NASA, Astronauts and UFOs

Press Release -For immediate release - 23/07/2008


"Yes - we have been visited by aliens" claims Apollo 14 astronaut


An astronaut stunned radio listeners last night by claiming that 'aliens exist and our governments know about it'.


Dr. Edgar Mitchell - the sixth man to walk on the moon - told Kerrang! Radio that he has been 'briefed' on UFO phenomenon and that we are not alone in the Universe, but governments have covered it up for the past 60 years.


Dr Mitchell, a respected scientist, described as a "great American" by NASA said 'I've been very privileged to be in on the fact that we have been visited on  this planet and that UFO phenomenon is real, although its been covered up by governments for quite a long time.'


The aliens were described as 'little people who look strange to us.'


Mitchell, 77, continued 'I've also been in military circles and intelligence circles that know beneath what has been public knowledge that - yes we have been visited. I think we're headed for real disclosure and some serious organisations are moving in that direction.'


Reacting to the comments made by Dr. Mitchell, UFO expert Nick Pope who previously worked for the Ministry of Defence said 'Dr. Mitchell is an absolutely brilliant scientist and all American hero. The sixth man to walk on the moon, he's a graduate in M.I.T with doctorates in Aeronautics and Astronautics. This is as good as it gets, and if he starts talking about this sort of stuff people should sit up and pay attention'.


After stunned radio host Nick Margerrison questioned the intent of the aliens, Dr Mitchell replied 'It's not hostile. It's pretty obvious that if it were hostile we'd have been gone by now'


Nick 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. It was supposed to be an interview about walking on the moon, I'm shocked to say

the least.'


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.'

Nick Margerrison: Do you believe in life on other planets?


Dr Mitchell: Oh yes there's not much question at all but there's

life throughout the universe, we're not alone in the universe at all


N - You're convinced that we're not alone in the Universe?


DM - Oh I know for sure that we're not alone in the Universe. Now

have we been able to identify for sure where the other planets

are? No we have not. Certainly not in our Solar System. But

they've identified quite a number of other planets now that very

likely could be life bearing planets. And I've been very

privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited

on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real although it's been

covered up by governments for quite a long time.


N - Woah. Hang on a minute this is big. Woah all this is quite a

shock to me.


DM - Well I'm sorry have you not been reading the papers

recently, its starting to open up quite a bit.


N - Well this is a lot of information to take on board. I've

heard crazy UFO nuts tell me this kind of thing before, I've

never had Dr Ed Mitchell - the sixth man to walk on the moon - a

respected scientist in his own right announce to me that we've

been visited by aliens from other planets and they're definitely

out there - there's no debating it?


DM - Well you should have talked to me and I would have told you

about it before


N - So you believe the whole deal


DM - There's more nonsense out there about this than real

knowledge - but it is a real phenomenon and there's quite a few

of us - its been well covered up by all of our governments for

the last 60 years or so but slowly its leaked out and some of us

have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it. I happen

to have grown up in Roswell in New Mexico where presumably the

Roswell incident of 1947 took place and I'm quite knowledgeable

about there since I grew up there but I've also been in military

circles and intelligence circles that knows beneath the circles

of what has been public knowledge that - yes we have been visited.


N - Are you been serious? You're not just going to go I was

pulling your leg there it's not true? I was wondering if I had

stumbled upon Astronaut humour and in a couple of minutes you're

going to go I was pulling your leg


DM - No I won't say that.


N - Wow. So you've been briefed on the fact that we've been visited?


DM - Well briefed is one word for it. I have been involved in

much of this work - now its not my main work, its not my main

interest but I have been deeply involved in certain committees

and certain research programmes with very credible scientists and

intelligence people that do know the real inside story and I am

not hesitant to talk about it.


N - What is the real inside story?


DM - Well I've just been telling you, we have been visited


N - So are we in regular contact or was it a one off crash?


DM - There's quite a bit of contact going on. I can't tell you

because I don't know all the inside details because that isn't my

main interest but the fact is that we have been visited, the

Roswell crash was real and a number of other contacts have been

real and ongoing. It's pretty well known to those of us who has

been briefed and been close to the subject matter.


N - So why is it being covered up then? Why is it not mainstream?


DM - The reason for that goes back to the main incidents that

started taking place after World War Two when in the United

States at least  - I can't speak for the European governments or

the South American governments - all of whom have recently

started opening their files and this is starting to open up. Look

at the internet or some of the International press and you start

to get the stories coming out now


N - I've had people on the show telling me the governments are

mounting up towards disclosure towards saying that this is the

case. Do you think there will be an actual disclosure this year?


DM - I don't know whether it will be this year in the United

States. But certainly we've already had it in the last few years

from the Belgian government, the French government, the Brazilian

government, the Mexican government. They've opened their files

and admittedly had the files.


N - Do you think we're ramping up to the UK admitting?


DM - Well I can't say how fast it's going to happen but certainly

the public awareness is increasing, the public acceptance is

increasing. The attempts to cover up seem to be decreasing, I

think we're heading toward real disclosure and there are some

very serious organisations moving in that direction.


N - What do you think the impact will be on the world when it is

finally mainstream news that there are alien beings that live

outside this planet?


DM - Certainly in the United States well over 70% of the people

now accept this as fact. They do not know all the correct story

but they accept the fact that there's visitation. There are UFO's

in the sky all the time which are very likely to be alien craft.

Now not all of them are - I suspect some of them are home-grown.

I suspect that in the last 60 years or so there has been some

back-engineering and the creation of this type of equipment that

is not nearly as sophisticated - yet - as what the apparent

visitors have


N - As part of you knowing about this and also going public with

this, are you worried with your safety?


DM - I think those days are gone. That used to be a concern among

the people on the inside but I don't think they're knocking

anybody off for that anymore, or doing drastic things to them


N - What do you think the intent of the aliens is? Is it hostile

or peaceful?


DM - It's not hostile. It's pretty obvious that if it were

hostile we'd have been gone by now.


N - Really?


DM - We could have been. We had no defence if that's what their

real intent was


N - What do they look like?


DM - You've seen some of the pictures. The pictures that I know

of are little people that look strange to us as far as I know

from my contacts that have had contact - that looks pretty accurate


N - Do you think other people that were involved in the moon

landings know about this?


DM - Some of them do but again it's like other people, If you're

interested enough to dig into it and want to know about it - you

can know about it.


N - This has been easily one of the most significant

conversations of my life, unbelievable. I want to thank you for

joining us, wow what an incredible conversation


DM - I'm glad you enjoyed it.
