about Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell's latest foray intoX-Files
Mitchell, who for years has been an advocate of ESP and paranormal stuff, told a British radio program that NASA and the US government have long been covering up the fact that Earth has been visited by aliens. He's said such stuff before, to little effect.
Now Mitchell has gone mainstream.
The respected newswire service Reuters has picked up the story, and not in a "wacky newz today" way.
For the record, NASA still denies any alien cover-up.
But then they would, wouldn't they?
