Now, we are used to hearing things that seem pretty crazy being uttered by people who seem equally crazy, but this man definitely does not seem crazy. He seems incredibly humble and wise. He is a retired US Navy Captain and aviator, test pilot, aeronautical engineer and NASA astronaut. He received his doctorate in aeronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1970, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. I don’t believe that your typical crackpot has such an impressive resume as Edgar Mitchell. Though the validity of his claims may be impossible to prove, it is certainly very intriguing.
Edgar Mitchell has made the rather shocking claim that aliens came to Earth to stop a nuclear war between America and Russia. Dr. Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon, said that high-ranking military officials witnessed alien ships during weapons tests throughout the 1940s. The UFOs, he says, were spotted hovering over the world’s first nuclear weapons test which took place on July 16th, 1945 in the desolate White Sands deserts of New Mexico.
The Nasa veteran has regularly spoken about his belief in aliens ever since he landed on the surface of the moon during the Apollo 14 mission in 1971.
“White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons – and that’s what the extra-terrestrials were interested in,” Dr. Mitchell, 84, revealed. “They wanted to know about our military capabilities.”
“My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth.”
Dr. Mitchell says stories from people who manned missile bases during the 20th Century back up his claims. “Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their [test] missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft,” he said.
He previously has said that supposedly real-life ET’s were similar to the traditional image of a small frame, large eyes and head. He has also claimed that our technology is “not nearly as sophisticated” as theirs and “had they been hostile,” he warned “we would be been gone by now.”
UFO believers say it’s no coincidence that aliens showed up very shortly after we’d developed atomic weapons and rocket technology, as this is when they were alerted to the threat we pose to the wider cosmos.
Dr. Mitchell, also says the Roswell cover up was real. “This is really starting to open up,” he told a radio show several years ago. “I think we’re headed for real disclosure and some serious organizations are moving in that direction.”
Officials from NASA were quick to play the comments down. In a statement at the time, 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.”
Dr. Mitchell said earlier this year, “I’ve also talked to Air Force personnel, and during the Cold War with the Soviet Union, we had missile silos stationed along our northern border with missiles aimed at the Soviet Union, and I talked with Air Force personnel who … informed me they quite often had UFOs hovering over their silos that were disabling our missiles. All of that tells me that our alien visitors have been doing their darnedest to cut down on our warlike behaviors.”
While certain things may be hard to believe, Dr. Mitchell said we should all keep an open mind to those things we don’t understand.
“There’s no question if you know a little bit about cosmology and going back to the question of who are we, how did we get here, and what’s this really about, we know from our astrophysicists and cosmologists … our universe is virtually infinite and expands,” he said. “We don’t know the end of it, and we know there has to be life throughout that universe. We’re just one grain of sand on a huge beach, and we know from all the galaxies and galactic clusters out there that we’re a small, tiny portion of all of that. That’s something we’ve only recently come to grips with.”
Regardless of what the truth is in this case, Dr. Mitchell seems to be a very benevolent and thoughtful man.
“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch’.” ” —Edgar Mitchell describing his experience of seeing the Earth from the Moon during the Apollo 14 mission.
