    Tom Delonge’s To the Stars Academy Wants to Warp Spacetime

    If you had told me around the time 1999’s Enema of the State debuted that Blink 182 guitarist and co-frontman Tom DeLonge would for better or worse one day become one of the public faces of modern UFOlogy (definitely worse) , I wouldn’t have believed it. Then again, Donald Trump is now President of the United States and the Berenstein Bears are now the Berenstain Bears, so maybe it’s time we all accept that the massive computer simulation we live in is glitching out and just move on with it.

    Or maybe one of CERN’s experiments has scrambled a few different universes together.

    DeLonge first burst onto the anomalistics scene in 2016 with the release of Sekret Machines Book 1: Chasing Shadows, a science fiction novel co-written with A.J. Hartley which blends real events and not-so-real events into a compelling tale of government cover-ups, anomalous aerial phenomena, and curiously-spelled titles. Following the book’s release, DeLonge teamed up with some fairly big names to form To the Stars Academy, self-described as “a consortium among science, aerospace and entertainment that will work collectively to allow gifted researchers the freedom to explore exotic science and technologies with the infrastructure and resources to rapidly transition them to products that can change the world.”

    It’s important to note that they include “entertainment” in their list of target industries, as DeLonge and company seem to be much more focused on producing books and television series than they are actually working towards disclosure of any secrets the government may possess concerning UFOs. Still, DeLonge and To the Stars keep assuring us all that more groundbreaking revelations are coming if we all just wait patiently and, more importantly, buy their books.

    To that end, To the Stars, Inc. has recently filed its 2019 documents with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) detailing its plans for the coming year. The filings were dug up by Keith Basterfield at the always insightful blog Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – Scientific Research. According to the filings, To the Stars, Inc. is focusing on its science division in 2019, and appears to have plans to carry out research in some of the most advanced theoretical physics imaginable.

    According to Basterfield’s research, some of To the Stars, Inc.’s planned projects include: research into Beamed Energy Propulsion, or BEP, a method for launching spacecraft using high-powered lasers; and Space Time Metric Engineering (STME), a long-theorized method of long-distance space travel in which space and time are manipulated or ‘bent’ in order to instantly travel unimaginably long distances.

    Basterfield notes that despite how lofty the goals reported in these SEC filings are, To the Stars Academy operates no known active research projects or facilities capable of actually, you know, researching these technologies. Can an institute led by a former pop punk rocker be the first to achieve Beamed Energy Propulsion launch systems or Space Time Metric Engineering capable of bending space time itself, or is this all more smoke and mirrors designed to sell books and promote upcoming television series?

    Well that's wrong: Puthoff and Davis have been operating EarthTech International Inc. / Institute for Advanced Studies at a facility in Austin for nearly 30 years. TTSA formalized their partnership with EarthTech last year.

    Spacetime propulsion, aka gravitational field propulsion, is still in the theoretical development stage - so it's a bit premature to set up a manufacturing facility like Lockheed's Skunk Works.

    And they've already stated that they're working on developing beamed energy propulsion with partners who already have manufacturing facilities suitable for that project.

    And finally, they currently have an active research project for the analysis of the many anomalous samples they've acquired through public channels.

    So everything about that sentence is wrong.

    There's another non-fiction DeLonge show forthcoming. It's posted in a separate thread.

    Yeah, somehow we got from tic-tacs to metamaterials and now it's TV shows, aerospace and t-shirts.

    A mule is a horse designed by committee.

    There is lots of show bidness involved. That's really not surprising, but it's really not a good thing either. Among other things, it could be the source of a lot of the expectations of instant gratification. Research is demanding and often slow. It looks to me like TTSA has produced many times more results in their time in business than, say, Mufon has in the same time frame. Patience is rare on the internet though.

    I agree. Over the last year I've lost count of the number of times I've cited the AATIP and the Nimitz case in discussions about this subject - what's been released so far has changed the public conversation about UFOs/AAVs in ways that I never thought possible. And at a very personal level, I can now describe the imponderable zig-zag flight trajectories of the craft that I witnessed as a child, and compare it with the identical assessment of Cmdr. Fravor: it was like watching a ping-pong ball reflecting off of invisible walls in the air - no known human technology can even approximately replicate those kind of maneuvers without exploding in mid-air. TTSA has so dramatically changed the public discourse about this subject that we haven't even begun to appreciate the shift in public perception yet.

    But the elephant in the room is the pending results of the materials analyses and their physical significance - apparently Steve Justice and the others think they've found something dramatic. If that's true, it could signal the sea change for this entire subject that we've all been waiting for: the bridge between theory and application for the subject of gravitational field propulsion.

    I'm cautiously hopeful. It looks like we'll know one way or another within a matter of weeks. I've waited for over 40 years to see a breakthrough in this area: I can wait a few more months without getting snarky about it. Sadly, few online personas share my tolerance of the time requirements for meaningful scientific progress.

    No, genius. The ADAM Project was announced less than eight months ago.

    but in 2 years they could have made progress in something else, but they obviously din't
