Ed Mitchell claims ET prevented a nuclear war

Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell believes that visitors from space may have prevented armageddon.
The 84-year-old, who was the sixth man to walk on the surface of the moon back in 1971, maintains that our planet has been visited by intelligent extraterrestrials for years and that they may have even intervened in our affairs in an attempt to prevent a nuclear apocalypse.

Mitchell's views are based on many of the experiences communicated to him by military personnel who claim, among other things, to have witnessed UFOs over missile bases during the Cold War.

"UFOs were frequently seen overhead and often disabled their missiles," he said.

"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's rather spectacular claims however have been met with a sizable degree of skepticism.

During a Kerrang Radio interview in 2008 he maintained that mankind had been in contact with aliens many times and that this had been covered up by world governments for over 60 years.

"I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we've been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real," he said.

A NASA spokesman at the time however was keen to distance the agency from Mitchell's remarks.

"NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe," he said. "Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue."

Indeed, Neptune and Pluto have irregular moons as well, but this one is the biggest and rater fascinating as it seems it is probably mostly ice! A true water world! It would be very confusing spending time on the surface, the sunrises and sunsets would be from any angle at any time. These irregular moons have chaotic orbits. {media] [/media] Yeah, that's another weird thing. Hyperion is tumbling erratically in orbit but always presents the same side when Cassini passes and takes a shot of it.

That first shot of Hyperion reminds me of a coral reef. I wonder if it was formed by material (water? Steam? Other?) being ejected from within. Or are they simply lots and lots of craters, caused by bits of debris crashing into it? "You can't make this stuff up," is such a cliche, but with nature, it's true.

They could be so advanced they know how to use wormholes. Why do you believe there is a practical physical application of Wormholes? If they do exist they would be incredibly tiny - and the only way to keep one open is with a theoretical matter - we do not know if such even exists. IF we could use them for communications, that would be an amazing feat all on it's own - physical travel as far as I know remains in the realm of Science Fiction only. And why do Aliens always have to be advanced? I just don't believe its that far fetched we have been visited. Too many reputable people have seen the... [More]

It is suspected to be mostly water Ice. Like most of Saturn's moons, Hyperion's low density indicates that it is composed largely of water ice with only a small amount of rock.

They could be so advanced they know how to use wormholes. Why wormholes? Why would you think that is something that is attainable or desirable for interstellar travel? I just don't believe its that far fetched we have been visited. Too many reputable people have seen them. This has been covered before. Woo is woo no matter the source. I think they have been coming here since the Neanderthals or possible even before. Who knows maybe they created us. Maybe there really is some truth to the bibles creation story. And why do you think this? Do you have evidence to support it?

It is thought that Hyperion may be similar to a loosely accreted pile of rubble in its physical composition. However, unlike most of Saturn's moons, Hyperion has a low albedo (0.20.3), indicating that it is covered by at least a thin layer of dark material. This may be material from Phoebe (which is much darker) that got past Iapetus. Hyperion is redder than Phoebe and closely matches the color of the dark material on ... [More]

They would like to get closeup hi res imagery of the total surface and have been frustrated in every pass. The final close flyby was a bit better. http://news.discovery.com/space/cassini-makes-its-final-pass-by-saturns-moon-hyperion-150601.htm

A real unsolved mystery is Saturn's moon, Hyperion. Nothing else quite like it in the solar system. The more you read about it the weirder it gets. Hyperion is lovely - it reminds me of a large chunk of space coral.
