Are UFOs real? Famous people who believed

The former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell has claimed that aliens exist and their visits are being covered up by the United States government. Mitchell is in good company in his beliefs. Here we highlight 12 other public figures who believe that extraterrestrials may have been visiting our planet over the last 100 years.

A number of public figures have publicly stated that UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin Jimmy Carter, US President from 1976 to 1980, promised while on the campaign trail that he would make public all documents on UFOs if elected. He said: "I don't laugh at people any more when they say they've seen UFOs. I've seen one myself."
General Douglas MacArthur, the Korean and Second World War soldier, said in 1955 that "the next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets. The politics of the future will be cosmic, or interplanetary".
J Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI from its inception in 1935 to 1972, said of a famous incident when flying saucers were allegedly fired at over Los Angeles in 1942: "We must insist upon full access to disks recovered. For instance, in the LA case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination."
Monsignor Corrado Balducci, a Vatican theologian, said: "Extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon. The Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans from its embassies in various countries, such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela."
Professor Stephen Hawking: "Of course it is possible that UFO's really do contain aliens as many people believe, and the Government is hushing it up."

Top physicist believes that UFOs are real!(And that they have visited us!)

If you have lived in Omaha, Nebraska long enough and have an interest in UFOs, you are certain to have heard about Dr. John C. Kasher. He is a professor of physics at UNO and has said that he is very much convinced now that earth has been visited by extraterrestrials."However, I am unsure about interdimensional visits-although that could certainly could be part of the picture," he told me several years ago in an interview for the Omaha Metro Update. Dr. Kasher has won numerous awards for his teaching and has also been a consultant and summer employee at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for over 30 years and is considered an academic specialist in electromagnetic theory and the propogation of electromagnetic waves. And he has also done consulting for NASA. Since the early 1970s he has been a consultant for MUFON(Mutual UFO Network).

"I frequently talk to people who have seen spacecraft of lights in the sky or sincerely feel that they have been abducted," he told me .I asked him whether some of these people were unbalanced. He said,"I suppose there is some of that, but not the ones I've dealt with. I have personal friends who have told me about their experiences. I have one friend who appears to have been abducted on several occasions. This is a very intelligent person not at all prone to telling stories. In fact, as a general rule, people with this kind of experience are reluctant to talk about it.

Hundreds of scientists and engineers conduct thorough studies of the unidentified phenomenon. According to Chinese ufologists, aliens live among humans. Ugologists also claim that recently aliens started to show more interest in China. Most recent UFO was spotted in Nanking, China. 

According to a Chinese pilot, he noticed a flickering white and blue object, which hovered right beside the aircraft just as he was about to land. The pilot observed how an oval-shaped flying object was escorting the airplane. Then suddenly, the object made a rapid turn and disappeared behind the clouds. 

This story could sound rather nonsensical. However, other two pilots from other Chinese aircrafts reported the exact same phenomenon to the control center. One of them was piloting at 120 km to the North, while the other was flying at 300km to the South, reports "Izvestia".

The Scottish Sun

GREASE star Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she is fascinated by unidentified flying objects - and has even seen a UFO.

The 60-year-old - whose character Sandy sang Hopelessly Devoted To You in the classic teen movie - also reckons most Brits now believe in alien visitors.

Olivia claimed that she spotted a UFO when she was just 15. She said: "I have seen one when I was very young. It was unidentified and it was flying."

She recalled how the brilliant silver object flew across the sky at "amazingspeeds".

Former Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Believes in UFOs

Honorable Paul Hellyer, a former deputy prime minister of Canada and the longest serving current member of the Queen’s Privy Council, which is made up of “prominent Canadians appointed to advise the queen on issues of importance to the country,” has been an outspoken believer of UFOs.

Speaking to AOL News, he says he is sure other life form exists. “Oh, I’m absolutely convinced of it. These things were not invented here. And I think people have to get accustomed to this new reality,” Hellyer said.  “We lived too long in a sense of isolation, thinking that Earth was the center of the cosmos, that we were the only species and, therefore, probably the most advanced. And when we come to the realization that we’re not any of those things, then I think we should be aware of it, learn to live with it and certainly try to take advantage of anything that we can learn from visitors from anywhere.”
