• In the summer of 1969, Michael Collins was the pilot for the Apollo 11 Command Module. When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took the Moon Lander to the surface of the Moon, Collins remained in the Command Module and orbited the Moon.
• On the third day of the Apollo 11 mission as the Command Module was traveling to the Moon, Commander Neil Armstrong spotted a nearby object moving roughly on a parallel course with them as they zoomed towards the Moon. The crew guessed that it was the third stage of the Saturn-V rocket that had launched them into space, called the S-IVB. Armstrong radioed Mission Control in Houston and asked “Do you have any idea where the S-IVB is with respect to us?” Mission Control replied. “The S-IVB is about 6,000 nautical miles from you now.”
• Twitter conspiracy theorists went wild, convinced that what the three astronauts saw was an alien spacecraft shadowing them. Later on, Aldrin denied that the Apollo 11 crew had seen a UFO.
• Celebrating fifty years since the Apollo 11 Moon landing, Collins was a guest on an online Twitter chat recently. Collins was asked the typical questions, ie: what food did the astronauts eat, what music did they listen to, and technical questions about the Moon lander. But when one Twitter questioner asked Collins, “Do you believe in life outside Earth?” Collins immediately answered “Yes”.
• [Editor’s Note] Insiders such as William Tompkins who personally knew the engineers at NASA Mission Control have always known that the Apollo 11 crew encountered unambiguous alien spacecraft on and around the Moon. Several large and menacing spacecraft were parked along the rim of the crater in which the Moon lander had landed. Ham radio operators picked up Armstrong reporting to Mission Control on a private medical frequency that ‘Santa Clause’ was there – code for alien spacecraft. Later, Armstrong would reveal privately to close friends or family members that he had seen these alien craft watching them on the Moon. But of course, they were all sworn to secrecy under the penalty of harm to them or their families. These alien occupants of the Moon didn’t particularly like these earth humans being there, and this is why after the scheduled Apollo missions were finished, NASA never ventured back to the Moon.
Michael Collins was the loneliest astronaut of all time when, in 1969, he orbited the Moon as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took the first steps on the desolate satellite.
Alone in the Apollo 11 Command Module, he had plenty of time to think about life in outer space.
And the veteran astronaut has decided firmly in favour of extraterrestrials.
In an online chat this week, marking the 50th anniversary of the first Moon mission, Twitter users asked Michael about the food the astronauts ate, the music they listened to, and the technical side of flying the Moon lander.
But one curious questioner asked “Do you believe in life outside Earth?”
And Michael simply replied “Yes.”
