Apollo 14 Astronaut Claims Alien Intervention Prevented Nuclear War On Earth

Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon, claims that members of the United States Air Force witnessed UFOs flying over missile bases in the U.S., including the White Sands Missile Base in New Mexico, in order to disarm the U.S. if a nuclear war broke out between the U.S. and Russia.

Mitchell, who grew up in New Mexico, was quoted by Mirror Online as having said that after speaking with military officers, it became “clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war.”

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 to help create peace on Earth.

Mitchell also said that he had spoken to officers who mentioned frequent UFO sightings who had told him that the UFOs disabled missiles and test missiles, frequently shooting them down with their alien spacecraft over the Pacific Ocean.

He also said that UFOs were seen hovering over the first nuclear weapon test in the White Sands deserts on July 16, 1945.

Some expressed skepticism about Mitchell’s claim. Nick Pope, a former UFO researcher with the UK’s Ministry of Defense, said that it’s unlikely an alien civilization would be just slightly more advanced than humans. “Chances are they’d be millions of years ahead of us and could do anything they wanted to,” he added.

The 84-year-old NASA veteran has frequently spoken about his belief in aliens since he first landed on the moon during the 1971 Apollo 14 mission. He previously stated that aliens do indeed resemble the pop culture image of a small body with a large head and large eyes.

Mitchell, who has a Master of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautis as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in aeronautical engineering has also said the Roswell cover-up was real, the Daily Mail reported.

After a radio interview years ago asserting that claim, a NASA spokesman said, “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.”

Insinuating that no evidence is presently available, NASA’s chief scientist Ellen Stofan told a public panel in Washington back in April that she believes we’ll see “definitive evidence” of alien life in the next 10 to 20 years.

What do you think of Mitchell’s claims?
