Jim does get things wrong. Jim called me names when I said that the STS-75 Tether mission I released had used the same tether that it used on an earlier failed "tether" mission. I had to post a press conference by NASA... with them saying that it was the same failed "tether" that was they reused that had failed again. Jim was wrong.
Jim had to back away from the official NASA explanation , right here at ATS, explaining that the UFOs zooming around space...during a search for the MIR by NASA shuttle cameras...were "SHOOTING STARS" ...meteors!!! Jim agreed that they are not shooting stars at 200 miles up! So why did NASA CAP COM go on & on along with the astronauts (including Story Musgrave) saying they were Meteors when they HAD to know better?
Do not let these skeptics shout 'case closed'! Keep an open mind. To glorify & magnify the skeptics such as Mr. Oberg is a mistake. They are just doing there job keeping us all in line.
During launch, a leak occurred in the Shuttle's reaction control system, causing propellant to spew in a cone-shaped pattern, "like a snowstorm for five miles up into space," according to Commander Jim Wetherbee. Flight controllers worried that the propellant could contaminate the Soyuz's optical sensors, needed in preparation for reentering Earth's atmosphere. But the leak lessened as the Shuttle neared Mir and the two ground control teams agreed to proceed with the rendezvous.
So you'd like it not to be debris, therefore it can't be debris? That's a bit disingenuous, don't you think?

Right , we have to assume that's what we seeing in the video's is just that , or something else I don't know but it's moving to fast IMO to call it debris . Does debris fly faster then the ISS ,is it possible?
