Edgar Mitchell was the Lunar Module Pilot for Apollo 14


Aliens have contacted humans several times but governments have hidden the truth for 60 years, the sixth man to walk on the moon has claimed.

Apollo 14 astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell, said he was aware of many UFO visits to Earth during his career with NASA but each one was covered up. 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.

UFO theorists believe Roswell in New Mexico was the site of an alien crash in 1947.
 

'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 organizations are moving in that direction.'

Mr. Margerrison said:

"I thought I'd stumbled on some sort of astronaut humor 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."

 


 

 


Apollo Astronaut Says Gov. Is Covering Up UFOs
Edgar Mitchell Claims Government Conspiracy

LAKE WORTH, Fla.

-- Edgar Mitchell's suburban Lake Worth home is a small shrine to the nine hours and 17 minutes he spent walking on the moon. Because of his experience, Mitchell's recent comments about unidentified flying objects and aliens are getting a lot of attention.

"It's incredible to think that we might be the only intelligent, living system in the universe. That's not credible anymore," he told WPBF News 25 Friday.

The Apollo 14 veteran said that he believes the U.S. government has been covering-up the truth for more than 50 years.

"Military pilots, airline pilots, mostly, from all over the world, for 50 years, have reported these things, but they've quit because they're told to shut up and not talk about it by military and intelligence people," Mitchell said.

The 77-year-old said the deception began after the alleged alien landing in Roswell, N.M., in 1947.

Ever since, Mitchell claims, the government has been keeping proof of alien life -- and alien visits -- under wraps.

"Unfortunately, you the press show no interest whatsoever. The giggle factor has been too high. But the science behind it and the research behind it, among the people I know, is accepted. It's real," Mitchell told WPBF.

The issue gained steam earlier this week when Mitchell told a British radio interviewer that he knows that the government knows about life in outer space.

"I've been saying the same damn words for 10 years, almost verbatim, and all of a sudden, here I'm global news," he said.

Mitchell first made global news on Feb. 9, 1971, when his lunar mission earned him a place in the record book for longest moonwalk -- an unbelievable feat that he said could be topped by an alien encounter.

"It would be pretty darn exciting. I have been hoping for that type of experience since I got involved in this," he said.

Mitchell told WPBF that he does not know why the government would be covering up the existence of intelligent life.

He said the believes that John F. Kennedy was the last U.S. president to be briefed on UFOs.

Margerrison: DO YOU BELIEVE IN LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS?

Edgar Mitchell: Oh, yes. There is not much question at all, but there is life throughout the universe. Weíre not alone in the universe at all.

Margerrison: YOUíRE CONVINCED WEíRE NOT ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE?

Mitchell: Oh, I know for sure weíre not alone in the universe. Now, have we been able to identify for sure where the other (inhabited) planets are? No, we havenít, certainly not in our solar system. But they have identified quite a number of planets now that very likely could be life-bearing planets.

I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real, although it has been covered up by our governments for quite a long time.

Margerrison: WHOA! WELL, HANG ON A MINUTE. THIS IS BIG. ALL THIS IS QUITE A SHOCK TO ME.

Mitchell: Well, Iím sorry you havenít been reading the papers recently. Itís starting to open up quite a bit.

Margerrison: SO, YOUíRE TELLING ME Ė THEREíS A LOT OF INFORMATION HERE TO TAKE ON BOARD. HANG ON A MINUTE. LISTEN, IíVE HEARD CRAZY UFO NUTS TELL ME THIS KIND OF THING BEFORE. IíVE NEVER HAD DR. ED MITCHELL, THE SIXTH MAN TO WALK ON THE MOON, A RESPECTED SCIENTIST IN HIS OWN RIGHT, ANNOUNCE TO ME THAT WEíVE BEEN VISITED BY ALIENS FROM OTHER PLANETS AND THAT THEY DEFINITELY ARE OUT THERE. THERE IS NO DEBATING IT.

Mitchell: Well, this is the first time youíve ever talked to me, or I would have told you about it before.

Margerrison: (laughs) SO YOU BELIEVE THE WHOLE DEAL?

Mitchell: Thereís more nonsense out there about this than there is real knowledge, but it is a real phenomenon and there are a few of us (who know). Itís been covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so. But slowly itís leaked out and some of us are privileged to have been briefed on some of it. I happen to have grown up in Roswell, New Mexico, where presumably the Roswell incident of 1947 took place and Iím quite knowledgeable about it there since I grew up there. But Iíve also been in military circles and intelligence circles that know below the surface of what has been public knowledge that, yes, we have been visited.

Margerrison: AND YOUíRE SERIOUS? YOUíRE NOT GOING TO GO, ĎI WAS JUST PULLING YOUR LEG ABOUT THAT?í THAT ITíS NOT TRUE? IíM WONDERING IF IíVE STUMBLED UPON ASTRONAUT HUMOR AND IN A COUPLE OF MINUTES YOUíRE GOING TO GO, ĎI WAS ONLY PULLING YOUR LEGí?

Mitchell: No, I wonít do that.

Margerrison: WOW! SO YOUíVE BEEN BRIEFED ON THE FACT THAT WEíVE BEEN VISITED?

Mitchell: Well, briefed is one word for it. I have been involved in much of this work Ė itís not my main work. Itís not my main interest. But Iíve been deeply involved in certain committees and research programs with very credible scientists and various intelligence people that do know the real inside story and I am not hesitant to talk about it.

Margerrison: WHAT IS THE REAL INSIDE STORY?

Mitchell: Thatís what Iím telling you: we have been visited.

Margerrison: IS IT REGULAR CONTACT? OR ONE CRASH? OR?

Mitchell: Well, no, there is quite a bit of contact going on. I canít tell you because I donít know all the extent of it, not all of the inside details because that is not my really main interest.

But the fact that we have been visited, that the (July 1947) Roswell crash is real and a number of other contacts have been real and ongoing is pretty well known to those of us who have been briefed and been close to the subject matter.

Margerrison: SO, WHY IS IT BEING COVERED UP THEN? WHY IS IT NOT MAINSTREAM?

Mitchell: The reason for that goes back to when the main instances started taking place after World War II when in the United States at least Ė I canít speak for the European governments or South American governments. All of them recently have started opening their files. This has started to open up and the internet, or look at some of the international press, youíll start to get the stories that are coming out now.

Margerrison: BUT IíVE HAD PEOPLE ON THE SHOW TELLING ME THAT GOVERNMENTS ARE MOUNTING TOWARDS DISCLOSURE, TOWARDS SAYING THIS IS THE CASE. DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE THE CASE THAT THERE WILL BE AN ACTUAL DISCLOSURE ON THIS MAYBE THIS YEAR. THAT THE GOVERNMENTS Ö

Mitchell: I donít know whether it will be this year in the United States, but certainly weíve already had it in the last few years from the Belgium government, from the French government, from the Brazilian government, the Mexican government Ė theyíve opened their (UFO) files and admitted they had the files.

Margerrison: OK, LET ME GET MY HEAD TOGETHER. LISTEN, HEREíS WHAT I KNOW. IíVE HAD PEOPLE ON THE SHOW TALKING ABOUT THE FACT THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS SAID THAT BELIEF IN LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS DOES NOT COMPROMISE YOUR CATHOLICISM.

Mitchell: Of course, that just happened recently in association, I believe, with a major release from the British government of some of the British files. They were not your deepest files, but they were some files released.

Margerrison: WHATíS HAPPENING OVER THE NEXT FOUR YEARS ĖALL OF THE UFO FILES HERE IN THE U. K. ARE BEING RELEASED. DO YOU THINK ITíS THE CASE THAT WE ARE RAMPING UP TO MAYBE THE U. K. ADMITTING?

Mitchell: I canít say how fast itís going to happen, but certainly the public awareness of it is increasing, the public acceptance is increasing. The amount of misinformation, covert and actual attempts to cover up seem to be decreasing. I think weíre headed for real disclosure by some serious organizations moving in that direction.

Margerrison: YOUíVE HAD A LONG TIME TO THINK ABOUT THIS. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE IMPACT WILL BE ON THE WORLD WHEN IT IS FINALLY MAINSTREAM NEWS THAT THERE ARE ALIEN BEINGS FROM OUTSIDE THIS PLANET?

Mitchell: Well, I think at this point, itís probably a whole bunch of ĎWhatís new?í I think that certainly in the United States that well over 70% of the people now accept this as fact. While they do not know all the correct story, they do know there has been Ė or accept the fact Ė that there has been visitation and see UFOs in the skies all the time that are very likely alien craft. Now, not all of them (aerial craft) are. I suspect that some of them are homegrown. I suspect that in the past sixty years or so that there has been some back-engineering (of E. T. technologies) and the creation of this type of equipment. But itís not nearly as sophisticated yet as what the visitors have.

Margerrison: SO, AS PART OF YOUR KNOWING ABOUT ALL THIS AND ALSO GOING PUBLIC WITH IT, DO YOU WORRY ABOUT YOUR SAFETY WITH THIS KIND OF STUFF? OR Ö

Mitchell: Oh, I think those days are gone. That used to be a concern among the people on the inside. But I donít think they are knocking anybody off (for talking) any more or doing drastic things to them.

Margerrison: WHAT DO YOU THINK THE INTENT OF THE ALIENS IS? IS IT HOSTILE OR PEACEFUL?

Mitchell: Not at all, itís not hostile. Itís pretty obvious that if it were hostile, we would have been gone by now.

Margerrison: (laughs) REALLY?!

Mitchell: We could have been (gone by now).

Margerrison: WOW!

Mitchell: We would have no defense if thatís what their real intent was.

Margerrison: ARE WE TALKING Ė WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE?

Mitchell: Youíve seen some of the pictures. The pictures that I know of, some of them are these little people that look strange to us. As far as I know from my (professional) contacts that have had contact, thatís pretty accurate.

Margerrison: DO YOU THINK OTHER PEOPLE WHO WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOON LANDINGS KNOW ABOUT THIS?

Mitchell: Some of them do. But again, like other people, if you are interested enough to dig into it and want to know about it, you can know about it.

(Cell phone musical sound)

Margerrison: LISTEN, I KNOW YOU ARE A BUSY GUY AND I HEAR YOUR PHONE.

Mitchell: Yes, people donít leave me alone. The phone is ringing all the time and Iím here by myself.

Margerrison: THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CONVERSATIONS OF MY LIFE Ė UNBELIEVABLE! I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.Ē

Mitchell: You bet.

Margerrison: AND DR. ED MITCHELL, LISTEN Ė YOUíRE A FRIEND OF THE SHOW, IF YOU WANT TO ACCEPT THAT FRIENDSHIP, AND WOW! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE CONVERSATION. THANKS FOR JOINING US.

Mitchell: Iím glad you enjoyed it.Ē
