On 25 July 2019, the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science (TTSA) website carried a post titled "To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science makes groundbreaking metamaterials acquisition." The text of the announcement was:
"San Diego, CA (July 25, 2019) - To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA) has acquired multiple pieces of metamaterials and an archive of initial analysis and research for their controversial ADAM Research Project. ADAM an acronym for Acquisition and Data Analysis of Materials, is an academic research program focused on the exploitation of exotic materials for technological innovation.
The ownership of these assets, which were previously retained and studied by investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe and are reported to have come from an advanced aerospace vehicle of unknown origin, allows TTSA to conduct rigorous scientific evaluation to determine its function and possible applications.
'The structure and composition of these materials are not from any known existing military or commercial application,' says Steve Justice, current COO of To The Stars Academy and former head of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin's "Skunk Works."
