When the Rho Project's lead scientist, Dr. Donald Stephenson, is imprisoned for his crimes against humanity, the world dares to think the threat posed by the Rho Project's alien technologies is finally over. The world is wrong. In Switzerland, scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider have discovered a new threat, a scientific anomaly capable of destroying the earth -- and only Rho Project technology can stop it. In exchange for a full pardon, Dr. Stephenson agrees to create a wormhole that will send the anomaly into deep space. But his promise masks the alien agenda that brought the Rho Ship to earth. Now a trio of accidentally altered humans must infiltrate Stephenson's wormhole project and stop it, no matter the cost. The final battle has begun -- and this is one battle mankind cannot afford to lose.

Gravity is now so universally accepted, it seems almost impossible to believe that for millennia, the force remained unknown. Yet it wasn’t until a few brilliant minds—standing on the shoulders of the giants before them—began asking the right questions that we could explain why we don’t float off the ground, why planets remain in orbit, and why time travel remains even a distant possibility. Interspersing history with science to support STEM learning, this exciting volume chronicles the evolution of our understanding of gravity by tracing the lives and experiments of the individuals instrumental in advancing gravitational physics.

In their battle to save Earth from becoming another conquest of the alien Kasari Collective, Mark and Heather Smythe have struck crucial blows against the enemy. But their best efforts have still failed to derail the completion of the wormhole gateway that would give the insidious extraterrestrial invaders access to the planet--and doom humankind as helpless slaves of the Kasari hive mind. The Smythes and their intrepid allies--including the mentally altered humans, The Enhanced--stand ready to beat back the Kasari onslaught once and for all. Not by mortal combat, but with scientific cunning. Still, the success of their plan depends on a daring stealth mission into the heart of the aliens' nerve center on Earth. And multiple threats lie in wait--including the ruthless Kasari commander, a brutal double agent with a deadly vendetta to settle, and the alien entity Khal Teth, who wears a human face but is ready to strike with monstrous force. In this stunning conclusion to the Rho Agenda Assimilation by the bestselling author of The Second Ship, the small but fierce band of altered humans and Earth's resistance fighters face their greatest opportunity to stop the Kasari. But with the remnants of humanity and a battered Earth caught in the cross fire, can they secure a victory without sacrificing everything they're trying to protect?
