I once spoke with Dr. Mitchell and found him to be an incredibly warm, genuine, and caring person. He told me that he spoke with people at Roswell
who gave him their first hand accounts of the 1947 incident. What I found most interesting in my conversation with him is how he has a true kindness
about him, and perspective that all life is interconnected.
I ditto that impression. Sweet man, imaginative and forward-looking.
And he was picked by Al Shepard to be his Lunar Module Pilot for one simple reason, Al revealed: "I wanted to come back."
Actually, Mitchell had earlier served on an Apollo backup crew where his commander was Gordon Cooper.
Boy, what I wouldn't have given to be a bug on the wall when THEY two started privately discussing thngs.
Thing is, this is harking back to Roswell once again, and all that entails. For instance, I saw the DC documentary On NASA's unexplained, just the
other night. You and the astronauts spoke plausibly about the various aspects of the docu, but ultimately, when it came to Roswell, it was left to the
other researchers to once again debunk Roswell, this time some location office with a well preserved schematic diagram of a Mogul balloon, not a
Skyhook. Why do they do the Mogul thing again, (in any case neither balloons resemble a recovered disc et al, at all) why do the sticky tape thing
again, when it is clearly sticky tape they are demonstrating, not something embossed on an I-beam, the first thing a child would do, (Marcel junior
for instance) is pull sticky tape off, if it was at all possible. So, okay, we go along with the PTB thing that it was a useful con on their part to
promote the UFO thing at the time, but why continue in the present to promote the balloon thing, when the anecdotes of the time are clearly not in
synch with balloon types. Balloons in the air, especially Skyhook will be astounding to anyone unaware, but wreckage on the ground, including sticky
tape, would not fool a child.
