Egypt's minister of worldwide cooperation has extended an invitation to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk after a Musk post on Twitter that the pyramids were built by extraterrestrial beings.

After his claim went viral, it caught the attention of Rania A. Al Mashat, Egypt's minister of global cooperation, who invited Musk to visit the pyramids so that he could study them better.

She tweeted: "I follow your work with a lot of admiration".

We all know that Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk loves to share his sometimes eccentric opinions, and this Friday he took it to Twitter to claim that the Egyptian pyramids were made by aliens.

After being questioned by many, Musk doesn't directly reply or accept Al-Mashat's offer, but it seems he continues to pick up some online sources about how the pyramids were built. His post was retweeted over 95,000 times.

In case seeing the evidence in person isn't enough, expert Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass also stepped in with an informational video spoken in Arabic.

Granted, the SE will see more of those updates, but Google says the Pixel 4a will see three full years of software support. The smaller 5.7-inch variant of the Pixel 4 had a paltry battery (2,800mAh) that struggled to last a day of usage.

Built as tombs for the pharaohs who ruled over Egypt, they continue to raise questions among scientists, who are not entirely sure how the towering structures were created. "Three thousand, eight hundred years", he tweeted.

Elon Musk says if Tesla Cybertruck fails Tesla will have a Plan B for the Cybertruck.

Over the next three days, Musk's tweet garnered over 500,000 likes and 80,000 retweets.

Besides, Musk's claim has made some Egyptian culture scholars uneasy. "Mr. Musk, we are waiting for you", Rania Al-Mashat wrote, underlining that aliens have nothing to do with the building of Egyptian pyramids.

Musk followed up by posting a link to a BBC article about the history of the giant structures, calling it "a sensible summary" of how they were constructed.

But his tweet prompted more than one public figure to speak out in Egypt.
