During the first three hours, astronaut, scientist, and author Dr. Edgar Mitchell discussed his experiences being part of the Apollo 14 mission, his views on ET visitation, and his research into the nature of consciousness. During the 1971 mission, Mitchell and his fellow astronauts spent 34 hours on the moon- with 10 of those hours, walking on the moon's surface. During the flight, he said they heard "ping" sounds, coming from micrometeorites hitting the craft.
While Mitchell said he found no signs of bases or artificial structures on the moon, he does believe there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that ETs have visited the Earth. He doesn't have first hand knowledge, but has heard accounts from multiple high-level sources, such as Wernher von Braun, regarding ET contacts and UFOs. Quite a few of the astronauts saw or chased UFOs in their careers as military pilots before they joined NASA, he added.
Mitchell, who founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences to sponsor research into the nature of consciousness, discussed the "dyadic" model he developed, which uses energy and information as fundamental concepts in understanding consciousness. Paranormalist Uri Geller joined the conversation for a segment. He recounted the time that he and Mitchell were involved in experimental studies at SRI, and without notice three pieces from Mitchell's jewelry box (which had been lost years earlier), teleported into the room over a number of hours.
The last hour of the show featured Open Lines and a brief appearance from Richard C. Hoagland.
