Rest in Peace Edgar Mitchell, Paranormal Hero

Edgar Mitchell 1930-2016
     This week marks the passing of a pioneer of the paranormal, astronaut Edgar Mitchell.  Unlike most astronauts who retreat into obscurity, Edgar Mitchell never stopped pushing the boundaries of science and human understanding during his later years.   In 1971, Mitchell became the sixth man to walk on the moon.  Six others followed him before the Apollo missions ended, making Mitchell one of twelve human to set foot on an extraterrestrial world.  
     By his own description, Mitchell had a profoundly life-changing experience on his way back from the moon. “What I experienced during that three-day trip home was nothing short of an overwhelming sense of universal connectedness. I actually felt what has been described as an ecstasy of unity,” he said.  Mitchell kept his head down for a while, but eventually he went public with the assertion that the United States government has a great deal of information on extraterrestrials that they were not sharing.  He was very vocal about the need for greater disclosure, but his interest in the paranormal did not stop with his pleas for greater government disclosure.
