In February 1971 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell flew on Apollo 14 and was the 6th man to walk on the
moon. He is credited with the longest moonwalk in history for his nine-hour walk in the Fra Mauro
Highlands region of the moon. Having always had an interest in the paranormal, Mitchell even
conducted ESP experiments during his Apollo 14 mission.In his testimony, he acknowledges the
fact that there have been ET visitations here on Earth as well as crashed craft and recovered
materials and bodies. He also speaks of the concealment that has been prevalent surrounding
this subject for over 50 years and the lack of oversight and visible governmental control. He is
concerned over our stewardship of this Earth and sees our growing environmental crisis as real.

Mitchell: “But it has been the subject of disinformation in order to deflect attention and to create
confusion so the truth doesn’t come out. Disinformation is simply another method of stonewalling.
And that’s been used consistently for the last 50 years or so: Weather balloons over Roswell as
opposed to a crashed craft of some sort. That is disinformation. We’ve seen that for 50 years.
And it’s the best way to hide something… Whatever activity is going on, to the extent that it is a
clandestine group, a quasi-government group, a quasi-private group, it is without any type, as far
as I can tell, of high level government oversight. And that is of great concern.”

Since his retirement, Mitchell has been very vocal about his belief in extraterrestrials, interviewing
on Dateline NBC, Fox News and Larry King Live.

Former astronaut: Man not alone in universe
      STORY HIGHLIGHTS
      He says governments are concealing evidence that extraterrestrials exist
      The astronaut is from Roswell, New Mexico, the site of an alleged UFO crash
      Mitchell: Roswell residents "told not to talk about their experience" by military

       (CNN) -- Earth Day may fall later this week, but as far as former NASA astronaut Edgar
Mitchell and other UFO enthusiasts are concerned, the real story is happening elsewhere.
    
Former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, shown in 1998, says "there really is no doubt we are
being visited."

Mitchell, who was part of the 1971 Apollo 14 moon mission, asserted Monday that
extraterrestrial life exists, and that the truth is being concealed by the U.S. and other
governments.

He delivered his remarks during an appearance at the National Press Club following the
conclusion of the fifth annual X-Conference, a meeting of UFO activists and researchers
studying the possibility of alien life forms.

Mankind has long wondered if we're "alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we
really have evidence. No, we're not alone," Mitchell said.

"Our destiny, in my opinion, and we might as well get started with it, is [to] become a part of
the planetary community. ... 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."

Mitchell grew up in Roswell, New Mexico, which some UFO believers maintain was the site of
a UFO crash in 1947. He said residents of his hometown "had been hushed and told not to
talk about their experience by military authorities." They had been warned of "dire
consequences" if they did so.

But, he claimed, they "didn't want to go to the grave with their story. They wanted to tell
somebody reliable. And being a local boy and having been to the moon, they considered me
reliable enough to whisper in my ear their particular story."
Roughly 10 years ago, Mitchell claimed, he was finally given an appointment at Pentagon to
discuss what he had been told.

An unnamed admiral working for the Joint Chiefs of Staff promised to uncover the truth
behind the Roswell story, Mitchell said. The stories of a UFO crash "were confirmed," but the
admiral was then denied access when he "tried to get into the inner workings of that
process."

The same admiral, Mitchell claimed, now denies the story.

"I urge those who are doubtful: Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has
really been going on. Because there really is no doubt we are being visited," he said.
"The universe that we live in is much more wondrous, exciting, complex and far-reaching
than we were ever able to know up to this point in time."

A NASA spokesman denied any cover-up.

"NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover-up about alien life on
this planet or anywhere else -- period," Michael Cabbage said Monday.
Debates have continued about what happened at Roswell. The U.S. Air Force said in 1994
that wreckage recovered there in 1947 was most likely from a balloon-launched classified
government project.

Stephen Bassett, head of the Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which hosted the
X-Conference, said that the truth about extraterrestrial life is being suppressed because it is
politically explosive.

"There is a third rail [in American politics], and that is the UFO question. It is many
magnitudes more radioactive than Social Security ever dreamed to be," Bassett said.
