Default Iridium Sat - NASA Conspiracy Theory

Hardhat off, tinfoil hat back on!

The debris that entered the Earth's atmosphere was NOT from the colliding sats as the US Strategic Command said. It was debris from an "unrelated incident" many years ago. Makes sense if we consider NASA said it will take about 10,000 years for the Iridium debris to make its way to Earth's atmosphere.

Double coated tinfoil hat on!

The NASA conspiracy theorist is saying the Iridium debris is causing a HUGE collision problem for ALL THINGS in orbit. PREDICTION: between now and this coming MAY, NASA will announce both the space station and the Hubble telescope will not survive the Iridium debris field and both will need to be replaced by something else.

Hey, not my prediction -- the NASA conspiracy theorist's prediction.

It's bad enough that NASA has to track known objects and their orbits, but now the collision and subsequent collisions will produce debris orbits that they simply don't know or can't calculate. Launch windows apparently are greatly influenced by "windows of opportunity" where they know there is little chance of colliding with something else in orbit.

I was surprised to read stuff in orbit cannot be tracked on radar like a plane flying in the atmosphere. Stuff in space is going to fast. They know where debris is, the approximate direction of travel, and estimate of how fast it is going, then take their best guess at where it is at any given time. But they don't know for sure.

One of the astronauts from the space station was interviewed, said while he was there they were ordered into the escape pod because a piece of debris would be coming past, close. He said they were watching out the window for it, a very large chunk of debris, and never saw it pass. But it did. He said it was 10-kilometers behind the space station, in the time it takes to say "one alligator" it is now 10-kilometers ahead of the space station. It's moving to fast to see.
