Apollo 14 Astronaut and sixth man to walk on the Moon, Edgar Mitchell, was quoted saying that “Peace-loving aliens tried to save America from nuclear war.” 

Excerpt from the Interview:

“Well I think it’s out there in the public. Circumstances were of course, that the Roswell incident was a post World War II event. We were doing nuclear testing over in the White Sands proving ground which was right across the mountain from Roswell and the Roswell Air Field was a military base supporting that. So it seems that most likely what the aliens were interested in was the fact we had a weapons testing facility at the White Sands Proving Ground and were also interested in what we were doing or what the U.S. military was doing.

What exactly were these crashed aliens doing there?

They were observing our activities at the White Sands proving ground and were monitoring our development.

A story went viral two weeks ago citing you as saying, “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.” Can you elaborate?

I don’t remember speaking to them personally. I don’t know where they got that information. I didn’t make those statements. Somebody has added to my words. Those weren’t my exact words but I don’t necessarily disagree with those statements.

But have you been told by individuals who worked at the White Sands nuclear testing facility that there was UFO activity?

Yes I have.”
