In the nineties, distance measurements, stellar models, cosmological measurements improved and the mystery

An Amateur Astronomer Found NASA’s Long Lost IMAGE Satellite?

Back in 2000, NASA launched a satellite, the Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration satellite (called IMAGE) and after 5 years NASA lost contact with the satellite. The satellite’s mission was to study the Earth’s magnetosphere and how it interacts with solar winds. In 2005 NASA inexplicably lost all contact with the satellite and believed it to be dead, until
