Cooper will be featured on the UPN television show "Paranormal Borderline" on Tuesday, May 7, 1996 (check local listings), and according to the segment producers, he will describe not only his own sightings and beliefs, but also an incident of direct contact that happened at Edwards Air Force Base in the 1950s.
Meanwhile, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell appeared recently on the NBC TV program Dateline, promoting his new book, "The Way of the Explorer," and told an obviously surprised Dateline interviewer that he believes the government is hiding information about UFOs. Mitchell said there is very strong evidence suggesting alien visitation to the earth, and that he has personally talked with credible people in three different countries -- Belgium, Russia, and the U.S. -- who told him they have seen alien lifeforms face to face.
Mitchell insists he has not had any UFO experiences of his own, and -- countering claims of Richard Hoagland and others -- he says no astronaut saw anything "alien" on the moon. Nonetheless, he suspects that some department of the government was aware of the possibility of alien contact during the moon explorations, even if NASA officials were not. If he and other astronauts were sent to the moon without benefit of such secret information, that would amount to "criminal culpability" on the government's part, Mitchell said.
In a taped interview conducted last week, Linda Moulton Howe asked Mitchell if anyone had cautioned him about the potential risk in speaking out as boldly as he has been doing.
"No, not yet," Mitchell said. Howe then asked him what he would say or do if some official warned him to be less talkative. "I'd tell him to go to hell," Mitchell said with obvious anger.
