Astronaut's Alien Encounter?
Fox News reports:
He told NASA about it, but the agency told him that what he was seeing was not an extraterrestrial but a piece of ice.
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. @AstroKomrade and 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👽— Leland Melvin (@Astro_Flow) August 4, 2018
Melvin, who played college football at University of Richmond and was drafted by the Detroit Lions in 1985 prior to becoming an astronaut, continued that he was going to say "Houston, we have a problem," but he did not want to be alarmist.
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🚀— Leland Melvin (@Astro_Flow) August 5, 2018
UFO Sightings Daily asked Melvin if he thought the government space agency was lying and responded by saying: "Hmmm. Don’t think so but you never know. 🚀"
It remains a matter of speculation as to what Melvin, who has degrees in Chemistry and Materials Science Engineering, saw – but a NASA spokesperson succinctly commented that they "have yet to find signs of extraterrestrial life."
