In this most significant interview with Apollo Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell,
one can certainly appreciate Dr. Mitchell's candor and courage in speaking
out about UFO and Star Visitor reality, the government cover-up, and the role of disinformation in keeping this subject under a cloud of ridicule.
His prediction that government documents revealing the reality of Star Visitors contact will be disclosed in 3-4 years was encouraging, and consistent with what I had heard from Dr. Michael Wolf of the National Security Council.

FORMER astronaut Edgar Mitchell is one of only 12 people to have walked
on the moon. A
highly-intelligent scientist, Edgar caused a sensation at a UFO conference in America this month
when he claimed he has seen proof that aliens exist.
In 1971, Edgar became the sixth person to walk on the moon. Now 68,
he works as a consultant
o the hugely popular science-fiction TV series The X Files.
In an exclusive interview from his Florida home, Edgar told JOHN EARLS
why he is convinced
here is life on other planets and that aliens have, in fact, landed on Earth. I AM an American
astronaut and a trained scientist. Because of my position people in high places confide in me. And,
s a result, I have no doubt that aliens HAVE visited this planet. The American government and
governments throughout the world have thousands of files of UFO sightings which cannot be
explained. As a scientist, it is logical to me that at least some of these will have been witness of
alien craft. As a former astronaut, the military people who have access to these files are more
willing to talk to me than to people they regard as mere cranks. The stories I have heard from
these people, who are more highly qualified than me to talk about UFOs, leave me in no doubt
that aliens have already visited Earth.
I've been interested in the subject since I joined NASA 40 years ago.
Probably my most visionary
moment was when I actually landed on the moon with Apollo 14. I felt an overwhelming sense
that the universe itself is in some way whether on Earth or elsewhere, are all part of one giant
So when I learned that aliens really do exist, I wasn't too surprised.
But what did
shock me when I started investigating extra-terrestrial reports a decade ago is the extent to which
the proof has been hushed up. It isn't just the US government which has kept quiet about alien
visits. It would be arrogant of an American like myself to assume that ETs would only choose to
visit my country. Indeed, I've heard convincing stories about governments all over the world that
know of alien visits - including the British government.
Not all governments are anxious to keep their findings quiet. The Belgians
that aliens may be out there and have released information about sightings that cannot be
explained away as military planes, weather phenomena and so on. There is a very simple reason
why governments have been so secretive: fear.
Modern UFO sightings really began with the Roswell incident in 1947,
when a crashed
craft containing the corpses of several aliens was found in Roswell, New Mexico. Make no
mistake, Roswell happened. I've seen secret files which show the government knew about it - but
decided not to tell the public. There were very good security reasons for not informing the public
about Roswell. Quite simply, we wouldn't have known how to deal with the technology of
intelligent beings advanced enough to send a craft to Earth. The world would have panicked if
we'd known aliens were visiting us.
The question of whether or not aliens are still visiting us is more
complex. Such is our
existing secret technology that what might look like an alien craft may well turn out to be a
top-secret military plane. On the other hand, the craft may be an alien spaceship. Personally
however, I'd say, "Yes, it's quite possible we are currently being visited". The whole question of
extra-terrestrials should be looked at in an historical context. Five hundred years ago, the
astronomer Copernicus was condemned as a heretic for saying that planet Earth wasn't the centre
of the universe but merely a small part of it. Now we laugh at those long-dead fools for not
listening to the truth. People who believe in aliens aren't all cranks and some may be looked upon
in the future as visionaries similar to Copernicus. Meanwhile, the majority of us still believe
mankind is the biological centre of the universe. We will refuse to accept that intelligent life exists
outside Earth unless we personally bump into an alien while we're doing the shopping.
Is this attitude really any different from those "simpletons" of 500 years ago?
My training at NASA only allows me to look at things scientifically.
Even if I hadn't been
shown evidence of alien landings on Earth, the assumption must be that somewhere in the
universe another planet is capable of supporting alien life. Those life-forms need not be "little
green men". The scientists' definition of intelligent life is whether or not it can use and manage
information. Even the most primitive microbes on Earth qualify by that definition, and surely there
are at the very least similar microbes thriving on planets throughout the universe.
If you are starting to think walking on the moon addled my brain and
that I'll believe any
old crank theory about ETs, think again. I would describe myself as a cynic. I wasn't convinced
about the existence of aliens until I started talking to the military old-timers who were there at the
time of Roswell. The more government documentation on aliens I was told about, the more
convinced I became. It must be stressed that the wackier people on the fringe of alien matters do
the subject no end of damage.
Contrary to rumour, there are no alien buildings and structures on the
moon. I should
know, I was there! I even became caught up in these rumours when a theory started that a moon
structure was reflected on my helmet during TV transmissions of my landing. That just isn't true.
It's that kind of disinformation which stops credible people admitting that they too believe in
Thankfully, things are changing for the better. It's a snowball effect
- the more scientists
admit that ETs are a viable prospect, the more they are investigated in a scientific manner. And
the more that happens, the more chance there is of us discovering inarguable proof of
extra-terrestrials. It helps too that those in possession of documentation of alien visits to Earth are
starting to come forward. The military people I spoke to are tired of the secrecy surrounding
Roswell and similar cases, particularly as the information is being leaked. I firmly believe that this
documentation will have to be made public within the next three or four years. And if proof of
ETs is finally made public, nobody will be happier than me. What I don't think will happen is that I
will ever see an extra-terrestrial. I'd love to see one, though it's not the biggest priority in my life.
But, as they say on a TV show I'm associated with, the truth is out
