As the search for extraterrestrial life seems to be gaining pace, the CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk has broken his silence on what would happen if alien life is found.

He was speaking on 6 May at the Global Conference held by the Milken Institute, California, US.

Sadly, he claims that despite his space-surveillance tech he hasn’t seen anything as yet – but he has a plan in place for if he ever does.

Musk claims that he, and the 6,000 satellites of SpaceX, have never encountered alien-like activity, or had to nudge over for a UFO.

That’s despite recent scientists’ belief that they have made major progress in the search for alien life.

Furthermore, a Cambridge scientist believes an exoplanet has a ’50/50′ chance of alien life.

However, also the owner of X, Musk revealed that he will share the news of alien life on social media (where else) if he ever does find it.

Musk expressed a belief that human space probes may find remains of alien civilizations.

“I have seen no evidence of aliens,” he began.

“If I did, I would 100% post about it on X instantly! SpaceX has almost 6,000 satellites in orbit and not once have we ever had to move around aliens.”

In fact, the billionaire posted something to the same effect last month.

“I have seen no evidence for aliens and, with ~6000 satellites orbiting Earth, I think I would know,” he said, in response to a post about there being ‘conclusive evidence’ of alien life.

He also spoke about his desire for mankind to become a multi-planet civilization, going to places it has never visited before.

Describing humanity as ‘precarious’ and ‘rare’, he did express his belief that human civilization would easily colonize the whole galaxy if it were to last for a further million years.

He even outlined a plan for Mars travel that ‘almost anyone’ can afford.

Considering he accurately predicted the future of the world in an uncovered 1998 interview, we should probably listen to what he has to say.
