ALIENS HAVE VISITED EARTH-SPACE INDUSTRY CEO ROBERT BIGELOW
On Sunday, Robert Bigelow — real estate mogul and founder of the space habitat company Bigelow Aerospace — did an interview with 60 Minutes, in which he touted the strengths of the commercial space industry and how private companies would pave the way for people to live in space.
While the founder of Bigelow Aerospace is betting that humans will take leave of Earth, he also seems convinced that aliens are coming this way. He said that “there has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence.”
Lara Logan: Do you believe in aliens?
Robert Bigelow: I’m absolutely convinced. That’s all there is to it.
Lara Logan: Do you also believe that UFOs have come to Earth?
Robert Bigelow: There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions — I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.
Bigelow noted during the interview May 28 that his grandparents spotted a UFO on a canyon road outside Las Vegas: “It really sped up and came right into their face and filled up the entire windshield of the car. And it took off at a right angle and shot off into the distance,” he told “60 Minutes” reporter Lara Logan.
When asked if he expects to see forms of intelligent life as humans explore the universe, Bigelow replied, “You don’t have to go anywhere. … It’s just, like, right under people’s noses.”
Bigelow told 60 Minutes that he’s also had “close encounters” but wouldn’t divulge any specifics.
dmitting you believe in aliens is one thing, but Bigelow seems to be no less than a true Believer. He told 60 Minutes that he’s also had “close encounters” but wouldn’t divulge any specifics.
And apparently, Bigelow owns a company that has been getting referrals from the FAA about reports of UFOs and other weird activity, 60 Minutes confirmed. In fact, his fascination with aliens is the reason there’s an alien illustration on the side of Bigelow Aerospace’s headquarters in Las Vegas.
Skeptical? That’s fine. He doesn’t care about the haters.
Lara Logan: Is it risky for you to say in public that you believe in UFOs and aliens?
Robert Bigelow: I don’t give a damn. I don’t care.
Lara Logan: You don’t worry that some people will say, “Did you hear that guy, he sounds like he’s crazy”?
Robert Bigelow: I don’t care.
Lara Logan: Why not?
Robert Bigelow: It’s not gonna make a difference. It’s not gonna change reality of what I know.
Lara Logan: Do you imagine that in our space travels we will encounter other forms of intelligent life?
Robert Bigelow: You don’t have to go anywhere.
Lara Logan: You can find it here? Where exactly?
Robert Bigelow: It’s just like right under people’s noses. Oh my gosh. Wow.
To be fair, if aliens are already living here, I guess it doesn’t really matter if you believe in them or not. They seem to be blending in just fine. Also, Bigelow’s belief doesn’t seem to have detracted much from his success
