Edgar Mitchell


American astronaut who, through an Apollo flight, became the sixth man on the Moon on 1/31/1971. He also worked as an aeronautical engineer and as a Doctor of Science, teaching at the college level. From 1952-1959 he served in the U.S. Navy and, from 1964-1965, he worked as a project manager with the Navy's Field Office; he was in charge of the Manned Orbiting Lab.

"Gazing through 240,000 miles of space toward the stars and planet from which I had come, "he once said, "I suddenly experiences the universe as intelligent, loving, harmonious." Mitchell is among those who believe aliens have crash-landed on earth. He wants to see congressional hearings into what he calls a secret the U.S. government knows all about. He believes some military and other planes use technology derived from alien space-craft that have been captured and dissected.

In 1972, Mitchell resigned from the astronaut corps after six years and a year later, founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences to investigate relationships between science and spirituality.

Married to his third wife, Sheilah Ann Ledbetter - a Playboy bunny turned Yoga instructor who took him to court on a paternity charge five years before they married - Mitchell also has two grown kids and makes his living as a management and technology consultant.
