PHUKET: Officers from the Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command successfully recovered a metal sphere from the seabed off Phuket today (May 17) that has now been confirmed to be a discarded fuel tank for a rocket, satellite or other object heading for, or already in, orbit.

 

Vice Admiral Cherngchai Chomcherngpat, Commander of the Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command, explained to the press today that local fisherman first spotted the object in the shallows off ‘Koh Ael’ earlier this month.

 

“The Third Regional Operation Center of the Thai Maritime Enforcement Command Center [ThaiMECC3] was informed by local fishermen on May 1 that they found a suspicious object which looked like a bomb near Koh Ael,” he said.

Satellites don't have fuel tanks, its the rockets that bring them in orbit have them.

How do they reposition them without some kind of propellant (AKA fuel)?

Mars has just sent their first spacecraft to Earth. Just wait for the lid to start unscrewing. They intend to take over the Thai Government and look for signs of intelligence. Their attempt is doomed to failure.

 

According to H G Wells wasn't that on the 12th of August? It's a bit early.

So that's what the Russian Covid vaccine looks like.  I think I'll give it a miss.

It's Sputnik V so it's much better now.

He clearly wasn't as clever as he thought and forgot to account for the fact the last bit is downhill.

Wouldn't it be ironic if aliens did attack Earth right now and were all wiped out by Covid?
