The SpaceX boss shared a tweet recently in which he claimed to have the 'strongest argument' against extra-terrestrials.

In the tweet, he shows two graphs, one showing how camera resolution has gradually gotten better over time, vs how footage of UFO sightings has always continued in a linear graph, moving forward in time, never moving upward.

He captioned the tweet with the meme, “Strongest argument against aliens"

The graphs that Musk posted point towards the fact that despite the camera resolution used being pretty good, most images of 'aliens' show just floating blobs.

However, last month, after pushing up the prices of stocks of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and making ‘Doge memes’ a reported phenomenon, the Tesla CEO seemed to indulge in some humour. “I’m an alien,” Musk wrote on Twitter. The SpaceX chief was responding to a question by an Indian entrepreneur and founder of credit payments app CRED, Kunal Shah.
