Charles Bolden made the light-hearted remarks after being questioned by a ten-year-old on Sky News.
Bolden, who became the administrator of NASA back in 2009, had been answering questions put to him by schoolchildren on the channelís Hot Seat programme when he was asked about alien life.

"I do believe that we will someday find other forms of life or a form of life, if not in our solar system then in some of the other solar systems - the billions of solar systems in the universe," he said.

When asked about Area 51 he went on to mention that he had visited the secretive base himself.
"Iíve been to a place called that but itís a normal research and development place," he said. "I never saw any aliens or alien spacecraft or anything when I was there. I think because of the secrecy of the aeronautics research that goes on there itís ripe for people to talk about aliens being there."

Bolden however was confident that evidence of alien life would be found sooner or later.

"Today we know that there are literally thousands, if not millions of other planets, many of which may be very similar to our own earth," he said. "So some of us, many of us believe that we're going to find evidence that there is life elsewhere in the universe."

Where did the Dulce base rumours even come from?? Not denying its existence just curious Paul Bennewitz. Secret underground Alien base told by a UFO conspiracy nut. Does it even need denying?

Does every person around the world need to know the US secrets? Unless you're a military personel or are somewhat important to the research then I see no reason you should be privy.

In the interest of national security keeping secrets, even from ordinary citizens these secrets are designed to protect, are necessary.

If a person in his position said they had a ship and an alien at area 54, it would be considered proof by some. Since he says there is nothing, it is considered BS by some.

Extra-terrestrial life does exist, the head of Nasa has confirmed, but said aliens were not hidden in Area 51. Nasa Administrator Major Charles Bolden told British schoolchildren that he was confident that scientists would find life outside of Earth because there were so many planets that are similar to our own. http://www.telegraph...ad-of-Nasa.html The best liars have a bit of truth in them. Seems like he's admitting to the obvious to try to cover up the big secret. (Even though I don't believe there are aliens at Area 51, it's an odd statement to make).
