CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – NASA mission controllers are tracking a mystery object hovering between the space shuttle Atlantis and Earth, and traveling at roughly the same speed as the orbiter, agency officials said Tuesday.

“Right now they’re just tying to figure out exactly what it is, how far away it is,” NASA spokesperson Kimberly Harle told SPACE.com. “It’s pretty much assessing the whole situation.”

Harle said that at 2:45 a.m. EDT (0645 GMT), just after Atlantis comple

I just hope it is not part of the shuttle that came loose. That would be very bad news for the astronauts.

I was just about to post this, saw on CNN

NASA engineers are checking into a baffling sight of a mystery object below the shuttle that mission control spotted at about 2:45 a.m EDT Tuesday with a video camera in the shuttle's cargo bay.

The object, which circled the Earth in the same orbit as the shuttle and is of undetermined size, probably came out of the shuttle's cargo bay because some jets had just been fired, shaking the orbiter, NASA spokesman Doug Peterson said.

"It's something that we didn't expect, but it's something that we're taking a real close look at," Peterson said.

I was just watching it on CNN. They said it appears to be non metallic because there isnt a reflection. I was trying really hard to watch it, but was fuzzy.. it almost looked like it was tumbling... like end over end... weird..

Good find.


4 articles up on google, ie:



Mission Control notified the astronauts of the observation at 9 a.m. CDT, and asked them to delay plans to stow a video antenna.

Peterson said the request would allow the astronauts to make an unscheduled examination of the shuttle using cameras on Atlantis' robot arm. The antenna would transmit the views to Mission Control.

However, it was not clear whether the survey could take place later today or Wednesday.

If the survey was scheduled for Wednesday, NASA would postpone the shuttle's planned landing at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Yeah, look how secretive and evil NASA is. If NASA is so hellbent on deceiving the public, why would they openly admit that there is an unidentified object near the shuttle?
