ALIENS EXIST AND UFOs ARE COVERED-UP BY US GOVERNMENT, SAYS EX-ASTRONAUT
Alien life does exist but the truth is being covered up by the United States government, former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell has claimed.

Mr Mitchell, who was part of the 1971 Apollo 14 moon mission, made the claims in a talk to the fifth annual X-Conference – a meeting of those who believe in UFOs and other life forms.
He also said he had attempted to investigate the 1947 ‘Roswell Incident’, which some believe was the crash-landing of a UFO, but had been thwarted by military authorities.
The former astronaut, 78, said: “We’re not alone. 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 “had been hushed and told not to talk about their experience by military authorities.”
He claimed he had raised the issue of evidence from local residents with the Pentagon 10 years ago. An unnamed admiral working for the Joint Chiefs of Staff promised to uncover more information for Mitchell but was denied access when he “tried to get into the inner workings of that process.” Mitchell claimed the admiral 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,” Mitchell 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 spokesman for NASA told CNN: “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.”
Stephen Bassett, head of the Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which hosted the X-Conference, told CNN: “There is a third rail [in American politics], and that is the UFO question.”
