Elon Musk Claims Pyramids Were Built By Aliens
By Vincent Liu
On Friday, July 31, Elon Musk posted a tweet saying “Aliens built the pyramids obv.” The tweet has been retweeted more than 84, 000 times.
The day after, Egypt's Minister of International Cooperation, Rania al-Mashat, responded on Twitter, saying she followed and admired Mr Musk's work, but she urged him to further explore evidence about the structures built for pharaohs of Egypt.
After returning from this internet journey, Musk gave some proof from a BBC article that the pyramids were actually built by humans. According to BBC news, “Mr. Musk did later tweet a link to a BBC History site about the lives of the pyramid builders, saying: ‘This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done.’”
