Along the way, Zvi, John Joseph and Henrik, thanks to the time-honored method of “just staring at” the loop integrand provided by unitarity, also stumbled on a new property of gauge theory amplitudes, which tightly couples them to gravity. They found that gauge theory amplitudes can be written in such a way that their kinematic part obeys relations that are structurally identical to the Jacobi identities known to fans of Lie algebras. This so-called color-kinematics duality, when achieved, leads to a simple “double copy” prescription for computing amplitudes in suitable theories of gravity: Take the gauge theory amplitude, remove the color factors and square the kinematic numerator factors. Crudely, a graviton looks very much like two gluons laid on top of each other. If you’ve ever looked at the Feynman rules for gravity, you’d be shocked that such a simple prescription could ever work, but it does.
Bingo! General Relativity would be the leading theory for gravity, and there is no graviton in the leading theory. In fact the Standard Model of particle physics doesn't explain gravity and doesn't have a graviton:

I don't think that is right.i think you approach this from a relativity standpoint in which there is no need for a graviton.
Even though the Standard Model is currently the best description there is of the subatomic world, it does not explain the complete picture. The theory incorporates only three out of the four fundamental forces, omitting gravity.
However gravitons are still respectible and expected in QM theories and in SUSY theories.

Lazar is a fraud. He ranked 261 out of 369 in high school. Stanton Friedman researched and exposed him. Either believe the real scientist or the fake one.
He worked for Kirk-Mayer at the Los Alamos facility, for all we know as a janitor or similar job. Lazar actually isn't dumb, but he doesn't have the credentials to get a job as a scientist and doesn't know what a physicist would know.

Lazar has been placed in Los Alamos working as a scientist. You don't get to work there in such position being a high school dumbtard.
While I found the video entertaining, there's really nothing in it worthy of making a transcript, in my opinion.

Thank You guys, I understood a majority of the content but I've been counting for transcripts of the dialogue in 37 minute.
TO MARS BY A-BOMB
BBC TWO Wednesday 13 November 2003 11.20pm-12.20am
The extraordinary yet true account of a secret US government-backed attempt to build a spaceship the size of an ocean liner and send it to Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, propelled by thousands of miniature nuclear bombs.
Beginning in 1958 Project Orion ran until 1965, employing some of the best scientists in the world, including the brilliant British mathematician and physicist Freeman Dyson. "Freeman Dyson is one of the few authentic geniuses I've ever met", says Arthur C. Clarke. "Orion isn't crazy. It would work. The question isn't whether we could do it, but whether we should do it".
The film uncovers a contemporary angle to Project Orion. Arthur C. Clarke states that today's generation are once again serious about going to Mars and that NASA has once more become interested in similar nuclear technology as used by Project Orion in the early 60s.
The film has exclusive interviews with Ted Taylor, who ran The Project Orion and who is also the most legendary nuclear weapon designer of all time; and Freeman Dyson who is one of the greatest theoretical physicists and mathematicians that has lived this century.
