Black Knight Satellite - Documentary (480p)

The origin of the Black Knight legend is often "retrospectively dated" back to natural extraterrestrial repeating sources heard during the 1899 radio experiments of Nikola Tesla and long delayed echos first heard by amateur radio operator Jorgen Hals in Oslo, Norway in 1928. According to the Daily Express, "the noises from 1899 and 1928 remain a mystery, but the possible causes do not so far include an alien satellite, according to scientists." In 1973, Scottish author Duncan Lunan analyzed the long delayed radio echoes received by Hals and others and speculated that they could possibly originate from a 13,000 year old alien probe located in an orbit around the earth's moon. He suggested that the probe may have originated from a planet located in the solar system of star Epsilon Boötis. Lunan later retracted his conclusions, admitting he'd made "outright errors" and characterizing his methods as "unscientific". The Black Knight satellite is claimed by some conspiracy theorists to be an object approximately 13,000 years old of extraterrestrial origin orbiting Earth in near-polar orbit. Critics and mainstream academics have called it a conspiracy theory and myth that combines several unrelated stories. In 1954, newspapers ran stories citing a statement by UFO researcher Donald Keyhoe that the U.S. Air Force had reported that two satellites orbiting Earth had been detected. At this time no one had the technology to launch a satellite, however skeptics have noted that "Keyhoe had been promoting a UFO book at the time" and the news stories were likely written "tongue-in-cheek" and not intended to be taken seriously. In February 1960, TIME reported that the U.S. Navy had detected a dark object thought to be a Soviet spy satellite in orbit, however a follow-up article confirmed that the object was "the remains of an Air Force Discoverer VIII satellite that had gone astray". In 1963, astronaut Gordon Cooper supposedly reported a UFO sighting during his 15th orbit in Mercury 9 that was confirmed by tracking stations, but there is no evidence that this actually happened. Brian Dunning notes that this story appears in "virtually every UFO book about the Black Knight case", but says that no record of such an event was given by NASA, radar station personnel, or from any contemporary source. Dunning describes the story as "purely an invention of modern writers". An object photographed in 1998 during the STS-88 mission has been widely claimed to be the Black Knight satellite. Space journalist James Oberg considers it probable that the photographs are of a thermal blanket that was confirmed as lost during an EVA by Jerry L. Ross and James H. Newman. A British rocket called the Black Knight rocket that was used in conjunction with the Blue Streak missile program between 1958 and 1965 is unrelated to the Black Knight satellite legend. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Knight_satellite FAIR USE : Copyright Disclaimer under section 107 of the copyright act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as critisicm, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship and research.
