Haim Eshed, who is a professor and former general, claims Israel and the United States have been dealing with an alien organisation known as the 'Galactic Federation' for ages.
Speaking to Yediot Aharonot, Eshed - who was in charge of Israel's space security programme for nearly 30 years, and has received Israel's Security Award on three occasions - confirmed that earthlings have been making agreements with the aliens for understanding and researching the 'fabric of the universe'.
Oh, and there is a secret underground base on Mars, staffed by American and alien representatives.
Maybe Donald Trump's Space Force isn't such a pie-in-the-sky concept after all?
Eshed claims Trump actually wanted to disclose the existence of the Galactic Federation, but was told by his extra-terrestrial allies that he shouldn't so as not to cause mass hysteria and panic because humans need to 'evolve and reach a stage where we will... understand what space and spaceships are'.
When asked why he's decided to divulge this interesting fact just now, Eshed said he'd reached a point where he is so respected within academia that he won't be dismissed as a crackpot, and because of how much the academic landscape has changed.
He also has a book out, for what that's worth.
The 87-year-old explained: "If I had come up with what I'm saying today five years ago, I would have been hospitalised.
"Today, they're already talking differently. I have nothing to lose. I've received my degrees and awards; I am respected in universities abroad, where the trend is also changing."
So, if you want to know the true specifics of what the aliens at the Galactic Federation are up to, you'll have to go out and purchase The Universe Beyond the Horizon - Conversations with Professor Haim Eshed.
In there, you'll also find out how the spacemen have prevented nuclear apocalypses here on earth, and 'when we can jump in and visit the Men in Black.'
In the meantime, we'll just have to satisfy ourselves with the USA's plans to get up to Mars and back to the moon, as well as the ongoing machinations of Elon Musk in attempting to get off this rotten rock.
The Galactic Federation was unavailable for comment.
