UFO Advocates Cite NASA Video of ‘Tether Incident’, Say Aliens Visible [Watch Video]

  The 'Tether Incident' Yes, we know – this looks like a black-and-white ring toss game, but what is actually pictured is a tether (the stick-like object) protruding from the back end of a NASA shuttle and an unidentified object floating in its radius. The "tether incident" happened in 1996, but a new high-def look at it by UFO believers is giving alien conspiracy theorists new ammunition.(Courtesy: Chron.com)

UFO enthusiasts and supporters have one more incident to insist that aliens do exist and now armed with NASA video of the so-called “Tether Incident” say the mishap occurred in the space due to aliens.

The “tether incident” actually occurred on February 25, 1996, on the fourth day of a 15-day NASA-Italian mission that went wrong in space while deploying a satellite with tether or a cable measuring 12 miles long and meant to conduct electricity.

NASA video showed the satellite gently lifted and had been extended by 11 km from the cargo bay in Columbia and engineers began to reel out the tether to move the satellite further but around 7:30 pm things began to go astray for some unknown reasons. All of a sudden the tether broke and the satellite was lost as it floated away.

YouTube video on the “tether incident” remained a source of enthusiasm and mystery for UFO believers and space watchers. On September 12, Stargazer Nation released a high-definition version of the original NASA footage that further showed UFOs coming towards the tether. In fact, the video clearly shows the tether like stick but surrounded by bright dots, which they claim are aliens.

Watch the Stargazer Nation’s Video:

Supporting the version further, Franklin Chang-Diaz, an astronaut, said the objects near the tether were little bits of debris, probably illuminated by the sun and he admitted that the debris flew with them thgoughout.

UFO or alien believers say the video not only shows UFOs but also confirms the existence of aliens, Examiner.com said. UFO advocates now say the NASA is covering up the incident citing mere power cable issues which need new sources of power to deploy satellites.

John Tindall of the History Channel said the photo lens of the camera, which has a circular mirror with a hole in its centre, which might have resulted in the dots that appeared in the video.

While NASA denies aliens exist, it has elaborately described about the failed mission saying: “The world watched as the satellite smoothly and gently lifted from its cradle atop the latticework boom that previously had been extended some 40 feet (11.3 meters) out of Columbia’s cargo bay. The crew continues carefully unreeling the satellite on its slender tether,” NASA said on the “Tether Incident on day 4 of the mission but believers still insist that they do. And the debate goes on.
