From Gettysburg to Mars (and 2045 Along the Way): Andrew D. Basiago & the Secret U.S. Time-Space Program, by Michael J. Hobart

“The time-space age has begun.”

- Andrew D. Basiago

Amidst the post-millennial resurgence of conspiracy culture and the boom of alternative media, many self-identified whistleblowers have stepped forward with public revelations of their “insider knowledge” on the secret doings of governments and the so-called  ‘Elite.’ Typically, they are believed by some, and ridiculed by many.  These potential whistleblowers tell stories that are often impossible to corroborate, and push our accepted notions of reality to their limits.
