David Adair was a child prodigy when it came to astrophysics and rocket science. Adair became enamored with space travel, designing rocket propulsion systems with cryogenic fluids. Eventually this led to his creation of a new type of system that had never before been created, the electromagnetic fusion containment engine. With this engine, he says, his rocket could propel from zero to 8,654 mph in just over four seconds. Adair was awarded “Most Outstanding in the Field of Engineering” by the U.S. Air Force and was featured in local papers. He says that, upon receiving that award, he started accepting federal funding from the Department of Education’s National Science Foundation, thanks to Congressman John Ashbrook. Adair claims he was flown directly to the Groom Lake base, where he was met by black-suited, government agents and shown to an underground facility where a rocket engine of similar nature was kept. The rocket was unlike anything he had ever seen and appeared to be punctured. He said he wondered why the Air Force was asking him to repair an engine they had designed, which was far superior to his own. But upon further inspection, he quickly understood it to be of alien origin and claims that it was actually a living organism that could only be controlled telepathically.

Terry Lovelace served on active duty in the United States Air Force from 1973 to 1979. Trained as a medic and EMT, the bulk of his enlistment was spent as a first responder at the Emergency Room of Whiteman Air Force Base Hospital. After military service he completed a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, cum laude, from Park University. He earned a Juris Doctor from Western Michigan in 1996 and was admitted to the bar the same year. In 2012 a routine X-ray found an anomalous bit of metal the size of a fingernail with two tiny wires attached. What followed were horrific nightmares, spontaneous recall, and intrusive thoughts surrounding a 1977 camping trip with a friend to Devils Den State Park in Northern Arkansas. For fear of losing his job and good standing in the legal community, Terry kept this secret for 40 years. But the 2012 discovery of this object, one and one-half inches deep in his thigh, initiated a flood of nightmares he could not control.
