Blink-182's Tom DeLonge Searches for the Truth! Out There...

Fan's of Blink-182 may already know about Tom DeLonge's deep fascination with UFOs and the possibility of extra-terrestrial life. Well, now he is taking his hobby to a whole new level! Yesterday (Oct. 11) he went live on Twitter to announce the formation of an institute dedicated to the "outer edges of science and understanding of [unusual] phenomena", called To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science.

The academy's mission statement, as stated on their website:

The public interest in the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint.

We believe there are transformative discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience, but they can only be accomplished through the unrestricted support of breakthrough research, discovery and innovation.

To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science has mobilized a team of the most experienced, connected and passionately curious minds from the US intelligence community, including the CIA and Department of Defense, that have been operating under the shadows of top-secrecy for decades.

The team members all share a common thread of frustration and determination to disrupt the status quo, wanting to use their expertise and credibility to bring transformative science and engineering out of the shadows and collaborate with global citizens to apply that knowledge in a way that benefits humanity.

Without the restrictions of government priorities.

Listen, Tom...buddy, I miss The X-Files, too. The show's coming back next year, it's okay...
