Elon Musk says he’s found no sign of aliens on earth.

The SpaceX founder might be looking to land on Mars soon, but that doesn’t mean he’s spotted extraterrestrial activity.

Musk spoke at the 74th International Astronautical Congress, where he discussed his theory on aliens.

"People often ask me if I'm seeing any evidence of aliens — and I unfortunately have seen no evidence of aliens yet," Musk said, as per Business Insider.

He joked: "We are the aliens."

Yes, Ha-ha. I’m still looking for the little zip so he can shed his human skin.

Earlier this year, during an interview with Tucker Carlson on Tucker Carlson Tonight, the Tesla CEO said he hadn’t seen any evidence of life in outer space.

“A lot of people ask me, you know, where are the aliens? And I think if anyone would know about aliens on Earth it would probably be me,” he told Carlson.

He added: “I’m, you know, very familiar with space stuff. And I’ve seen no evidence of aliens."

The billionaire said that someone would hit the ‘jackpot’ if they ever found an alien, adding it would be a way to immediately increase the US defense budget over fears of an invasion.

“So the fastest way to get a defense budget increase would be to pull out an alien, you know,” he told Carlson.

“We’re like, I mean, it could be the invasion. It could be arriving any minute,” he said.

He said that while he hasn’t seen any signs pointing to aliens, he hopes there’s life beyond earth.

“I hope there is and I hope they’re peaceful,” he said.

Earlier this year, Congress held a historic hearing on UFOs by Representative Tim Burchett.

The House Oversight Committee heard testimonies from three witnesses about their experiences, including listening to some claims that the US might even possess an alien craft.

US intelligence official David Grusch, a former Navy commander, David Fravor, and Ryan Graves, a former Navy pilot, alleged that the government knew much more about extraterrestrial life than they claimed.

Grusch told the panel that he is ‘absolutely’ confident that the federal government is in possession of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena - UAPs - citing interviews he said he conducted with 40 witnesses over four years.

Graves also claimed that some witnesses had remained silent due to ‘pressure from the Pentagon’ and feared they would face ‘professional repercussions’.

Burchett added he wanted the federal government to release records regarding UFOs.

However, whether these records will be released remains to be seen.
