I had the opportunity to interview astronaut Scott Kelly recently and, of course, I had to ask him about UFOs. Kelly has spent over 520 days in space during four different missions. In one mission alone he spent 340 consecutive days on the International Space Station. The longest time any U.S. astronaut has spent in space on a single mission.
Kelly was a guest speaker at a science advocacy event held by 3M covering their recent survey regarding the public attitudes towards science. The study was called the State of Science Index. The event began with a presentation by Kelly, then 3M personnel and science journalists joined Kelly on-stage for a panel regarding the findings of the survey. Watch the panel at this link.
Soon after the panel, I was able to get some time to ask Kelly questions one on one. When I slid in my question about UFOs, he said he had seen a lot of strange things in space. He also said he saw weird things flying Navy jets over the ocean. He says although he spotted strange objects occasionally, they always turned out to be optical illusions. He does believe there is life out there, but that the distances are so vast, there is probably no way they have gotten here.
Kelly admits he has no evidence that aliens are not visiting us, but he is 99.99% certain it’s not happening.
You can read more about my interview and read his exact quotes in my recent Scott Kelly story for Den of Geek. There is also a bustling debate going on in the comments section, so go join in!
He is right. They don’t come from outer space, but ufo’s do exist, are inter dimensional.
Even if those guys have seen something out there, they’re not allowed to talk about it. I’m quiet sure he’s not telling 100% the truth but I might be wrong too so… Hard stuff to have an opinion on.
UFOs are from race from different dimension on Earth and have been around since before humanity.
Droam: “Even if those guys have seen something out there, they’re not allowed to talk about it. ” == Another UFOric fairy tale — even Mitchell and Cooper made clear there were no constraints on talking about their experiences and observations in space.
