Extraterrestrial enthusiasts may be disappointed to hear Edward Snowden's official take on the matter: The infamous NSA leaker doesn't think the government is hiding evidence of extraterrestrial life. While he was a contractor at the National Security Agency, "I had ridiculous access to the networks of the NSA, CIA, military, all these groups—I couldn't find anything" indicating such evidence exists, he said Wednesday in an interview on Joe Rogan's podcast. "If it's hidden, and it could be hidden, it's hidden really damn well especially for people on the inside." CNET notes extraterrestrial life is a favorite topic of Rogan's, and Snowden told the host, "I know, Joe, I know you want there to be aliens." (Rogan's podcast is the one in which Elon Musk took a puff off a joint, which caused the Tesla founder a few problems.)
