Good for Bob Lazar!
Bob Lazar making mention of an element 115 before it had been discovered is not that amazing of a feat whatsoever. I remember when I was in high
school many years ago, and we were discussing the way science can synthesize elements above the heaviest "natural" element (uranium). We talked about
someday science may synthesize elements filling the periodic table up through the "hundred-and-teens". The concept that there could be an element 115
is a pretty straightforward and simple idea, and not something the Lazar needed to be "in the know" or have super-advanced knowledge about to have
I mean, elements in the 100's had been synthesized in labs (and found to be resulatants of nuclear explosions) for years before Lazar was even born.
Every so many years, an additional element with a larger periodic than the last would be discovered/synthesized, so it isn't much of a logical stretch
to imagine that someday an element 115 would be found...
...so the idea Lazar's element 115 was an idea that had been considered by many people (even lay-people) many times before him.
