NASA Astronaut Makes Unprecedented Claim: "Aliens Prevented Nuclear War On Earth"
If aliens visited us here on Earth today, do you think we'd greet them warmly, or with aggression or skepticism? Some people say they already have visited us. Not only that, but they've taken an active role in geopolitical affairs to prevent us from annihilating ourselves.
According to Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the surface of the moon, a peaceful extraterrestrial species visited the Earth at the beginning of the cold war to put a stop to an imminent nuclear war that had the capacity to destroy most life on this planet.
Mitchell, an astronaut on the Apollo 14 mission back in 1971, said these peaceful aliens visited during weapons tests at the famous White Sands Proving Ground in New Mexico and had a distinct interest in our military capability.
"White Sands was a testing ground for atomic weapons - and that's what the extra-terrestrials were interested in," the 84-year-old astronaut told Mirror Online. “They wanted to know about our military capabilities.”
He added that the aliens were "attempting to keep us from going to war and help create peace on Earth."
"I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War," he said. "They told me UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles.”
"Other officers from bases on the Pacific coast told me their [test] missiles were frequently shot down by alien spacecraft,” he added.
The claims may seem out there, but they've come to be expected from him. Mitchell has become incredibly outspoken about his belief in aliens since he landed on the moon. He says that they often look like the stereotypical "gray" alien; small bodied with large heads and eyes.
