So we can safely say that an object that size couldn't ?
The images I posted are of the same object, all taken within two minutes of each other.
t is farther up the ...ummm...in fact, it is the first picture on the thread.
Again. On what do you base the size estimation?
I realize it is to big for a chair.
Of course it is.
It does seem to be something though doesn't it?
What makes you think it is still in orbit?
My question is, if it was so important, why has it not been taken out of orbit?
The pictures were taken from a shuttle.
You would think the space shuttle could get close enough to at last check it out, so to me that suggests junk, in all reality.
(Note, some may claim this is other man-made debris and not the Black Knight, and it may well be, but if so, I've seen nothing else conclusively identifying the rather large object in this pic or the other STS088 pics)
You don't have to. Such information does not come from NASA.
I just don't trust them to tell us if a big meteor is gonna hit us.
That's what the captions for the images say. And it is corroborated by mission reports. Yes, it is "space junk". Materials released during an EVA on shuttle mission 88.
NASA's official answer is it is space junk right? Did I read that right?
Are people arguing a piece of space debris in equatorial orbit is the Back Knight Polar Orbit?

As I can't sleep, lets take this back to basics.
What human made objects were in space in 1954?
edit on 2/6/13 by neformore because: (no reason given)
No mention that I can find of the orbit for those objects however the lead researcher says he was misquoted, that no such discovery was made.
What about the 1954 report though? That I do wonder about. That 1 or 2 objects that had a polar orbit?
