Back in 2017, the New York Times ran an article about a top-secret UFO program at the Pentagon. The article revealed that aerospace billionaire Robert Bigelow had modified buildings to house “metal alloys and other materials…that [allegedly] had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena.”

Now, DeLonge’s organization has released a statement claiming they have acquired some “potentially exotic materials featuring properties not from any known existing military or commercial application.”

These materials are “reported to have come from an advanced aerospace vehicle of unknown origin.”

It is unclear if it’s the same metamaterials mentioned in the now-shuttered Pentagon program.

“The structure and composition of these materials are not from any known existing military or commercial application,” Steve Justice, To The Stars Academy’s COO and former head of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works said in a statement.

“They’ve been collected from sources with varying levels of chain-of-custody documentation. So, we are focusing on verifiable facts and working to develop independent scientific proof of the materials’ properties and attributes. In some cases, the manufacturing technology required to fabricate the material is only now becoming available.”

More on Tom Delonge

Back in May, we learned DeLonge would be the executive producer of a new show on History called Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation and ahead of the show’s release, he penned an op-ed about his alien knowledge.

He reveals the moment he started believing UFOs were real and not just science fiction came on a blink-182 tour. DeLonge was reading Timothy Good’s Above Top Secret, discovering a historical chronology of UFO events.

“It wasn’t just a solitary event, but a chain of occurrences,” says DeLonge. “But I had no idea these crafts were real and in fact interacting with nuclear missiles, NASA missions and facilities, astronauts, and even civilians,” says DeLonge.

The article details his experience researching UFOs and how it developed from “unreliable characters” to working with top U.S. military members.

He says working with top intelligence officials led to creating To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, his organization exploring scientific phenomena.
