Veteran of the Apollo 14 mission 1971 and the 6th man to set foot on the moon, Edgar Mitchell, made the shocking statement that aliens were able to stop a nuclear war between the United States and Russia during World War II. The extraterrestrial beings, Mitchell said, want to help create peace on earth; hence, they stopped U.S. from launching a nuclear attack.
Aliens want to know human’s nuclear capacity
Speaking with UK’s Mirror Online, Mitchell said that his sources testified that there were flying saucers spotted at the White Sands facility where the world’s first ever nuclear bomb was discharged in 1945.
“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. 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,” Mitchell told Mirror Online.
Mitchell added that his sources from the U.S. military have spoken about similar sightings in different bases across the country during the 20th century.
“I have spoken to many Air Force officers who worked at these silos during the Cold War. 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. There was a lot of activity in those days.”
Edgar Mitchell and his obsession with aliens
Mitchell is also a retired U.S. Navy personnel aside from being an astronaut, according to a website dedicated to his works. The website further states that he retired from the U.S. Navy in 1972 to focus on studying the “inner space.” In 1973, he founded the Institute of Noetic Science with the intention of establishing scientific methods of research to uncover underlying principles, the website said. He also wanted to find methods to apply appropriate efforts toward the sustainability of the fragile “Spaceship Earth.”
“His interest in the existence of extraterrestrial life has been fueled by respected associates who confided their personal first-hand accounts of incidents including events at Roswell, New Mexico (in 1947), as well as interim sightings and reports of unexplained phenomena in our skies,” as written in the website.

Should people believe Mitchell’s claim of UFO’s?
“Edgar Mitchell is an honourable and truthful man, who I’ve had the privilege of meeting,” Nick Pope, a former Ministry of Defence UFO researcher, told Mirror Online.
Pope, however, noted that there is a more logical explanation about the spotted UFO’s in military bases.
“There have certainly been some intriguing UFO sightings around nuclear facilities, and around military bases more generally, but an alternative explanation is that some of these sightings are attributable to espionage activity involving secret spy planes or drones,” Pope explained.
