"I'm fascinated by the idea that we think outer space is somehow separate from us when really we're right in the middle of it. I'd absolutely go up into space if I could, I'd love to see the Earth from that perspective. Like, I really believe that the moon landings happened. My great-great-grandfather worked for NASA and he said that it all actually happened. I have a lot of conspiracy theories, but that's not one of them."

What's your favourite conspiracy theory?

"Probably the whole alien thing. I mean, who knows what UFO's are, whether they're from outer space or it's a time warp or they're experimental military craft? I just don't know. A lot of those people who say they've been abducted by aliens are full of shit. And I don't necessarily think that aliens are scary, it just depends whether the lights are on or off. I change my mind in the dark!" -- Sarra Manning in Select magazine (Oct 97)
