who has a popular YouTube channel called “secureteam10” who reposted it with narration. The sighting came within two weeks of Jadon Beeson seeing a cigar shaped UFO before the transmission was cut.
NASA Denies UFO Conspiracy
According to NASA, they never cut the signal to hide UFOs. They say that the video transmission is lost sometimes due to a drop in the signal. A NASA spokesperson told CNET that “The station regularly passes out of range of the Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS) used to send and receive video, voice and telemetry from the station. For video, whenever we lose signal the cameras will show a blue screen or a preset video slate.” They claim that the objects seen in the footage could be meteors, space debris from rocket launches, lights from Earth or reflections from the ISS windows.
These answers haven’t been enough to satisfy UFO conspiracy theorists and believers though, who have seen too much evidence of government cover ups to not trust their eyes. Some believe that the Chinese space station module that got lost, the Tiangong-1, may be the UFO seen in the NASA footage.
Tesla’s Search for Life on Mars
Nikola Tesla, the Serbian genius inventor who discovered radio waves, was a believer in aliens. In 1899, he conducted experiments from his home/lab in Colorado Springs where he built a gigantic tower in order to experiment with wireless power. In 1923, he told a reporter from the Albany Telegram “I have a deep conviction that highly intelligent beings exist on Mars. While experimenting in Colorado…I obtained extraordinary experimental evidence of the existence of life on Mars. I had perfected a wireless receiver of extraordinary sensitiveness, far beyond anything known, and I caught signals which I interpreted as meaning 1–2–3–4. I believe the Martians used numbers for communication because numbers are universal.”
The Mystery of the Black Knight
A UFO conspiracy theory has existed that proposes that Tesla was actually communicating with the Black Knight, an alien satellite that orbits the Earth in a polar orbit. The Ham Radio operator received and decoded a series of signals and interpreted them to be a star chart of the Epsilon Bootes Star System which, according to the signals, is where the Black Knight originated from, 13,000 years ago. Monitor agencies around the world report that they have received signals from the Black Knight and it has been photographed and seen quite frequently over the last century across the world. It could be that NASA itself has now picked up images of the satellite although the truth will remain unknown.
Was Tesla overreaching his scientific perspective? Are we to simply accept NASA’s word at face value? Is the Black Knight really just a thermal blanket as experts claim or is it an ancient extraterrestrial satellite? UFO conspiracy theorists will no doubt continue to investigate in the hopes that, with enough footage, some truth will be revealed.
