Article from: 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.

Chillingly, he claimed our technology is "not nearly as sophisticated" as theirs and "had they been hostile", he warned "we would be 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 following 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."

I see no reason to disbelieve him unless the article was bogus. What does he have to gain by lying?

Wouldn't that be amazing.

To find out we are really not alone.

I think it might make the world a better place.

When you consider the number of galaxies in the universe (at least 100's of billions) and each having 100's of billions of stars, and each star probably having at least some planets orbiting around it, and the general abundance of organic matter in the universe, it's just about impossible that we are alone. Still one day if and when it's confirmed we're not alone it will be as exciting as it will be chilling. Think about how much technological progress we've made in just 100 years. Now imagine there's an alien civilization somewhere that could be millions of years ahead of us in technology.

I'd like to point out that I agree with you 100% on this!

I would love to see the day that we make contact with any E.T. life. even if its goo on mars, or something like that. I think there is more out there then we think.

I wouldn't be surprised if they do have a concept of a creator. when looking at the complexity of the universe it is only natural to think of a creator. if you believe in one or not that is another discussion, but it wouldn't surprise me if a totally alien intelligents would have that concept.

I agree that there is life out there, although whether it can travel, I don't know. And, even if it can, who says it has any idea that we exist? Heck, we just discovered a tribe in the amazon a few months ago that has never seen the outside world!

Personally, I would prefer that we didn't get involved with any other life forms, just because the odds of it being "amazing for our society" in every possible way are pretty slim. Although, I am not a fan of big changes, so it could just be me

I actually wonder if skeptical people would believe it even if the aliens landed and shook hands with them. There are many many "explanations" that can be thought up.

I personally know several people who had very close UFO sightings that simply could not have been conventional craft or any of the "explanations" that people use to debunk UFO sightings.

I am talking about --

1) seeing in vivid detail several very visible craft perform all sorts of maneuvers at incredible speeds over a long period of time.

2) clearly seeing a craft from directly below, hovering silently above at a low altitude, seeing lights and details on the bottom of the craft

Well, could they be experimental govt air craft? Maybe, but if that is the case, then judging by what these craft were able to do, we already have the ability to travel in and out of space to great distances at will and we just aren't being told about it.

Which unlikely scenario is more likely? You chose!

I've never seen one personally, but the two people I am describing saw these things very clearly and would not lie to me.

To me though, the concept of a creator is very unsatisfying because I ask "Who created the creator?". I prefer to think of the universe itself as eternal and the Big Bang just as the beginning of another stage that led to the current universe as we know it. I'm sure if there's an alien civilization out there that's older and more advanced than we are they know a lot more on this topic than we do. Maybe there's something like a universal God/CEO and each galaxy has its own regional God/manager and each solar system has its own manager and so on, kind of like a franchise. But I doubt it.
