Egypt has been forced to tell billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk its pyramids were not built by aliens.

Musk was quickly slammed by history experts after he tweeted a conspiracy theory that martians constructed the ancient pharaoh tombs.

The SpaceX founder and notorious Twitter user was both ridiculed and supported for his controversial claim about the historic structures.

He tweeted to his 37.4m followers: “Aliens built the pyramids obviously”.

The post amassed a huge 500,000 likes on Twitter but also drew a lot of criticism from experts.

Billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk says Egypt’s pyramids were built by aliens

Archaeologists say there is plenty of evidence that shows the pyramids in Egypt were built at the hands of humans as tombs of their pharaoh rulers.

And tech developer Musk was slammed by top Egyptologist Zahi Hawass.

Hawass dismissed Musk’s online musing as nothing more than a “complete hallucination”.

He said: “I found the tombs of the pyramids builders that tell everyone that the builders of the pyramids are Egyptians and they were not slaves.”

And Egypt’s minister of international co-operation, Rania al Mashat, has even chimed in.

She offered to show Musk the tombs so he could see the evidence for himself.

She said: “I follow your work with a lot of admiration.

“I invite you to explore the writings about how the pyramids were built and also to check out the tombs of pyramid builders.”

Musk is known for his erratic and outspoken Twitter presence.

It is not the first time one of his Tweets has hit the headlines.

The mogul uses the platform for announcements and to connect with his fans – but has been known to “troll” his haters.

After reaction to his aliens claim, Mr Musk tweeted a link to a BBC History site about the pyramid builders, saying: “This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done.”

And he also later added: “The Great Pyramid was the tallest structure made by humans for 3,800 years.”

There are more than 100 surviving pyramids but the most famous is the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt – standing at more than 450ft (137m).

Conspiracy theorists have long speculated that pyramids were made with extra terrestrial help.

Sceptics have questioned how humans would have been able to build the giant structures, which date back to 2580BC.

The theory goes that they had alien assistance, providing advanced technology to get the pyramids built.
