Edgar Mitchell: US Covers Up Aliens For 50 Years
by Tom Rhodes
The Sunday Times - (London)
October 11, 1998
NEW YORK -- There are no little green men on the moon. Edgar Mitchell knows this because in 1971 he became the sixth man to walk on it. He is positive, however, that aliens have landed on Earth.
Sharing the podium at a conference in Connecticut yesterday with "alien abductees" and others who claim to have had contact with unidentified flying objects (UFOs), the former Nasa astronaut intensified his campaign to persuade Washington to acknowledge life beyond our skies.
Mitchell argues that life is almost certain to exist on any other planet with a supportive environment. Some physicists, he points out, now believe it is possible to travel faster than light, even if humble earthlings have yet to achieve it.
Dr. Mitchell, could very well be correct. But I am not seeing it, words are words,
These are Japanese balloon bombs, used during the Second World War to attack the US mainland. You can read my earlier article about them here. Despite being a resounding failure, the balloon bombs were nevertheless an extraordinary feat of ingenuity, carefully adjusting their altitude by detonating small charges to shed ballast when flying too low, and venting gas when too high. Some fusen bakudan made it as far east as Michigan, although of 6,000 launched in the winter of 1944 only 310 were ever found in the US. The only casualties occurred when a group of six Oregonians on a picnic trip discovered a landed balloon, their disturbance unfortunately set off the bomb.
But then again, what is alien?
Has he ever seen an alien craft before and touched it to compare?
I do not Marcell was completely wrong, just mistaken in what he thought the object was.
