Space Case: The Lead Singer Of Blink-182 Started A Company That Studies UFOs

In 2017, the lead singer of Blink-182, Tom DeLonge, co-founded a space-related public benefit corporation with a 25-year veteran in the CIA, Jim Semivan. Called To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA), the company aims to foster a greater understanding of science in society by bringing certain issues out of the fringes and into the mainstream, specifically through the study of the technological implications of scientific phenomena like UFOs.

TTSA believes the time is right to spread the word about “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,” particularly in the continuing aftermath of a December, 2017 article in the New York Times about the Pentagon’s secret Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (“AATIP”), a shadowy UFO program run by a former military intelligence official.

To further its mission, TTSA has three specific divisions spanning the worlds of entertainment, science, and aerospace. The entertainment component includes a six-part docuseries on A+E’s History Channel called Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation, which is based on the aforementioned New York Times article.

Then there’s the science division, a type of think tank that oversees a number of scientific projects involving quantum communication technology, the A.D.A.M. (Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials) Research Project, and THE VAULT, a “public-facing database for Unidentified Aerial Phenomena events.”

TTSA’s third branch is the aerospace division, which seeks to find “revolutionary breakthroughs in propulsion, energy, and communication” by liaising with Department of Defense and aerospace engineers “to pursue an advanced engineering approach to fundamental aerospace topics like Beamed-Energy Propulsion Launch Systems (‘BELS’), Space-Time Metrics Engineering (‘STME’), and warp-drive metrics.”

As TTSA explains in a recent news release, “There have been many defining moments in history. […] At To The Stars Academy, we believe one of those electrifying moments is the recent statement by the U.S. Navy that footage captured onboard their elite fighter-jets was deemed ‘unidentified aerial phenomena.’ Whether you prefer the academic inference of the term ‘UAP’ or the legacy of the struggle for truth in the designation of ‘UFO,’ we can all take a moment to consider the weight of this statement.”

Obstacles to Exploring Outer Space

Despite its noble ambitions, TTSA still faces a few obstacles: namely, funding and the public perception of UFOs. Still, the emerging organization is aiming to overcome these barriers. “We have been working tirelessly with multiple offices within Washington, D.C. to move the subject of UAPs beyond stigma, past curiosity, through acceptance and into a determined examination,” they explain. “Confirmation of our successes can be seen in the paradigm-shift of mainstream media reporting and in the verification that government leaders are openly engaged and demanding answers.”
