In this article we will be taking a closer look at the famous Black Knight satellite conspiracy that has been attracting media attention since 1960. Is this satellite nothing more than a Russian attempt at signal jamming or spying?
Or is there something more sinister behind it?
Let’s take a closer look…
Did Tesla Discover the Signal?
Many conspiracy theorists firmly believe that Tesla was the first person to stumble across the strange space signal, back in 1899. At the time he had just developed a high-voltage, radio transmission setup.
Tesla claimed that the signal he discovered was clearly repeated periodically and had some sort of order to it’s broadcast.
He spent a few weeks studying this signal in detail and came to the conclusion that it was a message from a extraterrestrial group.
Tesla claimed that his in-depth studies show that the signal was coming from the planet of Mars…but this claim was quickly rubbished…by his own studies…when he came out and admitted that he got the Mars angle wrong!
The Black Knight Satellite
A strange satellite was discovered in the late 1950’s in orbit around Earth. Initially the Russians were thought to have been behind the vessel, but before long it was determined that the satellite was neither Russian or American.
Experts looking into the vessel then claimed that it seemed way too heavy to have been launched from Earth, and it travelled at speeds much higher than a normal satellite could reach.
They also concluded that the schedule of the satellite was very mixed up – it didn’t seem to stick to a regular orbit pattern at any one time.
Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper (1927-2004) eventually came out and claimed that he had picked up the strange satellite signal when he took part in the Mercury flight. He also claimed that his ground control contacts also picked up the strange signal.
Unfortunately Cooper went back on this statement not long after he made it, and signed off on transcripts claiming he was lying and he never heard any sort of signal on his flight.
Why did he go back on his word?
Was he forced into this action by authorities?
The Black Knight Satellite Conspiracy
In 1988 the astronaut team aboard the Space Shuttle Orbiter Endeavour actually managed to take a few photographs of the strange satellite in orbit.
Many ufologists got very excited over the images, but numerous sceptics came forward and claimed that the images were nothing more than a thermal blanket that had escaped it’s latching on the nearby International Space Station.
There are numerous articles online claiming that they have solved the mystery of the Black Knight – some even going as far as claiming the whole subject was/is nothing more than a hoax.
But the truth of the matter is that nobody really knows the answer to this strange space mystery.
