Superheavy elements as a UFO fuel?
INVESTIGATION INTO CLAIMS OF SUPERHEAVY ELEMENTS
AS POWER SOURCES FOR EXTRATERRESTRIAL SPACECRAFT
Shannon D. Smith
If you have seen the video about alien technology made by Bob
Lazar, you might have been cautiously amazed by the potential
quantum leap in advanced technology supposedly transferred to us
by the "extraterrestrials". The possibility of fraud first comes
to mind, but this also presents a convenient opportunity for
verification of part of the science revealed. In this
presentation, Lazar claims that he has spent part of 1988-1989
working in a top secret government research station (S4 of Area
51 of the Nevada Test Site at Mercury, Nevada), learning about the
workings of alien technology. I have briefly researched only the
portion dealing with the alleged source of the tremendous power
behind these flying machines.
Lazar stated that he personally witnessed nine different
"flying disks", then proceeded to describe the workings of the
"sport model". He revealed that the source of the craft's energy
as well as the reason for its ability to manipulate spacetime was
the previously unknown element of nature, element atomic number
115. This element supposedly exists only in other solar systems
with different structures (e.g. double stars). He gave a short
lesson in space-time physics, with the added information that two
of the fundamental forces, the strong nuclear force and gravity,
are really the same force (similar to some modern theories). These
are referred to as "gravity A" and "gravity B". The special thing
about the superheavy element 115 is that it is so compact that the
internal nuclear force, gravity A, extends beyond the bounds of the
nucleus, therefore being "accessible to amplification". This is
accomplished by converting it to the unstable element 116, which
emits antimatter that is then somehow (he isn't very specific on
the video) converted into beams of gravity waves and
electromagnetic energy. The gravity A waves can be focused tightly
enough to "warp spacetime" and allow fancy maneuvers, including
being able to stretch vast distances like a rubber net and
therefore appear to circumvent the limit of the speed of light.
These imagination-stretching claims made by Bob Lazar offer
a tempting opportunity to determine their validity by scientific
(theoretical) means. It turns out that superheavy elements have
been a hot topic among nuclear scientists for many years. A
symposium on the subject (see reference below) was held in Lubbock,
Texas in March, 1978. I originally thought it would be easy to
disprove Lazar's claims by theoretical means, naively predicting
the instability of the superheavy elements by virtue of the sharply
decreasing stabilities of elements beyond atomic number 100. Much
to my surprise, there was ample theoretical evidence for an "Island
of Stability" around the atomic number of 114. This was what Lazar
had said, that the elements of interest, 114 and 115, were stable.
I was also very surprised to find that it has been postulated
that certain superheavy elements might possibly have nuclear fields
reaching out into the area of the atom normally reserved for the
electrons. These fields would be so powerful, it was predicted,
that there would be a matter-antimatter particle pair produced from
"empty" space and a positron (antimatter-electron) would then orbit
the nucleus. Other papers presented at the symposium provided
insights into some of the other revelations of Lazar's, including
the lack of a Solar-system production mechanism for superheavies
(perhaps a supernova or binary star system), the use of element 115
instead of 114 (114 is predicted to be a liquid or even a gas at
room temperatures), and possibly even a covert reason for our race
to the Moon (ore deposits from the melting of the primeval Moon by
There were many papers at the symposium concerning evidence
for superheavies on Earth and in cosmic rays, with unexplainable
giant halo patterns in mica, strange radiation from minerals, hot
springs extracts, and meteorites, and one particularly energetic
cosmic ray trace that has no other feasible explanation. The push
for high-energy particle accelerators (Superconducting Super-
Collider, perhaps?) as major government projects is understandable
given the potential rewards. Most of the authors would probably
agree with Lazar that there will be no appreciable superheavy
elements naturally occurring in this solar system, and that
synthesizing Superheavy elements would be extremely difficult if
not impossible. Ten years later, there was still no evidence from
nature or accelerators, which may mean the energy to build them is
not available in this solar system.
So it seems that the story told by Lazar is still in fact a
scientific possibility (given the additional speculations of
unified forces and the stretching of spacetime) which would lend
authenticity to this report. If it is actually fictitious it has
to be a very carefully and extremely well thought-out account.
