So many people sent me versions of this article that I had to blog about it.
But first, a little context. Do you recall that now famous (or, depending on your lights, infamous) video shot from the Space Shuttle in the now world-famous NTS-48 video? In that video, one saw several bright white "dots" moving in an intricate pattern, one is almost tempted to say in a "formation" of some sort, and then, dramatically, one of the "dots" that was moving along the LIM line executed a sudden and very acute turn of about 100+ degrees, accelerated abruptly, and went shooting out into space as a "shot" seemed to stream up from the Earth, aimed at where the dot had been before it executed its maneuver, a feat which suggested to many, including yours truly, that it was under some sort of intelligent control(as was the "shot" from the Earth). The fun then began, as many jumped on the video as "absolute proof" of the presence of ETs, and as NASA rushed to assure us that what we were looking at was merely ice particles from a water dump from the shuttle itself. That lasted until Dr. Jack Kasher of the University of Nebraska did a photo analysis of the whole video, and promptly denounced the "ice particle" theory. However, for some of us - myself included - the video wasn't so much about "ET" as about the possibility that we may have been given - either deliberately or inadvertently - a glimpse into some possible hidden technologies, both of a weapons nature, and of a propulsion nature, for as fast as the little "dot" darts away in the NTS 48 video at a very nimble couple of hundred thousand miles per hour(according to some estimates), it still wasn't "fast enough" to get from "interstellar there" to "here", all of which suggested not so much ETs, as hidden possibilities.
But now there's this little video making the rounds on the internet, of yet another set of "dots" seemingly flying up from the Earth and cruising leisurely on into space:
So what's my high octane speculation of the day? Well, let's assume we're looking at "something" and not just "dots" and let's assume this video is real and not yet another internet hoax. In which case, the dots don't appear to be candidates for the "ice particles from a water dump at the International Space Station" explanation, since they seem to be moving at slightly different speeds and in slightly different directions. Let's assume further that they may be a technology of some sort, and since they're chugging along at stellar pony-express speed, that they're secret American technologies (or someone else's). What interests me, in the light of these assumptions, is not so much anything that we might speculate about hidden technologies or propulsion systems and what have you, but rather, the fact that they were observed by the ISS, which means that whatever they are, at least the Russians know about the dots too, and this might indicate that either they know what they are, or that NASA knows what they are, and pulled the feed for possible security reasons. The ISS, in other words, is a perfect platform, in a certain sense, for the internationalization of the UFO issue and for a coordination of policy concerning such incidents. Houston to Baikonur on secure channel: "Did you see that?" Baikonur to Houston on the same channel: "Yes we saw it."
And that takes us back to yesterday's blog about those Russo-American space cooperation talks regarding Mars... and whatever "stuff", if any, might be there. If they're having such talks, rest assured they're talking about whatever it is that videos like this occasionally capture. The real fun for high octane speculation purposes begins when you imagine the following conversation: Baikonur "It's not ours, is it yours?" Houston: "No, it's not ours either. And if it's not ours, and it's not yours, and if we're both telling the truth, then - " (Both togther) "whose is it?" Calls to London, Berlin, Tokyo, and Beijing don't turn up any answers either.
See you on the flip side...
