The White House has denied that President Barack Obama was teleported to Mars in the 1980s as a member of a secret CIA project hosted at a community college in California.
Two people have made the claim while asserting that they themselves were time-travelling government agents sent across the solar system to explore new worlds.
Andrew D. Basiago and William Stillings have argued that they served as "chrononauts" at the request of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
The two men also insist that the Commander In Chief was part of the team and made two trips to the Red Planet via a "jump room".
At that time, aged 19, Barack was reportedly known as Barry Soetero. (Us neither.)
Among the other seven members of the team was Regina Dugan, who Obama appointed as the first female director of Darpa in 2009.
Stillings made a statement in August 2011 that said: "I can confirm that Andrew D. Basiago and Barack Obama (then using the name "Barry Soetoro") were in my Mars training course in Summer 1980 and that during the time period 1981 to 1983, I encountered Andy, Courtney M. Hunt of the CIA, and other Americans on the surface of Mars after reaching Mars via the "jump room" in El Segundo, California.”
Now Wired magazine reports that the White House has been forced - albeit with tongue firmly in cheek - to deny that Obama ever made the 200m mile trip.
So has Obama been to Mars? "Only if you count watching Marvin the Martian," Tommy Vietor, the spokesman for the National Security Council, told Wired.
Well, we're glad that's all cleared up. Make sure to head to Wired for the full story.
As for David Cameron, however - well, no claims as to his interplanetary past have been made. But you wouldn't be surprised would you?
