SpaceX boss Elon Musk claims ‘there are UFOs’ in latest Twitter outburst

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.
