[quote:Anonymous Coward 42575720:MV8yMjY4MDYwXzM4NzUzMjI1X0U0RTJFMTM3] The first nuclear-propelled manmade object in space possibly occurred during the Pascal-B nuclear test. A 2,000 pound steel plate cap was blasted off the top of a nuclear test shaft at a speed of more than 41 miles per second. Dr. Brownlee, one of the test engineers, calculated that the nuclear explosion, combined with the specific design of the shaft, would accelerate the plate to six times escape velocity. The use of a subterranean shaft and nuclear device to propel an object to escape velocity has since been termed a "thunder well". Steel plates became successively larger and heavier. The Dark Knight is a 20 ton plate. [/quote]
This is old stuff from the 50s, but it seems it remains still as a modern enigma...
If the historic rumor is true, we are talking about a secret (and pioneer) space power, or an "alien" surveillance, or an "alien" probe, or VALIS or about what?
Sceptics claim this is simply some astronautical debris, but yet nobody has identified it...
