On the day that NASA welcomes back the Dragon Space Capsule from its time connected to the International Space Station, a story about aliens comes out.
In Egypt. Building the pyramids.
2020, don’t you ever stop being you.
Elon Musk is the founder and C.E.O. of Space X which has joined with NASA to send America back into space and safely bring astronauts back home. The Dragon mission has been a success and with the recent launch of another Mars mission, Perseverance Rover, we are once again looking up to the stars.
Let’s face it, we are kinda a big mess down here.
In anticipation of the Dragon capsule on Sunday splashing back home, he decided to pontificate about aliens building the pyramids. Officials from Egypt were less than amused.
From the BBC…
Egypt has invited billionaire Elon Musk to visit the country and see for himself that its famous pyramids were not built by aliens.
The SpaceX boss had tweeted what appeared to be support for conspiracy theorists who say aliens were involved in the colossal construction effort.
But Egypt’s international co-operation minister does not want them to take any of the credit.
She says seeing the tombs of the pyramid builders would be the proof.
Here are Elon’s tweet and Rania A. Al Mashat’s response.

I follow your work with a lot of admiration. I invite you & Space X to explore the writings about how the pyramids were built and also to check out the tombs of the pyramid builders. Mr. Musk, we are waiting for you 🚀. @elonmusk https://t.co/Xlr7EoPXX4

Now I get that the fascination of how the pyramids were built has raged on ever since the guy with the crazy hair appeared on that one show from the History Channel that said something like ‘ I’m not saying it was Aliens, but it was Aliens.” Musk though must have been really hyped or bored to step on his big weekend here with that tweet.
This guy has had a vision of making commercial space travel a reality since the early 2000s and he is about to make that a reality. What would possess him to tweet this out at this time? Why make the Egyptians cranky, don’t they kinda like us right now?
You know what, who cares. Elon Musk is a genius and he is the private sector equivalent of Donald Trump on Twitter. He can tweet one thing out and change the conversation on social media for hours and days with just one comment. For all, I know he might already have proof that aliens did build the pyramids, killed the dinosaurs, and built that rock thing in England that people dance around twice a year.
Being it is 2020 this is all a real possibility. Hopefully, the extraterrestrials left a cure for COVID-19 being that dumpster fire needs to be put out.
