UFO-hunter Scott C Waring claims to have found a 10-mile-long spaceship in the Moon’s Waterman Crater. The alien spacecraft, in his opinion, could contain a treasure-trove of information and secret technologies. Mr Waring, who runs the conspiracy blog UFO Sightings Daily, contacted Mr Musk to consider recovering the spacecraft. He said: “I tweeted Elon Musk and was surprised at all the retweets people gave it.
“Apparently there are a lot of people who think it’s a good idea for Musk to look into it.
“I felt like maybe I should let Elon Musk know about one of the 10-mile-long alien ships that I found.
“This particular craft is in Waterman Crater on Earth’s moon.
“I thought that if I let him know that such a high-tech ship with a length of about 10 to 11-miles-long existed, that perhaps he may take an interest in salvaging it.”
Mr Waring argued the recovery of the UFO could boost humanity’s desire to colonise worlds within the solar system and beyond.
The UFO expert theorised the alien spaceship could still be working or may have been abandoned by its owners.
He said: “What I mean by working, is that you know how a phone gets outdated in a few years, so you toss aside the old one?
“Well, this may only have been replaced with a newer model.
“Think about how many people a 10-mile ship could accommodate on it.
“It would be enough to begin new colonies on other planets.”
In a tweet directed at Mr Musk and his electric car company Tesla, Mr Waring encouraged the South African billionaire to think of the technology onboard.
He said: “Get this ship and it will take humans across the universe.”
Mr Waring then said “slapping a Tesla logo” on the alleged spaceship would change the whole planet.
Whether or not Mr Waring’s bizarre UFO claims are true, Mr Musk’s rocket company SpaceX is bound for the Moon in the near future.
SpaceX is expected to fly Japanese art collector and billionaire Yusaku Maezawa on a first-of-its-kind round trip around the Moon in 2023.
The private journey past the Moon and back will fund SpaceX’s future deep space exploration missions.
Mr Musk, who is currently focused on safely sending US astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS), has not responded publicly to Mr Waring’s tweet.
