WikiLeaks website, founded by Julian Assange in 2006, has published an e-mail received by John Podesta, the chairman of Mrs Clinton’s presidential campaign, from Edgar D Mitchell, one of the Apollo 14 astronauts and the sixth man to walk on the moon, in August last year.
The e-mail, in which Mr Mitchell and Mr Podesta appear to be on first name terms, reveals the pair were intending to have a conversation via Skype, apparently about the potential for war breaking out in space.
Mr Mitchell warned his acquaintance that ETI (extraterrestrial intelligence) would “not tolerate any forms of military violence on Earth or in space”.
However, despite their apparent intolerance, he described the ETI as nonviolent.
Mr Mitchell, who worked on the Treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space, wrote: “We’re arguably closer than ever to war in space. Most satellites orbiting Earth belong to the US, China and Russia. And recent tests of anti-satellite weapons don’t exactly ease the scare factor.
“It sounds like science fiction, but the potential for real-life star wars is real enough.”
He included links in the e-mail to several online articles on the possibility of war in space pooled from various sources.
Mr Mitchell said Deputy Defense Secretary Robert O Work spoke to Congress about space war last summer and President Barack Obama requested $ 5billion for space defence in the 2016.
He said: “Take a moment to think about everything satellites do. GPS, surveillance and communications all depend on them. And the Scientific American notes you can disable satellites without missiles. Simply spray-painting lenses or breaking antennas is enough.”
This is not the first time Mrs Clinton has been linked to UFOs and extraterrestrials.
She has vowed to open America’s top secret X-Files, containing details about UFOs and military base Area 51 in the Nevada desert if she becomes president in November.
Earlier this year she was a guest on radio show Power 105.1 Breakfast Club in New York where she met host Lenard McKelvey – also known as Charlamagne the God – who believes he has been abducted by aliens several times.
She told Mr McKelvey she would open tyne files unless it posed a threat to national security.
When asked whether she believed in aliens, Mrs Clinton replied: “I don’t know. I want to see what the information shows.
“But there are enough stories out there that I don’t think everybody is just sitting in their kitchen, making them up.
“I think that people see things. What they see, I don’t know. But we have got to try to give people information. I believe in that.”
Mr Mitchell died, aged 85, in a hospice in February this year – on the eve of the 45th anniversary of his lunar landing.
