NASA launched the STS-106 spacecraft from the Kennedy Space Centre on September 8, 2000. The object of the mission was to fly Space Shuttle Atlantis to the International Space Station in preparation to permanently man the low-orbit satellite. However, there was one moment that stuck out for conspiracy theorists.
Amazon Prime’s “Secret Space” series revealed how something bizarre happened during the live feed.
Avid sky watcher and presenter Jeff Challender detailed on the 2017 show: “STS-106 was the second-to-last mission to an unmanned space station.
“A single spacewalk was carried out by cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and astronaut Edward Lu.
“The two spacewalkers made the final cable connections between the Zarya module and the brand new service module, named Zvesda.
