Aliens have contacted humans several times but governments have hidden the truth for 60 years, the sixth man to walk on the moon has claimed.

Dr Mitchell, 77, said during a radio interview that sources at the space agency who had had contact with aliens described the beings as ‘little people who look strange to us.’

He said supposedly real-life ET’s were similar to the traditional image of a small frame, large eyes and head.
Chillingly, he claimed our technology is ‘not nearly as sophisticated’ as theirs and “had they been hostile”, he warned ‘we would be been gone by now’.

Dr Mitchell, along with with Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard, holds the record for the longest ever moon walk, at nine hours and 17 minutes following their 1971 mission.

‘I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real,’ Dr Mitchell said.

‘It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it’s leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it.

‘I’ve been in military and intelligence circles, who know that beneath the surface of what has been public knowledge, yes – we have been visited. Reading the papers recently, it’s been happening quite a bit.’

Dr Mitchell, who has a Bachelor of Science degree in aeronautical engineering and a Doctor of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics claimed Roswell was real and similar alien visits continue to be investigated.

He told the astonished Kerrang! radio host Nick Margerrison: “This is really starting to open up. I think we’re headed for real disclosure and some serious organisations are moving in that direction.’

Mr Margerrison said: ‘I thought I’d stumbled on some sort of astronaut humour but he was absolutely serious that aliens are definitely out there and there’s no debating it.’

Officials from NASA, however, were quick to play the comments down.

In a statement, a spokesman said: “NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe.

‘Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue.’

 

Could we find aliens by searching for their Vibrations?

Astronomers have so far been attempting to find alien life by sniffing out their chemical signature.

But researchers say they have found a better way of finding extra-terrestrial beings: through vibrations.

The European team has now created the first tiny motion detector that it claims may someday help find microscopic life forms on distant planets.

Taking advantage of movement, which they call ‘a universal signature of life,’ the sensor aims to identify on a nano-level the tiny motions that all life forms make.

They team began to explore the possibility of searching for life with a sensor attuned to those tiny vibrations in organisms such as bacteria and yeast.

‘The nanomotion detector allows studying life from a new perspective: life is movement,’ said Professor Giovanni Longo at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. 

‘This means that the nanomotion detector can detect any small movement of living systems and deliver a complementary point of view in the search for life.’

HOW DOES THE SENSOR WORK?

The sensor uses a nano-sized cantilever to detect motion.

A cantilever is essentially a beam that is anchored only at one end, with the other end bearing a load.

It is most often used with bridges and buildings, but in the sensor it is used on the micrometre scale, and it can hold around 500 bacteria.

The idea comes from the technology behind an existing microscope, the atomic force microscope, which uses a cantilever to produce pictures of the very atoms on a surface.

The cantilever scans the surface like the needle of a record player and its up-and-down movement is read by a laser to produce an image.

The motion sensor works the same way, but here the sample is attached on the cantilever itself. For example, a bacterium attaches to the cantilever.

If the bacterium is alive, it will inevitably move in some way. That motion also moves the much smaller and sensitive cantilever and it is captured by the readout laser as series of vibrations.

The signal is taken as a sign of life.
