A billionaire aerospace developer who works with NASA says there is alien life on Earth.

"I'm absolutely convinced. That's all there is to it. There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence [here]," Robert Bigelow, founder of the space technology company Bigelow Aerospace, said Sunday on CBS' "60 Minutes."

Bigelow said he has shelled out "millions and millions and millions" of dollars on research into UFOs and the existence of aliens — more money "as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent.

Asked by correspondent Lara Logan whether he was worried people think he's "crazy," Bigelow responded: "I don't give a damn. I don't care. It's not going to make a difference. It's not going to change the reality of what I know.''

"You don't have to go anywhere [for alien encounters]. It's just like right under people's noses," Bigelow said.

Last May, Bigelow Aerospace worked with NASA to create the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module, an inflated room to attach to the International Space Station.

Bigelow's interest in extraterrestrial life began when he learned his grandparents had a close encounter with a UFO on a canyon road just outside Las Vegas.

"It really sped up and came right into their face and filled up the entire windshield of the car. And it took off at a right angle and shot off into the distance," Bigelow said.

The official U.S. position on aliens is that none have been found, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy wrote in 2011, according to CNN.

"That doesn't mean the subject of life outside our planet isn't being discussed or explored."
