Nowadays, Angels & Airwaves frontman and Blink-182 founder Tom DeLonge‘s interests and involvement with space and extraterrestrials is pretty common knowledge. He even won the Researcher Of The Year Award from the International UFO Congress earlier this year. Now, he’s taken his involvement into this side of his life even further.
DeLonge has now set up and acts as both the President and CEO of the To The Stars Academy Of Arts & Science; an organisation that’s comprised of scientists, aerospace engineers, and other creatives who will collaborate and enable researchers to explore the “outer edges of science” and technologies.
The To The Stars Academy Of Arts & Science will encompass three divisions: Science, Aerospace, and Entertainment, and its team has an impressive resume. According to a statement, several of its team members have worked extensively within the intelligence and scientific fields, including some who have worked in and with the CIA and the Department Of Defense.
“The public interest in the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint”, DeLonge says. “We believe there are discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience, but they can only be accomplished through the unrestricted support of breakthrough research and innovation.”
By claiming the title of “public benefit corporation”, the TTSA are promising to serve the public good and, in response, are currently asking the public to invest in the academy and its work, which you can do via its official website (here).
