If I understand correctly, 'element 115'/ununpentium can't be stored, it is 'created' and used on the spot. That's why when he was asked during an interview if he'd smuggled any out of A4 he replied 'no comment'. He didn't smuggle any off because it decays quicker than a fly farts. He smuggled the knowledge of how to make it and use it. Doesn't mean he could build a reactor in his garage though, !
It's interesting that they (gov't/military) had a 'sports model' that used 115 as a power source, anyway. I would have thought we should have started on something more basic/non-interdimensional. But then again, maybe we were already up to speed with the basics since the late '40s. Either way it worked for them to have the research compartmentalised. Bob joined the project working on a small piece of the whole without understanding the basics of how these craft may operate.
So, if you were to build your own ship with 'exotic' power and propulsion systems, (compared with what we use today) using his diagrams you might not get very far. There's some basics before you get to that stuff. You'll have more luck making sense of this stuff looking at the Egyptian reliefs instead. I think Stan Deyo is far more on the money, personally,
(BTW, hydrogen powered cars are very real. It's just a particular kind of fuel that gives a big bang for your buck, but it's pretty dangerous to store/compress in your car! You can make just about anything into a fuel source though.)

So he's probably full of it, as are the most well known people on the field.
Lazar says he has degrees from the California Institute of Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1993, the Los Angeles Times looked into his background and found there was no evidence to support his claims. Stanton Friedman was only able to verify that Lazar took electronics courses in the late 1970s at Pierce Junior College. The Times did discover that in 1990 Lazar had pled guilty to felony pandering, declared bankruptcy and listed his occupation as self-employed photo processor on documents. A 1991 Times article reported, Lazar was "on probation in Clark County, Nevada on a pandering charge. His educational and professional background cannot be verified -- a fact he attributes to government deletion of records."
