Do NOT Run! We Are Your Friends!

Sure you are. We all saw the movie, pal.

NASA Tracks Mystery Object Near Atlantis Shuttle
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – NASA mission controllers are tracking a mystery object hovering between the space shuttle Atlantis and Earth, and traveling at roughly the same speed as the orbiter, agency officials said Tuesday.
“Right now they’re just tying to figure out exactly what it is, how far away it is,” NASA spokesperson Kimberly Harle told “It’s pretty much assessing the whole situation.”
Harle said that at 2:45 a.m. EDT (0645 GMT), just after Atlantis completed a check of its reaction control thrusters, the instrumentation and communications officer at NASA’s shuttle Mission Control room at Johnson Space Center noted an object between the orbiter and Earth, and traveling at about the same speed of the spacecraft.

NASA’s doing the prudent thing.

NASA Postpones Shuttle Landing Due to Mystery Object, Weather
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – NASA will postpone the planned Wednesday landing of the space shuttle Atlantis and its six-astronaut crew to further assess a mystery object seen floating between the orbiter and Earth earlier today.

I’m pretty sure I know who it is. And I wish I could say “don’t worry…”

  1. NASA should be minimalized to a skeleton crew and the US could save some money. The last interesting thing NASA did was land on the moon.
