Richard Branson Doesn’t Believe in Aliens
Billionaire Richard Branson insists he's getting closer and closer to launching himself into the stratosphere aboard a Virgin Galactic rocket. ("My trip to space will be very soon," he teased in May.) But he's not expecting much traffic once he lifts off.
Despite a May 26 New York Times bombshell report on how multiple Navy pilots have reported (and recorded) strange objects flying through the skies at impossible speeds, Branson, 68, remains skeptical. “Sadly, when you look closely you'll find that there's another explanation for all of them in the same way that in the Bermuda Triangle there's another explanation for all the mysteries [there]. There's no question that there are millions of other civilizations out there, but none of them are within reach of Earth and therefore, my instinct is: extremely unlikely.”
