NASA astronaut claimed he saw something ‘alien-like’ while in space

Former NASA astronaut Leland Melvin said he saw something strange in space.

Melvin’s revelation is adding more fuel to the fire we ignited when we began exploring space as humans.

Everyone wants to know whether’s there life out there and Leland Melvin says it’s possible – because he says he saw it.

There’s a famous blog titled ‘UFO Sightings Daily’ that’s run by Scott Waring.

Waring is constantly looking for proof of alien life and so he asked Melvin whether he’d ever seen anything out there.

Amazingly, Melvin actually said yes.

Melvin is a seasoned astronaut, having spent over 565 hours in space.

While this may pale in comparison to Frank Rubio’s experience, it’s still nothing to sneeze at.

Melvin said he didn’t really see something he’d call an UFO, but he said he did see something unusual.

“I thought I saw something organic/alien like floating out of the payload bay,” Melvin said.

Melvin described the alien being as translucent and curved, and organic, which is the key component of his statement.

Now that the Space Race is back in full swing, with new and old superpowers trying to reach space, the question will no doubt re-emerge.

For now, efforts are being focused on the moon, which was recently visited by India, and Mars.

We still haven’t found definitive proof of life on Mars, but maybe that’ll change.
