As John Koch entered the elevator at his quarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and went to the 11th floor, he was in deep thought. It had been another day of dead-end problems at his job. He was very tired after the frustration of the work and the plane ride from Area 51 in Nevada. He had been at the site most of the week, and every day had seen unanswered problems. He was on the verge of a burn out. He had seen several scientists succumb to that problem in the last two years.
He was on a secret Government project at Sandia Laboratories. The actual testing of the project was being done at Area 51 in Nevada. It was a very confidential project, and had generated many stories about what it was. There were just a handful of persons who knew the truth, and John Koch was one of the scientists that had been recruited for the project. He was second in command, and his good friend of many years, Tom Kincaid, was the lead scientist.
