Sure. Why not talk about it again.

The Black Knight satellite is a fine tale which, as such tales do, has grown in the telling. The 1953 "sighting" is a bit iffy and it's sort of hard to say that it had anything to do with the 1960 detection.

But last week the Department of Defense proudly announced that the satellite had been identified. It was a space derelict, the remains of an Air Force Discoverer satellite that had gone astray.

The claim that there were no polar orbiting satellites, along with some other claims, just isn't true. That was the whole idea behind the Discoverer satellites.

Discoverer 2 was a cylindrical satellite designed to gather spacecraft engineering data and to attempt ejection of an instrument package from orbit for recovery on Earth. The spacecraft was launched into a 239 km x 346 km polar orbit by a Thor-Agena A booster. The spacecraft was three-axis stabilized and was commanded from Earth. After 17 orbits, on 14 April 1959, a reentry vehicle was ejected.

There is a discrepancy .
It doesn't look like true polar orbits were possible in 1960.
10 satellites were launched between 1960 and 1965 but only the last
2 were made polar orbits.

Thanks for going out into the reality world and doing actual research. You deserve encouragement and a genuine 'A' for effort.

But you have to look more closely at what the website is about -- weather satellites.

The ten satellites you refer to were weather satelllites of the 'Tiros' series, launched by NASA.



From April 1, 1960 to July 2, 1965 ten TIROS satellites were launched. The satellites ensured continuity of data throughout the early years. The first four TIROS satellites had an inclination of 48 degrees and the next four had an inclination of 58 degrees, thus they were not polar-orbiting. The last two TIROS were the first polar-orbiting meteorological satellites.


The polar orbit satellites were in the 'Discoverer' program launched by the USAF from 1959 onwards.

Go look them up and report back.

But no big deal -- you've taken your first important step toward reality, and footing isn't always as sure as it is when you just deal with imaginary subjects. There are 'right answers' and 'wrong answers', and your first swing is a 'miss'. You'll get better.

Please persist in your efforts.

Well, let's hope it comes back, and this time, the mystery is solved..

Americans made it, lied that they didn't make it, caused panic, increased space technology.

And I suppose they also made it invisible to thousands of amateur astronomers and skywatchers around the world, for decades? How did they do that? And then, why did they stop doing it for all subsequent satellites?

Think your theory through to consequences, please.

I know this is an old thread but i want to give out some information.

The message transmitted by the probe was NOT in English. It was in mathematical cipher that was decoded.
Mathematically, every star has same name so it is easy to "translate" SUN from Mathematics to your own language. Same with any other word.

The probe never left. It is being studied at the moment. What do you think the new mini space shuttle is doing in space for 200+ days? Testing systems for 200+ days?

I understand i am not permitted to substantiate this information in any way and maybe it is better you just label it as a delusion/speculation.

But....

I'd love to know the truth, but i fear the magic will be lost.

Don't fear that -- there's plenty of magic in sleuthing genuine space secerets about mystery satellites and missions.

You just have to get through the garble curtain.

It's worth the effort.
