A former Israeli space security chief has sent eyebrows shooting heavenward with his weird statements.
Haim Eshed said aliens are real and that US President Donald Trump is aware about it.
The ex-space boss said: “There is an existence of ‘Galactic Federation’ and Israel and the US have been dealing with aliens for years.”
He added: “The cooperation includes a secret underground base on Mars, where there are American and alien representatives.”
The Israeli spoke extensively about extra-terrestrial life claiming there’s an “agreement” between the US government and the aliens as they wish to research and understand the fabric of the universe.
The 87-year-old even said Trump was “on the verge” of informing everyone about their existence but was stopped by the “Galactic Federation”.
Eshed is the former head of Israel’s defence ministry’s space directorate. In an interview with Israel’s Yediot Aharonot newspaper, he gave descriptions about exactly what sort of agreements have been made between the aliens and the US.
He has made similar claims in his book: The Universe Beyond the Horizon – conversations with Professor Haim Eshed.
While there has been no reaction from the US government or Trump on the development, social media has been flooded ever since the interview was published earlier this week.
So far, US space agency NASA has not completely dismissed the possibility of life beyond earth.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has already announced his mission “Mars and beyond”, outlining his vision on how he hopes to land a rocket on Mars by 2022. He also said he’ll send a million people to Mars by 2050.
