Tom DeLonge’s group says they’ve found “exotic UFO material”

Ex-Blink 182 man Tom DeLonge continues to search for the truth about the Great Alien Cover-up. And he’s certainly been attracting attention.

His research group, the To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences, is doggedly investigating Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, uncovering some interesting and hitherto unknown information, specifically footage of unknown flying objects from the US Navy.

The latest? A claim that the group has somehow acquired “exotic UFO material.” Which means what, exactly? From the New York Times:

In July, the academy announced the ADAM (Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials) Research Project, an academic research program focused on exotic material samples from U.F.O.s. How will the academy conduct research on the materials and what exactly is it looking for?

Mr. [Luis] Elizondo [Tom’s associate]: We’re going to do research employing the scientific method, first and foremost. What we have been doing is trying to find the most qualified individuals at the most respectable institutions to conduct scientific analysis. That scientific analysis includes physical analysis, it includes molecular and chemical analysis and ultimately it includes nuclear analysis.

Has the academy gotten its hands on any materials to review?

Mr. Elizondo: Certainly.

Are you able to share more about that?

Mr. Elizondo: Not at this point. We have to let the process take its course. And what we don’t want to do is be presumptive either way. The last thing we want to do is jump to any conclusions, prematurely. Ultimately, the data is going to decide what something is or what something isn’t.

The materials come from a variety of sources?

Mr. Elizondo: Correct.
