Passed lie detector test. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin has allegedly passed a lie doctor test after recounting his apparent experience with alien life, according to The Daily Star. It is said that the reported event took place during Apollo 11, the historic 1969 space mission that landed the first two humans on the Moon.
Apollo 11. On July 20, 1919, mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the lunar module Eagle on the Moon. Six hours after landing, Armstrong became the first human to ever step onto the lunar surface; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. It was a revolutionary event, to say the least.
Apollo 11. Both Armstrong and Aldrin spent around two and a quarter hours together on the lunar surface. During this time, the duo collected 47.5 pounds of lunar material to bring back to Earth to study.
Apollo 11. While Armstrong and Aldrin remained on the Moon’s surface, Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit. After spending just under a day on the lunar surface, both Armstrong and Aldrin rejoined Collins on Columbia in lunar orbit. All returned safely to Earth.
Interviews. Aldrin, who’s now 88, has now allegedly taken part in a test that analyzed interviews from a slew of astronauts, including Al Worden, Edgar Mitchell, and Gordon Cooper. For years, Aldrin and many of his colleagues have insisted that they’ve spotted aliens during their otherworldly trips.
”Completely convinced.” So, what’d the test entail of? Interviews— recorded ones, at that. “Recorded interviews of the astronauts were tested using the latest technology at the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology in Albany, Ohio,” according to The Daily Mail. After looking at their data, experts alleged that the astronauts were “completely convinced” that their claims of extraterrestrial life were true, The Daily Star reports.
Something out there. “There was something out there that was close enough to be observed, sort of L-shaped,” Aldrin recalled in his apparent interview, according to The Daily Star. Safe to say, the astronaut’s claim has always been met with apprehension. But now, scientists have allegedly looked into the matter.
Research. For their research, the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology conducted an analysis of Aldrin’s voice patterns as he opened up about their his encounter with a UFO. Speaking to The Daily Star, BioAccoustic’s Sharry Edwards revealed that their tests show Aldrin is 100% sure he saw the alien, even though his mind “cannot explain it.”
Other claims. That said, Aldrin isn’t the one to claim he’s seen a UFO. In 2017, Apollo 15 pilot Al Wooden, who’s now in his late 80s, told Good Morning Britain that he, too, saw aliens during his mission. In addition, astronauts Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper, who are both deceased, have also made claims of extraterrestrials they’ve encountered.
Other claims. In a 2009 interview, Mitchell alleged he saw multiple UFOs during the Apollo 14 mission he was a part of. Before then, Cooper had previously recounted trying to chase a cluster of objects during one of his trips into the great beyond.
Technology. In the end, the research revealed that both Cooper and Mitchell, like Aldrin, truly believed what they were saying, The Daily Star reports. Though the scientists being the test have remained quiet about the technology, it is being claimed that the tests “are more reliable than current lie detector tests,” according to The Daily Mail.
Clarification. Still, facts regarding the test remain unclear. In fact, some claim the entire experiment is simply not true. When Pedestrian reached out to Aldrin’s representatives for clarification regarding the matter, they said: “This is bogus and we don’t know where it came from.”
The recording. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s not clear which recording of Aldrin was used for the test. In the past, the astronaut has opened up about a mysterious sighting he experienced while on the Apollo 11 mission, but overall, he’s only referred to it as a weird light in space, not evidence of aliens.
Life elsewhere in the universe. That said, Aldrin does think there is a very good chance that life exists outside in space— maybe even in the Milky Way. In fact, in a Reddit AMA, he explained that life may simply be “hundreds of light-years away.”
Lunar ambassador. In that same Reddit AMA, Aldrin noted that he would like to one day be considered a “lunar ambassador.” He wrote: “I am hoping to be designated a lunar ambassador along with all the 24 living or deceased crews who have reached the moon. In the meantime, I like to be known as a global space statesman.”
