|Guests:||David Adair, Wesley J. Smith|
Monday's main guest, space technology consultant David Adair shared his extraordinary experiences at Area 51 when, as a mere teenager, he said he examined a gigantic engine which had an "exoskeleton" shaped liked a number eight. Adair was asked to evaluate the object (which had a damaged core), based on work he had done with his own advanced rocketry.
Among the surprising elements to the engine, which he described as having an "organic technology" similar in appearance to the designs of H.R. Giger (who created the look of the original Aliens film), was a set of "cascading wave forms" that arose from flesh contact with the structure. Adair speculated that because of the huge size of the engine, it could power a craft the size of a football field, or possibly even larger. "There's no way on God's earth we could have built anything like this," he said.
Adair said he is currently involved in launching his own rockets from an undisclosed location near the Caribbean Islands, where he is attempting to perfect a microgravity process.
Spotlight on Area 51
"I was standing on an alien engine the size of a Greyhound bus in an underground top secret Air Force base that doesn't officially exist," wrote tonight's guest David Adair in an article on his website. Adair, who as a teen was a rocket science prodigy, said he visited Area 51 in 1971, where he was taken to a huge clandestine hangar containing mysterious spacecraft.
Similar claims about Area 51 (Groom Lake) have been made by Bob Lazar, who in 1989 brought notoriety to the facility with his tale of being part of a crew that was involved in "reverse-engineering" huge alien craft. As news of the location spread, a bit of a tourist industry built up around the area, including the Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, Nevada, and Highway 375, which was officially designated as the The Extraterrestrial Highway.
90 miles northwest of Las Vegas, the six-by-ten-mile dry lake bed known as Area 51 was reportedly begun in the 1950's to test the U-2 spy plane. Whether or not alien craft have existed there remains debatable, but it is commonly accepted that a variety of "black projects" such as the "Blackbird" and "Aurora" have been tested there. Most recently, Pres. Bush renewed the yearly secrecy exemption for the base.
Terri Schiavo Case
"This is not a right-to-die case, but a no-right-to-live case," said author and public advocate Wesley J. Smith who appeared in the first hour of Monday's program. He was speaking about the unbelievable legal situation of Terri Schiavo, a 39 year old disabled woman whose husband has gone to court to arrange her death via court ordered starvation. Smith conjectured that Florida's Judge George Greer may have made such a ruling based on his own "fear and loathing of disability."
