You could be a disinfo agent.
This might be real.

What grade did you drop out of school?
it uses solar panels and light from the sun to power itself.
OSB: How could such an idea be tested? TC: Although the 'bubble' model reproduces approximately the same supernova data as the Dark Energy model, the details of what one should expect to observe will be different. At present the supernovae observations are not quite good enough to tell the difference between the two models, but the upcoming supernovae missions that are being proposed should be able to gather enough data to decisively tell the two models apart. There are other data sets that could be used to test this model as well. The microwave background, for example. As yet the calculations of what one should expect the microwave radiation to look like in the 'bubble' model are not well understood. We are working on this now, and hope to have results soon. Others have suggested using distant galaxies as mirrors, so that by looking at radiation that is deflected off them towards us, we should be able to tell something about the existence, or not, of a giant 'bubble'. This is a very promising idea, but again the current observations do not yet appear quite good enough to decisively distinguish between the two models.

It would make a cool plot for a movie. I hope its more than a bug.

It is possible that the transmissions have been scrambled by one of the interstellar shock waves that buffet the satellite far into deep space.
