STS 82 ....the mystery deepens
- Back in February 1997 a strange conversation took place between STS82
shuttle crew members.
You will find many references to the incident on the internet , including
sound files , purportedly recalling the actual event.
All of those sound bites come from one source , the video I recorded on that
The only sound and video files released by me were carefully edited so that
I could track them back to my master recording...so it is easy to identify
Now , more than seven years later , a further investigation has been carried
out by a respected researcher who had access to NASA Files and archives.
The intention was to try and find NASA's own version of the recording , and
perhaps solve the mystery once and for all.
However , our hopes were dashed , when we found that there are no records on
file covering the short period around 0630 gmt that morning.There are gaps
in all recordings , and no NASA TV archive footage available.
As a result , it would seem that my video , recorded live from a satellite
news transmission into Europe , is the only copy in existance.
All possinble explanations have been considered , but nothing can explain
what was said by the crew members or the way in which they said it.
I would now like to place a copy of the full , unedited video , running time
12 minutes ,and total size about 2.5mb , on an appropriate web site , for
all to see. This will be the first time it has been released in full
un-edited format .
Please contact me direct if you would like to host the video.
