The billionaire founder of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk has claimed that "there are UFOs" in his latest Twitter outburst.
Responding to a Tesla owner's video test of the car's 'full self-driving' functionality, Elon Musk explained that his cars can avoid any obstacles from up above – even UFOs.
"In principle, even if a UFO crashed on the road right in front of you, it would still avoid the debris," Musk wrote.
He continued: "I'm not saying there are UFOs… but there are UFOs."
Musk's comments sparked a frenzy on Twitter, with many people using it as an opportunity to share UFO memes and quiz Musk on his previous claims about being an alien extraterrestrial.
One user, Feni_Sam, said "Does anyone else feel like they could just talk to Elon about some of his tweets. Sometimes I feel like his tweets just create way more questions than I have answers for."
Other users saw Musk's comments as confirmation of what they already suspected: that the truth is out there.
One said: "Yes, there are [UFOs]. Saw some in 1993. About 15 to 20 of them. We aren't alone.
"No one can convince me other wise because I've known since I was 4 and you don't forget things like I've experienced. You do get shunned but whatever."
Earlier this year, Musk sent fans into a meltdown by claiming he is an alien. In a video, Musk said that the existence of aliens "is one of the great questions in physics and philosophy".

When asked on Twitter if he himself is an alien, Musk then wrote: "Of course". However, he later said that there are "no signs" of other life.
Musk's self-described greatest ambition is to "make life multiplanetary", and has previously vowed to sell off all of his possessions and houses in order to found a Mars colony with his company SpaceX by 2050.
He could get humans there sooner than that, however. Later today, the first all-civilian spaceflight will be taking place on a SpaceX rocket – you can watch it live at 20:45PM on SpaceX's YouTube.
