S-4 (Sector Four) is said to be located at Papoose Lake, in the Restricted Air Force base, Area 51. The site came to public attention when Bob Lazar spoke about working at the site and working on circular disc shapes from other worlds. Nine hangars featuring 9 different shaped crafts are said to be featured there.
Area 51 is a nickname for a military base that is located in the southern portion of Nevada in the western United States (83 miles north-northwest of downtown Las Vegas). Situated at its center, on the southern shore of Groom Lake, is a large secretive military airfield. The base's primary purpose is to support development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems. The base lies within the United States Air Force's vast Nevada Test and Training Range. Although the facilities at the range are managed by the 99th Air Base Wing at Nellis Air Force Base, the Groom facility appears to be run as an adjunct of the Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC) at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert, around 186 miles (300 km) southwest of Groom, and as such the base is known as Air Force Flight Test Center (Detachment 3). Other names used for the facility include Dreamland, Paradise Ranch,[Home Base, Watertown Strip, Groom Lake, and most recently Homey Airport. The area is part of the Nellis Military Operations Area, and the restricted airspace around the field is referred to as (R-4808N), known by the military pilots in the area as "The Box."
According to Lazar, S-4 consists of 9 hangers built into a mountain range just off the Papoose Lake bed. The hangars are sloped at 60 degrees and are camoflauged to blend in with the mountainside. S-4 also contains a number of interior shopping areas in addition to the hangars, such as a briefing room, a laboratory, a nurse's office, a restroom and the entrance area. Although the hangars at S-4 contained 9 extraterrestrial craft, Lazar only had close contact with one such craft, which he nicknamed the "Sports Model". The sizes and shapes of the ET crafts at S-4 varied considerably. The Sports Model had the appearance of a classic flying saucer, while some of the other ET crafts looked like a top hat or a Jello mold. Personnel working at S-4 would reach the base by first arriving at Groom Lake and then taking a bus to the installation via a very long and winding dirt road. Once the bus reached S-4, the bus would drive the length of the hangars and then park at the entrance area, located at the back of the installation. Lazar claims that at one time Russian scientists worked at the base, but were kicked out.
Lazar learned the basics of how the propulsion system of the sportmodel operated. A 223 gram piece of Element 115 is inserted into the top of a reactor where it is bombarded with protons. Bombarding Element 115 in this way transmutes it to Element 116, which in turn decays and produces two anti-protons in the decay process. The anti-protons are led down a tuned tube and annihilate with a gaseous matter target at the end of the tube. The heat from this reaction is converted into electricity via a near 100% efficient thermoelectric generator. According to Lazar, the strong nuclear force of the Element 115 atom extends just past the perimeter of the atom, which makes it possible to access and amplify this force. Lazar claims that the strong nuclear force is a kind of gravity, which he calls "Gravity A", and that gravity amplifiers located at the bottom level of the craft are able to access and amplify Gravity A, producing an extreme distortion of space-time.
