Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-80 took a crew of five
astronauts into a 17 day, 15 hour and 54 minute mission around the
earth, the longest flight in the
STS-80 Lift off
from Pad 39B.
history of this vehicle.
lengthy flight a very strange event occurred that even had crewman
Dr. Story Musgrave unable to explain what he observed from
the shuttle windows.
A large disc shaped object appeared below the Columbia. The shuttle
was approximately, 190 Nautical miles high.
The disc was first observed to miraculously appear from out of
nowhere, flying through the clouds below and progressing from
right to left as the astronauts stared in utter amazement.
The outer rim of the craft appeared to
be rotating counter-clockwise. It was very large (compared to common
space junk and breakaway ice), approximately 50 to 150 feet in
Astronaut Dr. Story Musgrave, a Payload Specialist on
the STS-80 Mission, was interviewed following the flight.
As he viewed a videotape of the incident
which showed lightning flashes in the atmosphere, the city lights of
Denver, Colorado and other earthbound sights, he stated:
"I don't know what it is. Whether
it's a washer, debris, ice particles, I don't know. But it's
characteristic of the thousands of things which I've seen. What
is not so characteristic is it appears to come from no where.
You would think that if it's facing the dark side or facing a
side towards you which is not reflecting the sun, you would
think that you would see something there. It's really
During an earlier interview, Dr.
Musgrave stated he attempted to communicate with ET life forms
during each of his six missions.
He actually asked them to take him
with them. Now that's an astronaut with a lot of courage. Dr.
Musgrave retired after this flight from NASA.
Since then he's been spreading his
considered opinion that alien life exists. When Musgrave
speaks of this, it's no great leap for one to assume he's admitting
knowledge of alien life.
As the final slide of a "Grey" ET was
shown during a recent astronomy presentation by Dr. Musgrave,
he made this surprising comment:
"These guys are real... I guarantee
it!" Dr. Musgrave does know the truth.
This author guarantees it!
Consider that carefully. These are world renown scientists making
statements almost beyond belief. Dr. von Braun and others of
his stature have the courage to disclose "sensitive" information,
but obviously the leaders of the USA and the world do not. If
billions could find a way of coping with the overwhelming threat of
atomic annihilation for half a century, it is reasonable to assume
we can cope with the knowledge of these "Other Intelligence's" from
the stars. We can cope with the fact they are visiting earth, and
have been since the beginning of history. We must.
Those still asleep must open their eyes.
We Are Not Alone.
