‘Aliens prevented nuclear war on Earth’: Former NASA astronaut makes unexpected claim

Aliens came to Earth to stop a nuclear war between the US and the Soviet Union at the start of the Cold War, according to the sixth man to walk the surface of the moon.

Edgar Mitchell, an astronaut on the Apollo 14 mission in 1971, says peace-loving aliens visited our planet during weapons tests at US missile bases and the famous White Sands Proving Ground in the New Mexico desert – where the world’s first nuclear bomb was detonated in 1945.

“White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons – and that’s what the extra-terrestrials were interested in,” the 84-year-old told Mirror Online. “They wanted to know about our military capabilities.”

 He added that the extraterrestrials were “attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth.”

Mitchell also says that other officers support his claims.

“I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War,” he said. “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,” he added.

While the claims may seem out-of-this-world, they’ve become somewhat expected from Mitchell, who has been outspoken about his belief in aliens since landing on the surface of the moon.

Mitchell has previously stated that aliens looks quite a lot like the stereotypical image – a small body with a large head and eyes.

He also adamantly maintains that aliens landed in Roswell, New Mexico, nearly 70 years ago, claiming that some of them were captured alive.

He believes the US government has covered up the landing ever since, fearing its superior technology would find its way into the hands of Soviet Russia, the Daily Express reported in May.

“The best course of action was to just lie about it, and keep it to themselves. They labeled it ‘above top-secret’, and that created the long running iron curtain separating a secret group within the government, and the American public,” he said.

However, NASA released a statement in 2008 which said that “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.”

The space agency added that “Dr. Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue.”

Following the NASA statement, Mitchell clarified to Fox News that his comments did not involve NASA, but cited unnamed sources who told him that the Roswell incident did involve alien spacecraft. He also says he has received confirmation from an unnamed intelligence officer at the Pentagon.

In 2004, the former astronaut told the St. Petersburg Times that a “cabal of insiders” in the US government was studying alien bodies, and that this group had stopped briefing US presidents about their progress after John F. Kennedy.

Mitchell also claimed in 1996 that the US government has benefited from extraterrestrials’ “sonic engineering secrets.”

But despite all his claims, he told AskMen last year that he had never actually seen a UFO.

The sixth person to walk on the moon, Mitchell spent nine hours on the lunar surface in 1971, in the Fra Mauro Highlands region.

  1. The real show will be the sheeple’s response. And I don’t know what part your from but up by Cleveland the Chemtrails have increased. Not sure if that’s for the show or if they are just dumping coal ash into our air much like they do fluoride into the water. When we hunt down who has authorized dumping poison on us without our knowledge or consent hanging would be to good for them.

  2. A thought experiment on UFO’s: Of the many photos of flying saucers, there exist a number which are considered authentic. Imagine these authentic photos arranged into chronological order. What emerges is a pattern of rapid evolution of the craft, from crude ships with rubber landing feet in the 1940’s to very sophisticated craft in recent history. This rapid evolution is inconsistent with the idea of flying saucers being the vehicles of advanced beings living at a very great distance away. The conclusion is that these are domestic top secret military craft.

    • Roswell? “Monkeys in space suits” was the statement of the brother of the doctor on the Roswell crash scene.

  3. Some parts of this are true. UFOs have disabled missiles and airplanes ever since the “foo fighters” of WW II. But they are manufactured here on earth, of course. Edgar Mitchell isn’t an idiot (as far as I know), which means he is being told to talk about aliens from space. But I am more interested in the aliens from other countries. “Alien” simply means foreigner, like all the German aliens who arrived with Project Paperclip, for example.

  4. No doubt another mean reason the RKM and the SSG murdered John F. Kennedy (and blamed the soviets).

  5. It is also said that we use only 10% of our brains, where 90% of it is dedicated to the faculty of sight, imagine then if we were using the full 100% and all the 12 strands of DNA activated. I dread to think about it.
    Myself I will not wait for some alien to help me get off my lazy butt.

  6. “…who has been outspoken about his belief in aliens since landing on the surface of the moon.”
    Enough said.

  7. So Aliens came to Earth to stop a nuclear war between the two major powers to ensure peace?
    I see, so their way of peace was to let a minority of rich thugs to treat the human population as slaves and those that refuse get bombed back to the stone age?

    Sounds very plausible.

  8. Edgar Mitchell should not be the object of any or our disdain for all of the lies we’ve endured. But the subject of our repose. God (if there is one) bless him for this attempt to gratify his soul. He knows quite well that he never set foot on the moon, and his soul is compensating for that lack or integrity. I think he is trying to make “peace’ within himself. He certainly knows more than I, but he also was most certainly kept in a “need to know” bubble like everyone else in the Apollo program. If he loves life and his family, he knows the right things to say. But…he never set his foot on the moon, and that’s a fact. Peace on!

  9. Funny stuff….yet reality has a wall built around a country sitting on stolen ground….no intervention whatsoever… protection from folks with sling shots by comparison, that dawg don’t hunt.


  10. Nukes are being used around the world right now, isn’t time to start dumping the juicy intel on this criminal cabal so the public can finally wake up & see who its true enemy’s are?

  11. I’m a big fan of Stanley Kubrick and Disney. The Apollo moon landings could be their best work. Aliens seem to me to be the number one disinformation tool. Kind of like yelling “SQUIRREL”.
