“The special event continued to be reported by Cooper, and at times I felt he was seeking some kind of explanation from mission control, but none was forthcoming. They were all puzzled. Then I heard those strange alien sounds from orbit that can only be described as “grunts”, a language I could not identify and other queer noises. It actually sent a chill down my spine. I do know the sounds were definitely not the voice of Gordon Cooper and his downlink was appearing to be working perfectly. As I observed the various mission support crew members, I saw question in their faces.”
