Basically, I'm asking how you knew they turned. You (or someone else) had to have seen them somehow, and I'm lost as to how this was done.



Thanks for the post Johnmike. I can see that I should have waited until I had all the information I needed to answer your post correctly.

In answer to your question how the alpha particles were seen is Bob used the dry ice to make a fog. the alpha particle made a track in the fog. Since I didn't see it I don't know whether it was white, black or what the track was.

Thanks for your post.


One of the methods used to see the path that radioactive particles take is called Wilson Cloud Chamber. Mr Lear's description seems similar.

In the Wilson Cloud chamber method, observation relies on not observing the particle itself, but rather on observing the path made through a supersaturated vapor or "cloud". When the alpha particle is emitted it creates ions as it moves. The water drops then condense on the ions formed and can reflect a bright light that can be observed by the eye.

However considering the speed that the alpha particle travels ( 15,000 km/s) it would be very difficult to observe its path in a small confined space. However under carefully controlled circumstance it can be done.

I do not wish to champion Lear or anyone else, but the methods he described are very similiar.

Sparky, there is a number of problems with Lear's description:

a) the alpha source, according to Lear, was hung at a distance of 6 to 8 inches from the alleged piece of element 115. The range of alpha particles is much shorter than that. Actually, Lazar tells you that right on his web site. So there was no chance at all for the alphas to move more than a couple of inches away from the source.

b) when you see a track in the cloud chamber, you can't really tell for sure if that was a beta-ray or an alpha particle. Now, if it was beta, this would explain the 6 inches range but then it looks like that Lazar doesn't know what he's talking about (which imho is the case anyway). He insisted they would experiment with alphas.

c) element 115 is a prime candidate to be a source of alphas itself. At least the real 115 certainly is. How come they didn't see bristling tracks coming out of the alleged piece of 115?

d) observing ONE event in nuclear physics counts for nothing. Statistics is way too low.

e) we are told that when bombarded with protons, element 115 becomes 116, which in turn produces anti-matter. Well hello, there are plenty of protons that are bombarding us right now every second, due to cosmic rays. Bob Lazar, not being a physicist, didn't consider that when inventing his silly story. So if that were true, they would have sure observed tracks coming from pions resulting from annihilation.


I have this stuff for breakfast.

"The following hypothetical reaction displays the maximum theoretical atomic mass of an Element 115 Isotope that could be produced from combining an Americium-243 nucleus with a Calcium-48 nucleus. The following reaction assumes no neutrons were liberated during the process of the reaction:

95Am243 + 20Ca48 → 115UUP291 → 113UUT287 + 2He4 → ...

The following reactions are the actual reactions that took place in the laboratory by bombarding Americium-243 with Calcium-48, which resulted in the two Isotopes of Element 115, indicated below, being identified.

95Am243 + 20Ca48 → 115UUP288 + 30n1 115UUP288 → 113UUT284 + 2He4 → ...


95Am243 + 20Ca48 → 115UUP287 + 40n1 115UUP287 → 113UUT283 + 2He4 → ...


References:


Element 113: Information on Discovery

Element 115, UnUnPentium, UUP

The maximum theoretical atomic mass isotope of Element 115 that could be produced in the reaction, above, 115UUP291, would only have 176 neutrons in its nucleus. This isotope of Element 115 is shy 8 neutrons from containing the magic number of 184 neutrons. The two actual isotopes of Element 115 produced by this reaction, 115UUP288 and 115UUP287 contain 173 neutrons, shy 11 neutrons from the magic number of 184, and 172 neutrons, shy 12 neutrons from the magic number of 184, respectively."


This latest scientific breakthrough, however, provides significant credibility to Bob Lazar’s claims rather than discrediting his claims. Bob Lazar’s Element 115 discs used to make the wedge for the “Sport Model” Flying Disc Anti-Matter Reactor would have to have been the isotope of Element 115 containing the magic number of 184 neutrons, therefore, having an atomic mass of 299. The nuclear configuration of this isotope of Element 115 would be identical to the nuclear configuration of the only known stable isotope of Element 83, Bismuth, 83Bi209, containing the magic number of 126 neutrons, except that the Element 115 isotope would have one more energy level completely filled with protons and neutrons. 82 protons and 114 protons are magic numbers for protons because 82 protons completely fill 6 proton energy levels and 114 protons completely fill 7 proton energy levels. The 83rd proton for Bismuth is a lone proton in the 7th proton energy level and the 115th proton for Element 115 is the lone proton in the 8th proton energy level. 126 neutrons completely fill 7 neutron energy levels and 184 neutrons completely fill 8 neutron energy levels. Refer to the Nucleon Energy Level Table for Bismuth and Element 115, below, for the nuclear configurations of Bismuth and Element 115. This stable isotope of Bismuth, Element 83, has very unique gravitational characteristics. Refer to the Henry William Wallace Patent: U.S. Patent 3,626,605, “Method and Apparatus for Generating a Secondary Gravitational Force Field.”

The last two links have precise scientific data so at least the curious can read what is widely accepted as being known about Element 115.

Also these links and the excerpt show what the fuss about Element 115 is from more scientific points of view.

Source: "On the Record" with investigative reporter George Knapp September 12, 1989. Interviewee: Bob Lazar.

Lazar said that the alien craft flew by amplifying gravity waves through use of a reactor and an "alien element"--atomic number 115--he also described this substance as an "ore" not found or synthesized on earth.

" Lazar: Inside that tower is a chip of Element 115 they just put in there. That's a super-heavy element. The lid goes on top. And as far as any other of the workings of it, I really don't know, you know, [such as] what's inside the bottom of it . . . 115 sets up a gravitational field around the top. That little wave guide you saw being put on the top: it essentially siphons off the gravity wave, and that's later amplified in the lower portion of the craft. But just in general, the whole technology is virtually unknown.

Knapp: Now we saw the model. We saw the pictures of it there. It looks really, really simple, almost too simple to actually do anything.

Lazar: Right.

Knapp: Working parts?

Lazar: None detectable. Essentially, what the job was was to back- engineer everthing, where you have a finished product and to step backwards and find out how it was made or how it could be made with earthly materials. There hasn't been very much progress.

Knapp: How long do you think they've had this technology up there?

Lazar: It seems like quite a while, but I really don't know.

Knapp: What could you do with an anti-matter generator? What does it do?

Lazar: It converts anti-matter . . . It doesn't convert anti-matter! There's an annihilation reaction. It's an extremely powerful reaction, a hundred percent conversion of matter to energy, unlike a fission or fusion reaction which is somewhere around eight-tenths of one percent conversion of matter to energy.

Knapp: How does it work? What starts the reaction going?

Lazar: Really, once the 115 is put in, the reaction is initiated.

Knapp: Automatic.

Lazar: Right.

Knapp: I don't understand. I mean, there's no button to push or anything?

Lazar: No, there's no button to push or anything. Apparently, the 115 under bombardment with protons lets out an anti-matter particle. This anti-matter particle will react with any matter whatsoever, which I imagine there is some target system inside the reactor. This, in turn, releases heat, and somewhere within that system there is a one-hundred-percent- efficient thermionic generator, essentially a heat-to-electrical generator.

Knapp: How is this anti-matter reactor connected to gravity generation that you were talking about earlier?

Lazar: Well, that reactor serves two purposes; it provides a tremendous amount of electrical power, which is almost a by-product. The gravitational wave gets formed at the sphere, and that's through some action of the 115, and the exact action I don't think anyone really knows. The wave guide siphons off that gravity wave, and that's channeled above the top of the disk to the lower part where there are three gravity amplifiers, which amplify and direct that gravity wave.

Knapp: In essence creating their own gravitational field.

Lazar: Their own gravitational field.

Knapp: You're fairly convinced that science on earth doesn't have this technology right now? We have it now at S-4, I guess, but we didn't create it?

Lazar: Right.

Knapp: Why not? Why couldn't we?

Lazar: The technology's not even—we don't even know what gravity is!

Knapp: Well, what is it? What have you learned about what gravity is?

Lazar: Gravity is a wave. There are many different theories, wave included. It's been theorized that gravity is also particles, gravitons, which is also incorrect. But gravity is a wave. The basic wave they can actually tap off of an element: why that is I' m not exactly sure.

Knapp: So you can produce your own gravity. What does that mean? What does that allow you to do?

Lazar: It allows you to do virtually anything. Gravity distorts time and space. By doing that, now you're into a different mode of travel, where instead of traveling in a linear method going from Point A to B, now you can distort time and space to where you essentially bring the mountain to Mohammad, you almost bring your destination to you without moving. And since you're distorting time, all this takes place in between moments of time."


This is the actual original source of the Lazar / Element 115 claims. This is it. So everything else is flowing from this data set.

Damn you, Dog, you posted that stuff and it's just too painful on the eyes!

Lazar claims that the efficiency of energy generation is 100% but according to the rest of his interview he has no way of knowing!

He's saying what now? I never quite know how to "understand" this stuff. On one level it doesn't read as something you can intellectually analyse. So I don't. But then there is the temptation to start following the threads of factoids around to see where they lead. Which is nowhere, it seems.

It's a real shame because the Biefeld / Townsend Brown antigravity stuff should be everywhere on ATS instead of which column inches are sucked away by eg Lazar. Oh well.

Thank you for the detailed explanation. I posted my comment after reading up to page 9. I should have waited to read the remaining pages. I have learned a lot from your posts, along with Dogheads & Boreks.

I guess it's true that a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing. To be honest I never even heard about element 115 until I found this thread.
My only regret is that no one I know will ever ask me about it. I could really impress them with what I have learned so far.

Keep it coming guys, This is making up for all the naps I took in Physics class.

Sparky63, please don't offer me any praise. The giants on whose shoulders I stand definitely include Buddha System and Borek but I am a johnny come lately (at least re: posting) to ATS.


Stanton Friedman is illuminating as well:
Bob Lazar = BUNK

Well you are right about the fact that the Biefeld / Townsend Brown antigravity technology is indeed very interesting stuff, so why do you not use this opportunity to start a thread about it?
It must be interesting stuff for many people here on ATS to discus about it I think.
It is it for me.

I would love to see a Biefeld-Brown thread but I would also love to see it begun by someone with a real physics background so that the first post was some good explanation and demystification that could hopefully head off at the pass some of the voodoo science cult nonsense posts.

Firstly, I am a skeptic. But even though there are a lot of preposterous claims here, I have some questions assuming the story is correct:

1. If aliens gave us 115, why would they not give us experimental protocols, research and tools/designs/engineering training on how to use it effectively?
2. Why, oh why did you waste such a huge amount of one of the most valuable elements in the universe (?) on the dumbest experiment ever conceived?
3. What EXACTLY was the protocol of the experiment? Step by step replication instructions please. My university may have access to 115 in the next 5 years depending on grant applications, so I can ask the guys involved about the plausibility of the experiment.
4. What is the rationale for the 90 degree "uturn" of the particle? No force works like that in nature: you wouldn't see a "uturn" of a particle. Assuming you are talking about direction not spin, you would simply see a straight path, and the particle moving out then back. In all honesty I can't see it moving out in the first place if what you claim is correct, but until the protocol is explained I can't surmise. There is no logical explanation to why the 115 would cause a uturn like shape.
5. What was your hypothesis? What did you base your information on to make this hypothesis?
6. Have you or others done any other experiments on 115?

As a research scientist myself I am very skeptical of bob's claims, not yours. I believe you have been duped my friend.

Not only did the "magic moment" occur when you weren't looking, the material has never been verified by an independent source (to convince yourself!), the experiment protocol seems ludicrous and poorly documented and finally the experiment was not replicated in your presence.

John, I once had a "best friend" who I later found out (years later) spent most of his time lying to me and all others who knew him. I learned a valuable lesson early on from which I am grateful: trust *and* verify.

I understand you have a lot vested in this, but you must at least see that this scenario is a possibility. I agree that your explanation probably happened as you saw it, and that there is a possibility of it being correct. It's just the facts don't stack up.

By the way I am on this site because I love scifi and write it myself, but just had to register and post when stumbling on this thread due to its amazing lack of logic.

Doghead and Buddhasystem, Why don't you guys just start you're own thread called- Slamming John Lear and Bob Lazar. This way you could get this attack mongering out of the way every day to more people and feel better about yourselves!! Is it fun bashing people that aren't even on these threads anymore or empowering. Buddha, Someone said you're writing a book!! Let me know when you're book is coming out, I'm assuming the title will be something like "The Knowledge of All Things". I've cleared out 2 complete bookshelves for this highly anticipated release!! We still might be able to save this planet with you're help Buddha!! I've also e-mailed the CLinton camp suggesting Hillary should consider hiring you as a senior advisor!! Think of the possibilities!! When she win's(with you're assistence of course), you could just dispose of Lazar + Lear!! maybe a plane crash, exposing JL as not even knowing how to fly!!
Obviously not every thing John Lear did was documented to the infinite degree!! I'm not a self proclaimed genius physicist but will keep my mind open on the overall issue of 115. The more you attack these guys the more I think you have a hidden agenda!! MAinstream science has been proven over time to be wrong about many things! I'd give you some examples but you already think you know EVERYTHING!! so why waste time. Somebody must have bullied you in school I think! and now you're the resident intellectual bully on ATS!! That being said have a wonderful and enlightening day gentlemen!! and try not to knock down any little kids today on your way to the bank! depositing your weekly check!

Tim Swisher- defender of those that are gone but not forgotten!!!

Because I have no interest in "slamming" John or Bob, and neither does DogHead, from what I've seen. If somebody (and not necessarily John or Bob, there are other actors on this board) posts something which is unfounded and doesn't stand up to a simple critical analysis, then I am indeed interested in pointing this out.


Buddha, Someone said you're writing a book!!


I don't know who told you that, but your info is wrong (suprise?)

I think you would do well if you turn your hysteria dial waaaay to the left.

Well sufusci,

as you can find for yourself on the Web, Bob said that 2/3 of the available stock of "Element 115" were stolen from his apartment by burglars, and now he only keeps the remaining 1/3. So let alone experiments, Lazar apparently didn't care enough for this invlauable material to safeguard it. Laughable.

Swish,

When trying to look at the plausibility of a claim, we should be given as much detail as possible. Look at the awesome thread with the guy who coughed up some metal. He answered all relevant questions, and eventually the truth (even if mundane) was uncovered.

From what I have seen, not even the most basic questions have been answered. All questions that have probed the simplest things about this supposed breakthrough have been ignored. And yes I do expect things to be documented. To the nth degree. Remember, the claim is "this is the most important element in the universe". Would you not document a breakthrough that could change the world forever? And if you wouldn't, surely you simply aren't qualified to claim you are a scientist. Even my year 1 undergrads document better than this!!!!

Heres the story in a nutshell: "We stole it from the most secure place in the world, didn't bother to steal all the research the aliens gave us (to understand what/how to use it), we did a high-school level experiment on it and didn't document a thing. Oh and yeah we have a heap left over which could change the world and we hid it in vegas". Doesn't that seem a *little* strange to you?

Question my agenda if you want. Perhaps I am a government spy. But seriously, the government doesn't care about this otherwise these guys would be kaput. I want and do believe in paranormality when the evidence is good, but I will call BS when I see it.

I can tell you sincerely, EVERY scientist I know (thousands) are looking, striving day in day out for that next breakthrough that will make their career. This would be it for many of them if it were true. I'd love to get my hands on even a gram of the stuff (how about it????) because I would be the most recognizable scientist in the world within a year. Most others would be the same. The claim that "we" as a group are in any way involved in a conspiracy is laughable - we *WANT* to be the center of attention with a breakthrough: its our entire point of being!

Also: there is a vast difference between being open minded and stupid. As the great saying goes: "Don't be so open minded that your brains fall out!"

There has to be some lower limit to what you are going to accept. What if I claimed that pink unicorns materialised via the 4th quadrant hyperbeam and gave me the knowledge of the metaverse. Yours to know and own for 39.95. Would you buy?
