Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge is raising money to build a spaceship that, in a search for alien life, will “travel instantaneously through space, air and water by engineering the fabric of space-time.”

He made that announcement recently on Facebook as he launched an organization called the To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science and asked for public help to get the group going on its “electromagnetic” spaceship. The musician has spent the last few years researching the existence of UFOs and said this new effort could “revolutionize the world with technology that can change life as we know it.”

Some experts have signed on to his initiative.

“What if I told you I found a group of like-minded people who held senior positions in the U.S. government, from the CIA to the Department of Defense to the most advanced aerospace engineering groups within our national security establishment?” DeLonge said in a video on the To the Stars Academy website. He added that the group is working on “an unparalleled search for answers that could propel humanity forward.”

Although the announcement suggested the organization would do research in areas like genetics, consciousness and “brain-computer interfaces,” the spaceship has attracted attention. The group says it is more than just fantasy.

“The truth of the matter is … that something like warp drive is not out of the question,” Hal Putoff, chief scientist and a founder of the To the Stars Academy, said in the video. He is an engineer and physicist who has shown interest in paranormal events, including co-authoring a book on psychic abilities.

The goal of To the Stars is to fund research into understanding phenomena that we have not previously been able to explain and to develop and build technology that will explore those things.

Among the supporters working with DeLonge is Luis Elizondo, who says he was involved in understanding advanced aerospace threats for the U.S. Department of Defense.

“In the last 10 years we’ve come a long way in our understanding of our place here in this universe,” Elizondo said. “There are physics that we don’t quite yet understand. Doesn’t mean they’re not real. It just simply means that we don’t have the capacity yet to understand those physics.”

The Huffington Post has reported that Elizondo just recently left his position at the Department of Defense and has since stated that UFOs are real and have been documented by the government.

As Consequence of Sound points out, launching To the Stars Academy is just the latest move for DeLonge: The musician has published a book on UFOs called “Sekret Machines: Gods” and was named a UFO Researcher of the Year.

His crowdfunding campaign has already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.
