Ex-Astronaut Claims Government Covering Up UFO Info
April 21, 2009
Edgar Mitchell, an astronaut who was present on the original Apollo 14 moon mission in the 1970′s, grew up in Roswell, New Mexico. He claims that the residents of his town were well aware of the top secret information guarded about the 1947 wreckage that the US Military has long since maintained was a balloon crash.
He says that the people in his town were told never to tell what happened there, but that many “didn’t want to go to the grave with their story.”
“Our destiny, in my opinion – and we might as well get started with it – is to become a part of the planetary community,” he said in a recent interview with CNN.
“We should be ready to reach out beyond our planet and beyond our solar system to find out what is really going on out there.”
However, NASA has come out and said on the record that there is nothing to hide, and that the claims that there are UFO’s, and that the world’s governments are attempting to hide it for political reasons, it ridiculous.
“NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover-up about alien life on this planet or anywhere else,” Michael Cabbage, the official spokesperson for NASA said in response. “Period.”
