UFOs and Beyond: Apollo 14 Astronaut Ed Mitchell Is Looking Up

      Apollo 14 moonwalker Edgar Mitchell may be the only astronaut to conduct an ESP experiment in space, or openly state that extraterrestrials could theoretically live on the moon. But when historians look back at the Apollo moon effort a thousand years from now, Mitchell wants to be remembered for the down-to-Earth attitude he took toward his assigned task on the moon.

“Our task was to start to do the science,” he told NBC News. “And we did that. We did it well. We brought back the first real samples from the moon.”

Sure, Apollo 11 brought about 50 pounds of moon rocks back to Earth, and Apollo 12 brought back 75 pounds. As most folks will recall, a potentially fatal mishap forced Apollo 13 to come back from the moon without ever landing on its surface — which meant the pressure was on Mitchell and his Apollo 14 crewmates, Alan Shepard and Stuart Roosa, to help get America’s space program back on track in 1971.

The mission succeeded, though not without a hitch or two … or three. In his recently published book, “Earthrise: My Adventures as an Apollo 14 Astronaut,” Mitchell recounts all the twists and turns that brought him from farm life near Roswell, New Mexico, to the moon and back. . . .

. . . Mitchell makes no secret about his belief that life exists elsewhere in the universe, and he’s willing to accept the possibility that alien spacecraft have visited Earth. When he returned to his hometown in New Mexico, he met with the relatives and colleagues of people involved in the 1947 Roswell UFO incident — and decided there was ‘adequate proof that the Roswell incident was a real thing.” . . .

'Aliens on the Moon' TV Show Adds Weird UFO Twists to Apollo Tales

     The pixels in a photograph can be funny things, as demonstrated time and time again in “Aliens on the Moon: The Truth Exposed,” a TV documentary airing on Sunday’s 45th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing.

What one person sees as a overly magnified image with distortions that merely form strange patterns, another person sees as incontrovertible proof that extraterrestrials have left giant antennas, spaceships and industrial complexes on the moon.

“There’s no doubt that these structures exist,” Robert Kiviat, producer of the two-hour SyFy Channel show, told NBC News. (NBC News Digital and SyFy are both part of NBC Universal.)

Is Kiviat serious? He sounds like it. “My goal would be, right upon the airing on Sunday night, maybe even the day after, to approach the NASA administrator in Washington … and pretty much say, ‘Look, here are these photographs, here’s what we know from the NASA data, we would love to work with this under NASA auspices,'” he said. . . .
