LUIS ELIZONDO REVEALS DETAILS ABOUT PENTAGONS HIDDEN UFO PROGRAM IN STUNNING NEW YORK TIMES FRONT PAGE EXPOS
ELIZONDO LEAVES PENTAGON TO JOIN TO THE STARS ACADEMY OF ARTS & SCIENCE
ELIZONDO AND TO THE STARS ACADEMY OF ARTS & SCIENCE LAUNCH
COMMUNITY OF INTEREST WEBSITE WITH FIRST OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT VIDEOS OF UNIDENTIFIED AERIAL PHENOMENA VIDEOS SEENHERE
Los Angeles (December 16, 2017) TheNew York Timeshas published a stunningexpostitled Glowing Auras and Black Money: The Pentagons Mysterious U.F.O. Program. In it, former Pentagon military intelligence officialLUIS ELIZONDOconfirmed the existence of a hidden government program (the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program) that investigated the existence of U.F.Os, a department he ran under a veil of secrecy since 2009.
TheTimesstoryfeatured an excerpt from Elizondos resignation letter in which he expressed his frustration with the limitations placed on the program, telling higher-ups there remains a vital need to ascertain capability and intent of these phenomena for the benefit of the armed forces and the nation.
Elizondo left his Pentagon post to joinTo The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a consortium of scientists, aerospace engineers and creatives founded by company President and CEOTom DeLonge, VP of Science and TechnologyDr.Hal Puthoff(also quoted in theTimesstory) and = VP of OperationsJim Semivan. The principals include Aerospace Division DirectorSteve Justiceand National Security Affairs AdvisorChris Mellon. The company launched this past October with a mission to explore exotic science and technologies to rapidly transition innovative ideas into world-changing products and services.
I am first and foremost a soldier, says Elizondo, who now serves as Director of Global Security & Special Programs for To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science. I was honored to serve at the DOD and took my mission ofexploring unexplained aerial phenomena quite the end, however, I couldnt carry out thatmission, because the Department which was understandably overstretched couldnt give it the resources that the mounting evidence deserved. So, under verygood terms, I left to find an environment where investigating thesephenomenais priority number one.Im thrilled to say I found that environmentat the To The Stars Academy, anamazing team of top-flight scientists from the defense, industry andintelligence communities alongside passionate creatives to help tell the story.We lookforward to working closely with the US government to produce the bestpossible results for America andthe world.
Today Elizondo and the TTS Academy launched a Community of Interest website to serve as a central database and communal hub clickHERE. The website will be home to video footage, documents and other materials that can be studied and explored for transformative breakthroughs in science and engineering through a unique collaboration among scientists, academics, industry partners, government and the public at large.
Its content at launch includes two of the first official U.S. government videos of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) referenced in the Times article, which have recently gone through the U.S. governments official declassification review process to be approved for public release. Alongside each video is technical analysis from Elizondo and TTS Academys Aerospace Division Director (and former Program Director for Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martins Skunk Works) Steve Justice. ClickHERE.
Footage in the videos was captured by advanced sensor tracking technology in separate U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets. In the 34-second Gimbal (the name likely a reference to the UAPs free-tilting movement), astonished pilots can be heard talking excitedly about an oval-shaped craft spotted at an altitude close to 25,000 feet. The object has no distinguishable flight surfaces or exhaust plume, and its flight seems to defy the known laws of physics. In the under-1:30 video FLIR1 (reference to footage captured by the F/A-18s Forward Looking Infrared System), an unknown object is seen at appx. 24,000 feet. The footage, which has no sound, shows the object hovering with no exhaust plume, displaying extreme maneuverability and sudden acceleration that cannot be achieved by any known aircraft. These are two of several official videos obtained by TTS Academy that serve as credible proof of the physics of advanced flight.

Since our 11 October launch event, there has been great interest and speculation regarding the details of the Aerospace Division. Allow me to share some insights into our organization and near-term plans.
The organization is structured to be the central technology and program development arm for TTS Academy. It is composed of three groups:
As of today, TTS Academy is evaluating hundreds of newly received technical papers and studies created by universities and technology companies. This information covers materials, physics, and analyses of observed events. While we evaluate and expand our understanding of breakthrough physics for advanced propulsion, we also expect near-term, demonstrated progress in advancing technology. We are building plans for experiments with exotic materials and beamed energy propulsion systems. Each effort will be approached using the scientific method to ensure results are substantiated and provide indisputable proof of all claims.
We should never be just one thing. We should all be ands.As I describe in my new book that comes out in January(pre-order it and youll not only make Penguin Random House happy, youll also be my new best friend)while we dont all have to beserial entrepreneurs… we should all be serialachievers.
We should all try to be more than one thing — regardlessof what otherpeople might think.
Case in point:Tom DeLonge. If you dont know Tom, hes a multi-platinum selling rock musician (Blink-182,Angels and Airwaves) whoturned down a considerable payday from re-uniting with his old band toself-finance a science fiction-related book/music/film project.
Somehow thatprojectledhim to have meetings with individuals at the Department of Defense and NASA — people who dont have sit-downs with anyone, much less rock stars.
And somehow those meetings lead to partnering witha 25-year veteran of the CIAs Director of Operations, a Lockheed Martin Program Director for Advanced Systems at Skunk Works, and a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence to start a company to explore exotic science and technologies and turn innovative ideas into world-changing products and services.
The result isTo The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a Public Benefit Corporation that seeks tocollaborate with global citizens to advance science and build a powerful community of interestthat is made up of three divisions: Entertainment, Science, and Aerospace.
Sound like a pretty farfetched and for a rock star to pull off?
After talking with Tom and Steve Justice, the Director of the Aerospace Division, I realized itsnot.

[Excerpt]Something extraordinary is about to be revealed. Former high-level officials and scientists with deep black experience who have always remained in the shadows are now stepping into the light. These insiders have long-standing connections to government agencies, which may have programs investigating unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). They intend to move into the private sector and to make all declassified information, and any future knowledge, available for all to see.
HOW IS TTS ACADEMY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COMPANIES OF ITS KIND?
There are no other companies like TTS Academy. There are other smaller independent research companies investigating similar technologies. However, TTS Academy is the first and only public benefit corporation (PBC) to have a focused effort for data collection and study of exotic technologies, the ability to apply those technologies to create products with revolutionary capabilities and to share the story of that journey through an entertainment division. What also sets us apart
