Sometimes the introduction of a news report will stop you in your tracks, forcing you to reread in fear you didn’t quite grasp its point the first time.

And with that, the conspiracy surrounding the so-called “Black Knight” satellite appeared to be very much alive.

A lot of the earliest discoveries that have come to be linked to the Black Knight satellite theory relate to radio signals. But a series of images from 1998 emerged that really threw the celestial cat among the pigeons. They were taken during STS-88, which was the first Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

There, for all to see, were images released by NASA that showed a black object hovering above the Earth in low orbit. And it wasn’t long after the images were thrust in front of a hopeful public before people were performing some conspiratorial sums and sharing them with the wider world.

Much of this has been placed on the record. Former NASA space engineer James Oberg, who personally knows Ross and the person who took the photos, Sergei Krikalev, has gone to great lengths to show that these supposed images of the Black Knight have less fanciful origins.

Given Oberg’s debunking you’d think the matter would have drawn to a close. But no. Since the images were shared far and wide, conspiracy theories have continued.

“They are probably some of the weirdest-looking 70 mm photos to ever come out of the space shuttle program,” Oberg said. “And apparently a NASA website update made the original links inoperative, sparking concerns over a cover-up. All normal journalistic practices — determining the timeline, asking witnesses, searching for the wider context — were skipped.”

By absorbing the images into a growing body of “evidence,” they were seen as definite proof that the Black Knight alien satellite really was out there. Reaching that conclusion, however, has required greats leaps of faith, and has also needed past discoveries to be forced into the overall story.

So what happened in 1899? That year Nikola Tesla began to record some very odd signals, seemingly from outer space. The accomplished Serbian-American electrical engineer had a passion for wireless technology, and he was in the early throes of an experimental wireless transmission station called Wardenclyffe Tower in Shoreham, New York.

“The very first source of non-terrestrial radio waves was discovered in the 1930s, and that was from the centre of our galaxy, which is the most powerful radio source in the sky at many frequencies,” NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory scientist Varoujan Gorjian explained.

The fact that we don’t have a confirmed explanation of their cause, however, has been seized upon: In 1973, Duncan Lunan wrote an article in Spaceflight magazine suggesting those studying long delayed echoes had overlooked the possibility they were sent by an alien space probe.

“If a probe was monitoring Earth, rather than trying to attract attention, perhaps it belatedly discovered from the 1973 to 1974 publicity that it had given away its presence in the 1920s and pulled out in 1975,” Lunan said. “That’s the only explanation I can see for its apparent departure.”

And yet, for all of that, Lunan said his research has nothing to do with the “Black Knight nonsense.” If there is a link between his theory and the Black Knight, it is not one that is being made by him.
