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.’

    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.
