Edgar Mitchell

Edgar D. Mitchell (born September 17, 1930) was the sixth man to walk on the moon. He did this with Alan Shepard as part of the Apollo 14 mission on February 9 1971. The mission was NASA's third manned moon landing.

Mitchell obtained a Doctor of Science degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. He also has two Bachelor of Science degrees, one from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and one from Carnegie Mellon University. He was awarded honorary doctorates from the New Mexico State University, the University of Akron, Carnegie Mellon University and Embry-Riddle University. He began training at NASA in 1966 and served in the US Navy between 1953 and 1972.

Mitchell's academic interests include consciousness and paranormal phenomena. In early 1973, he founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences. The aim of the nonprofit Institute is to conduct and sponsor research into areas that mainstream science has ignored, including psychic events. As well as writing academic journals, Mitchell has written two books; Psychic Exploration (ISBN 0399113428) and The Way of the Explorer (ISBN 157270019X).

He is currently the Advisory Board Chairman of the Institute for Cooperation in Space, co-founded by Dr. Carol Rosin.

Mitchell has publicly expressed his opinions that "he is 90 per cent sure that many of the thousands of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, recorded since the 1940s, belong to visitors from other planets" http://www.virtuallystrange.net/ufo/updates/1998/oct/m12-010.shtml and that UFO's have been the "subject of disinformation in order to deflect attention and to create confusion so the truth doesn’t come out." http://www.etcontact.net/Researchers/Detail44.htm
