Aliens exist and have visited Earth

It's official, aliens exist according to one of the few people to have walked on the moon.
Dr Edgar Mitchell has confirmed their existence in a recent Kerrang! radio interview.
Mitchell, along with the 1971 Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard, hold the record for the longest ever moon walk - clocking in at nine hours and 17 minutes.
He told radio host Nick Margerrison: "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."
"This is really starting to open up. I think we're headed for real disclosure and some serious organisations are moving in that direction," he continued.
Supposedly the ETs were similar to the traditional image of an alien with a small frame, large head and eyes.
He also claimed our technology is "not nearly as sophisticated" as theirs and. "had they been hostile, we would be been gone by now."
Margerrison later 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."
It is not the first time Mitchell has discussed the possibility of alien life, previously raising the possibility of alien technology in the hands of humans, over ten years ago.
NASA has denied claims of a cover-up, stating: "Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinions on this issue."
We suspect the men-in-black will visit, prior to him retracting his statements.
