Ex-blink-182 Man Wants to be the Next Elon Musk. Seriously.

Tom DeLonge has been keeping very busy since leaving blink-182. When not making music with his band Angels & Airwaves, he’s busy co-writing novels and non-fiction books on the vast government conspiracy to keep the existence of aliens secret. (See both halves of the Sekret Machines collection, among others; there are fifteen books planned.) This is an outgrowth from his UFO research (he was named UFO Researcher of the Year). And now he wants to become the next Elon Musk

At a press conference this week (October 11), Tom outlined the creation of his new space research company, To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science. Members include scientists, researchers, former members of the CIA, former members of the Defense Department and other like-minded individuals. The goal, says Tom, is to bring more space research and development into the public sphere and away from the control and bureaucracy of governments. It’s not quite Elon Musk’s Space-X yet, but who knows?

Let’s go to the video.

Tom is extremely serious about space, aliens and the truth. Laugh at his X-Files ambitions all you want, but wouldn’t it be cool if a punk rocker proved the existence of extraterrestrial life? You go, Tom.
