Tom DeLonge just might actually discover aliens. In recent years, the former frontman of Blink-182 has faced plenty of skepticism regarding the legitimacy of his UFO-seeking organization To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, but after being co-signed by the U.S. Navy last month, the U.S. Army is officially down to clown. According to a new Vice report, DeLonge's academy just signed a contract with the army that will allocate at least $750,000 of government funding to TTSA's research efforts.
More specifically, the government is invested in "assessments, testing, and characterization" in TTSA's findings regarding "inertial mass reduction, mechanical/structural meta materials, electromagnetic meta material wave guides, quantum physics, quantum communications, and beamed energy propulsion." In a press statement, Dr. Joseph Cannon (Deputy Product Manager of Science and Technology in the Vehicle Protection Systems Division of the GVSC) described the partnership as "an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities."
The cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) between TTSA and the Army will last five years. Read the entire story about how DeLonge went from pop punk frontman to leading the charge in the UFO discovery movement here.
