"To the best of my knowledge... there is no direct evidence [of] alien life [on earth]," Elon Musk recently said in a new interview with Joe Rogan. Rogan was hoping Musk would know (or at least hint at) the existence of these cosmo beings but Elon only responded by shaking his head, saying "no".
"Somebody's gotta at least have an iPhone 1 level camera," he added. This rings true considering all the UFO footage that the Pentagon released last year and CIA's UFO files which were released recently. The Pentagon's grainy black and white footage revealed a hovering figure. Although the unidentified flying object was evident in the footage, it's still unclear if it was the work of an extraterrestrial being.
As the CEO and founder of SpaceX, the first private company to launch a spacecraft to reach the space station and send humans to space, Musk would most probably know if aliens do exist. He has mastered multiple fields namely rocket science, engineering, transportation and aerospace. Apart from SpaceX, Elon is also the CEO of Tesla Motors and The Boring Company. He is also the co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI. Currently, Elon's prowess and success have earned him the title "Richest Man in the World".
CONTRASTING INTELLIGENT LIFE STUDIES
One would think that the copious amount of alien studies, footage, and documents that we have would finally answer the questions we have been asking for years. But these discoveries are only revealing contrasting finds made by scientists and astronomers alike.
In 1979, American mathematical physicist Frank J. Tipler strongly insists that aliens do not exist and that humans are the only intelligent species to exist in the galaxy.
The Drake Equation which Frank Drake started in 1961 is an argument used to estimate the number of alien civilisations in the milky way galaxy. It helped Drake estimate 10 planets in the milky way. Since then, various scientists have used the Drake Equation in an attempt to make the best guesses. It helped Tom Westby and Christopher J. Conselice in their new study. They claim that alien life is existent but rare—only 36 alien societies reside within the milky way.
Recently, Harvard postdoctoral researcher Shmuel Bialy and astronomer Avi Loeb believe to have found proof of alien life through the existence of the Oumuamua. In a study, they mentioned that it could be an active solar sail made by an extraterrestrial.
