On Monday, December 7, former Israeli Space Security Chief Haim Eshed claimed that there was a Galactic Federation of alien life that was already in contact with the U.S. and Israeli governments.

According to Eshed, the aliens had convinced the governments to keep their existence a secret because humans were not ready for the revelation of extraterrestrial life.

Obviously, this wild news was immediately given the meme treatment on Twitter.

While a healthy dose of skepticism should definitely be applied to Eshed's claims, many online also felt that the existence of a Galactic Federation would explain President Trump's decision to start the Space Force during his first years in office.


Could aliens be real? If Donald Trump knows, he's not saying.



Many space enthusiasts online wondered whether Space Force was meant to help us join the Galactic Federation...or defend us against them.



Possible connections between alien life and the Space Force inevitably generated more memes online.



Meanwhile, Americans everywhere just tried to keep up with the barrage of recent space-related news.



Could humanity be on the verge of joining a Galactic Federation? If so, it's a good thing we've got a Space Force to explore the final frontier!
