Elon Musk opened up about UFOs and aliens on Wednesday, speaking online at the World Government Summit in Dubai.
The unidentified objects shot down by the US military last week were not of alien origin as aliens most likely do not exist, Elon Musk said.
“I don’t think it’s aliens, no. I do find the whole question of the aliens a very interesting one, you know, what is typically called the Fermi paradox, which is that if the universe is really as old as scientists think it is, and where are the aliens?
“If it really has been around for 13.8 billion years, if so, shouldn’t there be aliens all over the place? The crazy thing is that I’ve seen no evidence of alien technology, or alien life whatsoever. And I think I’d know. You know, the SpaceX… I don’t think anyone knows more about space than me or at least about space technology,” he said.
Musk added that the absence of alien life in the universe “is actually a troubling thing.”
“What that actually could mean is that the civilization is like a tiny candle in the vast darkness. And a very vulnerable tiny candle that could easily get blown out.

“And I think we should therefore take great care of what may very well be this tiny candle in the vast darkness, and make sure it does not go out, and that we extend the light of consciousness beyond Earth, and do everything we can to ensure that the light of consciousness does not go out,” he added.
Is Elon Musk an alien?
On Monday, a Twitter user who goes by the name DogeDesigner (@cb_doge), tweeted an edited photo of Musk alongside the model of a Tesla robot and wrote, “What if @elonmusk is an alien & Optimus bots are the alien invasion? 🤣”. The Optimus bot is a general-purpose robotic humanoid that is being developed by Tesla.
In response, Musk tweeted, “Hopefully, one day we will be the aliens visiting other worlds.”

Earlier, Musk had tweeted, “Don’t worry, just some of my 👽🛸friends of mine stopping by …”. It was speculated that this was in response to the USA recently shooting down multiple unidentified objects over the North American airspace.
