L.E. Baskow Robert Bigelow, revealed speaking throughout Bigelow Aerospace’s intro of its Bigelow Expandable Activity Module in 2015, informed “60 Minutes” on Might 28, 2017, that he thinks there is an extraterrestrial existence on Earth.
Eyebrow-raising statements by billionaire aerospace magnate Robert Bigelow on “60 Minutes” on May 28 might “make financiers anxious,” an aerospace analyst stated.
” There has actually been and is an existing existence, an ET existence,” Bigelow stated. “I spent millions and millions– I probably invested more as an individual than any person else in the United States has actually ever spent on this subject.”
When asked if it was risky for him to express such views publicly, Bigelow responded, “I do not provide a damn. I do not care. I do not care. It’s not going to make a difference. It’s not gon na alter reality, of exactly what I know.”
Bigelow owns North Las Vegas-based Bigelow Aerospace, which has a partnership with NASA to create an expandable space environment set up to be sent to the International Space Station. Bigelow Aerospace got an $18 million agreement from NASA for the project.
With Bigelow revealing views that some may find improbable, a set of industry experts had various views on how it may affect future federal government contracts.
“When you express severe views for which there is no real scientific proof, it has the tendency to make financiers uneasy,” said Loren B. Thompson, aerospace analyst at the Lexington Institute.
Thompson doesn’t completely disagree with Bigelow’s views, however he draws the line at the possibility of extraterrestrial life on Earth.
“There is really high likelihood that intelligent aliens exist outside of our planetary system, however there is virtually no possibility that there are any inside of our planetary system,” he said. “There’s a 100 billion stars in the Galaxy galaxy and there’s a 100 billion galaxies, so it would genuinely be remarkable if there were not aliens on other planets somewhere else in deep space.”
Richard Aboulafia, an analyst at Teal Group, said he thinks the claim is unwarranted due to the fact that of the absence of clinical proof, however that it’s not that huge of a deal.
“I do not think there’s a system for the government to not give them work,” Aboulafia stated. “If they bid for agreements, or if there’s technology-development opportunities, I can’t envision this having an effect.”
Bigelow’s views might be thought about controversial, but not objectionable, Aboulafia said.
“This is a reasonably inoffensive view, which may not be supported with any accurate basis whatsoever, however it’s not like it stinks,” he stated.
A spokesman stated the business has no talk about Bigelow’s appearance on “60 Minutes.”
