We have all heard stories about conspiracies involving aliens from outer space. Usually we perceive such stories with disbelief and call them fantasies. But what if one of these stories came from a very famous man and a distinguished astronaut? Edgar Mitchell, a former NASA astronaut, claims that aliens visited Earth to prevent a nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
– Edgar Mitchell was the sixth man on the moon and the lunar module pilot on the Apollo 14 mission.
– Together with their commander, Alan Shepard, they spent more than 30 hours on the surface of the moon, collecting 45 kilograms of lunar samples.
– Mitchell claims that the aliens were trying to prevent a nuclear war on Earth and help establish peace.
Aliens and the Cold War
In an interview with Mirror Online, Mitchell talks about his version of events. He refers to the famous White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, where the first Trinity atomic bomb was tested in 1945. According to Mitchell, the aliens were interested in the weapons capabilities of the United States and the Soviet Union. They wanted to prevent a nuclear war and help establish peace on Earth.
UFOs and missiles
Mitchell also claims that unnamed Air Force officers told him that their missiles often disabled or shot down UFOs flying overhead.
