We Are Not Alone

Dr. Edgar Mitchell, scientist and the sixth man to walk on the moon

Former astronaut, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, came out some months ago on a BBC broadcast stating unequivocally that he had personal knowledge of extraterrestrial visits to earth. This CNN article on Monday reiterated that position well:

Mitchell, who was part of the 1971 Apollo 14 moon mission, asserted Monday that extraterrestrial life exists, and that the truth is being concealed by the U.S. and other governments.
 
He delivered his remarks during an appearance at the National Press Club following the conclusion of the fifth annual X-Conference, a meeting of UFO activists and researchers studying the possibility of alien life forms.

Mankind has long wondered if we’re “alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we’re not alone,” Mitchell said.

How many galaxies are there in the Universe? William Keel, Professor of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Alabama, summed up the proposed number of galaxies able to be seen by the Hubble telescope:

“…the Hubble telescope is capable of detecting about 80 billion galaxies (although not all of these within the foreseeable future!). In fact, there must be many more than this, even within the observable Universe…”

Though evidence is necessary to remove any doubt, I’ve long held the belief that we’re not alone. Sheer numbers of possible planets where life could exist number in the billions and in the hundreds of millions for earth-like planets that could inhabit life.

How hard would it be for a civilization advanced enough for interstellar space travel to keep contact to a minimum or make sightings fleeting?

Dr. Mitchell was interviewed on Kerrang Radio, July 23, 2008. Listen to Mitchell saying there is life in the Universe. He says we have been visited, and that UFOs have been covered up by the government for a long time. He says he’s been inside military circles and they know we’ve been visited and talk about it behind closed doors. He says he’s been involved in certain research committees and knows people who know the real story.

Dismiss it or argue the possibility all you want, but what if we are not alone?
