For five years the four had trained together for the first manned flight to Mars. All, two men and two women, an American, a Canadian, a Japanese American, and an African-Australian were astronauts, having spent one tour on the International Space Station during training and another four months as they prepared an orbital launch of the SpaceCorp-owned spaceship Explorer. An over-burn of its rockets due to sabotage during departure dooms the Mars mission and leaves the Explorer and crew no choice but look for a new planet or asteroid to colonize. That’s what the US military and intelligence agencies wants everyone on Earth to think. In truth, the Explorer was on a dual mission, one to prepare a venue for colonization and the other a militarized mission to test a new device in space. There was no going back after they found what they were seeking.
Midnight December 17, 2017, Area 51 veteran and author TD Barnes will make his third appearance on the Coast-to-Coast radio show with George Knapp. Barnes will discuss his latest book release, a 3-book CIA Area 51 Chronicles titled “The Angels,” “The Archangels,” and “The Company Business.” The Angels cover why the CIA was chosen to build and fly the U-2 under Project AQUATONE, and why the agency developed what is known as Area 51 in Nevada to flight test the plane.
