The STS-75 "tethered satellite", that was swarmed by UFOs on NASA video as it drifted away due to a broken tether, used the very same "tether" that had previously broken on an earlier STS-46 mission while the same "experiment" was being performed as on the on the STS-75 mission. Even though the astronauts trained on a brand new tether for the mission, NASA managers chose to use the remainder of the previously flawed "tether" from the failed STS-46 mission, because they said they felt it had "less" overall use than the new one, which was made especially for the STS-75 mission. The new tether was tested and ready to carry the 100 million dollar satellite. In spite of this, NASA re-used the old tether. This news was admitted by the "science team" at a press conference immediately after the tether broke and the satellite was '"lost in space". This was never mentioned again by NASA! Does it mean that somebody at NASA wanted the tether to break? After all, NASA has now declared the STS-75 mission a success!
