Per an article over at Ars Technica, recent SEC filings submitted by To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science Inc. indicate that the group is deeply in debt. "Operating expenses… and accumulated deficit" have reached a staggering loss of nearly $38 million as of June, 2018.
The organization, which grew out of former Blink-182 guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge's interest in UFO phenomena, uses generic buzzwords to explain what their mission is.

Deeply in debt, whatever activities they may have already embarked on may be curtailed. However, per their website, they are still looking for investors.
