Back to the saucers

In February 2004, a team of Russian and American physicists discovered two
new elements, glimpsed for split seconds at the Joint Institute of Nuclear
Research in Dubna, Russia, and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in
Led by Russian Yuri Oganessian, the physicists made their announcement in
the journal Physical Review C. While their findings have yet to be repeated,
they are considered highly reliable. The two new “superheavy” elements, 113
and 115, provisionally named ununtrium and ununpentium, excite physicists
who think they are generated by exploding stars, and could provide clues to
the origins of the universe.
But this was not the first time Element 115 had made the headlines.
According to another group of perhaps less reputable researchers, it might
be the key that ultimately brings the stars to us.
In 1989, a Las Vegas TV station broadcast an interview with self-professed
scientist Bob Lazar. He claimed to have worked at a top secret facility
called S-4, just south of Nevada’s infamous airbase Area 51, and caused a
sensation when he described seeing nine extraterrestrial flying saucers
stored at S-4.
Lazar, who claims to have studied at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory, states that his job
at S-4 was to “back-engineer” the reactor of one of the flying discs and
find out how it worked. While there, he was briefed on the history of ET
interaction with humankind, and watched a short test flight of the single
According to Lazar, the saucer flies using “gravity amplifiers” to create
“an intense gravitational field” that could “distort space/time”, “bringing
the destination to the source and allowing you to cross many light years of
space in little time”. The power to do this is generated in the craft’s
reactor, which is fuelled by … Element 115.
Whether or not he’s telling the truth, Lazar has stood by his claims and
left the UFO scene behind. As well as running a lab equipment repair
company, he is currently developing a hydrogen fuel generator for home use
and is involved in an ambitious plan to terraform a Martian environment in
an underground nuclear missile silo.
And, if Element 115’s existence is confirmed, perhaps one day it will be
