NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell claims alien contact cover-up

The Daily Telegraph

FORMER NASA astronaut and moon-walker Dr Edgar Mitchell – a veteran of the Apollo 14 mission – has stunningly claimed aliens exist.

And he says extra-terrestrials have visited Earth on several occasions – but the alien contact has been repeatedly covered up by governments for six decades.

Dr Mitchell, 77, said during a radio interview that sources at the space agency who had had contact with aliens described the beings as ‘little people who look strange to us.’

He said supposedly real-life ET’s were similar to the traditional image of a small frame, large eyes and head.

He claimed our technology is “not nearly as sophisticated” as theirs and “had they been hostile”, he warned “we would have been gone by now”.

Dr Mitchell, along with with Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard, holds the record for the longest ever moon walk, at nine hours and 17 minutes during their 1971 mission.

“I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real,” Dr Mitchell said.

“It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it’s leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it.

“I’ve been in military and intelligence circles, who know that beneath the surface of what has been public knowledge, yes – we have been visited. Reading the papers recently, it’s been happening quite a bit.”

Dr Mitchell, who has a Bachelor of Science degree in aeronautical engineering and a Doctor of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics claimed Roswell was real and similar alien visits continue to be investigated.

He told the astonished Kerrang! radio host Nick Margerrison: “This is really starting to open up. I think we’re headed for real disclosure and some serious organisations are moving in that direction.”

Mr Margerrison said: “I thought I’d stumbled on some sort of astronaut humour but he was absolutely serious that aliens are definitely out there and there’s no debating it.”

Officials from NASA, however, were quick to play the comments down.

In a statement, a spokesman said: “NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe.

‘Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue.’

  1. Aliens like Ike!

    President Eisenhower had three secret meetings with aliens, former Pentagon consultant claims

    Ex-President met with extra-terrestrials on three separate occasions at New Mexico air base
    Eisenhower and FBI officials organised the meetings by sending out ‘telepathic messages’

    Former American President Dwight D. Eisenhower had three secret meetings with aliens, a former US government consultant has claimed.

    The 34th President of the United States met the extra terrestrials at a remote air base in New Mexico in 1954, according to lecturer and author Timothy Good.

    Eisenhower and other FBI officials are said to have organised the showdown with the space creatures by sending out ‘telepathic messages’.

    The two parties finally met up on three separate occasions at the Holloman Air Force base and there were ‘many witnesses’.

    Conspiracy theorists have circulated increased rumours in recent months that the meeting between the Commander-in-Chief and people from another planet took place.

    But the claims from Mr Good, a former U.S. Congress and Pentagon consultant, are the first to be made publicly by a prominent academic.

    Speaking on Frank Skinner’s BBC2 current affairs show Opinionated, he said that governments around the world have been in regular contact with aliens for many decades.

    ‘Aliens have made both formal and informal contact with thousands of people throughout the world from all walks of life,’ he added.

    The initial meeting is supposed to have taken place with aliens who were ‘Nordic’ in appearance, but the agreement was eventually ‘signed’ with a race called ‘Alien Greys’.

    Mr Good added: ‘We know that up to 90 per cent of all UFO reports can be explained in conventional terms. However, I would say millions of people worldwide have actually seen the real thing.’

    According to classified documents released by the Ministry of Defence in 2010, Winston Churchill may have ordered a UFO sighting to be kept secret.

    The UFO was seen over the East Coast of England by an RAF reconnaissance plane returning from a mission in France or Germany towards the end of the war.

    Churchill is said to have discussed how to deal with UFO sightings with Eisenhower.

  2. they keep putting U.F.O. stories out as “bait” for “conspiracy theorists”.
    This is the classic cover-up technique used by the government to smear anyone looking into what they are doing as “conspiracy theorists”, a buzzword used to put a certain “jacket” on people and create confusion around issues they wish to keep shrouded.

    U.F.O. stories are put out by the government agencies[such as NASA] in order to make people researching what the government is really doing look like “kooks” and “conspiracy theorists”. It ensures that no stories about what the government is really doing will ever be taken seriously because they will now be lumped together with the “fringe”. The trigger word “conspiracy theorist” is constantly used to re-enforce this negative stereotype.

  3. @Mike: Yeah, it was interesting how the Eisenhower/alien article combined a reference to the RAF foo fighter sightings towards the end of WWII ( pointing towards advanced technology with a man-made origin) with the “Nordic” and “Grey” alien mythology. I’ve always found the “Nordic” alien story to be the most amusing, if only because it seems so lazy from an alien hoax standpoint (Aryan aliens! heh). And since filling the public’s collective head space with false paradigms and disinformation appears to be a primary goal of the global elite, I also suspect that these types of stories are used for more than just discrediting conspiracy theorists. There’s a massive audience for this kind of stuff, from New Agers to religious fundamentalists that may be open to interpreting UFO’s as angels and demons, etc. Growing that audience has got to be increasingly useful as technology progresses and/or distractions are needed.

  4. I see the connection between Fascism and the alien/U.F.O. Cult as sort of rienforcing the idea of the “master race”.
    It is very close to Darwinism and social Darwinism. The idea being that there is this constant evolutionary struggle going on.
    Ever notice how in these U.F.O. stories, the “aliens” are always presented as somehow more “advanced”. This coincides and rienforces the archetype of the advanced “Aryan”, ruling over the “lesser beings”.

  5. http://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/cia-claims-responsibility-for-ufo-sightings-in-late-1950s-1960s-1.2055124

    The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has tweeted a declassified document that claims responsibility for over one half of all UFO reports made during the late 1950s and 1960s.

    The document, titled The CIA and the U-2 Programme, 1954-1974, was the most read item on the Agency’s ‘Best of 2014 List’ and details flight testing of the Lockheed U-2 aircraft at higher altitudes than would have been normal for planes at the time.

    “High-altitude testing of the U-2 soon led to an unexpected side effect; a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs),” the document says.

    “In the mid-1950s, most commercial airliners flew at altitudes between 10,000 and 20,000 feet and military aircraft like the B-47s and B-57s operated at altitudes below 40,000 feet.

    “Consequently, once U-2s started flying at altitudes above 60,000 feet, air-traffic controllers began receiving increasing numbers of UFO reports.”

    The CIA attributes the sun reflecting the “silver bodies” of the U-2 to the shapes and glints in the sky that were reported by people on the ground and by commercial pilots flying at lower altitudes.

    “At this time, no one believed manned flight was possible above 60,000 feet, so no one expected to see an object so high in the sky,” it says.

    The U-2 Programme was developed by the US government in the 1950s to test the potential of using high-flying aircraft for reconnaissance missions.
