Elon Musk is a famous American entrepreneur who never ceases to amaze the world with his innovative ideas and projects. He is also known for his out-of-the-box statements, which are of great interest to the public.
He recently shared his opinion about the possible existence of alien civilizations. In an interview with Fox News, he said that he did not believe in their existence, but at the same time he recalled a story he heard of a general from the 1960s who was trying to get the U.S. defense budget expanded and came up with the idea that if an alien ever was found, they should make the news immediately public.
“You know what would really get no arguments from anyone? If we pulled out an alien and said, ‘We need money to protect ourselves from these guys.’ You know, ‘How much money do you want? You got it. They look dangerous,’” the Twitter CEO jokingly explained. “So the fastest way to get a defense budget increase would be to pull out an alien.”
Musk emphasized that if there was evidence of the existence of alien civilizations, he would immediately tweet about it. He also added that he is an expert in the field of space and would definitely know about aliens if they really existed.
“A lot of people ask me, you know, where are the aliens? And I think if anyone would know about aliens on Earth it would probably be me,” Musk said in a sit-down interview Tuesday with “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Yeah, I’m, you know, very familiar with space stuff. And I’ve seen no evidence of aliens. So I wish — I would immediately tweet, you know, tweet it out. That’d be liked all time — probably the top tweet of all time. We found one, guys!” he replied.
Musk added that to the best of his knowledge, there has been no evidence of “conscious” life in space, but suggested that if there were, he would like them to be “peaceful.”
