DAVID ADAIR is an internationally recognized leader and expert in the field of space technology spinoff applications for industry and commercial use. He has worked as a research scientist in the fields of engineering, jet engine technology, rocket science and nuclear physics.
At age of 11, David built his first rocket. It was a cryogenic liquid fuel engine that was six feet tall, 200 pounds in weight and had enough thrust to push it to an altitude of 52,000 feet and at a speed of 1,600 miles an hour with radio control guidance and parachute recovery. The rockets got bigger and faster from that point on.
Today, there are only two types of rocket engines used today by the space agencies around the world liquid fuel and solid propellant. At the age of 17, David built a rocket engine that was neither one, it was an “Electromagnetic Fusion Containment” engine, the first of its kind. It was launched on June 20, 1971 from White Sands Missile Proving grounds for which he was awarded “The Most Outstanding in the field of Engineering Sciences” from the United States Air Force.
David was invited to join the United States Navy, in his tour from 1972 to 1982 it was filled with engineering challenges and accomplishments and awards for serving with distinctions. During this time David became a pilot, diver and a certify jet engine technician.
After the Navy, David formed his own research company called Intersect, Inc. and for the next three decades David worked in his laboratory and is a professional speaker on the subject of Space Technology Transfer where his work continues to the present.

DOCUMENTARY: America’s Fall From Space
America’s Fall From Space is a documentary about government secrets and one man’s journey to gain back his reputation through speaking the truth. Published for the first time, personal documents, interviews and unspoken factual encounters are revealed in this notable account by David Adair. Approached by an Airforce General interested in first-strike capability in 1970, a 15 year old boy held the secret to the fastest rocket on Earth. Given secret resources by the U.S. Government, Adair developed his rocket in secret and destroyed it when he learned that it was to be used for first strike capability against Russia. Facing a lifetime of discreditation and silence under covert threats, Adair speaks out about technology lost and the truth about his rocket.
