Ex-astronaut believes aliens crashed on Earth

Former astronaut Edgar Mitchell is among those who believe aliens have crash-landed on Earth.

Mitchell, who in 1971 became the sixth man to walk on the moon, wants congressional hearings into what he calls a secret government that knows all about it. He believes some military and other planes use technology derived from alien spacecraft that have been captured and dissected."When I went to the moon 26 years ago, it was conventional wisdom, religiously and philosophically, that we were still the biological center of the universe," Mitchell told a spiritual gathering called the Prophets Conference in Phoenix on Saturday.

"Few, if any, thinking, knowledgeable people accept that theory anymore."
