Billionaire Aerospace Mogul Robert Bigelow 'Absolutely Convinced' That There Are ET's On Earth

Robert Bigelow, a billionaire aerospace mogul who has deep working ties with NASA, has some shocking thoughts about the existence of extraterrestrial life. Bigelow (founder of Bigelow Aerospace) sat down with 60 Minutes correspondent Lara Logan in an interview that aired on Sunday, and when he was asked about alien life, he didn't hold back.

As Daily Mail reports, Robert Bigelow says has spent "millions and millions and millions of dollars" of his own personal money seeking answers to the extraterrestrial question. While Bigelow didn't specify precisely how many millions, the billionaire made it clear that it was a lot of them. More, he estimated, than any other individual in the history of the United States.

"I spent millions and millions and millions - I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject [aliens]."

"I'm absolutely convinced. That's all there is to it. There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence [on Earth]."

"You don't have to go anywhere. It's just like right under people's noses."

"I don't give a damn. I don't care. It's not gonna make a difference. It's not gonna change the reality of what I know."

While Robert Bigelow has a well-known interest in subjects that many would call "pseudoscience" or paranormal, Bigelow Aerospace is the real deal. Just last May, in partnership with NASA, the privately-owned company sent one of its patented, flexible Bigelow Expandable Activity Modules (Beam) to be expanded on the International Space Station, effectively creating an additional room on the ISS.

Ironically, while Robert Bigelow is working directly with NASA, he and the space agency have very different publicly stated opinions when it comes to the existence of extraterrestrials. According to Bigelow, he is "absolutely convinced" that aliens exist and are even living here on Earth. NASA, on the other hand, denies having any evidence of the existence of ETs.
