Mystery Ship May Track U.S. Titan Rocket

Mystery Ship Question Mark

The Globe and Mail

     Portland, Me. — A mysterious ship that has been cloaked in secrecy since it docked in Portland's harbour three weeks ago may carry equipment used to observe a U.S. Air Force rocket on a top-secret mission, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

     The rocket's flight path would take it over the ocean on a trajectory roughly parallel to the U.S. and Canadian East Coasts, the Portland Press Herald reported. The air force could launch the rocket from Cape Canaveral, Fla., as early as Friday.

     The Sage has been tied up at Portland for about three weeks, and people on the waterfront have been speculating about the nature of its mission. Some believe it is has been deployed to track the Space Shuttle Discovery.

     The ship's captain is not talking, and neither are the air force, NASA or Lockheed Martin, a defence contractor that apparently leased the vessel.
