Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to ever step foot on the moon, has recently disclosed information that some may find unbelievable or rather improbable.
Before we examine Mitchell’s claim lets first shine some light on why he may be someone we can trust, here is a little history:
Edgar Mitchell graduated the Carnegie institute of technology in 1952 with a degree in industrial management, he continued his academic career within the US Navy combining his militaristic career with more education and studied another bachelor degree in Aeronautical engineering within the naval post graduate school in 1961.
On completion of his post-graduate study, Mitchell went on to gain acceptance at the Massachusetts institute of technology in 1964 – it was within the walls of the MIT that he was awarded a doctorate in the sciences, studying aeronautics and astronautics.
In 1966, Mitchell received a secondment to train as an astronaut for NASA – it was within the institution he logged a rather impressive 216 hours and 42 minutes in space – it was in space Mitchell was inspired to say these words:
“You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch’”.
It goes without saying that we are in the presence of a very intelligent, assumingly rational man – all we have to do is take one look at his professional and educational history to gain a firm understanding of the hard work and effort he has put into developing himself; if we cross compare some of the other graduates of MIT to Mitchell, it is easy to see which ballpark he plays in – MIT has given birth to over ten Noble prize winners alone.
Early 2015, Dr Mitchell told the Mirror Online that during the nuclear tests at White Sands, several witness’s believed they had seen alien spacecraft hovering above the mushroom clouds that emerged as the result of the detonation of atomic bombs.
His claims lay in what Mitchell believes were an alien reconnaissance team attempting to discover our military strength, according to Mitchell – the Alien spacecraft would regularly shoot down the missiles and thwart any attempts at testing the high yielding devices.
There are many other claims like this reported by missile control officers within the pacific boundary, often officers have claimed to witness strange overhead objects floating around in strange patterns and pursuing erratic flight paths.
If Dr Mitchell’s claims are indeed true, we need to work out what the intentions of the supposed aliens were. What on earth were they trying to achieve?
There is a school of thought that believes there is a group of alien visitors that keep a tab on us, humanity being the early civilisation that it is, maybe we do have an overwatch – a cosmic balance as it were.
When the observer newspaper interviewed Dr Mitchell, he was asked: What exactly were the crashed aliens doing in Roswell (sic)? He responded by telling them that he believed that they were observing our activity on the proving grounds of White Sands nuclear test site.
Mitchell goes on to mention that the existence of the alien visitors is kept a secret from the public not due to fear of widespread disbelief, rather, a fear that the monetized interests of big business could go into a state of irrelevance if we were given the chance to harbour the technology.
Making sense of the claim
What is interesting and different about Edgar Mitchell’s claims is the fact that at no point does he say “yes Aliens are definitely saving us”, more, his claim is rooted in the evidence of eye witnesses and appears to have strong elements of logic and reasoning.
As we have entered the atomic age – if there were aliens watching our planet, then surely they would want to ensure that we develop at a pace that is kept safe for the surrounding cosmos. Humanity is but a stone’s throw from interstellar travel – maybe it isn’t at all irrational to believe Dr Mitchell, the scientist with two degrees and a doctorate in relevant fields, that perhaps something is being hidden from the human race.
We could potentially be sat on the rock of one of humanities largest discoveries whilst large businesses allegedly hold the keys to the door of full disclosure, will we ever find out for sure? That is the question we all need to ask ourselves from within.
