Strap in, this one’s a bit…odd. Over the weekend, a report from the New York Times shed light on a previously secret research project put on by the Pentagon from 2007 – 2012. Called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Project, it was run by a man named Luis Elizondo, who stepped down from his position in October. Elizondo now works for To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, founded by former Blink-182 guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge (who was not a part of their 2016 album California).

According to Times, the Pentagon confirmed the existence of the program, but ceased funding it in 2012. Elizondo, however, kept working on it until his departure this past fall.

Here’s where things get really wild. Read this, from the NYT piece:

Mr. Elizondo has now joined Mr. Puthoff and another former Defense Department official, Christopher K. Mellon, who was a deputy assistant secretary of defense for intelligence, in a new commercial venture called To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science. They are speaking publicly about their efforts as their venture aims to raise money for research into U.F.O.s.

To the Stars uploaded a video featured in the NYT story of a purportedly unidentified aircraft traveling at a high rate of speed, and in the clip some Navy pilots are audibly heard expressing their shock and confusion about the alleged U.F.O. Take a look for yourself:

DeLonge spoke with the New York Daily News, offering a bit of insight into To the Stars:

“What we’re trying to do is make sure the story of the millennia and the technology of the millennia are owned by the people from day one,” Delonge said. “Part of our strategy has always been to throw it all out in the open so people can’t come and try to shut it down from some weird office at NATO or the United Nations or the United States or whatever.”

Longtime fans of Blink-182 should find DeLonge’s intense interest in this unsurprising, considering he’s always been a firm believer in the existence of extraterrestrial life:

This is definitely a rather intriguing and provocative development for DeLonge, who’s been working steadfastly in this direction since Blink-182 moved on withou
