Why is Tom DeLonge on the show?
45-year-old Tom is best known as a musician and filmmaker. He was popular among fans for his distinctive nasal singing voice. The singer shot to fame after co-founding the rock band Blink-182 in 1992 and remained its co-lead vocalist and guitarist until the band broke up in 2015.
However, what many fans might not know is that the musician re-invented himself as a UFO researcher post the band’s break-up. As outlandish as this might sound, Tom decided to pursue his passion for science and science-fiction after the ‘Blink-182 chapter’ of his life closed.
In a 2019 interview with The New York Times, Tom revealed that he was fascinated with science fiction since his high school days. He was also a massive Star Wars fan, hence was attracted to the UFO phenomenon instantly when he came across it.

Blink-182 star’s career as UFO researcher explored
To pursue his passion for space and science, the singer founded the To the Stars Academy of Arts & Sciences in 2017. The organisation is run by a team of 12 people, which include former government employees. The aim of the organisation is to conduct research on UFOs and advance people’s understanding of the scientific phenomena.
The Blink-182 star was pursuing his passion for the UFO phenomena while he was still with the band. In 2011 he launched Strange Times, a website devoted to paranormal activity, extraterrestrial life, cryptozoology, as well as conspiracy theories.
Back in 2019, Tom’s To The Stars Academy announced the ADAM (Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials) Research Project. The academic research program focuses on studying exotic material samples from U.F.O.s.
