Well, now I really am on the fence about voting trump.

Why aren't we shining lasers at these things? At best, we blind the pilots and we can capture and take their stuff. At worst, they shoot back.

But we'll at least know what we're dealing with then.

Sorry, I'll put my hat back on.  I know the reflection from the bald spot is annoying.

Oh sorry about the fuss, that's just a wrench that floated away when I wasn't paying attention.

what are they referring to as audio chat  ? like it's space how are you going to get anything in a  vacuum.

FFS that webpage caused my phone to lock up from all the JavaScript it was trying to load on my phone. Brits can not develop a web page to save their life.

I believe there is a ton of space junk just floating around earth's orbit.   It's either that or aliens.

Why do these articles list the speed they suspect orbiting objects to be traveling at?  They said it matches the speed of the ISS but still feel like they have to mention it was moving at 27,000 KPH like that's somehow impressive.. yes, that's the orbital speed required to maintain low earth orbit at that elevation.

Don't get me wrong, I get why they do it, they want it to sound sensational, something out of this world (I mean technically it is I suppose), but we have a whole space station that goes 27,000 KPH, so maybe just say it was spotted in orbit and not pretend it's speed was something mystical.

It's just space junk reflecting the sun's light rays.

I really do believe it's because many people don't actually know that.  So it's relevant to point it out.

Of course, on the other hand, anyone reading that article almost certainly has interest in the ISS, and that person would surely know that already.

So, actually, your point is valid.

When the aliens demand to be taken to our leader, do they mean Trump or Putin?

Or any one of the million pieces of space junk.

Is it really an Unidentified FLYING Object if it's in space?

They were expecting some chat between the astronauts and wondering why were there no comments as the UFO came by. Since the video was speed up 4x they would sound like the Chipmunks.

Alien drones are alway orbs. Real live aliens come in saucers with no capability of turning off their running lights.
 
2020-09-20 1:42:58 PM  
I just wanted to point out that the "space drone" sound effect really ads to the drama of the video. That alone makes me believe it is aliens and not just some schmutz on the camera lens.

Not that the Chinese would actually practice orbital interception and monitoring of something like the ISS. No, they would never do that.

There's an exploder button in the control room! We've got to get up there!

if it IS aliens, and they decide to land on Earth, PLEASE GOD let them land someplace sensible like Germany or Japan or South Korea or New Zealand or even France. just not the US. I don't even want to think about what Trump would do if actual aliens landed in the US.
