Former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell asserted again yesterday at the National Press Club that the US and other governments are concealing the fact that extraterrestrial life exists.
Mitchell, of course, has long contended there is life on other planets and that earth has been visited. As part of the Apollo 14 mission, he was the sixth man to walk on the moon.
Asked if we’re alone in the universe, Mitchell told CNN, “No, we’re not alone.”
"Our destiny, in my opinion, and we might as well get started with it, is to become a part of the planetary community,” Mitchell said. “We should be ready to reach out beyond our planet and beyond our solar system to find out what is really going on out there."
According to today’s CNN article:
Mitchell grew up in Roswell, New Mexico, which some UFO believers maintain was the site of a UFO crash in 1947. He said residents of his hometown "had been hushed and told not to talk about their experience by military authorities." They had been warned of "dire consequences" if they did so."I urge those who are doubtful to read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on. Because there really is no doubt we are being visited," Mitchell said yesterday. "The universe that we live in is much more wondrous, exciting, complex and far-reaching than we were ever able to know up to this point in time."
But, he claimed, they "didn't want to go to the grave with their story. They wanted to tell somebody reliable. And being a local boy and having been to the moon, they considered me reliable enough to whisper in my ear their particular story."
Roughly 10 years ago, Mitchell claimed, he was finally given an appointment at the Pentagon to discuss what he had been told. An unnamed admiral working for the Joint Chiefs of Staff promised to uncover the truth behind the Roswell story, Mitchell said. The stories of a UFO crash "were confirmed," but the admiral was then denied access when he "tried to get into the inner workings of that process."
The same admiral, Mitchell claimed, now denies the story.
