Robert Scott Lazar
Born January 26, 1959 (1959-01-26) (age 48)
Flag of the United States Coral Gables, Florida
Occupation Physicist[1]

Robert Scott Lazar (January 26, 1959), or Bob Lazar, claims to have worked from 1988 until 1989 as a physicist at an area called S-4 (Sector Four), located near Groom Lake, Nevada, next to Area 51. According to Lazar, S-4 served as a hidden military location for the study of extraterrestrial flying saucers. Lazar says he saw nine different alien discs there and provides details on their mode of propulsion.

In November 1989, Lazar appeared in a special interview with investigative reporter George Knapp on Las Vegas TV station KLAS to talk about the several aspects and implications of his work at S-4.[2] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Bob Lazar says he was initially introduced to work at S-4 by Dr. Edward Teller. His tasks consisted in the scientific investigation of the propulsion system of one of nine disc-shaped aircraft, as a general part of the ongoing reverse engineering project taking place at S-4.[3]
Edward Teller (original Hungarian name Teller Ede) (January 15, 1908 – September 9, 2003) was a Austria-Hungary-born American theoretical physicist, known colloquially as the father of the hydrogen bomb. ... Reverse engineering (RE) is the process of taking something (a device, an electrical component, a software program, etc. ...

Upon first sight, Lazar thought the saucers were secret, terrestrial aircraft, whose test flights must have been responsible for many UFO reports. Gradually, on closer examination and from having been shown multiple briefing documents, Lazar came to the conclusion that the discs must have been of extraterrestrial origin. In his filmed testimony, Lazar explains how this impression first hit him after he boarded the craft under study and examined their interior.[4]

For the propulsion of the studied vehicles, Bob Lazar explains how the atomic element 115 served as a nuclear fuel. Element 115 (or ununpentium (Uup)) reportedly provided an energy source which would produce anti-gravity effects under particulate bombardment. As the intense strong nuclear force field of element 115's nucleus would be properly amplified, the resulting effect would be a distortion of the surrounding gravitational field, allowing the vehicle to immediately shorten the distance to a charted destination.[5] General Name, Symbol, Number ununpentium, Uup, 115 Group, Period, Block 15, 7, p Atomic mass (299) g·mol−1 Electron configuration perhaps [Rn] 5f14 6d10 7s2 7p3 (guess based on bismuth) Electrons per shell 2, 8, 18, 32, 32, 18, 5 CAS registry number 54085-64-2 Selected isotopes References...

Lazar elaborates how he was given introductory briefings describing the historical involvement by extraterrestrial beings with this planet for 10,000 years. The beings originate from the Zeta Reticuli 1 & 2 star system and are therefore referred to as Zeta Reticulans, popularly called 'Greys'. [6] Zeta Reticuli (ζ Ret / ζ Reticuli) is a binary star system located about 39 light years away from Earth. ...

Credentials for and against

  • Scientific skepticism to Lazar's report was grounded on the fact that while the element 115 occurred in the atomic number range postulated for greater stability, terrestrial experiments to produce it indicate a half-life on the order of seconds rather than years.
    This criticism is counter-argued by Lazar on the ground that an isotope achievable only under distant stellar formation may be more stable than one resulting from collision of stable elements by conventional means. Lazar emphasizes how nuclear physics is evolving rapidly and that human scientists should soon be able to officially produce stable isotopes for that element.[7]
    In 2004, a team of American and Russian scientists succeeded in producing element 115 as an unstable isotope, confirming the existence of such an atom.[8]
  • Lazar says he has degrees from the California Institute of Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. However, skeptics report that his name does not appear on the alumni roll of either institution. The yearbooks from that time neither contain identity photos nor other references to Bob Lazar. Lazar alleges this is the result of the government's erasure of his past identity[9] for reasons of secrecy.
    In August 1990, reporter George Knapp investigated Robert Lazar's background and was presented with a W-2 tax slip showing payments from the Department of Naval Intelligence (see image),[10] corroborating Lazar's claim he worked for the US Navy. The Department of Naval Intelligence could be a front for the Office of Naval Intelligence.[11] .
"W-2" presented by Robert S. Lazar
  • On his commercial United Nuclear website, Bob Lazar writes in the 'about'-section: "Bob had previously worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory (specifically in the Meson Physics facility ), involved with experiments using the 1/2 mile long Linear Particle Accelerator."[12] Critics have argued that the Los Alamos Nuclear Laboratory could not back up this claim: the experimental laboratory denied ever having employed Lazar. Investigative reporter George Knapp, however, found Bob Lazar's name among that of other scientists in the 1982 Los Alamos phone book, indicating Lazar did work there as a technician.[13]
    Knapp also dug up a 1982 Los Alamos Monitor news article mentioning '(...)Lazar, a physicist at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility(...).'[14]

The company says the kits are on hold due to the actions of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.[15] To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ... The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is an independent agency of the U.S. federal government created in 1972 through the Consumer Safety Act to protect “against unreasonable risks of injuries associated with consumer products”.

Desert Blast

Lazar and Gene Huff also run Desert Blast, an annual festival for "explodaholics" in the Nevada desert. Starting in 1987 (but only formally named in 1991, inspired by Desert Storm) the festival features home-made explosives, rockets, jet-powered vehicles, and other pyrotechnics, with the intention of emphasizing the fun aspect of physics.[16] hhh See also: 2003 invasion of Iraq and Gulf War (disambiguation) C Company, 1st Battalion, The Staffordshire Regiment, 1st UK Armoured Division The Persian Gulf War was a conflict between Iraq and a coalition force of 34 nations led by the United States. ...

Lazar claims that when he first saw disc-shaped craft at the base, he concluded they were secret — but decidedly terrestrial — aircraft, and that sightings of test flights were responsible for UFO reports.
Lazar said this property explained the "triple dome" structure frequently shown in sketches and photographs of saucer-shaped UFOs, which he believed to be the crafts' gravity amplifiers.
Lazar described ununpentium as a heavy dull orange metal which had to be properly machined for such use.
Bob Lazar (508 words)
Bob lazar is the man who let out all the truth about area 51, he worked at area 51 and with the roswell aliens and the space crafts.
Lazar states that his work was focused on the propulsion system, a reactor fuelled by a stale, unearthly element.
According to Lazar, as the fuel transmutes and decays, anti-matter is released resulting in near 100% conversion of energy.
