NASA Astronaut confirms UFO,Aliens and Extraterrestrials

Everyone who follows the space industry knows who Dr. Story Musgrave is. He is very distinguished just from his academic career, holding several advanced degrees, according to Wikipedia.

BS degree in mathematics and statistics from Syracuse University in 1958
MBA degree in operations analysis and computer programming from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1959
BA degree in chemistry from Marietta College in 1960
M.D. in medicine from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1964
MS in physiology and biophysics from the University of Kentucky in 1966
MA in literature from the University of Houston–Clear Lake in 1987

To the public, he is best known as a NASA Space Shuttle astronaut. Wikipedia says that he is "A veteran of six space flights, Musgrave has spent a total of 1281 hours 59 minutes, 22 seconds in space.

Musgrave is the only astronaut to have flown missions on all five Space Shuttles. Prior to John Glenn's return to space in 1998, Musgrave held the record for the oldest person in orbit, at age 62. He retired from NASA in 1997."

He helped design Skylab and systems for the Space Shuttle. By all accounts, he is extraordinarily intelligent and credible. So, what can be made of the following article, which claims that he has seen UFOs, including while aboard the Space Shuttle, 190 miles above the earth? I think there are many questions that need to be answered, to support his apparent extraordinary claims. Until he appears on Larry King or writes a book on the subject, I don't think people will believe that he believes in UFOs, aliens, etc.

NASA Astronaut confirms UFO,Aliens and Extraterrestrials
Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-80 took a crew of five astronauts into a 17 day, 15 hour and 54 minute mission around the earth, the longest flight in the history of this vehicle. During this lengthy flight a very strange event occurred that even had crewman Dr. Story Musgrave unable to explain what he observed from the shuttle windows.

A large disc shaped object appeared below the Columbia. The shuttle was approximately, 190 Nautical miles high.

The disc was first observed to miraculously appear from out of nowhere, flying through the clouds below and progressing from right to left as the astronauts stared in utter amazement. The outer rim of the craft appeared to be rotating counter-clockwise. It was very large (compared to common space junk and breakaway ice), approximately 50 to 150 feet in diameter.

Astronaut Dr. Story Musgrave, a Payload Specialist on the STS-80 Mission, was interviewed following the flight. As he viewed a videotape of the incident which showed lightning flashes in the atmosphere, the city lights of Denver, Colorado and other earthbound sights, he stated: "I don't know what it is. Whether it's a washer, debris, ice particles, I don't know. But it's characteristic of the thousands of things which I've seen. What is not so characteristic is it appears to come from no where. You would think that if it's facing the dark side or facing a side towards you which is not reflecting the sun, you would think that you would see something there. It's really impressive."

During an earlier interview, Dr. Musgrave stated he attempted to communicate with ET life forms during each of his six missions. He actually asked them to take him with them. Now that's an astronaut with a lot of courage. Dr. Musgrave retired after this flight from NASA. Since then he's been spreading his considered opinion that alien life exists. When Musgrave speaks of this, it's no great leap for one to assume he's admitting knowledge of alien life. As the final slide of a "Grey" ET was shown during a recent astronomy presentation by Dr. Musgrave, he made this surprising comment: "These guys are real... I guarantee it!" Dr. Musgrave does know the truth. This author guarantees it!

Consider that carefully. These are world renown scientists making statements almost beyond belief. Dr. von Braun and others of his stature have the courage to disclose "sensitive" information, but obviously the leaders of the USA and the world do not. If billions could find a way of coping with the overwhelming threat of atomic annihilation for half a century, it is reasonable to assume we can cope with the knowledge of these "Other Intelligence's" from the stars. We can cope with the fact they are visiting earth, and have been since the beginning of history. We must. Those still asleep must open their eyes. We Are Not Alone.
