“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after.”
– Former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer
You might think that Internet conspiracy theorists are the only people who believe in aliens and their frequent visits to the earth. However, a group of Nasa astronauts like
Edgar Mitchell, Gordon Cooper, Deke Slayton, Brian O’Leary thought extraterrestrials exist and that they have been visiting Earth for some time.
“Yes there has been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. We are not alone in the universe; they have been coming here for a long time. I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real.”
– Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon
Besides the astronauts, there are governments of many countries who maintain classified documents or top secret documents about the UFOs and extraterrestrial beings. These documents have been released into the public domain along with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. In the United States, the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), the NSA (National Security Agency) and the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) have followed suit proving that these agencies have put in immense resources to study the extraterrestrial phenomenon.
The efforts of many military whistleblowers including the politicians and academics have led the topic of UFOs into the realm of reality from that of conspiracy theory. In fact, some of the people have known about the phenomenon for a long time now.
Countries spy on each other to extract information by using a spectrum of methods. The American government’s STARGATE project investigates the parapsychology and uses their findings to spy on other countries. Similarly, the Snowden leaks threw light on how the US government spies on their citizens, major corporations, foreign and financial establishments.
Hypothesis on Aliens by Various Countries
Many governments have black budget operations called as Unacknowledged Special Access Programs (SAPs) in the United States, and they have zero oversight from the Congress.
A document found online in the CIA’s electronic reading room shows how the CIA gathers intelligence with a joint effort between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the USSR. Almost two decades ago, the scientists from the USSR and PRC revealed a joint study on the UFOs which indicated how global governments investigated UFOs through history.
The Soviet and the specialists from China have come up with a program to investigate known incidents and have also decided to exchange video and photographs directly with each other at Dalnegorsk, the chosen meeting destination. In the last four years, more than 10 UFOs were recorded. Specialists are of the opinion that the aliens are interested in places with an abundance of wealth and other useful minerals. Many such incidents were reported in the mountainous regions of China.
Frequent Alien Visits
The extraterrestrials have allegedly been visiting earth for a long time now. So the thought about aliens invading our planet for resources is unlikely to happen. If they had any invasion planned, like the ones shown in our famous films, it would have happened by now.
There are many stories regarding UFO spacecraft landing, humanoid bodies coming out of a vehicle and aliens exploring natural resources. Many researchers are of the opinion these ETs in reality concerned about the well-being of our planet. A large number of people who claim to have alien contact experiences or other type of telepathic experiences have shared a similar sentiment.
An incident in the town of Ruwa, Zimbabwe on September 16th, 1994 confirms that aliens have been visiting us for long. In this incident, over sixty school children claim to have seen many flying objects that seemed like spaceships.
Many such stories talk about aliens visiting earth. For instance, Colonel Ross Dedrickson, who maintained the inventory of the nuclear stockpile for the AEC in the 1950s revealed in an interview about some extraterrestrials who were concerned about the well-being of our planet. He had informed about UFOs and their presence around nuclear missile facilities.
