Britain’s most famous astronaut has raised the possibility that US military pilots have captured machines from other civilisations on video more than 100 times.
And Col Tim Peake, who spent more than six months on board the International Space Station, also said the UFOs being filmed by US Navy pilots could be evidence that future generations have developed time travel and are returning back from the future.
The British astronaut appeared on Good Morning Britain and was asked about the recent release of details of more than 100 encounters between military pilots in the US and unidentified flying objects.
The US military are calling the UAPs – or Unexplained Aerial Phenomena – and the videos of pilots filming the machines making incredible manoeuvres at impossible speeds have so concerned the US military and Government that a special hearing has been held in Congress to discuss the videos.
Asked about what the things could be, Col Tim Peake said he didn’t know – but he had heard various theories.
“I think it’s interesting that the US Government has made this public, the report is out that there have been over 100 incidents calling them ‘Unexplained Aerial Phenomena’ or UAP,” he said. “There’s been a hearing in Congress – of course there weren’t many answers to the questions because that’s the whole point of the phenomena – it’s still very much unexplained. But I think it’s a good thing there are discussions being had, and that this information is being made available,” he added.
Col Peake said he did not think whatever the flying craft captured on the videos were made by humans on Earth today – we simply don’t have the technology. “I don’t think it’s a development of any state nation, or non-state organisation at all. I think when you see the video footage, it’s quite remarkable. It does seem extraordinary as to what these machines are capable of.
“There is no explanation for it, there are several theories about could it be something that has been developed in a classified programme, but then why would this information be being made public, if that were the case.
“Is it some sort of uncrewed robotic type object from another civilisation? I heard one theory where a pilot was talking about that potentially in the future they’ve developed time travel – is it something that’s come back from the future?
“So there are all these theories going around about what they could be, but ultimately we do not know,” he added.
