The sixth man to walk on the surface of the moon has made the astonishing claim that aliens came to Earth to stop a nuclear war between the US and Russia.
The astronaut has been outspoken about his belief in extra terrestrial life ever since he landed on the surface of the moon, becoming one of the most prominent figures in the worldwide UFO community. He told us military insiders had seen unidentified over missile bases and the famous White Sands facility, where the world’s first ever nuclear bomb was detonated in 1945. Mitchell grew up in New Mexico near both the bomb testing zone and Roswell where believers think one of the world’s most famous UFO encounters took place.
“White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons – and that’s what the extraterrestrials were interested in. 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.”
Mitchell also suggested he had heard similar stories from people who manned missile bases during the most tense parts of the 20th century.
“I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War. They told me UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles. Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their [test] missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft.”
Nick Pope was asked, (a former Ministry of Defence UFO researcher) whether he believed Mitchell’s claims. He said; “Edgar Mitchell is an honourable and truthful man, who I’ve had the privilege of meeting, but so far as I’m aware, most of his information on this issue comes not from things he’s experienced himself, but from things he’s been told by others. Clearly, because of who he is, he’s had access to government, military and intelligence community personnel at the highest level, but because – quite understandably – he won’t name his sources, we can’t be certain these people were being straight with him, or indeed that they were privy to any classified information about UFOs.”
