first_imgNeil Armstrong was the first human to walk on the moon. NASA We live in a world rife with moon-landing conspiracy theories, where out-there ideas suggest we didn’t land on the moon at all, or, if we did, there were aliens already there. Thank goodness we have Elon Musk to help guide us deeper into the confusion.The SpaceX founder posted a bizarre/cryptic/silly tweet on Thursday saying, “There are no coincidences,” along with a meme of Neil Armstrong in a spacesuit next to an image of an alien. The meme says, “Neil Armstrong was the first person to land on the moon. ‘Neil A.’ backwards is ‘alien.'” Share your voice NASA turns 60: The space agency has taken humanity farther than anyone else, and it has plans to go further.’Hello, humans’: Google’s Duplex could make Assistant the most lifelike AI yet. We can also examine what happens when you spell Elon Musk backwards. You get “Ksum Nole.” KSUM is a country-music radio station in Fairmont, Minnesota. “Nole” is the nickname of Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic, a notorious prankster also known as the Joker. So, it seems Musk could be hiding a secret life as a comedy country music songwriter in the vein of Ray Stevens.Or maybe he’s just a guy who makes electric cars, tunnels and spaceships and plans to fly a bunch of artists around the moon. That’s plenty strange enough.

Comments on Musk’s tweet point out that there were indeed aliens on the moon: the humans who set foot on it. The backwards Neil Armstrong idea isn’t new. A Reddit thread from four years ago muses on how his name spells “Gnorts, Mr Alien” backwards when you use his full last name. The concept continues to fall apart when you include his middle name: Gnorts Mr Anedl Alien.”  There are no coincidences pic.twitter.com/9AEbbuXZGn— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 3, 2019 0 The tweet attracted a storm of over 475,000 likes. Musk soon followed it up with another backwards musing: “Evian, the first bottled water, is naive spelled backwards.” Elon Musk comes alive on social media: Part entrepreneur, part madman 18 Photos Post a comment Tags Elon Musk goofing off Elon Musk Spacelast_img read more
