VFTB 290: Black Knight Decoded (and Debunked)

The space blanket photographed during STS-88.

PEPSI RECENTLY released a slick six-minute film that features an object that’s become something of a legend in UFO circles, the Black Knight. Apparently, it’s been orbiting the Earth for 13,000 years, beaming a signal to the surface that was detected by Tesla in 1899, and only now, thanks to modern computing technology, we’ve finally decoded the secret message.

It’s a crummy commercial.

Frank Johnson of AncientAliensDebunked.com joins us to discuss the Black Knight, UFO lore, and why a major corporation would spend a boatload of money to promote the meme that we’re not alone in the universe.
