Bigelow Aerospace CEO convinced of aliens on Earth

Billionaire and influential NASA partner Robert Bigelow believes that beings from outer space have indeed visited the Blue Planet. Does the Bigelow Aerospace CEO know something we don’t?

The space industry is blasting off to increasing fame as the super-rich and wealthy aim to explore its inky depths.

Furthermore, celebrity entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson continue to compete for zero gravity. As such, each has set a course to the stars in a bid to colonise, or commercialise our solar system.

While they look up to propel humans into extraterrestrial status, Bigelow Aerospace CEO Robert Bigelow looks around him for ETs.

The owner and founder of the space habitat organisation has no doubt in his mind that aliens visit earth.

As such, Bigelow has invested astronomical amounts of his own money into exploring the existence of little green beings.

“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 Aerospace CEO believes Aliens are among us

However, for Bigelow the existence of aliens is more than just a theory.

The real estate mogul and space enthusiast is a firm believer in the actual existence of ETs on earth.

Furthermore, it seems as if this conviction is a family trait, one that Bigelow inherited from his grandparents’ own alleged experience of a UFO sighting.

“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.”

Yet, Bigelow is staunchly unaffected by any potential harm to his public image that his controversial belief may render.

Additionally, he’s responded to reporters by saying, “I don’t give a damn. I don’t care,” on potentially appearing mentally unstable due to his unconventional stance.

Rather, he’s dedicated to creating inhabitable space stations with NASA, the first of which was launched in 2016.

These habitats are inflatable living spaces. Four metres long, BEAM is the module currently in operation. Bigelow’s engineers have attached it to the International Space Station.

Perhaps Bigelow’s efforts are to get away from, rather than contact alien life.
