"Russia and the U. S. have announced they are definitely planning
several space machines. So it's quite possible that the first space ships
or satellites may encounter other interplanetary machines," manned or
otherwise. Our space devices may even be closely approached by such alien
Astronaut Storey Musgrove
Certainty there are hugely advanced civilizations, intelligences, life
forms out there. I believe they're so advanced they're even doing
interstellar travel. I believe it's possible they even came here. "
Astronaut Gordon Cooper and Ed Mitchell.
"The evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real incident and
that indeed an alien craft did crash and that material was recovered from
that crash site, "says Mitchell, who became the sixth man on the moon
in the Apollo 14 mission. Mitchell doesnt say hes seen a UFO. But he says
hes met with high-ranking military officers who admitted involvement with
alien technology and hardware. Cooper told a U.N. committee recently,
"Every day in the U.S.A., our radar instruments capture objects of
form and composition unknown to us.", Cooper speculates that public
skepticism toward UFOs will shift dramatically.
Dr. Ed Mitchell Apollo 14
Astronaut, MSN Interview 10/98.
UFO Community on MSN
"I have been over the years very skeptical like many others. But in
the last ten years or so, I have known the late Dr. Alan Hynek - who I
highly admire. I know and currently work with Dr. Jacques Vallee. I've
come to realize that the evidence is building up to make this a valid and
researchable question. Further, because my personal motivation has always
been to understand our universe better, and my own theoritcal work has
convinced me that life is everywhere in the universe that has been
permitted to evolve,I consider this a very timely question. By becoming
more involved with the serious research field, I've seen the evidence
mount towards the truth of these matters. I rely upon the testimony of
contacts who I have had - old timers - who were involved in official
positions in government and intelligence and militiary over the last 50
years. We can not say that today's government is really covering it up - I
think that most of them don't know what is going on anymore than the
Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev
"It followed us during half of our orbit. We observed it on the light
side, and when we entered the shadow side, it disapeared completely. It
was an engineered structure, made from some type of metal,
approximately 40 meters long with inner hulls. The object was narrow here
and wider here, and inside there were openings. Some places had
projections like small wings. The object stayed very close to us. We
photographed it, and our photos showed it to be 23 to 28 meters away.
"-Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev commenting on a UFO siting that occured
while en route to the Solyut 6 space station in April of 1979.
Astronaut Scott Carpenter
"At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there
was a constant surveillance by UFOs. "-Astronaut Scott
Carpenter--Carpenter photographed a UFO while in orbit on May 24, 1962.
NASA still has not released the photograph.
Commander Eugene Cernan
"...I've been asked about UFOs and I've said publicly I thought they
were somebody else, some other civilization." -Commander Eugene
Cernan, Commanded the Apollo 17 Mission--The quote is from a 1973 article
in the Los Angeles Times.
Col Gordon Cooper
"I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are
visiting this planet from other planets which obviously are a little more
technically advanced than we are here on Earth. I feel that we need to
have a top level, coordinated program to scientifically collect and
analyze data from all over the earth concerning any type of encounter, and
to determine how best to interface with these visitors in a friendly
fashion....For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed
on all specialists and astronauts. I can now reveal that every day, in the
USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown
to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of
documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public.
"-Colonel L. Gordon Cooper, Mercury and Gemini Astronaut, in an
address to the UN in 1985 after announcing that he had seen and chased
UFOs over Germany in the 1950s. Cooper also reported a greenish object
which passed by his capsule going east to west (opposite normal man-made
orbits) while in orbit in May of 1963. The object was tracked by
ground-based equipment in Perth, Australia. The press was told it could
not question Col. Cooper on this aspect of the mission.
"I had a good friend at Roswell, a fellow officer. He had to be
careful about what he said. But it sure wasn't a weather balloon, like the
Air Force cover story. He made it clear to me what crashed was a craft of
alien origin, and members of the crew were recovered. "-Col. Gordon
"I know other astronauts share my feelings....And we know the
government is sitting on hard evidence of UFOs. "-Col. Gordon Cooper
in a January 14, 1997 interview in the National Enquirer.
Astronaut James McDivitt
"At one stage we even thought it might be necessary to take evasive
action to avoid a collision. "-Astronaut James McDivitt commenting on
an orbital encounter he and Ed White had with a "weird object"
with arm-like extensions which approached their capsule. Later in the
flight they saw two similar objects over the caribbean.
Dr. Edgar Michell
"I've talked with people of stature--of military and government
credentials and position--and heard their stories, and their desire to
tell their stories openly to the public. And that got my attention very,
very rapidly....The first hand experiences of these credible witnesses
that, now in advanced years are anxious to tell their story, we can't deny
that, and the evidence points to the fact that Roswell was a real
incident, and that indeed an alien craft did crash, and that material was
recovered from that crash site. "-Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14
astronaut--from a taped interview.
"The U.S. Government hasn't maintained secrecy regarding UFOs It's
been leaking out all over the place. But the way it's been handled is by
denial, by denying the truth of the documents that have leaked. By
attempting to show them as fraudulent, as bogus of some sort. There has
been a very large disinformation and misinformation effort around this
whole area. And one must wonder, how better to hide something out in the
open than just to say, 'It isn't there. You're deceiving yourself if you
think this is true.' And yet, there it is right in front of you. So it's a
disinformation effort that's concerning here, not the fact that they have
kept the secret. They haven't kept it. It's been getting out into the
public for fifty years or more. "-Dr. Edgar Mitchell, from the same
Astronaut Brian O'leary
"We all know UFOs are real. All we need to ask is where are they
from. "-Dr. Edgar Mitchell, 1971 "We have contact with alien
cultures. "-Astronaut Dr. Brian O'leary, unknown source.
Mercury Astronaut Donald Slayton
"I was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when I spotted this
object. I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice, bright, sunny afternoon. I
thought the object was a kite, then I realized that no kite is gonna fly
that high. As I got closer it looked like a weather balloon, gray and
about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the darn thing
it didn't look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer, a disk.
About the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going way from me --
and there I was, running at about 300 miles per hour. I tracked it for a
little way, and then all of a sudden the damn thing just took off. It
pulled about a 45 degree climbing turn and accelerated and just flat
disappeared." -Donald Slayton, Mercury astronaut, in a 1951
Major Robert White
"There ARE things out there! There absolutely is! "-Major Robert
White exclaiming over the radio about a UFO encounter taking place on a 58
mile high X-15 flight on July 17, 1962. He later reported "I have no
idea what it could be. It was greyish in color and about thirty to forty
feet away. "
Female Cosmonaut: "I'll take it and hold it with my right hand. Look
out the peephole! I have it! "Male Cosmonaut: "There is
something! If we do not get out the world will never know about
this!" -From the final transmission of a pair of Cosmonauts whose
scheduled seven day mission was interupted by a malfunction of unknown
origins. This piece of conversation was recorded on February 24, 1961
while they were trying to repair the damage. The two Cosmonauts were never
heard from again.
