Item Number: 5226
Original Mercury 7 Astronaut. Souvenir Typescript Signed, 1 page of questions relating to UFO's asked to Cooper during an interview in March 1980. In part:
Omni: "What about the repeated allegations that the astronauts saw many UFOs?"
Cooper: "It got so bad that there were deliberately falsified tapes of communications with the astronauts, where UFO material was simply edited in..."
Omni: "Didn't you go after some UFOs as an air force pilot in Germany in the 1950s?"
Cooper: "Yes, several days in a row we sighted groups of metallic, saucer-shaped vehicles at great altitudes over the base, and we tried to get close to them..I do believe UFOs exists and that the truly unexplained ones are from some other technologically advanced civilization..I'm sure some of the UFOs at least are not from anywhere on Earth." Signed at bottom of page "Gordon Cooper" in black ink. In excellent condition.
