Who is saying he spend 200 000 on tests? Himself? Ohh that's beliveable! Not!

If this object is brittle then from my experience it was formed under a lower heat if its not then an excessive amount of heat was present during its formation however i cannot find any mention as to if its brittle or not.
The same samples (both perpendicular and parallel cuts) used for optical microscopy were used to measure hardness. A Vickers Hardness number was obtained from a Leco Tester using a diamond tip micro-indenter. Five indentations were made for each sample. The size of the resulting indentations were measured under the light microscope, and averaged. This average value, along with the known applied load were used to come up with the Vicker's Hardness number. For the perpendicular cut, VH = 60. For the parallel cut, VH = 62. The difference is probably within experimental error. These values are slightly higher than pure aluminum, and typical for aluminum alloys.

I'll sell out cheap too. Lets say 1/2 million
I believe Bob was misquoted on the amount of money spent on the object, and this amount was corrected on his old website hardevidence.com. Bob has said he invested his life's savings on trying to tell the story of the object, but I can't confirm the amount he spent.
Joe Fandrich of Mesa State College told us when we were out in Grand Junction, CO that he was going to do a computer simulation of the object's descent, including velocity estimates, velocity when it struck the ground, etc. I was at the site in the desert and saw the place Bob said the object struck the ground, and the slope was 50-75 feet in length to the bottom.
The only information about the C.I.C. file and "Flying Saucer from Denmark" we have was reproduced in Bob's book. It is also on www.blackvault.com. Dr. Jordan gave an interview to KY3 in Springfield, MO and listed some of the elements he was told were in the C.I.C. object in Utah. They were consistent with the elements found in Bob's object.
I feel that two government agents came to the museum in Reeds Spring while I was there and asked questions. We were so sure that we had a security sweep of the museum and office for bugs. Bob talked about his feelings that there was a cover-up in his book. LANL apparantly kept a slice of his object, and a scientist with connections to M.I.T. wouldn't return a piece from the small end that Bob loaned him for tests.
I did a series of tests with the x-ray films and got an exposure showing the two black spots on the film left under the object for 48 hours. We got EMF readings with a German meter that was filmed by the Flame TV crew and shown on the "Jane Goldman Investigates" show. I worked at the museum for two years and the batteries in the turntable under the object had to be replaced at a greater frequency than without the object on it. Unfortunately, Galde Press did not publish the full report on the x-ray tests. There were also exposures around the side of the object at the big end, and Joe Fandrich felt the object contains two sources of radiation inside the big end.
