Edgar Mitchell, former NASA astronaut, and the sixth human being to set foot on the moon during the Apollo 14 mission in 1971.
After retiring, he devoted his life to the unconventional scientific study of extraterrestrial life.
He died in Florida, United States, at 85 years of age.
However, before leaving Earth in his final trip, Mitchell shocked the general public when, during an interview with the British newspaper Mirror Online, he revealed that aliens visited the Earth during the Cold War, and prevented a nuclear war.
“My own experience talking to people has made it clear the ETs had been attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth,” he told Mirror Online in an interview.
“The extraterrestrials were trying to prevent war by helping create peace on Earth,” he said.

Specifically, the astronaut made reference to UFO sightings in military bases:
“I spoke with several Air Force officers who worked in these bases during the Cold War. They told me that UFOs were frequently seen and that they were able to deactivate their missiles. Other officials on the Pacific coast said that their missiles were frequently shot down by alien ships. There was a lot of activity in those days. “he revealed.
According to Mitchell, the US government systematically hid all kinds of information about these incidents.
To this end, in 1974, a National Security Act was signed, which prohibited the disclosure of any information regarding such sightings.
“White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons – and that’s what the extraterrestrials were interested in. They wanted to know about our military capabilities,” said Mitchell.
But many people remain skeptical despite the fact that not only Mitchell but many other former astronauts, military officers, and high-ranking government officials have spoken about UFO’s and alien life, not to mention the countless declassified top-secret documents that have been made available to the general public in the last couple of years.
Furthermore, Dr. Mitchell, who had a Bachelor of Science degree in aeronautical engineering and a Doctor of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics claimed the Roswell UFO cover-up was real.
NASA responded to Dr. Mitchell’s accusations in the past by saying: “Nasa does not track UFOs. Nasa is not involved in any sort of cover-up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe. Dr. Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue.”
Recently, the general public has been made aware of a top-secret Pentagon program called The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which investigated UFO sightings.
The man who ran the top-secret project, Mr. Luis Elizondo wrote in a resignation letter to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis the following:
“Despite overwhelming evidence at both the classified and unclassified levels, certain individuals in the [Defense] Department remain staunchly opposed to further research on what could be a tactical threat to our pilots, sailors and soldiers, and perhaps even an existential threat to our national security,”
