I always thaught Bob Lazar was crazy. Literally insane.

I find this all very interesting. Luckily, I'm coming into a position where I will finally be able to confirm or deny this with authority very soon. I am currently entering as a Psychics/Premed double major at Penn State University.

I have enjoyed this little theory for years, among others, but the time has come to put it to the test. I don't know how long it will be before I get the chance, but I have been informed that I may be receiving a research grant which could come in handy. I plan on using my knowledge to explore all the areas of science that have interested me so for years. The areas that other scientists seem afraid to touch.

Frankly, with my current knowledge, this theory seems unlikely. However, I also believe the field to be fundamentally flawed in several areas. So perhaps I'll get the chance to rewrite a law or two. Either way, all will be revealed.

PS: I don't want to step on any toes, but heavier elements do not occur naturally in heavier bodies. That's just not the way it works. Nevertheless, I remain optimistic and open minded towards this theory even if it does seem... Questionable. Dreams forge our reality. Also, please refrain from bashing "real" scientists. When you're willing to spend a decade chasing a doctorate in a field that pays less than real estate or business, then you can bash away. It's easy for armchair scientists to bash "real" scientists for lack of imagination, but I imagine we could pretty easily bash you for not knowing the first thing about which you speak.

But hey, we're all friends here and I damn sure hope that this isn't all balogna. We'll see.

I am a real scientist. I already earned my doctorate. I will bash away as I please, because there are a lot of things about this institution I would change if I had the power. In addition, I've talked with many people who have spent 50 or more years studying various aspects of physics, and many of them would not be willing to draw the conclusion that there isn't a stability island out there somewhere on the nuclear ladder.

But I agree, there is a tendancy to dismiss science at times that is very unhealthy. The key is to know what you know, and know what you don't. Both the spiritual and scientific worlds suffer in that regards today. Our culture of media and books only exacerbates the problem, sadly. Fortunately, it doesn't need to be this way.

Also, I believe Lazar is claiming that our knowledge of heavy nuclear isotopes is incomplete, so that "just the way things work" is based on our incomplete knowledge at this time in the civilian world. Whether or not that is true, well, I suspect most scientists in the field would tell you he is full of ****.

When you say "Psychics" study, what are you refering to?
I am interested in hearing more about your studies, perhaps in a thread about it or u2u?

Rest assured that I wrote you a very long and thought out u2u only to be told I couldn't send it because of my low post count. Coincidentally, it didn't get saved. The summary is that I wasn't really directing that comment on you and I'd love to have some more high level discussions with someone who knows that the theory of instantaneous gravity went out with Newton.

Peace, love, and understanding,


PS: I always find it so lame referring to myself by my board name, however, I do like to retain some degree of anonymity when posting in public forums... I'm sure you understand.

Oh yeah, and I just now realized that my original post said psychics. Hmmmm... Wow, I feel dumb. The short, short version is "physics." Not the other one... It was 2 am. I'm sure you understand that as well.

Ununpentium is the temporary name of a synthetic superheavy element in the periodic table that has the temporary symbol Uup and has the atomic number 115.

Two isotopes are currently known, Uup-287 and Uup-288.

Element 115 also falls in the center of the theoretical island of stability. The most stable isotope of ununpentium is predicted to be Uup-299, containing the theorized "magic number" of 184 neutrons. The most neutron rich isotope to date is Uup-288, which contains 173 neutrons.

I think Bob Lazar is telling the truth. He knew about element 115 BEFORE science "found" it in 2004.

Yes it can be synthesized and it has been. It does not occur naturally.

In feb 2004 it was created by bombarding americium 243 with calcium 48 resulting in 4 atoms of element 115. However within 100 milliseconds they decayed into element 113.
