In conspiracy news, NASA has been accused of purposefully shutting down the International Space Station's live-feed just moments after an unidentified flying object was spotted entering earth's atmosphere. Was it a meteor? An alien spaceship? Is Area 51 where we run tests on aliens, or where the aliens run tests on us? Dum dum dum!
The incident occurred on July 9 and was first reported by prolific UFO hunter Streetcap1 in a video uploaded the same day.
The enthusiast did not directly imply that the object was an alien spacecraft saying: "This could well be a meteor or the like.
But he implied that the camera being turned off was slightly sinister: "What made it interesting was that the camera cut off when the UFO seemed to stop."
A NASA spokesperson made a statement earlier in April denying allegations that NASA technicians deliberately shut down transmission when UFOs appear on the live video.
According to the spokesperson, NASA never intentionally shuts down live transmission to hide UFOs. Loss of video is usually due to loss of signals from the ISS.
Admittedly, that is an awfully convenient time for the live-feed to go down. How often does that happen? Is it frequent? What are the odds of the feed going down right when something interesting is happening? Did NASA also fake the moon landing? Of course they did. I'm not saying we've never been, I'm just saying we didn't go when we say we did. Kind of like how I changed the dates I went to college on job applications so interviewers think I'm older and wiser. "It says here you went to school in 1480." Yes sir, studied under Da Vinci. Even posed nude for him a couple times but he destroyed the paintings because he could never get my penis right. I guess he was just so used to painting all those sad, little wieners. So -- let's talk benefits.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Brian A, who tried to tell me that UFO was actually one of his balls. Dammit Brian, what the hell were your nuts doing in space and where's the other one because it better not crack my windshield when I'm blasting off for the sun.
