Leland Melvin is an ex-NASA astronaut in the Atlantis missions. Recently he made some buzz on Twitter after posting a reply on the UFO Sightings Daily who asked him about his opinion on alien life and if he witnessed a UFO while in space. Accordingly, Melvin said he saw an organic alien-like being floating in space, just outside his Atlantis shuttle.
“I have not seen one in space or on the ground but thought I saw something organic/alien-like floating out of the payload bay. I called the ground to ask what it could be and it was ice that had broken off of the Freon hoses. Translucent, curved, organic looking,” said Leland Melvin, a former NASA astronaut, on Twitter.
Melvin was a college football player at the University of Richmond but chose an astronaut career as he had degrees in both Chemistry and Materials Science Engineering.
Could that organic alien-like being floating in space that Leland Melvin saw be an extraterrestrial life form?
“I was about to say Houston we have a problem but know everyone spins-up when those words are uttered from a space vehicle. Godspeed!” added the ex-NASA astronaut Leland Melvin for FOX News.
As reported by FOX News, NASA scientists told the astronaut that what he was witnessing was nothing else than a piece of ice that split up from the Freon hoses and was floating freely in the space near the Atlantis shuttle Leland Melvin was aboard.
No one can know for sure what the ex-astronaut saw, but some of the social media followers of the discussion between Leland Melvin and UFO Sightings Daily on Twitter strongly believe that the sighting represented indeed an alien-like creature that floated near the Atlantis shuttle.
However, to find out more about this story, FOX News approached NASA for details, but they did not receive any answer yet.
