In 1989, a thirty-year-old scientist named Bob Lazar or Robert Scott Lazar, in an interview with reporter George Knapp for the KLAS television station in Las Vegas, revealed that he was employed at a secret base called “ S-4”, to reverse engineer a flying saucer.
Bob Lazar was born on January 26, 1959, in Coral Gables, Florida. A local reporter who interviewed Bob Lazar in 1982 revealed that Lazar claimed to be a physicist at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility and had a deep interest in jet-powered cars. However, further investigation into his life and work history revealed that he was a technician for a random contractor’s firm.
Various reputable media have said that his designation as a physicist is self-proclaimed. Lazar’s claims of being a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the California Institute of Technology were also false. Both universities had no record of him and also given his high school grades, scholars stated that a student couldn’t gain admission to MIT with such low grades.
Bob Lazar emerged as a conspiracy theorist in Area 51 after his interview with George Knapp in May 1989. He gave this interview under the name Dennis and with his face covered. According to his claims, he was employed at “S-4,” a facility he says is located near the facility at Nellis Air Force Base known as “Area 51.” He said the site was built on a mountainside with aircraft hangars and was completely hidden. The site was camouflaged in the mountains.
According to Lazar, he was hired there to help them reverse engineer one of the nine alien UFOs. He says one of the UFOs, which he calls the “Sports Model,” was made of a metal that looks and feels like liquid titanium. In November, he was interviewed again by George Knapp, but this time he revealed his identity. In this interview, he made some amazing claims.
He said the job interview to work at the facility was with contractor EG&G and his employer was the United States Navy. His alleged employment at Nellis Air Force Base has been debunked by both skeptics and the United States Air Force, while EG&G has said it has no record of him. According to Lazar, the supposed vehicle he was given to redesigning was powered by an antimatter reactor containing the chemical element atomic number 115 (E115).
This element was then tentatively designated Ununpentium but had not yet been intentionally created. It was first made in 2003 and was later named Moscovium. He also said that the UFO’s propulsion system depended on a stable isotope of E115. This isotope was used in the UFO to produce gravitational waves that helped it fly and become invisible by bending light around it.
Production of stable isotopes of Moscow has not yet been achieved. All are highly radioactive and decay within milliseconds. Lazar said the UFO has two main levels. According to Lazar, the UFO had been disassembled and the reactor he examined had a sphere or hemisphere on top that radiated a force field that could repel a human being.
There was an antenna on the UFO that went up to the top, and the antenna was surrounded by three “gravity amplifiers”. These were linked to “gravity emitters” on the lower level, which could rotate 180 degrees to produce an “anti-gravity wave”, and the vehicle would travel in this distortion field. The reactor was in the middle of the upper level.
Lazar also claimed that there he read classified documents that stated that Earth had a long history with gray aliens as far back as 10,000 years ago and that these gray aliens belonged to a planet orbiting the twin binary star system Zeta Reticuli.
In 1989, Lazar claimed that the extraterrestrial bodies he saw were about the same size as children and that the saucer chairs he saw were also the same size. Bob Lazar also stated that while he was walking through a hallway of S-4, he looked out the window and noticed two scientists studying face down looking at a creature that had long arms and was probably an extraterrestrial.
Bob Lazar was charged and arrested in 1990 for his involvement in prostitution. The charge was later changed and he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of criminal mischief. As punishment, he was sentenced to 150 hours of community service, a ban on visiting brothels, and was also ordered to undergo psychotherapy sessions.
Again, along with his wife, Joy White, he was charged with violating the federal Hazardous Substances Act in 2006. They were reported to be transporting hazardous materials across state lines. According to Lazar, the FBI and local police raided Bob Lazar’s office in 2017 in an attempt to recover “element 115,” a material Lazar stole from a government lab.
However, Freedom of Information Act documents reveal that the raid was related to a murder investigation into whether or not his company sold thallium to a Michigan murder suspect. The documents also revealed that Lazar was not one of the suspects in the investigation.
Because he could not provide any evidence to support his claims, scientists did not take him seriously and his claims were dismissed as baseless. Because of his “history of criminal activity, his character has been called into question. Furthermore, scholars have not taken his claims seriously because what he said about his schooling was not true and none of the educational institutions he claimed to have graduated from had any records of him.
However, since his 1989 interview, Bob Lazar has stood firm in his claims, and there are a small number of journalists and experts who believe him. Lazar claims that documentation of his career and education has been deleted.
Many individuals have recently shown their support for Bob Lazar and claimed that they believe the government is trying to smear him to further their agendas. Additionally, several students from MIT and CIT have stated that Bob Lazar was in their class together.
So can we conclude that Lazar told the truth, and was later harassed and discredited?
